Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

    Description of Issue: Framerate and Beta input system

    Game framerate has been terrible for past few days, from inconsistent frametime to flat on fps drop below 5fps. Please take a look at it.

    Plus this new input system works only worse compared to old one. Not only parry is not consistent but sometimes heavy attack and special button does not register at all.

    Please reinstate the compensation packages. My champions keep doing the following in solo and group content:
    1) throw random heavies because of dropped input
    2) randomly don't move because of dropped input
    3) randomly dash forward and throw a heavy attack because of dropped input
    4) randomly just sit there and block and there is nothing I can do to get them to stop blocking because of dropped input

    Yes you have completely fixed the Parry mechanic in the game as far as I'm concerned. Thank you for that, the community greatly appreciates what you did. However the other issues still in the game are severely affecting gameplay and my potion inventory.

    I do map 7 in my alliance and I have path six on the Sasquatch boss map in section 2. I don't think you have a single inkling of my struggles. That's the Lazarus path. How can I avoid getting hit if I'm randomly throwing heavies if I'm randomly blocking and I'm randomly dashing forward? It is severely draining my inventory of potions and now you have cut off compensation.

    Either reinstate compensation until these other bugs are addressed or I'm going to run out of potions and have to retire from the game. A game I have been playing since it came out that I love to play. However if I choose to spend money on the game it's not going to be the compensate for your bugs. The ball is in your court now. 😕

    Yeah games in terrible state, beta is possibly worse than old game, can’t chain combo to special, as you hit special the last hit in the combo stops 3/4 of the way through to fire the special so the defender just blocks your special then kills you, block dex and parry just decide not to work about 10% of the time, sticky feet after combos so can’t reliably swipe back, specials hitting you when you are out of range (often the first hit connects the. They finish their special but you remain stunned and out of range as they whiff the other hits in the special.
    Ai is different, they don’t hold block anymore when you run at them if they were holding block, instead they are much more jumpy and parry you when they were holding block, or special intercept, night crawler is almost impossible to get to switch stances anymore they just won’t hold block while you are hitting them like they used to

    Description of Issue: Regular and Beta input fail

    Using regular inputs, I have the oft described issues. No need to elaborate on those. Using beta, parry is slightly better, double evades still don't work most of the time and I have an additional issue: block fails. I can literally press my left thumb on the screen for seconds, see my champ blocking, only to have the opponent hit straight through it. It often happens in consecutive fights. Very annoying in BG - impossible to get a consistent steak going. I already quit serious alliance stuff when the original issues started, and now left my retirement alliance as well. It's THAT bad. And the beta doesn't really alleviate the issues. It simply comes with a different set.

    Game is not fixed, either in the beta or not my champs are not blocking or dashing back or parry. This is getting worse then before and you decide to just drop the compensation, The IGM was a week ago and that is very little notice which is pretty much 0 to the community. The transparency has become no transparency at all and the communication has always been horrible.

    EOP is even worse with these issues and for the players that are not top skilled or a “whale” can’t complete this and that eliminates them from the competition.

    This game is going down hill fast and soon we will see a notice like MROC.

    Happens with beta/regular controls on

    1- Hard to show without a video but no effect with Parry. No stun or purify. Has happened multiple times.
    2- Dex is slow/sticky like others have said as well.
    3- Delay between my combo end and special which causes opponent to block.

    These 3 happen sporadically and so I can’t see a pattern. These issues have started again around the time the AQ maps were updated.

    This week the game no longer blocks at allllllllllllllllllll. I have gotten to the Champion in 6.2.6 and it's a waste of time. I've restarted the game three times and the Champion continues to hit through blocks and parry attempts. Also, a week ago Wednesday I purchased items in the game and did not receive them. Yes, I filled out a ticket for that issue as well. Kabam responded they were swamped with tickets and have not responded to any of my follow up requests in the 10 days since. So you charged me for items, didn't give them to me and now your game is unplayable due to the inability to block/parry. May I ask Kabam Mike or others how is this not stealing?

    This is basically an update to my post above: the issues seem to be getting progressively worse on the listed devices. Block fails more and more. My champion visibly blocks for seconds (e.g., while trying to bait a heavy in Battlegrounds), the opponent hits straight through it. Additionally, I now have more 'sticky champ' problems, and trouble in getting specials to fire. I will revert to regular controls: this beta kinda sorta helps with parry (still inconsistent, just slightly less so), but adds a ton more issues to the mix. Of note: I can have a few fine-ish fights, in between, but these issues are so prevalent it is borderline impossible to get a decent string of wins in.

    Game Mode: In which game mode did the error occur? I am having troubles with my game crashing at random points. Either I will load it up and during the logging in/loading it crashes, or I get in the game start a quest and fight one fight then it crashes, Sometimes I get in three fights then it crashes. It also does this during arena, champion upgrading, or AQ. There seems to be no mode which it doesn't happen in. This has become more of an issue and started around the time Psychoman came into the game and wondering if there is any checking into this.

    I reposted similar comments to what I've said before as the issues continue to persist and was curious if Kabam is looking into it. @Kabam Miike

    I’m having the same issue. It seems to happen when I pull down notifications tab and the game self pauses. Champ will hold heavy until interrupted or until it can’t be held any longer. Afterwards, I can no longer heavy the entire match. Pausing by pull down notifications seems to reset it again.

    Kabam, the game has gotten worse! You said it’s fixed but it has gotten worse with the dex and parry(for iPhone at least). Parry only works a 1/3 of the time a dex is at it’s worst. Ive been trying to to anything but this game is broken. When will the control input be fixed?

    The game is in the worst shape for me that it's ever been in, as of May 30, 2022. It isn't borderline unplayable. It's literally unplayable. EOP is out of the question for me given these issues. Cost my alliances a number of deaths due directly to these issues. This is really, really unacceptable. Enjoy this game so much but it's not fun at all right now and there's just only so much more of this I can take. I'm nostalgic for when the only real issue was parry not working. Hoping you can get this sorted out soon.

    I was coming here to report the exact same thing. It isn’t consistent from fight to fight. I just went an entire fight not being same to heavy, then very next fight parry/heavy worked just fine

    Happens in all game modes
    - Random Lag and extreme freezing or pauses in the game which ruins combat flow, also frames fluctuate from high to low randomly which causes gameplay to feel choppy. I just recently got Cavalier which was much costed many more revives and units due to lag and freezing during big boss battles. Ive tried restarting phone, re installing mcoc, updating ios, clearing cache, no background apps, yet nothing changes it. Whats worse is that it seems to be completely random, 1 second its ok gameplay then the next second full on freeze while trying to parry, intercept, throw a special, its just random.

    My thought is that its an issue caused by background processes in the operating system or that the cpu is running at 100% and things like animations are causing it.

    Hope this gets resolved

    time to say good bye to mcoc i guess. this is crazy. they are focusing on the animations when the devices cant handle it. GOOD luck making the game beautiful. this is now only iphone 13 pro max game. others just suffer.

    This game must have a fundamental memory issue. Fights are varying from slow, fast, stuttering and freezes. Happening everywhere in the game.

    Hopefully kabam addressing this sometime soon and my guess is that a lot of complaints will be reduced dramatically.

    Reducing the amount of animations will help too.
