I’ve seen signs during the last several Double Garden Reward events that KI is slowing down the timers and this time feels more like it than ever.
I planted Couch Potatoes and Evil Magma Peas on Wednesday, early in the evening. Normally both of those — with all likes — would have been at elder harvest Saturday. Not only did they not make it but for most of them the progress bar didn’t move from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. I even made time to check in this morning before the event got taken down and none of the Couch Potatoes made it to elder harvest.
A bunch of the CPs are close but didn’t make it and another batch is only about 3/4 complete. Some of the EMPs finally made it by late Sunday night and the rest by this morning but that’s 1 to 1-1/2 days longer than usual. And the CPs are at 2 days longer than usual and counting.
I’ve seen some comments on a Facebook group I’m in about the timers seeming to have slowed down at the last event and have run into people in the game who seem to be experiencing this slow-down too. What’s your experience? Do you think KI is slowing down the growth of plants during these events?
I’m finding the safest way to be assured of double elder harvests on crops you want is to get them there when there’s not a double rewards event happening and just leave them sitting at elder until one starts. That way you’re assured of one double elder harvest. After that it’s getting to be a crap shoot whether you can get any sort of plant–no matter how short the growing cycle–from seed to elder harvest while one of these events is happening.
