  • It's part of the event. Nothing to worry about. :)
  • Thanks Ellie. :)
  • Hi guys. I am new to the forum and don't know if this post is in right place. I added my name to add friends and have had a number of people add me. Thanks everyone who has added me.
    However received notification on phone saying that certain user hacked my springfield...(I did not see end sorry). Is there something in gameplay that you can notionally hack someone the same as spray painting building etc. Or should I be concerned about it? Thanks

    I believe this is just a neighbor visit notification. The current event will state that you were "hacked" by neighbors that visit and tap buildings in your town.

  • Ea.. I have a huge issue i play daily, multiple times a day and do every activity i can when i log on. Usually on events like this i have no issues gettinf all the prizes.. This time around i was 10 000 points shy of recieving the final act one prize. This is a little out of hand and something needs to be done about it..

    This is a users’ forum, @T_Wicx93, so unfortunately there’s really no one here from EA to hear your complaints. If it makes any difference to you, other users have also commented that the first act of this event seemed unusually difficult to complete on schedule.

  • Where can i post where they will see it

    Not really sure. You might post on Answers HQ at the EA Help site, but that’s also pretty much a community-based forum. Frankly, posting might make you feel better, but if you’re trying to impact the behavior of the game developers, you’re probably wasting your time.

    hello and welcome to the forum.

    as indicated, there's no EA people here, just players like you. I'll try to offer a little support and some hard reality unfortunately.

    i've been here years, and have been frustrated myself plenty of times for feeling like they really make it impossible to earn all the prizes for free. i am a totally free player, mostly because i just can't afford it in my budget, but partially because over time i've really developed a poor attitude that i'll never give them money ever. but that's just frustration speaking.

    the game is obviously designed to earn the company money. it's not just for us to have fun for free. so they definitely make some events in the game more challenging, to persuade us to buy the premium characters and buildings that help us complete the event.

    not every event is so challenging. in fact that last few have been pretty generous. THIS event has been tough, and i barely made it myself, but i do have a few premium characters helping that i earned over 4 years.

    If you are serious about obtaining as much as you can for free, you can use the event guides we create for ourselves, to determine who to keep free, how often to log in, what to tap when, etc. i've set alarms for myself to check in exactly at 4 hours if that's the interval needed, which it usually is. if you can log in 6x a day using alarms, which sounds insane, you can make a lot more progress than average.

    and this is only necessary while you're new. eventually you'll get some of the premium characters. i earned Duffman, Frink, and plenty others, but it took years.

    one thing you can do, if you don't mind spending a little $, is to buy a game play card and get some extra donuts. there's tips all over on how to best spend your donuts. but if you can't, like me, you must accept that you'll do the best you can with what you have, and that's all you get.

    which is still a lot. i've played this game DAILY, for years, for free. that's more entertainment than i've ever got out of a console game, or any other mobile game. so we're not getting ripped off, we just have to be realistic about our expectations of a "freemium" game. which, if you've ever seen the South Park episode about them, you know are simply easy money makers for companies like EA.

    Good luck trying to find a comfortable playing routine. my last tip is simply, don't get bent about not getting everything. because once you're here four years too, you can't even fit it all in. i'm at the max item count now, and it's just stressful. i'm certain they never expected people to be so addicted to a game.

    i hope this wasn't too wordy, and i never meant to sound condescending. i've wanted to quit this game for it's perceived greediness, but i'm glad i haven't. i also haven't spent more than $10. many here have spent hundreds or more.

    happy tapping!

  • Good evening EA Forum,

    Is anyone else a little annoyed that the Easter Flag does not have the chain placement feature?
    It is sort of a pain that after buying one, you have to go back into the store, get another flag, place it, and repeat the process until satisfied with the amount of flags you want. This also happened with the 7200 Ounce Squishee and is currently going on when purchasing the Woodchipper. I just thought I would mention it here in case anyone had some information on this. :smile:

    Thank you.
  • Was Drederick Tatum removed from the game? I don't see him anywhere to buy.

    He was available to buy earlier in the event with a rebate. He should also be included in the 'last chance to buy' when several items return to the store:

  • Sorry if this has been mentioned recently...
    With this latest update and event, every single time I want to play, (multiple times a day), I have to log in and download the whole update again... it's driving me nuts! I've missed most of the event because it's too frustrating to keep downloading. Is it something with this update or my device? (I have deleted the app, powered off my device and re-downloaded the whole app a couple of times, doesn't help.) TIA

    I'm on level 19. Ever since I reached level 14 (15?), I have not been able to see or complete dossiers. When I pull up the screen, it is blank except for a red and blue background. The rest of the spy menu and tasks work fine.
  • Ok just want to know all my freind requests have cleared. Is this supposed to happen after a few days?

    Anyone else noticing a problem on clicking neighbors on the app shutting off?
  • Prehistoric quest line got partially reset and no longer advancing.... I had started "It’s About Time Pt. 6" and was also running shovel jobs, but upon completion this morning, I can no longer do shovel quests and do not have access to the additional question activities beyond regular earning of fossils.
  • I'm currently stuck. I have zero shovels. When I try to create shovels, the game says "Requirement not met" and says I need to dig up a gem. When I try to dig up a gem, it tells me I need to buy shovels to dig. It's a catch 22 unless I spend all my donuts.

    Typically in the past I was able to participate in the events without using up my donuts. Is this a new requirement?

    I do experience the same problem! Got a partial reset and even with buying showels and finding gems, the game doesn't advance. And this morning I was much farther into the game than I am right now! Basically stuck in the game right now!
  • I am getting donuts and messages that purchase at store was successful but I haven't made any purchases.
