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…..
For all the rules on who was picked and why, and when/how voting works check out our week 1 post which can be viewed here.

So here are our 8 Conference Champions, the Elite Eight:
Just to recap the stats on our 8 Conference Champions competing in the Elite Eight:
Four #1 seed, two #2 seed, one #7 seed, and one #8 seed won their Conferences (clearly most of you all want Pinchy and Mr. Sparkle more badly than I do).
In the eight Conference Final match-ups, no winner received over 90% of the vote, none received 85.01% to 90%, 1 received 80.01% to 85%, 4 received 60.01% to 80%, 2 received 55.01% to 60%, and 1 squeaked by with 50.01 to 55%.

This week, we will narrow down the field from 8 (the Elite Eight) to 4 (the Final Four). After 7 weeks of intra-Conference match-ups, our 8 Conference Champions square off in four challenging inter-Conference match-ups –
ELITE EIGHT QUARTER-FINAL #1
ELITE EIGHT QUARTER-FINAL #2
*Reminder, Pets are considered playable characters (similar to Mr. Teeny or Stampy) and Combos are considered one playable character (similar to Sherri & Terri or Patches & Poor Violet)
ELITE EIGHT QUARTER-FINAL #3
ELITE EIGHT QUARTER-FINAL #4
Reminder, voting is open until noon EDT Thursday August 4th.
