    I wonder if it might be related to the Whacking Day quest lines. Ignore for a moment the main whacking day quest line which gives you snakes upon completion of each task. And also ignore the quest lines that require premium purchases, Lugash and Ninja Homer.

    That leaves five quest lines they throw in with not much benefit to complete - Gymnast Lisa, Duff Stadium, Bare-Chested Willie, Drederick Tatum and Miss Springfield. With five bonus level prizes, this matches up.

    Complete one Quest Line for 30 Doughnuts, two for 75 Doughnuts, three for 150 Doughnuts, four for 200 Doughnuts and all five for 250 Doughnuts. Why else would you bother taking Homer off a Snake Hunt for 24 hours to visit Duff Stadium?

    This is all speculation. Could be completely and totally wrong.

    It's all speculation! :wink: But that could make sense. :-)

    This seems like a LOT of speculation based on very little. To the point that come May 10th there's going to be a lot of disappointed players for no reason.

    Well if the people are that disappointed they need to open their eyes to its just a game... not the end of the world... Besides this forum is all based on speculation of future updates but seeing as most of it has been right I truly believe there are more donuts to come at the end!

    This is EA we're talking about. I doubt they'd give out that much free donuts.

    I hope so... this event was a lot of work.

    But still I don't trust those shifty eyes...

    I may be off a bit on the science, McTattie...EA might throw people under 5000snakes a bone. It might be more like this:

    1-4999 snakes gets 30 donuts (so must have at least started Whacking Day)
    5000-9,999 gets 75 donuts
    10,000-14,999 gets 150 donuts
    15,000-19,999 gets 200 donuts
    20,000+ gets 250 donuts
    OMG! If i just hit my goal to get 15.000 snakes...
    I'll be able to get my most wanted item......
    Lard Lad Donuts and/or Duff Brewery :D

    I feel it's necessary to point out that I could just be completely full of baloney, so let's not get our hopes up too high. :wink:

    Lol. I voted for the 'I don't trust that shifty eyed dog' option. :P

    Just by clearing my town of snakes each day Im projected to hit 35,000 snakes by May 9th.

    How is that? If the snakes spawn every 8 minutes, that's a max of 180/day. Unless you have a gabillion (that's a technical term) snake logs and rocks.

    Am I right, or am I missing something?

    I'll be celebrating my sons first bday May 10th!

    The donuts would be nice, especially if that theory were true. I'm on pace for all the whacking boxes. Don't really care for em but I got out so far ahead at the beginning that I figured I might as well continue.

    Agree. The programmer is playing a joke on the people who read the raw files.

    May 10th is my birthday, too! It'd be a nice birthday present! :D

    Yeah, it's fun to speculate, but anything could happen, so we'll have to wait and see, as always.

    5 logs = 150 p/4h
    4 stumps = 80 p/4h
    4 rocks = 40 p/4h

    I'm at 23k rn, get around 1k per day

    So, is this info actually in the files? Because I seriously doubt EA would give us that many donuts! On occasion they give us 12 or so. And that's awesome, but its never enough to buy something decent. I just don't believe it! Having said that, I do hope I'm wrong. :P

    The bit in red in my original post was/is in the raw files. The rest, such as my theory on the conditions for being awarded these bonus donuts, is pure speculation. I may be right, I may be wrong. Who knows, maybe they were intending to award us this many donuts, then decided not to. Maybe this thread will even become a self-fulfilling prophecy? Time will tell.

    We have to remember that this is EA we are talking about. They gave us all 12 donuts and I bet someone at the top is still wondering how to screw us to get that money back.

    It's all about converting non-paying players into paying players. Even 250 donuts isn't that many, really, what is it, a couple of buildings with characters? If they give people a taste of donuts, they're more likely to get addicted, and start to buy more donuts.

    I think the donut give away will be somehow based on how generous you were with your snakes

    Trying to reward those that helped all their friends

    I doubt that they will be o generous. I wonder though why the yellow snake appears twice in row before that message in the files. :roll:

    EA could very well have just put that into the game files to get everybody excited because they know we look at the game files, and then just take it out the day before this is all supposed to happen!
