What the Hell?!

Happy Friday Clammers!

Well, we’ve all made it through another “work week” and the weekend is here.  All week we field your comments about your frustrations in the game (What they raised the prices on things?!) and we wanted to give you (and us) a fun new way for you to voice your frustrations and get it all off of your chest.

So welcome to (a special Saturday edition of) What the Hell?!

-Getting REALLY annoyed that you’re still collecting vials for Mr. Weed
-Annoyed that only 3 characters unlock other characters ?
-Someone cut you off on your commute this morning?

Here’s your place to vent about anything and everything, Family Guy or not.  Consider this your weekly bitch fest and get it all out with a good…What the Hell?! And start your weekend fresh! 🙂
Just be respectful of others & be mindful of the language.  

Here’s my What the Hell?! For this week:

-An hour wait in-between hits to Stay Puft..really?!  But I want my Goop NOW!  What the hell?!

-Trick-or-treaters…yes I’m still complaining about them because I hate them.  They’re all over my town and driving me crazy…What the hell?!

-And finally…I love Christmas.  Like seriously love it.  I start looking forward to it one Labor Day hits.  BUT…Christmas stuff out already?!  Even I think it’s too early!  What the hell people?!  Can we get through October first?!

Now it’s YOUR turn…give us your What the hell?! moments from the past week!  Go on, get it off your chest…you’ll feel a lot better! 🙂

  7. Okay, I’ve had a crappy day, so every little thing seems to be bugging me today. I know the weekend is over, and I hope I’m not too late to kvetch. WTH is it with the latchers repeatedly attaching themselves to the same 3-4 buildings. Random my butt! Am I the only one who really detests the trick-or-treaters? I really hate the one hour timer on Stay-Puff between roasts. But here’s my biggest WTH. . . I really enjoy this game, but I’ve never had an app that is such a heavy drain on my battery (iOS, iPhone 4S). If I forget to totally close the app out, I can count on my battery being dead by noon.

    Like I said, I’m cranky because I’ve had a rough day. I blame USPS, but that’s a different long story.

  9. WTH.
    Why Thanks a Heap
    Freemium, Started playing mid comic con. Got all the stuff I wanted from that event with help from this site. (Except didn’t think to buy a wavy man cuz I had to scrimp and they live on the costume shop anyway-and now can’t place one in my water for massive enjoyment)

    TODAY- Used stewies duck outfit purchase to level up in FP and get the remaining clams I needed to unlock Cleveland and I hope to get his gb outfit!
    Otherwise, I will likely pass on everything that we don’t NEED to buy, in order to get Mr weed, I only need 12,000 or so vials but they seem to come fairly quickly with tot and marshmallow man.

    I could not have done it without the expert strategies and advice found on this site.
    And, I would probably have quit in frustration as some challenges are just not that easy to grasp at first and quite easy to mess up!

    Thanks for making it enjoyable, I’m sure tiny co knows if they can keep freemium customers engaged, that we likely will convert at some time to premium.

    I will say, I think sometimes freemium has an advantage, as I’m always playing from behind by at least a few days (things take longer), I can learn from mistakes made or lessons learned by the players who forge bravely ahead. :).

  10. I think the weirdest thing I have seen is that the costume/party supply stores have both Halloween stuff and some Christmas stuff in them right now. So… I can get a Santa costume right now, WTH. With that in mind, I think I might go as Santa for Halloween. Is that sacrilegious?

  11. Wonderful…my game was stuttering along, freezing and unfreezing and somehow it registered me buying a mystery box for 100 clams. I have no interest in these boxes. I sent an in-game message asking for a reversal (I got 15 useless Banshee tears). What do you think my chances are of getting this fixed? I’ve bought numerous clams throughout the lifespan of this game…I’m hoping they don’t do me wrong here.

  13. Ok Bunny, I know I’m staying up too late and reading this blog when I start having dreams about Bunnyliscious. No Ms Bunny, not one of “those” dreams. It was at a Family Guy Addict’s event. You were at a table talking to people and signing autographs. Alissa was on the other end. Not sure how I got there but I walked over to say hi get an autograph and you rolled your eyes and had security escort me away. It was odd since I was wearing footy pajamas and you never actually spoke. I was really curious to see if you sounded like Kristen Schaal like you did in my head. Yes even now after I have heard your true voice. I can’t help it. My mind does weird things. Anyway, everyone else was talking quite loudly and berating me for showing up uninvited and late. Apparently your dream self hates me or my dream self is very unlikable. Either way I was escorted out and spent the last of my long and oddly vivid dream, attempting to find my way back home without freaking people out in my long red pajamas with a butt flap and feet.

    Just in case you’re curious, everywhere I hid to stay unseen on my journey home, I was discovered by someone and had to find a new hiding space to protect my bare bottom. The butt buttons didn’t work on my butt flap so it was shining the moon across the town. It was a lot like the dream of being in school in your underwear. It seemed to last forever and I never did find my way home or get an autograph from you ladies. Overall a slightly scary and uncomfortable dream.

    Please apologize to dream Bunny for my dream self. If she and dream Alissa could find it in their heart, I’m sure dream me would gladly pay to acquire an autograph from each or even from just one to place in the frame with the items won in the Comic-con event contest. He would be happy to trade for cash, a poem, a short story or any other fair barter items. If too much of an inconvenience or other circumstances, I’m sure he would understand. Thanks for your time and all you do for us. May all your pickles stay fresh and crispy.

  17. Probably not the first time you’ve heard this, but I’ve been getting a ton of crashes lately. Basically I can’t do two things in the same session or it freezes or gives a bad_aloc error and I have to hard reset. So if I bomb kids, I can’t check the cauldron prizes, or if I check my fright points, I can’t bomb Stay Puft without a crash. Gonna send a message to TinyCo about it, just checking in here.

  24. I think this event is too hard for the freemium guys and guyets. I’m on it religiously and have reminders set and all that junk and I think I have no chance of Mr weed. Every time I get a half decent amount of vials something else comes out. You can’t rack the points up as quickly. I was hoping the stay puft multipler would help but even that’s not churning out the points and the hour delay is just stupid. Not enjoying this event as much as comic con.

      Don’t give up… I’ve been working at it as well and while it is tedious there are ways to maximize your work have the ghost busters take care of the Hounds/Banshee’s except Peter, have Pink Brain, Mort, Jake, Bonnie and Meg (if you have them) get balloons as well as Having Bruce, Jerome, Chris and Peter to get stuff for the marshmallow man. And finally use Dianna and Francis to get Ghost Traps. (Using bombs try to get at least 4 or more kids at a time, ghost trap leachers, by waiting the full time and then using any the traps earned through Dianna and Fransics to take out the rest of them) and then bomb the Marshmallow Man (you should find that most of these task are 4 hours (except for the ones to earn marshmallow bombs which if you’re using the ones I recommended are all 2 hours long) Don’t forget to click the “grey ghost” and slimer as well. I just went from 3,892 to 4,050 (No Predator, Alien, Jason or anyone like that) just from clicking the people (not bombing anything Marshmallow Man or Trick Or Treaters) And that was after already clicking 4 or 5 before keeping tally.
      15 Bonnie
      15 Brian
      10 Bruce
      10 Chris
      25 Dianna
      15 Francis

      15 Meg
      15 Mort

      • I forgot to add a few things into the math such as

        Leacher (Min 1 every 4 hours, max 3)
        75 Leacher (4 Hour Task) x 4 = 300

        Balloons
        15 Pink Brian ( 4 Hour Task) x 4 = 60
        15 Bonnie (4 Hour Task 60
        15 Mort (4 Hour Task) 60
        15 Jake ( 4 Hour Task) 60

        Marshmallow’s
        10 Bruce (2 Hour Task) x 8 80
        10 Chris (2 Hour Task) 80
        10 Jerome (2 Hour Task) 80
        10 Vampire Stewie (2 Hour Task) 80
        20 Ghost Buster Peter (2 Hour Task) 160

        Hell Dog Bones/Banshee Tears
        15 Slutty Cat Meg (2 Hour) x 8 120
        15 Ghost Buster Joe (2 Hour) 120
        Ghost Buster Cleveland 120
        15 Ghost Buster Gleen (3 Hour Task) x 5 (15 hours) 75

        Ghost Traps (For Leachers)
        25 Dianna ( 4 Hour Task) x 4 100
        15 Francis ( 4 Hour Task) or 60

        Misc
        Or 10 Fancis (2 Hour Task, Reading the Bible) x 8 80
        5 Lois (1 Hour Task) x 16 80

        So Assuming you play at least 1 time every 4 hours for (16 Hours a Day, Checking in and Assigning task only)

        You can end up earning (just from the Leacher and Characters (Not Including the Buildings)
        1,695 a day/
        If I knew the time for the buildings I’d go ahead and add those in as well…
        Then on top of that 1,695 and the buildings is the Marshmallow Man (who when Maxed up earns at least 1,000 and up to 1,500 (I’m sure you can do that at least once a day for 2 days straight before losing the multiplier) so you will have about 2,695 to 3,000 + by the end of 24 hours.
        at that rate of income it will take about 8 days to have Weed.
        Remember also that If you have the traps you can actually get another 2 per a 4 hours so instead of 300 you’d have 900 just from that.

    • I don’t think it’s too hard necessarily (I am always frustrated when games like this arbitrarily decide on #s and don’t balance it, and I think they did a poor job this time round, hence all the hotfixes for Rockets, Balloons, etc) … but I wanted to reply to your post specifically because of the Mr. Weed comment. How in the heck are people getting Mr. Weed already?!? I am running every character through Halloween quests, I have over ONE HUNDRED Latcher Talons and TWO HUNDRED freakin’ Candy Corns and nothing good to spend them on … because just brewing the Cauldron items needed for quests/characters/costumes and I’m back to only 8,000 Vials.

      I wasn’t around for King Butt, but several people during Comic Con noted that they “learned their lesson” in making the final character (George Takei) earned with “total items over time”, rather than saving up … so what do they do, they go right back to the problem way of doing it. 11 days left and the closest i’ve come to Mr. Weed was about 11,000 Vials … and then I had to use 4k for Vampire Stewie, and made some of the Vial costed building because there are not nearly enough ways to get Ghostbuster Cleveland items. You seemingly *have* to spend the Vials on those buildings … and boom, I’m back to being way behind for Mr. Weed again.

      What are people using to stockpile so many Vials?! Is it only people who purchased a premium Vial dropping building that have Mr. Weed?!

      (BTW, 165/hr Vials means over 100 hours, uninterrupted with sleep or anything else, before you gather enough for Mr. Weed. Realistically, with sleep or anything else, that’s closer to 6 days. Just enough time for them to hit you with the next batch of quests that require more Vials. Thomas’ math only supports the problem, not a solution)

        which means from the buildings (which payout from 1 times (24 hour ones) to up to 12 (2 hour ones)
        I can get another 148 min a day so around 316 between the two minimum. (Note: I counted each building one time even if it pays every 2 hours)
        Honestly though I think that they should use the fright level earned as a multiplier. So by the time you reach level 8 you’d get 2,528 a day minimum

I set it and all of a sudden I see a new item/section on the top of my town. I believe I have currently gotten a sneak peak of the next update for Family Guy QFS via some sort of game glitch. I moved Quagmire’s house and what I saw is now gone, but I took a screen shot of it!!!
