Like the catalyzers, and many of the other prizes/hard work prizes that used to be in the events.
Hope GGS takes a look and decide to add some other prizes back in with the gold and silver apples.
cause now... with all these apples...
yes we may save up to buy what we want but...
there is no where goldflowers. gold licences, seaweed
we have to buy everything!!! and we need seaweed to be able to play all these events
and we can only buy 10 seaweed houmous?? its absurd really
plus... we should at least be able to exchange more silver apples for gold ones
one time only isnt enough
please let us use the max arrow to exchange how many we want

I can get seaweed stuff for both silver & gold apples, and also for gold apples I can get goldflower seeds and up to 3 GMLs (stinks that they are 3 different prices, we have to pay more for each 1).
If you really don't have those options, are they different per player or per server??? That would be really odd !!!
I hadn't noticed that we couldn't buy the regular mystery boxes. I fear they might be phasing those out. Which stinks in my opinion, those plain ole boxes are really awesome!
I do have the option to buy goldflower and gold licence but what I meant is that before...I could earn only from a box 1 or 3 GML
now I must buy it with apples
we lost many free prizes and some good ones
so I would like to see instead of the decos given in the events running, some mystery boxes at least

when i buy , for exemple, the big house with golden apples, do i have to up it also with apples or can i use dollars?
I think that it is very important to know.
"I have more information about the Reward Center and how to upgrade buildings. The buildings with the green arrow next to them, as Heather summised, need golden apples to upgrade (as indicated), the others need farm dollars. There are no gold upgrade buildings (just yet)."
Also, no more gold and silver chests.
I like the idea of purchasing goldflower seeds and mining licenses, but again the prices make it all but impossible, when considering the other essential items that were previously hard work rewards.
I give it an overall grade of 2/10. Fair idea, lousy implementation. Nothing more than yet another GGS cash grab, just like the ruined Fishing Hard Work Challenges. Spending less and less time with this game which is a real shame.
After playing under the "new system" for a while, I have to add my voice to those who point out the obvious shortcomings - of course it was done on purpose to milk those who pay for more money.
Yes - the apples coins are good in some respects, but for EVERY event?
At least they kept the boats in the FHWE prizes, I had several lower level members tell me they would quit if the boats were gone.
But yes, the biggest problem is the reduction in the amount of catalyst we can now get. I have been working REALLY hard, as someone without an income who cannot buy my way through the game, to upgrade one lab (currently at L98), thinking it would help me stay competitive, but no... now it'll sit sparklingly upgraded, but almost useless.
Reminds me of a while ago when they took away the booster badge tokens too, and made the best ones only obtainable with gold. Those of us who worked hard to get them all, got "punished" for it by losing them.
So it doesn't look as if hard work and skill is needed here, just money to buy performance and rankings.
And so they add a monthly "mood meter", but nowhere is there space to say WHY we are not rating our experience high. I guess they don't care - because if they read anything here, they'll know.
As long as there are players who spend, whatever we say won't matter. It comes down to deciding if it's worth the effort to keep going.
I like that we now have access to otherwise unavailable prizes like the colossal cowshed and the grand house; however, there are other items that we have lost.
I hate that we now have to buy the WoF tokens and construction slot coins, so we do not get as many and we totally lost the 1% decos we use to win in the CC. Additionally, we lost the Level 7 stable items from the VF. I was filling up the Pig Palace and Donkey Dwelling with these items and they are not even in the trade center to be purchased.
Additionally, the FHWE went to apple coins this time around and half expected to have boat prizes in the reset of the trade center but the prizes did not change. So we no longer can win the higher level boats either.
Maybe the compromise is to place these missing items in the trade center when that event is running. Example: when the FHWE is running put some boats available for purchase with gold apples in the trade center; for the VF, add the L7 stables, and maybe in the silver apples add in some of the % decos.
Thanks for listening
However; I am REALLY unhappy about the massive loss of other prizes that we used to get during coop events.
For example but not limited to: build tokens and water.
I am just about out of build tokens. I can only buy a few at a time via the reward center with silver apples. I cannot make them in the 'newer updated' lab. I can't buy them with the 'new' temp farm currencies. I can only buy them with gold now. I can't store the now purchased tokens like regular items so I can't save them up anymore like we could when they were a prize to choose from.
I used to be able to do major upgrades every two days or so. Now I'm am throttled to doing a major upgrade maybe once a week. This makes the growth of my farm FAR TOO SLOW. It also makes the ability of making my own reduced build time pointless. Which is something I can make in the 'newer updated' lab.
One of the best things GGS did was add the additional build slot. With plenty of build tokens to use it and making my own reduced build time, it was something I really enjoyed. My farm grew and was always more interesting each day.
Now the slowdown due to lack of build tokens has made this game very slow and boring to me.
To save on catalysts I continue to use my two nurseries (after all I did pay gold to build them) to help make special seeds. However, now there is not enough water. At some point GGS remedied the severe lack of water only to have it return now. I can't buy water with gold/silver apples. I can't buy it with the 'new' temp farm currencies either.
I'm sure there is more stuff I am missing and cannot acquire anymore but just haven't been faced with it yet.
I know GGS doesn't owe anything to me at all. I just want it known that my interest in this game has been greatly reduced due to the reduction in prizes especially the build tokens.

We can still get the build tokens, and even though the tokens themselves you can not store, apples can be stored and accumulated. Since tokens are always offered, they can be bought at any time needed. So, a player could store/hold onto a certain # of apples that they plan to use for builder tokens. Other than that, it is just a personal choice to use your apples for an extra build slot or other options just as GML or grand houses (among other choices).
Players in large or top co-ops have gotten used to having that 2nd build slot almost always available because they could have a large amount of builder tokens stored in pending rewards. In the past, the players in these coops often received more than they could ever use, but this is not the case for all players. There are plenty who, in the past setup might have received next to no builder tokens and now have a better chance of getting them than before.
Yes, exactly. We are in a drought that has not happened here in a very long time. There is severe lack of water in rewards and no apparent place to get more. I am hoping & praying for more rain in Big Farm! I do hope the game makers can throw a bunch into different places again ... really.... truly .... like soon....
Overall - - I do wish they would re-calculate the # of rewarded apples to make it so a player could purchase closer to the equivalent of what they used to win. Currently, we can purchase far less than we used to win, making apples, are a very weak currency in the economy of Big Farm
was 10,000 for 1
15,000 for 2
20,000 for 3
But it only gave me one for 20,000 WHY?
Could of got 2 for 10,000 each
