    Same. No way I would have gotten all that I got if I didn't play wheel carefully.

    On top of the 23 fps worth I've laid out in my city I also won two elephant fountains - will lay them down in like FE or smth.

    I ended up really enjoying this event. I found it a lot of fun to load up the planner and try to figure out different combinations of event buildings and making the most out of every ticket. Like Algona I wonder if they realized how much advantage could have been taken with the different combinations. I would not be surprised if from now on set buildings are 'locked' to only work in the intended combos. I lost count but I think I was able to add about 50 FPs worth of buildings. That includes 7 palaces, 11 elephant and a side assortment of towers. I wasn't going for nearly that many but with the length of the event I ended up with much more than I planned. I did buy diamonds once during the sale but I see even those that didn't really having no issue.

    The only downside is 1) The need for 1ups and renos later on. And, 2) This set looks rather bad in multiples my city appears very disorganized but every square is utalized to the best of my ability.

    4 of those palaces were planned, 3 more just happened. The full Elephant set was also an accident but since I got it I put it down.

    I'm curious to see the most palace sets anyone has seen. So far the most I've found was 16.

    I enjoyed it. Didn't finish Elephant set though :( I think a minimal % expansion on wheel would have been great, but still a fantastic lot of prizes it was hard to choose what to spin for. Won way too many palace pieces as opposed to anything else, but that's the luck draw in a casino game set up. Overall was fun and cool. I looked forward to my daily tavern ticket spin and had feeling of loss when it was gone.

    Oh, I should have realized it was a reference to those gigantic annoying arrows Inno seems to have a fetish for. At least it went away for good this time once a player spun once on the wheel.

    13 Maharaja Palace and 13 Elephant Fountain Sets placed in my Arctic Future City.
    I included the same picture with a postimage link, so you can see the detail.

    Praxis.

    I spent two months preparing for this.
    All my old era goods are finally refined all the way up as far as they can go.

    Now my city makes only Arctic Future goods, Forge Points, Medals, Supplies, and an obscene amount of Coins.
    I have three Arctic Future Military Barracks, along with my Champs Retreat and Rogue Hideout.

    4 Million Point jump in one day.
    91 Forge Points, 5121 Medals and 165 Arctic Future goods from Sets and Pole Houses every day.
    Attacking units are at 195% / 91%.
    City Defenders 30% / 693%.
    Coin boost 436%.
    Supply boost 424%.

    For the first time ever, all my productions are set on the same, 24-hour timer.
    Makes everything a lot easier.

    But that one collection will be a Whopper.

    Now you have some unnecessary gbs to drop, add Fp generating gbs, push those super high, and you can be a top player. I'm jelly of your coin boost you have me by 100%

    Thank you.

    I don't use city planner programs.
    I do it all in my head before I rearrange my floor plan.
    My 3 Arctic Future Military buildings will provide me with population and space I need it for future quests and events.
    I can delete them, do what I need to do, then put them back afterwards.

    The only thing I don't like is the giant, ungainly block of Watchfires in the heart of my layout.
    Since I for the most part, went back to one-lane roads, my floor plan became much more efficient.
    As I gain more expansions, I'll move those Watchfires out of the center and then have room to grow.
    At 5,000+ Medals every day, those last several expansions will come easier and faster.

    I added an Oasis and two Tribal Squares that I recently won, to fill the space and provide me with 15 more AF goods every day.
    I will install Innovation Tower in the near future.

    3e1bfdc601598937a5c45f42be475afa.png

    That will give me room to add more Great Buildings.

    Summer event really screwed up the neighborhood switch up.

    Earlier I posted that they should start the event right after a switch up if it is going to go on for more than 2 weeks. Now, the first Monday after the event, we still don't have a switch.

    For those counting, we've had the same neighborhood for 35 days.

    We were just discussing this in Guild Chat: these hoodies, while weak in troops and rich in plunder, I am tired of staring at them. I want fresh blood.

    Hi everyone. Tough question here: so let's say you have 2 Maharajah Palaces and 6 2x2 structures that are part of the palace and you want to align them such that you have one maharajah palace with two of the 2x2 structures on each side, thereby receiving the full benefits provided by the Maharajah Palace. Now, can you place the other maharajah palace on the opposite side of two of the 2x2 structures and then place your last two on the opposite side of the newly placed palace? Will this give you the full benefit on both palaces? I hope this question makes sense. Hard to phrase.
