Weekly Buzz 01/26/18

Hello Collectors,

If you’ve been following our social accounts, you’ve hopefully seen us engaging with the community a little more. We’re hosting #GuessingGiveaway over the weekend, where players have the chance to win a Mystery Box for a correct answer. We’ve also introduced #ThrowdownThursday, where we’ll be pinning WallaBee characters against each other in a battle for glory. Who did you vote for this week? Sarah Jurrasica Parka or Thrilling Ending? Whoever you think would win, we believe it would be a very entertaining match! If you have a suggestion of who you think should be featured in a Throwdown, tweet us @WallaBeeGame.

Behind the Curtain

Version 2.2.2 came out yesterday, which allows us to begin issuing Grab Bags and Wallagraphic Items. Although we made many improvements with the app, it created a lag with performance on various devices. We are currently investigating the root of the issue, so it can be plucked like the weed it is. We will keep you updated as things progress.

Grab Bags will begin hitting the game next week! As a reminder, we are planning for a slow release from older to current sets. You can expect the Circus Bag to show up sometime during our office hours, so we can keep an eye on the excitement! ūüėČ

January’s WallaPak sold out very quickly last week, with the limited number of goodies sent out to their new homes. We have February’s WallaPak in hand and ready to launch, mid February. There have been suggestions for a virtual WallaPak, which we are taking into consideration. Thank you for your feedback about this new product.

Should you have any questions, please let us know by emailing Support@WallaBeeGame.com


Recent Item Highlights

Arctic Antics closed it’s small chapter, with the last two remaining items in the set releasing this week. As we dive into next week, the hype for Grab Bags continues. Speaking of our next set, here are some cool highlights.

Juicing

Just because you can juice just about anything, doesn’t mean you should.

The Great One

There’s no better way to end the day than watching the auroras dance over The Great One with a friend.

Until Next Time

They depart for the night, eager for more arctic antics tomorrow.

Room For Growth

We have compiled a list of issues that we are currently working on. If you find something that doesn’t fit into this list, please reach out to us and let us know.

  • Battery drains like crazy
    • Under investigation.¬†This has become even more-so of an issue with update 2.2.2, but we are digging in deep to resolve it.
  • Forum Notifications/Count are missing
    • Coming in a future update.
  • Performing an action that triggers a pop up sometimes ‘freezes,’ which needs a hard close to fix
    • Currently being sorted out.
  • General slowness
    • Under investigation.¬†This has become even more-so of an issue with update 2.2.2, but we are digging in deep to resolve it.
  • Store Item and Icon don’t match
    • Under investigation.¬†At the moment, there is a chance that the previous item image will linger, even though the item has updated to the next one in line (viewable by the honeycomb price and set icon).
  • Store purchases hang up for a long time
    • Under investigation.¬†We’re so sorry for those effected by this issue… which should be everyone. Whoops.
  • Random Crashes (especially on older devices)
    • We have discovered that the ram needed for the app fluctuates way more than it should, sometimes peaking over 1gb, which can cause older devices to crash. We are investigating what is causing this, so that we can enhance app performance.
