Super-Overview: Superheroes Event 2015

Howdy Super Tappers! Nathan Here.

Radioactive Man

The Superhero Event has arrived! Is it a bird?, is it a plane?, No it’s The Superhero Event of 2015! Valentine’s was cut short this year and no more love roses, or love fences or love wheels (Hallelujah!) Instead we have been granted with ACTION! DANGER! and a SUPER-EVENT!

Superhero Event Splash Screen

Springfield has been given the ultimate makeover! The music playing in the background, the sort of music a ‘HERO’ listens to! The font has also been changed and is given a comic book type font, Comic Book Guy will be proud! And the Splash-screen! The splash-screen alone is just is many ways the most coolest and best we have ever had for tapped out! You can tell this is going to be an amazing event!

Like every tapped out event, here at TopiX we give you the basic rundown of the event. So we put all the basic information into one BIG post called an overview post, or as I have called it the ‘Super-Overview’ for the theme of the event, I know, BAD JOKE ALERT!  In this post I will be looking at the basics of the update of what’s new, what’s changed along with all the boring stuff in between. Hoping to answer your questions about this update. So fly with me, bring your capes and tapping fingers along as we look at the update in my Super-Overview!:

What’s New?:

There are a couple of new things to the game after the Superhero Update, some are just for the theme of the event however there was a new system in the game as in the Edit Mode after storing a decoration, the game auto-selects the next decoration of the same type next to it, same when you are selling the item. Below are things that are new to the game after the Superhero Update:

  • All tree-hugging decorations got resigned with better graphics and shadows, It looks like a comic book themed design,
  • A new background music is implemented.

  • The Task book has been changed to a Comic Book theme.

The Event!

Superheroes Event Start

Above is the Superheroes help guide that gives you the basics of what you have to do during the Event. The main objective of the event is to tap the Criminals that roam your Springfield to bring justice to your town and also event currency to earn the prizes. The other objective is to visit friends and report crimes to earn more currency.

There will be three prizes track in this event just like the Halloween event 2014. The event is split up into four parts with three Personal Prizes for each part. The first part of the prizes is unlocked as soon as you complete start-up quests. Part Two will begin on February 24 at 8am, Part Three on March 10 at 8am and Part Four on March 24 at 8am. (GMT). The Personal Prizes can be seen below.

Currency:

As with any event, the normal cash currency takes a backseat to a temporary special currency which is required to win prizes, unlock quests, etc. There are a number of main currencies with this event, 3 to be exact.  Each one will be the main collected currency with corresponding prizes for a set amount of time and then the next currency as well as a new set of prizes will activate, but you can still collect the previous currency to get all prizes due to the questline needing the last prize to continue. The 3 currencies are:

  1. Carbon Rods – February 18, 2015
  2. Pie Bombs – February 24, 2015
  3. Freeze Rays – March 10, 2015

Carbon Rods

ico_super15_carbonrod_lg.rgb

Carbon Rods are the first main currency of the event they are what you collect when you capture criminals as the roam your Springfield. Collecting Carbon rods will help you unlock the first three Personal Prizes of the event.:

Prize 1: Arbitrarium – Arbitrarium is the first prize you will unlock after collecting 400 Carbon Rods. Once unlocked you can earn more by tapping Criminals.  Arbitrarium will help you upgrade the HQ.  Each upgrade does various things, like gives you more currency etc.

ico_super15_prize_arbitrarium10pack_lg.rgb

Prize 2: Mr. Burns State Prison – Burns State Prison is the second prize you will unlock in the first part after collecting 7,000 Carbon Rods.

1166px-Tapped_Out_Montgomery_Burns_State_Prison

Once unlocked you can place and build the Burns State Prison, the Prison will release a Felon in your town which you’ll have to send Heroes to attack the Felon. It takes three Heroes to defeat the Felon and once defeated you’ll earn bonus currency. For each Felon you defeat you’ll earn currency (See image below). If you send a Premium Hero to attack the Felon then the time in less than it would for a non-premium Hero. (Premium Hero Eg. Spider-Pig, Fruit Bat-Man)

Felons Screen

Prize 3: Clownface – Clownface is the third and final Personal Prize of the first part. Clownface is a costume for Krusty and is unlocked after collecting 18,500 Carbon Rods.

Clownface gets more quest lines including ‘Clownface Rises’ when you log-in on February 24, ‘National Bank Of Springfield’ once you unlock the Bank in the second part of Personal Prizes and ‘The Collector’, Clownface has his own quest with the Collector once he is unlocked.


Pie Bombs

Super-Friends!:

Super Friends Button

Once you have finished the start-up quests, and tapped your first 20 criminals, the Superhero Event officially starts and you’ll unlock the ability to go to friends towns and arrest/report criminals to earn more event currency.

Arresting Criminals!: Once you enter a friends town, their town will probably be covered in Criminals as well. You can tap up to 3 Criminals in their town and for each Criminal you arrest you get a total of three Carbon Rods (Event currency will change, see above).Friend Phone

Report!: I jumped out of my skin when I heard that someone had reported my town as a loud siren came from my phone. You can report your friends by tapping on the red phones that hover over their buildings. You can do this up to 3 times and will earn 1 Carbon Rod for each building you tap.

Prize Award base Image

Of course if you can report your friends town, they can report your town! If a friend has reported your building you’ll see Radioactive Man’s Glowing Signal hovering over the building, once you tap the building you’ll earn 4 Carbon Rods. So keeping visiting your friends each day to earn more currency for the event and they’ll visit you in return.

Membership Card: If you purchase a Membership Card for 90 donuts then you’ll earn double the currency for capturing Criminals in your friends town.

Superior Squad Member

HQ Upgrades 

Tapped_Out_Superior_Squad_HQ_panel

Once you have unlocked the Arbitrarium prize, you’ll unlock the ability to upgrade your Superior Squad HQ. You upgrade your Superior Squad HQ for more power and currency in the event. You can find Arbitarium when tapping Criminals in your town. (See Below)

Criminals!:

Criminals are the main objective for our tapping fingers in this event, as we tap the Criminals to earn event currency. So far there is only one type of Criminal in the event and they look like this:

Criminal BurglarCriminal ColossusCriminal Clown

Tapping on these Criminals will get you the Event Currency and you sometimes get Arbitrarium to upgrade you HQ. The spawn rate on the Criminals is at least one Criminal every five minutes and you can have a max of 30 Criminals in your town.

The first criminal above spawned in Issue 1, the second in Issue 2 and the last one in Issue 3. In Issue 4 all 3 types appeared but only spawned when the quest to tap them appeared.

Daily Bonus Combo

Tapped_Out_Daily_Superheroes_Bonus_Combo_1

The Daily Bonus Combo is just your average daily rewards when logging into the game. Instead you’ll be earning event currency daily.

Tapped_Out_Daily_Superheroes_Bonus_Combo_2

These bonus will change as the event currency will change on the dates above.

Tapped_Out_Daily_Superheroes_Bonus_Combo_3

In Issue 4 the Combo returned to normal due to the different way to collect the currency.

  7. BE CAREFUL: When you’ve got the final prize in Issue 1 (and all the following Issues), you get the opportunity for donuts every 3000 items. If you’re close and tapping friends villages – check back regularly to receive the donut 1-3 selection, otherwise, if you go over the 3000 limit, you lose anything extra collected until you have the bonus donuts. They don’t carry over to the next 3000 (Just ‘lost’ nearly 250 rods towards my next bonus.)

    Hope that makes sense – don’t if it’s a glitch or the same on all devices.

    2. I’m over 9000 already – just in the couple of days we’ve had so far. You get more for Super HQ as it upgrades. Shouldn’t need to spend donuts to get all the rods if you can tap regularly, visit all your friends, tap all the criminals and keep characters on prize collecting tasks. Unless of course the server goes down for prolonged periods. That can impact getting the prizes in time.

    Great summary! Regarding criminal spawn rate, I’m also seeing about 12 per hour. A limit of 30 would mean having to log in every 2.5 hours to tap all of them. I’m not complaining – just trying to figure out how often I should log in. Have you verified whether or not there’s a “bank” of criminals once you hit the limit of 30?

    Like

    1. Seems like it was more than 30 when I logged in this morning. Didn’t keep count or anything but earned about 1,000 rods between criminals, jobs, friends, and HQ. Can’t see making an additional 600 with just jobs, friends, and the 65 I was earning from HQ.

    2. TheRealTiminator 02/22/2015 — 17:40

      There’s definitely a bank of another 30 criminals. I made a point of counting them as I cleared them this morning & I tapped 62 in total, which would be 30 in the town, 30 in the bank & 2 that spawned in the 10 minutes it took me to find them all.
      I’m finding that 4 hourly visits seems to be the way to go, as that way you can keep the criminals below max & keep battling those felons without let up. Also the Prison spawns felons & the HQ pays rods every 8 hrs.

    Big Thanks to you, Nathan for compiling such a complete & exhaustive (& I’m sure for you exhausting) post.

    I just spent the last hour visiting all my friends & thought it worth pointing out that there appears to be a cap on the number of criminals that you can arrest in friends towns & get paid for. I visited all 100 of my friends & received 1 carbon rod for each crime reported in every town, but round about H in my friends list I was no longer getting 3 carbon rods per criminal arrested. This would probably be in line with the magic number 30 friends that has been used as a cap for previous events.
    I did carry on arresting criminals in all my friends towns anyway in the hope of scoring some arbitrarium, but to no avail as I think this is only dropped by criminals in your own town. I also wasn’t sure if catching criminals in friends’ towns benefitted my friends in the same way that reporting crimes does but I can’t see how.
    If anybody can confirm these last 2 questions I would be grateful, and thank you once again for your time & effort.

    1. From what I understand, tapping criminals are the normal daily actions (pays $ xp and FPs) and only a certain amount of rods can be gotten a day from these. Not sure how it effects the neighbour.
      Calling in crimes seems to be the extra actions for this event and it pays only rods, even in KL where no criminal roams, and has no limitation but you do not get any cash or xp from it.

        Thanks Em.

        I knew I could count on you to have all the answers to my queries. I’m at full FP & don’t need cash or XP so i’ll speed up the process by just tapping the phones once I’ve hit the limit of criminals.
        Gonna have to hustle for stage 1 though, only 6 days & the other 3 stages get 2 weeks each, no fair!

        1. I average two donuts a day from tapping those that reward no carbon rods.

  21. Does anyone else find it odd that the second prize (the Burns State Prison) releases Felons that require 3 Heroes to defeat. But a freemium player will only have 2 Heroes at this stage. Until Clownface is reached. So, does that mean Felons can only be defeated by Premium players for most of the first “issue?”

      1. I just got the prison you can only use one superhero at a time on it so thinking you have to attack it 3 different times and having a premium only shortens the time each attack hope that made some kind of sense
