It was not broken at the time this was posted and during my reply. The picture I posted is no longer uploaded, but it contained a successful completion of the exact PTJ the OP was trying to do. The OP obviously simply misunderstood the quest requirements. As I said, other people were able to enter the cooking competition just fine during that time period.
It could very well be broken now, as we've had a few hundred more patches since the start of this thread, and I wouldn't know the current status of the quest as I haven't entered the cooking competition since 2017.
If you're new to this game, you might not realise yet that things regularly break around here, and features that once worked 3 years ago might not be working today, but they certainly did work back then when this thread was being discussed.
Every day I work overtime is another day I fall behind in this event. They better not patch that feeding thing, I'm going to need it since they said an extension is unlikely.
Edit: ngl the only thing about this event that I'm looking forward to is rping as a massive sheep
Edit edit: Alt with neglected sheep is playing as a petite sheep, so the RP mission is based on the actual size of your sheep and not the duration of the event... which means I won't get my massive sheep RP unless I start catching up big time
Enough with the expiring items. Just make them stackable and no-trade and call it a day. :P Either that or just replace all the consolation prizes with variations on coins or tokens that can be exchanged for the real event items.
Poly has the best ideas, this is exactly what they should be doing. The boxes should drop a coin on top of the rng roll for junk, and the event NPC should always have a shop to exchange for guaranteed prizes.
Some of these recent event boxes have been awful. I threw as many alts as I could at the Harmon event and some of them didn't pull even a single tree. And what is wrong with these Baa Baa Boxes? The drop rates are so bad I'm sure there'll be people who won't pull the two fashion equips even if they play it daily.
Thing is, they're holding events like these to pad out their numbers, but if the events are just bad then the opposite happens - people skip it and don't bother logging in at all.
So yeah people can (and should) skip it because it's rubbish, but this kind of discussion and feedback is also important so that Nexon understands why their great ploy to boost numbers isn't working.
Skip the event, but make sure you complain loudly while you do it, so that they don't throw this kind of miserable nonsense at us again.
Previous events of this format did not remove extra food every day, and on top of that, they've been moving back towards events with very few extra days so you can't afford to miss any. I would rather pay cash for the big fat sheep than spend the time playing this event.
