I have done some calculations regarding the Act 3 quest line for the Battle of Springfield and Lord Montymort and how long it will take freemium players with no premium content. I have posted the figures in the strategy thread:
https://forums.ea.com/en/the-simpsons-tapped-out/discussion/155394/event-thread-15-thoh-xxviii-q-a-and-strategy-thread-act-ii/p5
It will take 14 days and 4 hours to complete part 3, if a player logs in 4 times a day, although the event will end after 14 days from the start of act 3. This assumes that EA leave things unchanged. Players could choose the following strategies:
A - Logging in more than 4 times a day. Bear in mind you can rush for free the battles when there is less than 24 minutes remaining.
B - Buying some premium content.
C - Rushing with donuts part(s) of the quest line. for example, the 4 hour wait whilst he regains health costs 2 donuts to rush

So with no premium monsters, I knock two hearts per round. This meant I got monty down to one heart before my final battle. I sent one monster after him, which I immediately rushed for two donuts, then spent two more donuts to rush the rest. 4 donuts let me skip 8 hours...

  • Has anyone rushed these tasks? What happens when you complete it? I saw a report on addicts that they got stuck and can't craft anything... :/

    I rushed them all. You get Montymort as a character. I have had no issue with the game getting stuck. I can still craft.

    I rushed them all. You get Moldymort as a character. I have had no issue with the game getting stuck. I can still craft.

    Thank you :)

    Did you get Dracula first? That seems to be the sticking point.

    I got Montymort as a character before I got Dracula. I still was working on the prize track.

  • I have some freemium and even semi premium players really panicking about this on my own forum right now.

    Come on EA! Not everyone can log on 4 or more times a day! Some have to work and sleep! :/

  • My advice to freemium players and semi premium players and anyone else worried about meeting this grind of a target to get Monty. My advice is to rush the REST phase of when he is beaten and regaining health. It will cost just 2 donuts each time.

    Unless EA fix this (which is doubtful) that is the best option right now for anyone concerned there isn't enough time left.

    There is no way of knowing if EA will just give Monty to those that don't make it.

    @0Brooders0 I was really surprised when I did the calculations yesterday, that’s why I asked for confirmation of the figures. It was after reading Safi’s post on addicts that I started wondering if it was possible for freemium players. Safi’s post does not take into account the quests at the start of the act or sleep time, just the total time for the Battle of Springfield tasks.

    Me too. I shared your calculations with my forum yesterday and found several players havent even got to 1/3 yet. It is worrying.

    The usual rule for freemium players is 4 log ins a day to get everything but this is way off!

    I would never use donuts to rush tasks as I like to play it through but in this instance the 2 spent rushing the rest parts is the best way to counter effect this ridiculous grind.

    A lot of my members were taking it easy in game play as the other 2 acts have been easy and simple to complete. So thank you so much for drawing our attention to this before it is too late!

  • This event just keeps getting better and better.

    Mr. Burns wins...
  • I'm freemium, but thx to the farming, have 3,5 heart at a time.
    yesterday hit first monty-defeat.
    with only free beasts and one rest time, my calculation is 27 loging for comlete.
    9 days to go = 3 times a day.
    or 4 times a day = about 7 days.

    i'm safe, but many don't.

    P.S.
    buying premium bests is futile now.
    It takes 4 days just to enchanced.
    and freemiums dont even enough fighters for monty and tame new beast at same time.
  • you can still not update past endtime..

  • you can still not update past endtime..

    So long as they don't take away the quest.
  • Good PSA. Dumb EA.
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.
  • I'm really worried about this. I can't log in when I'm at work because I can't get wifi there. I work 12 hour shifts so on days I'm working, I'm lucky to log in twice, once before I go to work and once when I get home. There isn't enough time to log in once more before I go to bed. I'm doing all I can on my days off, but I don't think I'm going to make it.

  • I haven't even started him yet.... I'm so screwed....
  • You will not make it if you are freemium. Unless you log in during your sleep.
