    yes I am considering buying Springy.

    He's fun for the first few days. Then he's almost universally stored.

    Any guesses on the final prize? The picture for it is a checkered flag, so i'm hoping it is the Springfield Speedway. I even put my 30 flags in a square hoping to place the Speedway in the middle of them. Fingers Crossed!
    I think it is the Speedway but I thought the 4th one was. I think it Go-Karts for Krustyland!
    Sad thing, you probably can't put it in Krustyland

    I'm having a tough time deciding on what, if any, premium items I buy, I'm afraid I might just end up finding whatever I get a waste by the time we get a supposedly huge update on the 16th.

    The three things I can't decide on are:
    Cristo of Springfield- I like the look of it and might be fun to try and incorporate into the town but is most likely to be dumped in inventory if space/item limits catch up to me, and it doesn't have a multiplier as far as I'm aware.

    Country flag bundle- As already stated it's the best donut:multiplier ever but it's a space hog too and I already have a lot of multipliers either hidden or thrown in the corner already.

    Lugash is the toughest choice in this update, I will want to get him at some stage but I have a lot of other cheaper and more desirable characters I want first. Do I get him now and save 40 donuts in the future or should I act as if this deal isn't even here and carry on buying them at the rate and order I already planned?

    And ofcourse there's the chance that Gil will make an appearance with something desirable too.

    I'd appreciate any opinions and feedback, thanks in advance! :D

    Don't buy Springy. 60 donuts for something I immediately put in storage. I wish I could release all my NPC in Krustlyand.

    okey. brace yourself for when neighbors bust out with like 8000 flags
    1000 donuts would buy you a 150% increase. Not a bad deal.

    "Cristo of Springfield- I like the look of it and might be fun to try and incorporate into the town but is most likely to be dumped in inventory if space/item limits catch up to me, and it doesn't have a multiplier as far as I'm aware."

    It does have a multiplier. I haven't checked what it is yet.

    The other bundles are pretty good deals. The golf course was originally 100 donuts, if you recall, but this bundle comes with a boxing ring (0.5%), a tennis machine (0.5%), and a t-ball stand (0.5%). Okay 125 donuts is probably not great for 2.5%, but I've been wanting the golf course for my country club.

    Flipping heck. Did they have to give us 2 updates at the same time. Couldn't they have given the mono one some other time. And now I've read we are susposed to be having another update on the 16th according to another thread. Come on EA slow down a bit. Freemium players must be going out of their minds trying to get what they want with what donuts they've got without all these updaets at once especially limited items. Spread your updates out a bit.

    Imo since the level updates were taken away and now all these updates are coming thick and fast the game for me doesn't seem as fun as it used to be.

    there was another individual golf hole item you could buy in multiple units and arrange into your own golf course. unless this is the same thing and the pic shows all three units. don't know. the 75 donut statue is priced like a 2.5% multiplier item, but again I know nothing for sure. I'll be staying away from both items. Another set of tire obstacles would feel like a ripoff along with a bunch of garage sale junk, and the statue doesn't sing to me.

    To be fair, the Monorail is a permanent element of the game, it isn't a limited time event. And the requirements were also significantly lowered.

    The last thing is weird. Go kart track becomes like the sf downs race track
    So it gives the item before that the ability to race? or its a whole different track than the go karts before it, and only that gets the ability to race?

    I know what your saying but this could have been done some other time.

    I just bought the set of 30 flags - went from 304.55% to 312.05% :D Awesome!
    They go into your inventory, so they have to be placed one by one.
    Had a look in the shop after I purchased them, the offer is still there to buy again too.

    Thanks for confirming this.

    I'm definitely going to buy, but I need to figure out how many sets! Sweet deal!

    Couldn't disagree more. Pacing of updates has be great IMHO. The monorail update is permanent so what's the hurry? The games should only take 3-5 days or so leaving another week or so for downtime/catch-up. Keep calm and tap on...

    So a big event and then 2 small ones (mono being an updated version) seems good? I say no. In the past we used to have down time. I would like to have down time brought back.

    Dammit, EA. The trigger character should always be pulled out of their current task to start the event; you do it sometimes so why not every event? I gotta wait 20 hours for this thing?

    i think there will be plenty of time

    Oh I know it, but I'm impatient. Grrrrr :-)

    I get the sentiment 'cause a little 'standard' time in game is always nice.... but looking at it from the flip side, they are in this to make money, so if they can keep the constant flow of limited time items/mini-events/major events rolling in one after another, maybe some of those freemium players will break down and spend some real $$ on donuts to get the content....

    anyway, no one says you have to participate in every update... make your own downtime if that's what you want and just play...
