    it was a glitch. Game is fixed now. Everyone should be able to get into their games now. Let me know if you can't.

    I totally get what you're saying, however I did not exploit anything and I'm locked out as well. So I'm lost as to what is really going on


    And the ones that Im referring to are the ones who got more than 3 doughnuts, they know who they are I had a chat with EA today Hopefully they will Make good on their promise. time will tell.

    Okay. I understand where you're coming from though. I can't say I like how people resort to taking advantage of things just because. But hey, that's their choices, right?

    Btw, I talked to 3 people via chat about this problem. Give your game a try. I just tried again after 12+ hours of being locked out and it seems to be working fine now. My game was rolled back to right after I took the Gil deal, which isn't far at all from where I was when I was booted.

    Nobody cheated!!! The XP collider is a valid item in the game. The level up screens are programmed to go up to level 939, so nobody cheated to get to that level either. The game developers obviously expected people to get to that level, or else it wouldn't have been coded that way.

    I don't know who cheated who didn't. I got locked out even before I found out about the glitch. Bought 2 items (with my multiplier and collider 1 prison bus gave me 500 levels) and Bart screen ever since. I'm glad I got my things back. It is sad I always miss the fight clubs but if that means I would lose my 2000 donuts and 600 million in game money, I prefer missing it and getting my stuffs back. The glitch is for those whose multiplier kicked them too fast it bypasses all quests and level ups I think, at least it seems to be still glitchy for me in this issue, but I'm glad no more Bart screen. Would have been nice they balance out a bit for us who missed the club, or give us a few more days of events to catch up for lost time, but still have to thank the team for reacting and fixing fast to allow game access for the majority of innocent players.

    I just started playing today, waited until I read on the forum people were back in their games. I'm a bit confused, did people get more donuts than normal leveling up would have given them anyway, or are some people just upset that they achieved these donuts faster than others. Will everyone eventually get the same amount of donuts, but it's just going to take longer, or did they somehow get extras. Not that it makes a difference to me either way, but just trying to understand why a few people are upset. It's more fun to me to take my time and have more things to work at obtaining, than to get everything all at once. Also donuts I might waste on items, and speeding up tasks now, might be better spent later after I have acquired them slowly, on future released content.

    So if I'm correct no one lost here, just some gain faster than others.

    they meant us to be entertained by this leveling up process for a long term deal of having something to shoot for, even if they weren't real levels. now everybody is already done, having gotten all the donuts associated with the levels AND MORE than anyone starting now will be able to get (because it was awarding the bonus donut boxes every 40,000 XP instead of the 1,000,000 it takes today. So.... it was a great 60th birthday bash for TSTO. Whether they meant it to be a limited time party like that or not, 'twas!

    From my understanding there has been a mistake in the experience needed to level past 60.

    Level 61 and each level surpassing it till 939 only needed 40.000 experience each, causing many bonus donuts and confusion since not everybody had this happen to them.

    There are people who got locked out of their games for very long times and might still be locked out right now since the introduction of level 60. This might be tied to getting stuck on a certain level past 60.

    Every level came with a regular level up message and a reward of 1 donut. After you tapped all these popups away you got the bonus donuts screen, prompting you to pick a box. Regular stuff, except these boxes kept popping up for every 40.000 exp (level) you gained.

    At level 939 you stopped gaining levels but it'd still cost you 40.000 exp to gain an extra round of bonus donuts, resulting in mass farming with the XP Collider.

    Looking at the way you enjoy playing the game (taking your time, earning your items), missing the chaos has been a blessing in disguise for you. People on the forum reported accidentally leveling up due to the low requirements needed which bumped them up to a level that quite possibly caused the lockout for them.

    Welcome back to the forum; Enjoy your mayhem!

    Ok thanks for clarifying that for me. All I can say is after all this time, and multiple donut producing glitches, it just seems like it's a part of the game. Like I said, nothing lost, no need to get upset.

    Oh Well, I'm actually enjoying Act 3 of this event more than the other 2, having fun moving somethings around, and trying to make everything fit together nicely. I'm glad everyone's who got locked out, is back in and now I'm going to go and collect some bandits.

    How long term was it supposed to be? I have enough money to bring me another 1200 levels, at the million per level rate, and it would only take like 2 hours to do it.

    Yes they did! they cheated to get up to level 939 if their XP was set to 1 million like mine it would take them a lot longer and they wouldn't get 6000 free donuts what part are you not comprehending.

    Can we please stop arguing about glitches quoting each other in what seems like a flame war? thanks


    Did you get back into you game? I've been worried about you.

    I thought the patch increased the amount of xp needed in between levels. I'm on level 64 and required xp is still 40,000.

    Am I mistaken?

    40,000 until you reach lvl 100 then to 500,000 which still can be progressed rapidly with a decent bonus %, $150mm in cash, and paying for 1 day (Collider) thereby netting you just shy of 900 free donuts. From there you can continue earning 1-3 donuts per 500,000 so limitless supply of donuts if enough in-game cash. Buy/sell bloodmobiles.

    No, that isn't true. My level from 60 to 61 was also 1 million. You had the same opportunity I did. I regularly leveled up once or twice a day with the 10 million XP limit. I have lots of buildings and a large multiplier. I always have KEM's being built on a 4 hr cycle for the XP, which I sell and build again after the 4 hours. I had $100 million saved up to spend on XP producing decorations for when the next level hit and the XP requirement was lowered. My strategy did not change at all. I've already gotten 4 or 5 bonus boxes since the updated XP level to 1 million.

    You were poorly prepared for a level, and your strategy was inferior to mine. I simply played the game like I always do. Was it more advantageous than normal when I did it? Yes, but that doesn't make it cheating, any more than buying donuts on a Gil sale is cheating. What part are you not comprehending?

    Fully support the Kwik-E-Mart gameplay, mentioned by the poster above. Buying and selling them every four hours really helps your XP levels and the timeframe fits in very well with this event.
