TSTO Musings About The Real Moms of Springfield…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another TSTO Thursday, and this time we have an update in Springfield! As usual I have some thoughts, about the update and going forward, so let’s get to ‘em…

In-Game Update: Real Moms of Springfield (Starts TOMORROW, 5/15)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Matt Selman was right…it’s update day in TSTO!  An in-game update has hit our games, however, the gameplay is not currently live.  Which means, we’ll have to wait 1 more day for new stuff to do in TSTO.

This appears to be a pretty standard mini-event coming our way.  New characters, new skins, new buildings, new decorations, and new premium items to buy!

Again, this all launches TOMORROW, May 15th at 10am ET, 1400 UTC.  

(It ends on May 29th, so 2 weeks from start time)

A couple of notes…it looks like with this update they tried to fix the Amazon issue, and I’m seeing reports of players saying it is finally fixed!  Great news!  (now if they can just fix the S10 issues, but I digress…)

Another note, those experiencing lockout issues on the S10, I believe this is only happening to folks outside the US and Canada.  Mostly folks in Europe (particularly UK), and I think I’ve seen 1 report in Australia.  Not sure if this is related to a Samsung software issue in those areas or not, since it seems to have happened after you did a software update on the S10 from Samsung.

I think, based on this content, this was supposed to launch last week (given that Mother’s Day just passed), but it appears that between the server issues and trying to (finally) fix the Amazon issue it was held up.  Hopefully, now that those issues are addressed, we’re back on the road the regular updates again!

And finally, here’s a sneak peek at the characters/skins/items arriving…

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW…I’m making an exception to my regular “no spoiler” rule because it’s been FOREVER since we had an update.  So if you don’t want to know, don’t click below…

TSTO Musings About EA’s “Ghosting”…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are again.  Yet another Thursday with no new update in TSTO released the previous two days.  At this point, while I don’t think this is the case, it’s hard not to feel like EA’s ghosting us.  As usual, I have some thoughts on things, so let’s get to ’em…

Musings About the Current State of TSTO…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are again.  Yet another Thursday with no new update in TSTO released the previous two days.

It’s been 50 days since the last new content update in TSTO, Classless Reunion (March 13th), and 22 days since the last in-game update…or whatever the hell that thing was…Marge at the Bat (April 10th), and I have some thoughts.  So let’s get to them…

Frustrated With EA? Here’s Where to Go To Contact Them…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I’m seeing in the comments that a bunch of you are frustrated with the lack of communication from EA right now, so I wanted to provide you with some links where you can go to express that frustration to EA directly…

🤷‍♀️

I’ve always wanted to title a post with just an emoji…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s Thursday and still nothing new from EA.  Good times in TSTO guys, good times.

Yes, you’re bored.  I’m bored too.  It’s weird not having new content to write about.

And I already know, because of your comments, some of you are freaking out over the lack of updates…

Marge At the Bat Full Dialogue Walkthrough

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re talkin’ softball…
From Maine to San Diego.
Talkin’ softball…
Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey’s grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.
We’re talkin’ Homer… Ozzie and the Straw.

Baseball!  Is there anything more glorious than the game of baseball?  (Don’t answer that if you’re going to say no…)

The Marge at the Bat update combines two fun baseball episodes of The Simpsons…”Homer at the Bat” and “Money Bart”.  I feel like it’s no coincidence that those are two episodes we’ve been talking about around here lately.  (For those who’ve missed it, Safi’s been talking a lot about Baseball on his Monday Morning Math Posts)

But, leave it to EA though to mess up an update about Baseball, with zero new content.  Kind of like MLB is messing up the game itself these days with all these stupid new “rules”…but I digress. (hey look, I can be Cranky too 😂)

Anywho, the one thing Marge at the Bat has, that EA didn’t mess up, is a fun questline.  The questline is pretty amusing for those that follow baseball, so let’s get to it…

Marge At the Bat is Live In-Game

Update: It appears we have our first bug of the new content.  Part 1 of the questline is supposed to give you Aristotle (full character) if you don’t already have him, however, it’s not.  And you need Aristotle to complete part 1 of the questline (can’t send Burns without him as it’s a joint task). So quite a few players are stuck right away on part 1.
No workaround at the moment, have to wait for it to be patched.  You can try to contact EA and see if Customer Support can add him to your inventory, otherwise, we just have to be patient.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So it’s 10am here on the East Coast of the US and that means Marge at the Bat is now live in our games.

As I mentioned a few times, it appears there is no new content with this one.  It’s an 8 part questline (that will take approx 32hrs to complete) and a bunch of returning content (some for Free, some for donuts).

You’ll have two weeks to complete the questline and purchase items you’re eyeing, as this content is slated to leave our games on April 24th.

Here’s a look at what’s inside…

Details Before Marge at the Bat Update Goes Live

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Please note, at the time of this post going live the content is NOT live in the game.  It will not go live until 10a ET (1400 UTC) on April 10th)

So as I wrote about yesterday, an update hit the files titled “Marge at the Bat”.  Upon first glance, this looked like a pretty standard mini-event.  Two weeks of content, and not much else.  However, as I’ve dug deeper into this I’m not quite sure what to make of it….

Update ON THE SERVER!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Red alert!  RED ALERT!  This is not a drill.  I repeat this is not a drill.  We have an update on our hands!  All praise TSTO not being dead! 🙌🙌

At first glance, I can tell you this appears to be (another) 2-week mini-event (which means this is an in-game update, so nothing to update in the app store.  It should download automatically for you).  It’s slated to start TOMORROW, April 10th, at 10am ET (1400 UTC).  Again, it’s supposed to start tomorrow.  So it’ll download today but nothing will trigger until tomorrow morning.

At second glance I can tell you…holy mother-forking shirtballs this update is called…MARGE AT THE BAT!

For those who have read this site for awhile, watched Addicts Live, or just know me at all, you know Homer at the Bat is my FAVORITE episode.  I’m excited to see what’s in store here….

Update: Ok guys a heads up…I’m not 100% sure of this or not..but the Yearbook box MAY be leaving the store.  So be prepared if it does.

Also, at first glance, this looks like nothing. I’m hoping EA only released a small portion of the files today.  Because right now this is nothing.  No new characters, decorations, buildings, or costumes.  Just a bunch of stuff coming back.  So color me confused….

Update #2: What I see right now is an 8 part questline, ZERO new content.  Loads of returning content.  And the chance for players to get characters and skins for free if they missed them during Tap Ball or Springfield Jobs (Aristotle only). Other than that I’m not seeing much guys…so I’m very perplexed at the move here.
