Tapped Out Event Walkthrough: Clash of Clones

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…Clash of Clones is coming to an end.  Are you sad?  Do you miss it already?  Anyway, I thought it would be fun…while we’re waiting for “the next big thing”….to go back and take a look at all the fun of the main Clash of Clones questline!

This questline has a lot of twists and turns in it and is really a fun one to read.  So just in case you missed anything while reading it, we’ve got all the fun for you here!

In addition to interesting dialog, the main questline branches off in several places.  What I’ve done for this walkthrough is run through everything in the main questline, Prince and the Premise.  This includes the questlines Clash of the Clones and The Power of Upgrades because those questlines branch off from the Prince and the Premise.

So now, what are we waitin’ for?  Let’s relive the fun and excitement of the early days of raiding shall we?

Homer: Chief Wiggum, I need you to physically subdue this axe-wielding muscular giant who clearly is a master of hand-to-hand combat!
Wiggum: Sorry Simpson, that’s a big no can do. In that there’s no possible way I can do it, thus the term, “no can do.”
Homer: Come on Grunty, knock it off. That’s my house — where I eat and sleep and look at magazines and stuff.
Homer: The pillaging, I get. Who wouldn’t want all my awesome stuff?
Homer: Like my extra-thick TV, my dozens of hidden mini-fridges, and all those magazines I mentioned – earlier.
Homer: But hear me out — you are in serious danger of over-pillaging.
Homer: That’s right, over-pillaging.
Homer: You pillage all this fantastic stuff, but you have nowhere to put it.
Homer: Then it gets ruined– on, and the ants get into it, and it’s Hibbert’s shed all over again.
Homer: Everything’s ruined – and you wasted all that great pillaging.
Homer: What you need is a place to keep all the great stuff you pillaged.

Homer: But all the stuff you’re saying is good for a larf! Why would I want to stop larfs?
Rev. Lovejoy: Then I guess you wouldn’t care that the Barbarian stole Ned – Flanders’ wet-dry vac.
Homer: That’s not good for a larf!
Homer: Hey, you, helmet head! There’s only one person who steals from Ned – Flanders in this town — and that’s me!

Barbarian Homer: Purple… purple… purple…
Archer Lisa: What’s happened to us. We’re a mess.
Goblin Bart: I know what we need to make us feel better. Just one more upgrade.
Wizard Marge: Do my cloak threads seem silver-ier to you? DOES IT???
Barbarian Homer: Purple…
Archer Lisa: Dad… what happens to all those people we send to raiding for us?
Barbarian Homer: Purple… dead … dead nerds… purple.
Wizard Marge: But what if we win the battle? Then they’re okay, right?
Barbarian Homer: Doesn’t matter. Purple. Still dead. Purple.

Archer Lisa: It’s all so clear to me now. These so-called strategy games are a scam.
Archer Lisa: You raid and you raid, you think you’re gettin stronger, but your enemies are getting stronger too.
Archer Lisa: And the more you play, the longer is takes to get upgrades. Until you have no choice but to use…
Mr. Burns: Premium currency.
Archer Lisa: Mr. Burns! What are you doing?
Mr. Burns: Saving you — from yourself.
Archer Lisa: PURPLE?!

Mr. Burns: The gold in these games is worthless. Elixir, it’s just corn syrup and codeine. The game gives you them for free to get you to cough up for premium currency.
Archer Lisa: It’s, it’s all a trick to give us the illusion of accomplishment.
Archer Lisa: But all they want is money. When we can’t feel anything anymore, and we have no choice, we have to pay.
Mr. Burns: Think about it. For $60 you can buy a fantastic console game with a hundred million dollar budget…
Mr. Burns: … that geniuses and artists have worked for years to perfect, giving you hours upon hours of satisfying gameplay.
Mr. Burns: But these so-called freemium strategy games offer you pared-down simplistic gameplay…
Mr. Burns: … but because you’re so hooked on upgrades, you end up spending hundreds of dollars on premium currency to just get back to normal.
Archer Lisa: It’s the ultimate scam.
Mr. Burns: I wish I’d thought of it.
Archer Lisa: So what do I do?
Mr. Burns: You steal the thing that they never thought you’d steal — the premium currency itself.
Archer Lisa: You mean — raid for… donuts?
Mr. Burns: That’s right.
Archer Lisa: But… people pay for those with actual money. You can’t raid for that. It’s not right.
Mr. Burns: “Not right?” This game has sent countless innocent nerds to agonizing deaths.
Mr. Burns: Your father is addicted to super-addictive Elixir. And the game turned your family into upgrade-starved wraiths. Is that “right?”
Archer Lisa: I don’t know anything anymore…

Wizard Marge: Where were you Lisa?
Barbarian Homer: Purple purple purple purple?
Goblin Bart: We were worried you wouldn’t be able to help us get that next upgrade.
Archer Lisa: We have to quit this raiding. We must cast aside the skins of inter-game strategy, and return to our lives of cute meaningless missions.
Wizard Marge: I don’t think I can.
Goblin Bart: Never!
Barbarian Homer: PURPLE!
Archer Lisa: Oh, I suppose you would prefer Mr. Burns’ plan, and break the most sacred rule of app-based gaming — and steal the premium currency itself!
Barbarian Homer: I sure would.
Goblin Bart: Me too.
Wizard Marge: … uh-huh.
Archer Lisa: We need to break the meaningless cycle of attacking. It just goes on forever, but nothing really changes.
Wizard Marge: You wouldn’t say that if you had the jeweled slippers upgrade. No one with the jeweled slippers upgrade would ever say that.

Archer Lisa: I know we’ve suffered at the hands of our silicon valley puppet masters. But I still don’t think this was a very good idea.
Barbarian Homer: Who is that? Who’s talking to us?
Archer Lisa: We just did to other players what you do to them every day.
Barbarian Homer: We raided those premium donuts fair and square as far as you know.
Goblin Bart: Don’t blame us if our upgrades are so awesome we can steal whatever we want whenever we want.
Wizard Marge: I’m the most upgraded lady wizard — I mean wizard — this game has ever seen.
Archer Lisa: What game are we even talking about anymore?
Barbarian Homer: Listen up you mysterious voice thing somehow speaking for an entire subcategory of tabled and phone-based gaming!
Barbarian Homer: Now that we have a taste of the good stuff – premium C, we can’t go back to “gold”.
Barbarian Homer: With cash-based donuts we’ll finally be living the way we deserve. In the now! No more grinding and waiting and grinding and waiting.
Wizard Marge: … and when the days are finally up convincing yourself it was worth it.
Goblin Bart: No way! We’re not scared of you!
Archer Lisa: Why don’t you return what you’ve stolen from all the players of these games around the world!
Goblin Bart: And by stolen we mean “an agreed upon exchange of goods and services.”
Barbarian Homer: Nice try, hippie.
Wizard Marge: No, Homer. He’s right. Think of all the moments people have missed with their families.
Wizard Marge: Moments they will never get back — just to try to get one over on these games without spending money. It’s so tragic.
Archer Lisa: Freemium games — both strategy-based and town building alike — are a blight on society!
Goblin Bart: Eh, I like touching screens. I stick by my choice.
Barbarian Homer: Forget it, you impossible thing that can’t speak but is speaking anyway, the Simpsons are gonna become the donut kinds of the cloud, and you can’t stop us.

And with that…the main questline is complete!  Whew!  What an update!  Lots of twists and turns, and spin offs!

Now that we’re at the end, what were YOUR thoughts on the event overall?    Thoughts on the questline?  Even if it felt a little long, did you still have fun with it? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

29 responses to “Tapped Out Event Walkthrough: Clash of Clones

  1. The only thing that pissed me off about this event was that I earned so much gold and elixir, 70.000 and 121.000 respectively, and all of it just dissapeared. There wasn’t a converter or something like that. I started playing TSTO a few weeks before the Clash of Clones event, and my question is if there was a converter in the previous events.

    • The event currency always disappears. Only once…LONG LONG ago…did they offer conversion…and even then it was not that great. And it was limited. Every other single event…the currency and items go when it goes.

  2. So glad this is gone. Wayyyyyy too long. Could have been renamed “Constantly get rid of nerds”. I only attacked strangers since the payoff was so much higher. The first couple of weeks only had ~10-15% hit rate for towns that had at least one castle & it was attackable. It improved some with time, but still had a low hit rate for towns that had attackable castles.

    I was always hitting max nerds so to get rid of them required spending a lot of time raiding strangers. So this at least doubled time spent on the game since I also had to visit neighbors for cash & FP (for those short periods I was getting FP). Visiting neighbors became a protracted waste of time (especially those damn house farmers) since very few buildings maintained a payout through the event, most were for attacking.

    The game itself kept moving/zooming to an attackable building in neighbor’s & stranger’s towns which zipped right by buildings with $ & Sideshow Bob. Made it difficult to impossible to relocate them.

    Why did the Barbarian lose elixir payout after his questline was over? Definite ripoff getting walls for the recycled castle & cardboard castle.

    On the upside, Homer & the Barbarian had some hilarious lines, especially about skull wine tasting like old headmeat.

    Stonecutters was great, this was pretty bad.


    • Does anyone know why it’s oct. 10th and I’m still playing??? I haven’t been offered the Halloween update yet…just a cyclonic violence quest to get 8000 more coins from raiding towns…I can’t even visit friends because their event ended on the 7th like mine should have

      • It’s an app store update. To get it you’ll have to actually go to app store and download the update. That’s the only way Clash of Clones will end.

  3. Yeah thx Bunny. Realized event ended today not tomorrow like I was thinking for some reason. Oh well I did get some nerds and spent most of my elixir so it’s all good.

  4. Brettgregg629

  5. Are the nerds gone from the store for everybody? Don’t have the Halloween update yet. I’m with Bunny. Wanted to use my elixir up on nerds. Everything else is still available in the store.

  6. I really enjoyed the event but I didn’t get to the end sadly (just 3000 short). I am glad that it has finished now though!

  7. CoC was fun but I’m happy to see it end. I hope they keep the ability to visit random towns. That was pretty cool. I wish the chained nerds had cost elixir instead of donuts, but I did buy a bunch of the game $ nerds as a memento of the event. Now bring on Halloween!

  8. Hi, Alissa! Thanks for the recap! I got over any disappointment with the event a few weeks ago; ultimately I enjoyed raiding towns and accumulating gold & elixir even though I’m not a big fan of the medieval theme. Ultimately I built the barbarian castle along my waterfront next to Sir Putt’s A Lot as a family fun attraction thing. I put the recycled castle and Boxingham Palace (just the main pieces) in my forest near the pumpkin house and freak tent as weird kid forts. I put some of the cardboard and recycled walls in my brick walled town dump and they look great there so I’m happy with the idea. I didn’t spend a single donut on the event (but that’s usual for me). Last night I began spending down my elixir (I had over 200,000!) so now I have a bunch of tents, barbarian castle walls and towers (just in case I expand it one day!), and windmills. I used some to upgrade the other two castles for a few extra pieces of donut-priced walls and I have about 40,000 elixir left. I think that’s pretty good. Anything else you can suggest? Thanks again to you and the Addicts crew!!! Happy Halloween!!!

    • Nothing I really suggest getting that you didn’t already. I got a few each of the main elixir decorations and threw them in storage…never know when they’ll be needed. Beyond that i spent the last of my elixir upgrading my castles lol

  9. The best part was the 30 free donuts during the event. 15 for starting to play the day the update came out and 15 for raiding for premium currency. The free barbarian and all the new costumes were cool too. I hope EA makes all the new costumes 50% more money and exp. During the event, the quests for the Simpsons just gave elixir. But, the end of an another event. Now, BRING BACK THE STONE CUTTERS EA!

  10. Thanks Alissa was nice to read through the whole event again.. My Barbarian Homer is at level 99 and need 300 gold. Dying to reach level 100 with this but I haven’t played for the past two days so I hope last minute random looting will push me over before everyone gets the new update!!

    For one, am glad that this piece of crap update it’s coming to an End….I know some of you say “it’s a free game”…well am a premium player and am Sorry to say that I have spend way to much for this game already… my days of playing this crap it’s coming to an End soon…EA, does not care about the players, all they care is how much you spend, and for that reason and I know, that all of the players that actually spend real money…( not those how HACK) there way into the game actually are tire of EA. and their bullcrap… e.g.launching an update that crashes every time you play it… keep playing this crap…. as for me, am getting off the wagon….

    • First…do you know any other ways to articulate what you’re saying with out using the word crap? (or any other curse words) Second…if the game makes you THAT unhappy, there’s a simple solution. Stop playing. For every 1 player like you there’s 100 that love it.
      And I bet, once Halloween hits later today you’ll be the first one saying how great it is.

  12. One of the features I found good was the zoom to building to attack when visiting a friend or random, and if it went to the ruined castle you knew there was nothing to attack and could move on. Would be good to have this with standard building visits. The only downside is it messes up the zoom to sideshow bob trick but hopefully he will become a main character 🙂

  13. If the event didn’t last as long, I’m sure people would have looked back on it more favorably, but it’s length made the entire thing wear out it’s welcome after about the 3rd week. Didn’t help that it lagged my tablet something fierce if I logged on and all my houses/castles were getting attacked.

    I wish they kept the ability to visit strangers though, I liked seeing new towns, even if some showed that people liked to make rude names/images using decorations..

  14. Where is halloween event? It’s 16:30 at night, October 7th and STILL NOTHING

  15. After the amazing updates with Halloween and Easter, even with their flaws, this one seemed like more of a side quest. It makes it even less thrilling with the amazing events with comic con on FG. I am very happy to see this event leave. It was ok at first, but there just wasn’t any mind blowing content in my opinion. I think that FG is really bringing the heat with their updates. I hope…no I pray, that TSTO brings the cast of Futurama with the upcoming episode. I have saved a plethora of donuts just in case. I will spend more to get the ship and crew if needed. Hopefully Halloween will tide me over. It also feels like these recent level updates have been an attempt to regain or keep the audience. They were very close together, and being at max level, I still do not have enough money for the last building and pieces of land. 20 million might take some time for the last to sky scrapers.

  16. I liked the way it was set out. Visiting random neighbours gave new players and people without many friends a chance to collect all the rewards…but 7 weeks was brutal!

  17. I wish there was a way to always be able to see random towns (and have the option to befriend ones we liked). That was my favorite part of the event.

  18. Overall I found it to be a fun event, great to see all the random towns. It’s just that the event was so long that all the quests and prize winning were completed over 5 weeks ago so it seems a distant memory.

  19. Wow…That was a read…Although thoroughly enjoyable! Thanks Alissa and rest of Addicts Team 4 your tireless effort!!! NOW BRING ON OLD HOLLOWS EVE UPDATE…
