**Mastery Loadouts**
Due to issues related to the release of Mastery Loadouts, the "free swap" period will be extended.
The new end date will be May 1st.

The game is still UNPLAYABLE

Even after all these "updates" and some minor compensation (not that I'm complaining about 2500 5* shards), the game is still unplayable.

Specifically: LAG.

More advanced game modes like AQ, AW, and anything in Act 5 (although, I'm sure there are aspects of Acts 1-4 that affect other players as well) are legitimately unplayable due to insane amounts of lag in game, the game not recognizing player input, timing for everything is off--it is simply unplayable.

What is being done to address the heavy lag in game?

I'm using an iPhone 6+ on iOS 11.0.1

    Parry has been nerfed. And it is clearly a cash grab.....

    I think parry is actually better now after the more recent update. There are still a litany of other problems, though, that make gameplay impossible.

    Parry undoubtedly worse for me

    Just had huge lag spikes in AQ twice in a row. Lost the second fight as the champs froze up on my screen and then it came up with a lost message.

    I have no clue what is going on but this is just insanity.

    going into fights and during fights in 5.2.6 I'm getting network connection problems on full 4G and full wifi then it times out. This just started a few minutes ago. As if this act isn't a units grab in the first place now it's KOing me and refilling opponents HP.

    Definitely seeing troubles with frame rates and random lack of responsiveness inputs. My favorite is always holding down a block but seeing your champion run full tilt at your opponent.
  • The amount of lag is a joke at the moment. It happens more in fights with harder AI.

    Is this caused by the programmers doing too much with the AI for the local device to handle, or is this a network latency issue from making calls to the server continuously?

    If the former, then you really need to optimise the AI code to make the game playable.
    If the latter, why the hell would you need to make server calls mid-fight? That's just crazy - it's a mobile game, and nobody can guarantee the quality of their mobile data connection.

    This level of performance is not acceptable for a game that has so much money spent on it. I for one don't enjoy watching my champions die because the game is not recognising my inputs or because the stuttering frame rate throws tap-timing off.

    I bought a brand spanking new Galaxy Note 8 just to play this game and see if the upgrade from a Note 3 was worth it.
    While it looks nicer, loads up a little quicker I am still getting stuttering, lag, lack of imput when blocking/parrying and AI that reacts so fast to things that it could never recover from this time last year. AQ Map 5 was a breeze with 4/5 4*'s when the game was working correctly. Now R5's and 3/5 5*''s are being slapped around like 3* champs!!!
    Please fix this game, Marvel is being diminished by your product Kabam!
    The game has become a chore now, the fun has been diminished MASSIVELY.

    I had an AI teleport to me to continue its combo. I dodged first two hits which put me on the other side of the screen and it literally teleported to my toon and did the last three hits of the combo. Various lag issues as well. Blocking not working till you get hit three times then it starts working for the last two hits. I’m sure I’ll find some more issues but it’s getting to be retirement time. They need to do a full code overhaul instead of these duct tape patches.

    Kabam doesn't really care... As you could read in the other 15.1.2 discussion, the problem is in our devices (good joke)... Btw the lag is hard everywhere, not just with harder AI, Act5, AQ and AW.

    Didn't use to have a problem with lag until now... also, does anyone get that white spinning wheel and/or "Problems connecting to network. Please check your connection" note at the bottom ALL THE TIME now, even though you never left the game? It used to pop up only if you left the game (switched screens to check line for a few minutes, for example) but now I'm getting it in game just doing regular game stuff like advancing through a map, starting a fight, switching in-game tabs.

    What is that discussion?.

    If the problem is our devices, then it's over, the fix is quit.
