Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale ends this week, how have you fared with the prize track?

 

Have you been watching the Olympics?  What’s your favorite event to watch?

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  3. Happy Wednesday everybody! I just want to say I’m am sad because of the shooting at the high school in Florida. I have a daughter in HS and all of the local schools were threatened! I was torn over this because I don’t know how I could handle losing her. I sent her to school and she is actually laughing in her bedroom now. I had to send her, I don’t want to teach her to be scared of anything, no matter how scary it may seem! I guess I’m just a strong believer in if God wants you, He’s taking you.

  7. Is it just me or is this challenge really limited. Scrap seems scarce, there aren’t many ruffians generating and I can only collect from 5 out of my 20 neighbors. I haven’t been able to progress very much no matter how often I log in and play.

    • How many peeps are you sending every 4 hours to Assault/Fortify?

    • Your ruffians are probably stuck somewhere. Use the green crafting level up button to find them. As long as you don’t have enough scrap to actually level up, it should take you right to where the ruffians are stuck. Get them all and a message will show at the top that all ruffians are cleared.

  8. Do you think Greta/Preparatory School (Vault rebate offer) along with a Doomsday mystery box prize or Jessica Lovejoy/Lovejoy Residence (full price) would be the best option?

    Like

    • I still haven’t bought the Lovejoy house…too expensive, and has never shown up in my vault or a mystery box. I’d go with Greta.

      Liked by 1 person

    • Take the Greta rebate. I say,because its on sale now. Then eventually Lovejoys will be on sale and you will save then too. However, Jessica can go to Krustyland. If thats important to you it may be worth it in the long run to get Jessica. Excluding increased KL earnings, i would go with whichever is cheapest.

  9. Do you guys also have that problem where you have to redownload the whole game like twice a day? At first it looks like an in game update of a few MB but then it downloads the whole game again (like 760 MB)

    • Sounds like the game needs more room on your device. You may need to store some stuff in the cloud to give the game enough free memory to run properly. Good luck😁.

  10. Snow and ice is forecasted in my area starting at 6pm tonight. I am so ready for spring. Really tired of all the cold. And the whacky changes are a known phenomenon in Kansas. Hence the saying “If you don’t like the weather just wait five minutes”😂

  11. So I have 3 daily challenges completed, and number 4 would be launching right about the same time as act 3 would be launching so will I get to access it immediately if I use my daily Challenge as soon as the act begins or will I have to wait another 24 hours?

  12. Anyone have any thoughts Arnie Pye? Have him in my vault this week, checked the should I buy post and some people were complaining about him flying around in the way all the time if I send him for an hour task … Is it still a big issue?

    Like

    • They fixed that annoying glitch. He can now fly freely without you worrying about tapping him.

      I think he’s great! Go for it 😊

    • Arnie Pye is a fun character, in my opinion. It is true that two of its jobs (1 h and 12 h, I think) cause him to fly around, but since some patch in 2017 he is unclickable, so you will not be moved to Channel 6 studios. The same applies for Kodos and Norbert Van Houten.

      Like

    • The issue was him always getting in the way if you tap near him. All the flying characters have been fixed so you can no longer tap them in flight. I chose not to purchase him for that very reason. It is no longer an issue and hence no longer the most hated character.

    • thanks for the quick responses, I’ll definitely go for him since there is a 20 donut rebate in the vault, and it will be another character on my town

      • He has a horrible voice, I usually have him walking the dog, anything to not be flying. Whatever else you were thinking, I’d go with that.

  13. It snowed Saturday night.. spent the afternoon shoveling. And now they’re saying Wednesday the temperature will be going up to 70F! Whacky weather we’re having here… but I’ll take all the warm days. I’m ready for spring. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

  14. Anyone else ready for the end of the event? I’m bored. I like the Mad Max movies but this event is getting tedious. I’m not really not excited about the new items and prizes. The upcoming prizes and offerings are a bit meh. I thought Slaghold looked cool, but I figured I’d wait on it but now I wonder if I really want it?

    I love Moe’s Express. The stools are always occupied in my town and Moe is always ready to pour. I like the Mega Playscape, the ship and the training ground but the other Junk Base and the Ruffian Fort probably won’t have a place in my Springfield. New characters are usually good, but I’m going to pass on Wendell, Mountain Man and Eric. I don’t want Wendell constantly spewing in my Springfield.

    The mystery boxes were great though. I love most of the returning content. I bought all the Date Nite items except the Rio Days Inn Ero. Great deals on character combos. I will probably get all the Doomsday items. 40 donuts is a fair price for most of the items. I got the one item I really didn’t want (the pileup) in my first try in both of my Springfields. Oh well, the bonus is good for the price. I finally have a premium skin for Marge, Mayan Marge! I still haven’t gotten the Zombie sandwich. Only three more items to go in the Doomsday Mystery Box! After that, I’ll just save for St. Patrick’s Day items. I need Giuseppe, the Wishing Well with the Leprechaun, Pride of Ulster Banner and Northern Irish Leprechaun and Father Sean. Here’s hoping to see the rivers run green!

    • I agree! Cannot wait for this event to end. The only reason I’m playing is to get stuff that I won’t have to worry about popping up later in mystery boxes. Date box was good for me and I cleared it out along with the Doomsday items. All I had left was the trash pileup and I left it in there. Once this event is done, to storage all of it goes 😜

    • Your town got corrupted. It has happened to a lot of people in the last 6-7 months. I’m sure you’ll find a lot more wrong than just those couple things you mentioned.
      You can either contact EA immediately or live with it while you hope for a fix to come with one of the updates. I’ve heard the “fix” they currently have is they have to do a rollback on your town.

    • Usually EA does a roll-back to the last day your town was normal, so time is not your friend here. Contact them by phone immediately and have them do a roll back…the longer you wait, the more you will lose.

  17. Hey everyone, happy Sunday.
    TSTO comment: managed to grind about 40M between school work, and dumped it on BMs. Got 360 donuts from it, giving me 510 total. Got 6 Valentines Mystery Boxes, and am pretty satisfied. Got Dia-Betty, which was great considering her previous price. Also got Shauna, Brendan, Le KB, Up Up and Buffet and Swanky Fish, the only one I was disappointed with. Am debating between Wendell and Erik for the last 150 donuts, as from what I’m aware we will get a Last chance offer on him. Classic character vs nice bonus %…hmmm…would appreciate some insight. Also just got Maggie, and gotten a couple bonut rounds too.
    Non TSTO comment: University of Guelph has been very busy as of late, hence why I’ve been quiet of late. Had a presentation on Parkinson’s Disease and 2 midterms within 2 days of each other. Thankfully I have this next week off to catch up a bit and relax.

    • And also forgot to mention I’ve been watching my fellow Canadians at the Olympics. In particular I watched the Women’s Snowboard Cross, as my aunt’s son’s daughter, Carle Brenemann, was participating. Sadly she made it 4th in her group in the quarterfinals, so she didn’t make it to the semifinals. But it was fun cheering on a relative at the Olympics!

    • TSTO comment: if you need some XP boost, I suggest getting Eric and the Dodgeball court (as I did). But then again, if that’s the issue, you should actually get Mystery Boxes instead 🙂

  19. Well, the Valentine’s Mystery Box worked out better than I feared! All I really wanted was Mindy, but I had a pile of donuts so I took some chances. I got: 1) Becky (pretty good); 2) Up Up and Buffet (ugh); 3) Brendan (eh, it’s a character at least); 4) Mindy (yay!). So I stopped there. But is anyone else having a problem completing her quest chain? Homer needs to buy champagne, but that’s not an option under any of his skins. From what I’ve seen online this is a long-standing bug with no solution, but maybe some of you know otherwise?

  20. Happy Sunday everyone
    I have a question what kind of Xp. Do you get for visiting neighbors
    Is it worth it during events it is so hard I have 95 neighbors I am also at like 300 percent but it takes over a hour to visit everyone

    Also I don’t know why when people quit the game they don’t go in and remove all there neighbors so we don’t have neighbors that don’t play anymore.

    Good luck everyone it’s time to watch nascar Daytona 500 lets go racing boys and girl good luck Danica on your last 500

    Thank you for the great help and blogs Alicia and team.

    • It may have changed, but it used to be 25 base XP per neighbour action, for a total of 7500 for visiting all 100 neighbours. And that’s with your XP Collider off. I’ve already done my actions for the day, so I can’t check.

    • Neighbors – During Events is not worth it. Hit your event quota and stop. When you need to chase NPC’s they don’t know you visited. When you have to hit buildings they do know.

      When events are over hit them up to remind them you are still playing. They will see your name. I manage my friends and kick them off if I see them not playing within 4 weeks. I do this between events when I can see they have no free buildings to tap.

      Only other reason to visit every single friend is a chance for donuts which is statistically terrible especially if you have 300 percent as you stated. Just Kem once or twice and you will get more donuts than you would in a weeks worth of friend visits.

      I’m at 525% btw and stopped event friend visiting a long time ago due to the time sink involved. It’s just WAY too slow.
