And before I get into the nitty-gritty of the breakdown, I just want to remind you that I compare each event with similar previous events.
So for Clash of Creeds 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 now onto the breakdown…
So comparing Clash of Creeds to other multi-events, and reviewing it in the same light…
I thought this one was really good. Not the best event of the year, but it was still really good. While some prizes were lackluster, most of them were pretty good. And as always the dialogue was two enthusiastic thumbs up.
Let’s get into the Good, Bad, and Ugly…
-Incoming broken record talk…once again the dialogue stands out as the best part of the event. The writers are really putting in solid efforts in the writing and it’s not going unnoticed. I really enjoyed, not only the main questlines, but each characters individual questline. And I really enjoyed how a lot of them intertwined with each other…specifically Yahweh and Moses. That was probably one of my favorite ones.
-Free characters on the prize track. I’m always a fan of full characters on prize tracks. Of course I wish there were more free characters…but I’ll take 2.
-Animations. The animation were a lot of fun with this event. Andre’s and Sexy Santa Marge’s stand out.
-Easy to finish. As always, these multi-events are pretty easy to finish. Which makes it nice during the holidays, when you have other things going on.
-Santa’s Wonderland tickets in the daily challenges. This was a nice bonus with this event, especially given that they can be convert to donuts. 3 donuts/ticket…equated to a lot of free donuts.
-Yes, there was snow in Springfield but no snow was falling! I genuinely miss this aspect of the winter events. Snow used to fall across the screen and it has been missed over the last few years.
-Yahweh’s donut earning tasks. Yes, it’s great they added a character that could generate donuts…but there are a lot of flaws in this one. I don’t mind doing a required set of tasks, in order, to generate some donuts…but there are just too many tasks and too many steps with this one. It takes WAY too long to generate 7 donuts. So 52 hours for 7 donuts. Just not worth it.
-The glitches when the event ended. I think there were some things EA didn’t really think through when it came to character tasks. Loads of tasks were used for the Santa Wonderland tickets, which was awesome, but once the event ended and the opportunity to earn the tickets ended a lot of those tasks disappeared. They should return once the update to remove the snow from the game appears in the app store, but still it’s something that seems like could have been easily avoided if EA thought it through all the way.
Overall I give this event a B+ . For a multi-event, it was good. Some flaws, but overall a good event.
