Thank you for the mystery boxes the prizes are somewhat welcome.  The only suggestion I have is that when you give the extra experience points for them you can pick when to use them as apposed to having them when you have no opportunity to use them when they come out of the box..  It takes something like 12 hours for cherries and 2 hours for apples, 3 hours for almonds and 14 for peaches.  If you have harvested you won't get any of them within that hour you have.  It's especially annoying when you get them back to back.  Just a thought.

    While i agree with this, the team already answered this by saying it will never happen.

    The benefit of these bonuses have a huge impact on the game mechanics and this means that having the chance to stack them has a direct potential risk of abusing this, unbalancing the event requirements.

    Just open them when you have all your buildings ready to harvest. You might not get the boosters, but if you do, you can use them.
    It would appear that that would be the better solution to the problem.

    It's strange things that will assist us to play the game better with better results seems to be difficult if not possible for them to do.  Since the game mechanics don't work half the time what's one more?  As to the potential for abuse or stacking the bonus that a lot of horse manure.  If they can limit the amount of everything we have on the farms like feed and how much barn storage and decorations we are allowed to have.  I bet there is an enterprising individual that can write a program  that won't allow you more then two of the bonus I am talking about.  As to unbalancing the event requirements :P = Bronx cheer or as it's known in wider circles a raspberry.  Not jumping on you Pin just stating my opinion on the powers that be.

    Maybe GGS will rotate the next WWC event to start and end in a way to give you better advantage.  We can always hope.  I know the AU server coops have the same difficulty as you.

    Hi. I'm sure I'm not the first person to suggest this, but is there some way of allowing the player when to start boosters? We all get the silly ones out of the mystery boxes that can be wasted as the orchards were harvested 5 mins before you open the mystey box. Or like when the WWC finished and if people weren't logged in they lose hours of the 50% booster because it started straight away.

    I am not a programmer and do not know the complexity of setting a line of code to allow this but I'm sure it's not that much different to the decorations which can sit in our inventory for months

    I bought a farm booster and discovered it started right away instead of just going into my storage.  I didn't want to start now, I wanted to go to bed.  Now I have a four hour booster running on my main farm.  What a waste, it did not say it would start immediately, it was an offer to buy the booster.  Now i am out 9,000 lucky coins and a wasted booster running on my farm.

    GGS, please return my booster to me and let it go to my storage for use when I want to use it.  If you can't do that, then please give me back my 9,000 lucky coins I spent to buy it.

    Finally, please have that information readily available when purchasing boosters so we know they start right away, or go to storage for later use on the farm.

  • @SuzyQ22 (US1) Boosters are always activated immediately, whether they are won in events or mystery boxes etc or purchased, they are not an object which is stored in your inventory &  it is something that we have passed on suggestions about several times.

    If you logged out of your farm just after it was activated, I would suggest contacting support & explaining the situation to them, they should be able to see that you were logged out, though I can`t promise they will refund your gold, it can't hurt to try.

    Good luck!

    What about the handbook boosters you can buy?  Those I take it go into storage?  Which is why I thought I could buy a booster from Omar, and have it saved in my inventory.  This game leaves a lot to be desired regarding informing us how things work around here.  Epic fail in that area too!

    I don't want to beat a dead horse but I want to say again that I think these boosters need to be activated by choice when purchased by a player.  Omar is offering the same Farm Booster of 25% for 9,000 Lucky Coins right now.

    I also want to say the same thing for those that come in the mystery boxes because they also begin immediately.

    The player should have choice when to use those boosters and I don't want to open my three mystery boxes I have because I don't want boosters automatically starting on my game right now.

    Please look into changing this, so we can choose when to use our boosters, that were either purchased, or won in the game.  Thanks, SuzyQ

  • The boosters are a rip-off anyway.  Save your coins up.  I got an Irish Chicken Coop with some of mine, now I have enough for another one whenever they get around to offering it again.

    What's the benefit of an Irish Chicken Coop?  It looks Like Omar is offering one coming up on mine.  I see it gives more eggs than a regular coop does, so I see what the benefit is.

    I still want boosters to be activated when we want to use them, not automatically.

    A mere suggestion to enable activation of the "Shorter times" reward gained from events or even mystery boxes. Its great reward and all, but its of little use if one, like me, does not have the money for upgrades, etc. The idea is to make them able to activate on will to gain full use of it in right time, like when the money is not a problem.

    I think the ability to pause boosters especially the ones involving reduced time with production and construction would be of a great benefit to many players. I know of a few players in my server that will miss out on its benefits because they have plans over the weekend and can't be online to take advantage of the 72 hour reward. Many hours are also lost due to sleep, work, life in general and I believe being able to pause these boosters during this time would be a great addition to the game.

    I agree that it would be more fair to pause boosters.  
    I suggest to be able to use boosters anytime you want, being able to use them by the hour for example after getting a 12 hour booster, you can use 2 hours one day, 3 hours another day until they are all used up.

    I agree 100%.  I just got one of these mystery boxes for experience points from Orchards.  I just collected my apples 20 minutes before I got the mystery box.  Why GGS makes these things start right away without the player deciding when to use them is beyond me.

    I fell in that hole a couple of times. Now I never open boxes until my Apples are ready to harvest  :¬)

    Is it possible to put a timer on this reward? Perhaps a 6-8 hr time from when the box is opened until it must be used?
  • SuzyQ22 (US1)SuzyQ22 (US1) US1 Posts: 1,475
    Why a timer?  Why not an ability to save it and use it when we want to?  The same thing happens with boosters for fields and meadows.  It really isn't benefitting us players when we can't use our boosters when we want to.  GGS forces things on us anyway, so I guess it is par for the course, right?

    Being able to choose when to activate boosters is similar to activating a farm machine.  There is no problem with saving a booster from a mystery box for later.  
  • dchen1 (US1)dchen1 (US1) US1 Posts: 993
    The amount of dollars, xp, premium cow feed, fertilizer and certificates from a mystery box is way too low.  Dollars and xp should be increased according to level.

    How do you save a booster to use later?  They always start right away when you close the box.

    I am suggesting a change to make it more fair.  
  • It would be nice if time bound rewards where collectible instead of direct running when you receive it.

    For example when wheel off fortune is done and you win 8 hours fish experience, just before bedtime or worktime or, a 12 hour 50% faster building time bonus just before you start something that takes longer to build then that time.

    It makes those rewards useless.

    Make it collectible with a 24 hour time limit to start it, that way it will be more rewarding.

    I don’t know if this is already suggested, if so I couldn’t find it.

  • dchen1 (US1)dchen1 (US1) US1 Posts: 993
    I want boosters to appear in a boosters section of the inventory that can store up to 10 boosters which can be used any time.
