    Fun! Now i have a cute little western area, and dirt to use anywhere in town!

    Yay dirt!

    And, rickety wood fences with matching gates!! Bonus!
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    Has to be the easiest event to complete that I've played, was generally enjoyable with a fun dialogue and buildings but it went on a bit to long for myself.

    It was way too long. No event should ever be longer than a month. 3 weeks max otherwise it becomes a chore.

    I found it way too hard to obtain all the prizes even with logging in multiple times a day. I only achieved all of Act 3 prizes sadly.

    The dirt and the theme were cool. Hope changes are made to Springfield Heights to turn into a complete desert.

    The good:
    - Dirt! Finally!
    - Snake finally has an alternate skin.
    - The Wes Doobner skin is nice.
    - Rock formations

    The meh:
    - Most everything else.

    At the risk of sounding more negative than I intend, I think I would rank this event as the second worst ever. I honestly don't really care about the Old West theme, though I think the theme was executed about as well as it possibly could have been. Even with the annoying caps, I still finished each act with 4-6 days left to spare, and then there was absolutely nothing worthwhile to do with the (almost) complete lack of bonut earning potential. Even while I hadn't unlocked all the prizes, it still felt like a massive chore to tap on the bandits to get so little in return. It was definitely on the meh side of the line, but it was pretty close to the "bad" line and very much feels like an event I could largely have skipped without regret.

    I think of the old west town like those fake old west towns some places have.
    To that end, I created a pocket that looks great, IMO

    I liked the rock formations and cave. All an all, a good addition to my town.

    To be fair...have they ever visited anything else in the show besides fake western themed tourist traps?

    I am so confused i cannot have thoughts: although there are bandits I cannot see if I have prospectors to drop to friends, nobody in saloon, store is closed, I can still see my available hats, guns, picks and dynamite but no way to use them!! WHAT IS GOING ON????

    It was a good event, IMO. I loved the theme and the look of it all.

    My only complaint is the Act "Finales" were kind of anticlimactic. I thought there would be more of an ending to the event as well.

    I liked it, though, as a whole.

    i thought it was good, but I generally like events and am happy for new content and something to do. I also really like my new old west section of town.

    I liked it, but I wish it would've been shorter. I always end up losing interest, this was one of the easier events so that added to the boredom

    Exactly. It's so ... The Simpsons.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this event. I liked the prizes and thought that it being longer than usual gave ample time to collect everything.

    Bravo EA, bravo.

    I liked the prizes. I'm hoping for an expansion to the desert theme/area. Hopefully, we'll get a Badlands update soon. I thought to update was ok, the prizes really made it better. I'm hoping for some land at the top of the town to open up, so I can design with the new items.

    I have been playing since Whacking Day. I am a faithful twice daily player when there isn't an event. I am a freemuim player by choice. I'm at level 60. My Springfield Heights is 1.24 Billion. I finished the Wild West event and didn't use any donuts. I also finished 3 days ahead other than daily challenges. I was active every 4 hours except bedtime. Yes it does take time grinding away. I enjoy it. I love that TSTO is a free game with no adds. I LOVE how some much is given in this game. I have played many events now and watched and read how so many have complained. I play each event and look forward to every event. I love the storyline, characters and the graphics. I can't wait for the upcoming event!!!! Thank you EA!

    Wait a minute, Wes Doobner is only a skin? For who? I came in at the start of act 2 and didn't want to spend a million donuts to get him. I really wanted a stagecoach too but the cost was way too high.

    Doobner really wants to kill Bart. That should give you a clue.
