I guess they did it to balance things a bit more on lower levels and to give some purpose to other trones at later levels. I agree it's a bit unfair but the amount of players with maxed stuff is really small compared to the whole player base and those player would probably still have enough materials anyway and currently, it's actually equal for all players. It was a zepto decision and I doubt they would roll it back.
I doubt that they will change it either... but it was STILL the wrong move to make.
Its been this way for a month, and I still cant get over the fact that I was FS4 and within 10-15 items to get FS5. . . but NOW I am over 90 items away from FS15. Its as much a matter of principle than anything else, but the end result is the same; this pisses me off EVERY TIME I PLAY to know that all those who had FS5 before dont have to deal with this. So I dont play nearly as much as before. Soon I wont play at all (as soon as I reach the trap-upgrade goal I set for myself).
I didnt think I would ever stop playing, but THIS, combined with the scoring changes they also made... have made me move on to other games to get the satisfaction I can no longer get here. (and if the reduced posting on the forums is any indication, I am not the only one).
As was said above, contact ZeptoLab support. They see this all the time... I've had the subscription mess up twice now, and the last one was the exact same message you had (server error). In my case, it left me in some wierd sort of limbo where I was gaining keys correctly, and had all the visual signs of subscription (crown above the mine, etc)... but I was not getting tears/day, and on the subscription page the count-down timer had no time and just said: "--:--:--"
You can try and "refund purchases" (thye asked me to) and you might have to get a refund and try again... (they asked me to later)... and when it didnt work even after that they still found a way to fix it. Emailing them is your only real way path to fixing it.
Yeah, almost no score halfway through the season? So I checked the team roster.... 21 players and all but a handful are "Its been a while...".
Shadow....IMO...if you are an active player, find a guild with AT LEAST 10+ active players. With the new scoring rules, if you guys arent consistently hitting at least a million/match, there are many better guilds around for you.
