They did try the video's thing but it was hideously unreliable and repetative so they discontinued it thakfully (and the rewards they eventually offered were dreadfully poor)

In the Valentine Hunt, one of the rewards is Breeding Corn. Whoever thought this was a reward does not know the game -- if you grow corn at all, you are up to your ears in Breeding Corn.

JUST now realized that unless you are part of a Co-op, there is no way to ever win any of the search events...ie balloons. You need 315 balloons to collect the prize. If you find every single balloon every day for 9 days, you'll have only collected 243 balloons...without the Co-op farm.I am currently co-op-less due to both the HTML5 debacle (GGS-induced game issues=>unable to participate to a level that would be helpful to a co-op) and Hubby-health related issues. So sad that I am forced to drop yet MORE events either due to inaccessibility or unrealistic requirements making it impossible to be successful without spending vast amounts of gold. I kind of enjoyed searching for items on my farms...a mindless, get-away, with a very simple reward. ; )The HWE's are pretty much the only event worth doing any longer & of those the FHWE is the only one that I have a remote chance of completing....esp with the 2AM event start times now locked in for my US time zone.Because it's actually working, I anticipate another "Hot Mess"..oops, I mean "Hot Fix" that will destroy the FHWE as well....time will tell (but on BF, these things always seem to come to fruition) : (

WOW !!! : DTY ALL so much for your kind offers to join your co-ops!! I so appreciate your thoughtfulness!!Unfortunately, I am a HUGE stickler for personal responsibility and, IF I were to belong to a co-op, I would be obligated to attempt to be active & participate in any & all ways possible to hold up my end. Given life's current circumstances, that time commitment is not possible right now. ***The FACT that this HTML5 SNAFU is SUCH a massive nightmare and making farming virtually impossible 60-80% of the time, only adds to the stress in my life. LOL...so much for gaming as a release from RL. ; )IF I ever do return to co-op life (@ this point it is even doubtful how long I'll last on BF at all) I would be returning to my "Home" @ Four Seasons (if they'll have me). ; )FYI: The Co-op Village Icon is not available on my menu bar and therefore I have no access whatsoever to collect balloons or any other search items. Yet another wonderful "upgrade", courtesy of GGS...Yay! : /Again, Thanks for your kindness!**OOPS!!! I CAN get to the Village by clicking on the World map!!TY, Val C !!! I would NEVER have tried that as you'd think it should be available with all the other farms on the right menu bar.Wow... You've made my day!! TY, TY, TY !!Now (if my GGS connections & my tolerance for the usual HTML5 frustration hold out) I may be able to finish an actual event. Happy, Happy!
