    The Donut Welfare Program Starts Today!!

    First Person to explain why the majority hated the new Krustyland update gets a free $10 iTunes gift card!!
    Which you can then use for a tray of 132 donuts. I'll PM the code for the iTunes gift card to the winner.

    Go!!

    I'm british so I'm probably excluded, but it was disliked because it wasn't a spring field update. People don't like krustyland. It's as simple as that. The building was also too small and the character too insignificant for most users.

    The majority hate the Krustyland update because the update did not involve their Springfield. Long ago most abandoned their Krustyland for many reasons 1. too difficult to get all the land 2. not enough decorations / items 3. additional time to log on to a second city. Most likely TSTO players joined to control a Springfield and Krustyland is not Springfield. They would a have chosen a different game had they been interested in a theme park.

    So people were unhappy that Springfield was not the focus - no new buildings for Springfield and no new land. This game is based on the concept of building and decorating the Simpson's town. Frustrating is boiling over the inability to do just that because of the scarcity of land and the lack of new SF content in this update. Also the character added is an unexpected and disappointing choice.

    The reason why people complain is because they care and they are anticipating new and exciting additions to their town. When an update does not garner to their expectations they feel let down and complaining follows.

    Also, EA does seem to pay attention and implement at least some ideas that are generated on this board. Therefore, complaining can produce a desired result in the future.

    Best update ever. No premium char so I could save donuts for halloween, and no cash buildings so I can save money for the zirconia.

    Generalized Vercua Salt temperaments? "I want what I want and I want it NOW!" Most have ignored Krustyland, so they had to wait to start new quests?

    People put their main effort in SF and kinda neglect KL while they spend their hard saved donuts on buildings and characters for SF... therefore when there is an update that features only KL rides it bums them out, especially when they expected an update and be surprised to see it's focus on their neglected theme park.

    [edit: i don't think that iTunes gift cards are available in my country so that keeps me out the donut reach]

    Darn, I like this update, and I like your avatar.

    My guess is it players who are bored with the game, and nothing is good enough. They are really ready to move on, but still kind of love the game, so they hang on unhappy, but hoping that the game will some how bring back the old spark. The game is still the game and won't change. The game tries new things like spinning wheels and old favorites, but nothing works. The players either need to accept the game for what it is or move on a find new love with a new game, so sad :cry:

    Happy tapping to all :)

    Sorry you're not the majority but I'm glad you're enjoying the update.


    A lot of good responses so far but not the answers I'm looking for.

    I always support KL, because SF is too cramped! ... I play Hayday and other similar games, they always span over to additional lands because the primary land is mostly over-crowded... How I wish TSTO can be expanded to more lands in addition to KL, this will loosen the resource constraints in the main SF land.

    Thanks for gift card offer, I'd pass. I enjoy sharing of comments, not b'cos of prizes. 8)

    You said the first person to explain why the majority hate the update. We have each explained reasons why the update is disliked. We fillifilled your 'quest' if you will.

    To many Josh's of the forum, sadly, they will never be satisfied as you said.

    I'll take a crack at it...though it may * some people off.

    Basically. People are unjustly entitled whiners. EA is a business and should be expected to try to make money. The fact that they give us free content at all (especially as much as they have given us) should be enough to make people happy yet for some reason it isn't.

    When you couple this with the fact that KL was updated before adding more important things like more land (heck that's probably the primary reason people were pissed right there) or main characters like maggie, sideshow bob, etc. it makes people act irrationally stupid and ungrateful.

    The majority of what? Of the absurdly low number of people who are registered this forum? Or of the microscopic few who have posted in this forum in the past day and a half since it hit? Or of the millions of players of the game?

    You have absolutely no credible evidence that any meaningful "majority" hated this update.

    Would of been a tad easier if you'd mentioned you wanted a specific answer.

    Even Nino Brown handed out turkeys


    I'd even be willing to give the iTunes code to a mod and tell them the answer I'm looking for and they can give it out to the person with the correct answer.

    Simple to find? Well then...
    Krustyland is a mistake the developers wish they could take back. People want to invest in their Springfields not something that's just an after thought.

    Personally I don't think that's the complete reason some of the forum users dislike the updates. There's many reasons that all contribute to it.
