Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just a reminder that the Sci-Fi Event Ends TOMORROW September 20th.
BUT just because the timer is running out doesn’t mean the Event will immediately leave your Springfield. It will take an App Store Update to remove the Event from our towns. And it’s likely that update won’t hit until later in the day on Tuesday.
However, as we’ve been seeing with the last few events, it’s entirely possible that once the timer runs out you’ll most likely no longer be able to earn Act 3 Prizes or Craft Act 3 items for free. So to be safe, get everything you can before it’s gone!
Also, the premium items WILL be leaving the stores when the timer runs out. Those are on a specific timer and will leave the store when their timer runs down. So if there’s a premium item you want grab it before it’s gone.
As far as what is going to happen AFTER the Event…
Well, we can’t know… until it is over. Lol. Until then all we can do is speculate. So, patience. We all have to verify what happens after together.
Now as far as to what is going with the Event, here is a brief rundown…
- Questlines linked directly to the progression of the Event will go. Like the Main Questlines that pulled you through all 3 Acts.
- However, the questlines linked directly the the prizes you’ve won (or character you purchased) will remain. (so President Lisa, Mooch Bart etc.)
- The event removal will require an app store update to fully remove it from your game. So don’t panic when the timer runs down and the event isn’t out of your game… It will require an app store update to remove everything. Usually those hit around 12-2pm (ET)
I know some of you still try to push that last few minutes of collection as far as you can. If you turn OFF the auto update feature in your App Market, you may give yourself an extra day or so… just know that ANY time after the 20th is borrowed time and you are doing so at YOUR OWN RISK. EA can force the update at anytime after and make you update. So use any extra time wisely and get what you need before you have to remove the Event completely.
I would however caution you…that when the last couple of events ended (i.e. the timer ran out), remember you could no longer collect event currency to earn the prizes for free.
So tap those last few robots and relax and wait to see what EA has next in store for us.
Oh and for those asking what I think, I’ve said this a few times. I think we’ll see a Season 28 Premiere Episode Tie-In this week (since the Season Premiere is set for Sunday) and that will be followed by Halloween. (there may be a Gil deal in there too since you’ve got 2 weeks till October starts…but we’ll see)
Remember the items with timers on them will also leave our stores…so if there’s a character or item you’re thinking about buying…do it today before it’s gone!
And that’s it! Nothing to do now but sit back, relax and wait for the next big thing…
