    Garbage,
    so much work for fences, got to 49 out of the 50 then the update caused me to lose my 400 gold, 488 blue and 475 pink eggs. Why not round them up for us?

    Received too much trees and crap from all the eggs.

    F is for the Fabrege Egg, which I never found.
    F is for Fences, which in my inventory abound.
    F is for Friends, with no baskets anywhere.
    F is for Frustration, a feeling we all share.
    F is for Freemium, for no more donuts shall I pay.
    F is for Famliy Guy, a new game I now play.
    F is for the Future, in which I hope the devs will relent.
    F is the Final Grade, I must give this F'ed event.

    +1,000,000 +++++++++

    We should start a petition with Apple to take this game from the "family" section and put it with the gambling apps.
    Where it belongs!!!

    Slot machines, by any other name are slot machines - EA can call them boxes or wheels, they are slot machines and rigged at that!!!!

    I'd give it a B-. I spent about 125 donuts, got a lot of entertainment value tapping like crazy, and got everything except Shary and Kang topiary. There was a lot I didnt like, and the fact it made people so angry clearly shows it wasnt a success. With that said, 3 buildings, 2 playable characters 4 multipliers (kodos topiaries) and a bunch of decorations for 125 donuts is a huge overall win.

    I gave it a solid "C". Average.

    Above average prizes, quest line was good, and decorative changes were all top-notch.

    Where this event failed was the way you got your prizes. The randomness of the boxes were just cruel (though after spending all my eggs in my feeder towns and getting the exact same prizes in the exact same order... I don't think it was random at all). I hate all these chance based events. Let us gather eggs and then spend said eggs to get the prizes. If you don't get all the prizes, then you didn't grind hard enough, not that you were just unlucky.

    The most rage-inducing moment: Amassing 500 pink eggs to spin and get 100 gold eggs, spending 500 blue eggs to spin and get 300 gold eggs, spend another 500 pink to get 100 gold, spin a gold box... and wait for it... 250 pink eggs. Or doing the same and netting 2 pastel fences without ANY bonus... :evil:

    I played almost every single day, visited all my 100 friends daily, and still didn't get 50 fences, Sharry Bobbins, Egg Council Guy, Hugs Bunny, Johnny Fiestas, and one of the topiaries.

    I'm glad its over.

    I give it a C. Zapping bunnies was fun, collecting eggs was fun. The idea of ppl having different common egg colors was a good start to making the game more social. The quest was interesting and entertaining.
    However, the prize awarding system was absolutely terrible! Not being able to pick out the decorations you want and pass on the ones you don't was completely frustrating. The fact that there was no assurance that the effort involved in collecting eggs would result in something worthwhile made egg collecting utterly pointless. I finally gave up toward the end of the event (and so did many of my neighbors).

    Horrible event.

    Don't see how you can give it any higher than a D+

    In my opinion most of the available prizes were great (Father Sean, Bobbins etc), it's just that the way of obtaining the prizes was garbage. :cry: However, Easter did have its fair share of bad prizes (fences, ponds and what have you).

    my vote is F... an big F... not enough time to get all the prices... to many times it hit the gold and never got enough to get prices there... next time when we got a price delete it from the gift thingy... this was a "too much gifts and not enought time" event... and fix the game crashing...

    I agree the prizes were great but it was damn near impossible to win them all (unless you spent some serious money. And even then it was pretty tough)

    LOL at the 'A' votes.

    We're wise to your ruse, EA.

    I actually got tons of baskets, literally had a back-up in my inventory and never ran out. I don't know why.

    And freemium for this event, I got Father Sean, Johnny Fiestas and the Blocko store, which were the only prizes I liked.

    Still I give the event a big fat F because its a slap in the face to ask people to buy CHANCES at winning, and even moreso that they weren't up front about the rigged prerequisites you needed before even having a chance at characters. Isn't that fraud?

    Personal petty reason: I hate Lisa and I'm so over every event revolving around her playing detective. I understand logistically she is one of two game starting characters with which everyone is guaranteed to be able to play, but I hate her. She's a snotty little hypocrite and she punched Ralph to fit in with the bullies. Nevar 4get.

    One additional Easter trick by EA that's often overlooked is how people got hosed by the Faberge egg "surprise." If I had known my baskets would dry up for nearly 10 days by completing the Easter quest line, I would have simply waited to complete the final task until the last day of the event. If I'd done it that way, I would have had baskets raining down throughout the event and I might have been able to win Johnny Fiesta's.

    I spent three weeks just trying to get Fiesta's, at least one blue spin per day (often two or three), and couldn't win it. What kind of sad joke is that? Is that somebody's idea of fun?

    WORST F#@% EVER EVENT......... so far.....

    Would love to read Josh's remarks on this. Pity he's gone.

    A Josh post is the only thing that would have been entertaining about this event.

    A vote of C for me.

    I loved the way they decorated the towns, the details of the birds and bees, the sounds of spring were lovely. I enjoyed completing the questline and setting everyone on their egg tasks. Tapping and zapping bunnies was quite fun and I enjoyed the way they ran out of the farm when you harvested carrots.

    The prizes offered were great, I love the buildings. The fences also make for a great alternative to what we have to make things a little different in our towns and the ponds are really quite tranquil looking.

    What I didn't like was certain prizes being in certain boxes, not everyone wants an inventory full of decorative items or to swap all of their common eggs to get 500 uncommon to get 250 common back. Basket drops should of been a bit more frequent and shouldn't of been stopped when looking for the fab egg. Egg amounts should of been consistent in all friend visits and not declining amounts. Glitches like the broken baskets and broken bunny zappers should of been fixed as it put people at a disadvantage.

    Hee, I'm one of the 6 or so people who gave it an A. I enjoyed the Easter Update. Zapping the bunnies was fun, the prizes were great. It is the first time that I've had to use donuts for an event, but I knew I would need to if I had any chance at getting anything decent as I don't get the Faberge egg for 2 weeks and 1 day after I finished the quest lines. I bought a boatload and still have 1600 left, so not bad in my opinion (plus I used some of the donuts to buy baskets to help my boyfriend's towns out). I didn't expect to get all the prizes anyways (irrespective of the 2 week wait for Faberge egg) but luck was on my side and I did, so in my mind that was a bonus . And I got Shary Bobbins on the last spin on the last day, so yay for that. But yes, I understand for those who did all that work and got fences and fences and egg piles and beach umbrellas and no great prizes, not so fun.
