Addicts Reader Hit & Miss: Premium Characters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

A few weeks ago we asked you all to participate in a detailed reader survey, where we wanted to know everything about YOU.   Then last week we revealed the results during our blogiversary week.  However, while we revealed almost all of the results we did not share the complete results of YOUR favorite Premium purchases.  Instead we only shared the best and worst in the different categories.  So we thought it would be fun to share the full results in each category because who better then to help you make a decision about what to spend donuts on, then your fellow tappers?

A few days ago we broke down YOUR picks for best and worst Premium/Character combos, let’s pick things back up with YOUR picks for best and worst stand-alone Characters…

  1. even tho i spoke of Arnie’s voice aka his insane laughter can be annoying at times, I have no regrets on buying him or any other character. On a side note, i love the XP and the greenbacks but i love the game more for its entertainment and creativity! Happy Tapping!!

  2. I don’t understand why Arnie Pye is so unpopular? I think he gives you the 2nd/3rd most XP boost (after squidport tiles and maybe Cletus’ farm)? Using him/CH6 (4,100$/2,100XP), SP and the farm should give you the best chances to gain donuts. Moleman (with stage) actually gives you only 1,100$ and 200XP. Or am I missing sth.?

  3. I love having Arnie Pye only because of the cool helicoper. His voice is annoying. Im glad i have squeeky voice teen. But his voice is similar to Arnies. Ha probably because they are both the voice of Dan Castellaneta. Ya think haha. My least favorite is Kearney. Hes just boring in my oppinion. Geez hes a father still going to elementry school. Wow! My favorite is ….. ugh … doh I have too many favorites to narrow it down to 1.

  4. Does anyone else find it strange that SVT is the favorite character but at the same time no 5 on the least favorite character List?

  5. Anyone else get freaked out by handsome Pete?

  6. i love Arnie but he needs Hibbert’s assist with his vocals, not Dr Nick,s

  7. Yea, Santa’s little helper would have been a closer second I think.
    Arnie rules! Traffic report heli task is one of my favs!
