App Update Available- Splash and Burn

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

App store update is out for the next update in TSTO.  This will not go live until tomorrow (7/27) at 11am ET but for now download the update so you’re ready when it’s set to go live.

This update shakes out to be another mini-event, called Splash and Burn.  As always with mini-events, we don’t release spoilers unless they’re given to us by EA.  So more details will follow when the event launches tomorrow.  For now here are some shots of what’s to come directly from the game…

That’s it for now.  Nothing to do but download the update and wait for it to launch at 11am ET tomorrow (Wednesday July 28th).  Oh and make sure you’ve gotten everything out of the shattered dreams box if you wanted something…that will disappear when this event starts up!

Dog Days Building Tasks

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Now that the Dog Days Event is over, it can be a bit overwhelming to take a look at the prize haul and figure out just what to do with everything.  With an event that ran 5 weeks (almost), it can be hard to remember what arrived with week 1 and want it did.  It can also be hard just remembering what the heck came with this event.

While I break down each item individually and include character tasks there, if there are any, it can be difficult to remember just who goes where.  So I’ve compiled one list of all the character tasks associated with a building.  Now you’ve got one place to go back and look to see which character animates which building from the Dog Days Event.

So let’s take a look…

The End is Near for Dog Days…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Dog Days Event Ends TOMORROW July 20th.

It’s time to for the dogs to disappear and for something new to arrive in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any Act questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.
