Hey there Hoppereenos.
By now you and most your Neighbors should be updated and at LEAST have the Super Squad HG built. If not, you are gonna be a bit behind.
Now on to the basics of visiting your neighbors. These will be VERY similar to those in Issue 1 & Issue 2. There is a LOT of info (most you should be aware of by now) but I will break it into sections to help you out better.
HOW MANY ACTIONS DO I HAVE IN NEIGHBORS?
The breakdown for this event is as follows…
90 Actions to Capture Criminals (about 30 Visits): 3 Criminals per town with a payout of 3 Freeze Rays per Criminal. (The Criminals Appearance has not changed, but will still put out the new Currency for Issue 2.) You will also get Friend Points with the New Level 50 Items released. More on that below.
100 Actions to Report Crimes: 3 Buildings per town with a payout of 1 Freeze Rays per Building. I was able to keep going through all 100 of my neighbors. (Add more Neighbors to your town HERE). Continuing to tap will also help your Neighbor gain FP.
Criminals will show up all over the town, including the Boardwalk if there are not many roads. So just take a quick scan for them. As in past Events, they also tend to creep to where you are in the town if you wait a bit.
Buildings and locations that are not already tapped will show the Red Telephone. If they are blank with nothing on them, it is very likely your Neighbor has not cleared the Radioactive Signals just yet on their end. Try again later. You have 24 hrs to revisit them still.
WHAT IF MY CRIMINALS ARE PAYING ONLY $$$ & XP?
If you are only seeing a payout of $$$ & XP or nothing at all when you tap a Criminal, it means you have already used up your 90 actions for the day and have to wait until your 24hrs resets. Or they have not updated to New Hero Rises Part 2. Once it resets, you will be able to go back in and start over. Same for questline.
Best thing to do while hopping in n out of Neighbors, is just pay attention how many Captures and Reports you have left as you Visit. If it is ZERO, then you are done with your Actions for the day. So watch for both issues. You ran out of 90 Actions and those NOT updated towns.
FRIEND POINTS FROM TAPPING ON CRIMINALS
With 2 new Friend Point Prizes added to our silly lil games from Level 50, you now will need to MAX out those FP in order to get those Random Free Donuts from Neighbor taps.
It shouldn’t be too hard to get right back up there though, with all the activity going on for the Superheroes Events FP are flowing quickly.
You can get them from just tapping on your Neighbors Criminals. Criminals are set as the “Daily Action” item in this game, so tapping on them will pop out Event Currency, XP, $$$, and FP until you hit your Daily Action MAX. Here is how the Friend Points (FP) will break down daily.
10 First 30 Daily Actions (Approx 10 Neighbors)
5 Next 30 Actions (Approx 10 Neighbors)
4 Next 30 Actions (Approx 10 Neighbors)
2 Next 30 Actions (Approx 10 Neighbors)
1 Next 180 Actions (Approx 60 Neighbors)
So for a total of 100 Neighbors tapped in a 24 hr time period you can earn 810 Friend Points. That means MAX FP Level in no time at all.
Here is a quick recap of all the FP prizes and Levels
Level 1 (1000FP): Olmec Head
Level 2 (2000FP): Singing Sirloin
Level 3 (1500FP): Snowball II
Level 4 (2000FP): Homer’s Car
Level 5 (5000FP): Stampy
Level 6 (5000FP): E.A.R.L.
Level 7 (3000FP): Capital City Goofball
Level 8 (5000FP): Cool Lisa
Level 9 (4500FP): KBBL Radio
Level 10 (4000FP): Marge Tetherball
Level 11 (5000FP): Mr. Teeny
Level 12 (2500FP): Little Black Box
Level 13 (5000FP): Stewart the Duck
Level 14 (3000FP): It Blows
Level 15 (5000FP): Canyonero
That will push you to Level 16 and MAX when you complete collection for the Canyonero. Giving you TRIPLE Payout on Daily Actions and back to Random Pink Sprinklies.
This is something that has been long going on in the game and a pretty cool way to earn some Free Donuts from just tapping through Neighbors.
If you are at MAX FP Level, as you make your way PAST the 90 Neighbor Daily Actions on the Criminals, do not stop there. Keep tapping the Criminals. Depending on how many Neighbors you have, you can get anywhere from 1 up to 6 (which is most I got in one day) Free Donuts. Not bad for just tapping on through. You need to clear the Buildings for Game Currency anyway, so just keep on tapping Criminals at the same time too.
You may have already got a Free Donut or two and not even noticed. Just to give you an idea, I took a Screenshot of a Free Donut I got today during my daily visits (got 3 total). As you can see in the pic, it is a bit hidden and if you move through quickly it is very easy to miss.
Again, these will ONLY come from Criminal taps AND ONLY if you are at the MAX FP Level in your game.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I TAP ON A RED TELEPHONE IN MY NEIGHBORS?
You will then get the Payout stated above of 1 Freeze Ray per Red Telephone/ Building tapped as well as a possible Random Red Telephone for the Collector’s items. So Reporting a Crime just became more helpful in the Event. It helps both you AND your Neighbor, so tap all of the Neighbors you have. (The Random Red Telephones for Zenith City will NOT appear until the Collector is unlocked and you got past his questline… The Collector Part 3. More details and information on this will be in the Collector Post. )
Also, any animation the Building has that you tapped will come alive. This is a GREAT chance to get to see all those dormant ones in action again. So have fun tapping away and look for ones you may have not been able to see animation on in a while and bring them alive. Like the Guinea Pig Rescue or my fav… Bad Dream House.
If your Neighbor is not fully into the Event by now, I do not think they are playing and probably won’t even notice.
If they are fully into the Event and collecting at LEAST Carbon Rods, then you can tap on ANY building that has a Red Telephone on it and it will act just as a normal building tap. They will see the Spotlight on the Building in their town and can clear it for the Event Currency they are collecting. Vandalism will not happen.
If your Neighbor is NOT fully updated and NOT collecting at LEAST Carbon Rods, the tap on the Red Telephone on the Vandalism Buildings will result in them actually being Vandalized and seeing the Broom and graffiti on their end.
So if you both are updated, Vandalism will NOT be an issue this Event. 🙂
HOW CAN I GET MORE FREEZE RAYS FROM NEIGHBORS?
WHAT DO I GET FOR CLEARING THE RADIOACTIVE SIGNAL IN MY SPRINGFIELD?
This event is very Neighbor involved as well. When you go to a Neighbors town or they to yours and tap on that Red Telephone, it initiates the “Report Criminal” action. The one tapping on the Red Telephone gets 1 Freeze Rays for doing so and the one having their Building tapped on get an alert a Crime has been reported in their town and to hurry to respond.
Now how does the payout work on the Radioactive Signal? Well as soon as the Building is tapped and the Signal launched a countdown begins. How long it takes for YOU to clear that Radioactive Signal will impact what payout YOU get. It breaks down as follows…
Signal first appears up to 3hrs 59mins = 4 Freeze Rays per Signal
4hrs to 7hrs 59mins = 3 Freeze Rays per Signal
8hrs to 11hrs 59mins= 2 Freeze Rays per Signal
12 hrs to 15hrs 59mins= 1 Freeze Rays per Signal
As you can see, the sooner you clear those Signals the higher Freeze Rays payout you will get from each one. Clear them as fast as you can and as often as you can to allow your Neighbors visiting something to Report a Crime on. If you don’t clear them, your Neighbor will see no Red Telephone and have nothing to tap on Building wise.
FP FROM CLEARING THE RADIOACTIVE SIGNALS
To recap from above on the Friend Points (FP) from the Radioactive Signals now with Level 50… by tapping on Red Telephones in your Neighbors towns you are leaving them not only a Radioactive Signal to clear, but also 1 FP for every building you tapped.
This means every time YOU clear a Radioactive Signal off a building in YOUR Springfield a Neighbor left for YOU, you will get 1FP. Imagine 100 Neighbors tapping on 3 buildings each. That is a possible 300 Friend Points Daily by just clearing Neighbor taps.
No. The two are completely separate. Collect away. During this event you can continue to collect money from any building in your town. Your Neighbor will be able to tap regardless if there is $$ or not. The ONLY thing that will not allow them to tap is the Radioactive Signal on a Building. So clear those as fast as you can to leave places for them to tap.
There you have the basics of Visiting Neighbors and clearing their taps in your town. Want to know more about what YOU can do daily to earn the Freeze Rays Faster? Check out our Math Post on it all.
What do you think of this Issue 3 Neighbor Visits? Are you getting a lot of Freeze Rays? Have you hit your FP MAX again yet? If so, any Pink Sprinklies yet? Lol. Let us know.
