Osaka Flu?

Replies

  • I feel so left out in the cold. No flu for me. Maybe if I have Ned take his shirt off for his next job? I'd send Nelson's mom out, but I think I'd get something worse than the flu.

    I just got infected but can't do neighbor visits yet so if any of my Niegbors want to try and tap me to get it.

  • I am having a hard time thinking I have not been infected.. especially with the friends I have.

  • @brucegold5341 I just accepted your friend request. Tap me to see if you get infected. I'll tap you as well. Not sure how this works.
  • @camillasan372 and @samspargo332 I just tapped both of you. Hopefully you're infected. If not try tapping me...I'm highly contagious...Toxic, really ;)
  • I have no idea what's going on in this thread???!! ;)

    Thx for the tap. I'm still trying to get infected. Just my luck. I haven't called in sick to work in over 5 years either.
  • Looking for a Neighbor who visits my town with his flu. Never thought that i would say that :D

    OK so I'm thinking...perhaps we don't do anything to spread it. Like hit a button or something. Maybe it's spread by the frequency of neighbor visits. Like the more neighbors you visit/visit you, the faster the numbers of infected rise. Random...everyone is not guaranteed to give the infection, but the higher the number of neighbor visits, the better your chances.

    Did I state that clearly? If so, what does everyone else think?

    Here's my guess - the higher your severity, the more contagious you are and the more people you can infect. So, you can probably still spread it at a lower severity, but you will not infect as many of your neighbours.

    Also, once you have gotten the flu - I think the severity might increase with the amount of tourists you clear in your town (not sure if tapping buildings in neighbours towns increases it - haven't gotten to today's neighbours visits).

    Not sure if I have gotten that right. But I think it sounds somewhat logical. :)

    EDIT: someone just quoted me on this, and I don't think they saw that I said I was wrong about the tourists below, so I'll add this here too in case it gets quoted again:

    I was wrong about the tapping tourists in my own town increasing the severity. I checked and it does seem that clearing the pins left by neighbours increased the severity :)

    No, severity increases with the number of pins (shields) that you tap in your own town. I was infected this AM. I visited towns and tapped. Nothing on severity increase. Eventually those people came back to my town and tapped 3 buidlings and left pins (shields). THEN I tapped those and my severity increased one tick with each shield. EVERY pin shield at that point so far tapped from a neighbor visit increases my severity.

  • Just got infected and doing neighbor visits....hopefully helping someone out ;)
  • I just got an update, went out of my game and back in. Started then. Not sure from reading this thread how the quest line goes either. Is this new?
  • Has this appeared for you yet?

    What makes it appear?

    I'm not sure what your refering to .
  • Still haven't had this happen. And I've visited friends already. Is this still a random thing?

    I now have the flu as well. Thanks to the neighbor that brought it to my town.
  • I've now caught the flu, someone has been visiting and spread the germs.

  • Having the same frustration here. I would seriously appreciate the favor of an Osaka infection from a sick neighbor (however gross that sounds...) At least, I'm guessing that's how it works?
