Mr Bergstrom, average cost of temporary characters?

Prev1
Hi all, a couple of things I was hoping you guys can help me with as I'm new to the game so am learning quite a bit really.

First of all these temporary characters that come on, how many donuts do they usually cost as I'm wondering what is a safe amount of donuts to save for these characters? I had no idea that the timer was the character disappearning completely, I thought it was a timer in regards to the offer on the character so it's a bit of a pain when the character goes and you didn't get to get him in time, specially if it's one that you're wanting.

Which brings me to the next part but can anyone confirm if Mr Bergstrom will be appearing in the game at all? He's one of my favourite characters and the episode Lisa's Substitute which his main role is among one of the most popular episodes of The Simpsons so I'm surprised he's not a character yet.



So does anyone have any idea in regards to this please and thanks.

  • temporary characters usually cost about 80 donuts for a character alone, 120-150 for character/building combo or 200+ in a gil deal. also, nobody kknows if mr bergstrom will make it into the game, but at this rate, we might be getting him (looking at you hollis)

    Ah ok, so it's best to save around 150 donuts then basically ready for when a character comes in? I really hope Mr Bergstrom comes into the game though, he has to have the sample of 'I'm Mr Bergstrom, feel free to make fun of my name if you want. Two suggestions are Mr Nerdstrom and Mr ... Bugger ... Strom' in his voice too haha :D

    I'm not sure what a gil deal is though? But from what I can gather it's best to save around 150 donuts for if a character you want comes in then right? :)

    a gil deal is a limited time offer with a huge pricetag, which may or may not return later on. the last gil deal we saw (i think) was 180 donuts for 3 playable characters, but there were also some buildings (like the bandit fort for 200 donuts without a character, or the golden statue from the last christmas event). you might be on the safe side with 200 donuts, but to be super sure you wont miss anything, stay at about 250-300 to have a bit of room in case something you really want drops

    an example for a non-returning item sop far would be duff gardens, which was bugged for quite a lot of players, and has yet to reappear
  • I see, well it's mainly the characters I'd want to be honest but if something really good came then of course I'd like it. I think it's kind of a pain really when they have the time limit and then the character disappears. I get that it's their way of making money but I think it's a bit forceful, specially to loyal players of the game too, the offer thing is great but the character disappearing I'm not so keen on.

    That said I think the game is awesome so there really isn't any complaints here for me in regards to the game, as I love it. Much better than the Family Guy one which was very frustrating really.

    I appreciate the reply by the way so thank you. I hope they do bring Mr Bergstrom soon, I saw you mention Hollis, is that someone who works on the game or something and do you think he will be coming soon? :)

  • Just stamp the ticket haha. Yeah he could appear too, he's only a pretty tiny character really in comparison but he would be a cool addition to the game too. Just stamp the ticket :D:D:D:D

    If Bergstrom appears I don't believe he will be voiced. If memory serves he was voiced by a guest celebrity and those characters almost never have a voice in the game.
  • Yeah he was, Dustin Hoffman. I've noticed with the game though they just sample the voices from the episode. Like Matt Groening and Sebastian Cobb etc...

    I hope he is voiced though, it's much better when they are :)
  • @RobbieGlover2K the character is temp/limited time in the store. Once you buy them though, they stay in your town for better or worse :)
    Most characters come back eventually regardless, but no guarantee they would be at a lower or rebated price
    You're good to go.

  • Thanks @spiritals148, it's much appreciated :)

    Correct. Only characters voiced by the main cast (with the exception of Groening) have voiced characters in Tapped Out.

    Completely off topic but I love that scene with the Juice Loosener lol. The part where Dr Nick says 'Not anymore' and then Troy McClure slaps his face as if it's mimicking the shopping channels or something lol

    "I can't believe they invented it" is classic Simpsons. Troy and Homer smashing oranges against their faces to squeeze the juice out still makes me laugh every time.
