Beginning with update 32.0, Summoners across The Contest noticed fight timing felt different. We identified that a change to our game engine was the source of these problems.
With the help and patience of our players over the past several months, we have developed a fix for the input issues, which is currently in beta testing. On May 12, 2022, we pushed a change to the game that enabled the fix for the input issues for all players.
The intention is for you to see major improvements in the timing of the battle. This should affect battle mechanics such as blocking, parry, dexterity, special attack activation, and basic attacks.
Since this is a beta for the fix, there may be unforeseen issues with how the fix affects your gameplay. Because of this, we want feedback from our players about what they are seeing now that the fix is enabled. This will help us identify any issues and if any changes are needed to ensure the fix is functioning perfectly.
To gather this information, we have created a submission form for problems encountered during combat with the input issues beta fix enabled. The form is found here:
If you are experiencing problems with fight timing now that the fix for the input issues beta is enabled, please fill out the form above so that we can gather your report. We massively appreciate all of our players' help in resolving this issue!
