GOO discrepancy??

I'm noticing the same thing. Posted in bugs about it: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9756066.page#30457262

I have noticed oddness with the 2000 Goo as well. For some reason not every Goo is counting and I earn enough Goo daily that it's getting to be really far off.

What I mean by this I currently have 24.360, but my bonus only shows 119/2000, so that means I'm off by 241 Goo at this point as rewards should happen at 24,000 and 26,000. It seems like it's slowly getting more and more off.

    That counter in the task list does work, when I hit the 2000 I got the donut game and it reset to 0 again. Looks like they just made a small change in the game.

    *CORRECTED*

    the Spooktacual bonus is not connected to the main goo count. It first starts when you unlock the gingerbread house at 10,000, Any goo earned between 10,000 and the gingerbread house is not counted. You start wit zero when the gingerbread house is unlocked. (I lost 66 as a gremlin feast came in)

    Same with the donut bonus display; any goo earned between reaching 2000 and the picking the donut bonus is not counted

    hope that helps

    I think you misread my post, I have over 24000 GOO and have been accumulating donuts since passing 10000 so it's pretty obvious I have the Gingerbread House. Apparently EA has changed the mechanism for counting GOO to the icon in the task list.

    That was my first thought as well, but it seems to be slipping further each time.

    Sorry I probably added some confusion then, I thought the 10,000 donuts had to be a typo. Why in the hell do you have 10,000 donuts? It's possible it's not coded to allow more than that cause that's a ludicrous amount, that's over $400 to buy that many.

    Ok, my fault for the confusion then. I was referring to passing the 10,000 GOO threshold.

    Yes it is the 10,000 goo; It is the donut bonus, so the 2000 goo is not connected to the main goo count but starts when the Gingerbread house is unlocked. any goo collected between the 10,000 and the gingerbread house being unlocked is not counted.

    When 2000 Goo in the Spooktacular Bonus is reached it does not reset until the Bonus Donuts are selected, anything goo between the 2000 and selecting the donut bonus is not counted. Selecting the Donut bonus starts the Bonus goo count again


    Hope I got it straight this time

    Only look in the Spooktacular bonus when it hit 2000, collect the donuts immediately. Any goo collected (like visiting neighbors) is not counted until the Spootacular Bonus resets to 0000

    It seems that it does not add the goo earned by using bombs
    Happened to me three times in arrow now
    When using bombs goo will be added to the total amount but not to the spectacular bonus
    So my discrepancy became wider and wider
