Where has all the Prime Bonus gone?

Usually there was a prime bonus at least one time a day, but now they have allmost disappeared..
Could we have them back please, as regularly as they used to be. It makes a difference, when you use Gold, that you can actually also get a little bonus to do that.

    @mutterkjær (SKN1) We have noticed less Prime spending & did raise that issue with the team already, can you say which offers you are not getting, is it the gold buying deals & do you know if others in your coop are getting them & you are not or is no one getting any?

    The one I miss is when you start the gold mine, you use 2000 gold to do that. One of the Prime Bonus that was very often available is to use 900 gold and get 10 seeweed. Or use a little more and get wild flower special seeds. There were many others like that with different amounts of gold to be used, but we allmost don´t get any of them. I do not know about my coop-members experience, but I will ask them. I know that the one farm that I am currently taking care off, does not get the offers either.

    Have asked the coop, and those who answered yet, say the same thing. They have not seen the Prime Bonus offers for a while now. One tells he thaught that BF just had cancelled them, like they just get rid of everything else of worth buying .

    Haven't seen it on the US server in a very long while.

    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

  • There are still a lot of offers to buy Gold and get several extra %, but it is not Hot Deals that are missing. Only the Prime Bonus. Do you have any news Wabbit???

    I am waiting for the 60 fertilizer and 6 premium humus or the 20 fertilizer, 22000 dollars that come from spending 2000 for gold mining.  I want them to stop giving the 5000-200000 gold offers and give more of the 500-5000 gold offers.

    The Prime bonus was on NL1 yesterday.
    Can you tell whether it was one of the regulars or one pointed to temp farm??
    The Prime bonusses where you can earn what needs on the temp farms are still here, but not very often either.
  • grrr (NL1)grrr (NL1) Posts: 640NL1
    No, it was the regular one. It had been a while since I'd seen it I think, but as I don't use a lot of gold I wouldn't notice. I noticed this time because I'd read your post.

    prime bonusses i think are popping up all the time and 2 for1's aswell i see all kinds of offers pass 
  • grrr (NL1)grrr (NL1) Posts: 640NL1
    I think the prime spending bonus was meant, that doesn't come that often.

    I also I think that we are talking about the Prime Spending here - the one with the shopping bag on the icon, where you get more rewards, as you keep spending gold.

    We noticed that they stopped around the time that the WWC started, so we made inquiries a couple of weeks ago, it turned out that someone had just forgotten to schedule them & they did some right away. I personally noticed about 2 come up over next few days & then they stop again, so we have poked the team again about it.

    the number of times the answer to a problem is 'someone had forgotten' is frankly appalling

    im not saying it's not true, in fact, that it is true is more appalling than if it was just some excuse someone was making up

    and kinda does show that the game isnt really cared for anymore if the commonest problem we're up against is team members simply forgetting to do things that are basic to the game's running

    and if you think that's an exaggeration, look back over the last year of problems related to this game and how frequent 'someone forgot' has come up

    way too much "manual" about this game. it sounds like people have too much on their plate/overworked - recently many things have been "forgotten" to be started until we need to point them out
  • Does anyone know what is happening - the Prime Bonus is still not here, and we haven´t got an answer yet, whether they have died or is coming back . Please WW can you get the info for us??

    @mutterkjær (SKN1) The scheduling for this month has been a nightmare, which is why we put the warning on the events calendar & also why the smaller events have been a bit more random than usual & why the offers are not behaving like we are used to. They did not tell us exactly why it has been so bad this month, maybe one of the hamsters has died  :'(  But the CM says things should be much more back to normal next month & hopefully, in the meantime, he can get them to throw in a few more prime spending for this month.

    Thanks WW, but it really doesn´t matter anymore. I have mined the GML´s that I had, and as the game developes, there is no more hope for winning any GML´s except from the horse race. Sorry to be so negative, but it looks as if BF deliberately are going to ruin the fun of the game.

    I appreciate your effort to get back to me WW :)) and I really do not want to be so negative, but it is hard to not be, when you experience one after the other of all the good things disappear from the game. Still have some fun though, and I am looking forward to the day, when BF makes it right again :))

    maybe the nightmare is too many events going on at one time and right after each other - as well as un-needed changes to events and rewards...too much is blamed on being "manual" and where someone "forgot" ... just sayin'

    it's becoming a bit of a joke

    it was missing for ages a while back and was brought up on the forum, lo and behold, it came back for a few days (think it was one of those 'someone forgot to switch it on'....... for months?)

    goes missing for ages again and brought up on forum again, and again - 'it's back next week'

    see the problem is, mr hunter insists that the downgrading of hw rewards is not a tactic to reduce the quality of items we get for 'free', but when i see rubbish rewards (i presume the current hw is a blip) AND the 'free' stuff we got when spending gold is basically removed from the game, i see it exactly as what it looks like - ggs removing elements of the game that gave us 'free' quality stuff

    it's just another avenue to try and encourage gold buying/spending by reducing quality items like gml's and seaweed from the 'free' aspect of the game

     I think describing it as "it's becoming a bit of a joke" is very kind. I feel we drove past "it's becoming a bit of a joke" some time ago and its just a dot in the rear vision mirror now.

    Remember the Dec 2017 video



    Remember the Feb 2018 "Moving Froward"

    https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/173495/announcement-moving-forward

    For all the talk and text we have be given, the game seems to worse run and in worse condition that it ever was in 2017. Just look in the forum, constant daily complaints across all aspects of the game.

    The reason I take the time to highlight these issues is that I enjoy the game and its a shame to see something as good as this game was falling apart.

    i can't disagree with you, mark and i do remember the Twitch broadcast very well and it is coming back to haunt them

    and TMCK, funny you should mention gold and the dockyard, im not a big gold spender but when the original dockyard was running i bought regular, and for me, large amounts of gold (not for the dockyard itself) cos it made the game much more enjoyable and expansive

    then they nerfed it

    and my gold buying has been basically 0 since

    GGS doesn't seem to connect fun+gaming as a concept that makes players happy, and happy players spend more gold and you're more likely to keep them playing

    such a simple concept totally gone over their heads it seems
