    My first mystery task was a generic 23 people fully served. My town was fully loaded and fully served so that task was a breeze. Second task was the Strongman task. Since I had none and four full trains only supplied 1 Strongman obviously I wasn’t going to get anywhere with that task. At that rate I would have had to bring in 28 or more full train loads. After pitching that sad joke of a task, my third task was the diner for 10 persons. A full train load got me 1 person going to diner. There were no persons to pick up from community members. Three town tasks in a row. Don’t try and tell me this isn’t ridiculous. Challenging is one thing, this kind of drop rate is stupid.

    Funny, this is what drove our entire community away, over half have quit for good. Since we bought the diamonds for most of our community that 6 month break saved us $2,400. Well, didn’t save money as we just spent it on other games. Now it’s just my husband and my three farms. This derby has proved that nothing has improved or changed. It’s all about trying to force diamond use. We stopped buying the big chests and are only paying for Tom, Rose, and Ernest. I just happen to have a few extras I wasted on the trains. Never doing that again. In fact I won’t use diamonds to bring in boats anymore.

    Mystery derby is def about getting the players to use diamonds.

    Best opt out, or just play enough not to get a bottom 3 place.

    what are you talking about?

    if you have an issue like that with a boat timer, then report it to in game support and post in bugs here on the forum.

    We don't throw diamonds! Normally we have finished by this time, last week Gold. Now slowly moving at 13th place. Main problem: town visitors not showing up, with 6 horses and excellent cooperation. Hopefully we will stay in CL.

    I have been working on a train task of 8 X cowboy since Monday, it's now Thursday night and only 6 have arrived on many trains. It's possible to send two trains arrive without any Cowboys on then only one on the next one. Trashing the task only reduces your points total and you would more likely get relapsed.

    Tasks should be achievable in a reasonable time. The train tasks are the worst ax you have no control over the process.

    Good game spoilt by bad management.

    No control over the process? Now I'm very curious about your strategy to tackle this derby task. Are you serving visitors exclusively from your Eggspress Train? If so, your strategy is more challenging than mine because I serve visitors exclusively from my Personal Train.

    My ET arrives every 6 hours and drops off 14 visitors. In contrast, my PT may pick up 10 visitors every 1.5 hours. Luckily for me, my hoodmates sent enough visitors for me to pick up most of the time. If not, then I'd use chat to inform them I'm working on a visitor derby task and would they send away specific visitors?

    Lucky me, doing the derby with two other players that have gone MIA....cannot find reliable peeps. As a Leader, I feel rather frustrated. It may be time for a break or join another group....I have done 7/9 while working a full time nursing job (just off 2 busy challenging 12 hour shifts). I love mystery derby...he he...cause you donít know whatís next!

    Thanks for your game support. Next time try asking your neighbors to send their strong mans to the station for pick up. You might find it a bit less costly. You should already know that the eggspress will avoid bringing the type of visitor that your task in hand needs. It is part of the game programming.


    Don’t forget about boats that don’t come in even after waiting over 8 hours and it still says another 4 hours on boat timer.
    Try logging into that farm so you boat will come after 4 hrs.
    Actually what you say is possible if you are watching that farm boat dock from another account and the farm you are watching is not logged in at that time.
    Same goes for the Eggspress train. It will not arrive in your town until after it is due and you are logged into that account and go to your town layout.
