Due to an issue with Alliance War Defense Tactic, we will be ending this Alliance War Season effective immediately. This current War will not count towards your Alliance War Season Score. War Season eligibility rewards will be reduced to 2 Wars in the Season.

We understand that this is not a perfect solution, but without the ability to remove or freeze the War Rating quick enough, the rest of our Alliance War season would be compromised.

This war will remain active, and in-game, you will still see the season until tomorrow. After we end the season tomorrow, we will be taking some time to collect data and remove the changes to the Alliance War Season score. Once that is complete, we will be able to send out Alliance War Season rewards.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Flashy animation off button?

Amazing_Demon05Amazing_Demon05 Posts: 2,849 ★★★★★
Can we get this please?

Currently I have a useless 5* darkhawk? Why useless because he lags my device as soon as I use a special 3
at least dark hawk lags it when he uses a sp3 so I can fight against him

But vision aarkus is absolutely worse. And the upcoming nova also seems like he is gonna make my device cry.
I seriously hope you can add a graphic setting in the next month update or the next month EQ is gonna be un-doable for a lot of people.

Some people might say get a better device and I know obviously the games will get better and better and I would need to keep changing device from time to time to catch up But mine isn't that old or anything.
Not getting to play isn't gonna benefit me or either kabam so its only better for everyone to find a solution and I think as more and more people keep saying a graphic adjusting button is a good and viable option
just let us turn off the flashy stuff in some way so that It can work fine

The animations are appreciated, the characters are getting better and better but for those of us whose devices can't handle the animations for now please find a solution.

    Yea I hate darkhawk too cause he lags my device along with vision arkus I pray I never get them

    I never fight aw and aq on my phone because it will usually crash. Instead I have to fight aw and aq on an iPad, which took some time to get used to.
  • Been suggested many times, hopefully some day they will look into adding a Setting for this.

    When I purchase a phone, I already take into account current and future specifications. Playing MCOC with a device that has less than 2 GHz processor or 4 GB RAM is not an option anymore. This means your device will cost at least 300 EUR (Idk what it is GBP or USD). Also, every two years you have to buy a new one with even higher specifications for hopefully the same price. That is the sacrifice you make by playing this game.

    However, I do believe Kabam should make a LITE version or mode of this game with less graphics. If you would ask around, nobody really cares about graphics.

    Agreed with OP. My Galaxy S8, which is not the worst phone out there, is struggling more and more especially with the latest released champs (and Omega Red when his field is active). At this rate, mcoc will be unplayable in less than 6 months unless I spend money I currently can't afford to spend to replace a mobile phone that is perfectly functioning otherwise... and that's not an option.

    @Colonaut123 Nobody cares about graphics? I remember playing frogger where everything is boxes and games like that. I enjoy the graphics and dont want to go back to the days of boxes shooting different shaped boxes.

    that's why the graphic settings would work so we can all adjust
    people who like the HD graphics can go with that
    people who like the HD graphics but their phones can't handle that need to go with the low graphics unfortunately

    I did take into account my future game rigs with my current device specifications
    my current device HAS a 4gb RAM
    and like my device runs mcoc like butter until these guys with flashy animations come in like a burned up toast

    looking at the nova gameplay his heavy scares me so much its like if he hits he lights up the entire screen
    Even silver surfer's heavy charge make it lags just a bit
    but If I take nova's heavy oh boy I am sure I would even get comboed to hell after that because no way the lag will let me control my champ
    I mean we are already potentially wishing we don't even get these champs because they will be useless
    not even arena fodder. nobody wants their game to start lagging even by a bit

    I am seriously hoping they turn this into a real thing.
    I think the game DOES automatically reduce graphics and stuff depending on devices but it's not enough let us decide how much we want to do that so we can run our game smoothly
    We all love the flashy stuff. Nova looks great, vision aarkus' chilly ice is pretty cool and dark hawk looks fancy in that invisible and null mode but the LAG just isn't worth it.

    The flashier stuff is increasing month by month champ by champ
    Please kabam devs you need to look into this.

    Or what's actually easier for kabam is they just will stop supporting lower end devices because that's what they are allowed to do i believe early this year they changed what devices they support. Won't be surprised if early next year they change it again.

    I'm also pretty sure programming in a lower graphic quality mode isn't as easy as one thinks and wouldn't be surprised if it then causes more bugs.

    Maybe a skip button for the sp3.

    A lot of us don't actually have lower end devices Like I said above it's decent enough to run a lot of other games
    Not all of us are using a 4-5year old device
    and it still lags

    mine is a android 8, 4gb ram, snapdragon 625
    They are welcome to stop supporting really low end devices which obviously can't run the game, but not all of us have that, our game is working fine until the flashy guys come in where it lags.

    I am sure there will be more coding to do for this kind of an option
    but I am not sure how much effort it would take

    lets say it isn't easy at all, it all boils down to the point I made in the first post we don't want to stop playing and I am sure kabam doesn't wanna lose their playerbase either for something like this because I am sure that numbers of active players do matter. It's their business they gotta do the hardwork. if they want more active players, it's that simple, I am not threatening or being a smart mouth that's just how it is.

    I would like to be able to skip the special 3 animation all together. This game requires soooooooooooooooooooo much time. I purposely don’t use third specials just to save those few seconds that add up over the course of a million fights.

    If I ever get jellied by a SP3, I pause and quit to save those seconds too.

    Exactly the same for me, have complained many times with no changes.

    fun fact: "pro" gamers routinely go to lower framerates to speed up their gameplay in battle royale/pvp games, which gives them a marked advantage. I'm sure a fair tradeoff for lower framerates for folks like you would be eliminating Legend competitions, which should go over well with everyone who doesn't have the issue.

    a "skip sp3" button shouldn't be difficult, however i guarantee, outside of a KO or stun, the defender will get a free hit after the skip regardless of whatever button mashing you try.

    Theres an app that lowers resolution for games. Dont remember what its called but i used it for a while to conserve battery

    they are using unity engine its easy to add graphic control setting its not hard at all as im a gamedev my self

    With my device, an LG Q Stylo+, I can change the level of resolution and the frame rate for any games that I have. Not saying you can/can't, but maybe see if your device does this as well

    I am fine with not getting the legends run competition
    people who are getting lag due to this stuff are gonna hardly be competing for a legends run
    that requires a good iphone

    Their reasons are not arguable. Look at Marvel:Future fight! My badly iPhone 5S runs good with it at lowest graphics and everything the characters does with their crazy cool animations is just fluid. It’s doable and visible. Mcoc is big but the zoom is close to an character during fighting so the low quality isn’t much to notice after some time.

    Kabam... you know you can do something about this but choose to not do.

    Happy customers with badly phones the happy revenue and all that thanks to the low graphic quality options.

    So true, my game lags up so horribly when I use Human Torch (5* R4) or Mysterio (5* R1) that I don't play with them anymore until and unless the node or champ specifically requires them

    What are u even talking about? Everything what you said is so wrong i dont know where to start. First of all, all pro players lower their graphics setting to the bare minimum to get as much FPS as possible in ANY game, higher framerate means smoother gameplay and its easier to see and react to situations. Second if u increase graphical settings by killing performance to get lower frames, game does not slow down but it runs on same speed just skips frames and u miss on key animations timings.
    Third, higher/lower framerates does not increase/decrease loading times. In legends run ONLY one thing matters is loading times between fights.

    Its impossible to turn off sp3 animations because on 5* and 6* champions there is increase/decrease damage bar that u need to time it and click it.

    I don't want to sound like a jerk, but no. When buying a phone that is one thing, but you should not have to buy a phone every 2 years to play the same mobile game as when you bought the phone.
  • SETTING for Flat, 2D Backgrounds for fights. No need for 3D and animations going on while you’re fighting. Ships flying around, etc.

    Theres no need to create 2D stages, there is simpler solution just reduce quality and resolution of textures, reduce particle count, disable antialiasing. This would increase total game size on your device and would increase performance dramatically.

    This sounds very interesting.
