Oh and for those curious…this was the Addicts Christmas Present this year:

Which this year, to me, is symbolic of all the juggling we do on a daily basis.  Between our work life, family life, and TSTO life. 

And as a reminder, here were the gifts from previous years…

One response to “Episode 55- 2019 TSTO in Review

  1. Thank you Alissa, Patric, Safi (and Wookie in spirit) for this amusing – deep – honest review of TSTO 2019! 👍🏻

    I guess we can conclude that as Tappers we can equally agree, disagree, be indecisive about a variety of Content (Characters, Buildings, Decor) – but we also agree to no longer defend whenever EA doesn’t do it right (ie that noise at the load screen isn’t gettin’ fixed, Item Limits is still an issue, Origin Account problems). 😂

    I’m in agreement in that the Mini Events were more rewarding for me then the Main Events, that certain Content was appreciated (especially Characters from Ned Flanders Family Reunion, Shelbyville Buildings and Characters), some wasn’t (ie Dumb Decor that gets Stored, certain Buildings that offered a “?” as to where do I place them since there is no ‘central theme’ they’re based on, rehash of Prizes that were equivalent to 12 🍩’s if you had ’em already, Character Skins that were not rewarding) and cohesive themes (Ned Flanders Family Reunion, Cthulhu’s Revenge, Love Springfieldian Style were tops for me!) 🤔

    I am surprised / not surprised over what were the favourite Events / Mini-Events for Tappers …. it all came down to the Content (you either ♥️’d it, or didn’t ♥️ it) …. and I guess overall 2019 was just middle of the road (well, 2019 was also a Let Down symbolically due to starting out strong / ending like a deflated whoopie cushion, the gaps between Events, the anticipation over if Simpsons Writers had anything new to reveal during E3 – nope not a darn thing new to reveal!) …. except yay for Sky Finger (and yay also if you were able to obtain the Golden Goose Reality from the year prior to get as many Land Tokens as possible!) 🧐

    Here’s my Question – in 2020, should EA / TSTO Staff actively reach out to Tappers thru social networks and inquire what do we want in the Game App? 💡
