ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION

***Post is complete with this week’s information***

***The launch of this week’s event was delayed but hopefully we’re back on track***

***Please note future events will now start and end on Thursdays at 2PM PDT***


CURRENT APP VERSION

Version 1.91.0


NOTICEABLE CHANGES

For some there’s a fast forward feature to speed up tasks, to do this you’ll watch videos. I can’t give any more information as I don’t have this in my game to test, but it’s Beta and according to last week’s poll only about half of our  players have it, whether more will get it, or whether some will lose it, well we’ll need wait and see.


GLITCHES & ISSUES

The duplicate and triplicate characters glitch continues. I know I keep saying this but believe me TinyCo are working to try get this sorted.

Reappearing Questlines – if you can simply redo them, or request TinyCo remove them.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game. What I can tell you is if your device runs on 2gb of ram you may struggle with crashing, if it has less than 2gb ram it probably won’t run at all.

Few wee missing information boxes and visual oops in the event but none stop you playing.

Once you’ve placed Corey, using the store GO TO crashes my game, I’ve reported this.

QuahOg Panel (Action Studio)

Here is where you will spend the Event Currency you collect while playing the game to unlock Buildings & Decorations to use to further your game play in the Event.

Here are the items you can unlock during Week One…

Something-Con Conention Centre: Chance Drop of 2 Reading Glasses every 8hrs

Paparazzi

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Paparazzi in your Quahog. You will have to wait for them to appear before you can battle them and have one of the following characters available, Social Media Lois and/or Coreyand/or Stewie Shark.

Battling Paparazzi is similar to the battles you’ve done in previous events, there’s honestly nothing we’ve seen before. You will find the Paparazzi wandering your sidewalks, you can either find them by looking or if you have a big decorated town use the Squatter Button. When they appear,  tapping on one will bring you up the Defeat The Paparazzi screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from that screen below.

Opponent Stats:

Paparazzi: 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use to defeat Paparazzi Stats  (you can select 2):

Social Media Lois  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 40% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Corey ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Shark Stewie ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, the damage the Paparazzi does will be split across them. So if you’ve 2 characters fighting him he will hit each for 2 damage instead of 4, unless he misses or does a knockout blow then the damage will vary.

The rewards you get will depend on whether you only damage him, this is counted as a defeat, or if you fully kill him, this is a success. Remember any damage you do to her will stay until you attack him again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
Nothing

SUCCESS Payout:
15 Polaroids (Always)
1 Dislike (Always)
2 Whiskey (Always)

Cost To Battle:  Video Editor (Uncommon) –  Get from Joe Brose a Reddit, Quagmire Send A Scandalous Pic, Social Media Lois Post An Inspirational Quote, Buy From Store

Now another point worth mentioning about your character’s Health healing  it only starts to heal once it hits 0, so if you’ve 4/8 Health it will NOT go back up to 8/8 over time, it will only start to restore once you’re at 0/8. You can restore your character’s Health instantly but it costs at least 64 Clams, so I don’t advise it.


Social media maven

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Social Media Maven in your Quahog. You will have to wait for her to appear before you can battle her and have one of the following characters available, Social Media Lois and/or Coreyand/or Stewie Shark.

Battling Social Media Maven is similar to defeating the Paparazzis., she’s just tougher to defeat but dishes out higher rewards.

You will find her wandering your sidewalks you can either find them by looking or if you have a big decorated town use the Squatter Button. When she appears tapping on her will bring you up the Defeat Meg’s Double screen, which gives you all the battle information.

But I’ve simplified the information from the Attack screen below..

Opponent Stats:

Social Media Maven: 16 Health Points, 16 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use Stats  (you can select 2):

Social Media Lois  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 40% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Corey ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Shark Stewie ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, her damage will be split across them. So if you’ve 2 characters fighting her she will hit each for 6 damage instead of 12, unless she misses or does a knockout blow then the amount damage will vary.

The rewards you get will depend on whether you only damage her, this is counted as a defeat, or if you fully kill her, this is a success. Remember any damage you do to her will stay until you attack her again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
Nothing

SUCCESS Payout:
50 Polaroids (Always)
15 Cat Food (Chance)

Cost To Battle:  Dislikes (Always)  Get from defeating Paparazzi

Now another point worth mentioning about your character’s Health healing it only starts to heal once it hits 0, so if you’ve 4/8 Health it will NOT go back up to 8/8 over time, it will only start to restore once you’re at 0/8. You can restore your character’s Health instantly but it costs at least 64 Clams, so I don’t advise it.


Viral tigers

These are the little baddies this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events. Before you can clear them you’ll need to get a Cat Food, you’ll get them here:

 Cat Food (Uncommon) –  Get from Herbert Scroll Through Facebook, Bonnie Join A Subscription, Mort Make  A Sponsored Post, Stewie Shark Film A Music Video,  Clearing Social Media Maven

Once you have a Cat Food you will  will find the Viral Tigers wandering your sidewalks, you can either find them by looking or if you have a big decorated town use the Squatter Button. When they appear,  tapping on one will bring you up the targeting screen.

Then move the cat food until the green target circle is on a Viral Tiger to clear it.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 5 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing them is as follows:

Per Viral Tiger Cleared
5 Polaroids (Always)
1 Likes (Always)


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first week of the latest Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  2. For the items needed to unlock Corey, you have the glasses as rare and the cream as common. It is the opposite in the game. Also, I have received more rare creams for Corey than uncommon brushes for Lois.
