The gem tax refers to the old streak system where a player Usually wins the first 9 matches, the 10th is harder and the 11th impossible.

EA consistently denied using streak killing bots to cause this but every time this happens then you either had to pay gems to continue or lose your streak.

Got it. I paid it this morning to a player who had M51 plants.

You are doing very well if it took an M51 plant to stop your win streak.

Battlez:-

 

This might not work for everyone: but me being a bit of a chicken****, I don't look to see the score until the game finishes. I find it helps me to be calmer and make the right choices.

 

Also, even if it looks like you're losing, don't surrender. I've had numerous games where a crucial move in the last 10 seconds won it for me.

 

PS It would be nice, as a Utd supporter, if I could pick the red glove for myself.

Cheeky!

 

And you don't know which Utd I refer to!  (Hint: it ain't vermin Wink)

 

Another thing, a couple of times when I've turned on the game, Travel Log doesn't refresh for new 2 Battlez for playing 2, etc, even though I enter and exit 3 or 4 times. I've found if I click on each tab in order, it refreshes faster.

 

(Even for Utd supporters who support the wrong Utd. I'm thinking white rose now Wink)

So much of the PvZ2 system is slowing down...is it intentional ?  is it the servers ?

I also try to remember to activate the Travel Log first before starting to play and there are times it will take a few attempts.

From BattleZ, check out the Store and then return to BattleZ, that works most times for me.

Worst case I exit to the Main Menu..

Yup, ads still crashing PvZ2 to begin the day.

Have you tried all mobile troubleshooting steps to see if that alleviates the crashes? On my Android device there's also a "device maintenance" feature that helps clear up unused files which boosts performance. These steps can make a huge difference when players are having technical issues with our mobile games.

I've found that the Boosterama events can often lead to lower scores through players becoming distracted by the lure of the boosted plants instead of sticking with their usual playing pattern.

 

I've been maintaining my proven strategy as developed in part one of this week's tournament, but with just one difference.

 

Instead of planting several sun producers at the start, I'm freeing up space for my offense plants by planting a single sun producer then immediately digging it up and then planting another one in the same spot. (Repeating as necessary.)
