Many years ago, I saved my saved game a lot of times to the cloud, then just after many times of saving to the cloud, I can't save anymore. I don't know why I wanted to save it so many times, maybe because I wanted to ensure my progress is not lost etc. (Android)

I haven't got a definite answer previously and I felt I'm an idiot for talking about the same thing over and over again. Just forget that. I just need a final reply to confirm about the patch that is all. I felt like I was ignored for asking the same thing over and over. Forget it. If it feels like I'm annoying others and I'd rather not say anything and be less annoying if I can, despite my persona.

Can you CURRENTYLY save to cloud? Which cloud are you using, and what is the memory limit?

There was a patch to address Android saves, but you're not really providing details if you have the issue post-patch or not.

Copying and pasting the same paragraph won't change the response.

Oh it was saved to my Google play games account. I reached a limit idk there was a limit? I don't even know there was a limit? I thought it would just overwrite the saves in the cloud everytime I upload my saves to my Google play games account cloud?

I didn't copy and paste anything
I'm just asking about cloud saves now. Not asking about my other account. Just forget that Desmond350 account.

There has never been a limit to saves to the cloud. If you have an error with the game NOW, please report it, telling us the error you see, NOW. Thanks!

Yes, your saves are overwritten when you save to the cloud. You only have one save from EK in the cloud at a given time. Even if you save a billion times, the size will be the same.

Saving to the cloud is handled by google services. They handle billions of requests per day, worth thousands of terabytes. No matter how hard or fast you push the save button, they will never be bothered. If you had issues with the cloud in the past, no doubt the cause was different (lost account, bad connectivity, phone permissions, phone storage, etc.). But again, forget the past and please report problems you see CURRENTLY, with enough details such as error codes so we can help you.

I haven't tested it yet for now. It is the old version years back. It happened years ago when I still owned the game. I saved to the cloud many many times and it shows an error.

I already made sure I was connected to the internet but I can't save to the cloud anymore. I pressed it but can't. I forgot what error it displayed even if I have a screenshot of it, I might had lost it in my older devices. I forgot at the time whether did I restarted and tried again.

But I won't save too many times again. That must be an old version of exiled kingdoms when I was playing it idk what had changed over the years in change logs, and I suddenly came back to play it.

Oh, maybe I should had added this detail, when I was younger, I saved like many times in one day, maybe 10 or idk whether it's less or more. Idk how many saving slots are available back then... Perhaps I saved way too many times in one day...

I'm not sure after a period of time I tried to save again and whether it succeded uploading saves.

EK should had been patched. The last update for EK looks like it's on 2021. This happened on an older version or idk how the cloud functions years back. Maybe it was 2015 or 2016 forgot... But I won't save too many times for now.

(Wait, when you replied to me? Oh I already have an answer. Thank you. Why I didn't see there was a reply just now...)
