  1. OK WTF, I just lost about 1000 clams for some reason. I didn’t spend them on anything, speeding up stuff or buying things. They’re just gone. Ad-clams and Jesus-clams and prize clams and such. I’ll send a support ticket, but they tend to ignore tickets from people who haven’t spent actual cash on the game, which I haven’t.

  2. Terrible event that I gave up on after finishing the 2nd week.
    Too much overlap on crafting materials
    Terrible drops
    Real money for the crafting materials that won’t drop
    ALF mystery box
    Ace Ventura $$$
    Lost in Space Robot $$$
    Too many steps to unlock characters (chance drop for this which clears that which gives a chance drop for that which can be used for 1 of 3 things oh and you need 2 of each to do anything with it)

    UGH.

    • I also really with there was a “not interested” option for the special offers. They get to where they clog up my quest list and of course they put those above the stuff I’m actually trying to do.

  3. There are a lot of valid serious complaints, but one minor one that I didn’t even notice until today but is bothering me…

    Why is the spaceship toy needed for fantasy screenplays and the dragon toy needed for sci-fi screenplays?! Shouldn’t it be the opposite?

  4. I keep waiting for new event mechanics or at least the return of very old ones (that seem to have been scrapped) that are actually ‘fun’ to play. Adding new districts appears to have been eliminated. They don’t return to or add to past elements that were set up for it; Stewie bucks and Daily Quests are essentially pointless, Madame Claude portal, making Spin ‘n Win worth doing. Events and new characters are going non-FG related. Over 30M coin is useless. 3k clams yet I refuse to pay 200+ for pretty much anything that is useless immediately (except I would for Mickey McFinnigan and O’Brian that they apparently refuse to add)……. Nope, just lazily reskin these ‘four hour reset events’ over and over. “fun”

  5. WTD, this is the first time I can remember that I wouldn’t be able to win the bonus clams offered in unlocking a character before the time limit. I’m a premium player and couldn’t manage, let alone those freemium players – I wouldn’t wish to be in their shoes at the moment :S

    This event really stinks and I can’t be more glad in seeing it gone.

    Looks like Tinyco/Jam City are seeing the player base is drastically decreasing and so they’re adopting various techniques in sucking dry those remaining players to compensate for all this:

    * by charging real money for a couple of extra “bonus” crafting items

    * by charging real money for the usual clam-dropping, monthly-long building like we used to have in other events which used to always cost clams

    * by having extremely long crafting times so that we speed up crafting times using clams before the timer on the boss battles end

    * to add insult to injury, besides long crafting times, items required for crafting (espcially for week 3) are extremely scarce so they have buildings that cost clams to drop these said items to make us players feel forced into purchasing them in order to keep up and not lag behind

    * previous mystery boxes (the food themed event and sherlock holmes mini-event, if I’m remembering well) had a nice feature in which by the 4th try you are 100% guaranteed in receiving the featured full character. Seems like they are going back to their origins in removing this new feature by continuously spending in the mystery box without any limits until the player finally receives the featured full character in the box. In fact where before it would’ve cost me 250 * 4 = 1000 clams, in this event for ALF my luck was hopeless and it had cost me 2000 clams in trying!!!

    Seriously Tinyco/Jam City, WTD!!! Seems like you’re going backwards and not progressing forwards. This event surely pissed off lots and lots of your loyal players, including myself. Are you shooting yourselves in the foot to destroy this game once and for all?!? >_<

    • Nailed it. This is the first event I have ever just straight up given up on, mainly for the reasons you listed. As a primarily freemium (mainly just use clams to speed up tasks) it was downright painful.

    This event is a major grind. Super hard. Money grubbing. Terrible drop rates. Nigel. Swords. Never!. Dr. Hartman. 8 Hours Nuthin’. Over & Over. Hate the new Lost In Space. So don’t care about those characters. Got me Spinal Tap. I’m good. Oh, it would have been nice to score Red Hot Lois without hitting the mystery boxes which I NEVER do.

  8. Totally bottlenecked.
    Can’t get past 2x on either the collector or the producer, because the items take so long to create when they’re in the same queue.
    Then throw in the 15 homework’s that need making too = 22.5 hours taken out of production time…. .
    Will take more than 3 days to make Will Robinson’s danger zone. i.e. no finishing on time this week……

  9. WTD – I’ve given up this event because every day im falling further and further behind. I’m still in Week 2, can’t get enough keys to craft Skinny Jeans and Pink Ties to unlock David so I’m at the point, like another player has said, where it’s just not fun anymore. No fun = no motivation or desire to play.

    I’ll keep checking in with the site but I’m probably not gonna re-visit the game until the event ends in 9 days (at the time of posting this)

  10. I know it has been mentioned elsewhere but why when collecting memorabilia does it always go to the item that you have the least of, especially when you get to requiring 5 or more and sometimes even 3

  11. Not even halfway through Week 2, so I will be a full week behind…TinyCo/Jam City has completely lost players (IMHO) over the last four events, I refuse to spend good money and clams after bad, yes, I have clams, yes, I have spent money in the past, but ONLY when I feel I am getting value and having fun…the game is supposed to be entertainment, and many players view this game as part of their entertainment budget, which is very discretionary spending…once players get frustrated, no longer see value or most importantly, STOP HAVING FUN, they will quickly stop spending money, clams, and most importantly, time playing this game…there are plenty of other places to spend money and time…again, JMHO…

    For me, the ultimate insult was making the drops terrible from the beginning, then offering game currency for CASH, really?!? Then, when they realized the anger that caused, they quickly invented little tasks to drop a small amount of currency, gee, that’s so big of you, TinyCo/Jam City…the damage has already been done…

    I really like this game, I have time, money and clams invested, I’m not giving up yet, but I have completely turned off the tap, I spend money when I feel like I am having FUN and when I see value, both of those are completely gone right now, I don’t care about the characters in these last few events, so if I get them, great, if not, so be it, I have better use for my time and money…

    I’m not trying to be so negative, but WTD, TinyCo/Jam City??? Remember, HAPPY players spend clams, unhappy players go away, freemium players are potential premium players, so if you make it hard for them, your potential cash base shrinks quickly…how hard is this to understand?

    And to make matters worse, every other Comicon nerd cleared crashes the game, seriously, TinyCo/Jam City?!? WTD???

  12. I’ve been trying to beat the Crab Boil Pt. 4 (Create the Nude Professor Outfit) for months. All the things needed are check marked, except for the towels. I can’t get past the “Overexposed” mission. I have to be at level 35 to beat it, but am unable to. Most of my characters are at level 50-60. This is ridiculous.

  13. What I think is really stupid is how they decide what items will drop from the buildings you get from Exhibit Hall. Will Robinson’s Danger Zone drops the toy rockets you need to help you unlock the Will Robinson character. Okay, after having to collect 200 stickers to get the Cosplay Spray Booth, 225 to get the Cardboard Castle, and with 350 needed for the Jupiter 2 (I’m at 109, still a LONG way to go), plus another 150 for the Chariot, then you have to collect another absurdly high 350 for the Danger Zone. Meanwhile, I’ve already got 6 of the mere 15 toy rockets needed thanks to Dr. Hartman. At the rate he’s going, I’ll have no need for the Danger Zone by the time I have the Jupiter 2 and the Chariot, except for the fact that you’ll no doubt need to place the Danger Zone before you can proceed to Week 4! WTD?!

    They need to have buildings and characters drop items when you actually need them, not after they’re useless to you.

  15. This isn’t actually a complaint, but an update on an old WTD–that building behind Nigel Tufnel/David St. Hubbins/Will Robinson that only showed gears on Facebook is now appearing. At least it’s there on my Facebook version right now.

  16. RT, you didn’t drop one of your own. Very zen. I must try that. For me, I look at my game Wednesday evening when the next evolution starts and there are extra characters roaming my game, I can see from your posts what characters will be dropping things yet I cannot begin stockpiling. Then when TC/JC decides to start “helping” me finish things, they do so half-arsedly, it takes TWO passes per old item to create them, I need passes you stupid, oh, well, here’s more raw materials I’ll never get to use because there are no passes.
    And a kicker, for what I am hoping is the last challenge, trade with the dude 5 times. So that’s another 24 hours plus to be able to round back since it is fairly impossible to guess which item he is going to want which multiples for.
