    I call it the Heavy Attack exploit. Of course, the AI exploiting us.

    Another example is the AI instant heavy punching us starting the fight. There's no defense in that case.

    Kabam only addresses bugs that are unfair advantages to the players. Any bugs that are unfair disadvantages to the players get thrown to the pile lf bugs that's been there for over a year. It makes money in the short term. In the long term, I'm surprised that no one at Kabam has realized that when it catches up, the player base will start eroding so fast that no amount of free shards or new content will keep players playing. Every time there's frustration while playing because of bugs and lag, and a player ends up cussing the game and wondering why even play this game, it is bad for business. I personally have been very loyal to the game, it's an awesome game, it's the very first game that I have spent any money on, and I've already spent a few thousand into it... But I'm done, over a year since 12.0 and no real fixes, kabam is still using mediocre servers. However when something happens that benefits the players, they are quick to patch and ban people. I will be uninstalling the game in a couple of weeks when the season of AW is over. I am a confounder of my alliance and I want to get them through it, that's why I'm still on, but kabam has lost someone who used to be a cheerleader for their game.

    The issue is not that there is a bug causing your champ to Heavy attack. This is a direct result of the lag in the game combined with mashing buttons too quickly during a combo.

    Essentially, the game lags while you are tapping the screen and doesn't register that you have actually removed your finger from the screen, resulting in the game registering a heavy attack command.

    Two things can be controlled to minimize the issue: First is to not queue up a ton of champs needing helps (biggest known source of lag in the game) and the second is to slow down your screen tapping during your combos.

    All of that being said, the thing that Kabam needs to address are all of the sources of lag. Simply too many things happening at once that don't necessarily need to happen (like transmitting all received helps during an active fight).

    I had this bug for 2 months then had about 2 months clear, and now it is back, I noticed my dropped blocks were much better for those two months and are also back with regularity now

    Then the AI smash us between our combos. The tapping could be too fast for the game when the servers are lagging, but slow when it's not. We cannot have such adaptations for every input because we cannot to predict the server response for every instant.

    Anyway that problem is in the gameplay, the game must not confuse two very different inputs, specially if the reason is: because the servers are lagged.

    BTW, about the helps, some times it's me(us) but a ally.
    And sometimes the lag isn't due to the helps.

    100% Agree.

    It's sad when average users have better ideas about how to design a videogame than the professionals did it.
  • It’s not just the help button I haven’t helped or asked for help in roughly a month and up until recently I didn’t have issues. Once I uploaded the new updates it became bugged glitches etc. I’m on both a iPhone 8+ and the latest iPad. Still have issues. So it’s for sure not my devices. It’s called fix your game kabam. Stop with the silly back door stuff such as enhancing the ai. Which everyone knows you did. Idk if that’s by hook or crook but it’s abundantly clear.

    As for the heavy attack bug. I usually get instant heavies against me. Especially on high pi opponents the game just goes to lame.

    My fighters keep randomly running into heavies while I hold block on the opposite side of the screen.... it's awesome. I love dying for no reason other than this game glitching out whenever I'm destroying the opponent.
