Fixed The Halloween quest-line is broken!

In quest six of the Halloween quest-line there are three different things you could do to complete the quest. I completed the third part and the quest will not leave. What should I do?

Complete one of the other two. There are 2 conditions that must be met, one of the conditions gives you a choice.

Quest 6:

"Solve this simple negotiation OR Defeat this small army" and "Build 1 cultural building from your age or 2 from the previous age"

Geez, it's so sad to see the 'or'/'and' parts of the quest utterly ignored.

Reading compression anyone? Man, even if English isn't your first language, you should be able to understand the difference of 'and'/'or'.

It's not that difficult, yet plenty of people come here to complain about it. I can't imagine how many actual players (since forum users are such a small % of the games player base) struggle with this simple concept.

Defeat this large army, solve this complex negotiations I have tried both and my army equal pieces, but higher defense and higher attack points and it still wins. Negotiations a waste of my time when it just takes. You all have gone overboard in wasting my time I am now on a quest to discredit you all for a game who does not follow its own rules and get people to quit and have the game removed from the internet. Your mediators do not help either and when I put things in her they do not get answered. Well enough you need to fix it or get off the internet.

What are your attack building levels (CoA, Zeus, CdM, TA)? Do you get attack from any other special buildings? Have you used rogues? Are you auto-battling or battling manually? These are all factors that can influence whether you are successful against a large army during these quests/daily challenges.

Yeah, okay. Good luck with your mission to get the game removed all because you don't understand the basics of how to play it. When you quit, I'm sure you can get your participation award at least.

I am sorry about that. I never meant to waste your time. Will not happen again.

I just answered you. With who do you want me to mediate? Are you having problems in your relationship?

This is pure comedy gold. I can't wait to see all the time he wastes trying to get millions of players to quit or have FoE removed from the Internet. I'm in HMA and can deal with all the stuff this tool's complaining about. Seems this player's gone too far ... in the game without building a strong city.

Now you come here not asking how to improve but to waaah, waaaah, waaaaah instead. You've posted 4 times and all 4 comments you've ever made have been responded to. It seems it's not help or an answer because it's not what you want to hear. Tough. No, you're not going to get FPs back from GBs when an account is deleted. Plain enough for you?

And yes, it sounds like your options are to get better or quit. Seems you're not interested in getting better, so your only option left is to quit.

Glad you are a hard core player. I have built my city up and not insult me saying waaaah waaah, so what ever you have a right to your opp-ion . I have watched hours of video and asked for help in understanding what can I do better. So in my mind there is a bug in the system...... plain and simple as for you you need to go to course and learn how to be nice to folks and not so OLD AND GRUMPY so go back to Snow White and the seven Dawarfs attitude grumpy

I'm with you on this one. Every professional sports league is bugged because I couldn't make any teams. Much easier pill to swallow than just being an average athlete.

So does anyone have a city on Noarsil that can go look at his city and see what he's doing wrong?

Here you go. The first problem I see is disconnecting everything in his city except for Traz and CdM. So afraid of plunder he doesn't produce any resources. How is that the game's issue?

I guess it's only old and grumpy (mature?) people who are willing to call B.S. on you. Your first post was late June in the Automatic Account Deletion thread asking if you'd get FPs back, completely ignoring the 2 pages of responses to others who'd asked the same thing. Then you came back on July 14th screaming that no one had answered your question, completely ignoring the intervening 4 1/2 pages of posts where that discussion had been beat into the ground and it had been pretty well determined that no, you wouldn't get anything back. Your post was then directly replied to and you were told just that. But no, no one responds to you. B.S.

July 14th you also created the "Game is getting too hard to play" thread where you laid out your woes, thoughts about quitting, and that you were starting to tell people who asked you about playing FoE, "The game is too hard." This stimulated 5 PAGES of posts with a ton of suggestions about how to strengthen your city and get better at the game and for 5 PAGES you never came back. No questions, no rebuttals, not a damn thing. Looking at your city, you never even came back to read the responses, never mind take them to heart or implement them in your city.

Then you come here today saying the same thing you did over 3 months ago, now adding a personal vendetta to the mix. You're going to make it your lifelong work to make people quit the game and have it removed from the internet for wasting your time. Talk about a waste of time. Yet you fail to see the humor and lunacy in that statement. That you think in any world, even your make believe one, you could wield that sort of power and influence is laughable. And who's the one sounding OLD AND GRUMPY?

So no, don't tell me you're interested in getting better, you're not. You saw the thread title and came here today hoping to join a chorus of poor players placing the blame for their failure in the game on Inno and a bug. Sorry to tell you, there is no chorus. Surprise! You're singing this one solo and I've heard this tiresome tune too many times before.

So now, like the last time, I expect you'll retreat back into silence and not do anything to improve your game or your city. Please, prove me wrong. I dare you. What have you got to lose? I double dog dare you.

Or should we expect a reprise for the Winter Event?

What @RazorbackPirate said. I second all of that. It was a much longer and more thought out response than you deserve as well. I say it's time for you to just quit and move on. This game is too difficult for you.

Anyways, see you again in 3 months when you decide to crawl out from under your bridge to yell at us again.

You should get together with @lemur. You could message him every three months about how hard the game is, and he can message you back to say it doesn't matter because Inno's servers/software/programmers are crap and the game's unplayable anyway. And then the rest of us won't have to be bothered by either of you.:)

I wish I had posted a screenshot of @handsomesirSteve city. I just deleted it out of the City Planner a couple of weeks ago. Regardless, it looks like he listened to none of the advice I gave him back in July.

The game isn't hard- really it isn't- it is pathetically easy now that we have continual events, Daily Challenges, GE, and other stuff. If you think it is hard, you should have played back when none of that existed.

So, instead of ranting, why not ask for help?
I already pulled your stats. You have three GBs listed- level 5 OBS, level 13 SBC, and level 13 Zeus. I pulled your city on the planner and see you have more. The fact that they are on the planner but not on the database means they are are below level 4. (Planner shows a CdM and CoA both at level 2) Build those up. They are a waste of space at a low level.

Get rid of random set pieces. Unless you have the full set, they aren't worth it. Also get rid of low level event buildings (like the level 3 Grand Bridge). They aren't worth it until you get the maxed, or very close to it. No happiness GB. Get one so you can kill all of the decos and cultural buildings. (Or since it looks like your people aren't happy anyway, stop wasting space with them.)

There is a lot you can do to improve the efficiency. Instead of throwing a tantrum, try asking.

I agree, I have ran into this and I love the game, but they do take sweet time responding so I just have to move on, then they come back with how I did this or that, but too late I completed both, even though it was an OR and I did one or the other and still didn't clear, so I do feel it is a bug and anyone that has not had this happen...lucky for you and I have been playing and helped other Guild members before they ever got a response back from moderators, so I do understand as a player too.
