And don’t forget to take the Addicts Blogiversary Poll! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

The Springfield Games hit our games this past week.  What are your thoughts on the new mini-event?  Do you think we’ll see a major event when this one ends?  If so, what event?  (Wookiee gave us some teasing on this earlier in the week)

Safi’s released week 9 of the Addicts Bracket Challenge this week, to find the most desired character for TSTO.  What are your thoughts on the challenge?  Have you voted yet?  Which week 9 match up is your favorite?  Remember…this is JUST for fun.  It’s not endorsed by EA, it’s just something fun we’re doing.  🙂

How was your weekend?  Have you been checking out the Olympics?  Thoughts on the Opening Ceremony?  Do anything fun and exciting over the weekend?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Is anyone else desperately jonesing for the next event? I keep hoping and checking for posts on here predicting when it might be (enjoyed the articles about what ppl would like to see next event).
    I know if there’s to be anything at all it’ll be after the big update on the 16th as well this current mini-event (I finished it ages ago), but I still can’t help but hope!
    Think it’s safe to say I am TO addict! lol.
    I’ve really tidied up my town in the meantime though so the free time definitely forced me to do that at least. Except Springfield Heights…that’s a mess for a whole nother time.

  2. Okay just got this message that I have 5550 items in my town & they recommend I stay below that? Any of you that have been playing for a long time have advice? I play on newer iPad. Thx

    1. It’s just a warning… the max is 7500 items. Once you pass that point, it warns you periodically up to the max. I try to keep my town around 6K. You’ll see some texture glitches but otherwise your game will be fine. When I took my game to the max once upon a time I had a lockout issue so I stay on the low side. The hope is that after the 16th… this will change and the max will be raised.

      1. Thanks wookie, looks looks like I have some time if not will need to find another game.
        Always appreciate input.

  3. Been playing the game for about 18 months but not seriously till this last winter, all this time have been struggling with the Heights & today at least got one design that starts to work for me. I among one that wants a place for things in my town & that area always seems difficult.
    So much tapping to get the things you want to place. Sometimes spending donuts seems easier. I guess I am real addict now.

  4. Tapebelt, u may say that I take being an addict to a whole new place.😜😜😜😜. I have u in Wendell, and i will have to say, I really enjoy looking around in ur town. I have some great neighbors in all my towns. The 16th is my son’s. He is a truck driver and it is hard for him to visit his neighbors. During events it is really hard to visit, mostly, besides time, it seems I am thrown out a lot more.

  5. Has anyone had an issue where tsto won’t load while using data but will load with no problem using WiFi? I’m using a galaxy s7 edge on verizon

    1. As far as I’m aware some devices have a setting which lets you decide which Apps can use mobile data, wifi only, or both/either.

      On my Android tablet (Android version 4.3) I go to ‘Settings-Networked Apps’ and can then choose which apps can use 3G only, Wifi only or both.

      Not sure but that may solve your issue?
      Good luck!

  6. Ibuylow2014, I am sorry that I hit ur Moe’s by mistake. I gave myself a good talking to about that, so I shouldn’t do that again. Maryjo64

        1. I was visiting my neighbors in four different towns on four different devices. That is the only way that I can visit all my neighbors every day in all 16 towns that I do. Usually I can do all of them without any problems and it only takes an hour to do each set of four, even with being thrown out of the game several times as I go. Mary Jo

          1. i’ve seen you mention this before, but i still can’t wrap my head around trying to maintain 16 towns…… or spending 4 hours to visit neighbors……. or using 4 devices at once………..

          1. So should I build a wall around my town to keep you out? 😛

            All jokes aside, i AM a terrible neighbor, so apologies for that. And yes that is a KEM farm posing as good ol natural farmland.

  7. So there is Frinkiac for the Simpsons, Morbotron for Futurama, I’m wondering if this is a trend that will go into Live-action sitcoms.

    How about a Yadda-yadda-yadda-fier for Seinfeld?

    A Bazingamajig for the Big Bang Theory?

    A Central-Perkulator for Friends?
