Do any of you play Farmville 2? I used to play until recently. I decided to quit playing the game. That in itself is hard to do as it is a very addicting game. But I found that all it did was keep me in a state of frustration. Why? I’ll tell you.
Initially, when you start playing the creators of the game gently ease you into the planting, harvesting and selling of crops. When you reach a certain level, they begin adding “quests” for you to complete to get this or that animal or farm equipment piece. You are eased into buying Farm Bucks so that you can complete a certain quest or obtain a particular animal or piece of equipment.
Before you know it the “quests” become more and more difficult, urging you to buy more and more Farm Bucks just to skip the difficult parts of the quests or to complete one quest and move on to the next. If you do not pay attention to what is happening, you will spend hundreds of dollars on this game.
But this is the plan of its creators. They want your money, your hard earned money and they know all the tricks to getting it.
They are comparable to drug dealers or gambling houses. They suck you in gradually, until you are hooked. Then they offer more and more addictive items to suck you dry of your time and money.
My advice and I speak as one who knows is STOP!!!! Begin with just one day. Don’t visit FV2 for one day. Then try not visiting for another day. Continue doing this. Say to yourself, “I don’t need to play FV2 today.” Before you realize it, you will have broken the hold they have on you. And you will have extra money in YOUR pocket, not theirs.
