Friday Filler – Looking Back…Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Back

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

In the spirit of the TSTOAddict’s 5- Year Blog-O-Versary, I dug waaaaaaaaaay back into the annals (please note the two “n’s) of my archives and found some of my very first TSTO Posts Ever…including a “Hump Day” post (it’s not what you think it is), from one of my first posts with the Addicts Team.

What I found truly interesting, is that in some ways, “the more things change, the more they remain the same” (their have always been glitches, and people complaining about them).  What truly made me laugh, is that there were so many references to being “inundated with updates”…which were happening at a clip of one every two weeks.  Oh…good player…be careful what you wish for, right?

It’s kind of like a version of “Remember land lines? Remember Blockbuster Video?” while pointing out some of the incredible advances the game has made over the past 5+ years since we have been blogging about it.

Addicts 5-Year Look Back: Kwik-e-Mart Farming for Free Donuts!

Super Safi has been an official member of the Addicts staff for nearly two years now and in that time he’s given us loads of stats, strategies, tips and bracket battles!  Not to mention he’s a fixture on Addicts Live!

Way back in 2016 Safi wrote the strategy post to end all strategy posts.  A post Addicts, and non-Addicts, have been reading, referencing and linking to whenever the subject of Free Donuts comes up.  Yes, Safi was the original author of Kwik-e-Mart farming for free donuts!  A post, I’m sure many of you have read before, all about how to buy and sell KEMs to earn free donuts in TSTO!  I thought there’s no way we can have a look back week without including this classic from Safi!

So now I’ll turn it over to Super Safi and his stats and strategy in Kwik-E-Mart farming…

Addicts 5-Year Look Back: Sarah Wiggum

So my main role on this site has always been game content.  I’m the one (usually) writing update rundowns, walkthroughs, should I buys and general “how-tos”.  They have always kept me busy and I like doing them (most days). I always enjoy getting to explore the ins and outs of the game and sharing it with you guys, after all that is the primary function of this site right?

So when it came time to look in the archives for posts I’ve written it wasn’t as easy to find one to post this time around.  After all who wants to re-read a walkthrough from Level 36?  BUT I did remember that, back when I wasn’t a mom and had way more time on my hands, I used to occasionally write things for fun. Sometimes opinion pieces about an event, other times in-depth WDTCF like posts.

Some of those WDTCF posts were for a series of posts we used to do called The Real Housewives of Springfield (we also had a similar feature for the men of Springfield called Mad Men of Springfield).  And then I remembered, Sarah Wiggum!

As y’all may recall from episodes of Addicts Live, or even some of my posts, I’ve long been advocating for Sarah Wiggum to join our games.  So long, in fact, it goes back to the very early days of this site when I focused a Real Housewives of Springfield piece on Sarah Wiggum herself.  I tried to make the compelling case on the Springfield NEEDS Sarah.  Apparently, four and a half years later, it didn’t work…since Sarah STILL isn’t in Springfield.  Hopefully, this time around it’ll make EA see Springfield needs Sarah.

So without further ado, let’s travel back to the winter of 2014…
