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…..

Simpsons are all new tonight with a brand new episode at 8pm on FOX.  Here’s Safi’s post on it.

Halloween Act 4 is still grinding away in our Springfield’s. The entire THOH event ends this Wednesday.  Thoughts?

How’s your Springfield design coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  Don’t forget Springfield Showoff this week!  Submissions due Tuesday.

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods?

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. How can I pick up those 12 golden tickets, without using actual money?
    I initially had a choice to either pick them up or get 2 buildings…I decided to get the two building to get even more money, but I haven’t been able to achieve much from it.

  2. What tasks are available for the hell stage

  3. Was the burning bush removed from the premium store? I was hoping to buy some to finish decorating my hellscape.

  4. Yeah!
    It’s a working, Will!
    With apologies to all and to
    No Time For Sargents

  5. Sorry sorry
    Am I the only one having trouble? I’ve logged out, I, changed password.

  6. THE Uncle Fungus

    I got really excited when i saw the little goblin critters in the loading screen. I clapped my hands and stomped my feet, but the sadness i got when i didnt see them in either the store was like no other. I woulda bought them even if they were like the funzos where they only had like 2 lines of dialogue and an animation. I woulda died for them, i would have made the most ultimate sacrifices to get them, but they dont even show up in the store???? Im so mad and sad right at this hour you have no idea how much i wept as the realization slowly dawned on me that they werent in the game. Days and nights i spent fantasizing about tapping them little creatures and watching them go. Hours of fun i wanted to have so badly. But alas, ea never adds what i want. No matter how many bloodstained ominous letters i send to their developers.

    • The content of the store at this year’s Halloween event was pretty abysmal, would be even worse for those who weren’t in a position to buy or farm donuts as almost everything on sale was only available to buy with sprinkles 🍩😵😵

  7. Am I the only one who keeps getting bumped out and having to log in?
    I can’t LIKE anyone

  8. Happy Sunday

    It’s been a HELL-uva 🔥 Event …. not really Halloween 🎃 themed …. some Prizes were nice, some were ‘meh’ …. and Nevada (like CA OR WA) is having 2 Weeks where we got to decrease covid-19 Cases (or we could face shutdowns).

    I hope all are staying safe, having fun with the new Content (maybe some are figuring out their 🦃 Day plans).

    • Both my kids started remote learning AGAIN on Mon…probably til Jan.
      Lord help me. Lol.
      We’re still all good but Indiana as a whole has been grounded and lost their car key rights. Suck-tastic.
      I havent watched the news in weeks and im a better person without it.
      Hang in there !!!❤

      • News is a nuisance, your 📺 is best spent tuned in to fun programmes (ie finally done watching Swamp Thing adaption for the DC Universe app that was rebroadcast on the CW) 💜

        Stay Safe and yeah I can’t see students going back to a real campus until there are vaccines readily available (but I’m sure they will all know what to do with the Chromebook by now). 😳

  9. I was hoping to get the gray goblins in my game especially if we could tap them for money or a donut. That would have been cool. I liked this event as it rounded out my section of hell nicely and the dialogue was hilarious.

  10. Where are the little gray goblins on the Splash Screen?

  11. Any idea when Black Friday will begin? Fingers are crossed for Nov 18….

    • Black Friday is November 27th. Who knows what EA will do in correspondence with that

    • They did start running it a week early last year.

    • Last year it was released on the same day as the Halloween event ended so it might be the same this year on the 18th or there might be a week’s break between the 2 updates (Halloween and Thanksgiving/Black Friday) with the new update starting on the 25h (the update might be released in the app store a day or so before the 25th).

      • Today on the 17th there was definitely an App Update in Google Play and Apple’s App Store (I haven’t seen anyone comment having an Amazon Kindle). It’s taken almost everything from this Event out of the Game App, except the ‘music and leaves blowing’.

        Let’s see what EA does next 😉

  12. Not a very Halloween-themed event.
    Makes me wonder if the December event will be just about a big Snow Day, rather than anything more Conventionally Festive.

    • It was definitely Hell themed that’s for sure. I think we should hopefully get a Christmas/Winter event this year since last year about a quarter or maybe a fifth of the new items from last year were actually Christmas and Winter related.

  13. I enjoyed this event 🙂

  14. Anyone else getting the neverending spinning donut on the splash screen. I haven’t had access to my Springfield since about 4 yesterday.

    • Bill

      Sounds like you may have to uninstall TSTO, then reinstall TSTO, sign into TSTO (this has happened to some Tappers, even me).

      I will say I have gotten the Bart screen too many times during this Event (and it’s not my internet that’s the problem).

  15. Where are the little gray goblins from the splash screen?
    Those would be nice NPC’s

  16. Happy Sunday everyone

  17. This event has been pretty luck luster. I’m sure everyone is feeling that too.

    • It wasn’t Halloween 🎃 themed …. I’m with anyone who wanted Halloween Costumes for more Characters, for kids in the Game App to be able to trick or treat …. but that small dedicated EA Staff for TSTO isn’t expected to deliver much (at least I got one Character – Fortune Teller – that’s not in the Mystery Box).
