Today I was in for a surprise when I began exploring after rollover. I was collecting Carved Eggs (CE from now on) when I noticed they now sometimes break. So even if you find a CE encounter, there is a chance you wont get anything from it.
---------------------------

We dont quite understand why this was implemented, to be honest, since it will only cause people to hoard their CEs, since the handout got worse, so there will be even less donations. Especially since the Egg Yolk's price was raised, people will be even more keen to hoarding now.

More CEs would encourage more donations, for sure. So it would be nice if this 'feature' would be removed, so we can continue earning our CEs properly and keep donating.

(The reason why people arent donating is because most of them want to buy Egg Yolks instead. And even with the limit of 10 Egg Yolk uses per day, with the raised prices it would still cost 200CE a day. Egg Yolks are simply just so darn expensive. What we need is either a lowering of Egg Yolk prices or an even greater increase of CEs.

If people know they will have plenty leftovers, they would be more willing to donate.)


Thanks for reading.

I support...maybe not entirely removing, but reducing the chance...I know several people who can't get any CEs thanks to the breaking, and it's really sad to me that now nobody will donate because they can't get their egg yolks afterwards. I really don't care about egg yolks myself, I just want to open the donation tiers, and the few of us who are still donating can't open the tiers because there aren't enough people donating.

Mine break so often! I've been exploring all day and have at least half my eggs break!

Maybe they should lower the breaking change?

There is a suggestion up for that too. But yes, I agree. If they dont want to remove it, then at least lower it to 15-20%. The current one is nowhere just 30%, even if the code says so and they intended it like that. This is too high.

I mean, how clumsy can one lion be? To drop one egg out of every three eggs...

Especially when he knows he needs them. He would be extra careful.

My point exactly. If you want people to donate, they got to get lots of extra eggs to be motivated, so they know they can buy what they want and can spare some to donate.
So I dont understand what they mean by us getting 'too much CE'. That is the point! To get more extra!

True.
Before they broke I donated ALL my eggs because I thought I would still get enough to buy something but now I question if I can buy even a handful of things I wanted even though I am online pretty much 24/7.
I really don't understand why they made this, it makes no sense at all.

Because according to them, we got too many CEs and that 30% breaking rate is just a small chance. Not quite small if every 3 egg breaks. Sometimes half of it. That is not a small rate.

When actually thinking about effects of stuff like that in a psychological way it is really obvious what happened, so it doesn't make any sense to do something like that. In my personal opinion.
And 30% is not small it is fairly high, number wise. I mean one third? That is everywhere high.
And I have the feeling that it is more like 60% break rate. At least for me and I am exploring actually all day everyday XD
And tbh I will most likely not donate when this continues this way and will just save up the CEs for next year and hope it will go better.
I have done that last year in May per accident and I like the idea of having a bit more when starting. And I say this now even though I planned to donate at least 50% but more than those 50% are taken away by this breaking (at least for me personally) so donating is nothing I would actually like to do when this situation is handled this way ^^"

No support. You can explore with the mask off if you don't want to drop eggs. The drop rate makes sense to me because it somewhat evens out the amount of eggs you get with the mask on and off. Mask On allows you to pick the option where you know you're going to get an egg, which really isn't fair compared to mask off where you have a random chance of getting an egg.

Honestly, I think people are a little too concerned about donation this early on. I personally am waiting until I can buy the decor I want before I donate; I'm sure many other players are as well. Compared to other currency we get a reasonable amount of eggs.

People explore with the mask on OBVIOUSLY because it yields more eggs.
The chase encounters are so darn scarce and the outcome is so unfavorable, that obviously people will go for the mask.
Maybe they should increase the bunny chase encounters 4 or 5 times as much as it used to be. THEN, maybe people will pick to chase and not wear the mask.

Nothing is evened out here. This is nonsense.

Maybe instead of matching the mask encounters to the chase encounters, they should raise the chase encounters frequency instead, to make the outcomes just as favorable as the mask ones.

I am currently not concerned about donation. I aint donating anything because CE drops are still scarce for me, since I want to buy 10 egg yolks a day to match the new limit. Here, I dont even have enough for 10 egg yolks, so for a single day of my limit because of eggs breaking a lot. So obviously I am not donating anything.

Especially when a 100 energy explore at the beginning of the month yielded 8-10 CEs, now it barely gives me 3-4. This is bullsh*t. A big pile of it too. This is NOT reasonable.

I do agree that the breaking rate should be lowered slightly--for every two eggs I got, one of them would break when I was exploring recently--but it shouldn't be taken out entirely. Eggs are fragile. If they break, they break.
