GGS..... Please Most of us do not want ever but ever see another Coop Challenge or Coop Silo Event...
Mumble grumble ((((((
With all the boring challenges my light is more white than green..
Why not have each one in rotation on a weekly basis? So, week 1 CHWE, week 2 FHWE, week 3 Co-op challenges, week 4 Goldfish rescue or pig rescue etc. The same with the individual theme events, week 1 Asia, week 2 Culinary, week 3 UFO, week 4 Wedding planner (at a more realistic level please!). That way we would have a maximum of two events at any one time - plus the island farm - which is more than enough. It would make the events actually feel like events and not just another part of the daily game.
Also when there is one 'big' event stop the others - the big events could be special times of the year, Christmas, Chinese New Year, July 4th, a month long Summer Sun event, I dunno - there are so many possibilities.
Enough of my ramblings - but I guess you know what I mean.
For the coop champ, yes, please, less. Those one cannot ignore as they please as it is a joint coop decision and it has penalties for not participating even once... which is what makes it dreadful that is so often. If there weren't leagues, coops could ignore it as many times they pleased without major penalties (except for the trees/trophies that expire).

No option to choose, each time it comes up as level 3.
Oh well, guess she'll just need to deal with it.
The 4 day turnaround is way to much, throw in the useless CHWE it's not worth the pain, it's time for a rest
Wasn't there JUST a pole out asking how often this should run? When I voted it was well over 90% in favor of ONCE A MONTH. Then the poll vanished. I would assume because more than enough people said ONCE PER MONTH is plenty.
But here it is again?
It's not much of a "championship" if it's running virtually non stop. IT gets boring real fast.
Instead of looking forward to an event, it's become more of a chore.
And once again GoodGame does NOT seem to give a hoot what the players think. Even when THEY ask.
But "events" here now are non stop. As soon as one ends another starts. And when it's a coop event, one where everyone needs to pitch in or the whole team suffers, that puts pressure on where there never was before.
I asked my coop and overwhelmingly they agreed we can just take it back a notch. No one bothers with the village challenges now. NO one cares about the high pressure all or nothing coop events. Laid back, play to have fun, that's enough.
But I'm in two other coops that are very active and I feel the pressure to be sure to log in, complete missions, work work work. I HATE the direction this game has gone. I like the people in those coops but am tempted to just go solo and not worry about letting anyone down.
GG seems to think everyone playing has no life. Sit here and click this silly game all day every day. Or spend money…. NOT going to happen from me.
And the higher I level up, the more impossible events get to ever complete.
Once again that gourmet farm one is on, and it's clear that once again I wont' even find HALF the carrots it's asking for. I'll never get through that one. OR the flower farm one they started. But at least my not playing them doesn't pull everyone else down.
So tonight, I hoped to harvest, replant and leave. Well I suppose I still could, not help my team? Seems a bad way to play.
I liked it better when we just worked our own farms in our own good time.
2. it was closed because the overwhelming majority did vote for 1x per month, the information was there for them, there would be no point in leaving it open for even more people to vote for 1x per month when over 90% of the votes were already there.
3. there has not been enough time to act on the poll regardless of whether or not they even plan to.
again it was a player suggestion not requested by developers and they may not listen to it at all.
I voted 1x per month, I'm not holding my breathe.
Hate coops but missing out on the benefits? Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way. No donations or group participation required.
Reducing the frequency of the Coop Championships, will reduce income. I'm not expecting to see any change until some other event is introduce which will make up for the short fall.
My understanding is that farming communities have an annual event and help each other. In this "farming game" putting player against player in events like this seems more like the Hunger games.
There is a long way I image - and at least I - dont know how it looks like on the other servers, if they are just as fed up with them as we are. No mention about it. I dont think that they listen too much to what 1 forum says (even we do cover a few servers).
And then it most likely have to be taken up to some meetings I could image, to discuss, how to calm us down with the unhappiness. And then again - how does it look like on the other forums?
So its a long term thing to get it less.
Well… Here's the problem with their thinking. It's burning people out. Instead of making money, they are chasing players off.
Events, aren't events if they are run almost non stop. I asked my UK coop after the whole christmas mess if we would all want to just ignore any and all of these coop vs coop high pressure events. And got back an overwhelming YES. So we are very laid back, easy going… probably never will "win" a top spot but that's ok. We plug along doing our coop projects, and when the CC rolls around, there are prizes for everyone any time someone does a mission. But no pressure to perform.
Well the other two coops I'm in are both contenders. Both have won the gold coop trees, and we do get a LOT of prizes. Now the US coop is big. Even if everyone doesn't put in time that coop will have no problem doing well. And the leader is fantastic about not putting pressure on anyone.
The international coop is also a top contender. Little more pressure, they have sent out notes that everyone needs to…… what ever. But this week the leader sent out a note asking if someone wants to take over. She is burned out with the non stop events. I sure don't want the spot. I don't know what will happen with that coop. I don't even want to be deputy because I MIGHT end up as leader. (It's happened before.)
I just shot her a note this morning saying what I did on the UK coop. That we could all vote and decide within our coop to just take a break. Come back fresh and pick up where ever we are left off at. We'll see how that goes.
GG it's just too much. At least with individual events I can just choose to ignore what I don't like and it doesn't hurt anyone. (The flower and gourmet farm events, I don't stand a chance of ever finishing so not bothering anymore. Two tries, got to the same point, dead end. = no fun.
Now the island is back. I only play oh, one in about 4 temp farms, and only enough to stock up some seeds. Again ever getting through it is impossible so why waste all my farm dollars trying. And it's a sure bet now the architect will show up.
Maybe there are enough players who spend spend spend non stop…. Has to be enough to keep the game funded I suppose. So to the crazies out there with absolutely no life other than this click fest, more power to ya. I just like my coffee clickage, and again before bed. More than enough for me. Not enough to finish these events anymore…. so be it. Got more decor than I can use anyway.
TOO CLOSE TOGETHER (if not running AT THE SAME TIME.)
TOO MANY COMPLICATED EVENTS!
(I never did understand the asia event. WAY too complicated. The world wide one was another. I'd look at the thing in the parking lot and just scratch my head. IGNORE.)
WHY does GG keep sending out surveys THEN IGNORE THE RESULTS???????
WHY doesn't GG actually READ their own forum board? I understand now that the pole to make CC once a month, (at 90% when I got a chance to vote) wasn't even started by GG. Well someone started it, and a LOT of people voted for once a month (or less.) And yet here it is again???? We just finished one.
NON STOP does NOT equal EVENT. An EVENT is a rare thing…. you know…
it's why it's called AN EVENT!
Events here have become chores. One of my coops, (not mine, I'm just in it) has a leader who is burnt out now. Looking to leave. It's tough to be a leader in any group but when the pressure is on ALL THE TIME it leads to people getting burnt out, bored, fed up, and leaving. I walked away when GG stupidly booted people for taking advantage of a bug on their end. I sent notes to all three coops I was taking a break from this.
Didn't miss it one bit.
Thing is, I have always enjoyed this game. Bugs and all. I use to be able to finish an event, even get the highest prizes. NOTHING is possible anymore. Not the temp islands, certainly not the new gourmet or flower farm ones. Tried twice now, forget it. It's beyond ever reaching.
The whole idea of coop vs coop is really bad. Only the gold users have a chance there. Gets way too pushy especially when these run NON STOP!
GG please listen to us. Pick an event, do ONE… once a month. It would really be an event then. Not a rerun.
If this happens again can you try to get a screen shot and send it to one of us mods? It really helps to beable to take these back to the team.

Okay, back off my soap box, grabbing a glass of wine and back to farming. Cheers Farmers!

It seems to me that the polls should be started in other communities asking for them rather than stifled. It is still, after all, unofficial, just a suggestion by the players.
When it wS to be once a month, I felt (and quite many other playors too) that it was too often. If I got it right in other forums were different opinions and there playors wanted it even more often.
It is great if GGS is now gathering opinion from all forums about playors preference about frequency and lenght about CC.
I hope to get my and my coop interest to CC back again, that means that once in one or two months
Lenght of 4 days is ok, but shorter is better.
