Hey there Hoppereenos,
Just wanted to bounce on by with an update on two main issues we saw with Act Two when it hit the game. The Gas Mask count being 3 and Edna Krabappel needed to continue in the Main Act Two Questline.
So just what is going on with these two items? Let’s take a look.
We caught an error with the Gas Masks I have been speaking with EA about. The Specialist Team looked into it as well. We went back and forth pulling details, stats, checking games. They see what I do with the counts and there is an obvious error that needs correcting. How this will impact game, I do not know yet. That will depend on the final decision at the Studio on how they will proceed at this point.
For now, 3 Masks will drop from the Mutant Sideshow Bob Clones in your Springfield, IF they go the route I am hoping they do… we may see an in game update increasing it to 5. But for now, 3 is what you will see.
I will let you know if I hear anything further back from the Studio in the meantime.
Mrs K hits our games round the Level 22 Mark, but why is this a concern? We saw going through the main questline that she is required to progress to the point just prior to players getting Sideshow Bob and the Opera House (Pushback Part 5). As these two items are CRITICAL to this Terwilliger Event, we had great concern for those just starting and/or on lower levels getting stuck at this point in long questlines that may not be able to complete before the Event ends let alone triggering the needed items.
So I addressed this issue with them as well while we were looking into the Gas Mask issue. I offered my thoughts, suggestions, and concerns on the matter. They are going to be looking into this as well. Again, the final decision will lie with the Studio on whether or not they will be making a change to the questline or put in a workaround to trigger an alternate Character for the task.
I will also update if I hear anything back. In the meantime, please send in a ticket to let them know how this will impact your game play progress for the Event. The more attention brought to it the better. I did not start a forum post on it as of yet, as I want to see how they proceed, but if you would like to… just let us know and we will be happy to help flood the forum.
There you have it. Two main concerns in the Act Two portion of the Terwilliger Event. I am hoping that we see an update to help resolve them within a week. Either way, just know we are keeping and eye out for you. 😉
What do you think of all this? Are you stuck in your game without Edna K? Have you notified EA? Let us know.
