New Players and The Holiday Spoils???

The clock is more of an estimate, there may still be time to get everything.

    This plus they do make the events possible for new players to complete that's why they keep the level required to start it low.

    Also don't forget that you don't have to update your game right away when it ends you'll have a few days to play before you are forced to update btw how many strands do you even have

    Ground this game like an rpg so short on rewards??? I'ge been grinding so hard on this game and know I will be falling so very short for the two only pieces I wanted fro the THOH and really cant afford the donuts personally. Only gonna be 1500 short of U.B.O. and gonna be a slight short on Hugo. Frustrating for a person starting two weeks ago. Love this game and actually have gotten the whole family playing as well. Just seems to start out is harder for anyone to enjoy the holiday spoils as a new player. Can you try to tweek this a bit for the newer players coming down the line. Thank you. Best EA game ever.

    This event was fairly hard but still completable for a free player. You being a new player and only starting two weeks ago didn't have much of a chance but that is the way it should be IMO. You still got some good free stuff just not everything.

    I didn't get all the prizes from the 1st two events I played in and the majority of my level 45/46 neighbors didn't get all the prizes from this event. Don't get discouraged, keep grinding money/xp, visiting neighbors, expanding your SF and leveling up. When the next major event (Xmas) comes around you'll be in much better shape to complete that event.

    That's the problem with a lot of the events this year. If you played the everyday or at least 80% of the event you should be able to get all the free prizes that the event has to offer. In previous years it was exactly like that (except WD). Now they turn the game into a mess and can't seem to find a balance between fair, and super easy.

    Seriously they need to stop making events where a person has to sign 10 times a day to have a chance to win. People have lives too. I can't babysit my game, but I also enjoy it too much, so when I miss items it kinda defeats all the excitement for the event.

    By my clock, there's still a day and a half to go before the end of the event, even if they don't extend it. You might be able to get the rest of the LPS in time. I wasn't working at it that hard, and averaged almost 2000 per day.

    If you have the time, then keep grinding. I'm sure you can make it! Maybe get a golden scratcher, buy some eggs and dump them on the least active neighbor you have.

    I started playing in late summer 2013 and remember THOH that yr required a task at El Chemistri on lvl 26. I was frantically trying to level up on time to complete the task. Part of the game draw is that not everything is completable for everyone, which makes it more addictive to play and results in every town being slightly unique - based on both when you started and how much youre willing to pay, or not pay. I'll tell you that none of the prizes in this event are that amazing. So while I know you want them, there will be better stuff down the road. Good luck!

    I don't think it is an estimate in this event. The Probes, Ray Guns, etc. shut down quite precisely for this event so there is no reason to think that Protein Strings will be any different. The event may extend longer for a day; but, I think only for Trick-O-Treating and crafting and not for the UBO goal.

    as soon as you craft him he's yours to keep and i'm not exactly sure but i think his quests will disappear after if you dont finish it on time since you'll need the spooky house to do that

    That's a freemium game for you: Make you work very hard to complete the events, or pay money to know you'll get it done without worries.
