I just cant take the bugs anymore. Im tired of grinding on this game for a week straight, being in the top few places in a pvp tournament, and then hours before it ends I either cant get into the tournament like in the Captain America tourney, or in the last few hours of the Juggernaut tourney he no longer does the +200% he had been getting all week. I even raised levels of my dead characters to refill their health which has worked since the game came out and after they were still dead. It is extremely frustrating playing this game many hours a day and being in the top ranks and then finish out of the top 100 due to the game bugging out. In the lightning rounds today enemy teams are getting crazy amounts of element tiles for no reason. Its hard to beat someone when they use thorned rose every turn and get to use every characters power up each turn. Please fix this game, I love playing it and even spent some $ which I never do on freemium games. Sorry, rant over.

    At the end of the Captain America Tourney, the servers got overloaded and went down due to underestimated load. We had even reinforced the servers before that and it still got knocked out. Unfortunate.
    The Juggernaut issue was a definite unintended change. Everyone was equally affected however.
    The change to leveling reviving characters was fully intended and called out in Patch Notes. Health Packs regen and maximums were also increased at the same time.
    Elemental tiles are raised because characters have buffed crit modifiers, just as any other buff. This is how the game has always done buffs and is nothing new. You're seeing it more here because the Lightning Round enemies also tend to have higher crits anyway, so it's amplified.

    Edit: I completely get that you don't like bugs. Bugs suck. We'd love for the game to be bug free. But not all of what you are calling out as bugs or similar actually are bugs. Sometimes you may disagree with a design choice as well, and that's fine as well. I'd just like you to know that while we'll stomp out bugs where we see them, not all changes are "things that need to be fixed".

    Rare bug. Restart the app (kill it entirely as appropriate for your device).

    He was still, but it didn't affect tile matching anymore. This was a bug that the devs seem to have decided to leave as a feature, although they've said the UI needs to be cleaned up regarding this. I have mixed feelings on it myself.
    I even raised levels of my dead characters to refill their health which has worked since the game came out and after they were still dead.

    This was a change to the game. It was documented here (before it happened) and in the App Stores in the release notes (when it happened). I suspect you didn't notice that you now get health packs back 3x faster than you used to, did you?
    In the lightning rounds today enemy teams are getting crazy amounts of element tiles for no reason.

    Not for no reason. The boosted characters have very high environment tile numbers, combined with high crit numbers can lead to insane numbers of environmental tiles or insane amounts of damage.

    There's a lot to complain about, like the devs raising the costs of covers when the community was asking for them to be lowered, and the utterly broken matchmaking and somewhat broken scoring system. But the game really isn't particularly buggy.
