What Types of Screenshots Are Useful
Here are the general rules you should follow when taking a screenshot to illustrate your case.
What to Do:
- Clearly illustrate the reported issue: If you are reporting issues with your game like "the display of an icon is off" or "my characters are falling through the floor,” make sure that your screenshot contains an example of these issues. This will help us report the bug to our developers and help them reproduce the issue.
- Make sure that the description in your case also contains as much information as possible, including but not limited to:
- Date and time that the issue occurred
- Type and amount of items or character(s) affected
- Steps you took to get to the issue that occurred
It is important to establish when a screenshot is actually useful at illustrating the bug you are trying to report. Make sure that the screenshot:
- Contains an example of the bug that you are reporting
- Complements the text describing the issue
- Is fully described in the text. For example: “in the attached screenshot you can see what I get every time I tap on the button.”
Reports of violations against our Terms of Service should include the following info:
- Player/alliance name
- Action against our Terms of Service
- Dates and times, if possible
What Not to Do:
Try to avoid screenshots that will only cause confusion. Here are some examples:
- A screenshot of your inventory showing that it does NOT contain a reported item
- A screenshot related to another player (if the report is not linked to a Terms of Service violation)
- Any screenshot taken outside of the official Kabam, iOS or Android, application
- An image that is not related to the issue
