Totally agree...but PLEASE make the PRIZES reflect the time and effort spent...3 minute boost??? Come On! You can do better than that for your hard working and playing members...I prefer the short ones. They're more manageable. Long ones tie your city up for too long and get in the way of normal development. Mind you I liked the evolving Phoenix buildings but three long ones in the first 6 months of the year is too many. I'm rather hoping that once the spire gets fully developed that will reduce the need for so many events to keep the players who aren't in fellowships or have reached the end of the last current chapter busy. I long event, one short one like this a couple of FAs and a couple of challenges a quarter might leave about three clear weeks placed split either side of the long event and several partial weeks which as I said will give people a chance to work on their city with out temporary buildings getting in the way.
