Worst. Event. Ever. (The search for consensus.)

Bet this is gonna be a nail biter. (Not.)

You might want to run a follow-up poll, asking what was the SECOND worst event. :)

    Having only heard the now-legendary tales of the-event-that-shall-not-be-named...the worst in my experience has to be ****. Far too easy, no connection to the Simpsons universe, too long.

    I will admit that I like my stone castle though.

    As much as I hate Easter, and I did, Clash of Clones was pointless, had nothing to do with the Simpsons, and was about 2 weeks too long

    I voted Whacking Day for the simple fact that it was absolutely ludicrous what EA expected from us to get all the prizes for that event.

    I'll never understand just how I got all the prizes for it.

    If you mean worst as in "ew", then definitely Clash of Clones. I had no interest in it and essentially skipped the event entirely.

    In theory bonus donuts were available for extra snakes once finishing Whacking Day but NOBODY got any... Just cash. Apart from that it's still my favourite event. £a$ter is obviously the worst.

    I started playing at Valentine 2014, so I'll disregard anything earlier. My vote goes to **** simply because it's not simpsons related and it was way too easy to complete. Immediately above **** there should be Easter, for common sense, but I feel like Valentine should be lower. Despite the easter boxes genocide, easter prizes were way better than valentine's, in particular the buildings were among the best buildings in any event after Halloween and stonecutters. And both valentines and easter had wheels.

    So, wall of shame:
    1: ****
    2: Valentine 2014
    3: Easter 2014

    And I'm sticking with my original answer. Guess! Haven't played the event before Christmas 2013, so not totally informed.

    Clash of Clones was stupid, pointless, and annoying, but E***** was h***. At least I still like Wizard Marge. I don't think I have ANYTHING from E***** that I like and most of it's in storage.

    I loved the Stonecutters event. One of my favorites.

    I voted Easter. Was it even possible to get everything in that event without spending donuts?

    Technically, but I know of about two people who did. All my neighbors with all the prizes spent many donuts. (I tapped my fingers off and missed four of the major prizes.)

    Only if you were lucky, that's why the box system was so ****. Shari was an exception, since you had to open something like 80 gold boxes just to hope for a chance. Did anyone win shari without donuts?

    Worst by far was and is the event that shall not be named, but the most pointless was the C o C event, it was just a way to promote a new game.

    Edit : typo

    80 gold boxes was the guarantee! Twenty boxes total gave a chance, but the odds on her were incredibly low. I've seen reports from about two people who got her with no donuts.

    This is hard! Haha.

    I hated the Stone Cutters event based on terms of how it looked. Everything was so ugly and despite keeping the castles out I often think they're way too chunky and out of place. I also hated this Christmas event that passed for the same reason. Everything was just a boring and the prizes are so useless (especially that island!)

    E***** on the otherhand had awesome prizes but I was very busy during that time and didn't win anything special, which sucked. I wanted so many cool things and never got the time to try and win and it was too hard.

    So yeah, it's tough to choose because some events were so easy but the prizes were god-awful and the other ones had amazing prizes but were too hard.
    But we already did it. It took seven hours, but we did it. It's done.

    Easter in first. Ewwwww.
    **** as my second.
    The rest were kind of ok but 2012's were my favourite.

    The castles wasn't the stonecutters that was the C o C, the stonecutters was the simpsons version of the masons.

    Easter, hands down. Sure the prizes were great, but they made them virtually impossible to get, no matter how hard you tried. Maybe **** wasn't really Simpsons related but it was fun ( especially being able to visit other SF) and not just frustrating.

    I actually had fun with Clash of the Clones. (*sorry!*) That one, I really enjoyed. Easter, bleh... All that work for unobtainable prizes. So many glitches. Gah!
