  • Some of my team mates are wondering if they need to make more goldfish flakes.  Me too.  I had it set to cover the time but now????????? 

    Mods?
    @Artmaker (GB1) If the fish food runs out the goldfish will stop generating points for you so if you would like to continue to gain points until the end of the event, you will need to make more goldfish flakes.

    @CuddlyFoxes, do you know what was going on with the "maintenance update"?  I personally cannot detect what went on or what changed or was updated.  Thanks.

    Just as finished this post, I went back to my farm, and there was another "Maintenance Update" signal.  Now I really do want to know what is going on.  Can you clue me in?  Thanks.

    Can we not get any info on the start of the Viking/Festive Farm?  Is this too much to ask?  If it starts in the next 4 days, it nullifies our rewards from the events ending today.
    Hey @gavinfarms (US1) the Festive farm will start on December 5th. :)
    Great.  Thank you for filling us in.

    @CuddlyFoxes
    Is the WWC been extended? 




    But the timer says otherwise....

    I do not have a cat tree, so where does the cat charm goes.  I got some from the Santa's calendar and fish event, but they are not in any of my inventory boxes.

    If you don't have a cat tree, they go nowhere. You just lose them.

    Next time cycle through the reward window. One of the options instead of Cat Charms will be farm dollars.  You can pick that if you don't have a cat tree.

  • Because the event wants me to produce wet pig feed, I have to sell my 24,865 wet feeds accumulated at a loss.  Worse event of the year .

    The event asks for 15000 corn.  This is way too much in 6 days for actively harvesting corn for a total of 16 hours.  That is 3 hours active a day including planting and harvesting times.  If using special seeds, it will cost 50 seed packs.  This is calculated with 5 level 4 fields.

    You're lucky. Mine wants 36,350. 

    and 2,120 Cow Feed (88 hours to make, running windmill 24 hours a day)
    and 118,140 apples. (45 straight hours of harvesting, with no sleep).

    It's easily triple the amount(s) required over last year.

    So much for spending time with the family at Christmas.

  • Calendar shows Hawaii should have started by now -- but we all know those things start on Fridays.

    And it has the horse season ending in a few days.

    Calendars of events shouldn't be that difficult to keep straight.

    Your correst art,  but we are talking about ggs here , did i read a few months ago the co-op challenge would be every 2 weeks ? yet i believe we had it 4 times in Oct, and 4 times in November.

  • I am sorry but I must say the following to GGS before I explode!

    Having a CC during this event is just the dumbest thing ever. How are we supposed to get our Work Order list full when we're holding our stables and fields for missions. Just cancel the stupid thing and let us have just one month without it so we can do this event that we have all waited for. What is wrong with you people!
    its simple, we are supposed to use gold, how many CC's will we have through December ?

    I may be wrong I usually am, but has anyone noticed a reduction in the amount of edge plants we are getting after the hotfix?? or am I just imagining it??

    Do I remember this correctly? If we over produce something on our lists, don't we get personal bonus credit towards our individual deco, or a boost to it's value?

    Are you running a production booster?  Some of us have found out it's decreasing the edge plants by 50%, but still requiring the original length of time to clear the field. :(

    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

    Take heart, each chapter gets even harder.  :o:D

  • Of course the coops with 50+ members won't have to worry as they have more than enough help, however us smaller coops always seem to not be built into the equation when these "team" event rules are put into action with new events.

    I wish GGS would make this & future coop events fair across the board.  That way a coop of 10 or a coop of 75 can have an even chance on finishing the event. 

    Is it possible to just avoid this event all together??
    @Chicaa (US1)  I have to disagree with you here. The balance of this event is not the size of the coop, but how many empty spaces they have in the members list. If you have a coop that can hold 75 members & you only have 40, then you cannot get the maximum. It doesn`t matter if you have 75/75 or 5/5, you can do equally as well, in fact 5/5 is a lot easier imo.-That is exactly what our coop had last year & we only had to complete 5 lists each week & our deco was equal to one that a coop of 75/75 members would get for completing 75 lists.
