All right…time for a little pragmatic realism here…
This ACT II is a bit EAsier than Act I…but not by much. rEAlly!
As we have seen, some folks had no problem finishing on time, with a few rounds of Bonuts thrown in (myself included), while others struggled. It is clear that playing Freemium, unless you have played for a long enough time to have a number of the bonus characters acquired through the years, makes it rEAlly hard to stay on schedule, unless you log in every 4 hours- 4-5 times every day. No skipsies….
I’m looking at who is available to do tasks…and it is pretty much the same list. So…we’ll just have to see if the same numbers prevail in Act II.
HERE IS THE CALENDAR…in two formats…I start right off today…no sugar coating. You are supposed to be rough, tough, spies…right? Continue reading →
So Act 1 is now over and Act 2 is underway in Springfield. For those looking for information about Act 2 you can check out this post from earlier this morning. Right now, even though we’re in the midst of Act 2 I want to take a minute to talk about Act 1.
I’m seeing a lot of reports from players (regular players here, who never have trouble) saying they missed out on getting the last prize (or even the second to last prize) or it was really tight for them. It’s more than we usually see after an event. In fact I don’t know that I’ve see this many complaints since 2014.
Sure, we always have a few complaints here and there, but usually they’re from players who didn’t log in frequently (and we all know events take multiple log ins every 4hrs to complete). This time I’m seeing complaints from players who logged in every 4hrs, 4-5 times/day, did as they were supposed to and still fell short, or nearly fell short. Complaints from players who never have issues during events, yet with this particular event…they struggled.
Personally, Act 1 was like any other event for me. I didn’t even log in regularly some times and still managed to finish before the weekend. So I’m a little perplexed that so many of you struggled. Sure, I have a bunch of premium characters, but I skipped neighbor visits (sorry neighbors, I just ran out of time each day) and often only logged in 3 times/day sometimes only 1 or 2. So I’m seriously scratching my head over how so many of you (who regularly have no issues) struggled.
So I want to take a minute to see exactly what happened. What went wrong. Was it you. Or was it the game. So if you fell short, or nearly fell short, please take a minute to answer the questions below in the comment section, so that we can all take a look and see what happened, and determine if we can offer any advice so you don’t fall short on Act 2.
Here we go…
-How many characters did you have at the HQ?
-Any of those characters Premium? Any of them super premium?
-How often did you log into TSTO to clear your town? How many times/day?
-Did you complete the Act 1 main questline?
-Did you visit your neighbors? Every day? How many did you visit?
-Did you complete the Dossier Tasks each day to earn the extra 1,000 intel/day?
-Did you get any Daily Challenges for Intel? Did you skip other challenges (hitting the x) to earn Intel or Schematics?
-Did you play the Drone Scan game every 4hrs? What was your average score like?
-Did you start the event late?
-At any point were you ahead of the Calendar? Or were you always behind?
-Did you unlock all of the prizes? Last minute? Missed out? (which ones did you miss?)
Appreciate y’all taking a minute to answer the questions!
Your mission this morning, should you choose to accept it, is to enter the realm of Secret Agents Act 2. Where we’ll continue to tap those conspicuous Men in Tan, battle agents in the Drone Scan, proceed with those dossiers and unlock a whole new set of prizes!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Hank, Krusty, Skinner & Homer will start this for you with dialogue. This will be followed by a 4hr task for Homer.
