Well…I am hoping that all of you “got it all” during the Egyptian Era portion of our little Time Travel Toaster Update. I took my own advice, and bought the TreeHouse Slide…which seemed to help propel me to an early finish, without buying any of the other Premium Items.
I am hoping the same is true with the Pirate update, as I really do love things that float…and nothing floats my boat like a Pirate Ship! (the sexy pirate not so much… but fair is fair…right?)
This last segment is a tad shorter (thanks for listening EA) but kind of overlaps with the 4th of July…so here’s hoping EA didn’t forget the 4th!
The Calendar looks do-able. Batten the hatches…hoist the jib…and set sail for TREASURE! (or at least an animatronic facsimile thereof~). Continue reading →
I have been warned by Mom (Alissa) not to write the kind of post that I would have written as CrankyOldGuy on my old site. I think that goes without saying, as I am a far LESS cranky guy these days, after several months of being here at Addicts.
That said, I think you will get my general impression as far as what I think about the way things went during the Prehistoric (Post-Hysterical?) Act I of the Time Travel Toaster event that EA unfurled.
The response to the poll was huge…as in FAR larger than most of the polls done by news agencies during the political season. More than 4,000 players responded! This can certainly be considered “empirical data” to which EA should certainly take a serious look (especially if they want to keep players happy, and playing). The results are fairly self-evident…with only a few minor surprises and anomalies. Continue reading →
Update: I know some of you had questions about Willie and Skinner…BOTH the final prize of this act (Taskmaster Willie) and the premium Pharaoh Skinner are costume/skins NOT full new characters (like Caveman Moe was). So yes…EA wants you to pay 150 donuts for a skin…
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on because it’s time to Walk Like an Egyptian through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the Egyptian Era…
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Lisa, Wiggum & Pharaoh Ziff will start this for you with dialogue. This will be followed by a 4hr task for 5 Springfielders.
Just a quick note…an in-game update hit and fixed a few issues. Along with the bug fixes it also dropped currency payouts for the Excavation Site and Dinosaurs tapped…
Excavation Site now pays out 36 per square you did (instead of 42) and the dinosaurs now pay out 5 when tapped (instead of 7). It also lowered the Specimen and Techyon payouts from the Dig Site as well.
It also changed the you can earn from the Daily Challenges, lowered each group by a few hundred.
Looks like EA saw players were completing it quickly and adjusted accordingly. Still very doable, just keep doing what you were doing!
