Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s event time in Springfield! With the launch of Itchy and Scratchy Land, summer can officially begin for the residents of our pocket-sized towns! Of course, an all-new event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
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 Tina Ballerina and Itchy’s 70’s Disco to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this funky combo to your town…
Character: Tina Ballerina
Building/Decoration: Itchy’s 70’s Disco
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +5
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier
Leaves stores July 11th
-Comes with a questline, every questline task earns event currency
-Can staff rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land
-Another item for Parent’s Island (if you’re making one)
-Tina will use the Disco and it’s animated when in use, laser light show on the front door.
-Outdoor animations are basically the same
-Pricey for a one-off character/building
I don’t think it’s an awful buy, and this is a premium combo I picked up. I like it for the Disco (Tina is an added bonus). I wanted to build out my Parent’s Island and this is a way to do it. But it is a standard price for combos these days, and Tina will use the building. So it becomes a “if you like it, buy it” item.
I’d pass. Save your donuts and pick up the cheaper Park Engineer and another building.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’ll likely be passing. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
