I just want to say nerfing the breeding rates and food needed per hour will do nothing for the value of seeds. The reason seeds crashed is because of magic beans. Yes the xp factors in too but that's only a small part of the problem. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

For anyone who doesn't know, magic beans instantly grow all farm patches depending on the seed. So why use regular seeds waiting several hours when you can use magic beans for instant xp? The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

5 hours game play only means they were logged in for 5 hours....not that it took them 5 hours in realtime to max the skill. POF is very much an idle skill that needs little in person maintenance.

You can max all skills with treasure hunter in 5 hours assuming you can afford it.

If they're basing this off one player, I call bullcrap. They probably TH keyed to 99 farming. No way can you go from 0-99 in five hours and some odd minutes. Not to mention breeding times for mid-high level animals. So because someone bought keys, all other players are being punished.

What about the 1 million bean accomplishment? This would take a player more than 1 year with 1 dragon every 10 days in a breeding pen and 1 dragon every 50 days in a normal pen, 1 zygo every 25 days in a regular pen, 1 chin every 5 days in a regular pen.

All it's going to do is sky-rocket the GE value of unchecked animals so that people can buy this accomplishment.

Magic beans are the problem. Why would I plant a normal magic tree and wait 24 hours for it grow when I can plant 1 every 5 minutes? That means I could plant 288 trees in a 24 hour period. It's way more likely that someone got 99 by planting magic seeds than from animals.

If they need to make adjustments, they should decrease xp and nerf magic beans, not change breeding rates.
