Tap Ball Event Event Guide

The event's guide.

The Tap Ball 2015 Event was the fifteenth major event to be released for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. It was released to all players on June 23, 2015, almost a month after the conclusion of the Terwilligers 2015 Event, and it ended on July 21, 2015. The event added new characters, decorations, costumes, buildings and consumable. This event was also combining elements from previous events such as prizes, crafting, daily tasks and upgrades.

The event was divided in three different Acts and the Soccer Cup 2015. The four parts were scheduled as following:

  • Act 1: June 23, 2015 - July 3, 2015
  • Act 2: July 3, 2015 - July 13, 2015
  • Act 3: July 13, 2015 - July 21, 2015
  • Soccer Cup 2015: June 25, 2015 - June 30, 2015

Progressing through the Meet My Trophy Life launched the Event. The player then had to build the Grass Field and the Stadium Entrance in order to be able to play Tap Ball. They also had to deal with Daily Training's Tasks and Sports Fans which were visiting Springfields.

Through the event, the player had to collect Foam Fingers (Act 1), Hats (Act 2) and Pennants (Act 3) in order to unlock the personal prizes. Amateur Bucks were currency used to upgrade the Tap Ball Players and to craft new items at the Amateur Shop.

Tap Ball Edit

Main article: Tap Ball

Tap Ball is a limited time game introduced on June 23, 2015 with the Tap Ball 2015 Event. Players could compete against each other in order to win Foam Fingers, Hats or Pennants as well as Amateur Bucks.

Amateur Shop Edit

The event introduced a feature called Amateur Shop, which was similar to crafting during the Terwilligers 2015 Event or the Treehouse of Horror XXV Event. Items could be crafted throughout the whole event once they were available and weren't limited to a specific Act. However some of the items required the player to have progressed to a certain point in the event. All items were purchased with Amateur Bucks, but could also be obtained with Donuts.

A list of a craftable items along with their prices and requirements can be found below.

TriviaEdit

  • On July 7th an update was released that drastically reduced the amount of Sport Balls required to reach the Community Prizes as well as the price to craft them in the Amateur Shop.
  • On July 14th, EA made a second revision that further lowered the amount of balls required to reach the Community Prizes.
    • The required amount of Sport Balls isn't stored in the files. It's pulled from the server each time the players enter their game.
