Dear TinyCo…

Hey guys,

So…it’s been a while since we’ve had a “What Grinds Your Gears?” post or a “Tell TinyCo” post so I thought I’d make a combination of the two, entitled…Dear TinyCo

Two rules…

1) Your comment MUST start with the phrase…”Dear TinyCo…”

2) You can only ask for ONE thing (so as to not have massive comments, then everyone has a chance to ask for different things without repeats and to make it more difficult what to choose to ask for)

Here’s mine…

Dear TinyCo, please can you make characters cheaper in clams to make them more accessible for freemium players.

Yours sincerely, RyPod.

Your turn…ready? GO!!!

    can you make sure that when people pay real money for clams that they will be given, Twice i have bought 600 clams to complete a quest and only been given 200 as far as i know there isnt any way to be refunded money or to get the missing clams and thats a joke

    How many picks/tickets do I have? So over trying to get boots! I have 6 million coins which are both virtually and literally useless. Left out all the words that express the frustration to keep it polite.

  4. Dear TinyCo;

    Two words: Premium Content. I actually stopped playing for a couple months after the Star Trek event because I was so upset over the blatant cash grabs in the game. I understand that you are a company and trying to make money but there has to be a limit. The thing about the Star Trek event that infuriated me was the last second addition of ANOTHER premium character right at the end (Seven of Nine) and the inclusion of a costume in a Premium random draw (Borg Consuela). With the exception of Brian Cranston, I had unlocked & purchased EVERY character and costume up to that point but that was the final straw. The addition of 7 of 9 in the extension week suggests that either; A)The characters were already ready to go and you had planned to add the extra week the entire time and were just waiting for people to stop frantically purchasing clams to announce it or B) You added the extension at the last second. If THAT is the case then you added both Uhurah & 7 of 9 in that little time and if that were possible then why weren’t we able to get the weekly updates in a timely manner prior to that. You are obviously sticking to the random draw exclusive characters seeing as how there is another one for this event but that is infuriating since it generally takes 2-3 times the number of clams you charge for other premium characters to get them. Why not make the first Premium draw items of the event be all the premium buildings that are used to collect event exclusive items/currency?

    All of that being said though, I think, you are on the right track in this event with regards to offering an album to go with Snoop Dogg. That is an actual incentive that I can go along with. Assuming all of the artists have their respective albums available when you get them then I MIGHT consider purchasing some premium characters again.

    Thank you for listening to my rant.

    P.S. I also throw my hat into the ring of using characters from past events. I have all but 6-7 of them in storage and they have been there for a LONG time.

  5. dear TinyCo., could you please PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEASE have our old characters to start helping us collect stuff for future NEW characters?!?!?!… i have every single character i’ve EVER unlocked in storage and i totally feel like it was jus a HUGE waist of time playing so hard to collect allll those RARE and EXTRA RARE stuff lol
    i’m also extremely curious what exactly is the reason or issue as too WHY NOT ya’ll can’t do that? i’ve been thinking and also have read everywhere that majority players do not have all or any of past events, BUT i think it would help out alot for us long-time players. When you guys create future questlines and what not jus don’t put old characters to be required for those future questlines of course because not EVERYBODY have that many…my idea on how we can use our old characters is to jus give them a task to collect stuff for furture new charcters, buildings, and what not.

  6. Dear TinyCo…..

    Why is it that I am #2 on my leaderboard, every time I get close to #1 position (literally by 1 award) they shoot up by 100! this has happened 3 times now! #1 doesn’t move unless I am 1 away from it….

    This is either cheating by the person or rigging by yourselves. Unfair, I am playing without clams as well so a massive achievement and time consumption to get that far!!!

  8. Dear TinyCo,

    I too am disappointed in the large number of useless characters from previous events. Those of us who have played a long time should be able to benefit from the many characters we’ve unlocked. Instead, we have one or two characters running a task for an Extra Rare item. Why isn’t 80s Cleveland participating in the music event? Or Kiss…

    Oh, and Stripper Geromes tasks are doubled…

  9. Dear TinyCo I am chiming in with many of the others. Not wanting to throw away 4000 glow sticks for another useless character I don’t even want, I am now stuck with only Peter getting me platform boots for Alice Cooper.

    I have finished with all the other collections and despite Peter working nonstop for those boots I still only have 3 of 9. At least have the platform boot store drop a platform boot or two.

  10. Dear TinyCo,
    Please make support unilateral. I contacted you regarding new Facebook version being a disaster (at least on my new laptop). I contacted you ‘in-game’ on my phone. You’re response was within 10 minutes. You requested a screenshot, which has to be emailed as FB game support does not work (another glitch!) I sent that screenshot 3 days ago. Kindly show you care about ALL players/platforms!

  11. Hey Rypod
    Not sure where to post this.
    I notice about half the requests are for old/bought characters to be used in current events.
    TinyMatt already answered this question on a rival blog( you know the one).
    He basically said its to much effort to use them! Check it out. I think we as players should be up in arms about it and at the very LEAST be told before buying that said character is only good for said event but nothing was said on other site(being tc fanboys).
    Maybe you will warn ppl

      2. Yes.. that was said. However I think it was just an easy-quick response on why they don’t do it. You can see that a lot of characters have one-time actions to complete quests or temporary drops. In this case, something as easy as they removed Connie’s Task to get glow-sticks… so, I’m not buying it. The problem, the way I see it, is that there are so many limited time characters because now everything is event related, that they need to use just the characters that everyone would have. That’s just poor planning, not technical issues.

    could you just please, STOP events?… make something fun and entertaining for a longer period on the regular game and stop overloading the game with stupid techniques for unrealistic time frames, future useless characters and oversized buildings that will end up on storage…

  14. Dear TinyCo,

    Please stop rigging the “leader-boards”! Before any naysayers wish to chime in, let me share with you my experience.

    I got the update as many did on Thursday. After 6:00 PM, I was checking for the update every 15 minutes. Once it came, I immediately started checking out what’s new. Like many I’ve talked with, we all noticed a strange behavior out of the leader-boards. They were already populated with large numbers and had images of users. Now that would have been the end of it; however, it was noticed that they were inconsistent with the amount of time that anyone could have conceivably gotten those numbers in such a short amount of time due to repopulating the dark bee girls and a number of the images were duplicate (eg. One “player” listed had 72 within the first 15 minutes of it being released?).

    As an interesting tidbit, that person has not moved off that number all week long. Minus the images; myself and others had noticed the same behavior during the Mob event with the leader-boards. Worst part about this is the “payout”. Only 1 person is to get the grand prize Peter Skin? Even if some of this can be explained as compartmentalizing the leader-boards (which would explain why I noticed my girl’s name nor score appeared on my leader-board) it doesn’t explain why it was pre-populated with ridiculously impossible numbers to obtain in the given time frame. Couple that with unclean image of the grand prize skin (doesn’t appear as clean and well thought out as other images we’ve seen), makes me wonder whether or not anyone will actually win it.

    In short, it’s rigged and I’d rather it not be. This leader-board, and possibly every one thereafter, has been debunked for me as I can no longer trust TinyCo not to rig them. So please, TinyCo, stop rigging the leader-boards and stop all adversarial behavior against your players.

    Why can’t we swap coins for the equivalent value of clams?

    If we can buy 100,632 coins for £59.53, then why can’t we use 100,632 coins to buy 3,500 clams, which are worth the same amount of real money?

    Thanks

    Why not provide at least one Ranger Station that I can buy with glowsticks or money? In the Mob Event we were able to buy RVs. This feels more like a step back than a step forward in the evolution of this game.

    Please do something about the leopard skin boots for Alice cooper. 9 rare items is too much when most of us only have one task that drops them. I know we can get Belgard but 4000 glow sticks is realistically possible only by concerts, but we need Alice cooper for that. It’s just another chicken and egg situation!

    1. Dear TinyCo: Please make the “Platforms Aplenty” building drop leopard skin boots. I don’t have any idea why a new building in the shape of the exact item we need for Alice Cooper doesn’t drop said item. Was this an oversight?

  18. Dear TonyCo,

    Please stop having one character perform multiple tasks to get items. (Example: Bonnie has to get Boa Constrictor’s to unlock Alice Cooper & she has to get English Dictionary’s for Belgard).

    We have 50 plus characters running around doing nothing.
    Thank you,

    Please find a use for more characters and skins. Especially the premium ones! This can include random quest/story lines that aren’t part of an event like opening new districts or simply fun random adventures!

    Please don’t penalise use older players simply for having paid and played for longer!

    Thank you.

    1. This is exactly what I was going to talk about, so I will hitchhike on Ian’s comment.. Reward the players that have characters or outfits from previous quests… Still make it possible to get by not having the characters or outfits, but just throw an extra gathering task in there every now and then that would unlock something.. .

      A prime example:To get Alice Cooper on the Boa restrictor gathering task.. you only have quagmire and Bonnie- you could throw an extra task in there from Say New Brian, because most of us, just got him that would help gather items for this.. Treat it as a kind of reward for people that do have all of these guys…

      I do not understand why I keep working hard or buying with clams to get new characters, that as soon as the event is over, go into storage inventory.. Let’s use some of these guys.. come on, this is a musical event.. I have 2 kiss characters-Gene and Paul.. YOu could throw them back out there-the new customers would work toward them, and you could even finish the rest of Kiss with Ace and Peter…

    It would be delightful if you could make the the rest of the characters useful rather than the same 8.. all the people we unlock through challenges never give us items for challenges or stories late on.
