    Does it even matter? It seems like the community meter is fake anyway. I could be wrong, but to me it seems like its going up way too quickly and consistantly. Its like... 3 - 4k a second, every second?

    Seems unlikely.

    I counted a bunch of samples. It increments 3296 every second. The community goo counter is pre-programmed. No matter how many of us tap, it goes up at set rate.
    if it stays like that then it will reach 5 billion around 17.5 days from when it started. That's less than half the total event time.

    I do still think the increment will increase.

    Exactly what I thought. It's like that debt meter in New York that shows how much America owes the Chinese or whoever. It's made up and I'm willing to bet it will deliver all 5 prizes just before the end.

    Agreed, no matter what we will receive all the items.

    It's no longer going up in equal increments and is going up each second by numbers inbetween 4600 and 4800 by my reckoning.

    It's going to hit 1 billion within 6 hours. So 1 billion in 2 and a half days. If you allow for the fact the majority of people only started getting goo 24 hours ago, we will easily be covering 1 billion every 2 days moving forward.

    I still expect the first prize to be given out when we hit 5 billion which will be 10 or so days in, but we will see. We will pick up speed all the time as well. We may get to 5 billion quicker than 10 days.

    It's got to be all. What's the point of Halloween characters if you don't get them until November? You need time to earn them AND enjoy them before the 31st.

    Remember, just because SpAnser said it, doesn't necessarily mean it's true. He's been wrong on minor points before.

    I could be wrong. The code for the community prizes is on the server side. I don't see the community reaching much past the 5 billion mark so I am hoping it is 5 billion for all.

    No SpAnser is right, look at the wording in the msg it the community goal is 5 billion reach it to win prizes. Not a prize plural prizes.

    At the rate we are going at 500,000,000 a day. With 31 days this month, but the event started on the second, that is 30 days. So we assume for now for arguments sake we hold strong until the end of the month. Because during the middle of the month people will start to weave down because the have all the prizes, and near the end it will pick wayyy up because of people who are late to collect. It will even itself out. So to the math....

    30 x 500,000,000 = 15,000,000,000

    Looking at that if we hold true to roughly 500M a day we will reach the goal 3 times over at our current speed!

    So if it truly is 5 billion for all the prizes.....

    I say EA should think about giving us new prizes to give away due to our dedication to the game!

    This is a school lesson

    1,000 one thousand
    10,000 ten thousand
    100,000 one hundred thousand
    1,000,000 one million
    10,000,000 ten million
    100,000,000 one hundred million
    1,000,000,000 one billion.

    Lesson over!

    My mistake, it runs until the 7th of November. So the math....
    7 x 500,000,000 = 3,500,000,000

    So the new total is 15,000,000,000 + 3,500,000,000 = 18,500,000,000

    Edited because of math errors
