Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just popping in with a quick reminder that Homer’s Chiliad ends tomorrow (June 15th) at 0800 GMT (4am EDT). Which means today, Tuesday June 14th, is your last day to finish earning those prizes and purchase any premium items you’ve been eyeing.
Let’s take a look at what’s leaving and what we can (Spoiler Alert) expect to happen next….
First up, all of the prizes will be gone tomorrow. So if you haven’t finished earning them, get on it already. 😉
After today you’ll no longer be able to unlock the following prizes:
Insanity Cauldron- First prize, requires collecting 20 Insanity Peppers. Insanity Mode comes with this prize. You won’t unlock it until you’ve completed the questline. But it awards currency, and launches a new game. More on this below.
Grow Insanity Peppers- Second Prize, requires collecting 40 Insanity Peppers. This will unlock the ability to grow Peppers at Cletus’. Grows 6 Peppers every 3hrs.
A Little Bit of Lenny- Third Prize, Requires collecting 60 Insanity Peppers. Cook-off stand for Lenny
Backwater Brewery- Fourth Prize, Requires collecting 70 Insanity Peppers. (Decoration)
Hellfire Pepper Cactus- Fifth Prize, Requires collecting 90 Insanity Peppers.
King Chili Tent- Sixth and Final Prize, Requires Collecting 100 Insanity Peppers.
Also leaving tomorrow are the following premium items:
Pro-Shop and Space Coyote- 120 Donuts. Should I Buy
Ajax Steel Mill and Roscoe- 150 donuts with a 50 donut rebate, so net of 100 Donuts. Roscoe returns from the Pride Event of 2015. I’m kinda glad because I forgot to buy him last year…pregnancy brain. Should I Buy This is a great buy. Premium character/building combo for 100 donuts…you can’t beat that price. Pick it up if you haven’t already…
Five Alarm Chili and Devil Flanders- 120 Donuts. (Or the stand alone for 75 donuts if you have Devil Flanders) (No should I buy specifically on this…it’s basically a glorified decoration…if you like it, get it. Otherwise pass 🙂 )
Hellfire Pepper Cacti-15 donuts each and award a .50% bonus.
So all that stuff is leaving, what’s staying?
The Insanity Cauldron mini game. That will stick around after the Chiliad Event is over. You’ll still be able to tap those turtles every 8hrs…for more details on the mini game check out this post.
Growing Insanity Peppers at Cletus’ Farm. You’ll still be able to grow the Insanity Peppers at the farm…although they will no longer yield you peppers. (In fact they won’t yield peppers after you’ve unlocked the final prize) The purpose to the Peppers now is the same purpose of any other crop at the farm. Grow it for cash and XP.
The peppers at the farm will earn you $200, 20xp/3hrs…and they’ll cost you $40 to grow.
So what’s next? **Semi SPOILER AHEAD**
We’re always waiting on the next big thing, aren’t we? That’s why we’re Addicts after all 😉
Well, as has been well documented…there is something coming. Something EA’s been planning…
My guess is this will most likely hit us tomorrow (Wednesday)…so be ready. Continue to play TSTO as you normally would, but don’t send any major characters on 24hr tasks…and be ready to download an update from the App Store in the afternoon.
Of course this could hit on Thursday and throw us all for a loop 😉
And that’s it my friends! Get ready for Homer’s Chiliad to end…and be ready for what’s coming next in the world of TSTO!
