Fresh from the Farm!!!

With today's update, not only do we have new levels but you might also have noticed a new feature being introduced, a new way of activating your companions by making a special match!

Using your companions has just got easier to use now!

πŸ‘‰ Here's how it works!

A tutorial will be provided with instructions on what you need to do, like this one:

Once you have mastered the new feature, keep playing and enjoy the help from your companion!

πŸ‘‰ What has changed you may ask?

With this new feature, you no longer have to collect a certain amount of cropsie in order to activate your companion. Now, special matches with 4 or more cropsies, or in the shape of an L or T, will help fill their energy bar πŸ‘

So farmers, what do you think about this new feature?

    Welcome to the community @dianev21

    I am not quite sure exactly what you need help with as you haven't given many details.

    Are you playing on computer or a device? Clearing cache and cookies resets the hints as it thinks you are a new player.

    If on device, once you have completed each thing again, as long as you do not log out, then they won't appear after the first time for each.

    But nothing is actually broken πŸ™‚

    While you are here, have you had a look at the contest thread? Chance to win rewards πŸ™‚

    No more helps collecting cropsies?

    Now you need to connect 4 or more to get help? And making the 5 doesnt even help.

    Hello @kingSnow πŸ€— Hearty Welcome Back to our Wonderful Farm King Community!

    I am sorry! Looks like there is an issue in your game!

    Can you please explain a bit more, so that I can help you as much as I can?

    Looking forward to talk to you soon.

    I dobt have the "collect 12 carrots to get help" feature. There is some arch, which moves when i connect 4 or more.

    The weekly chalkengw also disapeated in middle of the week...

    Gee, everyday is a new bug, better to give up.

  • PummyRajPummyRaj Posts: 16,735 Farm Moderator

    Hello again @kingSnow πŸ˜ƒ

    When you said "Weekly challenge" -- did you meant the event "Royal Rainbow"?

    ** If so, there was a glitch in that event and showed up to all of the Farmers, where it was supposed to appear to the players who are at the end of the map. After the Farm studio corrected the glitch, the event disappeared from our game. It was not a bug πŸ‘οΈ

    With regards to your main complaint -- "collect 12 carrots to get help feature. There is some arch, which moves when i connect 4 or more"

    I am still not getting the idea about the issue! Can you please show me a screenshot... probably before AND after that arch appears! Like I have mentioned above, I will be able to help you when I have enough details.

    Thank you for understanding πŸ™

    Talk to you soon. Have great rest of the weekend πŸ“ πŸ“ πŸ“

    I have the same issue with the companion help. For example: take the Wolf. It used to require to collect 15 apples for it 'wake' 2 flowers. Now for it to use that ability, you have to match 4 of any kind of cropsie to load it's ability. This makes it so much harder for the companion ability to load.. For example: I have tried level 354 for 20 times now with the Wolf ready to help me, but in this 20 times, the ability never fully loaded cause in that level, it's really hard to match 4 cropsies..

    Hello @LyanneGames πŸ€— Hearty Welcome to our Wonderful Farm King Community!

    I apologize for my delayed reply!

    Let me go check level # 354, and select the same companion as you and see what happens πŸ‘οΈ

    Which device are you using by the way?

  • kingSnowkingSnow Posts: 5 Level 2

    When you said "Weekly challenge" -- did you meant the event "Royal Rainbow"?

    I think so. 45 levels... had for 2 days active, when the team challenge showed up it disapeared.

    As for companion help, Lyanne described it. It happens in any level.

  • PummyRajPummyRaj Posts: 16,735 Farm Moderator

    Thank you @kingSnow πŸ‘οΈ

    Was just going to check the level. I will get back to you both in few minutes.

    Just wondering.. are you playing on a mobile device OR on Windows 10? The reason I am asking is, sometimes, certain glitches appear only on a specific device/platform πŸ€” If I know your device, I can try on that device/platform πŸ™‚

  • PummyRajPummyRaj Posts: 16,735 Farm Moderator

    OK! I understand what the issue is @kingSnow and @LyanneGames πŸ‘οΈ

    I did not realize about it till I went back and played the level that Lyanne mentioned 🀦

    ** The Companion thing -- it is not a glitch or an issue! But, it a "new test" to bring out something NEW and you both are part of that test!

    But, like you said Lyanne, it will not work in the levels where the entire board consists of grumpy Cropsies and/or frozen Cropsies, etc., I guess, that's why, it is a "test"!!!

    Now you know that it is a test, can you both please provide your feedback for the Studio to know what you both thought about "collecting some random Cropsies and make a match to activate the Companion"!

    ** By reading what you wrote, and playing a level with a regular Companion, I felt that it could work if the levels were normal. But, not with Rancid levels and "Frozen" or "Grumpy" Cropsies levels.

    Looking forward to hear from you. Have a great rest of the weekend πŸ₯ πŸ₯

    Hi @PummyRaj!

    Thanks for your effort to clear things. Being part of a test, that makes a lot of sense, since I couldn't find more information about it anywhere.

    I'm personally not a fan of this feature. In some levels, it's impossible to match 4 cropsies.. And also: some of the levels, even without grumpy or frozen cropsies are still really hard, even with the 'regular' companion help. I don't think the companion system should differ each level. I think you guys should keep the system as it was :).

  • Lady_ChooLady_Choo Posts: 16,130 Farm Moderator

    So if I am right, the test is on pause for now @LyanneGames while the studio look at feedback, so thank you for letting us know!

  • PummyRajPummyRaj Posts: 16,735 Farm Moderator

    Completely agree with you, dear Lyanne πŸ€—

    And, yes! Thanks to your feedback πŸ‘Œ Our Farm In-charge has informed us that the test was turned off. It might return in future, but, we don't have to worry about it for now πŸ₯
