A New, New Year's Event: Toon HQ Takeover!

Posted by Toon HQ on January 1, 2023 at 11:55 PM

This is Toon HQ, whispering in today to the Toontown Blog to make an important announcement!!! We suggest you first read yesterday’s blog post by Sir Max if you haven’t, though we understand if you’re already too excited to stop reading.

It’s an exhilarating New Year’s Day, marking the start of a long-anticipated community-wide event to succeed the Top Toons Marathon -- and as fate would have it, this is the Toontown Blog’s 800th blog post, too! We’re elated to say on such a day, for such a fancy affair, Toon HQ PROUDLY presents... The New Year’s Toon HQ Takeover!!!

What is the Toon HQ Takeover?

The Toon HQ Takeover is an event where Toons far and nigh come together, working hand-in-hand to complete a town-wide ToonTask. This “TownTask” is split into three sub-goals that must be completed in order: the prompt Punchy Task, the subsequent Silly Task, and lastly, the Loopy Task! These are NOT ToonTasks picked up from any HQ -- but more on that later.

Completing one TownTask earns a brand-new, PERMANENT reward unlocked for all of Toontown. When a goal is completed, it may take a bit for its reward to become available. Our HQ Officers have some anti-Cog analysis tools that need to check for interference!

You have seven days to beat the TownTask, or face the music -- you failed! The Takeover lasts until January 9th at 2:00PM Toontown Time (PST), after which any unearned rewards remain unearned.

Rewards enter the Cattlelog sometime after the Takeover, though others could become available elsewhere, like Clothing Shops. Toons participating in the Takeover can also make use of limited-time Shticker Book codes activating soon after any goal is met -- which can be found by their respective tasks on the Toon HQ Takeover webpage.

Every Takeover will have its own unique identity with new titles, tasks, and rewards. As today’s first-run Takeover is our final goodbye to the New Year’s Top Toons Marathon, it’s only fitting that this week’s festivities be known as the New Year’s Toon HQ Takeover!

Wait, what's the webpage!?

A view into a Toon HQ who-knows-where (not the Cogs, that’s for sure!) can be found at toon.town/toonhq, displaying everything important that you do need to know. HQ Officers will track progress, keeping that chalkboard updated for the entire event.

You’ll be able to view your currently assigned TownTasks here -- and we’re sure you are wondering what this event’s is! We hope you loved defeating Cogs for your marathons...

The New Year’s Toon HQ Takeover TownTask takes triumphing over TWO MILLION COGS! Remember: one week to complete our TownTasks and earn the rewards -- or you don’t earn them!! We could open the presents anyways, but where’s the fun if there’s no pressure? After the Takeover has ended, unopened presents will be stashed away in the Toon HQ Vault, and the Gag-O-Meter returns to Loony Labs for repairs.

Introducing the Gag-O-Meter!

The Takeover’s goals are tracked through Toon HQ’s whistling and waggling Gag-O-Meter -- the distant, derivative cousin of the Silly Meter provided by Loony Labs and specially invented for Toon HQ Takeovers. By progressing through TownTasks, the Gag-O-Meter steadily fills up with Phierce Phluid to reach the goals!

Phierce Phluid is the dangerous green liquid inside, designed to withstand a Takeover’s sudden bursts of intense activity without all the bells and whistles keeping the Silly Meter safe -- provided you keep it away from fire. So, we made sure those Scientoons hooked a big box of fireworks to the top to make sure this event really blows Toontown away!

The ferocity of Phierce Phluid isn’t something to be messed with. The Gag-O-Meter must go out for repairs after every single Takeover we host, and not even those questionably sane Scientoons can calculate how long repairs will take -- months, at minimum! As such, Toon HQ Takeovers have NO set dates, and can happen any time of year. Just know we’ll be back on the Toontown Blog the second the Gag-O-Meter is ready for action!

We hope you enjoy the Takeover, and we hope you reach the goals!~ It’d be a shame to start filling the Vault up, but there’s no participation prizes for our Takeovers. Toon HQ wishes you a Toontastic New Year -- now go grab your Gag Pouches and defeat 2,100,000 Cogs!!!

View the Toon HQ's Gag-O-Meter!

Note from the Toontown Rewritten Team: Sorry for the super duper late post, folks. We had loose ends to tie up, but at long last, it’s time for the Takeover to begin! This event is experimental, so as it goes on, be sure to think over any feedback you may have to share with our team. Also, to make up for downtime in preparation of the event, we have extended Double Battle Experience to January 2nd at 11:59PM PST. Enjoy the New Year’s Toon HQ Takeover, and have a Toontastic 2023!!

Super excited to try this out! Thank you TTR team!

Me and my fiancee started playing again a few months ago when we heard about the sell task force and its been an incredible fun time to play together, meet new people that are now friends we talk everyday and just be excited about the game overall. Reading about the event and the way the team are passionate to always make TTR a better, cool and fun experience for the players makes me admire every single person who are making this possible. Thank you very much!

Oh man, what a terrific way to begin this new year! I can't wait to try out some of these new "Towntasks" and see the Gag-o-meter! I can tell that this year's gonna be a great one! Also, I love that the first blog post of the year is the 800th one!

Captain Mac Fizzlehopper said on January 2, 2023 at 8:43 AM
the gag-o-meter sounds like it'll be a blast, especially when those fireworks go off! (there's no such thing as too many explosions in Toontown)

Yay! Awesome! I love it! Wahoo! :)

Sir Isaac Mewton said on January 2, 2023 at 11:13 AM
Can't wait :) Take all the time y'all need, no need to rush perfection and accidentally introduce game-breaking bugs!

Ginger Sparklesticks said on January 2, 2023 at 12:11 PM
Awesome, So excited! :D

Puppy Corn said on January 2, 2023 at 12:18 PM
Can't wait!

Jake Cheesey Marble said on January 2, 2023 at 3:24 PM
This is probably the best way to go about an inclusive event. All working together for a huge townwide goal rather than competitively for individual prizes. No reason to fight each other anymore! I'm glad you could figure this out, and I'm excited to see the end.

Graham said on January 2, 2023 at 3:37 PM

How do you join this event? Or is it just an auto-join thing?

Barget Wondersnout said on January 2, 2023 at 8:05 PM
Y'all are doing an awesome job defeating those Cogs! Keep up the good work! ;D

bea nanabread said on January 2, 2023 at 9:32 PM
i dont understand? how do we enter? is it automatic? can anyone join? what hq will we be taking over? codes?

Miss Boo - Berry said on January 3, 2023 at 4:19 AM
Love the work the TTR does to keep this game going for us! Thank you!

Barney Wondersnout said on January 3, 2023 at 8:50 AM
For some of the toons that are asking, this is not a Toontask that you would get in the game. It is simply a week-long event that tracks how many cogs are defeated in the game from January 2nd to 2:00 PM Toontown Time on January 9th, and if the number is 2,100,000 cogs, we get rewards! (There are 3 rewards, each for a certain amount of cogs defeated.) Click on the yellow button and look under where it says "Punchy Task" which is the first milestone, and once that one is done, there will be codes that you can redeem for rewards, which could be announced on this website, maybe on their Twitter page, or possibly in the game itself. (The other two milestones have their own rewards too.) Happy New Year, and let's fight those cogs!

Ginger Sparklesticks said on January 3, 2023 at 9:55 AM
Awesome, this looks TOONtastic! Toons of the world, unite. :D Thanks for all you do to keep the game new and fun, TTR team! <3 Going to get on right now and gag up!

Dark Zephyr said on January 3, 2023 at 12:26 PM
Lets go bust those cogs!

Wes said on January 3, 2023 at 5:29 PM
Excited and perfect! ty Lappy!

Thanks for the double battle experience! I was able too max 3 gag tracks (throw, squirt, sound) and get to level 5 on drop on my other newer toon! Perfect timing :D thank you!

Miss Petunia Funnytoom said on January 5, 2023 at 11:03 PM
How long will these codes go to? Or do they never expire at all?

Loopy Buzz Wildflip said on January 6, 2023 at 11:38 AM
I Can't Wait To See The 3rd And Final Code Of The "Toon HQ Takeover" Event.

Noodles said on January 6, 2023 at 4:39 PM
