Can you buy the new land?

Prev13456710
So far, I can't see any way to get the new land except with free land tokens. I don't have enough to unlock all the new land, but I have loads of in-game coins....

    I wish I knew before I started buying. I would have bought one strip instead of starting both. I was just planning on using money for the rest.
  • Can any players who didn’t have all the land unlocked before this event started comment on whether or not this has changed previously available land? Land that could be bought for cash before the event can now only be bought with tokens? This would completely break the game for new players

    Exactly. This doesn't work well at all.

    all land available before the event is still purchasable via in game currency as it was before.

    That seems to indicate this is not a bug. Which is pretty disheartening
  • What’s the point of in game cash anymore, this sucks if you can’t buy land and have to grind away at land tokens - if these take ages to obtain this may very well cause me to quit playing; I’ve played since the beginning! Hopefully I’m wrong but initial impressions......
  • I wonder how long until EA starts selling land tokens for real world cash?

    Seems like that’s the plan. Need to make cash off of older players somehow. Game is dying, I would buy the platinum scratchers and other real cash items just to support the game but the writing is on the wall with this, game is on its last legs
  • I’m defo not spending any more real cash on this game, I’ve spent more than my fair share over the years, I’ve now got a reasonable amount of in game cash and a small KEM farm to replenish my donuts during events, if that’s not enough for EA then I’m out.

    hmmm. I didn't count how many tiles there were to buy. I have 8 left from last event and not sure how many this one gives out. What about water?

  • I had 9 land tokens, which I have now used. The remaining 43 land tiles say I can't unlock as I don't have any free land tokens. The last event I got 8 from. It will be virtually impossible to open all this new land.

    It could be that the new land becomes available for cash after the event is over. But I don't think that will be the case somehow.

    Edited to add that we might be able to win land tokens in a permanent mini game after the event?
  • the land is probably a way to get you to right at this very spend your free land tokens on instinct. I bet as the event progresses the grinding mechanic of the three buildings will open the land. Just like SH opens land with a currency, only you have a monorail theme grind to it.....

    Anyway I don't think it wise to use free land tokens at all in this moment until the "badlands" are a bit more well defined. I see no relation between the event and the splash screen right now other then Halloween content from years past

    They already have characters that can only be obtained with real world cash. At least EA didn't do what Nintendo did, and just give you 10 levels and force you to pay real world cash to continue the game.
  • All of my land tokens are gone! This update took all my damn land tokens!
  • All of my land tokens are gone! This update took all my **** land tokens!

    YES! Where did my tokens go??? I've been willing to see how this new land strategy plays out but to take the tokens we've already worked hard for is criminal. Hoping this will soon be cleared up!
