Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character Week 7 (The Sweet 16)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! It’s time for Week 7 voting of our Addicts Bracket Challenge!  We’re down to the Sweet 16…who will move onto the elite 8?  Vote n
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…..

  3. I voted for the Rabbi, Lewis, Laddie, The Nerds, G Wilma, Mr Bergstrom, Alison and Sarah. I thought Bleeding Gums and Rabbi K would be the two finalists but now its down to the end of the week. Some of the choices were not as hard as before because I felt the same for both choices like Wendell & Lewis and Alison & Samantha. It was a shocking that Bill & Marty lost to the Barflies and with characters like Gil, Jacques and Bea losing, I wonder who would win?

  4. Also, you should do another one for buildings! I think we all know Stoners Pot Palace would win, but it’d be neat to see ppls suggestions for buildings. Like the Box Factory,

  5. Notable missing characters and my top two: Troy McClure and Lionel Hunts. I already know what you are all gonna say about that but I think they should make a way in even if they are not voiced. It should be Bleeding Gum (as a hologram I think, like in the episode) vs Sarah Wiggum at the end.

  6. I personally like the pathetic, never can win nature of Gill, that’s why I hope he loses here. His role in TSTO is perfect, he pops in with an amazing “deal” which you ignore 90% of the time, denying him any success in life. Perfect embodiment of the character.

  7. Some of you are why we can’t have nice things. Good lord. It’s a meaningless poll designed to be fun and should create some great conversation. I wished I’d never started looking at comments again. I should have learned the first time I quit. This site is absolutely great, the comments sections section can be, but all too often isn’t. I’m done again.

  8. I love how bent out of shape people get over these polls. Lots of good characters in the brackets, so plenty will get the axe. And since we already have dead characters in the game, I’m hoping Bleeding Gums takes the donuts.

  9. I’m getting a little concerned over the passionate feelings that Are finding there way onto this site regarding this bracket voting. I love these Safi, I do, but we may need a disclaimer for the next one.

    This is a silly poll, something fun to do, but in the end means NOTHING, some people have voted multiple times (in the same conference) and some people voted just once. It doesn’t mean people do not want the characters whom didn’t move forward.

    When I vote I think about the character (of course) but also what building might come with the character or more importantly to me -Which Event will come with the character (no offense Safi but there are other event possibilities than the ones provided) and then when it comes to a stalemate I take in consideration the number of episodes And sometimes I vote for the character I’m just completely sick of people requesting Again and Again (we get it!!!) so I vote for that character and hope that by doing so EA will bring those into the game for a crazy amount of donuts and I can sit back and smile at the cost and personally say “pass”. (I’m exaggerating, I hope EA doesn’t really use this survey as a donut price point gauge, but I’ll be surprised if they don’t, if they haven’t figured the popularity of the characters on their own.)

    Please folks don’t move to another country.. I mean site just because you didn’t like the results from these posts. Don’t get frustrated over such a silly thing.

    Just let all this disappointment be practice for the results of a bigger election this year :p (Alissa can cut this bit out if she wishes) 🙂

    • I think some people are making the mistake of looking at it like a popular vote instead of what it is – a “sports playoff” like bracket. They think “How can character X not being in it anymore while character Y still is?!” Just like in sports, some teams (characters) can have an easy ride towards the end because they are facing up against easy teams. Some really good teams might not make it as far because they had to match up against other really good teams and only one of them can win and move on.

      I think after this is over, we should have 1 final bonus round where everyone can just rank the list of characters from most desirable to least desirable and then average out the results and see what happens.

      • With well over 100 characters starting out, I think I’d turn into a babbling puddle of goo trying to rank them all….I can agonize for 20 minutes doing a 10 minute market research survey when I have to rank just, say, 10 or 15 different items, lol! 😉

    • I was surprised when I saw this comment (and, later, association’s), because I haven’t seen anyone posting anything really seriously negative or felt like there was any hostility going on. I took most people’s statements about being “devastated” (or whatever) as being somewhat hyperbolic (especially since it’s not like this is a real contest that will determine what character actually does come back in the end).

      I think most of us has a character or two that we feel some passion for (and have expressed that passion), but I don’t see what makes you guys think there’s a problem here.

      (Ironically, I’d especially expect someone who goes by the handle “redsoxnation” to understand a bit about fanaticism for a game and for particular teams/characters in a game! I’m grew up in New York and have been living in the Boston area for over 35 years and I fail to understand the level of negative passion that gets expressed between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans. But, whatever….)

      • I can take most of the comments with a grain of salt but sometimes it’s helpful to see after a rant or emotional response to see a “just kidding” or a “:p” or a sentence to balance out the emotion that was expressed.

        I’ve been trying not to comment in these bracket posts because of fear of people misunderstanding my personal thoughts and feeling and in-all-honesty I think by reading some of the comments I have misunderstood and misinterpreted others.

        I have no problem with people making comments as long as it doesn’t cause such a reaction that turns others off to this great site or fear to comment themselves.

        I AM afraid of the Results of this bracket, not because I think my picks won’t win but other people’s picks will not and the even larger disappointmented reaction that will follow.

        So my first lengthy comment wasn’t so much an observation than a fear for the next round/results. So the request for a disclaimer, is still there.

        i wish Safi, or Alissa, can you settle my fears and confirm a disclaimer of sorts will be implicated, if not I might really Freak Out :p (see what I did there?)
