**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
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.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
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.
More information here.
**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!

More Battlegrounds "bugs" - defender choice is a lie?

Sorry if this is already something that has been discussed ad nauseam. I try to read all of the battleground discussions but since I don't play it all the time, what just happened to me seemed very surprising and not something I'd read before.

So we pick our battleground decks. And then my opponent gets to choose their Defender. They pick Bishop.

Because they picked Bishop as their defender I'm already thinking ahead of time as "who would be a good champ against them, who should I not pick right now as MY defender".

That's how the game is supposed to work, right?

So I pick my Defender for them, and then when it goes back to my choice to pick my attacker - suddenly the defender is Scorpion. Which was NOT what the game showed me before, which was not at all what I'd been preparing to fight.

Is this a known issue? I know there are a TON of problems with battlegrounds right now and Kabam doesn't seem to care. Is this one of the known problems? I only just started playing season 6 and I'm already ready to stop because of this BS.

    I have experienced similar issue where I clicked and switched the champs and it did not add the selected champs.
    Its annoying.

    Similar issue I noted above, and if the other posts are accurate, one that has been going on for a while.

    It would be great to have acknowledgment from the team as well as a plan for addressing this particular bug.

    I will also add to this that selecting a champ with less than 3 seconds tends to result in auto-select also.

    No hard evidence, but I would ask whether this somehow relates to the visual lag that can be seen in threads like this one:

    What we see appears to not exactly be what the server/game/whatever thinks is going on.
