Update #2: Here’s a little more info I couldn’t grab last night:
For the 4hr currency earning tasks.
You’ll also need Homer, Kent Brockman, and CBG free to start the event (6s tasks).
Update: The event is titled Foodie Fight and will start tomorrow (Wednesday, May 19th) at 11am ET (1500 GMT). This will be a mini-event, and we’ll have more details up once it hits tomorrow.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
There’s currently an update available in our app stores. This will remove the Rise of The Robots splashscreen and (I assume) will bring on the next update.
I’m currently at the Little League field watching Riley’s game, so I’m not able to pull files at the moment. Totally flying blind right now. But I’ll take a look at what this new update will bring (which I assume will start tomorrow…Wednesday 5/19) and update y’all a little later.
Note from Alissa…in fairness to Wookiee this post has been sitting in drafts for well over a week. We got slammed with Level 39 and had to push it back. So we’re happy to be able to finally post this awesome read for you guys now! 🙂 (composing myself as I try to stop chuckling… this might take a sec) It’s not every day that one has the opportunity to write a post with a title as silly as that but I’m definitely not complaining. I’m sure all our TSTO veterans get the idea but for any one relatively new to the game i.e. started playing after May 2013, I’m referring to Whacking Day and the probability of another Whacking Day Event in the future.

By now we’re all truly feeling like kids at Christmas waiting for Santa (is he here yet, is he here yet)! We’re all anxiously awaiting the Christmas Update drop from EA (SNOW!!), but the truth is no one really knows when it’s going to hit. EA is holding the “Christmas Cards” close to their chest this go round and they’ve got all of us Addicts on our toes (or hairy paws in the case of Wookiee & Bunny) as to when it’s going to hit.
While we don’t exactly know whenthe update is going to drop there are a couple of things we can see in the game files. The Yellow Subterfuge Episode Tie-In Update is scheduled to “dive” away tomorrow morning (Tuesday). At which point Santa could make his appearance…or EA could just play more “reindeer games” with us and see just how crazy we can get! (I think Bunny’s already gone mad with the anticipation. Last we heard…the orderlies were hauling her out of her hotel room in a cute white jacket that allowed her to hug herself.)
Starting to feel like you’re going a little crazy? Worried you might turn into Bunny? Here are some things you can do to help you “Keep Calm and Tap On” while waiting for Santa:
-The Yellow Subterfuge Episode Tie-In IS ending on 12/10/13. So make sure you’ve completed the quest, you’ve unlocked Oscar’s Obstacles Truck (it will be stored in your inventory once you do. Once it’s in your inventory it will stay there forever, or until you remove it), and if you were thinking about purchasing the USS Tom Clancy you do so before tomorrow. Once the update is gone you’ll miss out on your chance to purchase the Submarine for your Squidport!
-Check out Wookiee’s latest WAWW- Holiday Edition for some fun predictions on what EA could be providing us with this year.
-Check out our Christmas Preview post, for some steps you can be doing to help prep you for the Christmas Event.
-Start planning your holiday design for our Christmas contest, where you can win FREE DONUTS!!
And now for a little homework….
Join the conversation and tell us in the comments below what you’re hoping for this Christmas update & what you’ve been doing to “Keep Calm & Tap On”. We love hearing for you and can’t wait to see what you’ve all been doing to keep from turning into Bunny while waiting for the update to hit! (or maybe you’ve turned into Bunny…in which case tell us how you’re going crazy…)
Here’s hoping the forecast tomorrow calls for a little snow in Springfield!
