Is Act 2 better than Act 1?

Prev1

So it looks like they didn't do that typical currency inflation; things in Act 2 spit out about the same as they did in Act 1, daily challenges are still 1500/2000, etc. Or maybe I'm missing something?

I built some new Junk Lookouts and Barriers since they match the new Junk Base, but then I moved over a bunch of "old" items to bump up the base multiplier to 19% (Still not sure why 20% is better than 19%).

But now we basically just do the same thing again for the next 13 days? At least in the past the currency inflation made things feel a bit different. What's different about Act 2? Is there a point in which both the Playscape and Junk base will be used at the same time (by characters who can only use one place, not both)?

  • I started act 1 almost 2 days later, but I liked the prizes and I finished 14 hours before dead line. Now, in act 2, I don't really like the prizes: some decorations and 2 skins, so I'll pass this one. I'll save tasks for act 3.
  • The new junk base can be used with the worlds largest redwood to make it look like it's attached to it via another base in the tree. So that kinda is a big deal for me lol. Act 2 commence.
  • Another two weeks of repetitive 4hr tasks... can't see it's any better than act 1 personally :/

  • Do we need to send all characters to the new junkyard base, or split them, sending some to the playground base?

    I was wondering the same thing. If there’s no difference, then I’m not moving all my decorations to the new Junk Base.
  • Seriously I just don't get it. What's the point of a 2nd base that does exactly the same as the first one? I must be missing something! :/

    Much easier to move the new one in place of the old one.

    Dang! Wish I thought of that.

  • I like the event, but i don't understand the bonus, do they stack so by the end of act 2 we are getting a 40% payout or do they only apply to the people at the base?
  • The playscape jobs are now reversed. Adults assault, kids fortify. (Kinda curious to see that!)

    Also, the 20% thing only makes a difference if you have a premium character.

    And lastly, if you have the two bases close together, sharing items, the items will only count for one of the bases. It will take away from the other.

    I am keeping everyone on assault as much as I can. Kids assault the new playground and adults assaulting the old one. The animations for the adults are fun.

    I meant the difference between 19 and 20, as was mentioned in the first post. :wink:

    All the normal characters will have the same amount at 19 as at 20.

    Ah! I hadn't gotten around to testing it yet. Thank you!

    Sadly, moving down from 19.5 loses one for Crazy Iguana Lady. It's just one, but still. :tongue:

    Not sure about other, more profitable premium characters.

    I never checked my one premium. Good point. the 18.25 is for freebie people not premium.

    ETA: 18.25 put Eric at 89 and CILady at 75. 18.75 put Eric at 90 but kept CILady at 75. at 20 CILady is at 76 Eric still at 90.

    Same. The payout is the same too. So, what's the point?

    Don't increase the Item Limit? Then I don't play. Period.

  • I'm not too bothered about the % as long as I'm getting some sort of payout to advance me up in the prize track and it seems quite easy enough any way.
    TOUK is the best also have you considered Nuking. Don't forget about the Springfield Showcase
  • I just bought a bunch of Dragon's Teeth again. They might be bought out of storage when the event is over (all the bases are going into storage; without a doubt).
