Update: It appears we have our first bug of the new content. Part 1 of the questline is supposed to give you Aristotle (full character) if you don’t already have him, however, it’s not. And you need Aristotle to complete part 1 of the questline (can’t send Burns without him as it’s a joint task). So quite a few players are stuck right away on part 1.
No workaround at the moment, have to wait for it to be patched. You can try to contact EA and see if Customer Support can add him to your inventory, otherwise, we just have to be patient.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So it’s 10am here on the East Coast of the US and that means Marge at the Bat is now live in our games.
As I mentioned a few times, it appears there is no new content with this one. It’s an 8 part questline (that will take approx 32hrs to complete) and a bunch of returning content (some for Free, some for donuts).
You’ll have two weeks to complete the questline and purchase items you’re eyeing, as this content is slated to leave our games on April 24th.
Here’s a look at what’s inside…
This update is kind of fun, questline wise because the dialogue combines two fun Baseball/Softball episodes of The Simpsons….Homer at the Bat and Money Bart.
I’ll post a full dialogue version of the questline a little later, I’ll hold off on a Turbo Tappin’ version. But for those who want to know who to keep free/when here’s the list:
Questline is called Marge at the Bat
Pt. 1- Burns, Aristotle, and Smithers (4hrs each)
Pt. 2- Smithers and Burns (4hrs each)
Pt.3-Lenny, Barney, Disco Stu, and CBG (4hrs each)
Pt.4- Marge and Burns (4hrs each)
Pt. 5- 3 team members, Lenny, Carl, Homer, Stu, Barney, CBG, Moe, Zutroy, or Baseball Jasper (4hrs each)
Pt. 6- Lisa and Marge (4hrs each)
Pt. 7- Marge, Burns, and 3 Team Members (4hrs each)
Pt. 8- Homer, Marge, 3 Team Members (4hrs each)
Free Characters/Skins Awarded with questline…
Softball Burns- Free with part 2 of the questline (note: Softball Burns got a little makeover. The arm angle of his unlock screen is slightly different. The first image is from Tapball, the second is included with this update. Just an interesting aside…)
Returning Premium Content… (if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you!)
And that’s it guys. A new questline, sports-related returning content, and two weeks to have some fun with it all!
