Where Did THAT Come From: Sir Loves-a-Lot

The Valentine’s day update was quickly followed by the chaos of Superheros, so we didn’t have a chance to cover everything before Superheroes hit.  Here’s an Addicts post we wrote during Valentine’s Day, but are just now getting the chance to share it with you 🙂

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

The Survey Says: Wheel of Mayhem

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well our Springfield’s have been free of Valentines and Wheels for about a week now, isn’t it nicer with out all that pink around?  As the Event was coming to a close in our games I asked you guys to participate in one final Wheel of Friendship poll so we could get some final tallies on just how accurate the percentages were.  Now let’s all practice our best Richard Dawson impression because…The Survey Says….

Curiosity Poll: Wheel of Friendship

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Still no update to speak of…but like I said yesterday…it’s ok!  We’ve got TONS of great posts to keep your Tapping minds and fingers fresh!  I’ve got another little poll I want to conduct this morning inspired straight from the comments again.  (and yes this time it’s an actual poll…just for you Freak!)

In reading your comments over the course of the Valentine’s Day Event it’s been interesting to see the different items that some of you have been having difficulty getting.  That elusive final item to clear the wheel if you will.  For me it was the Train. I only landed on it ONCE. Yes, that’s right 1 time in ALL of my spins (about 50+ I lost count).  However, Bunny has like 10 trains.

Now it makes sense…in my mind anyway…that the train has been the hardest for me to get because the odds of landing on it are the worst (5%).  BUT for some of you the hardest items to land on have been the fountain or the bird bath, and you have multiple Trains.  Which is interesting (to me anyway) because the odds on the fountain and bird bath were at 10%.

So what I want to know is just how accurate (to an extent) those odds were.  (I know to truly calculate the accuracy of those odds I’d need to know how many of each item you earned and how many spins etc.  But this is more a basic accuracy test)  I want to know which items you had the hardest time hitting AND which items you seemed to land on the most often.  NOTE: I’ve left the fence off of the landed on the most.  At 15% odds I think it’s safe to say we all have multiple fences in our towns!

First up the item you have the fewest of:

Now let’s see what you have the most of:

Now one more thing….I want to know if you’ve cleared the wheel yet.  Last time we ran this poll over a week ago 40% of you say yes and 60% said no (with 38% of you saying you only had 1 item left).  So I want to know if those results have improved.  This time it’s just a simple yes or no:

Curious to see your results!

Sound off in the comments below about your hardest item to get, what item you have so many of (beyond the fence) and if you’ve cleared the wheel and when (if this little update delay has helped you earn that Tunnel of Love).  I love hearing your wheel clearing stories!

Hitchhikers Guide to the End of V-Day

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…the end is near!  Tomorrow (Feb 25th) the Valentine’s Day Event will officially end …it’s about time!  I think the love was over 10 days ago.  And once the event is over the option to buy many of the V-Day items will disappear with it.  Poof just like that! They’ll disappear into the night never to be able to be purchased again…unless of course EA decides to bring them back next year for Valentine’s Day.

So beyond the items what else do you need to know for the end of the Valentine’s Day Event?  Let’s take a look at some of the steps you should know to finish out the event and get ready for some kind of update.  Continue reading

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Did y’all have a nice weekend?  Do anything exciting?  Buy anything new?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No, not a day of rest…at least not in MY house!  Nope nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

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 Sunday Night Open Thread.  The Olympics have come to a close today.  Did your country do as expected?  Are you excited for the 2016 Summer games in Brazil?  The Valentine’s Day Event in TSTO is scheduled to end on Tuesday (the 25th), did you collect all of the items you wanted from the wheel?  Did you earn the Tunnel of Love?  Do YOU think there will be a new Level Update this week?  What characters would you like to see accompany Level 39?  And during last week’s Open Thread frequent Addicted Tapper around the comments Leifye shared this awesome Simpsons Writer’s Reunion Video with us:


Check it out if you’re looking for something awesome to watch tonight while waiting for new episodes of The Simpsons to come back!

So chat about the Olympics, TSTO, the Writers Reunion or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all!  You know we  LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Oh Those Origin Servers Are Down Again….Open Thread

serverdowngraphic-800x450“They’re up
They’re down,
They’re down and up and down
down, down, down
up, up, up,
The EA Distraction Show!”
(Thanks CGuy for the awesome modification to my server’s down jingle!)

Update: 8:15pm EST…I’m finally able to get back into TSTO on my A game on my GS4 phone, but i’m still locked out on my B game on my Galaxy Tablet.  So some of you may be seeing service restored and others might still be experiencing downed servers.  Just keep being patient…they’ll be coming back up soon 🙂

Oh and about the heart grinder..no sight of it in the game at this point.  Someone at EA might have jumped the gun on Facebook, since the post has since been removed.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you seeing this message when you try to login to TSTO:
2014-01-29 21.25.47
Or this one?
qof99rn

Yea?  Me too.  But...DO NOT PANIC!  While it sucks, yes (especially with talk of the heart grinder returning again), this is something that we’re seeing many many MANY Tappers experiencing right now.

So be patient…relax…and keep trying.  Eventually they’ll come back up and we

can all get to Tap Tap Tappin again!

In the mean time…do you need some ideas of what to do?  Check out this post for the do’s and don’t’s of the Servers being down.

You can also add your Caption to our latest Caption This! OR talk amogst yourselves as we make this post a special Tuesday Open Thread!  So chat it up with each other about anything and everything TSTO related or not as we ALL wait for the servers to come back up 🙂

Can’t wait to chat with my favorite Addicts!

Note about the Heart Grinder Rumors….while we can’t verify this in the game (because we’re locked out too with the servers)…I’m currently checking through the files to see if I see anything that would indicated the heart grinder appearing in the game.  However, we can’t be certain until the servers let us back in, but I’ll let you know what I find 🙂

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Did y’all enjoy your weekend?  Do anything fun?  Get slammed with more snow?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No, not a day for hangover recovering…unless you’ve been hitting the Bunny “water” with Seapeach, Freak, Bunny and I.  It’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  It’s the Sunday after Valentine’s Day, did anyone do anything fun for the weekend?  Have you been watching the Olympics?  How is YOUR home country doing?  Have you been redesigning your Springfield with all of the new Valentine’s Decorations?  Have you purchased Honest Abe?  MLB Pitchers and Catchers have reported already.  Your thoughts on the upcoming MLB season?  Oh and tonight is the NBA All-Star game…will you be watching?  

So chat about the Olympics, the All-Star game, MLB, TSTO, Valentine’s Day or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all!  You know we  LOVE hearing from you!

Something’s Coming: A Peek Inside the Files

Reminder…voting in the Valentine’s Day Poem Contest ends tonight at 11:59pm EST.  So be sure to vote for your favorite

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry I’m a little late today with getting this…random…info out to you.  We’ve been slammed with, yet another, massive  snow storm here in the North East and I’ve spent much of the day shoveling out!

I know most of the other TSTO sites out there reported on this earlier that something was coming.  What exactly that something is…no one seems to know.  As you know the policy here at Addicts is not to report on anything unless we can verify it for ourselves.  So, now that I can finally see my driveway again I’ve taken another look at the files.

As some of you may have seen when you logged on to TSTO today a little mini update hit.  No…nothing changed, well from the game play itself for today.  But this little update most likely updated the files with information about that something that’s supposed to be coming.  So let’s see what we’ve uncovered shall we?

Oh and for those curious….here’s what my driveway looked like with all that snow!
