So in the comments below share your thoughts about the Rise of the Robots Event as a whole.  What did you like about it? Hate about it?  You know your Good, Bad, and Ugly.  Also, let us know what you wish they did differently, and what you think we might see next in Springfield!

I LOVE having y’all participate in Addicts Live, that’s what makes the show so fun, so please let us know what you think and we’ll share your thoughts on Addicts Live next Saturday!

Also, do you want to join us to share your Act 4/Event thoughts in-person (well over Skype) on the next Addicts Live?  We use Skype to record (so you must have a Skype account), and we record on Thursday evenings usually about 8pm ET.  If you think you want to join us, shoot us an email at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  Can’t promise we’ll get everyone that signs up into the show, but we’ll do our best to make it work. 🙂

  1. Part 2:

    Improvements: (mostly improvements of my cons)

    *More Pos-i-bots could have been added as characters including Melody, Sex Toy, Snooze, Three-Way, Kitchen Bots, Nacho Machine Bot.

    *The 3 Act 4 prize decorations (ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots) could’ve been bundled as one prize.

    **The final prize of the event could’ve been Smashius Clay (as a character with tasks) or the Human Foosball Table & Carnage Destructicus (Killy and Cyborg Willie would’ve also been the premium for Act 4 instead of a Gil deal).

    *Chief Knockahomer, Ralph-O-Cop, and Smashius Clay could’ve fought against each other or random robots in the Robot Rumble Arena (Chief Knockahomer’s task “Pick on Little robots” could’ve also been done in the arena if people bought it and outside the arena if people didn’t buy it).

    *Give the Robot Rumble Announcers 2x the amount of a premium character from tasks like Sherri & Terri.

    *Give the Robot Rumble Announcers a visual task in the Robot Rumble Arena.

    *Give Love Bot and Brenda a task/tasks at the Mr. Sparkle Factory and Thai Food Factory.

    *Give Carnage Destructicus and Bestimus Mucho a visual task at the Human Foosball Table called “Play Foosball”.

    *The mystery box tokens could’ve been included on the prize track along with the prize buildings, and decorations (like they were in the Christmas event).

    Overall, I thought it was an okay event but not the best event.

    In terms of content it was good in the first 3 acts and the last act being a bit of a let down also it isn’t a great way to end the event with a decoration as a prize. I still believe the final prize of an event should’ve been a character and that with this event Smashius Clay as a character should’ve been the final prize instead of them being a decoration that does nothing.

    In terms of story, it was pretty good to go from robots fighting each other to robots taking over Springfield.

    In terms of formatting, I think EA should go back to 4 weeks per event instead of 5 weeks per event. I hope the next event has some tweaks to the formatting since there hasn’t really been any changes to it since last year.

  2. I gave the event a mid B grade, it was good but not great. There was some areas of it that I think EA did well on, other areas that I think EA didn’t do well and things I think EA needed to improve on for the event.

    Pros:

    *Great dialogue for the characters and the event’s questlines.

    *Great character animations and tasks (IMO, Chief Knockahomer, Frink Jr., Bestimus Mucho, Carnage Destructicus and Love Bot had the best visual tasks).

    *Some great buildings including the Robot Rumble Arena and Studio, Springfield Robotics Laboratory and The Prodigy Barn.

    *Some good decorations (IMO, Flanders and Simpson Car Pos-i-bots, Chocobots, ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots were pretty cool decorations).

    *Most of the event is based on 2 episodes instead of everything being picked out from many different episodes.

    *Bestimus Mucho and Carnage Destructicus have permanent tasks at the Seething Sisters (a building that originally didn’t have permanent tasks there).

    *Most of the event’s content is from the same 2 episodes.

    Cons:

    *Some of the decorations should’ve been characters including Smashius Clay, Chocobots, ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots.

    *Act 4 was the weakest act in terms of content since a building, costume and 3 decoration prizes isn’t the best way to end the event.

    *No visual tasks at the Robot Rumble Arena.

    *Robot Rumble Announcers don’t earn 2x the amount of a premium character (like Sherri & Terri) from tasks.

    *Love Bot, Brenda and Carnage Destructicus don’t have a permanent task at the Mr. Sparkle Factory, Thai Food Factory and Human Foosball Table (the items they come with).

    *Bestimus Mucho and Carnage Destructicus don’t use the Human Foosball Table for a joint visual task.

    *No mystery box tokens on the prize track.

  3. Not a great review EA. About time you were shaking things up a bit.
    If you continue with this lame format there will only be a few die hards left playing. Was a great game, possibly Premier League, now sadly Div 2 at best.

  4. C-

    I’m barely 1/2 finished the 4th prize track and I’m not the bothered even a nano-bit.

  5. It’s a D for me. Always the same format with these events. I have been here since the start of TSTO and I’m just going through the motions these past few years. Unless the format changes to something more interesting, my time as a full time player is coming to an end. I feel its time to pull out the last stop, EA, and bring us Troy McClure.

  6. I wouldn’t say it was the Worst. Event. Ever, but this one was a rare total fail. I waited until it was over, bundled up most of the decorations and characters, and put them into storage.

  7. This wasn’t a bad tsto event but they’ve had better. I’m just anticipating what EA has in stored for us next.

  8. I graded the event a C. I am not a fan of robots.

  9. Maybe just me, but these events have list something they used to have. They seem more and more about selling overpriced premium items and less about the event. I’m finding myself caring less and less about these.

    • If you’re talking about the new stuff being overpriced premium items, it isn’t entirely true since all the new stuff (except for the Giant Buzz Cola Can for 20 donuts) costs 150 donuts each because they are character combos.

      If you’re talking about the returning stuff, I do agree with you since some items like Robot Homer cost 100 donuts and don’t even have a bonus % with it.

  10. If I Graded Act 1 and Act 2 as a Mini Event, it would be a fun filled B+ ….. it’s worth repeating that sandwiching 2 Mini Events together in order to create a Multi-Act Event did not work (if it did? I would be reading how this Multi-Act Event’s last Act was awesome …. but it sure looks like Act 3’s good was Act 4’s failure for many Tappers). 🤔

    I ❤️ my Cyborg Willie and Killy the Tractor – that’s all I cared about in Act 3 – I didn’t care for the Treehouse of Horror Segment (Pos-I-Bots), so I had zero interest in Act 3 and Act 4 …. this Event gets a D vs an F (I am disappointed in EA – come on, you had everything set up to give us Visual Character Tasks with 🤖’s Rumble in an Arena! This should have been like 2016’s Superhero Event with numerous 🤖 Characters – not 🤖 Decor – Tappers would have gladly spent extra 🍩’s for! Now there’s Content I don’t care for that will end up in Black Friday that I still won’t care for! That’s what I call L-EA-Z-Y , I still ❤️ what minimal Content I obtained , but a majority is in Storage – or I just stopped Tapping for the 2nd time this year!) 😉
