    - If you win your bonus game every day that's 1500 foam fingers over 10 days.
    - If you lose to a 5 star match 4 times every day for 10 days, then you would get 3600 foam fingers.
    - If you do your 50 friend actions to tap fans every day for 10 days, then you would get 500 foam fingers.
    - If you do the daily tasks each day for 10 days, then you would get 8000 foam fingers.

    That totals to 13,600. Need 19,500 for final prize. So need 5900 more. Or 590 more per day.

    Tapping fans is giving 10 each. So 59 fans a day would do it.

    This does not count the foam fingers from games people initiate against you. Other sources of foam fingers?




    There is the daily play bonus (not the first win one but the one that's usually a mystery box) it won't be much but still its best to add it in

    Made some calendars because I'm clearly avoiding doing what I'm supposed to today :). Two versions as we have an international community here... same calendar - one Sunday start, one Monday start.

    Yep, good catch. 10,20,50,100 on day 1,2,3,4. That's 360 for the 10 days if your day 1 matched the first day of the event.

    The daily win bonus seems like an important way to earn bucks, but I am having trouble keeping track. Is there a spot in the menu I'm missing? It would be nice if there was a timer somewhere that showed when it is resetting and if I already completed this for today or if this is still outstanding.

    I think it's also worth noting that when upgrading your Tap ball players if you are close to the number of tickets needed you can rush it for 0 donuts. I.e say you need 29 tickets for Lisa to upgrade and you only have 20, you can tap the upgrade and the option to use donuts will show up and say 0. Just a way to save on amateur tickets, I've done this about 4 different times and no donuts were spent.

    I haven't found a timer yet (I'm just paying attention to when I do it and then remembering to do it slightly later the next day (ie today was 7am eastern, tomorrow will be slightly later (keep your times on a post it note (I'm assuming the day resets when the tasks appear (ie 9GMT4am eastern) but I haven't checked that

    although as a data point I think I saw the daily bonus reward closer to 11am on day 1 and I saw it in the same town on day 2 at 7am (but I'm not totally sure about the day 1 time, and I can't independently confirm-- to be safe keep track and wait until after reset

    eta day 1- yesterday
    day 2 -today

    sorry for confusion

    My bonus (brockman one) seemed to correspond close to the time I first unlocked the ability to play tap ball on the first day of the event. Is this by chance happening for you as well?

    Can you explain the 1 star differential requirement? Are you saying that to get the Brockman daily bonus your first win must be against an opponent at least 1 star away from you (example: if I was 3 stars I would need to beat either a 2 or 2.5 star opponent).

    Yeah, that's it!

    I can support this from the opposite view kinda, if that makes sense. I'm 5 star and battled a 3 star and 5 star town today, didn't get the bonus. I don't have a neighbour with a 4 star town but I have a lower level player to bump myself down. Will try that next round and see what happens.

    So you're saying you, as a 5-Star player, gets the bonus against 4-Star players and lower?

    No I'm saying I haven't got the daily Brockman bonus yet, and battled two towns - 1st was 3 star, 2nd was 5 star. Hope we're talking about the same thing and I didn't misunderstand the thread. I won't battle anymore until I get the bonus today and see what happens.

    ETA: When I got it yesterday it seemed like it corresponded to the time I got it the day before. By not battling again, I'll either support or eliminate that.

    Will do. I'll wait till late tonight and if I still haven't gotten it, I'll try to battle a 4 star town and see if that triggers it.

    Is it better to play against other Springfield or just do single player to maximize your bucks?

    My players are all weak (1 1/2 star). So I can't win against some of my neighbors.

    For Balls of Glory Pt. 6 the task is "Win Tap Ball Games in Another Springfield" (x10). At the moment I have won three games. I'm a 2 star team so theoretically playing against seven one star teams should complete this. I'm interested in getting the Daily Win bonus so I think if I do this once a day for the next seven days AND play to lose against 5 star teams for my other games on those days I will achieve maximum possible return - WITHOUT spending any more Amateur bucks on upgrading my players.

    This way I can save on using elixir (whatever it is) during games and only use it to secure my single daily win if needed.

    If I upgraded all my players to 5 stars and played to win every time I would end up with a lot less than taking this Play to Lose route.

    I hope I'm doing the right thing. :shock: :wink:

    look at page 1 the total amount you get for a battle is a combo of whether you win or lose and a difficulty bonus (the difficulty bonus is why my strategy is to battle 1 neighbor town that is 1 star less than me for my daily win bonus and then battle 5 star towns the other times (The only time this will change is when the daily task requires you to win multiple tap ball games (there's a link to the daily task things in the walkthrough by LPN)

    I'm hoarding the elixir and won't use it until I need to win multiple games for the daily task (losing is great if it's to a high ranking player)

    totally my plan (saving the elixir for the days when I need multiple wins for the daily tasks (theres a chart in the walkthrough)...also I really like fences (I might upgrade when I gain enough amateur bucks to upgrade them all at once post battle so I can battle twice in a short time but that takes a long collection cycle)

    :thumbup: Thanks casby. I'm glad we're on the same page. (the things I'll do for more fences. :oops: )

    With all the crazy math going on with increased star ratings and other numerical factors that make me dizzy, I think this is the simplest plan.

    I'm going to bump this thread with a funny gif. :D
