    Just saw a video on youtube about tsto Christmas 2013, and even though the guy can't read, it made me miss that Christmas event sooo much. All the colorful gifts bouncing around and the little boing sound they made.

    I forgot about dropping presents into other towns oceans or behind a building. :D Good times indeed. Didn't they use that mechanic 2 different years?
    😂 the presents behind buildings is funny NOW!

    some of my neighbors and I used to PM each other let them know how many presents we dropped and where they fell.

  • The event is okay right now. Should get better as I continue into the stories and unlock more prizes. But, I can’t believe I’m saying this, I kinda miss the prize crafting. Please neighborinos, forgive me. :s:p

  • So, quit your bellyaching melon-heads.

    It would appear you misjudged how many (what was it you called people who didn’t think the same as you?) bellyaching melon-heads there are playing the game that miss crafting.
  • I'm not sure why the upset. This event follows all other event sequences exactly:

    Event released. People complain they cant download it and its too big
    Event starts. Multiple threads start. Why I hate the update, this is the end of the game, more why I hate it
    People post in I hate it threads that they like it.
    People post that the people who like/hate the event are stupid
    People post they are leaving the game
    People post goodbye
    Event continues, everyone plays
    People post why it was best/worst event ever
    Event ends
    People post they are bored and when is the next event.
    What is UTC DST EST GMT MOUSE

    Repeat all

    Merry Christmas everyone. Do a random act of kindness for a stranger. Hug and thank your parents/kids. Repeat.

    OP of that post was directed to people who are tired of the 3 act system. Couldn't read anything about crafting in their post so I don't know why you are quote sniping and responding to something non-existent.

    Full post for context:
    Maybe I've been reading a different forum, but haven't we had multiple "tired of the three act grind" threads for each major event for at least the last year? EA gave you something different. So, quit your bellyaching melon-heads.
  • It is a simplified event. This time of year , we have more important things to do than tap screens,
    As an added bonus, EA should create fewer glitches this month (well at least no major ones, we hope)

    Merry Christmas* to all and to all a good night

    You see what you did there, right?
    You’ve described a community filled with individuals.

    Different points of view, tastes, ways of thinking, and everyone (mostly) content with the variety.

  • I have to apologize. After some googling, I realized I mis-quoted Grampa Simpson. It should read "Ah, quit your bellyaching, you big loser." My mistake. I apologize for calling all you big losers melon-heads. It will not happen again.

  • I like this event. Great to hear that there are land tokens too. I just don't like that there isn't music

    I personally was not happy about a major event being 4 mini events.......

    But......

    -The prizes look cool.
    -The lack of crafting seems to equate to you being able to purchase items after you earn them in the prize pool. This is nice since you can get a virtual unlimited number of them instead of choosing which decorations you want multiples of due to crafting limitations. I only assume this since the first deco, "Hot Roasted Chestnut Cart" is purchasable now after earning it.
    -Will be easier to log in every 4 hours for a quick tap while at work.
    -Possibly 12 Land Tokens if 3 per mini event continues.

    It does lack neighbor interaction now that there is no benefit to visiting neighbors.......

    Not everyone complained about it. And I'm guessing the people that are less than thrilled with this so far (like me) weren't part of that crowd. Kind of presumptuous of you to imply that.

    Here's the thing, while you were not complaining about the 3 act grind, you ARE complaining. Correct? So, QUIT YOUR BELLYACHING, YOU BIG LOSER!~Grampa Simpson

    Are gifs still a thing? If anyone can find a gif of that quote, I will be your best friend. I have been wanting to reply to all the complaint threads with my bellyaching quote for years and today, I'm just **** enough to do it.

    ETA~I'm going to be the person that complains about the complainers!!!! Don't think the irony is lost on me!
  • This is a massive over-reaction. EA don't owe us anything, so we should be lucky they're still supporting the game and it remains ad-free.

    Plus one of the first prizes comes with a land token.
