Did you Rush Brandine or Store her to finish the Saint Patrick's Day quest

    I can't answer this since I'm waiting on the task to see if they provide a fix. If they don't, I'll be speeding her up closer to April 23rd so I can hopefully only spend 10 donuts.

    I'm waiting and hoping against hope for EA to fix this before the *. Patrick's day event ends. If push comes to shove, I will be storing her and saving the donuts.
    Always looking to add active forum members! But please PM me first.

    I have decided to let her continue her pregnancy. The reward of a stack of beer for the * Pat's quest just doesn't merit the cost of either donuts or losing over a month of a 3 month task. I'm still wishfully thinking they come up with a fix, but I doubt it'll happen.
    I've mentioned this elsewhere, but at least in my mind, there is an easy fix on EA's part. Just give everyone the darned stack of beer!!!

    Nope. Didn't store her or pay the 22 donuts. I felt it was unjust that those of us who bought her last month were being forced to pay donuts or cut 1/3 of our completed task off by storing her when everyone else did not to deal with that issue. It was set up unfairly and I decided the options stunk so I did nothing.
    Right now, my Brandine is roaming my Springfield, 30-something days into her pregnancy, and smoking like a chimney. I am just ignoring the lame Saint Patrick's event and will forfeit the beer kegs. Whatever. No biggie.

    I've been holding out to see if EA makes this right somehow. But considering today I got another full 450+MB "update" (in quotes because I've seen no changes at all), I'm losing hope on that front.

    If it becomes clear they have no intention of doing so I will abort her, and be considerably less likely to buy donuts in the future, since it seems as if I've been punished for doing so.

    I stashed her, it's only a lost month, and not like I need her to rush the kids so she can switch to income...

    and now I finished the event, and got no donuts upon doing so... could have had a free Spuckler kid, I guess... rackum frackum EA...

    Stashed her, got the free beer and then got the little Spuckler going again.
    Kinda poetic.

    No, I haven't rushed with donuts - yet. If EA come out with a fix or explanation or any kind of official kind of comment, message, Tweet, post, honestly I don't care how, and I have to rush it, then I will.

    Until then, I'm standing pat.

    After all I helped start all this fuss ;-)

    I picked up Brandine at V-Day. I have been having too much fun sending her on her 24 hour task of shooting terrorists, LOL!

    After this event, I may spend the 90 days for the little bundle of joy :-)

    I stored her. I wanted the beer keg things and didn't want to pay donuts for them. I also don't think it's fair that I would have to spend my newly acquired 20 donuts simply because I just bought brandine. It was the lesser evil, and I think donuts are worth more than time.

    ^-- This :(

    What if they have another Brandine task sometime in the next 90 days? Then you are screwed. They could have people waiting forever to finish this, unless they waste some of their donuts. It is very unfair.

    That wouldn't be a very good move for EA to make. I'm not too bothered this time, but if it were to happen again, I and a lot of people are going to be mad. Like killasqrl said though; I doubt they will.

    There's no time limit on Brandine, so I stored her, and I'd store her again if it came up, unless she was very close to done.

    I rushed her in both of my towns. It wasn't that big a deal ( around $1 each). Plus, you get a Spuckler!

    Im doing nothing. I can live without finishing that quest line.
    And for what? A stack of beer?

    Maybe the quest will still be there in 57 days?

    My Brandine was down to 18 donuts to rush, and I was going to wait until it got closer to April 23rd when it would cost me less donuts. But, I found that I got so annoyed every time I saw that unfinished quest on my task bar, that I decided to buy one golden scratch off ticket every morning for the next three days, figuring I'd win 6 donuts each time, end up with 18 donuts on the 3rd day, then for under $3, I could keep my present donut stash intact and put this whole unpleasant deal behind me. So, I bought my first golden scratch off ticket ever this morning, and... I won 50 donuts!
    Brandine is now taking a moonshine bath.

    Decided not to wait any longer for a fix, and went ahead and stored her. My donuts are too precious to use to speed her up so I figured I would rather lose 1 month pregnancy. Once her task finishes tomorrow I'll go ahead and put her on her 90 day spuckler task:)

    I rushed her. I only had a week left and was not about to store her and start all over.
