I was kind of excited for the return of the chase … but this current one is either bugged or terribly lackluster. The in-game popup indicated a chest would appear every hour, but I (and everyone else I’ve talked to) has gotten to open exactly one and no more have since spawned. The amounts are variable, too, and don’t seem to correlate to proximity to the chest. I got 500, a friend got 5000, and others have gotten amounts in between.
This would be … sort of fine, if the chests were respawning every hour. But my previous experience of the “chase” was multiple chests and a coin cap of 25k (for a lvl 20 account) and you could collect till you reached that cap. Then there were the regular chests, NOT the chase, that spawned every few hours and would give a lot of coins (as long as you opened a chest while on top of it). I understand that with COVID, perhaps this is an attempt at having a “chase” that lets us stay at home/stationary. But it’s certainly not working as advertised, and how on earth are we meant to hit the coin cap if we can only open one? Or, even opening one every hour (if they actually respawned), if the range in amounts is so variable?
