So, everyone loves a good event. Everyone loves a good challenge. What bothers me about the Christmas event is that it was absolutely impossible to come even close to completing 25 tree levels without spending a lot of money.
I spent the 7k gems to unlock the better rewards. I bought the Christmas special package. I bought the daily to get extra action points. I spent a couple thousand gems on additional action points in hopes of getting enough ornaments from barbarian raids to complete the event. I spent several million rss in the victory market on thousands of action points to raid barbarians non stop to get the ornaments. In addition to all this, I stayed out of the kingdom kill event in order to focus on completing the Christmas event.
In short, I spent over 10k gems as well as real dollars in extras in hopes of trying to complete the event. I am incredibly active and have worked my butt off to get all the way through 25 levels and in the end was not able to finish lvl 24.
I have seen a lot of people in chat very upset with how scammy and impossible this event was in baiting players to spend a lot of money to in the end not even be able to complete the event.
I would like a refund on my gems and dollars, and on top of that I would like to suggest that the game devs make sure they do not create events that require you to spend so much money to have only a slim chance of finishing events.
