    I don't get it.....I capped out for the day on my second project today.

    Stuck for 24hrs with no chance to progress.

    Are some people just not getting capped?

    Cap is for eveybody only those who use donuts and get the last prize are capfree.

    Your stuck because you dont keep up your scorevyou allready did.
    If you need 3 projects for daily bonus start low! And take paper and pencil to do the math you take, try not to harvest more than 4500 for sure if yiu know tomorrow you will have to grind 3 projects.

    Today I only did 2 projects to, because I only needed 2 for getting the daily prize AND KNOWING TOMORROW I NEED 3 PROJECTS I KEEP A VERY LOW (2) BLUEPRINT THEN WHEN I COLLECT MY DAILY PRIZE I WILL CALCULATED TO GET CLOSE TO 4500 ABD THEN TAKE A BIG ONE BECAUSE THEN MY CAP WILL GO AWAY BECAUSE HAVING THE FINALL PRIZE

    Its all about math nothing more.

    that happened to me as well late last night.
    I don't remember getting a bonus, just the two blueprint values.
    Cant turn in anymore projects till 4am my time.
    :-(
    I've read the strategy thread 3 million times and nothing seems to be working for me
    I am sitting on 76000 BP's and will make it but wanted a stab with no cap

    Me too, but more than that, I genuinely can't do maths :( Numbers + Me = Exploding Brain. I think I should plead discrimination to EA.... :mrgreen:

    EDIT: I also can't do quotes (there is no hope for me.... ) although in my defence, I think it was messed up before I got here!

    I love math. But you really don't need it here.

    I've been saving easy ones for the next day; 2 sometimes 3. Then I do the easy ones first, leaving easy ones for the next day. Then do the harder ones until I cap out. I usually work the project board from left to right, but sometimes find easy ones in the far right. I cap out each day. Today I turned in 6 projects in my RTTF town before capping out. And this is what I'm left with for tomorrow...

    That was earlier in the day. I have, of course, been grinding up the resources for tomorrow since then.

    I can't believe some people are already getting bonus rails! I was only able to get 2 projects turned in today before it wouldn't let me turn any more. What is the cap on the project board that I keep reading about? I'm confused! If this keeps happening I won't get my character prize. :(

    There is a cap on the project board that increases cumulatively as the days go by.

    See first post here: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/10349338.page

    Edit: Once you reach the end of the act 1 prize track, the cap is lifted. Some have spent donuts to get there quickly.

    Edit: Notice that the cap starts jumping by 9000 a day starting tomorrow.

    I don't think I'm doing this "right" but I'm doing it good enough. I'll be at 75,000 by the end of the night so I really can't complain.

    Is anyone else not getting the daily bonus screen coming up each day? I got the 5 day bonus a few days ago and haven't had any come up since.

    Ok
    Let me make sure I get this part. If you use donuts to finish the last prize the cap goes away? Or it goes away anyway once you reach last prize regardless ?

    And other than speculating how were we even supposed to know these numbers and there was a cap? Did ea just assume we'd figure this out or was it supposed to be all in good fun like the glitch du jour?

    Good question, I just assumed it went away. I hope I'm assuming correctly.

    Same here, it's unpredictable. Some days nothing, some days I get 2 bonus awards, one after the other. I think it works out in the end and the system eventually catches up with itself, but I haven't kept notes to confirm that. It's pretty much random when it falls in my game.
