    Really? 900 donuts? Absolute waste for a pointless thing.

    Also, i'm sure the cogs drop has increased, I got cogs on nearly every other elf that I tapped, on one occasion I got them on 3 elves in a row.

    Do you play a hacked game?

    There is no need for level 20. Are you going to fire blanks every hour? And forget the donut bonus. Just go to Krispy Kreme and buy some!

    I would wager anyone with a level 20 cannon likely acquired their donuts through more... *ahem* nefarious means.

    Not really. I can easily buy me to level 20 with purchased donuts

    "Easy" isn't the issue. The amount of donuts required to go from just lvl 15 to 20 is staggering, and it's highly unlikely that a person who paid real money for those donuts would see leveling up the canon as a smart decision.

    I just got the island this morning, and the level 14 cannon with no donuts spent. I might make it to level 16 before the event ends, maybe even 17 if I'm really lucky.

    I've been tapping away fairly diligently throughout the event, like a lot of the other folks here, so I have to assume that EA's intent was for us to get close to 20, but not quite there. They probably guessed that after all that tapping we would be willing to spend real money for bragging rights. I'd say they guessed wrong.

    Should hit Level 16 tomorrow with about 600 elves to shoot. It's taking 2-3 days to level up now so this is probably it for me.

    No. I bought 900 with ITunes vouchers and used them all just to go up a level.

    I'd say at this point, it's pretty much impossible for me to catch up for a level 20 cannon. Not only did I start playing the game a day or two after Christmas (because I had "just" remembered I could play the game on my iphone, after having it for roughly three months), but I had also just entered a new "no contract" plan with my family.

    What does this have to do with the iphone, you might ask?

    Well, I stupidly thought 16gb would be enough of an "upgrade" from the time I had an 8gb ipod touch several years back. But two weeks later, after installing new apps, snapping a bunch of photos and importing "loads" more music than I had originally on the ipod, I ran out of space. Knowing my dad, he'd freak out if I told him I needed more space, as it meant more money, not to mention I am a college student with no income, whose financial aid gave her less than the usual amount. So I said nothing, until a few days short of New Year's Eve, when I was in town. My mom wanted a smartphone, and joked about me lending her mine so she could "practice", being the least technologically advanced compared to the rest of my family. Which gave me an idea.

    As you might be aware, prices drop for older models, and I had purchased my 5s just before the release of the 6. I figured she should get the iphone, as I'm already familiar with the os, so then I took the opportunity to "upgrade" the storage, technically paying the 32 gb for the same price as the 16gb months earlier. This way, I could help my mom with any troubles she might have. The problem is, the carrier no longer carried the 32gb in store and it would take 7 business days to ship. I would be at a convention in another city a couple of hours away for the next several days on the weekend, and after that, back to my college town to look for jobs. So I missed 5 more days.

    And on top that, I had to wait hours to level up and earn money, and reluctantly spending money on donuts just to speed up the mainstream quests so I could finish event quests. Arrgh!

    My only hope is to be able to get at LEAST elf Ralphie in the quest rewards, since is obvious I cannot get to level 20 cannon.

    level 15, don't care anymore, not being negative, just know it's not possible for me. I need 400 more cogs to go to level 16. I just hope when this is all over the canon will still fire. Of course we all know it will pay out cash, but I hope it still fires.

    I just passed Level 15, 600 more to go in two days is impossible so no point in getting past that level. I am pleased that I am not alone in being stuck at this maximum level...

    If anyone did reach level 20 congrats to you, and I hope however way you got there was worth the effort and energy spent :shock:

    I'll probably hit level 16 before the end, but probably won't make 17. I have one friend that has a level 20 canon. He had 22,000 bells on the 2nd day, so it makes me wonder :roll: .

    I have quite a few friends who have the Level 20 cannon (I haven't counted how many, but I do see it a lot while visiting). They must have used donuts to get it, which in my opinion is a waste. My cannon is at Level 14, and I need 51 more cogs to get it to Level 15, which I might be able to manage in 31 hours. But I really don't care at this point. Wasn't the Cannon Control Building supposed to level up too? I remember seeing pictures of it.

    I thought I might have a chance at a L16 cannon but alas it did not happen. I was actually hoping my rate of cogs, which averaged .85 per elf, would actually increase in the final hours. Somehow it actually dropped to .84 so wonder how anyone can get a level 20 cannon without spending donuts? At any rate I would only need to buy 3813 more cogs to finish it. :P Don't think I can quite pull that off in the course of a day. Guess I will have to be satisfied with a Level 15 cannon and I was fairly on top of tapping elves too.

    They should change it from 20 to 15 so most of us can get the golden cannon because it is impossible to get it right now.

    Here's to hoping it's a multiplier. I prefer them over rents anyway, but also it would be nice to tap on the canon to see the animation and not a box popping up showing when the rent comes in.
