  • I really hope that  if we play blackmail every two months that the ads will stop.  If I am reading the thread correctly, this may not be a guarantee. Game satisfaction IS greatly diminished. I hope all those reading the opinion pages are as annoyed as the players.

    they keep doing their best to ruin a good game!   yea it may be left to the gold buyers.  if they keep paying, the game will continue to decreae the amount of time between purchases.  will the gold buyers think the game is still worth it, when only big money spenders are left?
    it had been fun......

  • I can't imagine anyone paying for an ad to show in front of me. I tune them out at best, at worst I will avoid that company.

    Is this only the US server?  This hot fix was just another way of getting our money.  Cheap tricks if you ask me.  Big Farm is becoming just like all the other online games.  They don't care about the players having fun they just want our money.  Hope they reconsider.  I think they will lose alot of their members.

    I don't even know if this is a trial anymore. But I've started getting them.(International server) Not so frequently though. It's been a long time since I've bought gold.

    Hello Everyone,

    Actually, there is a correction, the ads have gone live on most of the prominent servers from yesterday.

    We have passed on all your feedback to the team.

    Thank you for understanding,
    Bugs Bunny

    Hey guys, community manager here. 

    First of all, thanks to everyone who provided feedback and ideas for this ad test, which is indeed, still just a test. As BugsBunny mentioned, we have forwarded the feedback to the team and will continue to do so. You can be sure your voices are being heard and the team is eager to hear them as well.

    It might take a little before changes can be implemented, please don't expect this to just be gone by next week. Until then, if you can come up with constructive feedback and ideas, post them here and let me know so we know exactly how this affects your Big Farm experience. 

    Happy farming,
    CM_Mystletainn

    Thanks for the reply.

     

      
  • I do not understand what you mean by constructive feedback. In timed missions, this will be a problem and interfere with the game. And player satisfaction is impacted negatively. I know you have not done a satisfaction survey in a while, but maybe poll your customers.  I would bet that over 50% of them are retired and found some way to interact with others and have fun.  If I were wealthy, I would not be at home playing a game.
  • I sure hope that if this ad thing sticks around that it is enough of a revenue stream to keep the servers live, seems like a bleed on interest in the game.

    Ad free is why I started playing Big Farm.

    An ad for every farm we visit just to water the co op trees :( An ad for every time we change farms ? :(
    These folks(GGS) get paid to put these ads on their site for folks to see.
     Give us the option to get paid for watching them or remove them altogether! Turn them into a PTC function!

    Make the ads clickable for rewards, like they used to be. Find a partner who pays you for the number of clicks. Enough people will click on the ads to make it viable.

    If you had listened to your customers years ago, and made the game fun to play and bug free, your gold sales wouldn't have dried up.  Instead, you are forcing people to buy gold for what was billed as "free to play."

    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

    I am wondering if The Ads are for all the players, or for only the ones who got the Big Farm Story game in Steam?, I ask that question cause I was also wondering if the Ads came from Steam or not.

    Never mind, I just read what BugsBunny added in above, it seems they were added intentionally by the game company themselves it seems, no matter  I am still not happy bout it. :(

  • This is really a shame that Good Game Studio's now has to pressure players into buying gold.
    By using advertisement ads while we open the game to play let alone while we are playing the game or even going to another players farm. Isn't it enough that we have Prime on the top left corner of our screen reminding us at all times? Buy Gold!! Some of us can't afford or even have credit card to purchase gold with, I guess others are right we are in desperate times even for Good Game Studios.
    Too bad, this use to be a family fun game without all the pressure pushing people out there buy this and buy that.. Now I cant relax and enjoy playing bigfarm :( without pressure to buy gold, just to get the ads off for 60 days really? 
    Your right Uncle John it does look like Good Game Studios only wants Gold players to be playing this game. 
    It looks like it is time to find another fun, relaxing game with out being pressured into buying gold to play

    Players who have not bought the gold in the last 60 days cycle will get the ad, they will disappear for 60 days once you buy gold for one time, and will return after 60 days again.


    NO WORDS - just appalling!

    My concern is that is is 60 days now, then every 30 days, then every 2 weeks, then every week.

    Unfortunately, all these suggestions and comments fall on deaf ears with GGS.  Sadly!  :'(

    Ok - I just got one of those ads.
    If they continue here, I do not.

    I gotta say, GGS has finally jumped the shark. This ad thing is a deal-breaker for me. If it doesn't stop in the next couple of days, I'm outta here. Permanently.

    GGS has shown repeatedly that all they care about is getting money out of us. They don't care about improving the game as an end to itself. I thought the Dairy was going to be a fun addition to my daily farming, but the tokens ruined it. There are so many things in the parking lot nowadays that I just have to ignore. And so many things that I just don't know what they are: Balloon tokens? Never seen one. There's a new building in the Village that just appeared one day. No idea what it's for.

    GGS, when are you going to realize that you can attract as many new people by having a really good game (your name, by the way) as you can by having a really big game.

    In the end if you chase away all non-gold buyers there will be considerable less players for the gold-buyers to  play or win against, if the game becomes too expensive for even the gold players they'll slowly disappear as well. It takes too many years to build a competitive farm to even compete at a reasonable level, I have spent years, it is so disappointing after building all my farms and participating in all the events that I may have to consider giving it all up. New members come and go so quickly now because it is too overwhelming, especially with the constant barrage of events. In our coop we try to support and encourage new members, teach them the ropes, if we give up new players will leave as fast as they come.
