Missing Friends

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s late here so I’ll write more about this in the morning… but that’s a new bug in Springfield. Surprise!

This is getting ridiculous.  Now neighbors are missing.   You go to your friends list (neighbors)  and no one is listed except Other Springfield.  It’s not just you… it’s now widespread.

Missing entire friends lists.. are you kidding me?!  What’s next? Squidport suddenly going to disappear?  The town going to blow up again?  EA this is getting freaking ridiculous will you fix your damn game already? 

Patric adding to this…
It is likely that this issue is also related to the login issues that people have had all day. I suspect that there is a serious problem with user IDs.

No solutions yet… this is turning out to be a “wonderful update”…but, you had to expect this with Itchy and Scratchy. A TV show inside of a TV show is never good! Messes with the time/space continuem.

Don’t panic. They are going to have to fix this one…

UPDATE…they are back. We’ll see if this helps with the login issues. – PM

Addicts Question Corner: Itchy & Scratchy Bugs, Tips, Tricks & Rants…Oh My!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Itchy and Scratchy Land hit are games yesterday and wowsers is this event full of issues or what?!  Reminds me of the “old days” of TSTO, back when every event promised to be Simpson filled and bug riddled.  For those of us who played TSTO between 2012-2015, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

It’s been relatively calm in the world of TSTO, when it comes to bugs, for the last couple of years.  Sure there have been a few…and the rollback one is a HUGE one…but it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it was a few years ago.  Well…Itchy and Scratchy (always looking to destroy something) sure changed that!

From reading your comments, and boy have you guys been commenting the last 24hrs, the general consensus is the vast majority of you are pretty pissed off.  Whether it’s your game freezing, your game lagging, you’re just generally pissed they eliminated Krustyland or something else there’s a lot of ticked off Addicts around here!  So let’s get to some of your general complaints and see if we can help you fix some of the issues you may be experiencing…

Itchy and Scratchy Land- Act One Calendar

Well…well…well.  That’s not exactly what I was hoping for…

Let’s just say that I am currently too deep into the “holyfreakinshirt…did they rEAlly do THAT?” mode to be too positive and chatty about the numbers to “get it all” for Act I.

As has been the case over the past few events…there will be some grinding (of teeth in my case), there will be some crafting (maybe less than usual in my case), and there will be a ton of people who are going to freak out when they “are behind” after a day or two.

I’m not really sure just how EAsy this act will be. But, I am certain that because of the idiotic item limits (more about that in another post), I will be making some serious decisions on IF I can even place what I win.

But, strap on the backpack of “happy smiles,” and grimace… Here are the numbers for all of you who want to make sure you can plan your lives around “getting it all.”

Turbo Tappin’ Itchy and Scratchy Land: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly summertime (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and who doesn’t think of theme park visits when thinking about summer?  With the latest Itchy and Scratchy Land update you can build your own theme park in TSTO AND eliminate Krustyland once and for all! Just make sure you have your flashbulb cameras ready to destroy the evil robots…

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 of Itchy and Scratchy Land runs until June 13th, and you’ll have to destroy Krustyland to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…also the questline is there to guide you.  Make sure you complete the main questline in order to unlock things like neighbor actions, crafting and more.

Now let’s work our way through the frenzy of the Act 1 questline….

Itchy and Scratchy Land: Event Rundown (and Act 1 Content)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, the day has finally come…it’s time to get rid of Krustyland forever!  The newest update to hit TSTO finally axes Krustyland!

This update should autostart for you, with a 6s task for 3 Springfielders.  After that, you’ll be prompted to nuke Krustyland.  You cannot progress until you nuke Krustyland.  It’s not something you have to do immediately, but you do have to do it (or it’ll be done for you) by Monday, June 4th.

So let’s break down the newest update, shall we?

Itchy and Scratchy Land is Live in App Store: Some Event Spoilers…

Update: Rundown post is live. It should answer most of your burning Krustyland questions….you can find it here

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ok guys, the update is live in the app store (right now it’s only on Android.  If you don’t see it restart your device and search the app store for Tapped Out).  While I’m working on the rundown post i wanted to give you guys the spoilers we originally received from EA for Act 1.

So for those who want to know click below, if you don’t want to know don’t click below….

For those concerned, we’re not changing our Spoiler policy.  These are Spoilers we received directly from EA as part of their new program to reach out to the TSTO Community. Because these are confirmed by EA and we have the authorization to release them, we’re releasing them.  Beyond the information provided directly by EA we’ll still operate as business as usual and we will always warn you before spoilers are posted.  

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW…

It’s Event Day!

2nd Update: Guys it’s LIVE!  Check out this post for a bunch of details…working on rundown now

Update: Hey guys so the files have hit EA’s game server, HOWEVER it’s not live in the app stores just yet.  Waiting for word from EA if we can release the info we have at this time.  I will keep you posted on that.
In the meantime, this is promising.  Typically (the last few events) the update hasn’t hit the game files until 4-5pm ET (which is like 4-5 hrs from now)…so we could see the update in the app stores soon.  Fingers crossed!
I’ll keep you posted!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So today is the day…the day the latest event hits TSTO!

It’s business as usual, we have no idea when this event will actually hit the app store.  If recent history tells us anything, it’s likely that the event will hit app stores later this evening…usually around 5-6pm ET. (9-10pm GMT) So we’ll have to see what happens.

HOWEVER…an update IS hitting today.  SO DO NOT SEND ANY OF YOUR MAJOR CHARACTERS ON LONG TASKS.  

And as soon as we can give you guys more info about the event we will…fingers crossed that’s soon!

In the meantime feel free to speculate on the Rumor Mill post from yesterday or hang tight until something hits/we can share more info. Anyone else excited for update Wednesday?!

Rumor Mill: Next Event Speculation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Now that we know the next event will hit our games tomorrow I figured we could use tonight to get the old Rumor Mill up and running!  So in the comments below share rumors, speculation and other projections in what you think will be coming with tomorrow’s event!

In the meantime, we should be able to post some info for y’all in the morning.  And keep your eyes on the app stores, Springfield Jobs update hit app stores the night before it went live in our games…it’s possible this one may too.  We’ll keep a lookout!

A Memorial Day Moment

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the USA it is Memorial Day. A day when Americans remember those who fought for our country and freedom that are no longer with us. A time to mourn the loss of those no longer with us, but to also appreciate all that have done for us to protect our freedoms.

Tapped_Out_American_Flag

A few years ago Wook took the time to lay out his thoughts on Memorial Day as a Veteren of the US Air Force, definitely worth the read and can be found here.

Take the time and enjoy the day my friends, but please remember why you get to enjoy the extra time in the first place.

Here at Addicts, we’re taking the day.  Spending some time with our families and friends.  We’ll still be popping around the comments, but this will be our only post of the day.  We’ll be back at it tomorrow bright and early for y’all.

To all our readers who have served or continue to serve in our US Armed Forces (and Armed Forces around the world), thank you.

If there is someone special you’d like to honor in the comments, please share.
