FrontierVille Cheats & Tips: How to get ahead without neighbors

FrontierVille Cheats and Tips
Look, we know social games are all about making friends and fostering relationships, but sometimes you simply don't have the time to wait around for your friends to answer that help request. Thankfully, FrontierVille Info reader Anna has come up with a solution to the problem. (And we're bummed we didn't think of it sooner.) Just make a few mock Facebook accounts.

OK, we know it sounds a bit ... off-putting. But so long as you don't abuse the power of Facebook, it's all good--especially considering how militant Facebook has become on shutting down suspicious accounts. But follow our simple two-step process and you should be just fine (and much better off for it).

1. Fraud is Fun's Best Friend

FrontierVille helpNow don't get your undies in a bunch--this is just Facebook, folks. You're not committing a felony here. Many of you likely have two accounts as is (one for standard use and the other for gaming). So, just sign up for an extra Gmail account or whatever mail service you prefer, and create a new account in your name.

Then, input some basic information and a relevant image. This can be a piece of art or whatever your heart desires, but it helps if you use your own face and ... human-sounding name. Then, install FrontierVille (this works with any Facebook game, really) and befriend your "true" account with both of the "fakes."

2. Reaping the Rewards

Now, every time you send a request in FrontierVille for a Goal or a new building, just use your brand new accounts to immediately send those items on over. Of course, this requires you to log in and out of your accounts somewhat rapidly, but anything beats waiting around for the one or two friends that actually respond to your requests. Anna also points out that these requests can be responded to almost every 20 minutes:
When I request an item, I go to my fake account and click the accept button. Then I copied the link of the request page then after few minutes (give it 15-20 minutes), copy paste the link again in your browser and you can send the item again.
And there you have it. A way to be self-sufficient in FrontierVille--and nearly any social game--for those pivotal moments when you just can't rely on your stable of gamer friends to come through. As an added tip, it comes especially in handy for Timed Goals and to avoid wasting Energy on crop harvests required for Goals.
