"Play A Friend!" Fixed to Award Double Gold to Both Players

Recommended Posts


The hotfix was passed last night.

There was an issue with the "Play A Friend!" quest awarding 160 gold (double the normal amount) only the the holder of the quest, whereas the opponent friend only got the usual 80 gold. The issue was hotfixed last night, although the quest reward will still be displayed as 80 in the UI.

The Midsummer Fire Festival is hot, hot, HOT! However, bugs are not, not, not. :(

Recently, we discovered an issue with the Midsummer Fire Festival’s double gold feature not properly granting the friend participating in the “Play a Friend!” Quest double gold. We have rolled out a hotfix for this issue and the Quest is now working properly in all regions. Both the player that has the “Play a Friend!” Quest and the friend they are playing against will receive the Midsummer Fire Festival double gold bonus.

Friends that only received 80 gold from the “Play a Friend!” Quest rather than the intended 160 gold for the Midsummer Fire Festival event will receive their missing 80 gold. A pop-up will appear in-game that will notify the affected players that 80 gold has been added from outside the game.

Please note that the UI will still display that 80 gold has been awarded to the challenged friend, but the awarded gold will correctly be 160 gold. We apologize that we are unable to adjust the UI at this time.

Thank you for your understanding, and enjoy the Midsummer Fire Festivities! (source)

The Midsummer Fire Festival started on July 5 and will last for two weeks. During it, you can earn double gold when completing quests.

Woah, it's 5 weeks? That's great. I think I'm going to save my gold for the expansion, because I'm excited for it and might even preorder.

Sorry my bad, it's two. I guess I wrote five because I had written July 5 before xD
