Update to reduce insane elixir price for free walls?

I really hope that comes down a bit too. I spent some time leveling up my castles to get to that point. When I found out they were 100,000 plus elixir, I crapped. Way too high.

    Good idea. I've been mindlessly buying Barbarian castle stuff instead.

    Just wondering if peeps think that EA might release a patch to reduce the price on the free walls, once you reach lvl 20.

    105,000 is such a massive leap from the previous level, it pretty much has to be a programming mistake, so will EA patch it or not?

    Just curious what people think tbh

    You can buy walls for 200 from the mane castle in your inventory so why spend 10000???

    You missed a zero. 105,000 not 10,000.

    The issue some people are having is that on the other two castles going above level 20 costs 105,000 and you get one wall. There are alternatives.

    - Buy the walls for donuts.
    - Use something else for walls.
    - Make all three castles into one big one and use the main castle walls for the majority.
    - Back the castles into the hills and don't use a wall at all on the back side.
    - Hope for a change in the elixir price for those two castle upgrades.
    - And some just don't care at all, because they'd like to be able to put all this in inventory.

    Hope that helps explain.

    They are talking about the walls for the other 2 castles. Not the main castle.

    The fact is, even barbarian walls cost 105k so this must be an error. Why spend 105k for them when you can buy them from the shop at a ridiculous price?

    Right. Unless there is some other reason to have that castle over 20, and I've not seen any such reason. Does it change it's looks as it goes up?

    I dont think update will come, the price is that high because they want people to spend donuts that they did not spend generally on these event.

    Might be in the minority, but there's no way in hell that I'd spend donuts on walls or towers.

    The 15 free donuts now seems to be an effort to get us to buy more to bridge the gap to the towers. :x


    Well played EA....

    I upgraded Bart's castle to level 20 because I thought I read the walls were 10,000. Now I feel like I wasted my elixir upgrading it.

    Kinda of hoping that since the event is so long, there maybe more stuff for elixir released. Have 70,606 in it, & my castles are complete since I chose to spend the donuts on the Recycle & Boxingham. Since it seems that it will be a very long time till another land expansion will be released, the castles will not be made any bigger.

    Would like to know what is after the wall. Leveled up to get the max nerds. My Homer is at 65, Lisa @ 40, Bart @ 30 & Marge @ 21

    I want to keep playing and accumulating elixir/gold- in case they add more event updates. But i'll be pissed as * if I grind away every day and this is all we get for a month, or if they don't fix the 105,000 upgrade price.

    at my current rate i could earn 3 or 4 walls by the end of the event...maybe 5 or 6 walls if i make a bit more of an effort

    where's the motivation? :?

    they need to change something, i don't see why anyone will play past level 20....maybe if it were 100,000 elixir and we get a few donuts, only then would people play

    I wish we were getting donuts for excess gold, like we got them for emblems in Stonecutters. :mrgreen:

    Of course if that was the case EA would have been all over fixing that glitch.
