Level 60 has hit, but it comes with elements to decipher. Possible spoilers and my first reaction after the break.
Okay, my first reaction is to be thankful to finally have level 60. There’s the geek part of me that worried about ending level updates on level 59, an uneven number (but it’s also a prime number). Then there’s the worrywart part of me that worried about levels ending. Well, there we go. According to the system message, level updates have ended with level 60.
That does not necessarily mean that the game is over or anything. It sort of feels that way, but realistically there had to come an end to introducing “main characters” (as the level 60 dialogue says). There’s still plenty of one-off characters and plenty of skins to offer for events, though.
This wasn’t the greatest timing to get this update while I’m up on only 3 hours of sleep. Fun! 😛
I think most people are going to be pleased to get Wise Guy. That theater is really great looking, too. But, strangely, no premium character this level.
The Gil deal that came with this update (which appears to have a timer based on when you start this update of exactly 7 days) is also another nail in the coffin that is Krustyland. It’s a replacement of some sort to Krustyland, by being able to build Duff Gardens inside Springfield. I don’t know enough yet to know if that’s to be taken serious or not.
Okay, my overall reaction is mixed. I agree with them that they should have figured out levels a long time ago, maybe ending at level 50 (in number; not because of which characters currently occupy those spots). I don’t agree in any signs that this game might end, because I’ve only been playing for a year and not three years like others have. Yeah, I’m talking about selfishness. 😉
It’s a bit disheartening to me. At the start of this act and now I’m feeling even less enthusiastic about continuing. I’ll probably get over it by the time I catch up on sleep again and as level 60 isn’t so fresh anymore.
For those who are planning to use the XP Collider, this might be your last best chance to take advantage of it. It’s my estimation that it’s better to use it at the beginning of new levels… Last level, guys. 😥 : 1 donut reward for each level. Yeah…that’s one-third as good as before…but I guess it’s something. Watch out for falling glitches. Maybe hold off on leveling up for a day…
