Friday Filler – Sometimes You Hafta Do the Hard Stuff- Even If It’s Easy


Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Holyfreakinshirt!  What day is it anyway?  I know I’ve complained about this before, during this “interesting new version of normal.”  But dammit…nothing is normal right now…except for TSTO.  It is sooooooo normal, that it is making me insane.

There is little doubt that we are stuck in a rut…and the people who are “coming back to the game,” after layoffs of  year, or even two (especially those who have been gone less than two years) have GOT to notice.  If you are paying attention, you will notice that almost nothing has changed in format in months, and months and months.  This isn’t a new observation…but, it really is like seeing an “Under Construction” sign on a new building…leaving for a year or two, and coming back to see that only the sign has been repainted.

And I’ve had enough. I’m going to get answers.  I’m going to call “EA Bob” and find out what the hell is going on, (besides very little.)

Here’s my list of things I’m going to ask, when I grab him between pizza runs on his side hustle, from his clearly part-time job at EA.

Simpsons Wrestling Act 4 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that TOMORROW morning, May 5th, Act 4 of the Simpsons Wrestling Event will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET.

The Acts 1-3 questlines won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Act 4 starts.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Act 4 to start…

During Act 4 we’ll reach the exciting conclusion of the Wrestling Event, and see if Bart can save Springfield! Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for all the Act currency tasks should be used for the Act 4 currency tasks, including a brand new one for Act 4! So we’re looking at:
Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Grampa
Burns
Smithers
Moe
Prof. Werner von Brawn (Premium)
Rumbleina (Premium)
Beefy Bishop (Premium)

New Premium Character for Act 4

You’ll also need Burns and Dr. Bonebreak free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during Act 4, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for Act 4.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Act 4 to start up tomorrow morning!
