Is it actually possible for freemium players to get everything for this Halloween event?
Yes. The only donuts I've spent came from the event itself. I cleared phase 1 with 3-4 days to spare. Phase 2 took a bit longer (2-3 days early) but only because I stopped opening treat bags (saving for phase 3). Also, I have crafted one of each prize (not the walls or jarred humans).
This discussion has been closed.
But to craft all craftable items, I would say no. I crafted Hugo, and by the end of event I should have enough for Queen, but nothing else, becuse i have only 5 trick or treaters (level 19) , and fences and chocolate bars are dropping to little. MAYBE, if you had all available trick or treaters,but I think you still won't get enough fences.
The only donuts I spent was to get Kodos. I didn't pay for them...I had nearly 300 donuts saved from the previous year of playing TSTO when this event started. I got 30 donuts back using the missles from the ray gun and got maybe 10-15 donuts from the treat bags and visiting neighbors.
Also, I actually got the donut torture device and hover-coptor 2-3 days before that portion of the event ended, so I was able to hoard bags and open them up after the new phase started.
It's quite easy for a freemium to get everything...just have to be consistent each day. I make sure I go in every 8 hours for the trick or treaters (I also have SVT from the daily prize box) and the missle and every few hours to tap the regellians running around my town. I also visit my neighbors daily to get more stuff.
I don't know if I will get the pumpkin house(s) and the hut but I am going to try my best I think I have enough for one at the moment but its just which one!
Good luck getting everything and max out your neighbours.
So far I've got all the personal prizes, including the hover-copter. Also crafted Hugo and the Spooky House. Still about 50 chocolate bars short of the Grand Pumpkin, and more than 100 broken fences short of the Rigellian Queen, but I think I'll be able to craft those in time.
Requirements for other components of the hut are lowered too, which is good because there are some people reporting scarcity of fences.
My kids are on permanent trick or treating - damn EA for keeping trying to take them to do pointless random tasks that have now dropped in half by money! Finally sucked in to let Nelson do that 12 hour task for his mum.
I managed the first part and got the donut machine about a day early. I ended up 15 Ray guns short but did have at least one slack day and had to spend 5 donuts. I crafted the queen this morning and still have over 200 of the other items but my chocolate bars have dried up on the last couple of days and I'm now stuck on 302 and 48 short of the giant pumpkin.
It is possible but you need a lot of kids for trick and treating - having the twins and squeaky voice teen helps but it takes them 16 hours for the task. Having neighbours helps - thank you to my neighbours for helping out along the way, I've tried to reciprocate but have focused on those struggling to get enough items. And, a bit of luck with your bags helps also. It is possible but it's hard work.
I've only spent donuts on Witch Marge. I have no other premium characters.
