diminishing returns?

Personally it is a mix of the 2nd and 3rd options on the poll for me, but since I could only pick one, I went with "grabbing every last one of em", as that kind of ensures that I would be visiting my neighbors to get those extras anyways.

Since I don't spend donuts, freebies (other than the time I invest) is about the only way I know of offhand that would get me any kind of bonus multiplier items, so I'm going to give it my best to try to win as many of those kinds of items that I can, when given the opportunity.

    As a person that was getting few visits because of being at the end of the list, I changed my name. So, yes! I visit Every friend to not be a jerk and screw some of them out of valentines rewards. It's sad EA has decided to punish our friends by making some players not wish to come visit for such a little reward!

    I decided to view it as helping them still instead of focusing on how little I was getting.

    Visits origin site, sign in- there's a pretty obvious link for changing your name on the main page.

    Helped me a ton on visits- like I said I know the pain so I'm being diligent on my own visiting! :mrgreen:



    Challenge- visit all your friends because your amazing and want to help them as much as you help yourself! I know it takes time and can't be done everyday but a few times a week to see ALL your friends? C'mon peeps be amazing!

    i've been managing to hit up all 90+ of my neighbors each day. i got rid of a few of the non-playing neighbors and haven't re-added the few active ones to take their place yet. It only takes literally 5 seconds to visit some neighbors, so it's pretty quick to go through the list. Just tap tap tap and hit the arrow...no need to wait for it to collect.
    I still have 2 items to get on the wheel, and I really don't wanna miss those...i needed 3 as of last night, but i got one of the items i was missing (the pink fountain) on my first spin this morning. Just need the gazebo and the balloons now.

    I have been trying to hit every neighbor on my list, but keep getting the "Reconnecting" screen. That gets kind of annoying after a while. Therefore, I have been trying to alternate going from A-Z with Z-A. I still want to hit everybody since that is more helpful, but it isn't always happening.

    Here's how I simplify heart-gathering and neighbor-visiting ... I visit one third of my neighbors in the morning, another third around mid day, and the final third in the evening.

    That way I don't get burned out trying to visit all 100 neighbors in one sitting. Also this ensures I clear out all completed buildings & actions & valentines in my Springfield multiple times a day so that visiting neighbors will have plenty of characters free to tap.

    Trouble with hitting the "Reconnecting" screen is when you re-enter the game and your back at the beginning of your neighbour list regardless of how far you were before. It needs to be changed so you can pick up where you left off like when you voluntarily leave the game and then go back to it sometime later... :x
