    Device and Model: Motorola, Moto G5s Plus Operating System: 7.0 nougat.
    Mobile or WiFi: This problem happens when I'm using both.
    Installed game version: 19.1
    The game closes alone between 10 and 20 minutes often (no internet connection failure appears) simply closes during the fight and loading into any area of ​​the game. this often occurs in; Missions of History, Missions of Events and Arena, it is impossible to play these modes of missions with these interruptions, there are still other factors that occur like: crashes when the opponent arms a special or heavy attack, delay in loading to any area in the game. I believe that there is a solution to this because I am being harmed in the missions and I am not playing arena for this reason, I hope they help me and I thank you for your attention. Terry Fury

    Latest version
    Quests sometimes aw and aq
    In ROL I've noticed specifically but in loads of other fights. Whenever I'm maintaining my combo for a long time ny device will lag causing it to respond really late and me to not be able to dash back to avoid mediums lights and specials or to parry meaning I get hit.
    With doctor voodoo especially, my phone will temporarily go unresponsive to any cI'm mands mainly specials or dashes.
    Occasion ally the game will run at a super fast rate 0 lag for a short amount of time.
    Sometimes my champs will rand only dash forward or back without me doing anything. Delays for blocking.

    Also on my lenovo tab something there was incredible lag for blocking and dashing

    @Kabam Miike @Kabam Lyra @Kabam Valkyrie In game name is Booptie. Android version 7.0 Ribbon Model - Huawei Elate H1711z Using Data and Wi-Fi No over heating at all but I keep getting booted off after 15 mins of game play. After update not only have my tier 2 alpha frags not reset in the glory store for two months now(before and after recent updates this is long time for no tier 2 alpha frags and hence my roster has suffered greatly), but now my alliance loyalty counter will not reset either. Loss of control of some but not all champions during arena and monthly events. The loss of tier 2 alpha frags in my Glory store worries me most because I have several champs, Blade in particular worthy of rank 5(5 star version) and yet I cannot rank him up because of this going on for 2 plus months now. Devastating as this may be I have faith that you guys will keep me updated and somehow manage to compensate me/us for this drastic loss of power to my line up. End game players have the glory store and monthly events we use to power up and that's it. Long time player here so please update me on what is going to happen ladies and gentlemen.

    Description of the Issue: all champs specials are unresponsive. Quake and dorm heavies don't respond. I dash back to avoid special and champs runs straight back in. Difficult to get a combo, feels heavy like I'm trying to drag forward every bit.
    Also, twice had 2x30mb updates for no reason. I have two accounts and it feels worse on this one but both respond this way.

    Both cell and wifi.
    Started in the last update with gwenpool goes to the movies update. Game with freeze while almost at home screen and will load some textures, but never pull up my daily rewards. Ill have to restart. Also major lag while going to champion vault while loading up all champions, then the last and worst part is it lags during the running sequence at the beginning of a fight and then sometimes during the fight. Last thing in which i hope to post a picture of is random heroes standing in the screen during my character select screen right before a fight. All started last update, but got alot worse after this past update.
  • Hi all!

    Thank you for sharing your detailed reports. This information has been passed on as we continue to work to improve performance of The Contest. We understand that it's frustrating to experience lag and while there may not be one quick fix for all devices, we are continuing our efforts to investigate and look for ways to improve.
  • Well the good news is the overheating was reduced. And i know this is gonna sound bit unsurprising because of the unit of my tablet, but im using an ASUS MEMOPAD 7. With an intel cpu and i know kabam and intel are not the best of friends. But the truth is the game actually runs fast on this tablet and the graphics are also amazing its like on an ipad level performance and speed. But that was about 3 months ago. The antman update came out and it was just lagging and crashing and overheating. It got worst on this latest update, the lag is more frequent, and also during arena in the character selection it take awhile to load the faces of my champions on their frames. It just got worst and worst i had to switch to my lower lenovo tablet last night with a lower mediatek cpu. And it was better, but the issues are the same. The lags are also there. Its just that the lags isnt as frequent on my memopad. Trust me kabam its not the tablet thats causing the lag ive been using this memopad for yrs and never lagged before the antman update came out. Please fix this issues
