    It seems alright now that i've played a few challenges but when you compare this list of rewards to what we were getting in the old medal setup its yet another severe downgrade. I bought 1000 seaweed with medals per week, now that's gone so what is the point of having a lab?

    my point exactly, medals were useful. I produced 100-200 seaweed feed each week with seaweed, not a lot but I upgraded the laboratory for this and now its gone. And what do we get in change ?  A pile of garbage topped with a deco

    So the Village Fair started and my Viking Farm disappeared.  I thought we had 7 more days to finish the Viking Farm.  What happened???
    Mine is still there. Try refreshing AGAIN!!! Hate this lag.


  • i can see my opion will not be a popular one but i really like this village fair except for the lag other then the village league and the Santa event i can not think of a event that actually uses the whole coop working together as a team i know you say what about the CC but really with the CC you are doing your own thing then it adds to the coop for example in my coop i have one member that gets a lot over 1mill points and a couple that get mil but a lot dont and some even less then 50k so really that is not the whole coop working together and honestly it is time consuming and annoying waiting the 30min to collect the same thing then just to get some points so i personally do not do very well in the CC however with the village fair if you are doing the shorter ones they are changing so mabe you need eggs but you dont have any ready if that was a mission for the CC you would not get any points for your coop but now maybe some other members have eggs ready and guess what your coop gets points and if it is always changing i can go watch a hour show come back see what the callange is if i have it great i collect and i can go back to watching tv and yet i can feel like i helped well as a mission if you want to get good enough points you need to be there collecting for the whole 30min so i like this so much better cause even the players that can only play 30min or a hour a day can feel like they are really helping unlike the CC and i also find it a lot less stressful then the CC seeing how if i dont have something needed it is not a whole wast for 30min like with a mission because there is a good chance the other members in the coop can get it done 
    everybody is entitled to their opinion :smile: -- just keep me posted because i'll be curious if you say this after let's say 1 day -- i'm not being rude -- it's just a lot of ppl said it at first then after like 1 hour they changed their minds -- i'm actually looking forward to the CC now after this big mess (and, i thought i would never say that)

  • Have a member of my coop telling, that her dog cannot be fed anymore. It keeps barking no matter how many times she clicks on it.

    Perhaps she is on labour pain. Your member is lucky. Going to have a puppy free of cost.  :D
    too hilarious -- i want my doggie and kitty to have puppies and kittens
    I'll take puppies for a reward over another useless deco. I want them multi-colored also. 

    I love to click on my doggy and rub his belly. You should try it. Cute, unlike the reality of this VF.

    Only about 3 or 4 of our members are putting any effort in to it. The prizes make the CCs look like they are handing out diamonds. Still, for those who don't want any part of it, there is something to be said for just starting a challenge then walking off to farm normally. I can already see that the prizes from the rewards shop (for doing nothing) were far more valuable than these will ever be, even if the whole coop puts their all into it.

    i am different then most people and i am ok with that the way i play and the way i enjoy things on here are a lot different that is why i know my opion would not be popular but i am positive my opion is not going to change because of the event game design i suffer from depression and it has been bad lately and i am not saying this for any other reason then to show how it effects my game play i have not been able to get myself to play in the last 3 CC and i have felt like a complete failure and a horrible leader and like i have let my coop down but with this event even if i could just get myself to log in 5min at a time several times a day i would be helping so much more then i ever could with a CC that way because this event is built and designed differently it is not necessarily built for the players that can play for hours at a time or have a whole lot of gold like almost all events are with this event the people that cant play much for whatever there reason can still feel like they are actually helping there coop out and contributing and i will add because most of you dont know what kind of player i am up intill about a month ago i played any were between 8 to 12 hours a day everyday if not more and did not miss a single day for over 2 years so this is not just a opion from a casual player so about the only thing that will change my opion is the lag cause i am not a patient person also i have played for over 3 years i think and have ran the coop that was handed down to me about that long and over that time i have had a lot of players tell me how bad they have felt because they did not think they could help with the CC as much weather they are lower level or cant play much and i dont think think this event will make those players feel tat way as much they can actually see them and rest of the coop adding to the total and accomplishing something instead of always coming in last in a mission not getting a lot of points

    First, I did love the time granularity.  I was able to pick one that ends at a certain time, when I knew me or deputies could start another one.  This great!

    I am favorably disposed so far, BUT

    Are there not going to be cash boosters?.....100 gold per minute adds up very fast.

    Does this mean that members are unable to search and start challenges?  So hope it is just leaders and deputies.
    I laugh at this idea. Someone started a challenge called BRAT PACK! Really? We are not that big. Of course they will never say who did it. I can't even begin to say what a waste this one is with our resources, so we're letting the time run out with regular farming and gaining points that way. Ridiculous. Change it so ONLY the people chosen by the pres can start it. When you have more deputies than regular members results are just as bad.

    Well then I guess in your case it should just be your leader that starts these challenges.   ;)

    Unfortunately this feels like excruciating exercise in patience just to perform regular farming tasks.
    We cannot do anything but wait for the current challenge to complete.

    At this point I can really see us doing the short 30 min challenges because it's very difficult to get into a game that runs so slowly...

    And we have a challenge that is asking for 680K in pigs and over 70K in pasta baskets. Really?! In 10 hours I am not going to even make 1 batch of pasta baskets (or any, ever). What a really bizarre new feature.

    this is why my opion is different it is all the way you look at the event you get points for everything you collect whether you finish the challenge or not you just get bonce points for collecting them all unless you are a very good mission player for the CC you dont always come in first place do you? the point to this event is not to always finish each challenge it is to collect as many points as you can by farming just like missions sometimes your group will complete them all and get extra points and sometimes not

    New problem reported by members. The lag, crashing, and freezing when a challenge is going on has gotten to be unbearable. It disappears when there isn't a challenge going on. We're all on different devices and are using different browsers. So, our original plan to keep challenges running isn't going to happen. We're having to walk away from this.

    Mods please look at this and tell me how is it possible to complete such a task.How come the baskets are all frm flower farm.Surprising!!!!!!!!!!.
    Even with 100 members in a coop which includes the highest lvls and the lowest lvls nobody would have a well developed flower farm to collect so much in 13 hours .While programing and creating an event think about the viability of the task too.
    If this event is meant for skipping much than its a lost cause because nobody will skip so much when its impossible.Review and rework this event and make it interesting and worth playing.

    So we have to put off collection of all long-duration products until we get a favourable challenge (hopefully)?

    That's very bad and frustrating.  :(:(

    There are some worthwhile rewards there, the gold boxes at the end given out for coop ranks. The problem here is that a seemingly generous reward at the end will probably not last. Other events started with decent rewards at the beginning (the fishing hardworker, regular and coop hardworker, deep sea fishing) but then a few months later GGS came out with that dreaded re-balance and ruined it for us all. I dread this even will head in that same direction. The first few months will be reasonably generous just to lure us in and then GGS will take it away.

    I'll try to be constructive.....two problems I see with this event in its current state.
    1. Terrible lag/unplayable at times when challenge is running
    2. Boosters........you earn a certain percentage in a challenge and it states your totals in next challenge will be boosted and then it doesn't work. It seems to be a booster that will only work if u activate it with gold and thats just greedy on GGS's part.

    And finally the fourth problem: It does not worth playing.  ;)

    The took matured malt whiskey from an old bottle. Poured it on a bowl. Added some distilled water to it, (and some methylated spirit too I suspect). Sealed it in a larger bottle. Pasted some eye-catching label on the bottle.

    And trying to sell it at 10-fold price.

    Thats called innovation!!!!!

  • Village fair is a new addition so there WILL BE issues that need resolving.

    personally I think it has potential, but currently not worth playing. I think it Should of rolled out as a BETA version IMO to check out issues and test if players like it. 

    I like the rebalance of the game kind of i.e no seaweed/weekly medals

    Next CC and CHWE should be a bit more fun for co-ops that don't generate huge amounts of seaweed feed through weekly medals, the way it used to be was only the top co-ops win boosters/medals to give them a huge advantage for the next event.

    I`m just looking at the big picture here :o
