I admit it. My head is a bit broken. I’ve tried to curb my viewing of “current events,” but have failed miserably. So, it was a welcome surprise, and a nice diversion when EA came across with an early (kinda) Black Friday/Thanksgiving mini-update.
I say “kinda” early, because the fact is, it mostly happened the same time as last year, and the year before. It’s Thanksgiving that is late this year. How DARE they make Thanksgiving and the REAL Black Friday so late in the month, and so close to Christmas???
Anyway, there was plenty to unpack for this event, and I’m sure most of you are very excited about the chance to get a ton of stuff that had been offered, at discount prices, as long as you were willing to spend real money.
Wait. What??? They are doing THIS again? Forcing us to spend REAL MONEY (instead of farmed donuts) to get some of the stuff being offered????
So it’s the week BEFORE Black Friday, and Black Friday “deals” have been live in our game for a couple of days now. Late with Halloween, early with Black Friday, huge gaps with no updates….someone really needs to buy EA a calendar for Christmas.
Anyway, similar to last year, EA has not only added Mystery Boxes to our games but they’ve also added cash only (as in, actual cash…not in-game cash) prizes/options. Loads of questions/comments/complaints/general panic coming in over this. So let’s break it all down…
The other day I broke down the items in all of the Mystery Boxes for donuts…now it’s time to breakdown the items for tokens in the Gold Box.
This one’s a pretty big deal, because to get a bulk of tokens you’ll need to actually spend money on donuts. So it’s important to know which items are ONLY in the Gold Box, and which items can be found in the Yearbook Mystery Box. So here’s the complete rundown of the Gold Box…
