Felon Fight Timer Resetting

about to post a topic about this.


So i logged in to my game and timer said 2 hours
thats impossible because I started the task 15:45 and it was supposed to end 19:45

I did get a notification that fighting felon was done.

    I've had this problem as well. Couple things I do each time has seemed to help. Before clearing anything else I set up my felons on fights.. Then spend 5+ minutes clearing my town. Check the felons to ensure time is counting down. Pop over to KL or your Friends page to sync your town. Come back and check the felons again.

    I was having this problem a lot when that part of the event started but it seems to have gotten better for me.

    Make sure the fighter and the felon have started the task before you exit the game.. And if you can for added measure give them a few minutes of fighting before leaving.

    I can report this has happened to me a few times, you set up a felon fight, you come back in 4 hours time, and it still says 3hr59 mins to go :?
    EA you owe me :twisted:

    I too saw this today, however, I just thought that I had hit the 'start' button already, and spaced on it...

    Good to know that this is an issue, and to watch out for it...

    This happens with joint tasks if you set them and exit the game too quickly. You have to wait for the two characters to "meet up" otherwise the timer never starts.

    Yeah, I think I've had this... I'll watch for it more closely.

    And thanks for the advice about making sure the dual characters meet-up. Good point.

    Okay, I thought I was going a bit batty. Will have to make sure they meet up or go visit a friend and come back to make sure the timer starts. It throws off my timing.

    This has been happening to me too. I thought I was going crazy due to sleep deprivation... I'm pleased that's not the case after all :P

    This has happened to me twice now.

    I got up, started a new felon, picked the fight starting the 4h timer then closed the game. When I went back later like 4 hours or 3 hours that felon fight had 4 hours remaining and just started counting down..

    Both times though I closed the game shortly after initiating the felon fight. To me I that the game synchs that you started the battle but does not start the timer because when you closed the game the character was still moving to the felon and had not yet in fact started to battle.

    It is like when you send a character on the task and they have to move across the map. The timer doesn't start until the character reaches the task location. I think that is the issue. From not on, I will be making sure I see the battle actually start before closing the game.

    I was waking up in the middle of the night a couple times and since I was awake I was opening the game just long enough to start the new felon and initiate battle but not waiting for the character to actually reach the felon and start fighting.
