The Coolest Things (So Far) EA Ever Did In TSTO…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lately it seems, that with event on top of event, TSTO has become predictable.  Often times we can figure out what’s going to happen in the game before an event even hits.  Let’s face it it’s all become a bit monotonous.

An Event hits, there’s going to be some element of excitement during Act 1…Act 2 hits that excitement level dwindles a bit, since really Act 2 is a replay of act 1…and by the time Act 3 hits everyone is so bored and over the event that we just want it to be over already.  But it wasn’t always like this…

EA used to do some super cool things with events (and in some cases they still do).  These cool elements made TSTO stand out from other freemium games…and honestly I’m not sure why they stopped with some of them.

While I’m sure many of us have different opinions about what’s cool and what’s not…I think having played this game for nearly four years and blogging about it for just about three years gives me a unique perspective.  Heck I’ve been moderating your comments about what y’all like and dislike about this game for three years. 😉

So here’s my take on some of the coolest elements EA ever added to TSTO…

Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Superhero Sequel Freemium Characters

Special Shout Out and thanks to Safi for helping pull a few of these for me AND for reminding me to post full dialogue again.  I’ve gottten so busy since Riley was born I had forgotten to go back when events were over and post the full dialogue for those that missed it! So thanks for the reminder Safi! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The 2016 Superhero Sequel Event brought us loads of new characters and new costumes for our pre-existing characters in Springfield!

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ version of each questline up for each character for a while now (check out the event page for character details), we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the freemium characters who participated in the event and of the new costumes we earned in the event. So if you missed any of the dialogue during the event, or you’re just curious what one of the characters had to say that you didn’t unlock…we’ve got it all here for you!

So let’s get started with the complete dialogue walkthroughs for all of the freemium characters that hit our game during the event…

Diary of a Wookiee: What’s next? Wookin for clues in Alderaan places

Wowza… EA ended the Superheroes Sequel and then walloped us with the return of the Monorail for everybody. Any tapper who knows me should know how thrilled I am to see the return of this for the game. I actually finally built some track in my town although I’m not completely happy with it and still considering a complete redesign so I can make it pretty. Anyhoo… like most take-downs recently, EA decided to tease some possible future stuff in their update message.

But what the heck does this all mean. Sure it could all just be a joke from the designers but there is usually a kernel of truth within the farce. I decided to do a little thinking and see if I could come up with episodes that might bring stuff to us pertaining to these hints. Here’s what I came up with. Continue reading
