Okay, so my thoughts overall for this event are mixed.

Overall, as far as execution goes, it's way better put together and organized than the music event was. The explorations go well and I am very appreciative that this time around we don't lose exploration items whenever we find the sun tokens like with the voice fragments that took up a full exploration chance and we got no outfit pieces. The companion was extremely easy to obtain as I caught it in the first try and the place where it spawns is pretty obvious as it has the companion's name within the destination's name. Items variation and spawn rate is good, I'm halfway done with both the Summer Fairy and Orchid Dancer so that's a plus and the outfits themselves are allright (not the best, not the worst, but they're allright). The minigame is very easy, after you get the hang of it there isn't too much bother with completing the illustration, were 2 days in and I already have like 75% of the illustration unlocked, as for the community meter, it's finally balanced and I don't think we'll need them to step in and boost it this time around.

Only downside tho, as I said before, is the utter blatant greed they're shamelessly showcasing with 2 paywall outfits. As I stated before, there is no issue with them having a bank outfit to bribe people into using the bank, they've been doing that for years at this point and ppl really got used to the fact that it's (most of the times) the only intriguing outfit, but to have the audacity of putting a second outfit behind a paywall while 1.it's not a previous years' event outfit like Easter's Bohemian outfit or music event's gold only shop outfit (sorry, didn't really bothered checking it's name out, but I am more than sure it was from some older event since I've seen the wig of it in the Antique store) and 2.it's friggin showcased in the illustration, making it feel as if it should've been a bonus for us, but nah, Beemove gotta taunt us with even the slightest details is really annoyin!. I just don't understand why they had to put the Diver outfit as gold only while Summer Fairy and Orchid Dancer are available for manna too! It's really frustrating since I actually wanted it as it reminds me of something from ATLA that the Water Tribe would wear in a warmer climate./static/img/forum/smilies/hmm.png Can only hope that it'll be available during explorations next year, unless there'll be butthurt Karen's in the comments who'll complain about that like they did 1 or 2 years ago when we got a bank outfit from an older Halloween event in exploration during a newer Halloween event (like seriously, what's your ppl's problem if we'd be able to gather some outfit pieces from a bank outfit?! Okay, you paid money during that initial event, but you had the opportunity to choose the full outfit's color scheme while we weren't even able to choose the color variations in exploration and there wasn't even a full proof garantee that we could've gotten all the pieces since they were scattered amongst ton of other older outfit pieces).

I didn't realize there were two outfits behind a paywall. I knew about the moth outfit but having the diver outfit being gold only is rather distasteful. It's brand new and featured in the illustration we should have been able to find it via exploration like the two free outfits.

https://i.imgur.com/MnsKtsK.gif@Saby-chan, the Summer Faery outfit is not available for maana, only in exploration.https://i.imgur.com/Lf7wr1r.gif

Also, during the Music day event, when getting a fragment, we did get the items, too, it just didn't show up on the screen. I remember having pieces in my closet I didn't see my companion finding in exploration. And even if I'm wrong, it was only one exploration a day, if we really didn't get anything but the fragment, it's still like a round when our companions didn't get anything, which can happen.

So far I've only gotten three of the clothing items. Not happy about that, but it could be because my pet hasn't evolved yet and only has 90 energy points.

Do any of the long-time players remember when that was their MO on Eldarya, tho? Like, I remember the first two Halloween and Christmas events we had, there was a bank exclusive outfit, and then another shop outfit that was GC only (I can't remember which outfits off the top of my head, but I think the Snow Queen outfit was a GC shop exclusive the year it came out). So, honestly, I'm not surprised. By no means am I justifying the practice. Just saying, this isn't new.

So far I don't have any major complaints for the event. I don't have any problems with the snake game (although I am VERY grateful that they dropped it from 15 to 10 suns, because it was near impossible to get 15 in that amount of time). I used to play the game on my parents' old Nokia phone, so the mechanics are familiar to me and I've got decent enough reflexes for it. I've finished the illustration already and it's nice.

I like the outfits a lot! Fingers crossed that now that we have a Spring, Summer, and Winter faery outfit, we'll got an autumn fairy outfit maybe at Halloween. I do wish the drop rate were better, especially for the Summer Faery outfit, since that's exploration only. I have a lot of pieces I want from that outfit, and I just don't think I'm going to have enough time/resources to find them all before the event ends. I don't buy the bank outfits unless I'm REALLY in love with them and I definitely LOVE this moth outfit! I have a teeny tiny bit of disposable income, so I'll probably end up purchasing it before the end of the event. Only outfit I'm not super enamored with is the water diver outfit. There are pieces that I like, but I don't like the execution as a whole (I think the fact that the wig doesn't have eyebrows also freaks me out a little bit lol).

I love the companions, too. I haven't gone hunting for the companion yet, since I've been too focused on clothing items, but I'm hoping it won't be too difficult to catch. Also, love the idea of a jeweled bug companion, so here's hoping the meter fills up enough that we all get it!

Nope, Snow Queen was 2019's Christmas event's bank outfit. They never did two paywall outfits before and I've been here since 2016. It was always 1 bank outfit, 2 or 3 free outfits and the previous year's outfits in the store for GC. I am not saying that there were never GC only clothes in the shop during events, but they were always previous events outfits as previously we weren't getting any exploration maps for Music Day, Easter or the Summer Event, so the shop was the only way players could gain the older items for these three events.

Well it seems to me that the drop rate is higher for the older clothing items than for the new. I might not be the only one feeling this way when I read the posts. My companion has a luck of 353 and I think I've collected 20 items from the two new outfits. Which to me doesn't feel like a lot since my companion has an energy of 140 (which means I can send it out to between 9-14 times each day). I've used one small potion yesterday with a total of 330 energy spent on exploration.

I'm struggling collecting the color variations I want from the clothing items since the drop rate is so low. And I feel like they are either not sold on market or overpriced. I'm trying to save up Maana to play the episodes so I don't have much Maana in store to pay for the items I want. I hope they'll do something on the drop rate to make it at least more even between the old and new clothing pieces.

This event? More, please.

Finally, a summer exploration map; the drop rates on the new outfits aren't that high, but I've been keeping a notepad document of where each item drops happen so I can spam areas (at bubble falls I have found 8 different kinds of outfit parts for example, so that explains the drop rate).
I do love the opportunity for more colours of previous event outfits, so YES YES YES!

The Perlifynn companion is so cute, not one I will use, but am still happy I caught it (though the bait didn't drop for me often). Not sure about Scarlry, cool-looking beetle, but that's just my personal preference; the invertebrate lovers will surely adore it /static/img/forum/smilies/smile.png

The snake minigame;
I love it; the simplicity, the slowly increasing speed, the design, if this was one of our daily minigames I'd play it every day. The orb drops for it in the exploration don't disrupt item drops like they did in music day with those voice fragments, so that is a great improvement.
As a result, the illustration was a joy to get -it is gorgeous, despite the showcased outfit being behind a paywall- I'm not sure if I was particularly lucky but I'm getting orbs for days, which, combined with how much I love the snake game, makes the community metre more of an incentive for me to work on. It also seems to be scaling better than previous events, so thanks for that too /static/img/forum/smilies/smile.png

There is always a negative, and blocking off one outfit in the shop for GC isn't acceptable; we have a recharge outfit for those who want it (it's nice, but not my style, but great for buy-lovers) and I don't blame players who are upset at being unable to get Aquamarine Diver. I suppose we can hope it is available either in a shop next year for maana and/or in exploration, like other events have had previous bank outfits for maana (which isn't a debate I'm getting into), so it sucks it is teased in the illustration, but it isn't easily available for free to play players, and at around 450GC, that is basically your bank recharge gone. It's ok as an outfit, but it doesn't blow me away enough to warrant spending my GC on. If it had been available in the shop for both maana and GC, there would be less of a problem.

I'm also going to repeat what I said on the My Candy Love event forum; give us post-event surveys so we can tell you what we did/didn't like, and future events will be more successful. I loved this event, so surely it would be nice for the team to have some quantifiable data from us, the players, to reflect how we feel, and events can be adjusted accordingly. Let us give you feedback, it can give players who aren't comfortable posting publically a chance to be heard. E.g.; our surveys showed 'high number % goes here' of players like having an exploration map in events so each event will have an exploration map.

tl;dr
More events like this; give me exploration maps, cute illustration, great minigame, but don't do another GC only outfit when there is already a recharge outfit. Give us surveys to let you know if we liked the event and how you can improve for us in the future.

I have to say, I like this event so far. I got the illustration without a problem because the sun coins were easy to find and the game was simple enough to win almost every time, especially once they lowered the amount to suns to collect from 15 to 10. I love that they're continuing to give us event maps with items from past years. Also love the adorable companions and hope to get them both before the event is over.

The outfits are very pretty in my opinion, but I don't like that two of them are behind a paywall. But am I the only one who doesn't find any of the outfits to be the least bit summery? Other than the Diver outfit, we have a faery, a dancer, and a moth. Guess I just imagined more aquatic or beach style outfits. They're still very nice though, not gonna lie.

I think my only real complaint is the drop rate of the items on the map. I found the wings location, but I've only gotten one and just a bunch of Calypso hair instead. I also found the bait and the dolphin companion, but the capture was unsuccessful. I kinda wish event companions were guaranteed to be caught as long as you use the right bait. Takes so much extra time and energy just catching the companion you want.

Overall though, very nice and easy event.

I don't know if anyone is worried about the meter
or if anyone already posted about this
but in case anyone is wondering it looks like 10 wins in the game equals +1% to the meter

The Outfits
Okay, I don't like the fact that one of the outfits is a bank outfit and another is an outfit that has to be paid with gold. From my understanding I thought that Beemoov decided to stop with the gold outfits and replaced it with the bank outfit. This seems pretty greedy to me especially when if you look at the MCL Summer event this year and see that we were forced to spend AP in order to even do the event. This just feels like Beemoov is trying another way to suck up a bunch of money from its users.

Summer Faery
I really love this outfit especially the wings (I've been really wanting some more different wings). I really love the petal-like look of the outfit. My other favorite parts of the outfits also like the top, dress, and shoulderpads. I also really like the design of the flower and I love the atmosphere of the butterflies. I usually don't really like two-tone hair, but I actually do like this hair.

The Orchid Dancer
This is another really nice outfit and I like most of the outfit pieces.

Aquamarine Diver
This is an okay outfit, I really like the Tunic and the Diver Suit, but I don't care much for the other outfit pieces.

Moth Lady
I really like this outfit, although I don't think it fits with the Summer theme. I feel like the outfit would fit much better for the Halloween Event. I really like how they gave a skin with multiple arms and I also really like the wings and the dress.

Exploration
I'm glad that we have another map for an event since they usually are my favorite events. I will say that the drop rates of the new outfits, bait, and companions has been quite low for me.

The Companions
I really like the Perlifyn companion and I would like to capture this companion, but I've had zero luck finding the companion.

I don't care for the Scarlry companion, which is probably because I don't really like insects.

The Game
I really liked the game. I found it to be quite easy and the coins to play the game were very easy to find in exploration.

The Illustration
Eh, it's okay. From the boys, only Mathieu seems to be enjoying himself while all the others look kinda bored/uninterested. This is an illustration that I wouldn't mind if I missed, but I still got it anyways since I enjoyed the game.


Overall I thought this was a decent event. I liked most of the outfits and I liked the game and having a map, although I didn't like having both a bank outfit and a gold outfit and the drop rates for the new clothing, bait, and companion to be quite low.

It is in the Shops, you have to pay in Gold.
