    What is the consensus, double gold starts today?

    If it were going to start today, wouldn’t it already be live? Hopefully I wake up tomorrow morning to some

    I vote that we don't use this thread unless it's been confirmed that double gold is active.

    Natasha still in heavy rotation plus the ads for those posture/back brace things and new one from something called "Tawkify" which shows a LOT of promise.  SHould be a good weekend!

    I’m gonna see your Natasha and raise you the lady selling a crockpot-Keto cookbook. I have the sense that she is hiding a nice set up. 

    I haven’t seen the posture/back brace ad & if Tawkify is the same one that I think it is, I will agree that there is some good talent residing there.

    I can’t seem to get any videos this weekend under 30 seconds. All I’m getting is the Homescapes and Gardenscapes ads. Any idea how I might fix this?

    Navy....I’m sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems in the game.

    For your concern about the video ads, please know that video availability is completely dependent on advertisers. If they want to advertise to your specific location they may offer videos, but if not, then you will not have any to view. Unfortunately, there is no way to make them want to show videos.

    We do try to use multiple vendors in order to increase the chance a video will be available for all of our players. You will just need to check back frequently to see if any are available.

    Additionally, you can try relaunching your app a few times, there are no guarantees that it will work, but some players have reported being able to view more offers after doing so.

    Regarding your concern about the lag you are experiencing, we'd like to be sure we check all options as to why this is happening, so I'd like to suggest some troubleshooting steps you can do to ensure the app is optimized and in sync with our servers:

    1. Your device must have more than 5 GB free internal storage space and 2 GB available RAM so you may want to disable, delete or remove apps you don't often use.
    2. If you're using Wi-Fi to connect to the internet, please turn off and then turn on your router or modem. After that, make sure no one is downloading files or streaming videos, and you're not on public Wi-Fi. Alternatively, you should go to an area where you have a reliable Mobile Data signal (4G LTE). Feel free to test your network connection's Latency and Speed if they are stable by visiting this link: http://www.speedtest.net/
    3. Turn off your device, wait for 3-5 mins, and then turn it on.
    4. Close all the recent apps and make sure that there are no running background processes.
    5. Kindly launch the game and see if it's working as intended.

    I hope this helps. Should you have other concerns or questions, please feel free to write us a new in-game ticket.

    @TheFullMonte I got a good laugh out of that one. Good to have you back.

    Yes!  Good Chef Keto lady is fire.  But why the bulky sweater???? 2 good Tawkify ads in low rotation and FWIW, my AT&T phone gets much better ads than my Verizon phone.

    Does anyone have any insight into whether the new update spells the end of double gold?  Normally it would be active by now.

    Is double gold actually starting tonight or did they just cancel the entire double gold weekend? They are really going to ruin this game if they take double gold weekend away, it will basically be a small group of VIP's playing this game. Say goodbye to your ad revenue Glu.

    Y’all do know double gold isn’t guaranteed every other weekend right?
  • lovingcurveslovingcurves Registered Users, Member 232 Posts
    Is it double gold yet ?

    Pujols and Yoenis need more Manscapping Mints, this is really screwing with their regime

    I think they might start slowing that down by the looks of them giving us more free gold.

    Unfortunate thing is that you are probably correct on that. A daily box with a shot at a thousand gold... Better start liking those 5 gold videos gentlemen and ladies, they will be around for a while with no double gold. Oh, and while we are at it might as well go ahead and pack this thread up and put it on a shelf to collect dust, we ain't gonna be using it for a while.

    The one thing we are not factoring in is loss of revenue from the video ads if they decide that double gold weekends are a thing of the past (and this is clearly hypothetical. I’m not jumping to this conclusion after missing one weekend, but for the sake of conversation). eCPM for reward videos typically are $10-$50. Even if Glu’s earnings are on the low end of that average at $10 per 1,000, they will be missing out on hundreds of more dollars from players like myself during the course of the rest of this season. I like to think of myself as a casual player, I pay $10 for the stadium investment and that’s as far as my wallet opens. I grind videos, but normally only during double gold (I would say 98% of all the videos I watch happen during double gold). My time invested in the game is less than most, so I utilize every bit of double gold weekend to make up the lack of grinding I’m able to do on a normal basis. (After some basic math) I would say I’ve made Glu around $100-$150 dollars so far this season. Is that a lot? Absolutely not. Am I going to cry and hoop and holler on the forums if they do take away double gold? Absolutely not. To me, this is a game. A game I have fun with, but a game nonetheless. If they take away double gold, I will still play because it’s a fun, free game. But will I start grinding regular (5 gold) videos? No. Not out of spite, but because I don’t have enough time with a family and responsibilities to grind out that many videos. So if double gold (for some reason) goes away, I will continue to enjoy playing a free game, but Glu will lose out on at least $200-$300 from a player like myself. If I’m alone in my style of play (which I very well may be) then this actually is a smart business decision for Glu. If there are many like me, it’ll start showing up on the earnings report.

    Psst. 





    It was 3 weeks between the last set of double gold videos. 

    3 weeks from then will be next weekend. 

    3 weeks from that is 4th of July weekend

    Actually the last span was 2 weeks  May 8th then May 22nd.

    That being said I agree that there seems to be very little rhyme or reason to the schedule.  Sometimes it lasts for 3 days, sometimes 5.  It happens when it happens.

    I think double gold went missing for a few months last year, and people were dead set on it never returning. We never know what the dev's are doing, and I'm not sure they always know either 🤪

    Small bump here 🤷‍♂️
  • xracmanxracman Registered Users, Member 359 Posts
    I hear their waiting for Rondevo, Tawkify and the third escort service that I forget the name of, to recruit more "talent" for their productions.  It takes a little while for those visas to get approved.

    Double gold typically only happens during a holiday weekend.
