Hey there Hoppereenos!
Trying to figure out just what is going on? What to focus on first? Where to begin? Well, here to help as usual. Bouncing by with some of the Basic Mechanics of the New Tap Ball Event.
In this post, I will be going over that additional Prize Giving Option in the Menu. The Daily Training Challenges.
Completing Daily Training will bring a lot more goodies into your silly lil game as you complete each one. The really cool thing on these is there is NO TIME LIMIT on when you can start them. In other words, you can wait 10 days and then finish 10 in a row (depending on Character required, but you get the idea). The ONLY TIMER is the 24hrs to complete each task to get a Bonus.
Let’s take a closer look and get into more details on it.
WHERE DO I FIND THE DAILY TRAINING?
First things first, the Daily Training will NOT show up until AFTER you have completed Meet My Trophy Life Part 5 and around Balls of Glory Part 3. Just look for the ! on the Soccer Ball & Mit Icon and see if you notice the Stop Watch Icon. Meet My Trophy Life Part 7 will actually prompt you to Complete the Daily Training Challenge.
In the Lower Right Corner of your game, there is the Soccer Ball & Mit Icon. Tap on it to go into your Event Menu Pop UP. Look for the Stop Watch Icon Tab and tap on it. You will see the Daily Training info.
As you play along, you will also eventually see a Stop Watch Icon pop up in the Top Right Corner of your game. This will take you right to the Daily Training Challenges. (This Triggered for me in my game around Balls of Glory Part 4 & Fickle Fans. )
DAILY TRAINING INFO
Once you are in the Daily Training Screen, you will see a few different areas of Interest. Let’s take a look at them all.
PRIZE LIST: You can scroll on through to see all the Daily Prizes that you can win by completing each Daily Training Challenge. Tap on the one lit up and unlocked to see the details linked to it below.
REWARD: This is where it will tell you what you can win by completing the tasks below for the Daily Prize you currently have highlighted and tapped on up above.
COMPLETE IN: Here you will see that it will take 24hrs to complete the current task in order to get the Bonus in addition to the Daily Prize. This will start to countdown as soon as you trigger the task below.
BONUS: This is what you will win in ADDITION to the Daily Prize if you complete the tasks assigned BEFORE the 24hr timer runs out.
PAY DONUTS…: This is how much it will cost you to rush the current set of tasks for the current Daily Prize item and instantly complete it.
DIRECTIONAL ARROW: This is the tasks you will be required to do for the Daily Prize you currently are looking at. Take a close look as some require you to do the task MORE than once.
Example For Day #3
PRIZE LIST: Brain & Nerve Tonic
REWARD: Brain & Nerve Tonic
COMPLETE IN: 24h 00m 00s
BONUS: 800 Foam Fingers
PAY DONUTS…: 6
DIRECTIONAL ARROW: Make Mr. Burns Brew Tonic, 0/3
WHEN DOES THE 24HR TIMER START?
As soon as you tap on “DO IT” and start that very first Task for the Challenge, the timer will begin to countdown. You can keep coming back to check how many hours, minutes, and seconds you have remaining to complete it.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT COMPLETE IT IN 24HRS?
The ONLY thing you will miss if you do not complete the Daily Training Tasks in the 24hrs is you will NOT get the Bonus listed. So if you really need that Bonus to help towards your Personal Prizes… completing all the tasks within the 24hrs will be very beneficial.
You will STILL get the Daily Prize regardless once the task is completed.
WHEN DOES THE NEXT PRIZE UNLOCK?
Two different things going on here. First, you will only have the Daily Prizes open one at a time. So every morning (about 8GMT/4AM Eastern) you will have a new task open. ONLY ONE A DAY WILL UNLOCK.
However, if you have NOT completed the day before it will still remained lock and will not unlock until you complete the Days in front of it.
In other words, you can’t just skip from Day One to Day Five. You will have to do every single one day by day by day … in order. And if it is Day 7, you can’t jump ahead to Day 8, 9, etc.
WHAT ARE THE DAILY TASKS & PRIZES?
Here is the list of the Day, Task, and Prize. NOTE: This information is as of the day of THIS post. EA may change it at anytime during the Event.
Some of these tasks will be completed by the Character in their “Sports” Costume. So keep an eye out for those.
WHO ARE IN THE GROUPS?
Many of these tasks are asking you to use a Character Group. It is NOT the one listed in your Characters Section in the game. It is actually a specifically coded one into the game (similar to past Events). Here are the lists you will need.
Note: Some of these will unlock DURING the Event. So you will not have access to them until you Win them in the 3 Acts, Personal Prizes, Daily Training, or Donut Purchase.

HOW DO I PASS THE WIN TAP BALL?
In my game, it was just a matter of WINNING 2 Tap Ball games. This even included a Single Player Game. So just as long as it says you WIN at the end, it should check it off.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I WIN THE PRIZES?
When you win items like the 4-Pack Obesotade or the Brain & Nerve Tonic (came in 3’s) those will go immediately to your totals.
When you will additional Decorations like the Bleachers & Stadium Lights, you will notice they will show up in your “Amateur Shop” to craft now. Here is the cost for the 2 so far.
Single Bleacher: 900 Amateur Bucks, 2x4base
Stadium Lights: 1650 Amateur Bucks, 3×3 base but VERY tall. Lights turn off and on when tapped.
When you unlock a Character Skin, we assume you do need the Character themselves to put it on. We will know by tomorrow when Drederick unlocks how that pans out in “available to play Tap Ball” and will Update this post on it.
There you have it. You now have an idea of what to expect each day and who to possibly keep available so you can get started on these tasks right away.
What do you think of the Daily Training Challenges so far? Any Prizes you are looking forward to? How are yours coming along so far? Getting them done in 24hrs? Let us know.
