Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Seeing a LOT of questions/concerns in the comments about not getting enough dark matter () in your game. You’re not able to keep up with the calendar, and you’re afraid you won’t get everything. And many of you are asking for tips on how to get more Dark Matter..and faster.
So let’s quickly breakdown the math and how to succeed in getting everything….
First, let me say I didn’t do a math post initially because I didn’t think we needed one. This event should be easy peasy…but seeing so many of you with concerns it may be a little more confusing to some of you than I initially thought. So I’m happy to break it down for you now…
Now, let’s establish a few things….
-To succeed in ANY event in TSTO you need to log in continually over a 24hr period. No this doesn’t mean being in your game every minute of every day. This means you need to log in more than twice a day to be successful. If you can’t do that, and you’re not willing to spend donuts, then you’re not going to get every prize an event has to offer. There is just no way.
-Successful tapping in this, or any event, comes in logging in every 4hrs. Everything is built on a 4hr schedule…so going in once every 4hrs is the best (and most efficient) way to operate during events.
-The Ralph way of tapping…don’t over think it. Just have fun and tappa, tap, tap.
So let’s talk about a tapping schedule. Many of you are concerned that you’ll have to go in every 4hrs around the clock, and you’ll get no sleep. This is NOT the case. As I’ve established over past events…you simply need to log in 5 times a day. ANYONE can do that…and you’ll still get 8hrs of sleep a night. (heck even 4 times/day should work).
Here’s my tapping schedule:
6AM, 10AM, 2PM, 6PM, 10PM then I go to bed….
And, honestly, there are many times I forget 1 or 2 time slots/day. Or I’ll spend weekends with my family and will forget to tap. And I STILL get everything.
But following that schedule, or something close to it, will work. The key is log in every 4hrs…4-5 times per day. And you’ll succeed.
There are several ways to earn dark matter during Act 1. I’m just going to cover the freemium ways that apply to everyone. If you have premium characters/buildings that earn currency..well you’ll just be WAY ahead of the game 🙂
-Second…the Robots. If you tap ZERO Robots in your town, every 4hrs you’ll have 80 Robots in your town. If you go to the PolyVac and start up the mini game it’ll instantly clear all 80 Robots for you, and you’ll get the credit. (So no crazy searching for these robots has to happen. More details can be found here). So you get 1 per Robot….
-Third…the SciFighter Game. Play that once every 4hrs and try to tap between 30-40 Robots each time (it’s not hard to do…just tap the flying Robots…more details on how to play this one can be found here). And you’ll earn roughly 130-180/4hrs from the mini game.
So let’s total this up…
Just for logging into your game for 1-2 minutes every 4hrs.
You multiple the 375 x 5 times/day…That’s 1,875. MORE than enough to keep up with the 1,847/day average you need to keep up with the Calendar.
So here’s the key to getting it all….
-Log into TSTO EVERY 4hrs, 5 times/day.
-When you’re in: clear the Multi Homer’s tasks (and reset) and play the Sci Fighter Game.
-Launching the game will clear the 80 robots that have built up in your town over the last 4hrs (so you don’t have to search for them).
-Once in the game try to clear at least 30 of the flying Robots (as part of the game).
This will take you a matter of minutes every 4hrs…just doing those few things ALONE and you’ll be successful!
Hope this helps some of you who are stressing out about this event. Really…it’s easy. Just step back. Take a deep breath…and log in every 4hrs. And you’ll be successful! 🙂
