It is a shame our 2 week bonus was severely disrupted by the collapsed stone economy. The last week of the bonus was a dud. My brother plays on IOS and just laughed at my fairly useless bonus.
I was even going to buy more gems to keep my bonus up, but the newest update put an end to that thought.
If Google payed EA for the buff, I would be interested to know how they felt about their buff being wasted.
