    Except they didn;t make it this way. I already have a level 10 WF in the bag in one city once I get the last quest upgrade, the other city I expect the same thing, I'm just waiting for another SoK DS to use my 1.9k of remaining scrolls.

    The key was to dig only for Idols scooping up whatever tangential vases got uncovered along the way. Those who didn't remain focused on Idols will likely moss out on a level 10 without diamonds to make up for it.

    I may have to use diamonds this event, but usually I don't. I don't buy diamonds, I get them from GE. I've got about 8K right now. You don't have to buy diamonds to use diamonds, you just have to earn them through doing 64/48 in GE.

    But your feedback is based off of a false premise- that it requires diamonds for a full level building. I will have a complete level 10 by the end with no diamonds and all it took was being smart with the blocks i chose. Everyone could have made that choice

    It's obvious that Inno can't make the event minigames require strategizing (even a little) to get a fully leveled main event building or a significant portion of the playerbase will fail to get enough upgrades, and think you have to spend diamonds to get enough.

    Mount Killmore, Noarsil, Rugnir, Sinerania
    Only 3 days left. Really, really hoping that Reno Kits & wishing wells are among the remaining DS.

    For those mistakenly claiming that you have to use Diamonds to get a fully upgraded World's Fair, I play on 6 worlds right now. I just added the 6th, so it won't get the fully upgraded World's Fair. The other 5, however, which range from Iron Age to Oceanic Future, will all get a level 10 World's Fair. All without using Diamonds. All without even strategizing until I was at least 1/3 of the way through the event. All of them are at level 8 (or have the upgrades currently to get to that level), and all of them will get one more upgrade from the idols and one from completing the quest line. Putting them all at level 10. Without Diamonds. And without reading ahead on the quests. And without racing through the first set of quests to get to the daily ones. I am currently caught up to the dailies on all but my newest world, and anticipate no reason that I will fail to complete the remaining quests as they come. No Diamonds have been or will be used.

    In case that paragraph is too long for you, all 5 of my cities that were active when the event began will have level 10 World's Fairs at the end of the event without using Diamonds and without knowing the quests in advance and without "strategizing" until I was well into the event.

    2 Cites, 2 lvl 10 WF, no Diamonds spent.

    Ask for help at the start of an Event. That works a lot better then complaining at the end of the Event.

    I don't run any productions on them when they aren't being used for quests.

    And even with focusing on idols to get the level 10 World's Fair, you can still get a good many of the other vases, because they happen to be on the way to the next idol. I'm getting to level 10 in both my cities, without spending diamonds, and I still got lots of vases as well. Including the Carousel in both worlds.

    Thought this event was great...fun with good rewards but no league bonuses at the end?

    I think one of the mistakes people are making is uncovering all the sand. Since they found a few prizes in "blank" sand they decided to try to uncover it all. That and they're trying to get pots/vases as well. I just need the last quest for level 10 like a lot of people here, and I was wasting a lot of resources trying to get the sand blaster achievement. Unfortunately I won't get sandblaster platinum!

    Hmmm...go for the SoK or take a chance on the prize tomorrow? I was kind of hoping they would've saved the SoK on the last day.

    Well if tomorrow's prize isn't worth it I can always just go for idols and ignore the vases.

    2 Cities, a Level 10 World's Fair, 4 Carousels in both, and a whole bunch of FPs and other stuff, plus multiple SoKs today. Great event. Congrats to the dev. team for a job well done.

    Four cities, will have fully maxed Worlds Fairs in each plus carousels, no diamonds needed. Focused on idols using mostly the 330 tool pack, picking up good stuff along the way. Loved the dynamite! Thanks Inno, this one went a long way towards clearing the bad taste of the carnival event.

    Not only the dynamite, but the goofy achievements for digging and blowing stuff up. Too fun.

    Seemed a little too easy in the end. Wound up with 30-40 more idols than needed in each of my cities while taking every vase along the way. I was prepared to come up a little short by going after all the vases and need to spend some diamonds but it seems it got rebalanced after beta to have a few more idols.

    I do commend adding new minigames for events though. This was the most interesting event mechanically in a good long while.

    I completed my 6th week into this game today. I am playing on two servers now and managed to get level 10 World's fair on both servers (main in IA, other in BA) without spending any diamonds at all.
    I really enjoyed this event, got 19 SoKs and 2 rogue hideouts on my main. 9 WWs, 3 WW shrink kits and 2 SoKs on my diamond farm which is still very new.
    I liked the idea of using tools to dig in the sand and strategically digging process which would allow for better rewards for those who play carefully.
    One thing that I could complain about is the differnece in the number of tools obtained when bought 1 piece at a time, vs the 180 package vs the 330 package. This really only made the 330 package viable while others felt overly expensive and therefore not worth it until at the last day of event.
    Overall I was really happy with the event, being a new player, getting a 30 FP per day increase in production from the event will really help me out in leveling up my GBs progressing through the game. I can't really compare it to past events, except for maybe the spring event during which I was completely clueless and the event was already going on when I unlocked events. But it was fun and acquiring the world's fair felt fairly balanced.
