    Default the new guild event system is not skill based whatsoever.

    This new guild event system is even less skill based than the old one, it's pretty much gambling.

    Uber-rich people who have never jumped over a spike in their entire growtopia career get ultra rare prizes from the #5 reward, and what do i get for getting to the #9 reward in like 8 minutes? a trollface growmoji, toxic furry thing, amulet of lameness, and dishonorable scum's magic stick of shame. At least with the old guild event system we knew what we were getting, and our prizes were guaranteed.

    What could be done to fix this problem? elongate the parkour to a 2nd world, make it harder; and make it so we can pick what prize we get. Will it ruin the economy? potentially. Will it make it skill based rather than a legal casino? yes.

    Solution 2 is just to revert back to the old system with small tweaks, and scrap the parkour and tickets since they require pretty much no skill anyway

    No one:
    Ubisoft: The old guild system sucked, let's improve it as we see fit.
    Rich players: wait thats illegal
    Poor people: I have a chance, but at what cost
    People who parkour: *making wls intensifies*
    Give a man a wl, and he will learn to rely on you.
    Teach a man to make wls and you'll set him up for success.

    I hated the parkour but didnt complain still gonna do it but so much rng I had to farm for hours for gems for pristines then hours to fish to get trash tier rewards might quit guild stuff if this continues better to just farm.

    i won 8 blarney challenges in total during 2016-2017 blarney. I also won multiple carny challenges by doing death race 3000. Bugisoft's refusal to fix the plow glitch left me with parkouring as the only way to earn wls. So i'm competent. You don't make wls by parkouring in the summer clash; the numbers are false, rigged. You'd think i'd get at least 2 rare prizes from the summer clash? nope, just one. And of course, zero epic prizes. from around 10 tickets, and of course, for getting to the BEST prize pool i get a trollface emoji i sold for 11 wls because it's worthless.

    This should be closed but what i need to say is that theres less rng and more grind.
    Skill based events for them is wls (i think)

    there's more rng and more grind. You seriously think that everyone getting the same prize for getting to the same step is less rng based than someone getting DMC or something super rare from 5-6th prize pool and me getting a trollface emoji, amulet of force or squirrel king from the 9th? Might as well play casino, 50/50 chances of winning instead of 0

    Sorry to hear you were pretty unlucky, as someone who doesn't parkour, I did it and only got an 88wl item and thought that was trash.. Also good job being good at parkour, I don't got that kinda skill :v

    its just practice, my point is; no matter how good you are at parkour, some noob will get better prizes than you for being worse at parkour (dunno what ubisoft was thinking when they made the parkour like that)

    Aye you calling me nub?! Jkjk I liked the guild system last year other than the fact that it was super grindy and only the rich could really participate. The parkour feels unnecessary and for the most part, unwanted.

    i agree, they should've focused on fixing the original event rather than revamp it completely and falsely advetise it as "skill based". They could've just made it so we can buy a ticket for summer tokens, say 50, and if we get to the best prize thing we get 100 summer tokens, essentially making 50 token profit for playing the parkour

    I honestly hate how they balanced it, they introduced non branch items into the mix and balanced the prizes on current economic state,which is sure to change, they're just catering to the people who were complaining that the items shouldn't be coming back this year so that they don't lose world locks, I hate rng in general, but this is just terrible.
    May or may not have trolled you in a horrible way

    I love spikey hair!
