Should I Spend Donuts on Rumbleina and Springfield Episcopal Church?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in Springfield!  We’re all getting antsy sitting at home, so it’s nice to have an update to focus on!  And highly amusing that it’s based on wrestling, when this may be how some of us are treating our families after a few months of quarantine!  😳 Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 Rumbleina and Springfield Episcopal Church to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this going to the chapel combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Springfield Episcopal Church
Character: Rumbleina
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Righteousness +20

WDTCF?: Rumbleina- “The Parent Rap” S13, E2
Chuch-“Simpsons Christmas Stories” S17, E9

Leaves stores May 13th, 2020

-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate (will earn it for the entire event)
-Comes with a questline
-Amusing animated tasks
-Ned has a 2hr task at the church, Monitor Overconsumption of Communion Wine (Will also take place at First Church of Springfield)

-Not voiced

Final Thought
Like most premium combos this is an ok buy.  It helps it’s the only new premium content with this event, but it’s not a bad pickup in general.  Nothing screaming “BUY this immediately” and nothing screaming “stay away!”  Just an ok buy.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I got this almost immediately.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at the tasks…

  1. I love Rumbleina, but the church ain’t doing it for me. Wish she came with a prettier or a smaller building. I just spent all my sprinkles on Rasputin and his amazing Basil’s cathedral and can’t afford to spend real cash atm. So I’m farming donuts on one of my helper accounts to get this badass gal! I want her to smack down and shave for attention in my city lol

    Greetings to my Neighboreenos! Y’all stay home and be safe. No problems here other than pollen and monster viruses running loose. Trying to decide whether to let myself splurge on sprinkles for the cause. Looks like this is going to be a fun lady character to spice up my Springfield!

    Happy tapping!

    • Greetings and hope you’ve been able to obtain Zyrtec + Flonase (allergy season is no bueno!)

      You won’t regret having another Wrestler Character in Game App (just maybe a regret there is no Wrestling Ring that’s like a Stage for a Multi Characters Tasks ruuuuuumble!) Another Church with Character Tasks and it’s better than Dumb Decor.

      So far, the Premiums have been good for this Event (Happy Tapping and Stay Safe) 👍🏻

  3. I managed to get the game running again on my 2017 tab 4 by doing the old favourite of uninstalling and reinstalling the game through the play store.
    No further problems here in a sunny Scotland. (Apart from lockdown of course).
    I would recommend anyone who can’t get on the game to give it a try.

    • If you ever have a persistent error with Login for the TSTO Game App, you can clear the Cache in the Settings Menu for Apps.

      Stay Safe 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ! 👍🏻

  4. 4 days now with the sever problems that EA clearly do not want to do anything about, it’s no wonder the player base on this game is bleeding out.

    • I wouldn’t say they don’t want to do anything about it. Remember EA and the people that work their life on planet Earth too. They’re experiencing the same work restrictions that everyone else in the world is. Perhaps it’s not something they can address from their homes?
      Or perhaps because the entire world is on their internet 24/7 these days there’s not much they can do at the moment.
      Have you tried hard closing the app And rebooting? It works everytime for me

    • I feel your frustrations, Bob (which is why I Tap late at night, or early in the morning – when there are less quarantined people on the internet).

      Many Tappers have vented their frustrations on TSTO’s Facebook page (probably a % have quit, and maybe a % of them will come back to Tap).

      COVID-19 has definitely offered up challenges for every Game Company (maintaining a Network, to offer Customer Support). If EA Staff are furloughed? I don’t expect any better until we are all back to normal (let’s all Stay Safe and hope for the best). 👍🏻

      • And it won’t be helping that Trump is currently in the process of extending the lockdown to at least August . : /

        • Where did you hear August? And that Trump is doing it? I think you need to find new sources of news information.

          Every state is doing their own thing (as dictated by the state’s Governor), with many states starting to open NOW. Georgia is opening as soon as Friday, Ohio opening on May 1st, Utah, Colorado, Tennessee, Florida, etc are all starting to open back up. The only states that will be locked down for awhile are NY and NJ, because that’s the epicenter at the moment. And even those states are talking May 15th. Even California and Washington are talking about reopening.

          No one said August.

        • Here in Las Vegas, I only see a controlled % reopening in mid May IF the Covid-19 Cases decline AND stays that way (those Businesses reopening will not offer the same atmosphere as before the pandemic – social distancing + medically checking anyone & everyone will be the norm via testing).

          The wait for a vaccine is painful, just as it is painful knowing anyone with compromised health runs the risks of getting ill and potentially dying. We still are learning certain tests may result in false negative I (or positives), spreading the virus to our mammal pets, being infected – never having an opportunity to be tested – recovering and still being a virus carrier.

          These are scary times, which I hope get better for everyone (vaccines, testing, an end to a pandemic threat) not just for the economy …. but to ensure the next generation has a better life ahead of them.

          Stay Safe 👍🏻

    Back around 2002-2005 I was a pro wrestler called ‘Sparkling Sammy White’!
    Some bad injuries ended my wrestling career.

    Loving this event! Though I wish there was a visual task in the wrestling ring.

    Rumbleina was an instant buy for me. We didn’t have a lot of women wrestling for our promotion, but the handful that were there were tough as nails!

    • Wow that’s so cool you were a wrestler! Yes I wish the wrestler characters threw down in the ring too. Like what’s even the point of having an empty sad ring..? Why can’t they be like the BeSharps guys singing on that stage we got from another event.. I think I will write a strong worded mail to EA lol

  6. Server is acting up again

  7. Anyone else getting an error message when they try to log into Tapped Out ??? Oo.

  8. TallSpiderCandy

    I’m happy with this event, especially during these trying times – thanks EA!! I bought this immediately, also love the tasks 🙂
    Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe ❤️ thanks Addicts for all you guys do to make our game play so much better 🥰 Happy tapping everyone!!

  9. Feeling underwhelmed by the hoh hum Decor Prizes in Act 2? (the Statue & Wrestling Ring don’t involve any Character Tasks, so into Storage they go!) got nada from the Token? (I see more everyday going grr over this!) then spend those sprinkles and get that Premium Character Building Combo (lol at the ‘shave her head for attention’ Visual Task! discover why that Springfield Episcopal Church is competition for Reverend Lovejoy’s First Church of Springfield!) 🤣

    Done with Act 2, ready for Act 3! 👍🏻

    • Not having any problems logging in from my side ( GB ), maybe it’s a states thing ?
      I agree, I thought the first Act was much better than this one. Only one character & that’s a premium. Would have been nice if the ring was interactive but that is asking too much from EA these days. Unfortunately the game has been dumbed right down so that even a five year old could probably play with no problem at all.

      • As a Game App, it has definitely been geared towards noobs (Long Time Tappers feel the ‘why am I being ignored here’ and often just bail on the Game App – that’s all on EA!)

        Personally? I’m still having whatever fun I can with it (if I’m not content with most of the Act Prizes? I make sure to spend the sprinkles on the Premium Character Building Combo).

        There is still plenty of Content in our regular Mystery Box for me to obtain, but the No. 1 Gripes – an they’re valid – are Item Limits and more Land (when you have it all? finding space for new Content is difficult without sacrificing).

        I think once more of the population is allowed out of home quarantine to safely go back to work …. there will be less on the internet at once (less Network snafus). Let’s see if we can slowly (safely) get back to norm.

        Hope you Stay Safe 👍🏻
