Attack taps occasionally stops responding mid-combo (different from lag/connection problems)

Occasionally when doing normal Combos, after about MLL the subsequent taps tor finishing rest of combo just goes totally unresponsive (see notes as to what this is NOT related to)...

- it is not from lagging (background will continue moving, and opponent will start to retreat or attack me once he sees he is no longer being hit with the rest of my combo, even though I am tapping the screen trying to attack).
- it is not from connection problem (see prior, also no “check connection” msg appears at bottom)
- It is not from a bad stylus pen (I switch to my finger and same thing happens)
- It is not from bad touchpad pixels (I’ve rotated device and same happens tapping opposite side of screen)

I have seen this happen very rarely over the past month, but once it starts happening it will continue very often like maybe once every 5 combos (so happens multiple times during course of several Arena fights). I have powered device off and back on, and device was not “hot” like from some long arena session.
Almost seems similar to like a keyboard auto-repeat or delay type of issue, as repeated fast tapping during a combo maybe not be recognizing the separate taps so fast (?)

Device: iPad 6th Gen (2018), iOS v11.4.1
Game: current Feb. Update of MCOC
Gameplay: Arena (this time), but recall it happening in quests other times it has started happening too.

Has anyone else seen this behavior ? (separate from the normal Lagging type situation, which is why I didn’t just lump this together into those big threads)

    Yes. I have. Same here. For two to three months this now and I have a Samsung galaxy s7 edge with the latest software updates.

  • That’s how they fix Mr. Sinister

    Yep me too. Galaxy S9. I'm certain of it happening in arena, but am uncertain if it's happened in other areas of the game. I wonder if it is an arena thing or an Android thing. Be interested to hear device type and where it happened for others as this usually leads to a combo to the face.

    I’ve had this issue and I find it’s related to my device and not MCOC. You can google for possible solutions or fixes that involve changing settings inside your OS. There is also an easy test you can perform to see if your device is the issue. Screenshot a white back ground, draw a grid over that screenshot and tap each box to see how accurate your device actually is.
