Where Are You Now – Wet Hot Summer Quahog Phase 3

Hey there Campers!!

Figured with all the comments still flying around about Camp Wars and a lack of drops I’d gather some info to get an idea of not just what you’re thinking about the event but more importantly how we’re all doing.

I know you’ve just completed a few other polls, but hope you won’t mind another as believe me this information is very useful  to share with TinyCo, so they can visually see just how the Players are getting along in the Event so far.

Please take a few minutes and fill out all the information that applies to you in the Poll. There are quite a few questions and I’m sorry you need to answer them separately, but it really shouldn’t take you long. Just remember to tap VOTE after each answer you select. I will be closing the poll down in 24 hrs so please complete it ASAP.

The results will show and update as players answer, so it will also let you gauge where you are compared to others.

Thanks as always and feel free to leave any other helpful feedback or thoughts in the comments. And of course if your feeling like me, a bear with a sore head, you can vent it out in the What The Deuce post HERE.

  1. When it comes to battles freezing or crashing, I found that if i make sure the water cannon character is definitely out of storage, it works ok. If the character is in storage, even though you can select them, the game crashes after about 20 seconds

  2. I have had lois and Mort working nonstop on clipboards for 6 days, Ben for 3 days and the building for 2 days and only at 6 of 15 with 1 day left. Collected at least 6 times a day with mostly no luck. Pretty much got everything else, but throwing in the towel on Susie as it is not going to happen. At this point 9 in 1 day would be a miracle.

        Close to upgrading the Jock to level 4 though, so if I can get past 11 and then lose a few (assuming 12 will be worse), then maybe.

    • I need 8 pianos and only have 9 hours left, and can’t get past 11. I got everything else, without even getting all of the buildings! Have tried it at least 10 times. This was ridiculous. First time I have not obtained a character I have sought. I even spent clams, and they did nothing. I refuse to purchase her, in fact, I refuse to spend anymore clams on characters. I may just go straight freemium after I spend off the ones I currently have, because after the last few events, this may be the one that will break me of my “addiction.” If I do not get Brian, I will definitely call it good.

        I needed 6 pianos and was stuck at Streak 12, so I just used up my Water Balloons losing 3 times to get the 6 pianos I needed – is that an option to get them down, just losing. If you’ve some balloons or time to gather some. Camp Wars aren’t used in the final phase so using up balloons this way won’t impact you.

  4. Still at Phase 2… and in a slump. I’m still at Battle of the Bulge Part 6, with 65 wood so far instead of the 200 required for the hot dog eating contest thing, and terrible drop rates as I have only won ONE battle streak in four days. I’m not giving up yet, but I don’t think I’ll manage to unlock Great Outdoors Joe.

      Agreed I haven’t saw a hot dog or a card to upgrade all star athlete (one litterally one is holding me back) since week 3 started after they gave the hot dog bonuses. Right now with these 2 factors and the fact they are keeping me back from getting joes costume I do no see myself unlocking him by the end of the event. I’ve kept the cook pranking the entire time this week and have gotten 2 care packages to drop one gave me all water balloons.

  8. I’ve only gotten 3/15 on the clipboards for Director Susie and it’s very hard with three days remaining. Even with Lois, Mort, and the building all working together, I still get nothing and there’s nothing I can do about it because of it. That’s the worst. The pianos are alright I guess, I’m half way done with that, but if anything, the pianos and the clipboards are the most troublesome.

      • I’ve had Ben for a couple of days, and had Mort and Lois on it pretty constantly since I initially started her timer (5 days ago), and got the building a day and a half ago.

        I have 3 total, with less than 2 days to go. Apparently they made them epic drops and require 15 of those. It’s a good thing I don’t really care if I unlock her, or I would be more upset about this.

    Hi Bunny – how can I upgrade my All-Star Athlete to lvl 3 when I’m in Phase 3? The only way I can get Standard Care Packages is from sending Gene to prank, but he never drops them or hot dogs. I still need 5 more cards to upgrade her so I can claim Joe’s achievement.

      I’m afraid Camp Pranks is the only way to get the Standard Care Packages, and yes the drop is horrendously random. The only other way to get the Cards is again through taking chance on Premium Care packages. It’s not a good way they’ve done this, I’ve other campers and bought the premium Stewie costume and I’m stuck as can’t get All Star Athlete cards

    • This is my exact problem too. Poorly designed by Tinyco.

      And it’s near impossible to get Susie the Director. 12 hours left and I can’t even beat level 11 on the camp wars because of needed upgrades. 4.5 hours on each box = insane.

      • They did this intentionally because they want people to spend clams to unlock her before the timer runs out. Unfortunately for them, they’ve set the Piano goal so high that it would probably take the majority of players 500+ clams to unlock her so most people probably wont (or shouldnt) do it.

  10. just remembered as well, on Friday I had to contact TinyCo because I lost all my Standard care packages. I had 13 that i managed to build up from the last round of battles and doing some pranks but i wasn’t bothering to open them because i was focusing on the Fancy care packages to drop stuff for this phase. anyways, i open TQFS app Friday afternoon on whilst in the train and noticed that my 13 care packages had gone. so i messaged them telling them they’d disappeared and could i have them back. few days later i got a seemingly standard response that basically said
    “we apologize… working through heavier than normal support volume… we have released various fixes over the past few days… please note support is not a live chat and expected response times can vary between 1 to 5 business days”

    so they basically fobbed me off and i still haven’t got my 13 packages back

        and seeing as camp wars are effectively useless in phase 4 theres really no point in trying to get as many cards as i can to progress in camp wars

      • You know, there’s really no excuse for having an up to FIVE (5!!!) DAY waiting period for support replies WHEN YOU HAVE TIMED PORTIONS OF YOUR EVENTS!!!

        And it’s not even up to 5 days for a support response – IME, I’ve waited 5 days (on more than one occassion, mind you) before getting ANOTHER auto-reply asking if my problem has been resolved yet, because my question/ticket is apparently still active/pending! ARGH! So infuriating!

        Seriously though – how can you take up to 5 days to respond to customers when you have tasks/quests that are only open for 7 days? So, if something happened with 3 days left on my timer, it’s basically been “too bad, so sad!” from TinyCo. Which…does not endear them to me, or make me want to give them any more of my money, which presumably they do want…

        *ahem*

        Finally beat Streak 6, now stuck on Streak 10. I have just over 3 days remaining on my Susie timer (got all the bldgs before I started it) & it might be doable. Maybe.

        My Pranking has been miserable, even with exploiting the, uh, exploit (?? not sure what else to call it lol). I have had multiple occasions of 30+ attempts at trying to get Okay *AND* Standard Care Packages without.a.single.drop. I have a life to live, so I eventually would give up upon receiving Water Balloons or Badges, but when Pranking is the SOLE METHOD of continuing to level up certain characters, it should NOT take 30+ tries to do so.

        I’ve mentioned before that I actually really like the idea of these Camp Wars, but the execution is T.E.R.R.I.B.L.E!! 😢

  12. I’m in phase 3 finally after getting stuck in the last phase. Two of the biggest issues for me are the Eating Contest badges and Clipboards for Susie. I need EC badges for 2 buildings now – camp showers (to help unlock Ben and progress in the questline) and Secret Snack Stash (to help unlock Joe). I need a total of 19 EC badges. I can’t get them from the standard packages anymore because I’ve progressed to phase 3 and I have had one drop of badges from the pranks in 2 weeks! So for the pranks, I need the tokens but I’ve had to take Mort off the task for tokens to get clipboards which have only dropped once in 3 days! This is entirely impossible – I need more ways to get badges and less time on opening the packages to even stand a chance!

  13. IDK if it’s just me or whatever but it feels like sometimes this game is rigged. I am like close to unlocking Susie and now barely getting the needed requirements. The drop rates are horrible and the amount needed is a bit excessive. Why bother putting a character on a timer if they’re just gonna slow down progress just as completion is within reach? It’s like they see how well you’re doing without buying clams and decide to mess things up so you’ll be forced into buying them. As nice as this game is at times, it’s a real money grabber and totally not worth it in my opinion. Still enjoy the show from time to time but this game not so much.

  15. I’ve found a new glitch (which sucks). My game is not recognizing part 7 of the upgrade questline or my upgrade. This is the upgrade to beat camp war 10. When I choose the campwar icon on the lower right side of the screen – it highlights part 6. When I select the questline directly it has part 7. I’ve upgraded to meet the recommendations in part 7 but the questline did not move forward. I’ve also tried 4 times to beat camp war 10 (3 with the recommended upgrade) and lost dismally every time. I think the game thinks I havent upgraded.

    I have the latest update, closed out and re-entered, and visited Ollieland. Nothing’s changed this. Will reach out to Tiny Co.

    p.s. I have the hardest time typing comments here – keyboard seems delayed/freezes. Almost has a mind of its own. Don’t have this issue anywhere else. Anyone else have this?

      Well a few weeks ago I asked what posts readers wanted to see, and there was a resounding response to keep these, not just for feeding info to TinyCo but also by players saying it lets them gauge where they are at in relation to others. And as you say changes do get made, albeit I agree they need to be quicker. However remember there is no pressure on any reader to do these, polls are optional, so skip them if you don’t think they are worthwhile.

    • dont spend (waste) clams on people just to get them on the cannon. in my opinion the cannon guys are useless.
      i used the water cannon in the last phase about 5 times in a single battle against the fatties and i still got owned every time. now i dont even bother adding anyone in to use the cannon and it hasnt made a difference to my progress.

      best strategy i’ve found is to just build up and save water balloons until you’ve opened as many care packages as possible to try and level up characters. if u run out of packages and have to do a battle just expect to get beat, you’ll still get a package which might help.
      once or twice i’ve even won a battle purely on speed of tapping because a few of my fire guys got to the other end before theyd even sent out a single person to fight. then when they did send people out the battle was like 2 steps from their end so it seemed to make it easier

    • Exactly. They need to get rid of the randomised crap ASAP. Everything should be an “always” drop and we can actually enjoy the game. If they want to slow us down just make them longer tasks i.e. 8/12/16/24 hours. At least I know that if I have 7 days to collect 10 items using 12 hour tasks then I should be able to achieve it in 5 days. If I’m going to be busy then I can rush some tasks with clams knowing *with certainty* that rushing it will give me the item I need. I’ve rushed things in the past and still got a fat load of nothing. The entire “chance drop” model just sucks all of the joy out of the game

  26. Drop rates for Susie are ludicrous. I waited to repair the camp until I had all the necessary buildings. Now three days in, I only have 5 of 15 clipboards and 3 of 9 dance steps. Masks are almost done, but pianos are slow going because balloons are not dropping like they were earlier and I can’t get any upgrade cards from packages to advance in the Camp Wars streaks. It’s like TinyCo wants to aggravate us.
