Survival Extension + Quest Bonuses

I Want You Candy Heart
Hi everyone!

Unfortunately earlier today we accidentally cleared (mostly) everyones infections. Our mistake can be your gain, however! We’re going to be extending Survival until 11:59pm on March 8th, so you might be able to squeeze in an extra infection this year! You will need to reinfect, sorry everyone!

We’ve also reset quests for the day. Why does this matter? All quest givers will be giving out candy hearts until 11:59pm on March 1st! Quests also have a higher chance of dropping Morty Cards during this time.

Edit:
The time limit for biting has been temporarily reduced to help you recover your infections faster.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one having issues with this, didn't see anything in the forums about it so I checked here. Finished a lot of quests before I gave up because I wasn't getting any Morty cards. Love you guys still, but I was looking forward to one more day of grinding them out. :P

I haven't seen any decrease in their price tag but I miss them. It was exciting to get them as I am one of those players that get 1 or 2 a day if lucky.

for anyone else that comes here: i did some poking around the forums and apparently the increased rate was lightly killing the economy so it had to be slowed

Colorful

Just finished all my quests, and I didn't get a single morty card today :(
I guess you guys meant for it to end last night, not today?

Marine

I've done at least 60 quests total today, and no Morty Cards. Hm.
And this is opposed to me getting roughly 1 to every 5 quests over the past few days, which seems like the fair standard for the increased rate.

Was "11:59 PM on March 1st" supposed to mean last night, or tonight? Did you guys end up disabling Morty Card drops today just because it's been too much? I'm curious! :o

barely getting any morty cards today :(

The Morty Cards weren't releasing like they have been for the past two days - weren't they supposed to go until 11:59pm tonight?

I got 3 Morty cards today, is that normal for an increased chance? @Amber

Thanks so very much for shortening the bite times. *hugs* On the NVLB biting board we've managed to reinfect loads of people in a much shorter time than it would have normally taken. :)

Thankfully I only grabbed one skin this year and finished it up pretty early into the event. Unrelated though, i'd love to see the grocery bag item from the first stage of the vegetable skin become an official wearable. Also, THANK YOU for the Morty bonus!

Thank you for all the extras. It's nice that you guys let us get more than one strand anyway during the holidays. To have this extra stuff too is great. I've been enjoying the candy changes this year too. Plus I'm never going to say no to extra morty cards!

The Morty Cards seem to be a little buggy... Got lots of them, but when I gp to my inventory, sometimes I have zero, and sometimes I have the same amount than before, even though the quests said that I got like, 2 in a row

The bright side to this site dilemma, I find it rather amusing that Maleria has to give us candy hearts. She usually gives us attitude and nothing XD

Just saw the Morty Cards thing. Thank you so much for that!! I haven't been on this site for a super long time, but it's so amazing to see how much you guys try to make stuff up to the players on here, even for things that aren't a crazy big deal. It's a huge breath of fresh air from another site I've played on for like 11 years (the owner doesn't seem to care about his players much at all and it's annoying). So yeah, thanks so much for being an amazing team of people!

as far as i can tell i'm still infected - am i good?
0

Rivalous

Sorry on being depressed, I'm glad I got reinfected quick and there wasn't any other solution with how these strains work. >_< Still hard that progress time can't be recovered either even though I know there's no way due to how the strains are coded they can't increase the speed of their progress.

It would be nice to wake up tomarrow and see myself at stage 6 again but I know I have to wait another 4 days to be near finishing Buzz Kill again and I'm having a harder time getting over the "sting" of that. I wish I knew everyone's secret in accepting it so quickly as I normally have my own progression before I can calm down.

aw im glad you guys are working hard and are willing to tell us when things go wrong. you guys are great.

I got Buzzkill back but I think I might be done with strains after this, I know there wasn't any other solution but I wish I had a memory wipe device so I could forget that I was saposed to finish tomarrow. Unintended pun but it's going to sting seeing me not at stage 7 or 8 and instead at 2 or 3.

Too late now for me to have seen the edit... I only saw the news post when it was first up then put all my attention to the quests. So the morty card drop rate will stay like this until March 1st then, correct?

Bug

@Lady_K We edited it into the news post when we realized people were worrying about it :)

@Bug
I would have liked a little bit of an extra warning with the increased morty card rate. I was literally freaking out the entire time I kept getting the cards. I appreciate the bonus tho, its a great 16 day early bday present :D.

Ohhhhh my gosh I’m sorry to everyone, but there is something so funny about it happening too. And after Amber said earlier it wouldn’t be extended because March 3 was already longer than they wanted survival to be. I admit I laughed out loud a bit.

Marlboro

I was not here today during the problem, but I got the event that my Red infection is over and ready, it's in my wardrobe.
I took the skin off and could take another one one hour ago more or less, so I did and I have Grosseries, it was before this announcement.

So what to do? to re-infect myself?

From what I'm reading, some people did not get hit with this glitch. Seems I still have my virus, so all is good. Thanks for the extensions. Goes to do quests.
0

Princezz

I don't know if you would want to do this, but would it be possible to shorten the times between stages? I made a suggestion thread the other week after that other problem and people agree that at least the all the viruses except the current year should progress a bit faster, and also it will be a bit less tedious for those of us who are trying to get back the virus we lost progress on. But I guess that's up to you. I just wanted to suggest.
2

Bug

@Luck Yes. A fix for this issue went out a few minutes after we noticed what had gone wrong, so it shouldn't happen again.

To clarify, infections were not being cleared by saving avatars. They were being cleared by the cron that was supposed to be advancing the infections. It may have looked like saving it was clearing them because that causes the cache to clear/update, but it was not actually related.

Luck

Quote by Luck:
I still have my stage 1 of fevermore. I was wearing a full butterfly bruise for biting at the time. I noticed that people were getting their strains cleared by saving in the wardrobe so I'm a little paranoid to mess with it @ _ @ Is it safe to save avatars now?
@Bug if we didn't get our strain cleared by this issue is it still safe to save now? I'm afraid of it being cleared but I want to help bite x_X

Honestly not sure I can trust the cache. Went and re-infected with the instant strain and still saw a grocery bag on a hard refresh, tried it twice more just to see, and every time saw a grocery bag. :/ We're sure there's no other way to jumpstart the cache than restarting the wardrobe, clicking wear, then hard refreshing the av image?

@Princezz I really wish we could, and I tried to think of some way to do it, but it's not possible. If we restored yours, we'd also have to manually restore the infections for hundreds of other users who were affected, and it's just not feasible. We know it sucks a lot and we're sorry :'(
