Alphabetical Friends am I missing out?????

Sure, being a "Z" probably hurts you with your Neighbors. But random attacks should be fine. I would think you should get as many of those as the rest of us.

I'm an "M" and I get a ton of random attacks.

    Probably doesnt help being Z i would have thought, but as Mister Zombee quite rightly said you should hopefully be getting some random attacks, I'm N and i dont get a great deal of attacks tbh

    I'm an N and I had 3 random invaders during the night, but I had maybe 6 revenge attacks. I'm spreading nerds far and wide, hoping they induce responses, because waiting for random attacks doesn't look like a great way to earn elixir/coins.

    This should not be am issue. The random thing is random.

    But honestly, i like scrolling in reverse through towns, starting with Other SF and going back, because i can hit the "go left" button easier than the "go right" with my left finger on my tablet.

    I think you can add a number to the front of your name if you want to move to the front of the list.

    I do this too! I switch which end of the alphabet I start at every other time!

    For now I attack my favourite forum players (independent of their names), the ones that I kind of know virtually, that's just how it is....and of course I revenge as well!

    Ditto. Though I never have enough nerds to get everyone... :x

    You could be missing out from your friends but I have noticed I haven't gotten as many attacks today as I did yesterday.

    Also want to note that most of the time I visit my friends backwards starting z after visiting "other springfield". I do this because my game often crashes while visiting friends so I always make it as far as I can starting from Z then if it closes and I have to start over I will start at A, saving me time of needing to scroll through pages of friends to pick up where I left off.

    I know there are people that keep track of the friends that visit them - so if you are inclined to do so you could just start replacing the friends that never visit you with new friends... It takes time but if it bugs you that's something to think about.

    I usually go backwards when I visit friends because hitting the back button on top left corner of the screen is easier then hitting the next button on an iPad. So my neighbors end up being luckier if their names start with Z.

    With that said I'll always give forum members priority if I have limited amount event objectives to do.

    I guess it'll really come down to what kind of neighbors you have. It's like they say, "choose your neighbors wisely." And with this game it couldn't be truer. :lol:

    don't attack your friends! The event rewards you for attacking random players

    Perhaps you won't be as shafted as you thought. I know from other games I would deliberately skip over people who had obviously chosen their username to get to the top of friends lists or go backwards to hopefully give some less-visited people a go.

    Yes, I try to alternate from the end of the friend list, to the beginning, to the middle, to try and get everyone involved, until we have enough minions that is. :wink:

    my account starting with S gets way more action then the one with B.

    I go front to back and then back to front on both

    You get bigger rewards by attacking random players, so don't bother attacking your friends. Save your valuable nerds. Also it is fun to snoop on total strangers rather than the same old Springfields, lovely though they are. Attack five buildings in your Other Springfield every day - it cannot defend itself. :)

    Fair enough, but I don't think any reasonably active player will have trouble completing either way, plus I like to help out my neighbours, expecting they'll do the same for me.

    As to the OP, I alternate moving left or right from other Springfield, using one or two nerds per town so as to spread the nerd wealth. I usually make it about halfway through my list before running out of nerds.

    I don't revenge random invaders. I take down names of neighbors that attack and attack them back once I have nerds.

    My towns are n- and s-. I've had 32 random invaders today in my s- town and 15 in my n- town.

    Only if you win that attack.
    Clearly best for using cheaters against random castles.
    Otherwise it's a gamble to attack random.
