With the arrival of Peter’s Booty Haul TinyCo surprised us with a new event area right bang in the middle of our ocean. It looks great but with Phase 3 dropping there’s been some questions being asked over and over, so I wanted to bring you a post where I could answer them for all players to see, as although it’s never nice to have a problem in your game it’s sometimes reassuring knowing others are in the same boat. And thanks to Bunny as usual for taking our issues to TinyCo. The main questions we’re seeing so far are….
Can’t complete Pt. 5 of Punting Treasure as exchanging Oranges for Gunpowder aren’t registering: Getting quite few comments with this and my game was also impacted by it. However Bunny tested in her game and contacted TinyCo and I’m glad to say this issue is sorted. If you go into your game the task should now complete without you having to make another exchange.
UPDATE 9/17 BUNNY: Some Facebook Users are still having issues, they are working on it and hope to get it resolved over the weekend.
Giant Squid hasn’t showed up in my game: Update 9/17 I know some of you are still having issues with the Giant Squid, please report this to TinyCo through your game, and we will do likewise.
The Giant Squid will show up at some point before Pt.7 of the main Questline, Punting Treasure, so don’t panic he’s coming to your game soon, we just can’t say how soon. But check as you may be able to earn Broken Oars and Rusty Anchors before he shows up if the tasks that drop them are showing in your game now.
UPDATE 9/17 BUNNY: The Giant Squid it seems should trigger for most Players by Pt. 4 of Treasure Punting. If you do not see the Giant Squid by then, try exiting out of game and restarting your device. If this still does not resolve, please let them know from your game. They are still looking into why a handful of Players are not seeing the Giant Squid.
Is the Leaderboard live as in my game it shows it is undergoing maintenance: Yes since release of Phase 3 the leaderboards are live, your flags are being counted and you can see your flag total at the top right hand corner of the Leaderboard screen.
Bourbon isn’t dropping: It is an uncommon drop and drop rates seem low, Bunny has raised this with TinyCo.
UPDATE 9/17 BUNNY: I have discussed concerns on many of the drop rates. Hopefully some changes will be coming soon. 🙂
Part 9 of Trawl of Booty won’t complete so can’t move on to Phase 3: Please ensure there isn’t a game update in your app store, you’re looking for Version 1.28.5
UPDATE 9/17 BUNNY: Most devices should have the 1.28.5 Update now (iOS, Google, Kindle). TinyCo is aware that a handful of Facebook Players still have not got it however. It seems Facebook is behind for some reason (similar to when Kindle takes longer to push an update than iOS or Google). TinyCo is doing all they can to try and resolve this over the weekend. Hang in there. They are doing what they can.
Side Note Bunny 9/17: Currently Captain is not voiced in the game. TinyCo is unsure if he will be able to be voiced. (This all goes back to that AMA and licensing availability on items.) Will update if hear anymore on it.
