Last Hall of Fame Winner & CashMoney Problems

The last Hall of Fame winner is here, so let’s get straight to the point! The winner is… Sneaky Bear!

Sneaky Bear can now be found on main street of Super Power Island.

She has replaced yet another NPC, but this time the Poptropican she replaced was a character that always had a random outfit every time you visit.

Well the Hall of Fame is now over, but the Creators say that “the doors of the Poptropica Hall of Fame may one day open again.”

Moving on, we have some… good and bad news.

Good news first! 😀

credit raise

You know how when you finish an island you receive 50 credits? Not anymore! But don’t worry, it didn’t just get taken away. We now earn 150 credits! 🙂

While this is great for when you need to save up for something in the store, there are actually a lot of conflicted feelings about this.

Before everyone gets all fussy, I want to share my opinion on the matter.

  1. If we are getting more credits, we need more things to buy! I think we should have more Store items and costumes to choose from. Stuff that isn’t only for members!
  2. I think that the amount of credits we earn after the quest should be based on the island’s play length and difficulty. The Creators would just have to estimate this when making the island.

Okay, so why is everyone conflicted about this? Well, here comes the bad news.

nabooti demo

For some background information on the whole Nabooti Demo thing, be sure to read my post about it.

Anyway, the Creators have explained that Nabooti Island will be members only for the time being. You can probably assume what that implies.

So… lots of enticing membership deals.

Will more islands face the same fate? Hopefully not! Poptropica has been the popular site it is because of many things. One of those things being that members don’t totally rule over non-members.

Well, we will see what’s to come!

MotM Island, Popstorms, and BTS!!

Hey Poptropicans!! Trusty, here! We’ve kind of been behind on a lot of things, so prepare for the longest post in the world to make up for it (maybe not THAT long….)!

MOTM ISLAND

MysteryOfTheMap02
A few days later, the official tour page came out, along with the trailer, description, and three item cards!

A lost Viking settlement… an island unstuck in time… a magical map with power beyond understanding… and a devious plot that could unravel the very fabric of Poptropica! Join Mya, Oliver, and Jorge for a thrilling new adventure that lifts the veil from the greatest secret of all: the origin of Poptropica! 

 

    

As of a couple of days ago, I was able to buy the item cards, but they wouldn’t show up in my inventory. I’ll have to check again to see if the Creators have fixed this.

Members will be able to play the island May 21st, while I heard nonmembers would have to wait a month after.

POPSTORMS

There’ve been a lot of Popstorms we haven’t even MENTIONED. Here are the ones we’ve missed.

Popstorm 19, and PCon Dates Changed

Hey everyone! It’s Trusty Biker. There’s not that much to post about, but we don’t want to get behind, so I’m posting now!

First off, we have Popstorm 19, which features two cute beaver brothers 🙂

POPSTORM 19

And, just to let you know, the PoptropiCon Episode 3 dates have changed. I don’t remember the exact date or Tweet, but I’m pretty sure that it’s March 26 for members and April 16 for non-members. If any of the other authors want to back me up on that…

Speaking of episode 3, let’s talk about Arabian Nights Episode 3 for just a second. Here’s a picture that was tweeted, but that’s not all…

arabian nights sneak peak 3So you see a princess with her father right? Over on the PHB, author Brave Tomato made an excellent theory of Arabian Nights. And guess what? The creators said that  it was spot on! Click here if you want to know about Arabian Nights. Or don’t click there if you want to be surprised 🙂

Well, that’s really all there is for today. In a couple of days I’m going to be starting something called Tip Of The Week, where I give you some tips to beat the toughest things… It’s coming soon, don’t worry!

So anyway, I’m glad I got to give you that short tidbit of news 🙂 Hopefully I’ll do the Tip of the Week thing soon it’s up now! Click here! 😀

Pop18-Con Dates!

What’s up, Poptropicans?

I’m going to do a quickie post today because there isn’t that much to post about… I actually like quickie posts better than regular posts because if we don’t post about the stuff that  is happening RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT, then we get behind and do  A SUPER LONG POST, and nobody wants to read that. Well I don’t, anyway.

So here’ s my quickie post of the day: Popstorm 18 was Tweeted, titled Classes with Glasses.

I also asked Poptropica when Arabian Nights 3 was estimated to come out, but they haven’t replied yet… I’ll let you know when they do! They said around July/August…..

I was also coming Poptropica’s Twitter when I found out some estimated release dates for PoptropiCon Episode 3!

So members, you have to wait until March 19 (hopefully!), and non-members, you have to wait until April 9. But just a reminder, THESE DATES CAN CHANGE! Don’t get your hopes up!

Bye!
