At least completing this week's Event was more doable for me (this time round)
Not going to say 'Nyet' to gaining 120 gems!
It usually takes me 35 to 37 matches and 3 days to reach PvP Pier 1. It required fewer than 35 matches but 5 days to wrap up the Treasure Hunt event. So both of these activities are sufficiently labour- and time- intensive enough that server issues, like we're having now, cause the whole gameplay structure to stress apart.
