For the past 5 days I have been having issues with the crystals spawning in my keep. I have owned the keep and the dungeon since the 15th, and in the start it was all good. But for the past 5 days, the spawning and re-spawning rate of the crystals (more so the colored ones) in my keep has gone way down. In the time it use to take me to collect 300 (total), I am now getting about 100 in that same time. And just now, i went to cash in my recent collection, and all my previous earnings have disappeared. Any one else having such issues. The only issues I have seen reported to date is feeding the monster in the dungeon 50 times (worried about doing that to).
They had a fix for the dungeon a while back (November 14th, I think). There was a bug with the "Talk To Barlow" function, where a user would be able to acquire items without having the required number of crystals, and there was also the issue with the creature becoming "broken" after feeding him 50 gnomes. Both have now been fixed. I fed my creature 50 times and got a little peep companion (so don't be afraid to feed him, he's probably pretty hungry by now!).
You bring up a good point about there being fewer crystals. I noticed this too, but thought perhaps my space has been a bit laggy. But maybe, as a part of the fixes, they decided to make the crystal game more challenging? I hope not... I didn't have a problem with the amount of crystals I received upon going to the space before.
What we need to do is get a list going of all the people feeling ripped off by this purchase. Its misleading and false for heavy water to state if you buy stuff, your crystals will spawn according to a maxtix, when they know the place is having big issues that they and sony refuse to deal with.
Avalon Keep is the biggest joke in home, and the MODs who sit around and ignore everyone who has posted simliar issues, seem to be too busy moving threads around to actually respond to paying customers.
Anyone considering buying it, it is a great space to decorate if thats all you want to do, but if your buying the keep to unlock rewards for your friends and yourself (which is what you pay for), spend your money elsewhere. Waste of money, waste of time.
There are still major issues with avalon keep personal space and club house it is now 1/16/2014
and still no fix can't turn in the crystals can't get into the dungeon or kings quarters. And we even had to pay for then separately. Still can't turn in crystals in hexlon village either.
IT NEEDS FIXED!!! OR GIVE US OUR MONEY BACK!!!
