Light-bulbHow I went from Level 20 to Level 25 in five minutes - without cheating or hacking

It's what we all want when we play one of these games. We want to level up quickly so we can get access to all the stuff that is just out of our reach. And once we've done that, we then want to level up quickly again so we can get access to all the stuff that is now just out of our reach. And this cycle continues to repeat itself.

So imagine my delight when I managed to increase five levels, from Level 20 to Level 25, in less than five minutes...... all without cheating or hacking.

What's my secret? Luck. Pure luck.

Earlier this evening, I contact Zynga Live Chat after FarmVille 2 wouldn't allow me to collect any reward posts despite not having collected anything since 9 AM this morning. The agent who helped me was very polite (two polite agents in a row - what is going on?) and apologetic. She took a look at my account and then said she would refresh it to get rid of some bugs to see if that would fix things for me.

When she was done, she said she would give me a pack of Milk Bottles, a pack of Fertilizer, and 1000 XP. While I wasn't expecting any XP, much less that much, I was grateful. I knew it would be enough to level up to Level 21. I thanked the agent and went back to my farm.

So imagine my surprise when, after clearing my Flash and browser caches, I logged into my farm and found myself at Level 25. Just like that. I was Level 20, but was now Level 25. Without cheating or hacking.

Clearly, the Live Chat agent made a mistake when she added the XP to my account. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. This gave me access to all those item that had just been out of my reach. Playing catchup with those items and tasks will keep me busy for a little while.

Sometimes, it's good to be me.

Cool

@Lisa Kay Ruetz - Even if I get to Level 40, I won't have nothing to do. Still, I'm only at level 36 cause I take plenty of time off from the game right now.

You missed all the fun of playing those levels though.You'll wish you had them back when you get to 40 faster and nothing left to do.

@Rebecca Tom - I specifically left her name out cause I didn't want to get her in trouble. But I now honestly don't remember who it was.

I just got through on this link click on live chat above the email option :-)

yeah, i agree with a couple of the other posts here, what is the point of this if it has no actual help value? some of us can't even find a "live chat" link. all i can find a circle that takes me from one link to the next that talks about Zynga's policies and how to write an effective e-mail. does anyone have an e-mail for them? i can't find that either.

so if only some of us matter, why are we all playing? i haven't been able to get into my game for two days, i am out of all quests i was trying to finish, so my attitude now if 'F8' it, i liked farmville 2 enough that if they had brought it out for home play i would have probably purchased it, now....forget it.

I also had FarmVille 2 mess up, and talked to a live agent after the third time of repeating a quest all I wanted was to get my garlic to take that I sold they reimbursed me on my garlic I went over gave me extra 10 waters, and made sure I could get back into the game ,and all was as it should of been to keep playing. So My advice is when something goes wrong in a game go to zynga and talk to live agent they will check your game and correct things if they can and also sometimes give ya a lil extra for their game messing up!

@Johnny Rhea - How in the world is it a "loose definition?" I wasn't lying about the problem I was having at the time, nor did I ask the Live Support agent for any type of handout. And I didn't access their servers to change anything, so there was no hack on my part. This was simply a mistake by the Live Support agent that was to my benefit.

very loose definition of "without cheating or hacking"

@Mike Jonez & @Toula Gouros

I simply went to the Zynga Support page for FarmVille 2. The Live Chat option shows up just above the Email Us option. It has showed up for me every time I have visited the page, though others have told me they can't ever see it.

What is all this talk of live support. It took 25 minutes of getting the run around for me just to get a email link to them. Even the contact us link just took me back to the forum page. That was this morning and the confirm email says to wait 48 hours : (
