Should You Buy the Witch?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So something EA’s been slowly rolling out over the last year or so is this new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles in addition to bonus donuts.

This time around we’re being offered the Witch,  a premium character, for a truckload of 300 Donuts ($19.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of the Witch, her tasks and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Halloween 2018 Act 3 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Halloween!  Let’s hope there are only treats in store for us today and no tricks from EA when it comes to the servers/glitches/general TSTO Chaos.

It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Halloween Act 3…so have at it, assuming you can get into the game of course!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Questline should start right up for you and you’ll have to do a 12hr task with Springfielders

Act 3 runs until November 14th (when the event ends)

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Halloween Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Halloween Event…Ends TOMORROW October 31st at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Act 2 Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning fangs if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act. And Pickaxes will Carry Over (Relics do not)

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 2 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Ending Act 1 Tips

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 31st)….
