So, the Christmas event doesn’t end until JANUARY 13th but I feel that now is the right time to talk about this as it will give you enough time to change your event strategy if it’s required.
As of late, there have been some pretty big hugely annoying and often prolonged server outages. This in turn has had a negative effect on my Christmas Event totals. Right now I’m way behind where I need to be to get to the final prize. That means only one thing for me – I won’t make all of the prizes, at least not for ”free” anyway.
I pride myself on owning every item they’ve ever released – even the obscenely priced 500 doughnut whale. So, if I want to get everything, I’ll need to spend some doughnuts to get them. Now, that doesn’t bother me too much, it happens from time to time and there’s nothing I can do about it.
What does bother me is the amount of server issues EA have had with this event that have lead me to the situation I’m in. EA should know after two and a half years of game time, that it is during events that their servers are at their most strenuous. It is therefore my belief that EA should invest in some more reliable power once and for all or at least provide some extra server power even just for their events.
How are you doing though? Will you make it without the help of doughnuts and if not, will you be buying your remaining prizes? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
