  1. I didn’t see the usual Frida/Saturday premium character offering…. Was one made and I missed it somehow? or was it the Rock Stage Clam thing?


  2. In these past few events, Tinyco seem to be choosing rather obscure and unknown characters to have in our town. I’ve never heard of “True Grit” (for the western event) and never heard of Spinal Tap, to mention a few examples. I was expecting better comic-con celebrities similar to what we had in 2014, such as Liam Neeson, Conan O’Brien or Gilbert Gottfried.

    To add insult to injury, buildings nowadays are totally uninspiring, boring to look at and extremely tiny compared to the buildings they used to have in the beginning years of this game. Decos are almost non-existent as we’re having 1-2 decos available to purchase throughout the entirety of a month long event.

    In conclusion, overall, these past few events (including this):
    * are a total rehash of one another, no new gameplay is ever brainstormed to be introduced in an event nowadays – just a ‘rinse and repeat’ approach one event after another;
    * buildings & decos are extremely downgraded in quality when compared to the events we had in 2014-2016;
    * uninspiring, dull and obscure characters to choose to have in our game when better, more well known characters could have been chosen instead – who ever heard of True Grit and Spinal Tap?!?
    * feels more and more of a chore to keep on playing. I just continue to play and invest my time in this for the sake of just because I wouldn’t like to “throw away” over 4 years of gameplay time in this + I had forked out my real money to buy clams and wouldn’t want them to go to waste that’s all.

    It is very evident that the creative team who had worked on your 2014-2016 events are all long gone and were substituted by totally new ones. Seriously Tinyco, is this the best you can come up with nowadays unknown characters, ugly buildings/decos and repetitive gameplay?!?

    I’m sure you can come up with better ideas. You may start by reading RussianTigger’s post of “Tell TINYCO what you want, what you really, really want!!!” as a starter 😉

      QFS is fairing a little better than their other game, FWOT, we’ve had no new content in almost 2 months there. But your points are all very valid


    • I’m old and grew up on metal music, so know all about Spinal Tap, for me that movie was hilarious.
      I also just keep playing the game because the years of time and past money I have invested. The fun factor is long gone, just pure frustration now.


  3. WTD, why Spinal Tap?


    • Well, “Derek Smalls” just put out a solo album, and some of these sci-fi/comic cons DO get past members of bands like Twisted Sister (Jay Jay) or KISS (Ace, Peter, Vinnie) from time to time, so it probably made sense to someone at Jam City.


  4. So about three years ago when I started playing this game. I’d do whatever I could to keep it going. About 8 months ago I realized things started going downhill. Lagging, 20 minute load up w/errors, connectivity issues with full service. Then a few months ago TinyCo basically sells out…….I went into the shop. The x14 claim drop buildings would always give you a buttload of clams if you bought within the first week of availability. Well it just popped up in my game to buy, not for clams for cash. I can but more clams for cash than I would get collecting from the building every day……not saying I’m gone from the game because I’m already in too deep to stop now. But come on Devs, you gotta keep up with the demand. I contribute and donate some of the paycheck, but don’t make it so we’re wasting more money than time. I’m sure there’s others who have bought this without realizing. If anyone has bought this as of yesterday shorted themselves.

      Here with Clam prices in U.K. the Rock Stage would make me more Clams if I collected timely, but I won’t buy it on principal. Clams are the premium currency, I don’t like the way this game and other such as a Tapped Out are making $$/££ etc another seperatecpremium currency. Just my thoughts


  5. How common is common? Had Chris do his 4 hr task and yet I had one napkin drop in five tries! Rare items drop faster, what’s going on? Close to deleting the app!


    • RussianTigger

      All drops seem random I’m afraid


    • I’ll go even further – drops were better at the beginning of the event, but as soon as TinyCo started offering game currency for cash, the drops got terrible for me…granted, the old saying of don’t attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence (i.e., not actually applying the proper statistical algorithms to each item) may apply, but I’m old and cynical and it really seems TinyCo/Jam City has jumped the shark and it’s all about the cash now…

      I used to play mid-premium as I liked to get ahead at times, manage the challenges, but I’ve become too discouraged by the last four events to care about spending money or any of my clams…three days ago, the Peter costume was at a 98 clam buy level with about 6 items to go, I figured I’d have him in a day, now he’s a 30-something clam buy with two items to go…yes, I can afford the clams, but I’ll be darned (hey, it’s a family site!) if I’m spending good clams after bad, if I don’t get him for another week, I don’t care, TinyCo/Jam City is sucking the fun out of this game…

      As others have said, I’m not leaving the game as I enjoy it and have a lot invested (time and clams), but the way I play and the enthusiasm for the game is much more tempered and guarded…

      The inclusion of Jam City seems to have been the turning point – there was actually a time in the last year that it seemed TinyCo listened to us and started to follow the RT Rule – happy players spend clams, unhappy players leave…and they seem to have forgotten that freemium players are potential premium players and premium players can soon change their spending habits as soon as they no longer see value…

      WTD, Jam City?


  6. Loading time on android, amirite? Can take almost 4 minutes so I spend more time waiting then playing. I can accept that all games have glitches and uninteresting content at times but . . . ladies and gentlemen, I beseech you (been a long time since i beseeched anyone so I couldn’t help but grasp this opportunity – Jam City, consider yourself beseeched)


  7. I still can’t clear nerds. Crashes my game every time. They said they pushed a fix, I restarted my phone multiple times, done force close, nothing works.

    Without badges can’t make any progress at all.

    Probably going to be the final straw.


    • RussianTigger

      The resolved glitch was the Nerds not showing, not crashing when clearing them. If you’ve saved the game I’m afraid I can only suggest a fresh install, and storing items to make sure game has enough memory.
