Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
YeeHaw! The Wild West has arrived in our pocket-sized Springfields! With bandits to tie up, guns to sling, gold to pan & gold ole’ Homer getting everyone all riled up! So bust open the vaults and grab those donuts because there are loads of new Wild West themed premium items in our stores!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Buck McCoy and the Filmset to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Real McCoy to your town.
Building/Decoration: Wild West Film Set
Character: Buck McCoy
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: 4 every 4hrs
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +500
Leaves stores on May 30th…but the earlier you buy the better
-Comes with a questline
-Fun animated tasks
-Buck will use the Filmset (visual animation there and non)
-Film set produces extra bandits for your town…which means extra event currency
-Buck can earn currency at the town plaza (at a premium rate)
-Buck is a 1 off character, so it may be hard to justify spending 150 donuts on him
-4 bandits every 4hrs really isn’t that great of a return on your investment
Buck isn’t a bad buy. 150 donuts is a bit steep, but at least he can help with the event and it’s a character combo. (after the event the Film Set should earn cash/xp) If you’re going to get him, I’d get him sooner rather then later so he can be the most useful to you during the entire event.
This is one of those Freemium toss ups. It is pricey, but it does help with the event overall. However, unless you’re a really big fan of the episode Buck McCoy was in, I’d pass. 150 donuts, in my opinion, is too much to pay for a 1 off character for freemium players. Those donuts are much to valuable!
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’m on the fence with this one. Still debating it myself, but I’ll probably make my final decision before the weekend. (so he can be the most helpful for the entire event) Just make sure that you pick him up sooner rather then later if you’re thinking about getting him. The sooner he’s in the game the more beneficial he’ll be to you!
Note: Buck does come with a questline. Personally I think you should hold off on completing the questline until the event is over (it’ll still be around), so that you can use Buck at the Town Plaza to help you earn Event Currency…
