Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,
How are my favorite Addicted Tappers doing this hump day? Making your way nicely through Level 39? Racking up those FP’s by visiting your neighbors? Just a reminder, remember to help out your fellow neighbors and clear those handshakes! Are you in need of more Tapping Friends? Remember you can always find friends on our Add Friends Page (and here for ones who pledge not to vandalize you)…the best (and only way) to submit your Add Me requests on TSTO Addicts!
So with the introduction of Level 39 EA also gave us a 6th Social Currency Event Prize…E.A.R.L Lighthouse! So now my friends let’s break down this 6th…and final for now (at least until EA decides to add more)… Friendship Prize. Just want to remind you all with this update it’s important to remember to SLOW DOWN. There’s no rush to get the FP’s, so take your time and enjoy it! 🙂
Anywho…E.A.R.L is unlocked once you’ve unlocked Stampy AND earned an additional 5,000FP…so many of you should be unlocking it sometime in the next few days (depending on how many friends you have). So what happens when you unlock this Lighthouse? Does it do anything? Or does it just sit there? Where can it go? Is it going to take up MORE land in Springfield? Well let’s answer all of your questions by taking a closer look at E.A.R.L…
Once you’ve completed Friendship Level 5 and earned an additional 5,000 FP you’ll unlock E.A.R.L and you’ll see this message popup:
You can also unlock this via Donuts at a rush rate of 10 FP/donut. So for every 10 friend points you need…it’ll cost you 1 donut. So 500 donuts if you need all 5,000FP, 300 donuts if you need 3,000FP and so on.
Once you return to your Springfield you’ll find E.A.R.L in your Inventory. It’s a new decoration for your Squidport, and once you add it to your town you’ll see a little bit of dialogue appear between Homer and the Sea Captain:
Homer: Hey, remember that time I went crazy and made your ship run aground
Sea Captain: Arr, I do. The nightmares still haunt me every night. Sometimes I think it would have been better if I had died.
Homer: Yea, good times. Well, it’s been great catching up!
So, now just where can you put E.A.R.L? Well…E.A.R.L is a WATER ONLY decoration. Meaning it can only be placed on the water (so you’ll have to unlock the waterfront in order to place it). Of course this only makes sense because it is a Lighthouse! It’s actually a neat little decoration. It comes with it’s own little island so you can place it anywhere in the water and it makes sense being there.
It also has some animation to it. Since it IS a Lighthouse it does light up! When you tap on it light appears and flashes. Here’s how it looks in my B town:
Now that you’ve completed Level 6 and gotten your last Friendship prize, what’s next? Well it’s onto Level 7. What does that mean exactly? Basically the same thing it meant before only a level higher. You won’t accumulate more points (no FPs will pop out of buildings when you visit friends, or when you clean spray paint in your town) instead EA has come up with a different way to encourage you to keep visiting your friends:
Yes, that says TRIPLE the money. Which means…you’ll earn $90 per friend interaction when visiting neighbors, or $270/neighbor. Talk about a good way to earn some extra $$$. If you have 100 neighbors that’s $27,000/day you can earn JUST from visiting your friends! Pretty sweet huh? Before you know it that World’s Largest Zirconia will be all yours!
Well that’s in my Friends. What do YOU think of E.A.R.L? Have you unlocked it yet? Did you earn it via FP or did you spend donuts to get it faster? Were you excited they added it to the game AND to FINALLY have a decoration that can go in the water (and not take up precious land space)?! Sound off in the comments below…you know we LOVE hearing from you!
