Addicts Poll Question: How Would You Rate 2017 in TSTO So Far?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re nearing June and that means the year is nearly half over…so I thought it’d be a good time to take a look and see just how 2017 stacks up for TSTO.

So far in 2017 we’ve had the following:
Homer the Heretic
Lunar New Year
Around the World
Valentine’s Day
Rommelwood Academy
St. Patrick’s Day
Secret Agents
Pin Pals

2 big events and a whole lot of mini events. So…

I’ll share your results in a post on Monday, while we all wait for the next big thing….

Thoughts?  Feelings? Share them below! 🙂

  1. The events are good over all, yes, they are for the most part and many start getting bored as it just becomes routine, the tasks are now shorter then they use to be which is a good thing.
    With that said.. the mini events seem to be much better than the main events that have happened this year.
    The game seems now to be more of content buying then actual event. There is only so much you can put in your town before it warns you that you have surpassed the 6,600 items and your game starts to slow down. I have noticed this in some of my friends who have a ton of items and it’s slow moving around in their towns.

    The game’s been great so far, but I wished they could’ve done more with Flying Hellfish rather than just offer us a Gill deal at a ridiculous cost.


  3. It’s been a while that I wanted to voice my feelings about events, now seems a good time so here goes.

    The first event that I actively played was whacking day back in early 2013 if I’m not mistaken although I was tapping before that. Over the years my reactions towards events went from: hooray! to oh no, not another one already 😒

    In my opinion, I think that there are way too many events. By events I mean the month long ones. At first when the mini events (two weeks long) were introduced I loved the change of pace. Now EA sticks them between events! There’s practically no down time between events. I used that time to place the new buildings and decorations and rearrange my Springfield. Since we barely have any free time my inventory is full of things that I don’t have time to place them. I still haven’t finished placing items from the casino event! With the current format that works on blocks of four hours I just log in, tap NPCs do the mini game and log out and repeat four hours later. Because this format requires us to log in to tap often if we want to get all the prizes, I get so tired of it that I do it as fast as possible in order to get it over with. When I earn a new building or decoration after earning a set number of points I just put it in an corner and leave. I used to love building my Springfield and investing time to make it look good. These days it feels like a heavy chore. I blame it on event fatigue. Usually I get tired by act 2 and wish the event would end with the act.

    I miss the old level system with three events a year (Christmas, Halloween and one for summer). Also the events are too long, two weeks would be enough should EA wish to continue putting out events one after the other. It would be a nice change to put more variety. I’m tired of the same formula being used over and over which makes the events all the more bland. Remember the Stonecutters? It stood out because it was different than the usual tap the spawning NPCs. Daily missions and mystery tasks made it fresh and original. Tap Ball and Clash of the Clans had us compete with other players instead of the usual visit your neighbours towns to tap NPCs or buildings.

    To be honest, I don’t enjoy tapping like I used to. These days it’s more out of habit. As a result, I don’t appreciate the events anymore. Don’t ask me which one I liked most because they all feel the same. Sure around the world gave us interesting buildings and decorations, but I haven’t had the time to appreciate them since we had spies invade our Springfields. Eventually I’ll make a nice arrangement haha!

    As for crafting, I like the idea that players can choose what and how many decorations and buildings we can add to our towns. The spin the wheel from a Christmas event left me with a sour taste, I didn’t get the items that I wanted… I’m not a fan of the luck of the draw like we had with a previous Easter event.

    What I’d love to see is a stage and have musical guests play. There have been so many musical acts appear in the series long run that there is bound to have something for everybody to enjoy. I understand that there must be a lot of legal issues that would prevent such an event to even take form. Just thinking of all the great bands and artists that could hit the stage makes my eager fingers tingle with excitement!

    I’m glad for all of you tappers who are having a fun time and wish you all the best. Sorry for the length of this reply I didn’t think it would be THAT long!

    PS. Like many of you out there I would love to see a Phil Hartman event and also add Bleeding Gums Murphy added as a playable character.
