(is dying of laughter at the AP, as it brings back memories of walls of Frills and people complaining endlessly about them while those of us who liked them groaned about being egg-locked with our 4 CB and our 1 bred egg) . Man, walls sure do take me back. :)

For those who want other stuff, have patience - I was able to catch a yulebuck and two solstices for my daughter. :P

In other news, I think we're at least AHEAD of where we were around midnight cave time last night with the mana bar? It's at 85%.

(Last night at 1AM cave time it was still at 63, wasn't it? I seem to remember posting about it.)

Yeah, was thinking the same thing, its still very blue though :(

Yeah. It's much further. I am so sick of doing these tetris puzzles, but am trying to remember every 15 minutes because I'm sure there's people that want to read it.

Ugh. Frustrating. I always wait 16 mins just to be sure. And if I forget to check the time, I just go with the time I think "oh, what time did I finish that?" lol :P

Haha, the wall of Garlands is fun and I'm glad it means that plenty of people don't have to miss out on them! ...I'm just a little sad there's still a bit of waiting before the lowtime reg egg rush... was so excited for the lowtimes and didin't even consider this would happen

Well with the wall of Garland eggs, this only means that the Christmas wall is finally coming to a close. Not that it matters as much for me, as a cave hunter, not an AP hunter.

You are really missing out, lots of people drop CBs on the AP for whatever reason and it saves time on your scroll, I love the AP truly!

I feel like the AP is mocking me, LOL. Nothing but Garlands, just sitting there. I'd take a third one if I could, but I can't! None of us can! Argggggh! :-)

Why wouldn't the holidays return next year? Sure we now have our CBs but why wouldn't new users get the same chance? 

Why shouldn't they, because they're new? I know games in general love being mean to the new guy but that's super unfair to anyone who joins after the holiday or even just missed the event.

 

Getting rid of the holiday biomes after a year would be a terrible idea, it would be repeating one of the main issues that caused people to ask for them to come back in the first place all over again.

Hmm. These puzzles are annoying me. I've gotten good enough with the medium ones that it's "too" easy and sort of boring, but apparently I haven't quite mastered the hard ones. *pokes them*

D'you think more folks are playing the game while they wait for the AP to clear, instead of camping out there in case they might miss what they need?  I know I did, & still didn't completely meet my holiday goals.  But I tossed the exp. from the hard (still easy for me) mode onto the side of fire when I remembered to do so, & when I felt comfortable leaving the AP for a couple minutes.

 

Asking cuz I just saw the bar go from 87% to 88%.

 

Whoop! 89%~

Nah, it was just at the same time as the eggs, so if there are holiday hatchies with less then 4 days we will still see a few here and there, probably people dtiching stuff they do not want but were hoping to trade

Oh well XD Just a bit more waiting. I know other people aren't happy about it, but I'd much rather have to wait for a few hours than some other people miss out.

I just press 'get new puzzle' until I get an easier one :P But I think I've got the hang of it now

This really isn't something that needs to be "fixed", or at least it hasn't been in past years. This new-egg AP wall is not new, it's happened in past years as well. Often there is an actual thread on the forums with people gathering to catch-and-release so that people who have holiday obligations are still able to get them from the AP. The wall *will* go away, just wait a little while. Many people go out of town for the holidays and often don't have internet access at all, so "popping in" isn't an option. Others have obligations towards family, and not everyone's family is as understanding about needing to play a pixel game as some of ours. The AP wall is the only chance some people have for these eggs. I agree it may be a little excessive, but it will go away eventually. It's not the worst thing.

 

edit: Also, the eggs in the AP are already on Dec 26th, after only a handful of hours, so it shouldn't be all that much longer before the 27th ones cycle through as well, and then they'll be gone.

When that happens, I just wait another minute and refresh the screen, the completed puzzle will be entered if the fifteen minutes has passed. No need to complete a different puzzle.

Good to know, thanks!   I just kind of play it by ear, no timer going for this
