Here’s mine for this week:

WHAT THE DEUCE… 12 Step Program. It gets better, than worse, then better, then perfect… then. Lol. I just want an ALWAYS drop. K Thnx Bai!

WHAT THE DEUCE… INSANITY over “things”. I saw a group of Women about kill each other for an item on sale. Just don’t get it. I saw that same item… cheaper even… for an entire month before the “sale”. No one touched it. Slap “LIMITED TIME SALE” on it and people lose their frakkin minds. Lol. ***shakes head***

 


Now it’s YOUR turn…give us your WHAT THE DEUCE?! moments!  Go on, get it off your chest…you’ll feel a lot better! 🙂

  1. I figured this is good as place as any to post this question. Can QFS be played without an internet connection? For example, on a plane for 3 hours without internet? And then “synced up” after?” I can’t seem to find any information posted anywhere saying yes or no

  2. You know what I’d like to see? More use of older characters… now I get the concern of newer people not being able to earn this, that, and the other thing… but what if instead of it being regular stuff, they allowed those of us that have been around for a while earn something special or clams or maybe a special way to help earn characters as opposed to us long time players who missed out on carl because the way to earn things was too difficult even for those of us playing every 2-4 hrs…

  3. Anyone notice how after you get Carl you no longer get spacemen? Everytime I search for spacemen now I come up empty and that’s really all Carl is good for once you complete his questline. It’s either that or the fact that we’re now working towards Demon Hunter Joe that’s messing me up but I’ve burned through six EMF readers in the last day and no spacemen and I’m running low on Cosmic Radiation….bummer.

  4. My goodness, I hate this campaign! I’m getting no where with just Peter killing poltergeist and aliens( besides the fact it took so long to get sheriff Peter) . I still have so much to do just to get James woods and I don’t think I have a chance at getting Carl. The game play is so slow and with very little to do but wait. The only thing I’m happy about is Area 51. If this is the way the games is going to be (slow and very unsatisfying), I may just set a Daily timer just to get my clams. I was excited when I first heard about this campaign, but it is completely disappointing. The past few months I’ve been less happy with the game, and I hope the next campaign doesn’t suck too. I’m giving this a few more days, but without the reward of getting the new characters, I may just put the game down for a while.

    • I am in the same boat. I can’t get past killing ghosts and poltergeists–for some reason I am required to use clams to buy something to generate what is needed to continue. Since I don’t have enough clams and won’t purchase more, I could not finish the first case. I never was able to get James Woods. I guess I just keep doing what I have been and figure my actual accomplishments in this particular event are over.

  5. I’ll be honest, I thought we were already in the second case! Apparently not I guess? This event feels like TinyCo is acting simplistic here and biased to their players. It feels like a mini event inside of an event which already has ‘weeks’ that are supposed to act as the break for each part of the event? In other words you have an event with a couple of weeks to break apart each section of the event nicely and have miniature events to cut up the weeks making the last half of week 1 and the first half of week 2 as one event inside of the event. See how complicated that is? Just, why not make it like every other event? Why does this have to be different? The last event with Peter’s Booty Haul was the second time I’ve ever felt relieved to have the full opportunity to have an opened ranged catalog without any timers on the ‘big item’ since Peterpalooza; minus the timer thing.

    It’s just, it feels like if mom told you to go to the deli to get milk… but also making sure to visit the hardware store to pick up keys before that and make sure the keys are delivered to the neighbors and to receive the pumpkin pie from them and bring it to the mail man where you’ll deliver the mail to that lady on the opposite side of town and come all the way back by taking the bus while gaining the money from selling magazines; then get the milk.

    It’s just, it’s not bad to spice things up in a game, but this wasn’t needed.

    I’m sad that I feel as if I can predict that it’s going to be a repeat of last year’s Halloween, which was a nightmare as to last Christmas’ with the event continuing even during maintenance for a week.

  7. Attention, citizens of Quahog…

    Your glorious Overlords at TinyCo have decreed that a new event-wide timer shall henceforth be imposed upon your lands. The priceless experience of missing out on a character by a few items shall no longer limited to the end of an event – it can now occur multiple times! “Keep up with the group or miss out” is our new motto.

    Be forewarned that the long-standing System of 12-Steps shall remain enforced alongside the new regime. As is tradition, any citizen who attempts to avoid the System of 12-Steps shall have the Clam Tax imposed upon their properties (and shall be forced to wear the Purse of Regret for a period of 12 moons). Glory be to the System of 12-Steps!

    The benevolence of your Overlords knows no bounds! You may return to your dwellings and speak ill of this to no one…

      This reminds me a bit of a (kinda terrible) play I went to see at the Edinburgh Fringe… It was called “Xenu is loose! Cower puny humans as the dark prince of the Galactic Federation rains atomic death once more upon your pitiful planet – the musical!”

    • The first paragraph is exactly my feeling… So some people complain about not getting to the last phase and/or just missing a character unlock, and their solution is to repeat that “just missed” disappointment several times as they push us into a new part when we were fine staying in the old part until we finished our goals?!?

      I had no trouble missing the last phase or two, but am not liking this new regime at all. Feels rushed and hopeless. I feel good about an event when I can pick up new characters, and so would much rather go at my own pace to get what I want. (I stopped playing that candy mini-event because I was knocked out of the running to get the Pawtucket Pete skin in the first couple of days. There was nothing left to work for.) How are people going to do the next case without Sheriff Peter, anyway? Are they retiring him from service or what? Is he going to prison for embezzling ectoplasm? What?

      I’m torn between just forgetting about the last two days of case 1 and still trying for Carl (hope springing eternal). Tasks seem too long and drops too skimpy/rare for Carl’s needs with such a short time limit – I just finally placed him late yesterday and also unlocked James Woods a little later. The buyouts for Carl will probably be beyond my clam budget, but we shall see.

      I don’t think TinyCo realized that so many people would take so long to even get to Carl and then get hit with new key trades that are not suitable for a late start. Takes too long to get the new item cosmic radiation to exchange. So that affects our ability to get the vital buildings. If we could have started collecting stuff for Carl while still in the last part, would have worked much better. So maybe they needed to push the new content a lot earlier (maybe just reduce the requirement for getting it) without messing so much with the exchanges, and let us decide whether we wanted to work on Carl or Woods first. I would have avoided triggering the latest content to get more keys for ectoplasm, but it was so late that I thought I needed to move on to have any chance at Carl. Bad idea. Keep wasting small supply of readers on non-existent aliens, so don’t know if I’ll get the popcorn building in time. Am overflowing with ectoplasm but that no longer helps by itself to get keys.

      I don’t think TinyCo really wants us to feel bad about an event like this. I’m thinking that maybe I should stop playing this event, just stop by daily for clam tv and Area 51 clam pickup. In the old “you have until the end of the event to unlock the characters” plan, it felt much better. Even those awful timed characters theoretically allowed us to get as far as we needed before triggering them, so we could save up currency and get a head start. And except at the end of the event, we had the full time needed regardless of when we triggered the timer.

  8. Same WTD as everyone else. Bad drop rates on bug spray, abysmal rates on EMFs, and aliens found maybe one out of six searches. I’m used to being perpetually behind despite tapping every 3-4 hours and not completing events but this is becoming beyond outrageous. If it wasn’t for the fact that we’re able to move on to the next case without completing the previous one I’d be done with this event all ready and my patience threshold is pretty darn high.

    Like

  9. My WTD is pretty much the same as everyone else’s: The Week 2 vicious circle: We only have 1 source for EMF readers and the “drop rate” for aliens from EMF readers seems to be extra rare. So, no aliens = no radiation. No radiation = no exchanges for Skeletons Keys. No Skeleton Keys = No Skin Suit Warehouse to act as a the second source for the super Rare EMF readers.

    And of all the characters that this is bottlenecking…Carl – an H. Jon Benjamin voiced character? Nooooo!!!

  15. I’ve commented on a few but now I must post a WTD of my own……

    My WTD:
    Dearest TinyCo, why must you make drop rates so unbelievably hair pullingly ridiculous?!?! This is a game and meant to be fun, not upsetting. Does it cost extra money to code in better drop rates?! Does the TinyCo company have to lock their doors next time someone earns a character completely freemium??? Is the world going to crumble around you if you drop some radiation when I kill a bug, or adding a few more aliens per room?!? Huh? Huh??!! UGH!😫

    So to sum up….please, if you’d like to keep the players you have from going completely insane MAKE THE DROP RATES BETTER!!! The game is NO FUN this way!! I would actually spend more money if the drop rates werent soooooooooooooooo frustrating!!

    Thank you for listening.

Also with regards memory issues, check in your game settings if you can use low memory graphics.

  24. Hi Bunny, first, WTD…drops on bug spray, really? So, infest Rocky Manor with more bugs than can possibly be cleared in a dark and stormy fortnight (nods to Tigger) and then give minimal drops?? WTD???

    Second are two stupid questions: One, I unlocked James Woods today, and am collecting for Carl. Since James Woods is the Case 1 character, and Carl is the Case 2 character, do I have until the end of Case 1 to unlock him (>7 days), or do I get until the end of Case 2 (~14 days) to unlock him?

    (Just thought of another WTD: I made the fatal mistake of clicking on the “little green man” character in the store before I could earn him…ugh…WTD…)

    Second, I started playing this game in February of this year and am unlocking the last available land plots now. Once those are open, it doesn’t seem that coins are that important other than the random deco/quest line need. Do coins become less relevant at that point?

    Thanks!

      Regarding Carl: It’s a learning curve for us all unfortunately. According to faq the case related questlines and characters will leave at end of the case, but until Case 2 hits we won’t know for certain 😦
      as for coins, wow you unlocked all the land and you’ve only been playing since February :O they will prob open another plot sometime in the future so I think it’s worth saving up for anyway.

        As it is I have 2 crates of the 7 needed (help says 4 are needed which is wrong). It seems like crates are rare drops and poltergeists are rare finds, making it nearly impossible to complete. I can’t even begin to try to unlock Carl.

  27. Worst week 2 ever. I think the only time it’s been more difficult to to make any progress is when I’ve been completely locked out of the game and couldn’t play at all. The term paywall gets kicked around here and there but in about two years of playing this game, this is the first time I think that term has moved from figurative to literal. Completely stuck without being able to find those spacemen with the EMF”s. Sure, I can buy EMF’s and buy some more EMF’s… but if they never find spacemen… I wonder if they’re even on. They didn’t come with directions. Did I get a bad batch? Does anyone know the number of the manufacturer? Is there a recall? What’s going on here? So after that, I guess I can always buy that thing that drops the… whatever they are this week to trade for keys. Nice. Can’t get those clams out of my pocket fast enough. Right. Lovely. Thanks.

    Every time I think this game is making some good progress, this type of thing happens and I just feel like the programmers are in there looking like Fred Randall when he’s in that spinning machine trying to get all those wires plugged in right… while some manager is on the side yelling to make it harder because no one will pay if it’s not difficult enough…. Yep, I’m pretty sure it’s just like that probably.

  28. WTD drop rates and “bugs”. Common drop rate for bug spray, but after having Chris hula hoop for 24 hours, I still haven’t received any bug spray. I went through 9 EMF readers before I got my first alien. I sent a message to Tinyco and was told, “We have an update which should fix bugs, etc.”.
