    I remember seeing a spreadsheet or chart of some sort that showed what the hours would be when you collect certain items in the HWE. Does anyone know where I can find that?

    Thanks

  • Hey...the hard worker event would be the fish hwe  this time....?? Why did the change it?

  • Why are there still bonuses for the WCC in the HWE when the points given are moot? Is it possible to actually give us bonuses that are, at least the minimum, useful?

    What are the "Farm Points Bonuses" that I got in the HWE?  Where are they stored or used for?

  • They were points used for the Worldwide Championship event from last month. I do not think that they have any value now.

    Less and less attention given this game in recent weeks.  That should tell us something, don't you think?

    I guess their whole spiel in their press release about paying more attention to their players was just a load of cow dung.  It certainly tells me they are not paying attention to the game or their players.  

    Breakdown on the Lab
    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days
    25,264.27 (days) ÷ 365 (days in a year) = 69.22 years to fully upgrade the Lab
    That's if you use the daily earnings to upgrade the Lab ONLY, no spending on other upgrades, islands, boosters, or anything else.

    They are no longer even taking care of the basics.  Putting the title on "ignore."

    Thank you Rowdy for reminding us that was just an added reward for the WWC and the bugs that could creep in if changed.  I would much rather have them working on the DSF and market.  Hopefully that is what they are doing.

    For me, personally, if I had to choose between having an update or hot fix (with the associated down-time in the game and the potential for bugs slipping in) to add and take away unimportant stuff every time the HWE comes around, I'd prefer to just wave at the WWC reward as it flies by and get on with keeping George happy.

    Added to which, if I had to choose between the developers spending their time fixing code to add and remove said (now useless) WWC reward, or, on the other hand, focussing their time and attention on getting the deep sea feature balanced and coded, etc ...  well, that's a no-brainer   :D
    I would rather have the WHOLE game work right. Even if it meant less events now and again so everything is UP TO DATE and proper.

    The deep sea fish "IF  it was not suppose to have direct sales to begin with but a market instead" should never have been put into the game in the first place UNTIL it was the way it was complete and fully functioning. 

    No excuse for having to take time away from other parts of the game to fix something that should not have been introduced broken to start with.

    Agree.  I would like to see them fix a lot of the old stuff they let "fly" and quit releasing so many bugs, while they are at it.

    has my farm level changed that much or has the regular HWE been reworked and not for the better?

    my list so far:
    corn
    wildflowers
    milk   -- sped by in slightly over 1.5 hours - before this time i used to look for this or apples and hope it was late night because it would be my overnighter
    apples  -- 6 hours
    jasmine
    dani
    barley
    corn
    jasmine

    the latter, I dunno what's going on but I have no chance at getting rank 50 or less anymore.... let alone it seems the 1.2 million for the GML's, the timer doesn't run for any meaningful amount of time for me for decent points/sec

    I have also observed the same. It seems that the products and the amounts might be the same than those for the new coop HWE, at least for the couple of products I have checked. Moreover, I have seen rutabaga, lambs lettuce and alfalfa which we didn't have pre coop HWE if I remember correctly.

    It has been well nerfed :'(  To be fair , it was expected and the old HWE dated back to when all farms were much smaller, and when that came in was probably very difficult . New challenge to work up to .

    It has been changed. A friend of mine gave me a spreadsheet with the required quantities of goods to reach each points per second level. I had used this in the past to plan for the event. Before the event started I planted enough corn for 8 points per second. Or so I thought. I got 5. Most, if not everything, now require higher quantities. Plus they added new crops. Now I don't have enough fields to prepare ahead of time with the number of crops & the quantities needed. You can only do really well at this event with heavy seaweed & gold use.

    This used to be my favorite event. Not anymore.

    i know they added new crops but i only got 2 each time this ran before for the entire event  and not back to back dandies and barley 

    yeah i liked this too oh well not going to get the gold or seaweed out of me even most SS are used up so...

  • Plus they have changed the levelsystem again so now 65 level players are playing against levels up to 999.... No need to say this probably, but there is absolutely no point at all for me being in this event with players at level 350. I can´t even get the gauge up above 2 points a second with the new settings... I think I might spend my time on more valuable things then this game from now on :) To many bugs and to much BS....
    I think im with u on that seems like GGS is pushing the players away on purpose. There is less and less to enjoy in this game now.

    ive just replied to the thread that thanked GGS for the old hw back

    which of course it isn't its the coop hw, just done solo without the coop hw benefits but with the coop hw numbers and (useless) addtional items (as you've pointed out), ie the worst of both worlds

    very poor form from ggs
