My bonus just went down in both lands after Z2L sent me those 20 beans!

Mine too... and 20 beans don't compensate that loss...

Same. My annoyance is escalating. 20.3% in my main village for 20 beans - keep the beans, z2...I am getting tired of moving my leprechaun.


Currently wasting time and money in: Hay Day. Oh, was that meant to be an update?

Following the change Z2live implemented for gold bonus items in anticipation of 5.0, I had to go for a differnent strategy to acumulate more shop bonus. So I bought, some new items for a one time bonus and went from 51% to 83%.

now Z2LIVe has made changes again. And guess what? My bonus is back to 59%. And my gold is gone.

Thanks. I cannot compensate the differnece with 20 MB for free

The bonus I just lost when I got the free 20 mb seems to be the same bonus amount I gained with the recent server changes.

So do we need the tailor or sculpter?  Still haven't heard if I need to pull those out.

 

OH sheesh - OK, I'm taking CorbiBabyTX out of retirement.  Only has bakeries and florists.  Not for me (can't buy higher shops) but for everyone else.  For anyone who wants access to tons of flower shops and bakeries - add it...HAHAHA...Lulu...you gonna delete this...it's a personal add me in the middle of this 5.0 thread...bwaahaaahaa.  It's got terrible bonus, but for those who want tokens, it's perfect.

So add CorbiBabyTX.  And don't worry, I'm fishslapping myself.  

Corbi, yes, you do need the tailor and sculpter at Fame level 2, ehich is easy to get to.
As much as I appreciate your giving mentality, I don't think you can get tokens from another one's land. I have only been receiving them from my own land. Thank you so much for your kindness, though :)

Kat - we'll have to play and see.  Seems like they would want you to earn them from others, as that increases the "social aspect".  We'll find out :o)  Or maybe they just want you to allow others to trade at your own lands.  I'll ask those who have added me, if they are gaining any. And with Z2 - you never know - it could change tomorrow.  I've learned to never "assume" anything after playing the last year and a half.

Funny that you quoted my add ;o) , I think Lulu already deleted it - or maybe the wine from the 5.0 pre-party has made my eyes blur and I just can't find my post, lol!!  And yes, I finally saw you and a few others answered me earlier.  Very strange - the forum seems to be delaying today in some threads...it took 2 hours for y'alls posts to appear. Even though I was on and reading the thread.  I just thought everyone left this thread for awhile.  Haha.  ....hmmm...I'm thinking it's the wine.  Bobo has some wild wine.


My nations are closed do not add me, but thank you. My mills are the *only* mills Bobo likes...deal with it.

I don't actually have 5.0 yet, but have noticed some of you commenting on getting a lot of add mes since you started partying. While some of this may be that friends of friends (sounds like facebook :-) show up at parties and get adds from that, those of you getting a lot of fame points are visible to everyone on the fame leaderboards (and those of us still stuck on 4.2 can see all you famous people too, even though we are stuck at fame 0). Those top 100 players are no doubt going to get bombarded with add mes, after their village names appear - oh the price of fame - watch out for the paparazzi :-)

I'm looking forward to partying soon and hopefully with start out with a good hoard of tokens as I've always had at least one of each shop.

Thanks for the info, Legomum. My hubby pointed out the fame board and mentioned the same thing you just said. Oh well, .... the cost of fame and being well known is that everyone knows your name :/

For everyone in 5.0, I have realized every time I make a Bust in the sculptor shop, it gives me a token. Interesting? Yes. Coincidence? Maybe. Truth? Dunno. Anyone else coming across this?

I have noticed it in my neighbor's shops, too. I have noticed mine higher than a few days ago but I am only at 150-ish bonus. I think I've read that they have restored the original XP for sushi.

I am  very sad today. My good friend who talked my husband into getting me an I-Pad for Christmas in 2011 & turned be on to the game that she had been playing since 1210 has deleted the game. She was frustrated by the lack of documentation or instructions in the update.She had the picnic and could not open it with out spending beans.

I hope this update is not the downfall of the game.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here?
Looking through the various posts in the forum it appears to me that no one really knows what is happening with the game
Some people have acces to 5.0 ;most don't , & the ones that do don't know how to play it
It takes a lot of costly trial and error to find out what to do.Some players delete decorations when they are not supposed to,others buy decorations
& gain nothing from it
As far as the 20 beans they offer for compensation , you can use them to buy decorations that will increase your bonus by approximately 1%???
Some players lost hundreds of percentage points from their bonus.
The only words that come to mind are, irresponsible ,childish, and some other ones I don't want to mention here.
How manny more players you need to loose before you put everything back the way it was?


Maxed out on level 80 classic 700% frontier low bonus
No mills on classic or frontier Accept all trades
Add me only if you accept all trades too
I also feel very disappointed with Z2 about 5.0

I am so mad that I didnt get a chance to instal the update. That goes for me and everyone else who doesnt have it. I was just wondering, how long do you think that people like me have to wait for the update to arrive again? I feel so left out because I don't have it. That is my question, when will the update be live again. Will we have to wait another week? Month?

I wonder that too...
Maybe apple is punishing Z2 for having update 5.0 link on their site?
From my 100 + neighbors only another two have 5.0.
I know I was lucky to get it just in time, but
I need you Guys to start partying !

No beans required. You DO have to have tokens, though. You get tokens randomly from your shops.
A bakery, florist, sculptor, tailor, and mess tent is needed for the first few parties you can throw. I suggest you go ahead and build them now, as 5.0 gives you a few tokens for the stores you already had prior to downloading 5.0. Then you'll get a head start. That's better than most of us who got 5.0 first, realized this fact, and had to wait because we had to build the shops and wait for random tokens.

I don't think everything has to go back to the way it was. But more care needs to be taken to the way changes are made and communicated. Rebalancing, for example, is a fine idea, but it seems it should be done by rising the things that are too low, not cutting the high ones.

I worked in IT where our customers were internal and we always worked on changes the customers asked for. Of course, IT had our own ideas too, but we bounced them off the users before implementing them. I guess its different with external customers?

Are you saying you want anyone that has 5.0 now to lose everything they have worked for before you where able to get 5.0 ? I for one have wasted a lot of time and a lot beans trying to figure out how this stupid update works and if TN takes it all away I will be so done with this game.

Not everything. I think They can keep their tokens, but the Points for the Highscore should be reseted, So everybody has the Chance to Climb to the Top of the highscore. Another Option is to raise the points we are earning, so everybody gets the Same Chance.

 You use the tokens to open the picnic and other stuff. You don't keep them. So if you take points away it's the same as taking you XP away from shops. You also have to tap on the picnic every 10 min. to get points. It is very time consuming. Not sure what the answer is but to lose what we have worked for would be a real slap in the face.

Thanks. I already have these shops. I now wonder if this is not the reason why I have a 'please wait' message when I tap a done trade, to count tokens. Or maybe not :-)
