The End is Near for Hell on Wheels…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Hell on Wheels Event Ends TOMORROW May 18h.

It’s time to for the cars to hit the road 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.

Should You Buy Truckasaurus II?

(Just a side note here…if anyone in the US is willing to go to Costco and look to see if they have baby formula for me please email me at Alissa@tstoaddicts.com.  Our Costco’s are completely sold out, and obviously baby Teddy needs formula as he’s only 6 months old…thank you!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Spending actual cash on donuts for an item is once again here in TSTO.  This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a limited-time, item to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.

And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these items for the event itself.  You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free.  These cash-for-items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.

This time around we’re being offered Truckasurus II, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of the plow and anything else you might be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy…

Reminder: Hell on Wheels Act 4 Starts Tomorrow!

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 4 of the Hell on Wheels Event starts TOMORROW, May 10th, at 11am ET! 

*Remember this the FINAL Act of this event.  So all questlines need to be finished by the time Act 4 ends on Wednesday, May 18th*

Acts 1, 2 and 3 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 4 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline, and premium character(s)!

Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 4:

Homer, Marge, and Maggie each have a 4hr task to start Act 4.

You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free.  As a reminder, they are:
Homer
Bart
Marge
Lisa
Krusty
Cletus
Lenny
Carl
Kliff (Premium)
Vaclav (Premium)
Antoine and Zora (Premium)
New Premium Character for Act 4 (Premium)

And finally, 1 new premium combo will hit during Act 4 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.

As a reminder, you can see full Act 4 Spoilers here.

And that’s it, all you need to know to start up Act 4 tomorrow!

I’ll be back a little later today with the Act 3 dialogue!
