Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.

    Hi, I just posted a few questions pertaining to this update, but the post has somehow automagically disappeared. So I’ll politely ask again.

    Am I correct in assuming the much reported lag/unresponsiveness has not been addressed in any way, shape or form, however slightly?

    Secondly, am I correct in assuming the acknowledged Inequity mastery bug has not been resolved with this update, despite an earlier official announcement that a fix would be rolled out within hours, only to be retracted at the last moment?

    I would really like those questions answered, and I guess a lot of the other 1k+ players who have reported similar issues would to. So do the community a favor and enlighten us. A simple yes or no would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    anyone getting the error message after updating,

    did it do the normal 500mb download after running the game after the update?

    if not, delete the game and reinstall and it should download the extra stuff needed to work correctly. it worked for me, hopefully it does for you too.

    It think if Carnage's buffs were 2 or 3* as strong he could be a viable cosmic champ.

    I remember last year I brought the Carnage buff question to the Mods very nicely and yet I didn't get a satisfying answer. It may be that it's a bit easier to Buff a champ that is new because the fixes are minor for them. However, when we come to Carnage who's been in the contest for almost a year now, there are probably a lot of other factors that will come into play. Carnage is one of my favorite Marvel characters and I would of course love to see him improved, but I'm not going to hold my breath. When it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, oh well.
  • Does this update fix defense synergies? Some synergies are obviously designed with alliance war defense in mind (Yondu and NC/Beast) yet they haven’t worked for months now.

    Mephisto doesn't cancel medusa's sig ability now, what about ice armor of iceman.

    That is working as intended. If you have something (like fate seal or soul imprisonment) that prevents buffs on a timer from activating after the timer runs out, the buff gets cancelled for the whole fight. This is how DS/GR can permanently disable arc overload 2.0 or ice armor. Been this way since the beginning

    Yes, but they have fixed one of these abilities i.e. Medusa's sig. So, is the fix general or just limited to Medusa?

    My understanding of the problem is that the problem (speaking technically) was with Medusa and not with Mephisto. Mephisto should cancel "buffs" that initiate at the start of combat. Medusa has no such intentional buffs. But there was probably an invisible pseudobuff in the background that contained the timer for her fury buffs. That invisible pseudo buff was getting canceled by Mephisto which then effectively deleted Medusa's fury buffs for the whole fight. That was an unintentional bug.

    But there is no general fix for buff cancellation preventing self-refreshing buffs from refreshing, because that seems to be the explicit intent. It isn't considered bugged behavior, so there's no fix coming. In fact, if Ice Armor somehow refreshed itself and reappeared after Medusa canceled it (outside of using SP3) that would itself be considered a bug that needed to be fixed.

    I'm pretty sure Kabam’s maths are wrong
  • IksdjvanIksdjvan Posts: 232 ★★
    Maybe I'm the only one and seeing three problems people are having maybe it's a good thing but.... why on earth would you release a game mode on Monday that you cannot access properly until Wednesday? (I don't count the easy difficulty as proper access lol)
  • IksdjvanIksdjvan Posts: 232 ★★
    My bad... I misread the announcement... sorry lol

    So I opened the game, it brought me on and I got this screen. I tapped continue and it let me continue the game, I claimed my t1 rift shards and went and opened the rift. After that I was sat staring at Thanos on the loading screen. After 10 mins I restarted the game, and I was sat looking at the same screen in the screenshot. I tapped continue and the game just froze. It won’t let me tap anything. Every time I restart I get the same thing.


    Now, this may not seem like a huge issue but that is half a normal, quarter a heroic and an eighth of a master. At the end of the event I may be stuck with 5000 master shards, heroic and normal and this rift I’ve missed may get me one last run on master. I think that’s pretty important. I’m currently re-downloading the game as I’ve uninstalled, but by the time it loads with my bad wifi it will be past the 1 hour of rift mark.

    @Kabam Miike can I get some sort of comment on whether this is an individual issue or others are getting it. Regardless I would like to see some sort of 10k t1 shards being given to anyone affected by it.

    Dropped blocks and blocks not registering is even worse than last update. The swipe back that turns into a dash forward instead. INSANE LAG!!!
  • The_GrandmasterThe_Grandmaster Posts: 205
    Bishop can not block fast enough without getting hit anytime I end a combo in a Medium attack such as MLLLM. With combos that end in a Light attack, MLLLL, he is able to block fast enough to avoid being struck. Just noticed this problem today after updating and fighting ROL Winter Solider. Can you please address and fix this issue. Thanks

    Every time I get the "flash screen" during the run in animation, the fight will be riddled with lag. Not mild lag, but the kind where you can't even play or you die.
    AQ and AW fights are the worst, but I'm not going to try to get video of that since it costs so much to heal/ revive.

    The "flash" screen is just garbled junk down in this screenshot.

    Fights without the flash intro seem to run smooth, but if it flashes, you might as well quit the fight right then.

    If kabam wants to send me a bunch of revives, I'd be happy to record some AQ fights showing the lag :D
    Only kidding.. but it needs to be fixed.

    Rolling back the update until this is addressed.
