    Is anyone else worried that this will effect our game later when we have to craft this for our daily task? (sorry for spoiler, but I think it's important)

    Do NOT craft this early. It is part of the challenge for Week 2! If you have crafted this - it doesn't count and you cannot craft another one!! SO no BO-NUTS for me!! Unless EA do a patch so those of us who have crafted it already get credited for doing it......

    So many mixed messages from EA. They want us to craft quickly before they yank the prizes, but not too quickly or it screws up the challenges.

    Surely it works like a level quest, if you already have the building or decoration, it auto completes the task. They shouldn't have released it until the day the task hits if they are going to penalise people for crafting it ASAP, especially since a majority are unaware of the upcoming task.

    I think they will have an update pretty quick for this, but just in case they don't, I called a couple friends to go find the OP

    This.

    Even if 4tee3 hadn't suggested it most of us would have crafted the "Slightly Irregular Tree" because it was a cheap craft item. The way EA replaced Act 1 crafting items without leaving the items throughout the whole event like normal, people are trying to get what they want fast...before they're gone

    you
    A quick check on the forum suggests this is a widespread problem

    Naveen
    Please let me know your issue, I will do my best to address your concern.

    you
    I am unable to complete the first daily challenge for this week.

    you
    I had already crafted the xmas tree lot

    you
    And given that it is a unique item I cannot craft another.

    you
    In previous cases like this the challenge has just autocompleted

    Naveen

    ea are working on a fix?

    Is that like my ea scrabble game that I havent been able to play for over a month and which they have released a new update and I still cant play?

    Apparently they are treating my issue with scrabble as a priority!

    Dont hold your breath. Whilst the colour blue can be calming ....

    Is it a unique item? We have to craft one as part of next week's weekly challenge, so don't want to jump too soon if it's unique and won't be credited then.

    This.

    Do we craft now and risk losing 20 donuts next week if there is a glitch and we are not credited with having already crafted it?

    Which is exactly what has happened to my wife. She crafted it previously and now it's part of a weekly challenge.

    Thank you for publishing this, I tried to connect that live chat for hours with no result.

    I crafted xmas tree stuff immediately, it was logical as it produces an event currency, so don't worry I am sure lots of people have done this without your recommendation.

    I think it is 100% a bug and the patch from EA is the only way to solve it. The main question is will they be able to release it before weekly challenge end and in case they are not will they then compensate those 20 donuts. That's it.

    Well we still have like 6 days before it expires, so EA might have a fix but not immediately.

    I don't believe you need to complete WC Day 1 in order to start WC Day 2, so just do 2, 3, 4 and 5 and by then they'll probably have a fix that allows the already crafted tree to count and you get your donuts.

    Besides, I am glad I crafed it early. I have gotten almost 1500 mistletoe from it and am almost to 10K so I can wait a few more days for the challenge.
