Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
A new element added to our games for Bart Royale is a Defensive Bonus. Simply explained, it’s an extra bonus of Prize Track currency awarded at the Playscape when you place items (that award a Defensive Bonus) in the “zone” around the Playscape.
So basically, it’s a simple way to earn even more prize track currency at the Playscape.
Let’s take a look at how items from Act 1 impact the Defensive Bonus because Spoiler it will change for Acts 2 and 3 as more items will be added to the craftables (and more bases are added).
So let’s start with the basic…
What Is the Defensive Bonus Area?
For Act 1, it’s a 3 square deep area around the Playscape, where you can place items that award a Bonus to increase your Prize Track currency payouts.
Anything in the blueish-greenish area is your Defensive Bonus Area.
How Do I get a Defensive Bonus?
Simply place an item that awards a Defensive Bonus in that blueish-greenish area around the playscape to earn the bonus.
The nice thing is the item doesn’t have to be completely in the area to get the bonus. Just a small part needs to be touching.
And you can tell if you’re being awarded the bonus because it will tell you if you’re getting a bonus based on placement….
So What Items Award a Defensive Bonus?
For Act 1 the list is…
And that’s it for Act 1.
Remember MORE items will be added for Acts 2 and 3. We’ll cover those when they get here.
So What’s the Best Item to Place?
You have to look at the currency to bonus % ratio. Both the Trenches and the Playscape Lookout have the same (and best) ratio of the freemium items. (.005% for 1 spent), so those are your two best items.
Based on size, I’d say you’re better off with trenches because they’ll take up the smallest footprint around the Playscape.
What’s the Max Defensive Bonus For Act 1?
Right now it’s 20%. Once your Defensive Bonus is 20% around the Playscape you can’t increase it.
Oh and for those asking…I have no idea why it ends in the random 1 number, like this:
Just one of those weird TSTO mysteries….
And that’s it my friends! The simple breakdown for the Defensive Bonus during Act 1.
