Greed and cash-milking again

Hi all,

This war I have noticed that the chances of opening the first chest with the skulls were significantly reduced. Approximately 50% of the first chest was a fail…

Combined with the game crashing immediately after the raid, before the CoF, it reduces much the skulls gained by players (except for the heavily paying ones of course).

The only explanation can be Flares sick greed for cash again. They want all to use more gems for opening chests.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes, I’ve noticed exactly the same. Game crashes just after a raid (not even the prizes load), those crashes happen about a 30% of the time, and then, when game doesn’t crash and I can go to CoF, I fail almost all of the times, I’ve gotten first chest on CoF just a 10%-20% of the chances… That’s insaly ridiculous!!!

No game crashes ( lucky me ) and didn’t see any problem with getting scull. Also checking the guild member I see that they are getting usual amount. But I have thought that something could changed.  I usually open first upper middle or lower middle chest . Yesterday upper middle gave nothing most of the time, I found it unusual. Today upper middle gave me something most of the time, again for me it is unusual =)

There are a bunch of threads in the bug forums about the crash when going into CoF.  Most of those say it happens only on Windows.  I certainly see the crash a lot on my Win10 account.  It doesn’t seem to happen at all on Windows Phone.  I don’t think I’ve seen it on my two win phone accounts, in any case.  This crashing problem has been around for months at this point.  I can understand why they may not have fixed it earlier since they were working on the huge V2 upgrade, but now that that’s releasedI hope they prioritize fixing this.  It’s has certainly affected my skull counts by enough to impact wars (for some very close battles where the delta between teams was < 200 skulls).  Other than the crashing, I haven’t noticed any difference this season with the likelihood of getting skulls in the 1st chest.

I get crashes when the server is overloaded near war reset time on Windows phone. I also continuously risk crashing if I tap farms/taverns too quickly or select an item in blacksmith too fast.

No reduced chances in cof for me, i got 8 out of 10 right, maybe some of you are just having a bad luck day. 

About the crash, yes, it’s really annoying, but on ios it’s happen only while i was using matchmaker sofar. On a bad day, it kicked me out of the game every 4-5 roll in mm.

For me, the crashes only happen on Windows, not Windows Phone. The crashes on Windows are often clustered during certain time ranges so it may be related to periods of high server load, rather than a pure client-side issue.  All up, the crashes on Windows seem to happen about 20-25% of the time for me though sometimes I get 2 or 3 crashes in a row.

This I noticed a lot of times already. It only gets worse when you payed gems before after a failure to get the skull reward. I lost counting already how often the game crashes or freezes exactly after raiding 100%. It is indeed around 30% and happens most times during war seasons.

And when you manage to make it to the chamber of fortune, first chest opened is more often incorrect than it used to be. I already managed to get a serie of 8 incorrect chests in a row a couple of  times already, that’s just pathetic even with odds 50% of being incorrect. I even had call in the help of Edward his black cat to break the curse. And as an extra cherry on the pie, we get freezes and crashes on Windows every three raids.

I must already go back to last season when I managed to open 8 out of 10 chests correct, but… Next battle I failed at least 9 out of 10 times.

I have had enough of the skull reward in chests. flare we asked you already a lot of times, please remove those skull rewards from chests. I realise it won’t happen, since there is no one of Flare listening. Even when someone of them should accidentally read it, it will be ignored, just like a foreign language they don’t speak. I bet 9 out of 10 of the players don’t like the skull reward, so what are you waiting for Flare, remove the skull reward from the chests.
