    Since the World Cup runs until mid July and this football event is tied to it, I'd say about a month

    Yeah, since the event seems to be tied to the real-life games (where you bet on the outcome of each match with the whistles), it'll last until at LEAST July 15th.

    First game today is Russia vs. Saudi Arabia, so spend your whistles on one of those teams.

    Each team gets 3 games during the first 3 days, but after that teams will start dropping out. Pay attention to which teams those are, because if they don't win their matches and progress, they are removed from the competition and any whistles spent on them from that point on will just be wasted.

    I won't be doing this the entire time, lol.  I am not a sports nut.  I want the rewards and that is about it.  Right now I am #1 but that will not last long because I am not losing any sleep over this one.  :wink:

    Looks like the rankings are level-dependent.  Highest player in my bracket isn't you, with 56,153 trophies already. :)

    I guess so, I am level 96 now, just leveled up a couple hours ago.  You are against a very high level player I think.  :(

    @Nelie (NL1) Welcome to Big Farm!  Check the email in case there is something you need to click to claim the reward, if not try reloading your game & it may turn up. If all else fails you will need to contact Support, include a screenshot  of the email if you can, so they can exactly which one it is & which decoration you are missing. 

    EDIT: Skip all that, it looks like you are not alone, the emails went out too early, you should get your deco after the hotfix. :)

    Well, that's enough for me, lol.  I won't be watching the games so I will just collect rewards while I'm on and get some useful things, though not many.  Have fun all the soccer nuts!  I mean that in a good way.  :smiley:


  • SuzyQ22 (US1)SuzyQ22 (US1) US1 Posts: 1,475
    I went to my email and followed instructions which was to log in and get a free football deco.  I don't have one.  Is GGS saying just playing the game will get you a free deco?  Because there is nothing in my drop box.  Anyway, goodnight all.

    The email didn't have a "collection" link - the only link was directly to the game, https://bigfarm.goodgamestudios.com/

    It didn't have that super-long link like other gift emails do, such as http://mailings.goodgame.com/ga/click /blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah-https%3A%2F%2Flp%2Demailmarketing%2Egoodgamestudios%2Ecom%2Fincentives%2Fnew%2blahblahblah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah

    (Edited version, of course). :)

    So without the proper (and user-specific) link in the email, there's no way to collect.

    (If you want to pass that along, @WascallyWabbit ) :)

    I got 1 or 2 questions bout this so called New Football Fever for 2018 > 1. where is the USA Team in this? , 2 . Is there something else for the rest of the players who Do Not Follow Sports to do ? , I am also seeing that this event looks to be more bout Soccer then Football, To Me in the USA Football is not a Black & White round ball, Football here is a Brown Egg Shaped ball, All the Teams I am suppose to vote for are not even from My own Country why is that? I do not know any of these countries Teams, So I guess I wont be doing this event yet again. just another Event I have to be left out of I guess. oh well. :(

                                                
  • The email is worded oddly, it doesn't sound like a free grant. 
    Could be a bug though, at this rate, I'm done guessing.

    This is FIFA.  It is an international football tournament.  

    There are plenty of things to do in the game: The weekly deco events, the Cooperative challenge that will start today, the Goldfish event is still running, the Island farm will be back soon.  Also you can still collect rewards from this event just from normal farming.

    Breakdown on the Lab
    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days
    25,264.27 (days) ÷ 365 (days in a year) = 69.22 years to fully upgrade the Lab
    That's if you use the daily earnings to upgrade the Lab ONLY, no spending on other upgrades, islands, boosters, or anything else.

    I am not in a Co-Op so that does nothing for Me as well, but thank you for the info, same with the gold fish got to be in a Co-Op which again I am not in and do not wish to be in one to do things in the game, but again thanks.

    Thank you for the info, but like I said before I do not see USA at all, So I have no clue who I would even want to vote for from other countries, as  I do not even know how they play in this sport or anything bout them, but thanks just the same.

    Is anyone else getting non stop sellers at the market stall on the main farm? I get 3, so I sell to them, they leave and immediately 3 more walk up. The process keeps repeating with no apparent end to it. :smiley:
    @Kat Nip (GB1)  i get them quite often. they are on all three farms. the only thing you need to watch is to don't sell them resources you'll need to create something(they are crazy after aloe vera gel from me), or animal food(i keep huge stack of blue food for that purpose- they want only normal, and once i ended up with nothing to give to my cows).
    when that happens, i usualy sell things to them, and load GF, sell to three there, load FF, sell to three, load MF, etc. so i don't need to wait for them to walk :smiley: ... they can be comming for hours. fills up  (farm)bank account, drains my resources

    The World Cup is every 4 years, and only the top 32 world teams that have won during that time qualify for the World Cup. The USA was eliminated from competition back on Oct. 10, 2017 with their loss to Trinidad and Tobago.

    Thanks Borgia. They're still coming but because they are draining my stocks and I'm having to build up so much stuff after being absent from the game for 3 years, I've chosen to basically ignore them now. It's good to know that my farm isn't outright weird though!  :smiley:

    Aw that is awful, I am not a sport buff so I do not follow sports , I am more into Movies and Music, but thanks for the info, USA Team left Me in a glitch then as they are not in that, I would not even know who else to vote for now, oh well, I will just have to  pass on this Event no problem, thanks for all the info, much appreciated.
