Hey there Time Travellers!
Bouncing on by for a moment to try to answer the questions I’m seeing over and over in the comments. So take a peek below to see if I’ve managed answer all your queries, and if there’s anything else you’re wondering just ask me about it in the comments.
HOW LONG HAVE I GOT TO UNLOCK MRS GIANT CHICKEN?
You’ve got until the end of the Best of 2017 Event to unlock her, she’s not going anywhere before that. The event will end on 17th January @ 3pm PST (GMT +8),
But be aware if you want to see Week 2 you’ll need her unlocked before then, as she’s necessary to complete the Week 1 Questline.
SHOULD I BUY A TIER 1 RETURNING ROCKY CHARACTER?
If you don’t already have any, then YES, as quickly as possible, the 3hr chance of a Salmon drop will make a huge difference to your Red Star collecting. But please remember you need to get Blunderlips Chris to progress through the main Questline!!! So it’s not a case of choosing him or another character, you’re going need try get both ASAP.
I know this event seems real tough if your new to the game and don’t have any Rocky characters, but on the flip side for long-term premium players it’s a quiet event with little to do as we have much if the content. So for newbies just get your eye on a target and concentrate on that, you’ll get something but not everything. For players like myself who’ve got much of the content, enjoy the slower pace, enjoy the break we’ve all been crying out for.
HOW LONG WILL THE BEST OF 2017 PART 1 MYSTERY BOX STAY AROUND?
You’ve got until the end of the Best of 2017 Event to try this, it won’t be leaving when Week 2 launches. So you can wait until the last day to play this if you want!!!
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO EARN RED FLAGS IN WEEK 2?
Yes, you will. TinyCo have confirmed this but I can’t say if they will be the main currency or if a new one will come in alongside this.
WILL THE WEEK 1 ROCKY CHARACTERS WE CAN BUY/UNLOCK LEAVE AUTOMATICALLY WHEN WEEK 2 LAUNCHES?
No, they will only leave once you complete the Week 1 Questline, so if you want the Rocky content to stick around just don’t complete the Week 1 Questline Best of 2017s Past Part 7. This part will require you to put Mrs Giant Chicken on a task, Have Mrs Giant Chicken Pace, if you DON’T do this task you can delay the 2nd week launching until our live post goes up showing what is released in Week 2 so you can decide if you want to stay with unlocking the Rocky content or move on to the Week 2 returning content.
But the flip side of this is if you really want move on to Week 2 you need to unlock Mrs Giant Chicken, so plan your red flag spending wisely.
FYI Mrs Giant Chicken task Pace is just 10 secs.
WHY IS APOLLO CREED NOT BACK OR USEFUL IN THE EVENT?
He wasn’t at the event at launch but he is now, so if you’ve not got him you can buy him now for 190 clams. Or if you have have already got him get him out of storage or Tan Lines as you can use him to collect Salmon on his 3hr task Go For Sushi.
WHAT’S COMING BACK IN WEEK 2?
Well the truth is we don’t know for sure, but TinyCo gave teased it will include Kung Pow Quahog content, so have a look at the review HERE and you’ll see what was released during that event.
WILL THERE BE ANOTHER NEW CHARACTER IN WEEK 2?
I don’t know, I know the 2016 Best Of Event only brought 1 new character to our games, Jim Kaplan. So Mrs Giant Chicken may be all we will see, or then again TinyCo may surprise us with something else. All will be revealed when Week 2 launches. But my gut feeling is with Mrs Giant Chicken’s unlock necessary to access Week 2 there will be another new character or costume coming. But I could be wrong, I usually am!!!
WILL GIANT CHICKEN BE RETURNING?
I really hoped Ernie would be back freemium as I know many players still don’t have him, and how sad would it be to have Mrs Giant Chicken wandering your Quahog alone. But looks like he’s only available as part of a clam deal. That’s got my feathers in a flap for sure.
ARE TINYCO MOCKING ME?
No comment, lol.
WHY ARE MY RED FLAGS NOT SHOWING IN MRS GIANT CHICKENS UNLOCK REQUIREMENTS?
Most likely because you’ve spent them on returning content or the Mystery Box.
Hope this helps answer some of your ongoing questions, thanks to TinyCo support who despite recovering from the holiday blues got answers to many of my questions quickly. It’s appreciated!!!
