App Store Update: Game of Games

Update: Spoilers packet just came in from EA, so I’ll have a spoilers post up soon.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A major event update has FINALLY hit the servers!  Game of Games is available for download in the app store…

Yes, I’m a little late for this one… I guess that’s what happens when you’re spending quality time with your kiddos before bed..

I’m going to start pulling info for this one…but just because the app update is available does not mean the game is live yet.  The update itself doesn’t go live until TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 12th) at 1400 UTC/10 AM Eastern Time. 

Heaven help us if this is another Bart Royale event…I may lose my mind…

Here are the characters you can expect… Continue reading

In-Game Update: Real Moms of Springfield (Starts TOMORROW, 5/15)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Matt Selman was right…it’s update day in TSTO!  An in-game update has hit our games, however, the gameplay is not currently live.  Which means, we’ll have to wait 1 more day for new stuff to do in TSTO.

This appears to be a pretty standard mini-event coming our way.  New characters, new skins, new buildings, new decorations, and new premium items to buy!

Again, this all launches TOMORROW, May 15th at 10am ET, 1400 UTC.  

(It ends on May 29th, so 2 weeks from start time)

A couple of notes…it looks like with this update they tried to fix the Amazon issue, and I’m seeing reports of players saying it is finally fixed!  Great news!  (now if they can just fix the S10 issues, but I digress…)

Another note, those experiencing lockout issues on the S10, I believe this is only happening to folks outside the US and Canada.  Mostly folks in Europe (particularly UK), and I think I’ve seen 1 report in Australia.  Not sure if this is related to a Samsung software issue in those areas or not, since it seems to have happened after you did a software update on the S10 from Samsung.

I think, based on this content, this was supposed to launch last week (given that Mother’s Day just passed), but it appears that between the server issues and trying to (finally) fix the Amazon issue it was held up.  Hopefully, now that those issues are addressed, we’re back on the road the regular updates again!

And finally, here’s a sneak peek at the characters/skins/items arriving…

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW…I’m making an exception to my regular “no spoiler” rule because it’s been FOREVER since we had an update.  So if you don’t want to know, don’t click below…

What You Need to Know for the Next Event, And Spoilers!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So as we teased about 6 minutes into the last episode of Addict’s Live, we received the spoiler/details content packet from EA Friday evening for the next event!

As you may remember, we’ve all signed onto an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with EA over the summer to receive early information about events.  Since that time there’s been some confusion about what can/cannot be posted and when.  Sometimes dates are specified as to when we can post, and other times no dates are specified.  So we’re never quite sure what is and what isn’t under embargo until the event is released.

If you’ve been a follower of this site for a while, you know that I ALWAYS err on the side of caution when it comes to releasing game content. And I’ve been this way even before we started with the NDA.  Way back when, a lot of readers commented that they like minor spoilers, but they still like to be surprised with certain elements of the game.  After all, who wants to watch a movie you’ve never seen when you already know the ending? Not to mention, often information released in “the files” prior to an event has been changed once it hits the game.  So we’ve always taken this cautious approach.   As I don’t like to be the bearer of Fake News…

So, what did I say all of that?  Well mostly to let you all know why we’ve been very cautious about information released and some other sites may not be as cautious.

Now, all that being said there is some information I feel comfortable releasing to you know that the next event is so close to starting.  Some basic information I’ll share at the top of this post, and more spoiler information we’ll cover below the fold.  So if you don’t want to know, and you enjoy being surprised, you can still be surprised but you’ll know some rough information about the event that may help you get started.

So here’s the basic info…

-The next event is a Valentine’s Day focused event
-The event starts on January 23rd (10a ET/1500 UTC) and ends February 19th.
-It will follow the same multi-event format Christmas did. (4 acts. 1 week per act)
-Because it’s a multi-event that means there is no crafting.
-The core Simpson’s family will play a role for all 4 acts.  (core family = Family + Grampa)
-For Act 1 Lisa, Marge, and Bart are required for the first objective.
-In addition to the core Simpson family, you’ll also want to keep Milhouse, Flanders, Ralph, Skinner, and Martin free for Act 1 tasks.
-As far as how many donuts to save for the entire event…typically events run between 650-800 donuts for all new content.  That’s a safe bet to save for any new event. (except for mini-events, those are always way less)

It’s possible we’ll see the app store update for this today, but the event will not start until Wednesday 1/23 at 10a ET/1500 UTC.  So even if you download it today, it won’t start.  So don’t go crazy wondering where it is.  Just be patient. 🙂  

And that’s it on the basic info.  So now we’ll cover the SPOILERS.  So if you don’t want to know don’t click below…

Black Friday 2018 Preview ***Spoilers***

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re nearing most Tappers favorite day, Black Friday!  Yes a day when all those premium items you’ve been eyeing go on deep discount.  Of course, this is TSTO and everything has a twist.  This year’s twist, just like last year’s, is that you can’t just outright buy something.  Everything comes in  Mystery Box!  So if you’ve been eyeing that one particular character you may have to clean out a box to do so!

So, as we’ve done in the past, let’s give you guys a preview of what’s in store starting TOMORROW…November 20th.  Yes, that’s right.  Black Friday gets earlier and earlier each year.  Apparently EA couldn’t wait until Friday, instead, they have the items hitting Tuesday.

Note: Once they’re live I’ll start posting typical Mystery Box posts with links to Should I Buys for each box.

(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…

7/10/18 App Store Update

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like EA released the removal update a little early, as there is currently an app store update available in Android (I can’t check iOS and Amazon at the moment) that preps for the removal of the I&S Event.  However, I want to stress downloading this update will NOT remove the event from your game at this time.  The event will not officially end until the timer runs out tomorrow.  So don’t panic.  This update will, however, change your app icon and splash screen back to normal.  As well as make a few other changes.  So, let’s take a look….

WARNING Potential next mini-event spoiler at the bottom of this post…
