Friday Filler- and the Math of Chillaxing in Act III

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!!

First…on a serious note…our continued prayers and thoughts go out to any of you getting pounded by Harvey. There isn’t much more to say, except for BE SAFE! There are loads of places that tappers can donate to help the cause. But, at the very least, take some time to give thanks for the brave souls who are fighting through this mess.

On a less serious note (and clearly less important in the big picture), we are now into Act III of this music-centric update. And, it should be evident to all of you that “getting it all” is pretty simple. I will explain why/how you can go about leading a life that is void of anxiety and worry (as it pertains to “getting it all”) in this final Act.  And I hope that it helps some of you who seemed panicked by the gaping holes on your performance stages.

Let’s dive into “Chillaxing” with a pragmatic look at the math…

BeatBox Your Way to Act 3! Homepalooza Act 3 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

“Yo! Hey, what’s happening dude?  I’m the guy with the rep for being rude.  Terrorizing people wherever I go, It’s not intentional just keepin’ the flow.”

Come on guys, let’s all Do the Bartman! (not to be confused with Steve Bartman, who’s now the proud owner of a Cubbies WS ring. Mr. Bartman, if by chance you read this site, I never thought you cursed them.  They just played like C-R-A-P)

Gooooood mooooorning Tappers!  Welcome to the wee early morning hours, who’s ready to get their hip hop on?  Grab those hoodies & practice your Mic Drops, because it’s time for Homerpalooza to go Hip Hop, as Act 3 is arrives into our Springfields this morning…

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Lisa will start this for you with dialogue.  This will be followed by needing to keep your Rock and Pop characters jamming because you’re going to need that prize track currency.

Act 3 “Hip Hop” Runs until September 12th
Note: the whole event ends Sept. 12th

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Pop Act Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Pop Act (Act 2) of the Homerpalooza Ends TOMORROW August 29th at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Pop Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning sunglasses if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act  As will the Tickets you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with the Pop Act check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Hip-Hop Act to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (August 29th)….

Rock Act Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Rock Act (Act 1) of the Homerpalooza Ends TOMORROW August 15th at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Rock Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning cuffs if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act  As will the Tickets you’ve accumulated.

Be ready for the Pop Act to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (August 15th)….

Homerpalooza Free Donuts

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Most of you are just getting to unlocking Nick Delacourt, so you’ll notice this in the next few hours or the coming days. (or you already noticed it)

For this event EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER)….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case once you’ve completed the main questline, which requires you to unlock Nick Delacourt and make him Rock on the Rock stage, you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 5,000  you collect after getting Nick Delacourt (and making him rock), you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 1 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  Between Nick and Peter (the final prize) you’ll earn enough cuffs to go through 4 bonus rounds!

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 1 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  Rock on Tappers!  And happy bonut collecting!
