It seemed this year's competition was not satisfying to many people, due to the lack of action and many complaining there was a scarcity of Eggs. I would like to know what everyone thought about the competition this month, do you deem it a success or a failure, and what would you like to see implemented in the next one to make it more enjoyable?

I got 11 eggs. Without having to spend time hitting F5 or anything. Just my normal routine as an active trader and sender and receiver of IGM's.

maybe combine the finding of eggs and the "tag hunt" competitions so that we can steal eggs... but only from our levels above our own or some randomised qualifier... anyway once you have the eggcellent merit why bother at all unless a new collectors merit is available

I liked the addition of the bonuses from finding the eggs - especially the 50e in the middle of a chain. Other than that, it's not great. It obviously doesn't engage you - if it's meant as a break between heavy attacking competitions it's better than nothing, but more suited to just being a week long.

I did not find many (and I missed a few by changing pages too quickly), but the tradeable aspect of the eggs balances that out for anyone truly determined to get the merit. Of course, the eggs are free items that can be quite valuable, so the availability should stay pretty low.

Perhaps next time the drop rate could be made a little more even for everyone, but I would not advocate a very significant change. This competition was fun for what it was; a very small investment of time and the brief excitement of seeing an egg.

I'm not going to complain about getting stuff for free and I think they are busy working on other stuff so they devoted next to zero time on this competition. There was nothing there for people who participated last year and it obviously needs to be refreshed, but they are busy. Hopefully it will all be worth the wait.

I found 3. Never mind something is better than nothing.
I liked the bonuses they added to each egg, which made me more than happy in finding one of those

I didn't miss a day on Torn during the competition. I found two eggs on the first day, was excited and happy, found two more in two weeks (there was a click on an invisible egg due to ignorance) and then zero. What started off as fun slow degraded into not caring at all and growing an appriciation for why others were lethargic towards the competition.

I liked the bonuses in finding the eggs. It gave a reason beyond the honor/merit. At some points during the event, I spent a good deal of my gaming session clicking into every single facet of the game I could thing of with nary a result.

Having not read this thread, my opinion is that I would have enjoyed this more as a fun-only event without need of monetary gain and could have simply found more eggs. Without speaking for practicality, but if every player had a chance to find all nine (meaning the eggs are there but you have to find them) would have been more fun than not finding anything at all for very long stretches of time.

As a first timer, I was looking forward to this event, but now, unless there is a change, I'm not looking forward to it next year.

The bonuses were definitely very nice to have.

Whilst they were scarce they were also free so I can't complain about that.

Bear in mind too that Easter was over by the time the competition had started, most of the eggs that were left were past their use by date, so we had a limited stock to give out. That's also why most of you found more near the start of the contest, those were the eggs that were just about to go past the use by date, had to get them out quickly.

Compare to the last 2 year this year was a total fail, i finish with 3 real and 68 fake eggs, thats been active on mobile pretty much all day, clicking every link possible in the game, looking at hundreds and hundreds of profile and bazzars,
Not that finding them would made me a rich player like it did the first year but would been alot more fun to find some.
Last year was better, not only for the ipad but i found one at least every 3-4 days, hopefully they change it for next year or just take it out completly

Free stuff is free stuff, so like said before it is better than nothing.

But I think there could be more engaging competitions. I don't like the random aspect of the easter egg hunt, I was active all month and still only found 4 eggs. I think that competitions that reward you for doing something would be better, not competitions where you have the same chance of 'winning' if you try or don't try.

I skipped the searching and just bought the eggs needed from the item market to guarantee the merit... but i found the eggs were few and far between, then again since I already had the merit, I was not really looking for them

Pretty boring. Was excited to do this comp but it was not worth the time invested.
Usually I would just log in, use my energy and nerve and leave. In order to have a chance I stuck around longer when I would log in, just to find few, or the annoying fake eggs.
And even though I did find about 11-12 eggs, I wasted days on Torn just to find those, and those that I did find would not have completed the set. Ended up with 2 yellows and 4 reds, 1 white, 1 blue, 1 orange, 1 black, 2 brown.
