  • From the first place to the last, count to the end of the CHWE you will do something about it.

    Glad GGS. Such events please do so on your servers and not introduce such spoiled events to the players.

    Still no correction for the cooperative scores. We should be able to see these. This is NOT fun.

    Does anyone know when (approximately) CHWE will end? After how many hours?
    I expect it to run until 10.00 on tuesday  24-10 CEST. That's when the first HWE appeared for a few minutes. 
    I'm hoping you're right, in the end it started on the 20th at 20:00 CEST, that would mean until tuesday 20:00 CEST and we'd have CHWE and CC running at the same time :o


    I am afraid it might overlap with the CC because this morning at 10 CEST, the HWE timer did not go to 24 hours.

    Even now (14:00 CEST) it stills shows   ~1 day


    Correction : at 14:01 CEST the timer switched to 23:59:59 hours....so ending will be at 14:00 CEST on Tuesday 24-10-17

    The worst part about it all is for me anyhow, is that by the time the CC comes, I have no special seeds left to help me. ~Sigh~ :o:(

    GGS said that this even would last exactly four days.  I planned my point rate around this. Now the timer has changed to 23 hours, 6 hours early.  This is unacceptable.  This has cost me a vast amount of my inventory.  Please confirm that this will be fixed.

    6 hours needed to added to meet Wascallly's statement of "4 full days"

    I can prepare a list of the supplies that GGS needs to return to me, if this "4 full days" turns out to not be true!

    Some od my coop members cant get on their farms. They receve masage "this player allready exsist".
    I know this is not the topic of the thread, but I think it probably has something to do with all this mess. Does anyone else has that problem?

    I have been making a list, all weekend, of thoughtful comments to post about the HW, but it is very hard to be constructive, if we can't even get the timer right!

    Events in the game NEED to be FAIR.  This is NOT FAIR.

    We should rename the game to Wrecked Farm instead of Big Farm.

    I can accept that the server problems prevent us from seeing the current rankings on our end, because we know that BP will be first.  I am not minimizing this, but I understand the computing problem behind this.


    I based my play on 4 full days.....96 hours.  I used supplies that I would not have used.  I can make a list for GGS, of what I "wasted", given their inability to follow the timeline, that they announced. 


    They also have not fixed the GML from 26-50, back to 6-50.  They promised that this would be unchanged when the Coop HW was created.

    In the normal HWE when we got to 2.1 million points we got two GML's in this CHWE we get a level 4 useless deco for 2.6 million points and they call this FAIR?

    Don't underestimate Bullseye Ranch, they were running a close 2nd when they were taken down by these server issues.

    Most of us are just as irritated as you are but it does not appear that GGS can fix anything or put out anything that works anymore.

    Other changes

    • The rewards for the Halloween event have been exchanged with new and more rewards

    Presumably, this means the pumpkin hunt that appeared on my farm. However, there are no pumpkins on any of my farms.

    ?!?!

    ... and now it's gone.

    Quick work! :)
     ... and its back - still no pumpkins!

    Sigh.

    Well, take heart, Brat Pack, I truly believe when all is said and done, you all will be the #1 winner of everything.   <3:)

    Refresh your game. I had to refresh to see my pumpkins.

    You are a sweetheart but with all these issues we have ALL had to deal with, I think every cooperative that participated in this mess of an event they gave us to play should receive the number 1 prize!

  • I see that they finally took away the little guys only way to win GML with out having to spend a lot of money. Not everyone can afford a couple hundred dollars a month to play. Thanks

    Thank you, but I am so utterly happy with my prizes from the 1st CCHWE debacle that if I get nothing else from this 2nd debacle, I will still be happy!  <3o:):D

  • CHWE points for individual rewards:

    4 days = 96 hours = 5760 minutes = 345600 seconds
    100,000,000 points needed for highest reward = 290 POINTS PER SECOND 
    (100,000,000 points divided by 345600 seconds which is actually 289.3518519 points per second)
    And THAT'S if you started immediately when the HWE became available!!!!!

    I used to be able to just barely make the 1,200,000 points to get the gold mining licenses in the normal HWE, but in this "new and improved" version, the GML now requires 8,000,000 points which would require 23 points FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. 

    LAM E!!!!!

    Well, I see good ole George, bumped into the silo chasing after bugs! :o:#  Right after my ruta I was supposed to have alfalfa and then jasmine.  But instead of alfalfa, it jumped to jasmine...Good thing I had some ready!  :p:o:)  I see I finally have wheat in the line up, but if ole George keeps knocking the silo over, I may never get the wheat crate.  He really needs to call the "All Natural Pest Eliminators".  That is what I use around my property, because it is non poisonous to animals, so I don't have to worry about my pets or the lovely songbirds.  o:)

    Well, you know they were off duty during the weekend and now they see the mess and are trying to fix it for us.  Let's be patient and see how they help us! <3o:)

    The hotfix is to fix the CHW scores. The server will be down for about half an hour. There is an announcement on the server downtime thread.

    looks almost real, more close to real than anyone could ever imagine 

  • If the truth were told and the truth be done....we would be in a  " hotfix " most of the time    :p
      Maybe we should plant one of these on every farm.....might work as well as a "hotfix"    :#Image result for computer bugs work themselves out pics
