    Oh ok, so fingers crossed for Mapple and Steve Mobbs.

    Thanks


    Are you hoping for the Mapple Co. Building and Character Steve Mobbs? Because the Mapple Store never came with a character that I can recall...

    It came by itself yes. But I'm hoping that if it does ever get re-released for you players that want it, that it will bring Steve Mobbs as a playable character.

    Just like the Cool Brown House, if it gets re-released, then it should bring Terrence as a playable character

    Similar to how we got Sir Put-a-Lots for Valentine 2013 & when it was re-released, it came with Rod & Todd

    Why did my Easter baskets I bought disappear????
  • edited April 2014
    Great Easter event, only seriously all I am winning are fences and those ugly trees. It's actually so complicated and difficult to earn eggs that it's putting me off playing anymore. Past events you at least would win something decent if you spent donuts but so far 100+ fences and I've put over 300 donuts into the thing.

    If you're going to have a prize like 15 donuts for 50 fences, have it be repeating. This just seems like an EA cash grab.

    I will be happy with Mapple. But a Steve Mobbs character would be awesome!!

    They are one time use only items. Once they are filled up & you collect from them, they disappear.

    I'm not sure I entirely agree. When I downloaded this game I understood that premium items were not part of the free game and that I would be unable to access premium items without spending money. I believe that the value of the entertainment provided by the free game is a fair exchange for the accesses granted on my phone (let's not pretend that the poor coders will not get paid if I don't buy donuts). That said, this new Easter update does appear to represent some degree of false advertising. In the original game what is free and what cost donuts is clearly outlined. The expansion seems to suggest that all Gold box prizes are available to everyone without having to spend $, however the reported ratios for actually winning these prizes state that some prizes are unavailable entirely until a minimum number of boxes have been opened. These minimums do not currently appear possible without spending money on them and thus those prizes are not really available to everyone. If this is the case, they should have more honestly put a donut value on them and not suggested that they were available to all.

    Im totale bummed. I think there is something wrong with the algorhytm. I only get fences and beach towels. Also gold eggs which earn me Fences again. Im not bashing the game in the past it got me plenty free stuff. But nog im halfway through the time and only beach towel a happy tree and gold donuts. No. building or character. I'll keep playing but just saying

    Stephmiller & mennohegeman, I agree with both of you. It seems this latest event had the odds stacked against the players. Especially the Freemium ones

    They should indeed go back to the previous way of having us grind for the prizes

    10 personal prizes
    5 community prizes
    A wheel with 10 unique prizes only attainable through the wheel.

    This way at least everyone will get something & earn things through playing & work

    Yes, you can have more than one. Not sure why it's crashing for you

    @Deadshot_DCU, I have to agree with you mostly, especially while The Simpsons Tapped Out nothing more than a cow clicker is and not a game. Though this term cow clicker too is getting vaguer and vaguer when comparing this with actual paid games like "Plants vs. Zombies" or "RYSE: Son of Rome" where "micro-transactions" are also 'available'.

    Where I have to disagree is with certain premium items, like Barney, Jimbo and Frink just to name a few. They are major characters and were probably free at a certain point back when the game launched. Though I would love to get my hands on some of these items, though because I only recently found out that this 'game' exists I should pay donuts? That is where I have to disagree, even with *ALL* of the *FREE* items...

    Barney was free back in the Holiday 2012 event where you could buy him with event currency (Santa Coins). After the event, he became a premium character.

    Jimbo & Frink have always been premium.

    big time true i enjoy it even w/o all the premiums, they even give second chance at the free stuff if u missed it at some point, there should be an event where they have all the free prize items make a return for us to try and get..
