Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Tap Ball

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Tap Ball Event is winding down and we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the main questlines that popped up during Tap Ball Event (we’ll cover premium and side quests in another post…otherwise this would be the post that never ended!).  Especially since many of you have been requesting this over the last few days! So if you missed any of the dialogue during the 3 Acts here’s your chance to catch it all!

It all starts way back when the Woman’s World Cup was just getting started…not to be confused with America’s Cup….can you remember back that far?  So here we go with Homer, Lisa and the invention of a crazy new game…

Tap Ball 2015 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Tap Ball Event released a TON of new items into our Springfields.  Everything from stores and statues to stadiums and obstacle courses!  So let’s take a look at how these new and returning items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Tap Ball event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Last Call for Tap Ball

Update 2:45pm EDT: The Takedown update is in the files, which means it should be hitting the app stores soon.  Remember, anything right now is borrowed time…so proceed with caution.  At some point it will force you to update to continue.  If you don’t want to update immediately make sure your auto updates are turned off.  But again, it’s borrowed time.  And sometime within the next 24hrs the game will most likely force you to update & when that happens you’ll be locked out until you update.

Update 12pm EDT: The timers are up, but Tap Ball continues.  So continue playing/collecting while you can!  Right now I don’t see anything indicating an update is hitting soon, but that can very quickly change.  So keep playing while you can!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that Tap Ball is ending tomorrow!  Tap Ball will be leaving our games at a little bit of a different time than we’re used to…it’ll make it’s way out at 1600 GMT (12 Noon EDT).

Most likely it will require an App Store update to remove, so it is possible you’ll get a little bit of “borrowed” time to earn more prizes (and Amateur Bucks).  But remembered, if it happens it’s borrowed time..and the game could force you to update at any time.

So let’s take a look at everything that ends tomorrow and what you’ll need to grab if you want it before it’s gone from the store…

Tap Ball 101: The Amateur Shop (Acts 2 and 3)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tap Ball is sweeping the streets of Springfield and the players are bringing in the bucks!  Amateur Bucks that is!   So what can you do with all those Amateur Bucks you’re earning? Spend them at, what else, the Amateur Shop of course!

The Amateur Shop is basically the crafting option for this event.  Except instead of having to collect multiple items to craft 1 thing, you only need to collect Amateur Bucks (ico_june2015_amateurbucks_md).  So it’s like crafting and shopping in one.  If you have enough Amateur Bucks to buy something, you can.

So now let’s go over all of the options in the Amateur Shop for Acts 2 and 3 (you can review the options for Act 1 here) and break down all of the “goodies” you can pick up with your Bucks…
