Hunch: more cogs by tapping than by zapping

Prev1
I thought the same thing at first. Now I'm not so sure. It seems to have evened out so I'm thinking it may just be a probability thing.

I also tend to still just hunt them down and tap them. I tried using the zapper but unless I see a bunch together it still is easier to go into edit mode to find them with buildings and decorations turned off. Usually I just find one alone somewhere and it's faster to tap it than to try and zap it.

    I believe that the elves pay out cogs 30% of the time, regardless if you zap, tap or fap them to death/capture.

    I've been using the zapper consistently since I got it, and I just upgraded my cannon to level ten.

    I have tried fapping, got a lot of cogs.

    Oh, people are actually using the zapper? I find it really annoying. May I ask how big your screens are? I find it really inconvenient to use the zapper, because I have to move my finger so far just to get around, and the screen moves so much slower when my finger is on it the whole time.

    I thought clogs would be those shoes. At least, that's what I thought until all age forum was mentioned.

    For me, I tap as I go through to clear buildings and tasks, then a run through with the zapper to clean them all up. So like usual, I'm right in the middle of how people do things. :)

    I read this, and thought it referred to the post immediately above yours, and went and googled "clogs" to see if it has a double meaning. Nope. Cogs? Nope. That other word that rhymes with tap and zap? Aha!

    Do a combination. When first sign on, zap the ones that are there by the cannon. As I am tapping my SF, I'll tap them unless they are close to something I'm leaving for a neighbor to tap. Have not seen a difference. Level 10 cannon & have way to 11.

    Good to know!
    OP's thought crossed my mind this morning too. I combine and had found the drop rate on tapping much higher. Must just be a coincidence that the elsves I tap are the ones going to drop regardless.

    I do both and haven't really noticed a difference. Sometimes I get a bunch, and sometimes not. It even looked to me at first that zapping gave you more, but I guess I just hit a streak. :-)
