Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2016: Premium Characters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Our games have turned dark, the water is mucky and the trees have changed colors….it must be Halloween in Springfield!

 

All Three Acts of this Event contained a premium character/skin for purchase…someone to help battle monsters and earn more event currency.  And each of these premium characters came with their own questline to work our way through.

So let’s take a look at the questlines for Crazy Iguana Lady, Blinky Monster and Grave Digger Billy now…

Error Logging In to TSTO

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Many of you have been reporting about issues you have getting into your game.  It tells you that you’ve been logged out and then when you try to log back in it tells you there’s an error and you can’t get back into your game. (And Patric wrote about some issues over the weekend)

We’ve seen this before…just a few months ago.  And it impacted a certain segment of the TSTO Server.  EA is aware of this too…in fact last week they made a post on their TSTO Facebook Page to indicate what to do if you’re impacted:

tsto-lockout

Those links are:

https://signin.ea.com/p/web/resetPassword?execution=e1628976549s1

And

https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/?product=the-simpsons-tapped-out

Initially I didn’t think too much of it (which is why I didn’t post about their post over the weekend).  As it’s happened before, and usually once EA is aware of it it’s resolved quickly.

However…it’s now becoming more widespread.  I’m seeing loads more reports of the lock out happening.  And in fact it just happened to me about 30 minutes ago.  My game worked fine all day…and then all of a sudden I was locked out.

However, I was able to get back into my game, by following the reset password method.  So I do recommend trying that.

It is concerning that it’s becoming more widespread, and hopefully EA can resolve the issue soon for everyone impacted.

And I know the question on everyone’s mind is….are they going to extend Halloween?  At the moment, I don’t think it’s widespread enough to cause them to extend the event.  It’s very rare that we see them extend an event unless nearly every player is impacted.  So the best thing I can tell you to do is try resetting your password, or contacting EA to get back into your game as quickly as possible.

Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2016: Act 3

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Our games have turned dark, the water is mucky and the trees have changed colors….it must be Halloween in Springfield!

The Halloween Event Act 3 arrived this morning and with it arrived, not only various monsters invading our pocket-sized Springfields, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 3 runs until November 15th, and you’ll need Wiggum free to get things started with an 8hr task.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the third Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do get rid of those Monsters and help Lisa get into a good school (you know if she ever ages beyond 8)….

The Coolest Things (So Far) EA Ever Did In TSTO…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lately it seems, that with event on top of event, TSTO has become predictable.  Often times we can figure out what’s going to happen in the game before an event even hits.  Let’s face it it’s all become a bit monotonous.

An Event hits, there’s going to be some element of excitement during Act 1…Act 2 hits that excitement level dwindles a bit, since really Act 2 is a replay of act 1…and by the time Act 3 hits everyone is so bored and over the event that we just want it to be over already.  But it wasn’t always like this…

EA used to do some super cool things with events (and in some cases they still do).  These cool elements made TSTO stand out from other freemium games…and honestly I’m not sure why they stopped with some of them.

While I’m sure many of us have different opinions about what’s cool and what’s not…I think having played this game for nearly four years and blogging about it for just about three years gives me a unique perspective.  Heck I’ve been moderating your comments about what y’all like and dislike about this game for three years. 😉

So here’s my take on some of the coolest elements EA ever added to TSTO…

Trick or Treat: Update on it’s Way

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…it looks like SOMETHING BIG is coming!  An update just hit the files BUT it has not yet hit our tapping devices.  However, this is going to be HUGE.

Looks like Halloween is FINALLY on it’s way!  We say goodbye to Barbarians and Nerds and hello to Mutants and Monsters!

It looks like it’ll be an app store update so if it follows suit of previous updates, something will be hitting the app stores between 11:30-1:30pm EST, so be sure to check  your app stores for the update.

We’ll be back with more once the update hits!

Happy Tapping Friends!

TSTO Halloween 4

P.S. We know all about the spoiler sites.  We’re in the files ourselves right now pulling loads of images and data for when the update hits.  However, our policy is, and has always been, we don’t post spoilers unless EA posts them first (like they sometimes do on Facebook).  Otherwise, we wait until the update actually hits and as soon as it hits we roll out TONS of info, but only after we’ve confirmed it to be actually in the game itself.  It’s just the way we do things around here.  We promise as SOON as the update hits, you guys will have ALL of the info as fast as humanly possible, if not faster.  🙂
