as you said, 6 came with the zoo event. 6 also came with the itchy and scratchy land event (3 act prizes, 3 with act rides), 7 with the springfield jobs event (1 with museum, 3 act prizes, 3 craftable), 6 with the bart royale (3 act prizes, 3 with the forts), and 6 with rigellian xmas event (4 act prizes, 2 re-gifting machine mystery box prizes).
have to go back to the last thoh to find a major event that only gave us 3... guessing the recent trend of forcing 3x3 plots upon us was a factor. also guessing i'm not the only one that would rather have more tokens instead............
My town looks untidy round the edges, I have stuff crammed in to spots and randomly located because I’m waiting on land tokens being available to finish my designs
I hate it - I don’t see why we can no longer buy land.
At least, there needs to be another way to earn tokens - this sucks and I’m totally fed up with it
I've just decided that would be my dumping ground for stuff with a bonus that looks like crap (Looking at you SH buildings)..
I normally move my whole town with a new strip now it's not possible anymore so I don't have the energy anymore to wait and create new parts with 1 square at the time
I have been playing the game for many years. I don't recall exactly when I started playing, but it was probably a bit more than a year after the game was initially released. In that time, I have played the game constantly, building up my ability to earn IGC as much as I could so that I could buy all the land. I was using Free Land Tokens on cash land that cost more than a million IGC in order to expand faster. I had eventually expanded my entire town to utilize all the available land before any land was created that could be bought with ONLY Free Land Tokens, so I had used up all my Free Land Tokens because I was convinced there were good for nothing else. I had also spent the time to expand my Krusty Land to use all the available land, so I had earned the maximum allotment in the event when they nuked Krusty Land.
Now, I have 115 plots of land that are not purchasable because they don't let me earn any more tokens! Had I known and saved up my Free Land Tokens that were used on IGC land, that number wouldn't even be down to 100.
Because of this issue, I have been trying to expand in neat groups so that my town doesn't start to look like a huge mess, but I had a problem a couple weeks ago. I was in the process of rearranging my town to better utilize the space I had. Dragging large chunks of items across unpurchased slots of land to condense things a bit better. This was a slow and tedious process, and every now and then the game misinterpreted my dragging as a click on a piece of unpurchased land, and asked if I intended to purchase it with the 1 remaining token I hadn't yet used. I clicked "No" each time and continued rearranging. This went on long enough for the game to crash on me a few times in the middle of a move. After one of these crashes, I noticed I had one randomly positioned piece of open land in my town. It turned out that the crash ending up forcing me to use my last token on a piece of land that I didn't want.
I was furious enough that I contacted EA support to complain about this glitch. I do A LOT of donut farming, and glitches/game crashes often cause me to lose out on dozens of unearned donuts at a time, but I have never once tried to contact them about that.
With how long it takes to earn land tokens now, it is going to take me more than a year to expand my town far enough to cover up that random bump of land, (and I was trying to expand my town in a different direction from that spot before this happened, so it's redirecting all my plans).
EA's customer support just told me that there is nothing they can do but to offer me 20 free donuts as compensation for the glitch. When I pressed the issue, they told me that they might consider doing something more with land tokens if the forums get loud enough about the problem. So that's why I'm here today. Let's continue complaining as much as possible about this lack of ability to buy the land that is there until they do something about it!
Make tokens purchasable with in game cash. Make a task that can earn land tokens. Heck, make them purchasable with donuts! Just don't leave all that land "available" to buy with no way to buy it! COME ON EA! DO SOMETHING!!

Edit: Sorry, I was talking unreleased content. I fixed it!
I like this idea.
Congrats. Thanks for being a consistent contributor. It makes this place worth visiting.
I need all 7 strips, if they don't extend it any further, I will have to extend down and to the right, to at least 20 plots.
Some of it will be 3D which takes up room.
I need over 100 tokens as it is, about 3 years by my reckoning, and was really expecting land token with Thanksgiving.
Not fair EA, that's just not fair.
I just want to be able to choose where my new land is, and to grind IGC to buy it like the olden days
