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.
And maybe the most important quick link of this event to date – WHAT THE DEUCE!!!
***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
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.
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.
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.
