    I figured this out after getting wrecked a couple times.

    When you are running towards each other in the opening fight animation, when the text says FIGHT! Pause it, wait for 3 seconds, hit play, and there won’t be any lag.

    This has worked 100% of the time for me.

    when the fight starts my champions don't move because of lag. Some times after 4 kills I can move but using revives the lag comeback again.

    Kabam should enable invulnerability boost on master and uncollected Darkhawk until fix the bug.

    OK, I just retried and the "Pause" trick seems to work. At least the lag is not really preventing you from doing the initial evade and bait the SP2.
    Using this technique I was able to do 3 successful runs in master (no revives used) where without I would not be able to do even one...
    So, pause the game when the "Fight" appears, wait 10 seconds and start the fight. Hopefully you'll see the difference.

    I have to do the same thing when I get a lag-spike generated by receiving a ton of helps for champs in arenas.

    Pause it for a few seconds for whatever is loading to finish, then get back into the fight.

    Got tired of doing it so I no longer request help for arena champs. Only request it for energy now.

    Extreme lag at the beginning of the fight, whenever darkhawk uses specials, and whenever darkhawk dashes in. Almost completely unplayable as I’m unable to interact, respond, or see what’s happening. Too much going on visually and it just flat out fails.

    Same exact issue and same equipment. That’s why I quoted

    Hey All,

    Thank you for your patience. I come with some good news! We believe that we have found the cause of these Issues, and are working to test them right now. I don't have a timeline for release right now, but I wanted to update you all on the progress!

    Again, thank you all for your patience as we worked to identify the cause of this issue.

    an official communication is all I wanted, thx for that :)

    just saying, either today the lag was not that bad or the "Pause" thing did work, I was able to 100% 3.2, no units or revive used so imo it's worth the shot...

    I finally had a lucky start and managed to get datkhawk down to 31% using only venom(the rest of my team eliminated by lag). I revived and healed, it actually stared the fight without booting! Everything was fine and I had him at 8% hp, launched sp2, was about to have the finishing blow, and BOOTED!!!! Restarted game, lag killed him off at the start.....

    SERIOUSLY?!?!

    Wonder how much of a whale you need to be to get through Darkhawk. Seatin seemed to be able to do it without the noticeable lag.

    Lifers here are just as valuable as whales. Without the players that invest time instead of money, the population of this game would be pretty slim

    Will there be compensation?

    Only way my fight loads is if my phone crashes first!
  • I've the same problem, cant evade sp2 and my game's crashing on this champ.

    even if we at the start stop the fight for a few seconds, during the fight the lag comes back with its skills... hope the resolution comes quickly.
  • Same has been happening to me on iPhone. I have an iPhone 6s+ and it lags so bad, I had a full team and he destroyed every single one of my champs, I was unable to dash back or do anything at all.

    Glad to see I’m not the only player experiencing Lag at the beginning of the fight. I had to use 8 revives to finish darkhawk off since he just wrecked me at the start of almost every fight, within 2 seconds really. I play on the new iPad with iOS version 12.1. Not sure I will even attempt to fight him again.

    This worked for me. Sharing in case it may help others.

    At the start of the fight during the initial "run up" by both champs, I hit PAUSE. Wait for a few seconds. Then un-pause and the run up would finish with little to no lag at the fight start. I'm thinking my phone was taking longer to process the game start than the run up time, so it would lag at the beginning of every fight, not just Darkhawk. That first 'fight-start' parry would never connect on other champs, and Darkhawk would wreck me as my 'fight-start' swipe back to evade his unblock able hits would not register.

    Once I started pausing that run up, the lag was gone, and I finished UC 100%.

    Hey Summoners!

    We've got some more news for you!

    While we still don't have an exact timeline, it looks like the fixes we were testing for these issues have been effective at reducing performance issues in encounters with Darkhawk! This will require a new update to the Game, so we are working on building a Hotfix release right now! We'll let you all know as soon as we have more information or a release date!

    Yes! Hopefully it really does fix it for everyone that has this issue!

    M.O.D.O.K works well. Dodge SP2, parry use heavy. Just block SP1 and continue using ONLY heavy attack since he has auto block and incinerate takes off health quite well.

    I wish I had seen this before I wasted my stash of revives tonight

    thats good news! could you provide more info on reducing the performance issues? because reducing is not the same as 100% fixed. atleast hope the crashing and the lag from the start of the fight is fixed.

    In-Game Name: RARA_ANZAI
    Device and Model: IPAD AIR2
    Device Operating System: (iOS 12.1)
    Cellular or WiFi: WiFi
    Game Version Installed: 12.1.0
    Game Mode: Event Quests (Darkhawk boss)

    Description of the Issue: When facing Darkhawk boss, it starts with lagged framerate before the "FIGHT" word and when I have my thumb on the screen ready to dash back, the animation looks like missing few frames, got hit and die. This behavior happened to all tries. Lost all heroes because of not able to dash back during the start of the fight. Everytime I restart the path to the boss, the same lags happened and sometimes it crashes the game when entering for the 2nd or 3rd try.
