Have you considered the power of the various Boosters and the Booster Board Badges?
1. Position #1: Goldfish food = +180% boost in goldfish food harvest
2. Position #2: Goldfish food & WF = +105% boost in goldfish food harvest plus +60% WF boost
3. Position #4: Goldfish food &Cabbage = +125% boost in goldfish food harvest plus +65% harvest in cabbage.
4. Position #5: Goldfish food & Cabbage & WF = +165% boost in goldfish food harvest plus +50% harvest in cabbage plus +50% WF boost.
So 180%+105%+125%+165%+80% = 655% boost in goldfish food. So my level 9 MF mill churns out 10,912 goldfish food at a time, and my Gourmet farm produces 79,464 goldfish food at one time. By using a bit of gold to skip harvest and then clicking the swift seeder button over and over a player can easily harvest a million or more goldfish food in a short time. I invested gold to get these level 5 goldfish food badges. I bought once and then I have them forever to use whenever needed. Hint: I did not buy all at once but over time. It is an investment to better my farm and my ability to play well. I hope this helps you see the power of the booster badges. As you can see I have a long ways to go to get all badges up to level 5...but that is one of my goals.
That's some serious gold spending and a strategy?
Or misuse of a bug which ggs doesn't know yet.
And their group description sums everything up lol.
Without buying their way to the top, via boosters among other things, this would not be possible. Most players with farm levels 500+ have spent many years building up their farms to be able to produce this much stuff, and a level 150 just hasn't put in that much time. If players are able to soar to the top just by dropping a lot of cash, not many other players will continue to try to compete - it's a way to give up & not try, and feel like all that time & effort was all for naught.
These 2 players have every right to be where they are at in rankings. If they choose to spend the cash, the way the game is currently set up, I don't see they have done anything wrong. I hope my words don't imply that I do. I do believe though, the original post was to point out to GGS how extreme the difference can be, especially with all the new additions, and the ramification it will have based on how it affects other players. So this is directed at the game developers, not the players who are using the new features to their benefit.
If what magnet90210 reported is true & they harvested 1 million feed in less than 3 minutes, well that's just another example of buying their way to the top.
I'll use Artful's analogy again here; Olympic athletes train hard, many hours a day for years, preparing for their event. Imagine the Olympics come around, they race hard & all the athletes times and scores have been calculated. Then, right before they take the podium, 3 people (NOT the top athletes in the event) walk up to the judges & hand them a wad of cash & are escorted to the podium & awarded the gold, silver & bronze medals.
(Thanks artful, I read this analogy quite awhile ago in some post; I'm a little sad to see it still applies)
Can you imagine what athletes would want to train hard after that, if that is all it ever takes to win?
And then take that same thought to players here - many will not want to compete, or participate in events knowing that a few will just buy their way to the top; and it will make many feel gutted that they spent all that time & effort building their farms, for nothing. While it may be a way for GGS to make immediate cash from this game, I imagine & fear it most likely will threaten long term income from more players.
P.S: Players do buy & spend gold, that is not my beef & more power to them. There have always been those that can afford to buy more gold than others. That is not the point. For me the point is, the game has started offering a whole lot more that caters to those that can spend a whole lot more, switching this from a strategic farming game, to a pay to win game.
in regards to booster board, do you really think that they can achieved with that kind of booster considering their growth spout and their current levels?
@fFarmerCli (US1) said:
and it still doesn't make sense to me (their farms are not developed enough).
Like Cli said it is completely possible. And 240 million rps is possible if they spun using tokens in CC wof. 5k tokens gives 10 million points and they would have bought enough needed to do it .
Its really costly but then again, its their money, so their choice.
They're not the first ones to spend on the game on specific things
I'll talk here from the #2 coop on International , your own team, have spent beaten us by spending many times before
So its a little ironic , that you complain if u get beaten by 2 players, who are willing to spend more
Just get over it, its not the end of the world to not win every event you know
Be good sport
You'll just come around, and crush us in the next Gold League
It used to be that if players worked hard and put time into the game, they could still do fairly good at events, maybe even win every now & again, but now it's just pay to win at everything it seems & that is what is disheartening.
similar recent topic is here.... this one is about the use of the WoF during CC, but it's the same topic or same mood as far as players paying to win CC
For those of you who have argued that lately you can just buy your way to the top,
unfortunately, there is justice in your words but not about these 2 players.
It is not possible to do this if your land is under requirement and your labs still level 20 which can't make
booster tokken at all...
Please read the Community Guidelines on how to use the forum
anyone else putting names and identifiable screenshots will get a warning
It is costly but those results are achievable with the farms they have
Having said that I have drawn GGS attention to the issue as so many are concerned
they will lose much more money from dozens of other players who will quit or stop investing money
in this game (only in our cooperative there are more than 50 such people...)
I don't think it is good for business ;-)
Honestly, all you need is to be able to use the CC WOF and to be able to buy tokens in order to get scores like that. Are you able to see the rankings for any of the CC WOFs and tell if they are at the top of the ranking for it or not?
If you see them collecting reputation points at a very fast rate (not the items in the mission), that gives a very strong suggestion that they are using the WOF.
This kind of thing is easily possible, especially when you consider the fact that there have been a few players that have collected over 500m points just from the CC WOF, or when there were a whole bunch of players that collected over 100m points each in some of those master league competitions for 1st, or even when someone saved up their tokens before and collected over 1 billion points in two consecutive competitions.

I believe the power of booster tokens and badges but question is where they get it from except they use their own program in game?
- how people without diary under level 150 make booster token?
- how people who have no land as per requirement and with feed lower than maximum?
- how people with lab level 20 produced booster token?
it would be great to learn if there's any possibility to grow that fast tho?
ali u ovom CC izgubili smo volju
do sada nismo videli da neko moze tako brzo i toliko da prikupi u sekundi -jedino ako su supermeni:):)
ukoliko nastave tako da igraju -bice interesantna borba kako u sledecem tako i u svim CC koji slede

Dont hate this is a game this is life
Coz this is happening in all servers believe me.
My coop always is at 5th-6th place or lower but never ask someone's help,to come from nowhere suddenly and make millions points per minutes to punish the best 2 coops?Why???
To proove what and to whom?
That i am Zorro?Really?
In my opinion this not a healthy competition...that seems like revenge to me from what I've allready read.
And all this is sad to happening and allowing.
we not win never Master League becasue some player played with hate
That feeling, that you cannot do anything to win
You have inflicted it on others many many many times
So you just feel what it does when it happens to you , we have to carry on
Unless of course, they don't mind spending much.
Come on, guys, you cannot be so naïve to believe that everything is okay with those two players.
Just looking at the speed of how they level up their farms is not very credulous.
Anyway, we have to accept that this game is plaid by humans. And as we all know: humans can be very destructive.
I decided to handle the situation in my own way: make fun of their SILLY co-op description and shelve or end my missions with 0 points whenever I come across them.
Should [ removed -Rosy ] on the international server decide to boycott the game and stop playing: YOU can count on me. I’ll be solidary with you.
GGS are aware of the situation
After discussion we have decided to close this thread
