The 3rd and Final Phase Has Begun!

As planned the final phase of the Treehouse of Horrors event is now under way! The currency is now Long Protein Strings and a few changes have taken place.

Long Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein StringsLong Protein Strings

Before I get into the noticeable changes I would like to apologize to everyone one last time for the event calendar. The timeline for the Ray Guns was inaccurate and shows October 31 as a full day of Ray Guns when in fact it is not. This was not intentional. I have always made it my and our mission to bring you the most accurate information as possible and take no pleasure in knowing something I pinned to my site is inaccurate. I am going to leave the calendar up as is for the Protein Strings because with everyone getting an unexpected full day to start collecting them, if you are on track with the calendar with the extra day you are guaranteed to win the prizes. Thanks to EA, today’s changes have corrected my mistake and given everyone who followed our calendar another chance. Details here.

We have a new set of Personal Prizes for the Long Protein Strings:

Silver Bag – 650 Strings/40 donuts

Silver Treat Bag

Gold Treat Bag – 1600 Strings / 60 donuts

Thankfully every single Personal Prize from all previous stages of this event is now a craftable item and the Hover-Copter is now non-unique meaning you can make however many you either want or are able to.


And last but certainly not least, the third and final part of the main walkthrough titled Alienation has also begun. You can find the walkthrough for that here.

This is the full THOH menu but it will change fast. The Ghost Ship will be gone on the 2nd of November and the Candy will likely only be available during the weekend. It is also likely that a return item will be added with the candy and that it will be gone on Monday like Count Burns and the Gingerbread House, super limiteds.

I hope you are enjoying this event as much as we here at Topix are. If there are any more changes that I have not listed here I will be sure to bring them to you right here so please stay tuned. Now get out there and squash those damn pesky Rigellians teenagers!!

Happy Tapping!

    I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this but, since I’ve gotten a lot of help from ya’ll I thought I’d post quickly to pass the info along. I’ve been incredibly sick the last week and as such I haven’t been able to keep up with my tapping. I was only a few hundred strands away at about 10 last night for UBO but thought I would just wake up in the middle of the night before the shift and finish it up. Well, imagine my disappointment when I awoke only to see that UBO was gone from the menu. I still collected and went back to sleep resigned to the fact that I missed him. Woke up this morning, finished collecting the few hundred I needed and HE UNLOCKED! No donuts necessary! I was super excited! Long story to tell everyone to keep tapping those aliens! If you’re close enough you’ll probably still be able to get him. : )

  2. Do we know anything about what will happen Wednesday after the event ends? Will another one start (still waiting on the promised Monorail), will Level 47 begin, or will it just be back to normal, with nothing going on but those annoying random jobs that come with no dialogue?

  3. Sooooo……I need an opinion. I have all these things on the craft menu that need to be crafted. Since we only have limited time left in the event. I have to choose between, donut eating device, rigellian queen, big pumpkin house & spooky house. Please help me choose! I may need to use some donuts. Thanks😀 ( I’m leaning towards rigellian queen)

    1. Hmm tough. I really wanted the Donut Torture thing but realised that I would never get enough chocolats so I went with Hugo, SpookyHouse, Queen, Hut, G.Pumpkin and finally the pumpkinhouse in that order in my B. The Queen and the hut mainly for the spawning of rigellians (hut) rather then a pumpkin (p.house) every 24h and that hardly matters now as the build is 8h for hut n house and the event ends in 27h. I wish I had the donuts for the torture device.
      G. Pump. Queen, Torture all have funny tasks for Milhouse, Kang (Kodos), Homer.
      Very subjective so go with what you want most.

    2. It’s really a matter of personal preference, but of the objects you’ve named I expect you’ll find the Spooky House to be the most useful moving forward as the event ends. It’s the only one of the four that generates income, and it also unlocks one of Hugo’s tasks.

      Like

  4. As THOH 2014 winds down, I was wondering if anyone has written a post regarding how the events’ items affect the Conform-o-Meter.

    Specifically, for those who have finished crafting all the items, what are we to do with our extra ingredients? So, for example, anticipating future Level increases, you want to have some more varied Indolence buildings, would you get a benefit from having an extra Spooky House or Rigellian Tribal Huts?

    Or is it better to craft a bunch of Gold Bags, in the hopes that you might find some Donuts in there.
    Or tons of Spooky Walls, since they provide a 0.05% bonus.

    Thoughts? Or did I miss such a post? I figured this would be nice to know before the event ends.

    1. No post on conformity for this event – yet. It was suppose to been done this weekend.

It’s nice to be so close to the end of the event before I unlock everything (unlike Clash of Clans) but still to have made such steady progress that there was no risk of me not finishing (unlike Easter). It really doesn’t compare to last year’s event (only two new playable characters, one of them premium?) but it’s far better than anything else we’ve seen in 2014. Here’s hoping they finish strong with a great Cheistmas event.

  9. My game has glitched and Wiggum contanstly has a rigillians on his face. When I pop it, another appears. I sat for a few minutes and racked up over 1,000 strings, about 15 bags, and some eggs before leaving out to go back in and see if it’s still there.
    And sure enough it is. I don’t know if it glitched because my human statue has left Squidport and is now on regular streets in my town or what.
    But it’s an awesome glitch!! I’ll have my UBO in no time.

    Like

    1. Dont think it has to do with the statue, most popular theory is if you visit KL while the alien is stuck on the head it glitches when you come back or that he was in a skin when the thing stuck. Ive tried to see if I can get it but no luck.
      I assume it will go away if you store the Policestation but I’d exploid it until you get UBO Burns.
      This is good if it happens to Wiggum or Krusty but worse with Lisa or Homer as they are needed for tasks and cannot be stored – then you have to ask EA to remove the facehugger.

      1. Oh okay. I didn’t have him in a skin, and I didn’t leave to go to KL. I was just doing my usual clearing from everyone running overnight.

        2. If the game kept on crashing maybe you should try to delete and reinstall the game. Mine kept crashing everytime when the prize change is almost due and i missed out on the donut torture machine and the hover copter.

          anyways, does anyone knows what happens if you keep upgrading the weapon? is it worth it to buy the nails frm the shop?
          how can i get more broken fences (other than buying the bronze bag)?

          ishot down some ufo but usually what i got is only 50 gummy bears,25 candy corn, treat bags or 50 of the currency(protein strands now) has anyone got anything different?

          Like

          1. If I do a delete/reinstall I’ll loose my Anonymous B game and it is most likely my connection and the update preassure on the servers when everyone is logging in at once.

            It is not worth buying nails. It increases the tap/squish radius when you upgrade the weapon.

            You can hit jackpot with shooting down ufos: 30 donuts! You can also get pumpkins and chocolate.

    I want a few more walls, but other than that I’m done with the crafting. The queen and the tribal hut were both things I was able to buy as soon as they unlocked, and I have no interest in building farms of spooky houses, pumpkin houses, and tribal huts. I’d stop sending the kids trick-or-treating if not for the protein strands in the bags that can help with the UBO. The event was fun through October but it’s really winding down now with almost two weeks to go. Still, it’s the best they’ve done in 2014, so I can’t complain. I just hope they finish strong with Christmas.

        1. I didn’t mean to be rude. At least last time I wasn’t able to obtain the helicopter because the calendar considered the last day as a complete full day and this time, at least for America, we have the same problem since the calendar considers November 12 as a complete full day but according to the current calendar it won’t be like this. I agree almost everytime the events extend a few hours but any of us can’t guarantee this and I was just trying to warn other users.

          2. Stop in orrying about the calendar. It’s just a decoration. Accumulate strands as fast as possible, and you’ll be done days early. I’ll be done with the last treat bag and working on UBO today or tomorrow. UBO should take another two or three days.

            The count down may only apply to prizes earned with protien strands. We may still be able to craft after that, in which case you may be able to o get UBO that way.

    3. So now people are trying to argue over the TIME OF DAY the event ends and using this to somehow claim the calendar is wrong? Jeez! People will try to find ANY WAY to argue a pointless battle.

      USE SOME COMMON –FREAKIN’– SENSE! Forget the calendar if you have such a big problem with it. Fact is, the game is telling you that the event will end on Nov. 12. That’s a pretty good indication that you should expect it to end on Nov. 12th (take a minute here to regain your composure after that shock). If you’re this worried about the timeframe, then play it safe and plan to get everything you want by the 11th.

      Stop wasting your time arguing and complaining about this trivial issue and use what you DO know for sure to plan out how to get what you want.

Oh well but now I have a dilemma I wont be able to collect enough to get more then 1 or 2 other things. I used 5 donuts to help finish hugo I only started playing late summer I have maxed out friends level 12 and have reached level 43. I have 18 donuts. I have 181 fences, 203 eggs, 457 gummy bears, 233 choc bars, 216 pumpkins and 98 candy corn. So I am tossed up between getting the spooky house and the reg queen. those just seem more achievable at this point I was about 200 ray guns short of the hover-copter fell asleep trying to get it. oh well. I don’t have the Grand pumpkin, mutant peacock, or donut torture device either. The question is which one would be the best in the long term?

    Seems like the number of actions on my friends’ towns have decreased. I used to be able to make it to the E’s and now it only lasted until the D’s with no removal or adding of friends. I only get 2 LPS per rigellian squished and I have the hunting license. Just feels like a rip off now =/

    Like

    1. The number of actions yielding LPS should still be 90. Without the license you only get 1/action.

      Like

    2. Shooting down UFOs in neighbor’s towns counts as a friend action too…I think. Try not to shoot any down until after you have collected all your LPS and you are just collecting the money. If you do that, you should be able to get to the Es again. 😀

      1. Shooting down ufos should not count as an action. The fact that you can shoot it down after your 3 actions supports this theory.

When I opened the game I was notified that I’d earned the hover-copter, even though I had already placed it on my phone. Not unusual, as the duplicate notification had happened with the other items I’d earned when I switched devices too. Later when I checked inventory, there was a second hover-copter. I’m not positive, but I don’t think I received a duplicate notification after earning the Rigelian Queen.

Not sure what the first event was that it started happening, but I definitely do not mind the extra stuff.

    There is actually a glitch that beats the pink fences issue. This is what happened to me: once I had the chance to craft the queen, I did it and placed it in the map. Since Kang was busy doing something else, I removed him from the map (putting him in the box) and immediately I got the message that I was able to craft the hut, and even though I didn’t have enough fences, the “craft now” button was available.

I was wondering, because I saved my treat bags, I’ve already got the Queen and the hut. Is it worth collecting the bags still? Will there be other things to craft? I already have all the prizes too. So wondering if its worth tying up the children? Thanks again. 🙂

          1. Any easy way to do the calculations yourself is to just replace the dates in the calendar with hours left on the countdown clock. For example, you need to have 1,242 strands by the time the countdown clock reads “11 days left.” Next you need 2,484 by the time the clock says “10 days left.” 3,726 at “9 days left” and so on. 🙂

    2. Will also depend on your timezone. Today’s 3rd phase kicked in at 8am here in the UK. The countdown timer is your most accurate indicator of when the Event ends – although in the past it’s often been possible to continue for an extra few hours or even a couple of days until a forced update happens.

      Work out how many strings you can connect in a day based on how often you’re able to sign in. Totally missed the prizes in my B game but then I only log into it once a day, occasionally twice, so less opportunity to gather treats and items.
