Frustrated! Game restarts when multitasking on iOS 11.

So ever since the iOS 11 update, I’ve been experiencing a really annoying bug where the game restarts if I switch between background apps (line, youtube etc).

Prior to this iOS update, I’ve never experienced this problem and the game would run fine when checking line messages etc.

Anyone else have this problem and is there a fix?

Thanks

    This is entirely an Apple problem (same here alas..)
    Worst thing, it's completely random as well. It doesn't always do it. Nothing for Kabam to do there though. I don't see how they would be able to implement a fix for Apple's screwup on a 'feature'.

    Its definitely not an Apple/iOS issue. Other apps do not do this. Only MCoC.
  • I see Pandora do this all the time. I get out of my car for 10 minutes and come back to find the app restarted and the song has changed. It’s an Apple issue.
  • Has anyone tried downgrading the iOS to see if the the issue goes away?

    I suspected that it would be a bug that both developers might have missed somehow.

    Definitely an apple issue. It tends to try to shut down anything in the background that may be using a lot of resources. MCOC of course is a resource heavy game. It would be nice if Apple added a feature that allowed certain apps to process in the background without an issue

    It’s definitely not an Apple issue. Kabam needs to include an “new” feature from iOS 10. It’s called background app refresh!

    Many other app devs have already included it so their apps do not restart after suspend.

    For me it’s definitely a Kabam problem!

    It's definitely funny to see people start with "it's definitely"

    I HATE this, super annoying. Sometimes it does it after leaving just for a second or two smh

    This occurred on my Galaxy Note 5 but not as often and drastically as my ally mates with iPhones. It rarely occurs on my Galaxy Note 8. Some teammates claimed that they'd go from the game to Line and try to go back to the game and it forced closed.

    On what device do you play?

    Bro, I wish I could say the same. Also running 11.2 and the problem doesn't go away. I think @RentonXD has a pretty good point with the background refresh patch idea.

    That’s not what Background App Refresh is for, and besides, Apple controls when apps using BAR are able to refresh. BAR isn’t for keeping apps running in the background, just for downloading data in the background and then shutting down again.

    What’s actually going on here appears to be stricter controls on how long certain apps are allowed to run in the background. The more resource-heavy, the shorter the time, in my experience. Apple needs to ease up on how often it automatically closes backgrounded apps.
