Receiving gifts not on my list

[Post New]by KayteCat on May 12, 15 6:25 AM
Has anyone else had this happen where they receive gifts that are not on their current list from one of their friends? Whenever I get a gift from one particular friend, it is a gift that was on my list several months ago.

I hadn't received any gifts from this friend for several weeks, and when I did it was for gifts I had requested those several weeks ago, and then I was getting that same gift each time s/he gave, like it was a backlog of delayed gifts.

I just got one from this friend again yesterday.

I now have 31 wreaths of justice. Okay, I have a lot more harpy feathers, chains of blood rubies, vampire palms, celestial pendants, and signs of steadfast faith, but I actually USE wreaths of justice, so to have that many tells you how many of this gift I have gotten over the past few months, despite it not being on my request list.

So, anyone else had this happen? Anyone need Wreaths of Justice (or any of the other abundant things I listed above (grin))?

KayteCat - You would probably do better by sending an inquiry to Customer Support. Be sure to include your Player ID and the Player ID of the friend in question. This will help the Tech Support people take a look at both games to figure out what is happening. The devs may have to delve into this, so it may take a bit more time than usual.

I hope the folks in Tech Support can resolve this for you. They are usually successful even if it takes awhile.

KayteCat, I haven't received gifts not on my wishlist BUT I clicked on a gift to send to a friend, and when the card turned around, it had sent a completely different gift that wasn't even on her wishlist. This has happened a couple of times.

I've experienced a Gifting Glitch as well. One of my MC Friends and I talk on the phone several times per day. We definitely see this happen after we change an item (or items) in our Wishlists and try to send each other Gifts ~ the change is NOT immediately reflected on what our Friends see and can Gift. Must be server lag. And often what we show we sent each other and the Gifts we actually received often do not match.

It's a bit tedious, but we found that we BOTH must exit/enter our games for the changed item(s) to appear on the Friend's view of our respective Wishlists every time either one of us makes a change. We each have 3 Castles going.

SHEESH!!! At least we figured out a workaround for this issue

I should add we play on PC.

Strange isn't it I wrote a post just yesterday saying that sometimes when I send a gift the picture they show of the gift sent is not the same as the one I have actually sent a few others seem to have similar problems

A few times I've had friends wish lists showing 6 items instead of 4. I would imagine that some of those items were old wishes and some new. You must not be alone in this problem.

Yes, that has happened to me as well, but when I leave and return to the gifting area, it shows that I gave the correct gift.

The other gifting glitch happens (I think) because of time zones. If I give a gift one day, and then try to give the same player a gift just after midnight, it sends the gift, and then I see that I get it right back (I see the -gift, followed by a +gift). I think that happens when the person I am gifting to is a time zone (or more) away, so while I am entitled to GIVE a gift to her, she is not yet able to RECEIVE a gift, because to her iPad/iPhone, she is still on the same day as my last gift.

I HAVE ONE FRIEND WHO HAS ONE OR ANOTHER OF 2 GIFTS ON HER LIST. I DO NOT RECOGNIZE THEM BUT WHEN I CLICK ON THEM IT SHOWS THAT IT WILL COST 0 DIAMONDS TO SEND IT SO I DO. I WONDER IF SHE IS REALLY ASKING FOR THEM. ONE IS A SCROLL WITH THE LETTERS D E V ACROSS IT. THE OTHER IS A RAISED STONE MOUNTED ON SOMETHING SQUARE. I HAVE YET TO CATCH WHAT THEY ARE CALLED. I DO HOPE IT IS SOMETHING SHE WANTS. SHE RARELY ASKES FOR ANYTHING.

KayteCat,

You can only gift the same person in a 24 hour period, the gifting time slot are midnight to 8am, 8am to 4pm and 4pm to midnight, if you gifted in the 4pm to midnight cycle you can only gift that person in the same cycle the next time,

Hope this has helped,

AG1

If you are receiving gifts not in you list believe me it's nothing they can do about if you email them.

I have 2 accounts for midnight castle one on my iPad which I'm experience the blue dot and stuck on level 26 and the other level 9 on my iPhone with no problem so far, I have the same friends in both accounts, but in my iPad with the blue dot my friends achievement didn't change they are frozen in level and same gifts. Looking in my iPhone I see they are up in levels different pictures and different wish list. I feel bad sending them gifts they no longer need and my new account low in level I don't have what they need.

The game is great but need a lot of fixing .
