    I no longer have the crab monster on my map. I have had this issue for a very long time (maybe 8-9 months) but never thought much of it. I just actually just thought the crab monster was supposed to disappear once you reach a certain level. My wife recently started playing and now is starting to advance but her crab monster is stil there. Not sure if it's known or how many others have the same issue but I thought I would report it.

    I've been playing for a year. If I ever did see the giant crab it was a very long time ago.

    Is this even a bug? I'm just assuming since the crab monster stays on some accounts and disappears on others. Maybe the crab monster staying is the bug?

    As far as bugs go in this game, this isn't one to worry about.

    I don't miss the crab monster but I do know some monsters are replaced with theme monsters like during a holiday and if the crab monster is one of these selected swap outs then I'm not going to see it which means I can't get the bonus award for defeating it x amount of times. I seem to remember that there was a Santa fish last Christmas that many, including myself, could not see. Perhaps the Santa fish and crab monster are one in the same?

    Yeah, I think it's tied to why so many people didn't have ice ships etc during the winter months.

    I have had no crab on the map either for as long as I can remember. Now that we need it to help with materials this becomes a bug worth looking at @Lynsey [Midoki], please

    Agreed. As challenging as it is to gain material. This deserves a quicker fix.

    Note to self: don't get Heston until Crab returns..

    No Crab here either, I think we accidentally ate it (I told them we had a 'catch & release' policy).. :(

    You can get iron from the 3*, ghost ship at oyster bay. It sometimes response north of your island. But no matter where it spawns it's less than 2 hours trip. Making it easy to farm iron, even without the Crab. Though I admit the crab would literally make it twice as easy.

    We may have found a solution to the early players who are missing their crab. Hopefully then everybody can attack its weak point for massive damage.

    My map is crab free and has been as long as I can remember.

    My PH8 island that has many fortresses left gets a new crab each day, but my PH9 island with just a fortress or two left does not get any. (not sure what is triggering it)

    I think the issue was caused a long time ago for longtime players. And it just persists. Anyone who started playing after a certain point has the crab.

    I never thought I'd ever say this, but I need someone to give me crabs. ;-)
