Anyone else see what EA is doing? Now I'm getting angry.

    I'm not worried.

    There are enough folks out there with spreadsheets, psychological profiles of their neighbors, and eleventy feeder towns to carry the community. Don't forget about the folks who want to be the founding members of the 100k gift card club! I'm already working on my super-sweet "participant" badge. We all know they're out there, right now, culling their lazy neighbors who STILL haven't started the weeks-long event 24 hours in. Did they drop dead or something? Get detained in North Korea?

    Even if the community prizes are intentionally out of reach, so what? EA won't be *forcing* anyone to spend donuts, same as ever. You always have to choose to spend donuts. Just relax and tap happy! I know, it's a strange idea.

    Ooh Ooh! I want a participation badge too! :)
    Seriously I do. I didn't qualify for the 50K or the 30K badges at Halloween. So if you make one... :D

    PS I like the eleventy feeder town comment. Good thing I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.

    It's day 2 people. stop jumping to conclusions that everything sucks. Complaining that the wheel is unfair, " what if I don't get mr plow homer" who gives a *! Is it really going to keep you up at night wondering what could have been. or "there is no way that we'll get the community prizes " oh noes my power plant does look like a god damn candy cane Christmas is ruined. It's just a game, if you don't get all the holiday stuff so what. Its not the end of the world. Most of the Christmas crap won't even be in your town after Christmas anyways.

    As for the community prizes the only good one is the "yes Guy " anyways

    ot: i would like to hear your opinion on the spinning wheel

    You have to ask? This will approximate his response:

    "It's a horrible cash grab! It doesn't give us everything right away for zero donuts! Companies are not allowed to make a profit! I'm too cheap to pay for stuff I want so instead it should be handed directly to me! What EA charges for should match what I am willing to pay for! How dare you say I don't have the right to play this game! You contest my stance? Do I have to remind you that my name appeared in the game this one time so that makes me immune to everything! EA loves me or they wouldn't have done that!"

    That's the general idea, anyway.

    Every time Josh posts, you should re-post that right after him.

    By fixing it EA will ensure everyone gets these prizes. Why? Because if they pi$$ people off they risk losing paying customers.

    My view is I'm not too bothered as if by some accident of poor project management all the prizes aren't delivered no one has them so who cares.

    In 100% honesty there's very little in the Community prize lineup that thrills me. I'd be happy to have any of them, but I wouldn't exactly mourn any of the ones we don't. So for me it's strictly "meh".

    This! I'm much more interested in the personal prizes.

    Way too many people get sucked into Josh's rants. Haven't you learned by now that he's winding you all up. Getting all hot and bothered insulting him and countering his rants with equally long rants. Seriously he's having the last laugh.

    You're completely contradicting yourself there Josh. First you're saying its a fake counter and they are just giving us the prizes whatever happens. And by the end of the post your going on about how they are rigging it so it doesn't give us the prize at all costs. Does that not make sense or doesn't it make not so no sense?

    Improvements? No you want stuff to complain about. Updates ARE improvements and you just want something to complain about and get attention. The majority of olayers love the update, yet you hate every update EA puts out? What gives you the right to complain using data from a day after the update? EA is working very hard to make e game fun.
    Back under your rock, and leave everyone in peace.
    If a YOU don't like the updates EA puts out, YOU don't have to play.

    Who are you to tell me not to play and not to voice my opinion?
    Also on this, like they say if you don't like it, there's the door. Nobody is denying your right to play. But the company owning this game have full rights do update what they want to when they want to and I'm sure if you complain they will also respond saying don't bother playing then.

    And even if the counter isn't fixed, what's with the last prize? A skin for the cooling towers that we won't get before Christmas. Hooray! If we do actually get it, it'll just be in time to put it in storage.......with all the crummy Halloween community prizes.

    Very good point.. Though, I find it acceptable to leave out spooky areas and cemeteries all year round, but if you have a pretty little Christmas square set up all year round... LOSER! (haha..)

    Your complaint get worse and worse every time. People complained about a fake counter, so they made a real one. Happy tapping.


    Looks like all Josh is getting is a pile of coal this year.

    Remember that Halloween started slowly too. Watch for the 'counter' to speed up.

    It may speed up but not nearly by enough.


    The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
    Love the rants, though. Congrats on the shout out from EA.
