    I feel shame and embarrassment. I have been playing this game since last September. It was great. Then in December things started to change. EA introduced wheel and chance based prize systems. That was OK at first. I spent my little 10 dollars a month on donuts. (That's 120 dollars a year, for those of you bad at math). That's good, because its like buying 2 really nice games for a console system a year. Fast forward to Easter. Now there is the chance at a chance system. I spent 40 dollars this month, for nothing. Every thing I won was for free. I feel like EA deliberately set the odds in this update to make money at the expense of the player. I'm not mad because I spent money, and didn't get everything I wanted. I'm upset, because I've player other holiday updates for this game, and this one left me with the feeling that something wasn't quite right. I'm not going to quit playing, but I'm going to quit paying. I'm ashamed and embarrassed that I let myself get sucked into spending money like that. In Vegas, you know the odds are stacked against you, so you only have yourself to blame when you loose. How long do you stay in Vegas, when you see that you are only loosing money, and that it's not fun anymore?

    Also, I don't know how yall got So many fences, I thought I had won nearly all of them.

    After playing every day for the event, I feel like I got jack squat. I didn't even finish the fence quest. 35/50 I feel like you should have at least been able to get all the buildings, and a few of the premium characters if you played the event daily. *insert Mrs Crabapple's Haa!*

    I've been a very dedicated player for this entire event and am still missing Johnny Fiestas, Chirpy Boy and Bart Jr., a Kang topiary, Egg Council Guy, Shary Bobbins, and Hugs Bunny. I only have 30 fences too so I didn't even suck enough to win consolation donuts. I hate those worthless egg piles. I would most like to have Johnny Fiestas, but I spent much of the event trading my blue eggs for pink ones to try to maximize my gold egg collection. I did get Blocko Store and Banana Dictatorship, and have since been trying to win Johnny Fiestas to no avail. This event really took away a lot of the enjoyment from this game with their slim odds and random chance design.

    We could all look on the bright side! Didn't get the building you wanted? You probably didn't have land for it anyway! Your creativity hasn't been taxed to the point of shattering your soul!

    Whining. Entitlement. Greed. Any number of horrible traits that most would be embarrassed to have ascribed to themselves.

    I come on here to find out new stuff about the game. Since this event it's been a selfish tirade of complaints and whining clogging up the boards. Many of you should be utterly ashamed.

    Best to just stay away until the kids are done crying about Easter

    Hoo, boy. Kids, I can tell Pa's gon' have himself another troll trophy on the wall here right soon.

    Translation: go troll somewhere else. I'm sure there are some Youtube videos that need your piquant brand of denigration and insults.

    Frustrated, then bored, then frustrated, then tired and finally frustrated with EA and the stupid chance prizes.

    To date this Easter Event holds the spot for the most grinding and the most frustrating moments I had experienced in this game since I joined up last year. This event did not contain that "exhilaration" like it did in the past events.

    P.S.: Spent 100 Doughnuts for 2 truckload of Gold Eggs, received 2 Kodos Topiary, 20 Kilometers of fences, and NO HOPE at all for Sheri Bobbins or the referee. :( Time for me to listen to the Rolling Stones' "You can't always get what you want"
