2 days ago, playdom implemented some changes to wild ones on facebook.
1) they added 3 background musics for maps
2) they changed the cost, cooking time and damage improvement of snacks (watermelon, coconut, super salad,...)
Some weird bug came up. When people used 2 treats to order 1 watermelon, once the watermelon was cooked, they got 130 treats. And people could repeat that for 2 days, until playdom fixed the snack bug.
However, many many MANY people exploited that bug as much as they could, and now many many MANY people have several thousands of threats, all obtained thanks to this bug. Now every day I see dragons and platypus in game, as well as clothes from "collection raffle". Also, most of my neighbors display pets now are bats, hamsters, and there are several dragons and platypus.
For the last 2 days, my friends and I have encountered many people in matches that used invisibility potion, game over nukes, gama stars, kamehameha wave, poison cloud. Before this bug, you would barely see those weapons being used.
Also, since many people are now abundant with treats, they use 3 super salads (3 x +150% = +450% damage) and shoot Gama Star, AND they get about 20,000 points with each attack. So at one moment you can see red team with 1,500 points and blue team with 24,000 points. By the time the game ends, one or both of the teams will have 48,000 or more points.
People also shoot kamehameha and game over nukes all the way in these fights. People who are in the match, unable to fight back those with thousands of treats and massive weapons, leave the match immediately and search for another one.
Sadly, this is happening more and more often. Some of my friends are seriously thinking about quitting Wild Ones, just because of this massive treats abuse. I didn't play wild ones a year ago, but my friends say it was more fun, because there were no nukes, lasers or other massive weapons.
When lasers, nukes and others big weapons appeared, it kind of ruined the gameplay for them, but they continued playing because you could still find people that used mostly rockets, grenades, or beehives. Sometimes you would meet a hacker, but fortunately they wouldn't show up frequently.
But now, you enter a map, and people with food buffs (super salad) start shooting kamehamehas.... This is disastrous. Those people are not even hackers, they just exploited a bug in a "legal" way. But this seriously ruins the gameplay. How can you fight a 20,000 damage Gama Star or Kamehameha if you can't fight back, or don't have treats to buy salads???
You can hardly find people who aren't using massive weapons each round.
That being said, the bug has been fixed, however that only disabled further exploits. Thousands of people have already obtained thousands of threats, become members, obtained platypus, dragon, poison cloud, and all massive weapons. I even found a video about that bug on youtube.
Seriously, you have to take actions right now. Many people are enjoying the massive weapons right now, but those other people who can't stand up to them are thinking about quitting wild ones. I've heard many people complaining about this bug.
What I think would be the best solution is to reset every account, which means when you log into the game, you would need to create your first pet (dog), you'll have 0 treats, 0 medals, you'll be a fresh starter.
I think that those who actually pay with credit cards or paypal to get treats, and all the members that just play and not bother with treats would consider this the best solution. Just removing the treats from every account wouldn't suffice, because many people already have members pets, and have already bought too many destructive weapons. They would never have a need to pay money for treats, and they would still be able to fire strong weapons (even without super salad).
Also, 1 of my friends got her last medal in wild ones like 2 weeks ago. She used up all of her medal treats and she was satisfied with her accomplishment. However now she has 0 treats, and weapons she received from gifts or bought with coins. She told me that if playdom doesn't fix this global disastrous situation, she will quit the game, because among other things, in the last 2 days, she lost a few matches to guys with 20,000 damage lasers and similar. We don't see any real competition in the game anymore, unless we are lucky to enter a map with all fair people. Both teams shooting each other with massive damage weapons and saying "jajaja" is just ridiculous. It was never this bad before. If someone fired a gama star, you could fire one back. But now how can you fight a super-salad super-stats powered pet's attacks?
Playdom is gonna lose its players (especially those who use money to buy treats), unless this is fixed asap! People have already been unsatisfied with weapons like gama star and game over nuke, but thanks to this bug it's much worse now.
Also, consider fixing the snack fire power boost too, because even if you wiped the whole server, hackers could use salads for 20,000 lasers.
Please ACT NOW!
