Game not loading on Android

Thought this was already known but no post about it yet.

Android phone. Game fails to load, I get a start screen and. "Loading" at the bottom but the % count never starts. Force quit and re start app usually fixes it though sometimes takes a couple tries.

From conversation with other users they see same thing, sometimes screen stays black.

    I have also been having this issue for the past couple of weeks. Also using Android.

    Same. At least force quitting and restarting the app fixes it.

    I have come to believe that the problem only happens when there is a data push that need to happen. As in an offer of some kind, a reward from a PvE/PvP battle etc.

    It is an annoyingly intermittent problem. But this morning I got the black screen (force quit), then the start screen but not loading (force quit) then finally it loaded.

    As of 12/6/2022 game will not load on my Samsung? First real issue I've had in eight years of playing this game.

    Same thing for me. Black screen, then crashes. Force stop, clear cache, restarted device, and uninstalled and reinstalled, nothing works.

    I can't access the game at all either, black screen followed by a forced exit. I'm not sure if this is related to the new update, but please look into this as soon as you can...

    Here is their response from Discord

    Yes! We have this on our radar and are currently working on the issue. This issue regards using the android SDK 31 and seems to be affecting Samsung phone users the most. If possible stay on release 265 for the time being and we hope to be pushing an update soon to resolve the issue.
