Bubble witch 3 lives from friends

I play on both my iPhone 5s. and my iPad ( iPad 4 with latest iOS).  Up until recently, I was not receiving extra lives from friends, I log in using Facebook,   Last week, ran out of lives while playing on my phone, and all of a sudden had 37 lives from friends waiting for me.   On my iPad,  using same login through Facebook,  I have zero extra lives.   The owl is there,   So I send lives every day, and when I run out I ask as well.  But nothing on my iPad...  I have uninstalled and reinstalled on my iPad, no change, I have latest version of everything installed......,.  Help please

    Hi @forevercinamon :waving:

    The same game progress is saved across devices if you play connected to the same Facebook account. Lives and boosters are saved locally in your device though so you can use them offline too. This means that they won't sync across devices. 

    Now regarding your issue with receiving lives: As there are millions of messages sent in the network at all times, it can happen that you have times when your requested lives won't find their way to some devices. I would recommend keep sending out requests and at all times keeping your game updated. I understand it's rather frustrating but I would hold off making any drastic moves like reinstalling the game until the next game app update is out. 

    Also have your Facebook app up to date too in case there is a connection issue from that end.

    Hi @forevercinamon I have a similar issue but mine is between pc and phone. I suspect because you are playing on more than one device, the lives are going to either the main device you use, or perhaps you are requesting them from your phone and that is where they are going?
    I am going to ask for advice from one of the CM though. I know sometimes with older devices they don't behave as expected, usually as they have less storage space on. It could be that it doesn't have room to hold the lives as they are saved on your phone/ipad not in the game itself. 
    Have you tried deleting any apps you don't use, backing up photos etc elsewhere? Sometimes doing a system restore if you have nothing important on it can help it too.

    Hello Chicken Slayer,

    thank you for responding,   My iPad is new,  lots of space.  I am sending the requests for lives from both devices.   Don’t really play much on pc.  Though this week I started to, and it does not have same lives or special tools.   I thought that the game is saved so that you can play acrosss all devices.... this is obviously not the case.   

    Just a bit misleading because they say «  sign in with Facebook, and your game will be saved so you can play across all devices » ...

    Thank you Jenny,    I understand about the lives and boosters, for the offline play.   And I do always send and ask for lives when playing on each device... nothing seems to come through on either now....  I am almost always online when playing.  But it is what it is...   thanks for helping

    Try using your ipad only for a few days, just to see if that makes any difference? It might be worth a try as they should be coming through sometimes at least.

    Drats :( There goes that theory :( I use ipad and mines ok, but its almost like something is blocking yours. I wondered if it might be something to do with game centre now its not a standalone app but I am not quite sure if it could be. Are they both the same ios versions?
