Since the update: I have android galaxy s9 and adventure sync doesn't work past 0.2 km for my portkeys regardless of the app being open or closed.
My brilliant event bonus tasks have disappeared and my fragment counts have reset, even though the brilliant event is still running.
This update has pretty much broken the game for me and so many others. It's brutal. Can't even begin to express how frustrated I am with the kilometers not registering and not being able to open portkeys or get the daily distance task, especially with the 1920 event coming up. These updates that aren't foolproof should not be released during events and should be fixed before any more events happen. The quality control for updates is seriously lacking.
I'm having the same issue as many other players on Android (I'm on 11). Yesterday my distance stopped tracking. It doesn't matter if I have the app actively open on my screen or not. It doesn't track. This means I can't complete the daily tasks and I can't open portkeys. Please fix this!!
my AS works but my iPhone XR has all the same issues listed here. Freezing when opening gifts, Constance Messi g with getting to my port keys but the most ANNOYING one is during battle using a potion glitches. I pop a potion and it doesn’t do the bubble up and put me back in the fight. I have to double click the screen to get back into the wizard of challenge and it has a error message reeling me I already have a potion in use. This is time consuming when you are down to the wire. Plus it’s just annoying.
Strange thing is, sync isn't working when I walk but does when I drive. It thinks I'm walking if under 14 mph.
I'm an iPhone user. AS not working, portkey tutorial comes up every time, the screen to use potions during duels/challenges freezes, and opening gifts causes the game to crash.
Adventure sync stopped working after the December 2020 update (7.5 months ago) for me (Android 8). The "Known Issues" list above says Android 10 & 11, but when are you going to fix Adventure Sync for Android 8 & 9 users?
@hpwulola POI Sync is broken, no poi sync of new pois in WU for 10 days and counting.
I thought I had fixed by AS problem, but alas it was not to be. I play on Android but also have an iPhone. It works with iPhone.
I'm also seeing the place image issue. Every time I collect the final fragment and the Place Image button appears, the game becomes jittery. 100% reproducible. Only fixed after restart.
I was able to complete the Brilliant Event and Bonus tasks, but have opened very few potkeys compared to usual condition. I realize AS has been broken for many since December. First time for me. I believe this is related to Niantic trying to close a cheat used by some players that records distance without actually walking, as well as one I've read about that spoofs GPS location. Seems like another case where a few ruin it for the many.
At least I'm able to get distance recorded while walking with the game open and using Android game dock screen lock feature does work. Just need to click on something on the map every once in awhile to actually register the distance.
I'm also annoyed by the multiple potions feature. I can see where it may be helpful in Adversary challenges when you want to pop a Healing and Ex or Wit and Ex, or if you have a need to pop a dawdle and ex at the same time, but these are rare conditions. Yes, it's just an additional screen tap, but this new game play behavior is disruptive.
My game is not tracking any milage with or without adventure sync. Help please asap. This should be a high priority . Until fixed please dont roll out more events people cant complete.
Adventure Sync was working for me before this update (Android 11, Pixel 4). Post-update, neither Adventure Sync nor distance tracking are working. I walked 2-3 miles with the game open and saw no progress on my portkey.
@KDCman: Unfortunately, this is not a bug, it is supposed to be a feature that allows you to take multiple potions without tapping on the "potions" button twice. ...totally neglecting that one rarely use more than one potion at a time and you only start saving taps from 3 potions onwards which never happens, really...
In short: A new feature that is supposed to improve gameplay but in reality actually makes it worse...
Ugh. Constant Constance is cause for much consternation. And is annoying af.
I’m also experiencing the app crash whenever I open a spell energy gift of any kind.
the new add potions screen is still hard to get used to while trying to fight. I keep forgetting I have to make the screen go away. Maybe add an X out just as a mindless reminder? I think I’m so used to it just disappearing by itself, I forget I have to do it. Although, I am glad you can use multiple potions. That’s helpful.
Collecting spell gifts freezes up the game
Since the update on my Android, I keep getting the notification dot flashing on my phone as if there is something that is happening (finishing potion, portkey, etc.) but there is nothing to see.
At first, I though it was a problem with my phone but it stops when I close HPWU.
I'm on a LG G5 in case it is important.
With new updates, the game will sporadically crash when activating a potion in an adversary chain and force you to restart. This has happened twice and when it restarts if the adversary chain is still there , you have to start the chain all over again. I've already lost a few potions and spell energy because of this bug.
Adventure sync not working…. Worked yesterday. Nothing changed on my iphone or iPad. Mowed my lawn & NO km recognized… & I have a huge yard. Lol
The game is largely unplayable at the moment. When moving around the game freezes, then races forward to my location, only to freeze again. I can't grab traces because it's either frozen or warning me that I need to be a passenger. Could be adventure sync related but maybe not. I feel like this whole event needs a redo!
I'm on android 10 and my adventure sync was (mostly) fine before this update. Every now and then it wouldn't count as it should but that's how it's always been so I don't expect it to be 100% perfect.
However, after this update it isn't working at all and I'm struggling to get even the 0.25km to count for the daily tasks!
I agree with others in that the 1920s rollout with portkeys being the key element definitely shouldn't go ahead until this issue is fixed. It's such a massive part of the game, and a huge mistake to still do it.
Take the time to fix it properly so everyone can play and enjoy the new feature equally.
My game won't count my steps at all. Whether it's open, closed with adventure sync or anything. I haven't been able to complete my daily tasks, or clear out my port keys prior to the 1920s event. I have an Android, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I've tried turning off adventure sync and just walking with the game open in the background, and no matter what I try the game will not measure my distance.
Please escalate on the spell energy gift crash the app issue. We will be sending spell energy gifts to friends that are currently in lockdown. Thanks
Can we at least get the ports from the previous event deleted out since we are unable to use them and the big 1920 event is coming up
Today for the first time since the update, my portmanteaus opened and I got the mileage to get my 0.25 km in order to get my full ten coins. I opened all ten and picked up ten new ones, however, now they won't open. The only difference is instead of the irritating monolog about how portkeys work, I get an error stating "I've lost connection to wifi ..."
Please fix this!!
I think there needs to be at least some compensation for the broken adventure sync. I had to use extra silver keys to open the portkeys. Which I normally wouldn't need to with normal adventure sync.
Or just simply postpone/suspend/extend the event until the bugs are fixed.
I have been enjoying the game until this bug.
1920’s Wizarding World Convergence Event: Complete 1920’s Portmanteaus to unlock new Encounters to complete new pages!
Some users will see an additional Daily Task consisting of a sponsored video. This task will be optional and not prevent collection of the Daily Task completion reward.
Wait they have a new even with new portkeys to unlock yet they still haven't fixed the adventure sync issues? Shouldn't they postpone it until it's fully fixed?
I hate to sound like a Karen, but can I talk to someone who can actually make a decision here? LOL 😂
I get kicked out any time I use a potion on adversaries unless I am just starting the fight, ie both of us are with full life.
With adventure sync not working on my device, I can't clear out my portmanteaus for the portmanteau event this weekend. Is it possible they would delay the event or somehow open the Portmanteaus based on distance traveled during this event? I walked over 5 miles and only opened one portmanteau
When in Wizarding challenges, at least once a day this week, using a single potion and existing that screen freezes game. Must exit. Does not return to the challenge, losin all progress, potioan & runestones used in challenge. Just happened again but now in Adversary Chain when nearly completed.
