Rolling out this evening is an App Store update for Thanksgiving 2019. The update is going live in App Stores (confirmation for Google and Amazon, Pat said it’s not showing up in iOS just yet iOS as well), but it is NOT live in-game yet.
I’m in the process of pulling files and images on this, but my hunch is it’ll go live tomorrow morning around 10am.
It’s important to note that downloading this update will NOT remove THOH content from your game. Those items are still set via timer. So you’ll have until tomorrow to make purchases, even if you’ve downloaded the update.
Here are a few images of what’s to come with the update…
If you saw the post from a little earlier you’d know that it’s update date in our Pocket-Sized Springfields!
If you’re having trouble getting the event to start, remember you must FIRST download the update from the App Store. Although this is a mini-event, you have to download the Game of Games “takedown” update first to see the event. (basically, your splashscreen should be back to Homer Running from Skyfinger). If you’ve downloaded the update and you’re still having trouble seeing it, make sure you’re at least at Level 20 (as that’s the requirement), then try hard closing and restarting TSTO.
The Flanders have invaded Springfield…hopefully to liven this up a bit! As the Flanders Family Reunion officially kicks off today!
Things kick off in Springfield with some dialogue between the Flanders’ family (Ned/Nedward/Capri) followed by a 6s task for Ned. Once you complete this you’ll unlock the very first prize of the mini-event! (Reunion Banner) This will be followed by the event launch. For the first part, you’ll need to complete a 4hr task for Flanders and a task to collect the event currency…you know typical mini-event stuff…
This mini-event ends on July 31st (10am ET, 1400 UTC…at least that’s what the files say)
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.
