New Year’s 2015 Phase 2 Is Here!

UPDATE BUNNY 2pm EST 1/9/15: Just verified from TinyCo a patch has been pushed to resolve the issue with Peter and Lois and the item drops. Please let us know if things are back to normal in your games. 😉 

UPDATE BUNNY: Putting this up top, but it looks like they have finally set the end date as January 15th! So make sure your Characters are unlocked by then.

I love everything except how impossible it is to get extra rare items for Juillian I’ve been trying since she got there and only have one black necklace and I have everything except New Years Brian he cost to much I don’t understand why u would need to pay that much clams for just a tux…. But yea other than that I love the new additions.

  8. Soooooo annoying that the bracelets and necklace NEVER drop! I’ve been working all characters non stop around the clock ( yes waking up every 2hrs) and have 2!
    Also, i think it would be nice to plave characters in inventory! I have too many who arent of benegit since i already have max xp and $2million. I didnt buy the kiss characters because i have too many characters and its a pain sifting through them to find someone useful

    • They disabled characters in inventory for a bit due to a lock out issue that happened when one needed was in there preventing players from getting in the game. That was patched. Try now to store them. Tap on them and look for the blue Inventory icon by their name. Tap it and store them.

    • I am with you on sending characters every 2 hours for the necklaces and only having 2/5. Given the event ends in 4 days, it is starting to seem impossible to unlock a “freemium” character without using clams. I find the New Years event pretty anti-climactic after a such a great Christmas event.

    • Don’t worry about Clam items so much. Games are always set up for two styles of players. Freemiums, who enjoy coasting along and playing to earn what they can without investing in the game. Premiums, who pay into the game and keep the game alive (someone has to pay for the cost to make the game) and don’t mind buying items to place in their towns like special Characters and buildings.

      How you play will always be YOUR choice. You will never have to buy something. It will always be there as an option, but you will make the final decision of whether or not it is worth it to you to invest. 😉

        As long as developers market their games as “free to play,” people who do so should be referred to as simply players, not “people who coast along.”

        • I was a Freemium in the OTHER game we write on for a long time before becoming Premium and working with Addicts. And I did just that… coasted along at my own pace, did my own thing, got what I could when I could. So… in MY eyes… a good analogy. 🙂
          It has NOTHING to do with an EXACT title by developers and marketing. It is MY words. Thanks anyway. 🙂

  14. I have had everything to get Jillian for a couple days now except the Bracelets….. Haven’t gotten 1 yet and I have had all 4 possible tasks going all the time and not one will drop. I know it says extra rare but the other one was extra rare as well and I have gotten all 5 of them….. Is the bracelet drop broken? Thanks

    • Try force closing, then restart your device and go back in. Try again. See if that helps.

    • One trick that seems to work is sending the character on a short task before sending them on the item task again. I know Lois and joe have a 1 minute task And Stewie has a three minute task. Give it a try.

      Like

    • Another thing you can try, if you don’t mind parting with a few clams, is to wait until there’s 30 min or less remaining on the task timer, then complete the task early with the yellow fast-forward button. It’ll only cost you one clam per character, and in my experience it seems to dramatically increase the drop rate. I went three days without getting a single necklace, then I started doing this and I had them all within a few hours.

    Ever since this update (since Tuesday I believe), I keep getting a Consuela screen that says ‘DATA ERROR There was a problem loading the game. Please try again.’ I am totally locked out of the game, can’t get to Help and Support. Worst thing is, it’s been so long since I had to type in a password that I can’t remember what the password is, so I am scared of uninstalling the game. I have hard closed app and restarted phone, but still can’t get into the game. I don’t know what to do.

            Still hanging in there, but for the record, still nothing. Don’t you have some pull? Can you mention my email address and get them to look into my game? We’re going on a week since I’ve gotten into my game. I’m missing out on….stuff!

            • Lol… “pull”. We are able to help when there is a mass issue impacting widespread players. Individual issues are really tough as they are one on one and alternate troubleshooting has to be done, like in your case. So even if I email them… it will still take the same amount of time as you emailing them and waiting for a reply. It is just 9am there, so they are just getting in. I honestly wouldn’t be able to do much more.

              Feel free to send a followup email to see the status of your ticket. Also, watch your junk/spam to make sure if they did send something and it got caught there. Wish I could help more. I offered the only troubleshooting I know of. We have no access to players games, nor should we. That really needs to be handled securely by them. Sorry.
