    Looking in bonus task, I must donate 23.3K dandelion for 5th happiness point and co-op must donate 2.4M pigs for 2nd VH. Speaking of fulfillment, I spare some farmdollars from fish market contract to fill it a bit. If only DSF on it's "good" state..

    Keep it up!

    @WascallyWabbit, so once a coop has completed phase 1 and doing bonuses- there's no way a non participator can jump in and knock out your 100% complete. Correct?

    If your cooperative is in phase 3 doing bonuses, and a non-participant logs in, the bonus tasks are put on hold and the tree is returned to the Guardian phase.

    When the new participant's order has been completed, phase 3 resumes and you can continue with the bonus tasks.

    However, the new order must be completed before the chapter week ends.

    Oh, I sure hope that is true. My coop on the US1 has made it to the Bonus Round and yes we have non participators who could at the last second jump in to do stuff.  I would not like to have to go back to the Guardian phase to fill those folk's lists.

    It's true - we've ad a few members login for the first time while we were in bonus round.  Once their lists were filled, the bonus round resumed where we left off....still a gazillion apples to go.   :#

    When a nonparticipator starts collecting things for order , the bonus phase will be stopped till that player completes 100 percent and then it will be resumed from where we left . 
    For example if a coop had donated 40L/45L apples in bonus phase and then a nonparticipator jumps in , u go back to phase 1 and only after the player has completes 100 percent , the bonus quest will get resumed with same 40L/45L apples.

    In phase 3, it requires 1 million pigs to get 1 village happiness in a cooperative with 40 members.  That means that each member needs to donate 25000 pigs.  This is way too much compared to the 3500 rutabaga for the personal task to get regular happiness.

    I sure hope the next chapter dose not increase the amounts needed for phase 3. Chapter 1 is asking for 7 million apples and donating that many apples is beyond the realm of possibility.  Even though we have a great group of hard working members, why must it be so high. Really takes the fun away from the event.
    Good god, where do they get these figures from ??

    Well at least if we can get to the Bonus round even though we can not complete it, we will still get the deco for Chapter 1.

    @CrazyBigfarm55 (US1) I think that the bonus tasks get more difficult as you complete them.

    In phase 3, it requires 1 million pigs to get 1 village happiness in a cooperative with 40 members.  That means that each member needs to donate 25000 pigs.  This is way too much compared to the 3500 rutabaga for the personal task to get regular happiness.  
    @dchen1 (US1)  Even though it is just 1 VHP, that is 1VHP per member, so in a coop of 40 members that is potentially 40VHP added to the calculation for the average village happiness of the coop. I still agree the amounts are very high, but I can see why they are so much higher than in the individual tasks.

    Is Rudolph broken?  He did not move today, and the page did not turn.
    @gavinfarms (US1) I think the US1 server time is CST, so your day should have reset about 20 mins ago.

    I see no Happy Hour.  Is Happy Hour really gone?  I really thought that we were past this.
    As previously announced, HH was intended as a summer event & will return next summer, but it has made brief appearances for the Oktoberfest & WWC as a bonus. We have no news yet of any other possible appearances between now & next summer, but you never know. :)

    G'day fellow farmers.  We had the understanding that the Christmas Prep event was a team effort.   We could help each other out after we complete our own.   Cool... but we've been comparing our lists thinking that we all see that Farmer A needs 1000 apples and is finished in everything else.  Not the case.  I see one amount of apples outstanding for Farmer A and other members sees a totally different amount of apples for Farmer A.  And we see different lists altogether for Farmer A.   It kinda defeats the purpose of working together if you can't see progress being made doesn't it? 

    Is this the way it's supposed to happen?

    Yes.  This is what allows level 5 people to help 210 members fill their lists.  What you donate is based upon what your level and farm should be able to produce.

    The #'s and items are different, but it all works out.  We simply use the terms like I need help on #3 or #6 in the list, to communicate clearly.

    Thanks  LilFarm.  I think that's our biggest problem.   I can say I need help on #3, but nobody else has a #3.  ??  And we've been communicating judging from our chat conversations about it.   LOL  
  • I don't know WHY GGS fails to realize this is a problem. They apparently felt that someone joining an "Open Co-Op" during the last 10 seconds of the event was enough of a problem to fix, but not someone who only has time to log in once a week.

    Even a START button wouldn't help, if someone wanted to be vindictive.

    I just hate that GGS puts our Co-Op Leaders in the position of having to remove less active players strictly because of this event. Sure, we could do like Artful and just ignore it, but our members WANT these Decos.  Leaders have to balance the wants of the entire Co-Op.
    @Southern (US1) I think that they do "get it" as the complaint has come from some many communities, however by the time we realised it had not been addressed this time, it was too late to make such a significant change & test it thoroughly & risking adding it & messing up the event was even worse - we should have started to pester them in the Summer, but we are hopeful that we can get something changed for next year, though I appreciate that is not much help this year. :(

    One option is to insist that all members start their lists, in phase 1, if you have a very active coop & know that the other members can easily complete it, at least that stops casual members from accidentally starting it at a later time. It is not perfect, as a red dot can easily just suddenly return & harvest their farm, before even checking what events are running, but it can help with those unpredictable members that show up once or twice a week.

    @wascallywabbit So I guess if no other players on your team want to contribute (or can't get on to their farms) There's no point participating? no individual benefit for this?
    @Betty Birken (US1) If you are the only active member in your coop & you are able to complete your own list each week, the you can get all 5 decos yourself. If another member does show up & start their list, it would also need to be completed though.
    Thank you very much! I DO appreciate the time you give wascallywabbit to explain and help...especially when we get really grumpy & upset with download issues. I haven't been able to play for days...maybe get on to register & flip my puppies but that's about it. I did some tinkering and noticed some improvement on your part. Just swell...happy farmer again Cheers!
