Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
BEFORE I get into the details of the Gil deal…let me remind you. If you’re STILL missing donuts. Contact EA. If the first rep doesn’t refund your donuts, try again and get someone else. Be persistent and stay on top of them for it. LOADS of readers have had their donuts refunded to them by contacting EA. If they didn’t succeed the first time they tried again. I know it sucks having your donuts missing, but they can be restored/refunded. You just have to contact EA. Please don’t complain in the comments about missing donuts if you haven’t even tried to get them back from EA. You have to be a little proactive and persistent with this…stay on top of them until your donuts are refunded. Here’s the link to contact EA:
And now onto the specs of Gil Deal…..
Gil arrived back in Springfield yesterday afternoon, and brought us all a little summer treat! Cause nothing says summer like ice cream and the ice cream man, right?
So the Gil Deal this time around consists of the Ice Cream Truck and Ice Cream Man Homer costume. For 120 donuts both could be yours!
And I know many of your are wondering if this deal is worth your donuts…especially with that clock ticking down. But before you hit that confirm spend button let’s break down all the pros and cons of adding this sweet treat combo to your Springfield….
Offer Combo: Ice Cream Truck and Ice Cream Man Homer
Price: 120 Donuts
Bonus%: 3.5% bonus on all cash and xp
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +300
-Comes with a premium skin for Homer, earns 50% more than regular characters
-Nice bonus % offered with it
-Animated and has fun sound when tapped (plays ice cream truck music and says product contains neither ice nor cream)
-Comes with a questline
-Can be placed on the road, if you build the road under it (in other words, place the truck and then build a road under it.)
-Unlocks a permanent task for youngsters to “Sneak an Ice Cream”, which is 30m and earns $60,15xp
-Homer already has a TON of costumes
-A little pricey for a decoration and costume combo
I’m a fan of this one. It offers a nice bonus %, comes with a costume (even though Homer already has a ton) AND unlocks a permanent premium 30 minute task for the youngsters of Springfield. It hits all the marks on the “checklist” of premium items. As a premium player this is one I think is worth picking up.
For freemium players, this one is kind of a toss up. Yes, it hits all the “checklist” items for premium buys…BUT it doesn’t come with a character. Instead it comes with a skin, for Homer. I would say if you don’t currently have a premium skin for Homer this might be one worth picking up for you, but if you already have a bunch you may want to think a bit on this. Honestly it’s a toss up. Not a bad buy, but it’s one of those you can take or leave.
Of course in the end we can’t tell you what to do, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do. And I can tell you as a premium player this is one I’ll be picking up. However, whatever you decide just remember this IS limited-time and will be leaving our games on August 5th. So make sure you make your final decision before the clock runs out!
