Addicts Question Corner: More Act 3 Clarifications

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So it seems that many, many, MANY of you are still freaking out in the comments about Act 3.   I know it can be frustrating, but honestly y’all need to calm down.  It’s just a game and when you stop over thinking things, it all works out.

This is not a game made for Rocket Scientists.  You don’t need a PhD to play it…this is a game for Ralph.  And when you think like Ralph nothing is “unpossable” when it comes to TSTO.  So the biggest thing is R-E-L-A-X.  Take a deep breath.  And bring it back to the simple things.  Remember…it’s a game about tapping.  At it’s very basic level all you do is tap.

Yes, I know it’s extremely frustrating when things don’t work as they should and bugs/glitches happen.  It’s REALLY annoying.  But it’s not worth having a coronary over.  If the game is stressing you out/ticking you off that much…walk away.  Take some time away from the game and come back when you’re destressed.

I’m not trying to fill your head with sugar plums and sweet nothings about the game…I know it flawed.  There are LOADS of glitches/bugs with this Event.  They’ve been happening all event long, I’m just trying to prevent you guys from freaking out over every little thing.  It’s just a game.  So relax please.

That being said…let’s go over some more clarifications to common questions we’re seeing in the comments.  Hopefully this will help destress y’all….

Covered below are your common questions about earning Candy Apples (how to get so many), Nightmares, Skeletons not spawning and more….

Easter Event 3 Weeks In….What Have YOU Won?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So we’re 3 weeks in from the start of the bunny invasion, with 1 more week to go…we’re in the home stretch!  Now that everyone is busy tapping and zapping I want to know…what have YOU won so far?  It was great having everyone share their results after week 1  and week 2 that we thought we’d check in with everyone and see how their doing after week 3!

Here’s where I currently am in my A town after 3 weeks of bunny catching:

Note: In my A town I’m playing as freemium as I can get with this event.  I have not purchased a single Egg.  The only purchase I’ve made at this point was for the MKII and that’s been more a test to see if I experience the same glitch a few of you are mentioning (where it gives you your dominant color instead of your non-dominant color).  Beyond that not 1 item has been purchased.  All baskets have been won and all Eggs have been tapped or zapped.  I am growing carrots and using Witch Marge…so I earn about 10-13 eggs/2 hrs with that (when I remember to go in and tap it!).  Also…I am NOT maxed out on friends.  I currently have 75 neighbors.

I’m Team Pink in my A game…
Pink Boxes: Fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, fence, tree, 100 gold eggs, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Chirpy and Bart Jr, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Blocko Store Completed this in week 1.  STOPPED PLAYING PINK BOX.  (converting all pink eggs to blue)

Blue Boxes: 300 Gold, pond, Fence, 300 Gold, egg pile, 300 gold, Pond, (end week 1) Fence, 300 Gold, Fence, 300 Gold, Pond, 300 Gold, Egg Council Guy (end week 2) Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond, Fence, 300 Gold Eggs, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond Fence, 300 Gold, Fence, 300 Gold, Pond, 300 Gold, 250 Pink, Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond. Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile (end week 3)

Gold Boxes: Kodos Topiary, Hugs Bunny, Gate, (end week 1) Fence, Banana Dictatorship (end week 2) Pastel Fence, 250 Pink Eggs, Kang, Bunny 25601, Kodos, Blue Basket (end week 3)

For those not wanting to count…I won Chirpy and Bart Jr on attempt #13 and Blocko Store on attempt #18.  Ended up with 6 Fences (18 total towards Sucking Out quest), 700 Gold Eggs, 1 Easter Tree and 2 Umbrella and Towels.  So…I’ve now stopped attempting on pink since I’ve unlocked both items and am converting pink eggs to blue.

In the Blue Box I won the Egg Council Guy on my 14th attempt.  39 attempts and still no Johnny Fiestas though.

In the Gold Box I got lucky and won Hugs on my second attempt & Banana Dictatorship on my 5th!  And won Bunny 24601 on my 9th attempt.  11 Gold tries and still have Fr. Sean and Shary to get in Gold.

Overall haul includes:
2 Kodos
1 Kang
1 Easter tree
2 Towels and Umbrellas
5 Egg Piles
5 Ponds
1 Gate
14 Regular Fence Sets (42 total)
2 Sets Pastel Fence (4 total)
Egg Council Guy
Hugs Bunny
Chirpy and Bart Jr
Bunny 24601
Banana Dictatorship
Blocko Store

Still need:
Father Sean
Shary Bobbins
Johnny Fiestas
4 More Fences for Sucking Out Free Donuts

And I did win the Faberge Egg late over the weekend.   (for reference sake,  finished the main questline just shy of 2 weeks before winning the egg)
