What do you miss?

so now this game has become a drudge what do you miss most about the old formats? Maybe EA will read this and get some inspiration for future events.
What I miss most is the interaction with neighbours and the camarade here as we tried to work out how to play each update.

    I miss tappables in my game and the ability to drop a version of them into neighbours towns.

    I do not miss crafting at all. :|

  • I miss crafting, if only to get multiples of decorations. :)

    I didn't mind craftables when you could buy extra instead of having to craft multiples that you didn't want!

    I miss good, classic Simpson's content.
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.
  • Wish they would continue the Friendship Points, or the Achievables (higher money ones), or even events where it wasn't the same 4 hour grind over and over. I miss spinning the wheel...

    No, not the Wheel! The wheel meant that some players got the prizes quickly, most got them eventually, and some barely got anything from it (seemed like the old bell curve distribution). I have always had 5 games, so experienced this every time an event had it. On one or two of my games I would not get all the wheel-prize content no matter how often I played or threw hard-earned donuts. That’s not reasonable

    I would like to have strangers walking around in town you have to tap to achieve points, such as gangsters or aliens. That was really fun.

    I miss the following things and I wish these come back as permanent additions.

    1. Friendship Prizes
    2. Road to Riches
    3. Previous format to the Major Events
    4. Episode Tie-ins

    +1 This would be my list too, and in that order
  • I miss the spy/criminals in the all black outfits that seemed to tip toe around town and then the sneaky guys came back with wigs. So adorable. I miss zombie Elvis es and dozens of Easter colored bunnies, and super speedy grem-aliens.

    I liked Moe's Ark. I only used donuts to finish crafting one of the craftables.

    Additional craftables were used here:

    As you can see I got a lot of stuff from crafting, but I still did not get all that I wanted.
    Crafting made you think about what you wanted most. You did not always get everything you wanted. I believe that was an important part of the game. You had to use strategy. An interesting concept for a game. These last comments are not aimed at KLmaker, I did not read that KLmaker wanted things handed to him/her, they are just why I like crafting.

    In 10 days it will be 5 years of tapped out for me. I haven't stuck with any of my wives that long. :)

  • Nice designs...I especially like the second one with the treehouse
  • This might sound strange, but I missed having no Pride Mini event last year. One of my faves, and saved up a bunch of donuts for it, but it never happened. I'd really enjoy a full Pride Event, not just a mini event.

    You are right, @Razor049, "I didn't want stuff for free, I just wanted a fair shot at getting it". You are very astute and cautious in your post, a lesson to a lot of us.

    Not only was it pricey, I'm referring to Great Plains and Warmongers of course, but they dropped the event currency in the Daily Challenge, where we previously received 4,000 items it went down to 400 Grants!!!!
    It was like, it went off a cliff and into an underwater canyon for good measure, cos, you know, it still wasn't low enough.
    That was an EA NASTY.

    I spent all 200 donuts on Grants + a few more donuts on the smaller bundles, I worked out on the back of an envelope, A4 not A3, what I wanted, (A lot), and how much it would cost, (A lot), and what I could get, (Not a lot).
    I had to put a lot into it, even getting up in the middle of the night to go to the lav and refreshing tasks, I drank copious amounts of tea during the day, it had to be done.

    I like what you did with your town, I had the same idea.
    Pandas sharing with apes, white tigers with lions, sounds like the Monty Python sketch in Africa.

    I would have had 100 more donuts to spend on Grants, if it were not for the I&SL lag.
    Somehow, and I still don't know how, while trying to scroll over the Furniture Store in SFH, I went into Premium and ended up buying Sherri & Terri, which I did not want.

    THOH XXIX utilised the back of another envelope as well, I think I got every type of item I wanted, though I did want more of them.
    I think I drank a lot of tea on that one as well?

    What I didn't like about crafting was having to buy something I didn't want just to progress.

    those things are exactly what I miss too
  • I miss when it was fun, careful of saying that on here though as some think the game is beyond criticism.

    Me too. Things like the monorail gave us hours and hours of stuff to do after the event also. This stuff is grind, place, next. Maybe that's why it's boring to so many?

    I working on the "event" in my smallest town while balancing tasks at level 42, SH, monorail, and KL. It is indeed a challenge. since you need the same characters for most of it. Did I mention this town has 6 donuts? I can't even turn the XP collider on yet. I think my mistake is I'm not KM farming, I think that's how we did it crawl.

  • craftable items! But not the levels that came with it. I just wish we could craft whatever we wanted throughout the event. I also miss Springfield Heights/Road to Riches. I've had to alter my town design because I gave up on SFH. I was hoping the land would open up and I could continue decorating there, but I feel like that's never going to happen now.
