Turbo Tappin’ Tap Ball: Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are in Act 2 of Tap Ball!  Seems like just yesterday we were making our way through Act 1 collecting those foam fingers and now here we are smack dab into Act 2 and collecting hats.  Oh wait.  That was yesterday!

Anyway we’re in the middle Act of our fun little summer sporting event..and with a new Act rolled out that of course means a new questline!  The Act 2 questline is nothing like the Act 1 questline…first off it’s short.  And second it really doesn’t do much for you for game directions.  But nevertheless let’s still breakdown Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough for Act 2…tapballturbotap

Note: Act 2 is a continuation of Act 1 and the questline is VERY short (3 parts).  There are also questlines when you win Springy, Tennis Marge and if you purchase Bart.  We’ll cover those in their own rundown posts….

And that my friends concludes the walkthrough for Act 2 of the Tap Ball Event! No too much going on for Act 2, questline wise.  So you can focus your time on earning more Amateur Bucks and playing Tap Ball.

  1. Hi this is doing my head in! How do i drop a ball into another springfield? Iv looked so hard to do it.. if anyone could email me back please itd be great thanks!

    • First, you need to unlock the option by following the questline in your game. Next, BUY or Earn a Ball, then go to a neighbor, once there you will see the Soccer Ball in the upper top right corner along with a Count number on it of how many you have. Tap it to drop one. Done.

  2. Hi blog just a quick Q on community prizes how come items are cost so much it’s going to take ages to get the prizes bet the season runs out be for I get the items tar Chris any options to make it go faster would help thanks 😀

  3. I am sure this has been asked and answered, but I couldn’t find it.

    How exactly do the balls work that you and your neighbors can share?

    I have got a few and shared them, but I don’t really see any reward for doing so. Is it just a fun thing to do in and of itself or is there a reward that I am not receiving or noticing?

    Thanks in advance


  4. I completed the Act 2 quest line but am still only getting hats for my first 50 friend actions – The timer on “other Springfield” has reset twice since I finished but still not getting 90. What gives?

    • We’re still investigating what’s going on. I think a patch hit shortly after the first one that dropped it back to 50 which accounts for the different numbers.

  5. Can someone explain the community
    Prizes i dont get it…it seems like you have to have a trillion points or something??? Im not following this part of the game…

  6. I’m excited to have Springy (even though he doesn’t play Tap Ball) mainly because I just watched the episode with him in it!

  7. Hey guys,
    I’m sure there’s a Should I Buy It coming, but I was wondering if Furious D is his own separate, playable character (both in tap ball and regular Springfield life) or if he’s only part of Bart’s Sporty skin? I guess I’m asking if I’m buying a character and a skin or just a skin. Thanks!

  8. Well, this is weird… I just found a football – American football, not a soccer ball – bouncing around my town! I tapped it and picked it up, but it didn’t increment my soccer ball count (probably because it wasn’t a soccer ball!), so I’m kinda at a loss to understand how it got there (who sent it?) and what its significance and/or purpose is…

    Anyone got any ideas?

    • That’s what happened in my town. Getting different answers from different players. Have to play around with it some more.

    • I had the same thing happen.

    • One of your friends sent it. I put a soccer ball into a friend’s town but it changed into a football when I dropped it in. I don’t know why it changed but at least it answers the question of how yours got there.

      • Mine was not either – It was a beach ball – the one I dropped in a friends town and the one that was dropped in mine

    So I haven’t seen anyone mention the fact that some of the characters have new catch phrases. I’ve noticed this with homer the most but I noticed Lou say something about his genitals, which I’ve never heard before. I assume some of the other characters have new lines too but I haven’t checked.

    • IrishboyChris

      Skinner and Apu too from what I’ve noticed.

    • Not sure… Lou’s saying actually is an original one he says and very hilarious. I know Flanders got new sayings with the Puritan skin. As I play muted often, I may have missed some.

  10. So when you buy the community ball for donuts and bucks, do you only get a once-off community ball that disappears right after you put it in a friends Springfield? My husband bought one and put it in my Springfield, I tapped it and got no ball in return or anything else. He got nothing else either. He thought I’d get the ball and be able to toss it back to him. Apparently he was wrong? That seems pretty steep for a once-off!

  11. I missed out on Mr Burns costume.. Not happy.. Is there anyway of getting it later now the foam hands have finished?? Loving the event though!!

  12. What is the point of dropping balls? I saw no changes

    • It completes the questline and let’s you move on. Also your way of contributing to the community prize count.

      • Um I found a ball in my town, clicked it, and used it on a neighbors town. It counted toward the quest, and when Homer was available started the next quest without me buying a ball. Although the second ball I found, when I collected it, counted as 0 balls, so not sure if the new quest triggering fixed that or not.

    • I didn’t see a difference in that counter. Even the town I just checked for first time this act had Sam epoi ts as the 2 I used to drop and catch.I also didn’t get another ball. To redrop

  13. I dropped a ball in my daughter’s town andere she got it right away. She dropped also one in my town but i can’t find it anywhere ? What can i do ? Andere what can we gain from it ? Thx

  14. Is anyone else only getting 50 caps when visiting neighbors?

  15. I have 2 Springfields. I threw the ball from town A to town B. I went to town B and found the ball and “collected” it. Now what? Nothing else? What about the prizes shown? How do we collect on those – the first being 10 donuts?

  16. Community Prizes for Act 2 of Tap Ball Event (this is awesome!) 🙂

  17. Help ? My daily training won’t roll over ? I’ve completed a the quest before the on for Milhouse and now since act 2 started , the daily training just stopped working. There’s only a message on the daily in training page saying I’ve completed the trainings when j haven’t. Anyone else having this problem ??

  18. 500 amateur bucks seems steep for the sports balls especially when trying to save up for other items and player upgrades. It kinda feels like EA is trying to make it so we don’t get all the community prizes and they can sell the leftovers for donuts. I remember that was their plan when the king homer prize was last community prize the first time we had community prizes for a halloween event a few years back and they were surprised that we unlocked it.

  19. Do you only need one ball or do we need a new ball each time? I’m confused on how this catch thing works

  20. Hi!
    Congratulations on your great work!
    just an observation,
    the quest name its not “Meet my Trophy Wife”
    the game says trophy LIFE!

  21. Are we definitely going 2 get the community prizes? Because at the moment we only have about 90,000

  22. It’s “meet my trophy life” not “meet my trophy wife”..

  23. my record is 92-24-6. I have 2 teams now so i have been playing a lot of tap ball games!

  24. anyone notice that when you tap fans they now drop amateur bucks?

  25. I’m thinking about focusing the amateur bucks on upgrading for a few days and then buying the soccer ball and finishing the quest line with a day or two left in Act 2. That way I’ll have higher level players earlier and should be able to maximize my amateur bucks earnings.

    Assuming community prizes keep going until the end of the event I don’t see a downside with this strategy (aside from having yet another item stacking up in the to do list), but if anybody sees something I’m missing please let me know 🙂

  26. I’m still confused on this event on how upgrading all my tap ball players to 5 stars will help me get more amatuer bucks in the end for crafting? So far that’s where all my amatuer bucks have went. And still only have the main 4 players to start with and now Burns for a total of 5 tap ball players.
