Update 10pm EDT: An update just hit the Google Play store…this adds nothing new to the game at the moment, so it’s most likely just glitch/bug fixes. And/or preparation for the new phase in 6 hours!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just a little reminder that in just about 8 hrs from now (0800GMT, 4am EDT) the Ray Guns will switch to Long Protein Strings. And any Ray Gun prizes you have yet to win will lock up and you will no longer be able to earn Ray Guns to win them.
So….if you’re not quite at the Hover-Copter, in the next few hours try to wrap up your squishing and see if you can earn those extra Ray Guns to get there! (Remember to check out our end of Phase 2 tips)
I know a lot of you have MANY questions regarding the phase change…so I’m going to try and tackle as many as I can below…
What time do the Ray Guns change to Protein Strings?
Timer is set for 0800GMT (4am EDT). So that’s when it should change.
I’m so close to winning the Hover-Copter, is there any way I can hold off updating till I get it?
No. This is an automatic update configured with time coding. So that means at 0800 GMT the Ray Guns will disappear and Long Protein Strings will roll in. There’s no way to stop this…
I don’t have everything, did I completely miss my chance to get the Ray Gun Prizes?
No. The good news is with the introduction of the next phase the Ray Gun prizes (Bulldozer-saurs and Hover-Copter) will move to craftable items (if you haven’t won them). So you can get a second chance at earning them via the Make-A-Thing Workshop!
When will Pirate Airship leave?
That’s not scheduled to leave until November 2nd.
What about Devil Flanders, Witch Marge, Frog Prince, Freak Mobile, Bad Dream House, House of Evil etc?
These items arrived in our game just has the Ray Gun Phase was hitting. There is a GREAT chance that they will be leaving tomorrow morning with the Ray Guns. So…while I don’t know for sure…IF you’re thinking about buying one (or more) of these premium items do so before they leave the game. It is entirely possible if you put off getting them…they will be gone by the morning. So make your final decisions with the thought in mind that they could be gone very soon…

Will we be seeing Gil soon?
You never know just when Gil will be making an appearance. However, past on past donut sales…I don’t expect to see him until Christmas. So if you’re holding off on buying an old premium item looking for Gil…do so at your own risk. Especially since these items tend to disappear quickly.
I have all the Ray Gun Prizes, should I hold off opening Treat Bags until the Protein Strings hit?
It’s not a bad idea. I don’t know for sure those Treat Bags will contain Protein Strings…but if you already have all the prizes it can’t hurt 🙂
Will the Giant Pumpkin, Pumpkin House, Spooky House and Hugo still be Craftable Tomorrow?
They should be. It doesn’t look like they have a timer linked to them…but with EA you just never know.
What About The Regillian Queen? Will she finally be in tomorrow?
Seems very likely that she will be!
So my friends, that should cover all the basics for finishing out the Ray Guns and ushering in the Protein Strings!
To sum up…Ray Guns ending at 0800GMT (4am EDT) on 10/31…so get all the last ones you can! When they end (and there is no delaying the end of them) Protein Strings will arrive with a whole new set of prizes. However, you’ll still be able to craft Ray Gun Prizes you might have missed via Make-A-Thing! Oh and if you’re looking to add any of those returning premium items…do so before 0800GMT or you just might miss out on them! (again not 100% sure they’ll disappear tomorrow..but better to be safe than sorry!) 🙂
