Hello There Adventure Clammers!
Having fun working your way through the new Adventure Update? How much booty have YOU collected so far? Remember we’re only on day 1 of the event, there’s still 30 more to go. It’s not a race…it’s an event. So take your time, but play daily. You’ll all get there. 🙂
We’ve got loads of info coming for you guys (the weekend drop threw us off a bit, since we’re all in “weekend mode” and had various other things going on) but for right now I wanted to take a minute and go over a common question we see popping up in the comments a lot in the last day. What’s the difference between the idols and trophies? And will you lose idols if you buy stuff, thus making it harder to earn your prizes?
So let’s break down the ins and outs of this booty grabbing event, shall we?
Idols and trophies are the same thing, but also different. Here’s the deal….
Your current Idol total can be found in the top left of your main Quahog screen, next to your cash total:
Consider this total the same as your total cash, but for the event itself. This number will go up or down based on how many idols you spend or earn. You cannot purchase any item that costs more idols than you have in this total.
The Trophy total (which is also referred to as your score) can be found in the bottom right of your main Quahog screen:
Trophies are a running total of how many idols you’ve earned throughout the event. This number is the number the prizes are based on. And this total will only go up, it won’t decrease (even if you spend idols on stuff).
Once this total reaches each prize point you’ll unlock & earn that prize….
So have no fear when it comes to spending those idols, it will not impact your status in claiming your prizes.
What do YOU think of the idol/trophy system? Are you ok with items costing idols and not cash? Do you wish they cost cash? What do you think of the prizes you can earn? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
