Oh Origin!! Server Issues

Hey there Hoppereenos, it seems everyone is LITERALLY jumping on the bandwagon after the Google Play Update for TSTO hit a lil bit ago. Since then, those pesky lil servers are on overload. Some are in their games, others not so lucky.

For now the status of the servers show as online, so I am wondering if there are isolated patches where more traffic is hitting. Hang in there. Some have been able to get in after a simple restart. It always comes back.  If not, well…they will have to deal with the wrath of one angry fluffy Bunny. Lol.





From the Mouths of Addicts: A Conversation with Kays_XO

mouths of addicts kays conversation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post is all about our second Tapper of the Month for May Kays_xo!

Back on May 4th we announced the TSTO Communities of Topix, Addicts & game voted two winners Archheretic1 and Kays_xo as the Tappers of the Month during our monthly Shout Out!  As part of the Tapper of the Month we interviewed both Archheretic and Kays to get a better feel for why they created their Springfields the way they did and some advice they might have for other Tappers when it comes to design.  We talked with Arch a few weeks ago, you can see that post here.  Now here’s part two of our conversation with our Tappers of the Month Kays_xo…

So without further ado let’s see what she had to say!  Continue reading

Turbo Tappin’ Level 41: Bernice Hibbert & Her Vulgari Aspirations

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well a new Level is upon us!  That’s right my friends Level 41 has arrived in Springfield and what an interesting Level it is!  Another Freemium female character has arrived, Bernice Hibbert!  Finally, Dr. Hibbert has someone to spend all his money again!  As an added bonus for the good Doctor…not only does he get his wife back, but his annoying Brother in-law also returns to Springfield!

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 41!

As we mentioned in the Level 41 rundown post Moe gets things rolling for Level 41 and that kicks off the need to build the Vulgari Jewelry Store, which takes 24hrs.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

LEVEL 41 is Here! (Updated and Complete)

UPDATED 5/22 9:30PM EST: Android users check your Play Store for yet another Play Store update for TSTO.  So far this again looks like it’s an attempt to fix some of the lag/crashing problems that have been plaguing Android users for months now….let us know if YOU notice a difference in your game.
Sorry iOS users…just checked my store on my iPad I don’t see an update just yet.  But I believe these patches for Android are repairing issues Android users have been experiencing for months (especially Kit Kat users).

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

2014-05-22 10.28.09

Looks like we just got ourselves an in-game update on our favorite Tapping Devices!  Which, shouldn’t be a surprise to you if you checked out our Open Thread/Reminders post last night…

LEVEL 41 has Arrived! (and hey we’re here for this 1 😉 )

More details as we work through them ourselves….but for now Moe gets this going in your Springfield!  

2014-05-22 10.29.06

If the Level Up!  Message wasn’t a clue for you, this Level is focused around Dr. Hibbert….
After some dialogue between Moe and Dr. Hibbert you’ll be prompted to build the Vulgari Jewelry Store, it costs $800,000 and is a 24hr build.

As always we’ll post more details below the fold for those who don’t want more details until they play the level…so WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD!

Where Did THAT Come From? Bunny #24601

Hey there Hoppereenos, figured since all of you miss the Easter Event soooo much (LOL, OK maybe just me) that it was time to finally put up a post that has been sitting in the wings for a while. That elusive and oddly named fuzzy flying animal.
