Must congratulate you for the massive gifts you are showering on the players - NOT!  The prizes for the Halloween tournament are a joke!!

Nobody cares about the silly candy rewards.  The candy that is dropped hourly is almost impossible to collect, so most of the time ignored.  It has become an annoyance.  Offer something that will be useful to the players, or is your intent to get rid of active players and close the game down?  If you are going to give candy with the claims, add a few useful items 

Support your players, you are killing the game

Jeez, it's free stuff.  If you don't want it don't take it.  It's not like you even had to score any tournament points to get it...

Free with a afterglow of spend spend spend! The two first chests is reasonable easy to get with just averge playing. If you want the top tier one, you have to jump on the sapphire train. There is a missing marker on the candy when clicking it, but not impossible to get. Then a jump from 5k to 15k and then from 15k to 50k... , imho the gap is to big unless you want to sink some serious sapphires into achieve it, and then the end reward might be a giant "go get bent, and thank you for the fish".

Hello.

It's only your choice whether to take part in this Tournament or not.

If you think that all places where you can collect Treats without spending Sapphires are not enough for you, or if you don't like the Reward, you can don't take part in the Tournament.

Still, I think that there are enough places where you can get the Treats without spending Sapphires. For example, win Battles, complete Divine Quests, attack and defend BGs, gather collectibles in your Castle.

 Some activities only get you so much, and others a lot more, but the later will also mean you use up your units in the process and if you want to pursue the end prize, you end up coin to revive units to get more candy. (welcome to the new edition of candy crush!).  I know its optional, but with no idea or hint about what the top tier reward is, you could end up burn a lot of sapphires that turn out its not worth it.


Its funny though, when critique the most common response is, "its your choice if you want to take part or not"... true.. it is. But critique is for a reason too.

That's the top reward, so definitely not something to aim for. And yeah, it's "free stuff", but it's still stuff that takes time and effort for the Development team to implement, test, roll-out etc. Personally, I'd rather see that time spent fixing existing bugs or implementing some of the suggestions that have been laying around for months.

Hello.

Absolutely different teams are working on the Tournament Rewards and fixing bugs/implementing new features. So, these processes don't interfere with each other.

You know what the final prize is as it's displayed when you mouse over a Chest in the Reward tab:



Your feedback is always appreciated and it's considered. In this exact case it's true that if you don't think the reward cost your Efforts, you can don't take part in it.

Dear Lords

at my onw opinion...the tournament is esasy and not to destroy units so i see it as a way to get free units. a bit difficult to reach the last stage???, yes but not the others so i feel happy.

nice easy tournament for free stuff doing what we all do the rest of days without this tournament

well it was easy enough but as previously stated as long as you didn't "aim" for a top reward it was just a bonus to regular play


I did some reasonable pvp play and did not get top rewards so yes - it would have taken spending money on the game to achieve it unless you played hard every day to make points
