Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Trout's Spring Festivities Conclusion!

Congratulations on completing our first major event!
Thanks to all of your hard work, we were able to collectively
make Trout's play venture a resounding success!

We would like to thank everyone for their diligence in testing out the mechanics of our first major event as well as our event feature's interface. Through all of your efforts and feedback, we've gained a lot of valuable information that we'll be taking note of for future events!

Curious about some of the data that we gathered from the event? Here are some interesting stats from the community!

2745
users participated, resulting in 687 users qualifying for the Elite Carry-Over Prize!

Outstanding community effort, everyone!

According to player feedback, we intend to improve future events of this type in the following ways:
  • The event won't end as soon as the bar is filled, this gives everyone time to get to the tier they want if they plan ahead, and users won't be "taking away" points from others!
  • There will be "overtime" stretch goals that unlock additional prizes after 100% is surpassed! This will add more to look forward to and strive for if the goal is reached early.
  • Rankings for tied scores will be based on the user that achieves that score first. Currently it is ordered by ID#, but our coders have reassured us that ties are always "friendly" (both users are awarded the higher prize).
  • There will be more story and art based things for event outcomes in the future!
Additionally, we are working on a variety of new event types for the future!
  • A collection based event where you collect points throughout the site in order to spend them at an event shop that opens up at the end of the event.
  • A team-based event where you pick a team/side to earn points for and try to collectively acquire more total points than the other teams by the end of the event!
  • A community based event where you earn points by interacting in some way with other users and spend the points on rewards afterward!
  • Official side contests/raffles happening on the forums during seasonal events related to the event/season!

Please visit the event page hub to view your prizes!

A small note about carry-over prizes: Event trophies and the Spring Bloom item will be redistributed to accounts that qualified for these prizes after the Beta wipe, so they will be waiting for you on your account when you login again during official launch.

If you weren't able to participate as much as you would've liked, don't worry! The seasonal nature of this event means that it and all of its associated prize items will return in official launch. With the event over, we are hard at work on implementing the 4th town update, as well as a test run of how the monthly chance machines might work. Stay tuned!

    I was really cynical about the event at first because I didn’t think we’d finish, but I take it all back! Everyone did their best!

    CONGRATS TO EVERYONE!!! So exciting! I went to bed when it was 97% and I really didn't expect it to be complete by the time I woke up. Great job to everyone! Thank you, everyone involved behind the scenes, for such a fun event!

    i fell asleep at 98% and i knew y'all could do it but wow!!! also out of curiosity will the clothing items that don't carry over become available after the beta ends in some other way? just wondering since it seems like a waste of pretty art otherwise.

    Congrats everyone we all did an awesome job smashing through that bar! Especially when we broke the site :P

    Congratulations, everyone! The stats on that point spread is a little nuts - everyone in Gold Tier earned that top 25% prize, along with a few of the upper Silvers, too. Amazing!
  • Villager Narzisse (#295) 31 Aug 2018, 1:27 am

    I am impressed how fast the site was back up (did we break it? XXDD) and congrats everyone, I loved all the motivational threads that came up the closer we got :D I don't see a statement about making the real event less time consuming, hope it will considered as well, we are all exhausted, even though it was a great experience, thanks for that heart.gif
