While I created this site with the vision in mind to not dwell on the recent unfortunate happenings of Tips and to make a place just as informative and comfortable as there I feel there’s some discussion needed from what has happened as a result of it all.
First, since the hijacking of Tips it has shed a ton of unfortunate attention on spAnser and although some have their opinions of him, he was VITAL in all of the file info and fed just about all of the Tapped Out sites their exclusive info. Because of the negativity and unwanted attention of this GameZino fellow, spAnser has closed his subreddit and all of the juicy upcoming info. Aside from what you may think it is a terrible tragedy for him to feel he has to withdrawal his awesome information.
Another situation that bears mentioning, something I just found, is due to GameZino’s takeover of probably THE most respected site for Tapped Out, EA has made a decision to take steps to recover a portion of their lost income due to sites like GameZino, Tapped Out Cheats and others. By the end of the year EA will be suspending accounts that show any connection on their servers to these sites. Any account that reflects participation in these sites and not the in-game store will be scrutinized and terminated.
My advice to all of you is to stay far away from any web service who promises exclusive game content in exchange for money. Also there are numerous reports of people having their accounts hacked by sites like https://www.facebook.com/TSTOCheats. Apparently they are accessing people’s accounts unbeknownst to the account holders and trying to accept payments via Paypal in return for premium items.
We at TSTOTopix do not nor will ever condone hacking or cheating but we are also not oblivious to the fact that a lot of people have used these services. We are not judges or jury’s and we do not belittle anyone who has done so especially due to the fact that a lot of them are good people. However please heed this warning if you have or are thinking about using a service like GameZino or TappedOutCheats. This GameZino guy has actually destroyed the very thing he was attempting to broaden and his presence in our world is completely unwelcome.
If any of you have been duped by the Tips posting for GameZino and have provided them payment or information please, by all means, dispute it with your method of payment. Whether he delivers as promised or not, the very fact that he hid under the cover of a reputable site to advertise his service making everyone think we were all endorsing it is false advertisement and wrong. For those of us that knows Mr. T, we know that he would never willingly endorse such a slimeball.
If you have used these services and are worried about losing your account I would advise you to start making legitimate purchases in-game. Don’t go broke to compensate but at least show EA that you are a paying customer. While I despise GameZIno and his affiliates and want to see him fall hard, I feel bad for all of the collateral damage that he has created by being incompetent and selfish. As I receive info regarding any of this I will update you all here. I’m glad to see this site progressing to success and we will recover my friends. Happy Tapping to all of you!!
