What is happening?
So I spent about two and a half hours trying to make my German tree gold again. I was almost done, and then right after I strengthened a skill, about 15 skills turned from gold into needing to be strengthened. What did I do wrong?
Same thing happened to me. 18 skills turned from gold to normal in 19 hours, usually it's 3-4. weird.
They probably changed the algorithm because I had the same for all my languages today.
The same thing happened to me except I lost all of my progress and had to restart my tree. Luckily, I chose to do the placement test but couldn't regain my lost XP. I reported the issue to Duolingo but they did nothing. I could only suggest carrying on? Sucks man, here's a lingot for your hard work.
I hate to hear that. Seems like you had a step forward and two steps back. Have you tried the "strengthen skills"? There's one for each lesson group and there's one that does all lessons you have learned. I do this a couple times a day and my tree is still golden. I'm a little more than half way through my tree. Good luck.
That's good advice. I've heard people say that when you do have a golden tree or a lot of skills done it's better to just do strengthen skills and then a few skills are strengthened.
Yep. I had both my German and Spanish trees fully gilded. An hour later, I had nearly 40 skills powered-down (between the two languages). I guess somebody, somewhere, is tinkering with an algorithm.
Me too-German tree as well. Thought I had it all under control and was ready to start back at school working on one or two lessons a night and then-BAM-about 15 needed strengthening and had to go back again. Only 6 or so to strengthen but darn hard work!! Stupid algorithm!! I didn't pass a check point or anything like that, just coasting along and keeping up, then WOP! SCHLECT! POW! Took the shine off the apples!
The same happened to me yesterday... I'm thinking something in the algorithm changed.
Yeah, same thing happened to me. I felt as if I had been smacked down a bit! I thought I was close to finishing the Irish tree but nope! got to brush up on all my skills in all the languages now. At least now I'll know which things to concentrate on, and know that my work is cut out for me. So glad to know it's not just me!
Same here. just finished the tree two days ago and everything was gold. today about 15 things needed strengthened.
If you didn't loose your experience. Then you might have passed a in game checkpoint that triggered you to do more reviewing. I think this happens more often when you make a grammar lesson gold.
If you have lost all you XP, it might be internet problems, or a glich in Duo.
You didn't do anything wrong, it's because when you have a golden tree there is just so many skills to keep up with and to practice so you don't forget them. Though if you don't want to spend a lot of time on them my advice would to get timed practice if you don't already have it and just do that because it only take 1-3 minutes and depending on how many answers you get correct you can get lots of xp.
