    Description of the Issue: On June 5, during Alliance War, I experienced a crash when I was going in to fight Black Widow Clairevoyant on node 21 (Fisticuffs & All or Nothing node) using my Vision (Classic). Every time the opponent (Black Widow) dashed towards me for a medium attack, the game quit abruptly, and I gave up 2 deaths as a result.

    Well yesterday I was in the M.O.D.O.K labs and I slept I woke up and that lab had ended with my ticket all gone to waste. So I told myself it’s my fault

    Today i was i the lab fighting spider monkey i got a phone call and the game ended I logged in to see that It has automatically exited the lab but the lab has 21 hours more to run.

    Regular crashing fighting random champs. Happens about every 10 fights. Phone is also overheating.

    This needs to get resolved ASAP.

    Since the server crash yesterday- every other fight or so in either monthly quest or in modok store quest hard crashes and reboots my iPhone. Literally.

    Had to quit out a final event quest run because of it- every single havok fight reboot the phone.

    What’s going on guys?

    And now, on top of the laggy and unresponsive inputs, the screen turns black. Especially during specials (both from me as the opponent). Sometimes for a mini stutter (which occurs a couple of times and my iPad turns warmer) resulting in a black out of a few seconds. The game goes on. The only “solution” is to turn my iPad in standby, turn it back on and resume the game. Meanwhile my champion lost at least a third of its health.

    Somehow you managed to make it worse. It happens more often. And I can’t pause the game by putting my iPad on standby anymore. In the end the game shuts down and I loose champ, have to fight the same champ again or loose half of my health in AQ.

    I had hoped, after the scheduled maintenance, the problem would have been solved. The very first fight I try on my iPad the game shuts down again.

    All game modes.
    Game lags then crashes, restarts game and I end up with 50% health and defending character restarts with 100%.
    Cost me over 120 units today doing event stuff with all the needless health cuts to my fighters.

    Cellular or WiFi: Both
    Game Version Installed: 27.1.0
    Game Mode: All modes, but most noticeable in AQ
    Description of the Issue: Game just suddenly crashes while in mid fight with no warning. Latest example: I just had it crash on me 3 separate times within 5 minutes. Once while moving in AQ, rebooted, got halfway through a fight in AQ, and it crashed, rebooted, did fight, moved forward, completed fight, moved forward, crashed just as I was about to beat AQ Rogue. Running map 5. It isn’t a regular occurrence; but once or twice a week I go through these phases where it’s virtually unplayable because of continuous crashes and I give up until the next day. Kinda crappy it’s happening on the last day of AQ though.

    The frame drops and inconsistent game speed are now giving so random attacks but the defense are at the level that losing the attacker is likely to happen. I thought that maintenance are done to improve on servers and balancing the load etc in this game it’s more likely to add new issues to the rest of them, Lag, frame drops, inconsistent speed, various display bugs and of course the disconnects.

    iOS 13.5.1
    Noticed in all modes of gameplay
    I have noticed significant issues with defensive moves. The characters definitely have not been responding well lately. There are times when I will try to block, dex, or parry and my character will not respond. To provide one example: I was fighting in story 5.3.5 I was using 5* Blade against Dormammu. He would come at me from distance and I would hold the screen to block (I had plenty of time) but Blade just stood there and got hit. I would try to dex out of the way but Blade was very unresponsive. Now it doesn’t happening every time I try to block or dex or parry but it has been happening enough to question and fill this out. I have been playing long enough to notice that something is not right. I don’t think it’s my device. I’ve restarted it, I’ve deleted and reinstalled the game, and I don’t notice issues with the movement or touch on other apps. I’ve noticed this issue most over the last couple of updates - black widow/red guardian and hit monkey/tiara. Hopefully I’m not the only one who’s had issues and I hope they can be fixed.

    Today’s game update
    After 5 hit combo I can no longer reliably swipe back, it often just leaves me standing there. also even when I do successfully swipe back from a combo. if defender like iron man or cyclops launch a beam attack, then I can’t block before my run back finishes
    Plus I’m getting regular frame drops, and vision arkus s2 just loses the plot

    Hey Guys,

    Just noticed that the older version appeared now although I’ve downloaded new version yesterday and the newer version was still up 30-45 minutes ago.

    Phone gets hot. Lags. Shuts down. Can’t even get through 2 matches. Sent multiple in multiple reports. This is getting to be a unit suck trying to get through wars and quests from the repeated shutdowns. Been happening since 27.1.0

    Recently my phone has been doing this thing when I’m playing the game whereIt starts to make a crackling noise and then the game starts lagging and slowing down. The connection is fine but I either have to restart the game or it kicks me out. I’m on iPhonee 7

    Description of the Issue: Can’t run the game at all. After Marvel logo shows, the game crashes. I tried to uninstall and install it again. Game was working fine for me less than 8 hours ago. Made no changes to my game.

    Edit 1: The only things i have been tinkering with is the new features involving shortcuts in the new IOS update, however I see Older versions are having issues also, so I don’t think it is relevant.

    Edit 2: tried opening again, and got past the Marvel Loading screen to the second loading screen to crash again. Did not perform any changes. Also checked another app like Spotify, crashed also. Seems to be an Apple issue.
