    This is not fair I spend so much time on this game to complete quest and get a Faberge Egg to find out there is a know bug.

    9 days with no baskets and 8 days with no Faberge egg.

    At most, I'm opening one gold box a day. People in this boat have significantly lower chances. I really hope a fix is in the works.

    I have been playing for two and a half years, through all kinds of glitches. Other than being locked out of one's town, server problems and the more extreme situations, this is the first event in which I have been prevented from normal gameplay for such an extended length of time that there is no hope of attaining good prizes.

    I am somewhere in the 4 to 4.5 day range with no egg (and no baskets)


    Not only does this mean less baskets for me (and the resultant 400 eggs) but I am finding less and less baskets in my 100 friends where I can exchange my common eggs.

    I clear my rabbits multiple times per day - 3 or 4, so I am pretty much near the max given the 5 hour window - plus I plant carrots whenever I can.

    I have not complained about any of EA's previous updates (playing for about a year now). Even though some were a grind, they were all at least possible. This Easter one is just horrible.

    If it weren't for my type A, never quit, personality, I would have been done with this a while ago.

    Now starting Day 7 with no FE. Can I make it until the end of the event without getting a FE or baskets? Tune in and find out!

    Based on how quickly most people are (or aren't) getting the FE, I'm guessing EA set the odds of getting it from any one rabbit at 0.1%. That means most people would find it, on average, within about 4 days. But some people will inevitably take much longer and a few very unlucky people will never find it, even if they keep feverishly tapping right to the end.

    7 days and counting without any baskets. At first, I thought it was because of the in-game update and they had taken baskets out while they fix the other issue. I finished the quest line at around the same time the update hit, so yeah, it's been frustrating.

    It's been roughly 33 hours since I received the egg and I just now received A (singular, 1) basket.

    In one of my side towns, I STILL haven't received the egg and thus no baskets. It is now day 6. Makes it really hard to do anything in that town since I don't keep a full neighbor list.

    In protest, I've decided to burn my egg generator.

    @mamlettejen: great picture!

    I'm happy that they added some new characters for Level 40 and even a new deco for KL, I really am. However, it feels like, since the update brought no fixes for Basketgate, EA has just given up on the Easter update and all its problems and is instead trying to distract us with a new level.

    I went for over a week with five empty baskets and unable to donate to most of my friends' baskets. After the last mini-fix, my baskets slowly filled and then were all used up. Now it's been nearly a week again and I've received no new baskets. I still see some active friends whose baskets seem unfillable even though I have enough of the correct egg color and their baskets appear empty.

    I don't really care about not getting the Faberge egg even though I finished the quest five days ago, and I can even suffer through the annoying roulette system and having to tap nonstop. What is frustrating beyond all else is that now that I ended the quest line, there's a maximum number of eggs I can earn daily simply by completing the character egg hunts (Homer, Ned, Nelson, Moe, and Ralph), plus the free Frink egg generator, plus tapping bunnies and visiting towns. The rate of declining dividends on visiting towns (after the first 60 actions you only earn maximum 3 eggs per town) makes it even tougher, and unless you can zap bunnies every hour twenty-four hours daily (which I can't), I'm lucky to get one, maybe two boxes daily. So you can understand my frustration when I go through all that and my one daily box yields a fence or a pond. At least with Whakcing Day we could trade eggs and earn enough to advance through prizes at a reasonable rate. Now without baskets (and only getting five total, of which one I paid for), it's impossible to complete on time.

    What is worse is that I don't even mind spending some donuts in order to speed things along, if that actually ensured we would actually win the prizes. But when spending donuts (and even lots of them) only ensures you will get boxes, which may offer nothing but "prizes", than forget it. I won't gamble for realo money, let alone gambling real money for animated prizes that lose their appeal after a day or two.

    So please add me to this list, and maybe EA will decide to fix this problem...or maybe they won't and we'll just have to wait for Halloween.

    Love this! Perfect. (They're gonna wonder why there's such a sudden demand for burning bushes.) :)

    Haha wish I had the giant magnifying glass. Currently saving up to buy the rest of the land so no such luck. I'll keep it in mind just in case we have another basketgate-esque event though :lol:
