  • Why not rewarding people who watch the ads ?
    give a little bit of gold to those who watch ads, incentives works way better in real life too, instead of punishment, and, it does not cost you anything, gold is not real, is only digital cluther
    this is bad, i do not see this game surviving
    cause, 60 days will turn into 30, and so on and on.....and soon they will put a minimum amount on it, and raising it
    not even subscriptions count, LOL, time to reconsidder them all
    very very agressive policy in THE MOST HORRIBLE TIMES PEOPLE HAVE EVER BEEN THROUGH
    you take take more and more, and give less and less to nothing in return
    that is saying a lot of what kinda people you are :(((((((((((



    I think a lot of folks have forgotten all the "freebies" that GGS does give us because we take it for granted.  We get some gold periodically when we daily log into the game, we get free decos from time to time, free tokens when harvest various stuff (WOF tokens, Fuko Tsusho coins, pair finder tokens, just to name a few things.  Just something to think about!  :D
    of course it could also be done with less, by removing a lot of nonsense things. that saves development costs and error corrections because things no longer work. the great greed of the GGS causes people to avoid this company, which means that the tent has to be closed or the remaining players can pay even more. just an idea. Just think about that.

    QUESTIONS FOR THE MODS:
    First, thank you mods, this has got to be so hard for you to try and handle.
    Question 1-Does purchasing gold via the BF% Sale icon at the top (3rd from the right) count as a "gold buy" to avoid the ads? If so, one $1,99 gold buy would negate the ads for a while.
    Question 2-How long is the gold buy going to negate the ads? For instance, if the BF%Sale for $1.99 for 2250 gold is bought, how long will it prevent ads from reappearing?
    Question 3-Are subscribers still having ads forced on them? They shouldn't...they're paying into the game on a monthly schedule. That should be rewarded by not making them sit thru the ads. I'm not a subscriber. but Including the ad removal as part of a subscription would make me consider one.
    Thank you!

    1. I don't think so  but will get this confirmed
    2. Gold purchase keeps you ad free for 60 days
    3. It has to be an actual gold purchase, not a subscription
    This is not correct. I do not have any adds, but I do have a subscription . Only 1 member of my coop is suffering from the adds, but she is not the only one that do not have a subscription. So actually, who is hidden by this awfulness and who is not ???

    Edit: actually 4 members of my coop is suffering from this. 
    PLEASE GGS, STOP this NOW !!!
    Not only is it damned irritating, but it also slows the game down. I can´t even Imagine how high my bloodpressure would be, if I had 20 seconds to do the last on a mission, and were stopped by an add like this :-(((((

    You have to reconsider whether there is another way to earn money enough to develop the game. I have a suggestion - STOP developing, as it is for now there is more than enough to do on a daily basis.

    Well, let's be real!  You really don't expect GGS to freely give every player 1+ Million gold do you?  That would be wishful thinking!  But I suppose the very thought is fun!  Enjoy!  :o:D

    I didn't start getting these ridiculous ads until yesterday & already, they are so annoying. This along with many other things will NOT make me buy gold!!!
    I had taken a few months off the game until a couple of weeks ago & now I think I should have just stayed away from it. And OMG, so many more glitches than there used to be. Aren't things supposed to improve with age?
    You sent me a flag a couple of days ago saying Thanks for staying with Big Farm for 5 years & then reward me with pop up ads. Well, thanks for nothing guys.

    You keep saying that you listen to the players and your implementing what they/we want, then maybe this should be put to a vote from the BF Community & then we'll see what people really want. GGS is slowing but surely ruining this game for so many people. You need to remember that improving is NOT the same a complicating & that seems to be what you are doing with BF & in turn, making it even more full of problems/glitches.
    Oh & can you please fix the forum login. Seems I have to verify my email every other time I try to login & have to reset my password because of it.
    To Infinity & Beyond!!!

    Stillfront  released their annual reports for 19. and interim for 2020 back in August- no where to be seen that BF are dying - more on the contrary...
    When we consider statistical data or growth/loss data, it is not always a constant, and it always changes, this report you mentioned was of 2019, so there can be a chance that it changed now.

     P.S: This is not an official post, and is a personal post.

     That is disappointing that the subscriptions don't count.  Any chance they might rethink this for the future?

    Labai gaila. Daug metų žaidžiau o dabar išsitrinsiu. Daėdė jau su savo pirk auksą ir dabar dar su pastoviai trikdančiu žaidimą  Play now arba išsipirk reklamų nebuvima. Tai pats tikriausias šantažas ir tiek.


    Translation:

    Very sorry. I’ve been playing for years and now I’m going to erase it. Daėdė is already with her buy gold and now still with the constantly disturbing game Play now or buy out in the absence of ads. It’s the truest blackmail and both.

    I really hate this. Also, since the update allowing the game to be played on mobile, the advertisements do not disappear, and there is really no option besides closing/reloading the page. Furthermore, GGS already earns a lot of ad revenue from their other games (Big Farm: Mobile Harvest; Big Company: Skytopia), so why do they need even more? In my opinion, this update is absolutely retarded. Please change this.






    P.S. I play Big Farm: Mobile Harvest, and the server have been down for the past few days. Is there something wrong?

    I have 2 simple questions.First question is will people who have a subscription package still receive ads?Second question if somebody buys gold from the daily bundle at the top of our page will that stop the ads?
  • maxiroy (US1)maxiroy (US1) US1 Posts: 371
    The subscription packs don't count, you will still receive ads.   One of the mods is looking into your second question.

    Apparently it WILL stop the adverts .... for 60 days

    Actually, Rosy confirmed here that the BF%Sale will stop the ads. Hopefully this doesn't change. 
    And I seriously hope they reconsider about inflicting ads on subscribers.

    It is already clear that they're not going to remove the ads. Many players are already asking what types of purchases are required to avoid the adverts and there are less than two pages of posts opposing the adverts on this forum after over 36 hours of them being in the game.
