Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Pre-Bracket Poll 2

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of buildings in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Building Bracket Battle.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Sacred Parchment, Guillotine, Flaming Torch or Medieval Banners?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event!  Homer’s taken us back to the Egyptian Era and we’ve got Pharaohs, Pyramids & of course other Egyptian items in our Springfield just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Sacred Parchment, Guillotine, Flaming Torch or Medieval Banners to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Excavation Payout Potential Issues..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in with something real quick…a few of you are reporting it appears that your Excavation Papyri payouts have decreased.  I did a little digging around, and the base is still 36 Papyri (that change was made June 2nd) BUT it appears that somewhere along the lines the payouts have dropped when it gets to the multipliers.

My Panini Press is fully updated, which means I should have a 50% increase on my Papyri payouts…so it should be 54 each dig (50% more of 36), but instead I’m getting 47.

It appears that this is a bug of some sort.  I don’t see any intentional changes in the files.  The base is still 36 and the upgrade payouts still increase by 10% to 50%.

The bottom-line, you’re not going crazy.  Something is going on, but it doesn’t appear to be an intentional change. Seems like it’s a bug and hopefully EA will correct it soon.

(Note: there was an update yesterday.  That update increased the Excavation payouts for Specimen and Tachyons…did not touch the event currency payouts)

TTT Egyptian Era Excavation Site Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time to Walk Like an Egyptian through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the  Egyptian Era!  We’ve got roaming Pharaohs, Sarcophagus, Temples and Pyramids!

You can tell EA is trying to do a few things different with this event…for starters it’s a week shorter and there are more prize elements, but it’s really the Excavation Site that people are digging…see what I did there? 

The Excavation Game has Tappers everywhere talking…about the best strategy, how many moves they can find the Gem in and apparently it’s become almost as addicting as this site !;)

So let’s breakdown the details of the Excavation Site changes that rolled in with the Egyptian Era….
