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…..
Some things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:
Were you excited to see The Simpsons return with a new THOH episode last week? Did you enjoy the episode? How did it fare for the first one to have 5 segments instead of the usual 3 segments? Did you enjoy the segments? Can’t wait for another new Simpsons episode? Well you won’t have to wait too long for the next such episode as The Simpsons is back this Sunday, with an all new episode! Woohoo!
So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode, the season’s fourth episode, this Sunday, October 17th, 8pm on FOX (at the same time on City TV in Canada)….“The Wayz We Were”!
Welcome to Addicts Live! We hope you enjoy this week’s episode, as much as we enjoyed putting it together…
The Addicts Crew is back again with an all-new, episode of Addicts Live! Join Alissa and Safi as we talk about the 2021 Treehouse of Horror Event in TSTO! We break down Act 1, preview Act 2 and where we think things are heading! Be sure to join us for all the fun and excitement!
Murky water, tress have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us! Yes, with this annual event we never know if we’ll get a trick or a treat, if it’ll be Halloween-y or spoof-y…but it arrives in our pocket-sized towns nonetheless year after year. And this year, marks the 10th…yes the TENTH…Treehouse of Horror update in TSTO. So what does EA have in store for us this year? Dinosaurs! In true Treehouse of Horror spoof style. As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on November 10th. However, Act 3 will start on October 24th (Note the Sunday start date).
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Springfielders on how to get rid of the dinos…
Helen Lovejoy: Dinosaurs are destroying this town…not that it wasn’t already in ruins! Grampa: Don’t blame me. Blame dinosaur me! And while you’re at it, could you put dinosaur me out of its misery? Quimby: There’s no need for anything rash! City Hall has contingencies for situations like this. Superintendent Chalmers: The Springfield National Guard? Quimby: Something with even more firepower…the Springfield Militia! Bumblebee Man: Son solo cinco hombres en camiones monstruo! Sideshow Mel: Translating for our English-speaking audience: “That’s just five guys in monster trucks!” Cletus: YEE-HAW! Translating for our non-Hillbilly-speaking audience: “YEE-HAW!”
This triggers the Act 2 questline, This Means Dino Warand is followed by 2hr tasks for Quimby, Sideshow Mel, Homer, Grampa, and Grampasaurus, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (155), and a task to collect/tap 15 dinosaurs. This Means Dino War is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…
Some of you had mentioned you’d like a separate reminder post for when the next Act of events will start. So here’s that separate reminder post…
Act 2 of the Treehouse of Horror XXXII Event starts tomorrow, Friday, October 15th, at 11am ET!
Act 1 of the event won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished it you have plenty of time to do so. But Act 2 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline, and premium character (plus Gil will be making an appearance)!
Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 2:
Quimby, Sideshow Mel, Homer, Grampa, and Grampasaurus (if you have him) have 4hr tasks to start Act 2.
You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free. As a reminder, they are:
Grampasaurus (Premium) New Premium Character for Act 2 (Premium)
And finally, 1 new premium combo will hit during Act 2 that will help with the event, As noted above this character will help earn event currency, and you’ll need 150 donuts for that combo should you wish to purchase it.
Also, Gil will be making an appearance during Act 2. You’ll need 150 donuts available for his latest “deal”.
And that’s it, all you need to know to start up Act 2 tomorrow!
I’ll be back a little later today with the Act 1 Full Dialogue!
Murky water, trees have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us!
Act 1 of this event ushered in one new premium character to help navigate this event. Grampasaurus is an all-new premium character for Springfield, who will not only help earn event currency but also comes with a short questline.
So let’s take a look at the questline for Grampasaurus and the full dialogue for The Dinosaur in the Room…
