Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Pride Month (or week depending on how you look at it) arrived in Springfield yesterday. And with it everyone’s favorite salesmen comes back to town. That’s right Ol’ Gil arrives with another premium pusher to ponder. This time Gil brings us a steal of a deal on the Ajax Steel Mill! Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Ajax Steel Mill and Roscoe to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this work hard, play harder building to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Ajax Steel Mill
Donut Price: 150 donuts
Earns: $200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Gluttony +10
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Roscoe is Voiced.
-Steel Mill is animated when in use, the windows flash lights like there’s a party going on (cause there is)
-After the questline is over Smithers and Duffman will both have a quest to dance outside the Steel Mill. (for those wondering it’s a 5hr task)
-No character interaction after questline
-The Steel Mill is massive, can be hard to fit into your Springfield (especially with limited land available)
This is going to be one of those items where I say if you like it grab it. If you don’t pass on it. There’s not a ton of benefit to adding it to your town, it’s basically like every other premium combo. It IS nice that two characters (outside of Roscoe) will have interaction at the Steel Mill once the questline is over (even if one of them is a premium character), but to me it’s huge and odd that it impacts Gluttony (I get it..because it’s a club at night. But it’s still odd).
Personally, I’m on the fence myself and leaning towards passing. Even though I work in the metal industry (although we primarily manufacture aluminum), I’ve got a ton of factories in my town and literally said to myself the other day I hope EA doesn’t release anymore!
As a freemium player…personally as a freemium player unless you REALLY want this combo, I’d pass on it. It’s pricey for what it is/what it does and there are going to be a couple other limited-time events coming up (4th of July to name one). Personally I’d rather save my hard earned sprinkles for something a little smaller and more impactful down the road.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I honestly haven’t made up my mind with this combo yet. However, remember this IS limited-time so don’t take too long with your thought process. Roscoe and the Steel Mill will leave our Springfield’s next week (on 6/10)…so be sure to make your final decision before then otherwise you might miss out!
