Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We’ve got ourselves a little Stonecutters Black Market Sale Update.
While the dialogue included is pretty amusing…the content is massively lacking. Especially for those Tappers who have been playing for a while. But nevertheless…it’s still a great opportunity for new Tappers to pick up Stonecutter items they may have missed out on last summer.
More details on what’s included in a bit…More details below the fold
But this event ends in a week. So what does this mean for Valentine’s Day? Could EA be closing that door shut? Hard to say at this point. Valentine’s Day is still just over a week away & their competition (TinyCo/Family Guy) is gearing up for a massive Valentine’s Day update. So I’d find it hard to believe they’re just going to throw it aside…but we shall see….
When you log into your game you’ll see some dialogue between Homer, Number 1 and Lisa:
Homer: I can’t believe Seattle blew that touchdown last Sunday. I had twenty bucks on that game! Who goes for a pass on 2nd and goal!?
Number 1: *singing* We do, we do!
Homer: I knew it. It’s always a conspiracy when i lose money!
Lisa: Number 1?! Are you saying the Stonecutters Control the team?
Number 1: No, we control all televised football. Do you like number 49’s halftime show?
Lisa: But the crazy internet rumors said she’s in the illuminati, not the Stonecutters
Number 1: We control them too.
Now if you played through the Stonecutters Event and had success, you won’t see much in your store. I have all the items and I only have the All Seeing Eye in my store as well as the hieroglyphic walls. Others might have more.
This will be broken up into three “waves” as EA is calling them. The final end date is February 12th. Here’s the breakdown for the other “waves”:
Wave 1 Ends- February 7th (Saturday) 0800 GMT (3am EST)
Wave 2 Ends- February 9th (Monday) 0800 GMT (3am EST)
Wave 3 Ends- February 11th (Wednesday) 0800 GMT (3am EST)
Again the Event itself ends February 12th (Thursday) 0800 GMT (3am EST)
Here’s a look at what you can get during the First Wave:
Remember THIS stuff will leave the game on 2/7/15 at 0800 GMT:
Stone of Triumph- 75 Donuts Previously a Free Prize. Homer has a task with it. More details on it here.
Abandoned Store- 30 Donuts. Was previously Premium. Should I Buy on it here.
Number 36- FREE. Was free last time, yes get this one. Will come with a short 1 part quest. Same quest as previously, more here.
The following items will be in your game for the next 7 days. They’ll leave when the event ends on 2/12/15 0800 GMT (3am EST)
Stonecutter Daycare Center- $250,000. Previously for cash. More details here.
All Seeing Eye- 100 Donuts. Previously Premium, Should I Buy here.
Stonecutter Table- 120 Donuts. Was previously free. Did initially have a free donut Easter Egg with it, not sure if it will work this time around but details are here.
Hieroglyph Wall- $500. Previously in game cash. More details here.
Number 51- 100 Donuts. Previously Premium. Should I buy here
That’s it for this round my friends…but more should be hitting our games soon. Once we know what else is being added we’ll update you on what’s available and for how long.
I will say that it does look like they will be bringing back ALL of the Stonecutter skins for the characters, and each one will cost donuts. BUT it does look like we will be getting 2 more for free (from what I can tell it’ll be Skinner & Brockman that will be free).
Remember Stonecutters was an Event that took place in June of 2014. We’ve got a whole section of our site dedicated to posts about the event, so if you’d like to know more we encourage you to check it out here.
I know it’s a bit disappointing if you’re an older player, or maybe even if you’re a newer player, but it does give players who missed out on items a chance to pick them out. I am a fan of EA bringing back older items for newer players to get, BUT I do think they could have thrown older players a bone at least. Maybe given us something new? New Tasks for Number 1, something. But let’s all be patient and hope that it’s just a case of the next update being delayed and it’ll hit soon….
