Kung Pow Quahog Is LIVE – Updated & Complete

And suddenly addicts are Kung Pow fighting, and spending resources faster than lightning. Yes, fellow karate kids, there’s a new event in town and it’s full on believe me. So let’s take a look at what Kung Pow Quahog has in store for us.

WARNING: Daniel Larusso is timed, repairing the cherry tree will activate the 7 day timer you have to unlock him. Be aware the main Questline Mojo in the Dojo Pt. 4 will direct you to the cherry tree, so if you want to delay the timer don’t complete this part of the Questline until you’re ready.

EVENT ENDS WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 15th 2017 @ 3PM PACIFIC


As a quick aside, a few weeks ago we asked you what you’d like to see on the site and you said you’d like to see the return of an event home page with links to all the events posts, anyway your wish is our command, and you’ll find it HERE. You can also access it from the addicts home page by clicking on the Dojo Peter event icon.


First up, the Basics

  • Players will need to be on the App Market Version 1.36.0 or higher in order to see the event.
  • Players will need to have at LEAST District 3 Unlocked and Al’s complete.
  • Players will only see this on the Mobile App Version (iOS, Google, Amazon, Facebook). NOT Windows Stand Alone
  • PLAY THE GAME! Items unlock in stages and as you progress, so if you do not see an item it is most likely you have not progressed far enough in the Main Questline to unlock it. Check details below for more specifics on unlock points
  • Don’t have a TON of Tasks open in your Task Menu. If you have too many open, no new ones can arrive. (Keep it under 10). If you do not see new Tasks popping up, clear out some incomplete Tasks already on your List to make room for more.

Here is another new battle, it’s similar to what we seen in the Truth, Justice and the Quahog Way event, you need to earn fight contracts and have either Walking Joe, Dojo Peter or Daniel LaRusso in order to clear Nerds. More details coming in a 101 post soon.

Depending on your combination of fighters it may take more than one attack to clear the nerd, they start with 8 health points and if you only damage him, you will see his health go down by 4 points, so he will have 4/8 health points left, when you attack again make sure you attack this nerd and not another who will have 8/8 health points.

Also so be aware your fighters will not start to heal until they reach 0 health points.


MR WASHEE WASHEE

Please note this isn’t the character unlocked in the game, but a villain to defeat in the battle arena. You will see this and Mr Washee Washee in the event area as you progress in the main Questline. It looks like this:

image

Laundry Detergents (Common): Clear Nerds

Payout:
6 Rice Balls

10X Chopsticks rewarded for rounds where you damage him but don’t fully defeat him.

Depending on your combination of fighters it will probably take more than one attack to devent Mr Washee Washee, he start with 16 health points and you need get these to 0 to fully defeat him.

Also so be aware your fighters will not start to heal until they reach 0 health points.


There you have the overall basics of the first phase of the Kung Pow Event, I’m sorry for the delay but Bunny usually covers these posts, and hasn’t been able to this time.

  1. Well, I have 2 1/2 days to get 3 more paintbrushes and defeat mister washee in order to get Daniel. Having spent 0 clams. I think it may actually be doable, and if so, then that’s a pretty good balance from tinyco as I started Daniels timer on the first day! may have to spend some clams healing peter though as hes my only fighter. We shall see!

  3. Hi Bunny and RT – I’m pretty sure I know the answer and I did look through the posts and comments to see if it had been asked and answered without seeing it…so I apologize if this was answered earlier…In the Winner’s Circle Pt. 8, the task is to, “Place the Guy Underneath the Waterfall”…since Mr. Miyagi appeared in FaceSpace as a silhouette in the “The Best Around” group as soon as I unlocked Daniel, I’m guessing he’s guy underneath the waterfall? Many times it seems the last building/item in the store on a particular page during an event is an overpriced deco, but it looks like there’s actually something there this time…I apologize again if you addressed this and I missed it…thanks!

      • HI Russian Tigger – I fought Mr. Washee Washee again to earn the 28 rice balls required for Meditation Falls…when I went to collect it (I have 30 rice balls), it also required me to pay 164 clams…so, I passed for now and messaged TinyCo to see if the 28 rice balls is a typo/error or if it also requires clams…which make me think, IF Mr. Miyagi is there, then he is premium…if not, who would pay 164 clams and 28 rice balls for a building? Anyway, and info you could pass along would be great. Thanks!

  6. Quick mr washee washee question. To unlock larusso we need to defeat the new villain washee (not the actual character) and if we already have mr washee then we won’t have to worry about collecting the 150 headbands to unlock him again? I presume that won’t even come up as an option. Just trying to figure out when to start larusso timer – was planning to do that after I got last building that drops items and right before the tweenage mutant turtles – since figure I can unlock that building within 7 days.

  11. So I won’t be getting Daniel since I triggered the timer much too early and I’m okay with that. My question is seeing as how the only real and effective way of getting belts for rice balls is through defeating nerds, and using dojo Peter alone isn’t enough to beat them, in your experience from past events, do other characters come in to help later on in the event? Or did I really just ruin any chance of moving forward in this event? I’ve accidently triggered timed characters in the past before too but can’t remember if it was detrimental to the game’s overall progress.

  12. Any info on how many Rice Mr Washee Washee battle drops? Trying to decide if it’s worth battling him yet or stick with Nerds.

  13. Questions –

    1) Does the last item (Meditation Falls) have a timer?
    2) I thought that Mr Washee Washee was a character that you unlocked as you progressed in the game. I have him already in my game. So I can not remember where I originally unlocked him? Was he from a previous event?

    Comments –

    I like the “Tweenage Ninja Tortoises”. I will add that to the Retro section of my town. For two reasons, the majority of the retro section of my town is stuff from my childhood (1980s / early 1990s). The original Turtles were always the best (😁). The second reason is that most of the stuff is based around video games (mainly Atari / NES). The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game on the NES was always one of my favourite video games when I was a kid.

    Also I knew that they would add Daniel to the game. The first thing (being the 80s kid that I am) I thought of when I first heard about this event was the Karate Kid movies. 😃

  16. What is bull with tinyco, is not the increase of belts needed but the amount of rice balls you get stays the same low number, a fair way might be like the faster you collect and exchange belts in a row that better the outpay multplier is, just like a boss character. If you don’t make exchange in an amount of time, then you start back at lowest multiple stage.

    • You will start get more white belts when you start to clear nerds, 24 for each nerd completely defeated, hence the increase in exchange costs.

    • The cost of stuff in rice balls drops too, so that helps. It takes a lot of belts to make the rice ball exchange, but the amount of rice balls needed to buy things goes down so it’s not so bad. Nerds give a lot of belts, and I’m able to do 2 attacks a day. I bought walking joe too tho.

      Does anyone know why the rice ball has a little black square on it? They look more like a half finished hostess snowballs than rice balls to me, but honestly I’ve eaten a lot more hostess snowballs than rice balls. I don’t know anything about rice balls. :/

    Liked by 1 person

  18. Ok – tested an idea that if I hold off on placing the plastered master dojo that the exchange rate for rice balls will remain low and not jump up to the 30s as many have reported. Turns out no- it didn’t matter. As soon as I traded in the belts that would have given me enough rice to place the dojo- the exchange rate immediately jumped up. So there goes my earlier plan of possibly stocking up rice for awhile until I had enough to get the other buildings. It seems this is designed to increase based on the number of exchanges you make, not whether or not you place the item. So, onward we go! Hope this helps and good luck all!👍

    • I’d think of him as a side unlock if you have extra white belts after completing what you need for this phase, I think unless you’ve bought the premium Crane or Walking Joe it will be difficult to progress this Week and unlock Daniel LaRusso if you concentrate on Mr Washee Washee, personally I’d do exchanges to try get Dojo Peter at the very least then look again at your white belt collecting. If Mr Washee Washee is available for the duration of the event you may find you build up excess white belts in the future phases just by playing through the event. But the white belts needed for exchanges climbs dramatically very quickly.

I don’t know if it’s 7 hours per 4/8 health point or 7 hours to full (8/8), but I suspect it may be 7 hours per 4/8 which would mean full health in 14 hours. That would explain what I saw, but didn’t realize it at the time. I’ll let you (and TinyCo!) if time does not heal all his wounds.

If their health is 4/8, you either have to heal them with potions or use them to fight to get their health down. It kind is makes sense since you can use them to fight even if they’re not at full health. 😊

      • Update on previous “Walking Joe Comment” and the “not healing after 7 hours problem”. I figured it out. I went ahead and used Walking Joe again for a second fight and when his health drops to zero a “heal” box and a 7hr timer pop up under his character. So therefore, he does heal after 7 hours, it just doesn’t start the “7-hour timer” until his health is at zero. Just thought I’d share this update incase anyone else had this issue. I didn’t want to use him when his health was at 4 bc I didn’t think he would win bc he wasn’t at full health, so I was waiting on his health to go back up again and it never did. And he actually will win when his health is at 4 as long as the nerds strangth is also 4. Sorry for the previous post and thank you!

Now I’m deciding if I want to try for Daniel more than I want to progress. I have a feeling that with dojo Peter the only one to fight nerds the rest of the event will be difficult.

      Well, at least my drop rate on trophies has been good and I should have dojo Peter soon.

      • The exchanges continue to go up, I’m hoping once I get Dojo Peter and start clearing nerds it will help with the white belt totals.

        • I just got a 50 white belt trade in. I hope they don’t go higher than that. Luckily I only need like 10 more rice balls to get everything. I bought Walking Joe to help with the nerds. I think that is why I am doing okay so far. How are people doing who haven’t used clams?

          • I’ve not spent any clams and I’m 2 Rice Balls away from placing the Zen Sandbox,think I’m doing ok! I think Walking Joe has been one of the better premium character costume buys

  26. I guess I’m a victim of Amazon getting the updates late again. I just did what looked like manually updating my software, but the version number didn’t change and neither did anything in the game.

  27. I’m not sure that Walking Joe’s trophy drop is always. He just finished his task and I didn’t see a drop from him, and it didn’t add to my trophy count. Should I message TinyCo? Has it been verified that it’s an always drop for him? Looks like this can be a fun event even though it looks to be a lot to keep track of. 😜 One grievance for me already is that in the fights with nerds, you can actually miss and end up not doing damage to the enemy which is a bummer. You wait for that Rare drop of a Fight Contract and when it finally does drop, you can’t be sure if you need 2 or 20 of the contracts to beat just one of the nerds. But we’ll see how it plays out. 😊

      • I know in my game, the first time walking joe completed his task for the trophy, No trophy. But since then i have received a trophy each time. I found that weird where i had paid and usually that means its an always drop. I was going to contact tiny co if it happened again but like i said it hasnt happened since. Thankfully.

    • I’ve noe fought the same nerd 3 times with Walking Joe and I’ve only managed to hit him once, with him hitting me every time. I’m sure it’s “as intended”, but it doesn’t bode well for anyone who started Larusso’s timer already even if they have Walking Joe or not. Thankfully, I’ve kind of learnt my lesson from earlier events as in I almost always check this site when I see a timer or when an event starts. It sort of spoils the surprises and mystery of going through the events, but God knows this site is a lifesaver in these events. 😃👍

    • No, I think, and this is just my thoughts, EA are BIG and maybe have a little more clout when it comes to the app stores, TinyCo don’t have that powerbase to push for their updates to be hurried up.

    In other news, I was someone whose Questlines had all disappeared. I hadn’t started Stewie’s yet, and even though it was no longer bolded in his task menu, I sent him on the 8hr task that I remembered being his 1st task – and when he was done, it triggered some dialogue & his questline reappeared! No idea about any other potential uncompleted quests, though. *shrug*

    • I’m thinking you either need to have Dojo Peter or Walking Joe for these drops to show, as they are needed to clear/fight nerds. Trying get verified.

      • Aww, that’s a bummer if true, because in many past events, I’ve been able to earn a few items before I could use them, to have a little (usually very little lol) stockpile when I begin. Alas, I don’t recall what the setup has been in the past when this was possible.

        Oh well. As long as they show up once I’m actually able to use them, I suppose it’s NBD. ☺

      • The tinyco FAQ says the tweenage mutant building drops paintbrushes but there is no logo on the item in the store indicating that it does. The buildings for the drums and wax are labeled though. Wondering if the building actually drops paintbrushes, it’s going to take a while to get that one as its the 7th building, would not be good to discover at that point that it doesn’t drop brushes 😮😆😜

  39. TinyCo, please listen: You keep making everything far too ridiculously overcomplicated! This is supposed to be fun, not frustrating. (That’s right: Frustrating. The term ‘challenging’ doesn’t enter into this discussion at all.)

    1) Character tasks to earn A.
    2) Use A on X to get B.
    3) Use B to buy C (but C will cost a random amount of B, so good luck there)
    4) When you have enough, use C to buy D1-8 (but only in the predetermined order, no strategy or thought allowed).
    5) Use a few of D to earn E-type items (but only a few because half of D will be useless and immediately put into storage because there isn’t enough land available to display it)
    6) Use E-type items to earn a character or outfit.
    7) Use new character or outfit on Y to earn F.
    8) Use F and new character or outfit to perform goal (?) with Boss Z to earn more C.

    Looking over all of that, I will say, at least step 8 didn’t result in another new ‘currency’ G.

      • You would think that with the thousands of apps available, updating them isn’t done centrally by amazon, facebook and google, but through the developers themselves? I can’t imagine there being thousands of amazon people just updating individual apps on the shop when they receive these updates from the developers? Every other amazon shop system is updated directly by whoever it is who is selling stuff on it, so I’m sure it’s the same with the apps stores.

        • App updates are released by developers but the App markets don’t make them live until they’ve done checks, or else a rogue developer could release anything into their systems.

            Or maybe they auto release most of them and just hold back some where they don’t trust the developer. So not surprising that TinyCo gets held back then 😀

It’s frustrating but I’m not sure there’s anything TinyCo can do, they don’t have the power of EA or such to push the app stores, they literally are a small fish in a big sea of developers.

Also when exchanges are involved I never complete the Questline until I know what next phase will bring, been caught in the trap of being too up to date and unable do any exchanges in the past.
