Christmas 2017 101: Boss Fights!

Cheers Christmas Computing Companions,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “C”)

 

Christmas has invaded Springfield and when you think of Christmas, the first thing that should pop into your mind is kicking alien butts. Fortunately Tapped Out has you covered this Act with the introduction of Boss Fights!

Once you’ve completed “Balderdashing All the Way Pt. 5“, you will then enter Boss Fights.

Boss Fights are 7 rounds of tasks, similar to those we’ve seen in Mini-Events over the past year. In each of the 7 rounds, you’ll be tasked with completing different tasks. And all towards the end goal of unlocking Santa Claus, aka jolly old Saint Nick, aka St. Nicholas, aka Sinter Klass, aka Christkind, aka Kris Kringle, aka Father Christmas, aka Pere Noel, aka Babouschka, aka Alissa’s Happiness.

 

So what are the tasks needed to complete this event?

What are your thoughts on this element of the event? Enjoying it so far? Have you completed any Boss Fights yet? Have you won Santa Claus yet? Thoughts on the Christmas Event in general? What are you most looking forward with this event?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

CRANKY’S NOTES…
Please understand that not everyone gets to fight the aliens, just because they are unlocked. Each has their own tasks, and many are not unlocked until further down in the storyline. It IS a story…it unravels over time. So, unlike previous “battle updates” not everyone who could fight, will fight in each round. OK?  Chillax…let the story unfold…have fun!

  1. Apologies for the necromancy but it’s been bugging me for a while now – what does the B.S. stand for in B.S. league? My 2017 Christmas area is next door to the area I’m using for this current event so it’s kind of in my face 😊

  2. I took a screenshot of a message I saw on the 3rd which said, “As a reward for playing, you can continue to send Springfielders on Boss Battle Jobs and choose whether it is intact or destroyed!”

    Except I don’t see any way of sending characters on battle jobs any more…

  3. I wish we could still battle after the tasks are finished? Those animations were so fun and I’d love to be able to continue sending the BS league on those jobs during the rest of the event- maybe to collect bonus tomes .

  4. Once the ship is crashed, will we be able to switch back to an “uncrashed” view of it? And maybe do battle again? I have a daily task of doing battle with the BS League, but it ended, and crashed before I could finish and collect the daily task. I’d love to be able to finish my daily task.

  8. Ralph is also a premium character that can battle the aliens. I’m disappointed that he doesn’t get an animatation for his battle though. It probably would’ve been pretty funny.

  9. The flying saucer uses an Elf Cannon! It shoots out the elves from my very favorite Christmas event (2014)! Okay, they’re not in mason jars, but I’m still thrilled!

  13. I bought Krustofski (100 sprinkles, such a deal!), but on this first battle, he’s not showing as part of the BS league (at least, I can’t choose him to fight). Do I have to run him through his personal questline first?

  14. Warning **** I started the Boss fight, added my characters, then went to re-gifting machine. While playing it took me to the fight (saucer). Of course I lost. But you still get credit for using the re-gifting machine. Moral: wait til you see the spaceship in action before going to the re-gifting machine.

  18. Forgive me for being annoying, but Russian Santa is not “babushka”. His name is GrandPa Frost or Ded Moroz. Babushka means very literarily, granny (grandmother). Otherwise great post, thank you!!!

    • Actually, I spent 40 donuts on gift wrap for the gun. 6 completed runs at the re-gifting gun netted me an extra 450 tomes (75 per run), so I was able to speed up Hibbart without spending 120 donuts to speed him up directly. Not necessary, I know, but the donuts were just sitting there begging to be used…😜

  24. Kwanza Hibert and Homer just completed the first 4 hour Task of The Kwanza task (I like to complete the Part 1’s just to secure a new Quest Line)
    Kwanza is now completing Part 5 of Balderdash. Looking forward to the animations. Be nice if the animations remain (earning $ and XP) after this Event ends.

    I can’t progress further than the first one until I win the skin for Dr Hibbert but that’s okay … plenty of time. 🖒

  27. The animation with Elf Bart fighting the aliens is hilarious…he shoots a candy cane gun and then dons a pair of shades and switches to a gattling gun that feeds in a string of ornaments…pow, pow, pow! Jesus using his halo as an exploding frisbee is also great animation. Haven’t added everybody to the fight yet, but if these two are any indication, this part of the event is going to be fun👍😎.

  30. I have not started the boss fights yet because I am working on part 5 of the questline. I hope the boss fights are more shorter to complete than the fights were with Montymort during Halloween since I missed out on getting Montymort as a character but I don’t want to miss out on getting Santa.
