Sunday Night Open Thread- Easter Edition

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Did you all have a good Easter?  A nice relaxing day for everyone?  Get any Tapping in?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to see if we can shake any Golden Eggs outta Bunny!  (I already tried…it didn’t work!)   Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!  (this is very quickly becoming our favorite time of the week by the way!  You guys have some AWESOME things to say!)

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 Sunday Night Open Thread.  Well…Easter hit our games this week AND it’s Easter Sunday!  What are your thoughts on the event and your day?  MLB is in full swing and the NHL is on the hunt for a champion!  No, new Simpson episode tonight…they’ll be back next week.

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, updates, eggs, NHL,  MLB or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Easter!

Happy Easter From TSTO Addicts!

Hey Howdy Hey Zapping Tappers!

Well Easter Sunday is upon us and you know what that means……time to collect the REAL Easter Eggs!  (I wonder if I can count them towards my Gold Box?)  You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Easter Update here), as the Addicts staff celebrates Easter by spending a little quality time with our families!    But don’t you worry we’ll be right back at it tomorrow!  (and of course we’ll pop in with any new developments that happen throughout the course of the day in the world of TSTO…we’re Addicts too ya know!)

You may still see us floating around in the comments but for the most part we’ll be attempting to figure out why Bunny doesn’t give us eggs when we bop her on the head!  And don’t you worry…we know how much you guys are loving the Sunday Night Open Threads (we do too!), so we’ll have one going tonight around 7:30 EST for our favorite Addicted Tappers to sound off about anything and everything that comes to their mind.

We’re truly blown away by the amazing community of Tappers we have here at Addicts!  Over the last 5 days we’ve fielded over 6,000 of YOUR comments (not to mention over half a million hits…in 5 days!) and loved every minute of it!  You guys are constantly making us laugh and we absolutely LOVE helping you whenever/however we can!  You guys truly are the BEST. READERS. EVER!

So from all of us here at Addicts we hope you guys have a FANTASTIC Easter!  And don’t forget to keep Zapping and Tapping those bunnies!!

Much Love to Our Favorite Tappers!

Basket Glitch

UPDATE FROM BUNNY 4-22-14 3PM EST: 
I was on the phone with EA for a while asking a million questions. They are all on high alert with the Basket issues, egg issues, etc. They have been working round the clock to locate and fix the cause of the issues and to get an update to resolve it out as fast as they can. No word yet on the Updates day of release, just that this is priority there right now as it is impacting so many and preventing game play.

So in short, hang in there…they are working on it. No word as of yet if this will bring a time extension or how they will handle that part of it. I will let you know if I hear anything more on the matter. And of course we will be here to let you know when the update arrives.  

 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A few of you are reporting problems with your Easter Baskets…you put them out for friends to leave you eggs and they do…but not long after to start to notice the eggs have disappeared!

If this is happening to you, don’t panic.  This is a KNOWN glitch in the game and EA is currently working on fixing it.  We are suggesting if you’re having problems with your baskets that you post your info on this thread from the EA website:
http://answers.ea.com//t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/easter-basket-bug/m-p/2676860#M71869

We also suggest that you contact EA directly to let them know you’re having the issue.  One of our readers inkans is having the same issue and contacted EA.  They left this in the comments:

Alissa – I chatted with EA about the disappearing eggs from the baskets. They are aware of the issue and are working on a fix for it: Thanks for the tip to contact them!

EA:
I checked this information from our end and found that some of the customers have already reported this issue. Our developers are aware of it and are working for a resolution. We appreciate your patience while the issue is being looked into.
Me:
OK, thanks for letting me know. Will the 500 missing eggs be restored at some point?
EA:
Yes, once this issue fixed, you will receive your missing eggs.

So there you have it Tappers…if you’re experiencing the basket glitch let EA know so they can work to restore your game.

Happy Zapping!

UPDATE FROM BUNNY: Seems people are also missing the “Thank You” Screen in their neighbor towns as they tap on through (Freak Glitch.Lol). Another “known” issue that EA has reports on. My suggestion is to contact them. I did not see a thread in the help desk forum as of yet, your are always welcome to start one. The same advisors that help you via chat and email are on the help forum too.

In Defense of the Easter Bunny

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite addicted Tappers doing today?  Busy zapping and tapping those bunnies?  Collecting all the eggs you can get your hands on?  Working your way through the main questline to earn those extra eggs?  Remember, you can find all the great tips and tricks we’ve posted about the event on our Easter Page.

So here we are day 3 of the Easter Event and from what we’ve been seeing in the comments most of you are loving this update!  Of course there are a few negative nellies in the bunch, when isn’t there?  But for the most part, so far, many of you are enjoying this update!

And I say…what’s not to love?  Lots of free prizes to earn, hilarious dialogue, characters we’ve ALL been asking for and FREE donuts!

I’m seriously loving this update and choose to remain positive about the twists and turns that are in store for us during the next 25 days!  In fact I’m enjoying this update so much it’s inspired me to do something I don’t normally do around here….and that’s give my opinion.

So sit back, relax and let me tell you why I choose to enjoy this update…

It Doesn’t Add Up….Or Does It? The Math of TSTO Easter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I see that many of you are now starting to unlock the Easter content and are so far loving the event!  What’s not to love?  Hunting wabbits and free stuff!  Oh and did I mention FREE donuts?  Not only are donuts in the questline (check here for the post) but many Tappers are reporting they’re STILL earning donuts from tapping neighbor’s buildings, as long as they’re maxed out on Friend Points (check here for more details on donuts in FP)!  Not a bad way to have an event start off, right?

So now that many of you are starting to unlock the content, and some of you are acquiring your first Easter Box, I see some of you starting to question the math of it all.  As I explained in my odds post with this event you’re guaranteed to unlock all of the items, as long as you’re diligent with your tapping.  And some of you are starting to say…’wait a min!  81 attempts to guarantee it x 500 Eggs = 40,500 Eggs/color!  That’s impossible to do!’

And you know what?  Those of you thinking like that…you’re right.  It is impossible to do in the way you’re thinking.  The problem is…you’re thinking about it all wrong.  You’re taking the literal conversion of exactly how many eggs you get and coming up WAY short.  However, as they say…there’s more than 1 way to skin a cat…er bunny?

Those of you taking the literal conversions into account you’re forgetting an IMPORTANT aspect of this update….games of chance.  Let’s break it all down and I’ll show you how you can earn enough to unlock everything….with out using donuts.  All you need is diligent tapping and patience.  You may not get something until the very last day, but keep your patience and don’t lose your cool!

Turbo Tappin’ Easter 2014

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the Easter update is upon us!  Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies…they’re EVERYWHERE!  And we’ve been seeing a TON of comments about “what happens next”, so now that the update is nearing 24hrs old, and for most of you Homer, Willie & Apu will be wrapping up their Whacking Day preparedness shortly, we figured it’s a good time to Turbo Tap Easter!

For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn.  This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when.  This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference.

Now on with Easter!  As I mentioned in the initial update post the main quest is kicked off by Homer and the anticipation of Whacking Day.  While the main quest is called Four-Day Weekend For Our Sins, there are some mini quests , entitled something different each time, that pop-up throughout as well.  We’ll cover those here as well.  So let’s get to Turbo Tappin’ shall we?

Easter Has Arrived in Springfield!! (Updated and Complete)

Photo Apr 15, 12 27 12 PM

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the speculation and splash screens gave everyone reason to think an Easter update was coming and….it looks like it has arrived!  Although not quite the date many of you were thinking it would be (or the date…which goes to show you that the “EA Reps” on live chat know about as much as everyone else does when it comes to updates.  ONLY the director of the game itself knows when the updates will release).

This is an APP STORE update…version 4.8…so check your App store to see if the update has hit for you yet (remember iOS usually gets it first.)

The update is currently live on iOS.
Update is now live on Android
Update is now live on Kindle

As always as we uncover more information we’ll update THIS post with it.  And for those who like to be surprised to the content we’ll keep all of it below the fold…so warning SPOILERS AHEAD!

Homer auto starts this update with some remarks about…Whacking Day

If you’re having trouble getting the update to start…remember the basic troubleshooting steps Bunny posted about here.

Update on FP’s: If you are NOT maxed out in your FP’s you will now earn 1 FP for EVERY handshake in your town.  So what that means is when someone visits you and you clear that handshake you’ll earn an additional FP.
Also, when visiting neighbors it’s the usual structured FP points
