Spoiler Alert: The next update will contain…

It looks like EA is now announcing updates a day early on their Facebook page. This was just posted online (spoilers below!):

stonecutters

“Mysterious men have been spotted near Springfield. What do they want? When will they arrive? What is with their giant stone? Are you ready to discover the secrets of this cult before it is too late? Or just tired of being asked all these questions?”

Sure looks like the Stonecutters are coming our way soon! More details when we get them! 🙂

  1. They should make it so every time you tap a character that’s a stonecutter they will say what they say for example Lenny would say ” Who keeps the martians under raphs “

  2. It would be fun if they made tasks like “keep Atlantis off the maps” “keep the Martians under wraps” ” rig the oscars” ” make Steve Gutenberg a star” etc, etc…. And for those that haven’t seen the episode, those are the things the stone cutters do, as they sing their song. I know there is more, but that’s all I could think of this early in the morning

  3. They better have two tasks for Homer: Walk with the Stone of Shame and Walk with the Stone of Triumph (the larger one!) LOL. This could be a great add, but they may screw it up with premium content I assume so i am not getting hopes up yet.

  4. Looks like EA are running scared! Family Guy release a 31 day event that is, so far, awesome and TSTO are now posting spoilers of an event they are going to start! Since Family Guy I only check into my town once a day to clear handshakes. I finished the latest level in about 4/5 days so it’s just got more and more boring. Can’t rearrange my town as I have needed land since December. At least TinyCo listen to us and make adjustments. They also make it easy to win clams all the time for those Freemium players. I wondered how long it would be before EA released an event. Most of my friends stopped playing TSTO after the Valentine Day event proved to be naff and switched to Family Guy. So far, I have not been bored with that game as they release new stuff all the time and have mini events every weekend.

    • I have a full premium town and lots of free space for new things. If you do a complete redesign and compact things into districts/areas rather then individual designs for every single building, you’ll have more space.
      FG is too expensive! I mean 250 clams for ONE epic item! 4or5clams/hour to clear land?!

      • Too expensive? I find that a little peculiar coming from someone who has a full premium TSTO town 😉 In my opinion, FG is a lot closer to how the “perfect” freemium game should be. After playing since launch I have almost earned enough to buy Consuela, and when I get her house I can most likely earn enough to buy Buzz Killington, The Brain Damaged Horse and Jake Tucker within a couple of months. I have no friends in FG at the moment since I don’t like it going through Facebook (which is of course a point in TSTO’s favour).With a full set of friends I would have a lot more clams, I think.
        Yes, it is expensive to speed up stuff, but the pricing of items is a lot better than TSTO when you take the posibillity of earning clams by playing into account.
        FG does it (closer to) the way I think it should be: The most coveted items are obtainable by everyone, IF you play regularly and but if you want the premium items that are for the more “hardcore” fans you can buy some clams to get those as well.
        Hmm, I guess you end up with the same “problem” that TSTO has – that it might be a small percentage of players paying for everyone else to enjoy the game, but I think that is just the nature of this type of game.
        At this point I am a lot more likely to pay for clams than I am for donuts but to each their own, I guess 😀

        • Im level 31 in FG with some friends 14/16 outfits but Im not near Consuela yet despite getting clams for character/outfit sets. In TSTO you get Donuts for level up, including bonus-level-up for toplevel players, instead of completing sets (one time pay out) you also get them by visiting friends, cleaning trash, sideshow you, doing quests.
          There is no way to abrupt a given task in FG, you have to use clams or wait it out. I dont really like the premium characters but I do like the animated decorations and those are as pricey as TSTO.

      • Fair enough – agree to disagree 😀
        Me finding it better might have something to do with the fact that there aren’t as many premium characters/buildings in FG at the moment, but think I have made nearly as many clams since FG launch that I have gotten donuts in a year and a half of playing TSTO. Sounds strange if you are not near Consuela if you are lvl 31 though. I’m lvl 27 (I think) and I am almost there. I have gotten a lot more clams from just visiting “other Quahog/Ollie” than from visiting friends in TSTO.
        Again, probably because of the difference in the amount of premium stuff but at this point the “free premium currency you earn in-game to premium stuff”-ratio is A LOT better in FG, in my opinion.
        Yes there are some expensive decorations – the Crippletron is pretty insanely priced, but I think it is fine to have 1 or 2 (more if the game goes on for a long time) items like that for those who are willing to pay for them as a way to “show off”.
        I just like it better that these things are stuff that is actually cool and more connected to the show – like Crippletron, Hindenpeter, Peterrang, etc. – than a fairly random whale, a jet-engine bike or some of the other “random” premiums in TSTO.
        Of course, there is a (very difficult) balance to find since you risk making many players mad that that stuff isn’t readily available unless you shell out some cash.

        All of that said though, the Stonecutter event looks awesome and I hope it brings TSTO back on track 😀

  6. Do we know when they will arrive?!? I loved the stone cutters episode. I have been hoping for this for so long!!!

  7. If they don’t give costumes to all the townspeople who are stonecutters (for free mind you), I’m not going to be a happy camper. Even if it’s just for a specific task.

    • By free I assume you just mean without donuts since I doubt you’d have an issue with paying ingame money for them as they become unlocked via some quest.

      Either way this is awesome. I hope they got Patrick Stewart to lend his voice for Number One.

      • Yes that’s what I meant. I’ve really begun to hate this greedy streak EA has been instilling in the game what with all the premium-only characters and the like and very little for ingame $$$.

    • Sounds like one of those. Hard to tell which, though since we just got level 41, I’m guessing an event. But I could be wrong! 🙂

      • I am guessing an event or an expansion of sorts… though given the LOW number of remaining characters to fill the stone cutters ranks it could just be a level.
