It was around this time a week ago that we began to get the first taste of the very unexpected Stonecutters Event. By now, all of you will have had plenty of time to mess around with it and figure out what you do, or do not, like about it. Here are my thoughts on the event:
This is by far the best event they’ve released in Tapped Out and in my opinion, surpasses the 2013 Halloween Event. After Easter I had kind of lost interest in the game because it was such a badly executed event that I really wanted to just give up, and only for this blog, I would have.
But now, I’m glad I didn’t, I feel that EA really listed to what the players did and did not want when it came to planning and then implementing this event. Here are just some of the things players wanted that EA listened to:
- No wheel
- Nothing is based on chance (Easter Anyone?)
- A good mix of freemium/premium items
- It’s an event based on one of their most memorable episode
- Currency is easier to obtain
- They went back to the old prize-giving system
All in all, I love this event and it has restored (some) faith in EA’s ability to listen to their players and deliver great game updates. I for one, can’t wait to see what happens next, I’m thinking mini Fourth of July update? Anyway, I’ll keep you posted!
