So, let’s take a look…

Jebediah Springfield Statue Skin Glitch…That Isn’t a Glitch

There seems to be a ton of confusion with many players about the recent Act III prize award of the “Damaged Jebediah Statue.”  I understand your confusion…as EA, once again, in their infinite desire to make things clear and easy for the user (NOT!!!) have failed to mention that this is a SKIN… As in, you have to have the statue first, or the skin won’t work.

It has been so long since most of us long-time players got the statue, that it is easy to forget that many of you started playing the game well after August of 2013. Makes sense…

But, there is an answer that should make it clear that this glitch isn’t a glitch…

Bart Royale 101: Defensive Bonus Act 3

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new element added to our games for Bart Royale is a Defensive Bonus.  Simply explained, it’s an extra bonus of Prize Track currency awarded at any of the bases (playscape/junk/ruffian) when you place items (that award a Defensive Bonus) in the “zone” around the base.

So basically, it’s a simple way to earn even more prize track currency.

Let’s take a look at how items from Act 3 impact the Defensive Bonus….

Bart Royale – Act III Calendar

Let’s just get this out of the way… “This Event Is Too Long!”

There. I’ve said what needs to be said. EA? Are you listening?  TWO ACTS PLEASE…Three feels drawn out, and the prizes seem like afterthoughts, that you are just throwing out there to extend the event into three acts. Grinding…and more grinding ahead. It is EALPish… (EA Lazyass Programming).

On a plus side…I finished Act II with days to spare. As in…4 days early…which made the weekend nice, if Deb didn’t get the flu, and we didn’t have to attend a funeral (not Deb’s). But, I digress…

There is no magic to Act III. It is simply a matter of logging in every 4 hours…doing the assault/defend shuffle…and coming back 4 hours later to do it all over again.

But, Here are the Numbers You Will Need to Get It ALL in Act III…whether you want it or not…

Bart Royale Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Bart Royale/Homergeddon Event…Ends TOMORROW February 20th at 0800 GMT (3am ET).

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Cola Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Cola 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…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act.

Be ready for the Act 3 to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (3am ET) tomorrow morning  (February 20th)….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale ends this week, how have you fared with the prize track?
