    1. did they speed up the time that it takes for money on the ground to get collected??? seems faster?

    Yes, time was reduced from 10 seconds to 5 seconds

    2. did they increase the speed/amount that you can scroll through the buildings/decoration list with 1 swipe?

    Yes, also includes smoother movement. Also affects taskbook and anything that scrolls

    3. did they change when you click the trophy??? it used to show every prize, and the amount.. now theyre all darkened out and mysterious.

    No, only the ones you have are lit up. It never showed all in full color, just the name of the item was next. Once you get a prize, it is lit up.

    Why do you care? Just play the game for yourself, too many people get so concerned when they see neighbors that have completed the event already by paying for everything. If it bothers you just un-friend them.

    Well, sounds like cheating not donuts to me....and I don't like people who hack their games....so indeed as said above..unfriend them (although I would care just like you :wink: ).

    I agree, however, I find myself speeding characters through their tasks when I need one of them for one of number 1's tasks. Kind of makes me cringe every time. I think I will just leave my characters free for most of this event...

    Ditto, I leave everyone free (unless needed for the questline or one of the parchment puzzles) until I get the fourth task, in case I need them.


    One of the things I find neat about this event is that not all of it can be sped through. You might be able to get all the emblem prizes with donuts, but the parchment only unlocks one bit per day, and there's no donut option. No one is getting Grandpa's stonecutter skin until the fifth day of the event, full stop. It's a great way to keep interest, I think.

    Totally agree. And the daily tasks (with actual big amounts of emblems to be earned) make me actually interested in playing. Something that TSTO hasn't done for me in a long time.

    i'm putting characters on 1 or 2 hour tasks during the day and 8-12 hour when i go to bed works perfectly as they are usually always ready for number 1 tasks.

    First, I DO need to point out something that is a little bit of a pet peeve of mine..."USUALLY ALWAYS?" What in the heck is that supposed to mean?? Sorry...can't help it... :roll:

    Anyway, This is actually the MOST annoying part of this event for me. Having to consistantly log into my game throughout the day. While I do love the game, and would love to be able to play as much as required, my schedule basically alllowed me one login per day when I got home from work (around 9:30PM), which would leave me almost no time to do anything for this event.

    Now I have to log in on my phone throughout the day, which has trouble handling the game reliably. Luckily, the phone does seem capable for now...

    Once I determine how much time the quest takes I put the other characters on tasks of the same amount - then everyone is finished at the same time for the next quest/test. Course, i need the money - just made my first million woo hoo! - I know many people have lots.

    As an admitted occasional task-speeder-upper in the past, I was stunned to see it costs 40 donuts to speed up even those one-hour tasks from Number 1. Wow. THAT is a waste of donuts. Even for ME. :shock:

    I really like the way this event is setup. You can either sacrifice time or donuts to complete it. I feel this is more than fair for both freemium and premium players.

    It costs the same amount to skip it from Number One's menu. No loopholes, I guess! (But yeah, way to much for me to spend. I only have 80 pink sprinklies left after buying all the stonecutters stuff.)

    My real life friend had 33k emblems on day 1. He works hard and makes good money, has no family to support so throws a couple of hundred quid at games every month. He's supporting the game so others can play for free. You think EA would continue to make this game if NOBODY bought donuts? Anyway, he's supporting the game you play so you can imply that he's a cheat and remove him from your friends list.

    Also I'm sad for you that you care so much about a game that you have to police your friends list this way. I hope one day you'll find something worthwhile to fill that gap in your life and be happy.
