Updated: PERKS Spacious Barn Spacious Railcars Conveyor Belt (move production boxes around in factories) Two Minutes (free refresh/speed up without tcash in the last 2 minutes of crops or animals or factories) Farm Bonus (animals and mushroom farm produces faster) Gold Ticket Rewards Ship, Port, Castle skins Stickers: Pirate Cow, Pirate Duck, Pirate Pig New purple booster: “Extra Pair of Hands” booster, it looks like it will double factories products in the factories but we will confirm later
Buccaneer Fun Event Tasks Samples - Bubble Gum Festival Event tasks (left side): • There will always be 1 task related to the current event • You can do up to 4 or 5 event tasks everyday. There are 7 types of event tasks for the Bubble Gum Festival. The points for the tasks range from 10 to 50. • The same task can ask for different amounts and the higher the amount required the higher the points you will get • You can pay to continue if you fail and it will count towards the task as long as you complete the level.
🥳 All ongoing tasks are now available! Save this picture for your reference In general, the tasks don’t look too bad, but Playrix has officially lost their mind. There are 3! BARN UPGRADE tasks. DO NOT upgrade your barn until the very last week. New tasks worth mentioning are: -collect hammer and collect nails. Quantity looks reasonable, so let’s hope we can finish it quickly -send ships with ingots on the very last day is not doable if you don’t have fully upgraded for time ships, so don’t even attempt it. Even for players with fully upgraded ships it will take 14 hours of non-stop sending ships to Frutus to finish it -there is a new task to use sugar. We will prepare a guide for it later Good luck! Thanks T&B!

To be honest, I hate this event. In my opinion, Playwreck tests all players to see where their limits are. Unfortunately, there are still too many who accept this whole rip-off. If you look at the rewards, they really aren't that great. It doesn't matter if the island looks like a pirate castle or not, and the ships are always on their way to the islands somehow, so you don't see them anyway Of course, Playwreck expects everyone to really want this design, so you can only get them with the GP (impudence).
One of my coop members has already refused to buy the GP. I should not have bought it either....
[color=#006600]If we do not pay and pay handsomely - - the devs either sell the game to another company or they fold this "older" game that ceases to return (mega) profits. Businessmen are ruthless!
They are ruthless, but they are also businessmen, and this game produces much better returns that some of Playrix other ones (third after Homescapes and Gardenscapes). It is too valuable an asset to worry about it folding any time soon.
I think there is a lot of space between squeezing every last penny out of us and giving up and closing the game because it’s not making enough money.
From conversations in a different game forum regularly visited by those devs, they keep count of everything, not just total money spent. They know which specific features are generating money spending and in game currency use. They also watch stuff like new downloads and number of players who become inactive. They know when current players are playing less and since playing less correlates to spending less, they do have an interest in keeping the game playable. Sucking all the fun out of a feature until people stop playing it is not good for the overall health and survival of a game, either.
All that remains to be seen is which task drops first once one of those 10 gets completed? Would it be the next one on the chart even if no tasks clear until Wednesday or Thursday? By then there would be a backlog of 4 or 6 tasks waiting to drop. Could it be any of them?
Saw in your post to not upgrade barn till last week. Could you explain why? Thanks
@Finch's Landin Your own level really determines the best time to update and the sheer number of upgrades that are required. In my own case, I need to do 4 barn upgrades. 2 simultaneously were in the first week and are probably a loss as I did not buy the Golden Ticket this time (and absolutely ignored Great Freight that had a "free" barn upgrade coupon if I only did 3000 copters or more). I currently have 110 paints, 108 hammers and 103 nails and need 86 all. Ok, one upgrade certainly possible right now. I look at the schedule and I see I need one additional barn upgrade on the 10th and another on the 19th. If I just wait until the 19th, I can satisfy both of the last two tasks. If I get enough barn materiel, I can then upgrade again and get 20 whole points for that first 2 barn upgrades task too. Trouble is...24 May starts the Hawaiian thingy with Sandra the Surfer and she is likely to want a few barn upgrades too. What to do? Ignore Sandra as she does not exist and play one of these at a time since the future is fluid with these devs? Should I buy the next golden ticket/pass/whatchamacallit in order to simply get another barn upgrade or??? Nah...we will wait and see what happens. I will ignore that first task as I do not need to fuss with doing insane amounts of copters nor funnel money into the devs pockets if I just ignore 20 points.
I stopped receiving nails at 6/12 on Windows and got not a single one on Android 0/14. That's ridiculous and more than obvious...and it's annoying! Why am I doing this to myself? Because I've already bought the GP and I HAVE to do something. Oh man, this really costs nerves without end.
3/14... I did not buy the pass so don't have the railcar perk, but most trains are nailess...
I am stuck... again... on the 5 in a row NLOL event task... so thinking it will be impossible to finish Buccaneers to get final 2 free prizes; tcash and land expansion... so... I am going to hold off barn upgrades and save them for the next PVE event coming up soon after Buccaneer ends. it takes weeks to acquire enough hammers for 1 upgrade, let alone 2.... so going to save my stock/fire power on barn upgrades until they will make a difference in the end results...

We are trying to get confirmation, but we think we can make-up points from one minigame to the next. Please read the thread on Need for Seeds of 5/17 as reddit confirms a bit of the theory... Not fully accurate yet, but... (Personally, I cannot do all 4 upgrades without buying GT or doing insane amounts of copters either so I will sacrifice a pawn somewhere. )
The most recent task chart I’ve seen gives us a three barn upgrade tasks. I guess the quantities are higher at lower levels, as usual, but I’m expecting mine will match the chart, which shows - April 29 - 2 upgrades - May 10 - 1 upgrade - May 19 - 1 upgrade
To me, this means I would need 2 upgrades total if I wait until May 19 to upgrade. I have tools for one and assume I would need the Golden ticket upgrade coupon to do a second one.
I plan to reserve 3 of my 10 task slots for the barn upgrade tasks until May 19. By that time, the color splash game will be gone and we’ll have a clearer idea of how much Need for Seeds tasks will let us make up the mini-game task points lost during Color Splash and whether there is any chance of reaching the final reward.
That’s about when I will have to decide whether or not to buy the Golden ticket for the second upgrade coupon. If I don’t buy it, then I probably won’t use the tools either. All together, these tasks only add up to 40 points (20+10+10), so it’s not really a huge amount to lose.
