Let’s just get the whining out of the way… Let’s all scream altogether now.
“THE ROBO-FUNZOS ARE NOT FUN!!!! THIS IS TOO HARD!!!”
There…feel better now? No?
Well, yes, the little buggers are hard to see on white backgrounds…but, let’s remember how many of you wanted these updates to be harder, and not just a mind-numbing grind. Right?
Well…there is a lot going on, with a wide variety of ways to GET IT ALL…and the math is a little less friendly than in the past. But, it is doable…
Let’s break down the Math…
The primary thing we are after in regards to “Getting The GOOD Stuff” from the Prize Track, are the batteries. You need them to earn the main prizes from the prize track...and as the Calendar points out, you need 1,265 batteries a day to stay on track to get the Mrs. Kodos Claus bundle.
The Most Important Currency for Act 1….
Alissa has reported, “It looks like they spawn 1/18 minutes. Max of 20 in Springfield, bank of 60.”(I have confirmed this with regular activity).
However, if you do the basic math…at one every 18 minutes, you are only going to see 80 per day, in a 24 hour cycle. So, the 60 battery bank becomes moot, if you are logging on regularly. But, as each RF gives you 12 batteries, you should be able to earn between 800 and 960 batteries per day, just by tapping RF in your town.
MATH TIP: You can still log in every 4 hours, but just know that you will only have 13 or 14 RFs to find. EAsy…do that 4-5 times a day (event with 8 hours of sleep), and you are golden.
Here is my payout for a Day’s Worth of RF zapping…
- 6 AM- 26 cleared (bank from overnight)
- 10A – 14 cleared
- 2P- 14 cleared
- 6p – 14 cleared
- 10p- 13 cleared
81 total @ 12 per = 972 RF neutralized and collected.
So…where do the other 300-400 batteries come from?
You can also earn them by playing the “Re-Gifting Game.”
ReGifting Game Tip:
Clearing all of the RF when you play the game is even easier than the old Surveilence Post/Drone Scan game. All you really have to do when the countdown goes from 3 to zero, is lay your padular device on the table, or your knee, or a bathroom counter if you are doing this during “break time” at work, and tap like crazy all around the Simpson House. Just tap anything that moves…As the old marine saying goes, “We shoot ’em, we’ll let EA count the bodies” or something like that.
You should be able to acquire and play at least three times a day, maybe more. Do NOT buy wrapping paper…you DON’T need it! You’ll collect enough each day to play a few rounds, by just Tapping RFs. So- 2-3 rounds will net you another 150-225 batteries. EAsy…just don’t drop your padular device in the sink or toilet!
And another “DON’T BOTHER” (especially if you are already bummed by finding RFs in your own town)…Finding and Tapping RFs in your Neighbor’s Town is a complete waste of time. You can only do 30 actions (RFs) per day…and they only count for ONE Battery each. There is no “EAsy finder,” so you are stuck looking for little gray blobs on a white, snowy background. Not worth the time…at all.
JUST HAVE FUN!! I will say this again…this update is going to get even better in Act II…so hang in there. Log in every 4 hours…clear what you can…play the game if you can…and keep on RFin’!
