More weirdness

Postby BethM » Fri Dec 08, 2017 6:51 pm

My game just lost several minutes of playing time. I was visiting islands tapping wildlife for a Tap 30 challenge. Checked Jasper and I had tapped 25/30. Looked around my island tapped 4 more plus the dye octopus for number 30, went to Jasper, tapped the completed button, left there to harvest and plant and collect briefly then closed to come over here. When I went back after several minutes, there was the Tap 30 request back, showing 25/30.

I have had it lose a minute or so before, but only when the game had exited abruptly , not when I was playing normally and closed normally.

Here's my question: why do the devs seem always to wait for Tradefest or a builder event to start messing with weird software experiments instead of messing things up between events when people won't care so much?

I have to agree with you Beth.
After yesterday’s update my android game is so sluggish. For couple hours I was struggling to open Jasper ‘s request board. I thought that game was done, with only 2 more cuddles stickers needed to adopt it.
Then I realized that there is a long delay now to open that tent. After just one click, I have to patiently wait half a minute to see the board. The same is with selling or buying, so good luck with this.
I just wished they waited to give us this snow until after the Tradefest.

This morning the game crashed once and stalled several times with loss of data . My world market isn’t opening which is worse than yesterday when I only had half the normal amount of sellers in the market. This update sucks (I just downloaded it yesterday). Lately the world market has been crap anyway, half the items are sold before you can even click on them anyway.
Love this game but not this update!

I’ve also noticed that when it does do a “reset,” not everything resets.

I was collecting from my islands and had hit all of ‘em before the reset. When it came back, only some of the islands needed collecting again, not of them. :|

I just had the same issue as Beth. Next to this my WM doesnt open, game is unbelievably slow, yesterday couldnt open the game at all and today had the short time glitch. Seriously, what is going on? Isnt it the worst ''rough weather '' ever?

no it's not the worst. the worst was when one of the servers went down in the middle of tradefest/event of some kind on a week end when PB staff were off and a very large % of people were not able to get on at all!! you shoulda seen the yelling on the forum that weekend!!
