Dig prize froze

I'm at 5/2 of the first shrubery prize. Anyone else experience this or am I doing something wrong.

  • Mine froze on me a few times yesterday whilst digging. I just hard closed and it carried on when re opening.
  • It’s freezing when I find the treasure, and it’s getting on my t*ts.
  • Mine has frozen a few times at the moment I find the treasure. Have to close the game down, which fixes the freeze, but I then don’t get the full reward.
  • Every square I dig causes the background music to restart. So broken :cry:
  • This started happening to me this morning, it's about every third prize freezes. When I come back in, I don't get the full prize. This is a pretty major defect, I don't see how I could finish the reward track if I'm losing out on potentially a couple thousand 'fangs' every day.
  • lol wow these event glitches are adding up into a list.....

  • My freezes when I'm sending all residents to a job task at the same time through the Office of Unemployment...
  • I'm trying to conserve device RAM by keeping all tasks indoors, and collecting all the people to collect, before starting the dig.

    I'm also waiting to collect the daily revenue, as my major lag comes when there's cash being collected. I cannot even scroll until it's tallied.

    And i keep sound off too. Anything to save RAM for communication with the EA server. Good luck, peeps

  • When it freezes upon finding a relic, I have to restart the app. Once I get back the prompt for the successful dig pops up and I only get the fangs I would've earned from the amount of times I dug (so 6 tries = 60 fangs) instead of 10 fangs*block, costing me a couple hundred fangs.

    Not a big deal but it's adding up with how regular the freezes are
  • Just had that happen to me once this morning. Only time so far.
  • Mine just keep freezing every time so have switch ipad on and off.
    Nuking is always the answer
  • Same issue..freezing when I should win. I log out and back in but not getting the rewards
  • Theory: Freezes occur when you start the minigame while there is an incomplete collection animation.

    Evidence: I found two prizes, and got the pop-up immediately: no problem. Then I tapped a minion and started the minigame before the collection animation had completed. When I found the prize, the game froze and I had to reload it. Then the pop-up appeared, but with less reward than usual.
  • It is freezing for me also and needing a reboot. Other bugs for me as well as freezing bug. Really ruining my enjoyment to be honest. Ah well.

    You have hit a point that is very important in all this. When you collect, this glitch will stop acting on input until all cash and XP are collected. It will then allow you to continue. If I play that way, or minimize collecting, its workable but slow. IF I keep trying to do stuff, it buffers the input, and adds it to the list of things to do, one at a time. Its like there is no ability to multitask, all instructions are dealt with in a linear manner, and 1 must be complete before 2 is started. This results in either the buffer overloading ( Usually a crash depending on device ), or an lag list so long that it seems the game has frozen. I tested this and was able to resume again after a half hour when I went click crazy to load up the list.

    Now, before I dig, or collect a donut box I make sure that everything is done. When I do that I can dig with no problem. I have probably completed 200 digs this way.

  • I had it freeze once. I shut down and logged in again successfully. Just a glitch as far as I'm concerned.
  • Had it numerous times, have to close the app & restart.
