The End of Whitbee's Candy Bash
The Return of Whitbee’s Candy Bash will last through November 8th, but the Prize Pumpkin will remain open for a brief time. This will give you the opportunity to turn in any leftover candy for prizes.
What happens to my leftover Candy at the end of the Whitbee’s Candy Bash?
Good question. In the past, because the prizes were achieved in a straight line, it was easy to know how much a player had earned towards the next reward and make that choice for you. This time, since players have the choice to get whatever they want, whenever they want, we had to make some interesting decisions about the end of the event. Should we just pick some prizes and spend your Candy for you? Should we just tell you the event is over, tough cookies, and your Candy vanishes? Those felt like bad answers, so we decided to leave the Prize Pumpkin open an extra week, even though the event is over.
So the short answer is, nothing happens to your leftover Candy for ONE WEEK. You can still hop in the game, access the Prize Pumpkin and spend your Candy however you'd like. At the END of that extra week, we'll turn your Candy into treats and place them in your gifts.
Why can I still buy Candy but not earn them?
Based on our decision to leave the Prize Pumpkin open an extra week we had a discussion that was essentially, "What if I'm really close to getting the Lycan Dragon? What do I do?" - which is a good question. What can we do for players who were close to achieving their goal, but were maybe on vacation when the event ended? Based on a small percentage of users who might want to reach for some items them missed, we decided to keep the Candy Market open.
Why not just make the event longer and let us earn Candy the whole time?
Then we end up at square one, which is "what do we do at the last moment when people haven't spent their Candy?"
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hopefully it helps explain our thinking a bit more clearly. We're always open to feedback on how to improve our events and make DragonVale the best game it can be.
