Elixir Wednesday Is Here Again!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in to let it’s Wednesday…and that means that non-addictive Elixir is once again available in your game for today only (well and every Wednesday until the event is over).  So for today only you can purchase MORE elixir for donuts.

Something new EA is trying with this event…and you can only purchase currency 1 day a week (remember Elixir is required to purchase things AND level up your castles BUT it will not unlock prizes for you…only Gold can unlock prizes)…and that day is Wednesday.

Elixir will be available for purchase in your store from 0800GMT today (Wednesday) and run for 24hrs (until 0800GMT Thursday morning).   More details below the fold…

Addicts How To: Buying Land

Hello hello Addictereenos!

I hope everyone is having as much fun possible with this very different Medieval Event we have going on in TSTO right now.  With new levels, there’s lots of new stuff that comes with it and this time… WE ACTUALLY GOT MORE LAND.  You asked and EA answered.

The last time EA gave us land was way back during Halloween 2013 and here at TSTO Addicts, we’ve been seeing quite a few questions about buying it.  Makes me think EA drug their programming feet so long we may have all forgotten how we bought land once upon a time.  Seeing a possible need for a quick tutorial, I figured I’d just pop in with a refresher for young and old tappers a like.  Click more if you need the help.

NOTE: There’s also an image of all the available land currently in the game tight at the start of the post if that’s your bag.
