Suggestion

Got more than 70,000 cards, but still not cleared it (ClausCo). Would love to use these cards to buy what is missing that was given last year for ingame coins and pay with donuts those priced so at the time.


Looks like my feeder town won't even be able to get all the Xms lights! Ms Krabapple apartments are proving to be elusive, as well as HelterShelter (nearly 40,000 cards there and counting)

    Yeah, it makes no sense that I could farm over double the amount of gift cards needed to earn all the personal prizes- and not have cleared the board. I have Claus co., helter shelter, and the yeti left- it's been 21 spins and I've only received money. With all the gift cards I've been farming it would be nice to use them for something.

    I agree wholeheartedly the wheel Is a joke and a ripoff. You made 105 million in profit how about throwing us a bone.

    Has EA acknowledged the bugs yet? I know they like to avoid sitations like this.

    I'm at 89,000 coins with only Claus co to go. I got everything else by 52,000 coins. This has definitely been very frustrating. However I refuse to spend a single doughnut to get more coins. I win it for free or I don't get it.

    Personally I could really care less. Yes I am still collecting cards in an attempt to clear the wheel and probably spend way too much time doing it but to date I am still playing for free and having fun. I suppose if you're plunking down real donuts it might be different but I won't give it much of a thought once the event is complete. :?

    EA, you have been screwing up and over concerning the wheel and spin tokens from getting 1k extra gift cards. It would be nice, if you allowed us to purchase the missing things on the wheel with the gift cards you've earned and spend them on everything else. Seriously, you need to do something.

    Amen brother, a friggen men.

    Iam tired of ea doing this to me.

    Does anybody else find it odd that so many people have such a sense of entitlement with this game, despite many of them never having to pay a cent.

    It never once occurred to me during these events that I SHOULD win all the available prizes. However, I was delighted that I COULD have the chance to, and hoped very much that I WOULD gain them all.

    But it appears here and on many forums there are players who are distraught at the thought this could end without them attaining all the freebies up for grabs. Apparently our essential human rights as players to get every item gifted to us for nothing is being denied by EA.

    I find it odd that people put such emphasis on "fairness" in this case,
    ie; it's not fair that {insert name here} got all that with just 40000 cards while I (sic) am up to 97000 and still have to get...
    or; How can it be possible that they could let me (sic) finish this event without awarding me with everything available, it wouldn't be fair.

    These are the kind of complaints I am seeing regularly here at the moment, but I do not see why this is an issue, as the game has always involved elements of chance which may or may not favour you.
    The Mystery Boxes are the obvious example of this, completely random, with chances of getting some pretty solid prizes, but also full of duds.
    In close to a year of playing I have never once won donuts in a mystery box, but nearly everybody else I know that plays has won 10 or more, even though I have played the longest and almost definitely more regularly than any of them. Even my girlfriend won some in hers last week, she's only been at it for a few months.
    Is this Fair? Should Fairness even be considered in these instances? Or is it just the way she goes?

    When I first saw the wheel I assumed that it would be weighted in a similar way to the mystery boxes, as it seems to be way this game tends to operate (they want to encourage spending money remember, if they guaranteed that everything could be won by the end of an event, that also guarantees there will be fewer donuts spent on the event). So my reasoning was that I may be lucky and get all the prizes, or unfortunate and miss out on some. But never was there an expectation that I would without doubt finish the event with all the prizes, and I am surprised by how many clearly expected this.

    Clearly we in the West live in an age of gross entitlement, so many of us believe we are owed some dues.

    Well said although I'm still cross I've hit the glitch. Just accepted I'm unlikely to win the last two prizes and I really wanted the yeti :(
    I love my computer...all my friends live in it

    Not exactly, I know it's possible to end up with an incomplete set, iam fully aware of that, but atleast give us a fair go, the inconsistancy is a joke. I know when I spin and it jumps slightly,that means I was going to win a prize and lands me on money or cards. But when I spin and it doesn't jump and I land on cards or cash that I means I guess I spun that up realistically. It jumps as I think it's like the auto correct kicking in to the default set odds and controls the spin to either cards or cash.

    To RoystonVasee,

    I completely agree with you. This age of Obama is literally the age of Envy and Entitlement. While I haven't cleared the wheel, I try to keep in mind it's free despite the frustration.

    Nothing to do with Obama, was happening long before he had any influence in this world. In fact I find it odd that you even considered him relative to my comment at all.


    emmcee1, you have every right to be disappointed and peeved as the game suggested you had won a sweet prize only to deny you; it's a digital Indian giver.*
    Send EA that pic and have a whinge I reckon, they may actually lift a finger or two and do something about it if you are lucky.



    *This is in now way intended to refer to race or culture, I'm still waiting for the intelligentsia to come up with a PC word to replace the term.

    Please, Obama is just a puppet told what to do by people behind the scenes known as NWO or Illuminati. He does what he is told.

    Replace the word "Obama" with "every US President for the last 50 years" and the words "NWO or Illuminati" with "Corporate Lobby Groups and Fundamentalist Evangelicals" then you are bang on.

    At least Billy C's time was amusing I suppose.
