Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Spending actual cash on donuts for an item is once again here in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a limited-time, item to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these items for the event itself. You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free. These cash-for-items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.
This time around we’re being offered Mr. Plow’s Plow, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around. While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of the plow and anything else you might be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy…
So what is the deal? When you can find it in the Currency Tab of your Store (also by hitting Get More)…
Basically, spend $9.99 on a Tray of 132 donuts and you get the plow, a decoration.
And yes, for those outside of the US I know my price is probably lower than yours. EA only charges 9.99 USD for this package…anything over that that you are currently paying goes to Google/Apple/Amazon for Tax and Duty etc. EA only collects the 9.99.
Just going to put this out there now…this should NOT be offered at the $9.99 price point. At best this is a $1.99 item, in my opinion. And I honestly don’t even think it’s worth that…pretty big disappointment…
So here’s a breakdown on Mr. Plow’s Plow…
-Decoration for Springfield
-3×7 in size
-Improves tree-hugging +200
-Can Be placed on grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
-Animated when tapped, lights turn on and exhaust comes out
-No task associated with it
-No dialogue associated with it
-Doesn’t do anything beyond the minor animation when tapped
I know I don’t normally give my opinion on these type of items, but it has to be said. This one is a HUGE disappointment. The animation is weak, the price point is high, there’s no bonus % associated with it, and there’s no bonus dialogue. Don’t waste your money on it, I wish I didn’t. (and I only purchased it to do this review)
That’s pretty much it on Mr. Plow’s Plow.
