Unlike past years, I now am reluctant to even login to FV2. Sadly, if I do login it is due only to a sense of obligation to fellow FV2 players and my Co-op. My logins are becoming less and less frequent.....
You ask why? You've forgotten from whence you came Zynga. Your customer base - that which made you - is fleeing in droves. Seemingly, you are on a course of self-desctruction.
At this moment in time there are no less than six (6) timed quests/ challenges in play, seven (7) when the weekly quest is included, nine (9) when Helping Hands and the Spin Wheel are considered, and twelve (12) when the Fairs, Co-ops and Bonus challenges are factored in - then consider also these:
Quests goals are beyond ridiculous
Helping Hands only works with some of the quests
More often than not, there are NO Helping Hands requests to do
Or, Helping Hands requests the do appear cannot be completed in the allotted 24 hours
Tractor Factor goals even for the simplest upgrade were ridiculous
Tractor Factor has been tied to other timed quests which of themselves are impossible to complete
The MyFriendsActivity Feed is breaking and non-functional more and more frequently
Nearly impossible to collect the required Post/Ask For items for the multitude of quests/challenges
Co-op tasks are now frequently requiring ingredients that are above your level
The Co-op Delivery Map has ended with no more goals to achieve
Quests are broken from the outset with completions not counting and earned rewards not being given
FV2 Launcher works only occasionally and there is no feedback assuring players of HTML in the offing
Game play freezes, repeated logins needed to get the quests to load, white screen and WADs
Leveling Up at a certain point all but ceases due to the ridiculous XP required
At a certain level there is nothing more than Expansions to purchase with Favors
Captain Jack's Riverside and Doubloons becomes pointless as the Map ends
Racing Stable, Rooster, Bird Houses cannot be stored and serve no useful purpose
There is more activity in the Bugs section of this forum than in any other section
Keeper's Journal has no value after achieving Rank 10
There is no joy left in this game. It has become noting but toil and drudgery.
Sadly, it is readily apparent that this game, Zynga's signature game will soon be shuttered and relegated to the ash heap of history.
My VIP Membership ends today. No more money will be spent as I chose not to partake in Zynga's thinly veiled attempt to force players to spend money to engage in basic gameplay. What little Farm Bucks I have will be expended.
I've enjoyed my many friendship established through this game. I will miss them as I slowly cease actively playing. Lastly, my apologies to my fellow Co-op members as my weekly contribution and participation also slowly ends. We made our five (5) year mark together - quite an achievement.
