    To say I am annoyed is nothing to what I would like to say.  I don't usually take part in these events but was doing well (for me lol) so thought I would see it out to the end.  I had just finished 14hrs of apples and was on barley, but had to go out.  As I still had over 5hrs left until I needed to harvest again I thought I would be fine, so planted all my sp barley seeds so that I could use seaweed on them when I came home.  I now have 5 gardens full of sp barley but apparently there has been a hotfix and I now need to harvest lambs lettuce.  As I have no sp seeds for that crop it seems that I will be sitting out the remainder of this event.  Not a happy bunny !!!

  • I don't understand how GGS can justitfy some of the things they do.  My whole co-op is frustrated right now.  They have every right to be.  The event came back with different produce then their individual event called for.  Planned ahead for items that are no longer needed besides.  Epic fail!!

    I must say, the huge outcry for this CCHWE is but a tiny squeak compared to when the DSF direct sell was first taken away. I don't think we can ever really ever forget that time.

    Where is the DEV TEAM now?

    They where here when they got the idea for the hotfix. Now when everything is a mess all we get is SILENCE!

    Maybe it is best this way.  I don't know how many more of these "hot fixes" I can take!  I am almost totally out of the needed seaweed humus, etc. to change out fields/gardens/meadows just to accommodate the change of silo crates that come about with hot fixes.  What would help is if this CCHWE would just end and we'd be done with it.  That would give me time to clear my head, I am dizzy with  keeping up the the changes.

  • They Hot Fixed and then went home because they KNEW their Hot Fix would 'fix' everything perfectly :wink:

    Yes the same kind of thing happened to me.  Only mine was jasmine that had many hours to go before the next crate of wheat was next.  Yes, I planted 15 fields of long growing wheat and after wheat was lambs lettuce was after wheat so 9 gardens were planted with them. Only to find when I came back the hot fix fixed me for bad.  I used my last bag of seaweed humus to free up a wheat field to plant wildflowers then corn, and then dandilions...ugh. So like you, I am not a happy bunny!

    Well I did what I said that I would never do - skipped the lambs lettuce with some of my hard earned gold :(  I just couldn't face waiting for over 2hrs for my sp seeds to be ready or 7hrs to harvest my normal lambs lettuce. I could have used seaweed on it but was so annoyed that I forgot about that lol .  Think there will be LOTS of very unhappy bunnies tonight.

  • Wait a minute!  What happened?  When I went to bed, my silo was processing jasmine and it should have lasted until just now before going on to rutas, but when I got up, the "drudgery silo" was like it was starting all over and wants now corn.  I am confused! :o:#:p:o:/  Has this happened to anyone else?  Is this thing broken or what? :o:#:o:(



    The same happened to me...a good 8 hr sleep and first thing this morning I got interrupted for maintenance as I started rutabagas and when I could return my HWE started again but can't collect that first level 10 seaweed feed. geezsh! you guys think we can all play 24/7 and have tons of cash to continually play on gold!!! c'mon
  • I will be glad when HWE is over. It has been a nightmare from the very beginning, worse now. Another event I can stop playing.





  • started the hardworker event, again, and task is still there as well as the reward.  Figure giving us the reward for restarting this event and ruining all the planning is the least they can do.

  • All the specials that were in - lost!!!!  Had to collect some to start new harvest - what a load of pure f... up
    Bet they do not reimburse us either.
    Bugs or not - they owe us big time - its their fault for doing fixes that do not fix anything.  Its about time they left things be until event over.  Or... sort out the ruddy bugs beforehand.

    Every friggin time - its not on and they expect us to put up and shut up?????????????????

  • This coop HW is total mistake! There is no way to win GML ever again without using gold! My coop is so so angry. GGS really wants us to give up playing this game. Small coops has no chance. And that hot fix... Maybe it's better to shut up because I will say something really bad.
    NOT fair at all, dear GGS!!!!
  • This is why I will never spend gold with you guys. I had all my crops set up perfectly when you announced that you were doing a hot fix. I figured when you finally let us back in, it would be time for the barley which I wasted good fertilizer on. Then after that it was supposed to be cabbage so I used all the special seeds for that. I come back and at first it says I have 0 points at all but I had to restart my computer and came back and the points are back but it still acts like it is starting all over so now it is corn first and then dandelions which I just did before the hot fix. So all my barley and cabbage was a waste. I swear if you would mess up like this more, it would finally break my addiction for this game cause wasting time and not getting anything is frustrating as HE%%

    Reward? Did you get a reward when you started the hard worker event?

    A hotfix is a term often used by a manufacturer or developer to describe a vital fix or correction in software. What makes a hotfix different than a patch is that they are created specifically for a customer's need and not distributed to the public.
    HOTFIX....hmm .... maybe they forgot to distribute it to their customers needs
  • You know (my opinion) I truly believe that each and every time that the "powers that be" has sought to fix this CCHWE, they should give every one of us farmers at least 100 bags of seaweed humus and 100 bags of seaweed feed and 100 bags of seaweed fertilizer. That way we could scramble to try to keep up the drastic changes of each "hot fix". :):o<3o:)
    There definitely needs to be some serious compensation for all.
    Amen, and Amen to that.  Maybe like every one getting the 1st place award as compensation!  o:):o<3
    Sounds fair if I also get the gold and seaweed back that I used to crawl up to 1st place in my group ;)

    Okay, I also lost 6 hours of barley with 5 gardens planted to extend the run, following products changed as well so that's a bummer.
    But there was another bug that I've only seen one person post about and that is that I got all the hard work rewards I'd earned before again. :)
    Unfortunately I hadn't reached the seaweed humus yet but the seaweed feed will come in handy so all in all I'm not that bothered about the fix, maybe because I did and do not see the benefit of spending gold in an event that will not give a good return for it so I didn't spend any.

    Why oh why do they even bother with a "test server???"  This sure never got a test.  Clearly. 
    Maybe they are testing to check it is buggy enough before release? :D 
  • Lol well I have given up on this event now. PMSL I've even got the event pop up come up on the left side of the screen telling me the event is about to start!!!! (you know, the task thingy that is titled 'What Drudgery')
    To boot I had the crops for the next crates change without warning at some point in the last 24 hours...
    I dearly hope they change it back to how it was before and if they really want to make some improvement to it, why not split it into more leagues based on player performance (note I say performance and not level) because it is always the same players at the top and no one else gets a look-in at the best prizes. Nothing against those players but some of us have to work for a living and can't be on here 24 hours a day.

    Oh and make it a 'gold free' event so it isn't just down to who can spend the most money (yes I know, that AIN'T never gonna happen...)

    Now that you mention it I did notice a lot of things flying up when I logged in but didn't really take much notice.  However it appears that I also received all the rewards again - very nice as I was running out of horseshoes and seaweed.  Don't know if it was intentional or not, but thank you GGS for this small offering.
