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.
Like last year, we will create a Bracket of 64 beloved buildings we believe would bring a smile to your face, have great tasks, could make for an awesome event, or simply be a nice idea for a new Friends Point prize. Unlike last year though, you will have a huge say in what buildings make the cut.
We have selected 96 buildings organized into eight thematic conferences. We have chosen four to get automatic entries into the Bracket. However, your votes in the polls below will select which four buildings will join them in each conference. Those 64 buildings will then battle each other in six rounds of head-to-head match-ups, that we hope produces the most debate in the comments below.
Over the past week and next couple days, we’ll have two polls every third day, by which you’ll complete the Bracket. After that, every Friday over summer, we’ll post that week’s match-ups and your votes will determine which buildings advance to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Most Desired Building” on Friday September 1st.
