    I prefer all the free winter appearance for buildings, not only simple house and chicken coop.

    Yes, if you harvest an item on your list, you'll automatically start the event; if you don't finish it (and/or your Co-Op doesn't finish your list for you), then they will not receive the Deco for that chapter and become ineligible for the Chapter 5 Deco.

    Some people on the forum have noted that just *logging in* automatically starts the event in some cases, but I have yet to confirm that with my own two eyes.

    It depends on the coop.  If yours isn't doing the event, it won't matter.

    I think so,  if you log in and just begin farming, the chances are great that you will harvest something on the list for you...once you do that, the rest of the coop needs to  jump in and fill your list.  The best way to avoid that is to just take a Big Farm break for 6 days and not sign in.  Just do other stuff around your house, letter writing, sending out Christmas Cards (if you celebrate it), doing activities with neighbors and those around your community, you know all that stuff neglected for the love of BF. LOL!

    If you don't want to quit farming, you're welcome to join our coop for the duration.  When it's over, you can return to your coop or stay with us -- no worries either way. (Description is in my signature.)

    None of us are that impressed but it is unreasonable to have a go at the Mods, they are players in their own right and do as much as they are able to help the rest of us .
    New themed events are in my view welcome, you can chose to do them or not, and pick your level . No competition, only stressful if you decide it will be .
     Glad to see the Xmas Preparation event is to come back, its popular in my co op, gets everyone working together , although the rewards are not that wonderful . Reduced requirements won't hurt , we normally ignore stage 3, not worth the effort .
      it seems the events that cause all the trouble  involve coop rankings , so why not forget them, apart from the odd Coop Championship, say monthly would be about right IMHO . Certainly the Coop HardWorker is useless , it has caused mayhem each time, just forget it and redo .
    Well said. We had no issues with the Christmas event. Even when they started the second chapter early, we were done with the first one with all players showing 100% minus 1 that is rebuilding from a total loss in the texas Hurricane. We were 6 people short and already on the bonus part of the early released second chapter when they took it. and we already had everyone in place to tend to those people as they came in to play. We were able to finish another player within thirty minutes of their arrival once they logged in. We had no issues with the Christmas event. We are in agreement with the bonus part not being worth the effort, we played the first item both personal and for the co-op just so we could make a showing, then we played at it but did not give it our all. We spent the time rebuilding and strategizing for the next chapter. 
  • IceeMimi (US1)IceeMimi (US1) US1 Posts: 136
    Yeah I tend to agree with the majority here.......the compensation package is terrible. If many have used gold seaweed humus etc the compensation should consist of these items. I personally care little about how my farm looks so the skins are useless to me....i'm all about efficiency and profits not looks. If chicken coops had snow on them the chickens would freeze   :p

    There's obviously something seriously wrong with the game and a lot of it stems around the Xmas and Coop Hardworker event. Why bother bringing that back, it starts at Chapter 3 and chances are it will malfunction yet again. The best thing to do would be to put this down as a failure this year and try to have it fixed and ready for next Xmas. I'd rather play something that works then have to fumble around bugs and errors constantly just because GGS is too stubborn to admit its broken. 
    I agree. If you do bring anything back, bring back the Christmas event of 2015. That one seemed to run without problems and gave us nice gifts. I was fairly new to the game at the time and yet I was able to make a clear showing that I was a worthy gamer freshly picked to be in the co-op. There are so many items needed and from areas not yet explored by some of the younger less leveled players which has to be frustrating. We step up and pull them across the finish line since that is what being in a co-op is all about, it is not one for one, it is all for one. We are part of your all, we helped build your business. Please keep that in mind as you put more on us with each update and we attempt to rise to the challenges. Our younger players our struggling. I am seasoned and find myself overwhelmed at times.

    After reading all the comments, I do agree that the compensation isn't adequate in general  At the same time, I can see where any compensation would fall short for some, and be a boon for others.  There just isn't any way to do this fairly and evenly except to go beyond the players' lowered expectations and hand out some serious gold.

    But, we as players, need to take some responsibility.  When you see an event isn't working probably, or encounter some glitches early on, red flags should be popping up.  And when that happens, the prudent thing to do is to stop and walk away.  Surely the past year and a half (yes, it's been going on longer than "just a few months) should have taught us not to continue to throw gold, seaweed, and resources on something that either has a track record of failure (Santa's Prep), something that obviously is broken (CC, CHWE), or something brand new that hasn't proven to be bug free yet (Cat's Tree).

    The CC fooled us all as it was an established event.  However, when it was obvious from the start something was wrong, many coops continued to push and do missions and spend gold and hope against hope that it would miraculously be all right in the end.  The smart ones said, "let's skip this one"  (It's not as if there won't be another one just around the corner, is it?) The same is true for the CHWE -- when the Coops didn't show up in the rankings, all expectations of Coop rewards should have gone out the window.

    But, no, we continue to pour good money after bad and then blame GGS because the game is broken.  Yes, the game is broken, and that lies squarely on their shoulders.  But we know the game is broken, and should take heed.  If you still want to spend gold and seaweed and time and resources knowing there's only a 50/50 chance of getting what you've been promised, then go for it.  It's your money. But we all need to quit whinging because we were cheated again -- caveat emptor.

    Hear hear!

    Hi GGS or BF or whoever reads our comments,  We all like new events and new items. But right now its Christmas Time, we would like to continue with the Christmas Tree. We know every new event has bugs, but we did this as Santa Wish List last year and it went fine. Maybe you need to drop some of the other events while the Christmas event runs. HURRY before Christmas is over. Thank You

    You're welcome.  We have an open door policy. All are welcome for a visit, or to stay, as long as we have room. :)

  • I thought that there was suppose to have been an update on Wed. 12/13.  Today is Wed 12/13 and it's 5 pm CET Wed 12/13 so it looks to me like there won't be anything done on any of this stuff today during CET time.  Where's the Christmas event and where all the compensationed packages?  I haven't seen anything new added to my supplies and when they are added where will we find all of these items?

    The skins are a useless and insulting compensation. How about something that actually helps our farms in a practical way.
