I totally agree. I am not REMOTELY interested in finding out "who is the better time agent." I haven't played a Blitz since they started this. I really think the developers have no clue to the kinds of people who are attracted to Gardens of Time. They ARE capable of learning, though. They are giving us more "gardeny" items ... at least at the moment!

I really hope this means they fixed the issues on the other games that, as far as I know, have still not been fixed. I don't understand adding this glitchy system, knowing there are problems with it.
The new Blitz Challenge is extremely reprehensible. I have several challenges and I can almost never answer them because when I try, either
that stupid little spinning pocket watch spins ad infinitum without ever loading the challenge, or the screen goes black, and stays that way.
In the past hour I attempted to answer several challenges (I gave each one five minutes to load), with the expected result: several kept
spinning, and one went black.
Is this someone's bright idea of trying to "spice up the game" - pit one player against another, and have them at each other's throats?
What I have always liked about Gardens of Time was the amicable quality of the game; this suggests almost a form of "mind control"
being visited upon the players for the delectation of the people who create the game.
The worst part of it is that this is occurring during one of the most disastrous summers on record. Some of our Facebook friends are
suffering because they are in a fire zone right now, and I myself am barely holding on, thanks to the freakish 100-degree weather
that started in June. (I can hardly use my air conditioner because the private utility that has a choke hold on the area charges exorbitant
rates so they can pay their shareholders huge dividends; they brag that "they have no Federal oversight!")
It is VERY FOOLISH of Playdom to chase away dedicated players, given the teetering condition of the economy. (One GOT player who became
disgusted and left admitted that she was spending $200 per month on the game. In the old days, a company would have COSSETTED an
individual such as she.)
However, this may just be a "grand experiment" to test our interactions, then someday - they'll just "roll up the game," and we'll be left
standing, wondering just what in blue blazes happened.
I'm really ambivalent about continuing; it used to be enjoyable but now - I feel as though we're being controlled. If I'm wrong, I'll
be the first to admit it. If I'm right - I must sadly take my conge, and soon...
I have not played 1 single blitz since PD has changed it. I used to like to do the Blites and you earn more coins this way. I play this game for fun and not to outdo another person. This is just a terrible change.
A very simple solution to the problem was already given - TWICE - in this thread.
I just went and tried it. It truly is very simple. You click. You play. You "X". You don't send your score.
Voila! Problem solved.

I used to go to neighbors' gardens daily; now, I only go if someone came to my garden. There's no fun in the neighbor find-it scenes any more; GofT took away the joy by turning it into an "I'm better than you are" garbage competition. I absolutely despise them, and it's one more thing they've killed for me. If they keep killing bits and pieces of the game, how much will be left to keep me here? I have one foot out the door.
no one HAS to challenge anyone or accept any challenges.
