Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Krusty and the Polystar Exec…

Krusty: What the heck are all these superheroes doing in my movie?!
Polystar Executive: Trust me, you won’t even notice they’re on set.
Airshot: For this next scene, do I take out the bad guys with my missile launcher or my machine gun?
Krusty: I’m NOTICING!
Polystar Executive: Look, Krusty, you still have full control over your project, but we retain the right to retcon crossovers.
Krusty: Ugh, how did I not see this in my contract?!
Polystar Executive: You never read your contract.
Krusty: Right. That’s how.

This triggers the Act 3 questline, Crossover Chaos and is followed by  4hr tasks for Krusty and the Polystar Exec, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115).  Crossover Chaos is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best Splash Screen, Week 13

It was seven years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are seven years later, and it’s time for our eighth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. It is equally debatable how long The Simpsons will keep going. But what isn’t debatable is that there have been A LOT of amazing splash screens in Tapped Out. 63 in fact. before this Bracket Battle begins, with the 64th releasing pretty soon. But which of the splash screens has truly been the best? With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ The Best Splash Screen Bracket Battle.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you had mentioned you’d like a separate reminder post for when the next Act of events will start.  So here’s that separate reminder post…

Act 3 of the Showbiz Showdown Event starts in TWO days, SUNDAY, August 28th, at 11 am ET! 

Act 1 and Act 2 of the event won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished them you have plenty of time to do so. But Act 3 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline, and premium character(s)!

Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 3:

The Polystar Exec (if you purchased him) and Krusty have 4hr tasks to start Act 3.

You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free.  As a reminder, they are:
Polystar Executive (Premium)
Airshot (Premium)
New Premium Character for Act 3 (Premium)

And finally, 1 new premium combo will hit during Act 3 that will help with the event,  As noted above this character will help earn event currency, and you’ll need 150 donuts for that combo should you wish to purchase it.

Gil will also be arriving during Act 3.  His “deal” is 250 donuts.  The items will NOT help earn event currency.

As a reminder, you can see full Act 3 Spoilers (as well as Act 4) here.

And that’s it, all you need to know to start up Act 3 on Sunday!
