I started this game just a couple months after it came out, and like you, I've seen so many changes over the years. Most for the better. Anyone remember the old Bow Figurine? When that changed there were many players complaining about unfairness that new players had it so easy while we'd had to suffer and struggle. I wasn't one of the complainers. I'm happy for new players who won't ever even know about that nightmare. I lost my game once, and had to start all over again, and it was a million times easier the second time around.

That's why when this happened I thought it was another change they had made for the better. I am so sad to find out it isn't. I expect in this case my glitch will disappear with the next update and I'll be back to the usual Trina Quests again, so yes, I'm making the most of it. It is rare for a glitch to actually give you something good, normally they are bad. I don't think I have an unfair advantage. It most likely won't last beyond the next update, which isn't that far off, and it isn't really going to help me much with the two Trina achievements. I'm severly limited in the amount of time I have to play each day - 1 hour normally - and at most I might be able to add another 50 or 100 quests to my total. As I'm only at 144/145, that is a tiny drop in any enormous ocean.

I seem to have had two separate glitches, and it makes me wonder if they are due to the issues I was having with the game a few months ago. If you recall, Elephant games had me delete a bunch of stuff. My other glitch was of the bad kind - I lost all my collected flying objects from the Christmas, Spring and Autumn events. Every single one. It took me a lot of time, effort, and diamonds to complete those collections - and it's all gone. I've had to start from scratch and re-collect everything from this event, and will have to do so again for Christmas and Spring. But I don't see it as unfair that this didn't happen to everyone, that it only happened to me. Despite it, I still consider myself fortunate not to be suffering the 'Please  Wait' issue so many are having.

There are lots of things going on in this game all the time that mean some people have an easier time than others. Some people are lucky enough to never have problems with the game, others lose there game and all their achievements, and avatars they have worked hard for and can never get again. The game can be cruel that way. It can also be as simple as some people have more time to spend playing the game than others, therefore can accumulate more, progress faster, and achieve more. I'm one of those who only has an hour a day I can play. In all the time since Trina started, I have only managed to get 144 of her quests done. Even with this glitch, I'm never going to finish this achievement, and never going to catch up with people who can play longer than me. And I don't begrudge them that. I celebrate the achievements they get that I know I never will. Those achievements for 3, 5 and 10 daily quests are something I will never achieve. They are completely out of my reach. But I will celebrate the day one of my friends turns up sporting one of the avatars you get for those achievements. 

If I could share my luck with everyone I would. I'd love to be able to gift this change to mdpetdoc up there, or to you, both of whom are so much closer to the end than I am. I'd love to sit back and cheer you on to the end. Maybe it would have been an unfair advantage if it had been a glitch received by someone who could use it to complete the Trina achievement. That person isn't me. And surely no one would begrudge me the few extra quests I'm going to be able to add to my pitifully low number?

Then again, maybe the Devs will see this thread, and realise everyone wants this, and reduce the amount for all. That's what I'm hoping for, however unlikely. 

Same thing happened to me. Just finished a long-delayed airship one with the castle challenge, then got 13 zzz and 13 hos! I’ going to run with them while I can!

Yay Lady Pirate! I'm so glad I'm not alone in this unusual good fortune. Go for it and good luck! I wonder if there are more people out there who might have this happen if they could only finish up the long one they are on.

I had Trina waiting for an airship and thought I'd go ahead and fulfill her wish ... just to see what happened. She came back wanting another airship of 300. Oh well ... smile

Sorry about that. It would have been so nice for you to join us. There's only two people reported having this so far. Maybe next time? Mind you, it doesn't really make any difference if Trina asks for 12 wheels (my current one), or 300, you are probably still going to use the same amount of airship items to get the wheels.

Who knows why this is happening, so there's still hope for next time, right?

Hi, all!

Glad to say the same thing has happened in my game: getting trina quests that ask for less. In my case its 13 ZZ, 22 HOS, 130 airships etc.

AND, MY FREE SPIN AT MY FORTUNE WHEEL IS NOW RELOADING AFTER ONLY 2 HOURS!!!

WHAT IS GOING ON???? Not complaining just think this is crazy LOL

Wow, that's a new one, haven't heard the fortune wheel one being reported before. Mind you, most people (myself included) probably don't go into it after our free spin, so might never notice. Everyone needs to check there fortune wheels to see if this is happening.

The numbers on the Trina quests are quite random as well. Mine have all been 5 ZZ, 5 HOS, 2 shards, and 13 wheels.

The more that gets reported, the crazier it seems. I'm so happy it's not just me anymore.

Well, my Trina quest currently wants to send an airship (300). So I'm waiting for the CC where we have to send 3 airships before I do anything. That's not far off.

Mine only wants 13 wheels, but since I'll have to pack a full airship to get that, I'm also waiting for the next airship CC. Lower Trina quests don't really help when it comes to airship ones.

I have always had the fortune wheel getting weird reloading times.  I think that maybe it has it's reload at the normal 24 hours, but if I don't come back to it just then, it subtracts the time.  So if I do it one day at noon and then the next day don't get to it until 6pm, the reloading time will be 18 hours.  So if I get to it REALLY late, it has a tiny turn-around time.  Whereas the Lucky Diamond spinner will start it's reloading clock only when I finally get there and spin it.

Also, I've never fiddled with it with a clock to see if this is really what's happening, it's just what I think is happening.  The only thing I can definitely say is that the Fortune Wheel timer is all over the place for me.
