Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Wookstradamus is super busy finishing up the last couple of weeks of school for the year so I’m here to pinch hit for him with the latest speculation about what may be ahead for us in TSTO. Don’t worry though all of my thoughts are Wookiee approved…we texted about it earlier today.
First though I want to give a shout out to the Wookster. He’s bustin’ his butt with school, finals and papers, and still found time to write a TON of WDTCFs for the Secret Agents event (I still have a bunch I need to post). Wook is such a valuable part of the Addicts team & his Simpsons knowledge is second to none, so I’m super appreciative of him managing to knock out all of those posts for us. And we should get Wook back at full strength in about 2 weeks. So good luck with finals buddy!
So another major event take down hit our App Stores yesterday, and every time one event ends (sometimes before) the speculation immediately begins about what’s next. We’re Addicts, we can’t help it. Fortunately these days EA makes things EAsy (just for you Pat) with teasers in the App Store descriptions. Here’s what we saw with the Secret Agents Removal:
Initial reaction is we’ve got all new clues. None of the new teasers seem to be referencing back to the most recent ones (French Fop is really what comes to mind), looks like three new clues. So here’s a little Addicts Prognostication about what could be headed our way…
So the three clues in this What’s New Description are “A face-paint focused collegiate experience? A temporal trip? A quicky wedding?”, let’s break them down one by one…
“A face-paint focused collegiate experience”
So of course the first thought that pops into my head, given face-paint and college is Krusty’s Clown College, from “Homie the Clown”, S6 E15:
I think this is the most logical choice (and likely for a mini event), but it’s hard not to get excited about a couple more options with the word collegiate in there…
We got the nerds, how long until we get Springfield U and Springfield A & M? Could there be an upcoming update where they finally hit Springfield? I hear face-paint I also think of college kids painting their faces for big football games…
A temporal trip?
So this makes me think of time travel. I have a couple of ideas with this one, but one Wookiee suggested is Homer and his time traveling toaster from “Treehouse of Horror V”, S 6, E6
My theory on this comes into play with the next line “A quicky wedding”. Could this be a time travel back to Homer and Marge’s “shotgun” Wedding?
Of course this could just be a trip back in time to the younger years of the Simpson Family, we got future Bart and Lisa why not young Bart and Lisa? In particular from “Lisa’s First Word” S4, E10
Some sort of time travel event might make for an interesting summer event, but we kind of already did that with the Sci Fi event from last summer…
A Quicky Wedding
Aside from Homer and Marge’s true shotgun wedding I mentioned above, another quick wedding that comes to mind is that of Troy McClure and Selma, from “A Fish Called Selma”, S7, E19 While there have been plenty of weddings in The Simpsons history this one jumped out at me because of the nature of the marriage and episode…
Could this be the time we finally get a Phil Hartman character? Would EA do that? Could be possibly see Troy McClure grace our Springfields?
So many possibilities from the episode, and it would give long time players something to stick around for…Troy McClure.
So that’s it for my speculation, so many things. Maybe I’ll be right about some, probably be wrong about many…but the speculation is still fun!
What are your thoughts about what we may see next? Do you agree with my assessments? What would you change around? Anything you’d add? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Looks like Wookie nailed it.
Man I’m using my donuts for these pin pals. So happy.
Alissa!! New Mini-Event! Pin-Pals 2017!!!!!!!
Well it’s a Pin Pals mini event. I’m not impressed thus far but dumped 100 sprinkles for new Burns and Apu Pin Pal skins. The event calls for check ins every 3 hours too with an end date of May 23rd. I’d hoped for something better. The only highlight is bringing back Laramie Vending Machine!!! I started playing after it was long gone. I bought 12 instantly at $3500 a piece.
I should clarify that I’m not a smoker and condone the practice. I still placed many around Springfield…not near the schools though
I bought a dozen right away too. I placed a few outside the DMV for Patty and Selma’s nicotine emergencies. Now they can enjoy a silky smooth Laramie without having to go all the way to the Kwik-E-Mart, thus irritating their stubby, disgusting leg hairs against their clothing
