  • I agree,  I had I silo full of jasmine.  Used gold to advance so I had 12pts running per second for 6 plus hours.  That way I could get a little sleep.  Then the hot fix came up and reset to RUTABEGA!!!!  I think we deserve something.  Both coop HWE hot fixes have taken place and we have had the SAME issue.  Fix it before the event.  GG Stop taking and give something back!
  • I am 100k points from the 3 GML's.... if i stay locked out I could lose them....  
    I am getting anxious!!

    I am not sure you want to get on again......the HWE reset again

    Ignoring the HWE, so that is not an issue!  Seriously, I am sorry for the players who are trying to make the HWE work.

  • I lost ground yesterday at the re-set...now today, when the HWE is almost over and those servers that have gotten back on say it is re-set again    :(    What are we to do with you GGS    :|    

      I like the old HWE better by the way and now this has left a bad imprint to remember...not to mention the CCE starts right after  :'(

    @WascallyWabbit On Twitch Dennis said that there is a bug that resets coopevents when the server goes down. And that is was a problem finding this bug because it could not be reproduced. 

    My advice : do a bugfix on your testeserver......that should do the trick. This bugfix sure did the trick, again, on the live server

    I'm on SKN - got in and so did a lot from my coop

    But they are very unhappy, most had put on a lot of crops for the HWE - and spend real money on it so it could last till the end of the silo. 

    Now after hotfix new crops and all their money vasted - how are you going to compensate them??

    and the WWC now got Sweden instead of Nordic - too bad

    If anyone can get on to US1, can you please tell me my points and rank???  I would really appreciate it.
  • Yep, the second mess-up in two days. Great those hot-fixes!

    And the compensation we got was not more than a very very poor tip.

    Conclusion: we won't play the CHWE anymore. Please don't harass us with it again and get rid of that part of the game.

    I only use gold in the FHWE and very minimal, however, I agree that those that used gold in this event should get it back.

    We'll all be able to get on at the same time. CF said it's taking longer because it's the largest server.

    30 minutes later US1 still down after other servers running.   I do have experience with servers and I am sorry but it does NOT take 30 minutes to restart a server, even from complete shut down. 

    Now 40 minutes past other servers already up and running and US1 still down.  

    Now 50 minutes past other servers already up and running and US1 still down.

    Now over 1 hour past other servers already up and running and US1 still down.

    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 took half a day off today, because sometimes ya' just gotta do that!  I left the game yesterday, expecting apples to be my next product needed for the silo, and knowing I wouldn't be back until later today, I thriftily started an apple orchard upgrade with Steve yesterday morning...........boy oh boy......what GOOD does it do anymore to try to PRE PLAN anything!!??   I came back to the farm a little while ago, to a brand new level 8 orchard, yay me!  but a silo that had STARTED OVER WITH CORN!!!!!!........I'm done!!  I hate the silo events anyway, except for fishing and even it's become BORING with the same ol' prizes......I have 4 or 5 trawlers and skipjacks I can't even build!! not to mention tons of crewpeople I win and don't need because I haven't had a motorboat in months!!!!!........ lololololol.......egads........ :s

    Just took a look at your fleet.  You can do the same as me and demo a level 1 boat. Build and demo the new boats, finishing with a replacement for the first one demoed. Ties up your build slot for a while but you end up with a pile of cash. You can also use up low level crew people on higher level boats. They're not as effective so it's a good way to adjust your catch without using more expensive resources. Little freezers come in handy when there are just a few more fish in the pool than there is room for them on a boat.


    I'm so happy I read this.  I thought you could only use trawler people and coolers on a trawler.  Silly me. I never tried it.

    Yeah I am not really playing it either.  The only one I play and put any effort into  is the fishing one.  Yes I also feel bad for those that have put a lot of effort into it and their fertilizers and their gold.  Quite frankly people should be compensated for this, due to the circumstances, not just given a bit of fertilizer and feed.

  • I was at 4.5 million...... watching the hours tick away is agonizing.......
  • I'm in!!  Woo hoo!!  I'm at 4,592,000.....
  • And, again, new items asked for in the HWE     Really?  why bother to plan?  2 days in a row down the drain not to mention specials seeds and seaweed items

  • So..... that means I missed the GML's by only 8k before the update..... Stink!!!!!
  • Shay1968 (US1)Shay1968 (US1) Posts: 1,324
    Does GGS really think 50 seaweed feed, 100 seaweed fert, and 10 seaweed humus really cuts it??  Do they not realize how much seaweed fert it actually takes to get apples to level 10?   It takes several hundred.  When the game is stopped abruptly and all the crates are changed, and the timer is at a complete standstill,  this leaves no option but to use seaweed items to try and get back on track.  GGS needs to be a lot more realistic in their compensation especially to the players in the top 50.

    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days

    The compensation given was nothing compared to what was lost, AND the individual scores are lost again.

    It looks like I will still be in the top 50 & my co-op is also still top 50.

    In an attempt to still get the 3 gold certificates, I just spent about 2,000 in gold to bump up my points per second. If I do make it, it will be with little time to spare.

    A lot of people have used up large amounts of resources to make up for the server downtime & reset. There really should be compensation to equal out what was spent.

    :( I will not be playing the HWEevents! I suggest that the events first be tested before they start it

    til that time i won't playit, sick of all the bugs and problems

  • Hi all,
    Yes I also missed the fishing hour due to this downtime! That was really bad timing...I was finishing George and a few other tasks and now I have missed the 100% fishing hour and will not get the full loyalty bonus. 

    Saw on the forum that the US1 server was back up and when I went to sign in it still did not work.
     
    Very frustrating...

    Our WWC scores are gonna go down even further because of this additional debacle!   Heck, viking scores are going down too, do we get a compensation for this loss.  I sure am not holding my breath....
