yay we can all complain about a holiday wheel again!

Clearly you haven't been browsing the forums much because this is not by any means the first complaint thread..

    That's okay, we need new "Wheel Complaint Threads" every so often to make sure there's at least one on the front page.

    So far I've had 3 fountains and 2 ponds. This wheel sucks.*

    * Watch me blitz the other 6 prizes in 6 spins now. Then I'll come back with the "Ha! Ha!" posts.

    The reason the wheel has nothing good is because everyone complained so loudly last time. If you want the wheel to be easy to complete with everything having even odds, then this is what the wheel will have. There are a lot less wheel complaint threads so I'm assuming users prefer this arrangement over the last.

    Of course, I do kind of feel this Valentine's event lacks content. Last year, there were Sir Putt's A Lot, Howard's Flowers, AND Phineas Q. Butterfat's (in addition to a bunch of decorations we could buy). This year, all we have is Madame Chao's, the Tunnel of Love, and a bunch of recycled content.

    maybe if we all complain enough, for the next event, EA will bring back the wheel with nothing but large hedges and brown fences... the same crap i get in every mystery box for the last two years (yessss another complaint within a complaint).

    seriously we need to step-up our wheel complaint threads. i went a few pages back and didn't find one. We need at least one wheel complaint thread per roughly 10 pages.

    and did i mention this wheel sucks?

    Yes, more wheel complaint threads are desperately needed:

    I don't mind it. This is one of the first times I can remember that they've given you a chance to get multiple bonus % items without spending donuts. I've already scored two of the trains.

    Also get to get content that I missed last year. I was really disappointed because I played through most of the update last year but was too new to the game to know what I had to do for the event.

    I actually nearly 100% disagree. The Plow King skin was lazily done with mostly indoor tasks and rehashed his normal tasks. He doesn't even use the plow we had to win.

    Homer - had him from last year.

    As for the Clausco & Helter Shelter - caused a great deal of stress for people wanting them. While buildings are nice, that also takes away available space. Something I'm content that the Vday update wasn't overpowering with buildings.

    As for the Snow Monster - just a walking decoration. Nothing major special.

    Then you could win pointless money. Wow $1000 is going to really add something when I have 10 million.

    Yes the snowmen added bonus, but seems that the train and pond are worth more - also on the wheel but in infinite amounts. So in return your bonus will go a lot higher since you can win more of them.

    As for the Valentine's wheel - it's stress free, plus can get cool decorations. I'd love to be able to stock most of them as they can really add to some designs. They aren't required to just be in a theme area (at least to me).

    You know what is good about this sucky wheel? It actually sucks so bad that i don't care. The Christmas wheel had great prizes that i actually wanted. so when you spin and didn't get them it was a big letdown. this wheel, EVERYTHING sucks. So it isn't disappointing at all when you spin it!

    i agree the Barney skin is one of the most lame... but I was speaking on the donut value of the skins. Any characterr skin seems to go for 100+ donuts. Mr. Plow is one of the best skins in the game, though. so for the players who didn't have him, he was a major prize.

    Plow King is my second least favorite skin after Respectable Moe whose only outdoor task is to strut the suit... why bother? He really is lame.

    This wheel is ESPECIALLY sucky because whereas the last wheel gave out some seriously awesome prizes, the big bang for this one is a ride in Krustyland... which nobody really cares about.

    I love KL! I hope they sell fried turkey legs! That would give closure to the Thanksgiving event.

    Ehhh... all out events are seasonal; but, the stuff on the Valentine's wheel are closer to what we can use for non-Valentine's than the decorations that we got for Halloween or Christmas.

    I actually think most of the wheel decorations look exceptionally good (aside from the color) all except the pond and the train. The biggest problem for me I think is that I don't really have room for a gazillion gazebos.

    They do look good I just can't stand the color, to me it just doesn't look right in my town. As for seasonal updates I would like EA to skip Valentines day next year and do President's Day the decorations and characters would be so much cooler.
