  1. Saturday Smiles ๐Ÿ˜€

    Act 1 and Act 2 have been fun courtesy of the Writers offering up witty Character Dialogue (especially Questlines separate from grinding for Event Currency). There’s quite a lot I agree with both Alissa and Safi , and I’ve got minimal constructive criticism. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    ๐Ÿค– Characters that battle it out in the Robot Rumble Arena is essential (Chief Knocka-Homer has a Permanent Character Task there, but we need more ๐Ÿค–’s with Visual Tasks – c’mon EA, don’t turn this into last year’s Wrestling Event where we had funny Wrestling Characters, but none had a Visual Character Task in a Wrestling Ring!) ๐Ÿค”

    I’m over ๐Ÿค– Decor! (very L-EA-Z-Y!)
    I’m not interested in NPC’s (how come Ralph-O-Cop wasn’t a ๐Ÿค– Character that could Visually Character Task against Chief Knocka-Homer? I’d have paid extra ๐Ÿฉ’s for that!) What does the Mr. Sparkle Factory have to do with ๐Ÿค–’s? (I don’t see anything from a Simpsons Episode that’s robot relevant with this Factory!) Why didn’t we get a Male and Female Lovebots as a Premium Combo? (at least one of those new Characters could’ve been Voiced!) ๐Ÿค”

    I’m happy with what Content I have that I can fit into my Springfield (a Land expansion would be appreciated). But for me to stay interested in Act 3 and Act 4, this Multi-Act Event needs to have ๐Ÿค–’s as New Characters trying to take over Springfield (๐Ÿค– Decor doesn’t do that!), or ๐Ÿค–’s as New Characters duking it out in the Rumble Arena (with a few Character Tasks at the Robot Rumble Studio!) It’s worth repeating that I would prefer a Testosterone Network Billboard vs ๐Ÿค– Decor that doesn’t do anything. ๐Ÿ’œ what I can appreciate from the New Content (the rest goes into Storage!) but step up EA, or I could easily skip an Act (like I did last time!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hey Tappers, let’s see if we can get 1,000 to subscribe to the YouTube Channel on, or before, Mother’s Day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Act 2 was a good act overall and the questline does a great job for setting up the transition from Robot Rumble to the robots taking over.

    The Robot Rumble Studio is a decent building and its much more easier to place and design than the One Week Wonder Films studio.
    Award Show Enforcement Bot is an okay decoration but it would’ve been better if it said “Prepare to be Annihilated” and shoots lasers.
    Ralph-O-Cop is a neat NPC/Pet but it would’ve been great if it had a task at the Robot Rumble Arena or could’ve had a task with Chief Knockahomer.
    Smashius Clay is the most disappointing prize of the act for a number of reasons:
    1). It doesn’t even have an animation or does anything when tapped.
    2). It would’ve been better as an NPC/Pet or a character with tasks (the tasks could be it creating trophies out of other robots, shooting bullets, fighting other robots and pampering Homer).
    3). It is probably the main antagonist/villain in the update so it should be more than just a motionless decoration.
    Frink Jr. is a pretty decent character with great tasks (I love the visual tasks with the Robot Dog and Drone, and him rocketing around). It’s also great to get another freemium Frink since (apart from Frinkenstein) Professor Frink, Baby Frink and Mrs. Frink are all premium characters.
    Mr. Sparkle Factory is an okay building but it would’ve been better if Love Bot and Mr. Sparkle had a permanent task there along with Homer’s task. It could be one of the locations Love Bot could “Hide From Patty” or something and Mr. Sparkle could have a task called “Do a Quality Check on His Dishwasher Detergent”.
    Love Bot is a fun character with some pretty decent tasks (I like her visual tasks of her Rebooting and Practicing Kung Fu) and its an interesting selection of locations she can go to “Hide From Patty” since she can go to Moe’s, Coolsville, Himeji Castle, The Peak Inn, Poppa Wheelie’s or Brown House.

    • Lovebot and Frink Jr have great Visual Character Tasks (their Questlines were both fun!) I agree that some of this New Content is dumb (and we know where that goes!)

      The Factory – doesn’t seem relevant to a ๐Ÿค– uprising, or ๐Ÿค–’s battling it out – I’m at a loss unless EA can’t explain themselves (and “we ran out of ideas” doesn’t count). I definitely appreciate what New Content that I made use of. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  3. So…wonderful to see your smiling faces again. Here to balance out the โ€œjoyโ€ from Safi. Not a fan of the whole robot bit. More decorations that donโ€™t fit…but the dialogue is funny. Wait. Isnโ€™t that the same thing you could say about the last two years?

    Oh well.

    Glad to see the live crew is still live!

      Does that mean you are not a regular viewer of the Thursday night robot battles on TV? It’s worth a look. Or maybe not.
