Note: No separate open thread this week due to Act 3 starting up. Feel free to use this post as your Open Thread..
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Lights! Camera! Actions! Krusty’s making a Sands of Space squeal, but will his movie survive the studio’s crazy crossover? Only time..and 5 weeks of tapping will tell!
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 September 14th. However, Act 4 will start on September 6th (note the Tuesday start date)
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Krusty and the Polystar Exec…
Krusty: What the heck are all these superheroes doing in my movie?!
Polystar Executive: Trust me, you won’t even notice they’re on set.
Airshot: For this next scene, do I take out the bad guys with my missile launcher or my machine gun?
Krusty: I’m NOTICING!
Polystar Executive: Look, Krusty, you still have full control over your project, but we retain the right to retcon crossovers.
Krusty: Ugh, how did I not see this in my contract?!
Polystar Executive: You never read your contract.
Krusty: Right. That’s how.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, Crossover Chaos and is followed by 4hr tasks for Krusty and the Polystar Exec, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115). Crossover Chaos 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:
The Polystar executive takes immediate action and begins retconning crossovers from Polystar’s other IP’s into “The Sands of Space”, namely all the characters from The Vindicators, including Chinnos. This significantly inflates the budget and makes everyone at Polystar comfortable again since over-budget movies are the only ones they know how to handle.
Krusty is furious but the Polystar executive explains that the fine print in his contract gives Polystar full control over crossovers, so Krusty has no choice but to include these new superheroes in his film. The results are a trainwreck, and the new superheroes are so difficult to work with that Krusty can no longer take his lazy approach to directing. He then has no choice but to call on the only person he’s ever worked with in showbiz that wasn’t completely lazy, Sideshow Bob.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the Crossover Chaos 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:
Sands of Space Costume Rack (Decoration)- Crossover Chaos Pt. 1 and 115
Sands of Space Battle Car (Decoration)- Crossover Chaos Pt. 2 and 115
Mystery Box Token-Crossover Chaos Pt. 3 and 145
Sands of Space Spaceship (Decoration)- Crossover Chaos Pt. 4 and 145
Magnesium Man (Character)- Crossover Chaos Pt. 5 and 185
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 3:
Polystar Executive (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. So Act 1 will be used in Act 2, 3, and 4…etc.
Remember: If you want to know what’s coming in future Acts (Acts 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 September 14th to finish those…
Here’s what’s included today…
