From the Mouths of Addicts: The State of the Game

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  It’s been quite a while since we last had a From the Mouths of Addicts Post, but there’s no time like the present right?

This email came in from Blue Drogo about his thoughts on the current state of TSTO, from a long time Tapper perspective.  I read his email and just thought it was well thought out and deserved to be spotlighted on the site.  

So without further ado here’s Blue Drogo -Alissa 

Hi fellow tappers,

I have been playing this game for 8 years now and I wanted to share my thoughts as an experienced player and how I think EA has been letting users down.

Dear EA: In 2019 I Would Really Like TSTO to Have…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s no secret we’re in a little bit of a lull in TSTO right now. The Christmas Event has ended and nothing new hit our games to replace it.  The break many of you have been asking for has arrived!  Enjoy it, because it’s likely ending pretty soon.

Contrary to what some of you may think, no this isn’t the end of TSTO.  It’s just a little lull.  They happen sometimes.  Just because the game has a little break doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world as our favorite yellow family knows it.  Sometimes a break is just a break.  And for those of you who like breaks and want more of them, this freak out is why EA doesn’t do breaks often. 

So, while we’re waiting for something new to hit our pocket-sized towns (my guess is we’ll see something Wednesday) I thought now would be a great time to talk about what we’d like to see in TSTO during 2019.  A little Dear EA letter…

So in the comments below share what features, characters, events, buildings, decorations, etc. you’d like to see hit our pocket-sized towns during 2019 events.  What are you missing?  What would you love to have?

Here’s mine:

Dear EA,
In 2019 I Would Really Like (actually I would REALLY LOVE) TSTO to have a feature in Town Hall that makes finding characters easier.  Whether it’s a search box, where you can type in the characters name to find them, or just the ability to search by letter, like hit the S and all of the characters that start with S appear.  This would make finding characters much easier than it currently is.  With so many characters in Springfield,it can take some time to find that one character you’re looking for in the Town Hall List.  A better search feature would be awesome! 

So now it’s your turn, share your “Dear EA” letter in the comments below!  I can’t wait to see your ideas for 2019!

From the Mouths of Addicts: More Event Ideas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  We’ve got a post from longtime Addict, Happy Tapper! 

Happy Tapper used the downtime with the latest mini-event to focus on what we could see for the next major event.  And even give EA an idea or two about what to put out in the future.  

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Happy Tapper… -Alissa 

Hello, fellow tappers!

You may remember me from such posts as “Future TSTO Events” and “The Main Event Contest” or the annoying optimistic guy in the comments.

If I have got EAs attention and haven’t got it for much longer, I would like to quickly say …

I would love to see more interaction in the game, some more ways to make the game live up to its “strategy” title: more neighbour interaction in events, easter eggs to earn a donut or two, little clues/riddles to get to a prize, a Choose your Own Adventure type update where there are multiple routes to the dialogue.

I would just like to see some more experimenting with making events more than just popping into my town every 4 hours, tappa tappa tappa and then leaving.

The Simpsons is still full of content, from the classic to the modern, so in this post I wanted to break down some ideas that I’ve enjoyed designing, including possible content, a questline idea and maybe a way for it to break the 3 act formula. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading

Hey EA… it’s been a while but WE still want things!

Hey there Addictereenos! So I’m texting with Alissa the other day and she’s all “hey Wook… you think you’d have time to do a What the Addicts Want post?” and I’m all “Sure thing boss.” I think if I’d known (or remembered from the last time) what I was getting in to, you might not be reading these words right now. I dredge through the site looking for the last post to use as an example and realize it’s been two years minus a week since we did one. TWO YEARS!!! The horror!

Why would the Wookiee be so remiss in compiling what people wanted? Well the answer became quite clear to me as I did just that. From January 2015 to now, wading through comments and writing down what people asked for, there’s words to describe my efforts that aren’t PG enough for here. Then I remind myself how much I love this community and just get through it. Jebus knows I’ve gone through tougher things than compiling a list. Long story short… truly, all of you really have some great ideas as evidenced by the last list and this one. If you’re interested in what I highlighted this time… click more.

What a Wookiee Wants: Valentine’s Day 2016

Love is in the air they say… or is it smog? I always get those two mixed up. Is there a love alert today? Do we have to keep the kids indoors? Is Cupid polluting the atmosphere? Even in the middle of a mini-event, I find myself wondering what is coming down the pike in our beloved game. Even after 2 years and 4 months of content, there’s still so much that could be added. Every once in a while, I put on my thinking cap and consider some options. Here’s what a Wookiee wants for VD.  (Not VD lol)

HEY EA!!! Here’s some more of what the Addicts Want

Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh! Boooooooooooooooo! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr… EA stole my beautiful snow and made future so bright I gotta wear shades! Boo hoo!

Oh hey there Addictereenos… so I’m still lamenting the thaw in my town.  I really love snow-time in TSTO.  Of course that made me remember reader ideas about a weather button in our towns to bring back snow which got me remembering more of the great ideas you guys and dolls have.  Every so often, I try to highlight these ideas into one big post and here it is.

What a Wookiee Wants: Some TSTO Puppy Love

And they called it puppy love
Oh, I guess they’ll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so

Hey hey hey!  You know my friends, it’s been too long since I did one of these What a Wookiee Wants posts about future stuff and with the TSTO Holiday Event coming to a close, I thought it was high time.  In the past, the snow thaws and the next event brings us Cupid and lots of stupid pink to TSTO.  That’s right fellow Addicts, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day.

What the Addicts Want (besides land and the monorail)

What’s up Addicts?

So a year has come and gone on this site and I thought the perfect way to start off a new year was with another listing of things YOU want in the game.  The last time we did one of these lists was back in January and February.  Since then, we’ve collected quite a few from those posts, our Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA and in assorted comments I saved. If I forgot anyone, I apologize and I admit to editing some items for readability or conciseness.  There really are some great ideas below.

Dear EA… A Valentine’s wish list from the TSTO Addicts

Hey hey hey! How’s everyone doing? So it’s Valentine’s Day and I hope it’s a great one for all of you Addicts. In the spirit of love and giving, I figured it might be time to post up some more requesterinos from all of you.

On 25 Jan 14 we threw up quite a list but apparently, you creative folks had even more ideas. In fact, 57 comments which made me smile big. Over at the Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA, there were 15 more. Wowza, can you say “EA should just make us their brain trust?”
