What have GL done to the game?? Been playing nearly 3 years and this is the worst i've seen it by a long shot... game constantly crashing in all game modes, game freezing, ads playing but get nothing for them. Sort it out GL!

Latest update - latest cock-up!

Ad videos play but nothing happens when they've finished, EXCEPT event StW.

Will this never end?
Turns out I wasn't just old and grumpy - I was right to be p!ssed right off!

There's cock-ups and there this shower of shite though! I play one event chapter, it crashes. I play pvp, it crashes. Drone missions.. it crashes. Play ads, it crashes or freezes, and if it doesn't i don't get any reward anyway. The whole game is fubar.

Arena - Disconnections for Android players

Sun Sep 06, 2020 12:14 pm
.
The issue
Android version players experience significant disconnections in the Arena when compared to iOs and Windows version players.

The solution
Please either:

a. fix this issue, or (if it can't be fixed)...

b. code the game such that disconnected players are:
i. refunded all consumables used 
ii. not awarded a negative score
iii. refunded the 2 tickets spent to enter the match
iv. refunded any rubies spent and/or
v. awarded the battle pack (as applicable)

... and optionally (to the attached screen):
vi.   add the score on disconnection
vii.  add a disconnection reason / error code
viii. add an apology.
ix.  add a list of/display all of the refunds (see points i to v - above)

See screen pic.

Measurement of issue
An average of 19.1% of matches end in disconnections for Android players. This number is the "average of averages" measured by five players over a three month period spanning 4 playing seasons. This equates to around 1 in every 5 matches wasted for Android players.

Observations
There are easily observable circumstances (that are repeated frequently) as to when these disconnections occur. Testing (extensively) over (say) 2 months should show these errors up easily such that the developers can address them. Reasonable (basic) data analysis would support this.

Comments
This on-going systemic situation that disadvantages Android players is, clearly, unacceptable and requires resolve if you expect players to heavily invest in this sub-product.

... and pic 2.

Look at the time stamps in each file (in the file name).

This sort of basic counting error is very annoying.

Pic 3 (attached to this post) was taken well *after* Pic 1.

Why does my score to from 534 down to 526 then down again to 523? In that time I played Armageddon Arena matches and was "last man standing" so my score should be going up (not down).

Again, see the file names for the precise time stamps.
