Springfield Jobs Act 2 is Live!

Note: Yes, the servers are currently down. Not unexpected because it’s a later in the day update, more tappers are awake and wanting to play than when they hit at 4am ET.  I’m posting the rundown now, but I personally haven’t been able to 100% verify everything (I got kicked out too) so if I need to make changes I will once the server is back up.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Friday Friends!  Time to gear up for the weekend….with a brand new Act of the Springfield Job!  Act 2 has arrived, so have at it my friends….

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Your heisters kick things off with a 4hr task to, what else, heist!

Act 2 Runs until April 23rd (when Act 3 will start)

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…

New Prize Currency for Act 2 

 Crown Jewels

So the ability to earn Pictures is now gone.  Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Jewels.  So get cracking on those Crown Jewels…

You’ll earn Crown Jewels very similar to how you earned Pictures during Act 1….

-Clearing the Agent Tappables (earn 10 /tap)
– Clearing Agents in your Neighbor’s towns (earns 5 /tap)
-Daily Challenges
-Sending Heisters to Heist ( earning varies)


Act 2 Personal Prizes

Tower of Springfield- 120

Free Land Token- 4,420

Life-Size Prince Albert in a Can- 10,820

350 Plunders- 17,220

Queen’s Carriage-23,620 

The Boiled Potato- 30,020

MoHo House w/ Nigel- 42,920 


Act 1 Prizes…

If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT  1” 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

Crafting remains, as it was during Act 1, for Act 2.

HOWEVER, Act 2 items have now unlocked for your purchase….

Phone Booth– 200

Police Call Box– 200

Queen’s Guard– 200

Beefeater– 200

Darby O’Guzzlin’s– 500

British Roundabout– 500

St. Pauls Cathedral– 1,000

Free Land Token– 300 (can only craft once)

Remember….

You earn crafting currency from tapping Agents, completing heists AND sending Crooks to friends towns.  So send those crooks! Masks still work…


New Heist Location

The Tower Of Springfield, the first Act 2 prize, is the new Heisting location for Act 2.  You can still earn Crown Jewels (in fact you’ll need to) at the Museum…

Just like the museum, you’ll want to build up your Heist Bonus around the Tower to increase your prize currency payouts.


New Heist Scene

Looks like you’ll need….

Phone Booth– 200

Police Call Box– 200

Queen’s Guard– 200

Tower of Springfield- 120

Queen’s Carriage-23,620 

To complete the heist scene


New Items in the Store..

  Buckingham Palace- 60 Donuts

 Westminster Abbey & Ghosts of Oscar Wilde & Geoffrey Chaucer- 175 Donuts

That’s all that was added today.  But as we’ve seen through events, more stuff will be added on a daily basis.  


And before you ask…

Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…

-Act 2 Calendar
-Act 2 walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
-And more!

So be patient, the info you need will be up soon. 🙂


And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of Act 2!

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.

Thoughts on Act 2?  Just like you pictured it?  Excited about these prizes?  How’d you do with your Act 1 prizes?  Will you be buying any of the new premium items? Sound off in the comments below.  You know we love hearing from you!

  1. Not sure where the best place to post this. I have noticed that even though it says No Jobs Available, if you hit start sometimes it will show jobs available with some of the premium characters, including Jack the Ripper and Fortune.

  2. I finished Act 1 but my Act 2 crafting items are locked. Why is this?

  3. There is actually a bug with Act 2 content. I finished Act 1 quest well before Act 2 went live. I can do the Act 2 quest and was able to craft several items but it seems after i finished part 1 of Act 2 quest line, all Act 2 craftable items are locked

  4. Do we have to complete Act 1 to be able to unlock Act 2?

    It’s very frustrating and means that you can’t craft the items in act 2, grrrr

  5. I had an issue with act 1 where I couldn’t get the fine arts museum and still haven’t got it, so I missed out on getting the last 2 prizes in act 1. I got the tower of Springfield in Act 2, but the phone booth and other prizes are still locked. Is this going to be another Glitch?? I seriously hope not.

  6. Act looks good. Only 1 free character, but I can handle that if it’s easier than the final Act 1 character.
    Westminster Abbey shows 2 ghosts, does it come with 2 full characters, one character like Sherri and Terri, something else entirely.

      Chaucer and Wilde are separate characters with their own set of tasks. They both help with the event. Oscar Wilde IS voiced (Chaucer is not).

  7. Looks like I severely overestimated the amount of space Id need to put all the stuff from this act. A lot seems premium which I’m not sure I want to shell out the donuts for.

  10. Going on 2pm here in EST and still no act 2 quest or craftibles…I placed the new fort and can collect jewels or whatever but the only quest I have is “Springfield job part 6” where I left off because I didn’t care about Act 1.

    • Well that’s your problem. You can’t move onto Act 2 questline unless you complete the Act 1 questline. It’s been that way in the game forever…

      • Has it? I seem to remember not finishing plenty of “act 1” and “act 2” phases, and having no problem immediately starting the next one when it hit servers.

        • Questline must always be completed to start the next act questline. Your prize track will change over whether you do the next round of prizes or not, but the questline will not trigger.

          The prize track and currency changes are on a timer, so they automatically change. For the questline there’s a timer but also a requirement task that must be completed before it will trigger. In this case that required task is the end of the Act 1 questline.

          • Okay, I figured it out…I had started part 6 of the first act’s quest, but not finished it…I just now logged in, placed the gondola and building to finish part 6, and the act 2 quest immediately started…so I’m good now and can craft and quest as intended

  11. Thanks. Don’t forget you can move items (like Cheese Truck) to get your full bonus (20%).

  12. One nice thing about the early Act 2 problems… the constant crashing resulted in me getting Buckingham and Abbey without a debit to my donuts.

  13. A lot of the buildings being offered for this event are enormous. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to make space for the new content. I feel like I need to rearrange my town to make room, but there’s not a lot of room to play with. I bought all of the land that was for sale a while ago, and I’ve been crafting and using the free land tokens as soon as I can get them. I suppose there are larger concerns in life, but this is getting frustrating none-the-less.

    • I have the same problem. But i mentioned in the wrong post. The new buildings are huge, and if you want to design you need free land, if possible together. I will have to move a lot of things. We must pray they never have the Reighstag as price or for sale. That would couse a real prob

    Just going to say the ghosts are an amazing deal and so much better then the 300 donuts for the mafia guys. And wth the ghosts you also get a building. Can someone please explain ea’s logic to me? 😂

  15. I set an alarm for 6:45 a.m. so I could clear one last round of heisters to get Nana Sophie (I haven’t been religiously tapping so I was about 300 shy), and sure enough, I hit off instead of snooze and woke up a half hour after the act rollover. Oh well, it only cost me 5 donuts and I got a little jump start on Act 2.

  16. I am not getting any crown jewels for clearing agents in my neighbors town – I was having this issue with the pictures too – I only would get pictures like half the time?! Anyone else with this issue??
