    Think about it. The reason why EA is putting up the prices of its premium content is on the basis that it has essentially captured its market. There are a lot of players who have already invested a lot of money to buy all of the previous premium content and EA knows that it is more than likely they will now be willing to pay more in order to make sure that they continue to have the complete set of buildings, characters and decorations. It´s a cynical way of looking at things but it is a good business strategy for EA. I think they will probably give us a few donuts at the end of the season but baring in mind they gave us 12 after halloween, I think that it is most likely it will be around this amount. Don´t get me wrong, it would be great if they adopted your idea. I will keep my fingers crossed that they do and we have a Christmas miracle!

    Oh yeah, they've made a great game and they sure are making some money out of it, especially from people like me that have to have everything! But I think without something along the lines of a Christmas present and especially with the prices of premium items people are just going to say, stuff you EA your taking the pee now!

    Hey guys these are my pics, I posted them back in the "Anyone else tempted to buy donuts?" thread. Yes this is real but Gil is expected to come on the week of Christmas (Specifically December 23 or after). My apologies if anyone was going crazy on how to get him in your Springfield as of now. But if you do know how to get him in your Springfield right now, his "25% off donuts" deal has not been applied yet, since we still have a few more weeks til Christmas week.

    Hi,
    I absolutely love this game, since downloading it in September I have not stopped playing it, I think EA are doing a fantastic job and I do not hesitate in buying donuts as this game has given me hours of fun! But the price of premium content seems to be getting higher and higher and there seems to be more and more content coming out. I think the least that EA can do is give the people who have bought donuts is give us some extra for Christmas, say 10% of the donuts we've bought back on Christmas Day. Not only will this keep people playing but it will also tempt people to buy more donuts in the run up to Christmas and for the people that have bought as many donuts as me and have put a lot of money into the game surely its only fair we get a better present than the people that have hardly bought any... if any!

    Please reply to this if you think its a good idea and lets hope EA see it and take it into consideration.


    Its a good idea, I'm with you, but not holding my breath. The 25% off will be nice, but bitter sweet for us hardcore tappers as we will have already bought the premium content by the time the discount comes out - but if it does come out, I plan on "stocking up" on donuts. I just have to get better at saving them... they are like a drug LOL :shock:

    Maybe this is the update I just got, 39 of 39, 10 AM EST. I haven't noticed anything yet. Has anyone else gotten this update and seen anything?

    When I said it was not going to happen, I was talking about the original post and not the 25% off offer to which you refer.
