Community Prize numbers have once again been adjusted! So everyone can stop panicking now! As many seasoned players suspected (and we’ve all tried to tell those that were panicking..) EA has made adjustments to the Community Prize goals, and now they are completely obtainable (and quickly too!)
Springfield Arms now requires 12,917,280 so we should be unlocking it very soon!
still cost 40 Amateur Bucks…and you should be unlocking 5 as part of today’s Daily Training. So keep sending those balls!
Update: It looks like the rest of the prizes have been adjusted as well…with the highest prize now costing just over 25,000,000 . So keep sending and we’ll get them all soon!
Act 2 of Tap Ball launched last week and with it we saw the return of Community Prizes!
Initially launched in October 2013, Community Prizes was another aspect of events designed to get the Tapped Out Community to work together for a goal, in each case the goal was a group of prizes. They were short lived though, as we only saw them for Halloween 2013 and Christmas 2013 (You can check out details from Halloween here and details from Christmas here). After that EA tried a bunch of different methods to engage people in the games, but there were always cries for Community Prizes to return. So now those long time Tappers have their wish and they’re back!
Of course being that they were only around for the last two major events in 2013, I know many of today’s Tappers have no clue what they are, how they work, or what the heck is going on. I also know that the numbers can seem overwhelming, they always have. So let’s break down the ins and outs of Community Prizes and how exactly they work for this event….
Today is America’s Birthday! Being that Bunny, Wookiee and I are all located in the US we’re taking the day to spend time with our families and friends to celebrate the day America announced it’s Independence. So we really won’t be around much today, as we’re taking a much needed day to recover, relax and celebrate with our families!
Remember you can check out all of the Coverage so far on Tap Ball here and all of our coverage on the 4th of July Event Here. Most of your questions should be addressed in one of those posts.
Hope you all have an amazing 4th and an even better weekend ahead! Do you have any plans for today? How about this weekend? Sound off in the comments below you know we love hearing from you!

P.P.S I’m thoroughly going to enjoy a day “off” today…but I know A LOT of you have questions about Community prizes. While I’m going to write a post on it…next week, NOT today..I figured let me give you a little bit of info to ease some of your minds..
-Yes, you have to buy a Soccer Ball for 500 Bucks to advance the questline for Act 2. If you don’t finish the Act 2 questline, you can’t start the Act 3 questline once it starts. So just spend the 500 Bucks when you can…or as they say in baseball “suck it up and take one for the team”.
-Yes, you will see the balls rolling around in your town if someone leaves you one. They’re hard to see and can often hide behind buildings etc. If you see one and tap on it i’ll say “Ball Collect”. Nothing else happens, just that.
-No, you will not see any kind of in game popup about balls being in your town.
-No you cannot “play catch” literally with your neighbors. You can’t throw balls back and forth. Once you put one in a neighbors town..that’s it.
-Relax about the Community Prizes. It’s only a day or so into it. It’ll take some time for them to build up. Don’t be Doom and Gloom about it right now…it’s barely into the start of them. Don’t start thinking “it’s not possible” until it’s been several days, please. For the sanity of the moderators of this site….
-If you’ve never done community prizes before…relax. They’re fun. As long as the goals are met by the Tappers World Wide (yes it’s everybody that plays TSTO world wide, not just your own neighbors) you’ll get every single prize. So just relax, have fun and play.
-And finally…yes, participate. Buy some balls and put them in your neighbors town. You don’t have to do it a ton, but every once in a while is nice. It helps everyone out to get those prizes.
