Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s getting sporty in Springfield! With the 2015 Tap Ball Event loads of new sports related decorations and buildings have been introduced in our stores. During Act 2 of the event the Basketball Stadium has arrived in our stores. 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 Basketball Stadium to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this sports arena to YOUR Springfield!
Building: Basketball Stadium
Donut Price: 90 Donuts
Earns: $500, 45xp/24hrs
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Consumerism +10
-Comes with a short questline and 1 time use task for Bumblebee Man (Mr. Burns is part of the task too, but he doesn’t use the building for his part)
-Neat looking building, great to finish out a sports complex area.
-Adds to consumerism, one of the hardest areas to max out
-Does not pay out event currency
-Very pricey for a one time use building
Personally I don’t think this is worth the donuts. If it paid event currency or the task was permanent, I’d think it was a little more worth it…but as it stands I think it’s a pass. Unless of course you have a sports complex that you’re dying to complete…
Stay away from this one in my opinion. Just not worth the donuts for what it is/what it does.
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 will be passing on this one. In my mind, it’s just not worth it. Whatever you decide, just remember it is limited time, so if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you do before Act 2 ends or you’ll miss your chance!
Here’s a look at the dialogue that pops up:
Mr. Burns starts
Mr. Burns: My strange, beehive-themed basketball stadium is a stirring reminder that the idiot public can be made to pay for anything. They build me a $250,000,000 stadium, and I provide them with a few minimum-wage jobs slinging hot dogs forty nights a year. Everyone wins!
Bumblebee Man: Ay-yi-yi! Una gran casa para mi familia!
Make Burns Learn About Modern Basketball- 8hrs, Earns 8 , 105xp
Make Bumblebee Man Move into the Stadium- 8hrs, Earns 8, 105xp
Burns: My beautiful stadium has been infested with bees. Smithers, call a bee exterminator!
Bumblebee Man: No es bueno, Senor Burns! Soy un homre!
Smithers: I think he’s saying that he’s a man, sir.
Burns: Well, we have exterminators for those, too.
Smithers: They are slightly more expensive than insect exterminators.
Burns: True, but I do so love watching them work.
The Basketball Stadium Leaves Our Stores on July 13rd
