    It appears the majority of people here are between levels 15 & 16. Thinking of spending donuts to get that GOLD cannon? Well it will cost anywhere from 6500-7000 donuts-close to $300 dollars. I wonder if we will get a destroyed cannon with some cogwheels for a prize next year.

    I wonder if we will get a destroyed cannon with some cogwheels for a prize next year. A noteworthy comment if I ever seen one LOL. It simply was not possible to get to 20 in this event without spending donuts. And I dare say anyone who would spend that many donuts on this one thing is NUTS. I have gotten every single elf possible including from the 1 day extension forcast and I will not have enough to go from level 15 to 16 canon. Something like this should have been attainable like the castle upgrades were in clash of clones event. Letting beyond the cap level be the bragging rights thing. But even in that event the bragging rights levels beyond the cap were attainable through the normal game play of the event not something you had to spend money on to obtain. There is more than enough premium content that they don't need to do this too. I keep getting the sinking feeling we are going to get ripped up one of these days and they make everything premium so there is no point in playing any more. Though I don't know why since they are making as much money as they are on the game already.

    Level ten.

    if you didn't post the pic, i'd have thought you were joking. But thanks for that pic, so i could see what a joke the difference in levels was!

    i thought the WHOLE cannon would be gold! (or silver) like the gold house! that would have been cool to put in its yard.

    but just gold trim? really, EA? you expected people to fork out loot for THAT? DON'T DO IT, PREMIUMS. DON'T GIVE OUT MONEY FOR THAT.

    so lame. sheesh. :roll:

    I'm level 15 and I'm certain that without donuts, level 20 is literally impossible

    Got Level 16 this afternoon and pleased to finally get it...

    Seeing the cannon's change I could care less now at not having Level 20, it's no big change and I could do without it since I won't even notice it or even care about it after the event- same as the castle levels after ****.

    I was able to reach level 16 yesterday, but just can't see anyone earning the level 20 cannon without spending donuts. Has anyone contacted EA to see if it was possible or what they had to say about it?

    Asked twice the same question here on forum, i guess nobody has... :roll:

    I was wondering whether this was EA's way of seeing who has "too" many donuts as it were ;) Not mentioning the reason cos well we not allowed too but you know what i mean ;)

    I was also thinking that it could be a bait item.

    Though it's more likely that they just got the math wrong when they crafted the level benchmarks. And it could never be fixed because much like notable non-critical bugs from prior events (**** - logout glitch, Easter - baskets, Christmas/Valetines - wheel pointer being off) and stackables, this game's development process provides almost no manpower for fixing non-critical bugs.

    No biggie, it'll probably end up in storage anyway.

    Thank you, Neo :)

    I was wondering about the bait item too, I was top of my friend list for elves shot but suddenly today two of my neighbours have massively more and gold cannons have appeared and I'm at the 5th spot - not that it matters to me really. Maybe they rushed it all with donuts, there's no rule that you can't, but for me that'd be more money than sense lol.

    When the event 1st started i looked at rushing the Cannon and saw how many donuts it would take and thought hell No i aint doing that hence why i am so far down my friends list :lol:

    I think it's a bit of a worry if EA have done this on pupose. It's relatively easy for them to work out what somebody can acheive just through collecting the rewards an adjust the targets to match.

    I would not be surprised if in future events the final prize targets are set to be fairly unachievable and the only way to get them is to buy them with donuts.

    Seriously, THAT'S the gold cannon????? The gold on the solid gold mansion looks more...well....GOLDEN.

    I'll take my silver cannon and go home. Thanks for the post Neuro!

    I probably won't make it to level 16 by noon today but now I think I'm okay with that!
