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…..

We’re in the final days of the Itchy and Scratchy Land Event!  Have you finished the Act 3 prize track?  Thoughts on the event overall as we wind down?  Which premium items were your favorite?  Which prizes?

What do you think will be next in TSTO?  We know there’s always something around the corner with this game…

How about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Hopefully you’re staying cool!

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!

  1. Bettinyc, I didn’t mean to do it. Really I didn’t. I could blame the terrible lag in the game, but really I should have been more careful. I’m truly sorry.

  2. Now that Krustyland is part of Springfield, does anyone know if Krustyland tickets will be merged with ISL? Should I cash some of them out to invest in Springfield Heights? Otherwise what use do/will they have?

  3. Just curious, why do you think it is a scam app?

  4. I’m sure this has been mentioned before, but where are the itchy and scratchy topiaries. EA creates a splash screen for the event, and has the sky finger placing itchy and scratchy topiaries as one of the main images on the splash screen, but then doesn’t include the topiaries in the game. They’re not a prize to win, they’re not an item to purchase with in game cash or donuts and they’re not an item to craft.

    WTF EA!

  5. Howdy, all! I’m still trying to earn more track pieces to creat an oversized Zoominator, and hoping I can get all I need before the event ends. Also hoping I’ll be able to leave it running, but we’ll see how that goes!

    I was inspired to leave this message on the whiteboard for my coworkers last week:

    Happy Monday! To paraphrase Dory… Just keep tapping! Just keep tapping!

  6. I took the entrance to Krusty Land out of inventory and now I can’t put it back. Why did they do that? Please someone at Ea change this so I can put it away,
    I don’t need it anymore. And Krusty’s head is so big there is no way to hide it.

    • I have a couple things from SH that also can’t be stored…they’re way up in a remote corner set up just for items I don’t want, but can’t store.

  7. I’ve been done with this event for a few days.

    I don’t mean I completed the prize track. I haven’t for this act or the last one. I refuse to spend any donuts on it, either. I’m just done. I’m not playing this completely unentertaining, unfun event any more. First time in five years I haven’t cared even a little bit about an event. Bleh.

  8. Hello to all!
    I happened to accidentally stumble on this site, and I’d like to tell you all a story!

    I’m currently 19. I downloaded TSTO almost 6 years ago, when it came out. As a Simpsons fanatic, I absolutely loved it! I played it every day. Now keep in mind, I downloaded it on my dad’s iPad. So as everyone probably knows, purchasing donuts is encouraged in the game. You probably see where this is going…
    So me, a dumbass idiot 13 year old, decided hey! I’m just gonna spend 10$ on some donuts. Nobody will notice! And I did. And it was the biggest rush Id ever experienced. So of course, I did it again. And again. And again. But you know how as you abuse something more and more, the effects wear off?
    So that fateful day, I got out of bed, went downstairs, and there was my dad, holding a piece of paper. It was a bill for 1000$, entirely from donuts, on the Simpsons Tapped out. If only a could have tapped out of the beating that was laid on my completely deserving stupid ass.
    Anyway, long story short it took me 3 years to pay it off and I won Stupidest Kid of the Century award.
    Thanks for reading!

    • If this game had existed when I was your age, young fella, I’m guessing I’d have been in exactly the same boat!

    Any word or idea on when the app issue on the I-phones is gonna get fixed? I bought a new phone and use to get on the app to read up on stuff a lot.

  10. There is mobile trivia game called HQ. It usually plays every 9PM Eastern with some games at other time. Sunday the prize with $25,000, Monday it is $5,000. It is split among all who finish the quiz, usually 12 question. I have won 2 (total $4.20). On Fridays it allows you to see your friends answers. If you are new to the game you can give an extra life to someone who refers you (use tstofan2666 if you want to give me one). If you already playing use the same code to become my friend for Friday games. If you play the game 5 days in a row it will award you a extra live (limit of use one per game up to the last question). The all time winners has earned $25,211 so far. This week #1 player has earned $177 so far.

      In other words a reward for playing everyday, donuts cash but bigger pay out than the daily challenges and when there’s an event a final hidden prize when completed. Shake things up EA

      • Actually wasn’t thinking of EA. It is just a fun game, for those who like Jeopardy. Except it is multiple choice (3), 10 seconds to answer (no changing answer) and goes from extremely easy (who is buried in Grant’s tomb) to very hard (from geography (what capital city borders two countries), (what video game a character was introduced), grammar, vocabulary, science, music (lots of rap questions), movies, or whatever they think of).

        Still in kind of beta mode. Takes about 15 minutes (some hosts like to talk a lot and there are occasional glitches – most infuriating is when phone stalls).

  11. I didn’t enjoy this event at all, and I did not complete a single wave of the event, the first time that has happened since I got a device I could play on in 2016. I ended up having to spend donuts on Bort and probably will for Colonel Punishment as well. Didn’t like the premise of destroying Krustyland, I put a lot of work into mine. I did not get Scratchy or Mrs. Itchy. Rare as I usually get all the characters.

    I play this game way too much.

  13. Since placing the zoominator at the start of Act 3 i am no longer able to navigate my town. I am unable to zoom out anymore. It has been really frustrating when it takes nearly an hr just to just get around. I contacted EA no reply. Also it has gotten quite laggy. So this act i have been unable complete. Has anybody else had this issue?
    The weird thing is this morning it was fixed so i was grateful. Now i turn my tablet back on and i am unable to zoom out again. So frustrating. Makes me not want to play anymore.
    Also with all the hype by everybody i thought this event would be different but no. The same format for the last 3 years. Everybody complains about 3 acts like me yet EA seems to not listen to their customer base and try to flogg overpriced characters. TSTO i think ur on ur last legs. Fix the lagging issues, the constant crashes, being able to zoom out, the same old formag etc. EA if u can’t fix these then tsto is dying a slow death.

    • Now i can zoom out again. So weird

    • Disconnecting one of the pieces on each track made SOOOOOOOOOO much difference! I am now free to move around Springfield again!

      • Turned tablet on tis morning can’t zoom out again. Ahh well i am going to spend my money on war robots. A game that doesn’t crash, isn’t glichy and it actually runs properly.

  14. Do you guys have any ideas/preferences for future events? I know Clown College and Bart On The Road have been teased in update descriptions, but is there anything else you’d like to see? I recently started playing again (after a brief 4-year hiatus), and I don’t know too much about what happened during my absence.

  15. I hate that anytime I want to store or move something more than one item that it takes I swear 2-5 minutes to complete the move. I have to set my iPad down and walk away. It never used to be like this but the last year has been horrible. I hate that now it selects roads/docks and other objects when I try to move things. I have to turn off roads and other objects. I don’t understand why they changed it to include those things. I hate that when you used to have bushes or an object in your inventory that when you ran out of that object it would take you to the store to buy more and continue with said object, now it just gives you some random object in your inventory you don’t want to place on your land. I don’t understand how you go from a tree to suddenly it wants to place a car or some random mismatched item. End rant!

  16. Just got the last prize and I’m sending him on his task so I can start earning bonuts. This event had potential and it was greatly underwhelming. I was wondering if there was gonna be some sort of bird creature in the event since it was on the back splash, no topiaries either.

    Besides a free itchy, the only part I liked about this event was the dialogue that itchy had and the roger Meyers sr statue dialogue.

    Oh and getting the extra land tiles for nuking Krusty land

  17. I got the final prize two days ago but just unlocked the last two craftables and need 7000 tickets to get them. It’s been a long time since I’ve struggled with crafting like this.
