    I finally got a clam pool (Approximately 96 clams, 83 oysters, 113 shrimp).  Now of course to fill my fish orders I need 502 oysters, 370 clams, and 302 shrimp.  :p  At this rate it will be eons before I can fill them.  These orders have been sitting on the shelf for many weeks, but I guess that is what happens in the "Herring Straits".  :'(  Do herring or tuna eat clams, oysters or shrimp?  Maybe that is what the matter is!  :*:o:#


    .

    I hear ya Cli !


    Right now 5 - count 'em ==> FIVE - of my Pools are Lobsters !


    You see in my last post it was 4... now it's 5 !


    Are they high...?  WTH...? !!!!

    .

    LOL! Those lobsters must be hungry dudes gobbling up all the other fish pools and reproducing themselves exponentially.  Oh well, I hope things change for you so you too can fill your fish orders.

     Couple questions ...

    This is going to be a global event and not just server event? So we will be competing against every coop in the world and every individual in the world for both coop prizes and individual prizes?
    Can we please have a breakdown on the CHWE levels?    
    @Shay1968 (US1) This will be a server event, not global as in all servers together. ;) There are no divisions for the co-op HWE. Each server will have 1 ranking for all cooperatives on that server.  
    Why will there not be a division? All HWE had divisions; the coop missions have divisions. 
    Without divisions the majority off coops will not have a chance to reach the top 100 .
    This is insane!   NO subdivisions, really!  Once you get the 1.2 mil, why bother doing more since small coop like mine have no chance at all against the bigger well developed coop's.
  • That's my little coop out of the running for any decent placing then, it's so disheartening we work hard and have no chance up against the big guns :(   I usually enjoy H/W too.
    Ditto to that:(

    So much for balance in the game:/
  • I Hope they didn't remove the GML as prizes for the CHE and bring back the gold seeds as prizes please...:)
    @T.O.P (INT1) The GMLs are still there :)  Though the requirements will be higher - In the regular one, due to the bonus points & the Coop one, due to the boosters.
    hey,
           if requirement will be higher than how player like me who get less time to play will get gml to increase gold for farm development........ you should do some something for player like me who are regular but play for 1 or 2 hr only daily

    Me, too!  That's why I kept asking about the hidden pumpkins as I remember winning one or two of them from that.

    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

    Two questions:

    1. Will the option to skip to the next box still be there?

    2. Will there be a system that will prevent us from having box combinations such as alfalfa - wildflowers - wheat?

    Well the co-op hwe sounds good if you have a lot of co-op members I have nine slots in our small co-op, seven of them are filled by close family members, We have four active members who play some everyday during the week, and play a lot more on the weekend, we carry three players who play occasionally or rarely two are younger and the third is well he is what he is... So that means I have two opens slots I can't keep filled, why? because all I seem to get are low entry level players who play for a week or two if I am lucky then disappear with no word, they don't want to communicate???????????  So our little co-op doesn't stand a snowballs' chance in he!! of winning anything, why bother even participating?????

    I'm so glad it's not just the GB server has that going on lol I have the same scenario regarding joiners who seem incapable of speech then don't play, why join a coop I ask myself everyday

    Because 1 of the early side tasks is to join a co-op, and most people don't know or care what that involves, they are simply doing a task and then move on from there.

    @CuddlyFoxes Wascally said the higher level players would get wheat and lambs lettuce.  This is the levels I was referring to.   What is considered "higher level players"?


    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.

    Okay, so we get wheat and lambs lettuce in the HWE, but will it "start" with corn?

    @Shay1968 (US1) Wheat & lamb's lettuce will appear for players level 27+

    @FarmerCli (US1) Yes, the cooperative HWE should start with corn.

    I thought corn was the first crate, the one that get discarded when we click on "Let's get started" and then we get a second crate, which is not the same for everyone

    Am I mistaking ?

    Yes, the first active crate and moves into place once the "let's get started" button is corn.

    Please know that I mean absolutely no offense by this but, if you have members who do not contribute to your co-op or just don't play after joining, or you are "carrying them' by playing the farms for them, and you want your co-op to be able to compete in these kind of events, don't keep those people in the co-op.
    Co-op Leader has the option to exit them and bring others in that will help out where it is needed. There are a lot of people playing who would be happy to join a progressive co-op, even if the co-op has just been formed and that is the way they want it to go. It will take a bit of time for it to happen but ...It will happen!! :)
    I know this because I have just recently left a very well established Co-op, to Join a relatively new Co-op and it was a great move. I am very happy with the choice I made. We did have a few that came and went and that's normal I think!  It has kept me playing Big Farm actually. We now have a great Team and we always communicate with eachother & strategize on what to do and how to go about everything (in game) , we have come far in the few months that I have been there. It also helps that we have a Great Co-op Leader! :) 

    No offence taken here, I like to give small levels a chance just wish they would say if they don't enjoy game and are giving up.
