This is the first time Build Battle was featured in an event in 2018.
This is the second time in a row that Miner's Haven has been featured in an Innovation event.
The Build Battle segment received criticism for it being “Pay to Win” with the extra colors gamepass and how players with budget PCs were having issues as the GUIs are too large to build on 1366x768 displays, however general issues were identified as being the unnecessarily long intermissions and no way to specifically vote for Innovation event themes.
It was also criticized for being way too difficult to obtain the prizes on Build Battle.
The Miner’s Haven segment recieved criticism for the objective for the Black Panther Spear taking too long as you had to wait over 1,000 seconds (over 16 minutes) with unupgraded ore and you would be kicked from the server for idling for 20 minutes. More experienced players would have an easier time getting the Spear as they own more advanced items that fill up the generator faster. Such items include traits like faster ore drop rate and bigger "upgrade count" (one upgrader can apply 20 upgrades at once).
Moon Tycoon had recieved criticism for not saving prizes.
