SilverMoon posted two months ago about the Bali statue always giving messages about "come back in x days". A fix should have happened by now, but things haven't changed since then, and the post was closed for more comments.
Right now we are in Florida with only 3 days left, and the Orange Tree has NEVER given any prizes since we've been here. It says it will be available in hours now, but I'll believe it when I see it. It'll be dead with no leaves or oranges on it, then we'll be gone and probably still won't have gotten anything from it.
If this isn't a glitch, but a deliberate attempt to give us fewer "free" prizes, it certainly has been poorly handled, making us wait until we're almost ready to leave a port before we get anything. Players who've been here any length of time have formed expectations of how things should be, due to the way things have worked previously for so long.
Also the few prizes that we have gotten from these items lately have just been more starfish and seahorses. As Boom Boom posted in the SilverMoon thread, England was definitely the BEST, where the Tea Shoppe sign gave great prizes and we got them very frequently. I think we mostly got them every four hours. Been downhill every since then. In Paris, we didn't even have a free prize thing, since the Boulangerie got converted to a pay-for-prize, so we had three of those instead of the usual two for pay and one free.
Even with the new Milestones, with this kind of stuff happening the value we get for paying $20 a month to be a VIP here is starting to be even less worth it than it used to be. Plus there's still no way around needing to buy additional gems on a monthly basis. Unlike CW where you have a city to generate coins, passes and gems, there's no way to generate getting more of them here.
