  1. So clearly EA has a Black Friday event in store for us. Every character has a 2 hour “get trampled” task and Apu has three new tasks as a well. When will this event actually drop and the quest line start? Also, it’s sad they are over looking a great holiday in thanksgiving and going strait to Black Friday….


    1. Thanksgiving is coming. About the tasks they are not new at all. They are from the halloween of horror tie-in


      1. So is that 2 hr trample task permanent or will it be removed eventually? Is that an error?

    So glad I put Impossible Tower on the water which is where I’ll leave it.
    I was hoping THOH stuff would be placeable in KL…maybe one day.
    I would’ve liked more spooky ghosts than just one too.
    Overall I’d say the event was great for noobs but fairly average for everyone else.

    Liked by 2 people

  3. 2 new glitches:
    1. Springfield Falls still has dark green water.
    2. Items can no longer be placed on KL pavement in KL. You can still place items on grass and slide the roads underneath afterwards.


    1. SF is not a glitch. They haven’t changed the appearance of tree-hugging items back, probably won’t till christmas event


      1. I assume they’ll all get covered in snow next month anyway.


  4. I wonder if EA knows that they lost out on sales. I didn’t buy costumes because it was too many donuts for two or three tasks, but if they would have given them a full set to start I would have bought them.
