I have noticed three specific things so far....
Everytime I log off for the night and return the next day, I have lost a carrot.
My carrot locator is always blank or says expired in red letters.
And, it seems that those of us who are new-ish here are getting hit the most.
Ok, four things... one can't grab and scroll fast enough on a laptop to get more than one carrot when they do show up in bunches.
I did a carrot game search which helped me understand the game better.... but I still don't know how to steal carrots and haven't been given the opportunity to steal. Not that I want to, but if I know how to steal carrots, maybe I can figure out how to protect my carrots.
Now I understand why some people opt out of the game.
