Dear EA… A Valentine’s wish list from the TSTO Addicts

Hey hey hey! How’s everyone doing? So it’s Valentine’s Day and I hope it’s a great one for all of you Addicts. In the spirit of love and giving, I figured it might be time to post up some more requesterinos from all of you.

On 25 Jan 14 we threw up quite a list but apparently, you creative folks had even more ideas. In fact, 57 comments which made me smile big. Over at the Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA, there were 15 more. Wowza, can you say “EA should just make us their brain trust?”

Before the list starts, I think it’s important to note a couple tappers who got their suggestions in the game. Runicgem got his wish of Shauna returning.  Hey Silverdog77, happy some more limited-time stuff came back?  Fusionwerks wanted a way to organize their friends list.  Well, not the same but it is alphabetized so I count that as a win.  I’m not sure if OSebhlen was talking about gaudy pink fences when they asked for different fences but sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.  Mummie wanted an easy way to delete inactive players.  I think we all need to send her roses or chocolate for hooking us up.

Is EA listening to us?  I know most of us have had a complaint or two while playing but I like to think that our positive suggestions are a breath of fresh air for EA. We’re like TSTO Ghandi and trying to be the change we want to see in our digital world.

First off, I know most of you were thinking it but SquareBiz79 voiced that we need MORE LAND.  This especially would be important if EA keeps listening to all us crazies.  The list is broke down into buildings, characters, decorations, tasks, skins and gameplay.  Anything requested on the previous post is in red.

  3. I’d love to see episode tie-ins for the Lego episode and the Futurama crossover. Maybe a Lego version of the Simpsons’ house (also promotes the new Lego set) and all the main characters from Futurama and the Planet Express ship 🙂

  4. I’d love some more beach buildings, like those in Little Pwagmattasquarmsettport (where the Simpsons go for a summer holiday and Lisa tries to be “cool” to make new friends)

  5. I love the newish character finder, but I would love it even more if there were a way to find characters while they’re still on tasks. For example, I often have Smithers and Burns on joint tasks, but when I don’t and then I want to again, I need to figure out how long it is until whichever one is still busy (or not yet tapped) still has left for his task. I also wish that Smithers could have a task of his own that takes less than four hours.

  8. Re-release of some episode tie-in content. (Cool brown house, Mayan calendar) I know its prolly never gonna happen BUT I missed out on a lot while on vaca and would love to have another chance at that stuff 😀 when I found out what I’d missed, I vowed to never let my phone leave me again LOL.

  9. If we had ghosts, witches, aliens, snow monsters and even presidents from the past, I think we are ready for cartoon characters (the real Itchy and Scratchy) and comic super heroes (Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy)
