    I know in the humorous Official Announcement about the Balloon Wheel and Monty and the so called accident, I do truly feel that Monty better find all those gold Mystery boxes and get them back on the offers before I go and give him Real money.  The $99.99 offer included 700 Gold Mystery boxes with the 750 Balloon Tokens and 1500 regular Tokens. So Monty, I say this to you:  "Shame on you for losing those Gold Mystery Boxes!" "You have no excuse." "Now go out there and find all those Gold Mystery boxes right now, you hear!"  "When you do, then I will wave my hard earned money before your deals."   :o:):*
    Yes I concur. Will not be buying any more balloon tokens from sale .. UNLESS GGS fixes BWOF up

    thanks wascallyw for your kind comment and consideration -- but, for as long as i've been playing this game -- i have come to learn that ggs doesn't care about the players -- they only care about the money going into their wallets -- it's very, very evident -- the balloon wheel was one of the good things that ggs brought into this game -- and, now they have ruined it -- and, i'd stake my life that they won't change it back -- but, thanks for trying to convince me -- and, good luck to whenever life takes ya
    @seekinghighest (US1) Sometimes its just a balancing issue, the wheel was new & they would have set it up expecting certain levels of play with it, but its not until it goes globally live that they can really see how its used & if they were over generous with the rewards, they would need to reel it back a bit, but they could just have easily overdone that & then everyone stops playing it, which they would also not want. So we will pass on the feedback & you never know, they may tweak it back some the other way. They will be watching it, so they would notice a significant change in participation levels.

    So when will the balloon tokens/regular tokens/gold mystery boxes be back in the BigFarm%Sale?  I have been waiting for a while now. Thank you.  In my mind, my opinion, GGS was not "too generous" with the prizes or the BigFarm%Sale of those deals.  But when they do bring it back I sure hope it is after the Dream World is over since the last time I bought from the BigFarm%Sale, a "rare" glitch in the system happened and it thought I bought it from the DW instead of my main farm.  It was a mess, but I did finally get my purchase! Whew!

    What really burns my rear end is landing on a skin during a jackpot spin...I have far too many skins already, don't give me the same crap I already have too much of, and call it a win on the jackpot spin. I will save my money thanks.

    they are taking advantage of all those players stuck at home that are hooked on this game and bleeding them dry very shameful.

    I have now started to boycott buying any balloon pkgs.  This isn't even worth it anymore.  No gold boxes?  I was spending $100 every two weeks.  Not anymore.  You guys just screwed yourselves by taking away the good stuff.  Bet your feeling it in your pocketbooks.  The majority of players are now boycotting from buying that pkg.  If your were smart, you would bring it back.  I won't buy it with those silver boxes in it.  Nothing good.  Dumb call GGS.

    I just came back to the game after a break, ready to spend my money, but after this - taking away the good stuff and giving us every version of the NOT so good stuff -- NOPE!

    If the goal, GGS, was to make us spend more money, it's not going to work. When you take away the packages and prizes we DO want and replace them we those we don't, the fact is we are going to spend LESS (or none at all) not the other way around.

    Wise up, GGS. Or you will lose not only more buyers but also, people will quit the game altogether, tired of being taken advantage of simply for being GOOD customers! ;)

    I totally agree!  Please! Please! GGS bring back the "Gold Mystery Boxes" to the 2000% Balloon Wheel Token deal. The current substituted silver mystery boxes just don't cut it for me and I won't buy it. I know the global economy is hurting and most are cutting corners to save, but this is ridiculous.  The current deal is a type of "price gouging" you are doing to us!

  • i have bought alot of balloon packs and never hit the jackpot once ,so no chance to get goldflowers or gold boxes is bull so iam not buying the cheap verison either i rather do without
  • luvs2wolf64 (US1)luvs2wolf64 (US1) US1 Posts: 170
    Agreed - no point in spending the money if the low chances of winning are topped off by cheap prizes that many of us don't need or want.

    If I will ever even consider buying a balloon package from this point on,  it will ONLY be the one we were offered and then taken away.

    I agree Luvs ... they put in some silver mystery boxes in the deal, maybe GGS thinks we don't know the difference between silver and gold mystery boxes!!! Put back the gold mystery boxes .... and the gold seeds and mining licenses when you spin ..... if they fix it I will spin it ... otherwise they can keep it.

    i noticed that ggs took the gold licence out of the gold box.  I've not gotten 1 gold licence from a gold box since the change in the package and the balloon wheel.  Everything is going down the toilet. 


    PS;

    these are from the few gold gold boxes we win...
  • whats funny some of the best players of game  making comments and gg not listening thats cray cray

    they do not care about players.just the old mighty dollar.you figure in the events they have you buy seaweed product and use them  during events you are only getting garbage in the events and you are spending tons of money for being number one it does not add up

  • antigone6 (US1)antigone6 (US1) US1 Posts: 284
    And now it's gone. We can only hope that the goodies they took away will be added back to the balloon packages when balloon wheel returns. 

  • i keep hoping that ggs is coming to its sense about this balloon wheel package -- but, so far -- nope, so very sad that you are willing to loose players because of this -- and, i don't know what "other" changes have occurred but, all my supplies are going fast -- i can guarantee you this -- greed will get you nowhere -- and, the protesting will continue

    Supplies are dwindling fast here also. The changes that we don't know about are what worries me.It seems to push a stable with 5 minutes left cost more gold than before. Please watch the amounts that we are being charged for in regards to our gold supply.And the sales wanting to charge us our GML? NO Thank you, I will hang on to what I can.  The collectibles drop rates have apparently decreased. I am about to the point, that if GGS is going to be this greedy, decrease and increase where it suits them and hurts their customers, not give back the balloon wheel pcks and the goodies, once my supplies are gone, then I guess farming will change as I know it. Again... LESS is LESS~ less of good balloon pcks,  less GFlower seeds, less GML, less  supplies, LESS money I will spend. 
    I wonder, is GGS trying to lose customers?

    This issue doesn't affect me personally, but it is another example of the rewards of something being downgraded without any reason and with GGS failing to respond to any of the discussion about it.

    This is actually the part of the game that upsets me the most. We have had GMLs taken away from hard work rewards for ages and now we have reached the stage where they are taking away themed buildings as well as extra GMBs from this offer. If they can at least offer a justified reason then we will know why. But these things are just removed without any reason which implies that the game is unable to justify their reasons for removing or severely downgrading rewards in events or offers.

    I wish there was something we could do about this but I can't think of anything. I know some players are no longer making in-game purchases, but unfortunately most will eventually revert to it at a later time.

    @ninjahuman (AU1), I agree!  I was hoping that tropical cows would be included in the Trade Center.  I would have to spend tons and tons of gold just to get to the top 3 spots in the Tropical Farm Event just to get the one tropical cow.  Not worth it, so will focus on getting seaweed humus with the few shells that I earn.  I am not going to invest gold in the Tropical Farm either.
