TSTO Anonymous – This is what happens when I’m topicless

Happy Good Friday everyone!

So with the superhero event concluded and EA bringing us some Easter goodness, I wondered if it was time to have another meeting of TSTO Anonymous.  Are all our members bored now?  Fretting over premium options that returned?  Ready for the next event/level/tie-in?  I figured there was no place like a digital TSTO Anon meeting to just come together and discuss whatever.  Fair warning that this might just be another veiled attempt by yours truly to ramble.  Only way to find out is to just grab a cup of coffee and get started.

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Issue 4 Is Finally Here!

Update 3/24 10:30 am: A lot of questions about what happens to the statue after you’ve defeated it.  It does remain in your Springfield..and you’ve got some options with it.  I’ve updated the post below with more details (right by the images for each level)….

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Well it’s finally that time…Issue 4 is live!

The update should have downloaded for you yesterday afternoon..if it did this should start right up for you.  However, if you didn’t download the latest update (in game nothing in the store) the files will have to download for you before Issue 4 can start up.

2015-03-11 14.08.06

So now that Issue 4 is here let’s sort through the speculation and get to what’s in this Issue!

Fallout Boy will get things started (Should auto-start) and require you to build the Radioactive Man Statue.  It’ll cost you $1,000 and takes 4hrs to build…

Back with more details in a bit More details below the fold

Final Hours of Superheros Issues 1-3

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Just another reminder that there’s only a few hours left in the first 3 issues of the Superhero Event!  So collect those last minute Freeze Rays, Pie Bombs or Carbon Rods & unlock what you can before time runs out!


When does time run out?  0800 GMT (4am EDT) Tuesday 3/24…so in just under 8hrs from now.

What happens when time runs out? This will be completely different than then start of Issues 2 and 3….previous issues will not carry over.  So this means that once issue 4 starts, issues 1-3 and their prizes will be closed off.  So be sure to earn those final Freeze Rays (or Carbon Rods/Pie Bombs) before time runs out!

Should you save Criminals/Felons?  From what we can tell….EVERYTHING will disappear once Issue 4 starts.  However, if you have nothing to lose by saving them…save them.

Will Crafting End?  Yes.  Crafting will end once Issue 4 starts…so collect what you’d like before time runs out!

What items will leave the store?  Once Issue 4 starts the Tar Pits and the Fruit Bat Signal will leave the store.  So if you’re thinking about picking up either of those do so before Issue 4 starts.

What happens with Issue 4?  We’ll have to wait and see….

What do you think Issue 4 will bring?  Are you ready for Issues 1-3 to be over?  Have you collected all the prizes?  Which items have you picked up?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!


Pi Day Pie Winner!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last Saturday was Ultimate Pi Day and here at Addicts we love every excuse for Pie!  So we thought it would be fun to have a little Pi Day contest where the winner wins…you guessed it…PIE!

So many of you entered and shared with us your favorite Pie…it made me hungry just reading the comments!  But we could only have 1 Ultimate Pi Day winner.  So let’s see who the Randomizer chose….

Where Did THAT Come From – The Collider

Hey there Superfriends!

I gotta say that I am loving the heck out of this Super Event. Vigilantes, Superheroes, Supervillains, bad guys to tap Batman-style, Spiderpig… so much fun. Of course, with lots of new items comes my task to let you know just WHERE all the stuff comes from. For this super where did THAT come from, we’ll take a look at the The Collider.

Where Did THAT Come From – Bartman

Howdy fellow Super Friends! How y’all doing?

So, I’m sure by now you’ve seen Bartman available in your characters menu and debated whether or not you needed him in your town. Of course, some may not have pulled the donut trigger just yet and others were like me and virtually shelled out the donuts faster than a speeding bullet. Whether or not the Black Bart has entered your vigilante collection, I think it’s about time we looked at the origins for the caped crusader of Springfield.
