Moe’s Ark Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s that time in Springfield…time for a new Act! It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Moe’s Ark Act 2…so have at it, assuming you can get into the game of course!

Yes, odds are the servers will likely be down.  May I suggest waiting an hour or so before trying?  Unless you like seeing the Bart Screen…and spinning donut.  mmmm spinning donuts

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 4hr task with Larry Kidkill.  Hopefully you saved up those Daily Challenges to get a good jump start!

Act 2 runs until August 29th (when Act 3 will start)

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Moe’s Ark Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Moe’s Ark Event…Ends TOMORROW August 15th at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Act 1 Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning animal feed 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…)

Upgrades will STILL be available in the next Act.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Tips for Starting Act 2 right here.

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (August 15th)….

Friday Filler- Jumping the Shark with Zooaligical Profiling

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Once again, I am writing this early, as I will actually be in Alaska the day you are reading this…Friday…which may be Saturday for some…but because of the header, is mostly Friday…except when it isn’t, like today.

That last paragraph makes about as much sense as this event.  Perhaps EA is going to figure out a way to pull it together somehow with the dialogue. But, it is going to take a rope the size of a galaxy, and a giant Holy Lion to pull together.

And, frankly, I think this a case of “jumping the shark” in TSTO that is both troubling and was likely born out of the same kind of staff meeting that the original “Jump the Shark,” episode came from.

Not familiar with the term? Read on…

Moe’s Ark Act I Prize Guide – Big Cat Country

Well…it’s about time we all got something that works with the HUGE Lion Sign we got a few prizes back!

This one is cool…and has it’s own rather convoluted Upgrade System that will allow you to make it even BIGGER than the name implies!

Big Cat Country is one of the BEST prizes in Act One. It has a very cool animation, with running water, and really adds some “Zazzz” to your Zoo!

Let’s take a look…

Zoo Gift Shop Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another event in Springfield.  As the Springfield Zoo event is in full effect in Springfield.  And it wouldn’t be an event without a Mystery Box, now would it?  Of course EA’s go a box for this occasion!  They have a box for everything! This time around it’s full of zoo-ish items (and some not) of the past…

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those zoo-ish inspired premium character/building/decorations.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…

Moe’s Ark 101: Attraction Bonus and Upgrading Emu Experience & Big Cat Country

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So usually when events first start I jump out with SIB posts first because that tends to be the number 1 thing requested (after the calendar).  However, with this event seems like a lot of you are getting confused with the Bonus Area/Upgrading the Emu Experience so I figured let’s start with an explanation on that.

If you’re looking for information about how to increase your Amusement/Bonus Area percentage and/or information about Upgrading the Emu Experience (or Big Cat Country) and/or where the heck the animals go when you unlock them via upgrade this is the post for you.  So please, read this post in its entirety.  If you’re still confused, read it again.  And then…if you’re still lost ask your question in the comments below.

Let’s get started….

Moe’s Ark Is Live! Act 1 Details and Rundown (Updated and Complete)

Yup the servers may be down for some of you.  This shouldn’t be a surprise at this point.  Since moving the update time to 10am ET they’ve crashed nearly every time a new act hits…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s update Wednesday!  Woohoo!  Who’s excited for all new content in TSTO?  After all that downtime (seriously was a SLOW July) everyone should be excited for something…anything to hit our games!

Well…that something has arrived!  As Moe’s Ark is now officially live in our Pocket-Sized towns! Yes, that’s right my friends log into your Springfield’s to see all the zoo raising fun.  Or just to see what items are available for you to throw donuts at…

Anywho, remember this was an app store update that hit our games YESTERDAY.  So if you didn’t download the update check your app store for it now…we’ll wait.  (if you don’t see it listed in your update section try searching the store for Tapped Out)

Waiting…..

Everyone got it?  Good. Great. Grand.  Let’s get started…

As I’ve mentioned several times over the last few days, this update kicks off with a task for THREE of the Simpsons to complete.  So be sure you have at least 3 free. And more details are below the fold…

Note: As always, I’ll be updating this post frequently while I play through the event myself.  So keep checking back today for all of the details on Act 1…

Moe’s Ark Update in App Store, but NOT Live in Games

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yes, the Moe’s Ark update has hit our app stores.  Yes, it’s a day earlier than expected.  And no, nothing is wrong with your game…it’s not supposed to trigger yet.

If you’ve downloaded the update from the app store you’ll see that the splash screen and icon have changed, however, nothing else has.  This is because the update is NOT set to trigger until TOMORROW, August 1st, at 10am ET.

Which means…you won’t see anything new in your game until TOMORROW at 10am ET.  So don’t panic!

So basically right now Springfield is EXACTLY the same as it was an hour ago.  Nothing has changed except the Splash Screen and Icon.

Once it’s live tomorrow we’ll be back with all of the Act 1 details…until then it’s business as usual for the residents of our Pocket-Sized Springfields….
