There is currently an App Store update available for download in your App Stores…
While on the surface, and once you download it, it doesn’t look like it does all that much (icon/splash screen don’t change)…it will bring us a little teaser as to what’s next in TSTO.
However, the teaser won’t hit until TOMORROW (May 23rd) at 10 am ET, 1400 GMT. So, for now, it’s really nothing to see in your game. Nothing will change, that’ll you’ll really notice anyway.
So for now, here’s a taste of what’s to come tomorrow…
Oh and this puts us on a path for the next event to hit right as May is coming to a close…so May 29th/30th (end date for teaser in the files is the 30th, but that doesn’t mean that’s when the next event will hit. We’ve seen teasers end after an event has hit)
Did you go into TSTO this morning and see something strange happen? Something similar to this perhaps?
Weird right? That’s not you, who the heck is this? So you hit logout and try to log into your correct account. Of course, it’s not that simple, as you’re then you’re met with a message similar to this…
Huh? WTF?! WHERE IS MY SPRINGFIELD?! These may be some of the thoughts going through your head.
Relax. Take a deep breath. It’s fixable I promise. This happened to me this morning and I had it fixed in under a minute.
If this happens to you, simply hard close TSTO. (and by hard close I mean shut down the app. So that involves you going to whatever app manager you have and force closing the game. This could be as simple as holding the home button down on iOS and swiping away the game or hitting the double angles on Android and swiping away the game. In any need to HARD CLOSE/FORCE CLOSE it).
Then restart TSTO. You may be logged in as someone else. In my game it had me logged in as 1. Weird. Just hit the logout button. And try to log back into your game. Once you get the login popup you should be able to log right back into your Springfield and everything will be fine.
If for some reason this doesn’t work…others have mentioned they uninstalled and reinstalled TSTO and were successful. So that’s another option for you.
But for the love of Jebus…whatever you do don’t panic. Your game is not lost. You can get it back, just stay calm and follow the steps above. If you’re still having issues you can contact EA…but they’re just going to tell you to do the same thing I just did…
Thus concludes the latest Bug Report….now back to your regularly scheduled Addicts fun!
As 2018 rolls on through so do the mini-events. We’re now into our third mini-event of the year and this time around it’s a revival of the classic, Who Shot Mr. Burns? Yes, we’re tackling the never before seen Part 3 of the Simpsons classic. With a few interesting (read that as weird) twists and turns along the way. Of course, as we’ve said over the last few years, mini-events have become low stress “events” so you can enjoy some relaxing downtime in TSTO, but still have something to keep you tapping every so often.
Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the parts of the Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three) questline, you’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 Sundial & “Get Shot” Animation…what it does and how you unlock it…
