why am I getting maxed out items when im not maxed out?
Not totally sure. But I noticed that if an item can be upgraded, but you don’t upgrade it for a while, then it’s shown as maxed when coming out of the the sponsor reward case.
I recently invested more than 1 million coins to upgrade as much as possible all items, some of them from L1 to L8.
This allows me also to get coins when sponsors offer an item that’s indeed maxed out.
Hope this helps.
