Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The circus has arrived in Springfield! Well…three of them have arrived! Looking for a freak show? The Burnsum and Bailey Circus is here! Traditional circus? Ding-A-Ling Bros at your service! Feeling fancy? Then Cirque de Puree is for you. But which one will rein supreme? It’s up to you to find out in the latest event in TSTO…Cirque du Springfield!
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 March 16th. However, Act 2 will start on February 27th (note the Sunday start date)
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Bart, Burnsum, the Ding A Ling Ringmaster, and Lisa…
Bart: So wait…the Ding-A-Ling Bros. Ringmaster used to be the Bailey in Burnsum and Bailey Circus?
Ding A Ling Ringmaster: That’s right. I was running an ethical, animal-friendly, family circus until this crook forced me out.
Burnsum: I didn’t force you out. I tried to kill you! You cheated death and I hate cheaters.
Lisa: To me, it seems like Bailey wasn’t willing to compromise his integrity for profit. I applaud that.
Ding A Ling Ringmaster: Thank you. You see, Burnsum, even the eight-year-old can spot a phony.
Burnsum: To heck with your integrity. Why shouldn’t I profit by making people feel better about themselves by gawking at freaks.
Bart: I gotta say, Lis’, I’m with Burnsum on this one. Nothing beats a good freak show.
Burnsum: Ha! There you have it, Bailey. Even the little orphan boy can see the magic I bring.
Bart: I’m not an orphan. I have a mom and sort of a dad.
Homer: Eh, that’s fair.
This triggers the Act 2 questline, A Run for Their Funny and is followed by 4hr tasks for Bart and Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (115). A Run for Their Funny 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 2…
Here’s the Act 2 Synopsis from EA:
The Ding-A-Ling Ringmaster reveals himself to be the former partner of Burnsum, aka “Bailey”, who wasdriven out for not wanting to compromise the integrity of the circus. Lisa sympathizes with Bailey and decides to join their ranks.
Bart, always wanting to one-up his sister, decides to join the Burnsum and Bailey circus and volunteers
to help run their freak show. Not wanting to leave the children unsupervised, Marge decides to go with
Lisa and Homer stays with Bart.
The two circuses then start upping their game to win over Springfield. The Ding-a-Ling Bros. Circus
decides to bring a big name into their ranks, Krusty the Clown. Krusty gladly accepts the paycheck and
reprises his role with Ding-A-Ling as Soggy the Clown.
Burnsum and Bailey respond by expanding their freakshow, looking to recruit the many freakish locals that Springfield has to offer. However, things are cut short with the arrival of the French circus, Cirque de Puree, which quickly corners the circus market with their even more death-defying stunts.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the A Run for Their Funny questline, which is what the Act 2 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 2 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 2…
DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 2:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
Burnsum (New Premium)
Ding-A-Ling Ringmaster (New Premium)
Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency. From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event. So Act 1 will be used in Act 2, 3, and 4…etc.
Remember: If you want to know what’s coming in future Acts (Acts 3 and 4) you can check out our Spoiler YouTube Video on the event here. Loads of images and details.
