Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore! Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults. The soul of Springfield is on the line! So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Erik & the Dodgeball Court to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this ball slinging kid to your town…
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: 4% bouns on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Other Info: Can be placed on the grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores February 6th
-Comes with a questline
-Will Help earn event prize currency (his questline AND task to Assualt at the Playscape)
-Fun animated task, including a really nice joint one with Bart
-Pricey for a one-off character
This combo will help with the event & add a nice 4% bonus to your Springfield. Not a bad pickup. My only hesitation is at 150 donuts, it’s pretty pricey for a one-off character. If you can get past the price tag for the character, not a bad pickup.
Given the choice between Erik and Wendell, who are both 150 donuts and will both earn event currency, I’d pick Wendell. Because Wendell is more of a classic Simpsons character. So if donuts are tight, pass on Erik and save them for Wendell.
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 already picked him up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, this is one of those items that will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you. So try to make your final decision before this weekend…so that it’ll help you the most.
Here’s a look at his tasks…
Erik’s Permanent Tasks:
|Get a Squishee||1hr||$105, 26xp*||Kwik-E-Mart|
|Take on Bart||3hrs||$400, 110xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Practice Dodgeball||4hrs||$260, 70xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Hang with fifth Graders||8hrs||$420, 105xp||Springfield Elementary|
|Work on Class Project||12hrs||$600, 150xp||Springfield Elementary|
|Spend the Night at Bart’s||24hrs||$1000, 225xp||Simpson House|
*during this event 1hr, 3hr, and 4hr tasks payout event currency. 23, 136 and 90 etc. respectively. Also has a 2hr task to catch a movie if you have the Big T Theatre and 30m task to sneak ice cream (if you have Homer’s Ice Cream Truck)
Erik’s 3hr payout (cash) is a guess on my part. It’s based on doubling a 3hr premium payout.
