Wet Hot Quahog Summer Issues & Information

Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho, it’s off to Camp Chaos we go!!!

TinyCo have dropped a long, hot, summer kind of Event into our silly lil games and it’s stuffed full of all sorts of goodies to get us all hot and bothered.

But for some of you this event hasn’t just got you reaching for the Factor 50, it’s also got some of you coming out in hives with frustration or hunting for a microscope in order to try read the event info text on your devices, so I thought what can I do to help? How about I bring you a post that simply talks about all the issues and brings you some hopefully readable images of the information boxes for the event so far. Hopefully this will clear up some of the frustration and confusion. So that’s all this post will be, if you’re looking for anything else you’ll find more information in the following posts.

***UPDATE 7/1: Hi guys, I stockpiled a few Water Balloons over last 2 days in order I could test a theory, and please bear in mind this is JUST a theory. I basically suspected the energy meter level seemed to make the difference in whether I won or lost a Camp War, and my suspicions proved correct after I did a few tests battles. Firstly I’m battling with a L2 Camp Prankster, L2 Popular Girl, L1 Campfire Man and Scoutmaster Peter as a Leader. And I only won the tougher Streak 5 and 6 battles and started to push rival campers back towards their camps when I upgraded my energy production button to the MAX, so even although I only needed to upgrade it enough to release Campfire Man at 200 energy in the wars I continued to upgrade it, thus allowing my energy bar to fill quicker and this is what appears for me to have made the difference between being trapped by their campers in my own Camp, and pushing them back and allowing my Campers to invade their camp. On the attempts I only upgraded to the 200 energy bar, I lost, in the battles I upgraded it to Max, I won. I tested this at Streak 5 & Streak 6, and later once I’ve Water Balloons I’m going test it at Streak 7. Is it coincidence or is this the strategy you need, well I can’t say for sure but I think if you’re struggling try it yourself and let me know if it helps, I hope it does – Russian Tigger***


ISSUES, GLITCHES AND CLARIFICATIONS

VISUAL ISSUES
Ok, we’ve reported back to TinyCo that the visuals for the Camp Wars are not very clear for some of you, no there at all for others and that the Font used is causing issues in both being able to be read on some devices and that the 1 & 7 are too similar, and causing confusion. TinyCo have said they are looking at this and will be making changes to simply the Camp Wars and help ensure the visual issues are clearer, we will hopefully see that update early next week. Watch this space!!!

TinyCo have released a Video Demo to try help explain things:, does this help?

UNABLE TO BATTLE WITHOUT LEADERS
Unable to take part in Camp Wars due to needing a Leader, I myself hit this issue at Streak 3 & Streak 4, but this is no longer a problem, TinyCo have removed the necessity to have a Leader in Camp Wars, the use of the Cannon is now optional, so you can battle on whilst you unlock Scoutmaster Peter & Kid Quagmire. However remember for some of the higher streaks it will be difficult to win without the Cannon, however I managed Streaks 1, 2, , 4 with just the freemium Campers. At Streak 5 which I just won, the Cannon came in handy I must admit.

LEADER COOLDOWN
When you used a Leader in a Camp War they then went into a cool down for 8 hours, so basically you couldn’t use them in a Camp War again until the 8 hours was up. This has been decreased to 3 hours and you’ll now see a little timer icon on the Leaders icon so you know that’s why they aren’t available.

CARE PACKAGES DISAPPEARING
Still seeing reports of this, please keep reporting his to TinyCo, we’ve had no update on this issue as yet from TinyCo but we’ll keep on at them about it, but please give us all the info you can about the issue.

EVENT COUNTDOWN TIMER STUCK AT 16 HOURS
This is now resolved and the timer should be counting down until the end of the event now.

BRACES NOT DROPPING FOR KID QUAGMIRE
Braces are an extra rare drop so don’t expect quick drops on these, I have yet to see 1 drop in my game, but remember you’ll have 2 characters and eventually a building that drops these, and the task time is just 2 hours so hopefully we’ll see the drops start soon. I’ll be monitoring it in my game and obviously if the drops don’t come I’ll have Bunny bouncing on TinyCo quicker than a bear can clear a campsite.

FUTURAMA: WORLDS OF TOMORROW IS HERE SUDE QUEST WONT CLEAR
Many of you are reporting you’ve had this Questline pop up, I’m not seeing it personally, and as you’ve already installed FWOT the task to download it is not checking as complete. I’m having this brought to TinyCo’s attention and will update you when I get word of their response.

So that’s the main issues as of now, and I know there’s a lot of grumpiness over TinyCo not listening to feedback, but hopefully the above shows you we do take your issues to them and on this occasion TinyCo are responding with a fix, or a fix is impending. So keep giving us your thoughts and feedback in the comments, and if you want to vent just head over HERE.


INFORMATION BOXES

Now I mentioned above that many of you are reaching for the microscopes to try read the event info, to try help, here’s all the information boxes so far, I’ve tried keep resolution as high as WordPress allows in hope you may be able read them better here. Sorry if you still can’t.


There you have the overall information I can give you on the issues that are hampering Wet Hot Quahog Summer.

What do you think of it so far? Any tips for fellow Players? Any items you are most excited for? Any items you immediately purchased? Let us know.

  1. I can’t even finish level 5 of the camp wars, it crashes after like 10 seconds. EVERY TIME!!! And tinyco isn’t responding to my messages. So I guess this event is a waste.

  3. I always max my level but no matter what I try I cannot get past level 7 in the camp wars… I’ve tried like 5 times. Initially I was trying more of the campfire man but the last two times I’ve release more pranksters and popular girls but still cannot drive back the computer players and lose horribly..

    For those with the futurama quest and already have it installed. Just click the quest line mission to download it. It will kick u out to the store where it will show u have it downloaded already. So click open from the store, at least this is for Apple devices… I clicked a few buildings once in. Then minimized it and went back into family guy and that mission was now checked as completed. Still waiting on Bonnie to finish.

  8. Can someone help me with the camp wars.
    I fought like 10 times and only one 3.
    I have Peter for the cannon and try to level up the candy as fast as possible but the enemies are coming so fast that I lose in a minute.
    Is there any trick behind it?

      I found I win the battle when I quickly release a few Camp Pranskters to defend, then start levelling up the Candy bar, release Popular Girl, then upgrade bar to get Campfire Man in play, then upgrade Candy level to max and start releasing mixture Campers. Make sure you use Water Cannon when rivals are in red zone, but with just Scoutmaster Peter I find it doesn’t do much damage. The only thing I’ve tested is when I upgrade the meter to Max and release my campers quicker I won the battles, when I didn’t upgrade it past L3 I lost. Remember as well Popular Girl doesn’t do a lot damage so use her to defend and use the other campers in numbers to attack.

      • I does believe that I am done with this very event. If you must win strake 5 to complete this week’s questline then I am done with it. I have tryed 5 times *also tryed using your tactics as well* but the opposing team’s campers are just SO FLAMING FAST that I am always defetead almost even before I even begun to try to and fight. I even purchase Counsellor Andy when the event begin *what a waste of clams that surly was*. For me, the game is not just impossible now but also impassable. By the way, thanks for your helpfull website. This is my first time posting but I have been reading you’re posts for a long while now. I already have a few other friends who also read your posts. They are very helpfull to my friends and I who also and play this *something infuriating* game. Wished it were not so hard.

          I think there are issues with the Camp Wars as at times too many rival campers immediately run across to our Camp, before we even have a chance to do anything. I’m hoping TinyCo will make changes, as it really should be fun, and it’s not. Thanks for your kind words on the posts.

            • As far as i can see Streak 5 is impossible. I even bought the premium packages for the spandex guy, and it doesn’t matter, because you don’t survive long enough to get him out. Peter’s cannon does nothing to the guys with the cricket bat and they keep your guys from leaving your base as the tiny ones flood in.

  9. I am having a problem with the camp mess hall. I have more than enough materials to create the blob jump swimming platform but it won’t let me without using clams. I have 76 wood and 33 participation trophies. It says I require 25 wood and 3 participation trophies for the item. Yet it says I need to spend 9 clams to craft now, which I don’t want to do but this is halting my process unlocking the other mess hall items, which remain locked. I want to unlock those items, especially the next item which drops game controllers for kid quagmire. Has anyone else run into this? I have contacted Tiny Co.

    • Actually, never mind. I think the problem is a visual one that is listed on here – the one really looks like a seven! I think I have 16 not 76. That makes more sense. Sorry.

      Look closely at your Firewood number, the 1 & the 7 in the Font used for the writing in the event screens are very similar, you maybe have 16 Firewood and not 76 Firewood. Just a possible reason for it saying you needs clams.

      Let me know if this helps you win, it’s what worked for me – Levelling up the energy meter will help as not only does it allow you to release Popular Girl and Campfire Man, it sees the energy bar fill quicker, letting you release more of your campers quicker – I e won Streak 5 and 6 with L2 Camp Pranskter, L2 Popular Girl, L1 Campfire Man and only Scoutmaster Peter on Cannon, but in the wins I upgraded energy meter to MAX, and then released the hounds, I mean campers, as quick as I could. I’m going test at Streak 7 once I get 1 more balloon.

    • Make sure to synch your game with the servers before you exit (by making a quick trip to Ollieland or checking facespace). You are probably exiting too quickly.

    • This happened to me with a crash. I had just won and the screen came up for prizes for a second but then my game crashed. When I re-entered, it said I had lost. I have contacted Tiny Co. but in the meantime I am out of luck for the better amount of prizes/resources – plus it didn’t count my using Scoutmaster Peter to man the cannon in part 4 of the “the welcome to camp griffin” quest line so that didn’t advance either.

            I’d say I use more Camp Pranksters than others. The cannon I also find useless. And I agree sometimes too many rivals are right on our Camp before the battle has begun, changes are needed. I haven’t had a single Water Balloon drop since last night so I’m just stuck, although I’m thinking do I need to battle anymore or just stockpile Water Balloons incase needed for Phase 2.

  16. I am confused, I sent a report to Tinyco about this yesterday…I had maybe 3 packages that I didn’t open in time because I was busy doing something,and then when I went back, they were all gone. Are you supposed to open them in advance before the last one is done with the time and if you don’t they all disappear?

    • Hi Alex, I had the same thing happen, exactly in the way you described! It does seem that if you don’t open them before the last one is completed that you loose them…..or at least, that’s the way it happened to me.

  17. Also the issue of characters not appearing during battle. Nothing shows up when in battle, so it is unclear whether you (or the opposing side) have any players currently doing battle. Makes it so much harder to battle (especially during level 5) when you don’t know who (or how many) are currently supposed to be onscreen.

  18. I don’t know about anybody else, but both me and my GF can either not see at all or only see a couple characters in an active camp war fight. Only one or two from Camp Firewood if we’re lucky. We have both just been fighting them blind with our characters, but without being able to see them in Part 5, I fear we can go no further. 😦

  20. I have the problem of care packages disappearing too; when I try to open one, sometimes it works but half the time an error message (something about strings) appears and the game reboots. My care package is gone.

    Also not really much clue what’s going on in the battles. I tap the buttons when they light up, but it takes ages and makes little sense.

    I’m afraid this event is a wash-out, not really worth persevering. I’ve never even heard of the theme it’s based on.
