I had really wanted to get 5 boats. I put my city into the planner and decided what I could delete to fit in as many as possible (even deleted RaH to do it) I always buy diamonds for the summer event during the sale, not just because it's my favorite event but also I think it's important to support the company. Even if I don't always agree with them I'm still playing the game. However I've found even with the extra doubloons and diamonds it still wouldn't be enough, I wish the pieces were available on the wheels even if it were just a few pieces on a few wheels so it would feel like I'm looking for something. I think part of that is hindering my enjoyment of the game a bit. I was lucky to get the 3 sunken treasures I wanted, and could fit so now I'm just spinning randomly for pieces. Some of the wheels have more double and triple pieces than others so I've been trying to aim for those but since I know it's not going to make much difference I'm not really paying much attention. I'll end up with 2, maybe 3 but I won't be putting that 3rd down as one on it's own isn't worth the 3 palaces I'd need to delete to fit it there on it's own. I think the dynamic of the game would have been much better had pieces been available on wheels, people would have something to shoot for other than the standard SoK or the very rare sunken treasures. There are also no doubloons on the wheels either like tickets were available previous years. The changes in beta to the boats certainly made them very worth while to me however summer event as a whole feels like it has been quite downgraded. I don't like how the boats are nothing more than pay to win, 1 you can get with the game but if you want multiples you need to pay. In last years event if you wanted multiples you needed to be lucky and be on all the time to stalk the wheels. If you bought diamonds you had much better odds at winning many palaces but that wasn't the be all end all, I ended up with more palaces spending much much less than others last year just from wheel stalking. Unfortunately once you play this game long enough most of the wheel prizes don't excite you. You have more than enough of everything offered and room for none of it. Things have to be good enough to delete other things to put them down. I wish they put a bit more focus on non building prizes, for instance there is only 1 large FP prize and that is only 20 points. Why not a 50 or a more rare 100? Rogues are silver prize for a single rogue... There just isn't enough variety between the wheels to make them interesting, to me at least. In beta they said they made the wheels better, I think they may have added some more sunken treasures and soks among them but apart from that it seems all they did was make the silver prizes gold and call it a day.
