Word of warning to users looking to increase multipliers

Prev1
I've went from being a long term freemium players with a multiplier of about 300% to a premium player with a multiplier of 2250% in 6 months.

During the progression I had a target of 2000% and was focused on that.

It made me log in far too much but was enjoyable.

I couldn't wait to buy all the premium items.

When I reached 2000% I slowed down and was making 250 donuts a day by kem farming.

I have now bought every premium character available.

I've bought all unique items in both Springfield and Krusty land.

Ive emptied every mystery box the last 3 times

I own all the land and every aspirational.

My money and donut balance now goes up that fast I even use donuts to rush quest lines.

Point I'm making is now I reached my target I feel a bit empty.

It's as if I've broke the game and it's not as enjoyable.

Plus I'm only 500 items below item cap so even feel restricted with new items.

Just wonder what other high end premium players think and also for lower end premium players to realise what may wait for them once they reach their high multiplier goal.

    I focus on events but also on reaching over a billion IGC and a large donut reserve in case something ever happens to restrict donut farming. Not to mention actually designing in the game. I'm at 2026.69% and close to 800 mil IGC and at around 7800 items.
  • Bravo, my thoughts exactly.
    We keep hearing from some how they finished an act or event real early and now their bored! Some people will shove a whole candy bar into their mouth and then bemoan their not having candy whilst their friends are savoring the wonderfulness of theirs.
    Being first doesn't always mean winning. Remember, the second mouse gets the cheese.

    What was your process/method?

    I have a very healthy multiplier, over $1B in game currency and I've never enjoyed the game more :) I still remember all those months (years?) of struggling and I don't miss them one tiny bit. I love being able to purchase what I like, when I like. I love being able to play the game with no restrictions like not having enough money or donuts. My game is fun, relaxing and I'm able to play without worry or concern. I'm sorry you weren't able to experience a sense of comfortable euphoria.
    You got a great looking town~168sean... Checked out your town, WOW! ~daved
  • Yes, my sentiments exactly. I have a 2020.50% multiplier.
    I have 1317 Donuts
    49,731,79 in cash.
    Need two pieces of Land. Waiting for the two freebies in parts 2 and 3, or maybe I won't, and save them.
    Krustyland, all done. nearly 1 million in tickets.
    KEM farming is a pain. I'm down to doing 25 at a time now.
    I never went hog wild on the Mystery boxes.
    I have the Springfield Dam in Roads to Riches. Will start then next one soon.
    Plenty of resources in Springfield Heights. Using Googleplex to add more.
    A monorail which goes around the perimeter of Springfield, with 252 Short Track, 254 Straight Track, 301 S Curve, and 428 Curved in inventory. I'm going to stop building more, until we get enough land expansions to warrant this. I don't need the 5 donuts per week, and I can build my trash very high with the Surveillance post.
    I don't play the Claw Machine, Excavation Site, or The Eliminator.
    I have about 7,000 items, I was getting a 7200 limit warning farming KEM's.
    I do want to increase my multiplier a bit, but only so I can start storing my SH buildings. Then I can tweak the design of my town, always having a bit of room for the next event.
    I'm using 4 hour tasks by day, 8 hours by night, I want to eventually get to mostly 24 hour tasks.
    I wait for a few PC and NPCs I don't have to return, as well as other unique content I missed to come back.
    Meanwhile, I just keep playing, not bored at all, but I have set the above standards for myself.
  • I've been setting myself ever higher targets; going to hit 8000% multiplier and $4 billion pretty soon... then it'll be something else... looking forward to putting lots more houses and other buildings into inventory once I hit the $ limit and farming becomes pointless... still missing some limited time characters and other desirable items too!

    Also, of course there are (dare I say it) other games where new challenges await! :)
  • Yeah my Springfield heights is fully upgraded as well and I have all the resources 200-300 above the max limit.

    Except the pills which I have nearly a 1000.

    My krustyland I have about 500 k tickets.

    I have no goals now except increasing igc and donut balance.

    To the user asking how I got so high in mulitiplier

    I took advice from another forum member on here

    I had about 100 donuts from mini games. I turned on the collider for 10 days and then farmed 25 kEMS at a time 4 times a day.

    It then started building my donut balance.

    Once I had enough I would buy items in events that a good multiplier.

    I wouldn't buy characters or buildings.

    I would invest my daily donut balance into mystery boxes and that would increase multiplier the quickest.

    I started every day with a donut balance of zero after my binge mb buying the night before

    Once I built donuts up I never let the collider go below 30 days.

    It's a long process.
  • I got Chester and the skater bully kid. That's some kind of turning point for me. When you buy Zuthros or Zathor or whoever the last nuclear employee is, that's when you know you're just buying whatever now.

    That sweet morsel of victory before death means nothing to you? Remember, YOLO!
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.

    Hah, yeah. If you're so bored without making another purchase, probably have most everything. But that's more an EA providing more content issue, no?

    I'm nowhere close to this stage. Though, I do buy some characters that don't mean much to me.

    I don't plan to get to 2000%, but as I get closer I might. I'm over 700% now maybe going for 800...much less 1000.

  • For what it's worth...I just built my multiplier up by 16.5% with 6 boardwalk fountains from the vault. Stored my 10 SH Deluxe Condos and 2 Private Islands, or 12%. I'll keep at this until all SH monstrosities are gone. I hate them, but do enjoy the hidden XP. and don't want to dump them all at once. A bit greedy here....Still, one day they will all be gone!
  • For me, achieving a high bonus percentage actually helps to free me a lot of time from spending time in harvesting income. Never had to worry about buying premium items anymore and could rush tasks if I want to. I didn't feel empty back when I am 2000%. Somehow I am consumed by a rush to improve it further.

    I would have loved to decorate the town more but the lack of space, the need of always shifting things around and item count, these caused me to just do simple designs.

    Now in free time I will save up donuts for rainy days. Inspired by @Jonalinn , @sflowers330 etc.
  • Use this as a chance to rebuild. Take out what you don't really like.
  • It's kind of the same for me in real life. I have so much money I literally do not know what to do with it all. I've bought private jets, yachts and islands. I have more beautiful women throwing themselves at me than I know what to do with. I even played a game where I went out one day to see how much of what I saw in my field of view I could buy, and I found I was able to buy it all - that was in Dubai, I tried the same in Paris the following weekend.

    I am so rich, but impossibly bored. Let this be a warning to those accumulating enormous wealth. Do any other insanely rich people here feel the same way?
  • @168sean168 - completely agree and thanks :)
  • There is a old twilight zone episode where a gambler dies and he goes to heaven where there is a casino built for him that he can't loose in. After a while he gets bored and then realizes he is in his own private hell.
  • I decided not to go the massive multiplier route because I knew I'd get bored with the game.
    It's better for my personal game play to have to work a little towards the premium content that I really want rather than just having it all.
  • There is a old twilight zone episode where a gambler dies and he goes to heaven where there is a casino built for him that he can't loose in. After a while he gets bored and then realizes he is in his own private ****.

    I thought I had seen all of them. Guess I'd better go hunt that one up.
  • Word of warning: you'll get everything you ever wanted in this game.

    Okay thanks anything else

    Personally, I look forward to the day that my multiplier is so high that I can build a few Kwik-E-Marts and earn enough donuts to blast myself through an event in one day. Then I can enjoy the game and stop worrying about having to collect everything constantly. Gotta collect from the 3 hour buildings. Gotta collect from the 4 hour buildings. Gotta tap out all my characters and send them on another round of tasks...
