Lack of DNA

Prev13
EA probably did this to see how many users would spend donuts for the dna box. :lol:

    I thought it seemed like there were fewer Bob clones this morning. There was no warning about my SF being full. My husband didn't get a warning either. If the drop rate has slowed that's a bit mean. They already reduced the rate of gas masks from each clone.

    Visiting my neighbours this am, I noticed the mutant plants seem to have disappeared too.

    I also have a lot less mutants than before and indeed the DNA rate dropped dramastically. If a lot of people experience the same, it could be a bug?

    Doing my head in that they keep making it harder, then they add the Burns money tasks, then level 52.

    Struggling to keep up/care about the Bob event as it is when the last few weeks have already been such a slog

    I haven't seen any DNA from the clones this morning. EA must have drop the rate on that as well.

    Hopefully it will be sorted out & they increase the drop rate as well as increase the Bob clones. Because at this point it will be hard to craft everything unless you use donuts.

    And if they can't increase, then at least lower the amount needed for all crafting items.

    And I really hope they eliminate this "crafting" element from all future events going forward. Unless they tweak it to where it's more balanced and fair.

    Definitely less Bobs in my park after the last update. After being away for 6 hours I came back and there were only 25. I believe the previous number was up to 40 in 4 hours before they maxed out. While I was able to craft the Gas & Grub the reduction has impacted the ability to score extra donuts. Was getting 3 every 30-36 hours, now I'm lucky to score them every two days.

    It is annoying how EA decided to drop the CornBobs down after we upgraded our herbicide squirters to level 15. It really feels like cheating on their part. Hopefully act 3 will add more abilities to earn DNA since it is pretty slow now.

    I need 4000 DNA to get the Gas and Grub. I was away for an hour and had 7 clones which were all fertilizer.

    Is it just bad luck, or do EA want me to throw my phone against the wall?

    I really am getting tot he stage when I might just jack it in. EA constantly move the goalposts in their favour.

    They are sucking all the fun out of it.

    I need another 4000 DNA as well. I'm keeping all those who can earn DNA on those tasks but it's pretty slow going. I've got the farmers market and the smoke house and am not bothered about anything else although will craft if I have enough for anything.

    I have 2300 more dna to go, I already crafted the farmers market. Getting the gas n grub seems hopeless for many.

    I have about 7300 DNA, so I only need about a 1000 more for Gas N Grub.

    However, I was hoping to have at least 3600+ DNA on hand at the start of Act 3 to ease with some of the upgrading (and to get a certain decoy).

    So now I guess I will resist crafting Gas N Grub unless I manage to gather a total of 11,000+ DNA by the end of Act 2.

    I've gotten about 1300 DNA in the past 24 hours I think.

    (I'm at levels 20/15 for building/squirter.)

    I bet they throw in even more prizes soon that require DNA :O

    This is frustrating, but I just refuse to buy DNA in order to get the prizes. The only one I even want is Gas n Grub, though the others would be nice if I earned them.

    Out of pure speculation, the one item I speculate I will want to craft in Act 3 might possibly, I totally imagine, want a lot of CORN. So, based on pure speculation *cough cough*, I'm not using CORN for nuthin no more until that phase starts, and I'm collecting it like a maniac.

    (Note: this originally said "DNA" ... I meant "corn") :?

    I am close to having enough for the Gas n Go, although most of this was collected before they dramatically dropped the rates. I have heard that the Opera Stage will need DNA to upgrade in Act 3. :roll: (so stupid)

    Hmmm. That's a good point. I'm about 350 DNA short of the Gas N' Grub, but it looks like we're going to need between 3500-4000 DNA to upgrade the Opera House. Unlike upgrading the Research Center or Squirter, we're not getting a return on investment for all that DNA because the Opera House upgrades are for a fourth type of crafting material.

    I guess I'll wait til part 3 to craft the Gas N' Grub.

    I too do not seem to be progressing as fast as I was a few days ago with regards to DNA. I am still less than halfway to the DNA goal for gas n grub, and it seems very (too) slow now. The constant tweaking of the payouts by EA seems to be getting out of hand!!
