His complaint is valid. I have read it here tons of times. I have felt the same way. Sure you can choose, but it still doesn't make it right. You come up with the way you think is best to play the game and than the events mess the whole thing up. Sure, I dont' do all events because of this and that is a choice, but the complaint is valid. The game should encourage one to play the game wisely and should not sabotage it with events. I have pushed myself into higher levels because of events and paid the piper for it. I no longer do it, so the game has encouraged me NOT to do events. The game needs to reads these complaints to see that they are discouraging participation in events because not all people will mess up their game play to do them. I skipped quite a few events so far this year and I skipped them in all my cities. We can add this to the aspects of the game that don't make sense, such as uneven hoods. Valid complaints by players and no good resolution by the game.Since you aren't required to do the events you still get to choose. What you actually mean is you can't get what you want out of the event without doing something you don't want to do. Still on you.
