I'm taking a break but I check in on the boards and it's a fairly common problem, causing people to worry the game is coming to an end. It's supposedly NOT but... with the mystery box extravaganza and the lack of updates, it's a little worrisome.

Connection issue to be sure. I'm usually booted once per login.

That last sentence is spot-on, but my gonzo KEM farming style...

Costs me $5m every four hours, so lack of cash is still an issue. I spent a week building to $26m, started spending on KEM's at 9pm last night, and have $5m left.

This is how the Futurama game basically died. Servers still up but players ghosted by the developers as far as new events.

Who knows though. Maybe resources are just temporarily diverted or something.

That's good news. I've been playing for several years and it's been a nice daily distraction. It sounds like it ain't over yet.

That's good news. I'm curious if it'll just be a token update or something significant.

Yesterday it made me do a massive update. I had to free up space on my phone. But no change to the game. I figured it was timed to start today.

So far I canít get on today.

Small in-game download happened. Looks like it will be some sort of mini-event that may not start until tomorrow morning.

No content update for the Kindle Fire yet, but the zoom issue was fixed.

New quest just started for me. Looks like the ladies are complaining about their mother's day gifts.

I already had 12 quests running, so this just adds to the madness.

There is currently a bug in the 3rd part where 200 event currency is required to move on but the User Interface caps you to 150.

You can get around it by finding Moms manually to send on their currency tasks.

Everything seems to be back to normal for me except I still got one server error when I first signed on.

Yeah, the server problems seem to be rampant and continuing.

Short mini-event. I blew through it already for a few hundred donuts. It filled in a couple of gaps in my "sets" of characters.

I was really glad for a break, but I hope we get a real event again some day. These are perfectly cromulent updates, but I'd like to have actual fun a few times a year.

I've got this game set up where I'm cranking out 24-30 donuts every 4 hours.

New event has started today. It looks like it is four "mini-event" style activities in a row, lasting one week each.

I was wondering when they were going to have a new event, seems like it's been a while. I just put Bart on a three hour task at the recycling area so I have to circle back after that.

Event starts with 6 second tasks for Homer, Bart, and Lisa.

I just got a huge wonking update today for the game and now it's zoomed in a little too far. I can't pull it back further to get a wider view.

I checked the Google store thing and there are no updates since the event update of a few days ago (6-3-2019 is the latest update date).

I am back into the game. I got the update right after my phone had an update this morning so I'd wager that it dumped the local TSTO content.
