Hey guys,

So we’ve had a chance to sit down and digest the feedback you’ve left for the Spring Fayre over the past 24 hours, and have decided to implemented a few changes that will be made later today:

- The fayre tickets you get from completing rides and attractions has been increased by 6 times the original amount - this makes it possible to earn all prizes through daily tokens alone, with a few days buffer should you miss a day logging in.

- We’re going to increase the amount of Happy Hours we do each day, and we’re looking to add times that are more suitable for America/Australian players.

It’s worth noting that for the attractions that are free during Happy Hour, you will only receive 1 prize ticket per ride completion. This is due to you being able to ride as many times as you like during the said hour! (The non-free attractions are Clawdia machine, Chinchompa map, Scavenger hunt and Kristlins fortunes.)

- We’ll also be increasing the amount of worlds that Happy Hour is available on – 6, instead of 4. We’ll play this by ear and make sure we have enough worlds available to help with the players trying to play.

---

Initially, when starting the Spring Fayre, we didn’t want to do a cut/paste copy of the Beach – the idea of authentic Fairground attractions, with entry to play without being too demanding on play time were all parts of what we wanted to do to make the Spring Fayre unique.

Clearly, this hasn’t been well received by you guys, and if we’re being honest, the balancing isn’t entirely at a place where we would have liked it. This isn’t any particular persons fault – it was an oversight before launch, and one we intend to fix. With our recent updates and events (Birth by Fire, Beach 2.0, Elite Skilling Outfits in game etc.) we’ve wanted to move into a situation that allows people to use their time and still get the same reward from what was being offered. We share your feelings on the Spring Fayre in this respect – it missed that mark. Additionally, we intended to fall back on Happy Hours to ensure players felt like they could be getting the most out of the Fayre. As these have to be manually activated by Jmods, we had to consider that when planning the schedule, which has left it in times that aren’t ideal for everyone, including some fully packed worlds that blocked people from accessing them.

A new schedule will be updated later today, and the changes will be implemented shortly this afternoon. There will be an update on the official RS Twitter, as well as updates to this post, and we’ll be around to answer any questions we can.

Cheers,

Mod Sayln / The Live Events Team

Does this mean the tickets we already got will be 6 times as much? or will we have to start from scratch with what we have currently (e.g I have 97, will I get 97 x 6?, or just keep 97, till tomorrow then get the 6x amount)
I know nobody will see this signature but sometimes when I am bored - I like to go into my garden, cover myself in dirt and pretend im a carrot.

Thank you very much.

Aside from the disappointment about not being able to earn all the rewards, I was disappointed about how quickly I was finished with my tokens. One of the things I enjoyed about the beach was hanging around doing activities and talking to people, and working in a group to defeat Clawdia. Hopefully now with increased happy hours we'll be able to do some of that. :)
