    Booster change?

    Was there a new change to the way we can swap boosters?

    I have several that are diamond ones- that I do not use, but usually swap them out when i get one that i do use from chests, boats etc.

    I just got one (a Tom) and i wanted to swap it for one of my diamond ones but they were not listed.

    Is this a new thing, a glitch or just something odd for me?

    Thanks!
    Kathy

    I could be that the team was trying to fix a problem too, and didn’t quite finish it.

    I was having a problem when I had the same booster but some were free ones and others were diamonds. Even though I was activating a free one, the diamond booster was the one that was activating.

    Let’s hope both issues get fixed.

    That is true. 🤔 That happened to me a few times before the update.

    If itís not a glitch though I donít have to think about it. Iím simply not buying any more boosters. Iíve already stopped. It makes no financial sense at all for me so Iíll just go back to playing booster free.

    This is one of the new features that comes with the new behavior; the oldest (same) booster you have will be activated, so it doesn't matter if you choose for a free or paid one.

    So as the situation now stands: bought boosters cannot be traded and the non-bought boosters are subject to being deliberately selected for use, by the game not the farmer, in priority to the non-tradeable bought boosters. Greaaaat.

    After the optional update today- April 20, 2020- it appears at first glance the booster traceability is back to normal!
