Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been partying a little too hard you know that Elves have taken over Springfield! Elves work hard and party even harder…so much so that even Santa bailed on Springfield! It’s your job to contain the Elves and send them back to the North Pole. In doing so you’ll earn Elf Bells..which will give you some awesome prizes!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the second phase, which lasts until the event ends (Jan 14th), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Elf Bells. The second prize awarded at 1,700 Bells is the Cannon Control Building.
Let’s take a closer look at this building and just what happens when it enters your town…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 1,700 Elf Bells the Control Building will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 1,700 Bell mark this message will still popup and your buildingwill be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Control Building will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Before you even place it in town…some dialogue from Professor Frink will popup. You will then be prompted with the task to place it, after that some more dialogue will popup. Here’s the full rundown:
Better One’s Elf
Frink: Professor Frink here. This pixie popper is impressive, but we can do better. I’ve created this custom control panel that will allow you to improve the cannon. It’ll really put the KAA in your KAA-BOOM! Cannon improvements don’t grown on trees, though. Really, nothing scientific does. Every time you catch an elf, you should frisk the frisky creature for cogwheels in its pockets.
Place the Cannon Control Building
Upgrade the Elf Cannon
Completed Task Earns 200 Elf Bells and 10XP
So here’s the deal with the Control Building:
-A building for Sprinfield. The control center of your cannon upgrades.
-Currently does not payout anything.
-Upgrading your cannon will decrease cool down time (by 15 minutes), increase Elf Bell rewards (by 1) and Increase Elves per blast (by 1)..in that order.
-To upgrade you need Cog Wheels. Wheels are earned through tapping Elves, Daily Bonus (day 5 earns 50 Cogs) or by purchasing them through the store for donuts (don’t recommend doing this).
-Conform-o-Meter Vanity +100
We’ll have a full breakdown of the Cannon and the levels in another post.
So that about covers all the details on this Control Building!
