30 donuts after the event!

No, I don't think they changed the % as I shot two down this morning and still a member of the no 30 donuts club. I got gummy bears :lol:

    The same exact thing happened to me. I saw the update in the app store and I knew I would have a rocket waiting for me from the ray gun, so I figured I'd shoot down one last UFO for the unlikely possibility of getting 30 donuts. I had to go through my friends to find a UFO since a lot of them updated. I found and BOOM, 30 donuts! Unbelievable.

    This week has been unbelievable actually. On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, I got 30 donuts each from shooting down a UFO. I had only previously gotten 30 donuts once near the beginning of the Halloween event. I am really happy b/c I'm a freemium and I spent 150 donuts on Kodos and the ray gun and another 60 donuts to get Kearney to get a premium trick or treater. I started the event with 289 donuts (or so) and with the conclusion of the event, I have 277 donuts. I'm pretty much back to where I was but with Kodos and Kearney!

    I am very very happy I made the decision to buy Kodos (by far my first choice for my next donut purchase as I wanted people like Frink, Jasper, Disco Stu, etc). I reasoned by getting Kodos and access to 3 missles per day, I would get at least 60 donuts from shooting down UFOs over the course of the event and 120 donuts is beyond my wildest dreams.

    Great event EA! Thank you!

    @RichardJH11 you were really lucky! I have only got 2x30 donuts, including this last one.

    But like you, I'm happy for the lasergun I have purchased at the beginning of the event.
    150 donuts for it and kodos, and I got 60 donuts back, plus so many prize from the 3 rocket generated daily.
    now waiting for xmas update to see which character to introduce in my SF :-)

    Agreed Frimar. Those who purchased Kodos at the beginning of the event made an excellent decision. The missles a day really helped, as you said, with the prizes. My main motivation was the donuts, but all the other stuff helped me reach my prizes faster and made it less stressful so it wasn't down to the wire. Besides, it just looks good having BOTH Kang and Kodos in my town instead of one. Can't have one without the other, you know? Too bad they weren't released together like Lou and Eddie, Patty and Selma, and Louie and Legs.

    I've had the same. The whole event, no donuts. I managed to get all the prices easy within time and shot down aprox 100 ufo's. But no donuts. Until this morning, with my last rocket. I finally got my 30 donuts! :D

    Maybe it's bad luck I had with no 30 doughnuts are maybe it's cause EA are jerks
    Against iPod touches.

    If anyone else on a iPod touch won 30 doughnuts
    Then sound off cause if not I think that's **** heh
    That differnt odds are written for differnt devices.

    I also played the hell out of that Easter event and
    Got no sherry bobbins.

    I still think they needed a task where at the end she flys her umbrella through
    The jet engine of a Boeing 747 passenger plane like in the end
    Of the show. Was fricking hillarious.

    Check it on YouTube if you never saw it or for a catch up.

    I don't think the odds have any connection to the device being used. That said, I totally understand your frustration. Any time you have probability at play, there are going to be people like yourself who are at the unlucky end of the spectrum, just like the people at the other end of the spectrum who got many 30 donut ships.

    Here's hoping fickle fate is kinder to you in the Christmas event!
