Why are characters' sayings being cut off?

★★★★ Novice

Since the removal of the Terwilliger event my characters' sayings are being truncated when I select them and send them on a job.

 

I guess EA tried to stop them talking over each other, but this is even worse.

 

A big part of why I choose to buy premium items is whether they are voiced or not, premium or freemium I want to hear what they have to say - if lots of them are talking at the same time, so be it.

OK, it was a bit silly when a character was saying 2 things at the same time, but even that was preferable to this.

 

Sorry, EA, but any chance you can change this back to how it was? Or fix it another way so we can actually hear the whole phrase again?

 

Thanks!

(Yeah, I know this isn't an EA help-site per se, but I'm not sure it counts as a support call either and I know they drop by here from time to time)

The cut off only happens if you tap another character while one is still talking, just wait until the talker is done before you tap the next character.

Thanks. It's not practical to wait for them to finish when you have so many characters that all need to be sent to work.

What do you think? Do you prefer it how it is now or how it was before?

Re: Why are characters' sayings being cut off?

My bad. It does occure without tapping a second character.
Getting cut off when another character is tapped is the standard in another game, so Im used to it.
Doesnt really matter to me, personally, two talking at the same time or the second cancelling the first
but the cut off when you dont tap anything or anyone else is annoying! We should have the choice to hear it all.

Yeah, I came here to post the same thing. I assumed it was on tapping someone else too but it just happened to me when I hadn't tapped anything.

 

I think the voices and the sayings are brilliant, I want to hear them!
