    @AngelAngel9 (US1), " I would love to hear the ideal solution but I do not think there is one"

    I think Uncle John has the perfect solution!! LOL
    The solution is easy if they are concerned about unfairness, all they have to do is find who was paid the most and, allowing for what we've already received, pay every player the same. !!!!        :wink:

    My championship coin amount appears to be fixed now.



    What is going to happen to the championship coins that were used to purchase other buildings before the trader was taken away?

    They are aware
    So what are they going to do with the ones that have spent the coins on stables or upgraded kites etc

    GGS specifically said ONLY the coins and boxes will be reset. So does this mean the people who spent the coins they received, in error, get to keep what they bought and upgraded?

    The claim by GGS was that there will be a disadvantage between the super high players and lower players yet the solution is incomplete and leaves a huge disadvantage between players who quickly spent the coins and players who played by the rules and waited. Those players who spent the coins get this HUGE bonus, a reward for NOT playing by the rules. And the players playing by the rules get what?   :/

    This is absolutely NOT fair!

    The answer is next time GGS stuffs up spend everything as fast as you can.  If they choose to ban players next time that's gold they wont get and we get a holiday from this sort of rubbish  :)

    They say that today they will fix this bug. Ok, they do, they took all the extra coins I got and give me as much that I should get. But what happens!! Another bug :neutral: Now I got cons an after one and I'm getting rich on coins again  :D

    There was one more wrong message but that showed everyone zero.

    Then all our coins were reset to Friday.

    Then a correct message with the correct coins

    lol, this is fantastic.   Those who listened to me and spent all their WWC coins got rewarded.   Spent all your WWC coins then got set back to where they were before problem happened then get MORE WWC.  WAHOO.  SO not only do I keep the buys but get my WWC coins back that I had before it to 40K SO this fix has made the problem even worse.  GGS has done it again.  To explain a little better, I had approx 40k before this happened, spent ALL my coins (as many as I could) including all that was rewarded by bug (error), get to keep all rewards and now back up to 40K WWC coins.  Original bug gave me approx 160K WWC coins, now I get and extra 200K WELL DONE GGS.

    They should have left well enough alone and let EVERYONE keep their coins.  But instead they make the problem even worse.  But it is close to what I said would happen, except it is even better for those that spent the WWC coins.  TOTALLY INSANE.

     I stand by my original post, GGS should've left things be.
     Who knows how much it'll cost them trying to fix it.
    With so much else going on the WWC is just one of those things that running in the back ground for me & when it's over I think that's cool, rewards will come in handy

    This is totally wrong, but I knew that some stupid fix like this would happen.  On the top servers of WWC they will get way more and I can assure you they would have upgraded their Kites.  They get way MORE WWC coins then I do on small server due to their server finish way higher in rankings.  SO now with this stupid fix, It will now become a lot harder to beat the larger servers on ML due to this WWC error and the way they paid out.  But then they are German company and Germany always has a couple of co ops in ML.  Who do you think this will benefit most?  It is viable now that players on higher ranking servers that spent on kite before they fixed could have 50+% more on their kites, but this fix made it fair....lol

    I was trying to show GGS what will happen if they don't fix properly, But as usual they don't listen to players with brains. 

    To be honest I did not actually upgrade kite once or use any of the WWC coins.  I have not even logged onto my farm since before this happened....lol.

    I don't think it is ok to provide false information about spending the coins when you were never online and encouraged other players to risk their accounts doing what you weren't prepared to do. It's one thing to do it yourself and tell others what you have done, but it's another thing to encourage players to do this when there is a possible risk of getting their account banned and you didn't even do it yourself, probably instead staying offline until the next WWC starts so you can run your half-time production boosters for a full week while the WWC is running.

    Now I guess we have no idea of what actually happened to the players that spent their championship coins.
    LOL Well it appears to me that the players who SPENT their Coins are well off hmmm!!!!:-(((((.. TBH I think this is totally unfair.. DU is in my Coop and on a cruise and He really hasn't been on during this BUG.. So he didn't benefit from this at all

    Hi Bobby. I never said that he was benefitting from the bug. I was simply stating that I don't think it is ok for him to encourage others to take advantage of bugs while lying about doing the same thing himself. There's one thing if he is mentioning the options as well as the risks that go along with them while he is taking advantage of it himself, but it is another thing if he is lying about doing this himself and doesn't really mention the risks.

    Yes, the players that did spend them appear to be well off at the moment, but we don't know if GGS plans to do anything else about this. But this is a benefit of looking back on the situation after it has occurred, as players have been banned when acting like this in previous situations before.

    Personally what I'll have to say is that mistakes can happen anywhere, no one is free from mistakes, we all are humans, I've also done many mistakes.

    This is a personal post of mine  and not an official one.

    So is the situation considered as being resolved now? I have read on other forums that players have lost gold mystery boxes from the issue and there are still unanswered questions such as if anyone spent the championship coins before the trader was removed and if anything has been done about that.

    Mistakes definitely happen. I make them hourly!

    But the resolve of this one is not right. Where so many players get to keep the WWC coins because they spent them. And the rest get theirs taken away. I don't mind that I don't get to keep my coins. It was obviously a mistake and they were never really mine. I do greatly mind that others get to keep theirs.
    This is just so incredibly unfair.

    As of now, I am so discouraged by this (and past things like the lab situation) that I don't see much point of playing a game where anything I do via work (my time) or money will be taken back, undone, or downgraded at any given moment.

    I really do hope there will be further action by GGS to make this right.

    I understand that some of you are not satisfied with the resolution taken here, we'll surely forward the information to the team, no worries!

    Thank you BugsBunny. I appreciate your work. As well as all of the moderator's work.

    ummm... I think the problem is double standard. 

    1. Double standard between bugs benefiting players and bugs causing losses to players. The former one was fixed quickly and exploit was prevent quickly, even with the cost of damage to players (in this case, not being able to spend championship coins and for some servers, not able to open gold mystery boxes); and the latter one is not being fixed in a long period of time (for example, the bug in FHWE that brings the time down to 3-5 hours from 11-14 or even more when herring reaches level 8). 

    2. How GGS handles different occurrences of these bugs. Previously, this bug occurred and we were able to keep the coins, and now we were not able to keep the coins. A few years ago some bug occurred and some players exploiting it, possibly without knowing that they were exploiting a bug, was banned from the game. However, now those players that upgraded their buildings during the disable of coin shop, gained an unfair advantage, which GGS claims that the reason for all this, was to remove the disadvantage of some players, and the action of GGS did not achieve its goal. 
         In addition, last time the bug occured, I gained around 4k coins. This time, I received 13k coins. Where is the standard on the amount of coins (or, more generally, the number of times the coins were awarded) that determine we can or cannot keep the coins?

    Thank you. Can you please confirm whether anyone purchased anything from the trader and whether we were actually able to spend the championship coins on upgrades such as the acrobatic kite and the efficient olive grove? There has been a lot of speculation about this, but no one has confirmed that this actually happened or that it was even possible.

    I can confirm it for you.  I know of players that used ALL the WWC coins and got it as exactly as I said.  Reset back to where it was before and kept upgrades and not banned.  What happened was EXACTLY as per my previous post.  Those who spent ALL their WWC coins got HUGE benefit.  They even got back the WWC coins they spent on upgrade that they had before the BUG.

    It is totally wrong, that was why I said they should have left well enough alone or TOTAL roll back, not half measure approach.

    I was trying to make at least a little fairer to all players.  At least if you had of spent the coins, you would not have missed out as much.  Because I was not logging into my account does not mean I would not have done it if I was online, I def would have.  For me 1/2 times for 1st week of WWC was more valuable, I don't do CC (missions so kite was NOT high priority for me).

    Thanks. That was what I was trying to discover as to whether that actually occurred or not.

    I understand about it being more useful for you to focus on the WWC. I just don't get why you had to lie about the situation when you could have just given your honest opinion about it and almost certainly have created the same impact.
