Destination Springfield – World Traveler Edition

worldtravel-main
One of the most interesting aspects of having a blog that is truly international is the fact that the readers are…well…truly international! It’s an amazing fact to know that TSTO blogs like this are read in more than 110 countries around the world. Yes, there are surely “pockets of extreme tapperage” going on in certain locations (New Jersey as Blog Central comes to mind), but there is far more to this particular update than meets the eye at first (or even second or third) glance.

There is a certain irony that we are being tasked to send travelers across the globe in our games while actual world travel is becoming a “bit more complicated” to put it nicely. But as always, we will leave the politics to other radicalized sources of propaganda (FaceBook), and celebrate the amazing diversity of players/readers we have here.

Main Event Contest: And the Winner Is…..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

About a month ago we challenged you guys to design the next event in TSTO with our Main Event Contest and WOW did you guys respond!  We were COMPLETELY blown away by your submissions!  We then read each and every one of your entries over and over, trying hard to narrow it down to the finalists.  You guys had such AMAZING ideas and it was nearly impossible to narrow it down, but we finally picked 10 finalists.  Then we left it up to you guys, the AMAZING Addicts Community to vote for your favorite and pick the winner.

Well the votes have been cast and the totals are it…and all we can say is you guys had as hard of a time picking a winner as we did picking the finalists!  It was an insanely close battle!

So enough stalling from me…let’s get to the winners!!

Osaka Flu: Are You Infected?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Since the event started the Osaka Flu has been spreading through our towns faster than germs on a public drinking fountain.

So fast that over 104% of the world is infected.

I guess that means we’ve covered Earth and we’re working on Mars now….

So I figured let’s test this out, and see if any of the Addicts readers have yet to be infected by the Osaka Flu.  Because in theory if the virus has spread to every Tapper on Earth (and some on Mars) than every Addict should have it.  So…

And as a quick reminder from this post to get the details on how Osaka works and spreads.

And remember, to level up you need to clear pins from neighbor visits to your Springfield.  So in order to level up you need neighbors to visit your Springfield.  You can add neighbors via our Add Friends thread here.

What are your thoughts on the 104%  infection spread rate?  Has Osaka invaded your Springfield? What level are you on? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
