Devices crashing after update
Supercell has taken note of players being affected by issues like crashes following the release of the new update.
The company has released a list of the issues that are being affected in the game:
- New crops, Tea Leaves and Onions issue cost diamonds immediately though there should have been 3 free ones of each. The issue has not been fixed for those who installed the game early on, but it has been for those who have had not opened the game between two of the maintenance. Supercell promised those facing issues will be compensated by donating the missing crops. It noted that it is compensating affected players with 10 diamonds until it has something better.
- The event changed from a global fishing event to boat orders. This meant that everyone who participated and reached the global goal missed out 5 diamonds. Supercell has donated back 5 diamonds to all the affected players.
Supercell advised those facing crashes on Android and RSS/Newspapers to try and disconnect from Facebook in the game.
Temporary fix issued
Supercell has noted on its Forum post that it has come up with a temporary fix for Android crash issues. It also noted that players will not be able to see the images of their Facebook friends for some time, and it is preparing an optional update for this too. The optional update will be released on June 22.
We are back online! Android crashes should be fixed (tho no avatar images), and who didn't get the crops should get them from the mailman!— Hay Day (@hayday) June 21, 2016
