Friday Filler – I Think My Math Killed the Game…Sorry!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I don’t usually take much notice of conspiracy theories…unless I am the one who is spreading them.  However, I think I may have taunted “Bob the Part-Time EA Programmer” into actually killing the game out of spite.

The fact is, I’ve been calling the programming lazy for months. And on top of it, I have bragged that I just Donut Farm between events to allow me to save enough donuts to pretty much rush the entire event.  It’s pretty basic…even though I am a “Casual Donut Farmer” as described in Safi’s posts.  I farm just enough to keep my cash pretty much static, or slightly growing.

That of course all changed, when the “Wailing Wall Glitch” hit and we were able to boost the holyfreakinshirt out of our Bonus % ratings.  I went from around 800% to a little over $1250% before the ITEM LIMITS stopped me from going further.

I think that is where the trouble began. And now…I think that Bob is gunning for me, and perhaps taking you all down with me.  BUT THERE IS A SOLUTION!

Black History Month Act 4 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Tuesday, March 3rd, Act 4 of the Black History Month Event will be starting .  The official start time is 10am ET.

The Act 3 questline (nor will the Acts 1 or 2) won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Act 4 starts.  But ALL questlines must be finished by the time Act 4 ends next week…

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Act 4 to start…

During Act 4 it’ll be Grampa’s turn to tell his story…the Simpson family history!  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Acts 1, 2 and 3 currency tasks should be used for the Act 4 including the premium characters.  So we’re looking at:
Homer
Lisa
Bart
Grampa
Marge
Moe
Quimby
Carl
Lou
Bernice Hibbert
Dr. Hibbert
Hibbert’s Dad
Stogie
The Patriarch
New Premium character for Act 4

You’ll also need Wiggum free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during Act 4, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for Act 4.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Act 4 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on Act 3?  Ready for Act 4?  Excited to see where the story goes? Just ready to see it all end? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Friday Filler – Sometimes the Writers Get It Right!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

In an effort toward full transparency, I admit readily to not only rushing Act III of this unbelievably boring event, but to being happy that I did.  And in an even more transparent move (if I get any more transparent, I’ll disappear!), I am writing this well before Friday (or Firday if you prefer) because the topic came to me while rushing through the Act.

As I mentioned last week, the primary benefit of rushing (binging) is that you get to read the dialogue quickly, and in more of an unbroken script.  The length of time it takes to play this event in real time, kind of sucks the fun out of the dialogue, because it takes too long to get to it.  But, by rushing, you get the whole thread quickly…even if the thread is broken into weirdly disparate parts.

The best part of this act, was that the writer(s?) who wrote it (it felt like two different writers, cobbled together…but, I’ll get to that), had fun reveling in their own shortcomings as storytellers for ALL of the Springfield citizens.

Representation of ALL citizens became a fun, and pretty hilarious theme…at the cost of admitting how little we see most of the characters we win.

Let’s take a look.
