Weekend Update: August 17th – August 23rd

In a land of Myth and a time of Magic, Nerds gathered round a table eagerly awaiting instructions from the Dungeon Master.

The Elf and Cleric were all that was left…it was down to the last roll…the dreaded 20 sided die.

Just then…

  1. What quest do you have to complete to get bart and lisas castles? I’ve had them for 2 days now and can’t build them cause no quests have come up about them. Very frustraiting! If you earn a prize you should get it as soon as you earn it 🙁

  3. The idea I proposed popped up on Reddit two hours ago and there is an emerging agreement to use the hail ants sign as a ‘no defense’ signal.


  4. Dr who WS great tonight is

  5. Do you have a breakdown of the side events for Lisa and Bart yet? Did I miss them? Btw, in the short time I’ve been on the site, you all do a great job. Thanks so much for all you do!

  6. Bunny,

    I’m still trying to figure out my strategy for this event. It seems obvious that we’re all better off if everyone only attacks and never (or rarely) defends. It’s also much better to attack random towns instead of your neighbors.

    So it would be nice to know when you enter a random town whether or not they agree with these ideas and will allow their homes/castles to be destroyed. I thought a nice way to do this would be for the Tapped Out community on tsto (TopiX, Reddit, etc.) to agree on a signal we could use to communicate with each other. For example, we all agree to put a newspaper dispenser to the left side of our Barbarian Castle if we will allow our buildings to be attacked.

    I’m sure this has already been suggested myriad times, but there are sooo many comment sections to keep up with when a new even is released I haven’t seen it. If you guys think it’s a good idea, decide what signal you think we should use and let us know. We will all follow your lead!

    • Only problem I see with not defending is you won’t get your nerds from the castles. I can understand houses. If you have a solid set of active neighbors though, you can get a good payout from just attacking and defending regularly. We’ll be having a strategy post coming out next week. Not sure about a symbol but I’d be surprised if folks on the forum didn’t already come up with something.

  7. OK what a week and what a great update one for grinders and freemiums with no essential items requiring real money.(doughnuts to you and me)

    Question is when will Carl intervene? In meantime as Wookie suggested keep Carl on his nordic heritage task. Sign up here to this campaign…lol

    we have more land a new character something to spend ingame $ on and fun tasks great dialogue and a nod to the 3d and 2d designers with recycled castle and boxingham castle.

    great reason to visit and vandalise please note neighbours do your worst tap and attack

    Great start keep it up EA

  8. I personally am hoping for a Squidport themed Level 44 to celebrate the last ounce of summer. Monty Burns Casino please!

  9. I’ve got a little in-game update today. Do you have any idea why?

  10. CapCityGoofball

    Saw a post on the Tapped Out FB page about special troop replacement on Saturday (today). Any idea what that is about? I apologize if I missed that in one of the other posts, so much going on! :0

    • We saw it too in the release of the event. We are waiting for it to hit the games and go live (if we are reading right, about 2pm EST but not sure). Once it hits the games and we can verify the info we saw…we will post more on it. This looks to be a weekly thing like the Elixr sales.
