With the newest update 1.51.0, we have made some changes to the way the recover village works. The changes, you will now notice on the new menu "Settings" that there is a button load auto-save, this has now been made visible and no more need for tapping Papa Smurfs head 16x.
With these changes there is now a limit per day on how many times you are able to recover the village, this is a maximum of three times per day. Please make sure that you are careful if you need to recover the village at all we cannot help bypass the cool down for the amount of recoveries.
If you have any concerns or questions about these changes you are welcome to let us know.
