Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!
Issue 4 is upon us and it’s a epic boss fight! Who doesn’t love a good boss fight? It’s the perfect ending to an awesome event!
The cool thing about Issue 4 is…it’s unlike anything we’ve seen for this event so far! It’s completely different than the past 3 issues and it’s not frequent tapper centric! Issue 4 is completely doable for the occasional tapper…as long as you can log onto TSTO at least a couple of times a day (to reset tasks).
So, with a whole new Issue launching you guys have TONS of questions! And while we’re always around to answer any questions you may have in the comments I thought one central place for the most commonly asked questions (and some quick tips for the event) would benefit everyone. So it’s time for another Addicts Question Corner!
Let’s start things off for those of you experiencing glitches….
My Entire Event Reset! I’m Back at the Beginning & don’t see anything for Issue 1. What do I do?!
We’re starting to see this trend a bit in the comments. It seems several of you have had this happen…and it’s awful! Here’s a few basic troubleshooting steps to try…
-hard close and restart your device. Then restart TSTO. See if that helps.
-If not try a full uninstall/reinstall of TSTO. (restart your device after you uninstall)
-If that still doesn’t work then it’s time to contact EA. You can contact EA a couple of different ways. We ALWAYS recommend trying to get a Call Me Option to trigger…as usually the phone reps are much better than the chat reps (provided you can get a phone rep not located overseas). When filling out the contact form put in that you’re missing an item…often times that will help trigger it and technically you are missing an item.
Additionally, someone has started a thread over on the EA Help Forums for this issue. So you can head over there and add a Me Too to the issue…the more players that “light up” the issue the better it is for everyone…
Criminals Are Not Appearing for Me, What do I Do?!
So Criminals will not start spawning until after you’ve completed the first hero fight against the Statue. (after you’ve sent the first 5 heroes to attack it) You’ll then see some dialogue popup from Fallout Boy talking about the statue being magic & Radioactive Man hating magic. After that some dialogue will auto-start from Fallout Boy telling you to tap Criminals. You’ll then get a popup saying Tap 30 Criminals. At this point Criminals should start spawning in your game. You can tap the Do It button next to Tap 30 Criminals and that should bring you right to where some are.
Note: Also try going to Krustyland (or visiting a neighbor) and coming back to your Springfield. Often that helps clear something that’s stuck.
IF you’ve done all of this and they’re still not spawning (even after clicking the do it button) try the basic troubleshooting listed about. If they still aren’t spawning it’s time to contact EA. Again we always recommend triggering the call option if possible.
Additionally another thread has been started on the EA Help forums for this issue. So light it up! 🙂
So now let’s talk about the non-glitch related questions…
I Only Have 4 Characters, Can I Still Complete This?
Absolutely! The tasks run from 3-4hrs, so if you have less than the 5 heroes it takes to defeat the Statue just simply send someone twice. So instead of it taking you 4hrs to defeat it, it will take you 8. Still completely doable. Just remember to try and log onto your game when those 4hrs are up (or as close to that time period as you can get) so you don’t lose valuable time.
Where Are Moog, Ice Princess Martin & Sexy Stupid Flanders From? Can I Buy them now?
These are skins from events of TSTO past and currently not available in the game. So no, unfortunately you cannot get them now.
Moog was a free skin for Moe from Halloween 2014.
Ice Princess Martin was a free skin for Martin from Christmas 2014.
Stupid Sexy Flanders was a premium skin for Flanders from Christmas 2014.
I’m Having a Hard Time Finding Criminals, Is there An Easier Way?
Absolutely! When the task pops up you’re going to see the option in blue for Do It. Just tap on that and it will take you to where the Criminals are..you can do this as often as you need to until you hit the 30.
What’s a Good Pace For Me To Be Playing This To Get Everything In Time?
There are 5 levels and just under 7 days to play this phase (Ends March 31st). Try to complete 1 level (defeat) per day and you’re golden. Do more than that…even better! For example most of you should be able to get the Rad Mobile today (2 defeats) just because the first two parts are simple.
So just play on a pace to get at least one defeated Level/day and you’ll get everything in time!
Level 1 should be completed by end of day on 3/24
Level 2 Should be completed by the end of the day on 3/25
*Awarded Rad Mobile
Level 3 Should be completed by the end of the day on 3/26
*Awarded Kane Manor
Level 4 Should be completed by the end of the day on 3/27
Level 5 Should be completed by the end of the day on 3/28
*Awarded Radioactive Man
What Order Do I Need to Complete the Tasks in?
Here’s the quick breakdown:
Level 1- 5 Heroes to attack (try to complete by the end of the day on 3/24)
Level 2- Clear 30 Criminals
-Send 5 Heroes to attack (try to complete by the end of the day on 3/25)
Level 3- Clear 30 Criminals
-Send Fallout Boy to Research the Statue (12hrs)
-Send 5 Heroes to attack the Statue
(try to complete by the end of the day on 3/26)
Level 4- Clear 30 Criminals
-Send 5 Heroes to attack the Statue
(try to complete by the end of the day on 3/27)
Level 5- Send Fallout Boy to Meditate (12hrs)
-Send Fallout Boy to Deal the Final Blow (8hrs)
(Try to complete by the end of the day on 3/28)
The tasks will appear via questline in that order. Remember you cannot jump ahead with this, so you’re not able to complete a task out of order. The questline will guide you through what to do and when.
What Happens to the Statue When I’ve Defeated it?
The statue will remain in Springfield and you’ll get the option to change it’s appearance. If you tap on the statue it’ll show you a toggle screen, where you can choose which version of the statue you’d like to display in your town. You can go with the original…non-glowing version (you know the one you purchased in the store)..or any of the glowing versions that were shown while you were defeating them (see list above for images). So you can choose which statue version you’d like in Springfield…
Currently the Statue can only go in Springfield…
Do I Still Need my Prison?
No, you can store the Burns State Prison if you’d like as it no longer spawns Felons.
What Are the Friend Actions for Issue 4?
There are no friend actions for Issue 4. Friend visits have returned to normal, where you take the $ signs over their buildings (or other icons) and get money or FP (if applicable). In return they’ll receive a handshake in their Springfield when they return.
Be sure to leave items in your town for your neighbors to tap, as now you must have buildings available for tapping (unlike before).
WARNING Vandalism is back! So be careful who you tag if you’re on the no vandalize list.
Ok my super tapping friends…looks like this complete your most commonly asked questions (so far) about Issue 4. Hopefully this information will help you all out!
