Social Media Week 2 Overview

A whole lot of networking has come to Quahog in the Social Media event.


EVENT ENDS

Wednesday 11th September 2019 at 2PM PDT

***Please note the new 2pM PDT finish time***

This is a 3 week event!!!

You can see the countdown timer for the event and other details by clicking on the Event Info Icon at the bottom of your screen.


ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION

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

***The launch of this week’s event was delayed again***

***Please note future events may now start and end on Thursdays at 2PM PDT, however I’ll warn you when this is implemented by TinyCo***


My thoughts on the recent rinse and repeat of events

***I know some of you long time players are getting frustrated with recycled game play and events following set formats that are randomly repeated with new content.

Also I get your annoyance with reusing materials/content that doesn’t fit the new event, I get it, a prime example is the karate fighter from a previous event being used as the Instagram Model, I agree that it doesn’t work.

But it is what it is I’m afraid.  The game is old in the world of mobile gaming and this ability to recycle content is probably one the reasons the game continues.***


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.

Clam award loop.

Event buildings are sometimes locked for random players, only TinyCo can fix this so let them know.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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.

Theres quite few visual and written errors that don’t effect play.

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

If you get Gamer Bonnie her Questline auto-completes without you doing anything.


HOW TO CONTACT GAME SUPPORT

There’s 2 ways to do this, The first and best way is through your game main menu, select Help & Support and  then tap ‘Contact Us’.

However if this isn’t possible, then you can contact support via email, remember to give them your PlayerId in any contact. The email address to use is – support@jamcity.com

Instagram model

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Instagram Model 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, Shark Stewie and/or Crazy Stunt Peter and/or Social Media Lois and/or Gamer Bonnie.

Battling these is similar to the battles you’ve done previously. You will find them  wandering your sidewalks. When they appear,  tapping on one will bring you up the Defeat The Instagram Model screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from that screen below.

Opponent Stats:

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

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

Shark Stewie  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs
Social Media Lois  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Crazy Stunt Peter ~ 4 Health Points, 8 Damage Hit, 30% Chance knockout, Heal time ??hrs
Gamer Bonnie ~ 8 Health Points, 8 Damage Hit, 20% 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 Instagram Model 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 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:
5 Cat Food (Always)
1 Controversial Photos (Always)
1 Fan Mail (Always)
2 Gaming Mouse (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.


Meme girl

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, Corey and/or Shark Stewie and/or Crazy Stunt Peter and/or Gamer Bonnie.

Battling her is similar to Battles we’ve done before, she’s just tough to defeat but dishes out higher rewards.

You will find her wandering your sidewalks. When she appears tapping on her will bring you up the Defeat Meme Girl, which gives you all the battle information.

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

Opponent Stats:

Meme Girl: 18 Health Points, 12 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

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

Crazy Stunt Peter ~ 4 Health Points, 8 Damage Hit, 30% Chance knockout, Heal time ??hrs
Gamer Bonnie ~ 8 Health Points, 8 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs
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:
4 Gaming Mouse (Always)
15 Cat Food (Chance)

Cost To Battle:  Controversial Photos (Always) –  Get from clearing Instagram Model

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.


Paparazzi

You still need to battle Paparazzi to help get Autographs to unlock Crazy Stunt Peter.

Here’s the basic info for this week.

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

  3. I did the social media bundle and added the Social Media Consultant. But he has disappeared from my game twice now. I’ve even started the quest line for him and he no longer appears in my game. I’ve emailed support twice now.

    • They need do individual game fixes for this, so give them another day to get back to you, if not message again, I’ve had messages they are starting fix this in other players games

  4. Bonnie is available in my game for 270 Clams in a separate offer.

  5. Seems easy enough this week. Not even two days in and I’ve gotten 3 buildings unlocked already. I have never had the clam task speedup thing in my game, so this is just with the core characters (I did buy shark Stewie in week 1 though).

    • I disagree – this week is beyond brutal due to insanely poor laptop drops. I only unlocked the 3rd building (chopper) a few hours ago, and I’ve been using the speedup task as much as possible. It seems that I can only do 1 attack per day with the hefty 3 laptop requirement, and with the ninja dudes take 2 attacks to defeat i.e. 6 laptops. You’re only finding it easy as Shark Stewie is conserving your laptops, as the rest of us need twice as many laptops as you. It’s probably going to take me 3-4 days to get all the fan mail (I still need 4) and the questline is on hold as I can’t afford to waste laptops.

      • They should have had more characters or a building dropping Video Editors. As it stands probably see more drops Week 3 but by then so many are done as fallen behind.

        Like

        • They should’ve just made them “always” drops instead of “chance” as sometimes I’ll only get 1 laptop after 8 hours. I’m using the FF feature as much as possible and even still I might watch 8 ads (2 x 8 hour tasks) and get nothing!

          “They should have had more characters or a building dropping Video Editors”
          Yeah, it looks like they’ve just done that with Bonnie, Bruce, and Jerome. Hopefully I can catch up now as I’m already behind, especially after losing 2 days due to their screwup / delay.

          Like

          • My Video Editor drops have been woeful also, and I don’t have the FF feature to help so I feel incredibly sorry for other players in that boat. Luckily I can buy them from store to pull info for the site but same material error as previous events. Disappointing.
