Farmerama Info Boxes: Player Power Wins Through

Valentine MeeAfter having received so many complaints from the players regarding the new Info Boxes, Bigpoint have made the following announcement:

Howdy Farmers,

We have noticed that you are not really happy with our new info layers in the game.

We’ll therefore try our best to improve them:

  • On the market we’ll make it possible to put up more than one offer with one click ( for example 8×1 carrots instead of 1×8 carrots)
  • We’ll rework the complete info box system to reduce the amount of layers and use a system (like a small window) where you can see a type of a log (which you don’t have to click away) where you can see what happens when. (For example when you received a certain item, EP, Currency etc).

We hope to present you this in approximately one month!

Thanks for your understanding and patience

Your Farmerama-Team

Well done and a big “Thank you” to all those players who voiced their disapproval.

This is, of course, another muddled announcement because the first item has nothing to do with Info Boxes it is a Market issue which has long been wanted by so many players.

For our part we have long thought that a single, scrollable Info Box would have been a much better way to present the game messages to players. How well Bigpoint can implement it, and how much testing they themselves do before releasing it, even in a Beta version, remains to be seen.

What a shame that Bigpoint couldn’t have thought all this through before wasting so much time and effort.

That said, we are pleased that they have finally come to their senses.
