Rise of the Robots Act 3 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Robots are coming, the Robots are coming! Get ready for a dystopian Springfield, as the robots try to take over!  Can they be stopped?  It’s up to you to save Springfield in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Rise of the Robots!  As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on May 12th.  However, Act 4 will start on May 4th (Note the Tuesday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Brockman, Marge, Homer, and Smashius…

Brockman: In a turn of events that surprised absolutely no one, Smashius Clay and his small robot army have begun to conquer and enslave Springfield’s human population. Join us after the break when I will reveal my feelings about our new robot overlords.
Marge: Homer, this is terrible!
Homer: Are you kidding? The robots canceled all “organized human activities”, including work! WOOHOO! Hashtag Team Robot!
Smashius Clay: Come, Homer Simpson! You are our slave now, and we’ll be putting you to work in pointless menial labor for our amusement!
Homer: Aw! What’d I do to deserve this?
Smashius Clay: Our friend the bear robot says you were “very handsy”.
Homer: But…he’s so furry! I couldn’t keep them to myself..

This triggers the Act 3  questline, Who’s the Bot, and is followed by a 4hr task for Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115).  Who’s the Bot is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…

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…..

No new Simpsons this week, but don’t worry they’ll be back in a few weeks!

Lots of things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:
