**UPDATES TO ENLISTMENT GIFTING EVENT:**
To prevent exploitation, we will prevent new Accounts from being able to Gift enlistment crystals. We will also be taking action on those who are using 3rd Party Sellers, Bots and other farms to gift themselves mass amounts of Enlistment Crystals. Lastly, we will be adding an expiration timer to Enlistment Crystals. All unopened Enlistment Crystals will expire on Oct 18 @ 17:00 UTC. For more information, please see this post: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/346104/updates-to-enlistment-gifting-event

    Description of the Issue: general poor timing of movement, glitchy, unable to parry, evade or dex consistently.
    Additionally, I have no other apps open except for contest of champions.
    This has been happening constantly for last 4+ months but has got even worse after the 22.1 update, tell a lie, worked well for the 1st 12hrs or so but after that gone down hill.

    Example:1st 2x come up against epic human torch managed to beat him as was able to evade/dex but last 2x have tried and lost all champs (same champs used as before). Keep using/buying expensive resources to revive and then cannot evade or dex again, the game is becoming unplayable, please fix all ongoing issues before adding anymore content to this otherwise awesome game, thank you 😁

    Same problems for both with or without wifi. Basically every aspect of game is running slow. To upgrading champs and opening Crystal's. In the middle of combo champion will got into slow motion then completely freeze on hit 4 or 5. What does adding new content with updates have to do with so many champs being changed for no reason. Why old champs being messed with in the first place. Wouldn't it be better to leave gameplay alone ti stop lag and crashing and just add your content. Game is almost 5 years old and still dealing with the same issues every update

    Everything is up to date with newest game version and software available.
    The game is practically unplayable. Shuts down within a few minutes of loading up. Over and over.

    QUESTION:
    If I root the tablet and remove all the bloatware, will that help? I have no other apps on the device other than MCoC and the factory basic stuff.

    VERY IMPORTANT INFO:
    The game works perfectly in the menu or during finished fight animations or during sp3 animations(super fluid high fps),
    but performs terrible when the player can control the champions (very low fps)
  • Rayz35Rayz35 Posts: 16
    Speed is back to normal now. Kudos on that Kabam :). But parry is a bit off when they dash in for attack. Only that. Parry is on par when they are backed up to the wall though

    Characters appear to be swimming through mud during fights, dropped inputs, etc etc etc.. Copy post of troy_elric123. Similar long going issues. This isn't just a one off lag issue, its an ongoing problem, and other than filling out this stupid form every update,I see no end in sight. It would be lovely to have you all finally get it right.

    Device and Model: OnePlus 5
    Device Operating System: 9
    Cellular or WiFi: 3 mobile, UK, rarely if ever play on WiFi
    Game Version Installed: 21.1 / 21.1.1 (issues on both, haven't noticed any improvement really)
    Game Mode: Story Quests, Event Quests, Arena, Alliance Quest - across the board, but I've not played AW lately
    Description of the Issue: Since 21.1 I had issues with Domino and Massacre on the last evening of the Fury event, wound up spending money to get revives so I could finish it up, having had Massacre and Dominos SP1 get intercepted mid-use by Fury.
    Variety of similar experiences carried on like this, intercepted by AI when it shouldn't be possible in Arena, SP2 from HT in EQ not being evaded at all when Stark Spidey gets the evade pop up and dexterity also appears, and then today I've had a few instances of characters stopping short of a medium attack and just standing still whilst the hit doesn't land and I eat a combo rather than carry out one of my own.

    Just remembered another one, CAIW was proccing 'parry' triggers early but no stun at all on HT in Epic bounty. Afaik he's not stun immune or debuff immune.

    Description of the Issue: the last update (06.04.2019) didn't fix anything, sorry to say this but you need to do better. People are trying to play the game but the lagging and constant connection issues are making it very hard. The bounty missions are a must do in any alliance but in this situation it's harder and more "expensive" then usual to finish the missions .. so please fix the problems before people remain without resources and start getting angry . Thank you for at least trying.

    Device Operating System: Android 7.0
    Cellular or WiFi: WIFI only with approx speed of 80mps
    Game Version Installed: latest version [installed yesterday]
    Description of the Issue: Practically unplayable. The game will open then close randomly within a few minutes. It happens most often in the arena match up and load screen. But it literally just shuts down randomly on any screen with no indication, or repetitive reason behind it. Sometimes I get a longer run without it shutting down [15 minutes max] but other times it shuts down as soon as the main screen appears. This would definitely give me the impression that it is traffic on the network that's causing it. I really am trying to be constructive to help solve the issue, but it's just getting ridiculous that so many people, with so many different types of devices are having problems. I love this game and have played it for year, but eventually enough will be enough. Thanks.

    Device and Model: Galaxy S8
    Device Operating System: idk, most recent one..
    Cellular or WiFi: both
    Game Version Installed: 22.1
    Game Mode: ALL
    Description of the Issue: Okay, so yet again, android just isnt getting optimised.. what a surprise.. lets begin
    1. Why are loading screens to go ANYWHERE in the game taking like a minute, legit like a minute and a half of loading screen, im sitting waiting on fight to load in for SOOO LONG, not only going into fights, but out of fights, loading into aq, into aw, in the fight menu, to the home menu, to my champions section, it takes a decade to load!
    2. Combat lag is a thing, costing me potions in aw and aq when they really shouldnt be, so the ai decides to dash towards me, my muscle memory goes to block for a parry, 3 and a bit years into the game btw im pretty sure i know when to block, but no, the game lags for a split second and i dont land the parry or the ai just hits through my block because i hesitate and dont hold down my block and get hit..
    3. Few of the champions animations or whatever are just not timed right?? i dont know the terminology but im sure once you read this, if you read this youll know what im talking about. In aq, i usually dex the sentinels sp 1 and can dash right back in after their sp1 to get a 5 combo in, but no, they apparently can now intercept me once i dash back in?? found with x23 that i seem to COMPLETELY MISS when i dash back in after she launches a special of any sort, and her specials are very easy to counter! the x23 bug seems to happen with a few others too, cant remember off the top of my head who, but i remember it happening with others..

    I took a few videos for evidence, but apparently cant post them on here? If there is a way for me to sent these videos let me know, cause you really need to see these videos of how badly the game is operating right now!
    Point is, the game on android is a joke right now, its unplayable.. im expecting compensation, given im playing on an S8, this really isnt my phones problem, also looking at this thread, i havent even had the worst of the bugs... CAN YOU ACKNOWLEDGE US AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO FIX THE GAME?! Yes im angry, im sure if you were playing/dealing with this ****, you would be too..

    Issue: Severe lag and loading times. Constant network issues even on wifi. Sound glitching at the end of battles i.e sounds like character is continuously falling down. Parry not working properly, it will say parry but no stun activates. Emma Frost is taking bleed damage in diamond form. Also builds prowess buffs beyond 5 in diamond form. White patches in screen (see attached image)
    Thank you for your time and effort in resolving these issues.

    Description of the Issue: The game is no longer running at a consistent smooth framerate during fights. It seems that background animations cause the game to drastically drop frames (planes, flames, smoke etc..)

    I'd rather have much less details in the background and a game that runs at 90fps constantly.

    Game Version Installed: 22.1

    Game Mode: All events in the game. The whole game in particular.

    Description of the Issue: All champions are having delayed response to the swipes. (FPS is slower than an old iPhone 6 Plus). Dashbacks, evades, double chain combos are having lags in response as well (ex: suicides masteries, Ghost used to be able to phase right before recoil pops up. Not being able to do so now). Please fix this as its deterring many current events going on.

    Same here... but mine sometime gets lag and the app gets crash in btw the arena's which is not so cool and moreover theres a crikey noise after each fight match in all quest and arena which is kinda annoying
