Some thieving tykes just stole 20 snakes from me! I'm going to struggle to get the first prize at this rate.

When did this become anti-social gaming?!

Visited some friends and gave out 20 eggs. Came back and lost 50 snakes.....from 71 snakes to 21. this sucks

I only send lisa to other springfield, but I think people who get their snakes stolen, are just going to start stealing snakes from other friends making things worse.

I just wish there was some way to tell who steals from you.

It's been explained that Lisa just sets snakes free to be whacked again. So I guess that means it just kinda throws you back a little... You'll get all the "stolen"snakes back, right?

Some are glitches- think about it you're all saying you lost like 25. Last I checked 25 wasn't in the 3 times table- making it impossible to lose that total.

If you can divide 5 by the number you lost, it's the lisa task, if you can't divide it by 5 it's a glitch. So 25 divide by 5 is 5. So 5 friends plotted against you.
Lisa's task gives you 3 snakes for its completion, so it's not whether it divides by 5 at all.

Yes,Lisa's task only gives 3 so why are so many people saying 5? Does your bonus% boost the payout of snakes the way it does Xp and money? Surely not...

The only time I've lost snakes was when I tapped on a snake in a friends town just to see what would happen, which was nothing (I can't whack in friends towns yet). I thought.

So confused...

Honestly I don't think it does- it sounds to me like people are exaggerating how many they lost just for the sake of complaining about EA and making it sound relevant. I mean seriously 50 doesn't fit in the 3 times table either so we either have numerous people that are awful at maths in the forums or its a rather large bug in the game.

Wish it would tell you who it is that's stolen your eggs so at least you would know who to get them back from

Well I lost about 9 snakes, so that makes sense if 3 of my friends sent Lisa to my town, right? But someone on the forum said it's not stealing. The snakes have been set free, so you should whack them again to put them back in your inventory. But it doesn't seem so, to be honest. After I came back from visiting friends and saw 9 snakes missing there were no snakes in my town to whack.

I lost 90 snakes that was a days work. Seems pointless to work all day to have them stole. I guess having 100 friends doesn't pay.

Clearly people aren't gaining back what they've lost, so either Lisa's task is a non issue or it's not. But people are clearly losing snakes after they visit their friends and they don't seem to be getting them back. I can see how it would be harder for those with higher snake totals to keep track of their snakes after they go visit everybody but there's obviously more going on here than that 5 snake Lisa task hypothesis

I agree with you, pete did his test and saw he got 5 back after losing 5, but when I visited my friends again I was 20 down and 20 did not come back only 2 did. It's very off putting to wanna go and visit my friends and I think they'll feel the same about visiting me. I've had hardly any eggs today also. So I'll be progressing through this at a snails pace.

I'm not denying that there is a glitch visiting friends losing more than 5 at a time or so. I was pointing out that it was tested with the Lisa task and five did go missing not three like the other poster that thinks we can't add.

I was about to buy the Fort Sensible when I lost all of my snake after visiting my friends.... :twisted: :evil:

I'm not saying there's no issue, just it's definately not being caused simply from Lisa's task, you can all see that right? I think it's a syncing issue, but screenshot your town everyone you leave and enter, then you can see if the totals are changing- obviously whack snakes before as Lisa's freeing some. The only proof I have is the 3 snake reward but you don't need to be an A* at maths to see that. Maybe there's a coding issue then, after all te reward is three- I'd be Surprised if EA intentionally hid that you lost more than it says you are meant to. Ill probably see what your all saying at some point. I've not lost any snakes yet and I'm at 360 so we will see

Thanks for the advisement. I wasn't clear on that task, so good information to know!

Yeah this is infuriating, I nearly had the fort and now I'm two digits again. I'm deleting my friends. Anyone want to add me? Mwilsonsix

I lost about 30 snakes whilst visiting friends. What's going on?

I read this post and was like "Glad that didn't happen to me! But I'll go leave these eggs in the Springfield I selected for the Lisa task because I didn't know what was up." and when I came back to my town literally a minute later, I was missing fifty snakes. From 108 to 58. Yep. This is annoying.

Thank you!!!
It's my first whacking day, and in less than 20 minutes I collected 46 snakes and now they're gone.

Yesterday I deleted all my friends except for family because of losing snakes. The only people I have added are those who have commented on this message.

I have not lost one snake since after the purge.

And thank you all for the eggs. I have been returning the favor.
