Mapple Store & Giant Mechanical Ants

Remember the hundreds of posts assuring us that the Mapple Store would never come back?
Positively no way. Just not possible. It was only possible because the game came out on iOS devices first. Etc.

Funny. Why would you assume EA doesn't want our money?

    Did it cost donuts when it first got released?

    No. It was one of the prizes for the 2012 Christmas event. All we need now is Steve Mobbs as a playable character

    I wish there were one ant that was in game cash but not that upset. Not something I have to have. The Mapple store, on the other hand, was a no-brainer. I plunked my 90 donuts down and made a space for it in Springfield Heights. One of the few premium buildings I have bought that doesn't have a character attached to it.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be getting them all too. Why not, eh?

    I don't have the mapple store and I am kind of unhappy it is back. Certain items need to be retired as milestones. The mapple store was easily the rarest building in the game but now its back... Well I guess I shouldn't of expected EA to care about stuff like that though because to them releasing milestone items behind a paywall is $$$

    Remember the hundreds of posts on here begging EA to bring that old Mapple store back?
    There were many, who believed, it was in fact possible if they just wished upon the Great Pink Sprinkled Donut.

    Funny how EA listened to both sides, and sold it to us anyway! :D

    Sorry jukan00, I couldn't resist! :lol:

    Yes, that was also a point commonly brought up in the argument that it would never return. Because at the time the Mapple Store, Try N Save, and Barney's Bowlarama all became premium, but then only the Mapple Store was removed. It was the only building they ever treated that way, which was unique. But clearly this did not prevent EA from releasing it again.

    After reading that I bought all four ants and they're attacking the school as we speak. It's awesome!!

    Trying to figure out where i'm going to put the ants when they're done though

    Not at all. I'm in complete agreement with you. :)
