Should I Spend Donuts On Russ Cargill?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The spies are invading Springfield!  Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games.  We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers and a shrinking donut bank account because there are LOADS of spy items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

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 Russ Cargill?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this E.P.A. power tripping head to your Springfield…

Costume: Russ Cargill
Donut Price: 80 Donuts

Leaves Stores April 25th

-Premium character for Springfield (earns 50% more cash/xp)
-Comes with a full 5 part questline
-Hilarious outdoor tasks
-Earns a super premum rate at the HQ (80 intel/4hrs)

-Not voiced

Final Thought
Premium and Freemium:
There’s a reason why there are few cons for Russ Cargill.  He’s a fun character, but his cons stand for themselves.  He’s over priced for a stand alone character & he’s not a voiced character.  That being said, if you have fond memories of Cargill from The Simpsons Movie now is you’re chance to pick him up.  It does help that he earns Super Premium at the HQ…
This purchase is solely based on your affection for the character, as there are no practical reasons to pick him up.  As Mastermind Hank and/or the Nerds are a much better deal.

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’ll likely be picking Russ Cargill up.  I’m one of the ones who was hoping he’d join the game in one capacity or another.  Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores soon.  Whatever you decide, 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 his tasks..

  1. I had been buying all the human characters. But it has been easy to pass on characters since I passed on the two Frenchmen who gave Bart antifreeze to drink (what a fun scene to be reminded of daily).

    I’ll save the donuts for the return of Shari Bobbins or Zutroy. I hope we get Tibor, Hippie Martin Mull, George Carlin, and Tom Landry before the game becomes unprofitable.

  2. I see stuff like this and am reminded that the Simpson’s crew* are (to put it mildly) ‘not gun people’. Lol.
    *series and TSTO game

  3. What’s up with all the new characters only having 60mins or 4hr outdoor tasks? I’d like an 8 or 12 HR outdoor task more than the shorter ones.

    I picked him up, & look forward to completing his quest line 😊

  5. I almost forgot I had him. I bought him right away, did his quest (which was very short) and he’s been helping with event currency ever since.

  6. I like him, but I don’t have any donuts to spend. I would like the game to be a little less donut oriented, Why can’t you buy him for a couple million ingame cash instead?

  7. Russ Cargill as is? That’s a 40 Donuts Character (I’m sure he will be back “on sale” later this year) and you are correct, Alissa, the Nerds are worth the Donuts! 👌🤓

  8. No an8mated 8 hour task? Nope I run those 2 times a day every day so it’d be like he didn’t exist! ALSO PLEASE DO A post were you say the best buys at the end of an event when it brings everything back on the last day.

  10. I had high expectations for this anticipated character, price doesnt bother me, but them tasks… i really
    dont need more 24hr brown house visits.. ill buy him one day for sure thought, just not this time

  11. Pass
    I would buy the nerds before I buy him, but I’m not buying the nerds.

  12. i snapped him up right away.

  13. Another premium character with limited visual tasks. I am disappoint.

  14. Thank you

  15. SIB?
    Well, he’s got his Harvard MBA shotgun, so that’s a big plus.
    But since I have already purchased three premium characters, I have to pass.
    Now, if he came with “tough guy,tough guy, soft guy, tough guy…..”

  16. I got him but kind of regret it. His quest wasn’t that funny. Maybe he’ll grow on me once I have him doing something besides earning event currency.

    It is sad at what they didn’t do with him. There would be so many animations they could have added (I would really enjoyed three animations with him) one animation could be Maggie throwing a bolder at him. It feels lime a missed opportunity for EA to not have him come with the EPA hover jet. I will probably be picking him up even if he is a lot of missed opportunity. I am hoping that EA in the future will add more tasks to him.

  18. Who?

  19. 2 donuts more and I buy him

  20. Underwhelmed…😕…if I had it to do again, I probably wouldn’t…

  21. Let’s hope this is a little teaser to a Simpsons Movie (mini)event as I still want Boob Lady and Harry Plopper 😃.
    A few items from this event are from my event idea – they rEAd everything!

  22. BurningBlaze here! New account! I was really hoping he would be voiced! Luckily I have until Act 3 begins to buy him! 😉
