UPDATE FROM BUNNY 11PM EST: Many can’t get the deal to trigger. I’m looking into it and testing some possible fixes. Will update if successful.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
As of right now I see nothing new in my game. However…the files are calling it a Back to School Pre Patch. So it could be the precursor to something more? We’ll have to wait and see.
Right now we’re checking to see if we see any differences in the game. Perhaps a sign of things to come? What do YOU think? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
Update 5:30 PM EDT: I stand corrected..it’s ANOTHER Gil deal (had to go into my C game to see it). Yikes! This time Gil’s offering you Otto’s School Bus (and some playground equipment) for 70 donuts…if you already have Otto you won’t see it (which explains why many of us were scratching our heads).
More details below the fold.
Gil is once again back begging you for business…when you tap on him in your town this dialog starts up….
Gil: Hey, little girl. Do I have some GREAT back to school deals for you!
Lisa: Really? I do love back to school shopping. It’s the amuse-bouche to the entree of learning! Sometimes I can see why I’m not popular.
Gil: So what good can old Gil tempt you with? Maybe some repossessed playground equipment? I’ve got monkey bars, a tetherball and a see. For the right price I’ll even throw in the saw.
Lisa: I was actually hoping for deals on things like pens, binders….
Gil: Oh, I don’t have any of those. But could sweeten this playground equipment with something every 8-year old child needs….A brand new used school bus!
Gil: Aww, come on! This is a classy school bus. It’s got a steering wheel, nearly 50% off its seats, and an only slightly rabid raccoon family living in the back. Plus it comes with a licensed driver. It’s one of those medical marijuana licenses though
Ok so this feels kinda like it was thrown together quickly and at the last minute. My guess is EA is working on something and it’s not ready so they’re throwing out these Gil Deals because they’re quick to put together. HOWEVER….I am not amused. While this is a GREAT deal for those who want Otto….where’s our REAL update EA?
What are YOUR thoughts? Will you be taking Gil’s deal? Is Gil even in your town? Are you ready for an update already? What are you doing to amuse yourself in the lull? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
