    Wahoooo!  I just got a new decor off the wheel and just had to come here and read up.
    GG.... THANK YOU SO MUCH   I was really getting sick of the blue pagoda things over and over.
    Needed something new.

    As for all the other neat decor... love it all BUT.....
    (I know, always sticking my butt into it here.)

    My ONLY gripe about skins and new decor, (not so much decor) but building skins.
    One of the most fun things, for me at least, is arranging my farm.  I have my Asian section, my spooky corner and like that.  Impossible to do when say a hawaiian chicken coop comes out yet all my island type stuff is on my flower farm.   That would go well on the FLOWER farm but not possible to build a chicken coop there.
    Kinda messes with my decor.  

    I know this won't happen but going to toss it out there anyway. 
    Make themed skins for something that could possibly be on any farm. 
    Say I won an "island" themed skin.... I could opt to place it on a chicken coop, OR a goat thing, OR a house on the flower farm.  
    (The graphic designers might get some overtime... they are worth it.)
    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    did the medals compensation bit actually happen? because I have checked my medal store and there is nothing there.

    @Rocky123 (IN1) @taaj277 (IN1) @FastMunira (IN1) It is only on the ring menu that the full amount does not show & if you have 9,999 that is more than enough to start your stables/orchards.  When you are making regular items in your mills & silos or premium items in your lab, you can still hover your cursor over the picture to see how much you already have, so that you know what to produce. The change was necessary because some players had ring menus looking this, or worse....



    PCA (GB1) said:

    We received an amount of medals that is not even 25% of what we should have received had the problem not happened

    I assume you gave the same amount of medals to every player ?  Those who do not play and those who do, regardless of coop ranking in the village league ?

    Excellent job NOT as usual


    @PCA (GB1) I hear you, my own were more like 13% :/ We are making inquiries.  
    @WascallyWabbit  all i can say about the 9,999+ is what in the sam H.E+dbl toothpicks brain is fried now? i keep thinking  nothing can get more backa$$wards and then they do this  

    It SOUNDS like this might be a minuscule portion of some bigger idea  that has just been thrown in now  but GGS is unsure if the rest of the "idea" will play out or be mothballed or scrapped or if that dev with the "idea" will even remain with GGS thus leading back to if it will come to fruition , be mothballed or scrapped. AND thus the lack of explanation to players - just "here it is and btw you have to do more steps to find out actual #s"

    this is a huge reason that is so much tremendously poor coding and interminable glitches that ARE hard to track down 

    WAIT until you have a fully formed idea built!
    TEST it on the test server
    WORK out BUGS
    TEST AGAIN
    only IMPLEMENT into the regular game when it really passes rigorous testing

    this would be great!  but it probably won't happen.  Rearranging my farms is my favorite thing too and it's tricky to keep the farms themed.  :)  i would also like to move some decos from one farm to another.  maybe as a option from the Landscaper could pay to relocate the deco to a different farm.

    Seaweed is here, but certain 'rewards', such as greenhouse seed in bronze league, still here. Nevertheless the reward set is much better.

    Keep it up!

    People have asked to move deco from one farm to another for years now.  They won't do it.  Considered cheating.  I don't understand the logic.  Surely there could be a reconstruction time added which would fix any "cheat" problem of moving say a really good deco around.  Make it take a day to do... no problems.

    BTW... I found out later, that STUPID blue pagoda thing is still one of the prizes.  They just added three more. Got two of them and wow... cute yes.  Worth actually using?  Um, no.  sigh.  

    Now if only I'd win a blue mine cert as often as I win flower seeds which I NEVER use.  That would be great.
    Like most carnival games, this one seems rigged. 


    BY the way,  in that last spin, one of the prizes is a picture of red  poppies.   I have never once landed on that.  Anyone know what it is?

    the picture of the red poppies is a rustic appearance but if I remember correctly could be for various structures such as chicken coop, barn, house etc ...

    I personally dont like this new 9999+ thing

    How do we know how much sw feed/sw humus/ sw ferti do we spend without exact amount display ?
    It is irritating to go and check inventory everytime and so sometimes may end up overspending

    Everything is showing 9999+ :(
    I might have appreciated it when they displayed 99999+ for stock over 100.000 but this is annoying.

    Still not overly impressed by the set of rewards.....yes some seaweed is back and thats good but its still a big downgrade in comparison to what the rewards used to be. We are being constantly force-fed this CC event that many are sick of.....the least you could do is improve rewards, not downgrade them. At this point if I had a choice between scrapping the existence of construction tokens and bringing back the old set of rewards I would be up for it! Catalyzer rewards are almost a complete waste of time since many of us can't afford to upgrade labs to that level, why not add some million dollar + farmdollar rewards in the CC rewards set to bring lab upgrades into play??
    I agree with most of the points but catalyers are not useless .
    I have a level 25 farm lab and i go extremely short of catalyser everytime . GGS can even give more of them .

    Similarly when your lab reaches level 25 u will find it awesome usage for making tokens :)

    Yes but my point is many players can't afford to upgrade their labs to level 25. Catalyzers do have their uses but if GGS wants players to participate in an overplayed event like the CC they need to make it worth our while. You can;t increase its frequency and give us a downgraded version of a rewards system.....it just makes players even angrier! having farm dollars in a rewards list might interest some players, especially the ones that need that extra couple of million dollars for upgrades.......I don't even understand why goldflower seeds need to be in mystery boxes only. Why can't one of the hard work rewards be a couple of goldflowers?

    True :)
    They can give GML and goldflower seeds directly :) . They can keep all 4 types of catalysers as a single reward and add up dollars reward in those other 3 places . But these are too much to expect . 
    I m happy that they atleast gave some sw rewards  .

    @nannsi (SKN1) It just means anything that was changed on the other servers, will not be on yours yet, such as the new rewards in CC.

    Regular greenhouse seeds are useless until a second and third greenhouse is added.  
    Catalyzers are never used until the player saves up almost a billion dollars to get the lab to a high level or until lab prices are lowered by a lot.

    I personally don't find regular greenhouse seeds useless. Sometimes i run out of greenhouse humus (I never plant special greenhouse seeds without humus), so I can plant reg. seeds while I'm waiting. Also very useful during WWC when you need to keep the greenhouse running non-stop.

    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.

  • Your selling edge crop overages is a fail. It defaults to the full rubber crop instead of what is needed to make space.

    Also, I don't like the option of selling for village dollars. It gets in the way, another thing to accidentally miss click due to your sluggish client. I wanted this back when it first came out and it was a better deal to sell for village dollars instead of regular and exchanging. Now my coops exchange rate far exceeds the village dollar sell rate.

    Dear CuddlyFoxes,

    Thanks for your short answer. I would like to ask a bit bigger answer from you for our answers, because we dont get an answer why we got so less WWC coins if the servers ranking wasnt a point when the system calculate it.
    We play the same CC as the deutsch, italy, japan, russian etc servers, but the rewards is ther well known weak ones. We understand that we probably will get next week the update, but we are the same players as the other nation players, we are under other judgement. We would like to get a better detailed answers.
    We are looking forward to have a moderator, we know for sure that there was a few applicants, but they event dont get an answer, they wait months and months. We want to say thanks for your answers and hope that we will get positive answers too from you for our question. No problem if we need to wait for that 1 day.

    Cheers
    @MizuBige (HU1) We will have to ask the team about the WWC coins once they're back in office tomorrow. Today is a holiday in Germany & the office was closed. As soon as we hear anything we'll let you know :)

    If players have applied to be a mod but haven't received a response they should try contacting CM_Hunter or Keledar. It may be the case that they tried to contact a CM that is no longer here.
  • Don't care for the 9999+ on the ring because I can no longer make a mental note while I am feeding and fertilizing of what I need to produce next. Going to the farm menu is just another step and not convenient. Hope you change it back to the actual number,
  • CuddlyFoxesCuddlyFoxes Posts: 845Moderator, ModGreen
    Dear CuddlyFoxes and GGS,

    MizuBige has right. She said that we all feel. 

    We didn't ask and we didn't want this html5 test on our server. GGS will give NOTHING for our work. 

    But not this is the biggest problem.

    The biggest problem is that GGS hurted our rights.

    This html5 test is a DISCRIMINATION. As I know Hungary is member of EU, and you have to give the same service in all countries of EU. The same as in Germany, GB, or other countries you like better than Hungary. If you don't do it, you discriminate.

    I started to write my letter to those in Bruxelles whose duty to examine if hungarian players were discriminated or not. I'm sure that we were discriminated. And we are discriminated today also. And as you wrote we will be discriminated till we don't get the update next week. As we know GGS that could be more than few days..... But if a miracle happen and we get the update this gives us nothing, because the only good thing in this update was the changing of CC's rewards.

    You posted the forum link, but no one will read it from GGS, because it's Hungarian. No one understand our language except us. So please stop mystification.

    We had enough. We WANT compensation. Valuable compensation, not chicken foods.

    @Eowyn12 (HU1) We'll forward your feedback to the team. I can assure you that we are checking that thread & reporting any issues reported there. :)
