A squid walks into a port and says….

Wow, if that was actually a joke it’d probably be one of the dumbest ones ever… kind of like one Horatio McCallister would tell at Floppy’s. (“The Bart Wants What it Wants”, S13:E11).

Animation Lag/Game Crash Issues

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With the new update for Easter removal it appears we’re seeing some lag issues with Animations.  Also, some iOS users are reporting that their game won’t load (they just get the spinning donut).


Here’s the deal….it seems as if this is hitting ALL Platforms/devices.  Android and iOS users alike (not sure on Kindle…so maybe I should take back the all? 😉 ) no matter what device/version they’re using.  While we try to work a little Addicts magic and see if we can figure out just what the heck is going on you guys can do something too.   Continue reading

Well it looks like EA has decided to remove Easter once and for all.  TSTO v 4.8.1 is here and it looks like it’s just the removal of Easter!  Similar to what we all experienced after Christmas, where the app store update simply removed the previous event & brought nothing new with it.

Here’s what the app description says:
“The bunnies have gone the way of the snakes and fled Springfield.  All that’s left are piles of spoiled eggs, heaps of burnt hair and a ton of droppings – Springfield may never smell the same again but at least those pests are gone!
Stay tuned as we have more Tapped Out characters, quests and donuts coming soon.”

Does this mean we won’t get an update?  No.  It just means that EA decided to simply remove Easter today and there should be another update on the horizon.  My guess is we’ll either see an Episode tie-in tomorrow (Wednesday) or another update on Thursday.

For now, if you’re sick of Easter, head on over to your App Store and download the newest version of TSTO.  But if you want to try your luck, until they force you to update, at zapping a few more bunnies you can do that too.  Just don’t update until they force you too.

Good news tho.  If there are a few items you didn’t yet purchase but were hoping to get…you may be able to update after all as not everything was limited-time.   Continue reading

My Eggs-perience Part 2: Who Prevailed the Completest or the Stubborn One?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, here we are on the morning of the end of the Easter Event.  Will it finally be over today?  Or will EA extend it, with out letting anyone know?  Will the items be up for sale after the event is over?  Only EA knows the answers…but we should all know in a few hours.

In the meantime…have you been following the advice for the end of Easter?  Are you ready for what comes next?  Or do you still want to stay in Easter mode for a bit longer?  Have you made one last push to get those last eggs and see if you’ve won what you most wanted?  Or have you completely given up?  And the final, and most important question, did you break down and spend donuts in the 11th hour?

When I last left off my Eggs-perience tale I had detailed my adventures in egg-getting during this Easter Event, and broke down the struggle I was having between the Completest in me and the stubborn side…who did not want to spend a single donut on eggs.  The Stubborn side was winning…up until yesterday morning, when the Completest took charge.  I managed to acquire all of the items, while spending a few donuts, except for the one I coveted the most….Father Sean.  Which is ironic because pretty sure the 10 Commandments say “thou shall not covet thy neighbor”.  But as a Catholic AND a Completest how could I not covet Father Sean?!

I left it yesterday morning with the stubborn side regaining control, and the refusal to spend anymore donuts on eggs….for now.  So what did I do?  How did I fare in the final hours?  With just 11 Gold Boxes till the magic guarantee number, would I break down and spend just a few more donuts?  Let’s see who won in the end the Completest or the stubborn one….
