Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
“Yo! Hey, what’s happening dude? I’m the guy with the rep for being rude. Terrorizing people wherever I go, It’s not intentional just keepin’ the flow.”
Come on guys, let’s all Do the Bartman! (not to be confused with Steve Bartman, who’s now the proud owner of a Cubbies WS ring. Mr. Bartman, if by chance you read this site, I never thought you cursed them. They just played like C-R-A-P)
Gooooood mooooorning Tappers! Welcome to the wee early morning hours, who’s ready to get their hip hop on? Grab those hoodies & practice your Mic Drops, because it’s time for Homerpalooza to go Hip Hop, as Act 3 is arrives into our Springfields this morning…
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Lisa will start this for you with dialogue. This will be followed by needing to keep your Rock and Pop characters jamming because you’re going to need that prize track currency.
Act 3 “Hip Hop” Runs until September 12th
Note: the whole event ends Sept. 12th
Just what does Act 3 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
New Prize Currency for Act 3
So the ability to earn Sunglasses is now gone. Your counter prize track for Act 3 has reset to zero because you have zero Bling. So forget about those shades…time to get a little bling bling, and collect that bling!
You’ll earn Bling very similar to how you earned Sunglasses (and cuffs during Act 1) during Act 2….
-Clearing the fan tappables (they now earn 30 /tap)
– Clearing fans in your Neighbor’s towns (now earns 15/tap)
-Dropping Lawyers in Neighbor’s towns, or clearing Lawyers they dropped in your town
-Weird Al Prize track
You’ll also earn Bling from the questline…don’t ignore the questline. You earn a ton of Event currency from it, it’s important for your prize track total..
New Details About Fans (Tappables) in Act 3
This is an increase from Act 2. (and Act 1, so don’t get discouraged by the prize totals)
Weird Al Prize track is still there, this time you can earn Extra Bling and Crafting Currency. The final prize unlocks the ability for Weird Al to play on the hip hop stage. Otherwise same rules apply…
Hip Hop Track unlocks with main questline (at least it did for me in my B game)
Update: Ok, some of you are confused or just impatient with this and want more clarification.. once you’ve COMPLETED Pt. 1 of the main questline (Straight Outta Dumbton) you’ll see the Weird Al Tasks popup.
Everyone got it? Good.
Act 3 Personal Prizes
Also, these numbers are LOWER than what was initially proposed for Act 3…
Act 2 Prizes…
If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT 2” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)
Crafting remains, as it was during Acts 1 and 2, for Act 3.
Ticket Crafting Currency is earned via the prize track, Weird Al Prizes, Tappables, Lawyers, Praiseland (if you purchased it) & Flaming Moe’s (if you purchased it)
You’ll once again be able to earn Bonuts (Bonus Donuts) during the questline, instead of when you finish the prize track. Similar to how it worked in Acts 1 and 2. Should unlock once you’ve finished the Act 3 questline.
New Items in the Store…
And before you ask…
Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…
-Act 3 Calendar
-Act 3 walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
So be patient, the info you need will be up soon. 🙂
And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of Act 3!
Remember this is just a quick rundown…as we have time to play through the Act ourselves we’ll break everything down in more detail. If you need help with the basics check out the Homerpalooza Event Page in the meantime.
