    I got a system message this morning saying "The next game update will be in approximately 8 hours." That was like 6 hours ago.
    Your that guy that made that troll thread weren't you?

    We will see then because in around 1 hours time is when we should get the update if the message i got was correct.

    Can we all agree that the Valentines Update was romantic?

    I will agree with you. Plus I've got a 14.5% increase in my multiplier so I can't complain.

    The news on the other website is exciting!! I really like this idea, it gives us a reason to visit each other outside of a major event. So many people have said they don't visit regularly because they don't need the money. So this is a great development on EA's part, can't wait for it!

    What i've read externally upon reading the posts here is quite interesting... one does have to ask the question, is this a replacement for Saint Patricks Day updates perhaps? Or is this a nice touch (if it does happen) by EA to get more people to interact and make visiting friends towns more beneficial?

    I sit and wait eagerly for whatever is coming from EA for the game :)

    i think this is a permanent addition to make the social aspect of the game better

    No level update is a bit pathetic though.

    Over a month since lvl 38.

    Agreed and doesn't look like an event either so we can get everything at our own pace. I'm wondering if both are outdoors or just the 12 hour one can't wait to see the animations though

    I hope so too, which leads me to wonder if EA are going to roll out different prizes every month? I can't see people keeping any interest in visiting friends after they have everything (much like events), so i think it would be quite a huge move for EA, and one i really like :D

    We will see it when it comes but i think it might take some time to collect these prizes and because it is tied into friend visits people will not be able to speed up the process with donuts

    >>>BTW Can it be a new forum rule to not start a thread with the single word "Update" :mrgreen: Unless it is an update 8) <<<


    Your use of the qualifier "new" confuses me. Are you saying we have rules? Why haven't I been told? ;)

    There is a line in the 'speculation' on the 'other site' that says "More prizes coming soon!"

    A very good point there, i'm guessing it'll probably be 3 coins (if they use that method) per visit every 24hrs, for someone who has 100 friends, that's something like

    * 300 coins, say, the first prize being 1200 coins, should take them 4 days to get it. Coin counter resets to zero, collect again, next prize, say 2400, takes 8 days (based on maximum friends), and so on until all the prizes are collected.

    This would make the visiting friends become more regular, make the social aspect of the game more interesting. After a while, EA can roll out new prizes and make the older ones premium currency, allowing EA to make some cash to keep the game ticking over.

    I might be a million miles off what is actually going to happen, but i like to at least try to make guesses at things like this :)

    SpAnser put up some new info this is a permanent update being added to the game, and it has diminishing returns just like V-day did. its going to take awhile to get all the prizes which is good. you can see how many points per day you can get based on your actions.


    Collecting Friend Points appears to be identical to collecting hearts.
    Between 0-30 actions you get 10 Friend Points
    Between 30-60 actions you get 5 Friend Points
    Between 60-90 actions you get 4 Friend Points
    Between 60-120 actions you get 2 Friend Points
    Between 120-300 actions you get 1 Friend Points

    Friendship Level 6

    Friend Actions earn $90
    Krustyland Actions Earn 5 instead of 3 ?
    You’ve reached the maximum number of Friend Points. More prizes coming soon!
    In the meantime, you’ll earn TRIPLE the money from your Friend Interactions. Cha-ching!
