Coop Championship Again this Soon?

This seems like the shortest gap yet between the Coop Championships.  It makes it really hard to keep people motivated to give their best, when it keeps coming so often.

    @MRG1 The co-op challenge hasn't started yet but you should see a countdown timer until the event starts at the top of the screen like in the image below. :)

    Oh thanks Jess...There is just so much clutter on the screen I didn't notice.  Too many bouncing Exclamation !  marks and stuff. Seems like overkill to me, because GGS highlights everything, and now I don't pay much attention.

    Hey farmers, I have read through this discussion, and made notes regarding your feedback about the co-op championships. I will pass these concerns over to our development team during our next meeting. The co-op championships are a very important event for us, and we need to do our best to ensure that ALL participants can enjoy it. Thanks for the honest feedback.

    I agree Gavin. I'm losing interest more and more. I have always been a team player and helped out my co-op in any way I could but I'm really getting sick of the CC coming around so often. I have real life stuff to deal with. I can't stayed glued to the computer doing missions over & over. The only reason this thing comes around so often is because people spend money on it & GGS wants to take advantage of that. Its way too repetitive IMO. If it were to come around less often it would be more exciting and more people would want to get involved. Now its the same ol boring thing. :(

    CoOp challenge is a joke. Only Gold spending coops will ever win.The rest of us have no chance. The only prizes we have a chance at are laughable, mostly collection items or certificates.  And now most of my coop doesn't even play missions any more. Can't really blame them, when three minutes into a wildflower mission your opponent starts with 39,000 wildflowers. What a waste of time and energy.
    Just like last time, I am boycotting this challenge for all the reasons stated above and then some.

    I'm just sick of being a money cow to a greedy corp. based in Germany.  They must be laughing their (you know what) off, seeing us pushing our missions like good little monkeys while they watch the gold purchase meter go up like crazy.

    All that for a worthless trophy... and OH WOW... and orchard that gives a handful more than a regular one!  Gawd... I must be dumb not to participate!!!  :*

    You are missing a lot of real money cost, increased stress level, intense frustration, inequitable operations,and lost enjoyment of the game.

    I think one of the main issues here is the way the players are selected for the missions. If you do a lot of missions every day and your RPs are high, the computer assumes you can compete with the "big dogs" (my term). I am not a big dog. I am only level 79. By the end of the championship, I was competing with people that were well into the 100s. If a player uses special seeds and/or gold to help their placing in the mission, it throws the computer off because it is assuming the player can keep up with higher levels on a regular basis. It isn't really the level a player is, but the number of RPs the player has that dictates what other players will be in the mission.
     I do think that perhaps leveling the challenge in a way that allows small co-ops to compete against small co-ops and large co-ops to compete against large co-ops and creating prizes for both may help a little. The reality is that the gold part won't go away. If a player in a co-op can afford to buy gold and help themselves they will. It won't matter the size of the co-op. Multiply that by several players with large amounts of disposable income and you have a winning co-op. I cannot compete with those players, either, but I don't fault GGS for it. Sometimes it helps to fake them out so they think you have nothing, then surprise them at the end. Many times my competition was putting up 15,000 eggs to my 800. That is not GGS's fault. They just have more coops than I do. If you and your co-op did the best you could, be happy and set goals for next the next round. Hopefully, there will be changes to the set up to make it more balanced somehow.

  • I agree with many of the comments posted here.    The CC comes way to often.     In between islands or 5 to 6 times per year would be just fine with me.    GGS needs to give farmers a chance to build up their inventory or special seeds.

       Isn't a challenge(competition)  supposed to be a reflection of a person's hard work?    Buying RP  does not show that a Farmer worked hard.   It just shows that GGS wants to grab hard earned and saved money from us everyday farmers     Stop selling RP during the challenges    Base it solely on hard work     

    GGS has shown us that they can create lot of changes by adding new things to the farming game.   Then that means they have the ability to make changes to something that they already created.   Stop adding new things to the game and just fix the things that are broken    

    many farmers have taken a lot of time out of their busy lives to post these very good comments written here & else where      You have lots of free advice here GGS on how to improve things    Implement these ideas to make the farms even better     Better farms and happy farmers will actually make money for GGS

    Also shaking my head in disbelief.........................................

    Nothing will change until the mass of people change....meaning more people must opt out of the championship than play. I doubt that will happen because that will mean you can't do even one mission, because that's what puts you in it.  IDK about you, but they have become a habit, why harvest w/o doing one. But I can !

     Also the ratio of new players and gold players to the handful complaining is vast in comparison.  So why would they listen ?   From a business point of view, giving up a few for the many is more profitable, least you be reminded this is a free game. So they really owe us nothing.....This is how to keep it in perspective ! 

    You have to do what you feel is best for you, ie; your co-op.  They give us this platform to voice our opinions, so we keep our voices heard here and let those who read draw their own conclusions.

    I have read many GOOD suggestions here...... one can only hope they decide to incorporate a few !
