  • This is no fun. We are stuck not being able to farm things until you do the update. Have you noticed we don't already have the speed fertilizer and it takes hours to make cherries and other orchard items? We need them ready for the fair and you have just tied our hands for any farming until it starts. Please give us a specific time for the update. I know you don't want to be held to a time, but we want to farm.
    I'm farming normally. We probably plan to avoid Orchard challenges to start with to avoid the problem and build up a stock of speed fert
    Uncle John, that's one tip. What do we do when we have challenge after challenge to do for a week? We can't even harvest all of our milk at the same time or we won't have it for the next few missions, if they call for it. This is like missions on steroids. I can see some serious roid rage in the future when we're working out strategies to complete these. We also have to teach the whole co-op what to look for when choosing the challenges because we need to consider who has what and what's available for harvest and what players are present with bigger resources.
  • This is worse than missions. This is 30 minutes to complete a pre-set amount of something like wheat. Great if you can plant and harvest it in 30 minutes or have several members willing to spend gold to harvest a couple minutes early. Those big bags aren't going to be much help if we can't harvest them in the allotted time. What if someone chooses a milk mission and everyone spent their milk on the last challenge? Do we all do short feeds for the day on the chance that we'll need it for the next challenge? Will that make enough? Way too many problems with this type of set up. Finding successful strategies will be a challenge in itself.
  • Once again, it's all focus toward gold.  Some of us have homes to pay for, bills and family to take care of and just want a game that is relaxing and enjoyable to take some of our stress away.  I loved this game but it is starting to get more stressful all the time, it's all about buying gold for a game to get small things.....  I am losing interest and that makes me sad.  Maybe it's time I find something else to play that isn't so stressful and so costly.

    Just a silly question. If it's called the village fair, why does it not ask for anything from the village?

    so no dollar boosters - tells you all you need to know
    no ongoing rewards system (ie like the medals) and no apparent benefit for ranking high as a coop - makes it all pointless as far as i can see

    i really dont see any point to any of it apart from hw stuff, which i'll look at when it starts, but on current track record for hw rewards, will be largely rubbish

    yep, cant really make an argument to even bother with it

    Well I'm sorry to all of you that don't seem to like it but I think it is a great improvement. I hate doing missions and feel that I need to do the cc for the coop but it is usually just me as we have mostly part-timers. At last I will get personal rewards for my efforts, not that I am complaining about winning the seaweed feed, but a bit of variety is welcome. I shall not however be spending any gold on this so we shall see how it goes.

    I don't think our team will even bother with it, unless some changes are made after what was shown in the video.

    i thought it was referring to the village fair thing when it said 2-3 times a month and cc would be reduced but hardly, going by what it said, i'll watch that bit again

    to quote:

    this event will occasionally take the place of the co-operative championship and so the average amount of CCS will be a little lower in the future, we expect around two or three of these events to take place per month for

    end quote

    that's a little ambiguous to me, not sure what is two to three times per month, cc or village fair but does look like you were right and it's referring to cc's

    edit:

    if that is the case, in short they're gonna replace a four day cc with a week long village fair lmao

    You're correct -- ambiguous is the word. I was trying to do the math, too, concerning the number of days in the event. 

    I really should reserve judgement, but it looks like one unpopular event is being replaced by another, only this one is blatantly goldcentric.

    oh look how surprising NOT another gold only event for booster made just for the gold buyers....  Well i suppose the top gold buyers need it because without gold they would not be able to win.

    not worth bothering with !!
  • @Lylu (INT1)

    Starting times are being staggered across the servers - keep an eye on the parking areas of your 3 main farms :)

    I watched the video concering the new VL event an noted that the only way to buy boosters is to use gold.  At least in the CCs and the CHWE we could buy boosters using farm dollars.  This is so disappointing.  :'(:(  Those who have tons of gold and are eager to spend real dollars for game gold are the ones who will rise to the top.  Again, it is all about the money (gold) and not about how well one can farm. 
    you got it in one, thats why the gold buyers always win, you dont have to be a good farmer or use good strategies in this game it all about How much gold you can throw in.

  • SuzyQ22 (US1)SuzyQ22 (US1) US1 Posts: 1,475
    Wow, what a disappointment!
  • janflipflo (GB1)janflipflo (GB1) GB1 Posts: 388
    Yes, very laggy  (and it's not something I usually suffer with)
    Not doing one and game running lovely now, hope it gets looked at
