WHAT DOES THE BLOG SAY?

Note From Alissa….ahh today was the day of the update that wasn’t.  So I’m thinking we all could use a good laugh.  Here at TSTOAddicts Wookiee, Bunny, and I are a family (dysfunctional yes…but a family nonetheless!) and we’re never short of a good laugh when needed.  So I figured tonight would be the PERFECT time to share with you yet another one of our ADD moments providing us lots of laughs behind the scenes.  This one comes courtesy of the one, the only Wookiee! Enjoy….

Hey there Addicterinos!

So… I think I’ve established that every once in awhile I am a bit silly and maybe a skoshi cray cray just like Bunny Foo Foo.  Nowhere is this more apparent than when I’m creating stories in my town or turning songs into TSTO jokes.  I don’t often push these “creative” pursuits on to you but they happen more often than any grown man should probably admit.

The other day, while my entire family was asking questions about the game… I blurted out a la YLVIS, “WHAT DOES THE BLOG SAY?” to my Mom.  What resulted was me being a nerd and writing words to the “What Does the Fox Say” song that referenced our favorite game.  I shared with Alissa and Bunny first and, despite their head shaking at me, they were still thrilled with my silliness.  I made the decision to share this with all of you when I sang it to my kiddo with the instrumental for the song in the background and she said I was awesome.

Well, here’s what I came up with.  Even if you shake your head, one single smile makes it all worth it.  Before you ask, yes I have tried this out multiple times with the music.  It’s actually been stuck in my head for several days.

The basement is empty and she is far awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
Where’s the next level, is it close at hand?
Where’d the spoilers gooooooooooo (Love the TSTO) (Need the TSTO) (Loading TSTO)
Will we ever know? (Crave the TSTO) (Stuck in TSTO) (Addicts TSTO)
I want to, I want to, I want to know!
 

Well, there you go.  Another glimpse into the madness of the Wookiee.  I’m seriously considering recording this for posterity.  Until then, at least it’s here on the site for others besides my poor family to enjoy.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

Update is Here For All

1:00pm (est): Update has hit the Android Market.  Check your Google Play store for the update.  If it doesn’t show right away be patient, it will.  And again this is not a Level/new content update.  This is just an update to remove Christmas/snow from the game.  So you do not have to update right away.

12:50pm (est): This update has just removed Christmas my fellow tappers.  Not sure if EA has an in game update planned for later today (just to keep us on our toes) or later this week.  BUT (as CGuy reminded me) if you are close to the 30,000 gift card level DO NOT Update.  You will not be forced to update and you can still achieve the last prize.  There’s nothing new in the update (except no snow and melted snowmen) so if you’re close to hitting 30,000 don’t update the game my friends!  

12:40pm (est): It you’re playing on an Apple device the update is here! Check your iTunes store for the App Update!  It’s installing as we speak on mine!

Android users…my phone is standing by waiting the update!  I’ll let you know as soon as it’s here…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

So we’ve been seeing quite a few questions in the comments this morning all pertaining to….WHERE’S THE NEW UPDATE?!!  So I figured I’d take a few minutes to give you the skinny on the update/Christmas removal/Married to the Blob Episode Tie-In removal…whew not so skinny huh?

UPDATE 9:00AM EST 1/15/14: For those Tappers needing help with the “NOT MY TOWN” Glitch, Friend Management (iOS Devices) & those who did not update their device out of Christmas in hopes to get the last of the Christmas items…we now have 3 posts dedicated to those three things.  Here’s where you can find them:

-If you’ve logged into TSTO after updating and realized “HEY THIS ISN’T MY TOWN!  WHERE’S MY SPRINGFIELD?!!!!”   Check out this Troubleshooting Post from Bunny (she’s wearing her nerdy glasses in this one!)

-If you’re playing on iOS and are noticing all the changes to adding friends, deleting friends & how Origin looks in TSTO now…check out this post for all the ins, outs and how-tos of managing Origin in iOS now. 

-And finally…if you haven’t yet updated out of Christmas (in hopes to get those last few items) and are looking for friends to help you that also haven’t updated out of Christmas check out this post.

Troubleshooting 101- Contacting EA

Update 7/27/16 (from Alissa): Here’s the current direct link to contact EA: Contact for TSTO.  Sorry this is the US link, but I believe it should help even if you’re in another country.

Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!

For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well.  Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol.  It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise. 

Sample 2
