As you all know by now, the game is not working correctly. For some it freezes, for others it won't even load. For me has been most frustrating and agitating Saturday I have had in a long time. With less than a day to event's end, I couldn't even open my farm earlier today.
And during all that, what is GGS respond?
"It's frustrating, isn't it?" "Please be patient" "Problem will be fixed on Monday" "Refresh browser"
Monday? Monday most people have to go back to work or school. By Monday the event will be over. By Monday will be too late for those of us who have put on hours of hard work, who have spent hard earned money so that they can finish this event. Because the truth is that the event is difficult for the smaller farms, if not impossible to achieve without gold.
My 9 yrs old niece, who loves this game, is on level 30. She started the even at 27, but now she is in the next, higher group, with more to collect/donate. GGS made this event so hard, that one has to play day and night, or spend some considerable amount of gold to complete it, if one is in the lower group of farm levels. Just look at the apples required. Most players up to level 30, have only 1 apple orchard. Under my direction, she built 2. So, with 2 apple orchards, at level 2 produced 690 apples. The arithmetic is easy to do. Three hrs for each orchard to be ready, about 6 times daily (if one plays 18 hrs); The result is buy gold or kiss the Fairy Tower goodbye.
How about those who have only one Apple orchard, how are they to finish the event? Same answer; buy gold.
Alright, so we did that, most of us who wanted it badly enough.
Event should have been a success for both sides. Except that it isn't. Because GGS did not deliver, as usual.
I have wasted most of my day; This is a weekend; a day of relaxation, which turned out to be a day of a great frustration. And we have not gotten any satisfaction from the responses on the part of GGS. Same old story.
I was distrustful toward GGS, mostly as a result of what they did with Farmers, and last year with Farm Fever. And nothing is changing. GG readily continues to take our money, but when it comes to their commitment to the players, they simply do not deliver.
GGS lounged an event that obviously was not tested enough, that was showing bad signs from the start, and the studio people did nothing to fix the problem on time.
Here I have some questions for GGS that would like answered.
1. How will you compensate us for the time you took from us due to GG lounging an event that obviously was not tested enough and for whatever reason is freezing the game?
2.For those, who can not even log-in, what do GG propose to do; will more time be given so those players can finish the event?
3. Will you refund gold spent on the event for those who did, but couldn't finish it due to GG fault?
4. With all the money you make from the players, why can't you have a developer on weekends for time like this?
At a different farm game, if the same situation has occurred, the Studio in question would have compensated the players for the inconvenience it caused. But GGS is only giving us excuses and empty promises.
I was very reluctant to start buying gold, and after all that has happened, I see how right I have been.
You better step up to the plate, GG; for Big Farm is not the only game out there.
I am not spending anymore money until I see a little respect for the players who support this game. If you can't make it easy for us, relaxing and joyful, then it may be a time to start looking for another farm.
Good luck to all players who have not finished the event; Hope you find enough strength and time to finish it and get your reward!!!
