  1. I’ve been playing since day one, and in week one of the Samurai event I’ve come to the conclusion that this game is no longer fun, rewarding or deserving of my time.

  2. Of the game mechanics that irk me the most, how many did Tinyco manage to include in this event?

    Having to earn a costume before even getting started in an event? Check
    Requiring rare item drops to fight event “villains” to make progress? Check
    Having to earn items that must be exchanged for intermediate items (at ever-increasing exchange rates) to then buy event items? Check
    Requiring event items to be unlocked in order, instead of letting me skip to items that actually contribute to my progression? Check

    Well played, Tinyco. See you next event, because I’m passing on this one.

  3. My current what the deuce for the new event Kung Pow Quahog is why on earth do they continually insist on making everything super rare in events? So I have gone ahead like a total moron and purchased Walking Joe because I actually wanted to see Joe walking on a regular basis in my game for the novelty of it and I THOUGHT he would be a huge advantage in this phase since he can fight nerds before you get the Peter costume unlocked….so for these reasons I felt he might be worth the 270 clams I had saved up. I pulled the trigger, only to immediately regret it because I can’t get a darned fight contract to save my life.. They claim they are “rare” but so far in my game might as well be as epic as those darned eyeballs for anime Peter once were! My town is now over run with a million nerds and I can’t use walking Joe for anything but an extra trophy here and there when one drops because as I’ve since learned, the drops for him aren’t always either, even though I’ve just spent 270 of my hard saved clams! What the deuce indeed Tiny Co. I’ve been really spending a lot of time in some other games lately and my love and addiction for TQFS has really faded. I feel these past several events have really been reaches way beyond what anything the actual Family Guy series is even about and honestly, I’m thinking this event just may be my swan song with this game. It was a fun ride once upon a Quahog. Not so much anymore.

  4. gaaahhhhh…screw this game! i think i’m jus pretty much done at this point. it’s suppose to be a fun and entertaining game when in reality it’s NOT even close that.

  5. What the deuce….I give up. If you are someone who can’t spend money, like me, and you can’t stay up 24 hours a day, it’s pointless to try in these mini events at all. I am always more than one week behind in the events that bother to last a month. It gets old fast. Perhaps the creators want everyone who won’t or can’t spend money on this to just leave.

  8. I really wanted everything Ineeded Road to Bollywood. I spent 19.99 on clams. I got mostly everything but they should have given a heads up that Boss Battle would end after you earned Ganesha.

  10. ok im confused… they took away the ganesha,which had a huge rupee drop, and they expect you to place the taj mahal at 1000 rupees, and just where are these rupees supposed to come from? What the freakin deuce? And yeah, I nevergot jim kaplan either, despite playing constantly…

    • Exactly what I was thinking. I need another 250 rupees to get the Taj Mahal. Now that the big rupee drop from Ganesha is not an option, where will they be coming from? 🤔

  11. My biggest complaint is the never ending events. Why is it during events if you have two buildings that get items for characters, only one building provides items? Every event, if i have two buildings i got using event currency, only one gives items, other xp and cash. It makes no sense. I also hate the way the attack/offering works now. During halloween event, frankenstein took WAY less to attack than ganesha takes for offerings! Its made it so i just dont want to try to earn him now! Four days in, and have less than 1/3 of the blessings needed. Thats rediculous. I guess i could be considered a premium player as i do buy characters for clams i want, but i am not buying blessings to get a character i have no desire for, in an event that should have never been added at this time! Give us a break from events, give players with no space more land, and it would be nice to see CHARACTERS for clams, not costumes anymore please!

  12. Ive become a hoarder in this game.. because of the lack of land i have just as many items in storage then i do in game play and that just makes me angry..WTD
    Also, im on the same page with everyone else here, the tasks take way too long and arent yeilding rewards frequent enough to get characters fast enough to complete any of the challenges..therefore i end up angry and frustrated and my game play becomes limited by the final week because…frankly im over it.

    I know tinyco is just like any other corporation, they want mulla…but things are becoming rediculous and they are becoming greedy.

    I am disabled so i have more time then most and i still cannot finish tasks…i set alarms to remind me to check my characters and yet…. i still cant finish tasks. Thats sad.. SHAME SHAME TINYCO.
    Listen to your bread and butter…. we deserve to be heard.

    • I feel you on the “hoarder” aspect. Out of curiosity, I counted all of my buildings. It was appalling to realize that I had 180 on display, and over 400 rotting away in my inventory.

      To note, my general rule is to only display content from the show (with a few exceptions for items that fit my taste). So I would actually have less than 150 “Family Guy” buildings, and around 450 “Random-garbage-that-TinyCo-thought-would-be-clever-but-really-aren’t” buildings – an astonishing 3-to-1 ratio! I don’t even want to know what the ratio would be for decorations…

      It is this kind of thing, along with the many other shoddy aspects of event gameplay, that helps me understand completely why people are ditching this game. I mean, it is quite miraculous how a fun and silly TV show has been translated into a tedious and frustrating mess.

      So I am over it as well. I am done jumping through flaming hoops of razorwire week after week just to fill my inventory. I will take anything I can earn at a casual level of gameplay, but I could give a flush for anything beyond that…

  13. The largest complaint on this site is always about the drop rates. You asked if Tinyco was listening? It seems to me that they have made them worse. Why is everything rare now? 4 days in, only 5 eyeliners to show for it. WTD??

  14. Where to start? How about having Meg and Quagmire constantly tasking for Bangles since the “event”, 10 times, which means 20 which have, so far, resulted in TWO, yes, count them, TWO Bangles…I have no idea what TinyCo considers ‘rare’, but 10 PERCENT??? WTD!!! In my mind, common is 80%, uncommon is 60%, rare is 40% and very rare is 20%…that’s logical…10% is downright insulting…as is 260 clams for a character that becomes Tan Lines fodder after next Wednesday…in the year since I’ve been playing this game (still a newbie), I have never been so discouraged…and I don’t mind spending clams if it helps, or makes it more fun, but when you feel like TinyCo is making it so hard so people have to spend clams in order to get through the event, it’s just insulting and frustrating…WTD…and now this on the heels of the horrible “Best of” event where a good amount of us were locked out of the game for 2 – 3 day…In the last hour of that event, I only needed two character tokens to earn JK, and had three character packages to open (I was saving tickets)…now, I ONLY had JK to earn (had the other characters), so with three packages, I had nine shots to get two JK tokens…I got one…out of nine!!! Come on, TinyCo, WHAT THE DEUCE!!!

    Ugh,,,

  15. I had already decided I was taking a break from the game after the Best of event if another mini-event was planned and it looks like I made a wise choice based on what I have seen thus far.

    I read complaints here about drops and have for the most part been unaffected because of my playing style in that I play a lot and make sure I maximize my collections. I don’t get everything but I get a lot freemium and I enjoy the strategizing and grinding.

    For the Best of event I collected 31 carnival packs and turned over 93 tokens yet only received 16 Jim Kaplan tokens (he was all I was collecting for), including being shut out on my final eight tries (24 building tokens). I felt these numbers to be disturbing so I sent a very polite in-game message with the results. I received a very polite response that boiled down to “luck is an important component to the game”.

    I don’t take issue with TinyCo very many times because I do get a tremendous amount of entertainment from the game for very little investment. But this response gave me pause. Luck should only have to do with WHEN you finish a task/challenge and not IF. If the game is not set up to at least allow players to be successful through average or above average play, then what is the purpose of playing it? Am I to understand that the challenge was set up in my game for me to NEVER be successful no matter how many carnival packs I collected because it was just my turn to be UNLUCKY? The event was available for just under seven days and I managed to generate almost 4-1/2 carnival packs a day. I am not sure I could have done any more than that.

    I think it is important to share this with players as they make their decisions during game play. You may NEVER complete that task or challenge because you are not meant to do so. It just isn’t your turn to complete the challenge because TinyCo has decided to affect your “luck”. I certainly will consider this the next time I am deciding whether or not to purchase that premium helper or pack of items to move me forward. That purchase may not have any bearing on my success rate because the odds have been stacked against me already. TinyCo has said so.

    • For them to say ‘luck; is involved is pretty disingenuous as they create the ‘luck’…and I get it’s a business, but something has really changed even in the year since I’ve started playing…when I started, I quickly found this site and read everything as Bunny and her team do a fantastic job…at the time, it seemed the complaints focused on TinyCo being disconnected and not responsive…that seemed to change, certainly this site has helped that, the fact they did a reddit a couple of months, and it seems they are paying more attention to their customers…and to what end, I have no idea as the events have gotten harder and more frustrating…

      I’ve always approached this game as I would any form of entertainment, if I want, I’ll spend money/clams, if not, I don’t…and to that end, TinyCo is a business, the splash screen tells you they are part of Fox, they are a for-profit entity…if they produce a product that a good percentage of their customers is willing to spend SOME money on, they make money, and the customers are entertained…

      But, the last three events have been just continuing a pattern of frustration, of not feeling like there is value in the time we spend, not to mention the money we spend…I’m not trying to be so doom and gloom (WTD, Chris?!? LOL!), but if TinyCo really is listening, perhaps they can make some changes to make the customers happier and more willing to play…

      IMHO, the best event of the year was the DC Comics event – lots of great characters, characters and items for the freemium player and lots of choices for the premium player…again, I’m not expecting a home run for every event, but a consistent model for each event moving forward would be nice…

      I decided to play the Bollywood event completely freemium to see if it’s possible to advance to an enjoyable level without spending any clams…At the halfway point of this event, I have earned both of the item-generating buildings, but only as of today…the other low-lights are 56/150 Blessings,
      5/15 Bangles and the fact I can only attack the ‘boss’ at 1X and 2X levels only as Peter and Jerome are the only characters that can earn attack items…so the chances of earning the “freemium” character and the Stewie skin are almost non-existent…

      Truly frustrating…WTD, TinyCo?

      • Whoops, just realized I had my math wrong, I clicked on Genasha initially and saw I needed an additional 94 Blessings, so I assumed out of 150, it’s actually 115, so I only have 21/115…yikes, even worse…

  16. I have been away from this game for nearly a year as my ipad2 couldn’t handle it anymore and the game would no longer load. New ipad for Christmas from the hubby and now, even tho I’m glad to be back, feel like I haven’t really missed anything. The drop rate is horrific and I have already spent the 500 clams I had from a year ago on a best of box and Brian. I havecontinued to play TO this past year and realize it is MUCH more practical as you can advance much easier. I am with the others. A task should pretty much ALWAYS yield a reward. Especially when you need large quantities to unlock and the tasks take hours.

    What is that daily free spin thingy I keep reading about since a few months, it pops up in some games, some get a daily change for free clams and coins and for some the game crashes upon use. Release it officially for everyone or get it out of the game.

    • Just a quick note:

      This comment is pretty silly if you ask me. Time and again I see players stating “don’t they ever test this before sending it out live?” This is them doing just that. They did it with the game in BETA, Clam Trex, Clam TV, Tan Lines, as well as many other features you are now using in your game not even knowing. Myself, I would prefer the testing to ensure things work properly. As far as “freebies”… think of this as… Mystery Boxes. How often does anyone REALLY get Clam rewards? Like previous events. I probably opened a HUNDRED Qbert and other various Presents… maybe got 2 Clams? Also… not a few months in release… try a few weeks. 😉

      In short… nothing really to complain about. WANT them to test things before launch, so we don’t have repeats of the game completely locked out for users for months at a time with a faulty addition (has happened before).

      When it’s ready AND it works (just ask players that got it and all it did was kick them out of their game again and again) I will do a full post on it and all the ins and outs. In mean time be happy it’s testing first. 🙂

        I was worried my comments didn’t get through anymore 😰
        Didn’t meant it as a complaint, I just hoped someone that knows more about it would read it so he/she could clarify it for me 😥
        Now I got my answer 😋

        P.S. About the Q-bert mystery box, RNG is a **** for some, I got over 30 clams from it (but then again I had way too many boxes because I have too much free time)
