What Grinds YOUR Gears?

Welcome to our Monday post – ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears?’ – come and share ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears’ with the FG: Tips team!

Lots of events and content updates have been bombarding us all lately, so there must be something that has ground your gears to dust at some point! We have the Christmas event and anyone who couldn’t get items for any American Dad characters, players will have these to finish too!

We would really like to hear what has been grinding your gears lately, is it the timer on the Yeti that continues? Or the Yeti being the only freemium way to earn Snowflakes? Or how the Yeti doesn’t drop anything unless you have fully cleared all of his HP? Or only being able to get one Secret Santa gift a day? Or is it how long it takes to clear the Yeti? Or how many CC and Snowflakes are required for Jesus?!

  1. Childish yeti is absolutely ridiculous to beat! I’ve spent so many clams on it because I want jesus. Why on earth is it 18 damage and it takes Mort and Lois SO long to attack him? Both of mine seem to always only get down one bar as well so it’s just very hard and unrealistic. Frustrating.

  2. The fact that it takes so long to get the snowflake stockings and how there is so few ways to obtain them! And not to mention in order to get Jesus you need 100…really??? That really Grinds My Gears!

  3. Twice this week and before during Halloween I have accidentally spent clams paid for with real money because the game can often take so long to load that I end up touching the screen to see if it is reacting. By the time the game catches up I have apparently agreed to buy a mystery gift (during Halloween I think it was a Rupert gift box, twice the other day it was silver gift boxes).
    When this happened at Halloween I complained to TinyCo and was told that game lag was not their problem and they wouldn’t refund my clams, even in exchange for the useless decoration I had ‘won’.
    As bad as TSTO has been in the past even they have a ‘confirm donut spend’ feature to help avoid accidental purchases. Having looked hard as I might in the settings menu I am utterly unable to find something similar in FGTQFS.
    Why? Aren’t TinyCo making enough out of us already? I have bought any number of clams during previous ‘special offers’ but now I am avowed to not spend one more penny on them until TinyCo accept this failing that is tantamount to theft. As if it’s not bad enough that they haven’t built in protection they then put ‘offers’ to buy (and we are talking real money here no matter how many they might have given out as freebies) on the splash screen so that it loads up before the game and steals your clams (money).
    NOT ACCEPTABLE TinyCo. NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    1. I had the same thing happen to me with the silver box. I have written to TinyCo requesting my clams back in exchange for my “gift” but considering the response you received I guess I am out 75 clams and have a worthless breakdancing dreidel. I too wish they had a confirm button like TSTO, I can’t count the amount of times I have been asked to confirm my donut spend. I too have purchased clams previously, and with this event, and now ive wasted 75 clams on a silly spinning dreidel. What a waste!

  4. I have been playing this nonstop since the Egypt event (or whatever it was) and this Christmas event has more downtime than any event I have experienced. It seemed like there was always a quest to complete or something to unlock during the Halloween, ComicCon, American Dad, etc etc events. Here I am just sitting here, sending everyone on 8-24 hour missions to collect Holiday Cheer which I really don’t need at the moment because I am almost to level 7 and the next tree doesn’t unlock for 2 more days. I am also sending Bonnie and Jerome on their quest to get presents, I have 9 in reserve and I can only give Ollie 1 a day. It just seems like I have nothing to do, and forget defeating Childish Yeti, it is impossible when Mort and Lois only do 1-2 damage every 4 hours.

  5. It grinds my gears that I didn’t get Jasper unlocked because only Lois can clear Mall Santas AND that stupid Yeti AND I had to pay clams for Mort so that I could free up Lois to clear the Santas but stupid Yeti has too many hit points and you need BOTH of them to defeat Yeti ….. So ran out of time on Jasper, ugh! This game is getting ridiculous you can barely get anything done without spending clams!

  7. How about…all of the above? If the creators of this website are so attuned with what are clearly the glaring issues with the game that they list them all upfront as examples of what grinds our gears, then TinyCo should certainly be aware as well and REC.TI.FY.

    Other than that, I only have two gameplay complaints that RGMYG. 1) How about a button that automatically collects all rent/building income at once, rather than having to click 80 times whilst scrolling around my screen? That’s if the sensitive screen detection doesn’t send me careening into the ocean every 5 seconds. Speaking of detection 2) either make the stupid coins/exp/items clear IMMEDIATELY, or for heaven’s sake don’t make me have to tap a thousand times to try and select a character or tappable element (i.e. snowmen) as the icons go flying around the screen like a silver and bronze snowstorm. If there’s even one item within a 10yard radius, it’ll select that first and not the actual character that im tapping furiously to access. No one in the history of this game has ever clicked on a building, and have the coin and exp icons pop out and thought, ‘hey i’d like to manually be able to click on these icons AGAIN.” NO! Clearly i want to tap the stupid snowman or get that character his next quest but instead have to wait until all the items are removed. So, pretty please with sugar on top, make the item icons a non-interactable element once they’ve been tapped from a building. Or, you know, see point 1 above.

    Thanks for listening!

  8. That TinyCo finally wore me down and I ended up purchasing the special clam pack. I got John with it but even with him and Lois battling the childish Yeti I still had to set my alarm for 3 am so I wouldn’t fail at beating him. 😦 And yes like everyone else the Star of David shields. I still need 1 more that I’ll have to check on to see if I get it tonight at 12:00 am. I need my sleep TinyCo -.-

  9. Here is what really grinds my gears. I can’t tell the difference between the snowmen walking around my town and Meg. Could they please make the snowmen fatter so I can tell the difference. Ha, Meg is fat.

  10. Does anyone know how many clams it costs to continue fighting the same yeti after his timer has run out, please??
    Because this is the only way I am going to be able to defeat anything other than the first yeti.
    So yetis with too many hit-points or tasks to damage him taking way too long is grinding my gears!

      1. I believe the number of clams required varies based on the number of hit points remaining. I had 2 HP left and cost was 20 clams to carry on where I left off.

      2. I missed one of my timers and had the option to buy the yeti back to where I was for 32 clams (I think). Unfortunately I was so pissed at myself for not paying attention to my yeti alarm that I forgot to pay attention to the clam cost to yeti bars ratio.

  11. I have no clue when the next update comes out how we are going to defeat the Yeti, unless you paid for John Mclane. As of now, the Childish Yeti requires 18 damage. If you have both Mort and Lois going non-stop (every 4 hours), you can realistically have 10 attacks complete at 1-2 damage. So if you’re lucky, you can deal 20 damage, but more than likely, you’ll fall around 15-16 and fail. The only other character to deal damage is Jesus, which you need 100 snowflakes, which is 10 defeats of Childish Yeti. They better increase the damage Lois and Mort can do, or drop the attack time to 2 hours.

  12. Honestly, the whole countdown tasks that trigger and I’m not even ready for them. Exceedingly frustrating, and grinds my gears down to nothing. I’m all excited to move ahead, and then I realize that, crap, I need to defeat this Yeti and Hanukkah Mort is taking forever? UGH. I caved and bought Mort for 25 clams, and now he’s throwing snowballs at the Yeti with Lois, with about 2 days left, not even. Fingers crossed I get this. Doubtful, but oh well – I missed out on one item in the Hallowe’en update, too, so I didn’t get the Ghostbuster car 😦
    At the end of the day, though, it’s just a game.

  13. The Star of David shields are obviously annoying a lot of us but I’m almost over it now.
    Everything related to the yeti is fine. Some things might seem difficult or a bit unfair but this game is supposed to be challenging so I have no complaints about the yeti.
    I don’t connect games to my Facebook account to protect my privacy so Ollie should definitely be able to send gifts. I mean, if he can receive them why can’t he give too?
    Jesus is not too expensive either. Most of us aren’t supposed to unlock him at this stage. Tbh I don’t know why they even announce him this early. I remember mr weed seemed expensive but I still got him with a week if the Halloween event left and a lot of event currency left over, so Jesus is definitely obtainable, we just have to wait.

    However there is one thing which has been grinding my gears for a while now – LAND!
    I know we received new land with this update but it wasn’t enough. Once I placed my American dad buildings I was running out again. I don’t understand why they have to be so stingy with land. They give out massive buildings and decos all the time without a problem but when it comes to land it’s bad for their servers. Land should be released with every event. If we got land in the Halloween event and again in American dad we wouldn’t have this problem. I just don’t understand why they hesitate so much to give out land. Please can someone explain.

  14. Tinyco only responds with the some sounds may be missing FAQ when I ask for support on no sounds in the game. Half the fun of the game is the character dialogue.

    And also not having any use for the stockings that the mall santas drop.

  15. I’m enjoying everything except the gift issue. I don’t have any way of having friends so I only have Ollie to give presents to and he only returns one present per Christmas tree upgrade. right now I have 7 presents stockpiled and nothing to do with them. It just sort of seems like a small glitch in their gameplay for those of us who don’t have Facebook or Google+ accounts setup with our game.

    1. Hollypopsicle gave a Secret Santa gift and luckily received 15 Clams, I have only received 2 Clams twice from leaving gifts, but even if you can only give them to Ollie, you may earn some free Clams? If you wanted too, you can always link your Facebook to your email account setup! I think they should have brought more ways of having friends before doing a social element so it is fair!

      1. Unfortunately I’m not able to do Facebook account or anything like that so I’m stuck with just stingy old Ollie and his once a week gifts. I have gotten some clams from Ali when I gave him a gift but I thought it was only one or two. I’ll have to pay attention next time to how many and I will post better numbers on what he pays out for gifts given to him.

      1. As far as I can tell no. the only way to add friends is through Facebook and such. Really if Ollie gave up more than one a week it wouldn’t be that big a deal. I guess I can live without it but still its always fun to get presents. 🙂
