Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Apparently the recent Time Travel Event has caused EA to lose their calendars because a Pride Update has hit our games..a month late. Naturally with all event, mini or not, our stores are stacked with premium items tempting us to spend those sprinkles!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 any either the Pride Balloons or Rainbow Hydrants to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these prideful decorations…
All content leaves stores July 18th
Item: Pride Balloons
Cost: 10 Donuts
Earns: .25% Bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
What Does It Do?: They’re Balloons. They float, anchored to the ground. If you’ve finished the Balloon questline (tapping balloons etc) you’ll unlock various “skins” to change the look of them.
My Opinion: You get a set of balloons for free via the questline, the bonus % isn’t great at all. (if you were to spend 40 donuts (same price as a police car etc, that has a 2% bonus) you’d only get a 1% bonus on these. TERRIBLE bonus % return). Pass. You’ve already got them for free, not worth buying more.
Here’s a look at the various “skins” for them…
Item: Rainbow Hydrant Bundle (6 Hydrants/bundle)
Cost: 20 Donuts
Earns: .05% Bonus on all cash and XP each hydrant so .30% bonus for the pack
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10 each
What Does It Do?: Animated when tapped, water shoots out from the top.
My Opinion: Bonus % is TERRIBLE. Downright AWFUL. So do not buy these for the bonus %, you’ll be kicking yourself if you do. However, they are Fire Hydrants, and many of you complained you didn’t buy more back when the Fire event happened. So if you feel like your Springfield needs more hydrants pick up a pack or two, otherwise pass. So basically buy for aesthetics (and so your down won’t burn down) and not for the bonus %.
And there you have it my friends, the final premium round up for the Pride Event.
