Please fix my log-in banner counter & the poofing/freezing at parties issue
On my 299th consecutive log-in day, July 29th, my banner read "299 days", which is correct. However, the next day, July 30th, when I was set to take a picture on my 300th log-in day, the banner still said "299 days". Day after, July 31st,, banner read "301 days", correct again, but along with it I got the whirly bird which gave me 500 passes for my 300th log-in day reward. Tonight i.e. this morning, August 1st, I happened to still be up and went to my city a little after 3AM EDT. Along comes my log-in banner which says "301 days" AGAIN, for the 2nd day in a row.
Flowplay, if your software program can't do something as seemingly simple as getting my number of log-in days correct, how will you ever be able to fix the problem things that are really important? For instance, lately way too many people poofing and/or freezing at parties, much of which seemingly is triggered if they chat publicly, so they don't dare even say "Hello" out loud to their friends. Saturday night I was in a Texas Hold Em private game, where one of the players poofed EIGHT times in 3 1/2 hrs, again mostly triggered by her public chat. Both of these issues really need to be fixed ASAP.
It sounds like for the days, you're counting days based on the eastern time zone (fair enough) while our servers are counting days based on Pacific time (simpler for us as people may move between time zones).
As for people disconnecting, that's usually because may have unstable internet connections. It may feel related to chatting, but that'll be because when you chat you'll see any errors with your network connection (which might otherwise not be visible).
On that front we are working on some new technology to help handle poor connections better than we currently do, so that short term issues in the network don't show up as visible problems.
But that will take some time before it's out and even then it can't solve all of these problems. Ultimately we need data to flow successfully from your computer to ours and if that's not reliable the game won't be entirely reliable.
Dougaroo I am so helpless wwhen it comes to the stress issue of being poofed at so many parties, I don't know what to do. I use to purchase extra gems but I force myself not to because I refuse to pay for something that does not work correctly. I really use to enjoy playing CW but now it is a fight to play and try not to get poofed. Your answer about Pacific time vs Eastern time is kind of confusing to me. I have lived in both times and have used computers that had to be able to tell the difference. Maybe you need to look at different programing? I have recently been diagnosed with an illness and I don't know if I can kick it/ Dr told me less stress. I first stared playing CW thru PCH I never poofed not once so what happened? No one will read this but I sure wish you guys would fix it because when I first played I had so much fun.1
