    They posted it about the same time.  I suppose the CC's are better than another Fair.  The HW's are concerning.  WHy would we have 3 non-Coop, plain HW's in a row?

    do you mean because this one right now is a regular HW? and i am sure a lot of players would rather have 2 FHW then 2 CHW for a change sense we usually only get 1 of them if even 1 happens a month so i personal do not mind a HW then FHW then CHW then another FHW for march i mean we still have 3 CC and a part of the village fair for the coops

  •  I know all the events are optional and I don't have to play them. I can play the game without spending any real money as well. Unfortunately I am competitive, at least as much as my finances and sleep and work allow. But this calendar. GGS get your act together, There are actually white blanks left on this calendar. Surely you can fit something into those gaps between the ccs. A person could die of boredom waiting 2 or 3 days without a cc fix. Only 1 VF and i Gold fish event as well. I need more. St Patricks is great but what about another Oktoberfest. The Irish enjoy a drink just as much as the Germans do. I do have a minor complaint however, could you pleae move the pop ups to the top left corner when they pop up. They keep getting in my way when Im in a battle during a mission and they actually slow my money spending down.
    I spit my coffee out reading your post.

    Doesn't really matter where the popups show on the screen as far as getting in the way of play, as they are an overlay over the entire screen.
    You have to click the entire overlay (or whatever it's called in computer-speak) out of the way before you can do anything else.

    I don't mind the HWEs or the FHWEs, as they are individual events. They can be ignored by members who want to without impacting the co-op as a whole.
    It's the co-op ones that members feel pressured to do or they are letting the group down.

    i might be the only one but i am having a very hard telling which feed it is going to use for the re seeder if it is regular or super theses are not so bad but the premium and the  wet i think i call it fast feed but the stuff that takes 5min and 7min is very very hard for me to tell apart i dont know if you could put a P and a W on them in the re seeder display and make them a little bigger or what but if i take a couple our break and come back an click the harvest all even if i do have my lab and nursery going i still ant use the re seeder on pig and cows i have to do them manule first  because i cant rember if it was premium or fast as i call it and there is a big difference between 7 hours and 7min lol i have done it 2 times so far thinking it was the 7min but it was premium instead

    From what I can see

    There is 6-7 persons continually complaining about the CC's

    And its regularly the same players

    Of course, the players who enjoys the CC's are probably playing them, more than complaining on the forums :)

  • Exxy (INT1)Exxy (INT1) INT1 Posts: 2,597
    Well, When you are talking about being let down , you can talk for yourself

    I dont feel let down at all

    And yeah, you noticed i'm a positive person

    Whats the point of being doom and gloom non-stop?

    Its even worst than GG's decisions in my book, Your "Everything that GG does is crap" no matter what they do

    I love my convenience features, i love all the tweaks they are doing to add more strategy , i love that we can now upgrade all buildings to level 9 , without architect ( You have to plan what you want to upgrade first ) 
    Pretty sure, They are working on the village fair ( hence we get many CC )

    I enumerated all positive things

    No one is forcing you to play the CCs. If you are in a coop that demands you play them, go to another more causal coop.

    For Swift Seeder, there should be an option to ignore anything that requires gold, otherwise it is going to have limited applications for many, particularly on FF.

    Hahaha, this is exactly the reason I am not permanently in a coop, I don't like CC's personally, but some players like them far less often than they are being put onto the calendar.  Those players who are in coops who want to keep their standing in the ranks are forced to play.  GGS should listen to the player base so they can keep players happy.  CC's take way too much time to stay in them, constantly running, and stopping me from building my farm how I want to.  I do play for coops now and again, and there are plenty of people who want to be in a coop for the companionship they gain from it.  It still puts stress on the coops, because players feel they are letting their coop down if they don't play.   I'm all for them having their opinion, and complaints regarding the frequency of the CC event because they are entitled to it.
    Well said!

    My coop never asks me to play in CC's but i feel bad if i dont contribute atleast a few rep points from my side and that's why i would like to see coop frequency reduced . I just play for maybe one hour a day with stack on and that's it nowadays . When its frequency is reduced , i may get a bit more interest and play more and same is the case with many more people in my server .

    I for one nowadays cannot keep on sitting and harvesting throughout for 30 minutes because thats my play style . I login , collect(mainly in temp farms) whatever i need and then logout or if i am free , i can sit and chat with my coop members but not collect  ;)  like a mad lad for 5 days(and add to that so much waiting time for each mission) .

  • So many are sick of CC and mission even during CC I got a solo mission.  This is at 12PM when we should have plenty online.


  • artful (US1)artful (US1) US1 Posts: 6,514
    I've been getting a lot of solo missions, too. Odd thing is, some of them start immediately and not after the usual 5 minute search.

    Would this deco work only for the contracts on the main farm market, or it will work for the fishing market on the flower farm too?

    So sorry if our complaining about the CC frequency is annoying, perhaps we would desist if we felt we were heard.
    -
    I have started talking about it as I am lately getting so many members of 3 different co-ops with concerns about them. They do not come on the forums, so I have in a way become their voice.
    Feel free to count me as over a dozen.

  • Exxy (INT1)Exxy (INT1) INT1 Posts: 2,597
    Sorry GrammaLeah

    But it doesnt work like this

    I have not heard a single complaint in our coop of 69 people, does that mean, all 69 likes the frequency of the CC's , probably not 

    We have a coop that will be in the top 5 for the first time ever this CC ( assuming it will stay like this , but good chances )

    So in a way, its an opportunity for different people to get top rewards , if some people slows down 

    Sharing is caring

    Gold Lock?

    I saw a pop up when I came into the game today about a gold lock and got very excited, I skimmed it slightly more thoroughly than usual but didn't fully read it. I clicked dont show me this pop up again and cannot find any further info on it.

    My understanding was that if I hit the buy-with-gold button on something a secondary confirmation pop up should appear. It does not appear to work for me, I have sped production of a field and windmill without the secondary pop up.

    I asked coop mates, they speculate that either it is to prevent double clicking a gold purchased item or that it is strictly for mystery boxes (as once you have run out you can purchase more or 250). I cannot think of many functions for the former, except maybe buying fish crew with gold but that already has a second pop up window, and the later is such a specific instance idk why they'd bother and not expand that concept to all gold purchases?


    What did I miss? Is there a way to toggle it?

    I'm assuming this is the right thread.

    edit: see post below, thank you very much @Letty.liongamez (GB1) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The gold lock is not out yet. it will come in an update soon



     
    Made by  farmerjohn 22 (US1)  Thank you
  • Did I also read in the same message about the gold lock that we are now going to have unique events on the Deco Farm? I thought that was just extra storage. Is this why GGS are selling the new special seeds? Will we need these seeds/plants to participate in the Deco Farm unique events. Also it would be nice to be told when the next update is going to happen, don't just leave it hanging  there as if it were some secret squirrel activity. Informed people are happy people. (Well they're at least happier than uninformed people who try to guess what is going on because no one really tells us anything.)
