    I'm hoping they will be increasing the drop rate on keychains and coasters, because so far I've only managed to do one upgrade. I also log in every four hours during events, and I'm doubting I will even make level two before act two starts at this rate.

    I crafted a bunch of things to get players club points. It'll be difficult for me to get one upgrade to level two, let alone ten. I think I'm screwed.

    Just remember we are only 4 days into a 35 day event, plenty of time to craft things

    Read above your post. You have plenty of time to get all

    I think it's still got me doing regular daily challenges. The chest shows donuts and not coins. I've done all the tasks so far in this event.

    Plenty of time

    Daily challenges has which gave 25 tiers untill now where 2 thats 50 total
    Every 10 coins give 4 tier of either kind, because you have 10 coins every 4 hrs thats a total of 10x6x32days total 1920

    To level up you need 20 bars to get to lvl 3, each bar is 50 or 40 tiers. To make it even you need 10x50 and 10x40 is a total of 900 tier.

    Gained 1920+50 is 1970 minus the level up of 900 is 1070 to spend on each crafting you want

    Relax

    I agree that there is plenty of time and it is doable but your math is flawed.

    Even if you do get four crafting items per 10 coins (not sure that is true for me), had all ten characters and able to complete the casino job (4hrs) six times per 24hrs. You'd still only get 4 x 6 x 32= 768 if there is a full 32 days.

    A much more realistic amount for people with all 10 characters and if the above is true would be completing the job 4 or at the most 5 times a day. 4 x 4 x 32 = 512 or 4 x5 x 32 = 640.

    Plus not sure how crafting material will be distributed in Acts 2&3. We may get different items from the different casinos.

    I'm hoping that EA have worked the maths out on this one properly so that we don't end up with a (did anybody mention the numbered disc on the splashscreen yet - and what it looks like?) uneven distribution of calculations shall we say.

    I keep thinking of the Community Prize Fiasco (that they magically fixed in the end) and the strange case of the Gold Elf Cannon.

    I'm no Pollyanna but I believe that this one will all turn out for the best.

    Who wouldn't want a fountain, it's nice, especially if it's a limited edition event fountain.

    For me, fountains, of any time, are the least desirable decoration. I'd rather have a nice shrub over any fountain.

    Who wouldn't want a fountain? Wasting DOZENS of GALLONS of perfectly good water daily, by flinging it through the air in a pretty arch is the God-given right of all first world societies. It's been so for millenia.

    How else could we so effortlessly display our opulence and dominion over the unfortunate?

    :mrgreen: Ditto... fountains rule :mrgreen:

    Seems easily achievable.

    I've upgraded to Tier #8, have not crafted any decorations yet.

    Just got Britannia Casino, onto the last price of this Act!

    Looking for friends who play hourly ?

    5 also. Working on getting to 7 by tonight. Was lucky and got a daily challenge for coasters. And lucky on slots.

    It's funny - I now HOPE that I don't get offered donuts for my challenge! :D

    Is anyone still getting crap prizes for the challenge - ie, money or Springfield Heights stuff?

    If I know I'll get something event-related, I'll dismiss my next one donut challenge, but I don't want to do that if I might end up with $2000 instead!

    I just got to notch 5, and I'm close to enough swag to get to notch 6. Hoping I'll get to level 2 of crafting in the next 2 days!

    I think the strategy to craft everything available and THEN work toward leveling up makes sense. I wasn't sure what to do for the first couple of days, but then I focused on crafting and now I'm on leveling - this works best, IMO, so once I get to level 2, it's back to crafting!

    I am currently 4 out of 10 steps away from tier 2, I wish EA would make it a little easier to get crafting currency. Relying on the luck of the draw from Moe's Gambling kinda sucks.

    I dismissed a red chip task today hoping for craft stuff and it was replaced by $3000 cash. D'oh.

    I'm thinking to keep pace, you need to activate level 2 with Act 2, and level 3 with Act 3. Which having crafted all available level 1 items - it is making this upgrade thing super hard without playing all day long.

    Currently 7 steps in with like 5-6 days left.

    I think any of these options would make a more pleasant experience:
    -Require half the number of steps to upgrade the tier (meaning only have to purchase 5 upgrade)
    -Require half the number of materials for the upgrade tier craftable (25/20 instead of 50/40)
    -Increase the materials given out with the slot machine (2 to like 5 or 10 even)
    -Only have to purchase 1 upgrade box, but it can require like 110/100 of the items.

    The gamblers are randomly pooping out less tokens & keychains when I tap them lately.
    Jim! For daily challenges I'm Martini rich and Ticket poor!
    Level-up Tier 5 and still not worried.
    Also, it still doesn't matter whether we choose to craft or upgrade first. Same destination.

    3 bars from lvl 2.
    Crafted everything I could to get the cards as well as hi as I could.
    Got Lucius sweet so I am now focusing on getting to lvl 2 and earning extra donuts.
    I hope luscious has good animations outside.

    I hope the spruce moose plane has some animation with it. It looks pretty cool. Would like to be the first of others to have
    In a airfield part of my Springfield.

    I'm only 2 squares in.......looks like I have no chance.
    Getting very very few key chains or coasters.

    I've crafted everything I can except trading the consolation tickets for red chips. Is that even worth doing?

    I'm only 2 squares too and I play way more than I should. I'm up to 80,000 chips. Idk how to get stuff to level up. It's taking for ever. I just want the spruce moose.
