    I said it on another thread .....it wasn't clear that there was a limited time for crafting, maybe that was unfair as during the Halloween event it was possible to craft wailing walls throughout all acts of the event so I can understand the confusion :-)

If they wanted to change how they do crafting and make each set of items only available for one act they could of course do so, but I don't understand why they would make a conscious decision to make that change without notifying us in any way through the in game menus.

    Agreed. And there are a couple of dozen people who said the same in the players-helping-players ea forum, and it looks like a couple hundred venting over on one of the popular TSTO fan sites. This appears to have been poorly communicated (or poorly thought out).

    I know that not being able to craft a few dozen light poles with the red ribbon isn't the end of the world...but you guys screwed up my plans for the town dang it...

    It's not a bug, it's a nasty feature... :cry:

    Is that your opinion or have you (or anyone else) actually contacted EA about this issue? I could see them making a change if enough of us made a stink about it.

    Same here guys, I always. Raft at the end in case a quest line triggers placement or I want to manage what I can afford to craft

    I agree with most everyone on this thread. I think that it would be very nasty for EA to not let us craft Act 1 items. Nowhere was it written that it was going to end right after Act 1. Most other events, such as the Halloween event we had till the end of the event to craft (which might I add is when I craft all my items). Please EA, do not chose the Grinch path of the force this Christmas Season...

    I agree, as I was doing the same, wait until the end and craft what I wanted the best, especially the crafting currency are getting more and more difficult to get enough!

    Its utterly unfair that we were not informed those were limited time only!

    Has anyone gotten anywhere with this? It's pretty mean that EA pulled this.

    yeah I wanted to craft a few things but didn't do them because they usually end up wanting you to craft said item during a weekly challenge so I was holding out, now there new act started and I can't craft those items I wanted to craft :x

    come on EA get your * together, its bad enough I might lose 20 free donuts this week cause I already crafted the stupid irregular Christmas tree stand & its not being counted towards my weekly challenge for today monday :x

    I still hope that they will return at the end of Act 3 again.

    Same here. I just posted about another issue I am having getting the game reinstalled (I've bought 3 new tablets and all 3 say Incompatible!). Plus this craftable item.. and now today's issue with the "X-mas trees slightly irregular"...

    Three strikes EA! I'm expecting a Store full of donuts to make up for what you've put me though the past two days. That won't make up for the gas I used driving to and from electronic stores, and expense in buying multiple tablets, but it will at least make it seem EA cares.


    * Now with the carrot part of the "carrot and stick". The last 2 gentlemen I spoke with today from EA's support were A+. They weren't able to resolve the issue as at least 2 of them are known bugs, but they both tried everything they could to help me with the issues I'm facing. Sadly the 5 other agents I spoke to before these last 2 wouldn't know ... well we all know how that phrase ends

    Bump this for DAYS.

    Every event in recent memory has only ever ADDED craftables; they've never replaced or removed them! Like most everyone else on here, I planned ahead, accordingly, and was saving up my currency until the END of the event, to make sure I could get the stuff I wanted most.

    It might seem like a small thing to complain about, but there was ZERO indication that everything from Act 1 would be removed, especially considering the game's track record for craftables. Even the smallest stuff (like the full set of Simpson's family snowmen) is now impossible to complete, which is almost more annoying than losing the big stuff, because I already KNOW I would've been able to buy them all if we had simply been WARNED that it was gonna disappear! -_-
