Winter Wonderland Farm...Early entry or wait?

I did not think that I got any value for my FC when I paid for early access to LC - so I most certainly will NOT be making that mistake again.

    I think I will pay earlier. I have been saving up farm cash. I didn't buy LHC early, and glad I didn't because it seems to be a disappointment, but Winter Wonderland seems fun.

    I *MAY* pay for early access ... IF(!) it's reasonably priced (for example under 25 FC) AND I get a 40% or 50% off FC sale in the next few weeks (has to be BEFORE I go to WW). There would also be other factors influencing my purchase which have yet to be determined. (No limits on plots, shared/extended storage, etc would help tip the balance in favor, for example.) *IF* I do, I won't be the first to get it, I'll wait to read comments from those who beat me to the punch. As for the contest, I have no hope of being in the top 99.999999% of the best, so I'm not even going to bother entering. :(

    You know what? After you said that something came to me. What if there is no "early access" like CS told you. Notice the contest says FREE access, not free and early. What if it's released to everyone at the same time, and the only way to get it IS to pay. Maybe it won't be free - ever. Notice the loading screen, it says "Save the Children" on it. Maybe the entire farm is like a charity crop, and it won't be free ever.

    People will freak!! Imagine all the new threads, one after another!! Oh, the horror!!

    I will only go on it if it is free. I'm done spending real money on this game or any other Zynga game.

    You're wrong. The contest is for the EARLY ACCESS!

    I copy the rules of contest (the 1st post in the thread):

    The things you saw in the market were released in error and were then removed. Those items will be for the new Winter Wonderland farm that will be available soon.

    OT: It looks pretty cool to me but I won't be paying FC to get 1 week early access...I can wait.

    Just going buy what the title says, just like last time. This time there was no mention of early access in the title. I'm not in the contest, so I have no reason to look. But, how many times has Zynga posted wrong info. for us here? Almost, always. I will let you decide.

    Also, early access isn't free. All they do is give you the farm cash to BUY your way into it. So, there, it could still be farm cash only - forever.

    I am somewhat surprised by the results so far. I thought there would be a lot more votes for "Trying to win free entry in contest, if not will wait for it to be free."

    In retrospect, I could have added options that included using accumulated FV cash (earned/paid for). But I decided against it and just went with "other."

    I will wait to see what perks, if any, go along with paying for early entry and it also depends on the cost of early entry. I paid for early entry to LHC because of the promise of bonus quests that only those that paid for early entry would get. Those quests never materialized so I will think carefully before paying for early entry to the WW farm.

    I chose other. I am willing to pay to go early, but haven't had a decent FC sale offered to me in quite some time. So, I may not be able to pay to go. ;)

    I think there should be early passes available to players that have reported major problems with gameplay due to all the glitches....

    Yes I know that means all of us :rolleyes:

    I can wait for free access. I'm looking forward to getting it but won't pay to go early.
    And if it's never released free then I will never have it. =)
    I won't pay for expansions to have more room to buy more items....

    I voted other. I don't pay FC for expansions so I can't say I would buy for access sake.

    I did buy the pass for the cove - I chose to do it because after reviewing the mountain lion free gift and the quest guide on the official blog, I decided that if the rewards I would get were in the market, I would have been willing to pay the cost of the ticket for those items- and I understand this being FV that anything could be free tomorrow.


    I will treat WW the same way. When I see the cost of the ticket and what gifts you get for going early, I will decide if they are worth the cost and if I would buy them in the market to have them now, even though they might be free/cheaper later on. If they're worth it to me, I will buy if not I will wait for free access.
