Update: Some of you have been commenting about a message from TSTO Today about Halloween…this popped up on my iOS device just a little bit ago. Could Halloween be coming tomorrow?! One thing’s for sure….Halloween IS coming! 🙂
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…the end is near! Tomorrow (October 7th) Clash of Clones will officially end. For some of you this might be a sigh of relief, for others you might be scrambling to get your last bit of gold and elixir. As of right now, we see no signs of this event being extended. In the past, if an event was going to be extended, EA would make an announcement several days before it was initially scheduled to end. As of now, no announcement & no changes to the files. So I think it’s a safe bet to assume Clash of Clones will be gone tomorrow. (and hopefully a new event in it’s place!)
So beyond the items what else do you need to know for the end of the Clash of Clones Event? Let’s take a look at some of the steps you should know to finish out the event and get ready for some kind of update.
Based on previous events this is what we can expect to happen tomorrow:
-The set end time for the event is 8:00 GMT (4am EDT). However, based on past events, the update won’t end at that point. It will take the update to remove it from your game. So you should still be able to play your game for some time tomorrow morning.
-Some kind of update will hit our games tomorrow. This will be an App Store (or Google Play Store) update, where you will need to actually go in and update your game.
–Usually, and again I say this because it’s based on what’s happened in the past, the update will hit sometime between 12PM EDT and 2PM EDT.
-The update may contain a new Event (like Halloween) or it could just be an update to remove Clash of Clones with nothing new in the game (like what happened after Easter). Right now we’re not seeing anything in the files to indicate anything. So we’re all flying blind & at the mercy of EA.
As always if we see anything in the files…we’ll let you know. Usually if something is going to appear in the files before the update hits it’s a 2-4 hr window before it actually hits.
What you can do to get ready if you’re on Level 45:
-Do not send your characters on 24hr tasks. Whatever task you send them on tonight into tomorrow morning make sure they’ll be free after 10AM EST (just to be on the safe side).
-Ignore all of the random quests the game will try to send you on between today and tomorrow, unless they’re short quests. Just because they’re telling you to Send Bart and Milhouse for a 24hr Sleepover doesn’t mean you have to. So hold off on those quests until you know what’s going to happen tomorrow. (you’ll know it’s a random quest because there won’t be dialog popup with the task request)
-Check your App Store tomorrow, again this will be an App Store update. So you will need to download and update TSTO for it to work.
Finishing Out Clash of Clones:
-If you haven’t yet cleared all of the prizes…keep trying. You still have time. Also, just because an update is here doesn’t mean you have to update your game. Because this will be an App Store update, if you haven’t yet cleared your prizes you don’t have to update your game. You can keep playing in Clash of Clones and earn more Gold and Elixir (usually 2-3 days after the update hits, although in the recent past they’ve forced Tappers to update hours after the update hit the App Store). Just keep in mind if your neighbors have updated it makes it that much more difficult to earn Gold and Elixir, since you won’t be able to tap their buildings.
-If you’ve finished the event…STILL HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS! Visit neighbors and leave buildings to be destroyed in your town. This is the best way to ensure your neighbors can earn all that they can before time runs out!
-Make sure you purchase all of those limited-time items before they’re gone, if you want them. They won’t be here late tomorrow for you to make a decision on. If you’ve already purchased the Clash of Clones items, they’re yours forever and will remain in your Springfield (or storage) unless you sell them or delete your game (via origin ID…not uninstalling from your phone). This also applies to items won. If you’ve won them, they’re yours.
So just what are the limited time Clash of Clones items? Well here’s a complete list of everything that you will no longer be able to purchase (with think) after October 7th:
Nerds!- Prices Vary
That’s it for limited-time items.
For the complete TSTO Addicts Guide to Clash of Clones check out our Clash of Clones Event Page.
Confused about what you should purchase before it’s gone? Well here’s my advice. If you have the Elixir buy everything, you can add a few of each (you can also store them). I’m not saying run out and spend all of your Elixir on decorations, but be sure you buy them before they’re gone. Trust me you’ll regret it in a few months if you didn’t purchase them. Plus, it’s part of your “battle scars” for playing TSTO. So next summer when new Tappers are coming into the game they’ll covet those buildings and castles!

As far as premium items go, check out our Should I Buy Guide (listed on the Event Page) to see if it’s something worth your hard earned donuts!
Remember the event ends tomorrow so be sure to purchase everything you need by tonight before it’s all gone!
