What DON’T you like about Christmas 2018? Only complaining please....

  • I am not happy with the fact that all the premium characters that come with a decoration have no bonus percent, plus they are all 175 donuts, what gives EA? I would have purchased them had they been 150 sprinkles or had a percentage attached, way to drop the ball EA.
  • The fact that decorations that should have an XP boost (Ice Fishing Shack, Aircraft Carrier, Sculpture Garden) do not.

    I mean, I'm not asking for something like 5%, but maybe 1.5%, 3%, and 2.25/2.5% for each respectively.

    Oh Dang! I did not even realize!
  • This is certainly the most boring Christmas event since I started playing in 2014. I miss having certain buildings specified to tap in neighboring towns instead of looking for event characters...but alas we have none of this. Maybe burning Birch Barlow at the stake would be a fun Christmas task. Anything but these 4 boring stories. This is the saddest event ever.

    Could not agree more. The missing music makes this such a spiritless event.
  • Being forgetful helps. I've already forgotten the old event format.

    And why do Survivor and Dancing with the Stars have to air twice a year but it seems like forever since the last episode of Killing Eve or The Orville?! The constant presence of British talent judges is an insult to everyone, even those who choose not to impersonate Elvis. It's as if they're trying to take that choice away from us.
  • One word : BORING

    Bart's story was dull. I only got the carolers.
  • Hardly any of the buildings fit in with Springfield - in fact most of them don't even fit in with the idea of a Christmas theme-park. Bethlehem Inn? You kidding me? It only shows how low EA is running on ideas, while also how much they intend to keep it going. Also raising prices at the same time.

    And 6 flaming Christmas trees? Oh, I remember when the Simpson Christmas tree went up in flames... FOR THREE SECONDS. INDOORS. ONE TREE.

    This is my first Tapped Out Christmas and even I class this as mediocre in comparison to no Christmas at all.
  • So incredibly boring - worst event ever, by far.
  • There's so little to do that I've resorted to sending my characters on task manually :D

    I'm a little baffled at the people who keep saying that there's *so much* stuff this event. Compared to what?
    This xmas we're getting four free characters. Last xmas we got four free characters and four free skins.
    This xmas we get 20 prizes. Last year we had 17 prizes (or 21 if you count the land tokens) from two acts and the re-gifting machine as well as 17 different craftables. Maybe there's just more premium stuff?

    Yes, I had to rethink a few designs since I'm running low on space and themes lol
  • My complaint is all of the above but also on my “‘Twas the Pageant before Christmas Pt. 3 is stuck on the Angel Lisa character, which I haven’t earned but on Make Homer Ride the Carousel and collect 300 programs, they both say done, but it doesn’t let me progress to my next reward. Anyone else experience the same thing?

    @Helen0725 What about the rest? (scroll up/down)
    Task: Make Lisa Ride the Carousel (8h, Christmas Carousel)
    If the user Ralph: Task: Make Ralph Ride the Carousel (8h, Christmas Carousel)
    Task: Make Milhouse Ride the Carousel (8h, Christmas Carousel)
    Task: Make Homer Ride the Carousel (8h, Christmas Carousel)
    Task: Collect Programs [x300]
    Mr. Papadapaconstantikasgianopolopodopotopolis was my father. You can call me Spiro.
  • I'm unimpressed that I was automatically given 6 flaming Christmas trees. Just one would have sufficed, and if I wanted more I could have bought them. What am I supposed to do with SIX flaming christmas trees?
  • If you pretend the flames are partridges in your pear tree, it works out fine. Because when you sing all the verses of the song , you do get 12 of those pear trees.
  • BORING!! No friend interaction is the kicker for me. Nothing to search for in our town. I was hoping the event would get better as it unfolds, but it hasn't. EA didn't put any effort into this event at all.

    Yes, I had to make them do everything again, even though it was showing done on the task list. Not sure why they didn't set the unfinished tasks to appear at the top of the list so you could see them either.

    They really just didn't try very hard this go-round.
  • I'm not happy, because I haven't been able to get into the game for 4 days. I haven't been able to play much since Halloween, and not much since the Krustyland event.
  • And apparently EA doesn’t like that so many people are calling them out for a below average Christmas event, so it’s empty Christmas stockings for everyone. No little perks, or some fun trinket. Nope. According to EA we’ve all been bad. Lol.
