    Thankfully no lag on INT at this moment.

    Wow, that was exhilarating !
    We picked a 30 minute challenge from close to the bottom of the pile and three minutes later we had finished all the required harvests !
    Now we're just collecting bonus points, which will be converted to a 15 minute booster when we start our next challenge.
    Haven't used a single piece of gold to finish the challenge.
    Sure, I wouldn't want to do this continuously for days on end but this, right now, was a lot of fun :smiley:

    It's quite true,though, the interface for the event itself is very slow at the moment, even if the rest of my game is not affected.

  • Yes game very very slow

    We are having troubles accessing the event through the parking lot stand.
     No choice on which challenges we want to or can do.
     Very slow loading and even a slower response to actions.
    or freezes up forcing a reload of the game.
  • Bogging down the game like, a snail tryin' to slide through peanut butter. 
    The personal rewards aren't updating on the board either. 
    My Cabin straight spitting out items - board still says 1 of 50. 

    I mean, I'm confused as hell as what I'm actually doing, (Yes, I watched the video already), 
    but uh, ok.

    Every time I click on the new event the game freezes and I get a Windows pop-up on the bottom of the screen saying Big Farm is not responding.
  • honestly, this is just a combo of cc and the village league -- it will bomb too -- don't like it -- just another way of goodgame trying to get ppl to buy more gold -- starting to turn me off and i'll buy less gold :smile:
     -- going to stick w/the coop challenge since they are decreasing the number of times it's gonna happen :smile:
     -- sorry, goodgame all the hype really ... for this ... and, the lag is horrible, horrible, horrible -- i'm done
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I thought we could handle a medium challenge the first time out. 165,000 wild flowers, 278,000 eggs, 864,000 apples, and 1,154 humus in 6 hours is ridiculous. We are never going to do this. So disappointed.

    I think it might be a good idea to check out the coop you are thinking of doing a challenge on, then decide according to all of their farms if you think you could do the challenge or not.  Knowing who your opponent is will probably be a big help before you choose your challenge.  Well, my thoughts on the subject anyway.

    @Fried Tater (US1)  I have already heard the same from another coop, so it looks like a few are probably in the same boat as you are.
  • nap time for me -- maybe it will be gone when i wake up :smile:

    First, I did love the time granularity.  I was able to pick one that ends at a certain time, when I knew me or deputies could start another one.  This great!

    I am favorably disposed so far, BUT

    Are there not going to be cash boosters?.....100 gold per minute adds up very fast.

    Does this mean that members are unable to search and start challenges?  So hope it is just leaders and deputies.

    Video said that only Deps & Leads could start a new challenge within 10 minutes of the end of a challenge.  After that 10 minutes, then anyone could start the next one.

    Where's the video? We finished 2nd in a Village Fair challenge but didn't receive ranking reward?

    causing a lot of lag and occasional freezing...….filter does not appear to be working.....some products appearing in shorter challenges seem inappropriate for the time of the challenge

    You can't finish 2nd in a Village Fair challenge - you either complete it or you don't complete it.

    Ranking rewards for the Village Fair won't be awarded until the Fair is over (about 6 days from now)

    I have almost never lag...now everything is lagging.....come on GGS, not fair to implement new stuff if you dont have serverspace to run it!!

    Tried a 30 mins - didn't have to spend gold, but quite alot of seaweed...then I won some new fertilizer ...it says it gives me 86 apples...why would I wanna use that one?

    How do you start a brand new challenge? I want to start a very long challenge but doesn't have a start challenge button to start it? I guess only certain co-ops can start a new challenge?

    It stinks as you can't start your own challenge plus you don't get to see what you have to collect before join a challenge already in progress apparently.

    disappointed numbers  it wont give me any fun to play
    and it made the game   SLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

    i say in the dumbster with it and finaly  launch    VOLCANOFARM  



  • eissol (NL1)eissol (NL1) NL1 Posts: 21
    So disapointed.

    A filter that does not work and gave a stupid challenge..ridiculous amounts to collect.
    And yes, everything is so slow...

    I must agree...no fun for me !
  • Constructive feedback:

    The lag is terrible - having to refresh after every 2 or 3 harvests makes play unpleasant - the game needs to be fun and relaxing.

    The amounts needed are simply not doable - they ned adjusting to be more realistic.

    Gold only boosters wont work - people will not spend the huge amounts of gold you are asking for to get a small booster.  Granted we can earn the boosters, but put farm dollars boosters back in and keep everyone happy.

    The video says something about the reduction in cc's - only 2 or 3 a month.  Please for goodness sake, open your eyes and read what players are saying.  There are too many.  3 is not a reduction at all!  Players want less events and not more - its not difficult to understand, so why?  What are we saying that is not clear?  One cc per month.  One village fair per month.  One cwhe event per month or a fhwe.  Stop throwing events at us the whole time - you are already and will continue to lose players until you sort this out.  Players that do spend on gold.  You will lose revenue.  Is that clearer?

    I had high expectations for the Village Fair - coming right after the amazing Soccer/Football Event!

    But boy oh boy is this one disappointing.

    Boosters you can only buy with gold!

    Prizes! The grand coop prizes are worthless decos that will just be demolished. Where are the decent coop prizes? A tropical cow, a viking duck!! If you want to give a deco then it should be a worthy prize, like a 2x2 deco with 100 happiness and 50 village happiness.

    Tiny mention: special rutabaga seeds are not a reward in any way, shape, or form. Rarely used and easy to make by the few who do. Obviously the team doesn't play the game.

  • Is there a way to tell who starts a challenge? If a member of your own coop started it, or if your coop was challenged.

    We aren't challenged by other coops in this one. The challenge is to complete the list.
  • no way too tell who started challenge! this was at least addressed in last village run! all longer items will demolish all hope for bonuses for finishing, out of reach totally! game is reaching hard for your money!

    Point is....if you buy enough gold, you don't have to work as hard  B)
