Nope. We all get to pay if we want them.
So far sharri and the blocko store aren't priced that bad

    Blocko and Banana Dictatorship are downright reasonable. Johnny Fiestas is in-game cash!

    I bought Shari Bobbins and Hugs Bunny, but they are on the high end for single-characters.

    If the event stopped working properly for you, you should have contacted EA about it at the time. Even if they couldn't have fixed it, they probably would have thrown some donuts at you. I guess you can still try contacting them now. If you explain what exactly went wrong in a lot of detail, they may compensate you a little bit.

    That sounds pretty cavalier considering the incredible number of tappers who speak of the 2014 Easter event with nothing less than vitriol in their comments. Considering how many comments I have read about people spending up to 1000 donuts and still not getting all the prizes, something was way out of whack.

    EA would have mended considerable fences had they made Shary Bobbins (probably the most desired character) available at a discounted rate and Father Sean isn't even available!

    Father Sean came up with the garage sale last year. That was a couple weeks after I started playing and I got him then. I would assume those who played the miserable Easter event last year and wanted, but didn't get him then, could have also made the purchase. I can only assume that is the reason EA didn't make him available this go round, that is, the fact that he was already made available for donuts. These seem to be all of the other highly desired but unattainable items from that event.

    Good point on Father Sean during the garage sale; not sure that salves the wounds however.

    The OP made it sound as if there was something specifically wrong with their game, since they stopped being able to collect baskets. Unless that's how it worked for everyone, I wouldn't know.

    That's how it worked for everyone. We all went without baskets until we could find that consarned Faberg? egg. It was programmed that way. (One of the myriad sins of the Macbeth event.) Some people didn't notice because they found the egg within minutes or hours. Some people went a week or longer. We literally formed a support group in an attempt to save our sanity and our fragile tablets.

    The baskets were quite buggy eggs disapeared out of them and didn't the become uncollectable for some people even when full.

    Most of the time they stayed empty as nobody really had spare eggs any way.

    As johnny fiestas is in game cash I don't see why blocko store shouldn't be people won one or the other based on their egg prevalence.

    Punctuation would have helped with the comprehension of this sentence...I had to read it four times! :oops:

    Makes sense though. Even more so with a semicolon.

    Last year's Easter event was horrible and given the recent fairer treatment we have been getting from EA I was expecting they would have made last year's prizes cash not donut priced. With a month of hourly grinding and staying up late nightly I only got two of the prizes. I was furious and every time discussion of that event comes up it renews that feeling about it.

    Exactly my wife's experience. Absolutely refuses to spend donuts on any of them.

    That said, things have improved much or she wouldn't still be playing.
