Promises, promises

[Post New]by Shirleygames on Oct 5, 14 9:00 AM
Okay, right off the bat, I will apologize for this little rant but seems to me somewhere the Mod. said the developers were working on the problem with the number of Unique stamps that were being dropped. Seems this last update did not solve the issue. I just completed 6 rounds of HOS's available to me at level 39 and not one Unique stamp, a couple of rare and unusual and a few more plain but I was surprised at how many of the scenes I only got something for my inventory, something for my airship and the gold coins, not even any pet food.
Am I just having a run of bad luck. Even my pets are only bringing wooden and rusty chests.

I noticed the drop rate has majorly decreased for all the stamps with the new update.

I think this really depends on luck
Found 5 unique stamps today playing a total of 2 rounds - gifted 4 (perhaps that is the solution? As I stated some weeks ago, I often get back what I gifted ...)

I noticed that if I have the Unique stamp on my wish list, the game rarely gives me one. Try taking it off your list and see if that makes a difference. Also, you may try changing avatars. Some of them give more stamps, and some give more food and less stamps.

Finished round #7 still no unique stamps. Reached level 40. I don't have a unique stamp on my wish list and have gifted a few to my friends. Had to spend 5 of what I do have to complete a quest. Think I am going to call it a day. Maybe I will change my avatar next time I log in. Hate to see the old one go as I chose it cause it seemed to fit my player name.

The same with me Toffifee !!

Sometimes I gift an item which is the last of the kind and then after playing the very first HOS I get it back !

Perhaps it is a way to encourage gifting !

In another thread, bfgVaiya has confirmed that there was no fix to the stamps with this update.

I agree, in the last 2-3 days I have probably received 15 Unique Stamps. I've gifted about half that amount.

I have changed my avatar, gifted unique stamps and still day 2 round 8 and still no unique stamps. Just about ready to throw in the towel, especially when I hear others are getting several a day.

I noticed the more correct clicks of the items on the list and an even tempo of finding them brought me the unique stamp more often. But it changes all the time, this game is sooooo unique in that way nothing stays the same for very long. I guess it is to keep us from getting bored.

When I was short I found I did get more when it was on my wish list.

Anyway, get it on your list and I'll gladly send one over, Shirley

I have tried every tip and trick I've found in the forum, but my game remains the same. I have not seen a unique stamp for almost a week. Airship items are low, Pet food is low. I'm thinking it's all hocus-pocus and not fair to intelligent people to set the game so that we have to change avatars, gift back and forth, and all the other desperate things we are trying in an attempt to play this game as it's meant to be played. To those of you who ARE having luck, congrats, because you are the lucky few.

LOL This sounds like the tricks to try and get items on the WOF. Wait till midday, stand on left foot, hop twice, clap hands in "Shave and a Haircut"...

If this IS luck..... I might as well jump off the cliff now, I haven't had a stamp drop in days! Luckily I do have great friends...
Vlania I tried that standing, jumping, rubbing stomach thingy and the only thing I got was worn out!
I give, I give, I give.......done for the day so no stamps yet again!

I had a run the other day where I got a unique stamp at least once around the HOS. Then nothing, I'm having a hard time with pet food, too. Every couple of updates this happens.

After 3 days, 2 avatars, and gifting I finally got one back today. Fortunately none of my current quests require any so thanks FudgeChi for the kind offer, but I still have a few in my inventory. Just found it very discouraging that I was getting nothing especially with my pets not producing as well.

Let's hope it's the start of better luck. Once you have a few of something in your inventory they generally tend to drop a tiny bit more.
