What grade would you give Part 1 of the Winter Event?
I would give it a solid C. Somewhat one-dimensional event that bordered on a dull grind plus very, very glitchy gameplay has made this phase average, at best.

Half the tunnel gifts are things I wouldnt pay a penny of in game cash for.
I'd give it a B if we get to keep Santa.
The cool brown house needs Xmas lights.
As for the tunnel I liked the cabin even though it's a decoration Wiggum house and house boat was the best facades
I did enjoy the game play and the variety of tasks, but the the prizes are really weak in this round. I also wasn't a huge fan of the "Feds"...that part of it should have been thought out better.
Only because of the tunnel prizes for players that have been playing a long time. I mean come on Candy Cane, Bell, THE CIDER STALL?! I hope they've put more effort into phase 2 prizes.
Really hoping the items I wanted to purchase become available soon and really looking forward to part 2.
Compared to events from previous years it would probably be a C due to lack of good prizes. Though the second phase should make up for that.
Prizes (B): Christmas lights for more houses and few winter themed items for fans of the show.
Stability/Timely bug fixes (C): Game is crashing more frequently the last few days and there's an issue with the Fed count.
Neighbor play (A-): Ability to get neighbors involved is always enjoyable. Still don't get why EA is limiting the number though. Between that and limiting the max number of Feds per town, I'm just guessing it's a database limitation.
Overall (B): I'm enjoying myself without having to spend an excessive amount of time playing.
This pretty much sums up my view of it.
I've given it a 'C' because of glitches. Actually downloading the update in the 1st place took ages. I had to stop and start again next morning. I have two less elves than my husband. Getting odd amounts of Feds. (Feds & handshakes should always be in multiples of 3.) getting handshakes when not overrun by Feds also annoying. Game crashing over & over when doing visits. Lags. Tunnel not opening on at least 1/3 of tries.
The prizes were a little 'meh' in some cases. The white lawn angel that can only be placed on a white lawn, for instance. Getting lights for houses I haven't bought was also annoying.
The most annoying thing of all was not getting Zutroy and knowing I have to waste time dealing with EA if I want to receive what I've competed for.
Without the glitches I wouldn't have minded the less than exciting prizes, in fact I'd have given it an 'A'.
