since another "Big Farm Hack" appeared on my radar, I figured I should warn you in time.
These so-called "Hacks" for Browsergames are around for quite some time now. They promise free gold, levels and whatnot, when you just download them, let them log into your account and enjoy the day.
Now here's the kicker: They actually do nothing at all, but harm your computer. Let me explain a few points.
They can't change what's on our server. All a 'hack' will do is (if even that) change some numbers on your client software, directly in your browser. If it shows more money or gold to you, it's not really there. It just changes what you are shown. You still have that 2000 gold, even if your game shows you now have 3 Million. Once you spend more than your initial 2000, you will still get the "not enough gold" message. You simply won't have the gold, money or XP the hack promises you.
They just want to get your account data. You won't find a 'hack' that works without logging into your account through the program, and that's for a reason: All that it wants is your account data. As soon as you enter your username and password, it will send both off to a database on a hacking server, where basically everyone can access your secret password and do all kinds of stuff with it. And that's the harmless option. The other one would be..
They're possibly trojans. A trojan virus works exactly like its namesake, the famous historical wooden horse. It's disguised as a useful program, but in reality it's a virus, malware, sometimes even software that enables another person or group to completely overtake your PC, with all your data on it. With a bit of bad luck, you're giving your whole expensive PC away for just a bit more gold in a browser game.
They might get you banned. Even if it doesn't work, we of course can't allow the use of hacks, cheats etc in the game. So if we notice you using a hack, your account is in immediate danger of getting temporarily or permanently banned. Really, it's not worth it.
Alright, there's that Now of course, if you still want to take that risk, I can't stop you. But I really, really recommend not to, because the only person harmed will be yourself.

For the last two days in the coop championship, I experienced that some people were able to do a mission on collecting feed´s from the mill, that very very far exeeded the amounts of feed that any mill would ever be able to produce, no matter how upgraded or how much gold is used in the process. I expect BF to look into this, and stop this kind of cheeting

Library books or no , how can someone make so much feed? Even with maxed mill and boosters this is a bit too much? Im bad at math and do not have maxed boosters , so i dont know how much extra feed they give, and could be wrong of course but.....can a human click so many times for 30 mins to speed the mill and collect ?(Also to buy crops and sell exceeded feed,this also takes time )is it physically possible?! GGS really have to check this thing!

Two things here, all games, they are zero exception to this game unless the game is quite obscure, all games are hacked or hackable. This game is no exception and you may understand why so many people have horses 100+ which is insane by any standard, possible, yes, but better explained with people using hacks or credit card fraud to get the gold needed to up a horse to those levels.Also, lots of coops have insane levels... again another demonstration of how dubious all of this is. d mindless repeat clicks but got caught ah! But, in my entire history of playing online games, I've never cheated beside that one because I firmly believe that cheating cuts from the fun.
