How Many Whales Do You Own?

Prev1
I remember when "TSTO" introduced the 300-donut Whale in 2014, most people viewed it as a joke (at best) or a big "****" (at worst) from EA.

Who would ever spend 300 precious donuts on a silly decoration?

Then came the days of free donuts - and little on which to spend them.

6 years ago, I figured I'd never own 1 Whale.

In April 2020, I have 83 Whales. I sporadically buy them just to burn off donuts.

What's your Whale count?

  • Pictures or it didn't happen :p
    Whoa, whoa, whoa – I only accept cash, bitcoin, or GameStop stock.
  • Think that I own 4 or 5 of them, never thought of purchasing more than that.

    ehm, zero 🙃
  • 1 regular whale, 1 with three eyes. Never paid full price for them, pretty sure they were both reduced price for whatever reason. Why have more?
  • I also buy them sporadically to use up some donuts. I have 29 and 1 three-eyed whale.
  • I recently put 175 torches (won at the dig site) into storage and purchased 5 whales from the vault in order to reduce item count and keep the bonus (35%).

    I'm too lazy to take pics - you'll just have to trust me! :)

    Is it actually outrageous to believe, though? I earn like 200 free donuts a day and the game gives me hardly anything new to buy with them.

    And that seems unlikely to change. There's a handful of limited-time premium items I don't have, but EA seems unwilling to re-release those - and they wouldn't use that many donuts anyway.

    I'd rather use the donuts on these stupid Whales than have them sit dormant forever!

    I have no %age boosting items in storage. I think my %age is around 4900% now - uselessly high!
  • Only 2 normal whales and 1 3-eyed whale.

    How many items does the game count whales as?

    I didn't count mine but my ocean is full of them. I need to keep some of them so that I could place other sea items

    Edit Ok I just counted. I got 220 whales, excluding five more in storage

    This portrait was taken 30 Jan 2019. All whales were acquired long before this date. The whale is the best for maintaining high % and keeping items count low. :)

    Lately It Occurs To Me... What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been.
  • I remember when I could finally buy my first whale. I felt like a TSTO baller; I’d finally made it! Lol
  • How do you earn 200 donuts a day? Just curious; recently returned to the game and would love to earn more......

    What's this about free donuts. The only means I know of to obtain donuts, apart from paying real world money for them, produce a small trickle of donuts over time. Even if you purchase both the Lard Lad Donut Factory & Costmo (with real world money), that's only 12🍩 a day, which means that it would take 25 days to purchase a 300🍩 whale. It would take even longer by recycling (especially if, like me, you often wait more than an hour between game check-ins.)

    One. And when I have a day to waste, I am going to collect 25,000 donuts and put every single, ugly multiplyer in storage.
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.

    Here's a quick video of me KEM farming from last year. I make even more donuts per round now.
