In this day and age where internet privacy is an issue this is something that yall really need to address. We as players and customers need to be able to have the power over who is and isn’t part of our in game social circle. I get that in the olden days Zynga games relied a lot on social sharing and peer pressure to lure in and keep it’s customers engaged in the game but with the way things work today – this isn’t even a thing anymore – people just block and remove the apps. Players need to be able to manage their friends and neighbor lists in game. A simple tab at the top of the page with each contacts name or icon followed by two columns of boxes to check if you want this person on your lists and neighbor bar – simple – you’ve done it in other games you have the technology. We need to be able to add and remove at our discretion not yours – not after they’ve been gone for x amount of months not if we have x amount of friends – not because the game coded random people in. And the plus on your side is that we won’t have to bother support with this any more.
One of the biggest complaints people have with this game is that it’s become too hard. Your game algorithms tend to punish those that have the time and resources to excel and push people to the brink. I understand that you cater to that compulsively addicted 1% that pays the bills on the game but the average player comes to Farmville to relax and enjoy the game not to grind and compete and to get swindled – for me the easiest way to enjoy the game is to not play it – or play it rarely because that’s what the algorithm for a nice relaxing game is – but that also means I’m less inclined to spend money. Please consider breaking your Quests and Events into Easy, Regular and Challenge Modes – Easy mode for people that just want to one and done it easier tasks that will give players the ability to participate in the quest one go thru at a slower pace for the basic rewards. The regular mode would be what we currently have but with more manageable requirements that can be repeated – and a Challenge Mode that is harder and with added benefits – maybe some certificates added to the rewards for those that want that extra work. The current set up isn’t working.
While the GF wasn’t a great success there were so many good things about it that will be missed – the simple peaceful and easy aspect of the GF was a nice change of pace from the grind on the big farm. Those boosts were probably the best perks in the game - please bring those back as certificates at some point. Also if you can unlock the the GF décor in the market so that everyone can buy it now that would be great. There is also a Mulch crop packet that should probably be recoded with another perk or removed.
It’s big, its ugly, it’s too hard, the rewards stink, and for most people that have it – it’s broken. Honestly I think the only thing people like about this feature is that you can exploit the glitch to hundreds of fields on your farm – which yall said you were going to fix but I have a feeling that you won’t because you know it’s really the only reason people are still playing this mess and you don’t want it to look like the failure it is.
I know they make you a lot of money – do you know how many people hate them? The original fair with our friends that meant nothing but bragging rights for the week was fun and engaging and easy enough to ignore if we wanted – since you turned it into a legit competition it’s been a thorn in the side of your players. Between the pop ups, cheaters, glitches and broken bits with each rendition it becomes more of a joke. Can we please put the fairs to rest. Yeah I know it’s not going to happen but I had to ask.
There’s not a lot to say that hasn’t been said a thousand times – why why why is every order 350 of this or that – why is there a cap on the number of orders – why do you have more requirements/work for smaller co-ops than bigger ones? Why does the second half of the map have such crappy end of the map rewards and when will new towns get added. Mostly I’d like to be able to remove the building and get my 8 hay bales back since moving to 2 bales has messed up how we get farmhands.
There needs to be a giant trash bin to dump excess inventory in – I’ve got billions of coin worth of stuff I cannot sell off due to the money cap – I honestly tried and spend a whole day not getting past the first page. There is also a bunch of old quest stuff pages and pages of it that has no ability to use or sell – it’s just data storage. The new selling tool seems to be a step in the right direction but there needs to be more - we also need a big money dump for all those coins – the mansion isn’t enough to get rid of coins please consider making some certificates available maybe for 100 million you can get a level up or 50 million for an hour of water.
I know there are more out there we’ve seen them on spoiler sites and cheaters farms – obviously they’ve been coded in - when will they be released? Seriously it’s been a year or more since I used my favors on anything but breeding – give me a reason to bother. Would love to see a larger field added to the upgrades – maybe a Parcel or Acre which would be the equivalent of 100 plots - also like to add a seeder to the airplane and maybe get a harvester as well and something for the on farm animals maybe a pasture on the farm that would hold 10-55 animals and would have a perk like speeding up hunger or less super feed or something of that nature. At the very least maybe you can remove the limits on the number of items you can buy so that people can be on a level playing field with those cheating their way thru the riverside exploit.
I’ve said it before but will throw it out there again – this should have been in addition to the prized houses we currently have – not instead of – this could have been a great useful thing – but I will not sacrifice my existing houses for it – I’m far too attached to the animations on the original houses as well as the half super feed perks. Please consider changing this so we can keep our old houses as well.
Please put the actual recipes back in the crafting buildings - still so many people having confusion on how the base recipes and power work because you cannot see with the one click what is happening. Also we need upgrades for the hen house, dairy and spinning wheel.
Sometimes I feel like I’m beating my head against the wall with this one – I love spending money on décor – you would get more money out of more people if you brought back a weekly release of NEW décor instead of making the game harder. Holiday décor why do we not celebrate the holidays anymore? Also more clothing, more options for our avatars. A pond - I want to put a pond on my farm – or at least release some water patches as well as rocks, stumps, flowers, etc. Please give the artists some more time to do this kind of stuff.
