    Im 10hours ahead of European time though, so, i might have missed her somehow. What a shame!  :'(:'(

  • @Michiru (GB1) & others that missed Frida, we understand the timing was a bit short for some timezones, so we have requested that she pops back again.... No promises, but we have asked. :)

    My HWE didnt work the time before last time. They gave me a compensation package that included 10 special seeds of the following: corn, cabbage, rutabaga, alfalfa, wildflowers, dandelions. And 10x premium humus, and some premium fert and feed. I received the same compensation package again at the start of the next hwe. Both packages combined could not come close to the points I had lost in losing a few days time in the HWE.

    I sent a ticket and told them that I understood that balancing a compensation package across so many players must be difficult, but it isn't so difficult to see that every player lost the same thing, Time!, Time can only be recovered in this game with seaweed or gold. The compensated humus should have at least been seaweed. Even with that, it would have come nowhere near leveling the playing field between those who played the HWE from day 1 and those who lost days, which should have been the intention of the package in the first place.

    My goldfish event didn't work. They gave me a compensation package that included 50 goldfish bait. When I was a low level I would try to clear the three fishing areas on the MF/GF/FF every half hour, it was too much fishing and, as a result, by the time I unlocked the deep sea area I burnt myself out on fishing and relied on that instead. So, I do not fish anymore, and 50 goldfish bait is totally wasted on me. The goldfish I lost by my event not working were from Oleg and the only way to recover THAT is with gold, so give me gold. This is a non-compensation package insofar as I am concerned. Just give me the 50 goldfish or an equivalent in points.

    tl;dr: improve the compensation packs, they are exactly this: useless. I may as well have received nothing because that is what these packs do for me.

    edit: this is the fourth useless package I have received, I would honestly prefer they did nothing instead. At least then I wouldn't feel like I lost twice.

    1million dollars for a single zodiac spin?!  :o



    I dont remember how much it was in the previous years, but surely it wasn't this much? I definitely did a lot of spinning previously.. but id be broke in no time at this price..  :'(

    Edit: Just figured out that the price for a random spin depends on your farm level... yeah i guess that makes sense.. shame that apparently im now in the upper category.. how i yearn for the lower level days atm  :D

    Just a quick FYI, the "Daily Activity Challenge" for Day 1 is only 6 hours long on (US1). It will reset at Midnight Server Time tonight to Day 2 of 15. 

    Going to make it VERY difficult to get the Pagoda Lantern (Reward 20) for today.

    US1 will NEVER get the lantern

    We have complained about this for 2 years, GGS fixed it for most other events, but not this one.

    US1 DEMANDS 100% of the chips required to win all the day 1 prizes for CNY + all the day 1 prizes!

    Yep, we were shorted the first day. Looks like GB got shorted even worse.

    anyone have info on these flags (pic attached), are they from Golden Week, Chinese New Year, Zodiac? I really like them and would like to earn one but I cannot find any information on them after several days searching, what event are they from and how are they earned?

    Thank you for any info.

    edit: thank you very much Southern!

    They are earned during the daily "Hard Work Rewards", usually reward #20 for a particular day.

    Today's reward #20 is a Deco, but tomorrow it'll probably be a flag (or not).. But that's where they'll be during the 15 day event.

  • The counter is not counting on the Chinese New year since it went to day 2 I have been in the same spot.  Have rebooted and it still won't change.

    You have to collect Rat Chips today. Those are the only ones that "Count" towards today's activity challenge.

    They start these events on such silly times.  It was 11pm here so we had 1 hour doh

    What about the Fireworks booster during Chinese New Year Event?  one player in my coop got it just for 30 minutes, the other player for 7 minutes and the third didn't get it at all. Is it individual?
    I only receive zodiac cards from fields and stables, what about silo, humus and meadow? the graphic shows them but doens't count them at all.
    Hope to read an answer soon.

    VAM (US1) said:
    So the most recent fireworks booster started and the timer said it was going to last for 46 minutes on my farm.  After about 20 minutes, I realized that the number of zodiac chips dropping on my farm were not being boosted at all - they were the normal amounts dropping.  So I reloaded my game when the firework timer still said 20 minutes left.  When the game rebooted, the fireworks timer was gone.  So the timer is broken, too?!?!  I had planted special seeds and things counting on having 45 minutes of fireworks.  Between this error and the one where people on different severs got short-changed for day 1 of the event, it looks like nothing was fixed from last year.  I guess all the talk in the recent announcement about moving forward with well-tested and good quality events was just empty words.  The day 1 issue has plagued almost every multi-day event launched on this game, so I don't understand why they didn't fix it before launching this event this year.  And please, fix timers in the game.  They all seem to have errors.  I'd rather not have a timer at all if it is just going to display incorrect information.
    It happened the same to me. Ironically I thought that the times on twitter were wrong (a typo?), but it seems that you can trust less the in game timers than the twitter feed...

    if you mouse over the CNY plot in the car park, it gives the correct duration for the fireworks booster, clearly a display bug, if that's the worst we get, then i'm not complaining , I like this event .

    Thank you Southern! I am curious as I see pictures of streamers (big pic attached), and had the opportunity to win one today, have these replaced the red flags (small pic attached)?

    like I said in my previous comment, I really want to earn the red flags and I will be severely disappointed if they have been replaced by those ridiculous streamers! Please let me earn the red flags, not the streamers!

    the red flags look awesome! the streamers look stupid!



    edit: two of my coop mates have said that they were replaced with the new flags... (a third said it was probably because people would complain that they HAVEN'T changed before and wanted new ones! WHY???)

    WHY!?!?!?!

    edit: i wasnt participating in the event yesterday because 1. I only had 6hrs and 2. it was for a deco.
    I wasnt participating today because it was just a streamer flag.

    I guess I wont be participating at all.. I am severely disappointed (just like I said I would be).
