Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on and your cell phones ready to light up the night because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield! That’s right the rock fest has begun! Our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles on!
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 the Jazz Hole and BGM to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this heavenly Jazz duo to your town…
Character: Bleeding Gums Murphy
Building/Decoration: The Jazz Hole
Donut Cost: 165 Donuts
Jam Session Star Rating: Starts out with a rating of 2.5 stars (can be used for all 3 acts)
Leaves stores September 12th
-It’s Bleeding Gums Murphy, one of the BIGGEST requested characters in recent memory (this of course is after some other characters made the game), behind only Troy McClure (or any Phil Hartman Character)
-Big help with Jam Sessions, starts out earning at a higher rate than the others
-Pricey for a character/building combo
It doesn’t really matter what I say here, most of you that are premium players already picked BGM up, simply because it’s BGM. I know many of you (Patric included) were prepared to spend over 200 donuts for him, so to see him at 165 donuts felt like a steal and you grabbed him immediately. I get it. That’s why your a premium player. To jump on the characters you want. And truth be told, I got him too.
Here’s the deal on this one…while yes, it is Bleeding Gums Murphy he’s over priced. WAY over priced. Yes I know 165 is way less than what many of you thought he would be, but from a practical sense it’s over priced. And in recent months we’ve seen characters return at a discounted rate (or in Mystery Boxes). So personally, if I was a Freemium player I’d wait on BGM. The Sungazer combo comes with TWO characters to help with the event (Act 1) & it’s cheaper. That’s a far better deal than this one, if you’re buy it for a practical purpose.
Of course being that it’s Bleeding Gums Murphy I’m sure most of you aren’t paying attention to practical purposes and you’ve already jumped on him. BUT if you haven’t…I’d pick up the Sungazer duo instead and wait until the end of the event to get BGM. If you still have the donuts and want him, then get him at the end but pass for now.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I’ll be picking him up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good (or for now).
