Not really an AFK event. The current AFK event we have going on is Larry's Swimming with the Fishes event. This Halloween event only has you AFK for 30 min. to get 2 coins. In that period of time, you could be doing the daily SM's that award additional coins. Also, the Sky Lantern event is still going on, so even if you aren't fishing or you've already finished getting all the pumpkin coins for the day, you could be killing enemies to get sky lantern kits.
This past summer was also full of mostly non-AFK events too, and September was the only month where there was a lull in active events, and that was probably because people were going back to school. I respect that this is your opinion, but it has a very weak basis for an argument, considering the lack of actual AFK events we've been having recently.
Im sorry but that last part is utter garbage. Idk if you haven't played this summer but almost every event was afk. and i did do most of the events this summer. Now if you are counting out the what 4 events that werent afk fine i get it. we had the suspicious wolf, Watermelon thing, that points event. but the rest were mostly afk.
before it too late, you should quickly move to alexina server as there's way more active players and lot easier to have fun in mabi.
