I have no idea, since i bought gold recently
I know, there is publicity/adds 25% of the time , All the time, for every show i watch on TV ;p
what is the minimum offer u have to buy, to get rid of them?
That would cost a person 0.99$/month to completely get rid of them
its not optimal, but it doesnt sound that unrealist or undoable
Maybe the whole scenario is'nt great, as people are used to having an ad-free game
Buying a brand new game ( for most , is average 60$ , going up to 90$ for console games )
Considering those cost , you'd have to play for 5 years, at this rate, to cover the price of a full game
And we get plenty of things developped for the game , at this point , its a matter of what u think its worth
Its really difficult for any business to really offer free products
As far as i know, I dont know a lot of people who would accept working without getting paid
Sadly , it seems to be a theme that is pretty recurrent with gaming companies , that a lot of people doesnt understand, its a business with operation costs , they have to pay for a place for workers to work, they have to pay salaries, they have to pay for hardware for their workers ( computers , servers , equipment ) , they have to pay for rental , heating/energy
if all these things would be free for the company, i'm sure they would offer their products at the lowest price possible
Asking a person to contribute 1$ per month , is far from unreasonable , even if u dont like it
I'm not sure, what other tangible things you can reasonably obtain with 1$/month in 2020
Just to compare, where i live, a chocolate bar per month, would cost me more, than what Big Farm is asking :S
Managing your money, is a part of your life
And just for the reference, in life, i dont know many business who offers their products for free
There is also good chances, that the company runs on a tight budget as well, and need to generate revenues ( its mostly theoric )
Well, you can do some research on the whole Stillfront group
In any case , I'm sure they are reading every comments about it
I can't see why this advert feature was necessary because although other players already had a huge advantage that was increasing over time, I thought those features would be sufficient and would be the other alternative to diminishing the experience of a large proportion of players.
It's one thing to have players purchase the game from the start but it's another thing to force players to frequently contribute towards the game if they don't want to have adverts flying at them all the time after multiple years of ad-free gameplay.
I guess that this also shows that it's not good to invest time into temporary things as circumstances can change within the snap of a finger.
I just hope there is some way they can reconsider this feature without it being as disruptive as it currently is. A huge proportion of their player base is going to be susceptible to leaving the game over this.

Buying gold because I want to is a completely different deal than having to buy gold to make the game playable. For the amount of time spent a few dollars a month makes BigFarm quite affordable entertainment, for me, but that is not an option for many others.
These ads are ruining the game for everyone, golders included. GGS is driving away its existing customers by making the game unplayable for the majority. In my CoOp of over 40 members only 4-5 of us are gold buyers. There are not going to be enough players to make any of the events doable, let alone enjoyable. Having an ad pop up every time one changes farms is just outrageous.
How about putting those ads into a pop-out? The Favorite Offers pop-out seems to be working well, why not do that? Just run the ads when a player first logs in, get them out of the way so we can play without disruption. Have that pop-out get big & flash red every 30 minutes or so, then the player can open it, see the ads and get back to regular gameplay... This would prevent interruptions during missions or missing that last harvest for the HWE. It would certainly help moving around our farms. Just a thought...
before they added the adds not any more.
Note that GGS get's paid to put these ads on to their site for us to see. Most sites will offer their members either to get paid to watch them = PTC or allow them to turn them off after 1 or 2.
I have noticed they did reduce the time for changing farms to 5 seconds - still to many as it happens every time we change farms & or visit another. Feel for those co ops with 50 plus members
With event/s being timed we need to have access at all times to play - not watch an ad so we can play the event/s!
~~~ EDIT @Fawners (US1) i have tried so hard to keep my mouth shut during this debate but, in my opinion, I couldn't agree more! GGS has crossed THE LINE injecting politics into OUR Game. I personally have been warned for posting a barely political cartoon! what's up with that? Thank you letting me rant :-)
