Dusting off an oldie but a goodie here at Addicts, the What We Want in TSTO column! Of course, this was originated by the one, the only, Wookiee…and entitled What A Wookiee Wants (WAWW). But with Wook’s schedule being what it is, I thought it was finally time to get a female Addict’s perspective on this. So I’m bringing you What The Addicts Want…
So, tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day! Leprechauns, Green Beer, hijinx and more! Tomorrow, assuming EA stays on its regular schedule, we’re also expecting a mini-event update to hit our pocket-sized towns. So what better topic for my first What The Addicts Want post than St. Patrick’s Day! So let’s take a look!
“I, Joseph Fitzgerald O’Malley Fitzpatrick O’Donnell the Edge Quimby, welcome you to Springfield’s first booze-free St. Patrick’s Day!”
Just a heads up, there is a new update on the server. This is (likely going to be) an App Store Update. This will remove the Christmas splash screen…and possibly the snow. Not for sure that it’ll remove the snow, but good chance. So take a photo of your town (via Town Portrait) while you can, to preserve its appearance in the snow.
From what I can tell, this is likely a mini-event. That will run from tomorrow (Jan 15th) to Jan 29th.
It’s bath and bedtime for the little Addicts, so I’ll possibly have more info for you on this later tonight after they’ve gone to bed. For now know that there is an update coming. So there’s something to be excited about! 🙂
Light SPOILERS Below the fold… (Oh, and before you ask…because I know you will, I do NOT see the Golden Goose coming back with this one)
UPDATE: Yes, it is, in fact, an app store update. And it does, in fact, remove the snow. So take a town portrait shot before updating…
Well, the new mini-event teased yesterday has launched in Springfield. It’s now Poochie’s chance to shine!
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to download the newest update from your App Store….
Itchy & Scratchy kick things off with some dialogue about going on strike! This will be followed by a 6s task for Krusty and 5 Springfielders. Once you’ve completed that task you’ll launch the Poochie’s Dog Dayz mini-event! Let’s take a look….
It’s the night before an update…we hope…and not a whole lot has gone on in our pocket-sized Springfield’s for a few weeks now. While slow periods in the game is nothing new for older players (“back in the day” we’d go many weeks without new content…just our own speculation), it is something new for those who started TSTO in late 2015 and beyond.
Personally, I typically don’t mind slower periods in the game…one of the reasons I love Mini-Events…but this slow down has a been a little too much for me. (although I’m not going to lie, I have enjoyed not having to crank out as many posts the last couple of weeks) As a Tapper of 5+ years and a blogger for 4+ years, downtime is nothing new to me. However, this time it’s felt different. This time it’s felt too slow. I don’t know if it’s because it’s smack dab in the middle of winter here, so there’s not a ton to do outside. Or if the constant cycle of updates has gotten to me and I’m just constantly ready for something new. Who knows. But I wanted to see what you all thought….
So I thought a little poll question might be in order…
