GGS Greed and ruining deals removal of all gold chest

I am sad by the GGS Greed that you have changed all the good deals and taken the gold chest out of all the deals, balloon the bf deals etc.... This is so bad that i and many other players are seriously considering stop playing BF because of your changes. I will now greatly reduce if not stop speading money here for your greedy company. This is so disappointing the way you have made the game worse with you greed and removal of the poor deals.

    i guess you people made enough money so you are taking every thing away because you have enough and dont care if we buy or not.i pick  not
  • I stopped spending any money on this game long ago because, just like when I played another GGS game, Empire, I got hacked by outsiders who put so much malware and virus software on it ruined my computer. GGS  you have good ideas but then you ruin them.

    ggs, you even replaced the 150 GOLD boxes from the benefit sale bundles with 150 SILVER boxes ?????????

    are you insane ???????

    who the hell is gonne pay 100 Euro for 150 silver boxes, LOL

    I agree wholeheartedly you are slowly turning me of the game & WHY have you given up on the big sale the top of the page sorry but please give it back ASAP prove you do have the players in mind instead of your gold grabbing

    I have to strongly agree with all the comments here. Taking away the last gold boxes from Benefit bundles was simply a nasty and spiteful move against us. The balloon tokens no longer give goldflowers, nor any decent decorations or skins etc. Just the same old useless stuff over and over. 

    I'm not sure if the CEO wants to go out of business, and put a lot of people out of work, or he's grabbing at the last of the euros and dollars and planning on exiling to South America with the loot. 

    Taking away the good, and replacing it with the bad is not how a company should run. We are real people spending real money with GGS, and this is the basis on how the company should work. 

    We give you $100 real cash, and you give us a few kilobytes of data (gold boxes) which probably costs you 50 cents to make, and you still don't get it. Without gold players, you wouldn't exist. 

    If we stop buying, you'll start dying. It's as simple as that.

    Please give us back the good stuff :)
  • i totally agree you are ruining the fun in playing and we spend lots of real money on this so please give us back our good deals again
  • kerrbear (US1)kerrbear (US1) US1 Posts: 38
    I also Agree with everything said here! I don't want to spend my money on crappy deals. Bring back the gold boxes! I would also like to see the GML back on the balloon wheel.

    Now GGS runs gold deals for the lower level players they tell me it is running but us at higher levels never get those deals. GGS greed is out of control this company has been ruining this game. Taking away GML, Gold chest on deals and prizes and asking for same money for silver chest give me a break. Getting close to quiting this game for good.
  • ijrosh (US1)ijrosh (US1) US1 Posts: 1,325
    i use to spend at least 70 dollars a month not counting the subs. i would buy the all worst gold chest offer during a buy one get one sale every month. then i started buying 1 or 2 of the 100 dollar balloon deals. each month they had those. sense they changed the balloon wheel and no longer offer the all worst gold chest offer. i have not bought anything. other then the monthly subs. i have also barley played. this game is not much fun with out gold. but i am not going to waste my money on nothing. at this point i am better off buying a PS4 and buying a new game every month. that would actually have saved me money,time and frustration. but i have a coop i have grown for the last past 4+ years. only reason it is so hard to walk away from completely. i have spent pretty much 8+ hours every day for the last 5+years. but between being sick and all the changes. there has been not much incentive to play other then the coop. but again playing with out gold is no fun. i refuse to waste my money and for me personally that is what your offers seem like to me. for example i am not going to go to a high end retail shop and buy a 100 dollar jeans made out of the same stuff as the 20 dollar pair at Walmart. just because they think it is worth it. so i mean no offence by that to anyone that likes designer cloths and thinks they are worth it. i just mean for me personally the deals feel like a waste to me. and i can have more fun cheaper some were else. just sticks to throw away 5+ years at over 8 hours a day and thousands of real life money on the game. so i really hope they get there act together fast.

    i won't even look at the offers anymore.  Completely ruined.

    company ran by toddlers ????

    More like company run by businessmen - there are no gaming company making more Euros than Stillfront. -GGS/ BF is one golden cow there.
    Activity, like this Horseranch makeover always happens in last of a quarter to make this quarter exceptionel against shareholders/buyers - business first.

    Doesn't matter if the event doesn't work, no matter the reason, cause we are a stable usergroup, connected to people we've met over the years. Not to mention the amount of working hours and real money converted to gold . 

    It seems that nobody listens where the decisions are made  B)

     Thank you everyone who has posted here for your feedback, negative or positive and lurkers that may agree with all this negativity but don't post. I will pass all of this thread to CM's on Monday. That's the only sensible thing to do, we are asked to do it by players and CM's and we can't do more. After that GGS needs to act. If we mods don't tell GGS about negative feed-back like about any other feedback, and if Community Managers don't transfer the negative feedback upstairs, then we better close the forum, because it will be useless.
    IMHO I believe some of you are underestimating the level of SKILL, training and MONEY it costs to develop a World Class Free Video Game. Perhaps you could breath for a moment and think, " am i right to complain about this bug or should i be helpful & post it in the bug report thread?" I have to read the Forum now a lot more then i ever have in the past many years I've played Big Farm before i was privileged enough to become a Moderator. So much negative, its sad 

    I WANT TO do my absolute Best for all the players in the World Wide Big Farm World FIRST!
     That is where my loyalties are. The BF Farmers.

    BF players i got ur back!

     I also feel i should partially explain my motivation for this little personal rant.
    30 Years Management in the Computer Industry, travelling the Real World, enough said.

    And I personally think you are forgetting about the ones complaing like myself. were last I checked paying 100 to 200 dollars a month was not a free game. Like I said better off going and buying a new 50 dollar play station game every month with zero bugs and saving money. Cause this game is Defently not free for some of us. This game is boring with out gold. I barley play it when I don't speed money for gold. So again I personally have spent thousands of dollars on this game over the years. And there are more complaints now then ever because they are being more greedy then ever. Or just think we are stupid. Not sure how the old sale of ballon tokens/ tokens/gold chest and now the replaced with silver can still be a 2k percent deal lol. Unless of course they are making are money worth way less wich is what players are complaint about. We realize every company needs to raise there prices a little over time. But would you really go to a fast food place that had a 2 dollar burger then next month they charged 20 and still buy it? Also some one might want to do the research here on this so called "free game" cause I know at one point a different "free"game was making a way higher profit every month then any month pay for game. So you might say "free" game. But exactly how much are they making? Because a lot of "free" games actually make way more then the ones that have a monthly fee. In fact everyone that gas subs right now is paying 5 to 15 dollars every month so again this is not a "free" game for a lot. So for a so called " "free" I for one don't want to feel like I am wasting my money especially Sence you said it yourself it should be "free" anyways. And you are right if I was not paying 100 dollars a month Mabe I would not complain so much.

    I have no doubt that it cost a lot to develop such a big game - but the investment is well paid off, year after year.
    But below is a little faktalink, to look at if we really are to talk about if the company makes money or not...

    With all that said, thanks for bringing this thread on :)

    “We ended 2019 with yet another record quarter supported by a well-balanced product mix. In total, we reported 51 percent growth in net revenues together with an adjusted EBIT margin of 32 percent in the quarter. As usual the fourth quarter is strong compared to the third quarter, and we continue to have good growth of our user base year over year, with continued good monetization. Our financial development for the full year 2019 was also strong, with a revenue growth of 48 percent and high profitability with an adjusted EBIT margin of 33 percent. It is also pleasing to conclude that one of our larger studios, Goodgame Studios with a portfolio of Big and Empire products, presented solid growth full year over full year. The growth in the fourth quarter was underpinned by substantial development year over year in our Big products and Nida Harb 3. Our midsized game portfolio is fueling our growth and Supremacy 1914 is a great example of an evergreen game where we have reinvested in a platform extension and updated content and features with the result of tripling the revenues year over year. After the reporting period we entered into an agreement to acquire Storm8, a leading mobile mashup game developer headquartered in California. The combination of Stillfront’s and Storm8’s complementary product portfolios and audiences is an excellent strategic fit and significantly increases Stillfront’s addressable market. We have also strengthened the balance sheet through a financing package of both equity and debt which provides opportunities for additional M&A activities moving forward. In November, we set out an ambition to triple our revenues within five years, and I am very confident with the steps we have taken towards creating a leading powerhouse of gaming studios.”
    Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group AB

    Just saying, IMO, perhaps some of the real fiat currency some of you are regretting spending on Big Farm could be spent buying Stillfront stock. How about 50/50? Roll the dice in the Biggest Casino. WBF

    It does cost money to develop a world class free game. So where is the reasoning for GGS to take away the biggest money makers for them? The good Balloon packs had to be a Cash Cow for them!
    This has been said over and over by so many different farmers and still nothing has changed. Now they want to give offers that take our GML? 
    If GGS doesn't listen to their customers and give offers that are really worth our hard earned money, then I feel just about done with all of it.  .  And I am sure I am not the only one.
    Sad sad sad!

    i do not have gold flowers on my wheel?  Why is it that some people have gold flower seeds on the extra round and others do not? 

  • this is what we are talking about -- and, these are snap shots from right now -- the balloon wheel deal has no gold boxes -- they were removed

    and, this is the balloon wheel -- i went and bought 10 spins -- so i could show what the wheel looks like right now -- can ggs kindly reimburse me for the gold i had to use to do that -- it would be great

    thanks for showing once again how greedy they are getting.that gold flower is new because it was a mining licence. so once again it is a down grade. 
  • Fallen (INT1)Fallen (INT1) INT1 Posts: 400
    I suggest we all buy lube, easier. (work it out)
  • Yeah , well, Goldflowers and Gml can be relatively similar , depending on how many you get

  • ijrosh (US1)ijrosh (US1) US1 Posts: 1,325
    a gold licence is 2k guaranteed. a gold flower is 300 to 1,200. so if it only gives 1 like it does the mining licence. then no way. if you get unlucky enough to only get 300 it would take like 6 of them. so hopefully i am wrong and it gives more then 1.if it gives more then 1 then maybe if you get lucky and get the 1,200 out of 2 of them. so please if someone lands on it can you say how many you got please.
  • funki (US1)funki (US1) US1 Posts: 75
    i have no clue atleast 400 tokens and no gold... got repbooster like 10 times
  • domino666 (INT1)domino666 (INT1) INT1 Posts: 79
    gold seeds on wwc wheel, LOL
    i spinned 600 tokens today on it, guess what ? not 1 time it stopped at the gold seeds, yesterday, 400 tokens, not 1 gold seed, it stops a lot on seaweed, weird, never on gold seeds, LOL
    someone else used 400 tokens, and got gold seeds 1 time, when it stops on gold seeds, you get 2 gold flowers
    HURRAY HURRAY, thank you so much stillfront
    i used to purchase over $200 each month, wich is way to much, i know, now, done with it
    has no use anyway, stillfront is creating a very hostile selfish environment
    fl is a perfect example
    they don't care about amazing coop leaders either, they are the ones who keep this game alife
    ooow, and btw, I WILL NEVER PAY FOR SILVER BOXES, so, your fl gold pass is a waist too

  • rie22 (US1)rie22 (US1) US1 Posts: 361
    I spun the wheel as well many times and didn't get 1 goldflower seed.  
  • ninjahuman (AU1)ninjahuman (AU1) AU1 Posts: 2,526
    I don't know how GGS can justify reducing and removing so many gold rewards unless it is to encourage players to purchase more than before to continue playing how they were.

    The WWC WOF change is obviously a downgrade because you can get an average of 750 gold per goldflower seed, so on average two goldflower seeds will be worse than a gold mining licence.

    What I am also very unhappy about is the fact that many of these changes are being done without any justified reason and without being mentioned. How many other situations are there that we don't know about when GGS is changing things for the worse for us? It's impossible to deny this due to their actions in these other situations. Many players make purchases to support GGS for the game but to have their support returned in this manner is unacceptable in my opinion. Personally, I have no intention to support their appalling actions and I know many others are feeling this way as well.

    The situation is not that hard to fix. If GGS didn't go removing good rewards spontaneously then we wouldn't be in this situation and many players would still be happily purchasing gold. But we can see that many players are ending their purchases from the forum and from talking to players in-game.
