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.

Arena Help Issue?

Idk if anyone else is having this happen to them. But when I click the help button after a round of arena, it shows that the action was acknowledged by the system. But I go in a few hours later and expecting my alliance buddies to have helped them by now but the 5* are always glitched like this. Anyone know possible reasons? My theory is that my alliance buddies didint press help and that the request was there too long and maybe timed out??

    something similar happens to me. after I finish a series and start picking the next three champs, I don't get an option to ask for help. I keep on doing arena and it never pops up until 20 minutes later, when every champ has the option to press it

    The client (your game, not the server) messes up the help request file for varied reasons. A Common cause is entering the incursions lobby (nearly 100% chance), also AQ can trigger it often, and refreshing your game after being logged out.

    So what should I do to prevent this?? As you can imagine with my tiny roster not being able to use 5* for a rotation kinda ruins my target goal.

    I haven’t seen any evidence it negatively affects your help requests, the server appears to maintain the list allowing your alliance mates to still help your champions even though your game thinks they are not queued up. The main thing it does to players is causes them to repeatedly redundantly request help and this is pretty tedious with larger rosters; thankfully the system was mentioned in the dev diaries and hopefully the changes they make will alleviate these problems.

    It's worse when you have 100's of champs that you have to hit the help button on. Just silly that a "help all" button breaks the servers (?), and you have this bug on top of it. Been going on for a very long time, and it's annoying for anyone who runs all their champs through arena.

    Sometimes it's a glitch, yes, but there's also separate timers for how frequently you can request help. This is only noticeable on 5 and 6 stars because of their longer cool down timers. What is happening is, as long you have received your 5 helps from your teammates, once that internal timer runs out, you are actually get an additional opportunity to request further help. The next time you run your 6 stars, you'll notice you can request help again about 7 hours (not sure the exact time) after you used them even though their cooldown is 12 hours. Regardless, it's still just annoying as I'm pretty sure each help only reduces the timer by 1-2 minutes.

    It's been glitched forever now.

    I *just* "helped" my other account with a BUNCH of champs, and lo, got *zero* time shaved off the reboot of said champs, AND they all had the little green '+' sitting there as though I were an idiot who never asked.

    Speaking of this arena idiocy, anybody know how much time somebody 'helping' a champ is *supposed* to shave off a 6* champ's reboot for arenas?

    Since the thread is already summoned from the depths of hell.... it's either 40 mins or 50 mins when 5 people press help.
    So either 8 or 10 min per help pressed...
    The number 10 looks more convincing but it's either of those for a 6*.

    Another problem is that when you request for help, the game freezes and you have to force quit and restart the game

    Help requests should be automatic, why would you ever not request it…just more button clicks.

    Ten whole minutes off 11 hours for a 6 star? Why they're practically *giving* the points away! lol
