    i think it will be really fun once some things are worked out .  BUT the obsidan is earned with promotions in the farmers leaque.  So if a league contains a lot of big rollers and they all pushing only 3 will be promoted with medals.  And, if there is a league where no one is scoring someone can win gold with little effort .  so I believe it should be you get promoted upon reaching a number decided on vs medals, this way more players will keep going to acquire the numbers necessary to be promoted.  and if 2 big hitters in the same leaque and they both score 134m reps they will be promoted according to their numbers/work  vs awe im in  aleague with no one scoring-  thus an easy medal with no work.   We can keep the same medal system, however obsidan would be rewarded when reaching certain predetermined numbers.  As it is somone with 130m reps in one league and some one with 1 m reps in another league both get a gold medal, promoted and the same amout of obsidan- not  a good system. Let's not reward laziness : )

    I note your concern about the upgrades to the specialty animals and fields. I have forwarded this concern to the team. :)

  • It's the elusive obsidian you need to upgrade your farnhouse to level 11,not diamonds
    Don't you need diamonds as well? That was my impression. You need to upgrade to level ten and do some research to be allowed to upgrade, but the upgrade itself costs diamonds.
  • Oh dear. I spent nearly all my dollars upgrading the farmhouse to level 10 but it seems I need 65,000 obsidian to go any further. I've got about 2,000 from playing the FL, so I guess it will be a looooooong time before I get to take part in this.
    The upgraded farmhouse is useful as it gives me more workers and storage, so it isn't all gloom, but given the cost I'm not sure I'd have bothered if I'd known.

    When someone Get's there, could they please upload images and videos of possible thanks. A play through would be nice. Maybe GGS could do this for us or maybe that would be too much of a spoiler and we need to be surprised.

    I have revised how long it is going to take me to get there, originally thought 2 months for me but it will be more like 5-6  months as I don't buy season pass and I am a very active player, so I am thinking my estimate of 6 months for most was very generous to GGS/Silly front more like 12-15months for most players.  This is what I have received so far for this FL with 9 days to go and I am ranked 25th on our server ATM.  I will get more by the end and will post what I got at the end. It is going to take a LONG time to get 65K, unless you are willing to spend real money on it.

    I did buy the season pass and so far I am at 21500.  I thought I would buy it the first time to see where I end up.  Chances are it will take me a while to get all these 65K as the pass isn't something I normally buy.

  • @maxiroy (US1)  even buying the season pass it is likely that it would take you around 3 months to get 65k

    Yeah I don't expect I will have them in 3 months, it will be longer.  Maybe they will come up with some other ways to gets these things.  I hope more post it would be nice to see where others are at.

    I extrapolated it using the best on my server:

    She is now an animal lover



    she will likely reach the farm genius in the end.

    She will probably not make the 65,000 in this league, in the best case around 1,000 obsidian is missing.
    Accordingly, in the best case scenario, it then takes 2 days to move up 1 title in the new farm league and get the missing obsidian.
    all others take longer, of course.
    for me it takes 1.5 farm leagues to start: that takes a lot of time:










    I did the math for passport holders, without a pass it takes twice as long:
    I think 3 farmligen in the best case, unless you are at the top of the list

    @Exxy (INT1) I posted how many obsidians , I have so far, showing promotion and end of event. NO season pass ONLY 11500, that means it will take me at least 4 months ( I will get more before end, I will post what I get without Season pass and finishing rank on our server) and I will finish top 10-20 on our server usually.  Most therefor will not even get this, UNLESS they want to pay out their hard earned cash for a game.

    How did everyone end up doing?  I ended up with 30,000 obsidians and yes I bought the pass.  I most likely won't buy the pass next time.   I am a slow player anyways, but will admit I put a bit more effort to see where I would end up.

  • without pass I got 20K so it will take at LEAST 2 more FL (92 days, 138 days total approx. 4.5 to 5 months,) to get new farm

    It sounds like all upgrades cost obsidian on that farm.
