I think if your going to give reward points it should be those in the neighborhood themselves, not to the 2 top neighborhoods. There is no incentive otherwise for people to work at improving there game if they see there own neighborhoods do not end up in the rps every once in awhile.

As of this week I am no longer playing the NCC, I just refuse to work so hard and spend my rps on additional facilities when the only reward for doing so is products, something I really do not need. I'd rather the products be something I needed. To me, there is just no incentive to play the NCC part of the game. So, Farm Town gets no more me using my own cash to buy FT rps for facilities. Yes I'll still buy new facilities, update other things, but I'm not going to play the NCC as long as it is unfair to individual neighborhoods. That's also a sad loss for my own neighborhood, I didn't just sit around and play once daily, I've ranked in the top 10 since I started playing the NCC, and in the last few months, top 3 to 5 because I stepped up my game. I won't be doing that anymore and that is a loss for my neighborhood points wise. Give me an incentive, give others an incentive to step up there play. Products are nice for new people, but even they will want to be in a top spot at some point also, when it's only products, there is no incentive.
Hi SeamsToBe Sew,
I have moved your post to the General Feedback subject thread for Discussions about the NCC as you are not asking a question or about a problem that we can help you with.

Hi Lasly Daab,
Your last post about this was answered.

Your NCC is disabled in your game preferences.

Go to your game settings and add a check mark to Enable NCC then click the green check mark.



When you have done that and the new facilities show up in the NCC, make sure that you start a batch in one of the facilities from there BEFORE you load them via any other method like the facility on the farm or the Facility Manager.

SeamsToBeSew I agree entirely before i used to get in the top 2 often just by my own hard work . Now I've never been higher than 5 more often 8 or even 10. I just give up with it .

Default Ncc

That's it I am not going to bother with the NCC anymore. I am so fed up of being pitted against my neighbours, 3 this week not just one. Why add neighbours to help with NCC score when they are just put against you, it's wrong. Thinking about giving up Ft altogether

Hi Vivienne,
The game must choose 10 players that are close in the number of facilities available in the contest. Sometimes to do that it may only have a few to select from and thus your neighbors also end up as your competitors.

The difference now is your score that you add to those neighbors team are many points less than the amount you add to your own team. So your scores are not tied directly to each other as it depends on how many neighbors you have on your team and how much you can reload your own facilities.

I still don't agree with putting our neighbours against us in the NCC it's not right. It never happened before when the NCC first started and wasn't like that for a long time. I am not the only one complaining about it. With so many playing Ft (2.4m) likes and I only have 114 neighbours I don't see the need to put neighbours against one another. If it wasn't for helping my neighbours out with the NCC I would not participate but then I would lose good neighbours. I am just so fed up with it as are a lot of players so why do it?

Hi Vivienne

You may see there are 2.4m likes for the game, but that doesnt mean all those persons are still playing and/or they all are doing the NCC.

We have explained you why sometimes the neighborhoods you are competing against may have some of your own neighbors, but we cant do anything about that.

If you wish you can post your idea in Suggestions, but not sure something can be done if there are not many available neighborhoods with same strength to choose from.
You cant start a new thread there but you can post as a reply to a thread that fits with your idea.
This is the link to Suggestions

I am also tiring of the NCC. There must be a better way to group the people playing, it always seems to be the same two or three who are in the top position by many many points ahead of everyone else. I would prefer to play to catch and go ahead of neighbor's but that is not possible when someone is 30,000 points ahead. I have every facility but unfortunately only have one neighbor who plays, everyone else has given up. Would it not be better to select groups by past playing history? At least then we should be closer together. Also I find it strange that sometimes you have two different neighbors with exactly the same points, how can that happen. Anyway I am also thinking about dropping the NCC game.

I too am getting tired of seldom being in the top few. I used to be in the top category frequently but now I am seldom in the top.
