The Farmers League is on the horizon!

Farmers League

Hello Farmers,

This is the Racing Farmer broadcasting live from the stage on your farm!

I’m Rita Mercury with today’s big story!

It is a special day here on Big Farm, as we are watching and participating in the making of history! The brand-new “Farmers League” is about to commence with veterans and rookie farmers from around the globe competing for top prizes and all-important bragging rights!

So, let me quickly explain how the Farmers League works!

First, we have five league events that can relate to a season of the Farmers League. However, the number and type of events will differ between each League season. By participating in each event, you can earn event points which determine your position in the division rankings. Based on your current division ranking, you will receive a medal each day which will help you earn title promotions and define your position in the final season ranking. As you progress from title to title, you will have the chance to receive better and more valuable rewards during the current season.

The Farmers League kicks-off TODAY  between 10:00 -10:30 CEST (depending on server) - Fishing Hard Worker Event also starts today! Other events will follow during the League season.

Let’s get this show on the road!

Go, farmers, Go!

    "Last Chance" dialogue for Summer Monument Coins



    Hello farmers,

    We want to inform you about the Summer coins that can be spent on the Summer 2019 monument.

    There will be the last chance dialogue after the end of the current season. In the dialogue, you have the last chance to spend coins on the monument or convert them into dollars. That means you are not able to carry over any summer coins to the next summer season.

    The current season is due to end on 28th September 2019.


    We apologise for the last-minute communication on this topic.

    Schedule Change for Temporary Farm


    Hello Farmers,

    We want to let you know that the next temporary farm will start in the middle of October instead of the beginning of the month. And the new event, Dream World, will start at the beginning of October. 

    The reasons for this change are due to the fact that we want to avoid having two long term events starting on the same day, and we want to make sure that farmers have enough time to enjoy both of the events.

    Please keep in mind that future event scheduling will also be affected by this change. Therefore, you can expect that the Dream World will start at the beginning of a month, and all temporary farms will start in the middle of a month.

    Recurring Summer Monument Finisher




    Hello farmers,

    We are aware of the issue regarding the recurring of the finisher of the summer monument. Unfortunately, we will not be able to kill the finisher because it may affect other mechanisms within the event.

    The finisher will end at 9:30 CEST on the 29th Sep.

    We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    FL Division Rankings (Following Oct 5th Downtime)



    Hello farmers,

    We are aware of the issue regarding the division ranking of the farmers League where remaining points/medals of one of the previous Hardworker events are displayed. Unfortunately, we will not be able to correct the current division ranking because it may cause other issues within both events. The points displayed in the division ranking should be reset once the player starts the Hardworker Event and medals should be granted at the daily medal payout according to the division ranking.

    There is no compensation planned at this point.
    We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Village Fair is Revamped!

    New Village Fair


    Greetings BigFarmers!


    The Big Farm Village Fair is starting today with some bold twists!

    Roll up, roll up! It's party time on Big Farm as all the fun and festivities of the fair have finally arrived.

    From this run on, both the cooperative event rewards and the hard work rewards are refreshed, offering more valuable decorations, appearances and items. Addition to this, the Village Fair Wheel of Fortune rewards have also been revamped to a new level. Sounds exciting? We are sure you will love all the changes!

    One more significant change we have made is that the required goods in each challenge have been reduced quite a bit. So your Co-op members should manage to deliver products with much less effort, compared to the previous version of the event.  

    Select challenges and work closely with your Co-op members to earn rewards by delivering as many farm products as possible!




    Details of the changes:

    • Matchmaking for each division in a league is now random, so, for example, if there are three divisions in the diamond league & coop (A) is added to division 1 in the current run, for the next run, Coop (A) could be added to another division (or to division 1 again) if they are still in the diamond league.
    • The required number of products to deliver in each challenge is now reduced.
    • The cooperative reward tier is extended from the top 10 cooperatives, to the top 15.
    • The activity reward line has been changed from the single player to the cooperative, so each activity reward will be granted, depending on points that the Coop earns.
    • Rewards from the Village Fair WoF have been adjusted.

     Welcome to the Winter Season on the New Viking Farm!



    Hello Farmers, 

    While you are out on your farm, your hands feel frozen without gloves, and then you realise that winter is slowly on its way, as is our snowy adventure: the Viking Farm. 

    Nils Nordson awaits your arrival at the newly revamped Viking Farm! You will see all sorts of fantastic changes such as new ranking rewards, more activity rewards and new production recipes. There is much more to discover! 


    Top Ranking Rewards:

    Winter Cottage
    #1 will win a new winter-themed residential: Winter Cottage. 



    Versatile fruit plantation

    #1 to #5 will have the chance to get a new “Versatile fruit plantation” that can produce citrus fruits or olives on the flower farm.

    Isn’t that exciting!? Get dressed with warmer outfits and ready for the winter adventure!

    The New Viking Farm is starting TODAY!


    Details of the changes & adjustments:


    • The ranking rewards have been improved, and more players the tiers of the rewards have been extended. Now, the top thousand players have the chance to win unique ranking rewards. 
    • The activity reward line has been extended. Now, there are fifty thresholds. Including WWC points, you have fifty-three thresholds in total. 
    • The daily quests will be introduced. Tasks in each quest vary depending on your farm level. Completing each daily quest will give you a bunch of useful items that help to progress the event quicker.
    • The chapter quests have been adjusted, so the last quest of each chapter will offer you reward decorations (e.g. Humble dragon ship) with new values. 
    • The construction slot of the Viking farm is unlocked right from the start. 
    • The Repeat harvester and the Turbo harvester are available.
    • Both rounds of the “Winter Night farm Wheel of Fortune” will offer the chance to win premium items as well as resources. 
    • The whole farm production economy has been reworked to make a more engaging chain out of the existing farm products. The new production economy should be easier to understand in terms of numbers but also easier to expand.  
    • The number of the produce of the Winter field, each kind of the stables and orchards has increased. And, the production time has been reduced. Also, special seeds for each product will be available from this run. 
    • Library books for the Viking farm products have been improved to align with the new production economy and outcome.  

    You can discuss the new Viking Farm here: New Viking Farm!


    Happy farming
    Your BF team.

    Oktoberfest & Village Fair Rewards


    Hello Farmers,

    We received reports that the choosable reward at the end of the Oktoberfest event credited an appearance item instead of one "Friendship meadow" or something that you selected.
    We apologise for the issue and thank you so much for your patience with us as we finalised the details for you.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to replace the added item with the correct reward automatically. Therefore, we need to ask you to contact our support team. Our support team will investigate each case and add a  correct reward accordingly.

    As you submit a ticket to us, please follow the instruction below and include necessary information.  
    1. select "in-game loss" from the SUBJECT dropdown list.
    2. write down "Oktoberfest" and tell us which reward item is still missing under the first question "List the exact amount, name/s and location of items lost"

    Here is an example ticket:


    Note: If you don't include the information above, please be aware that a response from our support team may take more time.


    Thank you and happy farming!

    CC Master League Rewards


    Hello farmers,

    We are aware of the issue regarding the rewards of the last Cooperative Championship where the Co-op ranking rewards were not credited correctly to some cooperatives at the end of the event. Today, we will compensate affected cooperatives with their correct rewards.

    The compensation details look like the following:
    - All cooperatives in the Master League will receive the correct ranking rewards.
    - Players in those cooperatives who won the cooperative internal ranking reward will receive the correct rewards.

    We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Your Big Farm team

  • EN1 & SKN1

    (+ DE, PL, RU, SK)

    We were aware that some cooperatives in the lower leagues on the following servers - DE, PL, RU, EN, SK and SKN, were also affected by the issue, and we have added rewards to those who were eligible for the rewards.

    Since it was difficult for us to state each case, we have created reward packages, depending on the leagues and ranking positions, and they are equivalent to the rewards that the event offers. So, every player has been eligible to receive those rewards will be informed via an in-game message, which tells what type of rewards they get.

    Furthermore, as the cooperative internal reward, we have added one same package,
    Seaweed feed x 100,
    Seaweed humus x 5,
    to all eligible players.


    We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

     Issue with the Halloween Search Event - Missing Pumpkins



    Hello Farmers, 

    We apologise for the issue with the Halloween Search event where pumpkins did not spawn correctly last two days. After the downtime yesterday, the problem has been fixed, and we can confirm that the collected pumpkins from yesterday were reset at 10:00 CEST today. 
     
    Farmers who were affected by this issue most likely lost max. 2 days of the event, meaning they were unable to collect 70 pumpkins. If they had collected some on the first day, then they should be able to reach at least 245 pumpkins by the end of the event. If you can collect at least 245  pumpkins, we will grant a reward decoration to your account.

    Unfortunately, we are not able to grant a reward decoration automatically, and we need to ask you to contact our support team after the end of the event on October 31st. We will check each case and will add a reward decoration accordingly. 

    1. select "in-game loss" from the SUBJECT dropdown list.
    2. write down "Halloween Search Event Reward" 

    Note: If you don't include the information above, please be aware that response from our support team may take more time.

    Thank you for your support and happy farming!

    WWC Rewards Compensation & a Downtime on Monday




    Dear farmers,

    Unfortunately we had some issue with the booster payout of the recent World Wide Championship and therefore, we'll provide a compensatory payout of those within the next hour.

    The compensation looks as the following:
    • All players will receive a 24 hour / 50% booster
    • Rank 1 players will receive a 168 hours / 50% booster
    • Rank 2 to 20 players will receive a 72 hours / 50% booster
    For any other missing rewards, you will need to contact Support.

    In addition, we'll have a short maintenance downtime on Monday, October 28, in order to hotfix the underlying issue.

    The downtime will start at 10:30 CET and last approximate 30 minutes.

    We deeply apologize for any inconveniences caused and wish you all the best.

    Cheers,

    Your Big Farm Team

     Confusion about FL & CHWE




    Hello Farmers,

    As you might have already noticed, the current Cooperative Hardworker Event has not been counting towards the Farmers League, which is an intended game behaviour. There will not be any further medal payout for this run of the FL. Therefore, the CHWE has already stopped counting points towards the FL.  

    Each run of the Farmers League has a certain number of the medal payout days, 42-43 days depending on each run. Since there was a double payout on 27th Oct due to the change from the summertime to wintertime, the current FL has already covered all payout days.

    Please note that you don't need to contact our support team regarding this case.

    We apologise for the confusion caused.

    Village Fair Activity Reward Compensation & Missing Ranking Rewards



    Hello Farmers

    As we already mentioned in the last announcement, the previous Village Fair had some issues with the Co-op activity reward payout for the first two days of the event run.

    On Monday this week, we implemented a hotfix whereby the activity rewards have been paid out correctly ever since.

    Regarding the unpaid activity rewards for the first two days of the event, unfortunately, we are not able to grant reward items depending on your Co-op due to some technical limitations we have. Therefore, we would like to offer a compensation package depending on your farm level.

    The packages are as follows: 

    • Level 6 - 64:
      • 30 x Seaweed feed
      • 4 x Seaweed humus
      • 30 x Seaweed fertilizer
      • 1 x Green theme box
      • 1 x Purple theme box
      • 4 x Orange theme box
      • 1 x Gold theme box
      • 1 x Choosable Reward - Construction Token (11)
      • 5 x Balloon tokens

    • Level 65 - 149:
      • 40 x Seaweed feed
      • 8 x Seaweed humus
      • 40 x Seaweed fertilizer
      • 5 x Green theme box
      • 2 x Purple theme box
      • 7 x Orange theme box
      • 3 x Gold theme box
      • 1 x Choosable Reward - Construction Token (13)
      • 5 x Balloon tokens
    • Level 150 - :
      • 50 x Seaweed feed
      • 10 x Seaweed humus
      • 50 x Seaweed fertilizer
      • 10 x Green theme box
      • 5 x Purple theme box
      • 14 x Orange theme box
      • 7 x Gold theme box
      • 1 x Choosable Reward - Construction Token (15)
      • 5 x Balloon tokens

    We do not know exactly when the packages will be credited, but there will be a pop-up to inform you at the time.

    We are also aware of some issue with the Co-op ranking reward payout at the end of the event today (13/11/2019) and some cooperatives across all servers have not received their reward yet. We are investigating the situation and discussing how to deal with the cases, we will inform you about how we will make up for the issue once it becomes clear.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused during the VF event.

    Your Big Farm Team

    New Northern Lights Farm is here!



    Hello Farmers,

    The frosty mornings have arrived and it is getting a bit too cold outside to start off early in the fields, its proving much easier to stay nice and toasty in the bed! It’s even worse on the Northern Lights Farm, where we need to keep our fields and stables going all day everyday, even though the sun is hidden below the horizon! Instead, we have a rare treat that most people don’t get to see: the beautiful northern lights dancing across the sky. In the perpetual darkness of winter, so your farm is always lit up by them!

    Don’t let yourself get too bothered by the icy temperatures! As long as you are productive, it keeps your body nice and warm! I am sure that it would also lead your farm business to success!

    Just like the Viking Farm, the Northern Lights Farm has been revamped. You will see all sorts of fantastic changes in a similar vein to those on the Viking Farm.

    The new Northern Lights Farm is starting today!



    Rewards

    The #1 ranked farmer will win a new winter-themed house: 
    Winter Cottage
    .



    The top 5 will have the chance to get a new “Versatile fruit plantation” 
    which can produce citrus fruits or olives on the flower farm.



    The top 10 will have the change to get a choosable reward that offers 
    “Northern Lights Duck Coop” or “Northern Lights Donkey Stable”.



    And, the top-ranking rewards are now extended to the top 1000 farmers
    So, you will have more chances to win!





    Get your hat and scarf and join us in discovering all the new stuff in this great event!

  • Hi Everyone,

    ACTIVITY REWARD COMPENSATION PACKAGES:
    We have been informed that the the packages should have all now been sent out, but we have also had reports from some high level players that they have only received the lowest level package & not the additional one for their level. The team are going to investigate this on Monday, so, for now:

    If you were active in the Village fair & have still not received your compensation or have only received part of it, please post HERE 

    MISSING RANKING REWARDS
    Due to the delays dealing with the activity rewards, the team were unable to complete the work on the missing ranking rewards before the weekend, but they are compiling a list of the coops that did not get their rewards & will be addressing that next week too. 

    If your coop did not get their ranking rewards from the Village fair, you should be on the list, but we would also suggest that the coop leader sends in a ticket, on behalf of the whole coop, and includes in it:
    • "Missing ranking rewards for Village Fair ending on Nov 13th".
    • The name of your coop
    • The rank that your coop finished on.
    • The league that your coop played in.

    Thank you!

    Northern Lights Farm Wheel of Fortune (WoF) issue



    Hello Farmers

    We are aware of the issue with the Northern Lights Farm's Wheel of fortune (WoF event) where the reward decoration on the Jackpot round has not been granted. We will be fixing the issue with a hotfix today, and after the fix is applied, the correct decoration will be paid out on the Jackpot round from then onwards.

    For those who have not received the reward decoration up till that point (ie, since the current WoF started), we are currently planning a compensatory payout. We will be following up with more details regarding the compensation, in a later announcement.

    Please note that you do not need to contact our support regarding this issue, and we will be communicating via our community forums.

    Thank you for your support, and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

    Just an update to let you know what is happening with the Village Fair rewards:

    Activity Rewards
    The team are still working on the issues that some players have with the compensation packages.

    Ranking Rewards
    The list of affected coops has been completed & we are now just waiting for a date/time for this to be fixed.
    - Affected coops will received their reward according to their ranking.
    - Internal coop rewards cannot be paid out according to their coop internal ranking, therefore, members will be getting the following package: 70 seaweed fertilizer, 6 seaweed humus and 5 gold mystery boxes.

    Affected coops will receive their correct reward and each member will get a small package as a replacement of the internal coop ranking reward (as mentioned in the post above this one).

    Discover a new Goldfish Rescue

    Goldfish Rescue

    I’ve just been approached by the owner of the pet shop. There has been an accident at the shop! Their store was flooded and all their goldfish found their way into the river surrounding your farms! 

    I caught a couple of goldfish already, but there are still many more to rescue and we could do with more help to catch them all. Can you and your Co-op members help? If so, I promise to offer you some Goldfish coins as activity and ranking rewards.

    Goldfish Coins

    The owner of the pet shop has just opened another store in the combine trader at the event parking area. I am working at the shop. You can exchange your coins for plenty of fantastic items and a themed building "Maritime apiary".

    Maritime apiary


    The Goldfish rescue starts Today!

    Yours, Lana from Big Farm
