Cost 2,880 x 2 = 5,760 Arena tokens

Not impressed by this at all.

Arena - Score rollbacks

Thu Sep 10, 2020 12:49 am
.
Played some Arena matches for 20 minutes. Was "last man standing" in Armageddon.

Two pics taken 20 minutes apart.
Pic 1, attached to this post, was taken *before* I started playing, then 20 minutes later,
Pic 2, attached to the next post, was taken.
 
Look at the numbers.

The filenames contain a date and time stamp.

This has been happening all season.

There's no point grinding in the Arena to get to Top 3 under these circumstances.

Arena - Score rollbacks

Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:34 am
Here we are again.

Play Arena matches for 22 minutes.
Achieve "last man standing" many times.
Start at score of 550
Finish at score of 545
Score goes down not up.
The score should never go down (unless it's the end of the season when it resets).

Check the file names of the attached pics for time stamps in this post and the next post.

The pic attached to this post was taken 22 minutes *after* the pic in the next post.

Re: load 66%, hang, glatg_11...again

Tue Sep 15, 2020 7:44 am
Same thing again since about an hour ago...ie game loads to 66%, hangs for 30s-1m, then glatg_11 error msg...ios, eur server...what gives, how long...has been difficult to connect still & lots of reconnects.

Receiving multiple "Unable to login. Please try again" messages this AM (IOS on iPhone). There are no WiFi issues on iPhone, restarted game several times.  Rebooted phone as well, problem is definitely on the Gameloft side of the fence, please fix!

Thank you for postg this!  I had the same prblm strtg abt 11hrs ago & it contd until I took a brk abt 6hrs ago.  Now since abt 30mins ago whn got back on game has been back to normal (altho normal has been more crashg & reconectg thn usual for last cpl wks).

Symptoms were w/no warng or othr hapeng b4 (ie just out of nowhere) tried as usual to reopen game aftr closg aftr playg a misn in the exotic event (since bad conectivity strtd, ben best to close & reopen like this to psoibly avoid crash) & lo/bhld game strts only loadg to 67% hangs for abt 30s-1m then glatg_11... error msg every time for the nxt 5hrs

Was temptd to waste time/data to del/reinstl, but hav seen a similar issue to this a few wks ago (one othr postd abt it but prblm was disregrdd), so decided to wait & now gameplay seems to be back (conect to eur server)

Chkd the forums, fb, etc many times & saw nothg so thot mayb my local s/w was the prblm (didnt thnk it was my intrnt conect), but obv'ly not; so oftn seems like its just my prblm, but this is b/c we dont post these issues (at least not on the forum, altho it is time-consumg for me to do so), but this shows (once again) tht sumtimes u just hav to wait & try agn whn the prblm is doubtfuly on ur/playr side & more likely elsewhere/server side.

B/c of this, wish thr was a real-time game/servr status info sumwhr, but not tht iko, or a dedicated sticky in the forum for us to post game/servr status/conectvty issues only.

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.
.

.
1.
See screen pic attached to support the above issue.

The player pays the 100 rubies to ensure they do not 'lose Arena Rating for the duration' - when in reality Arena Ratings are lost on disconnection sometimes.

2.
Disconnections in the Arena have been occurring for one year. See the following post for another reference to the disconnections from one year ago.
