This guide is intended mainly for newer and/or smaller players who don't have a big group (fam/club/etc.) to support them. Especially those in sfw with fams/groups. I tried to lay out all the options, but keep in mind everyone has different play styles so use your best judgement. Although I am mainly a party fairy I've gotten into quite a few sfws and used all of these tactics besides paying cease fire. I wrote this based on what has and hasn't worked. Each section heading is bold, colored, and underlined. Subsections are numbered-skip to what you need. Tips for before/while being farmed: 1. Hide your cash. This is easy for small players. Don't use the bank or buy piggy banks if you can avoid it. PIMDbanks take 25% interest while the bank takes 20%. Instead, send 10bil pineapple pizza gifts to friends and alternate accounts. They need to keep them pending until you want the cash back then they reject the gifts. Bigger players just hire tuts, the more expensive the better and less likely to be stripped. 2. Self-pin (sp) Either do this on parties, jobs, or by farming others. Its your choice but any way denies your farmers the satisfaction of farming you. 3. Be wise with your tuts If you are smaller and your tuts get hired/stripped away by your farmers make it as hard for them as possible. Find out your tut bonus, or just a little over and divide it amongst 250 small tuts. This takes time to establish, but it makes it so hard to be stripped. Most farmers won't bother. When your tuts are stripped, unless you love them (then overprice them), don't hire back. Get new ones. Congratulations, Your farmer just gave you cash! 4. Don't leave links I break this rule a lot, but understand that they will always have easy access to you. Gifts and wall posts can be saved forever. If you must talk to your farmer, add them and delete it if they don't accept or after the convo. Ways to make farmers disappear: 1. Ignore them Don't add them, don't wall them, keep gifts pending (be prepared to keep it for over a month), pretend they don't exist. This works most of the time. It takes patience and "idgaf." 2. Pay CF (ceasefire) Not recommended. Here is the deal, most farmers will send a contract for paying cf. Its long. Its complicated. Its humiliating. Its so, so cheesy. However, if you only want to play on the game, hit parties, and not be bothered by nfs all day it might be tempting. If you do pay cf try to either get protection from them and/or try to get out of walling the apology and showing everyone you paid cf. Paying cf to one person/group makes you an easy target for future groups. Note for Clubs: As much as I hate the idea, clubs pay cf all the time. The admin are worried about their members leaving and the club dying. If you decide to pay cf make sure its worth it and get protection from the fam/alliance farming you so you (hopefully) never need to pay cf again. 3. Play Nice This. This is my go-to. We are playing a game so have fun. When I add my farmers I laugh with them and I joke with them. I have nothing against farming and have gotten a few cfs myself so I get the draw to playing this way. They don't always stop farming you (almost never right away) but at least you made a friend. They will move on eventually like someone you ignored. However, some farmers are so cold and professional. Pick up on these cues because being friendly and fun with them will only annoy them. 4. Farm them Back Lololololol, no don't. This could work for an individual farming you but if you hit one person in a fam, ten more will hit back. Unless they are unloved. Poor them. It might be fun to do once or twice-forever (you do you) but if you want to not be farmed anymore see steps 1 and 3. Note for Clubs: Maybe this can work. But only do this if your club/alliance is comparable in strength to the one against you. This would ideally result in a real ceasefire where everyone agrees to not fight. Without any misc being exchanged. Or, you can get cfs from individuals in that group. Welcome to farming. 5. Peace Tag This is a great way to make people mad, get them to call you out, and make them do math for the exact moment it ends. Its not a good way to get them to stop unless you have a lot of peace tags. The only time I recommend using peace tags is when you have a lot of cash out or flashing. Maybe when you go on vacation. At any rate, its a temporary solution so never think "I'll use this one day peace tag the tutorial gave me and my problems will be solved." Nope, sometimes they come back harder. 6. Pay a farmer/Ask a friend I put this last because it won't work on big fams. Not usually small fams either. However, if there is one person or a small group farming you or your club go for it. Just please make sure they are trustworthy and good at what they do. There are so many people who think they are the best farmer ever-they aren't. Also, the payment needs to be less than what cf would be ofc. Usually half from what I've seen but it depends on difficulty of the farm. Some helpful information abput farming and cfs: 1. Most of us know that cf's cannot be anything involving ec's (extra credits). This includes mainly furniture and changing names. It does not include breaking relationships. This has been confirmed with ATA. 2. Cfs MUST be asked publicly so ATA can make sure that there is one and that's its fair. This means it needs to be posted to a wall. They can read deleted posts as well so that's not an issue. If you are blocked, refused cf, or being given an illegal cf-see the section about it submitting tickets. 3. Farmers get paid per hit based on their stats and health and your stats. Your cash plays very little into it. However, the cash you lose depends a lot on how much cash you have out. You could be losing hundreds of billions per hit and they will still be making only in the millions. Farming has never been about getting cash, just taking it. Thinking of sending in a support ticket? First: please don't waste ATA's time if they are following the rules. PvP is part of the game-try to enjoy it. However, if they are breaking rules whether its refusing to give a public cf ATA can read, asking for ec items, or you are blocked, do it. You need to understand a couple things though. ATA has a lot of people daily who complain about being farmed so they have an auto-response for it. You need to get past that so be specific and persistent. Also, they are busy so will take time to respond. Be patient with them. One more thing, this could make your farmers hit you harder so if you think they will go away on their own I suggest waiting. At least a few days but better a week. And one more thing: Have fun! This is a game so if you are not having fun please take a step back, take a break, do something different. Either in game or real life. Love yah!
