View Full Version : Additional Android Problems

07-02-2013, 01:07 PM
I am currently reading data set mw_20130627_6. I have had nothing but problems since this data set was received. My inventory now shows that I only have 9 different types of air units, all of which are cash and valor units, and that I have no infantry, ground, sea units or worst of all any of the indestructible units that I have collected through events and gold in well over a year of playing. My profile now says that I only have 2,688 attack and 9,483 defense, but when I attack I still have an average attack well of 200K, but the average is far less than after the completion of Poland, which in theory should have made me stronger. While the Poland event was going on when I tried to check all of the rewards for the event they all appeared blank. I had no option for the 2 LE set and cannot do the current LTQ as every time I try to attack the Hapless Citizen in mission 1 of Scramble for the Capital it instantly force closes and I have tried over 50 times. The game constantly does not load properly or force closes soon after opening and even makes unintended gold purchases during some of the force closes and freeze ups. Currently about one third of our Android users in our faction are experiencing similar problems. Another two of our members in our faction on Android are now seeing either Chinese or Japanese language on their profile screen. The remainder of our Android faction is experiencing "normal" Modern War on Android which is just the normal 5 to 10 force closes per day. The interesting thing, is the group of our Android players that currently can play the game as "normal" have a mix of newer and older versions of Android, some with even less available memory than those with the issues. So this makes it hard for us to tell if a certain version of Android or a memory issue can be at play. Has anyone else experienced issues similar to any of these and if so do they know any way to fix the issue as we have a few that are about to sell their bases off to make one last donation to the faction rather than to continue to wait on support.

Yes, same exact problems,forces closer and no ltq showing up at all. I am getting close to selling of the base and unstalling. This game is getting worse bye every day.

I have the same version and I am experiencing none of the problems you are describing. As I have said previously there are so many versions of Android and so many different devices running it that its impossible to expect it to behave like IOS. There must be a 1000 tablets and phones with pure android, modified android, forked android that it is impossible to predict what will happen. Blaming Gree is not fair because they or anyone do not have the resources to check each version on each device. I am sure they do their best, fixing one problem which in turn may cause another and I sympathize with you. Its not like a PC game with Windows or Apple OS or a game console where you know exactly what to expect. There is such a proliferation of Android devices and more coming out daily that getting a game as complex as MW to work perfectly on all of them is impossible.

But why do they ignor us and fix apple and ios within hours?

07-02-2013, 01:54 PM
I agree with you thundarr that it is no easy task and thank you for your sympathy. But there are many other complex apps that work perfectly fine with the cross platform approach. But blaming or chastising Gree was not my intention. My only goal is to get the game working properly or at the very least in a playable fashion. I was perfectly fine with the 5 to 10 crashes per day. I know of many more players than not that are experiencing more and more problems every day on Android after the update right before the FvF Tournaments began. I am not saying that I know anywhere near the majority of Android players and in fact that is nearly impossible, I am just saying that the vast majority of my small sample size is experiencing problems that are becoming worse by the day. Many of them have already sold off or are contemplating selling off their base. I am trying to hang in there, but trying to see if anyone else has experienced similar problems and have been able to circumnavigate them. I was told in the past by support not to delete and re-install the app as that could only magnify the problems. On another note, out of our faction members, the ones experiencing the most issues happen to have the larger bases and larger inventories. Could there be some sort of memory leak occurring like there was in the past with this game? If so do you think selling off all non-essential buildings could help for the short term?

In the last two weeks on two separate occasions I have seen my stats drop by 2/3 and noticed that the majority of my gold units were gone! Closing/opening app does nothing and the only thing that worked was to uninstall and reinstall the app, and DO download any new data set that is sent as they usually contain a bug fix. This happened tonight and I managed to restore everything, just make sure your game is stored externally so you don't lose everything. If you have an SD card it most likely is stored there by default. Good luck.

Funktacular.........that is exactly what happened to me. Twice over the past couple of weeks. Support told me to no longer delete and reinstall so I am waiting to hear back from them again this time around. I did receive about half of my inventory back after the second of the two data sets came through yesterday, but all of my higher end gold units are still missing.

Philly982, I'm on android and I assume everyone else on this thread is. Try attacking someone, it might be a display issue albeit an extremely serious one. I think mine were ok judging from the battlescreen, but then again it is so hard to tell because my attack dips by more than 30% frequently, but that's another story...

I noticed during Poland that my toon with 80K attack would dip to 58k not uncommonly. I didn't want to risk a loss, so I didn't attack anyone over 55k. The variation was incredible! I never see jumps like that on my iOS character.

there is a new version mw_20130702_5 got the download last night

07-03-2013, 10:10 AM
I received the new version last night, and got about half of my inventory back. I think Funktacular is right in that it is a serious display error. Like Funktacular said, I can attack with well over 200k, but the swings vary so much it is hard to tell if I even received any of my Poland rewards. Additionally, I cannot purchase crates and none of the LE sets are showing for me to be able to purchase. It almost seems like even though I received the new data packet in good order, that I am not actually receiving the full amount of data. For instance, I get a pop up for the LE building rewards, but the picture is blank and the title says "Abandoned Building". I am on an older version 2 of Android and thought that may be why I am all of a sudden having issues, but a faction mate on version 4 of Android (not sure exactly which one though) is having the exact same issue.

I keep a separate excel spreadsheet with all my gold units listed by type and how many of each so I was able to pinpoint which onese were missing of my infantry. I noticed the missing units were ones I recently picked up, mainly LE sets I bought, which made me furious. Going forward I recommend you keep track of your units so you have detailed info to provide Gree. Again, good luck and it may come down just a uninstall/reinstall. Hope this gets resolved.

Same here. Stats considerably drop when attacking someone will fluctuate 30k-50k. How does this happen? I have 190k attack and it will go down to 135k when attacking someone with 140k defense. I also can not get the new tasks.

07-03-2013, 12:41 PM
Thanks for your support Funktacular. I do keep an Excel Spreadsheet and most of the ones missing are more recent gold indestructible units that I have received, except for a few recent ones. Everyone of my top prize boss units, end LTQ units, and 10th crate rewards are among my over 400 gold units that have gone A.W.O.L.

I have most of the same issues with stats, forum clearing etc
Now I have a new one, when GREE allow me to win fight and I win a loot unit or concrete, I don't get issued with them.

Mrskll good luck with that data set as to you will lose allies by the hundreds I had over 500 allies and it dropped me down to 52, with greeds explanation as they didnt delete any real players although all mine was real players added when I started playing a year ago and went thru rivals comments copying ally numbers and adding them one by one which as many know thats played this game that long to ok a very long time to do. Its just another bug greed installs so they can fix it causing even more problems as it seems they are doing to try and get you spend as much money as they can.
