    Wow 10 Lotus Blossoms for 50 Fireworks is insane
    Are the devs in touch with whats going on here
    That's 5 hours farming Lotus Flowers
    I get more than 50 Fireworks for 10 mins work on a job

    Leones will say "I will pass it on to the devs"
    Expect a fix next year if you are lucky

    So you're saying, absolutely everything in the game should be simple?

    The reward must be in proportion to the amount of work. 50 fireworks for 10 lotusflowers is just a joke.

    I was sure it was a typo when I saw it, maybe missing a couple of 0's from the reward :)

    Why even bother with this event and deliver 10 lotus flowers for 50 fireworks when you can just buy union officers set and outperform everyone in the next 1.5 at least?

    I chose the wrong character class for the Union officer bs, mistakenly thinking Soldier was for fort battles, and we aren't allowed to change it, so i appreciate a quest just for me, upgraded from Berry Picker to Lotus Picker.

    Why this event have different end date than the normal servers? A lot of people did not notice that.
    And now we have fireworks promotions without event :D

    Yup, I got caught out too, had loads of fireworks to use still, and then they rub salt in the wound offering free fireworks with nugget purchases

    Way to go InnoGames, screwed it up again

    Well, the timer was clearly visible in the event window and the end date was communicated in the announcement.

    The sale is indeed an issue and we'll try to avoid that for future events.

    Yes, you are right. But why change the end date in this one? A lot of users don't notice that.

    it's also inconsistent with how Beta worlds have operated in the past, until very recently. Previously events on Beta started a week ahead, but finished at the same time as regular worlds, why change it? Aren't Beta worlds intended to help find defects before they go into the live code? How does closing the event a week hed help with that intention?

    We started the event two weeks early this time and ended it one week early. Still the same duration it has always been, just moved forward a week. Allowed for more time to test it before it went live and lets us test the distribution of rewards at the end of the event.

    I don't mind the date changes, I was aware of the end date so not surprised by that at all. and used my fireworks accordingly.
    However I do think it is just plain incompetent to continue the daily fireworks quests and have a fireworks promotion AFTER the event is over.
