    Like most events they/GGS has nerfed this event as well. :(
     So now most folks will have to get their GML's through the mystery boxes/chest. And heck it only takes about 100 to 110 of them to find 1 GML 
    It depends which type of mystery box you are talking about. If it is the regular one it gives one about 1% of the time and 300 gold 4% of the time. For the others the chance of collecting a GML is around 10%.

    Yes the regular mystery boxes/chest.
     As for the other's I have had no luck finding a GML, gold flower seeds & or gold in any, other than the special gold ones, which don't come around very often, and have opened thousands of the others.

    As I understand it from previous threads, the reset happens when a player or co-op score something this time. So, as Fawners suggests, if 3rd place have scored nothing as yet, their old score will still be showing.
    (but why they don't get cleared properly before the event starts is beyond me)
    So the 3rd place team can come in 3rd without even playing???  Meanwhile our co op came in 2nd in silver last village fair and never got our friendship meadow.   What a crock.GGS should spend more time fixing extreme flaws like this instead of worrying about new graphics for fields and food contracts.
    I truly could not agree more. As an ex programmer etc I find their ineptitude positively mind boggling
    I went to school for programming and i agree with you, completely.

    We still cannot see all leagues in the VF !

    @WascallyWabbit

    For the village fair that started today lots of pages with challenges are missing

    We can only see Diamond, Silver and Bronze pages. Platinum and gold pages are blank 

    Please fix this, I understand other servers dont have the same problem


    @PCA (GB1) You are correct, this does only appear to be happening on EN1 :/ - It has been reported, but if it helps in the meantime, I did some testing & if you open one of the blank pages & then close & reopen the event window, that does appear to populate the page, it even continues to work (sometimes) when I select the next page, then eventually they start going blank again, but I was able to open all of the pages, except for Gold 15, as that is the 1st one on the affected part of the list & I couldn`t get it to appear in the bar.

    @WascallyWabbit this problem has always been the case on AU server, I for 1 just though all servers were like this.  Sometimes with a bit of clicking back and forth you can get the pages to populate.  ATM I can't get page 8 silver if I click it takes me to page 11

    @Byron Longford (AU1) Thanks for the report, it was strange for it to only be happening on 1 server, we checked several & couldn`t find it anywhere else, so now we have 2, .... Any more?

    SKN1 ! It jumps there. From page 8 to 12 it jumps one. I.e. clicking page 8 I get page 9.

    Also from gold (page 8 to page 11) the pages are blank/empty when I click on the list.

  • Once again our co-op started in 2nd place and finished in 4th place and no one played? Why can't they fix this bug?

    I remember in the last village fair event, the hard work reward starts at 300 points and goes up by 300 points for each reward, eventually spacing out and reach 6/7 digit number. However, when I saw the hard work rewards today, the first reward requires 23,600 points to reach. There seems to be no point playing this anymore... 

    I am in a small coop so 23k points is very hard to reach. When CC and HWE have achievable starting rewards, this VF have rewards that are hardly achievable. On average, each 30-minute challenge earns around 300 points.

    On the NL server the game is hardly playable when the VF runs. Harvesting is near impossible; sowing also. And when we start one, we cannot see what is needed.
    Everytime the VF runs this happens. Worthless.

    What a mess, every time the village fair is starting, you can´t log ind, you can´t harvest or seed, you can´t write messages, It´s a petty, ´cause I like the event, but hate the problems every time. And yes, I have cleared browser, etc.

    Yes, it is a headache. As Kimmiecat (NL1) shows the Dropsmarkt comes up blanc. And as Kris847n (SKN1) says pages lock so we can´t plant, harvest aso aso. Refreshing / restarting over and over again ruins the wish to participate. While it also is highly annoying not being able to.

    Please, correct this not just asap, but immediately.

    No complaints from me anymore :smile:

    I mailed Support yesterday and today I received their answer.

    Gifting cow/ducksheds inside community buildings will be implemented eventually! We are to keep our eyes on the following updates, I am told.

    So hang in there :smile:

    Cheers

    After the hard work rewards have been bumped up on difficulty, the requirements for challenge support also bumped up. For achieving 2300 challenge points on a challenge yesterday, I remembered getting 60 rewards, but when I tried another challenge today, I found that I only get 30 rewards. 
    I hope I get my lost rewards as well as the lost hard work rewards due to the changes made. 

    PS: I notice that my speed fertilizers increased from 2500 to 2610 while I stay at challenge support reward 30 so it might be a visual bug.

    Did both challenges have the same number of stars?  That would make a difference, too.

    The only possible valid reason I could think of is the challenge being started on different league. 
    Edit: nope, I started a challenge in silver league and diamond league, and the requirements raised to 60 for the first reward. 

  • The number of challenge rewards received are based on the length of the challenge.  A 30-minute challenge will only produce the first 2 rewards, whereas it take a 10+ hour challenge to win all (100) challenge support rewards for that challenge.,

    If I understand the discussion correctly, I think they are talking about that different amounts of points are required to collect the challenge support rewards depending on which league the cooperative is in.

    @Jasist2 (INT1) On your screenshot you have 30/100 rewards, do you recall if there were also 100 available  when you got 60?

    Yes. In both cases I started a challenge with all 100 rewards available. 
    Although I was level 39 earlier and level 40 on the latter challenge. 
  • When did the last Village Fair start, my notes show over 1month ago.  But I may have written date down incorrectly.  Please advise if you have it.

    I am hoping that the missing VF is due to they are changing rewards back to personal based and get rid of the co op based rewards and making it possible to get decent rewards, maybe diamond,,,hint hint

    My notes show the last Village Fair was Jan. 9th
  • @Farmer Deb (US1) yeah that is what I had, normally comes on or close to the 9th, but 19th now hmmm maybe it got lost.

  • Let's just hope that when it returns all the hard work rewards haven't been replaced with new Village Fair coins. That seems to be a trend.
  • I would say that is exactly what is happening.

    and perhaps we will be able to get at ALL the challenges instead of having whole bands of them inaccessible !
