On 11/4/2012 the US clocks are going to shift an hour back. The game clocks are set for Pacific Standard Time, so you will see some changes to your collections. Please let me know if you experience any other game issues.

For anybody wondering, I think you should expect your collections to occur one hour earlier than the times you are used to collecting (if you synch).

I can say that this is already true for my account, so fair warning. Set your alarms back along with your clocks!

Wtf my boss is bugged. I only had like 3 hits left to finish him off but none of my hits will register any damage and it says I only have 20 mins left all if a sudden

My boss is bugged too. An hour just disappeared from the timer and when I hit the boss he hit me back for 85 damage in one hit!

Not cool.

Edit: My stamina is bugged too. 10 fights just cost me 30 stamina. To be as clear as possible, I literally did 10 attacks, no more, no less, and 30 stamina was removed from my total.

Yeah my boss decreased by an hour, what was 1:20:00 became 20 minutes so I'll just leave it for later. Needed 12 hits from what it looked like with the buffers.

It would have been a complaining thing if I had spent gold, a very rare occasion indeed, yet I'm not really bothered since complications were to be expected and I can just try again in another hour anyways :D

4 of my buildings rolled back a level and went into and are now stuck in update mode and my energy and stamina are no longer replenishing. Please fix this sooner than later.

It's a visual glitch, let the upgrades time out and then you'll be fine. How long are the upgrades for? Sounds like for most people they seem to fix after a short amount of time.

Yeah, make sure if you have alarms you set them back as well.

i get what you're saying, though i wouldn't exactly call it a visual glitch, since my game is basically frozen... still no stamina or energy movement, and buildings still in upgrade mode.

Also when the upgrades all complete the collection timers start at zero.

I must admit, as a veteran coder, I find this sort of "glitch" appalling. Temporal data management is programming 101 stuff...

Major bug found here. Just finished upgrading a church to level 8 and the paid 46m to upgrade a loft to level 9. Closed app and logged back in to see my new IPH. And now 50% of my buildings are upgrading. And a few building. The upgrades/ builds will take 50 mins. Then they will be back to there correct level. This is all very odd. My real upgrade loft and real build Russian restaurant is showing correct times. So in theory my hood should be back to normal in 45mins. But I am guessing its messed up my collection times.

Also it has reset my boss counter and my energy is frozen.

I have submitted a ticket.

Ok update.
Buildings now back to normal but energy still frozen. This is all very odd.

Second update.
Energy now back to normal.

Seems as though some of mine have been extended for an hour extra, anything I should be worried about or wait till morning my time?

During the time shift all buildingds are collectabel one h. later, that is fine as with the correct time management we can manage to collect just one h later. However, i get bevore I can collect the notification that I was robed, and as the buildings comme to collection, they show up as robed. Hence I can not prevent to loos money even if I updated my collection time management.
I remember that we had similar issues in the past with this sommer/winter switch. Is there a vital sync I am missing out or dors any one ellse having this problem? Any suggestinos?
Thanks

In the uk it happened last week. So all my buildings got robbed before the collect sign came up. So there was no possible way I could of avoided being robbed.

-edit after my collection time came around my buildings popped up already robbed.

I get robbed even before i can collect. for example: I'm in my hood waiting to see the dollar sigh abobe my hotel and when it appears its not the dollar sign but the robbed sign. When i check my Newsfeed it said you were robbed 38 minutes ago.

i had all my buildings synced 12/24 and the 12's popped up before the original sync time. I also had multiple buildings upgrading this morning. :mad:

I don't know what to say here, I have had almost no issues with my account other than that bit of weirdness around 4am (est).

I set all my alarms back one hour, my iPad automatically adjusted the clock back one hour, and just like always my alarms have been going off and seconds later my buildings pop up.

Considering the amount of other issues I experience, and both of the last daylight savings time changes caused me problems, I think this time actually went pretty smoothly. 

Everything went smoothly for me. The only weird thing I noticed was I collected my NCs early this morning without restarting the app and they stayed on sync at the same time as before while everything else moved an hour.

all my times are correct and i adjusted accordingly to the time change. it just buildings getting robbed before they are due. and when they are due they pop up already robbed. that was only my 6hrs though everything else went smooth

I lost over $3M when my buildings got robbed before their collection times came up.

No robbery before collection issues for me.

Does this mean I was spared an issue that affected a lot of other players for a change?

at some point in the past week I've had my energy and stamina clocks reset back to 1:00 and 3:00 respectively after having awarded reduced times several months ago

Just happened me in the uk today, I'd been getting robbed messages on my wall when no buildings were ready all day, then I actually saw my 24 hours buildings come ready this evening in an already robbed state, grrr!

ditto that problem, but only my 48 hour stuff was robbed before I could collect, the only buildings to remain unaffected are my 24 hour buildings, although the timings are 1hour ahead of where I want them, but that's no biggy. all other buildings have been robbed as a result of my drunkenness over the weekends after the clocks went back in the uk.😁
