Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Something I haven’t said in 35 days…it’s update day in our Pocket-Sized Springfields!
If you’re having trouble getting the event to start, first make sure you’re at least at Level 15 (as that’s the requirement), then try hard closing and restarting TSTO. This should be an in-game update, so an automatic download. Nothing else for you to do. If you’re still not seeing it try uninstalling and reinstalling TSTO.
Yes, if you saw the news yesterday, the Real Moms of Springfield mini-event has arrived in our towns! Not only do we get a new mini-event, but it appears that this update has also fixed the Amazon zoom issue as well!
Things kick off in Springfield with some dialogue between Ruth and Marge, followed by 6s tasks for each. This will be followed by more dialogue and the event launch. For the first part, you’ll need to complete a 4hr task for Marge and collect 150 “Crappy Mother’s Day Gifts”.
This mini-event ends on May 29th (10am ET, 1400 UTC)
Working on updating this post guys but just found a bug the the questline, so stopping for a minute to cover that in another post …so keep checking back, as it’ll say update and complete when finished..

200 150 NOTE: FIXED There is a bug with part 3 of the questline. Read this post before starting part 3.
A quick workaround for the stall is: find the characters that earn the currency and select them via their individual task list…
Again, characters that can be sent: Marge, Lisa, Bart, Homer, Helen Lovejoy, Ruth Powers, Apu, Manjula, Sarah Wiggum and Jerri.
1 new premium combo with this one and a bunch of returning stuff…
A note on Maw: Maw Spuckler was originally a character available for a cash purchase, she came with a Truckload of Donuts. Now EA is offering up JUST Maw (no donuts) for 80 donuts. This is a trend they’ve been doing lately, but it’s not anything malicious. Basically, Maw was a bonus item for buying a Truckload of donuts, (just like Sven was a bonus item for buying a tray of donuts and so on) you paid for the donuts and got a bonus. Nothing to call and demand a refund over, as you received the donuts you purchased. The character was just a bonus item with that purchase. Frustrating, but not malicious or “illegal” on EA’s part. Since you paid for donuts, and you received the donuts…
And that’s it my friends, the details on the Real Moms of Springfield mini-event!
As always, more posts will follow…until then have fun!
