While Fixing some random things again.... will you unnerf Paradise Island again or will you leave it like this and kill it like you killed Shady Warren?
This update was just the monthly Windows Maintenance we do (It's tied in with the annoying update notices some of you get for your home computers that prompts you to restart). No bug fixes were implemented.
Now back to top: Will you really leave paradise Island in its current nerfed state? I just want to know cos it would save me a lot of over night fishing for flowerhorns and it would save me at least an hour wasted a day for paradise.
As for this issue, I will talk with the team and ask what their plans are for Paradise Island and what is going to be done about any existing problems. I will attempt to make it a monthly effort to compile knows issues and give the community some kind of update on the progress.

I'd like to give my personal feedback about this Halloween Event.
No offense, but this event is far from being funny. Last year we had one which forced us to stay stuck in dungeon for getting as many candies as possible, but outside we had something to kill and get few interesting rewards at least.
This year we have only 50x quests which could be done very easily and this means that we have nothing more to achiev or do for the rest of the event time once we complete those quests.
I know that events are hard to plan for giving to everyone the same fun 'cause players have different tastes and playstyle, but I think that this could think/give something more to do.
I'm not complaining about rewards and such, it's just my point of view about the time needed to "complete" the event and the event duration.
Step 1 - take quest in victory Plaza
Step 2 - go to easier familiar to tame
Step 3 - tame 3x and seal them
Step 4 - go back to Victory Plaza and take reward
Rinse and repeat. Event done!
Since all these steps could be done in one day, for the rest of the event we'd have nothing of nothing to achiev or to pursuit. Zero.
No offense taken! Any constructive feedback is good feedback, in my book.
I've been reading up on other posts concerning the event and the general sentiment is that this event isn't as fun or challenging as it could be...and that's a fair point. It's like you and 20 other people were invited to a pizza party but there's only one pizza....and it's way too small...and it doesn't have any toppings you like. And you wonder why you were even invited. I get it. While I think it's too late to make changes to this current event, I will do my best to try and ask for more activities in future events!
I appreciate the will behind those compensations but with all the major trouble September caused to your players, I must honestly say that THIS compensation is a slap in the face.
It is worth nothing in compare to what some players lost ... I know, I know "players greed" but compensation should always scale with the trouble it is given for.
I don't think even WeMade can say it's "greedy" for players to want the September writs they earned fair and square, and didn't claim because they had zero warning that WeMade were going to reset the rewards. It's not difficult to calculate either - you lost x writs, you get x writs. I don't know what would be fair compensation for the players who got locked out of game, but I agree it ought to be more than is being offered...
We're working on a method to distribute Writs. At present, Writ disbursement was tied in with the Calendar, and as we all know, that was a mess last week...Now that the Calendar is good to go, we can work on delivering what was earned. ^^
We will be performing an unscheduled maintenance on Friday, September 29, 2017 to help address the current issues with events. Not all issues will be resolved, as we are still investigating and working on fixes for various issues. We anticipate the maintenance to last approximately 1 hour. Please note that the estimated length of time for this maintenance is undetermined and is subject to change without notification.
Thanks for your patience!
