    How often the adds pops up?

    I have no idea, since i bought gold recently :)

    I know, there is publicity/adds 25% of the time , All the time, for every show i watch on TV ;p

    They pop up every time you move from one farm to another, for example switching to the gourmet farm from the main farm. If you then go to the flower farm it pops up again.

    Its a matter of point of view

    Its really difficult for any business to really offer free products

    As far as i know, I dont know a lot of people who would accept working without getting paid :)

    Sadly , it seems to be a theme that is pretty recurrent with gaming companies , that a lot of people doesnt understand, its a business with operation costs , they have to pay for a place for workers to work, they have to pay salaries, they have to pay for hardware for their workers ( computers , servers , equipment ) , they have to pay for rental , heating/energy

    if all these things would be free for the company, i'm sure they would offer their products at the lowest price possible

    Asking a person to contribute 1$ per month , is far from unreasonable , even if u dont like it

    I'm not sure, what other tangible things you can reasonably obtain with 1$/month in 2020 

    Just to compare, where i live, a chocolate bar per month, would cost me more, than what Big Farm is asking :S

    The lowest gold package for me is $5.00..... some people are on a VERY tight budget.

    If you click on the ? in the top left corner the ads are sponsored by Google, at least for me because I play through Chrome. I can click on never to see the ad again, but they will show other ads unless I pay, it is extortion, as if Google doesn't make enough or own enough, or CONTROL enough (and people worry about wearing masks, just saying).

    So how often do these ads appear and which browser stops them from appearing? I find GGS quite dumb and lazy with programming with many events (temp farms in particular) the exact same thing with only different products. If players stay on their main farm all day does that mean no ads all day?

  • I admit, it sounds a bit annoying

    what is the minimum offer u have to buy, to get rid of them?

    1.99$?

    That would cost a person 0.99$/month to completely get rid of them

    That's 12$/Year

    its not optimal, but it doesnt sound that unrealist or undoable

    Maybe the whole scenario is'nt great, as people are used to having an ad-free game

    Buying a brand new game ( for most , is average 60$ , going up to 90$ for console games )

    Considering those cost , you'd have to play for 5 years, at this rate, to cover the price of a full game

    And we get plenty of things developped for the game , at this point , its a matter of what u think its worth :)
    And what happens when the Daily Bundles are no more?  I already buy a subscription & I stock up on gold when I have the extra money.... I have spent $100 for gold to last me 3/4 months....should I be punished with the ads after 60 days?  If they want everyone to pay to play then they need to do away with the ads and set a monthly minimum gold amt for all to buy and we would still lose a lot of players.  
  • @gizmo22 (AU1)  *clap clap clap clap*  Standing ovation !!!   I love it  :)   It's annoying my players which in turn annoys me.  I've had a few who have logged out of the game today too.  I think it may be a slow CC start tomorrow.  :(

    Completely agree.  I've started winding down my farm for cash to donate to my co-op before I walk away.  I forsee the longer you go without buying gold the more ads you're going to get until you buy.

    Why is everyone so surprised by ads? we are bombarded with ads all the time everywhere you look magazines, newspapers, facebook, youtube, the biggest one t.v. , cable, billboards, radio, ebay, phones i'm mean i could go on just be glad they haven't entered your dreams yet every FREE GAME IS NOT FREE just like when they say buy 1 get 1 you are still paying for the second one as well NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS FREE heck when you have a kid you still have to pay the hospital for delivery of the child don't you so if you walk away that is the best result you can give a company to stick it to them with your disgust just walk away

    Please stop the annoying commercial. It interferes with the game especially during the CC and trying to play missions. Thank you.

    That commercial is really annoying. It really makes farming a pain. As do the other pop ups. Please stop!

    It is disgraceful that they put ads on your farms even when you are paying for subscriptions ! That is still spending money on this game so why are people still getting the ads.
    Moved On !

    You are really ruining this CC, especially when you change farms to collect in the last few seconds of a mission and a super, super, super annoying ad comes up and prevents you from a win.   Did I say that those ads were super, super, super annoying?  Then, let me repeat myself.  They are super, super, super annoying up to a point where some players have left the game until they are gone.  Your bad idea is becoming worse.
  • I do not like the adds and I don't by gold can't a ford it. 'the adds inter fear on playing the game. It was fun
    before they added the adds not any more.

    I have a very good player who has spent more money on this game then anyone in my coop and probably has more fields than I do all with gold, plus her houses now she is not playing because you are demanding her to buy gold.  You are not thinking ahead or looking at the big picture.  Every game is getting money hungry.  I am sure you make enough money to run the game without trying to be rich. This in not the time for this kind of action when more than half of the world is out of work....bea

    We were getting enough ads to attempt to induce us to purchase gold packages,, now these new ads may just be the inducement for me to quit this game!!!!!'
