Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character Week 9 (The Final Four)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! It’s time for Week 9 voting of our Addicts Bracket Challenge!  We’re down to the Final Four…who will move onto the Finals?  Vote now to find out! 
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. I think that Leon should be a character built with the Calmwood Mental Hospital, which is already a building in the game that isn’t premium, but isn’t with the main questline.

  2. I chose the non guest voiced characters so Sarah and the Nerds because Ralph needs his mother and Clancy needs his wife. I am not sure what visual tasks she could have but I hope they are good and suit her. The Nerds are needed at various geeky locations like Honest Johns, Java Server, Springfield Knowledgeum or Crypto Barn one of their tasks could be attend bi mon sci fi con at the Convention Center. Personally I would love the nerds to be seperate characters each with their own list of tasks than like duo characters such as the orphans, Gabbo & Arthur and Sherri and Terri. Oh and the nerds have to come with the Springfield U campus and have tasks there. I was rooting for Mr Sparkle and Pinchy but now that they lost I picked Sarah and the Nerds over Leon K and B G Murphy.

  3. Bleeding Gums Murphy was one of the first characters in the simpsons I remember being introduced to. I’m really surprised it’s taken so long for him to show up in the game. But they’ll get him, eventually, I believe. Of course that’s who I voted for.

  4. Bleeding Gums Murphy? In the worst episode ever (any episode with Lisa singing is awful mind).

    • ‘Round Spingfield has really grown on me over the years, and I’ve come to appreciate just how good it is.

    • I love her singing. That made his dying episode better than it was going to be. So, maybe I sorta agree since I don’t think the episode is so great otherwise.

  5. BGM all the way for me. I love sax in pop music….. 🙂

  6. I think everyone knows where I stand by now. Glad he’s made it this far.

  7. Just a little Fyi. …but Wookiees latest post has a bug…

  8. MJ and NERDS for me ♡ …

  9. Hey Safi & Alissa

    Great stuff as always!

    I’m not sure if you’ve already planned to do this but, if it’s not too late, would it be possible to not only vote for 1st and 2nd (the winners of this week) but also for 3rd and 4th place (the losers of this week)?

    That way we could see who the top four characters are in order of popularity…?

    Just a thought… And I try not to have them too often – especially on a weekend!

  10. After this is completed Addicts should do a LEAST desirable character bracket. Because….why the hell not?

  11. Disappointed Allison was eliminated…

  12. Rooting for Dr. Hibbert’s implied long lost brother.

  13. Haven’t voted yet, but I’m just really happy to see Wendell knocked out (or I would be, if this bracket was being run by EA to really decide what was coming into the game). I was really dreading having to dodge animations of him puking in my neighbours’ towns!

    I’m going to struggle most with the choice between BGM and the nerds. I have a soft spot for BGM, and it would make Lisa very happy to have him, but I think the nerds have more in-game potential (a campus event would be great… Springfield needs a college!).

  14. I hate Bleeding Gums Murphy and Leon both, so I’d like to see one of the others win. Realistically, I imagine it will be BGM that will win.

  15. Bye, Wendell 🙁

  16. It’s gonna be bleeding gums vs Sarah wiggum. Bleeding gums will probably win

  17. We want Mr sparkle

  18. Tracy - 1ltwoody920

    In a blasphemous statement, I confess I do not watch the show.
    I do base my vote on the character presented and the potential that I foresee for that character – unique, but not overly odd.

  19. Wendell!!!!!! Noooooo!!!!

    Game over.

    Leon will lose to BGM but All three should be characters in our game. Wendell would have beat Wiggum easily.

  20. At this point, it’s Anyone But Leon for me.

  21. I can’t believe Sarah Wiggum’s only been in 26 episodes….nonetheless, that’s 22 more than Kompowsky, and as much as MJ was a musical genius, Ralph needs a mommy!

  22. It just gets harder and harder each week, hope Leon vs Murphy in the finale 😃

  23. Well it was close for Mr Sparkle. Have voted but doubt it’s with the majority. Which is good.
    “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority,it’s time to pause and reflect.”
    Top work as always Safi this was a fine idea.

  24. Its getting close to the final!!!
    I can’t wait! You have done an amazing job with these Safi. I have loved them!
    These four are four ones that I rEAlly want to see in the game! I would be happy with any of them winning. Not really sad to see Pinchy and Mr Sparkle leave tbh

  25. I’ve been waiting the whole time that this came out

    • Woohoo! A Europe reference!

    • Nice! Whenever I hear that song I always think of Gob from Arrested Development.

      • At my last military assignment, we used to play this every Friday afternoon right before the end of duty hours to mark the weekend so I have fond memories with good people associated with it.

        • Not quite as important as a military assignment 😕
          But when I worked in a nursery/daycare we used to play ‘Ballroom Blitz’ for tidy up time which gave all of us a boost to get to the end of the day! So that song always reminds me of some good times and good people.
          Are you ready Steve?

          • Everyone’s life is important and thanks for sharing. Blitz makes me think of a cover band my Mom really liked. Unfortunately now it just makes people think of a DC Movie that may or may not be good… I’ll know tomorrow.

          • Ballroom Blitz! Love it, afraid I have to admit I remember it being released! Yup, I’m getting old. LOL.

      • Hahaha, so do I!

    • D’oh. I had a clip of Europe’s Final Countdown in my post for next week’s Finals. Thanks for stealing my thunder. 🙁

      That’s ok. I’ll come up with something more epic.

  26. Nerds all the way!!
