**KNOWN ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
We are aware of an issue impacting some Summoners, resulting in the loss of their stash of SQ entry keys.
The team will be redistributing lost keys.
Timeline is uncertain.

Mid-combo halts / stand-stills

Several players in my alliance, including myself, are experiencing the introduction of a new "bug", where our champs are suddenly coming to a halt / stand-still mid-combo and are getting hit or missing an opportunity to perform a favourable action. And it's happening across game modes, but most notably AQ.

It's really (not) funny how these fight "bugs" mostly (always?) work against the players. So hoping it will get resolved, but quite sure it won't.

    Exact same thing happened to many few days back while fighting gwenmaster, in second mutant phase I missed the dex and the intercept was not successful, ended up using revives and potions. And here I see the major problem is 7*s.

    I have two accounts - on my main, I use an Iphone 12, on the side account an iphone 8 plus. I haven't had that problem on the main account but have had that issue on the side account ever since the input issues started. I feel like it happens more often for XL champs for some reason.

    I thought it was me.. maybe I wasn't fast enough with my button presses.. I guess I should expect as much. Since blocking still doesn't work 100% most of the time.. I have to end combo earlier and block super early for it to register.

    This definitely isn’t new and has been happening for over a year. It’s the same dropped inputs problem that’s been going on with parry and dex. I run an iPhone 14 pro, so it definitely isn’t the phone I use.
  • It's been happening for long now and isn't fixed yet. In fact I feel like it's getting worse. When controls ****, battleground mode with victory shield stuff is a joke.

    There have been rare instances of combo interruption I’ve experienced (as well as others in a fairly experienced player chat). While I don’t have an official explanation, I’m guessing there is a slight stutter in the game where my input doesn’t register and which the AI perceives as an opening to take the opportunity to hit me.

    Traditionally, absent some special ability (unstoppable, falter, etc.), the AI isn’t able to immediately counter while you are mid-combo hitting them or their block. What I’ve seen is precisely this, although I haven’t had my champ completely stop and stand still. That sounds like a mix of dropped inputs and some kind of game freeze.

    Any video of it? I hate when people ask that, because we shouldn’t have to record every fight to prove a bugged game has bugs. However, that might be helpful to demonstrate and theorize what’s going on.

    That's a reasonable line of thought. Trouble is, one has to record every single fight for that, since it doesn't happen every fight. Also, to prove that your input was there, you have to use one of those tools used by YouTubers where they highlight their inputs.

    For a brilliantly detailed and developed game, these "bugs" are substantial blotches that need to be resolved. Game Rubber Banding is one thing, but the game not doing what it's supposed to do for months (years?) is another.

    It already past more than a year with input issues, their response is file a ticket for every bug we encounter.

  • Aaaaaand stuff like this is why so many people (including myself) are playing a lot less.

    They have no interest in fixing input bugs. It keeps people spending money for revives and buffs that way. It’s actually kinda brilliant in a very cynical way.

    Have the same problems, and it's super annoying when you're doing a boss fight..

    In the last one and a half months this has increased. Quite certain now (if I wasn't before) that it isn't a "bug".
