I have experienced lots of disconnects when playing battles in tournaments. The disconnections happen randomly when in battle. Most of the time the disconnections happen when the opponent is deciding what to do or it is about to be my turn to decide what to do. Most of the time when I get disconnected, I check my internet connection but is it still there. What is causing the disconnections from battles? Will switching to cellular data solve this issue?
It’s a server connection issue as far as i know. The game is needy and servers aren’t great. So anytime the internet connection speed drops a bit it has trouble reconnecting.
That’s because the game AI is dependent on server connection to make moves so if the connection is interrupted for some reason it can’t make move and the timer keeps counting down while it tries to reconnect. As i mentioned before the servers are far from ideal and fail to reconnect more often than not . So if the connection is not restored in a certain time frame the game crashes .
This is the case when there’s less time remaining for the opponent than the time the game is allowed to stay open without server connection. So as soon as the timer hits 0 the game crashes as there’s some form of coding that doesn’t allow the bots to lose by time.
Btw when you lose on time and the timer hits 0 on your turn, you don’t lose, it just registers whatever points of action you have already put in.
But on the opponents side its the opposite, it crashes the game like you said.
