[Reported] 10th crown of the day doesn't appear

Platform, device version and operating system:
steam, newest game version, win10

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
after daily reset and 80mins of playing explore 1 I found 9 crowns in about 20mins, but since then crown “10” isn’t appearing. I expected this to happen, obviously.

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
just today, for now…

Steps to make it happen again
play.

btw: I have confirmation of many other players (discord, ingame chat) that also can’t find crown 10 with over 100… → now over 200… matches between finding crown 9 and expecting crown 10.

@Kafka @Jeto @OminousGMan can someone pls check?

please also check the overall appearance rate of the gnomes during this vault event. it feels very low compared to previous vault events and since weekend-solutions to problems haven’t always been the strongest quality in the past it would be nice to not have the whole vault weekend “wasted” for the players.

Over an hour wasted on the xbox trying to get the 10th battlecrasher today on 2 accounts, girlfriend also can’t find hers… 4 other people in xbox global 1 complaining they can’t find the 10th battlecrasher. By the way when I say an hour wasted i’m not talking about an hour to get 9, i’m talking about an hour after I got 9 looking for the 10th.

Didn’t this exact same thing happen last time around?

Not sure yet if bad luck or bad coding. I’m in the same situation, got 9 crowns pretty fast doing E12, then switched to a fast team for E1 runs. Around 100 battles later (E1, pet rescue, some more E12) I’m still at 9 crowns, gnomes didn’t show up either. It’s still in the “remotely possible” range, just very much different from what I experienced all the other days since the kingdom pass released.

I noticed too that the overall gnome appearance is seemingly very low.
I don’t believe in “bad luck”. This phenomenon is happening to a few players that have noticed the exact same thing. It got noticed in multiple discords and also in ingame guild chats. I’d rule out “bad luck”…

Happening the EXACT same combo here. Can’t find the 10th crown + low gnome rates just like a non-event day.

The Gnome spawn rate definitely seems correct for a Vault event.

I’m not aware of anything we’ve done that would drop the Kingdom battlecrasher spawn rate too low for #10 today vs any other day.

It doesn’t appear as though there’s an issue currently and certainly nothing has been changed that would touch battlecrasher spawn rates - the number of reports is what is making me sus and getting the sanity check.

It’s currently after 7:30pm on Friday here so I won’t be able to reply immediately but I will check back to see if I have a reply from the team later tonight/in the morning. Assume it’s working as intended unless you see me pop back in this thread.

If anything IS wrong the team will fix it, I may just be slower on the communicating that back to you if I don’t see the ping (need to go afk to grab dinner).

It’s really weird, it looks like those players having difficulties finding the last battlecrasher also have difficulties finding gnomes. I actually got at least 5 gnomes (first mail reward) as part of hunting the first 9 battlecrasher, then everything dried up. Still not entirely sure if there really is an issue, I’d test some more but I’m expected to work now. :see_no_evil:

Me and some guildies have the same issue, we’re stuck at 9. Also the Gnome spawn rate seems very low, like there’s no vault event.

Our guildmates are stuck on 9/10 too.

Compared to all previous days of the kingdom pass I today played 4 times the amount of matches. I’m sure there’s others that already posted here with even more matches and no success of finding #10. The first 9 crowns appeared like normal. Then everything just stopped for the crowns.
And my suspicion goes as far as to say this “bug”, due to whatever caused it, also causes gnomes to appear in such a low capacity that this weekend at the current state isn’t worth playing. This is just bs. “working as intended”? Come on…

it should.

Overall, thanks for even reacting to this thread. Even though it most likely only happened due to the number of people posting here experiencing the same - yes… bug.

Same issue in my PS4 guild. One guy said he found 10, but could have miscounted. Or the vault event code could be messing it up for some people - isn’t there an exception where a battlecrasher can never override a gnome?

We already had this problem during nexus kingdom campain. And we always wait the compensation. I am angry about 505 games, they never lern about them mistakes.

Bit different issue, but pet gnome spawn rate has gone down lots since 6.4.

Usually find few in a day. Now its more like few in a week. I would say the drop rate is more like 1/3 or less than before. No data to confirm this, just a questimation.

To add on what may have caused the 9/10 issue. people on our discord said to have poped a Gnome-a-Palooza right after the reset to get the Pets rolling on their guilds for the weekend.
Since GaP basically forces all four enemies to be a Gnome. some people may have got their battlecrasher spawn but then get their fights completed without killing the actual battlecrasher.
Everyone relating the crown issue and super low gnome rates crafted a GaP early at the reset.
That’s the case on our discord at least. GaP and Battlecrashers having some weird interaction or breaking stuff.

I just wanna report that my partner is also stuck at 9 having dome three hours of low level explore.
And your absolutely right, we have faced this issue before.

@Khuzvhan → My case was the following: I started 30mins before reset and collected 10 crowns of the previous day with around 10mins left until daily reset. Then closed gow completely, waited for the daily reset to happen and started up gow again and started playing again until I found 9 crowns. Then at some point I felt impatient, because if you play this game for a long time you have a feeling for when it should’ve already dropped the 10th crown. At some point, I kept counting on the matches but abandoned hope of finding crown 10. Only then I started my first gap. gap itself worked “normal”.
