Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character Week 5

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! It’s time for Week 5 voting of our Addicts Bracket Challenge!  
Once again….here’s Safi:

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of characters in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. From Homer’s college mates to his look-a-likes, from Bart’s crushes to Lisa’s idols, from four-eyed friends to four-legged pets, there is plenty of ‘untapped’ potential (pun intended). But which character do we really want?

We present to you the TSTO Addicts: Most Desired Character Bracket Battle…..

  1. Tough choices every week! Many of my top picks were eliminated early. :p

  2. These were much easier than before. But the one I’m going to start thinking about now is Bleeding Gums Murphy, or Ol’ Gil. That is going to be nearly impossible for me.

    • Yeah, the closer the gap gets between the seed, the harder it usually gets.

      So week 1 with 1 vs 8 (difference of 7) was the easiest.
      Week 2 with 2 vs 7 (difference of 5) was slightly tougher.
      Week 3 with 3 vs 6 (difference of 3) was even slightly tougher.
      Week 4 with 4 vs 5 (difference of 1) is very tough.
      Week 5, we’re back to 1 vs 4* (difference of 3) which is easier than last week .
      Week 6, we’ll get tough again with 2 vs 3* (difference of 1) which should be very tough again.
      And Week 7, the Conference Finals will remain very tough with 1 vs 2* (difference of 1).
      However, once we have 8 Conference Champions, that’s when the toughness might get extremely tough as you’re now comparing 1 of something vs 1 of something else* (difference of 0 in seeding, but comparing apples to oranges – (but if you love apples and hate oranges, these rounds might be the easiest to you)).

      * [granted only 75% of top seeds made it on to this round, so it’s not necessarily those seeds, but you get the idea.]


  3. This was tricky but not as tricky as before. I mostly went with the less obvious/ least popular options, I.e. I still picked Julio over the Rabbi, Laddie over furious George, Flanders’ parents over nerds, Roy over Wendell, Thistlewick over Mr sparkle. The last 3 could be very close because they were the hardest for me to choose from so I went with Alice Glick, Mary Spuckler and to choose between Mr Bergstrom and John was the toughest out of them all. So I picked John over Mr Bergstrom. Oh and I hope you do another one of these in the future. 😃

  4. I would have voted for Karl over the Rabbi, but as it is I voted for the Rabbi. (Although now that he’s dead in-universe, I have doubts that we’ll get him.)

    • Should have double checked, as the bracket Karl would have been in was actually the one with Mr Bergstrom. Statement still applies to that, though. I like Bergstrom a lot, but would have voted for Karl there, too. Oh, well.
