Holy crap that barrel is 40 donuts???? Worst update of all time.

I take the point about the price of the item Josh but don't yo get bored being the ultimate embodiment of Barts psychological profile.

    Hey josh :D

    I am sure you dont need me to point out that in terms of bonus boost it matches the very best you can get..... I.e 20 donuts per 1% boost :mrgreen:

    That said, I reckon it is **** and would rather buy another police car or burns limo!

    I don't get it. Are you saying I'm like Bart?

    There will be a free "Three Eyed Sushi Stand" in your inventory when the quest is done.

    Just wanted to give you a head start to figure out a way to complain about it.

    I think they forgot that in regards to the price of the new characters. That's a reasonable price for the other decorations. The Tire Fire is 40 and doesn't even give you a bonus.

    Not really. They made JoshJeerer a celebrity. Someone asked me if I'm sure they were talking about me. If they had just spelled my name correctly it would not have been a problem.

    If you want to work out the bonus boost given by premium items, you work out how many donuts give you a 1% boost. The barrell boosts xp and jobs by 2% and costs 40 donuts. This equates to 1% for 20 donuts. I have worked it out for every premium item and 20 donuts is the cheapest you can buy a 1% boost for. I havent got my list handy but I think the ambulance is the worst value.

    Its just my OCD :oops:

    Yup, i remember a while back someone figured that out when I was trying to decide what car to invest in. No ambulances for me, but then again, I don't buy everything.

    I think they purposely changed your guys names to avoid any sort of legal disputes. They made it obvious who they were referring too, but didn't want put in an exact name to the face since it becomes more a private issue.

    Which is why I offered you to change your origin ID to what they put it so it matches up, to continue with your business.

    At least they only got 2 letters wrong on your name.

    They only changed 2 letters on yours. Unless you count the first S being capitalized. The second s to a d, and the r to an x.

    Definitely agree with the change of meaning. But they were trying to be humorous about it though, and also (probably) for legal reasons didn't want to use the name as is. Also not trying to promote who you are and what you do, to the entire game base.

    This is basically highway robbery at this point. Did EA forget that SVT costs 30 donuts and Moleman/Kearny were 60 donuts? Why in god's name would I even begin to contemplate spending 40 donuts on an ugly giant barrel. And they didn't even give something free with this "update" (I'm using the term loosely since 1 measly pile of crap for 40 donuts does not constitute an update in my eyes). If this is a trend for how future updates are going to be, EA is even worse than they were before. And that's saying something. This may actually be the worst update ever given that it's not even an update.

    Technically this is the time released second half (assuming there is another update before halloween and that that isn't also time released) to the update where you got your shout out since there has been neither an in-game or app-store update.
