    I think it should run similarly to Golden week.......the "items" needed to be contributed should drop from our regular farms and we can donate them towards contracts from there. The fact it is located in the village concerns me already and if its a money pit I won't be touching it.

    There's this GGS focus on decorations as rewards.....decorations have value especially to lower level farmers but there's only a certain amount of space for them on our farms. Once those spaces are filled then whats the point of them? I really don;t see players throwing obscene amounts of gold for a decoration...it wouldn't make sense. Surely GGS could come up with better rewards....or is decorations all they have??

  • Hey Guys,

    We just posted a Mod Bulletin with answers to some of your questions about this event.

    It all sounds a bit too confusing for me and my very small coop.  Added to that, there is the fact that none of us participate in the DSF so we would struggle to be able to fill orders in the tent :(

    Is this event something we can opt out of, or are we automatically entered into it.

    2 to 12 hour orders seemed a bit rough for casual players. 30 mins to 8 hours make it even worse. Sorry, but who wants to be bullied by the event? How about 6 to 24 hours contracts? :) But then again a lot will depend on production times in stalls and amounts of both production and orders. Make it too tough, everyone with brains will see another attempt for a gold grab and will avoid it.
  • Will there be different stages for different levels or all of us going to be competiting in one stage??
    Because there are a lot of high level players in the game who buy gold and they can easily use it to skip things and earn points.

    Read the Mod's News Bulletin Spurgiukas - it says that although the whole event takes place in our Village, still players without a coop can play this Oktoberfest Event!

    Well deco's with VH are certainly still needed although I do understand where you are coming from I have no more room and am waiting on fourth farm with a lot of deco's I have in storage

    I'll check it out but I still don't know why they're working on new events & such instead of fixing bugs. I hope this event won't bring new bugs or old bugs back & actually gives you the rewards. We'll see.

    Here's an example of a better reward than a decoration.....how about this? Top 10 finishers get the old deep sea setup for a set period allowing them not only to sell off all their fish in inventory but a chance to continue catching and selling them off for the allotted reward time 

    (Examples  Top rank = 70 hours old deep sea setup, 2-5 = 48 hours, 6-10 = 24 hours). You want gold use, watch it jump with a reward like that.....but instead we get another deco, grrrrreat *yawn*....oh AND we produce these goods and get nothing but points in return so we are basically throwing away even more farm dollars for nothing  (a decoration with village happiness, a village the majority of players don;t care about anyway)

    there will definetly be a gold rush to end up in top10....so not a good idea for 99.99% of the players.

    also i need only 10 seconds to sell of all mine fish in inventory so the time frames are not make a different

    Its just an example of a better reward lol

    GGS can fiddle with the details and extend it to a top 100, top 500 etc etc........99.9% of players won't have a shot at the current deco reward anyway so its negative no matter how you look at it. For me personally i'd prefer DSF to go back to the old setup but its clear that will never happen.

    @bdreish (GB1)  If you just don`t do the contracts, you will in effect be opting out. You could do as few as you want to get some activity rewards or just avoid the fish ones or just not do any. Or you could just poke a sleeping worker every 4 hours for a reward. :)

    Will there be different stages for different levels or all of us going to be competiting in one stage??
    Because there are a lot of high level players in the game who buy gold and they can easily use it to skip things and earn points. 
    @areeba ahmad (INT1) Yes, there will be different brackets.

    Artmaker, I have a test farm as a place I can go for respite and for the joy of spending Lester's gold!  <3o:) This is while I wait for the DSF to get "healed" of sorts.  I choose to remain hopeful.

    Many years ago, I lived in Germany (near Frankfurt) and also enjoyed the real Oktoberfests....there were parades, volksmarches, traditional singing/dancing, fairs for farmers to show the bounty of their harvests....yes there were brots and beer vendors, but those were not the main focus.

    I was born and raised in Wurzburg Germany.  I left there when I was 6 so I do not remember much but I do remember the dancing, lots and lots of dancing. I also still remember the wonderful smell of food from every direction and I remember my parents making a big deal of it. ANd I can remember teenage boys standing on the street corners calling out, "Oktoberfest is coming, Oktoberfest is coming, don't miss out on Oktoberfest". I have enjoyed Oktoberfest in different states throughout the US over past years, some better than others, but it always brings back fond memories and is always a great time. I think I mostly go for the food :)

    Also, I remember almost every adult I would see having a beer in their hand, I think back then it was all about the beer.  lol

    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.

    I lived there in Germany for about 4 yrs in my 20's and have lots of photos and very fond memories.  Oktoberfest just brings it all back fresh in my mind!  :D<3
