OK i went to have a game at the Lockwood showcase think it looks awesome :) got a sand castle reward pretty easy. the game isnt to hard at all just a little time consuming

 

for those that want to know the rewards are or as close as i can figure out

 

  • Sand Castle - Get 1000 eggs or 10,000 (not sure)
  • Pin Wheel - Get 500 blue eggs
  • Statue 1 - Get 5000 green eggs
  • Some sort of swarm?? - Get 10,000 Purple eggs
  • Statue 2 - get a community score of (Beace yourselves) 999,999,999,999 (that isnt a typo)
  • Flaming sword - find one what looks to be rare or special egg.

If you have the rouge costumes 1 egg = 2 but thats about the only perk i have noticed

Now i knew Lockwood wouldnt make it easy i mean they want repeat traffic i understand that but wow some of these scores border on the sadistic :O

 

What are your thoughts on the space and the game?

Best method to fall asleep in front of your TV is playing this egg hunting game. 

 

BTW. Lockwood should use some maths before setting the community reward to 999,999,999,999 smashed dragon eggs. 

 

At the moment the counter for smashed eggs is around 6,000,000. Lets assume they reach 9 million every day (which I doubt judged by the boredom of the game), we need approx. 111,111 days to reach them. 

 

Devided by 365 days a year (not counting the maintenance downtimes!!) this would mean around 305 years. I honestly doubt that our grand-grand-grand kids are interested in finally finding out, what the dragon egg smash community reward will be!!

We all better buy the rogue costumes, then we only need about 150 years of egg smashing to fullfill Lockwood's task

What are your thoughts on the space and the game?

 

 

 


I don't like it, and the rewards surely don't justify the work involved, for 2 lousy statues (both look like the 2 dragon creature pets) a pin wheel and some kind of swarm?? Can purchase a flaming sword at Alter Ego, so that's sorted. Would've been better to have the old system of one item per day, if they're not offering the egg and armour display cases, and the stocks, then I'm not interested in this masochistic game. The Baron's Eggcellent Plan was hellish enough.


 

I agree with you Reaver I was hoping we would at least get the Flaming Pylons or pillars i guess you could call them, The armour case (really liked the look of it) and the stocks. They are items. I dont know why they dont have them either in the gift machine, as rewards or paid for items :( Makes no sense to me.

 

And the sheer amount needed for the rewards has put many people off even playing the game a second time. I had a run about the space earlier and there were a few people asking what they were thinking when they made the scores so high. This was from people that didnt buy the suit and some that have. The look of the space is nice, I like the medievil vibe to it kinda reminds me of dragon age. The minitour is a little in the way when the eggs spawn between its feet tho. I like the space, but like others i have other things to do then run around 24/7 collecting eggs, and a few of the items in the space i would really love to own as i could do a nice themed space around them.

 

So if your listening Lockwood can we have those items please? (Doubt it but hey worth a shot)

 

Thank you all for your replies to :)

Are the items in question not already furniture items though? I guess they were just delayed from launching in this weeks update but I'm 100% certain that they will be purchasable items.

 

 

As for obtaining the items, I think realistically it would take around 30+ hours to obtain everything if you have the patience for it.

"As for obtaining the items, I think realistically it would take around 30+ hours to obtain everything if you have the patience for it."

 

REALISTIC??

 

Since the reopening of Home after todays update all Homies together managed to stomp on 8.2 million eggs in more than12 hours. 

 

To get the community reward within 30+ hours, we have to smash about 9 million eggs every second!

 

BTW. you have to collect 50 pink and 25 green eggs per minute to gain the other rewards within 30+ hours. You're good if you kick 75 eggs per minute alone independent of their color.

 

Sorry to smash your illusion, but you can't cheat math.

Based on what I collected:

 

8000+ eggs per hour

300+ of each colour in that timeframe

300+ multiplied by 10 hours = 3000+ of each colour

Multiplied by 3 to 30 hours = 9000+ purple

 

Therefore in that timeframe you will have realistically obtained blue, green and almost all purple eggs.  Then the mystery egg, if that doesn't pop up in 30 hours of attempting it, then I dunno what the requirement for that would be.

 

As for the community reward there's little you can do about that due to it being counted on red eggs smashed rather than overall totals. You don't have to spend time trying to obtain it and can simply check in on it's progress if you so choose to do so.

 

So realistically, 30-35 hours seems about right to me.

My hat goes off to whomever can run around this enclosed little area stomping like a lunatic for 30-35 hours for a mediocre prize at best.  I know platinum trophies that can be won in less time with far greater enjoyment value.

I don't think it will take anything like that amount of time. I collected 500 blue eggs in less than 10 minutes today without the help of the special outfit so I'm sure you can do 5000 green ones in an hour / hour and a half easy on the correct day.

Hopefully that wasn't glitch today and the next batch of eggs will be up tomorrow for collection. My figures were based on collection yesterday so if it works out, it's a lot easier than originally thought. Not that it makes it any less boring to do though.

I'd like to know who in FarmWood came up with the concept that kicking eggs in a space that has about 4fps can be anywhere close to entertaining, I mean what was the point o. 0 Mini games.. they're suppose to be fun, not something you'd likely do on an MMO, only on an MMO it's normally worth farming <,<

 

If they want us to waste 30+ hours of are life's doing this they could have at least put some time and some effort in the rewards... Nothing really seems worth all the truble.

Managed to get the pin wheel, but on my second timed session I got frozen out about half way into the time and my ps3 locked up( went through the usual disc check), so I didn't go back in as that was my second freeze of the morning.

What I am wondering is, will what you collect in a timed session get added if you leave the game before the time is up?

It doesn't get save but when you go and start the game again the timer carries on from where you left off.

From what I can tell it appears that the common egg colour changes daily, as it was green before and now it's blue. If this is the case, as long as you get the day you need collecting the other egg colours shouldn't be too difficult, I'd think the community one should go pretty fast. It's a shame the rewards aren't that great looking.

Blue eggs for me too, so thankfully the requirements aren't quite so eggstreme.

Many thanks :) seems different days spawn different eggs O_O good to know. And sorry about the 'swarm thing' I was going off the silhouette so it kind of looked like the infamous bats to me. I shall update the days and the egg colours

 

Day 1 - Yellow eggs

Day 2 - Blue eggs

 

If it follows the pattern of the rewards list then Day 3 might be Green eggs Day 4 might be Purple eggs Day 5 might be Red eggs so the last rare one might be a 'Get all previous rewards' A random spawn or a certain day to get it. Anyone have any ideas about that Dark purple egg?

 

I will keep this thread updated with the info for you all (tho with the time diffrence you all may know before me lol)
