Note: Sorry guys, I was running around this morning and quickly put this up without logging into my game. That’ll teach me to post without checking in-game. Always do it, and the one time I don’t it bites me in the butt. Anyway, Gil is back in Springfield as well…
I’ll have a breakdown post on this in the coming days. But do note that Secretary Van Houten does NOT earn event currency. And Marine One earns 4.25% bonus on cash and XP.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Happy Sunday! Feel free to consider this your Open Thread.
Who’s ready for more Van Houten fun? Act 3 of the Van Houtens has arrived!
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on September 16th. However, Act 4 will start on September 8th (note the Tuesday start date).
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary and Milhouse…
Lewis Clark: Hi, Milhouse. Can I come to your birthday party this weekend?
Milhouse: Sherri and Terri got the last two spaces.
Lewis Clark: But they’re in line behind me.
Milhouse: They made their reservation using the Milhouse Birthday Attendance App.
Lewis Clark: Then why are they in line?
Sherri and Terri: Suspenders and a belt, fellah. Can’t take any chances on getting shut out.
Bart: Milhouse, didn’t you just have a birthday party? And why are you standing behind a maître d’s podium?
Milhouse: Pfft. That birthday party was pre-Annika. I’ve got so many requests to hang out now, I’ve had to schedule multiple birthday party “reenactments” through the end of the month. Lewis, would you take the late seating two weeks from Friday?
Lewis Clark: I guess I’ll have to.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, The Most Popular Girl in School, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Bart and Milhouse, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (105). The Most Popular Girl In School is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…
Here’s the Act 3 Synopsis from EA:
At this point, Milhouse has become so popular that everyone wants a piece of him, so much so that he
now has birthday parties every week because not everyone can fit into a single party. When Lisa
confides in Bart that she is having trouble with the situation, Bart gets the idea to have Milhouse ask Lisa out, in the hopes that if Milhouse is seen dating a nerd then he’ll no longer be popular. With some
persuasion from Bart (again), Milhouse agrees to ask Lisa out, who accepts. However, this backfires yet
again, and instead of Milhouse becoming uncool, Lisa dating Milhouse makes her the most popular girl in school.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into The Most Popular Girl In School questline, which is what the Act 3 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 3 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 3…
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 3:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 3:
Kirkedemious Van Houten (Premium)
Milford Van Houten (Premium)
Act 1/Act 2 Prizes
These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track. You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes. So keep going with the earlier Acts if you haven’t yet finished it. You have until September 16th to finish those…
Here’s what’s included today:
And that’s it my friends. The details of Act 3 of the Van Houtens Event!
