What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened
Expected: when starting, if game says it has XXX Megabyte of assets to download, it just downloads it and then proceed to start.
Actually happens: download counter cycles between 0.00 to several Mb. Between April 30 and May 2 game wasted 1.88Gb of data download but somehow failed to update.
My Settings-‘asset download’ used to be set to ‘as needed’ and every now and again when I start any kind of battle game would download several Mb.
After 1.1 update on 29 April game would often crash on such asset download. Often as in 60% or more. E.g. I couldn’t start second battle of a hunt, tried several times. Couldn’t load some Daily dungeones.
Crash would happen as follows: game tries to download assets but never succseeds ending up with download counter stuck followed by ‘Connection to the server failed’ message.
Next day, 30 April, due to all these failed downloads I was unable to do all my Daily battles.
Then I had ‘bright’ idea to set Settings-‘Asset Downloads’ to ‘download all’.
On restarting, game displayed ‘About to download 579 Mb of data’ and started download.
At first things were bad: game would download several Mb then get stuck, sometimes downlad counter would go BACKWARDS i.e. counter would get to say 20 Mb and then drop pack to 19, 15, 9 etc sometimes it would drop back to 0.00. Sometimes connection to server was lost. After several restarts it managed to download ~150Mb.
Then things got worse.
I tried to start the game umpteenth time, forgot to check on it and went to bed. In the morning I discovered that game spent 1.7 Gb of my mobile data quota yet still has 281.13 Mb of data to download.
On May 1 and early May 2 I tried to start game dozen or more times. It loads several Mb, then counter drops to 0.00, if I let it try more it may load several Mb and drop to 0 again and again untill eventually ‘Connection to server failed’ message appears. On click ‘Restart’ game goes into black screen.
Currently game is unplayable. And I don’t feel like trying any more as by now it wasted 2.59G of my mobile quota
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Every time I start the game
Steps to make it happen again
Just start the game
PS I tried to
- restart the phone
- update Android
- clear PQ3 cache
- using WiFi to download
Doesn’t make any difference.
