Simpsons Wrestling Event SPOILER INFO!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!

The update has hit the game server, so I’m going to release some spoiler images.

Why?

Because we’re all bored at home and need something exciting to help us pass the time.

This is on the server, BUT I don’t see the download available just yet.  Give it a few more hours and it’ll likely pop up in the App Stores for download.  Correction, it’s now available for download…at least on Google.  BUT remember, just because you download it today doesn’t mean it’s live yet.

This event isn’t scheduled to go live until TOMORROW, Wednesday, April 8th, at 10am ET.  

On with the spoilers!  If you don’t want to know, don’t click below….

(Minor) SPOILER ALERT!! Wrestling Event Info!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some exciting news…

EA must know we’re all getting antsy at home because, for the first time in a very long while, we’ve received the content package for the next event from EA…BEFORE the event hit!  Which means…we can share some details in advance with you guys! Remember, 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). And/or the event hits the game files.  But we have 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, as we all thought, the next event will start tomorrow, April 8th

So be prepared on Wednesday, April 8th for the event launch

Now on with the spoilers…

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Still no new Simpsons tonight…bummer.

But…looks like we have an event on the horizon to occupy our time! Did you see this teaser from yesterday?

Another day of social distancing.  How’s it working out for you?  Going stir crazy yet?  Today we’re going to attempt to make some homemade bagels, I’ll let you know how they turn out!

How’s your Springfield design coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  If you need some ideas for the content from No Bucks Given, you can check out the latest Showoff Post here

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

Stay safe.  Wash your hands.  Social distance.    Remember, we’re all in this together.

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

TSTO Teaser: Update Ahead?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Saturday!  I hope you’re spending the day productively, as productively as you can these days.  We spent our morning cleaning the house from top to bottom, even the kiddos got in on the dusting and mopping.  Good family fun lol, but at least the house is clean! (for now)

Anyway, earlier today The Simpsons released a little TSTO teaser their Instagram page…

Looks like wrestling is on its way to TSTO…at least according to the Insta post. We have not received any info from EA on this, and there’s nothing to download at the moment.  So my guess is this is a look ahead at what’s coming this week, something to keep our quarantined minds busy!

Thoughts on a Wrestle Mania event?  What would you like to see?  Do you also think this graphic is just WRONG?! Sound off below…

TGIF- Of Cheaters, Lockdowns and Mask

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Although…Firday doesn’t feel a whole lot different than Mernday. So much for retirement.  All of my “casual clients” in my “semi-retirement” mode, have all been in a state of crazy PIVOT mode…along with all of my volunteer work, and more Zoom hours than any human should have to endure.  I have a zillion balls in the air…and they are all on fire.

I found the last bit of this update, horribly ironic.  There is nothing like a dialogue about cheating in baseball, when we are being cheated OUT of baseball!  One of the things I loved the most about Baseball, was the lack of overt cheating (spitballs and corked bats don’t count).  But, like so many other things…technology has sullied the game I once loved.

Of course the bit about the Isotopes was a thinly veiled reference to the horrendous Astros scandal.  It was funny…mostly… But, it made me think of so many other cheaters in the world.

Springfield Showoff: No Bucks Given

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 sometimes find ourselves 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 and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.
