    Is puzzle ops un-coupled from the 5* launch now? It seems like that event has been running alongside the 5*s since they don't get their own Welcome to Shield event.

    Was puzzle ops tied to the 5* launch before?  Wasn't just at the start of a season?

    When the characters swap, whenever the guy that makes the match changes, there's a pause. It looks like when there's no swap, there's no pause. This is terribly annoying and slows the game down even more. Please fix this. I'm on steam.

    P.S. Please add the option to buy as many boosts at a time as you want.

    Yes, I'm having that issue too. (Also on Steam)

    May have been coincidence, but it seemed to me like the additional event that ran alongside 5* releases

    Yes same here, Steam player and there is a large delay between matches that really slows the game down after this update today.  Please fix!

    Half-mutant 5*

    Shadow King possesses people, making them half mutants.

    Cable is a mutant and half cyborg.

    The offspring of mutant/human couples might be considered half-mutants.

    I'm here to say the same.  After each match, it takes an extra moment to register the hit, even more-so if it downs someone.  Everything takes longer now.  

    ...and i was getting pretty proud if my clear times recently.  Sigh.

    The match delays are very bad and ruin the flow of the game.

    I’m guessing it’s intentional? Since it being reported on all platforms.

    Please fix / change it back.

    Y'all playing with no animations on? I don't feel like anything is different on iOS and i've never had mine turned off. I'm curious if an artificial delay may have been introduced or something.

    Yes animations are off here.

    It’s just strange they would add it on character switches from basic matches and not when powers are fired or triggered. If there is no delay with animations on it may just be faster to leave them on.

    edit** Just tested with animations on, and it’s still there

    I'm an "animations always on" person and believe that it's slower now based on my muscle memory and learned reaction time. That is, I noticed the new slowness as I've gone to make a match, but the game is still processing and I have to swipe the pair a few more times.

    I’m on iOS and don’t see a difference however I’ve never paid attention to processing speed before since I’m slow anyway . It does sound like a welcome improvement though .
