Update Alert: Holidays of Future Past is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fifteen days into 2020 and we have our first update of the roaring 20s!  To, what should be, no one’s surprise…it’s a mini-event!  What are we covering this time?  The future!  (insert loud groan from Patric)

Holidays of Future Past is officially live in our towns…and with it FINALLY arrives future Homer and Marge.  Two characters I was incredibly annoyed weren’t included with the previous future updates.

Remember, if you haven’t downloaded the update from the app store (it hit last night), you’ll need to do so in order to see the new content.  This update will remove the snow from your Springfield, so be prepared for that. And if you don’t see the update available try these steps:  Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device.  When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.

What’s included with this event?  Let’s take a look….
Note: You’ll need the Simpson family free for a 6s task to kick things off. 

Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event Ends January 29th

App Store Update: Simpson Babies

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, EA seems to have a knack for knowing when I’m enjoying some downtime at home…

A brand new update his hit the servers!  Simpson Babies is available for download in the app store…

I’m going to start pulling info for this one…but just because the app update is available does not mean the game is live yet.  The update itself doesn’t go live until TOMORROW (Wednesday, August 7th) at 1400 UTC/10 AM Eastern Time. 

Here are the characters you can expect… Continue reading

App Store Update: Game of Games

Update: Spoilers packet just came in from EA, so I’ll have a spoilers post up soon.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A major event update has FINALLY hit the servers!  Game of Games is available for download in the app store…

Yes, I’m a little late for this one… I guess that’s what happens when you’re spending quality time with your kiddos before bed..

I’m going to start pulling info for this one…but just because the app update is available does not mean the game is live yet.  The update itself doesn’t go live until TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 12th) at 1400 UTC/10 AM Eastern Time. 

Heaven help us if this is another Bart Royale event…I may lose my mind…

Here are the characters you can expect… Continue reading

In-Game Update: Real Moms of Springfield (Starts TOMORROW, 5/15)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Matt Selman was right…it’s update day in TSTO!  An in-game update has hit our games, however, the gameplay is not currently live.  Which means, we’ll have to wait 1 more day for new stuff to do in TSTO.

This appears to be a pretty standard mini-event coming our way.  New characters, new skins, new buildings, new decorations, and new premium items to buy!

Again, this all launches TOMORROW, May 15th at 10am ET, 1400 UTC.  

(It ends on May 29th, so 2 weeks from start time)

A couple of notes…it looks like with this update they tried to fix the Amazon issue, and I’m seeing reports of players saying it is finally fixed!  Great news!  (now if they can just fix the S10 issues, but I digress…)

Another note, those experiencing lockout issues on the S10, I believe this is only happening to folks outside the US and Canada.  Mostly folks in Europe (particularly UK), and I think I’ve seen 1 report in Australia.  Not sure if this is related to a Samsung software issue in those areas or not, since it seems to have happened after you did a software update on the S10 from Samsung.

I think, based on this content, this was supposed to launch last week (given that Mother’s Day just passed), but it appears that between the server issues and trying to (finally) fix the Amazon issue it was held up.  Hopefully, now that those issues are addressed, we’re back on the road the regular updates again!

And finally, here’s a sneak peek at the characters/skins/items arriving…

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW…I’m making an exception to my regular “no spoiler” rule because it’s been FOREVER since we had an update.  So if you don’t want to know, don’t click below…
