Lag causes and solution

To my understanding, lag is largely caused by large amounts of data being transferred between your device and kabams servers.

To help mitigate your lag, don't ask for help in arena. Each help request is additional data your choosing to send and receive from the servers. That's why it takes a second to process on each tap of the + tab.

The main slow down with arena help request is when another alliance member helps your request. That data they are sending is then sent to update the cool down time on your champs. If multiple ppl help you, then even more data is sent your way, slowing down your game.

It's really not worth all the lag if you think about it. Each help is only taking 1 minute off each champs cool down. So a max of 10 minutes from a 2 hour cool down is barely noticeable.

    I also noticed that whenever it’s the first day of the aq the game starts to lag ...
    Helping in arena I don’t do .. but I still have lags

    lag has been prominent in the past month,please do us a solid and fix this, it is happening for everyone on all devices.
  • I've stopped requesting help a while ago, still had lag about the same as before. I went back to requesting help again since I need to grind arena and it made no difference for me.

    I don't understand why they really need to have this stuff updating while you are in a fight. I assume that's why we get lag. I don't even think there needs to be much communication with the server at all during a fight, except just to send small status that a fight is actually going (game hasn't died, phone didn't lose connection, or player stopped the game) and how much time is left for AQ and AW where fight is timed. And even if there's trouble connecting, it should not slow the fight down.

    Funny how their servers are this weak - that cannot handle -
    - asking for help in arena
    - too many people logging in the same time

    Cmon guys ! What else could be wrong

    The long stuttering arena lag problem started last June/July.

    The mini-lag and skipped frames that regularly kill us aren't caused by arena requests have been happening a ton since 12.0.

    Ive been told Nz and Australia have their own server, I discovered this when I said I was from New Zealand in “global chat” and was replied to by dozens of New Zealanders, apparently so do different regions in the world, so that theory could still be valid. gameplay definitely seems better when aq isn’t being run

    Agree,last week had a playable game,this week back to normal,pile of dog poo...lagging third rate game that I wouldn’t spend a penny on....fix the the game to a consistent reliable piece of entertainment then people might spend few bucks........I’m starting to wonder if this ain’t purposely induced by em....game never ever started to lag and had strangely acting AI like it does now...let’s face it graphics And gameplay hasn’t really got any better than years ago in the days of the mighty willpower and doc strange...let’s roll this crappy game back to the good old days..lag free champs parrys that Work ,Willpower ,synergies and all the champs that they decided to screw up with their nerfs...all for the good of the game..think it’s quite obvious this game has gone backwards....

    I've noticed that the AI cooperates a bit better if you just allow them to drain your health by blocking instead of trying to evade or intercept. I strongly believe it is designed to be this way. You will be forced to spend units on the harder content. You can either die slowly, blocking everything, or die quickly, by trying to not take any damage with your skillful abilities. Why did they reduce block proficiency so much?

    I have been using items on map 5 because of lag and champs not responding. Why should we stop to request for help????? Why doesn't kabam upgrade their servers in the first place?????

    The game should not be updating data in the background while we are fighting. That is a terrible design.
