Where Did THAT Come From – Softball Burns

Hey hey tap ballers! In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?

Tap Ball Community Prize Changes

IMPORTANT: I don’t know how I missed this initially…but the price of the sports balls has been GREATLY reduced.  They’re now down to 40 ico_june2015_amateurbucks_md so now there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t be participating…at least a little bit…in the Community Prizes..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just like long time Tappers thought (and I mentioned yesterday in the Community Prize Post)…EA has made some changes to the Community Prizes!

The first prize of 10 Donuts, which initially required 110,800,000, has been dropped to 3,266,000!

We’ve also got another prize that’s been added…1,000 Amateur Bucks.

I’ve got to do some digging to see what/if the rest of the prize amounts have been dropped, as soon as I have the info pulled I’ll update this post.

Update: The chance for the Sports Ball to drop one for you to actually get in your town has increased from 20% to 68%.  So now the odds of one of the balls in your town adding to your account to drop again are now up to 68%

Until then…for all those that doubted, keep in mind when we say these things have a way of working themselves out…it’s from experience that we know.

What do you think about the Community Prize changes?  How about the additional prize?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!


Tap Ball Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 1 Alley McBalls

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you ready for some Tap Ball!? Tap Ball is the newest sensation sweeping the streets of Springfield.  A game invented by our very own Homer J Simpson!  In the Second “Act” of the Tap Ball Event (funny they’re called Acts, really they should be called Periods like Hockey.  Oh EA, I thought you knew sports 😉 ) you’ll unlock Tennis Marge, FIT Milhouse, unlock Community Challenges and continue to challenge your friends and neighbors to some friendly Tap Ball competitions!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts (again, should be called Periods EA…), with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Hats (ico_june2015_hats_01) to unlock each prize!  The First Act 2 prize awarded at 5,800 ico_june2015_hats_01 is Alley McBalls, a new bowling supply store for your Springfield!
