Meaning of a true coop

 Since the ML has started I have asked myself this question. I think a true coop is farmers loyal to their coop,they work hard everyday. They build up their farms and help the younger farms. They are there for each other through wins and loses.
 Since the ML has started this idea seems to have changed. Farmers go from coop to coop just for a chance to get into the ML. There is something about this mercenary work that I find unsettling. If you really want to go the the ML than work for it..earn it,don't just take it.
 The ML is not all that it is cracked up to be. It cost a fortune in cash,gold and resources. The prizes aren't really better,just different.  If it's prizes you want then I think the whole server should tell GGS we want better prizes.
 This is just my personal thought and I don't mean to ruffle feathers.

    I would enjoy playing in the ML. I'm a good player, but I have never been in the ML. Would be nice to see those rewards...My loyalty to a coop I stay in has always been a hard work for that coop..no matter in which coop I stay in...I think that is loyalty..even though the time spent in one coop is not very long.

    @farmer mc gee (US1) i know what you're talking about.

    in soccer there are people who are called "mercenaries" they get sign with clubs just to get money, not because they really like the club/team and want to give it 1000% to make sure they win.

    quite a few events are making people into "mercenaries" and i don't blame them, the game is a lot less fun when you don't have the same advantages as other players because your loyal to a coop instead of floating around getting better production buildings.

    There was lots of movement, the first couple times of the ML

    it is more calm for that nowadays , maybe the movements will start again with the next season

    its very steady in our coop tho :)
  • Very strange no comments from co-op hoppers that go where they can win the big one 
    in every event or the leaders that invite them just before events start ?
    A blind man see that happening.. i guess GGS is ok with that as long as they 
    are raking in the money from these gold buyers !!!!!

    i love the idea of coop hoppers it actually makes things a little fairer. of course the top 3 do good because they all have the best players because they win all the prizes. there players just usually like to stay because they are the ones that want the prizes. however there are the ones of us like me that were in the same coop sense they started and like are laid back coop and before the prizes were not really that big of deal. however some of us very good players are being punished for not belonging to a top 3 coop and it is not fair. so yes i have and will jump. the ones of you complaining are more then likely all in top 3 coops and have gotten too comfortable with just winning and not really having to try. however now that other coops are getting just as good of players as you have on loan.it is not nearly as easy for you to beat them. to me having players float might not be nice to all of you top coops which thought you had all the best players.now that all the single amazing players are joining top 5 coops and beating you. coop jumping as you all put it gives more players a opportunity to get the prizes and have more of a level playing field. it would take a lot of gold to buy the special buildings the top 3 get or a lot of WWC coins. and the fact that a top 5 coop gets so many extra WWC points anyways makes it unfair to anyone not in a top 5 coop.

    That is not true of the Travellers... they just pop in to help when asked for the up and coming coops.  Don't lump everyone in the same boat!

    Oh I agree that the Travelers are excellent Deb. I have seen their posts.

    But we aren't talking about travelers. There are co-op hoppers which I am pretty sure the co-op leaders agree to. And then there are players who simply abandon their co-ops for the big ranking co-ops.

    There is a vast difference.

    And then the big co-ops also poach good players  :(  Our co-op has had to deal with it

  • Exactly nola  that is what we talking about ...players rushing to another co-op for the big events 
    the ones that  spend the most real money on this broken game.  That is not winning that is greed .
    Furthermore trying to recruit the best players from another co-op that is despicable !!!!

    And it hurts when you have been friends for 3 plus years and get cut off like a cold fish,
    Luckily we still have some warm hearted genuine players in our co-op. 
    Our biggest players left to follow the riches to Masters league but the rest of us have stayed together and are still trying our best

    And  ... the funniest thing is ... before they got tired and needed to relax etcetera  .. If they had stayed in the co op that they had created their co op would be up there with the best of them on INT!.
    Greed is a terrible thing

    I can see both sides of this but, on the whole, I would take @amandaps (INT1)  view. (but then, I am not a co-op leader)

    Like @Uncle John (GB1) I to can see both sides. As I am co op leader I'm with @amandaps (INT1).
     I hope folks will stay with the co op, but no way am I going to beg them to stay, nor will I stand in their way if they wish to leave.

    totally agree with you @amandaps (INT1) :))
    people come and go. a coop is not a prison. someone stay someone goes looking for a change, and even if its only for rewards theres nothing bad in it. at least in the ML players have moved a lot, for curiosity, for rewards for experiencing a new event that is not easily accesible to every one and every coop. 
    and saying that..my coop is open to everyone that wants to come to experience an event, to get rewards they cant get with their own coops and at the end of it return back to their coops

    Ours, too. Players from large coops often join us for a bit of R&R before returning to their own coops. Players from small coops often join us just for events. It's all good. Players are not indentured servants. Just like a workplace, people come and go according to their needs.

    @Kitty Reed (US1) is not recruting when you invinte someone for an event, someone or a whole small coop, to join a big coop win those rewards they cant get and at the end of the event to return back to their coop. to me sounds as a favour but maybe im wrong
                                  
  • All I can do is laugh at some of these comments. Its beyond me how you can think that's fair game play. My coop is fair, we don't ask for coop jumpers to come help us. If we can't win it with what we got..we just take the lose. I barely can stand to even log the game anymore. I have been a gamer for years, played many different games..this kind of game play is frowned upon and most games will not allow it to even happen in the 1st place. Maybe GGS should change their name to "Lets destroy Big Farm". Might as well because that's what's happening right now.

    you are just mad cause you have to actually try now. the top 3 coops have always had the best players,because they have always gotten the best prizes. so of coarse that is were the best players will end up and if not good enough you kick them out and get better ones. then of course because you keep winning you.you keep winning all the special buildings. which we all know is giving you all more of a advantage,which is helping keep you in top 3. it is about time the top 3 coops actually have to try to be in top 3. i should not be punished for being in a lower coop,yet i am. i personally can put up Hugh points in VF i probably do better then a lot and yet with me doing the same amount of work i should have to get less because i am not in a top 3 coop? how exactly is that fair? i should have the right to help a coop going up against a different coop get better prizes i and everyone else still has to put in just as much work. the difference is being in a coop with players that actually play will get me more then in my very laid back coop. i should not have to pay 10x as much gold as you to get the special buildings as you when i can and do put in just as much work as you do. but yet love the coop i have been in sense i started which was like 4 years ago. i never even thought about going to a different coop to get the prizes in till WWC. but it is very hard to stay in top 20 up against all top 3 coops when my coop does not even get all the rewards or top 10 for the CC,that is a Hugh amount of WWC points. also special buildings take a lot less space. also special buildings help finish weekly faster which gives more WWC points. but i can see how finally getting competition could be a hard pill to swallow,sense you all just think it is guaranteed by now.

    EDIT: anytime YOU is used it was a general you not a personal one,i mean YOU as in top 3 coop players not any curtain player

    is someone in real life offers to everyone to do for 5 days the SAME work you do everyday BUT to get paid what you cant earn in a year in your normal everyday work, i guess everyone will ACCEPT. and nooone will talk of leak of moral and respect . but when the matter comes to a GAME,because this is only a GAME big words are said freely.instead of complaining for the bugs,for rewards we dont get and for 1000 other problems this game have
