    ^^this. I spent another ten bucks yesterday *hoping* that I'd get Shary or Hugs. I received neither. I decided no more spending money on the random things like this. I'll keep spending when I can outright buy a character or something though.

    The chance based events really suck all the fun out of an event and turn it into a chore. I play this game to avoid doing chores. :mrgreen:

    I'm all for this. If they do make chance based events please make them with better odds and with one currency. Also this is how I imagined Ea when they thought of this event

    And if they do I'll be sure to not buy anymore. I have bought more then one boatload in history I'm sure I'm not alone in the high spending players who aren't going to anymore

    I stopped playing after I bought a second box. Today i pressed the game icon accidentally and noticed an update. Came here to read funny comments about another (perhaps, I don't know) lame update. Anyway my actions speak louder than my words and my signature. And I vote with my wallet.

    ...is the only thing that will carry any weight. Complain and vote all we want, if this is a financial success for EA, they will do it again.

    Not spending $$$ on boxes is how to make your voice heard. With that being said, I humbly join the angry mob :!:

    This event has already convinced me to go freemium after spending 15 doughnuts on a box and getting nothing it hadn't already gotten.

    maybe for the 4th of July they will have fireworks with 4 different colors. To light one you will need to collect 4 different color matches. 1 firework for 500 matches. 1 match ever 5 minutes will spawn randomly. You could visit friends for matches but they nerfed the match totals so 100 friends will only get you a tiny bit more than 20 friends. You could buy matches with donuts but the odds of getting anything good are so small that when you win the crap prizes you feel buyers remorse.


    Buyers remorse EA. In case you have not heard of it here is the definition.

    "Buyer's remorse is the sense of regret after having made a purchase. It is frequently associated with the purchase of an expensive item such as a car or house. It may stem from fear of making the wrong choice, guilt over extravagance, or a suspicion of having been overly influenced by the seller."

    I kinda don't mind chance based prizes. I just wish they'd remove the stupid stuff from the grand prize wheel like fences and decorations. I need 5 more fences to get donuts.

    I'm in. EA I'm happy to spend real money on this game but it's a game called tapped out. I like to tap things - I will happily tap 1000's of things. I do not like chance based rewards. I don't want chance I want to tap and be rewarded for tapping.

    This event would have been fine if there were more eggs and you could help your friends more. Visiting had virtually no advantage for you or your friends. This made me saddest of all.

    I couldn't agree more. During past events I was able to share much more with all my neighbors. This event has turned most of us into egg hoarders! Finally got enough for a gold box today only to be rewarded with my 4th gate! :evil: I've been playing since September 2012 and this event prize system is THE WORST!

    Please EA take notice and stop the wheels and boxes of chance!

    I hate the gambling aspect of this event. Go back to personal and community prizes.

    Hear that ea? You owe me a new phone!!!!!


    In all seriousness, I've long said chance has little place in a game like this and this event has only emboldened that viewpoint. I, like many others will not be buying doughnuts unless they show they're willing to listen to us for a change and not just mock us in the in game dialogue.

    I don't post very often but this I couldn't resist. Tired of the stupid chance prizes. I won't spend donuts lo increase my chances of getting the good stuff because I don't need another pond, gate or tree. I am willing to purchase things, not chances. :?
