    Yes, we will see how it goes....since it is going to be located in the village area, does that mean that they will also be requiring edge plant products?

    You know as much about it as we do @TheGymnast99 (US1) this is a new event for everyone :)  My best advice is to keep reading the forum, where there are people who post info about events/new additions to the game.  Good Luck :)

  • I have a few very important questions:

    These "contracts" that we must fill for "individual points for personal rewards and co-op points that benefit the entire co-op" ....

    1. do they also give farm cash?   Or are we looking at another money pit? 

    2. If we do get farm cash ...Are we PAYING for the "individual points for personal rewards and co-op points that benefit the entire co-op" like we do for the water drops and Karma balls or are they true legitimate rewards that would be added to contract as a bonus with the full amount of farm cash for our produce?  
    Hey @Shay1968 (US1) the Oktoberfest contracts will only give points for the event.

    Hey @Shay1968 (US1) the Oktoberfest contracts will only give points for the event.
    I guess GGS is trying to recoop all that cash they dished out with the DSF.  Unfortunately all my profits from DSF are still in inventory and I have less than 200K in farm dollars and so many upgrades needed.  My farm cannot afford an event that just takes away profits.

    Players were very upset about the Santa event (Santa's Wish List) and the fact it was "donations" at first and players were losing out on a ton of cash.  This would be no different.  If players are giving away all their produce/profits, how is their farm supposed to progress?  I can't start production on the windmill or start the production of fertilizer with individual points for personal rewards and co-op points that benefit the entire co-op. 

    Edited to add:  GGS needs to remember, not everyone was able to sell off their fish inventory and not everyone even had a chance to start the DSF because they were still working on Oleg's task which required certain fishing levels to buy certian fishing equipment needed for the tasks. There are still a lot of poor farmers out there.

    @Shay1968 (US1)
    U said good things but olag came from a long time i personaly think its the players they didn't bother to upgrade olag and themselves only this I want to correct and for the poor farmers yes there are so many  :'(

    GGS you have to rethink about lester secret stash. I think it would be more appealing to fulfill the contract if you would include lester's stash with it.

    There were some players that gave up on Oleg because there were problems with the fishing (not being able to reel fish in), also because they did not realize certain tasks were for fishing and they would get buried down at the bottom and considering the left task pain only shows a certain amount of tasks it is VERY easy to over-look. Not everyone has a good understanding of the game, often they just ignore what they don't understand. So I honestly can't blame the players.  Especially since they had NO clue that a Dockyard was going to be released and that it would require all tasks be completed.  I am obsessive and I like fishing, so I finished it, however, it was frustrating at times.  Also at one point a certain task required buying bait that costed gold (which they changed) and many gave up and may have not realized they changed it to a bait available for farm cash if they don't read the forum.

    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.

    It sounds like a lot of time, effort and farm $ for a decoration.  Also agree that this has the markings of Satan's Wish List, and if so our coop is not participating.

    Will this last as long as Oktoberfest actually lasts (which is over two weeks)?

    After a little further thought: I think if the ingredients needed for the recipes are reasonable, and if the cost to produce recipes is not too high,  it could be ok... Just don't want to be donating at the expense of earning on the regular farm. Need to wait and see I guess.
