Should I Spend Donuts On Anger Watkins and the ESBN Sports Desk?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Episode tie-ins are back!  EA wasted no time in bringing us some new content, and this time it’s an episode tie-in for this Sunday’s upcoming “22 for 30″ episode of The Simpsons.  And of course all new update (no matter how small) means premium content in our stores to spend those sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Anger Watkins and the ESBN Sports Desk to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bottle throwing broadcaster to your Springfield…

Decoration/Building: ESBN Sports Desk
Character: Anger Watkins
Donut Price: 110 Dounts
Earns: 3% bonus on all cash and XP (desk)
Size: 3×4
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200

Leaves Stores March 15th

Pros
-Low donut price for character/item combo
-Full character, earns 50% more on all cash and XP
-Comes with a questline
-Hilarious animated tasks, one of which will use the Sports desk

Cons
-Not voiced.
-One off character for The Simpsons (although he appears to be modeled after ESPN personality Stephen A Smith)

Final Thought
Premium:
Premium players, who likely already own everyone else, anytime there’s a character building/item (that offers a bonus %) combo for 100-110 donuts you know I always tell you to grab it.  That’s a fantastic price for a character combo, and in this case the desk comes with a sweet 3% bonus, that you shouldn’t have to think twice about it.  Grab him.

Freemium:
Yes, this is a great price for the combo.  HOWEVER, with this update EA has brought back many other characters and offered rebates on them.  So personally, if you don’t already have them, I’d spend donuts on Mrs. Bouvier and/or Coach K first.  As those combos will put you at 95 donuts and 100 donuts (after the rebates), which is an even better price to pay for combos…especially ones where the characters are recurring Simpsons characters.
If you already have those, than this is a good buy.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’ve picked this combo up.  No idea where I’m going to put the desk yet, but I’ve got the combo. Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores next week.  So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

Here’s a look at Anger Watkins’ tasks…

  1. The old premium item _I_ want is the TentaCorp building – just because it looks so cool! I kick myself that I missed it whenever I see it in someone else’s town….

  2. This Character deserved to be voiced (it’s the ONLY reason I am passing on buying) ….. I’m​ sure he will be back at Discount (right EA?) 😅

  3. Would love to get Mrs. Bouvier, but you have to get Anger W. first. Bought coach and now am too low on donuts to get a character I should pass on just to get one I want and leave myself donut-less. As a freemium player, it takes too long to build them up. Is there a freemium donut-building system out there ?

  4. I almost always buy every new character and in this case it’s a good price and value but I hate the real life personality it’s based on so I gotta pass.

  5. Is the Gridiron the sports bar that was available as a prize from the Tapball event? If it is then I might get Watkins + the desk because of it, but a St. Patricks event might come next week with something good.
