Re:Trouble picking up items in Spring room HOS

Bad again today - 6 - 10 taps for most items & long delays to get drops or room changes. Lots of "no connection" & "please wait". Very frustrating.

Mind you, it takes longer to check the list and then find the item than it does for the random choices. As this now seems to be the case for the basket and tea table as well now, even though the items there used to be easy to get without looking at the list, methinks something has changed. Perhaps the devs noticed that many people posted that they didn't look at the lists and so developed a "punishment" for clicking on something not on the list.
Just wondering!


It's always been that way.. the item HAS to be on the list to be collected.

I find the clock HOS frustrating, aggravating and somewhat annoying, I'm about to make my reservation for the Special Room and get me some little blue (or white, or yellow.....) pills. I just can't seem to get a rhythm going so how I got 295,740 for the clock is beyond me.

Keep stormin' the castle.

Update:
Easter Basket 296,240
Tea Party 296,250

1457051, sorry, I didn't mean for others to post scores in a new thread. I meant post scores in THIS thread - but in your own post. I edited my old post and included it here in THIS post. BTW - you have GREAT scores!!! AND, DoubleMsMom, SUPER score. So far, you're the CHAMP of the Clock!!!!!

OK, scores are "rolling in"! Super. I won't tell you what I have since there are already some winners here (much higher than mine). I'll check periodically and update the top ten in this post for each HOS. Just to be fair, I'll only include the top score for each person (no multiple computers - sorry 1457071). I'll also only include YOUR top scores - not your friends. They can post if they want and I'll add the listing.

Apparently I improved my score in the Clock yesterday - now at 271,620.
Basket - 294,370
Tea Party - 294,330
Terrace - 295,400

Obviously, I'm in 6th place in all of them.

OK, I'm impressed with the scores!! I'm REALLY impressed with scores over 296,000. I'm at level 84 and I don't believe I have a score over that. And no, I'm NOT going to go back through all the HOS's to check

Just for the record..... a score of 296,900 is a "glitch" score and should not be counted. It generally occurs when the player's Internet has a hiccup and causes delay in the counter.

[Post New]by Fred_just_Fred on Apr 9, 18 3:00 PM
Annelliegram, just give me "something" that would cause hiccups. It would be nice (just once) to have the top score!? I know that you have played LOTS of HOS's, so have to ask, do you have any scores over 296,000?

Thank you so much Fred for starting this. I took a "screen shot" because I know I am not #2 much less #1 but will happily accept it for a short bit. LOL-1457051....I would love a glitch also. Attie

Fred & TLB, my internet connection frequently has "issues", so I have a couple 296,900 scores - in the Belfry & Crypt. And as you can see from my "real" scores in the Spring rooms, they are quite unjustified, & therefore bring me no satisfaction. I'm actually a bit embarrassed by them.

I've been told it's caused by the timer never starting, but I honestly didn't notice - I really don't pay much attention to it.
If I had seen it happening & known what the result would be, I'd have gotten out of the HOS & restarted it.

I had a 296,900 in the Belfry before the scores were all reset ..... hubby was working on something that caused the breaker to flip (the router is on that breaker) ..... I was playing the Belfry at the time and almost finished when the connection dropped. I left the room open until router connection was restored and my score got recorded.(At the time, I was ecstatic with the score. This was before I knew it was a "glitch" score. When I learned that, the wind went out of the sails. I was actually glad when the scores were reset. My best Belfry "real score" before the reset had been 295,860, and I have never been able to replicate that real score).

I am not particularly fast .... I get occasional scores in the 295k range, but generally I'm getting the 274k range because I just can't seem to find that last item before the slider runs down. (This is "best score" numbers .... I would say that my average score would run closer to about 247k .... and I sometimes end up with something in the 185k range, although I do generally get at least 200k final score. My times average between 35 and 45 seconds...... with some less and some more.)

The faster you try to go the more your heart rate and bloodpressure go up!
So being a #6 is just fine for me.

And you get the same items everone gets

Happy storming everyone

And actually, that's one of the best things about MC - you don't HAVE to be fast. You never run out of time or "lives" or energy, & you're not penalized in any way for being slow.
I probably wouldn't still be here 3 years later if we did have to be fast to get anything accomplished.
I don't pay attention to the timer because I don't have to!!!

To quote part of what you said, I "sort of" couldn't agree more. HOWEVER, I'm guessing that you "peek" at your score and others. I confess - I do. That said, since I started this insane posting of scores, I get to set the rules. You know - kind of makes me feel like a ruler (OK a bad ruler; nevertheless, a ruler). (1) I will continue to post whatever scores are submitted. (2) If all the top scores are greater than 296,000, I will increase the number of levels to greater than six! One last confession - I would still like to see a score on my HOS greater than 296,000!!!!!!!!! One final comment - I HATE the clock HOS.

I lied. One more "final" comment - 1457051, you want me to post my scores. I will (maybe, possibly, perhaps) post my scores after "everyone" else. One more "final-final" comment/question - if anyone has better rules, let me know - PLEASE.
