I meant to post this a couple of days ago, so I’m posting it now. We received a 55 MB update yesterday, so I put my newest comments regarding that update in italics.
Since the last update, there are barely any spawns anywhere I go, NOT EVEN COMMONS! The commons are like rare and epic spawn rate to where you only very rarely see them, and I’m not getting any epics lately. I do get some rares, but not like I used to. They also ALWAYS spawn outside the circle.
Since the 55 MB update yesterday, the common spawns are a little bit better, but it’s still not close to what it used to be and what it should be for commons. I was out for 2.5 hours earlier getting Irritators at parks and never saw a single epic. It’s been at least 10 days since I’ve seen one. I’m pretty sure this problem started after the update before this last 55 MB update.
I have also noticed that I’m not getting radius spawns anymore. I drive for hours with my son and we barely encounter anything at all, whether stationary spawns or spontaneous radius spawns. We live in Jacksonville, Florida which is a huge city and it used to be densely populated with dinosaurs
I have received a very few radius spawns since the latest 55 MB update, but again, it’s just not close to what it used to be before, so it’s very disappointing.
In addition, I’ve noticed that MANY times a spawn will despawn when I get close to it and that rarely to never happened before. Also, if there are two common spawns near each other, if you catch one, the other will despawn.
I have not noticed this problem since the 55 MB update. Maybe, and hopefully, it’s fixed!
There are so many other problems with this latest update as well, such as GPS lagging extremely badly because the "I’m a Passenger Message isn’t being served in a timely manner from their server, so you are frozen in place until you get the message. Then once you tap I’m a Passenger, it takes it a minute to recover and then it isn’t long before it freezes again because it’s not able to serve the message in a timely manner. It’s ridiculous! I know for a fact it’s a problem with their server and not my phone or my phone service. I pay for extremely fast mobile and get 6 GB per month, so I’m not being throttled. Plus, there is the same problem on my other phone and it extremely apparent that it’s the I’m a Passenger message that is the problem.
This problem comes and goes, so I never know if it will be a problem when I go out hunting. Restarting the phone, clearing the JWA game cache, clearing the cache partition, being on WiFi or mobile, none of that effects or fixes the problem and combined with what I said above, I’m fairly certain it’s their server that causes the issue and that it’s not serving the message in a timely manner which causes everything to hold until it does and is acknowledged, then the server is still slow so it takes a minute for it to receive the acknowledgment and allow the game to resume. They really need to work on this. Maybe add a flag so we can report in game problems like this so they are aware and can fix it.
If you are having any of these same problems or other problems, please add your voice there and maybe they will listen.
