EA email

12 free donuts were given awhile back as compensation/apologies for the post-Easter lag issues. Reply back to them, get your donuts.

    I too received an email today from EA advertising this event. The subject line was : Get a head start on a new Tapped Out Update with free donuts.

    The body of the message has a graphic of the splash screen, but the most interesting part of the message is this:

    "Don't miss out on your chance to unlock the secrets of the stonecutters! PLUS 24 FREE DONUTS!"

    I have heard about the 10 free that we get later, but where are the others? Could this message be referring to the 'mystery' donuts some (NOT ME) have reported receiving?

    yeah, there's gossip that more free donuts are on the way once you finish all Stonecutters quest lines and collect the prizes. then there's more gossip that your extra emblems you earn after winning the final prize could be converted to donuts. at least there's an email, something somewhat official from EA, stating more free donuts are on the way. so woohoo!

    I got 20 yesterday or today (days have been blending together) for finishing the MAIN quest line....not the side quests once new character skins are unlocked.

    I got it in my feeder towns email. It's odd because I don't use that town anymore, and I sure didn't get 12 donuts when the event started. :?

    Maybe these were the mysterious 12 donuts some people were getting when the event started. The question is why didn't everyone get them... :?

    I just got 20 doughnuts after finishing my main quest line. I actually came here to see if someone had a screen shot of the black box text that came up. I was collecting the cabs and tapped past it to the giveaway.

    They gave us 20 free donuts to make up for the lag, and that was a week or two before the event started. This was another thing altogether...

    Hi there,

    Did anyone else receive an email from EA Mobile regarding the Stonecutters event and offering 12 free donuts?

    Yes I got the email too!

    Oh that's right. So the 12 new donuts are coming? And there will be 20 more when the main quest is completed? Sweet!

    Most people got the 12 at some point the second day of the event IIRC, some on the third. There is 20 after finishing the main storyline and has been proven multiple times over. There is also supposed to be something else coming soon, it was reported to be on the 20th so maybe people got the special thing early

    I have seen nothing of these fabled donuts ... except those posting on here having received them. Got the 20 as an apology for the lag issues after Easter, but this additional 12, nothing.

    Is there no explanation out in the wild of what these were for? Were they supposedly for everyone, compensation for those suffering a specific issue, using a specific device, born in a hospital using EA's corporate colours?

    I think we should be told ...

    No clue, they just appeared in our accounts. According to TSTO Addicts it's supposed to be a kicker to start us on the event, once you start on the main questline
