    It is unfortunate for maybe (?) most, but there are people who do not have family or friends to spend Christmas with so for those maybe (?) few/several playing BF the game won´t be all vacant or give them the feel of being left behind/ignored. Plus the fact that maybe (?) several do not celebrate Christmas since their religion is another. Lets not forget that while sitting in our little bubble :wink:

    Cheers :smile:
    i was raised in the day and age of 1. on sundays ALL businesses closed and 2. ALL businesses closed on holidays -- nobody complained -- it has come down to greed today -- and, it promotes bad behavior (i.e. black friday) where adults beat up adults, etc. -- trust me i'm not living in my own little bubble -- i've seen a lot of changes in my life -- but, that's why i run my coop like i do -- we break for the holidays 
    Sorry, I fail to see how your reply adresses what I wrote. :(

    I thought it was a very good suggestion.  :)

    The FHW is shortened again on purpose to keep people from earning the gold license.  No accident.

    Hey Guys,

    I don`t have a clue what the reasoning is behind all the events, they don't tell us such things, but one possibility might be that they have filled every possible space with an event BECAUSE its the holidays, so if you miss one CC there is always another one coming along etc & always some event to play around with, no matter when you have time to farm. We do agree with you all about the shorter FHWE (again) and as it says on the calendar thread, an extension is being discussed, just don't get your hopes up, in case they say no.  Personally I do like that long Santa's workshop, plenty of time to get some nice decos, so its not all bad :)

    Next FHWE also shortened? :(
    Of course. We wouldn't  want anyone to reach the GML , now do we?

    @WascallyWabbit : thanks for asking to extend the event (to normal length)

    At least this is just a guess on your part as there is nothing official here in this forum or the DE forum... Hopefully no one will take this seriously... it is not official!

    Fun to see what your concept of the calendar might be!  :D  
    @JVD (US1)
    I was just following the way GGS seems to be thinking. No GML to be won anymore, more and more events simultaneously, more and longer CC's for we asked less.

    Our co-op has been discussing the short FHWE in our coop

    All agree it is not worth doing. By coiniidence something might get added to the funnel but no effort will be made

    If this is followed by other coops GGS will come to the concluson we don't like the FHWE and have it less often or even get rid of it completely.

    I understand the point you are making Summer - but the game would still be running over the festivities - nobody is suggesting taking it down totally - just that they take into account the people that do have friends and families that do celebrate Christmas and not run events that require the whole co-op to participate during this time.

    You made me double check thinking ops have I quoted the wrong post.....  :wink: *laughs* But that comment of mine was adressed to seekinghighest (US1) and not you :smile: 

    You are right, if Support takes free from the game and lets it run on it´s own. hmmm That wasn´t in my mind at all, would be unheard of by a reasponsible company tbh.

    Cheers :smile:

    Can we get a start time on the HW.......It appears to overlap with the CC?

    Please, pretty please think seriously to remove CC which is scheduled to Christmas. We players have say now several times that we do not want to compete all the time and please leave us at least that Christmas to spend with our family and friends. There is already 2 CC without it during December and it is more than plenty for all of us.

    Very well said Kimmiecat (NL1) :smile:

    At our co-op we too play relaxed and leave trying to win the compititions to those who just, for different reasons, can´t ignore them. Have to play them. Every single one of them. This game is what one makes of it. Fun down to stressful. We prefer fun :smile:

    Cheers

    It's just another slap in the face to Aussies , we lose another 12 hours  of a 3 day event because of our location.

     My farm is on the GB1 server however I too am located Downunder and often miss out many hours or even the first/last day of an event altogether... I feel your frustration @vbillyboy55.  
    @vbillyboy55 (AU1)  @Michiru (GB1)  You do not "lose" any time on an event based on your timezone, if the event is full days long, the FHWE was 2 days (-30 mins), so everyone is going to get 2 days, the only difference is that for some people it will start & end when they are going to bed & for others when they are at work etc - If you spend (for example) 4 hours on BF every evening, those 4 hours are still going to come around twice in a 2 day event.
    Can we get a start time on the HW.......It appears to overlap with the CC?
    The thing is, I think they have just shot themselves in the foot to be honest.  The events now overlap in an attempt to make us part with more of our cash. 
    @gavinfarms (US1) @AmazingMurphy (GB1) The days may overlap but I doubt that the events do. If you look at the 1st FHWE it was over 3 days but was only 2 days long. The VF ended at midnight on 4th, then the FHWE started at 10am, which ended at 9.30am on the 6th & the CC started in the afternoon after the update. The same is probably true where it looks like the school ends the day before the CC on the 17th/18th, it could just be a matter of 5 mins not a whole day, if the CC ended at midnight.

    Yes, totally agree with you catsclaw (GB1).

    Thing is that something is better then nothing and expecting GGS to put in individual event(s) during Christmas and at this time .... well, I did not really see that happening so I skipped mentioning it. But I would be happy to be proven wrong :smiley: That they do alter the months scheduel.

    Underlining that none should be narrow minded by forgetting that not all players celebrate occasions the same way or at the same time. To make things clear, I celebrate Christmas with all the trimmings, but that does not excuse me from not remembering those who do not. Nor does it any of us. As you point out catsclaw :smile:

    Cheers :smile:

    This event Co-operative Championship    22/12/2018    27/12/2018 they can go stick it up santa's cloak, quick question is all ggs staff and owners at work all that week ????
    No point in moaning about all the cc events and back to back events because they dont listen, the only solution lays with the player.

    Is the Christmas Wheel of Fortune not coming anytime soon?  It ran many,many times between Thanksgiving and New Year's, last year, and now it is Dec 11, and it still not even here for the first visit.

    I have asked about the Christmas Wheel a number of times now and still waiting for some sort of confirmation it will be coming this year. Its a question they refuse to answer so going on that I get the feeling it won't be appearing this year OR it will appear in a watered down rebalanced form that gives less GML's.....hope im wrong.
