    It’s been mentioned a few dozen times.

    Everyone is. We've been talking about it for months. Even with the max obtainable from KL, i still need about 100 tokens. They'll be giving them to us one at a time for the rest of the year probably.

  • Never heard of it. What are these ‘land tokens’ you speak of?
  • I am very disappointed with EA and how they have handled the land ‘tokens’. What’s the point in playing the game if you only get 6 land tokens every event and there’s so much content to buy and receive that you don’t get enough space to put said content. I want a way to buy land. Or earn land like donuts. You can mine donuts through the monorail, why can’t we do something similar to earn land. Like send Cletus on a 24 hour task to ‘till the land’ which warrants 1 block of land and XP at the end? There needs to be a solution or EA is going to lose a lot of players over this one problem.
  • My town is starting to look like someone who moved out of a large house into a storage shed.

    Just stacks of buildings crammed together because I have no where to put them :s

    You are not the first user to register this complaint, nor are you likely to be the last. Sadly, however, the current land token system is unlikely to change.

    It’s a strange move as it makes no financial sense.

    You can’t buy the land tokens, you can’t get them with donuts, so you are stuck with land you can’t expand into. I got over 100 tokens when nuking Krustyland but still about 200 away from doing everything.

    I would understand more if they changed them to unlock by donuts only, at least that would follow the premium theme. But this land token is crazy.

    That’s because the new system is probably not motivated by financial considerations, but instead by concerns about game stability.

  • I talked to EA today, and as most know when you explode Krustyland you get the amount of land you had in Krustyland, but in land tokens for Springfield. I did not know this however till after I exploded my Krustyland, and only got a handful of land tokens, not 100. They said there was nothing they could do which is really frustrating. I have no space left in my Springfield. I don’t know why they made it so we can’t expand. Makes me want to stop playing as I can’t really go any further with my town. I don’t even have enough land for the new log ride this week.
  • If it’s only about game stability, make the squares from now on (the 7rows on the north; and 2 rows on the east) only available by donuts. That way if you need the land, you buy donuts to get it (ie. its financial, so people by buying donuts are actually buying into new servers for the game to expand). But restricting the land, it just upsets their long fan base for the game.

    There were quite a few posts about this early on in the event. I think most users agree that EA could have handled this better, viz., forewarning users about the connection between the size of one’s KL and the number of land tokens parsed out.

    The underlying intent of the new system is to purposely slow down land acquisition. In that context, allowing the purchase of land with donuts wouldn’t make sense. More servers wouldn’t solve the potential stability problem.

  • The game can’t keep expanding its town footprint. I’ve got some neighbours whose use of space seems pretty extravagant to me. I’ve been playing since the game was a year old and I haven’t used all my IGC tiles yet.

    I’d have even more room if I didn’t have to keep out the SH buildings and however many billboards and news vans. I know it’d suck if I started out designing thinking I’d always have available land to expand into, but tailoring the town design to suit the constraints isn’t that hard.
  • I dunno. I have been playing for 4 years now, and have had a pretty tight SF, not an abundance of wasted space. If anyone wants to add me and give me suggestions acornthw859, I’m up for it. But I have a very tightly manicured town and would have loved the ability to get 100 free tiles from Krustyland and not just 20. Just saying EA, that’s not really fair.

    So the people who worked their butts off opening up KL should get the same amount as someone who never bothered with it? Thats supposed to be "fair"?

    Honestly, there probably isn't a "fair" way to do it, but I think what they did was reasonable. You got exactly what you had. Seems pretty "fair" to me
    I do not accept unsolicited friend requests! PM me and say hi first.
  • Well I think they should have said, he guys Krustyland is going to be gone. For every square of land you have, you will get a land token in SF. People would have got on it and bought land. To not tell anyone that this was the case until it’s too late is yes, not fair. I didn’t completely open up KL because I got all the items and didn’t need to bother. But if I had known we would get free land, of course I would have opened it up. I’m just saying if I had been given the choice to buy land I would have bought it, but I was NOT given the choice to know I needed to do this to get free land tokens.

    My story is similar to yours except I managed to get the 100 tiles. I was desperate for more land also. I almost stored some of my painstakingly designed areas in order to free up some land. Luckily for me, I read this forum regularly and was tipped off about needing to acquire all of the KL land squares before nuking. I wouldn't have got anywhere near 100 otherwise.
    I really feel for ya. I would feel the same way. They really should have warned people. I can picture them having a good laugh over it while knowing full well how desperate we are for land with the recent miserly distribution of land tokens.

    Definitely not victim blaming those unfortunate enough to have been short-changed on land tokens as a result of the nuking process, but I wanted to emphasize something that @mystery2mi mentioned and that is the utility of following the forum posts on various aspects of the game. I would imagine that just about every regular member can point to one or more important tidbits about the game that we picked up here.

    Those who had a complete KL were rewarded.
    Those who neglected their KL were not.
    Those who read the forum before making big changes were spared.

    Land tokens return control of the rate of expansion, to EA. Growth is limited, it always has been.

    I hate it, but i understand why. It is what it is. Keep calm and tap on.

    it's funny you claim the bolded, even though you yourself sought clarification on another site... and received explicit instructions on what to do, directly from someone who signed the nda, despite lpa saying that was "really the only thing we couldn't absolutely reveal".
    if you hard. then you hard.
