This began happening after the most recent update. I am on Android and have latest Android update installed.
While on the map and rotating the map, or clicking supply drops, the map lags and lags, freezing and glitching. Happens when I’m sitting in a chair at home opening my local drops, or when I’m walking, or when I’m driving - so motion doesn’t seem to matter.
Sometimes it’s to the point where, if I’m walking and try and click a drop in my small circle, by the time the drop actually completes the animation to enlarge so I can open it, it is no longer in the circle.
Only seems to affect loading of the map and performative actions on the map. Darting and battles are barely affected.
I am not getting the purple “loading” circle on the screen - the game just takes forever to respond to anything
I can provide video of this if necessary.
Some days I can spin drops for 10+ minutes without any incident, even if in a car, but sometimes it starts nearly immediately. And as soon as it starts, it gets really bad after about a minute. Sometimes it will “fix” itself if I have enough patience, but most of the time I have to force close and restart the game.
Steps I’ve taken to try and resolve it:
- deleted/reinstalled game
- performed Android OS update
- clear cache/data from game
- disable/enable GPS from phone
- switched from data to wifi and back
- deleted other apps
- force closed all other apps prior to starting JWA to ensure no background app is taking up space
