The End is Near for Showbiz Showdown…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Showbiz Showdown Event Ends TOMORROW September 14th.

It’s time to for the studios to move out and for something new to arrive in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any Act questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

As far as what is going to happen AFTER the Event… well, we can’t know… until it is over. Until then all we can do is speculate. So, patience. We all have to verify what happens after together.

We should see a week off, as the Shattered Dreams Box is slated to end next week.  Which means we should be seeing our next (likely mini) event start on September 21st.

Also, It’s EA so who the heck knows…

(and don’t forget about Showoff!  Submissions are due tonight!)

Now as far as what is going with the Event, here is a brief rundown…

  • Questlines linked directly to the progression of the event will go. Like the Main Questline that pulled you through all 4 Acts. (unless you’ve started one, any questlines started you’ll be able to finish that part one the event ends)
  • However, the questlines linked directly to the prizes and Premium Characters you’ve won will remain. (so Hydrangea, Moby Man, etc.)
  • The event removal will likely require an app store update to fully remove it from your game.  So don’t panic when the timer runs down and the event isn’t out of your game (or the splash screen remains the same)…  It will require an app store update to remove everything.

I know some of you still try to push that last few minutes of the collection as far as you can. However, EA has really shut off the ability to play on “borrowed time”.  In other words, once the timer runs out the ability to collect prizes ends.  So don’t count on getting any extra time with this one.  Try to finish everything up before the timer runs out tomorrow morning. 

So finish up those questlines, relax, and wait to see what EA has next in store for us.

I’ll be back later today with the final dialogue for Act 4 of this event, to wrap it all up.

Oh and another reminder…don’t forget Springfield Showoff!  Submissions for your event designs should be emailed ( by tonight.  So please be sure to send them in! 🙂

Are you sad to see the event go?  Or ready for it to finally be over?  How did you do with the prizes?  Get everything you wanted?  What are you hoping to see next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I’m assuming there will be a mini event before the Halloween event?

    • Time will tell. But the past few years, it’s alternated between Major Event and Mini-Event. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Mini-Event next.

    • Yes. We’ll likely see a mini-event trigger next week (Wednesday) and my suspicion is Halloween will start immediately after on October 5th. (and just to finish out the year…we’ll probably see a Thanksgiving mini-event around the 16th of November, and Christmas trigger around the 7th of December.) All speculation of course, but that’s how I think things will shake out.

  2. What time does the event end tomorrow?

  3. Already shut down! Bummer.
