Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 3

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.

Where Did THAT Come From – Honest John’s Computers

Beep beep boop… blop bleep bloop…. Schereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeechhhhhhhh….

Anyone besides me remember the days before computers? I know I’m not that old but it’s hard not to operate in today’s modern world without some sort of computer, tablet or tapping device. Remember when parents gave their kids a pager and a few quarters? I still reminisce about when my Step-Dad probably spent more money than we should have to build his own computer and I got to go on AOL. There were also great DOS servers you could go to for lots of text based games via your modem. Ah… the good old days…

Anywho… Level 44 arrived for tappers and the one of the buildings was Honest John’s Computers. Let’s take a look at just where this item originated.

WDTCF – Phineas Q. Butterfat’s

How are my favorite tappers doing?  I bet by now a lot of you are done with Level 38 and just itching for the next content to ignore your family and obligations with, right?  Well… If my Wookiee senses are working correctly, I think we should be entering the Valentine’s Day arena very soon.  I hope I’m right and that EA brings a couple of my wish list items from WAWW part 1 and part 2.  Beside indulging me, the way EA could really show some love to all us tappers would be to bring back buildings from last year’s event.

My favorite of them was Phineas Q. Butterfat’s.  While admittedly, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I certainly love me some ice cream.  This building came our way during the 2013 VD Event for free.  All we had to do was earn some event currency (hearts) and the building was ours (probably sounds familiar, right?).  The building generates $275 and 22 XP every 16 hours.

WDTCF – Howard’s Flowers

Say you don’t need no tapped out game and I’ll be mortified… give me at least one free donut and I’ll be satisfied… I ain’t got enough time or money…. EA can’t buy me love…. Can’t buy me love love, donuts can’t buy me love, can’t buy me love love, no no no no…. Oh… hey there Addicterinos.  SOrry about that, you know me and my silliness.  I don’t know about you but I am so getting in the Valentine’s Day Spirit.  With the upcoming S.A.D. update headed our way (or so we all think, who knows, EA could surprise us), I really hope they bring back all the decorations, buildings and characters from last year’s event.  (insert shameless plug for previous post here)

One of the buildings was Howard’s Flowers.  We were able to get it by collecting 25 hearts (the currency for 2013 VD).  It’s a unique looking building that I’ve heard quite a few tappers pine for.  Not a bad one either as it generates $200 and 17 XP every 10 hours.  I’ve had mine close to the Hospital for forever it seems with my other VD decorations.

WDTCF – Springfield Grocery Store

In life, there are wins and losses.  For me, I try to concentrate on all the wins.  Did any of you read a little post I wrote last week?  I may have mentioned a certain grocery store in it.  Sure it was in reference to a Valentine’s Day wish list, but looky here, looky here… BAZINGA… the Springfield Grocery Store!

Where did THAT come from – Bachelor Arms

Hey hey hey Addicterinos!

No more mist, no more ghoulies, goo, gremlins or haunted buildings!  Who knew there was so much money to collect in your town, right?  The vandals are back to spray paint your useless, errr, I mean non-money earning buildings (well… some of them) and Level 37 is here.  It’s officially Milhouse Day!

Milhouse Day

Level 37 already seems like a pretty swell update to the game and as further proof that EA loves us, we got another female character (150 for a character/building ain’t too shabby, eh?) who just happens to be the better half of Milhouse’s parents.  For free (my favorite number by the way), we also got Mr. Van Houton with his apartment building but where the heck does THAT come from?

I Can Use Donuts to Buy Game Money, Why Can’t I Use Game Money to Buy Donuts?

Update 9/29/16….Since writing this post there are now ways added to the game where you can technically use in-game cash to “buy” donuts. Check out this post to learn more about XP and Donut Farming.

There’s no clear cut answer to that only theories but TSTO is a “freemium” game, which means that you can play the game for free and still have it be very enjoyable but there are also premium content additions that can take the game to another level. And if you want that premium content you have to pay for it.
It’s also doubtful that there will ever be an option to turn game money into donuts. EA is a business, businesses need to make money in order to pay salaries. The income from the donut purchases are what go into creating new levels and content for the game.

Keep in mind though they may still do a promotion where you can convert another type of game currency you earn into donuts, like they did last Christmas with Santa Coins.

Remember: Donut Purchases=new content
