  • Sorry but it's still a bait and switch. Even with returning the 75%, having 5 of them is still a completely worthless purchase that I wouldn't have made had I known they were putting an end to farming.

    Even with the bonus back, I'd have to build 140 KEMs a day just to go up a single level and that would only cover the cost of the XP collider for the day. It would take nearly 300 hundred just to get 3 bonuts and that's way, way too much time and effort.

    I want a refund.

    The complaints will stop. 10mil XP is an advanced strategy problem, while the conform-o-meter bonus is easy for anyone to read and take advantage of. EA has won.

    They haven't won. The last two events cost about 2-3 thousand donuts each. Most players are going to be turned off of the game when they see they can't get much of anything anymore. If they need money they can just put advertisements in the game.

    Woah. You mean to say that the whole Beach Hideaway removal bonus was a distraction from the 1mil XP to 10mil XP? And that EA were always going to revert the Hideaway bonus, but always intended to increase the XP needed to get the bonus donut boxes?

    Wow!

    I meant that they have won this time. There was no way they could leave the hideaway bonus changed as it was, but there is a way they could increase the XP and therefore reduce the effectiveness of the bonus by a factor of 10. Both of the items have to do with earning donuts (for me they do) and yet nothing really changed here in terms of that.

    You're right, though, that in the end, their drive to fix beneficial glitches is going to bite them in the a-double-s (****?), driving out hardcore players.

    To be fair, someone thought that thought for me, and I agreed. Sorry to whomever it was for forgetting your name.

    Hi all just wanted to let you know that I inquired and found out that the 10 million bonus was a temp change and that it should be back to 1 million soon. And if you say have like 2 million in xp when it changes back, you should get 2 bonus levels. Hope that helps.

    @johncolombo you have made my day! Let's hope it's soon as not seeing my XP counter move like it used to makes for depressing viewing :(

    I had the same thought but they might just spawn two at a time every 4 hours.

    Or don't they? I'm spitballing.

    @Wiredup11 I've read in another thread on the forum that's it's 2 every two hours, with a maximum of 10 at any given time :D
  • I'm sorry for those the 10m xp effects, hopefully that will get fixed. I am glad they reinstated the %. Congrats to those that also got donuts returned. I went to the BBB and EA have case numbers for each but no donut returns. lol it's put right, that's what matters!!
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
  • I also asked about the 1M xp vs 10M xp and was told it's temporary and will revert back to 1M
    Inflammable means flammable? Ugh, what a country!

    Thank you. That's good news. Now we can start guessing EA' s definition of "soon" .

  • I still hope they patch in the option to deactivate sleep-mode. It's really annoying. At least for me.

    By the way, after the latest patch it is now possible to put Iron and Gargoyle Wall together in a 90° angle.

    This is beautiful news if it actually happens. I have to say that after clearing out the farms and SH buildings I'm not really looking forward to putting them back (but I will) I know they changed the build time and XP earned for krusty burgers from 12 hours amen 2500 XP to 1 hour and 250 XP and I've heard but not tested that KEMs are now paying out only 100 XP. Wonder if that will change back as well, fingers crossed.
  • Should I buy the Springfield Hellamentary then?

    Well I'm going to bed now, so in the morning I'll see if there is more than two fighters.
