Update 7/16: Looks like 4th of July has been removed BUT George Washington is sticking around for a little while longer. So if you didn’t yet make the purchase you’ll still have time to do so. You can find George in your Premium Menu (at the end of it) & it does still have a limited-time label on it. So it won’t be sticking around forever…but you’ll still have a little bit longer to make the purchase if you were leaning that way!
The cool thing is when you sign into TSTO today, if you didn’t already purchase Washington, a dialogue will pop up between Homer, Lisa & Lincoln about Washington sticking around. For those of you that didn’t get to see it I’ve posted it at the VERY end of this post (so those who don’t like spoilers won’t have it ruined for them) 🙂
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just a quick reminder…the 4th of July Event is set to end tomorrow (7/16) at 4am ET (8:00 GMT). So if you’re planning on, or on the fence about, purchasing ANY of the premium or freemium items..you have until 4AM EST (7/16/14) to make your decision and final purchase. As that’s when 4th of July is scheduled to end. Does that mean they’ll leave at exactly 4AM? Not necessarily…but do you really want to take that chance?
Need a reminder about just what will leave our games in the wee hours of the morning? We’ve got a shopping guide for you:
4th of July 2014:
(don’t worry if you haven’t finished his questline yet. As long as you’ve unlocked/purchased him you’ll be able to continue even after the event ends)
On the fence about these premium items? Not sure if you should invest the donuts? Weigh the pros and cons with these posts:
Rex & Lincoln
All American Apu
4th of July Festive Items (Lisa Liberty, Fireworks)
Here’s our advice….stock on up all of the free (in game cash) items you can get. Now the Liberty Bell & Lincoln Memorial are unique, only 1 per Springfield, but the flags are not. If you have the cash try to get the Bell & Memorial, as well as at least 1 flag. Because while some items do make a comeback you never know if you’ll see it again. So as long as you add it to your town it’ll be yours forever!
Also, a REMINDER from our furry psychics…based on the history of TSTO we could very well see an update tomorrow (or the next day or even the next day) so be on alert for something to hit our games. As a reminder don’t send your characters on 24hr tasks tonight (unless they premium characters, those you know won’t be needed to kick off an update)and try to have everyone free for the morning. As always we’ll be here to take you step by step through the rundown of any new update. 🙂
Will YOU make the purchase? Have you purchased any of the premium items? Did you enjoy the 4th of July Event? What do you think is on the horizon for TSTO? Sound off in the comments below…you know we LOVE hearing from you!
