Ticket Time?!

Replies

  • Edit: forgot I can't say s.u.c.k.s :p

    I wanted to say that too. What if you want to say Maggie sucks her pacifier? What just happened?

    Anyhoo, I didn't exit my game, came back an hour or so later and I had no tickets (I was counting down when I left it though) AND it said 0s so it wasn't even working on it. Exited and now it's starting again but still with no tickets. :(

    It just got worse. The timer reset when I closed the game. Was down to 10 minutes, logged out and came back, timer was at 20 with no tickets available.

    Yeah I discovered I have to leave the game running in the background or the timer resets.

    Arrgggh. I have to keep the game open and on my screen or the timer resets. I can't just leave it running in the background.
    Still a cool event though.

    wait what? for the tickets you need to keep the game open???

    Indeed, for me at least. Timer resets if the game closes.

    It resets for me, too. This is obviously a mistake on their end. I feel a revolution coming. Grrrr. ;)
  • This extra timing started immediately after receiving the third prize the free land ticket, just now.

    Yes, you can't say **** but you can say buttplug.

    LMBO! Good to know!

    You mean LMBPO, don't you? ;)
    This needs to be our thing here. LMBPO. hehehe.

  • So........ the recipe for maximum pins is now changed to.......

    Free up all characters in the hour before a new flight mission starts. ( this way you'll see your most complete airport screen list of all possible characters who can be sent on flights each time. Then....

    Send the correct answer character and two others,.......

    Wait for more plane tickets.......

    Maybe manually task everyone else who isnt waiting for a plane ticket.... or....

    If you want to use the job setter, First maybe store the characters who are waiting for a flight.... then auto-task the rest, then bring the airport people out of storage...

    Yeah...... not worth the effort entirely

    And stay in the game forever. Never leave it. Never leave your home. Quit your job. Dump your significant other. Maybe this was their plan all along.

    Not me EA. You can't have me. I choose to live. If the timer continues to reset when I leave then I will leave you EA. I will just send the 3 and not care if I get all the prizes. Na na na na, hey hey hey...Goodbye ;)
  • I'm thinking that storing the building-less characters might be a good tact.

    You only need to keep free the 5 characters you want to go on a trip. I'm pretty sure you don't need to worry that they "match" because the system will pick them because they're free. Then release the roaming characters to get a few more trips in.

    I'll have to test and verify.

    It should be coded so that the ticket wait time is 20 minutes IF you still haven't sent the right person to solve the 'puzzle', otherwise it's the standard 2 minutes. Or are there loopholes in this as well?

    It should be? Like you want it to be or you read it to be?

    I had sent the right person just now and yet I was still waiting 20 minutes for a new ticket.

    Yeah, mine said "you found the right person" and no its a 20 minute wait? What? I think I missed something, I didn't know we were looking for something

  • If EA changed the time, the least they could do is bump the "stored" tickets from 3 > 5!! :rage:
    It's not fair that now you have to wait 40mins to send off the 5 choices they give you from the outset. Changing the stored tickets would let that happen properly, but still keep the hindrance for anyone who wants to send more than the initial 5.

    Honestly, it's like there's no logic to their actions sometimes. They just tweak something & hope for the best!! :rage:
  • Interesting, I just did the airport run an hour ago and I still had 2 minutes in my game. That was at 5 PM EST. sent all 5. Will check again later tonight.

  • I think this is a temporary response to a glitch i saw on Reddit.

    People there were saying if you send 4 outta the 5 characters on the plane trip they would then task the last one waiting with one of there normal money tasks and that would cause 4 more people to pop up to be sent by airplane. They were reporting having 60 flights out at once.

    I didnt try this or havent seen it personally but lots of different people were reporting this as an option to do on reddit. Albeit very tedious at 2mins it was doable so im assuming EA bumped it up to 20 mins till they patch that loop.

    Just my speculation
  • Came home tonight and after getting the third daily prize suitcase thing the ticket recharge time goes to zero and generates no more tickets.

    No, this happened to me. Just exit the game. Close it all down and then go back. I had no tickets but the timer reset and started again.
  • There was an update today. I was wondering what it was. This must have been it. I don't have the free land yet, I just got Maurice, so that's not what sets off the 20 minute timer. Mine started late this morning after the update!

    Agreed that's fantastic
  • I havent even got the donkey yet and I have kumiko which was useless for only one trip. Takes twenty minutes to generate a ticket.

    This being a temporary response seems plausible to me, too. Kind of blunt approach while they get the scalpel solution ready.

    But I bet the resetting timer was an oopsie that's going to cause some headaches.
  • The same thing has happened to me. I have to keep the game open otherwise I don't get tickets. I haven't got any all day because of this.
  • I won't be in game for 20 minutes, no way.
