    Expansion limit-question not complaint

    On the 80 expansion tool purchase limit....

    Does the 24 hours start at a certain time?
    From when you make your first purchase?
    From when you hit your limit?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nick implied it was once you hit the limit. If I can find it tomorrow I’ll link to it.

    Once you have reached your daily buying limit of expansion and upgrade materials you will get a message from the game. Wait for 24 hours and you will be able to buy more materials in the Roadside shop."

    a DAILY limit means it is only for 1 day. I would like this clarified as well.

    is the 80 max for a 24 hour period and if so, when does it reset?

    or is it more like a 24 hour penalty for reaching the 80 limit, in which case it is not a daily limit at all, but you could buy 10 on Monday, 10 on Tuesday, 60 on Wednesday and only then it stops you for 24 hours ?

    this really needs to be clarified please. And why can’t we know what the amount / counter is?

    and why wasn’t this information rolled out to us so we would understand such a major game change ?

    I may be over thinking this....

    But if, let's say, you hit your 80 at 10:00 on monday night, right before you go to bed.... you cant buy again till after 10 tuesday night. So you actually miss on tuesday then can get back to it on wednesday morning.?

    Or do I have that all messed up?

    It’s really unclear. I hit the message around 1 hour after the update yesterday. 24 hours later I still had the message. I was able to buy tools this afternoon, I have not yet hit the message again. I would like to do a transaction tomorrow, but I was assuming I would have the full 80 availability but the way you’ve suggested it’s possible that I will only have 80-what I purchased today?

    Thats so confusing !!!! Someone who knows this - can anyone help ?

    I'm speculating the following. Team Hay Day didn't roll out the information because they wanted to surprise the players who broke the TOS by using bunnies and the wicked, wicked bunnies authors.

    I was hoping Team Hay Day hadn't released the information about the daily limit for EMs and UMs to their Youtubers, but alas they did and allowed time for the bunny authors to adapt sooner.

    Again, the above are my speculations. But I do hope the bunny authors were caught totally by surprise.

    I tested it and the time seemed to reset when Alfred comes with the mail and Greg fills his rss.

    According to the information I received the limit should reset at the same time as your farm “starts a new day” and every thing else is reset as well.
    So like gymgirl said the same time as Alfred comes to visit, Greg has new goodies in his shop (when he’s supposed to and not with the current issue), and the WoF truck usually drives on your farm etc.

    Thank you! ClashOfHolmes for an awesome sig!

    A "new day" is always midnight UTC (12AM UTC). That's when the 80 limit will reset.

    Current UTC is 09:27 on Wednesday, 23rd of October. Here's the UTC website so we may know the difference between our local time and the UTC. https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone/utc

    BTW, I think it will be more interesting if the game resets the daily limit only after we reach 80.

    Ducking for cover,
