Best way to spend Amateur Bucks?

Personally, I don't see any benefit in upgrading my players. Mine are all at 2.5-3 stars

    I've just been letting it accrue.

    I don't care too much about building a stadium with these ridiculously scaled bleachers.

    I dont care about upgrading the players beyond 3.5 stars when I have so much tonic coming in.

    I would spend it on recharges if I cared about playing more matches per day, but I don't.

    The balls aren't even interesting. This event is not that appealing to me I guess.

    So maybe something will release later and I'll be glad I have the surplus saved up. Idk

    because it doesn't really increase your chances at anything except winning. But if you find someone with 3 stars you can still play tap ball. By not upgrading players you can craft items. I mean unless you don't like any of the items in which case it doesn't matter. Personally, I do like the items and I built a football field with bleachers behind the high school, and an obstacle course by my police station, and now I am currently building the soccer stadium.

    There is a piece about this on TSTO addicts as well. From what I have seen they feel the same way.

    Upgrading your players increases the collection area when you are tapping fans, so there is that.

    I am in hording mode with these. Upgrading players does not seem to be very productive, so I've stopped doing that. I do not like the stadium decos that much. The community prizes are totally nerfed up. So I will wait to see what Phase 3 brings. If the community prizes get straightened out and begin to look achievable, I will start dumping my bucks into the balls. If better decos are released in Phase 3, I will get those. Otherwise, I'll probably just buy a bunch of fences at the end of the event and use them around some upcoming building.

    Here's where I would mention my dislike of the event, but I am getting some skins out of it, including some classics like Pin Pals Apu, and Burns in his softball uniform, that I'm not going to really complain. Those have really been the fun part of the event.

    Really? It lets me store the fences. It makes you place it first, but once it's placed, you can go back and store it.

    I agree. is it really best that we all have an arms race to 5 stars? I'm staggered between 2.5-4 and am purchasing balls and saving my amateur bucks.

    Now to go play against Panopticnic :wink:

    As soon as the event is over you will be able to store it. Hoarder. :D

    Almost all event related decorations are like that.

    you CAN store fences, after you craft them instead of placing them just click the 'X' and they will be stored.

    Right. No point. The community prizes are unattainable anyways and if history repeats we would simply get all the community prizes "gifted to us" either through exponential reductions in participation required or as straight up gifts. It appears as if the counter is just for show...
