I'm afraid to try.

On Facebook, Darcie (the game rep) said that she'd let us know when the maintenance for the update was complete. So far, she hasn't let out a peep.

I hope they're not encountering problems at their end. That could be a tough fix.

Tried to play today but got the message to update. Went to Google Play but no update. The message says to wait and try again in few minutes. A half hour later and no luck! I'm not sure what's going on. It's very confusing.

Yes just got the update. Looks just like on the pc and I have now been forced to update. So close to getting to max level and being able to do rounds and build inventory and coins. The tournament icon is greyed out and says coming soon and I had to restart the game as all friends except John were missing

I got it on my Kindle. I still have my blue quests that were open. I haven't seen anything different yet.

It looks like all the rooms, HOS's and ZZ's are now stored on our devices rather than the BFG servers.

I was told by the game that I needed to update and it took me to the update on Amazon.

I did have to go look for the update on a previous update. I found it in the store.

I have a Kindle and was able to do the update just fine. Everything works fine and I am able to progress with the exception of the Tournaments (which just states "coming soon").

I play on a Kindle Fire, and the tournament icon is no longer greyed out, but when I click on it I get the message that the tournament is over with 100 gems and no participants. I wonder if this is expected behavior? There should have been a tournament that started a few minutes ago.

Thanks

It's working fine on my Kindle Fire this morning. Last night the tournament icon was grey, but I received a notice a while ago that the tournament will start soon, so I guess they just held off until they could see that most of us had successful downloads.

The Find button works on the DQs now. I know most people here were and still are concerned with the change in the drop rate, and I agree that that's a negative. But I'm really very glad that we can now use the Find button when doing the DQs. That was a problem that needed to be fixed ASAP, and now it's done.

Hi all. Can anyone tell me exactly what has changed in the game because my kindle is telling me it's updated but I can't see anything new?

One of the best things is that when gifting you now get the choice on most items to buy them with coins rather than spending diamonds if you don't have the item but want to gift it. I like this feature. We've had this on the pc game for a while now...really works for me. I can do that for a couple of friends, go to an HOS or 2 and recoup quickly rather than using up diamonds.

My both my Kindle games updated just fine. In fact, my game on my older Kindle HD I use as a feeder game is running faster now so it's not so frustrating doing the HOSs. Before this update it had such a slow reaction time it made doing an HOS a hair-pulling experience. It's so much better now.

On the pc update, at a higher level, several of the HOSs changed with new items and features/backgrounds. I'm only at level 17 on one android game and 24 on the other so my HOSs are still the same so far. I expect they will change when I hit a higher level just as my pc did. I can't tell you what that level is since I must have been past the point of change on my pc because once I did the update, they were different. Those changes were: Throne Hall-Mirror Nave
Ice Rock-Winter Garden now Summer Garden; Castle Entry- Elfish Base Relief; Dungeon of the Cursed- Castle Armory

Not sure what others changed as I was only at about level 28 or 29 on pc game at the time of the pc update.
I will 'assume' that the android HOS sites will be the same.
I'm not far enough long for newer pets to open up or other newer HOSs.

Nothing new that I can see. I am still getting the horrible 15 coins or 1 shard ( never use them, Trina is only a way to spend your inventory, waste of time) ever 8 out of 10 times...luv it.
