    Although I rushed a bit at the beginning, I had quite a bit on the first day and have yet to see any caps. I noticed someone posted a photo of the board with the 3 tasks, and that each one was complete. Mine are never complete. I can continue for as long as I want. I may be confused, but I seem to have a bunch of blueprints without too much effort.

    Affirmative. Donuts stop after part three.

    Oh, this is just getting worse and worse...

    But thanks for verifying...

    Lame, yay 6 donuts, woohoo

    Would sting less if we were able to earn donuts after completing the prize track like the previous events. But from what I understand, the only bonus we get is more track

    Even when properly explained (Thanks again LPN) it is still too confusing. It is as if EA's staff has been watching True Detective season two.

    The way I see it, the cumulative cap cuts both ways. If you start the event late or need to skip a day, you can makeup those event currencies on a later on in the event. Conversely, if you know you have a busy day coming up, you can possibly overflow the previous day so you don't need to grind so much the next. For me, Fall Semester is starting Monday and with my work schedule Grinding will be at a premium. So, on Tuesday, I'll want to try and overflow and fill up on resources in preparation for being able to get 9,000 per day on Wed, Thurs, Fri. and Saturday.

    Concur.

    Feels like someone went to lengths to stretch as little content into as long of a haul as they possibly could. Rarely has the game felt so forced as it has with this.

    Are people happy to keep this chart here? Or do people want to see a copy of it on the Q&A thread too? To keep all of the information together?

    I think this is a combination of trying to slow people down...and trying to get them to spend donuts out of desperation.

    Typical EA... making it EAsy to spend donuts.

    I have been following all the back and forth about the blueprint cap, or glitch, or whatever, and I am still not sure we have it down right...

    If I understand what has been hashed out to this point, we are being capped at a cumulative number of blueprints. This cap increases every day by 4500 (and later 9000). So I should be able to hand in projects until I reach the cap for the day, which I believe is 21000, but I have been capped at 17586.

    Can anyone explain why I would be capped at that number? Just before I was capped, I handed in a ~2000 BP project, I have not received a daily bonus of 5000 yet, and I have not rushed anything with donuts.

    It is a running cume.... including any Overage you may have had the day before. So...if you did what I did, which was Two of the BIG ones (2K+) and a substantial one (1K+) in this order... 2K..1K (got my daily bonus for two completed...but stayed under the 4500 cap), then another 2k+ to finish out...it is going to penalize me tomorrow the difference. So...tomorrow, my cap is going to be 4,500 LESS the overage I had today.

    The key to keeping your sanity, is going to keep hitting as close to the 4500...just over...or barely under...and you will be good the next day. I know. Complicated. But, it is the only thing that makes sense for the huge range of numbers that are being reported as "cut off" limits.

    Do we know if the daily bonus that we get from completing a set amount of projects counts towards the limit, It doesn't seem to in my game but it would explain some figures others are reporting

    I've been wondering about this as well...

    It does not. Nor do any of the other BP you earn outside of the project totals.
