In-Game Update: New Mini-Event, Poochie’s Dog Dayz

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, the new mini-event teased yesterday has launched in Springfield.  It’s now Poochie’s chance to shine!

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to download the newest update from your App Store….

Itchy & Scratchy kick things off with some dialogue about going on strike!  This will be followed by a 6s task for Krusty and 5 Springfielders.  Once you’ve completed that task you’ll launch the Poochie’s Dog Dayz mini-event!  Let’s take a look….

It’s Event Day!

2nd Update: Guys it’s LIVE!  Check out this post for a bunch of details…working on rundown now

Update: Hey guys so the files have hit EA’s game server, HOWEVER it’s not live in the app stores just yet.  Waiting for word from EA if we can release the info we have at this time.  I will keep you posted on that.
In the meantime, this is promising.  Typically (the last few events) the update hasn’t hit the game files until 4-5pm ET (which is like 4-5 hrs from now)…so we could see the update in the app stores soon.  Fingers crossed!
I’ll keep you posted!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So today is the day…the day the latest event hits TSTO!

It’s business as usual, we have no idea when this event will actually hit the app store.  If recent history tells us anything, it’s likely that the event will hit app stores later this evening…usually around 5-6pm ET. (9-10pm GMT) So we’ll have to see what happens.

HOWEVER…an update IS hitting today.  SO DO NOT SEND ANY OF YOUR MAJOR CHARACTERS ON LONG TASKS.  

And as soon as we can give you guys more info about the event we will…fingers crossed that’s soon!

In the meantime feel free to speculate on the Rumor Mill post from yesterday or hang tight until something hits/we can share more info. Anyone else excited for update Wednesday?!

Rumor Mill: Next Event Speculation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Now that we know the next event will hit our games tomorrow I figured we could use tonight to get the old Rumor Mill up and running!  So in the comments below share rumors, speculation and other projections in what you think will be coming with tomorrow’s event!

In the meantime, we should be able to post some info for y’all in the morning.  And keep your eyes on the app stores, Springfield Jobs update hit app stores the night before it went live in our games…it’s possible this one may too.  We’ll keep a lookout!

SPOILER ALERT!! Next Event Info

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some exciting news…

We’ve been working behind the scenes for the last couple of weeks to get on track with a new program EA has launched in conjunction with bloggers and TSTO community leaders (ie ourselves, the forums etc).  With this program, EA plans to give those community leaders a sneak peek at event content and info so that we can share some of the details with you!

We’re thrilled to be working with EA anyway we can to bring you guys as much info as possible!

We’re all under NDA, so please bear with us as we can’t share EVERYTHING we know until EA tells us we can (which is usually how we operate anyway).  But they have given us the green light to release some basic info about the next event.

So no more guessing, we now know WHEN the next event will start and WHAT the next event will cover!  Pretty exciting stuff huh? 

So I know there are a bunch of you who like to remain spoiler free (and this, to me, will not violate our spoiler-free policy as this is information provided to us directly from EA.  They’re giving us the go-ahead to share…) I’ll post the WHAT below the fold. However, I will say the next event will start (as we predicted earlier this week) on Wednesday, May 30th.

So be prepared on Wednesday, May 30th for the event launch

Now on with the spoilers…

App Store Update Available Plus Teaser for Next Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There is currently an App Store update available for download in your App Stores…

While on the surface, and once you download it, it doesn’t look like it does all that much (icon/splash screen don’t change)…it will bring us a little teaser as to what’s next in TSTO.

However, the teaser won’t hit until TOMORROW (May 23rd) at 10 am ET, 1400 GMT.  So, for now, it’s really nothing to see in your game.  Nothing will change, that’ll you’ll really notice anyway.

So for now, here’s a taste of what’s to come tomorrow…

Oh and this puts us on a path for the next event to hit right as May is coming to a close…so May 29th/30th (end date for teaser in the files is the 30th, but that doesn’t mean that’s when the next event will hit.  We’ve seen teasers end after an event has hit)

From the Mouths of Addicts: All I Want for Christmas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters and guest blogger…Happy Tapper! 

Sam has some thoughts, musings and wishes for Christmas in TSTO!  Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s HappyTapper’s (Sam)…and his Christmas Wishes  -Alissa 

Hello fellow tappers. My name is HappyTapper or Sam and I want to start this post by saying … I don’t like Halloween. I’m WAY more of a Christmas lad. Even though we got a pretty naff Halloween event, I’m crossing my fingers for a truly fun Christmas event so that I forget “The Event to Not be Named” (Xmas 2016). As soon as I knew Halloween was getting quite repetitive and boring, I started to plan my perfect Christmas in TSTO because I’m sad, have no life and have nothing better to do then rewatch Simpsons episodes and organise an event that I know won’t even have an impact. When I thought about Christmas in the game I got quite worried because I really couldn’t think of much left to add because there aren’t a lot of Christmas episodes to pull from and the Christmas episodes that they have normally stay local to “normal” Springfield so don’t have much Christmas content for the game. BUT after some Christmas episode rewatching I had an idea for a Christmas event that pulled together bits and bobs of Festive content that I’d really like in the game.

I know that EA will be very near to finishing the Christmas event so I’m not writing this post to give EA an idea, I wanted to publish my ideas and thoughts here because I thought that if I enjoy these kind of posts then maybe some of you will. So let the ramble begin … Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

EA has just released (well ok an hr or so ago at this point…sometimes real life gets in the way of tapping ;)) a new Teaser for TSTO.
