Lightning Blitz mode

[Post New]by Theorem on Mar 15, 14 6:55 AM
Hi everybody!

Am I just being extremely unlucky (because I like it a lot) or did the Lightning Blitz mode completely disappear, except the one on split screens?

I can still see it on the "change mode" section (but would I spend my so precious gold to change mode? Nope!) but except for this, nib nada zero for a (loooooong) while.

I hope I am wrong. Scrambled and Lightning are my favorites, and HOP Ticker could vanish if you ask me!

Did you notice anything?

Have a lovely weekend!
Happy gaming!

Yes, I have noticed. Have rarely gotten a lightening blitz all week but get the ticker almost every time.....

Don't know if this will help you or not, but what I do if I don't like the mode is go back to the main screen and then back in again. It usually (but not always) changes. Most of the time I don't care what mode I'm in except when I'm on 2X. Then I like to do the split screens as they go so fast you can accumulate big bucks very quickly.

Come over to my manor , I get lots of lightning blitz still, and since I don't care for them, if the HOS is in that mode I find a different HOS to play...

It seems to have deserted my manor also. Yesterday it was around, but today I haven't seen it. I use the lightning blitz to take a break. If you just let it run out it's done in 10 seconds and you get almost as much silver and XP as playing it.

I've got lots of lightning blitzes over at my place. I'll sell them to you for gold.

I seem to be getting the normal amount of lightening blitz. It is my favorite mode except in the split screen scenes when I hate it. I know I'm a little strange because the ticker is my second favorite. It is well named since it seems to get my "ticker" racing.

Hello hello!

Well, it looks like there might be a problem with some manors then. I restarted the game (even my computer!), visited neighbours, did anything I could think about but still no lightning blitz mode at all on regular scenes. I don't really know whether this mode is a good payer or not as I play for fun and not for the "reward", but I miss it!

Moose: thanks for the offer! :-) I'll bring over ... er ... cookies or rhum??

LaReina: mmhh... as I have almost no gold, I don't think it's a great deal. How about we exchange: I trade HOPs and Normals, I have so many of them!! :-D

Anyhow, I am quite ashamed for having done this for such a small thing, but contacted CS and we shall see...

Thanks a lot to all of you for having checked!! That's really nice and I appreciate!!
Have a great time!

Theo, thanks, and no offense, but you can keep the HOP modes.

I either totally avoid them or hit one item and let them just run out. Can't stand them. Would not shed one tear if they were to vanish inexplicably into the swirling mists of the bayou.

Gee, some of us are so observant- others (me) not so much. I checked my manor a few times and sure enough, not one lightning blitz mode to be found outside of split screen. I have Ch 1-14 open and checked them all.

I like the lightning blitz in regular HOS games, but hate it in the split screen HOS. Then again, I used to hate playing those split screens anyway. But now they are my go choice to gather some quick silver. Go figure.

Oh yeah- still HATE the hop ticker.

I am mourning the loss of the Lightning Blitz mode. It is my absolute favorite. I'm not having much fun playing lately, what with the constant crashing, loss of energy, and now no Lightning Blitz.

Sad, but maybe time to take a break.

Same for me. Yesterday I got five in a row, now not a single one around ... probably a change of weather?

I'm wondering if this is something that's peculiar to some manors and not others.

I went to my manor just now to check and I have lightning blitzes for scenes in Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4 (3 scenes, no less, and NOT the split screen!) 7, 8, 10, 12 and 13.

Maybe they do rolling lightning blitzes now?

I am with Winfrey, I like the lightening blitz, but I love playing the HOP Ticker mode. I love the challenge!

OK you guys have jinked me and the lightening blitz. I went in to play this evening and before starting I checked and there were no lightening blitz scenes anywhere except for the split screen. I collected gifts to up my energy to 100 and played all that, checking all chapters after each play. There were no lightening blitz anywhere except the split screen the whole 100 point session. The other modes seemed to be pretty well divided, every other mode was represented. I want my lightening blitz back! And some cookies would be nice too.

Love all the modes, but I did notice today that no lightning blitzes were available. Tried everything, but they are ALL gone (well, unless maybe I pay gold to change the mode). Another fellow player says hers are fine and she also plays on a PC. We both installed the most recent update, so something is amiss.

Look forward to hearing what customer service suggests.

Hello hello!

Just wanted to let you know about the progress of my request sent on the 15th: I received an answer from CS yesterday but it was unfortunately a general message (it looks like they are very busy on the crashing problem which I perfectly understand).

I replied to the message explaining the problem again and we'll see!! I'll keep you updated!

Have a lovely day/evening/night/whatever! ;-)

Just noticed: Lightning blitz is back!

ETA: Oops! Disappeared again. I saw it only once at a premium scene.
