    @hpwulola What does that actually mean... "live data will be reset"? I don't understand. Should I not use any of these items during that time? Will those items be unavailable for use during that time??? Please help me understand. Thank you.

    Why not take the game offline during this time? Based on the disastrous results last May when game data updates were done while people played, it seems like just shutting the game down for an hour would be a much safer choice.

    @Kodokmag yep!

    a calamity wiped out hundreds of Pois in Minneapolis/St. Paul. December 17.

    @hpwulola ditto to @cosk62

    Will the POI server work return the missing POIs in the Twin Cities?

    Have y'all seen out outage map?!

    And ditto @MtPollux is the update safer to do with the game offline?

    Would it really have taken you that much time to just add 2-3 lines to the message to actually EXPLAIN what you'll be doing to the poi?

    And once again: fix the **** in-game announcements, what about people who don't check this forum?

    (I've now taken the habit since missing out on december special event with TTD and fortresses)

    As usual: love the game, hate the communication around it.

    • I believe this will correct our Wayspot syncing issue. We will be keeping a close eye on things, please keep me updated on how your maps look! Thanks for continuing to follow up with us on this thread.


    this is what and why theyll be doing on monday.

    It would be good to tie this POI sync into the upcoming Brilliant Event.


    Say that the muggle reporter noticed strange things happening at important places. Their local cafe suddenly had a place for customers to grow plants, or their local church seemed to have people arriving more often, outside of the usual hours.

    Thanks but... Still don't get what they'll be doing, and if it's safe to play during that time.

    @Karmassus theyre doing it b/c POI sync has been broken since June. (poi sync is what migrates/adds/integrates newly added POIs (potential new inns/forts/GHs) into the game), theyre fixing a bug which might/can/will help more ppl get more pois near them, even possibly accessible from their homes, and although theyre not fixing it for this reason it will help w the pandemic, if you -can- have 1 or more pois accessible from home then you dont need to go out to refill SE or plant stuff in GH etc.


    Essentially -if it goes well- it's a bug fix on somewhat of a core-feature of the game that's been broken for months. In fact if you add the 1 month mid-march-late april that it was also broken the POI sync has been broken for nearly a year of the game's life. That's nearly one year w/o any new pois in-game. I'd say the fix has been a long time coming one and very much needed.

    Alright, I'm reassured now. I've just got several paramount portkeys in a row. Is that to compensate the missing POI?

    Yep... nothing reset. No new POIs. Looks to be another failed attempt at a fix; or someone forgot to schedule the task properly.
