Rise of the Robots Act 4 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I’m not really a Star Wars person…but May the 4th be with you my friends…

Who’s ready for the final robot showdown?! Can Springfield be saved from the Robots?! It’s time for the exciting conclusion of the Rise of the Robots Event…Act 4!  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 is the FINAL Act of this event.  So you’ll have to finish this, and any other act you didn’t finish, before the event ends on May 12th (Wednesday).  

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Lisa, Bart, and Frink…

Lisa: Professor Frink! Thank goodness you haven’t been enslaved!
Bart: We need your help!
Frink: You should have thought of that when you shunned me in the past!
Lisa: I didn’t shun you. I idolized you!
Bart: I shunned you, but I’m a kid. It was weird for you to want to join our Radioactive Man Club.
Frink: As decades of sloppy lab procedures have made me a very radioactive man, I thought it was highly appropriate.
Bart: The robot you built is enslaving humanity — you owe us a solution.
Frink: Well, it is every scientist’s dream to solve the problems his work creates. Hold on while I calculate the odds of success… Omega times alpha, carry the one, plus/minus your-guess-is-as-good-as-mine…

This triggers the Act 4 questline, Welcome to the Cyberdome, and is followed by a 4hr task for Lisa, Bart, Frink Jr, Frink and Mrs. Frink (if you have them), as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (155).  Welcome to the Cyberdome 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 4…

Marge
Bart
Lisa
Ned
Skinner
Wiggum
Frink
Robot Rumble Announcers (New Premium)

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Brockman, Marge, Homer, and Smashius…

Brockman: In a turn of events that surprised absolutely no one, Smashius Clay and his small robot army have begun to conquer and enslave Springfield’s human population. Join us after the break when I will reveal my feelings about our new robot overlords.
Marge: Homer, this is terrible!
Homer: Are you kidding? The robots canceled all “organized human activities”, including work! WOOHOO! Hashtag Team Robot!
Smashius Clay: Come, Homer Simpson! You are our slave now, and we’ll be putting you to work in pointless menial labor for our amusement!
Homer: Aw! What’d I do to deserve this?
Smashius Clay: Our friend the bear robot says you were “very handsy”.
Homer: But…he’s so furry! I couldn’t keep them to myself..

This triggers the Act 3  questline, Who’s the Bot, and is followed by a 4hr task for Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115).  Who’s the Bot is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
