Next Update in TSTO?! Mini-Event SPOILERS!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well in yet another surprising twist…EA has sent us a spoiler packet for the next MINI-EVENT in TSTO.  That…never happens.  But they’re REALLY excited about this one, and honestly after looking through the packet, I can see why!  This looks like it could be the mini-event of the year, for sure, and possibly the best mini-event since…well, ever.  We shall see.

Anyway, they literally sent us the spoiler packet about 30 minutes ago and then gave us the greenlight to share the spoilers with you guys. (of course it took me a little bit of time to write this up)  So, unfortunately, no time for a spoiler video (given that I’m at work, and Safi is traveling)…BUT I’m still able to do a spoiler post.

For those who just want a couple of basics, without getting all of the spoilers…here are those basics:

-This is a mini-event.  From what the packet says, it’ll start on November 17th at 9am ET.  (1400 UTC)  Note the 2 hour earlier start time.
-Because it’s a mini-event it’ll run for 2 weeks, and it ends December 1st.  (also at 9am ET, 1400 UTC)
-Standard mini-event.  1 prize track, 1 premium character combo (150 donuts for the combo)
-You’ll need to be at or above Level 15 for this to trigger.
-Characters needed are: Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, Grampa, Wiggum, Moe, Quimby, and new Premium character with the event.  (that’s just to earn currency.  I don’t have details on questline just yet)
-There will be a Black Friday special.  Similar to last year it’ll be a prize track where you need to purchase donuts (with real life cash) to unlock special NEW prizes.
-There will be a Gold Mystery Box, with returning items in it.  However, it looks like you can only get the tokens for it via the Black Friday Track.  This will be something we’ll have to look into once the files hit.
-At the moment, I don’t know if the other (traditional/returning content) Black Friday Mystery Boxes will be returning.
-There will be NEW LAND with this mini-event
-There will also be an item limit expansion (by 1,000) with this mini-event.  New total will be 15,000.
-And finally, there is a “twist” element to this event.  Where you’ll need to do something to complete something else.  So for those looking for something more to do then just tap…it’s coming with this mini-event.

Now, here’s your official warning….SPOILERS AHEAD!  If you don’t want to know, don’t click below…

Incoming Update: All This Jazz

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just letting you know there IS an update on the server (so look for an App Store download later today) for the next mini-event in TSTO.  This one is called All This Jazz and will run for two weeks.

Update: The update is available for download. There seems to be an issue with iOS however,  it seems to be crashing with the update.  Some folks have reported uninstall and reinstall helped,  others said restarting their device has helped. Personally, I’m on Android so I’m not of much help….

Starts tomorrow, September 23rd, and runs until Wednesday, October 7th.  Standard 2 week mini-event.

What does this mean for Halloween?  Well either Halloween is going to start as soon as this mini-event ends, on the 7th, or it’ll start a week later. (although a week later, the 14th, feels really late)  As I’ve been saying for a while now…it’s EA.  It’s anyone’s guess as to what they’re going to do these days.

All we can control is the present moment in the game, and the present moment says we’ll be getting an update tomorrow.  So look for All This Jazz to start off tomorrow morning at 11am ET.

-Alissa

P.S. If we get an app store update prior to tomorrow, I’ll update this post with that info and some screenshots from in-game.

Here’s a look at the incoming characters
