Should You Buy Robin Hood Homer?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Spending actual cash on donuts for an item (character/costume/building) is back 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 premium, limited-time, character 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 characters to complete an event.  You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free.  These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.

This time around we’re being offered Robin Hood Homer,  a premium costume for Homer, 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 Robin Hood Homer, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Wondering if you should add Harv Bannister and Tipsy McStagger’s to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hot spot combo to your town…

In-Game Update: Tavern Trouble (GOLDEN GOOSE REALTY IS BACK!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Springfield Enlightened Event.  And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)  I will admit, this caught me completely off guard.  I was expecting a week off…and honestly looking forward to one…but EA (as usual) had other plans in store for us!

As a little inside TSTO baseball: I will say, thinking about it, this does totally make sense to start up now.  You’ve got this 2-week mini-event, which ends July 28th, then a week off and a 5-week major event likely to start on August 4th.  That will likely run until Sept. 8th…and that’ll give you a week off, followed by a two-week mini-event, and another week off followed by Halloween starting around October 6th.  Of course, this is just my suspicion…and it lines up well for this…but we’ll see what EA actually does.

Anyway…running through the game files now, I’ll be back in a bit with more info on this post once I have it.  For now know that you’ll need Homer and Moe free to run 6s tasks, which will trigger the prize track and new items in your store.  At that point you’ll need the Barflies free to do the mini-event currency earning tasks.

Details below the fold…

The End is Near for Springfield Enlightenment…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Springfield Enlightenment Event Ends TOMORROW July 14th. 

Hopefully, you’ve all reached true Enlightenment, as we move onto something new in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.
