Note: no open thread this week because of Act 3 hitting today. Feel free to use this post as this week’s open thread.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Rev those engines Tappers because Hell on Wheels has arrived! Which car will be the king of the derby? Well, it’s up to you to find out in TSTO’s latest update…Hell on Wheels!
As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on May 18th. However, Act 4 will start on May 10th (note the Tuesday start date)
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Krusty, Homer, and Cletus…
Homer: Everyone is just staring at me with their I’ve-seen-your-credit-report eyes. I better get out of here. Maybe Krusty will give me a lift home.
Krusty: Sorry, Homer, I’m going to the V.I.P. lounge, so I hope you don’t mind if I ditch you. Actually, it doesn’t matter if you mind, ’cause that’s what I’m doing.
Homer: How am I gonna get home now? I don’t wanna call Marge, and I don’t think Youber drivers accept centavos.
Cletus: Howdy, stranger! You look like you could use a ride.
Homer: Thanks. I’ll just, uh, slide these chicken cages over…
Homer: Whoa! What’s that about?
Cletus: Chickens ride in front, hitchhikers ride in back. In this here truck, that’s the pecking order.
Cletus: If y’all are gonna use five-dollar words, you can find another ride.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, The Internet of Wheels and is followed by 4hr tasks for Cletus and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115). The Internet of Wheels 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:
A forlorn Homer makes his way home when he happens to wander past the CarGo company
headquarters, where their new talking smart car strikes up a conversation with a very confused Homer. When Homer can’t figure out how to scan a QR code to open the car’s doors to take it for a test ride, the company’s young co-CEOs, Antoine and Zora, come down and decide that Homer is the ideal everyman for their new promotion, and they give him the car! Homer is thrilled to receive a new car for free, and he enlists its help in lying to his family about why he couldn’t call them to tell them he was going to be home so late.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into The Internet of Wheels 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…
DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
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 2:
Kliff (New Premium)
Vaclav (New Premium)
Antonie and Zora (New Premium)
Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency. From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event.
Remember: If you want to know what’s coming in future Acts (Act 4) you can check out our Spoiler YouTube Video on the event here. Loads of images and details.
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 May 18th to finish those…
Here’s what’s included today…
Antonie and Zora & CarGo (Building & Character)– 150 (This is a 2 for 1 character deal. They are two people but act (and earn) as 1. Like Sherri and Terri, Patches and Poor Violet, the Robot Rumble Announcers…etc)
All other returning content, that arrived during Act 1 remains until the event ends. (including the Mystery Box )
Gil is back!
Gil’s back for Act 3 with a Car “deal”…
