Re-dive issues

Postby Ely321 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 3:51 pm

I noticed over the last month or so issues with dives. heard of others several months ago having issues so put it down to that at first. my regulars who i dive at will start a dive, then they either don't go to the next dive or PB isn't letting me re-dive with them. this happens even though i know they still have 15 hrs left on their dives and who wouldn't dive on those lower levels? I have noticed this on dives with strangers as well. they do one dive then any time i go back, it shows a chest they haven't collected or says "no dive in progress" when, i had checked at the first time they had 12-15 hrs remaining on their dive. any one else notice this? or is this my personal "glitch"?

I did notice this and remember wondering if there was a way to interrupt a dive and continue it later, like after people sleep. Because most of the eight folks that I follow are higher up than I am, I thought they knew something that I didn't and I forgot to ask.
Thanks for posting this!

If you are thinking of the most recent dive featuring lots of map parts and dyes, I think a lot of players stopped diving much earlier than usual for that one. (It was the first time I ever stopped at the 30 minute level.)

During the big dive events, I will sometimes randomly visit players from the WM and it always surprises me how often i see a dive not being used or the treasure chest still waiting to be collected from the previous dive.

I think some players are just more casual about this stuff than others.

thx guys/gals. i wasn't sure if it was a "glitch" on my end or just the low rewards on the recent dives. i know my last dives I wasn't all that enthused about getting(rewards seemed low for the price) and the rewards for diving with others really was just to help them as the reward pretty close to equaled the cost of diving.

Hello my dear ladies :D
Here is what I think... This is the game played around the world, so we are in diferent time zones, so for example, my dives sometimes starts at 11 pm...and before I knew better, I used to start them as soon as I saw the sign. Then, I need something from wm, and I go there and hold on to find the item, which sometimes takes longer than 3 minutes, especialy if I go to visit someones island... by the time I came back, the first dive is looooong over, and I start second.... Then, after first round of short dives, and maybe 30min. ones, I decide tthat the prizes are not interesting for me to stay up and give 200 coins for each of them, so I leave...
Second scenario is, I am at work, /I am cooking/ I am warching tv/....doing something, but ocaisonaly check my game to see what is the progresss...
In the mean while, you are there, the time is conviniant for you, and you have decided to play your game for the next two hours and you are waitig for me to go on with dives wandering.... :D
What do you say, does it make sence? :D

That's kind of what I meant about taking a more casual approach to this game -- playing in bits here and there around your real life.

For other players, once we start the dive event, we are prepared to spend the next 14 hours setting timers to get the next dive started on time. (That's why I try to make the seal wait until morning to begin.).

I guess that's why that last dive event was such a surprising dud. Maybe they need to make sure at least one of the 6 hour rewards is worth the trouble (like a nice pile of purple gems).

Beth, i hear you. i know i will see a dive opportunity, look at the clock, do the math in my head before "tapping" in to start. will wait until i have time to devote to it. then if the end reward is not something i like, do the levels up to it.

like the idea of a nice pile of gems!! that would attract me at least. :D
