Christmas/Winter 2015 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As the Christmas/Winter Event is over in Springfield…it’s time to look back on ALL of the items that were added/at one time for sale through this update & try to make them fit somewhere in our Springfield.  Throughout the last month many new/returning items were available for purchase or to win…a ton of stuff to fit into an already crammed Springfield!   With all of the new items  added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings (especially since this might help you decide what to keep out & what to put into storage).

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Christmas event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Act 2, Daily Challenges AND Crafting Are Ending…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that at 0800 GMT (3am EDT) Act 2 will officially end.  And the end of Act 2 will also see the end of Crafting AND the Daily Challenges.  So collect those final mistletoe, craft those prizes and complete this week’s Daily Challenges BEFORE 0800 GMT tomorrow morning (1/2/16)…or it will be too late!

Act 3 will start tomorrow…BUT Act 3 is completely different than Act 2.  As in…everything we’ve been doing for Acts 1 and 2 will completely change.  So don’t expect anything in Act 2 to continue beyond tomorrow morning.

Again…for those who don’t really like to read…the bullet points:

CRAFTING WILL END TOMORROW 0800 GMT 1/2/16 (so craft what you want before it’s too late)

ACT 2 WILL END TOMORROW 0800 GMT 1/2/16 (this means ALL of the prizes and ability to upgrade the  buildings…)

DAILY CHALLENGES WILL END TOMORROW 1/2/16 ( either at 0800 GMT or 5am YOUR local time so finish this week’s challenges BEFORE tomorrow morning, or you’ll miss out on this week’s donuts)

If you didn’t yet get Maggie…don’t worry.  She’s an important part of Act 3, and required for most of it, so you WILL be able to get her in Act 3 if you weren’t able to get her during Act 2…so don’t panic about Maggie.

Also, remember the items in the store will be leaving with Act 2 as well…so check out your stores and buy anything/everything you’ve been wanting (this includes the freemium items in the store as well…pay attention to your timers).

Have fun and we’ll see you tomorrow for the start of Act 3….

What are your thoughts on Act 2?  Did you enjoy it?  Earn all the prizes?  Almost there?  Did you unlock Maggie?  Which items did you craft/purchase?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
