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. And now finally they’ve dropped the much-needed update into our stores!
So head over to your App Store, Play Stire, whatever and update to the latest version, it’s 1.50.1 and hopefully it will sort out some of the issues I’ll talk more about below. And a MASSIVE thanks to everyone who shared tips, advice, glitch info with us in the last few days, believe me when I say I appreciate it very much.
And maybe the most important quick link of this event to date – WHAT THE DEUCE!!!
ISSUES, GLITCHES AND CLARIFICATIONS
VISUAL GLITCHES & CRASHING
Ok, I just updated and then immediately won Streak 8 Camp War, I had no crashing and the visuals seemed fine, but the issues with this have been coming and going so I can’t say if I just got lucky or whether TinyCo have made some permanent fixes. Time will tell, as will what you report back in the comments.
However they have not fixed the font issue so be mindful the 1 & 7 are very similar, so if you think you’ve enough of something it might be due to you reading 75 as 15 or such.
With regards to Crashing, I just played through a Camp War with no issues, but I wasn’t having the same crashing issues others reported so it’s hard to say if that is resolved, maybe those who were experiencing the issue can tell us if this update has helped in the comments.
TinyCo also released a Video Demo to try help explain things a few days ago and I’ll post it again here for those who may have missed it.
CANNOT WIN CAMP WARS
Hard to know if they’ve made changes to this, I’m thinking possibly something as my Streak 8 battle lasted a long while, rather than me simply being overrun and defeated in seconds like my previous attempt. Put it this way I was able to use my Water Cannon 8 times and I won the battle. So it could be they’ve tweaked something or it could be I got lucky. Now some of you are stuck at Streak 5, my advice is look down the comments in the Camp Wars post, you’ll find a Quick Link to it above, a few players have shared successful strategies, try them, unfortunately due to the random nature of the game there isn’t a strategy that works for everyone, but there’s a few there in the comments for you to try. Kid Quagmire seems to make a difference as suddenly the Water Cannon actually works with him but I know some of you need to win battles to get buildings that drop for him, so not a lot help. But I’m also finding more and more using just the Camp Pranksters and Popular Girls, with maybe 1 or 2 Campfire Men and upgrading the energy meter to max is working for me. Remember to think about Defence – Popular Girls, Attack – Camp Pranksters/Campfire Man & Water Cannon. Defending can be the key to getting time to build attackers so use Popular Girls to try hold the rival campers back whilst you build your attacker numbers. And if you’re also attempting the Weekly Challenge once you push the rival campers into their own area don’t rush to finish, instead slowly defeat them in order you can use your Water Cannon a few more times. Also bear in mind to complete this weeks main Questline you only need to defeat up to and including Streak 5. So don’t panic if you’re reading about players being at Streak 10 and thinking I’ll never manage that.
WATER BALLOON DROPS
I don’t know if it’s due to the update or Weekly Challenge dropping last night but I’ve seen a significant improvement, I got 5 out of the last 6 drops, whereas in the 24 hours before I got 2 water balloons total. Hope others see the same improvement.
CARE PACKAGES DISAPPEARING
Happened to me again yesterday but TinyCo have said the update will resolve this issue. I’m testing it as we speak. However I’m still using my in-game support to request they credit me the packages I lost, I urge others to do the same. Just pushing a fix isn’t enough when players have lost valuable resources like these.
ABILITY TO PURCHASE MULTIPLE TALKING MIXED VEGETABLES
This is not resolved with the update, so be careful if you’re buying the final Camp Mess Hall prize, the Arts & Farts & Crafts Cabin, as when you go into the Camp Mess Hall the Talking vegetable Can is still there after you’ve purchased it, and that’s what you default on to, so be careful you don’t buy another one of these rather than the last item. Personally as it’s not required I’ve held off buying the Arts & Farts & Crafts Cabin until I see what’s coming next.
BRACES NOT DROPPING FOR KID QUAGMIRE
Braces are an extra rare drop so don’t expect quick drops on these, They came slowly but surely in my game.
FUTURAMA: WORLDS OF TOMORROW IS HERE SIDE QUEST WONT CLEAR
Many of you are reporting you’ve had this Questline pop up, and you cannot complete it as you already installed the game. Well I just got the task this morning and cleared it by tapping Go on the download task, this took me to my App Store where it showed I already had the game so I opened the game straight away through my App Store and this cleared the task for me, I can only verify this worked on IOS.
There you have the overall update 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.
