[Android] Lag, Crashing and Performance Investigation

Hi Summoners!

Our team is working to identify and address performance issues in The Contest and we need your help as we gather relevant information.

As part of this process, it is important for you to understand that lag and game performance are affected by a host of factors including: device, operating system, connection and even Champions or maps. Complicated issues such as these involve an equally complicated investigation process, due to all of these variables. Your contributions to this thread will help in that investigation. This, however, does not mean that there is one single “fix” coming that will address all concerns for all players. It is an ongoing process of improvements that the team is continually working toward as the game progresses.

If you are experiencing crashing, lag, unresponsive controls or performance problems in the Android version of The Contest, please reply using the template below.

This thread is for Android users only.

In-Game Name: Please include your in-game (not forum) name.
Device and Model: (Example, Galaxy S6)
Device Operating System: (Example 8.0) You can find the operating system version on Android by going to Apps, then Settings and “About Device.”
Cellular or WiFi: Does this issue happen when you are using cellular data, WiFi or both? If on cellular, what is your mobile carrier?
Game Version Installed: To check which version of the game you have installed, go to the Google Play Store and confirm that you have the latest version installed which will show you the number.
Game Mode: In which game mode did the error occur? Story Quests, Event Quests, Arena, Alliance Quest or Alliance War.
Description of the Issue: Please include a full and complete description of the lag and performance issue you are experiencing with as much relevant detail as possible. This includes any specific Champions affected and how long you’ve been experiencing the issue.

Replies to this thread must use the template below and provide relevant, constructive information about the issue. This thread is for information gathering and not one-on-one support. Off topic posts, requests for status updates and general complaints will be removed according to the forum rules.

    Significant audio lag while on earphones. For example, I could be hitting the opponent, but the audio output is significantly delayed. Slight Lagging issues in gameplay when fighting especially on Cellular Data. I have all my performance set at maximum. I have tested on Apple and the game runs far smoother on it than my android device. It isn't exactly a solution for me to just switch phones just for a game.

    I played with Hyperion, and also hella in map 5 from alliance quest, in the finish of the battle, I saw that they have already the life intact.
    In alliance war a team mate fought with a korg in the boss node, dealing 70% damage, and the fought show him that korg had their life in 100% and his character died.
    In event quest I fight with a mordo and Ultron OG In the daily special quest and they already had their life intact.
    All of this make us lose the alliance war and also the alliance quest too.

    Description of the Issue: The game is lagging over all, when fights start theres a huge delay and if the defender is aggresive I get a combo into the head because I can block or evade at the beggining. Also after your "fix"of the issue about fights not completing and having to fight defenders over and over again this is still happening and I lost some boosts and energy and the chance of participating in rewards.

    Besides fight reset after completion in event quest, I also can't claim rewards from mutant advancement - game disconnects after pressing claim button. Had claimed level one and two rewards, but now under rewards in stash it appears that the third and fourth rewards are combined into one.

    Game Mode: Arenas and Event Quest

    Like it seems most people, I am having the problem of proceeding past characters and having fights reset with my HP being halved in Event Quests. Can't advance beyond certain nodes no matter how many times I play against them.

    In Arenas, after a match I suddenly lose connectivity and when I get back into Arenas after restarting the game, it indicates I lost the fight even though I may have won. It is after every fight. So I am losing streaks, point multipliers and can't advance in Arenas.
