Posted 16 September 2018 - 12:45 PM

We are excited to announce that we will be building an actual FAQ for the game here, modeled on the excellent FAQ published by Demonka (with lots of community help) in the Polish Forums (see HERE for what they have done.)
 
There are quite a few posts here and in the US forums that provide game tips. We intend to leave strategy guides for the players. We want this FAQ to focus much more on the nuts and bolts of HOW to perform particular tasks within the game.
 
At present, we have the outline below, which we will be filling in and turning the text into hyperlinks as fast as we can. Please bear with us during construction! Also note that we gladly accept community help, either for items already on the list, or for new items you would like to add.

What types of toons can you select in BBE and can you change the gender in a later stage?

 

Before registering to the game, you can select the gender of your avatar, like you see here below:

 

qITQuwf.png

 

After selecting your gender, you can also change your appearance to your liking. Your selected appearance will be just to the left of the selection options, like below:

 

AbJTYt7.png

 

Please bear in mind, that once you choose your gender, you can not change this anymore throughout the game. So this is why this selection is so important.

Toon description and photograph

 

One of the most obvious things other players can see about you is your description. You can see your current description on your character page, which you can reach from the first icon on your activity bar.

 

dMcZT7O.png

 

Your description is kind of boring at first.  To change it, click anywhere within the text field.

 

 

y1uTymu.png

 

This brings up a screen that lets you enter a more interesting description. There is also a notes field. Anything you type in the description field will be visible to all other players. What you type in the Notes field will be private to you.

 

eINejn1.png

 

You can enter almost everything in your description, subject to the server TOS. Check your servers Terms of Use document for more specific information. But in general, you may not include the following in your description:
  • Curses, profanity or obscene expressions, as well as explicit erotic content
  • Political or religious statements, particularly for recruitment or proselytizing
  • Offensive, slanderous, defamatory, threatening or otherwise annoying allusions, comments or illustrations
  • Third party materials protected by copyright or trademark law (without the express written permission of these people);
  • Any links to external websites of third parties
  • Advertising (spam) including raffles, competitions or other sweepstakes, or pointers to patreon or similar sites
  • Cheat or hack programs or information or links to such programs or to Internet pages affirming that they have programs which misuse user passwords
  • Other information which, at Playata GmbH's own discretion, is deemed to be age-inappropriate or unsuitable for this Internet page.

Please be especially careful of descriptions intended to goad or upset opponents. No one is going to make you post nice things about people you don't like, but so-called 'description wars' tend to escalate, sometimes to the point where sanctions are necessary. A description war is a poor reason for anyone to lose an avatar.

 

Another very obvious thing about your toon is your photograph. This is the small picture in your character profile. It is also the picture your friends will see if they put you in their friend's list. (More about the friend's list later.)

 

To modify your toon's photograph, click right on the photo.

 

KpqwH9b.png

 

This brings up a screen where you can modify how you look.

 

7N2cOGf.png

 

You can change several different things about the photograph. Some of the updates will cost notes or diamonds, and each individual item will show the associated cost. All the costs are summarized below.

  • Cleavage modifies your toon's pose.
  • Border changes the color and style of the photo's border
  • Background changes what you see behind your character.
  • Filter allows for those artsy effects used by professional photographers
  • Decoration lets you apply a little pizzazz to your borders
  • Sexuality provides decorations that can indicate your sexual preferences

Once you are happy with your looks and the price, click the CHANGE button to confirm your choice. 

 

You can also post your updated looks on Facebook.

The Messaging System

 

Big Bang Empire is a social game. One way to interact with other players is through the messaging system. You will find a letter icon in the upper right of your screen, next to your level bar.

 

ByzNYsi.png

 

This brings up the messaging screen. There are four main tabs in the messaging system. The first two tabs show you all the messages you have received from, or sent to, all your friends. You can read, delete, or filter your messages using the operational icons at the bottom.

 

3ECIesO.png

 

Clicking on the read button brings up a screen showing you the message. The buttons along the bottom allow you to respond to the message, forward it to others, look at the sender's character profile, delete the message, or report it. (More on reporting messages in the next post.)

 

TX1Te5r.png

 

The third tab in the messaging system is labelled Requests. At present, this feature allows you to send batteries to your friends. You will find out more about batteries later on in this tutorial. At present, note that your friends want them, it costs you nothing to give them away, and in fact you can actually gain rewards for giving away lots of them!

Ignoring messages and reporting players for in-game issues

 

Occasionally, players use the messaging system in an unfriendly manner. If that happens, you can ignore the message (and all further messages from that player), and/or you can report that player to the administrators of the game.

 

EhXTfwr.png

 

Pressing the ignore button places the player who sent you the note onto your ignore list. You will no longer see messages from that player. If you made a mistake, you may reinstate that player on the fourth tab of the messaging system by selecting their name and using the unignore button.

 

(If you want to ignore studio invitations, no matter who they come from, click the check box shown.)

 

STb26kk.png

 

Sometimes players go too far, and should be reported to the game administrators. Threats of violence, defamation, harassment, unwanted solicitation, or phishing attacks should be reported using the REPORT button. 

 

If you are unsure about whether or not a message crosses the line, we strongly encourage you to report it. Do not suffer abuse silently!  But... it is perfectly possible for players to irritate each other without breaking the terms of service. Use the ignore button on such players.

 

Also, we remind you that the people answering tickets are generally volunteers taking time away from their gaming. Continually making tickets about minor irritations eventually becomes harassment to those answering the tickets. In extreme cases, you may lose the ability to generate tickets, or even be banned in-game.

 

To finish the report, fill out the reason for your report, and supply your email address so support can contact you for further information if necessary.

 

bJzCdyp.png

 

A word of caution: Be very careful about following links sent to you from unknown persons using the messaging systems, and do NOT log in to any such pages! Phishing attacks have been known to happen, from unscrupulous people trying to steal your account and your diamonds. Be smart, protect your account, and report any such attempts to technical support immediately!

How to report a player, post or private message in the forum, to forum moderators

 

In the forum here, you are able to report a post to the moderators, or even a private message or person, if their behaviour is against the forum rules, to be found here

 

For a post, you can see the report button at the bottom of ones post, as shown here:

 

8AM7UtI.png

 

If someone insults you through a private message, and really crossed the line, you can report them, basically the same way. At the bottom of their message, there's a mouse-hover sensitive report button, as shown here:

 

oAwp2jS.png

 

In worst case, when someone really crosses the line, you may report a player itself, through their profile.

 

First you go to their profile, and at the bottom you can see: report this player, as you can see below:

 

 

zM7p5i2.png

 

Please note, moderators will handle any report independent, fair, just and most of all, objective.

How to delete your account

 

Are you sure you want to delete your account? We will miss you!

 

But if you are absolutely sure, here is a procedure that will let you delete your account, while retaining the ability to return to the game at a later point.

 

First, go to the crossed wrenches under the activity bar on your game screen:

 

MsKYTrq.png

 

This will pop up a menu, pick Account:

 

EMJS1sj.png

 

Pick the option to Delete Account:

 

As2KNFQ.png

 

You have to do two things on the next screen to protect your ability to restore your character at some future date:  You must explicitly click the box to get a reactivation code, and you must confirm your password. Then press the Delete button to destroy your character.

 

fp1daRR.png

 

IMPORTANT:  If you do not get a reactivation code, it is very difficult or impossible to recover your account. 

 

You will need to confirm one more time that you want to delete your account. (Did you remember to get a reactivation code?)

 

cWkD8nY.png

 

If you asked for a reactivation code, it will be shown to you on-screen immediately after you delete your character.  WRITE IT DOWN CAREFULLY. (The reactivation code in this example is partially obscured.)

 

f0eeL8j.png

 

Should you decide to reactivate your account (Yay!), please contact support via a ticket, specifying this reactivation code.

 

Note that reactivating your account does not restore EVERYTHING. Immediately upon deleting your account, all your messages sent to other players will be erased. That text is not restored upon reactivating your account.

 

Note that since your messages are destroyed as soon as you delete, sending out a last minute goodbye note is not effective. Want to send a last minute farewell to an online lover? Or a finger to a hated rival? It goes in the trash can as soon as you delete. If you want others to see your last words, you have to stay around long enough for them to read them.

How to change your toon's looks

 

From time to time, you may want to change the way your toon looks.  This is a simple task, but does cost 5 diamonds per change.

 

Firstly, in 'Your Star' tab, click on the 'Your Style' Button:

 

8iNHZWL.png

 

Once here, you have five tabs to choose from.  The first one is you facial looks, where you can change the shape of your head, shape and colour of your eyes, nose shape, mouth shape and size and skin colour.  To scroll between the options, just click on the left or right arrows to find your perfect look!:

 

fWUi2sE.png

 

...but just remember, any changes you make, you have to click on the 'change' button before they will take effect, and they do cost 5 diamonds each!

 

The second tab is where you can change your hairstyle, with hair, eyebrows and accessory as the three changeable options here:

 

CrKyUsu.png

 

...with your hair and eyebrows, you can also change the colour by first clicking on the colour square which represents your current colour.  This brings up a popup pallet of 24 colour choices, which you can simply click on the one you would like as your new colour!

 

Next up, is the opportunity to add some body art with your choice of tattoo.  When you click on the tattoo pen button, you can scroll through the styles available for each of your left and right arms and legs and your main body.  Unlike the others, this change costs double at 10 diamonds for each tattoo!:

 

LrfYRR8.png

 

...with this one, and indeed others, you may prefer to see your toon without their clothes on.  Rather than risk losing a duel due to stripping off, you can simply hide your clothes just in this section by un-checking the box by 'show clothing' and toggle them on and off as you please!  This does not affect your toons in game appearance or performance at any time.

 

The last tab you can make changes to your toons appearance is for your underwear, for those moments when you do choose to go almost nude in game!  For the boys, you just get the one item that is changeable, as of course, the bra is only available on the girls:

 

5JXSWOi.png

 

...if at any point, you decide you dont want to change your appearance, the big red X in the bottom right will cancel any pending changes and take you back to where you were in game.  Once again, if you click 'change' any items you have made a change to, will be changed and 5 diamond per item charge will apply!

 

The fifth and final tab gives you the opportunity to purchase the right to hide your clothing.  The first one, headgear, is automatically available, and you can choose to make hide your headwear from your toon in-game by un-checking the box by the symbol.  You can then come back later and click in the empty box to put the tick back in the box, and show your headwear once again.  This is free to do as and when you want:

 

sBoj7W7.png

 

For your chest, belt, legs and shoes, the ability to hide these items must first be unlocked.  By clicking on the 'unlock' button you will spend the relevant amount of diamond, and then you will have the check-box for that clothing type as with the headwear.  Once you have made the purchase for that individual clothing type, you have unlocked the ability to show and hide what ever you are wearing from that category freely as often as you like.

 

HAPPY MAKEOVERS!!!

Your character's skills, and how to use the skill box

 

To control your character's attributes, or skills, click on the "Your Star" icon on your activity bar.

 

hCk0MNo.png

 

Find the Skill Box underneath your characters level and experience bar, in the upper left hand portion of this screen

 

fqdhb0N.png

 

You see four lines representing the different skills. For each skill, a bar is visible with the number of skill points you have.

 

Ly6eLzt.pngStrength

 

Every point you have here turns into one damage point when you strike an opponent.

 

kBr4Zkf.png Stamina

 

Every point here gives you 10 health points in a fight.

 

9SGUv0R.png Charisma

 

Every point here increases your chance to critically hit your opponent, doing extra damage.

 

1Pyu8FW.png Finesse

 

Every point here increases your chance to dodge an opponent's attack.

 

All skills are used in duels with other players, but skills are often tested directly by other parts of the game. There is no such thing as a bad skill point! They all will help you.

 

There are two main ways to add skill points. Certain game activities will reward you with so-called "free skills", and you can also use the in-game currency (called notes) to purchase skills.

 

You have to allocate all free skills before you can purchase any. The total number of free skills you have is listed to the right of each skill in the skill box.  (Note that the example shows four free skill points total, not four free skill points per skill.)

 

5YCV0ry.png

 

You assign additional skill points by using the purple "+" sign next to a skill's total bar. Clicking on the plus sign will add one skill point, whether it is free or purchased. Hovering over the plus sign will show the cost (in notes), or that the skill point is free. 

 

If you have a large number of skills to allocate, you will have the option to switch the plus sign to allocate  10 skill points per click.

 

Every time you purchase a skill point using notes, the cost of the next skill point for that skill will increase. High level players might spend hundreds of thousands of notes per skill point!

What are skillpoints, base skillpoints and how is a total stat built up?

 

​Hover over any of the skills in your skill box, and the game shows a detailed breakdown of how your skill point total is derived.

 

rRkf3ie.png

 

Let's look at those components line by line:

  • Base skills, often called "basics": This means that 78 skill points have been allocated either from free skills, or purchased with notes. Note that Base Skills are very important! The number of base skills you have determines how much benefit you get from studio and personal bonuses, and make a big difference in your relative power versus other players in duels and studio fights.
     
  • Items: The equipment/clothing being worn adds another 728 skill points.
     
  • Skill Booster: Personal skill boosts add another 39 points. Note that this player is using the 50% skill boost, and thus gains skill points equal to half of their 78 base skills.
     
  • Refinements: Some equipment refinements add skill points, as a percentage of the base skills. This player has no such refinements. 
     
  • Studio: Studio bonuses from the facilities attribute of your studio. Again this is a percentage of base skills, in this case the studio facilities are at 35% bonus, for +28 skill points

The sum of the base skills, equipment skills, and boosts is 873 skill points, which are what you see as the total strength in the skill box.

 

Every skill shows this much summary information, producing the total skill points. However, two more items effect the amount of damage the player does with each hit, and this is also detailed under the strength stat hover box.

  • Damage gadget: The gadget item generates damage points explicitly. 
     
  • Damage Missiles: Missiles also produce damage. Note that one refinement adds bonus damage to missiles. If you are wearing that refinement, the total shown here will be the boosted damage after the bonus is calculated.

Total damage is then added up. Note that this is the average amount of damage each hit will cause, but there is a random element that will change the actual damage up or down a little

Level and Experience

 

Your Level and Experience (XP) are the indicators to the quality of your character within the game.  These are shown in the top left corner of the game.

 

Your current level is shown in the Gold star.  This increases as you gain experience throughout the game:

 

aJKfVNC.png

 

Your experience is shown as a pink bar, coming out from the star.  The bar represents a percentage of the amount of experience you are towards the next level.

 

You can see how much experience you still need to get for the next level by hovering your mouse over the XP bar, and a additional information box will pop up, telling you how much XP you have, the total needed for the next level, and the amount still required before you level up:

What are successes and how do I finish them

 

While playing the game, you will complete a number of successes, in a range of different places.  Indeed, there are currently a staggering 1349 successes to complete, with more always being added!

 

You will find the list of successes by clicking on the envelope at the top right of the screen, next to your notes total:

 

gTOPSDJ.png

 

 while to left and below the Level bar is another smaller bar, showing the progress of one of your successes yet to be completed.  When you click on the envelope, it takes you to the list of successes you are currently working towards.  To choose the success you want to view the progress of above, just check the box to the left of that success on the list:

 

RoRgRBV.png

 

Your successes can be viewed all in one place, or split into five different sections; Star, Missions, Shop, Duels and Studio.  The tabs to select which successes you wish to view are on the right of the screen, with an additional tab above for an Overview of your successes:

 

53zwDZO.png

 

Each page will show four successes, and you can scroll up and down the list using the up and down arrows (highlighted orange).  There is also a right pointing arrow (highlighted yellow) to the right of each success which will take you to a full description of that success.

 

If you want to look back at the successes you have already completed, you can do so by clicking on the 'Done' button at the top of the screen.  Next to it is and 'Open' button for those successes that you are currently working towards:

 

dzjrCyk.png

 

'STAR' Successes:

These successes require you to carry out every day tasks within the game, many of which happen as you play without little effort, and others are basic and routine tasks you should carry out regularly if you want your character to be successful:

  • CHARITY - involves sending batteries to your friends.  Its quite simple, as you use your batteries, you request more from your friends, as they will from you.  These requests will come through as a message under requests, and all you have to do is accept all the requests whenever you receive them.
  • HELP AMONG FRIENDS - is a success you will get for the first battery you send.
  • PORN CAREER - is all about levels.  Each success here is a certain level that you reach, so just play the game, get as much experience as you can, keep levelling up and these successes will take care of themselves.
  • NO PAIN, NO GAIN - is a collection of successes based on the number of hours you have worked.  Make sure you keep on top of your work by clicking on the news paper to earn your hourly wage!
  • ALL ROUNDER - is a skill points success.  Each of these is based on achieving a certain level of points across each of the four skills (i.e. each skill must have reached the target at the same time!).
  • A GOOD INVESTMENT - is a one off success you receive when you buy your first skill point.
  • JURY MEMBER - requires a little more work, as you earn these successes by voting for films, which you do by completing missions which have a ballot attached to them.
  • PREMIER PARTY - is a one off success you achieve when you complete your first film.
  • FILMOGRAPHY - is the success for producing films.  Every film you make, of any length, regardless of you complete it to 1, 2 or 3 stars will count towards this success.
  • HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTION - however, is specific to those films that you complete to 3 star level, but again, any length.
  • FULL TIME ON - simply requires you to play the game.  Every day you play moves you closer to the next target!
  • COME AGAIN - is a one off success you achieve on the second day you log on.
  • GOOD DAY, HOW IS IT GOING? - is awarded for simply visiting another players profile.
  • COMPETITION? WHERE! - is awarded for viewing the rankings list for the first time.
  • CHART STORMER - is a success you gain when you win 1st place at the Big Bang Awards with your Film of the week.
  • SHOPPING FRENZY - requires you to spend, spend, spend, but for one day only!  Its best to work on this success during a temple competition that requires you to spend lots of notes, and plan in advance to spend everything in one day!
  • BADLY DRESSED IS SO YESTERDAY - is a success you receive when you are fully equipped with clothes etc.
  • FOOD FOR THE LENS - will be awarded when you have your photo taken.
  • PERMANENT BODY DECORATION - is a one off success that simply requires you to have a tattoo put on.
  • ITS ALL IN YOUR HEAD - requires you to have something changed about your appearance.

  • ITS A PUSHOVER FOR YOU - is also a one off which is achieved by getting your first mission booster.
  • DOPING PERMITTED - is achieved by getting your first skill booster.
  • PROMOTION! - is achieved by getting your first work booster.

  • REFINED RARITY - is a one off success when you use a rare refinement for the first time.
  • EPIC REFINED PIECE - is also a one off success, this time for an epic refinement for the first time.
  • MISTY'S REGULAR - is a selection of successes you achieve by continuing refine your items.
  • TOTALLY REFINED - is awarded when you have all nine items refined simultaneously.

'MISSION' Successes

We are unable to list all the successes in this section, as there are so many!  These ones are all individual successes that vary in length and difficulty level, which you complete while completing your missions.  You find these on the missions map, indicated by a note pad:

 

AdO6ITN.png

 

WHAT CAN YOU WIN?

Each Success comes with its own reward.  Some offer Notes, others Diamonds, or Items, Energy tokens, Boosters or Skill points.  When a success is complete, the note pad in the top right of the screen will have a flashing pink exclamation mark on it:

 

Vf7Rjvf.png

 

...and if it happens to be the success you have highlighted as the one you are watching on the left of the screen, it will have a completed bar and a flashing green tick by it!  When you click on the notepad and go to the successes page, it will show all of the completed successes at the top:

 

xJ3xP1P.png

 

When you click on the ticked 'FINISH' box, it takes you to the final description of the success with the outline of what you have achieved and the prize you will be awarded.  To claim your award, you must then click on the ticked 'OK' box:

 

4xE3Bbv.png

 

  • Notes and Diamonds are automatically added to your account.
  • Skill points are put aside for you to allocate on the 'Your Star' tab
  • Items, boosters and energy awards are sent as mail for you to open and activate as and when you are ready.

Titles, how to get them, how to use them

 

A 'Title' is an extension you are awarded to put at the end of your name, and there a loads for you to collect.  Titles are rewards, and can be obtained when you complete tasks. You will see a 'Title' icon when the game lists your rewards

 

kqYiSJ4.png

 

You can get titles from:

  • Special Events
  • Success Missions
  • Completed Collections from the sex shop
  • Winning at the Big Bang Awards
  • Getting Married
  • ...and even a secret hidden title that you have to shoot to win!

When you have a new title available to use, the 'Your Star' icon will start flashing:

 

g4N18in.png

 

Once on the 'Your Star' page, your name will be illuminated in pink and also flashing, with a number beside it, telling you how many new titles you have available to look at:

 

R3icXjD.png

 

Your current title, if you have one, is still showing (in pink) under your name, but to look at the new ones, and change it, you simply click on your name and it will take you to a list of all your available titles:

 

JNndtJ5.png

 

Any new titles you have just been awarded will have a pink exclamation mark alongside them, and to select the title you would like to appear under (and alongside) your name you simply check the box to the left of that title.

- Which areas are there, how to change to a different area and how do I open a locked area?
 

aojRotB.png

 

In the world view, there are a total of 10 main areas and 3 party zones.

 

TrLt5Yh.png

 

Each area opens at a certain level, but you will start in Telleville. Just after Tellville, Santo Rocco will open at level 5.

 

Colourful Diversity opens at level: 15

Los Vergeles opens at level: 30

Industrial Area opens at level: 70

The Port opens at level: 110

Beach opens at level: 150

Beverly Humps opens at level: 200

Shangri-La opens at level: 250

Camp 69 opens at level: 300

 

Each and every area comes with their own successes and also some even with their own item collection.

 

To simply change from area to area, you first click the world map to go out of the area again:

 

IQ5QhrT.png

 

Then you click on the area you wish to go in the world map:

 

4IlBOOU.png

 

Areas you cannot enter are covered with clouds. The clouds are removed when you reach the required level. Party zones operate the same way, but more about them later. You can see the clouded locked areas in the picture here above.

 

Each mission you do will cost energy and of course also time.

Everyday you get 100 mission energy to use, and you can buy another 4 times 50 energy extra using notes. Each reload you buy costs you more notes, which you (hopefully!) gain back again from doing more missions.

 

You can track your energy in the upper right corner:

- What type of missions are there
 

There are 3 main style missions: Timed missions, Skill missions and Fight missions.

 

You can recognize them by the following symbols on the area-map:

 

gbPzKvE.png Timed missions always succeed, you just have to wait long enough for them to complete.

 

 

wta0vbB.png In a fight mission, you will duel someone from the BBE universe. Fights can be easy to hard.

 

Skill missions have a chance to succeed based upon the difficulty of the mission (from easy to hard) and the number of points you have in that skill.

 

X9ZAid9.png Strength

 

sH7EsII.png Stamina

 

wxKus06.png Charisma

 

fOul8gY.png Finesse

 

Each area always has 1 fight mission, 1 skill mission and 2 timed missions. The missions will vary in difficulty, duration and rewards. Pick the best one for your character's growth strategy!

 

ZnnQgLG.png

 

Thanks to Andrea, a small addition, it can happen in Camp69 at rare moments that you actually get 2 fight missions and 1 timed mission and 1 skill mission. 

 

ca69.png

 

PS: There is a hidden easter egg on the area page. Can you find it?

What are conventions
 
Conventions are events that pop up at random times, in random areas. If it happens in an area you haven’t unlocked yet, you can’t participate in them yet. 
 
Conventions will last between 30 minutes and 3 hours.
 
In a convention, you can do shows for as long as the convention is on. You can also decide to do 3 shows one after the other, which costs you 1 diamond per ‘triple show’. You may use batteries to reduce the duration of shows, and batteries will reduce the duration of all three shows if you paid for a triple. You may also finish shows immediately using diamonds. 
 
Each mission you do, you gain experience and notes, and you bring fans to the convention. You can follow this through the convention thermometer. Here you can also see the experience, notes and fans you have.
 
M2uZSP6.png
 
Or in the overview on the left side of your map:
 
tz7bQfg.png
 
To make a convention successful, a lot of shows has to be done by every player participating in the convention. The number of fans you attract to a show varies by two factors: 
  • The more fans you have gained making movies, the more fans you attract to your initial show
  • Each additional show in a convention decreases the number of fans you attract. It decreases quite rapidly, so many players are required to participate in a convention to make it successful.
Once the required amount of fans has been reached, this means the convention becomes a success, and rewards will be given, in the form of items.
 
rj87ksl.png
 
You can follow the progress for the convention via the thermometer:
 
sGAD8PY.png
 
Once it's full, and the required fans are there, it becomes a success. The show which actually added the fans that push the convention to success is called the winning show, and that player will receive a special prize at the end of the convention.
 
JU7qFVP.png
 
If there are not enough fans in the convention, the convention will fail. No items will be given, and the earned Experience will be cut in half instead of full amount. The notes you already earned per show.
 
dfVrfLl.png
 
Once the convention is finished, you will get a popup with the results, how you performed, who won, and what you may have won. If you have at least 1 show in a convention, you usually gain an item, although that is not guaranteed. If you have at least 4 shows in the convention, you generally also gain a mission energy voucher.
 
First place finisher is the person who did the most shows during the convention. First place gets a piece of gear from a unique set. For regular conventions, the gear is part of the camouflage set. For special events, first place prize is generally a piece you can't get any other way. This prize generally has excellent pluses.
 
The rest of the top 10 gets a piece of gear from a special set. For regular conventions, a piece from the firefighters set. For special events, something appropriate for that event.
 
The winning show is the show that gets the fans which push the convention over the top. That person generally gets a piece from the same set as the top 10.

How to get a party ticket and how to use it
 
A party ticket is a requirement to access a party zone. They drop on missions randomly, so keep your eyes out for them! They look like this:
 
nIyDR9u.jpg
 
They are your entry to have a good time and party away. When you successfully complete the mission, you will get your ticket and a pop up to choose where to get your groove on.
 
Party zones are unlocked by having enough fans. You gain fans by completing movies. 
 
uX0HQPf.jpg
 
Click the party you wish to do, and go MIX UP THE PARTY!!!!
 
You can click it away, and keep your ticket for later in the day, then you can find it at the left side, under the XP bar and the world map. 
 
yO04QGB.jpg
 
The fan requirements for each party zone are:
 
BURNING BERNIES: Part 1- 50K, Part 2- 500K and Part 3- 1M
FLAMING WHEELS: Part 1-400K, Part 2-800K and Part 3-1.6M
WHIPLASH: Part 1 - 1.2M, Part 2 - 2.4M and Part 3 - 4.8 M
 
If you don’t have enough fans yet, part of the party may remain locked. You can buy your way into locked zones by spending 39 diamonds. 
 
There are 3 easy missions in part 1, 4 medium missions in part 2, and 5 hard to extremely hard missions in part 3. These missions are either fight or skill missions, there are no timed missions in parties. You have to earn your way through!
 
GhWmUew.jpg
 
For each successful mission, you will get an item and move on to the next mission, that you can do right away.
 
MY0IglK.jpg
 
If you fail a mission, you will have to wait 5 minutes, or you can use batteries to reduce the wait. You can also use diamonds to skip the cool down altogether. 
 
Co8TRwq.jpg
 
For each stage that you finish, you will get a VIP ticket to go to the next area, and you will also get a skill point for defeating each zone-boss. So in total you can earn 12 items and 3 skill points, plus of course the notes and experience for each mission.
 
8LpTwF0.jpg
 
After clicking this VIP ticket, you get this screen to go to the next stage:
 
DGEL2yC.jpg
 
When you hit a locked area, you will see this screen, and have to decide whether to use those valuable glitter rocks, or decide to leave the party:
 
kjQQXxV.jpg
 
All in all, a party timer lasts for 30 minutes, after which you will leave the party zone. So the faster you do your missions, the more you will gain.
 
When you done all the missions, you accomplished getting 12 items, common/rare/epic, gained experience and a bunch of notes!
 
1sFFM7o.jpg
 
If you do not find a party ticket, you can buy your way into the party zone of your choice, by bribing the bouncers with diamonds.
 
You can only do a party 1 time per day. If you start a party before reset, but finish it after reset, the party counts against the previous day, so you can get another party ticket in the current day.
 
                                                                                            Go back to the beginning of the FAQ

Batteries, tv box

 

Batteries and the tv box are an amazing way to cut your mission times in half. Imagine you have a 12 minute mission... What will you do while you wait? Sit and stare at the screen like a zombie? Thank goodness we have the tv box or batteries to cut that time right in half.

 

Every hour you can click on the tv box. In exchange for watching an advertisement (typically 30 seconds long), the time of your current mission will be cut in half after the ad finishes.

 

You can see the little tv box here:

 

4qg94nf.png

 

Below it, you can see a remote control. This is the battery supply. 

 

If you don't feel like watching an advertisement or are within the 1 hour cool down of the tv, you can use a battery.

 

When you start, your battery inventory can be up to 8, and you can use 4 batteries per day. If you buy in the diamond store just one time, your batteries will be doubled, as an extra bonus. 

 

Batteries and the tv box can be used to shorten regular missions, party missions, and convention shows.

 

But then you think... How to get batteries, right? When you click on the remote control, you get a pop up like this:

 

g4pmfVp.png

 

If you ask friends for batteries, you get a list of everyone on your friends list, and all of your current studio mates. You can request one battery per day per person. 

 

People want to give you batteries! There are achievements in the game that reward giving large numbers of batteries.

 

Battery pro tips: 

  • If you use an ad blocker, the TV may not work for you. You have to white-list the Big Bang Empire site in order to successfully use the TV.
  • You can use two batteries one after the other on the same mission, to complete the mission very quickly. You can combine the tv with a battery in the same way, but it is not as quick because you have to watch the ad.
  • Use your batteries every day! You can only use so many per day, and you cannot donate unused batteries to charity.
  • Players get credit for donating a battery, even if your battery inventory is full when they respond to the request.
  • Even if your battery inventory is full, you can ask for more, which helps your friends with their achievements. Ask everyone on your list, every day!
  • Don't be shy about adding people to your friends list, and sending them battery requests. Most top players in the game (such as the top of the player ranking list, or the leadership teams of top studios) are used to getting battery requests from players they don't know. They will often automatically add new players asking for batteries to their own friends list in return.
  • If you do not want to receive battery requests from players you don't know, you may turn them off in the 'requests' section of your messages screen. But just a reminder, responding to battery requests is completely free, and helps you earn successes.
