    unless im missing a trick here, as im not in a coop how am i meant to get spruce? you can't buy it and im not able to plant edge crops.... did they say when they announced this it was a 'coop based' event?


    To find the answer you have to think like a GGS project manager, for example:

    "where can we add a hurdle for solo players ?  edge plants ..."

    only solutions for solo players: buy gold when the hot deal offering village items is active, or spend gold to buy edge plants in their basket offers 



  • I like others was part way thru event before realizing I had to be part of a co-op to finish.
    Normally GGS will make note if you need to be part of a co-op to participate.  I don't read up on events I take that there will be enough info on the game.  Lately there seems to be more reason to quit that keep playing.
    I don't want to join a co-op just to finish the event.  I was looking forward to something new but again disappointed.  Of course there will be no reimbursement for donkeys donated.

    You'd be most welcome to join us for the duration.  No donations or event participation required.  We leave you alone to farm your way.  Link to description of coop is in my signature.  Visitors are always welcome if we have openings. :)

    Very unhappy and disappointed that was not able to finish the event. I am not interested in joining a co-op.
    I felt this  this was unfair to everyone that could not complete the event and lost what they had donated.
    There was no information saying the event was not open to everyone.
    I am not interested in joining a co-op to finish.

    Food truck is asking for so many donation. It's not worth doing just to get the deco....:((
    And I was so excited with this new event but I think I wouldn't be doing it in the future...I prefer to sell my products.
  • Truth be told.....ive family that were addicted to this game and played on the same Internet Address night after night,

    Come and visit us and look again all are playing BF. I was only starting out with a small farm.

    Weve all lost interest. As my Uncle says: "dont let this silly game take over your life"
    He used to get cross.
    He knows. Now we talk and are a family when we are together. Not watching Big Farm. Its not worth it. We go outside now and play like we are supposed to.

    Maybe a good thing.

    While I appreciate new events and its good to have something new and interesting to do here, (...) why does the final event reward always have to be a decoration? (..) Why can't it be like other events where you are offered a few rewards to choose from at the end, for example (...) an appearance perhaps??
    Agreed!!! I second this!! 
    really a skin? that is like a batman bandaid

    overall I have quite enjoyed this new event. It has been nice to have gourmet farm used for an event and have liked the variety in the products required. 

    however, it is not perfect, some things could really do with being changed ... in particular there are way too many tasks requiring the donation of products, at least some of these should be collect instead. If it stays this way it will probably make this event not worthwhile from a cost perspective, especially the higher difficulty levels. Also, there are no WWC event points showing & as it looked from the schedule that this is replacing the normal themed event I would have expected it to have points.

    this is a much needed event but should NOT replace the other weekly event on the main farm - it should be open to all and not just co-ops or paying with gold for edge crops as the only alternative

    no event points on the USA server as well.

    well his mantra was 'dont do everything' so yeah, something else i wont be bothering with, and im guessing that will go for the new FF event as well, at least i'll know not to bother from the start with that one

    yeah, that's exactly what the man who does not own a glass said ......

    Beside the obvious hurdles like spruce wood  and who knows what else, the various tasks involving donating items, rather than just producing items, have to be carefully evaluated. We need to decide if the rewards are worth the cost of all the materials we donate

    The cups needed is too high, even the mill making 99 donkey feed will only produce 76 cups.  The ratios are fine but the amount required needs to be lowered by 50%.  
  • It should pay, same as we got $ during Christmas prep donating to members lists.

    You found an even better idea:  Getting paid as you donate like the christmas event so players would not be worried about losing money for not completing the task.  It would be a good idea if completing a task gives a profit but no loss for not completing it.

    @piana (SKN1)  If you're not in a cooperative, you can't grow the edgeplants that they ask for in the event. That's a big problem for players in this event. :( You could start your own coop or join a coop that will let you in for just the event.

    It should give the same amount as the sell value, exploitable bug needs to be fixed.

    Doing the math, and seeing the drop rates, there is absolutely no way I can collect enough napkins to finish this event -- probably not even with an event booster, which is nowhere on the horizon. :(

    The food truck appeared when I reached level 80.  
    The food truck requires too much barley and eggs for a level 80 player.  
    It would take more than a day to finish it.

    I think a level 80 player should be able to collect 1990 eggs easily in a day, barley would most likely be the more questionable requirement however it still sounds reasonably fair.

    Could we have this event require harvests rather than donations please?
    And could the same be asked for the upcoming "Wedding Planner" event?

    I was asking for anything required to be "harvests" (meaning we get to keep the product), v. "donations" (meaning we don't.)  The Wedding Planner event already is set up for the Flower Farm, so who knows which items they will ask for.  Either way, you have to harvest whatever it is ... it will take the same amount of time.  Just asking that they ask for "collections" rather than "donations."
