60 Free Donuts From EA!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry guys, I meant to post this yesterday but it’s the weekend and my brain just kind of checked out.

Seeing loads of you asking about why we’ve gotten donuts from EA.  So here’s the deal.  Some of you, pretty much only those of you on iOS, will see this when you log into your game (or you saw it already)…

EVERYONE received the 60 Free Donuts…but not everyone saw the message in-game.  For whatever reason, Android users didn’t get the popup, but the donuts were awarded.  (which is what’s causing the confusion for some players)

The donuts are basically an apology and a thank you from EA for the game being screwed up recently.  Between the Bart Screens and the massive donut buying glitch (mostly the donut buying glitch).

Both issues seem to be resolved at this time, and EA’s trying to make it up to everyone…even if you weren’t impacted!  So a kudos to EA for the goodwill to the players! Hopefully, this is a sign EA’s working to get back in the good graces with the TSTO Community and we’ll see good things in updates ahead!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

In-Game Update: THOH XXX Patches and Repairs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I’m a little late to the party on this…my apologies.  I was picking kids up from school, feeding them dinner, and getting them ready for bed.  But this evening there was an in-game update…as many of you commented…that repaired a few things (Wailing walls and donuts)…

Bug Alert: Donut Purchases

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Making a separate post for this so it’s not missed…

If you’re looking for info about Week 1 of the THOH event, go here. 

Real quick, Seeing a bunch of reports from you guys that the option to buy $19.99 worth of donuts is either missing or broken.  By broken, I mean…you can buy it and spend the money but you’re not given the donuts. If this happens to you contact EA.

Update: Apparently this is happening on multiple donut package sizes.  Do just don’t buy donuts right now
If you did buy donuts and are having trouble getting through with EA, you can contact the store (iOS or Google) and let them know what happened.  They’ll refund you pretty quickly.

What I can tell you is, it looks like there’s going to be a donut bonus offered with the $19.99 Truckload of donuts during this event.  That may explain why it’s missing or you’re having problems with it.

As a warning to others…until this is resolved DO NOT BUY THE 19.99 DONUTS!

Yearbook Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Wowsers the latest mini-event to hit Springfield brought us the ultimate Mystery Box!  With over 700 items (737 at my count), the Yearbook Mystery Box is the largest single Mystery Box to ever hit our pocket-sized towns.

This isn’t your ordinary Mystery Box.  No, this is a premium box full of almost every limited-time (and not so limited-time) premium item and prize to ever hit Springfield.  It’s pretty insane.

Because this box is different than a standard Mystery Box I’m going to treat this post different than the standard Mystery Box post.  For starters, this is going up shortly after the event hit our games because I know this is the info you’re all really wanted to know.  And I’m going to breakdown what’s inside, as well as give you some tips to get what you really want in Springfield.  So let’s take a look…

Advanced KEM Farming – Should I always go for 3 donuts?

Salutations Stats & Strategy Specialists

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)

 

A couple years ago, I wrote a post about KEM farming (which can be found here) and how it yields donuts. Since that time, many of you like myself have gone on to grow your KEM farms to over 100 KEMs, earning over 100 donuts every 4 hours, as you have raised your XP bonus percentage into the thousands.

At this point, some of you may wonder is it worth always going for 3 donuts when you fill an XP bar? Or are you better spending that money on additional KEMs?

Let’s take a look and see…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Peak Inn & Lyla, Baby Gerald, Santa & his House, or the Stable at the Inn ?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
