Looking Back on Bracket Battles

Bonjour Brilliant Beautiful Bracket Battle Best Buddies,

 

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of characters, buildings, skins, episode content, celebrities, etc. in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game.

Don’t believe me? Well let’s take a look back at all of the previous Bracket Battles and see how much is left.

 

 

The original Bracket Battle in Summer 2016 was designed to determine the ‘Most Desired Character’. It started with 64 characters broken down into 8 categories – Men, Boys, Pets, Combos, Doppelgangers, One Hit Wonders, Girls, and Women.

  1. Not the right place I know, but have not been able to log in for the last 24 hours. I m in Italy if it makes any differenc

  2. I look forward to any bracket battle (I say that now ) .

    Spoiler Alert Bellow⚠️ if you didn’t already hear about the next event…

    It might be nice to do a robot bracket battle (of robots not already in the game, nor the robots coming into the game in for the next event).

    Or characters, items, buildings within those episodes or segments that the upcoming event still hasn’t selected.. To be fair I know having a bracket battle while a major event is going on isn’t realistic ; and the question was regarding the Summer, this is what came to mind… but something that you may consider after the event as well.
    Actually Season one characters and items, and building not in the game is another idea.

    Sorry, I’m just excited that Bracket Battles will be returning.

  3. I’ve always felt I didn’t know enough, or had no strong opinion. Either that or I came late to the party and my pick had been knocked out.
    I’ll try an make the effort next time though, even if my choices do end up being a bit random 🤪

  4. Bueno Diaz Safi and fellow Addicts!

    I can’t stress enough how much I 💜 the Bracket Battles (even if what I pick doesn’t win). I sure hope EA pays attention (wishful thinking – lol), an I hope other Tappers appreciate Safi’s efforts, too.
