Have you opened door 2 of the Advent Calendar?
Hello everyone. I truly had expected the event to have hit yesterday so wasn’t expecting to do a non-event post. In this post I speculate what some additions might mean to the VERY near future of Tapped Out.
I have a feeling that SOMETHING is hitting today – it isn’t like EA, judging by the current update timeline – to leave us a weekend without anything. This may not be the winter event.
Only 11 updates, in the 4 year history of Tapped Out, have hit on a Friday so it is rare for the event to hit today but there is still hope – it’s Christmas.
So I think a mini update will hit today with maybe a bit of dialogue, a few items and maybe a bit of a tease for Winter (like last year’s teaser dialogue). But what could be in this mini-update? Well … Let’s book back to the Halloween 2016 takedown …
It all makes sense: a thanksgiving mini-event (check), a winter event (it is coming) and ‘A recount of the presidential election’, I did believe that this was a joke but maybe not! Maybe we will get a mini-update with Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or BOTH (*shivers*). Or maybe we are just getting a few voting items (voting station?) revolving around Quimby. Or maybe something to do with President Lisa that we got with the SciFi event. Who knows? Answer: EA *annoyes grunt*
BUT in the takedown description everything seems in order: a thanksgiving event, a Winter event and an election update. Does that mean the election update is coming AFTER the Winter event? Again, only EA knows. But after Winter makes sense because it could tie in with the inauguration for Donald Trump.
Now to Christmas/Winter! Because of the slim chance that it will hit today, EA plEAse prove me wrong, I believe it will hit Tuesday 6th. Tuesday is one of the most popular release dates, especially recently, and the 6th is round the average for the Winter release dates. However Wednesday has become the popular release date so would be surprised if EA postponed it for the 7th.
We are waiting for the official EA tease on Facebook, IF they do one, but have they already given us some info?
We got a gnome box … Surely can’t mean anything, right? Well … The gnome box is a small tie-in to the episode “The Nightmare before Krustmas”, an upcoming Christmas episode, but it seems a bit early for them to add it JUST for a tie-in so I believe it will play an essential part in this year’s Winter event.
What else does this tell us? Well … The episode ” The Nightmare before Krustmas” features a few Krusty family members including Sophie and a bring back, ghost form, of Rabbi! Could the tie-in also be saying we might get a Hanukkah themed winter event?? Wookie and tappers globally have been speculating and pleading for a Hannukkah/Jewish Winter event so is this THAT year.
All speculation but for the brief summary, here are my SPECULATION date predictions:
- Today (Friday 2cd): mini-update
- Over the weekend or Monday: a Winter Facebook teaser
- Tuesday 6th: the Winter/Hanukkah/Christmas event
Hope you enjoyed my spoonful of speculation. Speculate before about what you think is coming. Enjoy your day and Happy Tapping …2
