    It seems people still don't understand that 1 hour jobs are not half as good as 2 hour jobs. The reward values were changed so that 1 hour jobs are just as good as 2 hour ones were previously. You can still do just as many 1 hour jobs overnight as you could 2 hours, there really is no benefit to having a 2 hour job system. Direct your attention to my rather large rant from a few pages back for more information:

    why we have to tell our opinion, if InnoGames dont care about?

    57% like 2hours back, and what we get? 15 sec, 10mins, 1 hour

    are u kidding me InnoGames? or just trolling around?

    Give me a reason. Give me one single reason why 2 hour jobs are better than 1 hour if they have the same rewards.

    4 X 1h00 = 4h00 (you can go to sleep, but have to get up in the middle of the night)
    4 X 2h00 = 8h00 (you can go to sleep and leave de doll working)

    The West is a part, small and to have some fun, off my life, Not the other way around... gotcha?

    It's in this point that each and every time InnoGames fails, they think that this is our life. :whistle:

    Yeah but doing 1 hour jobs, you finish working faster and you get more time to regen some energy for tomorrow. :p

    I think you're missing quite a fundamental point here. How exactly is doing four jobs and sitting idle for four hours any different to doing jobs for eight hours? Who says you have to get up in the middle of the night and queue more jobs just because you can?
     
  13. I agree... and I wish for a long time it could be the same for sleepling, instead of those quite useless Hotel levels...

    A small nap when you need to recover a few energy points for another job/duel... A long night when you want to refill all your energy bar... :cool:

    Not everyone has premium automation and can do 8 jobs in a row overnight. That's why ppl want 2 hour jobs. Now with the 1 hour jobs we only can do 4 jobs (or 3 jobs and sleep) That's 3 hours of work. With 2 hour jobs we could work for 6 hours and then sleep.

    But once again, what's the difference when it's all for the same reward.

    Oh I got it... its so frustrating for them to know that they are doing nothing in game....
     
  17. I'm so lazy that I prefer to queue 4x 2 hours jobs, so my energy bar will be empty and I will be able to sleep quietly for the rest of the day :p

    That's the only thing you should see! You work less, you get the same reward faster and you can regenerate doing nothing :)

    Doing nothing is your biggest problem? That's why you want 2 hour jobs? Than come here, in Romania, I will give you 4 hours' money but you will work for me for 8 hours. I could live with that :-/ How is that for you? :)

    I must say, I see his point.

    You get the same reward with 4x 1h jobs as would with 4x 2h jobs, but the premium people are advancing even further as they can work 8h during the night, and nonpremium can only do the 3h + sleep.

    That's as it was pre-2.0 and even so far during 2.0. Premium people pay for that advantage, there's really no point to having Automation premium active if you'll always be back online to queue more jobs before your current ones finish.
