Warning: bug (egg-probes not being counted)

Prev1345
Some people claimed to have gotten probes prizes before the actual thresholds, also there seems to be a discrepancy between the number of probes in the neighbor wall of fame and the number you usually have in the botton-left corner. Probably the probes earned with gremaliens are added to that billboard AND the prize count, but not in your personal counter.

Also sometimes there are gremaliens I can't tap.

    Nothing here. I have done countless of calculations with numerous combinations and i still don’t receive anything from my hybrids. From now on I’ll only spend 1 egg per day until I see some progress on this issue.

    I asked this question on another thread was it happening to anyone else because I get it a lot. Mine just freeze. ShadyLady replied that she had the same proplem and solved it by going into KL then coming back into SF. I'm waiting until it happens again then I'll try this.

    That worked for me.

    Honestly this is why overconplicating an event is a bad idea. There are so many "moving parts" in this event that something is bound to screw up. Hopefully they patch up these bugs. Though honestly, this is such a insignificant thing to the overall gameplay, that I doubt they'll even bother. It just begs the question why it was added in the first place.

    Yeah, I've stopped sending eggs now. I'm going to get to the maximum and if the bug still isn't fixed I'll send a small amount away so I can continue collecting them.

    After sending out various amounts of alien eggs, then logging in four hours later to be told it earned me 33 probes, it seems it isn't adding it onto my total at all, and im getting 0 from sending them out.
    Also, I'm getting literally no missiles what so ever, none at all.

    I have the same problem, what is different is that I have missiles and shot about 5 ufos already but not one single win ever is adding to my total from this shot ufos.

    Mine aren't added either! I haven't thought to check UFO prizes, but will certainly do so tomorrow.

    I shot down an alien spaceship in a neighbor's town, and won 30 donuts. It wasn't added to my total. I am bummed-out.

    The eggs don't add to the count of my probes. Is there anybody that this actually does work for? or does this affect everyone?

    Contact ea! I wish I was actually getting ammo, I started the update late Wednesday, and since then havent had any more ammo aside from one messily peice.

    Same here, gremlins' probes not added, but I think (hope...) UFOs worked. I checked once when I won 50 probes because you can see the counter directly on screen and I believe they were added. Not sure about the other prices, but I guess what worked for the probes will work for the rest too, or shouldn't it?

    I'm having the exact same issues, Plus the grem aliens that are left in my town, some of them freeze, But i noticed someones comment about going into KL then coming back into SF. So i'll try that for sure next time it happens. ( Thanks for the tip! )
    Very few people leave grem aliens in my town, I'm lucky if i get 5 in a day. So i can't afford to lose them lol.

    I did contact EA yesterday about this, and they said they know about the issues and are working on fixing them.
    I hope they do fix these issues soon.

    My town has stopped producing ammo. Really hoping they fix it soon as there were some helpful drops in the ufo's.
