We’ll Be Back…

Hi guys, after last weeks news that this website would be closing with immediate effect, I spent a lot of time reading your comments and thinking hard about what you said within them.

That said, I myself was upset that there was nothing I could do about this situation so I thought about it long and hard for a number of days and I think I’ve come up with a solution.

There’s noting I can do about bringing back this website (tappedoutdaily.wordpress.com) but after examining the issues that caused this issue I have discovered that there is noting saying that I can’t set up Tapped Out Daily again – using another domain – so that’s what I’ve done!

Beginning on Wednesday (July 1st) Tapped Out Daily will rise from the ashes and once again bring you all of the information you love about the game you love to hate! We will, as I’ve said, be moving to a new domain, on blogspot – but that’s not the only change you’ll notice.

When we relaunch it will be very ‘bare’ as it’s going to be a sort of rush job just to get us back up and running – so it will take quite a bit of time to get the backlog of information over to our new site.

The new site is live now, although its a bit of a mess and there won’t be any posts up until Wednesday, but you can have a look at it here.

I’ll talk to you all on Wednesday when we move to our new home!

I’m Afraid It’s Goodbye….


Dear Friends,

It seems like just yesterday I was sitting at my computer following the demise of tstonews wondering what to do next. Wondering, where I could get the information I needed to play the game to get the most fun out of it. Then I thought, well why don’t I set up a website? Tapped Out Daily was born out of this idea.

So I set out on my way to setting up a website that was in the same vein as tstonews, only better and more regularly. I wanted it to be a friendly, funny place where fans of the game could come and express their views fairly and without criticism, because of you, the fans, and now friends – this was made possible and then surpassed.

This site has been in operation for almost 2 years and in that time I have covered some of the games best (and worst) moments.This site went live on August 11 2013 and it’s been nothing but an amazing experience since then. It is because of you and your dedication to this site that has made this journey possible.

But I am afraid it’s time for me to say goodbye. Know that this is not my choice, Know that I am being forced to stop publishing articles on this site by a third party. Know that if I could continue to report on the game for you, I would jump at the chance. I will miss you, your opinions and the conversations that some of us would have in the comment section of some articles.

I have sent the last month and a half try to come up with a compromise that would allow me to continue but sadly no deal could be reached. The site will remain open in the sense that you will still be able to post and find friends and access EA’s official support centre using the menu bar above.

Although I will no longer be able to post here, feel free to find me on the EA forums, username alzo93, and send me a PM if you’d like my help with anything. I may set up a new site on another platform, but I will need some time to think it over first. Should I decide to do that, I will put it in my sig on the EA forums.

I will not end this letter with goodbye as it just seems to ‘final’ to me, instead all I will say is, until the next  time.

Neighbour Visits Are Pointless!

So, we’ve been enjoying this event for the past number of days and I’ve come to realise something – neighbour visits are completely pointless this time around!

When you visit a neighbour, assuming they’ve updated that is, you get just one spade per action, meaning you get just 3 spades per visit, per neighbour.

Unlike other events though, it is possible to get event currency from all of your neighbours. However it just doesn’t seem worth all the effort this time around.

As for the weird ass green things in neighbours towns – they are more likely to give you crafting materials rather then spades and besides, you can accumulate crafting materials easily enough in your own town.

The premium farmers licence doesn’t do much either. It just doubles the number of spades you get in neighbours towns from 3 – 6. So not worth what they’re asking for it.

So, with that little rant out if the way, will you be visiting your neighbours?

Updated Menu Bar

I’ve updated the sites menu bar with a new tab called ‘Contact EA’. Clicking on the link will now take you directly to the Simpsons dedicated help section and give you the ability to message with tech support to try and resolve any issue you might have.

If you have any other suggestions on how I can improve the site, drop a comment below and I’ll see what I can do!

What Is ‘Cecil’s Tasks’?


Fairly early in the event you’ll be prompted by Cecil to complete a series of tasks known as ‘Cecil’s Tasks’. Here’s how they work;

  • There are four tasks to complete each day
  • The day resets at midnight (12am) GMT
  • The tasks vary in length from 1 – 6 hours
  • The tasks are generated randomly so not everyone will have the same tasks
  • Completing the tasks earns you event currency
  • The cost of rushing these tasks costs TRIPLE that of a regular task of the same length
  • The tasks you get depend on what characters you have unlocked

A list of possible tasks and the characters that can complete them will be available tomorrow as I’m still digging through the files to get all of the relevant info for you guys!

What Can I Craft During Act 1 Of The Event?

Here’s a list of everything that you can craft during act 1 of the event. It includes how many materials you’ll need, how much it would cost you to speed up using doughnuts and exactly when they’ll show up in the crafting menu!
