Kirk and Luann Skins available

Prev13
Do they do anything besides increase the payout for the Adult Halloween tasks?

    I guess we'll see as the day wears on. My official counter offer is 10 donuts for Kirk & 15 for Luann, and then the common refrain of "Where Booberella At?"

    Really? Seems a weird place to draw the line. I bought them straight away....

    Not interested, Luann is already premium, and Kirk has an 8 hour premium task. Way overpriced. Plus, after buying the Martin skin and only getting a 4 hour task length, I'd prefer not to get burned again.

    80 donuts for a skin for a 150 premium character??? MMm.. yeah.. pass.. The skin for Kodos is only 40 and "she" was premium and is now free!!

    I think you misplaced a decimal point there EA.. :oops:

    Odd that i only saw Kirk in my store this morning with the announcement of one new item.

    But really, 80 more donuts for the skin, after busting my **** these last two weeks to earn enough donuts for the cracker factory??

    I guess I'm not getting squirrel Luann. Boo.

    Just another reason why EA will never get real money from me. I won't feed their greed.

    I'll just visit Neo and my other favorite completionist neighbors to enjoy the new graphic.

    Oh well...

    It's just the price, for me. I only have 225 doughnuts and I am waiting to see what Act 3 brings.

    Luanns costs 80 donuts.

    Wow, considering the only material benefit to it is that it gives more event currency, that is crazy expensive for a outfit for an already Premium character.

    Depends. If it's a cheap skin and it's premium, I take notice.

    If the skin does something special (like Witch Marge or Monty Moneybags), I take notice.

    Unfortunately, that rarely happens and those donuts are usually much better spent toward an actual character.

    I just read the walk through for the dialog that goes with these skins, and there's opportunity for some really funny scenes. Like this 24 hr task of squirrels chasing Kirk.

    Please post some screen shots of any outdoor tasks you can, for those of us who won't be buying the "skin" skins.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have to agree, both of these skins seem rather overpriced. Remember the skin costs during the Stonecutter's event? I think the Frink skin was 15 donuts? I know that Dr. Hibbert's cost 60 skins, but that made him into a premium character while wearing it. I was hoping for something similar for these skins. The Luann skin should be between 15-25 donuts. If the Kirk skins jobs payout at premium rates, then I could justify it being more expensive.

    Can anyone answer to what the payout increases to with Luann's skin on? Because I already noticed that Witch marge pays out 36, instead of 24, at Everscream Terror 8 hour job, while Luann pays out 48 now. So I would wonder if it increases over that?

    Complete ripoff. The prices are what a lone character with no building should cost. Who the hell determines what price to set for premium items?

    They are in the money-making business, so they will look for strategies that earn a maximum profit. Apparently crafting and charging a premium price for most new items is working out well for the company.

    Agreed.

    It seems EA has switched strategies. Instead of enticing players to become premium, they're trying to wring the juice out of the players that are already premium.

    If you offer the Luann skin for 15 donuts then you're trying to entice the player to buy Luanne knowing that you can get a helpful skin for not much more. By charging 80, they're targeting the premium players that already have her.

    I'm sure theyre aware of the ratio to first time donut buyers vs return donut buyers and have started pricing accordingly.
