I don’t understand the logic of increasing the rate of food consumption in POF. Most nerfs are justified based on logic that “the nerf happened because the game was not being played the way it was intended.” Okay, well now players are just starving zygomytes and using honeycombs to make them happy / healthy when they reach elder maturity because the cost of feeding zygomytes is insane. Players are not buying zygos with shiny breeding traits anymore and no one cares about other traits anymore because they all want 120 farm for the update.

The food nerf is hypocritical. Also, I am not complaining about the Xp nerf so I don’t want any nerds on this thread saying that I am complaining about the XP nerf.

think you answered yourself here. jagex realised a mistake with food consumption that they didnt foresee. and fixed it

apprently after 120 farming there is going to be a new mushroom. which is very easy to obtain keeping cost lower.
as you seem to ranting not really at food consumption. just one specific one of zygos as mushrooms are harder to obtain than rest

I found feeding pof animals 'expensive' in that I actually bought feed. Increasing the amount of feed needed just discourages players from playing pof .
If Farmers are getting to much xp then reduce the xp gained. Which encourages them to farm more rather than abandon their farms as they 'cost' to much to run, either time or gp.
I quite like pof now I have finished and the bank/barn updates have reduced over stocking vs sales. Though I can easily afford to buy in fish to feed the 3 pens of black dragons, a pen of Zygo's is not on my 'to do list'.

I agree with the original post. The increase in food consumption was totally unnecessary & discourages playing the POF altogether. It's not just the expense with the Zygos.

I was breeding spiders but stopped bothering with it because even though seeds are cheap, the spiders just go through the food far too quickly. Previously, if I didn't log in to do the farm for a few days, I was okay. Since the nerf, I log in to empty troughs with sick & unhappy spiders. The nerf didn't just make feeding zygos prohibitively expensive, it bled all the fun out of bothering with POF at all.

I feel that overall the food increase hasn't really hurt me. All of the animals prices have dropped by at least half. Before the update I was paying 100k per baby Chin, 200k each for Zygo and Dragons. They are all selling for at least half of those prices, if not more than half.

My biggest complaint is, my animals get sick, when they have food. They should not be getting when they have food. Sickness is causing me the most problems, needing to use honeycomb to boost stats before harvesting after they ate up all that food!!

I wholeheartily agree with this post. The POF nerf resulted in me going from logging in every day to play, to not logging in for 6 to 10 days at all because POF was one of the only reasons I played and one of the few fun things I enjoyed. With POF being ruined with expensive food costs, its just not fun to play any more, and if I keep not getting enjoyment from the game there is not much point playing.

The increase in food consumption is a huge problem and ruined POF for me, and got me so I barely log in once ever 6 to 10 days now.
