Im getting a lot of softlocks when my gem conversions destroy supports. The board freezes and the gems just hang there and i have to quit.

Thanks!

    Ok. Not sure what is causing the lock ups but it definately has to do with supports getting matched. Im having to quit matches in Fate is rarely fair due to this issue.

    Just had what seems to be exactly the same issue, see attached screenshots (ironically, in my case it was a Gold token - which is supposed to be destroyed) . The game softlocks, I can only open the "Game Paused" menu. Even had the loop prevention timer appear and expire.
    Our Discord has reports from several players of this happening with different supports.

    I was able to reproduce it. 

    As you can see, it was a simple conversion that destroyed four djinn wishes. 

    I'll try to recreate it again and make a video. 
    Will provide more information when I get them.

    Here is a video of the bug.

    The bug is easily reproducible. 

    I used the following deck to make it trigger earlier.

    I've noticed this happening when I have a support with 2 shields that takes damage twice in the same instance (not from a cascade). The damage should only reduce the shield by 1, but the support is actually destroyed and the game locks. Hope this helps.

    Example: Support is on a green gem with 2 shields remaining; Hour of Promise changes gems to green; there's a 3 match with the support as well as a 4/5 gem burst hitting the support.

    Last week in TotP:



    And just now in TotP another freeze:

    But earlier in the same turn I also destroyed 2 pests and it did not freeze:

    On both of the freezes you can see one pest triggers and then the next match in the cascade triggers. Maybe the freezes are because it doesn't finish processing all the triggers before the next match in the cascade occurs and it knows there was something else to do but since the new cascade happened the 'effect stack' has been wiped out and it is essentially an index out of bounds kind of error.

    It's been investigated for over two months and the bug itself is much older. Safe to say support chose to ignore us, they are not even trying to fix gamebreaking issues these days.

    It's as critical of an issue as there is out there. I also wish it had higher priority. There are so many cards we cannot risk playing right now because of this.
