    The 2026 world cup will be jointly hosted by Mexico USA and Canada. So maybe you will hear more about it in the next 8 years.
    Maybe, anyhow I wish to thank the Game Team for the 2018 Cow I just got , even though I am not doing this Event, I will hopefully be able to place it on the New Farm if we ever get it that is, as I am still waiting for it to show up, :)

    Why not just stick your Whistles on the favourites, those with the shortest odds. Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France
    What does shortest odds mean?  I am not a sports fan at all, lol.  Little league with my boys when they were younger and that was it, lol.

    I know what you mean, I am more into Movies and Music, so I am also not a Sports fan, I watch skating once in a while on My computer cause I do not have a TV, that's bout it, :)

    @artmaker  "wimpier?" ... more rough and tumble, in my honest opinion. Plus, we get to see all those lovely guys in shorts and not all armored up like transformers. More finesse required, too.

    The thing I do like about this event is no real participation required -- just farm as usual and you get some goodies. So, if you want to coast like me, it's a no brainer.

    My one complaint is that they didn't make the whistles all silver and shiny like the milk cans -- just dull charcoal grey. 
    Well I probably shouldn't have stuck "wimpier" in there.  I know it's a sport like all the others.  However, men dancing around in shorts who all by the goalie can't even touch the ball with their hands just looks wimpy to me.
    Compared to a few 350lb linebackers hell bent on stopping each other or catching up with who has the ball and throwing the opponent to the ground MUCH tougher.  No shorts, but lots of "tight ends."  lol.
    Still... I only watch THAT football with my husband.  And only when our team is playing.  (Last few years the bears have been hibernating so the season of football was a short one.)

    Back to THIS game.... I left on page 6 and already I see lots of confusion posts, screen shots with question marks, see? Too much thrown at us in this once, that doesn't work or lacks instructions to this simple game of balance and growth.   Never was this put on the test server, and no not to test for bugs, you can do that in house (wish you would start soon.)  But test on real people and get a feel for how well liked or DISliked something will be.

    Better still, if an event IS disliked, please give the players a way to click one button and make it go away.
    Gees even the welcome screen has to have this STUPID sports field on it?  Sure lots of people are sports fans.
    Lots are NOT.  To me it's just men playing with their balls.  KIDS play sports.  I played sports.  Then I grew up.

    Seriously.  The free stuff just for playing is one thing but prizes popping up in the middle of the screen almost non stop makes actually farming a royal pain.  This is already a huge click fest.  I lost count yesterday how many times I'd try to harvest one thing only to have all the junk from previous stuff flying around, missing my click, then a "you won..." thing pops up, again missed my click.   I usually play twice a day.  Skipped this completely last night.   Probably will be skipping it more until this dumb "sports season" IS OVER.
    At least this rolled out in spring.  Lots more to do than sit on the computer.  So no biggie. 
    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    @Artmaker (GB1)  Soooo, agree that an opt-out button for all events would be lovely. Also agree with the pop ups. I was hoping the side notifications like they developed for the WWC would be used for all things from that point forward, but apparently not.

  • Well, my soccer event is buggy...the last page still shows the first match and the timer hasn't changed....some have the same problem and some don't.....AU co-op is the same also.

    I'm not getting anything anymore in the way of rewards that I can tell    :'( 

    Just thought I'd let you know...I was enjoying the event some...but you need to downsize the soccer balls, please.

    And to think that I started playing this game to grow corn & harvest apples. Little did I know that I would be deep sea fishing, rescuing goldfish, playing SNAP, breeding & racing horses, making candy, spinning the wheel of fortune & now we are placing bets & gambling........silly me for not initially grasping what farming was really about......LOL

    For the record......this soccer thing is even sillier than I. Thank goodness it is optional & not something that will hurt my coop if I do not indulge. Being American, I know very little about soccer & find the sport boring......just like this event......but then Big Farm is a worldwide game & sometimes I need to remind myself of that fact.

    I am happy to see that some are enjoying the event. Play on........& good luck :)

    I'm not a big fan of NFL - but a tremendous fan of soccer - or as we call here - Fodbold = football.  B)

    No other sports gives me pleasure & sorrows like Fodbold - many players are pure artists in handling the ball - with their feet, - I'm willing to travel to see, one of my teams play. (I have a danish, I have a english and I have a spanish team-who I follow when I can - and for sure always on tv.)
    And the worldcup is a feast :)

    BUT: I have always wondered, why American Football, was called anything with the word football involved - when I think it should have been called Handball..
    Then again Handball is a sport already..., at least since late 1800's
    All I see, is heavy people pushing eachother around, and way too tight pants for grown up men (eek) - you wanna fight okay- but not on my TV (which is a little lie, since my man like it, and we have been hosting Superbowl several times for friends with similar interest) :)

    So I did some reading :)

     - we go as long back as the chinese 2000 years ago stuffing balls with hair, playing them.

    Mongols, used eneymy heads indstead of balls, after carnivals or raids.

    In the 16th century the italians had football tournaments - ours alike, but not as formalized as the brits managed to do in 1863. where The International Football Association Board was formed (now known as FA)

    - at that time they hosted 2 games:  Football and Rugby (called Soccer and Rugby was called Rugger instead of the long official name of the association)  - but as the games evolved they needed to split up, into two associations.
    Over years the brits stopped calling it soccer (as far as I know, it's not even in their dictionary any longer),
    - since that was just short for association football, but when the american soldiers came back home from europe  they brought this word - and that's why you use it a lot - and  europeans only when in company with americans :smile:

    From Wiki:
    American football evolved in the United States, originating from the sports of association football (known in the U.S. as soccer) and rugby football. The first match of American football was played on November 6, 1869

    So this is why american football is called football even if it has little to do with real football   
    Put on the 'yes-hat' and give your self a chance to watch some fantastic matches along the way :wink:

    Like a lot of players, I don't know much about soccer, or really care about it. Just going with the flow in the event and seeing what happens. Maybe pick up some goodies along the way.  ;)

    If you have to attack me personally then send me a message personally.  This hardly belongs in the forums.
    Your right about one thing.  Over all I like this game or I wouldn't be on it as long as I have.
    However I have every right, as does everyone else, to voice an opinion when I don't like something.
    GG hardly needs praise when they got it right.  If something is popular, people, (me included) are happy to just play and not come to the forums at all.
    It's when new stuff shows up and the ONLY way to figure it out is here, or when something is broken, again better to find out here (support is all but useless.) 
    So you may see mostly griping from me.  So sorry to ruin your day.  Get over it.  I see griping about this event from lots of people.  What's your beef with me?

    I still think SPORTS has absolutely ZERO TO DO WITH A FARM GAME!
    Already there are posts (in other threads) from other people who are also not sports fans.

    Bottom line, when GG launches something I hate, and this one has locked up my farms several times now all while trying to do the CC thing.   It's time to walk away.   Some things like the coop village I can just ignore. But this one keeps tossing up garbage all over the place.  How does harvesting corn produce balls and whistles?   It's just stupid.
    Logging off.... out to my garden. NO ONE moving a ball back and forth there either. (Sports is such a total waste of energy.  And yet people say "why are we exploring space when people are starving on Earth? Makes me crazy.  How much is spent moving a ball back and forth in assorted courts, fields, stadiums, rinks etc etc etc etc...... Paying adults insane amounts of money to play a game.  Not to mention all the garbage to buy with "your team" name on it.  The whole industry is stupid.) 


    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    It should be against the rules to flag a comment that is full of truths........... I have been on the other side of your rudeness in the past. I am sure you have no recollection but no worries. Flag away.........
    Or just do what I did a long time ago..

    So the last match Portugal and Spain just finished, is that it for the day?  I guess I am liking this a little bit even though I am not a sports fanatic, lol.

    You can only win them as HW prizes.  Spending gold on turf advances the booster also.

    You're right. I should have mentioned that you can win them as prizes. However, at any time, you can also buy the seeds with gold from  the plant menu.

    Gold.


    Classic!! The answer comes straight out of the captain obvious handbook, after all, this is Good Grief  Systems, and the answer is nearly always Gold. Also the Gold button is right there when you go to plant.

    I can only guess they meant non Gold way to get seeds

    I agree with you when you say sport has nothing to do with farming but don't understand why you say space exploration is a waste of time? Wouldn't it make sense to see potential threats coming from space (asteroids) months even years in advance to give the human race a chance to defend itself? Starving will be the least of our worries then, not to mention the climate is changing so more bad things could potentially happen in the future....its better to be prepared or is the earth flat? Don't get me started on those people!

    Back on topic, after the initial negativity (the server crashes and the first frustrating bug riddled hour or two) i'm pleasantly surprised by this event. I have 0 interest in soccer, i've seen more manly acts in a game of netball to be honest but being able to obtain a few extra rewards on a fluke bet isn't a bad thing. I hope the turf seeds is the start of something else......maybe more variety in things we can grow, eg tomato pumpkin carrot watermelon....it is a farming game after all right? This is a good event so thank you GGS

    Thanks for the update.  Could you let them know the timers are off in DSF and the FF?  I can have everything ready to go with no green light.  Or, I can have soap ready in 2 minutes but the distillery that doesn't finish for 25 minutes is what shows instead.  It is everywhere on these farms.  DSF, I can have a boat ready to come in around 2 minutes and it shows the one coming in at 6 hours away.  I can also have boats sitting at the dock ready to unload and the timer doesn't show green.  Most often what occurs is the boat I just sent out with 13 hours before return will show as next but I have 5 boats ready to come in within minutes.  Exiting to another farm does not fix this problem.  Thanks, Suzy!

    Update to add screen print of issue.  The timer on FF says the Olive Oil will be finished around 15 minutes, but I clearly have soap and gardens ready to go.  Kind of hard to keep up when the timer isn't working properly.



    Olive oil still coming in.  Clearing cache, cookies etc does not fix it.  Logging out and back in doesn't fix it.  Once in a while it catches up with itself.  But it is also intermittent in other farms too.


    Next screen shot, timer said soap was next, as you can see I had mermaid bay and turf grass to collect.  I collected both and replanted turf grass, the timer now says turf grass is next.  Yet the soap is next.  So, as you can see this is an ongoing problem and has been for quite a while now.




    And one more thing if I may?  Thanks so much for the update, but yes, many of us don't like the "non farm" related activities.  We could use things that really are farm related and not just have use of our farms to do the non related events.  Other farm animals, more crops, etc.  There are so many farm related activities which could be added to the game for us.

    Probably sidestepping this conversation, but what do we do with stadion gras, I have maxed out and get surplus now. Is the only alternativ to sell it?

    heh and I agree, football is not (!) my cup of tea at all. This game has been my rescue when hubby is glued to the TV watching the ball and players run from one end to the other. I am not amused by this event at all.

    Cheers :smile:
