    Drawbacks to a one-person hood

    Can a one-person hood climb the leaderboard? Or could one person have a hood with a second account?

    You can run 10 hoods all by yourself with 300 accounts, if that's what you're asking. Or start 300 independent 1-man hoods. You'd climb the leaderboard with other 1man hoods. Drawback? It's not very fun, i guess.

    Pros: No drama. No begging. No intrusive neighbor asking personal questions.
    Cons: No one to turn to for help. No one to trade small amounts of upgrade items. Town play is limited to just the eggspress train, so those derby tasks are harder.

    I have three neighborhoods. My main farm has the largest neighborhood. Filled with equal parts derby players and casual players. My second farm is in a neighborhood with just one other person. My low level is in with 3 other people. They are all fairly quiet self sufficient farms so it works out well for us.

    Well i am a one person hood with 7 farms for me the big plus to being solo is zero dramas,no waiting and hoping others do derby tasks and no selfish farmer demanding help every two seconds as for climbing the leaderboard unless you have a ton of time i wont bother the problem with solo hoods it does make derbies harder i was in the top league but got frustrated how quick certain farmers would complete the derby and the final straw came when all hoods got max points and 3 still got relagated causing me to retire from derbies so in my opinion derbys are best suited to proper hoods

    If you join a Valley and can't not afford to play Valley on all farm, that Valley will suffer from inactivity...

    Derby only affect your own hood, but Valley has plenty of players from other places. Some of them might really want to buy from exclusive shop.

    I played solo for 2+ years with a 6-farm hood, and for me the best part of the derby then was that I didn't have to play it other peoples way, I always waited till the end of the week, Sat. or Sun., let the crazies have their race, I usually found myself with a very quiet race, a few times I even raced alone!! that was fun... When I decided to try having a regular (very small) hood I quickly discovered that other people will not wait, so I derby their way and we hardly ever get anything... BUT in my second hood, just me and my 3 farms, I happily collect top 3 on a regular basis...

    I agree even though you only compete against other one-person hoods. Now I realize I may have been competing against one person with more than one farm. One particular derby is biased against single-person hoods. I found it too frustrating and opted out—don’t know if I’ll return. I did like getting the decorations though.

    Thanks to everyone for the responses. I guess it’s just personal choice and how a person wants to play the game. I only have one account and not sure it would be worth it to try and play with 2-3 accounts. Anyway, thanks for the info!
