Hi, I'm Meela, The Numbers Guy

Hi, everyone!

I'm the designated numbers guy ('game balancer', to be official) in our Big Farm team, so if you ever feel like something on your farm is too expensive, hard to get, or generally going after you, I "might" be the cause... I'm sorry. *puppy eyes*

As such, if you have any questions or ideas about the numbers in the game, feel free to ask me here, I'll do my best to answer them.

Oh, and Jenny also says hi!


All the best,
Meela

    So are you the guy responsible for the overpriced fishes and the dramatic reduction of the fish prices and not be able to sell them any more?

    Balancing is a fine act. Especially those that do high wire work.

    You could fall and die if you get it wrong.

    Big Farm has become high wire work lately.

    Maybe Meela has fallen?

    I hope not :(

    Well, the Meela account has been idle since June, guess we didn't have enough questions.
    Since then it's all been a mess (aprx 6 months)
    I think this is where the problem really lies, we have no number guy anymore... 
    'Lets save the money, and copy what we do on other events - it'll be fine, no one will notice!'

    You guessed wrong...we *did* notice!!

    Remaining mods, are Meela still among us, or someone new?
  • dchen1 (US1)dchen1 (US1) US1 Posts: 993
    Meela, Do you test the game at the level ranges most players are in (1-150)?  Do you build the farm the way most players build it?
    Most players dont buy gold and stop playing when little or no content is added for leveling up.  Game developers need to listen to player feedback to improve the game.

    The best players dont need many decorations and better production buildings, they just need lots of dollars to upgrade the lab and get expansions.  The players around level 70 want the decorations and production buildings and the bonus will help them by a fair amount.  Events need to give the right rewards to the right people so people can have fun with the new features.  

    This doesn't make much sense, I understand what you are saying about the decorations but I do not agree with the special buildings part. Themed buildings become more important when you are becoming more pushed for space, their benefit is not that great when you still have expansions to unlock but they are one of the only ways to improve your farm once all the expansions are unlocked. For a lower level player, it will be far easier to unlock a new expansion then get a themed building and it will give a much better benefit. For example, the tropical cowshed at level 9 only saves 15 squares of space and produces an extra 95 milk per harvest then a level 9 normal cowshed. This will not benefit a lower level player who can still easily improve the quality of housing, decorations and open more expansions, but it is useful for higher level players that have the highest level housing, very high quality decorations and all the expansions unlocked.

    I'm not sure we're playing the same game.  The best players do need these things, always.  Even if the deco isn't as high as they'd like, they can use it for parts to upgrade their existing deco. The higher you go, the more valuable space becomes and "lots of dollars" won't fix that.

    I feel like bumping this thread ...since there's still no official answer to, whether we in fact still have a numberguy or not. ?
    Meelee was presented as such - and I take it, someone took over if he has moved on, as "Tinzen (SKN1)" suggested... 
    Cant find the post saying he moved on either - but that might just be me..

    @Meela
    Where are you at, or who is there instead of you?

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry, but Meela is no longer with the company -  The current team are incredibly busy at the moment, so we don`t have any numbers people in the Treehouse for now, but hopefully some new ones will join soon. :)
