    I've had no issues dropping in your town from either of mine neighbour.

    I have no problems dropping Feds. Usually only 3-4 towns are full when I do my rounds, so I tap one present and come back later to drop 2 Feds. I've noticed in my town, I'll have handshakes when I'm not full of Feds. I've read this may be a problem happening to others as well. Not a big deal as I seem to be on schedule for presents, just hope it gets fixed soon!

    Cleared my town today (3 AM EST) to get started on the daily quests and visit friends and when I went earlier today to clear it around 2PM EST I had a TON of handshakes and ZERO FEDs running around. I proceeded to clear all handshakes and close the app. I then check back around 10:30 PM EST to clear my town for neighbors and still have ZERO FEDs. I did however have around 30-40 handshakes.

    Almost 24 hours with no FEDs but a LOT of handshakes.

    Argh! Every time I go to visit my neighboreenos I get kicked out of the game after 1 or 2 visits! What the?
    Is it my device or is something else going on? I've tried to hard close etc. but that doesn't seem to make it any better. Any help out there for me? I'm missing out on presents and donuts! Boo!

    I am having the same problem with the game crashing many times while trying to visit neighbors (playing on an android device). It has happened before in the past, and eventually after a few weeks of frustration it goes away as mysteriously as it started. If I remember right, last year when this happened was around the valentines event, and after it was cleared up on android devices, people with IOS devices started to complain about crashes.

    And by the way, I am having the same problem on 3 different android devices, so its not your device.

    Thanks for the replies everyone - I'm experiencing the same problems as Danco. I can send Feds, click on presents and have lots of Feds in my town (thank goodness!) but I can only get through one neighbour before my game crashes and I'm sent back to my home screen. Brutal! Hoping it goes away as quickly as it started, because I can't figure out what else to do.

    Sorry to any of my neighbours that might be on here!

    OP,
    I had to drop 2 neighbors this event. Their SFs caused the game to instantly crash when trying to enter. Both were complete house farms with no roads or visible space. I also have a couple of neighbors were I can enter and drop feds or click presents but the game hard freezes when I try to leave. Are you having problems with only certain neighbors or all of your neighbors? You can always try hiding suspected problem SFs and see if that helps.


    To maryclaire1,
    I think I received the full notice in your SF this morning.

    To patzmcm,
    I don't believe I've seen full notice in your SF yet.

    I started getting that issue yesterday. If it continues today I'm gonna reinstall the app. It happened to me last year with this very event and reinstalling the app fixed it for me.

    Maybe give that a try and see if it works for you.

    Starting to have similar issues. At first it was just one neighbor but now it's up to three. One crashes when you enter but the other two crash AFTER you've hit the fed button three times and try to continue on to the next town.

    I have one neighbor who I can guarantee I will crash when I exit their town, but I also have many random crashes while visiting neighbors.

    There were only a few of my neighbours that I couldn't send Feds too today, I can't remember if you were one of them. I'll let you know when I do my next round if I can't send them

    That's odd, honda. When I visited, you were full. Same as today.

    @Amazon Thanks for letting me know! This morning I counted and had 12 Feds and lots of handshakes. Hope this is corrected soon!

    I'm having the same issue on iOS. I can drop Feds and collect presents but as soon as I go to move towns it crashes. I tried re starting my phone. Uninstalling and reinstalling the game.... Nothing worked. I tried giving it an extra minute before I switched towns and that seemed to work. I have a neighbor who always h-words the game that I've been meaning to delete, but I noticed everytime I switched to their town that's when the crashes started. I deleted them today and so far no issues. This may be a coincidence but, two birds, one stone.

    I don't get kicked out after 1 or 2 visits, like the OP mentioned, but for the past 2 days, I had this same thing happen, but with different neighbors. Tap through my list, get to a particular neighbor with H as the first letter, tap 2 things and as soon as I tap the third, crash. Return to that neighbor, crash after crash after crash. Cool. That neighbor justs gets 2 out of 3 Feds or taps, no big deal.
    The next day, tapping through my neighbor list (no problem this time with this "H" neighbor's town) and get to a particular "W" (first initial. This is also to give an idea where in the list this is happening) neighbor, same thing.
    So, now when I crash on a neighbors 3rd tap, I'm just moving on to the next instead of returning instantly to crash.
    For me, and until EA fixes it or whatev, this is the fix from my end.

    I think it's time to just admit to ourselves these Feds are flawed. Take a sigh of dissappointment, and move on. I had about 20 handshakes and 2 Feds. Yesturday was a good day for Feds, but most days are not. They don't really add enough to the overall total, so I've decided that they are not really important to this event, a nice extra but not necessary.

    Hmmmm.. My town seems fine. I have no idea what is going on with other persons town.
  • edited December 2014
    Glad to hear it's not just me (well not glad, but you know what I mean). I can't pinpoint the issue to a particular neighbour unfortunately and today, burn of all burns, when I tried to start out in Other Springfield on the third tap I saw a donut pop up JUST as it crashed! Obviously didn't register when I opened the game again. I'm going to try the old total delete and download trick and if not, maybe things will improve after the event.

    Again, sorry to my neighbours! Hang in there with me!

    You have 2 towns? Anyway, good to know. Today seemed better, yesterday I had lots of handshakes and no Feds. Still getting knocked out of the game more than usual.

    That's good then.

    Good point about the problems being in certain towns - that is definitely the case for me - a few very full (and beautiful) towns are causing issues - and they are often full of Feds too.
