State of Despair Update is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The new mini-event is live in Springfield!  Provided you’ve downloaded the app store update, that hit yesterday, the event should start up for you when you launch Springfield.

Things kick off by requiring you to build a Brown House.  And then you’ll launch the mini event, with the first task requiring Homer to build a Mystery box, 4hrs.  And you’ll need Springfielders to collect State Pasta.

I’ll be back in a bit with more info as I run through it…

A quick note about the start time.  Totally my mistake guys I’m really sorry.  I wasn’t thinking about time conversion yesterday, and saw 1400 and was like “ok that’s 10am et”. It’s not.  Daylight Savings Time hasn’t started yet, in the US.  It starts during this event (March 10th), so EA accounted for Daylight Savings in the start time despite it not starting yet.  Which means, when this event ends 1400 UTC will be 10am ET, but when it started 1400 UTC is 9am ET.  So what’s the point of this?  Well a really complicated way to say I’m really sorry I screwed up the start time.  And don’t forget, in the US, Daylight Savings starts on March 10th.  

Note on the Amazon Zoom issues: Some players are reporting it’s fixed, others are saying it’s not. I think it depends on if you’re using Kindle or Fire and which version of each.  But honestly, I’m not sure.  I think if they fixed it on some, others may be following.  If you can hold out a little longer…

Also, per Poklfil in the comments,  Galaxy Tab S3 issues are now resolved. Continue reading
