Partner Spotlight: SOS Shopping Mall
Posted by The Toontown Team on August 31, 2021 at 2:30 PM
If you haven’t heard of the SOS Shopping Mall group before, I bet this title caught your eye! Shopping in a fight against the V.P? Isn’t that against Toontown Rewritten’s Terms of Service? Some of the time, yes! But it’s a-okay for a group of Toons to enter a VP fight together with the intention of “shopping” -- in other words, repeatedly exiting the V.P. battle and trying again until the desired SOS Card shows up -- as long as they are all in agreement to do so. Remember, you should never go SOS Card shopping in a V.P. battle without checking in with your Boarding Group.
Better yet? Join the SOS Shopping Mall today, so you’ll always be able to find a group willing to shop! Have questions? Keep reading to hear from Eden, Helios, Droopy, and Andrew, some of SOS Shopping Mall’s staff!
First up, can you tell us all what your community offers?
Droopy: Here at SOS Shopping Mall we offer, well, SOS shopping! I know, I know, such a jaw-dropping revelation, right? Alright, I know I shouldn't drag this on, so let me cut to the chase. Our little community runs weekly SOS shopping marathons with the day and time decided by YOU! How do these runs work?
Eden: Wait, shhh....! Don't spoil it just yet!
Droopy: Oh, uh... Ahem, no matter what level your Sellbot disguise is or how much Laff you have, you are allowed to jump into our runs at any time! Oh, what's that? Not your cup of tea? That's alright! After all, we have something for everyone! While we don't run official marathons for doing your everyday non-shopping V.P.s, we do offer non-shopping groups along with SOS shopping groups through our server's group finder.
That sounds awesome! I can’t wait to hear all about how these runs work. Speaking of, do you have any upcoming special events we should know about?
Eden: Unfortunately, we don't have anything planned... yet. However, in the meantime, everyone is more than welcome to join our weekly marathons! In fact, how about this? Come join us this week for our SOS Shopping marathon in Sellbot Headquarters, Thwackville on Sunday, September 5 at 4 P.M. Toontown Time (PDT)!
An invite to one of your runs? Now that’s what I call Toontastic! Since we’re going to be attending a run though, we need to know exactly what to expect. How do your SOS Card shopping marathons typically work?
Andrew: Glad you asked! I know Droopy almost got a bit ahead of himself earlier, but can you blame him for being so excited to be here? Our weekly marathons are a load-and-go scenario. However, once the initial run has been completed by all members, we stick with that group for the rest of the marathon! However, members are always allowed to jump into the group late, or new groups may be spun up at any time as the marathon progresses.
As a member of our runs, you can kick your feet up, grab a blanket, and just relax, for our staff spearhead the entire marathon! Well, actually, don't get too relaxed because we still need you! When there's an undesirable SOS card, we typically disconnect and meet back up in the same District we began in. Additionally, in each group, a staff member will be there to call out cards and record every run that is completed.
How do you determine which SOS Cards to stay for and which ones to leave for?
Eden: Well, we actually use a predetermined list of fourteen SOS cards we stay for: Clerk Clara, Barnacle Bessie, Flippy, Moe Zart, Sid Sonata, Franz Neckvein, Melody Wavers, Lil Oldman, Julius Wheezer, Professor Pete, Nancy Gas, Sticky Lou, Daffy Don, and a brand-new addition to the roster. Wait, what? Who is this new addition? Well, I want to keep you on your toes and your pies clenched a little longer, so I can't spill that yet!
SOS shopping runs done through our group finder, the Toon who creates the group will lead it and determine what SOS Toons the group stays for. Therefore, if you aren't able to make it to our marathons or just can't get enough of shopping, you can create one any time of the day as long as there isn't an on-going marathon.
Sounds like you guys have got this all figured out! If you could make one new SOS card to add to the current deck though, what Toon would it be and what would they do? We’ll have Helios go first!
Helios: Anna from Anna's Cruises! She’d call a Toontanic that appears behind the cogs, then they’d board it and sink into the water. 5-star Squirt.
Wow! I’ve never seen a Toontanic used that way before, but it sounds like a great strategy. Hold on, let me write that one down. What about the rest of you?
Andrew: Zari from House of Zzzzzs! I'd make her a 5-star card that doubles Gag damage for a couple of turns.
Eden: Dumb Dolph (from I Can't Understanza! Italian Interpreting Services) - I know it's a bit of a goofy idea, but I'd love to see him use a Bike Horn with the damage of a maxed Foghorn, which would have a 4-star rating.
Droopy: Lord Lowden Clear, Mata Harry, Bumpy Bumpenhopper, and Good Ol' Giggles - They come in to provide you with a promotion of their respective Cog specialty!
Couldn’t pick just one, Droopy? I completely understand! It’s a tough question after all. Now it looks like we’re running out of time, but is there anything else you all would like to share with us?
Helios: Yes! It's finally the moment you've all been waiting for: the new addition to our SOS roster! Drum roll, please. The new card is...CLUMSY NED! We are adding Clumsy Ned as a vote card for our marathons just for all of you Clumsy Ned lovers!
Whew, congrats to Clumsy Ned -- no more being left behind in that cage! With that said, that’s all the time we’ve got today.
