Last year Chinese New Year was great.  Please do not fiddle with it too much.  Only change may be adding VHP somehow.

    Hey there Tiggergirl I'm not sure why you would be loosing % of your zodiac signs. I know today only the Rat zodiac signs will count.

    yeah - I know that only the rat cards count today... but this is the total count towards each card... yesterday when I logged out I checked the percentages - my lowest one was the pig at 5% and my highest one was the tiger at 37%... when I logged on this am my pig was at 3% and my tiger was at 20% - that is a HUGE loss.... not real happy about it since I worked my tail off for that yesterday.... but can't really do anything about it - since GGS "holds all the cards" LOL :disappointed:

    You are right that does seem strange. Have you sent in a report to support about this issue?

    I am working on the right wording (lol) I don't want to be rude about it, but it is very discouraging.... 37% down to 20% is almost half... and knowing support they'll want a picture of the issue - lol you can't get a picture of the percentages and of course I who'da thunk i'd need one? lol  anyways... yeah I am working on that - thanks DataKing :)  there are others in my coop that have noticed the same thing on their card percentages... so just watch yours too.....

    Thanks TiggerGirl I will ;)  sorry to hear about your loss. Hopefully they can get this fixed very soon. Yes I know they would prefer pictures but you seem to have a way with words so I bet you could describe the problem well enough for them to understand.  :)

  • It happened to me too.  Not only that but today my collecting is not even registering.  Stupid game.  Sending any ticket in is worthless. Still haven't received any communication from the one I sent in last September when GGS stole 990 gold from me.

  • My percentages mysteriously doubled yesterday, then when I logged on again, they had gone back down. Maybe a display glitch?

    That happened to me too, just as the fireworks showed up, then my screen froze. When I reloaded it was back to the original numbers

    Well I will be doing a pass if the deco is as ugly as the last one never have used it  too darn ugly although I liked the event otherwise.

  • Hi Fellow Big Farm Gamers,

    It is 2:05am and I have already managed to get the maximum award 20/20 for the Chinese New Year event, I have many zodiacs up to 25% am I love the events and so far all have been really enjoyable, however this one goes on for 14 days and unless I am missing something I can complete this within one day (if I had the energy to stay up) so maybe it needs an add on of some kind, if not I will be really bored for the next two weeks. However it is not lost on me that I don't understand things straight off and I may be misunderstanding the event. Any feedback would be great.

    Thanks everyone.

    they said they made it a little easier this year but last year i got all 20 prizes for all but i think 3 days i only got to like prize 18 and did not get all the circles done so ended up with a 7x7 with a happiness of 90 which is useless to me and that was with me buying a lot of boosters but i do not think i can buy as many boosters seeing how it costs 4x as much this time as last so you might change your mind on how easy you think it is about half way through but just my opion

    DAY 1: Just SIX HOURS into the event, my daily tasks for fishing / activate machines / play a mission have arrived... and with it "activity challenge" has gone onto DAY 2: collect RAT chips... despite the clock for "time until next challenge" is still counting down with 18 hours remaining.
    Seems like they don't synchronize.

    Anyone else seeing this???

  • @safk001 (GB1) Each day there is a new activity challenge with 20 rewards, so you would not be able to complete those in advance, but if you have already colllected 100% of an animal, to earn its deco part or whatever, you can still continue to collect chips for that one to increase the final decos happiness. At least thats how it worked last year if I recall correctly.

    @Seeker1 (US1) That always happens to players on US1 (and sometimes on AU1) for events that have a daily reset. Instead of resetting to the next day at midnight CET, your days reset at midnight CST, so you are always 18 hours ahead of everyone else & you get a shorter 1st day & longer last day... No idea why & no idea why the same started to happen for AU1 in the hunting events, but didn`t seem to happen in the Santa event..... Tis' a Twilight Zone mystery!
     
  • safk001 ..I agree with you that this event seems easy ... but on the first day you will need to harvest and produce to collect all chips to get the rewards .. day two is to collect all , but only the rat chips will earn you the rewards ..I will assume that the next 12 days will be a different animal to earn the rewards from.  Then on the last day ..who knows ... my first NEW YEAR event .. ..the first challenge took me about 20 min as I came online just in time for the 15 min booster ... so one complete harvest got me through it .... been working on the rat challenge for a few hours now ... have 112% on the ring but still have 4 rewards to earn ..so a couple more hours I'm guessing ... but good luck to you ... have fun .... and don't let the game fool you into submission

  • Not everybody play's all day.

    So adding a new feature to the event would only benefit the fast players and the people who are spending gold.

    And i am not spending any gold to such events, because the ones that make the deco are still at 1% and the others are already in the 20-30%.

    So, fix that first ( make an even distribution of cards). Than others extra's please

  • You need 7% in a day per animal.15 day's times 7 is 105%.

    If it is this tempo of card-collecting, i won't even get to 20% of most animals in 15 day's.

    It ends up in a deco of about 50-60 points, but 7x7. So it's not better than the ussualy deco's from events.

  • Does anyone know if there is a sound effect for the firework start?

  • lthrrr (GB1)lthrrr (GB1) Posts: 1,665
    Does anyone know if the fireworks will only be at certain times? A co-op friend of mine has informed me that we had 2 lots near the start of the event, but as that was in the early hours here in the UK, I missed them both. But apparently there have been no more for about 8 hours now !

  • I've seen no fireworks since 8am here @lthrrr (GB1)
    Don't dare to touch my farm so hope it will be real soon now.
