Just installed the new update and the special buttons on the fight screen are too close to eachother. I keep accidentally triggering a special. First photo shows how it was before the update, second photo is new update. I’m using an IPhone.

    This is after


    This is before


    The special bar didn’t need to be moved and it makes the space from where you can swipe much smaller and anyone with average size hands or larger can attest to this as I’ve asked several friends in the community about this and they all don’t like this change. If you guys have the same issue or know anything else about it feel free to add to this.

    I’ve noticed this it’s having a effect on gameplay the space is too small 🤬

    You trigger specials when your using basic swipes.

    Why even make this change 👎🏼

    Needs to be changed back ASAP @Kabam Miike

    They barely touched it...
    Also how does this make the swiping space smaller? If anything it makes it bigger. You’re supposed to swipe in the middle not on the very bottom.

    The top picture is after so you can see that the special bar was moved up

    So by moving the special button up towards the middle of the screen, they have made the space bigger 😖

    How does this make the space smaller .... 🙄

    I honestly don’t know why kabam feel the need to fix things that aren’t broken.

    After today’s update, Ive been wondering why Im throwing specials while attempting to dash, AI blocks it and I’m getting a combo to the face.

    Please fix this asap. iPhone X user

    Welcome to the same issue android has had forever. I'm constantly accidentally firing a special while trying to block. Or blocking while trying to fire a special.

    Oh that's why i'm having a hard time doing specials on my iphoneX. Great observation. Thanks. Hope they will fix it soon. 👍

    It’s a huge problem because it’s a minor inconvenience and people like to make issues out of nothing
    isnt every issue in this game a minor inconvenience? If you have nothing to add to this, post your nonsense somewhere else.

    It’s a “minor inconvenience” because the buttons have moved and i keep accidentally hitting specials when I don’t mean to.
    Awww I’m sorry I didn’t agree with you :[
    It’s honestly not even an issue, i didn’t even notice it until someone pointed it out

    Tap somewhere else then.

    This is an honest question, so don't take it the wrong way. Wouldn't the special being moved inwards make it easier to avoid hitting? I guess it would depend on where you're used too tapping or swiping with your left hand for block/dash back. Personally I think it could be helpful in some ways, but to each their own. If it was done with purpose, you may have to adjust if the majority like it. Or maybe it was a mistake. Honestly do not know.
  • Can you tell us what iPhone device you're playing on and what OS version? Just wanna double check with the rest of the team on this!

    I’m on IPhone X 12.3.1

    Thank you
  • i have the exact same issue. i go to block and hit special because it’s too close to the center now. more than a minor inconvenience when you’re used to playing one way for years. using iphone xs.

    I also have the exact same issue. After 2 days of playing, I am hitting it accidentally less, but it is still an inconvenience. Also using iPhone X.

    Yes!! I thought I was being crazy at first but have missed so many times hitting the old position of special buttons. Also fired off a few unnecessary specials from getting used to keep my fingers at a position it wouldn’t hit special, now I suppose I have to keep my fingers at the health bars!!
    I’m using iPhone Xs
  • NOOOOOOOOPEEEEENOOOOOOOOPEEEEE Posts: 2,018 ★★★★
    Just 1 question. Why are you tapping so Damn low in the first place.
  • NojokejaymNojokejaym Posts: 1,298 ★★★
    i'll admit i thrown off some specials i didn't want to either but i ain't complaining
  • WedgemonsterWedgemonster Posts: 88
    I’ve been having the same problem. Glad it wasn’t just me. The buttons are closer toward the center and I keep accidentally throwing specials now, which gets you hit if you throw it into their block, or pushes them to sp3. It’s more than a “minor inconvenience” when the buttons are suddenly in a different spot than you’ve been playing with for years, and too close to where you rest your fingers to swipe. Ignore the fools that are the same to comment on everything trying to delegitimize everyone’s grievances. It must make them feel better about themselves.

    This makes me think about the Deadpool movie when his hand is growing back.

    But seriously please return the special buttons to their normal positions so my muscle memory can recover.

    I’m playing on an iPhone XS Max and since the new update I’ve been hitting the specials button by mistake lots of times instead of holding my block.

    Am I the only one with this problem?
    The special button and the bars of power seems to be further up on the screen.

    iPhoneXSMax here, experiencing this problem. I may have short thumbs but they didn't shrink..the buttons moved.
  • IAmPeeWeeIAmPeeWee Posts: 3
    I have the same problem! Playing on a iPhone XS Max !

    I haven’t really noticed since I dash with my right hand. I’ve kinda drawn out how I dash and dodge

    I guess it would be weird for people who dash with their left, but I find it more effective to use my right. Maybe some of u should give that strat a try

    Why are you holding your hands so low?
    I have the same phone and see no issue

    It's definitely different placing. Been quite a few times I was going to parry/evade and my so fires off
