Hi all, a warning, and wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing after the shutdown earlier today.
I collected at least three troops, probably more like five or six, in regular battle earlier today, and when I went to level them up, not one was there. (I know because I have so few left.)
So I put in a support ticket, which, after today, will probably take days to respond to.
But just now I noticed something else odd, so I looked, after each battle. Last battle I received about nine things (I took a screenshot once I realised this was happening), and only ONE of them was in my inventory.
I’m wondering how long this has been going on, as I used about two flasks’ worth of energy after the server issue, and am thus probably missing tons of stuff. I know I’m missing a bunch of coveted backpacks and swords (because I knew how many I had before I started), and seemed to not be getting any string all day, but who keeps track of every single incoming item?!
Thanks for any corroboration you can provide, and please be warned.
EDIT: I just opened a raid chest and got oodles of stuff, yet the only things that showed up were under the General tab, 2 emblems and a summons. In other words, I’m not actually receiving anything that goes under the Troops, Battle Items or Loot tabs. The hams and iron did seem to be received. (I’m not adding it all up, especially because we don’t have exact figures!)
EDIT: Just watched Mystic Vision, got Dragon Bone, Axe Attack, three gems. Dragon Bone DID show up in my inventory (so it’s not consistent!), and got the three gems (woot), but no axe attack.
I can’t play like this. Will try exiting and restarting, but can’t do it right now. BTW, I do clear my cache every single time I exit the game, manually, and have for a couple of months now.
EDIT: Have only scored one troop since I restarted my device and game, but it was there! So this may have fixed it. I’ll post again if I see any other weird stuff. BTW, two other members of my alliance have since said they’re missing stuff too… (Most of us are in such a hurry all the time that we don’t notice, but sometimes it stares you right in the face, as when I went to level my few troops…)
EDIT: My response from Support was “that’s not possible”, and then explained – so that it was instantly obvious the person hadn’t actually read my e-mail – how I could tell I had received troops – from, get this, little numbers and gold boxes above my inventory! Well, imagine my surprise! (I had a better response from Support on another issue, so I’m sure it was just that one person.) Once I had exited and restarted the device and the game, I started getting my troops back. I answered the support person to tell her that, in case it helped others, and she just said, “Good.” Thanks…
