Constant Rotation of VFs and CCs

Is there anyone else who is burned out by the constant rotation of Village Fairs and Cooperative Championships?  This back to back stuff is just too much.  It leaves no time to breathe let alone time to re-arrange and upgrade farms.  Please give us at least a day between these things!!

    I just wonder if the rotation of CC/ML > VF/FHWE > CC/ML > VF/FHWE is due to the probability that these are the events that the majority of folks participate in.  Besides that these events are the ones with the best rewards. :))

  • My thought is they are "IMPROVING HWE REWARDS"   ie removing GML.  Hence why it has not been seen for a while.   This is only a GUESS and I hope I am wrong, but this seems to be the trend

    sigh..., all of your comments are being heard. All of you here want a break. Is that the final solution?
    Will GGS BiG Farm be fun again if we just take a break from all Events?
    How long of a break? How about we have a "  Taking a Break " Event  :D
    Please, if you can, offer some possible solutions when you comment concerning issues with the game. <3


  • I myself consider VF and CC as rest times.  So all good here, getting well rested....lol

    I stopped playing, still only log in twice a day to do the coopboat - can't see that will change and I predict I'm on my way outta here and have started playing other games too.

    We will *never* get a break now all is 'automated' - this has been what they have been aiming at since the year they merged/sold out.

    The big Stillfront, is doing to this game what they have done to the hundreds of other gamesites they have bought these last 5 years.
    'Automated' is the keyword.
  • it seems that ggs can push a button up and down, vf-cc-vf-cc-vf-cc, so much for variety, and keeping game interresting

    solution:
    1 country fair \ month
    insert multiple Hard Worker events (single event) to allow those who play hard to catch their breath

    Surely we are people playing, not the inventors of the game. I play it for my down time, to be entertained, not to be involved in the making of it. It's their job to keep us interested surely? If they just keep repeating the same things then of course players are going to get bored. Only 6 of our 44 strong co-op played the last CC and only 4 have played the VF - they are just jaded and have no time to build up resources between challenges. Now they're not doing horse ranch either as too time consuming to gear up for  race  you're only going to lose anyway! 
  • A day or two off between events ended with the Farmer's League.  And then combining the Village Fair and the FHWE events allowed them to run the CC more often.  I'm not sure why those needed to be combined.  CC, HWE, VF, CHWE and FHWE gives them 5 major events to run.  Why not have those run in a rotation?  That's up to 20 days before an event is repeated.  And it's easier to opt out of a HWE then a coop event, giving those that need a break the chance to rest for a few days.

    And I agree, having the same prizes event after event is not very creative.  I used to have enough sherwood trees to create my own forest and now I have more pigs in a cup than one person needs.

    until the players out there who spend a tonne of gold for rewards they don't want, stop spending gold on CC we will see no change, I love the idea of the 5 major events rotating for FL, with equal time for all these events, in fact I suggested when FL started ( but ignored then as well), or even throw in a 6th PP.  But until somebody wakes up the players who just HAVE to spend gold on CC, we can only dream

    go back to calendar everybody knows what's next 1 or 2 rest between events so you can build on your farm
  • amber3 (INT1)amber3 (INT1) INT1 Posts: 402
    some new events will be welcomed. mabe specific events for GF and FF separatly. a day or 2 of break from event to event. the division of VF from FHWE. and make them run in fiferent times. include again CHWE ,make PP as an event that counts for FL too and run it separatly from other events. that will do to fill the months and make the CC run at least once per month

    A possible solution is 24 Go! For 24 hours between the main games we build and harvest and reset our farms at our pace. The object would be to get the most XPs as we can and the reward would be to level up as many levels as possible doing so. For kicks, you could double our XPs or run double time on the clock. Shoot, I'll bet they'd even throw gold at it if they got diamonds for their rankings.

    Yes the constant run of CC's and VF's are becoming a bore but in my opinion its not so much the events themselves.....its the rewards on offer. How many friendship meadows do we really need? How many of the same boring rustic appearances do we need? CHANGE the rewards and if thats not something that you are willing to do give us a farm dollar option,,,, eg: Friendship meadow OR 10 million farm dollars........surely thats not rocket science?
    As usual Gizmo has hit the nail on the head.  These events being repeated over and over with the same rewards are just plain boring and in my opinion very lazy programming.

    It takes me days, sometimes as much as a week to upgrade anything.
    With the constant events, it's hard to figure out which things I won't need for that time.
    (I don't mind upgrading during the individual events, but want them available during the co-op ones.)
    -
    I really would like to buy gold again, but not until it stops being such a slog.
    How about an entire day each week with NO co-op event at all, to give us time to take a breath, make special seeds and upgrade?

    i used 2 love vf now you have ruined it we need diffrent events to put the fun back
  • sue1 (AU1)sue1 (AU1) AU1 Posts: 173
    We also think that most of the events go far too long, especially the Village Fair.  These events may not be so tedious if they were shorter with a days break in between.
  • rsny (US1)rsny (US1) US1 Posts: 2,089
    As is well known.  Nobody listens to us.

    The 2 events that used to be fun, the Co-op championship and the Village fair have become to put it mildly an event that few of our members are looking forward to.

    Less than 25% of the  members even bother to compete.

    Our coop does enjoy the events, but sure would enjoy a 1 day break between the events, that way we can prepare ourselves.  It would also be great if these events would start at 4 a.m. (Pacific Time) for the US1 server.  I would appreciate it anyway.  I am always in bed at the midnight hour so always start these events way behind the "power-curve".

    You asked for a solution-- I did give a solution.  Please give us a day in between these events.  And I agree with the others that adding some different rewards would provide more incentive.  This last VF ran for 5 days, which is a long time to go full speed without running very low on special seeds, humus, fertilizer, etc.  And now there are no GMLs for possible rewards for the VF.  The other solution I see here is to stop overlapping things.  Why not go back to putting the Fishing HWE as it's own event, instead of being tied to the VF?  The reason GGS is rotating the CCs and VFs so close together is by having them repeat so often I suspect people are buying more gold to make up for having to use so much humus etc to "speed" crops.

     Seems GGS is using their repeat button. I do enjoy the current events, but in moderation. Like DaisyMae7 said, a day in between events occasionally would be awesome as well as better prizes added. New events would be a great thing also!!
