I don’t know what glitch caused the prevention of issuing the “free” silver chest, or who even cared enough about it to complain, but the “fix” for it - “We have added new items to your account” message forcing a restart. Is the all-too-typical PG answer of fixing a minor problem with a bigger one.
This message’s appearance forces a player to stop whatever they are doing and restart their game. Fortunately for me, it has only happened when I’ve been in the middle of typing a message, or waiting to back-up a player on a resource run.
At best, it is annoying. At worst, it could cause serious problems if it kicks in during an attack.
Silver chests aren’t really that important, and I, for one, will never miss getting a free rare storm striker rune, so can we either find another way to distribute these that DOESN’T interfere with game play, or just forget about them until you can fix it properly?
