Show Notes:

Here’s the chart we talked about in the video…since recording a few more people voted changing the totals slightly…

Also, we missed Santos L Halper’s feedback comment when recording (it came in after we recorded), so here’s what Santos had to say…

I gave the event a mid B grade, it was good but not great. There was some areas of it that I think EA did well on, other areas that I think EA didn’t do well and things I think EA needed to improve on for the event.


*Great dialogue for the characters and the event’s questlines.

*Great character animations and tasks (IMO, Chief Knockahomer, Frink Jr., Bestimus Mucho, Carnage Destructicus and Love Bot had the best visual tasks).

*Some great buildings including the Robot Rumble Arena and Studio, Springfield Robotics Laboratory and The Prodigy Barn.

*Some good decorations (IMO, Flanders and Simpson Car Pos-i-bots, Chocobots, ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots were pretty cool decorations).

*Most of the event is based on 2 episodes instead of everything being picked out from many different episodes.

*Bestimus Mucho and Carnage Destructicus have permanent tasks at the Seething Sisters (a building that originally didn’t have permanent tasks there).

*Most of the event’s content is from the same 2 episodes.


*Some of the decorations should’ve been characters including Smashius Clay, Chocobots, ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots.

*Act 4 was the weakest act in terms of content since a building, costume and 3 decoration prizes isn’t the best way to end the event.

*No visual tasks at the Robot Rumble Arena.

*Robot Rumble Announcers don’t earn 2x the amount of a premium character (like Sherri & Terri) from tasks.

*Love Bot, Brenda and Carnage Destructicus don’t have a permanent task at the Mr. Sparkle Factory, Thai Food Factory and Human Foosball Table (the items they come with).

*Bestimus Mucho and Carnage Destructicus don’t use the Human Foosball Table for a joint visual task.

*No mystery box tokens on the prize track.

Part 2:

Improvements: (mostly improvements of my cons)

*More Pos-i-bots could have been added as characters including Melody, Sex Toy, Snooze, Three-Way, Kitchen Bots, Nacho Machine Bot.

*The 3 Act 4 prize decorations (ATM Pos-i-bot, Squishee Machine and Hot Dog Cooker Bots) could’ve been bundled as one prize.

**The final prize of the event could’ve been Smashius Clay (as a character with tasks) or the Human Foosball Table & Carnage Destructicus (Killy and Cyborg Willie would’ve also been the premium for Act 4 instead of a Gil deal).

*Chief Knockahomer, Ralph-O-Cop, and Smashius Clay could’ve fought against each other or random robots in the Robot Rumble Arena (Chief Knockahomer’s task “Pick on Little robots” could’ve also been done in the arena if people bought it and outside the arena if people didn’t buy it).

*Give the Robot Rumble Announcers 2x the amount of a premium character from tasks like Sherri & Terri.

*Give the Robot Rumble Announcers a visual task in the Robot Rumble Arena.

*Give Love Bot and Brenda a task/tasks at the Mr. Sparkle Factory and Thai Food Factory.

*Give Carnage Destructicus and Bestimus Mucho a visual task at the Human Foosball Table called “Play Foosball”.

*The mystery box tokens could’ve been included on the prize track along with the prize buildings, and decorations (like they were in the Christmas event).

Overall, I thought it was an okay event but not the best event.

In terms of content it was good in the first 3 acts and the last act being a bit of a let down also it isn’t a great way to end the event with a decoration as a prize. I still believe the final prize of an event should’ve been a character and that with this event Smashius Clay as a character should’ve been the final prize instead of them being a decoration that does nothing.

In terms of story, it was pretty good to go from robots fighting each other to robots taking over Springfield.

In terms of formatting, I think EA should go back to 4 weeks per event instead of 5 weeks per event. I hope the next event has some tweaks to the formatting since there hasn’t really been any changes to it since last year.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the event…time for another fun and exciting prize post!  Yes, I know they’re your favorite, don’t even try to deny it.  Ok, you can deny it.  I think we probably feel the same way about these….but they still must be done! Otherwise, what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now?  Act 3 of the Rise of the Robots event consists of 1 new building, 3 new decorations, and one new character.

So let’s take a look at the prizes on the Act 3 Prize Track: The Flanders Car Pos-i-bot, Simpson Car Pos-i-Bot, Springfield Robotics Lab, and Giant Buzz Cola Can (Bestimus Mucho (a full character) we’ll break down in another post)

Springfield Showoff: “FREAK” Point (FP) Items

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to.

So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Showoff Reminder: “FREAK” Point (FP)Event

Originally I wanted the Olmec Head for Showoff tomorrow (well later today now for some of us), but due to all the OTHER cool things I was seeing with the new “FREAK” Points FP Social Event (yes, I said FREAK. Lol. Long story.) I decided to add the other two FP Social Event items too. So show me your Olmec Head, Singing Sirloin, and/or Homer’s Car. I want to see what YOU have done with them. Where YOU put them. How YOU incorporated them into your town.
