Why such high amounts required

I have had a few co-op members and some friends asking about the required amounts for santa, one of the items is the aleo vera gel, one player needs over 1600 of it, their distillary makes 100 every 5 hours ( mine is every 8 hrs) . As the event is only for 4 days that means 4 x 5 hour harvest are required per day.. do GGS think we live on the farm 24 / 7, I know they expect us to use Gold to speed things, but it is just getting to the point where their greed is unaceptable. Maybe the usual suspects will pop on and claim they could get the required amount while having breakfast, but the facts are there 1,620 gel, 100 gel per harvest, harvest time 5 hrs , days of event 4 days

    i know this is not what you want to hear and i agree the amounts are way to high but rember if you have the extra money you can buy most things at a loss except like feed which is what i got stuck with so you have to decide if buying the items to donate it is worth it or not

  • I think that the amounts are too high as well...
  • our co op with 8 members in it ATM just got to stage 3, then we find we have been given ridiculous total of pig feed to donate.  8 members 70k pig feed to donate impossible, guess we will not be getting any village happiness form this event.  Is this a bug or is this event anti small co ops

    @Byron Longford (AU1)  I was wondering the same thing.  When Southern was posting amounts from Chapter 1, I saw that she is in a 30 person coop, mine has 12, yet our quantities were at or higher than hers.  We didn't even attempt to do the 91,051 Bonito which would be 7587 a piece, fish much?  Even sending Oleg off in the boat, 220-384 if it's the larger boats, fishing yourself till you have to wait for the timer, setting Oleg to fishing just for Bonito overnight, and you can't do it, without gold.  Now I'm told that this same quest will come up again in Chapter 3 because we didn't complete it in Chapter 2, yippee, just thrilled to hear that...NOT!

    Many thanks to farmerjohn 22 for this creation  :)
  • If anything GGS should be trying to help the small co ops not disadvantaging them.  What they are saying by this is we do not want small co ops, close your little co op and go join a large 1.  Instead of trying to get larger farms to go help the smaller co ops, which would make more sense.

    And the fact is, all of those large coops were once just like us :O)  I propose they scale it down by the number of members in the coop, instead of all of us having to come up with the same amounts, which appears to be the case from those that have posted here in the forum.

  • All I know, is no use even thinking about doing any more of Satan's wish list

    Well we have to get158,240 pig feed and it is not going to happen this chapter maybe before the event ends but they took so much from stock to fill the wish lists and then get this disappointing so much for happy fun  not so much, still waiting to see how this happiness pans out in the end.

    Angie you will move on to chap 3 but the apples will still be there to donate to once everyone has completed their lists and that is a totally insane number they obviously want us to fail what else is there to think
  • @angie50 (GB1)  how many members you have currently in your co op?
  • angie50 (GB1)angie50 (GB1) GB1 Posts: 223
    34 some are low level, we av decided to ignore it and sign more players and consontrate on phase 1 and 2 , at least the happiness will go up a bit lol

    happiness is better on weekly events deco as well.  Good luck with that
  • angie50 (GB1)angie50 (GB1) GB1 Posts: 223
    byron cant find the xmas event rules, do u know if i let a player go who hasnt started phase1 , will that affect the happiness ?

    you will drop out of phase 3 and then yes happiness will go up when they do their phase 1 or when you help them.  Another way the small co ops are discriminated against.  it should be if all members in your co op complete phase 1 all co ops should get the same HP, no matter if you have 2 members or 90 members all should be 50 HP.  As it is small co ops only get rubbish level deco, where as large co op get a lot better deco

    To be honest your best bet is to close your co op doors for the rest of this event. I know not ideal but much safer and easier on the members there now.
    If you are to bring in a new member, the best time is right at the start of the new chapter.

    @Data King (US1) angie's co op still had 2 days (now down to 1) to fill who ever starts as there is no way for them, like our co op to ever fill 1 co op quest. so they may as well increase their happiness on the deco.


    Not what I would do as deco will never get to good level.  Our co op is just totally forgetting about this event.  Waste of time for small co ops, as I said it would be when it started.

    thankyou data king and byron , much appreciated :)))))

    @angie50 (GB1) Warning we just took new player in and they are at 0%, and even though they are at 0% we have dropped out of phase 3 but are also unable to add to their list.

    I hope they come on before ends tomorrow or we will have to boot them again.

    ANOTHER BUG!!!!!  AHHHHHH!!!!

    I agree. It would make more sense.Our coop only has 3 members and one is a school teacher so she doesn't have time to play the game much. If amounts are really high next chapter I will not even try to finish it.

    Hi byron, yeah just signed 2, one started it and the other went off line, so had to leave a message.
