EVENT GLITCHES & ISSUES

Questline dialogue glitch continues.

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

Some random info boxes missing and wrong titles on things, none affecting gameplay.


OTHER GLITCHES & ISSUES

Quahog Historical Society Tiers not unlocking. Support is aware and looking at a fix.

No update in App Store or crashing with update, please contact game support.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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

Weak prison thug

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Weak Prison Thugs in your Quahog. You will have to wait for them to appear before you can battle them and have at least one of the characters listed below available.

Battling Weak Prison Thugs is similar to the battles you’ve done in previous events, there’s honestly nothing we’ve seen before. You will find them 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 Weak Prison Thug screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from that screen below.

Opponent Stats:

Weak Prison Thug: 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use to defeat Weak Prison Thug Stats

***Please not you can select up to 2 to attack at a time***

Prisoner Peter  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 40% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Prison Wife ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs
Lawyer Cleveland ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, the damage the Weak Prison Thug 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. And that’s another thing to remember, you might get a lucky blow and defeat him instantly, but likewise he can do the sans to you.

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 him will stay until you attack him again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
Nothing

SUCCESS Payout:
15 Turkey Legs (Always)
1 Metal Bat (Always)
2 Packet Of Cigarettes (Always)

Cost To Battle: 1 Makeshift Shiv 

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.


prison squad

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Prison Squad in your Quahog. You will have to wait for them to appear before you can battle them and have at least one of the characters below available..

Battling them is similar to defeating the Weak Prison Thug., they’re just tougher to defeat but dish out higher rewards.

You will find them 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 them will bring you up the Defeat Prison Squad screen, which gives you all the battle information.

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

Opponent Stats:

Prison Squad: 16 Health Points, 16 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use Stats:

***Please not you can select up to 2 to attack at a time***

Prisoner Peter  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 40% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Prison Wife ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs
Lawyer Cleveland ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, the damage the Prison Squad does will be split across them. So if you’ve 2 characters fighting them they will hit each for 2 damage instead of 4, unless they miss or does a knockout blow then the damage will vary. And that’s another thing to remember, you might get a lucky blow and defeat them instantly, but likewise they can do the sans to you.

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

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
Nothing

SUCCESS Payout:
50 Turkey Legs (Always)
15 Muskets (Chance)

Cost To Battle: 2 Metal Bats 

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.


Turkeys

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 Musket:.

Once you have one  you will  will find the Turkeys 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 musket until the green target circle is on a Turkey 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 Turkey Cleared:
5 Turkey Legs (Always)
1 Soap On A Rope (Always)


There you have the overall basics to get you started through this 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.
