New Year’s Results and A New Poll About The Best Of Event

Hello There Clammers!

A couple of weeks ago I asked for your take on the New Year’s mini-event that hit our Quahogs in early January and as usual you didn’t disappoint!  You guys really love giving your feedback on events & we love breaking it down and sharing your opinions with TinyCo!  You know they’re listening…especially with the latest Best of 2014 Event!

We’ll get to the results of the New Year’s Poll in a minute, but first I wanted to get your take on the Best of Event.  Since TinyCo really responded to what a lot of you wanted to return (as evident by our what do you want to see return post), we want to see how it all turned out.  What did you buy?  What were you missing? What was your take on the event?  Please take a moment to answer the poll questions below…

Now let’s get to those New Year’s Results…

Overall we had just over 4,000 of you respond to the New Year’s Poll, not bad for a mini event poll that got buried with the District 10 release.  Of those 4,000+ readers less than 1% were locked out for the event/didn’t participate in the event.  From the rest of you that were able to participate here are your results..

Did You Unlock Jillian?
Yes 98%
No 1%
Still Working On Her 1%
Did You Unlock Jillian’s Apartment?

Did You Purchase New Year’s Brian?

If You Purchased New Year’s Brian, Did You Unlock Jillian?

No 3%
Overall Rate the Event
(1-Hated It, 5-Loved It)
1 4%
2 18%
3 48%
4 24%
5 6%

And those are your results for New Year’s 2015!  Overall it looks like most of you did fairly well with the event, unlocking Jillian and her costume.  And not surprisingly a majority of you did not purchase New Year’s Brian, this was evident from the comments you guys were making.  But still, I’d call this a successful mini-event!

New Year's Jillian and Brian

  1. I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted Kool Aid Man, Sexy Stewie, and.. I think it’s called Fart of the Covenant? Sp? Lol really disappointed.

  2. I thought the event was cool but not nearly long enough for the number of items needed to unlock characters AND the scarcity of some of those items! i was ONE item away from unlocking King Butt and the event ended on me. to make an item “epic” when there is such a strict time constraint is REALLY unfair…and then to want 10 or 15 of them is even worse when it takes 12 hours to complete the task! so i paid the coins for both George and King Butt and wasn’t able to unlock EITHER of them. ONE item away…ONE…with no option to purchase for clams…that’s just WRONG.

  3. I agree with Loyalwolf, it’s a shame there has been nothing for the Smith family to do since the event….. feels like I’ve got five characters who are no help on my quest for stuff

  4. For one of the items to get King Butts, Consuela had an action, do a sexy dance or something similar. Now I have Consuela, and she doesn’t do that, lol. Did I misread?

  5. I really just wish this event would have given the American Dad and Christmas premium characters something to do. They’ve been pretty much useless (except very briefly for the New Year’s event…and that was just the Christmas characters) since their events ended. This seemed like it would have been the perfect opportunity to give them something to do that would be worthwhile/for the current event. Even just making tasks they have that seem similar to standard character tasks (like Hayley’s version of Brian’s smoking task) drop the same items would be an improvement. It would make the clam investment seem much more worth it.

    • I was thinking the same thing. I notice that several character had the same question and was wondering why they didn’t just allow them to help, too. Also, quagmire has “watch netchix” in the sailor mode (I think) and in his normal form same time limit – no advantage one to the other except the non costume dropped objects during the contest. Didn’t make sense. Don’t ever remember using the sailor one when I got his uniform. Many costumes once you unlock them use them once then they are useless. No story or task attached to them. Anime Peter, Banana Brian, Mermaid Peter….. Was so waiting for a story to play out after unlocking.?????
      Oh add Tricia Toyota to the no story line. Was wondering what her fussy mom and other issue would come into play.

  8. I have mixed feelings about this event. I got King Butts easily enough, and I dropped some clams for Cleveland’s skin. Neither had any storyline though. In my B game, which I started just after New Year’s, I found it impossible to get any of the 3 freemium characters. There just weren’t enough characters with options to get the necessary items collected without spending clams. Very frustrating, especially since they’re usually good about that (I got Phineas and Barnaby fairly easily). Overall, it just kind of felt like a money grab.

  9. How many clams do u get for completing the rite of tower passage?

  10. My response to TinyCo: Paying a lot(over 50 clams) for a random item is discouraging. I wanted Stripper Bonnie and Ron Pearlman but didn’t want to spend $1000+ clams trying. Bryan Cranston was, bluntly put, too expensive. It feels like you’re stretching the boundaries of how much we will spend and its driving me to spend less. Also, if you have multiple characters and random boxes if characters who earn items for them, don’t mix them. I would have bought a character to get teddy bears, even random one, but wasn’t willing to risk my clams and come out empty handed(and a random do nothing skin is empty handed to me). Love the game but fear the greed.

    • I responded in kind to then in game and in the pole in regards to both the cost and that characters should of had their own box. This challenge was about manpower. 50 costumes for the same characters, who can only do one costumed or uncostumed task at a time. Said I would of got one box for a chance to get get a new character to help with goal at 125. Which with the help of Jesus (who started actually preforming miracles. he dropped 3 clams once, too) and Ollie I had enough.
      The main characters were too expensive, love the free building, would of love the phone booth and pyramid as consolation prize but the dang bears and Anka refused to drop till the end and it was too late. Was really hurt and frustrated cause I put sooo much time checking in and and making sure everyone was on task and barely walked away with Mr. Weed. Know it is just a game but still…. Should of ended today- I feel. Two much to do with too many screwed up drops, fixed at the last minute blew the chances for freemiun or cash strapped players, with 6 or even less (newbies) to work with. Hopefully Valentines will be different. 🙂

  11. As I already had all character/costumes I didn’t have take part in the best of 2014 event, so I was focused on District 10, and was able to finish all of its questlines, now I’m just collecting materials to create the last few items in the brewery.

  12. Not related but anyone else hoping for a jesus/lois combo animation of lois’ s chest grows, first expression shock, then mischief, then bounces up and down, then loses balance faceplants and they get squished back?

    Or a chris(or steve) herbert combo where they are up on a ladder on herberts house in a kilt, herbert stares, jaw drops, clutches chest and falls over, chris/steve hop off the ladder and cpr?

    other thoughts for vday – valentine’s lingerie lois/bonnie/francine. – carters dog with half human puppies in game – quagmire makes roofie-cooladas for lois/meg, drinks wrong cup passes out.

  13. I am fairly new to the game, but I was wondering why Tinyco doesn’t just make all the characters and skins from past events available to buy instead of having a “best of” event. If they did everyone could decide what characters to spend their clams on.

    • If you collect it all again you’ll earn clams again, at least that’s what worked for other players.

      • I love the tower. Now that I just learned the secret. “giggles”. Really breaks the monotony. Have 5 plutonium to go to get Stewie. Only task left to progress story, all my task from here require him and it is sooo boring waiting for these items to drop… the tower game me something else to shoot for, to make the wait less painful. Collected almost all since Tuesday’s event end. Hope they let it keep going, 🙂

  18. Great poll just took it. I think a great Adina would be to do this again and add premium buildings to these mystery boxes. Especially ones that prevent certain characters from performing a task (dead format records, smith house, fart of the covenant, luckys orphanage etc)
