On favours

I'd like to throw out an alert to all newbies:

I just unlocked (as I thought) a favour in New York (the Priest told me the Butcher had work for me), but since I was planning to go to Delhi I figured logically that I'd have a favour available there too since after all I had solved my cases like a good boy to get my favour. So I traveled to Delhi. No favour. "Damn" I thought. "I must go back to New York to solve the favour there obviously". So I went back to NY. No favour. Waste of 8000 (so don't you whine about the 500 Larry wants for showing you Big Lucy's) and eight turns.

>:(

Good warning for the new travelers, Ency. When you leave a city, the favour you have on hold (if any) will be forfeited and you will have to start anew, doing the three cases to get your next favourl

However, i did hear of an exception. If you have done two cases in one city, and travel to a new one, then you don't have to do three, but just two to get to your next favour in that new city. I am not 100% sure because i lost count myself. Older players might like to verify this. This may come in handy if you're on a multi-city TH.

Yeah no. You have to do FOUR new cases once you forfeit your available favour by traveling. Not three.

Yes, not playing a favor before traveling is the same as an unsuccessfuly favor, you will need four instead of the normal three. that beigng said. If you were to do the favor, sovle 2 more cases and then travel, you will only need one more case done in the destinaation city to get the next favor.
