    changes in the valley . . .feedback thread

    Greetings Miramagicians

    The latest update introduced some changes to the frequency of the valley questies - which look quite exciting!

    It will take some time to adjust and see the changes take effect; for quite a time now there have been rumblings and wishes expressed to change things in the valley . . and the update provides a detailed response to it.

    Here is an excerpt from an email I received regarding these changes:

    'we expect more diversity on the valley map with quests changing more frequently in the
    future.


    While Eusebius and the crystal treasure will in fact disappear after just
    one trade involving rubies, both will now show up much more frequently.
    These changes should balance out so that the chances to solve one of these
    coveted quests should stay roughly the same for most players and even
    increase in some cases.'

    So - welcome to the feedback thread . . and don't forget Harald the herald in your village!

    Honestly speaking, I don't like it. I see plenty of Eusebius trading rubies for special mushrooms, which no one is claiming now nor did in the past in our valley. 50 rubies from crystal used to be for 5 players now just 1 can claim, which makes me now wonder how often that questi appears since the update I was the "lucky" just one to get the 50 rubies, before other 4 players could collect but not anymore.

    I have noticed just one benefit for more players collecting questies. 300 or 275 care points for tree (if I am correct) used to be just for 15 players now it is for 20 "Yay".

    Since the update I had no chance to see for how many players and for how long Eusebius is trading 400 k mana. He used to ask for 5 special mushrooms before now I am just waiting to see if that stays same or devs changed to just 1 player.

    I have only seen Eusebius trading for 12 mushrooms for the rubies. not any lower amounts, like I used to see. I like trading the lower amounts a lot! I have seen Eusebius trade for mana only once since the update.

    I do LOVE the more frequent tree care points!!! it is terrific!

    I have not seen the crystal selling anything but dyes, and a while ago selling the special plants. She sells rubies? seriously? LOL j/k I did get the 50 rubies one time since I stqrted playing. : )

    Wish the good things would just come more frequently, period. I mean without letting only one person in the valley get it.

    I did want to add on one more thing I have noticed, I don't know if this is the place, but it does coincide with the timing of the valley update: Now it takes forever for anything to open ie: portal worlds, competition man, lab, anything you need to click on to do something or get somewhere it takes so so long now for that to happen, where before this change or update it was nearly instantaneous for me.

    Hello everyone!

    Part of the fun with finding good traders in the valley map is the chance to share the good news with friends on the Valley Chat. In the Valley of Magic we do this all the time. Having just one chance for some of the most prized traders (50 mana for 50 rubies, unique mushrooms for rubies, etc) reduces this great opportunity to work together as a friendly valley, regardless of whether these traders appear more often.

    My view is that the game developers should encourage any aspect of play which promotes friendly chat and shared benefits. Unfortunately, the latest changes have the opposite effect by rewarding only one player at a time who just happens to be lucky to wander the valley map at the right moment.

    Honestly speaking how do we know if the crystal with 50 rubies shows more often? I don't. If it was rarely before I still had chance to see it as a 3rd or 5th player to collect. Now just one player, a big pffff.

    Finally I saw Eusebius few days ago trading 400 k mana for 5 special mushrooms and lucky, still for 5 players. I am glad that that did not changed.

    I agree with the others that the changes have not been a good thing. The anticipation of entering the valley in search of the elusive trader and sharing the news with others..gone. The opportunity to work together..gone. Please...turn back the changes.

    The offerings of 1 of something are simply rude. It makes for conflict in me. I like to trade in the valley. However, I know some of my friends in the valley are not buying rubies. They really need to be able to trade and get some on occasion. Therefore, I feel guilty for contemplating a ruby trade.

    Before, I would see the ruby trader every couple of days, but there would be 5 or more offers. Now I see him every few days with 1 offer.

    Also the ticket agent. Really, how was that an improvement?

    I have not seen any creature with one offer since this thread began. Therefore I am assuming I am missing out even more than before this change took place.
