    No more time. Just make it easier for us to win this stuff. I can only use so many ponds, gates, fences, and my common color eggs.

    Please end the event, EA. I am still missing so many prizes. I am sure there are many others.

    But since you have not changed the odds for winning the good stuff, you could give us another four weeks and we wouldn't be one step closer to getting Shary and Father Sean.
    This event is an awful grind and we are sick of it.
    Show us the mercy and end it according to schedule.

    If they do extend it today would be the day they do it unless it's like whacking day in which case they'd extend it on the 14th

    PLEASE EXTEND THE EVENT!!! Even though it's a total rip off I still need more time with it. Also why would anyone want the event to end? Your just being greedy to players that are still trying and you can just ignore the event you know...

    Extend it! and increase the drop chance of the good items... by a lot. Not even close as it stands right now, and I have max neighbors I visit every single day.

    OK, bare with me for a moment. Lets pretend you've got all the prizes and to do so you've spent an absolute fortune on Donuts. Then EA decide that lol, jokes on you .. Here have a 1 in 2 chance of everything tasty, you'd be pretty sick wouldn't you. From reading other forums, even people with an unlimited supply of said Donuts spent upwards of 4000 donuts to get them, yes its probably easier now you can actually buy golden eggs but I'm no mathematician but that's gotta be close to £100 or $140 worth of donuts.

    I don't want the event extended and I still need Bart jr and Chirpy, Father Sean, and Shari Bobbins. I am so frustrated with all the grinding and all I get are fences in return. I don't mind grinding when you are working towards a set amount to win prizes, but I hate chance based prizes.

    I know. I have mixed feelings on the whole thing. On one hand, I really want Shary, Hugs, and the Egg Council Guy. On the other hand, I'm so tired of this event, tired of tapping bunnies, tired of checking my town every couple hours, tired of wasting donuts, tired of being tempted to waste more. It's a tough call. I get the feeling that I won't get the characters no matter what. I've spent a little over 200 donuts and I still haven't gotten anything good (except Bunny #24601). All my good prizes were won playing freemium. I get the feeling some of our accounts were rigged to never give us these prizes. This event is making me a little paranoid/tin-foil hatty. :shock:

    There are simple ways they could make it easier.

    1. Fix the basket glitch or make them more numerous. Part of the last minute frenzy of Whacking Day last year was the exchanging of eggs with others. I made a lot of friends during that time whom I visit every day and know I can count on during these big events. Right now, I probably have only 15 friends with baskets, and half of those are not the color I need. I have also only gotten 1 myself in the past 12 days. That is so simple.

    2. Of course, change the odds already! I splurged for the 1700 gold eggs last night. Got 3 boxes. The first one I got 250 pink eggs. Okay, fine. I need pink eggs. The second I got an Easter gate. Already had one, but okay. The third one I got...an Easter gate! Really? Many times on my uncommon color boxes the one major prize I still need doesn't even appear in the randomizer as a possibility for that box.

    3. Other than boxes of eggs, start eliminating prizes. Once you win an umbrella and beach towel, that prize is no longer available. Process of elimination. That could help EA because some will just spend donuts for eggs to get this event over.

    4. More bunnies to tap or zap. You get prizes from boxes. You get boxes from eggs. You get eggs from bunnies. More bunnies makes sense.

    People have lost interest. Every day fewer of my friends are still playing, most just giving up.

    But then every time I saw Johnny Fiestas or Shary Bobbins in a neighbor's town, I would be reminded, and sad, and upset.

    When this event first started, I was completely optimistic. I bought the MKII, just to make sure I got enough uncommon eggs. Now if I do find the f egg I will be hiding it, because that item was part of my downfall. Even if I do get the lizards and Kang topiary, I still can't imagine getting Sean and Shari. I would rather seen this event ended on time and be jealous, than have an extra week before being jealous anyway. This will be my first unfinished event, and oddly enough, the least amount of donuts spent during one. I will not spend donuts for chance items.

    The season finale for the Simpsons airs next Sunday. Last year, the Yard Sale started a few days before the season finale. It doesn't necessarily have to this year because it's not really a quest leading up to the finale like other episode tie-ins, but it's probably a marketing strategy to promote both the show and the sale of premium items.
    Lisa: "I know! What if we sold a bunch of cool premium items from this season's episodes?"
    Homer: "Pfft. What kind of idiot would want to buy that junk?"

    I would like it extended - however, I do have a question...

    What is this yardsale you speak of? What is generally sold during a yard sale? I've never seen one in-game and I started last year during whacking day :-)

    The Yard Sale occurred in May of last year to promote the Season 24 finale and rake in some cash by selling a bunch of premium decorations like the Smithers statue, Frink's rocket car, Duff Party bus, Duff Barney blimp and a few other items. There were a couple of free items: Laramie cigarette machine and Devil Donut cart.

    Extending won't help if the odds are too hard and if the boxes are still too expensive.
