    Hi Mepps.

    Why is the Summer event for this year only 2 weeks and the Sand Dollars haven't been adjusted to match last year or is this a glitch since last year Summer event lasted 4+ weeks. Picture posted from last year with date.

    This year says from June 9th to June 23rd???

    He did say at some point that some events (if not all) will be out max 2 weeks due to players complaining of it being out for too long or something along these lines.

    100% this

    That's fine, but like Spring the mark yield needs to be adjusted accordingly, pretty stink to just change this without any notice.

    Hi Caroline, then the marks for said event needs to be adjusted like they did with the Spring Event, the Summer event marks or Sand Dollars do not reflect the shortened time frame. Thank you.

    140 marks that we would get in the 2 weeks for this years seasonal is not enough to even get everything for this years stuff. Really hoping this is a mistake and for it to be corrected soon, with either extending the event or increasing the marks we get a day. Doesnt seem fair to players and it forces people to buy the marks off the market place.

    I’ll raise my hand as someone who prefers 2 weeks! I like it short and sweet.

    No objection here to adjusting the marks accordingly though.

    We have been toying with shorter seasonals. I'll double check any cost adjustments made it in.

    Why can't summer seasonal be 4 weeks? Next seasonal after this isn't until October. That's a long time without a seasonal.

    Thanks Mepps, was this a change of mind since summer was put on test with the reward pricing?

    I ask, curiously because are you meaning new rewards will also be decreased from what we previously saw them as to reflect to decreased time? Otherwise surely the marks recieved from doing the content should be increased to have the alternative but similar effect?

    Thanks again

    Update: we missed getting the cost adjustments in.

    We will extend the Summer Event to four weeks, ending July 7, and we will not make any cost adjustments.

    Personally, I massively prefer longer seasonals. The longer the event the more they feel like fun side stuff to do at your leisure, you have plenty of time to get everything so if you miss a few days for whatever reason, that's fine, no need to worry.

    The shorter they are, the more they feel like a requirement/work. It's you need to get these done or miss out and wait a year and likely be further behind as well.

    I love the seasonals, I love getting cool new stuff every time one comes around, so I would very much love it if they changed back to being longer. :D

    Same here, so long as everything can be done in those 2 weeks, i prefer it vastly over an entire month.

    I do remember people and myself (please don't hate me :() talking about the length of seasonals quite a while back in this thread, but i don't know if that actually affected their decision making, i do remember another thread were this was being discussed, but i can't find it anymore.

    Thanks Mepps, that's great news.

    100% agree with this perspective, the seasonals are much more enjoyable when they're not squeezed to make you feel pressured :)
