We’re finally nearing the end of the Simpsons Wrestling event. Less than 1 week from today, May 13th, this event will finally be pinned. So after nearly 5 weeks, it’s time to go full nelson on this event and share some thoughts from this event.
Let me preface this by saying I’m holding this event in the same light as all other multi-events. I’m no longer going to do the “this event was ok, but compared to this event from 6 years ago it was terrible…”. I think we need to compare apples to apples at this point. We all know Stonecutters (from 2014) was the best TSTO event ever, and no event since has lived up to that greatness. So, we have to analyze this multi-event compared to other multi-events. It’s only fair.
So comparing Simpsons Wrestling to other multi-events, and reviewing it in the same light…
I’m a fan of this event. I think EA did a good job with the prizes and minimized the repeat items.
Ultimate this event consisted of 16 new prizes, and 4 returning prizes or dozen donuts. Not a terrible return on your tapping time.
Now let’s get into the Good, Bad, and Ugly…
-Prizes. 4 new buildings and 3 new characters (1 costume), not a bad haul for this event. Tofu Bell, Coot Society and the Springfield Center for Performing Arts are all nice looking buildings that will fit nicely into any downtown Springfield Area. And the Wrestling HQ fits nicely in with any industrial area of Springfield.
-Character animations. All characters with this event had some really amusing visual tasks. Rumbleina shaving her head, Dr. Bonebreak lifting cars and changing outfits, Rasputin playing with puppies, etc…all really hilarious and I appreciate the animation step up from EA.
-The dialogue was great, what else is new? Lol
-Decorations with the prize track aren’t the greatest. Most, at least in my town, will end up in storage.
-Lack of voiced characters. I get that it’s the norm for TSTO, but still disappointing.
-Mystery Box token glitch. Although EA fixed this, which is why it’s bad and not an ugly, it never should have happened in the first place. It’s been standard procedure in these multi-events to convert the tokens to donuts, there’s no excuse for it being left off of this event initially.
-Lack of animations for Wrestling Rings. EA really missed the boat with some fun animation ability. They could have had visual fights in the rings (like Superhero fights from past events) and really made it a little more exciting for players. The programming is already there…again just repeat the fights that happened during the Superheroes event. It really would have added a lot to this event.
Overall I give this event a B-. Decent, but missing some elements that could have made it great. And I took off a little bit for the donut/token glitch.
I know it has been a little while since I’ve shared some musings, but I finally feel like I have something to muse about. It’s been a long quarantine guys. A bunch of you have reached out so yes, I’m ok. Just doing my best to entertain the Little Addicts on a regular basis (and it’s getting harder each and every day…things that were fun for them a week ago aren’t so fun today), continue to do my job effectively, and run this site. Lots of balls in the air, as always, and just doing my best keep juggling them all.
On the plus side, the lockdown has allowed my husband and I to get some projects started/completed that we’ve been talking about doing for years. Currently, we’re working on finishing an area of our basement to give the kiddos a new playroom and give my husband and me a place to hide from the kids when we need it lol.
So, I’m good and I hope you all are too.
