TSTO Anonymous: Fuzzy Thoughts About Burnout

With all the excitement of events this last few months… I’ve been remiss in holding our regular TSTO Anonymous gatherings. Arguably, the Addicts Open Threads acts as a meeting point for us to meet, commiserate, complain, joke, etc. but I enjoy the occasional chance to just ramble about the game with my favorite peeps. Lately, I’ve seen more and more grumpiness in the comment thread and I wonder if we’re folks are getting burnt out?

I know if you told me back in October 2013 that I’d be still playing this game years later I’d have probably checked your hand for a crazy stamp. But time flies when you’re having fun and here I am not only still playing but also writing about it. Loving The Simpsons helps me keep on keeping on but it truly is this wonderful community that makes it worth it and still fun.

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Deep Space event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading
