PvP arenas are constantly crashing !
I have tried several times to start a PvP battle but the timer kicks in goes down to 20 seconds then suddenly goes all the way back up to 30 seconds again.
I start PvP arena battle a second time same thing happens but this time
it times out at 18 seconds then jumps back up to 30 seconds yet again.
Over and over again it happens and the count is now up to 11 PvP arena battle failures in a row !.
I have rebooted the game several times trying to correct this problem but it is still happening, what is even more frustrating is that i really need the PvP battles to add towards my daily task allotment of 1 x D.B.I. or i miss out on getting any rewards from the daily tasks when it rolls over to the new day tomorrow.
Not happy, not happy at all this really need to be fixed as quickly as possible thanks.



I’m sorry for the trouble this is causing, JoeVolcano27. Could you please reach out to our team at support+forums@ludia.com with your support key? They’ll be able to take a closer look and assist you directly.


You might want to double check your tablet has the correct day/time set. The “ends in 19135 days” above your tournaments button is acting like your clock is set to a zero value (the year 1970, which is the beginning of epoch time for computers)

The 19135 timer bug happens all the time to get rid of it all i do is reboot the game and it disappears that particular bug is a glitch that goes a fair way back into the game first appearing some time around february or january of 2018 - 2019 so i am quite used to that bug by now.
Ludias techies have tried time and again to eliminate it completely but like a person hearing an echo in an empty room it keeps coming back.

But my main problem is with the annoying PvP battle arena bug that is causing it to crash a lot lately !!

Ya, the only workaround to PVP glitch I’ve found is to kill the app immediately and hope you get back in the match after restart and before you lose.

In a follow up from the previous report posted above the problem with the PvP battles crashing has suddenly increased in the last week with the battle bug crashing a lot more while battling in the various arena,s.
Can something please be done about this as it makes doing any PvP battle an absolute nightmare and a total waste of time even attempting doing any of them at all ( PvP battles ).

I notice getting connection issue flashing up but hasn’t killed the matches for me. I’m just wondering if maybe it’s the other end because sitting and spinning drops and darting, I don’t get the connection thing. It’s just during PvP and I’m connected to my home wifi.

They need a time-out counter and after 2 or 3 time-outs in a row, you get a counter for an AI match that will go all the way through if there is no one to play. I often start with the AI counter and then it goes to the regular counter where it sometimes counts all the way down and times out. I would have rather just had the AI counter go all the way and fight the AI as I just want some takedowns and an incubator.

I played PVP now and the game was terribly lag and delayed movement that i chose was delayed the graphic was delayed when the clock countdown to 0 nothing happened even i chose my move already and after delayed of the graphic the game coming for my next turn with only 3 seconds left and sometimes not any seconds left AND THIS CAUSED MY LOSE 4 MATCHES IN A ROW already

A lot of new updated
A lot of new bugs
A lot more exclusive creatures

So sad about how this game developed

This has been happening to both me and my friend. Both of our games are randomly stopping mid-battle. Sometimes, about 2 seconds after the counter reaches 0, it performs the move. At other times, we’re forced to restart.

This is mainly in the tournament arenas though.


same here, something is definitely wrong

I have timed out of 14 pvp battles in a row over the last hour. Previously, I was able to start one, but it crashed out halfway through. The 30s timer starts, resets, disappears, restarts, etc. Multiple restarts and resets with no progress. I would submit a report, but I am still waiting on a response to my support requests submitted yesterday and Wednesday, so I’m not interested in continuing to build that queue.

Edit: 21 pvp battles, 3 tournament battles.


Specifically, by time out I mean I waited 70-90s and then crashed it out because I couldn’t get into one and it was clearly stuck or that I got in and timed out.

What’s happening with all these bugs ?

I still have the same issue, whenever I want to battle the game crashes after the 30 seconds countdown, I already tried to reinstall the game but the bug still there. Also when are you guys going to add a function that prevents the game to lock the screen? damn even basic games have that feature.

Ya, definitely something wrong connecting matches, keep getting timeouts :rage::cry:

Awful, alliances can’t get DBIs done!!!

I can’t even start a match, the game freezes on the screen that says “Searching for opponent”. I can’t do my dbi and today I even have it as a daily task :pensive:

and here we go with another game breaking glitch, first we had the drops and now we can’t use the arena or tourney’s, this has to go down in the history books for worst roll outs. I mean I guess its not as bad as being locked out for a week
