SPOILER ALERT! 2018 THOH Act 1 Synopsis and Images

(Minor) SPOILER ALERT!! THOH Event Info!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some exciting news…

We’ve received the content package for the next event from EA!  Which means…we can share some details in advance with you guys! Remember, we’re all under NDA, so please bear with us as we can’t share EVERYTHING we know until EA tells us we can (which is usually how we operate anyway).  But we have the green light to release some basic info about the next event.

So no more guessing, we now know WHEN the next event will start and WHAT the next event will cover!  Pretty exciting stuff huh? 

So I know there are a bunch of you who like to remain spoiler free (and this, to me, will not violate our spoiler-free policy as this is information provided to us directly from EA.  They’re giving us the go-ahead to share…) I’ll post the WHAT below the fold. However, I will say the next event will start (as we predicted earlier this week) on Wednesday, October 3rd.  And if they follow the trend of the last few events, it’s likely the event will hit the app store Tuesday October 2nd but not officially launch until Wednesday. So keep in mind you may see it in the app store before it’s actually live in game to play…

So be prepared on Wednesday, October 3rd for the event launch

Now on with the spoilers…

Trouble With Super Powers Questline

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Seeing a number of questions/complaints/concerns over the Super Powers questline.  Since the mini-event ended last week a number of you are stuck in limbo with the questline.  It’s stuck on your task list but you’re unable to complete it…mostly because you cannot collect additional ooze.  So I want to address this in one post, so those of you asking in comments and emails have a point of reference….

Missing Friends

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s late here so I’ll write more about this in the morning… but that’s a new bug in Springfield. Surprise!

This is getting ridiculous.  Now neighbors are missing.   You go to your friends list (neighbors)  and no one is listed except Other Springfield.  It’s not just you… it’s now widespread.

Missing entire friends lists.. are you kidding me?!  What’s next? Squidport suddenly going to disappear?  The town going to blow up again?  EA this is getting freaking ridiculous will you fix your damn game already? 

Patric adding to this…
It is likely that this issue is also related to the login issues that people have had all day. I suspect that there is a serious problem with user IDs.

No solutions yet… this is turning out to be a “wonderful update”…but, you had to expect this with Itchy and Scratchy. A TV show inside of a TV show is never good! Messes with the time/space continuem.

Don’t panic. They are going to have to fix this one…

UPDATE…they are back. We’ll see if this helps with the login issues. – PM

Addicts Question Corner: Itchy & Scratchy Bugs, Tips, Tricks & Rants…Oh My!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Itchy and Scratchy Land hit are games yesterday and wowsers is this event full of issues or what?!  Reminds me of the “old days” of TSTO, back when every event promised to be Simpson filled and bug riddled.  For those of us who played TSTO between 2012-2015, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

It’s been relatively calm in the world of TSTO, when it comes to bugs, for the last couple of years.  Sure there have been a few…and the rollback one is a HUGE one…but it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it was a few years ago.  Well…Itchy and Scratchy (always looking to destroy something) sure changed that!

From reading your comments, and boy have you guys been commenting the last 24hrs, the general consensus is the vast majority of you are pretty pissed off.  Whether it’s your game freezing, your game lagging, you’re just generally pissed they eliminated Krustyland or something else there’s a lot of ticked off Addicts around here!  So let’s get to some of your general complaints and see if we can help you fix some of the issues you may be experiencing…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, the day has finally come…it’s time to get rid of Krustyland forever!  The newest update to hit TSTO finally axes Krustyland!

This update should autostart for you, with a 6s task for 3 Springfielders.  After that, you’ll be prompted to nuke Krustyland.  You cannot progress until you nuke Krustyland.  It’s not something you have to do immediately, but you do have to do it (or it’ll be done for you) by Monday, June 4th.

So let’s break down the newest update, shall we?

Update: Rundown post is live. It should answer most of your burning Krustyland questions….you can find it here

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ok guys, the update is live in the app store (right now it’s only on Android.  If you don’t see it restart your device and search the app store for Tapped Out).  While I’m working on the rundown post i wanted to give you guys the spoilers we originally received from EA for Act 1.

So for those who want to know click below, if you don’t want to know don’t click below….

For those concerned, we’re not changing our Spoiler policy.  These are Spoilers we received directly from EA as part of their new program to reach out to the TSTO Community. Because these are confirmed by EA and we have the authorization to release them, we’re releasing them.  Beyond the information provided directly by EA we’ll still operate as business as usual and we will always warn you before spoilers are posted.

SPOILER ALERT!! Next Event Info

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some exciting news…

We’ve been working behind the scenes for the last couple of weeks to get on track with a new program EA has launched in conjunction with bloggers and TSTO community leaders (ie ourselves, the forums etc).  With this program, EA plans to give those community leaders a sneak peek at event content and info so that we can share some of the details with you!

We’re thrilled to be working with EA anyway we can to bring you guys as much info as possible!

We’re all under NDA, so please bear with us as we can’t share EVERYTHING we know until EA tells us we can (which is usually how we operate anyway).  But they have given us the green light to release some basic info about the next event.

So no more guessing, we now know WHEN the next event will start and WHAT the next event will cover!  Pretty exciting stuff huh?

Rollback Bug “Solution”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it seems we finally have a resolution to the Rollback Bug. While it doesn’t seem to be the solution/resolution many of us were hoping for EA has come out with their plan to “fix” to Rollback Bug.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Rollback Bug check out this post.  Or this episode of Addicts Live.

Many of you who have reported the bug to EA should have received an email yesterday about their solution to the problem.  Thank you to many of you who forwarded this email to me.  Too many of you to name, but I appreciate you all taking the time to pass the info over to me.  And yes, you all got the same email.

So what does it say?  What’s their solution?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading
