Okay so I waited until the timer counted down until 00:00 and then I opened with cash. I got a sorry:( But then the options didn't go away! So I attempted to open another one but free and anther sorry but that is unimportant. I got 2 opens in 10 seconds without spending any gold. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

I've never heard of the second attempt being succesful. Anyone have a story there?

Yeah, it's been discussed a few times. Funny enough it was bigflan who brought this to my attention, lol.

...make that, it WAS, after the dev gods read this!!! ;p

...until then, be very careful if you have gold though... i've discovered that it is an easy way to hit the reset too!!! hahaha

Got this happened to me before. I think that's because during the first open, your device is unable to sync with the server, due to poor network connection. That would registered as a failed open.
But you are given a second chance because the server did not register an open in your first try. Hence you are given a second chance to open again.

Yes, it is a glitch in the system, I have like a 65%/35% 5% of the time it opens in the second try) getting something in the "second" try, I have even gotten event parts, or 1.25m cash, but it does not happen alot
My experience is I get about 3-5 glitches per event

Once received the "sorry" screen and when I clodes that I immediately received a unit. Figured I just received the wrong message. This happened only once though.

I have had this almost every event usually 3 or 4 different times. I have gotten as many as 3 successful opens I. A row once. I have even had failed opens, when I came back an hour later I had another part added. This is real for sure, I am proof.

Generally, all the really important stuff is done server side. However, the client app does a lot of stuff on its own which gets communicated to the server later. It is a notoriously difficult thing to keep a client and server synchronised when both can register independent operations.

I've had this a few times, but unlike poopenshire, I've not managed ever to get an item, or any successful opens. Before I read poopenshires post, I suspected that the server is set up to report a 'fail' whenever there is sn item is opened in the cool off time.

Saying that, if the Poopster is correct, this maybe more complicated....

I will attempt to get a video or screen caps on the next one. Usually I get defensive cannons and ghost hounds. Only once during the 2 or 3rd event did I get a part. Once and a while I get valor and or money, but the units are the most common.

it's happened to me in prior events. One time I got six opens in less than a minute 5 sorry's and ended up getting sea propellor on sixth try.
