For those that wish to accumulate upgrades instantly, we have enabled an optional system for them to buy the resources at a minimal cost ($1-$3).”
This is probably just a PR stunt to turn this glitch around but regardless. EA could have easily patched this instantly but instead they chose not to and kept it to balance out the micro-transactions. Maybe there in some humanity in EA.
