Futurama Worlds of Tomorrow launches June 29th

Replies

  • I'm back baby!

    Been playing slowly for a few days now... I cleared up quest lines and just left with Zoidberg to unlock.... (those burgers aren't any easier to get I see...)

    I got over 1,400 stale pizza leftover... and started on DOOP... finally got someone above Lv.30 only to find they can't even get past the first stage of the next space mission without someone dying...

    Gonna take me a while but I seem to like it when the pressure is off...
    You just had to look didn't ya!...

    Love the new chip system and character finder.
    I'm really surprised they are still adding stuff.
  • Yes, the chip update was great, stopped me having to scroll and scroll to get an exact amount... and I can switch off the task tablet now... :lol:

    The character finder would be better if you could access it anytime... kinda redundant to have an idle tab to find any idle characters when you can only get to it by sending them all on tasks or into space...

    Speaking of which, the missions seem a little easier now, unless it's just the fact I got Zoidberg up to Lv47 and using him instead of Lv35 Ben Franklin :confused:

    I'm liking the easy pace of the game too, no events to distract me or use up my dark matter, get career chips on a Saturday and Nixonbucks on a Sunday, play a certain mission a couple of times each time I log on, which I only really have to do twice a day now... Doop took a backseat once I realised I needed 90k each for Zapp and Leo, will be considering spending a couple of days concentrating on that soon though..

    You can access the character finder anytime.
    Hold down the character icon and it will take you to the menu

    The new way of allocating upgrade chips is an improvement but really just a small step forward. I don't see the point of having to tap '+' sometimes hundreds of times to level up - think they should instead have changed the system to put the focus on goals not chips, so that we only have to tap once to reach the next level or rank... in my opinion anything less is wasting our time for no good reason!

    I'm still way behind you when it comes to using chips to level up, but I get the idea, once someone is mid 50's it takes a lot of chips just to go one level... I've got my first one to Lv.60 and gradually making five scientists up to that to see if I can make a dint in the higher level missions... so having someone at Lv.79 and wanting to take them to Lv.80 must take a few taps....

    I'm not entirely convinced that playing this game isn't wasting my time really!

    This was back in June but I still haven't won him since the mystery box is packed with so many upgrade discs now.

    However, I purchased the Robot Mayor for 100 pizza recently - a boring character, no wonder he was held back so long and really cheap!

    And he came with a building I can't fit in anywhere......
  • I may have done him an injustice actually; on closer inspection he has a splash attack, which is quite handy for an influencer although I already have Doc Lobster at level 99 with the same skill.

    I'm close to my first Lv.99 ... :lol: Robot Santa Claus is Lv.95 but I stopped when I finally trudged through enough weeks to get the required amount of 4-star scientist badges for my next character upgrade, I chose Amy, I'm liking the Charmed speciality.....she's up to Lv.80 now and between them I've managed to progress to the part where I need to unlock Walt....

    I had a rather 'sad' mission of fitting everything in to one side of my game without leaving a single empty square, I did very well if I do say so myself and now the whole left side is crammed... so I have started on the top right with City Towers and satellite buildings as a farm... up to about 55 buildings last I counted...

    I did hit the wall at one point and couldn't see the point of grinding every weekend for chips, then Nixonbucks, then Scientist badges on a Monday just to get maybe 1/20th of the badges I needed ... but then remembering how there doesn't seem to be any rush (and after making the effort to unlock Rank 4 Amy) I calmed down... In fact, I must've gone completely the other way.... it's surprising how quickly the week comes around again now...

    Doop is completed, only the decorations you can have multiples of are left... (thanks for the help and advice with that one guys :)) now I abandon all missions that generate just doop coins and hypnotons and complete the ones for other rewards as my game runs a lot better with most characters in storage, so need it to generate Nixonbucks to supplement my buildings income and Sunday mission winnings

    I know not of this Doc Lobster and almost bought the building with Robot Mayor, something about it being only 100 pizza seemed to tempt me... but sitting on my pizza right now in case I somehow get a chance of Nibbler... If only I'd stuck it out a little more, I gave up after Cornwood as the PvP, Doop, Storyline, Daily planet, new character ranking Level ups with badges et al was too much for me... three more events and that was it... I could've had him and then been further along than where I am now after my year or so away... oh well at least I've made some progress in the last six months or so... :joy:

  • This topic hasn't been updated for a long while - not that much has been happening in the game - mostly only the very occasional extra minor characters becoming available, leftover from cancelled events.

    However, just thought I'd mention that the Cornwood Ascending event is currently being repeated. This was a high point of the game when it first ran. I hope to earn some of the rarer promotion essences that I didn't acquire a full set of originally (such as those for Momon and Frydo that were only released during the final week); not much opportunity for that yet, but hopefully there will be later.

    I've purchased Sir Knight Calculon with some of my accumulated free pizza as I didn't have enough to get him previously, so I'm focusing on upgrading him to level 99 for now. Also likewise hope to acquire the King Roberto costume, another premium that I think is the only other character that I didn't get from the original event. He's not currently available; there's a message at the Outfit-O-Matic saying he's coming soon but lots of the event messaging seems messed up anyway (e.g. dates that have October deadlines) so it may or may not happen!
  • Thanks @girl22721, I was wondering what was going on, I hadn't been on the game for a long time and something made me call in the game on Friday, after not going in for a good number of weeks, was surprised to see Cornwood repeated, an event I was not able to make much progress on, only got the skin for Bender....

    Didn't know what was going on and got confused with all the October deadlines... but have also taken advantage of some accumulated pizza to get some progress done... at least this time I have high level players to breeze through the missions and do harder paths that give more event items ...

    I wonder if they're going to repeat other events, I'd like to get Nibbler at least and maybe finish my sticker book with the other monsters and the 'Deserted Race' section
    You just had to look didn't ya!...
  • Ah... sorry to inform you, they also already repeated the Trouble In Eternium event last month, which is the one that makes Nibbler available. It wasn't announced in advance at all and is a very short event, so came & went very quickly. Quite buggy when they reran it too; the missions all disappeared after flying any path once -- at least that's what happened for those of us that had already done it all previously. I don't mind since I didn't need to earn any content, so was only participating for the novelty value; however, sorry that you missed out!
  • DANG IT! Oh well, that'll teach me for stopping a while back.... I'd got nothing to do as I'd got Mom and it hadn't triggered her 'Get to Rank 4' quest... still had missions to get to 100% but was taking time out figuring I've got time to complete them in the future... thanks for letting me know anyway... at least I can stop worrying about missing it by not logging in for a few days :joy:

    MonCon event is now being repeated for a very short time - only runs until 2nd March.

    I don't remember this one at all, but might already have all the content of interest as no characters or costumes are currently showing as available for me. It appears that starting the questline involves hunting through old inventory for 10 minutes to find the Convention Centre building, which I haven't done yet...

    I already had the characters so nothing in that event for me either @girl22721
