tl:dr most not happy with wheel change, no tickets to find in city, though they recently changed to giving 1 Ticker per Town Hall collection, and large 5pc sets

Added an extra Elephant Fountain Gate just because and a Watchfire for ardak kumerin, the two separate sets have no benefit other than for aesthetic purposes from placing them next to one another.

Personally I won't be going for the sets on any of my live cities. They don't provide any benefit to alt cities and too large with not much benefit to play cities. So that just leaves going for some gold ring prizes which I doubt people who don't spend diamonds will get much of. Good luck though.

Question :
if Western or Eastern Palace tower is not connected to road, are those two still count connected to sets power if those two place on each other side?
That's a really good question, but don't you have king/queen/ruins or garden set where you can test it yourself?

If not let me know and I will check for you on my collection time tomorrow evening.

main building connected to the road will acknowledge the other unique pieces to provide the full bonus regardless if the sub structures are connected to the road they just have to touch the main building

proof main building is connected to the road
Screenshot 2017-06-25 at 1.48.36 AM.png
the elephant gate and memorial need road connections to enable the perks they provide
they are shown disconnected

now hovering over the main building and you can see the main building has all 4 perks enabled even tho two are listed as disconnected

"Some of the most valuable prizes aren't on a single wheel 4 times, but instead are spread throughout multiple wheels."

Bat Feces. Pure greed on my part, but I've figured out ways to maximize luck and scored very well in summer 15, summer 16, and fall 16 Events. Maybe it's better for the "these Events are all about luck and Diamonds, there's no skill involved" people, but I think I got screwed. Just another damn case of people getting what they ask for. Enjoy it. Next time, think before you ask.

Oh, well.

Looking forward to the second experiment of set buildings in a major Event. I guess Spring counted? Let's see how it works again. Easy prediction, folk will not be happy. But then INNO could give out Gold Bullion and folk would be unhappy about the weight.

As long as SoK and HoF are each available multiple times through out the Event and there is a decent chance that multiples can be won, and there is some way to bring skill and brains to the Event I'll be happy.

Good luck to all players!

Sounds like it favors active players then. Probably best to save up tickets for a blowout day and have at it.

Not sure I will try for either set - both require a lot of space since have to have roads all around, and I believe that, on a per-square basis, they don't give you anything better than what's already out there.

Likely better off going after SoKs and the such like Alonga said.

As a non- diamond player- I think that sadly, there aren't enough tickets from the event quests to get a set. You would have to buy them..... So I'm reluctantly doing this event knowing that I won't get the full set. If it helps, I liked Inno's system for the Winter and Valentine events, where you could earn event currency like FPs and from your town hall. I wish they would implement that on all major events, but that's just me.

Reading the quests for the Summer event; I am done after the first three. Quest 4: Building 4 residential buildings from your age. I am not deleting a premium building only to rebuild it four times. I also will not delete other buildings to clear space to erect said buildings. I guess at my level, I can quit worrying about any event and just play the game my way.

Thank you for playing Forge of Empires and... enjoy the Summer! :)

Sincerely,
The Forge of Empires Team
You’ve had a good game here. And, in the beginning, I bought Diamonds, because the game was exciting and SATISFYING. But that is steadily changing.


Since you now insist on creating all these space-hawging "sets" as event rewards, would it KILL you to make EXTRA LARGE MEDALS PACKAGES amongst the regular prizes in this and forthcoming events?


The game grows steadily less appealing the more we players feel we're being outright extorted for Expansions / Diamond purchases by Mafia Bosses.


And it’s nice of you to restrict the best stuff to ONE per WHEEL this time, too. Certainly, none of us have enough useless crap we didn’t want in the first place clogging up our inventory from random crapshoots, so why not make that even worse too.


No wonder you skipped the Soccer Cup Event this year. It must have really panicked your millennial butts last year when you saw all of us saving up Cups to outright purchase only those things we wanted in the first place.


Oh, and thanks for giving us access to less tickets this time as well. Finding sets of 5, 10 or more in our respective wildernesses again just makes this too much fun. And, it might actually help. God forbid.


And the more you start restricting other options to acquire more and cheaper expansions to make room for all this new stuff – and the more you restrict opportunities to acquire those things we want and avoid being stuck with yet even more of those things we don’t - you’re definitely and slowly killing this game’s appeal, customer loyalty and P.R.


I keep hoping for a personnel change as things just keep getting subtly worse (Don’t they have a McDonalds in Germany now? They’re always hirin’, ya know). Because if there isn’t a change in personnel or policy and this trend isn’t sharply reversed, a lot of other players are not only gonna stop buying Diamonds, they’re gonna start bailing eventually as well, and your new player count is gonna start a steady and alarming decline as former player word spreads.


You attract and retain players and PAYING CUSTOMERS who buy Diamonds by making a game enjoyable, exciting and SATISFYING, not by making it steadily more and more disappointing and frustrating in an attempt to EXTORT Diamond Purchases – with a sarcastic smile in your videos.

I'm with others who are concerned as to exactly when this shindig starts and finishes.
If Panecea could get back to us with the times stated in UTC it would be really, really nice! Of course that would be breaking with tradition but it is worth a shot ....
