    What about the Top Player Leaderboard?
    Blank page at the end of a League Season if you don't move up or down a league.
    Crashing to the home-screen when pressing 'Next Match' while searching in Multiplayer.

    Nice they fixed the archers on the castle though.

      I thought the war loot bug was fixed, but in my last world war I didn't get my loot.

        Looks like there was an update today for iOS.. ETA or location for release notes?


        • #6
          How about fixing war replays? They do not exist. Still #1 issue.

              Should really include the missing tactic glitch in this. Its been ongoing for months. Nothing like queueing up 6 tactics, and coming back 4 hours later to 3/6 poofed. Esp when they take so long to train. THis happens to me nearly every single day at least once.

                And if you open a ticket on it, they want you to tell them when you last battled, how much you paid for the missing tactics (really?!) and then try to tell you that you really used it. This amounts to stealing, as I have often had to crown a tactic to squeeze in a war attack that was fully prepped.

              I thought the "greater than 100% average destruction" exploit had been closed, but we are seeing it right now in our war. 125:125, but our opponent hit late in war for 108% and 102%, so they will "win" the war via average destruction (and cheating). Why has this not been fixed?

                The final score will be fixed, but the individual attacks may still show >100%. You will not lose.

                So higher than 100% is cut to 100 in the end sum? What about a 5 star attack that ended on the players screen witn 100% and then shows up with only 98% on the war map? We had that in our last war.
                Just cutting to 100 is no full fix!

              I just did a battle and the game froze and I lost all troops and the battle. When I restarted the game, I noticed the game keeps freezing, regardless of where I go within the game. I am not losing my internet connection, and I get no connection error, it just freezes up. Is something going on tonight with the game; has anyone else had this happening tonight?

              Just chatted with my alliance, and the same thing is happening to others.

              I've quoted the above post under 'Crash crash crash'. My mistake for posting it here; apparently it is not a known issue to Nexon, but it is to many other players.

                According to my talks with support "they are aware of that issue" or maybe they just give the same canned response to me over and over again. But I have the same issue, no more spinner disconnects but constant app crashes and phone freezing.

              Map edit crash (unable to edit base layout) is going to be the new training time error bug. Will not be solved as it happens always only to a small group of players (only every second member in our alliance). Very unpleasant bug, as new buildings can't be placed on a WW map.
              Again great effort from the whole team - CS keeps promising, devs not doing anything. 2 months without a proper WW base.

                I have the Brandenburg Gate, which gives me the blitzkreig tactic, but if I load the blitzkreig tactic the rest of my tactics are not on the list to use during war attacks. I have a lot of extra armies too, I scroll to the end, the blizkreig is always there, the other tactics are not, or sometimes one is there the rest are not. If there is a limit to the available spaces on that list, we should be told about it. Maybe the problem will resolve if I stop purchasing extra armies but I doubt the developers are likely to promote that particular fix. I write to the customer service. It seems that the customer service "people" are auto bots and the exact same responses are given over and over again with no actual resolution of any issue, ever. All of these unresolved coding issues make this game extremely frustrating to play. On the list of bugs and fixes, I have experienced most of these, along with my alliance members, and we are still experiencing glitches and problems that have been noted as "fixed". I don't see the tactics issue posted with regard to the blitzkreig tactic so I'm posting it. Considering switching to a different wonder because the blitzkreig is definitely not worth losing four other tactics. Also the not buying extra armies fix. I will see how that goes when I use up my inventory and have those slots empty.

                  Why is the "supply trucks(healers) stalling in one place and not doing their job" not here? this occurred to me too many times. you drop the healers, then the next thing you know there are not from where you drop them and not supporting your troops

                    Hello All, I have being playing this game for the longest time and I enjoy it much. Recently I changed my phone and when copied the game I had to start from scratch. But going back to my old phone to enjoy advanced level, I realized that I have been kicked out of the alliance and my alliance page is empty, meaning I cannot join any.
                    thanks Sam
