Sweet Treat Showdown Is Exhausting

Before starting this event, I had over 100,000 simoleons stocked up from completing events and llamazooms. Guess how much I have now? About 11k. And the prices for sugar cube refills? Ridiculous amounts of simcash/cupcakes. But the price of completing Rounds for the challenge aren't my main gripe.

It's the fact that you can have above a 90% success rate and STILL have a Dessert Disaster. I thought this function would be similar to the risky interaction feature, where, as long as you're in the green area, you're fine. But the chances on this event are just random.

Here's a Dessert Disaster at 90% in Round 2 :|

I also got a Dessert Disaster at 97% in Round 7 before another time. But then another time, I WON the second to last round on the 75% success rate, even though I consistently would lose previously if I dared to attempt below a 90% success rate.

There's still 1d 13hr remaining for me and I only have earned 45/76 prizes. The only redeeming factor about this event is that we don't receive duplicates that turn into useless fashion gems and (a pinch of) simoleons - we get different color swatches each time (they listened to us).

I hope we won't be seeing other events similar to this set-up because if so, count me out.

    It's rediculous. I had 760000 simoleons and about 1500 simcash before starting the challenge. I've used up most of the simcash and about 300000 simoleons. Still I don't really believe I will make it to the "Grandprice" with only a few days left. It's rediculous how few items you get for each event you complete. It's all about money for the EA team you knew it before but this time it really shows too well. I play this game so much of my time. And still I can't make this rediculous event to the end. Only chance for that would be to pay in real money and I'm done with that long time ago. And my cupcakes are also gone by the way, I had saved up about 65 of those. This event and challenge have really stolen everything I worked very hard for. And still I will not make it. Doesn't make any sense. Think they have to prepare for loosing many more players this time. Including me if I will not make the event.

    It’s absurd. Too much work for too little reward. I don’t want 6 different colors of a lamp as a reward, I want the dress. Too frustrating. Give me something different as a reward, instead of 6 beds.These different colorways as rewards are a joke. And the new quest is also too much work for waayyy too little reward. I give up! EA is just too money grubbing

    Was not a very good event. Prizes were meh for the most part and ridiculously long events that earned little.

    Yep. And the fact that they didn't give an item that gives us 125 event token currency every 11 hours (or sold us a $9.99USD bundle that I regularly buy, that gave us an item that spits out 400 event tokens every 11 hrs). We had to rely solely on the Challenge Rounds and the 6hr/12hr events that gave us less than 100 tokens:sleepy:

    The pay per color swatch was such a bad, bad move and then to incorporate it into events, making it that much harder to complete collections. I'm still ruffled they haven't tossed it like everyone wants.

    Same here, I spent over 300k and 23 cupcakes on this event and still didn't finish. I missed out by 4 boxes! This has got to be the worst event I've ever played in this game. I was failing sweet treat challenges at 92% so I always made sure I was over that percentage which only allowed me to play to round 6 or 7.
    The bonus's were skimpy too.

    What the $#@! EA. This event is a blatant cashgrab. It cons the player out of simcash, simoleons, cupcake galore!! Lowering my rating even more now from last year's autumn event. Absolute garbage. I just spent SO much simcash and simoleons that I've been saving up for over a year just for a failing cake to tell me I've lost all of the prizes I've spent so much plum working for. Dumb plum

    Edit: honestly, you know what, I haven't played for over a month and I keep going on hiatuses but now I'm just done. It's been a good ride but EA consistently doesn't learn from their mistakes. RIP
