Outside of naming, the chests are exactly the same as the ones in Summer Solstice (all the rewards match). You just have to go by the cost in order to compare.I've put together a few images showing which shells give the most value for money depending on whether you're aiming for grand prizes/pearls or daily prizes. It's based on the event info found on ElvenGems. I hope some people find this useful.
That did make sense for the Phoenix event, after all we had 3 Phoenix buildings, but with one grand prize building what's the point of more artifacts than 9? Can we use them for other buildings? Will the summer event next year have the same artifacts with a different grand prize building?
i believe another of the evolving buildings is made a grand prize and then you get more artifacts to evolve it.That did make sense for the Phoenix event, after all we had 3 Phoenix buildings, but with one grand prize building what's the point of more artifacts than 9?

I see it completely different from the perspective of a semi-casual player who hasn't huge amounts of time to spend on the game. As you don't have a guideline you don't really have an idea how much time/space/resources you need to plan for to realistically be able to upgrade the grand prize to Level 10. You have no idea if and when you want to use speed boosts. Before I was able to know how far I get based on the quest list, now its just ... vague. So for the first time I have already decided before the event that I won't be going for the Grand Prize and just maybe pick up some dailies.As there is no end to the quest line then people don't have to feel the need to do more than they can get through. There is no right or wrong as to how much to do.
I don't think thats a new problem. Already before people were able to pay their way through several grand prizes with the special offers.The second problem is that if there is an unlimited quest line it means that those few players willing to throw massive amounts of diamonds at the game will have the ability to construct several different evolving buildings. If Phoenixes are offered after the initial building has been completed I wonder how many Fire Phoenixes it will be possible to win if someone pays thousands of pounds to do it. It is win-win for Inno, but there could be people out there willing to pay enough money so that they can guarantee themselves top places in all the tournaments from here on in. I hope that I am wrong and this isn't possible.
