    Fields give crops ... crops make feed for stables ... stables give dung ... dung makes ferts for orchards ... orchards give leaves ... leaves give humus for fields

    Anything out of ratio to a big extent will affect this cycle.

    I never keep chicks, goats and donkeys ... this saves me the time to make any feed for all 3 in Mills and Labs.
    Chicks eggs gets replaced by Ducks
    Goats milk replaced by cow
    Donkey dung replaced by ducks and cows dung.

    Having lots of co-op apple orchards and cows on MF, almonds and ducks on GF is the way i like it.
    Gives huge dollars.
    Ok. I play in a similar way to that as well but more for events than for farm dollars.

    @Exxy (INT1)  without the need to have gold medal, it would become more competitive as players would not have to 'Take it easy" therefore more willing to compete.  Then player would be fighting to get the silver or bronze medal rather then sitting it out.
    But the player would mainly be playing that way to get a larger amount of diamonds right? So they will still presumably get some gold medals along the way so it wouldn't really affect their strategy from what I understand?



    Regarding whether the ranking prizes should be given out for any type of medal, I guess it can be a subjective topic. Since it is a ranking prize and you have to rank first within your group once to get a gold medal, it appears to be reasonable to expect a player to get a gold medal once in order to be able to collect the diamond ranking reward (which would be a minimum of 4,000 diamonds, sometimes even more.)

    If the players that get similar scores are put together than I presume that a player without gold medals will get easier and easier groups until they get one so I don't think it should be too much of a problem. But that is just my opinion about it.

    I think GG should give 1 million gold upon log in!

    The problem is a player who finishes a season with all silver and bronze medals probably had to work very hard all the way through to get them.  They would have more points and done more work than a player who did nothing all season, came on the last day, did enough to get 1 gold ( which very little would be needed) and their rewards for the whole season is more that the player who worked hard for the whole 42 days.

    @ninjahuman (AU1)   I have had a season where I tried hard all the way, got silver and bronze every event, got less diamonds that I do now because I sit out an event at the start.  The problem with this is, it is good for me but what about the others that got silver and bronze the 1st time, now they are against my farm and they miss out again.  3rd round these same players who are trying their best, now hit again some of the stronger players that beat them first round but came down low in 2nd round, they lose again.  4th round repeat and rinse.  So these players who are trying hard all the time and get silver and bronze medals, get no final ranking rewards even tho they have done so much more work.  This is exactly what happens, this is why we end up with unbalanced fields.  Taking away the stipulation of gold medal for ranking reward should actually solve the problem of unbalanced fields after the 1st few events


    BTW I don't post what the problem I have, I see what is happening to others as I don't just think about me and my playing experience.  I find a way around the problem , but problem with this is, the way around usually hurts the lower level players.

  • I couldn't agree more, I don't want to sit out an event either, not good for the rest of my co op.

    I dont understand your logic

    Ive tried the go all-out in every event  and its just a plain bad strategy , as at one point you will keep being matched with the best 9 or best 18 players and it will be extremely difficult to do good

    So  no matter what , majority of players , 99% of them is bound to obtain a few stone/wooden medals

    So why not be wise, and position those medals at place, where it will yield you long-term benefits for the whole FL

    But thats just me , Using STRATEGY :)

    Not being forced to do anything , And honestly all my divisions are fairly well balanced , i get stone/wooden medals in HW events , and generally all gold/silver in CC/Fairs

    Right now, I expect to try a little harder on the last 3 events to work a push up in rankings =)

    I was around #200 ish for the whole event, i expect to finish near top 20 :) ( With use of strategy )



    Thats my medal overview so far , Nothing that gamebreaking :o

    lol what? ur funny

    Ill never get matched with someone without a gold medal =)

     I'll have to check for giggles :)

    But Id bet a few bucks on that :D

    It would be interesting to know what is the player with the highest title without having a gold medal yet

    Since, I like to work thoroughly on data and what im talking about

    I will personally list the amount of gold medals for every player in my next division ( Nothing is better than Data )

    <3 Stay tuned

    Neither do I.......sitting out is just a cop out! You have 42 days to get 1 gold medal.....just 1. A few glass or lower medals when up against the big players groups you with weaker groups as the competition progresses. Whats next, jumping from coop to coop just to get a reward you want then going back to your original one after its over? Oh wait that already happens......its not strategy, its just sad.......my two cents worth  :p

    I don't really think that would happen because the one player would have received more diamonds from hard work rewards than the other.

    I see. It may not solve it because some players would not always play their best in an event for other reasons like not being available to play as much.

    One thing to remember is that this is a ranking prize, not a hard work reward. I'm happy for the other players if a gold medal is not compulsory for the ranking anymore, but I can also see the logic in why it was set up that way to try to encourage players to get gold medals and compete for the top ranking spot in their group.

  • yes the logic was to try make us spend more gold to get the gold medals, but in practice to opposite happened, instead of spending more gold we just take it easy and with enough taking it easy then the gold buyers need to spend LESS to get the gold medal.  Remove the need to have a gold medal and others may push harder all the time to fight for the silver and bronze.

    Just spun the Xmas WoF 8 times plus the bonus spin. I won several mystery boxes of varying colors and none of them turned up in my inventory.

    No, it's not time yet. Historically it only shows up a few days before Christmas.

    Success Team is an active, friendly co-op looking for daily adult players. Click here if interested or apply in game today! :)
  • I DO hope so !
    If they want my gold, that's where I spend it. (I love to decorate.)
  • Satan's workshop was suppose to be repaired with last update, so we should see it soon

  • I want the temp farm to show up soon. Please.

    I'd like the Christmas WoF to work properly.  I have santa hat tokens, but when i click for it to spin, nothing happens and the button turns gray.  I left and went back in and it did the same time.  Tried a third time and same thing.

    Edit to add - Its working now and the HWE pps gauge/timer near the harvested items is back too.  I know why they were acting up or missing.  Every time they advertise the new event or ads on the main page after logging in, things go haywire.  I got disconnected by the game.... are they deliberately disconnecting people to force them to have to re log in so that they force them to see the new event on the main page and any new ads they are inundating us with?  I have noticed that I get disconnected from the server, then when I log in there is a new event.

    Edit again - the pps gauge timer clock that usually shows up next to the item you are harvesting, showing your time after each harvest is missing again . You have go hover over the silo to see the time.

  • Are you kidding? I don't need a bunch of trees on the gourmet farm. I'll have millions of runes leftover to use at a later run of a farm. This is not worth playing for because I have all the trees I need there. Three and I am constantly selling the peaches and almonds. Contracts don't really ask for them anymore so why add to them? I'd much rather get more ducks or even cow sheds but I don't need trees. What a joke for a festive farm.


  • Is Santa's Workshop making its way at any point before Christmas??? 


  • Where is the Santa's Workshop???

    If your office will be closed for 12 days, Dec 21st - Jan 1 please releace the event now.
