    Another coop challenge starting in less than two days? Is there anyone that wanted it to appear more often?

    I did. :) A bit more fun. :)

    Become skippers you don'tlikers. :)

    PS: We have never struggled with personal insanity in our co-op. We take it easy every time. We do take it for what it is - a game - and enjoy every event that GGS gracefully throws at us. Even if we joyfully skip it. :)

    Carry on, GGS. I'm already looking out for what comes next. The market place has been a bit empty for the last two or three days. :)

    Tend to agree with kamilcom on this one. My coop has a few coop apple and cherry orchards now so I wont sit there obsessing over rankings because frankly the top prizes are not worth it. Play a few missions, earn some extra rewards, its only a stressful event to people that want to finish 1st every single time.

    I want and try to get the best for my coop ofcourse, so I play more than a few missions during the challenge. We absolutely don't try to finish first, we'd be happy if we'd get the trophy for a change.

    I do agree Gwendolen! We play the challenge normally very relaxed, too - no stress. Why should we? It is totally predictable who will win, the trophy is totally out of reach, so we don't even try... But as you said: we'd be happy if we would get the trophy for a change.....

    And for today's challenge we only play a few missions per day - as there is so much else going on right now....

    I'd suggest here that "the best" for co-op doesn't necessarily have to be high ranking or lots of rewards. Best for my co-op is havng fun, being happy, enjoying the game without any stress, ......... regardless of our position in the game or competition. 8)

    the best one used to be Equally United, it beat all the ones I had ever been in and have been in after I left it. But then some of the other members left, no idea if it's still even an active co-op, but it used to be one of the top ranking. :(
  • The coop challenge is not even a challenge!!! The same coop has won every time.....no offense to the winning coop.....but it takes away the challenge. I am not ready for this again. Contrary to what one poster has stated, the free rewards are not free. They take a lot of time & participation.....
      I am beginning to seriously resent those who do not do more than a "mission or two" or even one.  I believe all one has to do is log on to get the rewards.

    There's a little something about the rewards being "free". Someone puts in the effort to gain those rewards for the co-op, and those that don't can't choose to not get them.
    As such, the people who want a break have to just stand the idea they're essentially getting the rewards "for nothing", which for most normal active players doesn't feel very nice at all. There is no opting out by relaxing, as many players do missions outside of challenges too, so it's inevitable some rewards will be gained.
    It's unreasonable to expect the entire co-op to not do a single mission for 5 days... just like it's unreasonable to expect the challenge to stay fun if it comes twice a month.

    For me it's incentive to do missions which is something I normally don't do at all. So I like that they come often. However, if they didn't I could also monitor more closely who contributes and who doesn't - as it stands I can't, because every damn challenge at least 5 people are "on vacation". Hard to keep track of who's really on mission-vacation and who's never contributing, using the challenge frequency as a convenient excuse. :c

  • Unlike some of the players on this thread and many in my coop I enjoy missions and do them also outside of the challenges, however I agree that the prices are outdated.  Having some more valuable prices would incentivize more players to participate in my opinion, and make it more fun for those of us who consistently participate.  Or at least change them/rotate every-so-often so we get positively surprised now and then.

    I agree with Byron - just because GGS brings the Challenge every few weeks, doesn't mean people have to take part in it.  Our co-op has decided to do the Challenge only every couple of months.  We save our resources and build our farms and do the best we can every 2 months.  The rest of the time, individual players can do missions as they choose to, with no pressure from the co-op.  If a particular co-op feels compelled to go full-out on every Challenge, that is a co-op decision, and in no way GGS' fault. To use an analogy, just because I may go to an all-you-can-eat buffet, does not mean I have to eat everything in sight.  I am free to choose, and we are all free to choose what part/s of the game we take part in.  It's called individual (and co-op) responsibility.
  • Mine is showing Apple for 1st and cherry for top 10, but I do agree,  I have 5 cherries orchards in storage.  I could do with 1 more apple.  Prizes do need to be changed.

    You didn't read my post correctly :), I mean when the countdown timer is going before the co-op challenge starts it is showing the Cherry Orchard as 1st Prize mine is showing the Apple Orchard as 1st prize too now that is what my complaint is about.

    It's a bit deceiving for new players if the promotion is showing the wrong prize

    SJW i agree 100% with you.It just be fun every 2 months a 8 days C-C but now we have barely 8 days to recover from that ever returning 5 days C-C. 
    I am very competative and i love to help my lower level coop members with extra rewards.
    But there are 2 things at least to be changed.
    1 The frequency is to short,specialy with the Island,George,s Silo and the other events.
    2 Change the rewards a bit for a change. I have now 17 couzy picknick pande trees that is still have to build.

    Are we talking figuratively or factual here? Do you have actual problems deconstructing? :)
  • @boer bartels (INT1) 

    Let us give GGS a little credit.  Latten DID just ask you a question directly.  And the question actually reflected that your question was heard and understood.   I say understood, cause I myself understood the question as Latten did.    To say "The recycling bin from greta is to small for all my deco,s that i have in the storage" I was thinking the same thing Latten was.

  • @boer bartels (INT1)  I agree with lelkilroy, you repeated a whole bunch of stuff but didn`t answer Latten's question. I have never had any problem clearing my dropbox/storage of unwanted decos using Greta, so I also do not understand what you meant by "The recycling bin from greta is to small for all my deco,s that i have in the storage".




     
  • Same here, what do you mean recycle bin? Only recycle bin I know of is on my pc.....

    OK  i will awnser that question. I don,t have a problem with my storage FULL with all the same deco,s.

    But WHY in the name of everything that is holy ,THEY don,t fix the game properly at GGS.
    Only adding new things to cover up the old problems.

    That is my problem and not only my problem. 
    But as long a big group of players do not tell  in public the critic to the game i will stop bothering the forum with my normal questions

    For the money is spend i may expexd something what is working properly or not??
    That iswhat the people who bought a volkswagen diesel also !!!!!!!.

    Have a nice day and keep on being happy with a game full of bugs wich they won,t resolve by 1 or other reason.
