Update 2: It appears that the Double Mastery Event has been turned back on, as our recent harvesting of a field full of lilac resulted in 2 mastery points for each square, as opposed to just one. Happy farming!
Update: Due to the issues being experienced by users who placed the new Tuscany Wedding Tent on their farm (and are now locked out of playing the game – see our post for complete details), Zynga has temporarily disabled Double Mastery in the game. We’ll update this space when we have more information.
The title of the post says it all – for this weekend and this weekend only, all users who play FarmVille and harvest crops will receive double the mastery points for doing so. This means that for each square of a crop you harvest, you won’t just receive one mastery point – you’ll receive two!
While this is already a great deal for those trying to master some of the higher level crops (that take thousands of squares to raise a single level), it can become even better when including the new Farmers Market bonus Bushel feature that we told you about on Thursday.
Consume a bushel of a crop of your choosing, and the normal +1 Mastery Point boost will go into effect, and will stack on top of the Double Mastery Weekend event, giving you a total of 3 points of mastery for every single square of a crop that you harvest!
What are you waiting for? Head over to the game’s page on Facebook to take advantage of this great offer while there’s still time!
(Note: As of this writing, the FarmVille servers are giving users errors while playing the game, so if you can’t get your farm to load now – it seems hit or miss – simply wait a few hours, and we’re sure Zynga will have it fixed with plenty of time to rack up some serious Mastery Points in the game)
