    I wouldn't mind the hard work rewards being replaced with coins IF and only IF there were some very good rewards we could buy with the currency from trader. This is one of the few events left where strategy is king and winners are not decided by wheel spins and concentration games, it should appear more often.

    Hi all,

    Village Fair problem again on HU1 Server.

    The hall of fame started with mistakes. Our coop again in Diamond League but there is few coop's who didn't started the Village Fair event. So they have the points they reached in last Village Fair event.

    After Village Fair started:


    Now:


    As you can see, coop is named Survivor did't started yet. I don't know is there any other server or league where appeared this problem.

    Other problem: one of my coop's member doesn't see Village Fair. We tried everything, clean all cookies, etc, new browser too. What else can we do? Support?

    There is a huge problem with the challenges in Village Fair. For month now, it is extremely hard to find a challenge that does not take 13 hours to complete. Almost all of the challenges now has this length, and that is NOT FAIR. Some time back there were at least in the Bronze sektion a number of smaller challenges to choose from. Please let us have that status back.

    I've checked and the ratio of short to long has not officially changed

    The more farms you choose, Main, Gourmet, and Flower, the more choice you will have

    @RosyStarling

    it definetely changed , maybe 2-3 month's ago?

    It used to be way more shorter ( 30 minutes )

    and way less longer challenges ( 13 hours )

    But i like it how it is :)

    Well I don´t know what you checked, but real life is that there are very few shorter challenges now, and far more 13 hours challenges. See Exxy´s post. I don´t like the long ones. Think there could be a better balance here.

    It may not have changed officially but it has definitely changed !!!!   Bronze and Silver used to have only 1 or 2 13 hour challenges, that ain't how it is today

    This village fair I counted a total of 32 30mins challenges, the village fair before this had a total of 75 30min challenges, so the number of short challenges has definitely been reduced

    Prior to these last 2 village fair in the bronze there was never any 13 hour challenges, you may have had a few mid length challenges but most were only 30 minutes.

    Also silver used to have quite a few 30 minute challenges, but this time there was none, the same for gold.

    Platinum & diamond were the only ones that used to have the only 13 hour challenges. but not any more.

    So yes there has been many changes in the village fair to the time length of all the challenges

    We have passed forward that most of us believe there are fewer short VF Challenges and we would like more

  • I hate to go against the grain but I have really liked the expanded selection of longer village challenges. I especially like that many of them can actually be finished by an average co-op. Picking challenges is tough and there are many things to consider when picking one. Experience really helps. Everyone still picks one here and there where you say "what was I thinking?".

    I am the guy that complained forever in the suggestions that my coop always had members starting really long challenges. The long ones are valuable and a better selection means we can find some that all of our members can participate in, even the new members. The key is "when" you put the long ones on and our problem was that it was happening during the day when we were trying to score, or at the end of the fair when we were really trying to score.

    I was having a hard time picking longer challenges a couple months ago now it is much easier. There are still so many challenges to choose from, including short ones, it gives me a headache looking over them trying to find the perfect one. It seems to me the selections have always ebbed and flowed and I do really like where we are at now.

    I could not log in to forum for several months (always went to German forum) and I always wanted to thank Timinu and everyone for finally getting a change to who could pick challenges. It has helped a lot, even though most of us still think anyone should be able to start a half hour challenge. The current set up is way better than the previous one.
