    Thanks are1000!
    Most credit must go to the players actually sharing the info (Stymie, Gustafrog, mymonta and Bugwb),but I'm happy I can contribute with my copy-past skills

I have noticed when we have numerous devices running I have to disable WiFi on most to play, mostly because we only have 20mbps WiFi. I wonder to what extent this contributes to the "you need internet access" error.

    I am also wondering how the severe weather events worldwide are interfering with global Internet.
    I was looking through the Bugs thread, and SpiritWind commented on how some of her issues could be affected by Walkers in our realms, as well as distance from router/other network traffic, and occasionally time of day (ISP traffic and where one is on the line). Resetting your router can be helpful; we have to call our ISP 1-2 times a year to clear something. Resetting the router sometimes can clear a line.

    I also wonder if those iOs users having issues are logged into Game Center. That's another app that is likely sucking on your WiFi, as well as (hogging) using device processing power.

    I mention all this here repeatedly, because it really does affect usage. I know a woman who couldn't figure out why she kept running out of data on her plan (this was mmmm 8+ years ago before a lot of "unlimited data" plans). When I looked at her phone, all the aforementioned things were enabled, by default. Shutting off these things stopped the data overuse. And a few here who have said they can get online using a different device, makes this possibility a definite contributor to this issue.

    I have had some intermittent "you need internet" screens this event, and I know I have poor Wifi. Starting Friday nights, I have issues trying to stream from a DVR in another state. Both houses are at or near the end of their respective lines, and with people gaming & streaming upline from me, I often can't watch anything most of the weekend. Shutting everything else down & disabling all the WiFi sucking apps/devices is the only way I can get back on to my games. How many smart devices does your home have? Anyone with a Nest thermostat, for example, is losing bandwidth to it. If you have smart lights, refrigerators, washers, etc. they also are sucking on your home WiFi.

    The only other issues I am having this event, is it seems my Stables and Cows aren't dropping hides for the Adventures. All accounts have at least 20 cows, plus the specialty event Hide droppers (cows and Fire/Ice wolf). Sometimes clearing all 30-odd gives me only 2 hides. It's occurring on only 1 account, so that one is "unlucky" this event. So don't run out of hides, for the last few adventures!

    I don't know if I will finish in time due to real life and working full-time. It has been a challenge trying to login and collect. I just started chapter 6. I will keep up as much as I can but I don't like unfinished buildings plus this one has nice drops. I really hope I am able to finish.

    My take: Royal Cows seem to be the only ones I can count on to drop Hides more often. All others are super stingy so I haven't been wasting energy usage on them. I have 5 Royals and that has been enough for me to keep constant adventures going.
