Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
As we close out the final day of Ray Gun collecting and head into the 3rd, and final phase, (Long Protein Strings) many of you are wondering what you can do to get a head start on Phase 3. There are various things you can do to make sure you get a great jump on collecting those Long Protein Strings and ensure you can win all the prizes in the final Phase!
Let’s take a look at what YOU should be doing to get ready for the final Phase of the THOH Event……
Assess Where You Are:
You currently have less than 24hrs until Phase 2 ends and Phase 3 begins. (Phase 3 will officially start at 0800 GMT (4am EDT) on 10/31) Take a look at your Ray Gun Count. According to Bunny’s Calendar you should start today with around 6,460 Ray Guns and end today with just over 7,100 (which earns the Hover-Copter). Take a look at your own count. Are you right around 6,460? Do you have more or less?
If you have more…keep going. Do everything you can do to get those last few Ray Guns to earn the final prize. Once you’ve earned it…then follow the remaining tips below.
If you have less….contemplate stopping the full crunch to earn the remaining Ray Guns. Take a look at the tips below and think about following them to get a good head-start on Phase 3. You will still be able to craft the Hover-Copter during the final phase…and it might benefit you to stop opening treat bags and dropping eggs and store them up for Phase 3.
Remember…you can craft the prizes for Phase 2 during Phase 3 (if you didn’t win them) BUT you won’t be able to craft the prizes for Phase 3 if you miss out.
Save Your Gift Bags:
Keep sending your kids Trick-or-Treating every 8 (or 16) hours…but don’t open them! Save those treat bags for when Phase 3 starts. Remember..those treat bags often contain event currency (Probes for Phase 1, Ray Guns for Phase 2 & Protein Strings for Phase 3)…and when Phase 1 ended and Phase 2 started any treat bags held over from Phase 1 contained Ray Guns! So saving up your treat bags for when Phase 3 starts is a great way to get ahead of the game!
Of course this is based on what happened between Phase 1 and 2…no guarantee it will work for Phase 3. BUT it’s worth a shot! Especially if you’ve already closed out the Ray Gun prizes OR decided you won’t make it. It’s a risk worth taking 🙂
Hoard Your Grem-Alien Eggs:
Save up those eggs for when Phase 3 starts and drop them all on neighbors once the new phase hits! This not only gives you a great head-start, but it’ll also help your neighbors!
Hoard Your Ammo:
Just like your Grem-Alien Eggs, save your Ammo up as well! This way you can launch a full scale attack on those UFOs in your neighbor’s towns and potentially earn more Long Protein Strings!
Continue to Squish Aliens in Your Town:
Don’t forget to keep squishing Aliens in your town…you never know when one might contain a Grem-Alien egg, Ammo or a Treat Bag! So keep on squishing!
Be Smart About Visit Friends/Neighbors Today:
Allow your timer to reset so that first thing tomorrow morning you can start to squish Aliens to get the 90 from a friend.
The timer will reset 24hrs after you visit that neighbor. So make sure it’s lined up with the right time when you’ll be able to visit tomorrow. If you forget to visit today and don’t have a chance to visit until tonight, consider skipping it to allow you to visit first thing tomorrow morning.
So there you have it my friends….some tips to set you up to get ahead when Phase 3 hits!
