THOH 2018

Prev13456718
Believe it or not, we're only three months away from this year's Halloween event. It's likely that there is only one major event and a couple of mini events between now and the annual festivities.

Most reactions to last year's magic-themed event ranged anywhere from indifference to disappointment to seething hatred. As for myself, I liked a lot of the content we got but it seemed more like Comic-Con cosplay than a Halloween horror event. My reaction to the event is much more mild than others since I didn't experience any of the glitches and gameplay issues that others did, but I know just thinking about THOH XXVIII makes a lot of you want to punch through a wall.

Anyway, the point is that the vast majority of tappers are hoping to see big improvements in both gameplay and content in 2018 for Tapped Out's most anticipated annual event. Will we get them? Who knows.

So, what do you all want to see this year?
- What episodic theme (or themes) do you want?
- What new content do you want?
- What returning content do you want?
- Who has to die if people don't get Witch Marge AND the cauldron this year?

    I hope they make two act instead of three as it drags on too much.
    TOUK is the best also have you considered Nuking :)

    I don't see that happening. If I had to guess, I'd say THOH is probably Tapped Out's most reliable moneymaker and I doubt they'll ever cut it short for that reason alone.
  • I'd like to see the introduction of the Springfield Costume Shop
    latest?cb=20130604194355

    Ideally, it should be a freebie at the beginning of the event. When tapped it'll take you to an event screen or directly to the store where you can purchase a slew of skins from Tapped Out's inventory so you can have as many characters as possible dressed up for Halloween.

    Through the costume shop, you should be able to earn new freemium skins and purchase old and new premium skins as well.

    In addition to stocking all the normally available Halloween skins, it would be a chance to bring back seldom seen old skins like Beer Stein Wiggum, Homer Barbarian, Bartman, Mayan Homer (for people who have been clamoring for him), Archer Lisa, Bouncing Battle Baby, U.B.O., Shredded Ned, Football Nelson, etc. etc.

    I think it's high time that we received devil moe and the pentagram with candles in a bundle. And patty and selma should have a viewable task of bowing on this pentagram. Hopefully it'll have a quick trigger decoration/task button. Nearly good enough for a gil deal I think.

    I have some predictions:

    1. Some people will love the event, and play it happily.
    2. Some people will hate this event, call it the worst ever, and claim they're quitting the game.
    3. There will be several threads asking for content that hasn't been added yet.
    4. Someone will ask where the handshakes from friend visits went during the event.
    5. Several random threads in Chinese will magically appear, then disappear. (thanks for deleting them mods)
    6. Most people (me included) will just chug along and enjoy playing a free game for another year.
    7. Thanksgiving will follow this event.
    8. Christmas will follow after that event.

    Anyone have any other predictions to add?

    :astonished: doesn’t time fly hey?

    Whatever they decide to do I hope I will enjoy it. I look forward to two events THOH and Christmas (or as it’s now known winter event).
    I just hope ea don’t mess it up.
  • One simple request : Trick or Treating with kids in costumes. Even if it's just a special 8hr task on the 31st and not for all three acts of the event. But come on - Halloween!
    "Not my Shmoo!"

    This is always a good idea.

    I like it. I'd also like the Devil himself. The version that kind of looks like Herman.

    Ghosts, ghosts, and more ghosts.

    -New haunted houses.
    -Haunted-house skins for houses.
    -Maude and the rest of the ghost characters terrorizing the town.
    -Ouija board used to solve riddles and answer questions for prizes.
    -New graveyards that spawn ghosts that will disappear after a certain amount of time. You collect them and get a bonus multiplier item based on how many you have after a certain amount of time.
    -Portals that will suck in crafting supplies if left open too long.
    -Reverand Lovejoy and the Pope performing exorcisms on possessed characters. You can pick the character who gets possessed based on the reward that particular character awards.


    Sample Ouija board questions:

    How many poltergeists are in your town? Go tap poltergeists, come back and answer.
    Is -character- possessed? Find character.
    How many characters are hiding in the church?

    Or, Genesis Tub. :D

    Absolutely. I'd very much like Tapped Out to keep including mini games like this in their events.

    Beelzebot from Futurama would be cool! I know it won't happen but it would be awesome.

    I like the mini games too.

    A graveyard similar to the Excavation Site would be cool too.

    Speaking of which, it's an old request but I still want a new wall & gate combo so we can all build our own cemeteries to put our graves, headstones, and crypts in. Some new headstones to go with it would also be appreciated.

    I'd like to see an event where we eagerly anticipate what it might be for three months and then are sorely disappointed.
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.

    Then you must have loved last year's THOH event... and will probably like this year's as well. :D

    We do this every year. Everyone shares their great ideas. I get all excited and then it's some stupid Harry Potter event.

    That can't be helped. Tapped Out and tempered expectations go hand in hand. Anything more and you're asking for disappoitment.

    We will see more sardonic posts like this one.

    The first THOH had all the kids (fewer then!) in costume and going trick-or-treating. The Nightmare Pile brought those costumes back but only one kid at a time can wear one. I agree, I’d like to see all the kids trick-or-treating again!

    The Costume Shop is a great idea.
