After four hours of playing the event, I came to the conclusion that I wanted a crow character.  Thanks.

Not sure if a bug or intentional but up to 4 crows can appear (the extra with one of the crow's name repeated) and while the posters show 3 crows with red, yellow and green clothing, only red and green show.

It's just random. There's 4 Crow Kids per tree, but only 3 Crow Kid design, so some repetition is inevitable.

Speaking of Crow Kids, I love how they cheer you on during minigames.

Getting close to the Crow Goodfather will give you access to buy the Cawnival tree for gold nuggets and seeds, once you plant the tree you can access to mini-games structures you buy with seeds and golden nuggets and game tokens you buy with either seeds or golden nuggets. 

Completening a mini-game will reward you with tickets, which you can use to buy festival items: food, clothing, and structures to place and decorate the tree.

do u need seeds and gold in ur inv to get access to buy the tree? i stand basically on top of him and still cant get him to sell me the tree Dx

what does the Slush, Seeds and Token do?

Not sure if anyone has answered you yet but the Slush I think has similar stats to Asparagazpacho or whatever its called, the seed pack when opened gives four corn seeds (not sure if you can get other seeds) and the token is used to play the minigames - each token gives you one go at one of the minigames - you can buy 3 tokens for 1 gold or 1 for 1 seed.

I can't agree with you. This event as simple, as it must be. It just holiday event, like Winter Fest, it shouldn't be hard or massive. I really like how it plays right now, Klei only must add a few more carnawal games.

 

and the price is dst will get even less storyline updates because now klei has to babysit and produce >4< seasonal holiday updates a year now.

Says who? There is nothing forcing Klei to spend time and effort on adding more and more content to the holiday events every year. Hallowed Nights 2020 had exactly zero changes from its 2019 incarnation and Winter's Feast 2020 only had a couple of extra adornments to its name, which couldn't have taken more than 1-2 people working for a day or two to implement.

I would be tempted to agree if we weren't still 6 characters short of refreshes after three years, not counting Winona possibly needing another.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who feels this way upon reading threads where people are complaining of lack of content for a game they only had to pay for once but still get Major updates for, for free. They easily could have put up pay walls for all of the major content updates, or put more skins/characters behind DLC that has to be bought (non-weaveable).

There's not much to this event, but i love it. It's simple, doesn't require me to put hours into the game to see everything. (Unlike the Moonstorm event which i haven't even touched.) Gives great decorations and structures, and my little town feels more alive with now a third sentient race.

I don't think people take in account what content Klei makes for each event. I highly recommend people look at the link I pasted from @Instant-Noodles. The data miner has been showing off each event content. It's not just coding, but fully rendered puppet rigs to emulate a 2-d cartoon. 

I can't even want to imagine how much time it takes to make a Griftlands sprite sheet.:wilson_shocked:

Honestly it does seem like they forgot to include the equivalent of the giant teddy bear, a lure that I might get something fun and exciting, instead it’s filled with cheap fish pond prizes I’m not interested in.

when you stand next to the crow at the florid postern, you have a crafting menu where you can get the tree.

Except this is where your WRONG when Klei compared it to WintersFeast and Hallowed Nights I was expecting it to Be Like WintersFeast or Hallowed Nights..

As in: Unique skins and/or abilities for existing game mobs, or bosses in the game (Feast Clops or Ginerpig & Ginger Varg from WF Event) or even how on Hallowed Nights Totally Normal Trees come alive with glowing flaming eyes.

In fact: I would compare this Event more closely to the “Year of the” Events- Because your getting tokens, your doing an Event.. and your using your tokens to get goodies with.

Which is NOT What you do during WintersFeast OR Hallowed Nights.. both of those events do not have a “lucky golden nuggets” type of structure to them.

And in my opinion the only similarities between this new Carnival Event and HN/WF is that you grow a tree and you decorate it with ornaments.

That said- the new mini-games are kinda fun, I wish there were a lot more AND that the ones we have weren’t so simple... but it is what it is-

A few suggestions to Improve existing games- Make it so you have to pick up grub and feed it to each mechanical crow rather than picking the grub up once then just walking around feeding.

on the egg scramble game maybe add some “Rotten Eggs” that you have to try to Avoid collecting instead of just running them all to the light.

I have to obviously cut Klei some slack because this is the first year for this new event.. but I was expecting things like re-skinned event bosses, a new event themed hunt like GingerVarg, and a whole bunch of new event cosmetic items with increased odds of obtaining those types of items during the events duration.

Geez Klei you make an event all about Crows.. you totally missed the opportunity to reskin Malbatross into a giant crow boss.

If each year introduces new Cawnival games and continues to expand the event itself outside of just Carnival games then I will fully welcome and embrace this event.

But when they called this a Summer event, I can’t lie and say I wasn’t expecting a much much needed Summer season rework to accompany it.

Overall: and ironically enough- This is a fun distraction from the Main Attraction. Which should be more biomes to explore and mobs to fight and ways to survive the world of Dont starve. Hopefully fun Mini-Games won’t end up becoming ALL that DS/DST is in a few years.

 

Okay sorry just had to get that out my system, love you guys <3 I can tell a lot of love and thought went into this, good job!

Probably that has to do with the fact that this has been a slow year in gameplay, 2 year events that last a few weeks, a quality of life that had to do with the menu, Wes refresh happened, and EOTS has been the only addition gameplaywise (also being late game content makes it less accesible if you don't have already a world with all the requirements).
