    The game transitioned so gradually into the **** events. Condoms as event currency was just too far, IMO.

    True, but we should have seen it coming with the July 4 update, what with the nude wrestling between Lincoln and Washington. Worse: it was an indoor task.

    At least they gave us a treat for finishing the event: you got to have Maggie! Unfortunately it also led to a whole debate on sex ed and abstinence which was precipitated by the inclusion of Helen Lovejoy into the game but man what an epic event that was :shock:

    Her epic ****-off/****-off with Lady Gaga was one for the ages and led to so many fights over who is the most overrated :shock:

    I don't mind. *shrug* But I am surprised not more people are upset Valentine's isn't coming. Either that or they are in denial or will settle for a small questline. Either way, I'm actually rather indifferent but TSTO is already dying and no event is just throwing dirt on the grave.

    My fave was when they brought P*mp Bender & the groovy green space babe characters the following Valentines...
    Spinning the wheel of booze for Duff currency was a blast

    You are all wrong!! No event came even close to the 3000 Futurama crossover event!

    My great great great great great great grand children loved it!

    But the 2014 Valentine's event started on the 5th. It's only the 7th and it's a weekend. I still expect them to have one. They have a whole lot of people waiting for rose bushes and valentine trees. Last year it was rather drawn out. Maybe this year will be something short, because they're planning something special for Level 50?

    Ok. I can take bad jokes that go on way too long like a skit from SNL and even Barry's **** rubbed in my face. But you just crossed the line!

    We're not getting an event update today or tomorrow since it's the weekend. I think we could agree on that. A Monday event update? Pretty unlikely.

    The earliest we would get the update is the 9th. More likely the 10th if EA actually is working on a full sized event. 4 to 5 days distance would be unprecedentedly close to the day of the holiday and leave much less time for the event. That's not to mention the Black Market sale lasts till the 12th which is basically a wink we won't get another update until then. Odds are significantly against us getting a full Valentine's event.

    Like I said earlier, I wouldn't be surprised if we got a questline but I wouldn't hold my breath for an update that lasts more than a week. Valentine's was always a minor event to begin with. Anything smaller than what we had previous years I would hesitate to call it an "event" at all.

    Well then, back to the dedicated task of tasking...

    Boy that Valentines 2020 was a beaut though!
    Will never forget the Duff Beer vs. **** Girls Krusty Casino Strip Poker Contest.

    They really elevated the bar (or lowered in some perpectives) with earning red & pink lingerie & bikinis for the characters...
    tumblr_mtyw6vHt941qhccpao1_500_zpshrhvdhpg.png
    ...& the donut prices were decent for the Foam Bath & Krustoria's Secret Lair!

    The real cherry on top was seeing the SouthPark Raisins girls cameo from that weekend's crossover episode!

    The Easter event started just 5 days before the actual holiday. :wink:

    The sad part about the cameo: they made a joke about their network and cancellation of a certain show that used to air on it that also had a crossover with The Simpsons :evil:

    I am almost positive they will do something for Valentines Day. However, this year it will probably just be a quest line with a limited 5-day Valentines event shop.

    Maybe they are saving for a big Level 50 event followed by Easter/Spring event.

    I'd say this is a good bet. The holiday is only 4 days and last year it kicked off on like Feb. 5th or something.

    I'm changing my vote in the "Worst Event" poll. Valentine's 2015 is officially the worst event ever. Even worse than Easter. Who's with me?

    I also agree. Any Valentine's event would have been great. Even if they replayed the same event as last year, it would have been better than what we have now, which is nothing! I miss collecting those red hearts:(
