Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well, it’s that time in Springfield…time for Act 2 to hit our games. It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Itchy and Scratchy Act 2…so have at it my friends!
And YES, the server is currently down. When will EA learn to just go back to the 4am (ET) start times….
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Itchy kicks things off in Springfield, and you’ll have tasks for Itchy, Diane (if you unlocked her) and Springfielders..
Act 2 Runs until June 27th (when Act 3 will start)
New Prize Currency for Act 2
So the ability to earn Knives is now gone. Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Axes. So get cracking on those Axes
You’ll earn Foam Axes very similar to how you earned knives during Act 1….
Act 2 Personal Prizes
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 remains, as it was during Act 1, for Act 2.
HOWEVER, Act 2 items have now unlocked for your purchase….provided you’ve reached level 5 and unlocked the log ride from the prize track. For level requirements check out the Act 1 crafting post
Guys there seems to be a lot of confusion about this…Craftables WILL NOT unlock until you’ve unlocked the Log Ride from the prize track…just like the crafting box says….
For a reminder of what was in the Act 1 crafting check out the Act 1 crafting post
You earn crafting currency from tapping Park Visitors, sending characters to staff rides AND clearing Park Visitors in friends towns.
Yes, the area around your I&S Gate is still active for the Amusement Bonus. Only now the bonus % has increased to 35%. So 15% more from Act 1 to max it out.
New Items in the Store..
A couple of items that hit earlier this week….
Squeaky Voiced Attendant and Soarin’ Over Springfield- 100 Donuts. This is a SKIN for SVT, not a new character. I’ll have a SIB post on this up likely tomorrow. If you’ve purchased this already and can’t find SVT, check your inventory. He was stored there after the K-Land nuke.
Maw Spuckler- Available IF you purchase donuts for cash. Buy 300 donuts get Maw with that bundle. 300 donuts is $19.99 in the US (it’ll cost more in other countries because of Taxes from Google, iOS and Amazon. EA only collects $19.99). I’ll have a breakdown of this up in the next couple of days, but she’ll be available until the event ends (July 11th), so no rush.
New Stuff today…
More stuff coming in the next few days…
Also, next week the game will celebrate pride with a few additions to the game. (new and returning) That will last about a week and we’ll cover the details when it hits.
And for those asking about the Presidents, if/when they’re coming back….they usually appear around the 4th of July and, well, the 4th of July isn’t until…July 4th. So look for those guys to appear, if they make a reappearance (which I wouldn’t doubt because they’ve appeared every year since 2013…), around then or at least the last week of June. i.e. when Act 3 hits.
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
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!
