    Once again the crop and drop requirements per mini-game have gone up -.- . The more crops we have to grow, the more manure and water we need... that costs farmers tons of CCs, and since we have had event after event piled on top of more events the manure prices in the market go thru the roof, if they even recover from the last event. So many crops are required that we cannot even farm our own manure during the events, because we need every inch of field space for growing the crazy amounts of crops you now require! Very unfair to lower level farmers with limited CCs to work with. And that really takes a lot of the appeal away from the rewards farmers gain for participating in these events. Game Devs really need to rethink things before labeling these ridiculously high requirement events as "easy"... because in all reality they are far from easy for so many farmers :sleepy:.

    Good to see a long crop that will allow me to get some measure of sleep during the event....but these back to backs are preventing me from enjoying the other aspects of the game! Granted, I'm 11 days old, but it seems like I've been rushing around just doing events.....it's getting frustrating! And the sheer number of resources needed on this one, along with the failure factor (ie losing your puck) means that some of that time spent will ultimately be wasted!!!!

    Outstanding choice, No Milling. Thank you!
    Looking forward to the event that allows us to Gift To Every Neighbor... :p

    Happy to see no milling and that we don't have to choose which gift to give - It's the same as the football game, so nothing new really. I'm not sure if the high requirements and low drops give this an easy rating, but we'll see as we progress. I would like some time to play as normal between events, but looking at the May calendar, I can see that it won't happen anytime soon, These back to back events are starting to be really boring, but it is our decision whether to take part or not, so at least players that like a lot of events will be happier with the game than I am.

    I just want to thank you for YOUR feedback. It is important to know and especially if you are feeling the way you do at only 11 days old(congrats on that by the way. If you don't have a mentor get one it will help)

    Let me add my thanks to the no milling and one giftable item notes above. I also like that it appears that the price of things in the shop is much more reasonable than sometimes. I do like this mechanic, although there are, once again, such a high number of games required to be played, to get all the prizes, that it becomes tedious.

    PLEASE stop with back to back events like this. No one enjoys them. There don't need to be multiple days in between, just not, literally, one ends on Tuesday and the next begins on Wednesday. Or if you insist on doing that, have at least one event per month be a repeat of prior ones, so that players who completed it the first time, could skip it, and those who didn't finish the first round, could have another shot. I know of several games that run this method, and it is quite rewarding.

    Thankyou for making the two crop times compatible. With water, the times are six hours and four hours, which means, to me, that I can do two of one to three of the other...... if that makes sense.....

    I really like the choice of prizes we have in the mini game as well as the very reasonable pricing of the misc items in the event shop. This gives me some satisfaction for growing event crops. Compared to other events, the main prize, CR and givers, aren't worth the effort to me. Requirements for it are too steep, again. *sigh*

    To have all fields on main and baha available for this event is a pro but I don't like the twist. Somehow the Game Team decided both event crops to reward less TEP as regular baha crops, making it near useless to use our baha fields for the event.

    If this "easy" event need baskets to get the CR and givers, how will be the medium and hard difficulty(?) I'm just wondering...
    BP need to hire someone for Farmerama events testing.

    I really like to play the hockey mini game. My complaints are that it is freezing a bit making it harder to time right for shots and the amounts are high, making it difficult to get turns. I would have liked to be able to bounce the puck backwards to win more of the prizes in one go.

    No one has mentioned yet that there is such a low amount of coins to be won with each mini-game that it is not very fun after a while. The only thing "easy" about this game is passing the puck all other aspects are too hard to have fun.

    I only played game to I wanted Tungsten Baha stables and when I went to shop found out the Chromium baha stables. If you are going to post pictures and name on fact site, that is what should be available. Not a happy farmer. Feel like I wasted several days of growing crops for no reason as I didn't plan on wanting anything else.

    The Ice Hockey Shop does give Chromium instead of Tungsten- as shown in FAQ. I would rather have the Tungsten Stables too. You can still get the Tungsten stables from mini games 4 and 6. I got a couple so far but still no Rhino. I understand your frustration though because of all the back-to-back games some players use the Event FAQ to decide whether to participate in an event or not.

    I am having problems on some of the mini-games making shots. I am getting the green dotted line but just can't release the ball due to too much movement in the game.

    I agree that the crop requirements are too high; I've been playing and growing pretty much the whole event and will barely get enough coins for the cloud row and items, nothing to spend on anything extra at all. I would also like to continue to support those who are asking for fewer events and more time to play the actual game.

    I find it disingenuous of BP to label an event as "Easy" & then have over the top crop & drop requirements!
    The one positive thing would be not having to mill anything.

    I chose not to participate in Farmerama On Ice because of it so my past week has been both relaxing and still productive.

    I have to agree with comments re event requirements. As I increase in level it seems that events should get easier because I have access to higher level crops that yield have higher drop rates and also more plants to choose from to plant overnight but I find that these last 6-7 events have become harder and in some cases I was not able to finish.

    Only 1 out of 3 farms was able to finish this "easy" event. All farms are above Level 100. All of the games I have been unable to finish recently have been rated "easy" yet I was able to finish the others. Some players use these ratings to determine whether or not to participate. Rating system might need some tweaking.

    The first farm was able to finish and also buy the Briar Rose trees the other 2 had problems "releasing the ball" because of all the extra movement BP added to make the game more challenging (difficult) -- this caused a couple of games with no star coins resulting in them getting a CR without the last EP Giver (Slipped Away).

    I think if BP wanted to make it more difficult they could have made it so that you had to pass the ball more or a more difficult angle or more options on where to pass and having to choose the best player to pass it to in order to get the reward. This added movement where all of the players on the screen was just too much and interrupted the game play. You could get the green dotted line but the ball wouldn't release when it was supposed to. It also would occasionally shift position even though the cursor had not been moved.
