Game very slow to link to Google Play.

For the last week or so trying to link to Google Play and switch accounts has been obnoxiously slow, if not outright impossible. Sometimes I'll click, the account name comes up, then a blue circle just spins and spins. Other times I'll hit the Google Play button and nothing happens at all. The only remedy I've found is exiting the game while the circle spins, reloading, then the account names will come up. Even after all of that, roughly half the time it claims the other account has loaded while remaining on the original screen, which means I get to start the whole process over again. Then, if Loki is smiling on me that day, I may even get the fun of the venerable ''You are being scouted!'' screen.

Yeah, ''bla-bla-bla this game doesn't support multiple accounts on one device.'' Who cares? I would guess that probably 10-20% of the active accounts are alts from longtimers wiling away the time between two week upgrades by this point.

I saw what appeared to be a similar issue on IOS about a month back and was curious if there were any workarounds and/or if any other Android users have been experiencing this?

Yes, this is a bug/known issue but general discussion gets way more activity and I'm sure some mod will shunt this over there eventually anyway.

Thanks for your time, folks.

Edit: Just tried deleting and redownloading the game, if anything, it seems to be worse. This game already had notoriously slow load times, this is making it nearly unplayable.

Hm, I won't say slow, for me it always takes 2 attempts while loading my base. Not slow, but it loads twice, especially after switching multiple IDs back to back.
Sometimes it works ok.

On iOS it is slow to load any account too. After switching to the other account in Game Center, it reloads the first account anyway and I have to switch language in order for it to recognize the second account and then it will slowly load it. But then I need to switch language back in order to understand the text, so another reload is required. So in summary, the game slowly loads three times in order to switch between accounts. Yeah I know: boo hoo who cares :/
