[Android] 20.0 Lag, Crashing and Performance Investigation



  • J_MadroxJ_Madrox Posts: 6
    In game ID: J_Madrox

    Device: Wiko Wim light
    Android version: 8.0
    Cellular or wifi: both

    Game version: 20.0
    Game mode: manely Arena, a bit in event Quest (did not try alliance quests or wars with such lags)

    Description: When the game starts to lag: each time a champ is selected for arena the game screen freezes for a few seconds. I say the game screen because the phone itself is still responsive to everything else.
    When starting a fight, I got like 3 2sec freezes in a 8sec timeframe when "ready" is on screen.
    The lag desapears when I restart my phone.
    One time I did not restart my phone. I quited the app and opened another one (namely Clash Royale). Oh god this was awful. Bug bug bug lag lag lag, the phone at one point did not respond anymore and had to be restarted. On again, I had sort of a "scar" on the phone: When the phone was at high luminosity, a philigrane of the last Clash Royale screen I was on was present on my screen whatever I was doing. Moreover the screen was pulsating with light. This issue faded in a few minutes, mainly with diminuing luminosity and occupying my RAM with MCOC.
    Last thing last: It happens to me episodically that during a long fight, whichever game mode I'm playing, I get a 3sec freeze at any given moment in the fight. "Fortunately" it acts like a small "Pause" in the game.

    Here you go with your info

    Best regards.

    Game Version Installed: 20.0.1
    Game Mode: Story Quest, Event Quest, AQ, AW, Arena
    Description: Lag is certainly not consistent, but the following occurrences are the most common for me:
    1) When the defender dashes in towards me, the game would stop for a split second, not allowing me to block.
    2) At the beginning of the fight, right after the attacker and the defender run toward each others, the game would stop for a split second, not allowing me to block or parry.

    It's been a couple days since I posted on here, but I'd like to say that at least for me the severe lag no longer seems to be a problem, game is running pretty smoothly for me so hopefully other players have seen this improvement.

    Description of the Issue: when I go for opening crystals, it like takes years to go from one corner to start point then from there to vault, I might have got blade dupe but then the lag ended up with Hawkeye, when I play story it takes so time for landing a hit, then suddenly no Perry opponents evade, lot of units got wasted to kill ultron, and duck, aw too I used 15/15 0 items left, for this performance I have to leave ally

    Device Operating System: 9.0

    Cellular or WiFi: Both, oddly enough it's as best on WiFi as it is in mobile data. Verizon is carrier.

    Game Version Installed: 20.0

    Game Mode: event quests, alliance quests, alliance war.

    Description of the Issue: there is a significant to severe lag that occurs when you are fighting. So if you swipe backwards or forwards there is a delay. There is no delay for the opponent so the AI is far more difficult to fight. Swiping back doesn't always move the champ backwards. After activating a special there is about a 1 to 2-second delay where the champ doesn't respond. when activating dexterity there is a 1 to 2-second delay where the champ does not respond. The AI can block special one and two but it seems to be arbitrary and I cannot pinpoint exactly what makes it occur. When attempting to block or parry the opponent the functionality does not always work. I've tested it thoroughly and it seems to be arbitrary as I cannot pinpoint exactly when it occurs or what specific Champs it occurs with.

    Description of the Issue: at the start of the fight it's like if the game is on slow motion and few seconds later it becomes almost normal but a bit slower but sometimes in the middle of the fight it feels like the screen froze for a couple of seconds
    also when opening crystals the app freezes for like 10 seconds before being able to purchase the crystal and when tapping the crystal the lag goes through the roof with more slow motion than ever and the crystal starts stopping on champions for more than 2 to 3 seconds then rolling over to the next champion and again and again till it stops on the fourth

    My comment was somehow deleted. Very rude. Same issues as everyone above with the freezes and glitches in fights and crystal openings on my LG Stylo 3. Everything is up to date. Been about 2 weeks since my game has been unplayable or just too annoying to deal with to even try playing. Already deleted and reinstalled game with no luck. I have a feeling my alliance is not going to put up with me not playing for too much longer.

    Description of the Issue: since 6 months its always the same with you guys. you launch another update with new content and the game starts lagging as hell for some time. since the 20.0 this went to another level. the game is not just lagging but there are fps-drops, like the game is running with 2fps or something. this not only happens during fights but in the menus too! i recognized, that those problems aren't there if you play at night. it seems to me as if your servers are the problem, because at daytime those problems are worse. i always restart my mobile and clear the cache before starting mcoc, so there are no other apps running in background.

    please and fix those problems asap. im playing mcoc since the Beta and i am tired of using a bunch of items because you are not able to provide a decent performance of the game.

    Device: Xperia X F5121

    Operating system: Android 8.0.0, 34.4.A.2.107 build, August 1st security patch

    Cellular or wifi: no difference

    Game version installed: 20.0.1

    Game mode: all

    Description of issue: worse by the day. Game freezes, it's past lagging. Only have time now for AW for example. Overall game starts fine and in like 10 minutes feels like running a 2018 game on a pentium 1 or later 😅

    It's no use describing all since I bearly get time to do AW fights. Any more is impossible. So AW wait and AQ. EQ, arena, danger rooms are a distant dream.

    All I am permitted to do is help team AW and AQ and NOTHING MORE! SINCE AW season just started you have till end to fix or I'm forst to quit my boys after almost 2 years!

    Compensations is a dream since I basicly can't play! Just fix!

    Game got worse after patch for the new AQ went life, problems started with 20.0 update but game feels like worsens by the day since that update. Might not manage the little that I can now in near future at this rate.

    Same issues as most above. Crystal screen freezing, quest maps lagging badly, and many more issues. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game today and it seems to be worse now. Spending more time waiting for screens and fights to load than actual play time. Beyond frustrating.

    Game Mode: Intermittent bad lag and freezing in every game mode and even in game screens like champion, crystals and items screens. Sometimes loading a fight takes slightly over 2 minutes before I get the fight to start and then for the game to stop standing still. Crystal screen can take over a minute to load so that I can scroll it. In maps the game will lock up so that I can't scroll the screen for 30 seconds at a time.

    Description of the Issue: Major Lag. When entering in the arenas or quests, I barely can scroll down to select champion. I need to wait perhaps 1 minute or two until thelag goes away. During battles, sometimes the lag gets me twice: at the start of the battle (lasting 30 seconds) and something like 10-15 seconds later on the battle. This costs almost 1 minute, which can be a lost in AQ or AW. The Lag only goes away after restarting the game and wait 5 minutes before entering again

    After pressing any tab (for example the alliance tab) the game freezes in loading screen. Sometimes the game becomes completely unresponsive and I have to shut down the app, while other times it takes more than 5 minutes for the game to respond
