This means you'll earn full treasure up until 75,000, after which players will stop earning fairground treasure for the day. Lucky Streak was originally intended as a boon to players who don't have as much time to play, and we think it still fulfills this role as a hard cap while also preventing abuse.

Well drat. Would&#039;ve been nice to have those chances with my Wildclaw girl when I bred her a couple days ago, and only got one egg.

It&#039;s okay though... I enjoy imagining her being like a kiwi, and that one egg taking up most of her internal anatomy. >P

This was such a pleasant thing to wake up to! Thank you so much guys! :D
I agree that there were so many awesome entries. I honestly didn&#039;t think mine stood as much of a chance of being a winner.

Also yay for the games coming back. The changes you made are more than reasonable. It won&#039;t be a problem for me at least.

Am I the only one that can&#039;t actually see the winning skins? D&#039;: All I see is a bunch of ####.png where the images should be.

Edit: Oh yay I can finally see them. :D Congrats to the winners!
