Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…it’s not a 5 day extension but it’s an extension nonetheless! A patch just hit our games correcting the massive date issues that have plagued us for all of Phase 2. We now have a NEW date in the mix and that date is….January 14th.
EA has given us a 1 day extension on Phase 2 of Christmas. The new end date and time is….January 14th, 2015..12:00pm EST (1700 GMT).
They’ve also added a few items back into the shop….
Happy Elves Ride (will be locked in your game unless you have K-land)
Springfield Skating Rink
All 3 Festive Lamp Posts
Many of you have commented we didn’t do a Should I Buy on the Ride, the Rink & the Mall. You’re right…with the holidays they got lost in the shuffle. We do have posts about all of them (WDTCFs) but here’s a quick should I Buy for all of them:
Ride- Was free before, now 30 donuts. Another Ride for K-Land. This one is a go for. If you can get it, it’s always nice to have another ride for Krustyland. And 30 donuts is a reasonable price.
Rink- Was free before, now 85 donuts. No character interaction, earns at an ok rate…but that’s it. Just another useless building for Springfield (although when it get’s animated (like stonecutters etc) it has a fun animation. A Zamboni comse out from behind it). This one is a complete pass for me. Not worth those 85 sprinkles.
Mall- Was free before, now 90 donuts. No character interaction, earns at an ok rate…but that’s it. Another useless building for Springfield (animation also isn’t that good. The fan on top of it spins). Complete pass in my opinion. Definitely not worth the 90 sprinkles.
So so if you’re close to that Island get to tapping! You’ve got one more day of Bell Collection to make it!
Personally, I think this is a fair extension. It gives players who are close to the Island a chance to collect those last minute Bells & it’s not an overwhelming extension (in time) for those who’ve already collected everything.
Remember…if you’ve already collected all of your prizes…use the extra day to earn free donuts! Keep collecting those bells and turn them into Sprinkles! 🙂
What do you think of the extension? Thoughts on Christmas overall? Are you close to finishing or do you need even more time? If you’ve finished, how many free donuts have you gotten so far? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
