Messages in a bottle and Totem Pole

By

With version 1.1.8 (second island update for iOS) it is possible to get a message in a bottle. According to Beeline, it will wash ashore about once every week and give tasks, which, when completed within a week will give rewards.  It was claimed earlier this week that few  Smurfs’ village players  were able to get their message in a bottle but most of them they have manipulated time (time cheat), which is not recommended. However many other players have just got  the message in a bottle in their islands,  with  a list of quests.

According to our believed and Beeline representative Bethany Smith a message in a bottle will wash up on the shore of the island roughly every 168 hours (One week). When you tap on the Bottle you will be given several tasks that are chained together. You must complete all of the tasks within the six day time limit.

Once you have completed all the tasks, you will be given a gift. The gift could contain your first piece of the Totem Pole. If you don’t finish the tasks in the time allowed, you will have to try again when the next bottle appears.

The quests  can be long where you will be asked for example to grow 123 Cantaloupes, or 123 tomatoes,  but they are rewarding and you may get up 1000 gold Coins, as well as you can get  a part of the totem pole. Many players are claiming that they  could not place the part of totem pole (dog’s head) , it just disappeared after the gift was opened.

At the moment we are not sure  how this works, but we think that you  will not be able to place  the  totem pole until you will get all the parts.

The Totem Pole has been seen in screenshots and advertised by Beeline has a new feature that allows one to control the rain on the island.

Message in a Bottle quests glitches (V.1.1.8)

Many players are experiencing the latest in a series of glitches with the bottle quests, including me(Poet) and Brainy Smurf. For eg, one of your quests might be to harvest 50 eggplants. However, if you exit the game and come back to the island again, you might find that your quest has been changed to harvest 150 eggplants instead! Also, completing these bottle quests might not necessarily get you parts of the totem pole. Players have reported that some of the rewards are just gold and xp, or normal decorative stuff. We are hoping Beeline can rectify these glitches as soon as possible. – Poet Smurf

    No more message in a bottle Quests I keep checking but still nothing. Nothing on Monday or Tuesday. Not even today how long do I have to wait? I think the last message in a bottle Quest was on Friday.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You should receive quests once per week.

      • Maci__Micglire says:

        I have waited for like a couple of weeks and still no message in a bottle Quest. And I go to the Island very often. Can someone please help?

        • Smurfette says:

          Are you connected to the Internet? I think the MIAB only comes up with Internet connectin (not sure about that). Otherwise this should only happen if you have used the time cheat and changed your clock to advance faster. If you have not done so, please contact Beeline support. You can reach them here: http://www.beeline-i.com/support.php

          • Maci__Micglire says:

            I cannot use time cheats because the time is settled using wireless so I cannot use time cheats and I am always connected to the internet. I cannot contact Beeline Support because after I do I get a massage saying that the message that they have sent was unsuccessful. Can you please help?

          • Smurfette says:

            You could try it via Beeline's support forum, that is regularly read by Beeline employees as well. You can find it here: forums.beeline-i.com

          • Maci__Micglire says:

            Thanks!

          • Maci__Micglire says:

            How do Beeline Forums work?

          • Smurfette says:

            It is a "normal" forum, you will have to sign up (you can find the sign up link here: http://forums.beeline-i.com/register ) and afterwards post in the correct section. I would recomment to use the "Report a problem with Smurfs Village" section here: http://forums.beeline-i.com/forum/main-category/s…

          • Maci__Micglire says:

            I don't understand how to set up a account. I go to register but it doesn't work because I don't really understand how you set up a account.

    I haven't had message in the bottle for like 3 weeks. Plus I would never ever restart my game! I am pretty far and I have the mountain, island, and swoof planet (so cute!). I just wait. And wait. And wait some more. I love smurfs village!

  3. maria pizano says:

    I completed the complete the totem pole once challenge and it says that it's completed but it didn't give me my reward..why is that happening

  4. Bottle of hair missing, and it does not come back again.

  5. Alex says:

    Hi, I have completed 29/30 for message in a bottle, when I reach the last quest, it only give me 16 hours to complete, so how am I suppose to complete my quest?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You will get another message in a bottle quest. There are few intermittent issues that pop up, and the one you encountered is one of them.

  6. jon says:

    Why I was able to find the island and got a smurfberries in lvl 15 by just checking other village?

  7. cutifa says:

    I received a message in the bottle, but when i received it only gives me 6 hour to complete the last piece of totem pole, of course i couldn't finish the request. Will it coming back? i really want to finish my totem pole. Thanks!

    • Stroumpfette says:

      It is possible you will see the quest again. You may want to open a ticket with Beeline and ask them about it. You can reach them on http://beeline-i.com/support.php

  8. Kate says:

    I hate the message in a bottle. it makes me feel anxious about completing it on time!!!!!!

  9. Clumsy smurf says:

    How do I get the message in a bottle I waited almost forever and it never came what should I do smurfett?

  10. dinx says:

    my bottle is disappeared 3 weeks ago, and until now it doesnt appear in my island anymore. does anyone knows how to get it back? thanks

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You will need to open a ticket with Beeline Support. You can reach them on http://beeline-i.com/support.php

      • prinsesa_ariana31089 says:

        I have the same problem too..but what will I do with the ticket?

        • Smurfette says:

          Opening a ticket with Beeline means that you make them aware of your issue. Then the dev team can look into it and hopefully fix it. Sometimes Beeline can also provide useful tips on how to prevent issues from happening again.

  11. ameenah says:

    My message in a bottle disappeared around 17 Feb and I havent seen it since. I check for it everyday several times. Where has it got to and when will it come back? I cant restart the game its taken too long to get to the point im at.

  12. Bean Smurf says:

    I got the first message in a bottle piece of the totem pole… Its been about 4 months and havent had another piece be the reward. Is it glitches out or does it take like 6 months between pieces? I want to clear the “complete the totem pole” challenge and its kinda hard when all i ever get is trampolines, hammocks, and other assorted items.

    • Sassete says:

      It feels like it takes very long time for some players to get the pieces to the totem pole but take it easy and dont use sb to complete it because the totem pole doesnt do anything special

  13. smurf Janet says:

    Hi
    To all my friends

    please give me dy's and no bolt ,s thank you so much :)

  14. teresa says:

    I am having problems with my message in a bottle. I did the first quest just fine and then it showed up about a week later and I clicked on it and sent my smurfs on another quest but when I look for the bottle it washes up on the shore very quickly and back out. I don't even have time to click on it. It has been doing this for 2 days now and it has registered over 50 message in the bottle completions. I know this because it gave me the smurfberries for it. I have tried restarting the game and that doesn't help. Help please.

  15. adni says:

    i tried clicking on the bottle on my ipad but nothing happend . i am not sure if that was a glitch

  16. Smurfer says:

  19. İsterlice says:

  20. Deadcaleb3 says:

  21. benny says:

    I haven't see MIAB for more than a month.
    tracker smurf already in the village, but the still brainy said that tracker is out of the village.
    Marco Smurf always gives the same surprise for several time : a blue print.
    Reporter Smurf can't move from day 1 : coin 230. it stuck from day 1

    Need help

    • Poet says:

      I am not sure why your bottle is not found, but for Tracker Smurf, he is currently not available. Beeline is still fixing him. As for Marco giving the same gift, yes, it is a glitch, which Beeline will be fixing… Lastly, for Reporter Smurf, I am getting similar issues as you…the time frame is a bit mixed up…I suppose this could be another glitch that Beeline will be working on.

  22. @undefined says:

    The third weeks and third yellow gate! Is it a new bug or what? Idont need so much gates on the island.

  23. Hendry says:

    I'm playing at android device. My bootle quest is missing!! please fix it.. i don't see my bootle quest after I finished 1 rain totem.. please fix it.

  24. .... says:

    I haven't got miab for three updates!!!
    What is going on

  25. Cidesmurf says:

    I've beeen asked from by the second task from the bottle to send 4 smurfs to get supplies for SS II but I only have 3 in the island. How can I resolve that? Is it just a matter of buying one more smurf by using mysmurfsberries? Is there a way to get smurfs different from using smurfsberries? Thanks in advance.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      To get more smurfs, you either have to build a house for them or purchase them. Each house may hold up to 4 smurfs. The first one comes when you build the house, the second when you do the first upgrade for (I think) 500 coins, and the third and fourth if you decide to do the second upgrade for four smurfberries.

    • fenny says:

      you must add some hut

  26. Mariani says:

    I have an incomplete totem and an incomplete blueprint and I keep getting new things instead of allowing me to finish what I started…. what can I do?

  27. Sherlock says:

    Is this quest bugged again? I’m on Android. Last week I couldn’t complete it because it kept changing the requirements on me. Like it would say plant 24 honeydew, then once I was ready to harvest, the quest had changed to plant 75 tomatoes. It did this three times and I ran out of time.

    Plus I’ve gotten nothing but crappy rewards for the past six weeks. I’m missing two totem pole pieces, five Clockwork parts, and seven blueprints and the stupid quest wants to give me chairs, sinks, smurfling toys and other junk I could just buy with coins. It’s starting to get really frustrating.

  28. miranda says:

    Since. I've had a bug and had tot restart level. And this was a few weeks ago…
    I have nog recieved any bottles anymore. Could it be fxed please?

  29. benny says:

  30. Joe C. says:

    9/14/12
    I see the totem pole challenge is back for the miab challenges on the island…
    The 1st level piece is now available to earn. The problem is I already have the 1st & 2nd level totem pieces. Do I need to re-earn the whole totem pole pieces or can I just earn the last 3 upper totem pieces that I need????
    Please advise! Thanks.

    Ps. Pumped about this!!

  31. Lone smurf says:

    My miab has disappear from a month or more i want it beacause i want to win prizes

  32. Rtando says:

    There is a time limit within which you are supposed to finish the tasks.else the bottle dissapears.

  33. AbDaFiPe says:

    I got my first piece of totem pole about 3 months ago and have never had a chance to complete a MIAB for another piece. The quests are always for the blueprint. Will I get a chance to get the rest?
    Thanks x

    • Dreamy_Smurf says:

      I would be happy to get a blueprint although my totem isn't finished. I always get flags.

      • D.YahiAli says:
