I just got off chat from EA. Here is the message:

Harsh Willy I understand that Beach hideaway XP multiplier was removed/changed after installing Treehouse of Horror. We received an update from studio and they has decided to revert this change.

OK Thanks

Harsh The Beach Hideaway bonus will go back to what it was before the THOH update with a patch scheduled to go out today.

Harsh All you need to do is update the game that is/will be available soon.
Harsh It will change back to the same as it was.


Edit I just got update and its back

    Interesting but I don't believe it till I see it.

    Edit: And if there really is a patch I really hope that they will also patch the problem with the timer for the monsters.
  • Guess we'll have to wait and see. Wouldn't be the first time they tried to blow someone off by telling them 'the patch is coming out today'. Not like it really means much now that they've changed the XP requirement for leveling up. I'm more concerned about the timer issue.
  • That would be wonderful if true. I guess everyone keep their eye out for a much need patch.
  • I never believe what chat reps say about what's coming.

    IF it's true, though, I'm betting that it's solely a response to the high volume of complaints, and not because the change was unintentional.
  • Reps are usually useless. This could just be a way to get rid of you do they can move on and fill their quota.
    But it does seem unlike EA to do this. In the past, when they balls things up (like spooky walls or tennis courts) they've stopped it, but not taken anything away.
  • Chat reps say whatever to get you off the chat - I hope its true, but time will tell
    PM me- I DO need Good Neighboreenos currently
  • I got one saying it's not returning but I'll get 40 donuts for my trouble
  • Well I sure hope it returns...because I'll have snagged 5 of them for 50 donuts! ;)
  • I just put all the pieces away. <sigh> We'll have to see what happens. They sure do take up a lot of space and it took a long time to get them in as small as space as possible. (I've been a programmer since 1968, and it seems to me that it would be dirt easy to revert this change.)
  • It would be interesting if this is true because of the people that have already recieved a refund. The rep I spoke with (10 minutes ago) didn't mention this, but I think it would be great for people who haven't had a chance to complain yet or had an unsuccessful attempt at a refund.

  • same here, hope it's true

  • Another thread claims they were told the reduction was permanent....

    EA really need to get their **** together.
  • Well I have received no donut return and 40-50 is ridiculous. Reasonable would be, I spent 160. Minus the first one as a "you might have bought it anyway" that leaves 120. They already have my money! They aren't returning cash people!
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
  • I find it hard to believe they'll just bring it back. I expect a possible donut handout or something like that, but nothing close to what we paid for them.
  • If the original bonus truly was a glitch. The right thing to do would be to remove the beach hideaway from the store, restore the multipliers to those that bought during the glitch, then reintroduce a slightly modified version without the multipliers. That's the precedent they set with the tennis courts and most people feel it was fair.
  • My rep also said that they would restore the % multiplier.... She also gave me 200 donuts so I trust her lol
