    This morning I whacked all my snakes and then went to visit all of my friends to leave eggs and collect. When I got back I had lost over 50 snakes.

    This happened to me lost close to 50 snakes. I guess the only option is to not visit friends or delete them. What other option is there?

    Lost between 30 and 50 visiting friends. Awesome.

    Yup, it definitely seems to be related to visiting a friend’s town, at least one that has snakes. On and off, trying to pinpoint the cause, I’ve lost over 70 snakes already since yesterday. This is indeed a horrible glitch and I’m very disinclined to visit another friend and if I lose one more snake, I’ll be dropping all my friends until the problem it’s fixed…not fun at all!!

    If this not a glitch and done by design, then it's a poor, poor decision by EA. I've earned some whacked snakes by spending real-life money on donuts to buy the snake rocks (premium decoration) and now, those snakes are gone!?

    Bottom line, whether glitch or not: I'm pissed and I want my snakes or my money back.

    I just lost all of my snakes and am down to zero now. So much for being excited about this update.

    I visited around 40-50 friends without a problem and then went to one and lost abut 30, tried to tap them all but every time I gained around 5 I'd gone down by about 10.

    Presumed it was the Lisa quest but now I'm unsure and guess it could be a glitch.

    I lost 60+, which sucks. I would like a stump or log since I have lots of trees, but if I can't rely on the snakes sticking around, forget it.

    so i noticed a drop, and figured I'd do some tracking.

    I started tracking my numbers as I moved from town to town and here's what I saw...

    visiting 11 friends, and had not drop of snakes.

    when I entered the 12th friend, I lost 20 snakes - I went from 917 snakes and 43 eggs, to 897 snakes and 43 eggs.

    So that svcked. However - I had a ton of snakes in that town. I don't have the elite license, so I should only be able to hit 5 snakes in a friends town, and that has held true for me so far. I left that town with 914 snakes and 51 eggs.

    So although I lost 20 snakes when I went in, I ended up only down 3, and whacked 25 total snakes in that one town visit

    I went to 3 more friends after that, and was only able to whack 5 per friend, but didn't lose anymore snakes. I'll keep tracking as I move through, and see what happens.

    Yeah, happened to me. I lost 46 snakes- all I had, I just started whacking this morning- after visiting friends to give them eggs. I found 4 more snakes around, went to finish my friends list and they again were gone. Now I have 7 and I visited a couple if friends and I still have those. I'm logging in now to check again.

    I'm not sure if this is relevant or not but I only have my first whacking license (which is 5 snakes per friend) and in some of my friends Springfields the game lets me tap 10 sometimes 15 snakes instead of only 5. I have no idea what's going on, could someone please explain maybe?

    had over 200 snakes. went and did 3 actions to all 100 neighbors. came back and had less than 100.


    also, noticed that my egg count went to 0.


    gotta be a glitch.

    I also noticed that snakes would dissappear while I was in someone's town.

    in a town, selected the whacking menu.

    had 995 snakes
    Whacked 3 went up to 998
    went looking for #4 and 5
    had 990 snakes
    wacked 8 more in that town for a total of 11 whacks, and 995 snakes (got 3 eggs in that set of 8)

    Got up to 1000 (finally, took a few more towns to visit)
    went to my springfield, go the notice that I got the balance beam, placed it, and only had 995 snakes.

    I think it's related to the XP syncing issues. That or there's some part of the Whacking Day metagame they're not explaining.
