    My game keeps freezing up and takes ages to go from one farm to the next. I know it is not my pc and it defo is not my internet.
    Please discuss this on an existing thread on same topic or open a new one instead of discussing it on the update OA thread.

    Not sure how you are counting

    With Pass , it should take around 2 FL to get 65K obsidians

    27.5k if you dont make it to animal lover , 30k if you make it to animal lover

    Then i rounded up average extra 1k per event , and there is 12 events

    its actually a bit more than 1k per event , but i rounded down , to give us a chance

    So that's between 39.5K - 45K obsidian for a FL , that is accounting for an active player that is :)

    Although it won't take 4 months to unlock the Obsidian Farm, i still think it's too expensive. I would expect it to be possible during the first League with high effort, but if I'm counting right, it's not possible even for the winner. There is at most 43k from progress and 18k (maybe 19 or 20, I am not sure) from events. That's still 2-4k less then you need for the first research and you would need to win every event to get it.
    It's not very motivating, when you already know you can't do it :-)

    We are all having this issue, maybe bugs Bunny can bring it up to the developers.  If we can't quote slowless and freezing and being booted out because of this update, where else can we post it.

    Orcas and lizards....what fool thought that was a great pair of creatures to raise? Why not some creatures that would actually be useful to a farmer. The folks at Good Game have lost their collective minds.
    There should be very useful ostriches to raise too. And I like lizards, they are cool. Orcas are endangered so save the planet.

    Do we have to wait until the end of Farmers League to see what Obsidian points we are allocated?
    If this is the case we will have to wait another month to start the new farm process.

    Well, you can get / make a pretty good estimate

    As the Obsidian farm, will produce Obsidian SS and Obsidian humus

    The only logical option, is that its better stuff , but who knows :)

    I see now ,  you earn the obsidian as you progress through the levels.

    During this time of waiting, I am one who gets into a lot of speculation.  I am wondering if the ostrich eggs are used in recipes.  Some cultures actually use the shell for bowls for instance.  Then comes the Orcas...will the Orcas be used to make special oil?  How about the Dragon Fruit...can we make jam out of that?  The speculation just goes on.  :o:D:p

  • MOST players will be lucky if they can start obsidian farm in 4 months, MOST will be more like 10-12 months.  IF you waste gold on season pass, on something you don't even know what the output is, good luck to you.  I will not spend gold on something that we don't even know how it works yet.  I expect it will take me 4 months to et enough obsidian to start it.  I will take my time and find out from others what you actually get from having new farm.  Let the gold buyer pay for the info we require.

    Next time you go shopping, go buy a parcel, that is totally wrapped without knowing what is in it.  Go on I dare you.  

    @Dark Underworld (AU1)

    1st of all, while the obsidians can be seen as extra motivation to buy the season pass, we do still get the extra diamonds and boxes etc that we got from the season pass previously :)

    Also, there are "lucky dips" in some stores where you buy small, usually $2-$10 parcels that you don't know what's in them :)

    So that's between 39.5K - 45K obsidian for a FL , that is accounting for an active player that is :)

    It pays at the same rate as diamonds.  The FL is 42 days (1.5 months) with gap in between.

    You are making my point for me.....roughly 4 months.  If it happens in 3 months, which seems like a very big "if".......I still won't be clapping for GGS.

    They take everything that they do right, and blow it in the roll out.  The incompetence over there is mind-numbing.

    It costs 65,000 Obsidian for the first thing an 500 for the next?  That make zero sense.

    I think this update had a lot of promise and then they blew it.  I will applaud them, when they get things right.  That is not this time.


    Well, Exxy's already given the numbers, i would say it would take roughly 1 and a half fl's to get 65K of obsidian, and then we have the remaining half to get some obsidian to actually start building the farm, i don't see what's so bad at all :)

    Would you rather it costs 50,000 instead of 500? Considering we'll have to spend 45K of diamonds and 65K of obsidian to get the farmhouse to lvl 11, it would be kinda strange if they asked us for another large amount after that :)

    While it will take a fair while to unlock and really get the farm going, i think that's how it's made, considering the rewards we can get,
    they can't just give it to us to be unlocked in a day :)

    Someone is missing the point.  Exxy and I are not average players.

    A full FL is 42 days, then a break.  1.5 Leagues is over 2 months.  Again this is for an uber player.

    For the vast majority of players, it will be much, much, much longer than 4 months.  Opening the Obsidian Farm and then having things earnable every 2-4 weeks.....would make more sense.  I simply see this as a botched rollout.  This is potentially good content, that got stepped on by a sloppy rollout.
    @gavinfarms (US1)

    The best get better faster than those that are "worse" at playing than them, everyone has the same chance and the same rules to earn the same amount of items, but at the end of the day, those who play more/smarter and who buy gold or extra advantages in the game will progress faster than those that don't.

    I think that it's good to give a challenge to very better players, as well as to set a longer-term goal, similar to unlocking booster badges, to reach for players that generally score a bit lower in events.

    And while a lot of the time we wish some events or parts of the game would be made a certain way, sometimes for better or worse, all we can do is give out suggestions and our opinions knowing the probably minimal effect it will have.

    something else to sit in the background & ignore for me I think,  My level 8 Farmhouse needs to be level 11 before I can do anything,  level 9 $26 million & takes 45 hours.
    Just a greedy gold grab I think.
    PASS


    My Farmhouse is now Level 9, next upgrade is $130 million or 1.3 million gold & will take 83 1/3 hours to do.

    @george3 (AU1)

    You have time to amass that, before you reach 65k obsidian :))

    Try working on Pineapple jam if you have the chance , sugar , seeds :))

    I leveled up in FL and didn't get any obsidian. Others didn't either, while most did? Is there something I'm missing?

  • Did you claim from rewards?

    I really think it is a horrible idea to make us buy the additional land expansions on our main farms using obsidian. Why? These land expansions have nothing to do with the Obsidian Farm. Now, once players can open the Obsidian Farm, it is feasible to have us use obsidian to open more land expansions on that farm, but not the main farms/gourmet farms/flower farms.  Please change this please, Thank you.
