I play on an IPad and sadly don't have wifi access during the day at work. However, as long as the game remains open, I was able to collect my gold.

During the last couple of days, it seems that when I do get back online, the game reverts to the last time I was connected - causing me to lose all of the gold collected since. Did something change?

I noticed this last Sunday. I was collecting some boxes by killing mobs offline. I found my box number always be reset.

Is this related to the Daylight Savings Time issue?

I think it's appropriate that your gold was lost. That style of camping is not legit. What if you just sat offline and reaped hundreds of thousands/millions off yourself with no threat to lose any in raids? Meh.

I agree. Grubby play style.
Although I still find that even when I collect from my money buildings, if I shut the game down and re-open, all of my buildings need to be collected (again). This can be fixed by attacking someone in PvE or PvP after you have collected, but it's still an inconvenience. I guess I should specify that I always play online, seeing that some people don't...

Try vaulting your gold as soon as you re-connect to your Wi-Fi.
If you got raided or attacked (lost) while off-line, your gold count will go down. Check your News report, news icon may not show up.

I view collecting off-line the same as playing Boss events on overtime.

Are you a Gem player yourself?

I consider myself a Free player. Purchased 10 bucks worth of gems at the beginning before I knew how to play KA.

I only ask because playing Boss events or any Box events in OT is valid; as the player themselves are paying for that option. Most of the time, those players are also competing for spots that isn't even guaranteed. A Gem option open is not a 100% event key (vial, arrow, feather, etc.) and so their risk is a reward that funds all players that play this game to stay updated and have future events.

jonny - it is not camping. I can still be raided while offline. I am simply collecting gold while I don't have wifi.

Dad - it is not related to raiding. I have been raided before and that is not the issue. This is erasing the gold that I collected and resetting the timing clocks to what they were the last time I was online.

Anyone else have a suggestion as to what may have changed?
