More (Late) Prognostrication from Wookstradamus

A day late and a dollar short.

I’m sure regular readers have noticed I haven’t been around as much with school going on. Life has been crazy and between school, work, and life, there’s not a lot of free time. One thing that does bring me joy though in the moments I have to myself is writing here, doing my geek podcast, and playing the silly little mobile game which led to the writing gig in the first place.

Over the last week, I’ve been working on another speculation post based on the hints EA gave us with the take down of the Vacation Event. I love that they’re giving us teases which actually pan out and I feel it poignant to point out that a lot of folks guessed from the last one that Rommelwood Academy was in our futures. I wasn’t one of them but oh well. It definitely fits into the idea of Military Miseducation.

But wait!?! Didn’t the most recent one thing say something about misfires in connection to the military? I don’t see anything which falls into that category unless you count the premium missile with a drawing of Homer on it so it while I initially thought about scrapping this entire post as being too late to matter, instead of wasting the time it took to get it done, I figured it couldn’t hurt to still present my ideas. Heck… even a broken clock is right twice a day so why not prognoscticate like the Wookstradumb@$$ I am?

In Game Update: Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we’ve got ourselves an in-game update on our hands.  This time we’re celebrating Chinese New Year!

This is an in-game update…nothing to download from the App Store.  It should download into your game automatically and start up with some dialogue between Lisa and Homer, this will be followed by a 4hr Task for 3 Simpsons to Clean. 

If you don’t see the dialogue launch try hard closing your game…if that doesn’t work restart your device. And of course make sure you’re in an area where you can download (ie Data over your phone or Wifi)

Going through the update now myself…but I’ll be back shortly with more info… More info below the fold…

Prognostication with Wookstradamus

So EA took away our snow and brought us a winter take-down update. While I find my Springfield to be glaringly green all of a sudden and miss my Wookiee Winterland, this time of year always leads to some speculation about the future of the game. Of course, EA made that even easier with some teases in the app store descriptions.

iOS and Android – The New Year has been rung in, and the soggy decapitated goat heads have been wrung out. With Springfield getting back to normal, what will be next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? A valentine visit from a gluttonous gal? Maybe some military miseducation? You’ll just have to wait to find out!

Amazon – The heretics have had their time and a new year has been celebrated. As the religious riots settle and the townsfolk get back to their normal lives, what’s next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? An invasion of bow wielding gnomes?

I must admit, I laughed at these as I often do. Whoever writes the script for the beginnings of updates gets two furry thumbs up. Anyhoo… all these questions got me thinking about what the clues might mean. In a typical fashion, I sat down in the attic, blew the Cheetos dust off my fingers, and thought and thoughts and crunched and thought about what each hint made me reminisce about from the Best. Show. Ever. With some good thinks accomplished, Alissa convinced me to share my fuzzy thinking with all of you. I won’t share my cheesy poofs but I guess you can have my ideas. With all that being said, here’s Wookstradamus Prognostication based on veiled hints from a clever writer at EA.

Hey EA… it’s been a while but WE still want things!

Hey there Addictereenos! So I’m texting with Alissa the other day and she’s all “hey Wook… you think you’d have time to do a What the Addicts Want post?” and I’m all “Sure thing boss.” I think if I’d known (or remembered from the last time) what I was getting in to, you might not be reading these words right now. I dredge through the site looking for the last post to use as an example and realize it’s been two years minus a week since we did one. TWO YEARS!!! The horror!

Why would the Wookiee be so remiss in compiling what people wanted? Well the answer became quite clear to me as I did just that. From January 2015 to now, wading through comments and writing down what people asked for, there’s words to describe my efforts that aren’t PG enough for here. Then I remind myself how much I love this community and just get through it. Jebus knows I’ve gone through tougher things than compiling a list. Long story short… truly, all of you really have some great ideas as evidenced by the last list and this one. If you’re interested in what I highlighted this time… click more.

Addicts Question Corner Winter 2016: Act 1 (Gnome Issues, Singing Stones, Clues for What’s Next, WTF is Going On Around Here?!…and more!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! (Or as Jim Nantz would say…Hello Friends)

Ah do you hear that?  That’s the sound of Tappers everywhere taking a breath and my heart rate very slowly coming back down to normal levels.  Ah….

With all of the craziness of the first 2.5 days of this event, it’s time to return to normal.  Normal is needed around here for so many of you, and for the sake of my sanity.

Believe it or not, through the insanity of the comments, some of you have had legitimate questions/concerns about this event.  So in the spirit of returning to business as usual, let’s address those questions in another rousing edition of Addicts Question Corner!

If you’ve got a question about the event check out this post first, if you don’t see your question addressed leave it in the comments below and we’ll get to it.  Now on with the show post!

TSTO Speculation brought to you by dialogue and free time

Hey hey hey tappereenos!

So one of the things I do on occasion here is point out some speculatory ideas based on dialogue bubbles in the game.  I did it back during Level 42 and also from bits prior to January 2015.  Interestingly, quite a bit actually appeared later in the game whether you consider it coincidence or not.

What a Wookiee Wants: Valentine’s Day 2016

Love is in the air they say… or is it smog? I always get those two mixed up. Is there a love alert today? Do we have to keep the kids indoors? Is Cupid polluting the atmosphere? Even in the middle of a mini-event, I find myself wondering what is coming down the pike in our beloved game. Even after 2 years and 4 months of content, there’s still so much that could be added. Every once in a while, I put on my thinking cap and consider some options. Here’s what a Wookiee wants for VD.  (Not VD lol)

HEY EA!!! Here’s some more of what the Addicts Want

Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh! Boooooooooooooooo! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr… EA stole my beautiful snow and made future so bright I gotta wear shades! Boo hoo!

Oh hey there Addictereenos… so I’m still lamenting the thaw in my town.  I really love snow-time in TSTO.  Of course that made me remember reader ideas about a weather button in our towns to bring back snow which got me remembering more of the great ideas you guys and dolls have.  Every so often, I try to highlight these ideas into one big post and here it is.

Diary of a Wookiee: More Dialogue Speculation/Potential Spoilers?

Hey hey hey Addicts!

So it’s late-ish in the evening and I was pottering around the mass screenshots and dialogue I save when I realized it’s been a little since the last time I threw out some speculation on the site.

EA sometimes throws out little items in their dialogue boxes that get all us nerds frothing at the mouth for potential new items.  Could they be showing us glimpses of the future?  I figured it’s no fun to have all these thoughts and questions up here in the attic so why not share.  If you’re curious, go right on ahead and click for more.

What the Addicts Want (besides land and the monorail)

What’s up Addicts?

So a year has come and gone on this site and I thought the perfect way to start off a new year was with another listing of things YOU want in the game.  The last time we did one of these lists was back in January and February.  Since then, we’ve collected quite a few from those posts, our Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA and in assorted comments I saved. If I forgot anyone, I apologize and I admit to editing some items for readability or conciseness.  There really are some great ideas below.
