(Sung to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”)
Take trash out to the trash can,
Make sure to re-cy-cle.
Use less papers and paper towels,
I turn off the water and never waste towels.
So it’s root, root, root for the green team,
If we don’t live green it’s a shame.
For it’s reduce, reuse and re-cy-cle,
In our clean world game.
What’s up my friends? Well… it appears in TSTO Land, EA has decided to go green when they’re creating new stuff for our games. What’s that mean? Click more and see.
With the new stuff released on September 4th, a lot of tappers who have played for a bit were struck with DÉJÀ VU for three of the items. It seems Lisa Simpson must have convinced the designers to not only use recycling materials for her castle but also for new things too. I guess recycling pixels is in vogue now too. Let’s take a look at the three items compared to their predecessors.
|CHEST OF SACRED ARTIFACTS||Treasure Chest|
|Limited Time – Stonecutters||Limited Time – Clash of Clones|
|Brown gold chest with red lining||Dark brown chest with purple lining, crown inside is different, scroll removed|
|55 donuts||85 donuts|
|Earns $200/20 XP every 8 hrs, during event earned 20 emblems every 8 hrs||Earns 20 gold coins every 12 hrs|
|Can be placed on Grass, Pavement, & Squidport||Can be placed on Grass, Pavement, Beach & Squidport|
As you can see, the first one was a better deal and it was nice to get one free during the Stonecutter Event. The new one has an extra placement option. and may be worth it for anyone who joined after Stonecutters. I say pass.
|BACKWATER BREWERY||ELIXIR MIXER|
|Moonshine still in cinder blocks||Similar still but liquid is purple and it’s now animated|
|Released Chirstmas 2013, still available||Limited Time – Clash of Clones|
|25 donuts||65 donuts|
|0.50% bonus to cash and XP||Earns 35 elixir every 8 hrs|
|Can be placed on Grass only||Can be placed on Grass only|
For this one, I have to say the Backwater Brewery is a better deal even though I like the animation and PURPLE of the new one. No clue at present whether the new one will generate cash or have a multiplier when the Clone Wars are over.
|Horse shed with neighing sound when tapped, eyes seen in slot||Same shed with medieval decorations|
|Limited Time – Yellow Badge of Cowardge Episode Tie-In||Limited Time – Clash of Clones|
|30 Donuts||40 Donuts|
|0.75% bonus to cash and XP||0.50% bonus to cash and XP|
|Can be placed on Grass, Pavement, Beach & Squidport||Can be placed on Grass, Pavement, Beach & Squidport|
For anyone who missed out on Macaroni’s Shed, this might be the right choice. Unfortunately it’s a bit more expensive and has a lower bonus. My first thought when this arrived was “Did EA see me talk about the barracks in another post?” If they did and this was the response, I apologize.
Besides these three, reader z-Man pointed out that the Windmill greatly resembles a feature of another building.
You think in the Clone universe, Barbarian Homer and Wizard Marge might find a use for the medieval windmill?
So there are the newest decorations EA decided to recycle and refurbish. What do you think of them? Did you purchase one or the other? Sound off below and stay classy as usual.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
