I thought that 6 billion points was a huge goal for such a little prize..only 500KC. However, I "thought" that this was an attainable goal. But, according to the progress meter on the contest page, we have done very,very little so far. We are not even a quarter of the way to the goal acording to the meter. Is it possible the meter is wrong? I have been playing tons today, and it looks like several of you have been playing lots too.
GANZ was way off and we played! We have multiple accounts and on each account Goobers Lab was the one to play. Still no trophy but hey after practicing for about 4 hours on Friday to prepare . . . cuz I had only played it once before and found it a bit boring. When I added up the scores we were doing pretty good at an average of a little over 5,000 points per game.
But 6 BILLION? No way as a group can we get that high considering younger children get so very frustrated and the older kids simply got bored and wanted to do chores to get a new pet instead of 500 KC.
The kids had a good argument on that but I keep playing on all accounts any way. Gotta give it the best shot to say "Hey I really, really tried".
My 11yr old pointed out "if you want kinz cash then play the game you get high scores in and you will have more money".
Congrats to all WI and WW members who have been playing and playing this weekend! You all deserve an A+ for effort!
First of all, we need better prizes! I voted for the KC, but only 500? really? The other 3 prizes were wshop stuff. We can get that anytime we want. Why not offer better prizes, or even create totally new prizes for the contest?
That being said, is the progress meter accurate? I feel like we would have made much more progress on the meter, but it has barely moved. I have been playing a lot today, and it looks like many others have been playing lots too. Hopefuly the meter isn't correct, and we will make our goal.
I don't see how we can make the goal and you are so right about offering a better prize! Even the cash plus a Trophy for competing would be an improvement.
People who actually played over the contest time should get a trophy or poster of "Great Participation in the 1st Communal Contest! Those who entered and didn't play would then get only the basic prize while those who contributed should be able to were a badge, show a poster or mount a trophy!
I began playing Goober's Lab for the very first time on my Asian account about 10am Sat morning, Asian time. Of course, this was before MN EST. Even tho I was learning the game and my scores were under 10,000 most of the time, it would have been nice to have these scores included. The contest is why I stayed so long.
I've read here on WI in the past just to keep informed. Finally, this morning I registered. I just had to register to voice my opinion on 6 BILLION?
Yes, it does seem like Ganz miscalculated. But I thought they were way out of the ballpark from the get go when I saw the goal they had set. Now I can stop wasting my time since even they admitted there is no way that goal will be reached.
Ganz you really miscaluclated that-and I'm going to give you props...
THANK you for recognizing that, for admitting it and for telling us you will be rectifying the situation...
THAT is what good business is about, those are the values we try to teach our children, admit when you goof, and try to never do it again..so THANK you! Although this communal contest won't work out, I'm looking forward to many many fun ones in the future! This is a great feature, and I look forward to lots of good times with all of WW banding together for one goal...
