    So for four days the event was bugged and now they fixed. That's good news then /s
    Before removing the energy from scouts, I was at 11k and still had 10 berries left. Still think this event was doable without spending gems (if not reaching 30k at least +25k)

    Instead of putting these events behind a paywall why don't they offer non p2w deals. Like cosmetics, visual effects for ss, banners, portraits or even inventory spots. And then I'll gladly buy them. For example Path of Exile is using this model for years.

    Not a glitch, now it gives a single trophy fragment as a big FU from Rovio who true to form nerfed a good thing. As soon as it became obvious to them that it was just enough to allow people to finish 30k without spending any gems, bye buy! 5 energy per scout does not seem like much at first but it really adds up over 10 days (or would have)…

    TOTAL BS ROVIO!!!

    Here is the math.
    - 9 days 18 hrs is the total time. 234 hrs.
    - You need 30K for the personal event. That breaks down to 3333 pts per day is needed, who cares about the 18 extra hr for now.
    - 8 hrs to regenerate 100 charges. You get a bonus of 50 charges for daily task. Total 350 charges. 35 quick plays.
    - You get a total of 1750 gems in personal prizes. Clan will give you another 1000 gems early-ish. Don't forget you get you get 550 gems from arena for showing up.
    - Forget the clan + arena earnings for now. 1750 gems will give you 17 recharge , 100 gems for 100 charges each. If you dip into the arena rewards you get another 6 recharges.
    - Let say your flock is not that good and you can get to mid-30s in levels for "Quick Play". Lvl 36 gives 70 pts each play.
    - 3333 divide by 70 rounded up to 48 plays per day.

    The amount of 30k for 9+ days is very reasonable. If you want to get it done in couple days like some of us.You will need gems to pay for your impatience. Where is the pay wall? You can even get your sleep overnight!!!!

    Why do so many people use this argument of using the reward gems to achieve the 30k? If they are true REWARDS then you should not have to use them to complete the event. You can choose to use gems if you want & good for you if you do (that's what Rovio wants) but a proper event should never require it...

    Unfortunately absolutely free is not possible in any case. Someone somewhere needs to get paid. Dipping into the winnings (1750 gems in personal prizes) isn't much to ask for. You have another 550 gems from arena also just for showing up. 8 hrs of recharge allow you to have other activities throughout the day.

    We would not complain (as much) if the scout location recharge was never there in the 1st place.

    Free-to-Play games need to find an in-game balance as to how much they can give you. Too many freebies will put the maker out of business.

    But it was, so taking it away 1/3 of the way through the event is just BS greed & bad (unethical) business. I swear that Rovio does this crap on purpose to piss off more savvy players enough to quit.

    Also, none of the events prior to the last insane Island ever required gems spending to acquire the personal Gold Ticket (they just took dedication to play). If they want to push past that ticket into the impossible (free) stratosphere to get more rewards or an elite bird (like in the clan rewards) then I am all for that.
    But screwing us in the middle of an event is unacceptable. If it had been the other way around to begin with they never would have changed it...

    If Rovio go back to crappy prizes like meager amount of evolution materials (and other useless junk) instead of gems, that will be the true "screw us over"!

    What I am more pissed is there isn't Arena rules again!??!?!!?
