I just saw this in the FAQ:
“Hi, thanks for the feedback, we haven’t changed anything here - and it is working as intended. If the game cannot return all the resources (it seems your food max is almost full), no resources will be returned.”
My Feature Request is to fix this. I have seen players report this in the Bugs & Issues. The game is already able to fill partial amounts of food/iron/recruits up to the max from other sources and rewards. This should be able to be accomplished in the same way.
I’ve never had it adversely affect me much, but this screams lazy and/or bad code design to me so I must fight the fail!
