EA just killed this game with a stake of holly

In the lingo of break-ups, this terrible Christmas event is EAs telling us, “It’s not you. It’s me.”

EA isn’t stupid, or blind. They know full well how much the Christmas event means and that’s why they picked it to tell all of us they’re done investing their time and energy into this game. The party’s over.

I’ll translate:
No event music - “I’m just not that into you.”
No land tolkens- “I need some ‘me’ time.”
Weak donut deals - “We can still be friends.”
Oh, I almost forgot...
Mournful sound of blowing wind - “Don’t call me. I’ll call you.”

  • Whats wrong with it? Im enjoying it, personally.
  • I'm enjoying it plus its better than nothing.

    There are land tokens with certain prizes it just doesn't tell you.
    TOUK is the best also have you considered Nuking. Don't forget about the Springfield Showcase

    I'm not a fan of the mini game event disguised as a major event, but there are going to be some awesome rewards to hopefully make this event worthwhile.

    And, Winter is my favorite season, so I'll swallow my mixed feelings and just enjoy the game like I always do.

    The Sun always rises, the Sun always sets. This event will be over before you know it, and there will be people who are complaining about the event right now that will complain at the end of the event. Because; we are human. If there's one thing we love to do; its to whine and complain to anyone and everyone.

    I'll say that the start of this Christmas event had me a little thrown off with no music and a mini event visual. Hey... Atleast for some they don't have to add tapping NPCs to their list for the event. But getting the nativity scene my first try in the mystery box and playing the story perked it right up. I like the merry go round and chesnut stands. I've rushed and enjoyed act one. Now a great christmas tale will settle on my mind over the week as I gain donuts and see what offers may come. Looking forward to our next christmas story. This is the best wholesome christmas in my opinion. I still really enjoy pagan christmas though with some of the stuff we got.

  • This isn't a 'Christmas Event' that we've enjoyed the last years, this is just a mini game for a few lousy decorations. I'm not impressed, I think I'm going to pass on this one.
  • Just saw a video on youtube about tsto Christmas 2013, and even though the guy can't read, it made me miss that Christmas event sooo much. All the colorful gifts bouncing around and the little boing sound they made.
    "Not my Shmoo!"
  • I think it's great event. It's different. Exactly what we are asking for.
  • Is this the first day of the event?
    Are you whining about it already?
    Don't play then. Get lost.


    When are we getting a mute function for people like this?

    There is an ignore function in your profile
  • Agree, we need a mute button. This event is fine so far. Not many donuts need to rush, so that's a plus!
  • If you think this event is bad, you clearly never played the "Event that Shall Not be Named".

    I'm sure those who lived through that event, and played it, can vouch for me.

    I forgot about dropping presents into other towns oceans or behind a building. :D Good times indeed. Didn't they use that mechanic 2 different years?

    Hahaha how ironic. I was just thinking the same thing about you.

    Yes, you’re right that it’s different, but if EA was shooting for different, I think they went too far in the other direction.
  • Why is there so much content on the new download. Over 500 mb. It went from 1593 to 2131. I’ve already had issues everytime I download another ap and have had to free space, but now I’ve freed up as much as I can off of my phone but have had a reset on the game with a new download 5 times today. It’s so frustrating, I’ve been playing since August of 2012. I can’t afford to buy a new phone with more storage right now just because they upped the usage that much.

    They had to add snow to every single item in the game

    Buy an SD Card and export the game onto there. Granted, every time you would power down your phone, you would need to safely eject the card and mount it so when you plugged the card in the next day the data on the card wouldn't corrupt and force you to redownload the game again. Outside for the occasional phone restart, any powering down of your phone without safely ejecting the SD Card risks data corruption.

    It's taxing and it can be tedious to remember to eject the SD Card, and mount it. But, it should open up a good amount of space, almost 1 and half Gigabytes of data onto your phone.

    Amen! Broken baskets and I never found the faberge egg in my town!
  • The event has only just started,so I’ll reserve my judgement for now.
    It is always hard to please all the players all of the time & I don’t mind having a different type of event, rather than following the same formula of the past ie tapx,collect x,make x,rinse & repeat.
    Let’s give it some time & see how the 4 mini events develop,we may get a pleasant surprise.
