  • Why is there not a gauge that shows us how many of whatever  we need to advance to the next level...??  In it's place is an "indicator" that shows you bonus points instead...totally useless....mine says +0 ... lol...something tells me, mine is going to stay that way  :|  

    So I ask you all....are we having fun yet..??  Image result for having fun pics

    Anyone else having timer issues? I had an hour and a half left on rutabaga (yes, I double checked), left for just a minute and came back to find it had moved on to corn.  Curiouser and curiouser.

  • 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
    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.
    I agree...I have that same problem trying to rebuild our Co-Op...new anti-social people join, no communication, collect gold and do nothing...bye-bye. Of a team of 17 members we recently lost 4 to cancer over the past year; 4 others in the red have been hit by Tornadoes, Floods and Fires in the southern states so have no home,no internet service to be able to play and have some fun. We were a very close socialized group of friends that started this co-op over 5 years ago, a mature bunch of ladies and just don't have the bother for the cheek & bad manners from the younger kids. I took a few lower levels to help them out but it was too much like baby-sitting. Most were kids (meh) Anyway, just gave-up asking & looking for members. Being down to 3 people, we just like to piddle about as there is too much focus on competition rather than playing & enjoying your farm at the time you can commit between work and family. I reviewed those new members looking to join co-ops but they want to play a few minutes hereNthere over a couple of weeks, nah-dah...those rules for Cooperative 101 with GGBF Tutorials, especially the expectations of joining a co-op should be posted very clearly on that thread. The purpose of a co-op is fellowship and teamwork.

    LOL!  Except this time it wasn't my memory.  I specifically checked to see how much time was left on the timer -- and it wasn't my eyesight, either!  :)

  • My booster for 10 hrs has disappeared; all I can do is use the 1 hr. booster.  What happened to my 10 hr. booster?  I'm willing to pay for it.

    you need to buy the 1 hour booster first then the 10 hour will show up

    Oh I see.  I had already bought the 1 hr booster and had bought the 10 hrs booster.  That sure does take a bunch of $'s.  Oh well, I guess I won't be buying any more boosters

  • is anybody having there coop points total going down ?
  • PCA (GB1) said:
    I have mix feelings about this update

    Another coop event: so far everyone has been complaining about the frequency of CC. The more players complained the more the frequency increased, which shows, among other things, that messaging on forum is useless

    Players have already predicted that the frequency of CC will keep increasing, even to a permanent race, like the village league

    This coop HWE is exactly that, a prologue to a permanent competition.  HWE has been doubled with the Fish-HWE, then it has been launched ahead of time

    In total CC is more frequent (even before Cooptober) and HWE way more frequent than it used to be.

    After tomorrow's update we have the next step, two coop events with no time in between, 8 days in a row, 2 weekends included.

    I predict more people will be leaving the game 




    Yup!! Right
    and this time requirement is so high for gml that i m sure i will not get it so not puting any effort in hwe............ : ))

  • Oh wait, this is a Halloween prank on the players! Going to backfire when the players revolt and turn the tables. I have plenty of ideas on how to prank them back....starting with not buying any more gold to fill their pockets when they don't fix things and think the players are too stupid to catch on to what they are doing

    Apples or jasmine would probably give you that time but not the conventional way. If you could get either of them up to 5-6 points per second and have 4 bonus points to go with it that and perhaps a small booster either coop or personal then you would get 10pps + for that period of time. The problem is that bonus points will require you to hit 10pps on other items which has become difficult with the "re-balancing". Even with 31 fields its a struggle getting there unless seaweed is used.

    I'm pretty sure the harvest you're looking for doesn't exist.  And especially not with this new "improved" version of the HWE.  Under the old one you could get 6 to 10 hours of a 7 or 8-point pack with, as I remember, apples, milk, jasmine.  Maybe barley.  But with the old one, when you hit a 10-point pack, the time you lost was drastic - so when you hit 10 pps you'd be cut down to just a small fraction of the packing time left.  I'm pretty sure the only way to get the harvest you want is by spending loads and loads of gold.

    When you do get apples in this new version, you'll be disappointed.  If you've got 12 or more apple orchards, you'll get a 2-point pack for 12 hours.  When you then get above 4-point pack, you'll be cut to about 9 hours.  I don't know what it would take (other than gold) to even get to a 10-point pack, but I guarantee the time left would be short.

    I used seaweed fertiliser to get to 10 points per second and it took about 75000 apples to get from level 9 to level 10. It was definitely not worth it, including the other levels I used about 1000 seaweed fertiliser to reach level 10 for the bonus point.

    The points are much harder to get now, I can only realistically ever get up to 6 or 7 points per second for most items now.

    Are there any apples or milk in this HW?.  I've had eggs once and the rest has all been field stuff.  Never thought I would yearn to see some apples.

    I have apples coming up next.  So far, it's been rutabaga followed by cabbage and back to rutabaga.  Absolutely no fun at all.

    I've had apples. Ten level 7-8 orchards = 2 points per second for about six hours.
