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.

 

 

What’s Going On…

Well guys, I can sum up the lack of information about a new update with 1 emoji…

🤷‍♀️

Nothing is in the files, nothing has been sent from EA, so your guess right now is as good as mine.

Cue the panic…

This isn’t the first time we’ve had a long gap between updates, but it’s the first time in a long time.  (curious about the update releases?  Check out this post for a complete list of every TSTO update and its release date)

What does it all mean? 🤷‍♀️Could mean something, could mean absolutely nothing.  At this point, no one knows what anything means.

So for now, panic 😲…or don’t.  Relax…or go crazy 🤯.  Feel free to speculate 👀 in the comments…or feel free to rebuke the outrageous speculations.  Your call.

I’ll be back later with some more detail posts you guys have been asking for, or 🤞 info about a new update.  We shall see what the rest of today brings.  ✌

As a side note, if they’re going to end the game they could at least have the decency to add the Giant Toilet I’ve been waiting 6 years for… 😂😂😂

Updated Thought: Anyone else think EA is just sitting back and laughing at everyone freaking out over what they’re doing?  They’re probably at their desks just laughing away at us…

Another Updated Thought: There’s also this to think about from Matt Selman…

App Store Update: New Year 2019

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So an app store update hit our stores a little while ago (if you don’t see it try searching for Tapped Out in your App Store).  At the moment this update just removes the snow from Springfield and returns our games back to pre-Christmas update.  (holy smokes, it’s so green!)

There is a Mini Event Tied to this update.  However that mini event will NOT START UNTIL TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY JAN 9th, AT 10AM ET (1500 GMT).  So PLEASE don’t ask me where it is.  It will not start until tomorrow at 10am ET (1500GMT). 

So I can tell you this update will bring two requested characters to Springfield (one old and one young…), a bunch of buildings (including one, that will cost a lot of donuts, that will solve some land token problems), and a few decorations.  Also, with this update, you’ll see a TON of returning Stonecutters stuff.  So if you’ve been in the market for it, it’s back just for you!

And for those of you curious about the new characters…turn to your character collections to find them.  Still can’t find them, here they are:

An that’s it my friends, nothing to do but sit back and wait until tomorrow morning, 10am ET (1500 GMT) for the new content to hit!  Until then…enjoy your night!

Thoughts on the new content?  Excited for something to hit Springfield?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

 

Moe’s Ark Removal Update Available

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Officially back from my maternity leave from the site…a few hours early, but that’s ok.  Hopefully y’all didn’t give Patric too hard of a time.  I know he did a great job filling in for me, and I know it wasn’t easy.  Especially since I’m crazy OCD about how things are done around here lol.

Anyway…popping in a few hours early to let you know the Moe’s Ark Removal update has hit the stores. Here’s a look at the update description…

Personally, I’m hoping that census comment means that Townhall will finally be easy to search feature…

Downloading this will prep your game for a mini update that’s slated to hit tomorrow. You can download it now (it won’t impact the Moe’s Ark prize track or update content) or you can wait until tomorrow to download it.  However, you will need to download it to start the next update…

And remember, when the timer runs down on Moe’s Ark the event will be over.  You won’t be able to earn the prizes you missed out on for free.  So use all the time you have left if you’re still behind on the prize track.

Anywho, I’ll be back tomorrow once the mini event hits (as far as content, let’s just say it’ll be something Superand in my opinion something super bad and overplayed…) so for now enjoy your night and the calm before the storm….

 

From the Mouths of Addicts: More Event Ideas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  We’ve got a post from longtime Addict, Happy Tapper! 

Happy Tapper used the downtime with the latest mini-event to focus on what we could see for the next major event.  And even give EA an idea or two about what to put out in the future.  

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Happy Tapper… -Alissa 

Hello, fellow tappers!

You may remember me from such posts as “Future TSTO Events” and “The Main Event Contest” or the annoying optimistic guy in the comments.

If I have got EAs attention and haven’t got it for much longer, I would like to quickly say …

I would love to see more interaction in the game, some more ways to make the game live up to its “strategy” title: more neighbour interaction in events, easter eggs to earn a donut or two, little clues/riddles to get to a prize, a Choose your Own Adventure type update where there are multiple routes to the dialogue.

I would just like to see some more experimenting with making events more than just popping into my town every 4 hours, tappa tappa tappa and then leaving.

The Simpsons is still full of content, from the classic to the modern, so in this post I wanted to break down some ideas that I’ve enjoyed designing, including possible content, a questline idea and maybe a way for it to break the 3 act formula. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading
