I've played around 30 minutes today and have not experienced slowness. I have not done anything though. It seems to be very random.

I really don't think so. Nothing related to that has changed in the most recent patch, and everything is very well-optimized now to where that shouldn't ever be an issue.

I have not noticed any unordinary slowdown with other games but I'll try to reboot my device.

Can it be because of the number of items I have in my inventories or maybe from a special setup of my party ?

Nope, the game only checks for online connectivity when the game is first started so that it's as unobtrusive as possible :)

Your phone's specs are far superior to my Galaxy S3 which doesn't appear to have any slowdown, hence my concern for the power saving issue. Have you tried rebooting your phone in case there's some stray software running in the background and clogging the RAM?

Have you played any other games to see if the slowdown occurs with those?

No need to be sorry, you can't remember every player. I play on a HTC One M7 with Android 4.4.3.

I've checked and I don't have any power saving mode enabled. The game has always been fluid (except for the slowness in realms when it still existed).

Can it be because the game checks online connectivity every once in a while ?

Sorry if I've asked before, but what phone/tablet are you running the game on?

I'm currently playing and I can add some precisions.
- Only the fights look to have this slowness, I can walk and browse inventory without any problem
- Putting the game in the background does not necessary make the slowness disappear
- I have closed all other apps and it does not help

No I have not installed any OS update lately. I'll continue playing and will try to come back with more precisions if it happens again.

If you're putting the game into background mode and then refocusing it and the slowness clears up, it sounds like a power management issue. Some devices freak out after the battery is reduced to a certain charge percentage (I've seen 30% and 10%) which could cause everything to slow down. If you're sure your battery was charged high enough, have you done an OS update lately that might have added some power management features or enabled ones that already existed?

Hello,

It seems the game is slowing after I play it for a while. I see that slowness when a creature dies. It flashes more slowly than usual. I don't know if it comes from the game or from my device, but I did not have this problem before 1.2.0.

I have to add that this slowness sometimes disappear without quitting the game. Sometimes I put it to background and it runs fine again. Sometimes it does not work that easily.

Hello,

I can confirm the game is working fine on Android with 1.2.4. I think the delay for closing a creature's artifact window is longer than before. It seems to be around 2 secs. Putting it back to something around 1 sec would be better in my opinion.

Zack, the D pad and buttons work great again, thanks for the quickie fix!  ;D

I tried to replicate my summoning crash and generate one of those spiffy pop-up crash reports, but I can't seem to do it again. So, perhaps that was fixed in this patch, too. My save games are embarrassingly old and I probably shouldn't be using them seeing how much has been added and changed since. But, alas, such a piece of work is man! ;)

I will chime in elsewhere in the forum if my little bugaroo pops up again; hopefully with a camera snapped screenshot (non-rooted Google device = no screens ;).

Thanks a humbling ton for your expertise and rapid fire... And for the future inclusion of my virtual avatar. Now I wonder what I will do if I ever meet my doppelganger in-game.  ::)

Yeah, if your save file deleted itself then it was definitely hardcore mode. There are a lot of safeguards in place to make sure your game data doesn't get deleted on accident anymore :)

Would you mind posting the crash when you summon something? It might be fixed by now, but I'd like to take a look anyway to make sure.

Hey Zack!

Oh, cool, thanks! I finally had a little time to sit down and play after the stream of updates put it fresh on my mind. I ended up wiping my party at level 16 and it deleted my game afterward. I must have set it to hardcore mode or something. I tried another old save game and it crashed when I tried to summon something. I will just start a new game after the next patch and try again.  :D

Looking good with all the new stuff. The patch notes read like an encyclopedia!
