Springfield Jobs Update

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Those of you on iOS may have noticed you got an update today for the next TSTO Event, Springfield Jobs.  (Android, from what I can tell, hasn’t hit yet…It’s now on Android, same details apply.  Nothing will actually happen in game until tomorrow) While you’ve gotten the update NOTHING is different in Springfield.  Why?  Why can’t you start the new event?! Why?! WHY?! WHYYYYYYY!?

Well, EA is doing something a little different this time around.  Maybe to combat those who get the update a day late, maybe for other reasons… But this update won’t officially start (i.e. you won’t see changes in YOUR game, even if you’ve downloaded the update) until TOMORROW March 21st at 10am ET (1400 GMT).

So don’t panic!  The new event will be live before you know it.  For now, just relax and check out this awesome new Splash Screen! Shoutout to Super Safi for sending it over to me, as my Android doesn’t have the update just yet…

I’ll be back tomorrow once the update goes live with the rundown.  So don’t panic if you don’t see our usual 6:30am (ET) post on the site…I’ll have all the content ready to go once the event actually launches.

Feel free to use this post as an Open Thread to speculate…but remember this is still a Spoiler Free site.

P.S. Here’s the current app store description (thanks again to Super Safi)

Homer vs 18th Amendment Prize Breakdown: Duff Float & Howard K. Duff “Give Out Samples” Animation

Aloha Amazing, Awesome, Aspiring Alcoholics and Ale Addicts,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “A”)

 

The Eighteenth Amendment (Amendment XVIII) of the United States Constitution effectively established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in the United States by declaring the production, transport, and sale of alcohol (though not the consumption or private possession) illegal. The separate Volstead Act set down methods for enforcing the Eighteenth Amendment, and defined which “intoxicating liquors” were prohibited, and which were excluded from prohibition (e.g., for medical and religious purposes). President Woodrow Wilson vetoed the bill, but the House of Representatives overrode the veto, and the Senate did so as well the next day. The Volstead Act set the starting date for nationwide prohibition for January 17, 1920, which was the earliest day allowed by the Eighteenth Amendment. The Amendment was in effect for the following 13 years. It was repealed in 1933 by ratification of the Twenty-First Amendment on December 5, 1933.

That’s enough of a history lesson!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Pass, Puff, Puff questlineyou’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

Let’s take a look at the details of the sixth and final prize, the Duff Float and Howard K. Duff “Give Out Samples” Animation. What it does and how you unlock it…
