    Game version 19.1
    Randomly, within fights, the health and power bars become white blocks, with the damage numbers, buffs, and debuffs having boxes around them or blurred. After selecting champs for fights and accept all info becomes blurred and white blocks also. Sometimes when fighting in arenas will block or evade but champ stays still and gets smashed.
    Phone also gets really hot within 5-10 mins of playing, so much so have now bought a new handset to try and combat game issues.
    Also whilst playing, game just comes up with network error message at bottom and just hangs and randomly kicks me out, these issues have been since last few updates but alot worse since last one.

    The game crashes from time to time resulting in arena losses and so on. Also my cell phone is using way more battery as it used to when playing and the overheating problems are better than before but still exist.

    Game Mode: happens even in the main menu.
    Description of the Issue: As soon as i launch the game, my device starts to heat and this heat becomes unbearable after like 10 minutes of use. When the phone is hot, i experience high lag peaks as if the game freezes. When i close the game, the temperature goes down to normal again

    Please do something as i don't want my device to be damaged.

    Game Mode: All aspects of the game. Some seem worse than others at different times.

    Description of the Issue: Controls seem to be unresponsive 60% of the time but it changes from fight to fight. The specials won't trigger, block parry and dash back are all intermittent Block suddenly disengages even while still holding. Trying to pick paths in AQ and AW it doesnt register choice then suddenly starts moving without prompting. Maps won't zoom in or out. Sometimes during arena fights all the text becomes white blocks. Reoeatedly trying to delete the same ingame reward mail. Notifications will not go away even after reading or claiming the rewards. Clicking the collective help button will not work and i have to click each one individually. The auto fight keeps disengaging mid fight or turning off without prompting between fights. The auto fight doesn't fight just stands there and allows itself to be hit. All the problems have been ongoing and getting worse over the last few weeks.

    Game Mode: In which game mode did the error occur? Arena, Alliance Quest or Alliance War.
    Description of the Issue: The game pauses for a coupme of seconds. Once it regains and starts moving again, the attacks i want to use cones in late and by that time my opponent disregards it and fights through. This also happens during poping crysrals. It starts and stops during the showing phase. Once you press to stop the crystal, it continues to stop and start.

    Name: Str1066
    Phone: galaxy s8+
    Android version 8.0.0
    Version 19.1
    Modes: aw, quests
    Issues: horrible lag mainly questing less in aw- only done a couple of aw fights
    Aw- Visual errors displaying player icons in aw but node behnind them up and no blue path to show progress (fine when restarted)
    Aw - displayed enemy players as ko with no champs selected
    Aw -game froze and crashed when i went into view my base and the attackers teams. (Didnt display any attackers teams)
    Phone battery life has been demolished in last two updates. I need to charge my phone 3 times a day to play now, before one charge got me through nearly the whole day.
    Phone heating feels a little hotter at the back than normal near the middle and tip of phone.
    Connection warning - even when wifi is working (i have software to monitor speed and performance) i get the connection warning. It sometimes doesnt recognise a win at the end of a fight or it starts the fight but doesnt let me join - when i go out and in again my champ is either ko or on 50%health. (Mainly in arena and aq)
    Connection warning also occurs when leveling up using iso, ranking up or using sig stones but these always seem to go through without any issues.
    All - also find that some champs struggle to chain specials onto the end of combos without the opponent blocking the special. This happens more since last update
    Combos stop mid combo - several times a day my champ stops hitting at 3 in my 5 hit combo and opponent rinses me as they attack in - happened in old uodate too.
    Social tab - is screwed up and has funning writing with letters and underscores
    Ocassionally fighers dont respond to instructions. This is normally a swipe - even after washed screen and hands. happened infrequently so hard to say which champs in which fights.
    Heavy attacks - i still get the issue of throwing the odd heavy in combat during a combo. (Yes adjusted senisitivity but no better so changed it back).

    Game Version Installed- 19.1 version
    Game mode: In which game mode did the error occur? Arena, Alliance Quest/War, Monthly Quest, Story Mode
    Description of the issue- Laggy/ choppy when fighting, usually more so during important fights (boss/miniboss fights). Word and numbers appear as white/grey blocks or boxes unable to read. Overheating issues, screen becomes hot and sometimes the game app force closes and goes to my home screen. Power meter fills from both sides.. Becomes confusing at times. That and the lag is the biggest issue when coming to fighting, had to use plenty of resources due to it. Hope you guys can fix it !:)

    overheating is HORRENDOUS and it causes the game to lag really hard i tried to go for my 100% completion of the heroic event quest (because i wanted to get the 5* shards to open a 5* crystal this week) after i encountered the lag i just closed the game and i haven't opened it since

    Story quest (trying to finish act 5 100%, really thought with a lag), AW and AQ.
    Last fight was on act 5.4.3 vs OG captain America. Got a lag and died. Just about every time I play there is a lag now. I am done with most content and I'm really close to throwing in the towel. I have spent a ton of money on this stupid game and I won't spend another dime until this issue is resolved. I have also experienced crashing a few times, but not too frequently. But the crash usually occurs in aq or aw. Also , sometimes when I dash back or try to parry, i jump forward with a medium attack. Usually I get kicked in the face, then combo'd.

    No overheating issue but definitely lag and frame rate issues that I never on any previous versions. Sp3 animation was also lagging. Lag on A.I's dashing back close to the wall causes a lag and missed party.
    No crashes or lost connection

    Game Mode: Multiple. Most frequently in arena, but that's where I spend the most time. Has happened in story mode, quest mode, and AQ as well, and also just navigating (for example, opening crystals). I almost never do AW.
    Description of the Issue: Game crashes, and crashes have gotten more frequent since the update. Has cost me multiple fights. While grinding arena, was crashing every 15-20 minutes.

    Another frequent problem:during an arena match, all of the progress bars (hit points/sp for both opponents), and all of the color for the icons disappears. The game usually (but not always) crashes shortly after, though sometimes I'll have a few matches like that. It's been going on for weeks as well.

    I've experienced this since the Antman/Wasp update. This doesn't happen till about an hour or so of gameplay. Quest tiles, iso and champ selection become black blocks. When selecting champ info, the champ is blacked out. Then the app stops running. After experiencing this more than once, I have to exit the app and restart.
    Now with this recent update, I'd hoped that whatever was causing this problem would be rectified but it occurred again. This I performed a factory reset of my phone. Even that didn't do anything to fix the issue. I have an Motorola E4, Android 7.1.1 nougatz7tid58affs9.png
