As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

    I'm just about to fully explore this tonight or tomorrow, so I'm glad someone posted this. I'd love to hear an update.

    Also, does this happen everytime or intermittently?

    My screen went dark many times too.
    After returning to the home screen before force quitting the app because it went dark, I opened the game again and was able to press the end of battle button, I pressed it to revive my champion and fight again.
    Then I saw that Khan had gone from phase 2 to phase 4.
    Phase 3 seemed to be gone.

    Same for me, 5 times in total. Definitely one of the most annoying issues lately.

    The last 3 runs I took:

    1st run: human torch took him to the end of phase 1, and after the cut scene he is transitioned to phase 3.

    2nd and 3rd run: took him down to the end of phas 1 with torch and ultron, screen went black and had to press the quit button. When I restarted the fight after reviving my champs, I was in phase 3.

    My first 3 runs were done earlier and did not seem to suffer from the bug.

    I'm on iOS 15.3.1 running an iPhone 8.

    I was aware of this issue, but I did an easier path this morning and completed kang with no bug issues. I proceeded to go down the “prowess” (slipstream link node) path next, got to kang, died halfway through phase 1. Went back in with Ultron and had my best run yet where I got him all the way to phase 4, but transitioning into phase 4 I got the endless black screen glitch. I was forced to quit the app and restart, bringing me back into phase 1.
    I attempted to fight him again, but this time while transitioning into phase 2, I got the black screen and forced to quit the app again. I will give it some time before I go back to attempt again, because I really don’t want to have to back out of this current run.

    I am running a fully updated iPhone 12. Game and software up to date. On strong personal wifi.

    This happened to me also many times (with my Ultron). After trying and trying, need to kill my Champ and restart from phase 1.
    Spent a lot of additional resources due to this bug.
    Finally I manage to kill Kang the 6 times. :-(

    Description of the Issue: Facing superior Kang. Once phase 1 is complete the game goes black screen after he rewinds time. Black screen does not go away and forced to close app. When returning to pre fight screen Kang has jumped to phase 3. Entering back into the fight going into phase 4 same issue happens and the fight goes to black screen.

    This happened on 5 seperate paths and runs.
    Multiple revives wasted to complete buggy content.

    Screen goes black. Glowing light in left corner. Can get it respond to show pause/quit but that is all. Have to either quit (lose champ) or force quit app. Happened in 3 of 6 fights for me. All using r3 Ultron 6* as my champ. Frustrating and cost a few items in the end.

    I don't understand why there isn't a notice about this in game or banner on the forums. It would be good to know there is a problem with the fight before going into it..
  • Saske97Saske97 Posts: 72
    Didn't have a problem on the other paths but it happened twice today in the span of 10 minutes after finishing the Persistent pressure, Buff Synthesis and Power Axis path.

    Active Boosts: No Boosts active

    Description of the Issue: After finishing phase 1 and 3, the screen went black as soon as Kang's animation concluded. Only options available were to quit the fight or force close the app. The first time the game allowed me to restart the fight as it counted as connection lost.

  • BoCassBoCass Posts: 61
    Same here!!!! It happened to me twice! First time I force restarted and luckily it let me do the fight again with full health. But then it did it again in the same fight so the force restart killed me!

    I don’t normally ask for compensation but cmon Kabam, I used 5 revives on the path and now it looks like I’ll have to exit the quest!!!


  • MaybeThisIsNotMeMaybeThisIsNotMe Posts: 141
    Had the same issue on my ipad. Screen going black at the end of phase 2. I tried twice and then decided to try on my iphone and then this happened: as phase 2 finished, Kang did his watch time rewind thingy twice in a row (with some odd visual effect in between) and I was straight into phase 4...
  • Buggster32Buggster32 Posts: 5
    I keep having same issues as well. Complete stage 3 then he does his reverse time and my screen goes black. I restart game complete stage 3 again and same thing.

    I knew the risk attempting this fight and sure enough I got kabmmed just now.

    I really don’t feel like posting the video of my shoddy fighting and your game failing, so here’s a screen shot of my team and all relevant info.

    iPad Air 4th gen
    iOS 15.4.1
    Latest MCOC version
    No boosts active

    Took the smorgasbord path
    Phase 2
    Using nick fury in his LMD phase vs Kang, I got to the wounded phase and the game blacked out after his timeloop animation

  • World EaterWorld Eater Posts: 3,520 ★★★★★
    Happened again in stage 3 using a different champion. Can post a vid if needed.

    I’ve got a full fight video for this. Recorded it after I had to force restart twice in a row due to black screen. As you can see in the video I also lost my odin pre-fights on my ultron. Not that that matters anyway because I couldn’t even get past the black screen after the first phase. I used 5 revives on the path btw so I’ll be upset if there is no comp for the players affected by this bug.

    Description of the Issue: 3 times in a row there was a black screen between phases as seen in the video. The first and third time it was between phase 1-2. The second time it was between phase 2-3.
  • L0TUS_MANTISL0TUS_MANTIS Posts: 220 ★★
    Same thing happened again from my last post. Phase 1 finished, black screen, restart, lost half health on Ultron and lost Odin pre-fights. Then again in same fight, I finished phase 3 with 6* Rank 3 Moleman, black screen, restart, lose half health, start again in beginning of phase 3.
    Come on Kabam any update on this issue?
    Was gonna do my initial completion of this quest but it seems I have to wait for a fix and save my resources.
    Good thing I always check these forums before I start some questing.

    Wake up Kabam.
