It'd be weird if there wasn't one, honestly. :)

    Appreciate the info, OP, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that this is a confirmation.

    Ditto on not going so far as to say that either, although not doing Halloween would absolutely be the most utterly foolish mistake they could make & certainly refute all logic in that it's a cornerstone of the show, so I'd say we can count on it 8)

    I agree, however he said that going by the past, he knows I'll like it (similar). :-D

    So, I emailed EA asking about this year's Halloween event and asking whether or not we would get one. Here is what they replied with.

    " Dear Maxim

    My name is Julio. I am an EA game Specialist who will be assisting you with your case today regarding you Simpsons Tapped Out issue.

    Firstly I would like to apologise for the inconvenience this issue has caused and the delay in the response. I appreciate how frustrating this issue must be.

    Concerning your inquiry, Unfortunately we can't reveal any information about that for the moment.

    However, based on the two last years , there should be something you would like for Halloween ;)

    I have sent your request to the studio, to let them know your expectations :) .

    Have a wonderful day,

    If anything is not clear/good enough for you, let me know, I will do my best to assist you again :)

    You can also find lots of useful information at our Help Portal or our Community run Portal.

    Doh' "

    Basically, IMO, this confirms a Halloween event or some sort of event. I can't wait! :mrgreen:

    It cracks me up that the first thing he does is apologize for the "inconvenience this issue has caused" and "how frustrating this issue must be". :lol: I sense that English is not his first language.

    But good news! Thanks for sharing!

    there might be something different though. WD was not here this year and HW will start later. Maybe something different and new and a small tiein for halloween? it'd be weird though due to the really nice previous HW events

    I can't imagine Halloween wont have an event. It could possibly be shorter. Halloween is too big for them to pass on.

    At the end of September people will whine about things they missed before they started playing the game. EA will capitalized on those players. For popular events there is more recycled items than new stuff. Halloween is one money makers for EA.

    There is no reason to say this won't be a big event. At the least it will be a small event like Valentine's but I have high expectations for this years event.

    I'm not really reading this as a confirmation. Seems like the same kind of assumption that people here make....there always has been an event so there probably will be one in the future.

    I think this means that Halloween will have real prizes like Stonecutters and Clash of Clones aka no wheels. Also I highly doubt Halloween will be a tie in it is a huge money maker for EA. Also people are acting like they don't want a lot of major events which is untrue they WANT a lot of major events. Here's why the major events don't interfere with normal updates plus they generate more cash for EA since we want the event stuff. So the more events the more money for them. So if anything I would expect a BIGGER Halloween event this year with more premiums of course. But that guy probably got a little sneak peak at Halloween as they working on it and he probably thinks the community will like it to. It doesn't confirm much but it still leaves me hopeful that we will get a great Halloween event thanks for sharing this :)
