  1. Any info about what are the changes in the store update that dropped one or two days ago?


    1. none really. probably some bug or speed fixes on the app.

    The ability to make tile checks with the grey road is back too.


  3. Has anyone noticed that now you can’t rush for free? I don’t know how is working, is just for the event tasks?


    1. Sorry I meant: you CAN rush for free!


    2. When it is little time left you can rush it for free. It does not apply to resource earning tasks (pistols, hats, pickaxes, SH jobs) but it seems to apply to all other tasks.


      1. No I wish it did though


      2. Any idea is this is permanent? Also, the rush buttons disappeared from most if not all of my buildings a few updates ago, do you reported on this? I don’t remember any post about this type of changes.


        1. it was reported on the what changed with the event introduction update.
          this is not permanent if you mean Whacking Day


  4. Do Lumpy have tasks or he just NPC?


  5. Can anybody find that wanted bandit, for today’s daily challenge ?


    1. You get a notification when hes back in town.


      1. I’ve been waiting 2 days !! A no show !!


        1. Even if you rushed all tasks it still would not be 48 hrs from his first apperance.
          Well, actually by now it would be exactly 48hrs (10am CET May 5th).


          1. I stand corrected again !! You’re right as usual !! 😏


    2. I have the same problem !! That bandit is not there ! I searched high and low ,turn off the streets ,buildings ,etc.


  6. The amount of neighbors anyone can visit to get goodies has gone down the toilet over the last 3 years !! It started out that you could go to all your friends to get rewards every 24 hours (up to 100)
    Then EA decided we couldn’t have that so they lowered it and then again lowered it by saying that you were a social butterfly and tha you couldn’t receive any more goodies.. But ! That wasn’t the end up it !! They (EA) have slowly been lowering the numbers of rewards per visit send the amount of those rewards. As of today ,the trip to your friends is NoT even worth the effort ! This is probably what EA wanted because now it takes a whole lot longer to finish an Act. Unless of course ,you want to spend a lot of donuts to speed the quest(s) up. Seeing how everything is about money.. Think about it !!


    1. Interesting point Jim P.
      I also think this is the reason they drop mini events or updates when the larger events are going on. People get distracted and then get behind on the main prize track and so start panicking and use donuts to catch up.


  7. Is it just me, or are there a LOT less neighbors you can go to for items pertaining to the Wild West update as compared to like when you went to neighbors for items for any of the Halloween updates. Before it felt like you could go to 30 neighbors before all you got was cash, now it’s like 10

  8. I can now see dirt and dirt tracks in my neighbours towns – is this a fixed feature as previously they were just grass (I know they had dirt in them as one was my B town)?


    1. yes with the latest store update
