Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So the Superheroes Sequel Removal update not only brought the Monorail back to our Pocket Sized Springfields, it also brought a warning about a MAJOR change that’s about to hit our games very soon. This is super important, so listen up….
On August 16th TSTO will NO LONGER BE SUPPORTED on devices that are not on iOS 7 (or higher) and Android 3 (or higher). So if you’re playing on an older device…check your OS if it’s lower than iOS 7 or Android 3 you will NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PLAY TSTO ON THAT DEVICE, starting August 16th.
For those of you that are impacted you will see this message popup in TSTO when you launch it between now and August 16th:
If you didn’t see that message, or you recently purchased a new device, you’re fine.
iOS is currently on OS 9…. OS 7 launched in 2014 with the iPhone 4.
Android is currently on OS 6 (Marshmallow)…
So if you’re running on an old device, it may be about that time to upgrade…especially if you want to keep playing TSTO.
Why make this change? Well it’s getting harder to continue to support the older devices while changing the game to support the newer devices. Newer OS allow EA to do more with TSTO, and when they have to support older OS it limits what they can and can’t do. I’m hoping this change means that they’ll improve the overall lag in the game AND increase the item limit cap. Since most newer devices have enough memory to run TSTO just fine with higher item limits.
So bottom line, if you’re playing on an old device with an old OS it’s time to bite the bullet and upgrade your device if you want to continue playing TSTO.
Will this change impact you? Already have a new device? Looking to upgrade? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
