These days TSTO seems to be all about the downtime. That dreaded word so many long-time players hate to see. Let’s face it, these days even when there’s an event (or mini-event) going on there’s still LOADS of downtime in TSTO. It’s funny because we used to crave downtime because the events were so intense we wanted time to figure out what to do with the items. With event tasks becoming more mundane with every update, it can leave some Tappers frustrated at the shell of what TSTO used to be.
This game used to spark ingenuity, creativity, and fun with players. If we wanted a design, or particular “look”, in Springfield we had to think of creative ways to make it happen, as we weren’t just given the item. Things like drive-ins, parking garages, skyscrapers, and more…now they’re a staple in the game, but “back in the day” we used to have to come up with creative 3D designs to make these ideas come to life in our town.
It’s time to go back and see if we can reignite that creative TSTO spark for many of us…and bring back the reasons many of us fell in love with this game in the first place.
Over the next few weeks (or months), as time allows I’m going to be going back into our archives and breathe new life into design posts from 5-6 years ago. Ideas to get the “creative juices” flowing. Or, as Patric might say, this is my own version of DID…
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 a frequent commenter that you may have seen helping fellow Tappers in the comments, Sraige Arturas!
Sraige has taken the time to write a very detailed post all about nuking and rebuilding your Springfield! Enjoy it Tappers there’s a ton of useful advice in it!
Oi Oi Oi! How are all my favorite vikings, mages, elf lords, goblins, orcs and hobbits doing? Anyone geeking out with me right now?
So unless you’ve been living in a bunker for fear of the unknown, you know that a Clash of Clans (CoC) Parody is upon us in TSTO. While I’ve read mixed reviews about this new event, I give EA an A+ for doing something no one was expecting. As far as requests from tappers go, I don’t think I ever saw someone say they should bring elements of a strategy game to TSTO. Admittedly I don’t hang around too much on other forums (who has the time?) but I’d remember seeing that because my first response would have been “Oh dear Jebus, please no!”
