Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well the Crook and Ladder Event just dropped. It’s about time Springfield got a Fire Department! Time to bust out the fire hose and stock up on those donuts for all those brand new fire themed premium items in our stores.Now I know you may be trying to decide if these are 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 Fireman Homer and Fireman Apu to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these calendar pinups to your Springfield…
Costume/Skin: Fireman Apu and Fireman Homer
Donut Price: 100 Donuts
Leaves stores April 14th
-Two skins that both earn at at a premium rate.
-Each character comes with his own questline, so two new questlines
-Hilarious outdoor tasks for each
-Each fireman will earn double medals when doing tasks, so you’ll unlock the prizes faster
-There already are a million skins for Homer, many of which are premium
-Pricey for costumes for existing characters
-Does not come with a building or decoration
Go for it. You know you’re thinking about getting them anyway, so why not just pick them up? The earlier you grab them the more helpful they’ll be for you during the event. It’s not a bad price for two premium skins, and you know it’s going to drive you crazy if you don’t complete the Fire Character Collection…
This one is a freemium tossup in my opinion. There’s no great value long term for adding these two to your Springfield. They will help a tremendous amount during this event, but you’ll be able to unlock everything without their help as long as you play diligently. So personally, unless you’re hell bent on getting these two..I would pass. Save those bonuts for something better. Because let’s be honest, how often are you going to use Fireman Homer or Fireman Apu once this event is over?
Of course in the end it’s up to you. We can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do. And personally I can tell you I’m 99.9% sure I’ll be picking these two up…I’ll make my final decision by tonight. Whatever you decide just remember to make your choice before April 14th when they’ll leave our stores forever…also with these two it’s better to make a decision early so they can be the most beneficial to you. 🙂
