    The general term booster does not tell me what is included and what not.
    Are all boosters from the garage being removed from the tab "production farm machines" ?
    And what about the rakes and so on,from the inventory tab "pranks and gifts" ? Are they included in the change?

    I understand the (fishing) XP boosters; the production and time boosters (that are rewards for some events) ; horse boosters (training) are scarce ; village happiness..

    But what are orchard / meadow / garden / field boosters?
    Is that rakes? Or super humus and super fertilizer? Or the rustic fields (and so on) from the trade center??

    Please give a bit more detail .

    Booster for the game usally means anything that boosts production gor a Curtin time. So I would doubt it includs gifts/pranks. The garden are the ones you can get from the lucky coin trader amd orchard is from like a regular mystery box. So my question is will the golden trader still work with the new type when they come out.same with the mysteryboxes. Also does this affect the CC or CHW boosters or VF? Because I am guessing it has to do with any booster that shows a time on your screen. So if that is true the does it affect the tractor too?

    I am thinking the monuments we won in the master league will be worthless also except to receive a few seaweed.  If this is true they might as well go because they are taking up space on the farm. Shame when we worked hard to earn them. Please let us know if this is correct!

    You don't need to open mystery boxes at all. The Boosters in there will be replaced with a new Booster. For players, there won't be much difference.

    @CookieFarmer9 (US1)

    Only the Boosters listed in the announcement will be affected

    You just know the changes are to benefit ggs not the player, i would love to know how this company gets away with taking things from players that they have used real money to purchase.
    Easy answer - these kind of game & gamecompanies are not regulatede in EU Law, so they are able to run games, with very low ROI, just like the good old online Casinos before regulation happened.
    Thats why their stocks keeps raising, and the company has xxxmillion euro turnover every year.

    The current WWC still gives a shorter production time reward. It ends sept 3rd. What about that reward?

    Wow. GGS has done it again. Another change which makes playing the game less fun. Not to mention investing real money less appealing. I have over 2000 XP booster hours. Like the others that have posted, we all have worked hard to get the boosters. There should be some serious compensation forthcoming.

    Does this mean that any booster in an unopened mystery box will be replaced with a new version of booster but equivalent booster reward? (such as a double XP will still give double XP but with the new type of booster? and the mystery box rewards that give XP for harvesting stables & orchards, will those just be a new version of the booster but still give the same # of XP per harvest as before?)

    And is this the same for appearance boosters for fields? If we have unused ones, will they be replaced with the new version of boosters (for eg; if I have 20 snowbound booster giving 30%+ ruties for 30 min, will I get 20 of the new boosters & will they also give 30% for 30 min?)

    You said there won't be "much" difference, but that means there could be some. If any of these will change, I might choose to open all my mystery boxes &/or use up all field boosters before the change.

    Thank you for your time looking into this for us!

    Does it mean that the XP boosters we have , I've for 1335 hrs, will be removed?
    And boosters can't be kept for longer durations now?

    I think it would offer the new boosters (personal comment).

    Yes, I think the boosters inside unopened mystery boxes will turn into new ones!

    Appearance boosters are untouched.

    Field boosters are untouched since they are not mentioned in the OA.

    @BugsBunny
    It would be quite unfair if those players that are commenting they have these super long XP boosters to get the same compensation as everyone else. Even though I am not currently one of them, I would be more pleased with GGS to hear they are compensating appropriately. By the time I read thie OA, there is less than 120 hours until Sept 1st, and all we have is "early Sept". I feel bad for them

    Most of the players only have the exp booster, however, I will pass this feedback on  :)


    @Moderators

    I did'nt see the Orchard XP being mentionned in the list? :)

    Thanks for the information, I'll get this checked ;)

    Yes, they will be removed and you will be compensated for them (we will let you know about the compensations soon!)

    I'm not sure about the booster durations, I'll get back to you after clarification.

    Bugs Bunny
      
     

      
  • I'm not feeling delited.  I have over 800,000 xp hrs....no way I can use those up.  I worked hard & paid good money to get those hours.... are you going to drop some gold on us in the compensation packet too or compensate us according to how many xp hrs we have plus how many boosters we have in our inventory?

    The fun & excitement of the CC & VF have already been taken from myself & a lot of the players in my coop with the constant back to back running of....now this.  I do love this game and I could prob be happy just a farmin away without using any gold or boosters.  :)
