Flowers/Diamonds

Is it me or has anyone noticed that, since the update, Diamonds are no longer being dropped upon collecting flowers....

You are probably just having a dry spell. I got a diamond yesterday but hadn't gotten one for close to 2000 flowers before that. Its too bad that they drop so rarely and randomly. It would be nice if it was a predictable number so we could work towards them instead of relying on luck.

I have had two since the update. They don't come very often. I also had one that I lost into the void with all my lost coins, that was very disappointing.

I'm getting diamonds at about the same rate I was before the update.

On average I am still getting one diamond per 450 drops... Doesn't seem to have been changed by the update.

This is really strange because I haven't had any diamonds drop in 3 days, even though I collect more than 1000 flowers.....

The thing about averages is that the actual length of time between events cab be very variable. I've had diamonds drop as follows:

730
835
1450
1985
2230

There is no actual pattern; stick in there and keep collecting - they'll drop at some time. If this game teaches us anything, its patience!

Is anyone else not getting the coins? Each 3-4 drops it doesn't give me the coins.

I very rarely lose coins on the drops now, maybe one in 50 times. I just make sure I'm not clicking on anything else when the coins are dropping, and that solves a lot of the problem.

I lost gold from the flowers a handful of times and finally figured out why - at least for ME. I was rushing to leave to another area too soon.

I'd get the 5th flower and gold coins pop up in the middle before being credited, and I'd already be clicking to go to another area. No coins credited. I tested doing each a few times - being patient and let them credit - and not being patient and leaving right away. Sure enough, each time I rushed to leave I lost them. I now wait until they are credited and that issue is gone for me. Perhaps this will work for others.

Good luck!

Two times in a row I received a diamond (first was after 1030 flowers & second after 650 flowers). Immediately after collecting the next 5 flowers, I was given another diamond, but neither time did it add to my diamond count. Another little glitch.
I used to average a diamond about 1/271 flowers. Now it's up to around 1/353.

I just got my 3rd diamond for collecting flowers since the update, or I would have if it dropped. Not a happy camper . Still, the 2 I did get is more than I've gotten for a while, so the diamond gods must be on my side for the moment.

I keep collecting flowers, but when I check to see how many I have, I varies wildly. I can go from 65 to 44 in 15 minutes...how can I be going backwards? Then when I check again, it will be 50. I don't get it...

Suz,

Welcome to the forum! You may want to post this in the technical issues thread. Your right, somthing is wrong.

Good luck!

Suz, are you looking at the achievement for collecting X number of flowers in X amount of time? That would explain the fluctuations. There's no timer indication inside the game to know when your 30 or 60 minutes starts or ends. So if you check your count then the timer resets before you check your count again you could see that sudden decrease in number collected.

Check the count of total flowers collected, located in the list directly under you name and avatar on the achievements screen. (left side of the screen) You will have to scroll the list down a bit to see the flower collection count.

Hope this helps.

I've been very very fortunate regarding flowers and receiving coins. I haven't had a non pay issue with my game but I did go through a VERY long dry spell where I didn't get any diamonds for over 2,000 collected. Since the update before last, if I concentrate on picking flowers in between HOG in every single scene, I've been receiving diamonds again at a rate of about 1-2 a day. I figure that's about 1 out 150 - 200 flowers. I really thank the diamond genie...the diamonds have come in handy when trying to complete these quests that want duplicates!

Happy questing,

rbsworld

I've probably just jinxed my game by the mere mention of how lucky I've been...

the flowers are in every location of the game (not the HOS though). They are camouflaged and they morph (fade in and out). Take a few minutes to look at the scene in front of you and look for movements. When you see the flowers click on them. For every 5 you find you get 10 coins. There are usually 3 in a scene when you first enter it. Some are easier to see than others.

In your social page there is a search area where you can put in codes or names to invite them to friend you. There is a thread on the forum with friend codes given by people who are looking to find friends. I always forget my friend code but if you want to add me to your friend list my name is Laura MI/USA.
