I thought I’d take a detour from the Level 33 and Level 34 content and talk about something I’ve had on my mind lately and just read an article from one of our great friends named kera2k from another trusted site called tstonews.com. This article all but confirmed my theory.
The specualtion now is that EA has stopped allowing the insertion of raw files into the updated game files. The importance to us weirdo Tappers, is so that a skilled person can go in , decode and read the files because they contain incredible info on what EA has either planned to put in the game previously or what they have planned next for the game. A lot of awesome people like spAnser has always been able to tell us what’s next and have allowed us to create Spoiler posts.
Since the irrational takeover at tstotips, there has been an enormous amount of collateral damage. Too many to AGAIN cover it here but one thing that is different since all of that nonsense is that EA had placed nothing in the files and as a result have shut us all off from any juicy upcoming info. I found out just yesterday that after this surprise update EA has again elected to put nothing in the files to give us a hint on what may be next.
Take it how you want it but my personal take on this is this, EA has not released any type of statement on the whole hacking, Tips and GameZino situation, not that they owe us any but one would be nice. Rather than release a statement, I ‘m thinking they are stopping their practice of “the files” as sort of a “Hey , we still run this thing and we are still in charge here” type thing. Maybe this is their statement. Again this is just my theory.
I think this move of every update being a unannounced, surprise update stinks. One of my favorite aspects of these blog sites, now too many of them, were the spoiler posts. I didn’t NEED to know what was coming because of cash or donuts issue and have more than enough, but a lot of people rely on those posts to kind of prepare for what’s to come. Since EA is not releasing anymore regular land (HELLO EA!!! RELEASE MORE LAND!!!!!), a good portion of players are running out of room and it would be vital in knowing what “could” be coming for planning issues. That’s one take.
Another take on it is this and it’s simple, I do not go to a movie and PAY to watch it if I have seen the trailer for it and haven’t check previously on how much the movie costs so therefore I can plan. It sounds weird but that it the truth. So I want to know what all of you think, do you like the “file” info which leads to spoiler posts or do you just like to wing it and whatever happens, happens?
Either way, thanks to certain knuckleheads who have successfully ruined the routine of Tapped Out that a lot of us have become accustomed to, you can bet that the days of knowing what’s coming in the game are over. Let us know in the comments what you think and take the poll. Happy Tapping!
