So last night a short little teaser hit our games…presumably for the next event…Homergeddon.
This is a short little teaser, complete with one new item (free) and a questline. It’s really short and lasts less than a week. End date is slated for January 23rd, which I assume is when the next event will hit.
So let’s break down the details & because it’s short, the questline too.
Contest is Now Closed. But feel free to still share your thoughts in the comments. Winners have been selected and I’ll have a post up once I confirm with the winners to announce them. (So check your emails) Thanks!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So Homerpalooza is nearing the end, remember it ends tomorrow, and we’re all gearing up for the “next big thing” in our Pocket-sized Springfields. But before something new hits I want all of us to take a step back and think about TSTO in general.
The last few weeks I’ve been seeing LOADS of comments from you guys about why this event was both good and bad and many of you have been commenting that TSTO isn’t holding your interest lately. And you’ve heard our thoughts on the subject in many posts and most recently on our latest episode of Addicts Live.
So now it’s your turn. What I want to know is what you think could be different for events in TSTO. What could EA change that would make you really excited to play? What would hold your interest? What would keep you engaged? What type of events would you like to see?
In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?
Several weeks ago we challenged you guys to design the next event (whether large or mini) of TSTO with our Main Event Contest and holy smokes did you guys respond big time! Y’all never fail to amaze us, we were completely blown away by your entries!
Over the past week the Addicts staff (Bunny, Patric, Wookiee and I) have been reading each and every one of your entries, in our effort to narrow down the top 10. One thing we discovered is you guys have some AMAZING ideas! It was a real struggle to narrow down the field to just 10 finalists, but we finally all came to an agreement on the Top 10. Trust me….no easy task!
So with out further ado…let me introduce to you the 10 Finalists for the Main Event Contest…
On Saturday another round of the Lunar New Year questline was released and this batch of dialogue was FULL of hints and “tip offs” for the next event in TSTO. As promised in my post Saturday, now that (I hope) everyone has had a fair chance to read the new dialogue.
Between the app store description and the Facebook teaser (from last week) alone, I think by now it’s safe for all of us to assume/anticipate an “Around the World” event. So when will it start? What will it do? And what the heck are we supposed to do with those dang pins? Well let’s look to the in-game dialogue for clues/answers to all those questions and more.
