    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

    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

    Edit: didn't see Snakeeyes post til after mine posted

    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!

    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


    The 12 hour would have to be outside , I would think and I would imagine it looks awesome!! Can't wait to find out on that. 24 hour, I'm guessing that's probably indoor. I just don't see how that would visually work as an outdoor task.

    So excited!!!

    It looks like it might be able to be sped up by donuts. Not sure how much though but it appears it could cost more than it is worth to just do friend actions.

    Also we are getting 6 new levels and people complaining about not getting any new levels....

    I hope it's not like valentines where there is a limit on how many we get a day and can only do it if there is enough. Btw does anyone think that when visiting the characters will be on outdoor tasks if they are indoors likely

    I don't know exactly what is meant by the part of the purely speculation page that says "friend points are cleared each level" but I assume it merely means that we do not accrue points (shoot I don't know how to word this ... )

    As an example, we would get 1,000 points, get the first prize, move to the next level,, reset to zero, get ANOTHER 2,000 points, get the second prize, lather, rinse, repeat.

    I don't get the sense from that purely speculative source that we'd be limited per day, except the built-in limitation from the maximum of 100 friends.

    I am TOTALLY loving this concept! Like, fer shure. *\o/*

    SpAnser, is a friend level different from a game level? That was my first interpretation of this ...

    I'm with you on this one, it is very exciting news for the game, and what does appear to be a major update from EA. We can only wait and see - excited about the possibility of six new levels too :D

    I'm enjoying these extra days of vday event.... Normally events do get extended a week... More days equal more vday roses!

    Most likely anything that comes between today n saint pattys day would be either lvl 39 or the saint pattys event.

    I assumed the same and if my math is right it'd take 36 days to get the first 5 with 100 friends

    Thanks Spanser! I wonder if we'll get the stackables again or maybe we just get the friends points prizes instead.

    So it appears from that totally speculative source (ahem) that the grand total points to get the final price is 11,000 friend points. Based on the formula they give, assuming someone has 100 friends, what is the leastnumber of days it would take to get to the finish?

    NINJA'D by Drosax! Thank you for doing the math!!!

    What's the difference between the two?
