You have really made something right this time GGS. Your Football Fever event is just great and I don't even like football in real life...
The connection between real life happenings and the game is something new and very successful indeed. I hope to see something like this also in the future, in the meanwhile I will enjoy this event.  :D

Well done!!!

    Furthermore since the event has launched, this will presumably free up the programmers, so I'm hoping all the games issues will be fixed next week.

    I'm also hoping this  :¬)

    Game interaction with a real event is a great idea, and an event that is followed across the globe like a world cup is a great choice

    Looking forward to more events like this one and less mind-numbing competitions

    It could have been cool to launch also the horse tournament with a football theme and offer decos and avatars accordingly.  The pirate theme is good for any tournament

    Congratulations GGS on designing an event in which the design forces the player to gamble on international football matches to do well in the event. You have a nice big pseudo online casino now to taunt what few players you still have left. Sure the players are not forced to spend real money on virtual gold, and when they do, they are then not forced to buy virtual chips to gamble with, so that's why I call it "pseudo" and no doubt that is why you avoid casino taxations and regulations. very effective and very clever. Congratulations alright.  

     Good bye to my farm after all these years.  Good luck to those who remain I think you will need it.

    Hi all! So glad to hear you're all enjoying the event. The team is very happy with the event and it seems most of you are too! So my sincere thanks for your comments as always, they're important whether they're negative or positive but it's great to see so many positive comments about this event.

    In regard to questions about the outstanding things we mentioned, they are still planned to be completed! The gold lock is still on the table and hasn't been forgotten about and the XP booster and edge plant issues are the number 1 priority on the Community Team's list to resolve. I know it's tough but we too are waiting patiently for a slot we can get these things put into and as soon as that slot arrives we'll do everything we can to get those things which are important to you sorted out. It's a matter of when, and though I don't have any solid info on that 'when' just yet I will be sure to let you all know as soon as news comes my way.

    For now, good luck in the World Cup and thanks again all!

    Although, if they say the issues with edge plants, etc., are number one priority, yet they are "waiting for a slot," then technically they aren't "number one priority." :)

     Also, please could someone from GGS tell us why the horse trainer is AWOL. Someone from management needs to "MANAGE" to make sure things are working on the weekends, too. Having things go wrong on weekends seems to be a given, yet no one is around to put things right. Again, no one seems to be effectively managing the game.

    As one of our members pointed out, someone is working to update the FIFA scores, so surely that person can flip the switch for events that should be happening, but aren't.

    @CM_Hunter could you please make a 'small announcement' of the above.
     That info/update is way offtopic here (imho!) - and since many/most?  players,  don't have enough patience to go through every thread here, it won't cover what needs to be communicated from you to us.

    So as a service, that would be really, really nice.

    just saying..

    From the programming I've done both the issues seem like they should be easy fixes.

    Missing Double XP points, You scan thru the data set prior to the hotfix (assuming you have it & it's not lost) and credit that value to the current Double XP value. Fixed. You can then try and fix the original problem the programmers caused which was over crediting Double XP points to some players if you want to.

    Edge Plant Bonus not working. Programming suggests:

    Edge plant total = Edge plants grown + Edge plant Bonus.

    1. How do you even manage break that?
    2. How come you can't spare 5 minutes to fix it?

    To me, not fixing these simple issues, affects the overall credibility of the game.

    Hi @aussie_mark (AU1) , thanks for the tips but the issue is not in how to fix the problems. As I said we are waiting for a slot and as soon as that appears we'll have more information for you about the repairs and when they will happen.

    @didah (SKN1) I've left this same information in a few places but would prefer to bring more official news when there is some to bring. Once we have a confirmed slot we will be sure to let you all know but I don't want to raise hopes that news as finally come when the news is pretty much 'no news just yet'.

    @artful (US1), the intent was to say that it is a number one priority on the CM list, that's not to say it isn't taken seriously by the team but it does mean we have to be patient. The scores are not manually updated in the event, this is done by a system we built for that purpose and doesn't equate to event planning, which is what you're talking about in terms of the summer events and bonuses. Those are planned in manually and so it's not as simple as updating the football scores unfortunately. But we have and will plan in more summer events over the coming weekends, it just won't be as consistent as it has been in the past.

    Enjoy World Cup fever for now, how many of you are basing your picks on our Oracle Dogs? How has it worked out for you? And which country do you think is going to be the overall winner of the tournament? It's still early but some surprises have already been emerging so what do you think?

    G'day CM_Hunter

    That's great news, wonderful to hear.

    It'd be great if a slot could be found to fix the farm event timers on the right hand side of the game screen, Looking through the forum they have only been problematic for around 2 years, but if they could be fixed also, it'd be fantastic. I know its asking a lot.

    It does grow on you, doesn't it?  And I love the way the fields turn into football patches when ready for harvest.

    The thing I enjoy the most is that unlike other events, it's not intrusive -- doesn't disrupt regular game play (except for growing a little turf now and then), and it's not dependent on team work.

    I am sorry this event is over. I enjoyed it immensely!!! Awesome job GGS, bringing us a great event !! Thank you!
  • I agree, it was fun and I got lots of rewards along the way. I couldn't make it to the top 100 in ranks though so I missed out on a ranking reward, but it was still fun.
