    Mob Wars: LCN v 2.14

    Our latest update features a bunch of bugfixes and performance improvement! Note that as usual these apply to lcn.kanoplay.com/mobile as well.

    GAME
    • Ensured the raid bosses' watches are synchronized properly for Daylight Savings Time. They're so forgetful!
    • If you gain two levels really close together, sometimes you might not have gotten rewards for gaining both. We fixed this and we're very sorry.
    • Installed the missing timer for the daily GP screen.
    • If you don't have enough FP to buy hired mobsters, you should now see an option to buy some FP.
    • Achievements are now collapsible, woo!
    • Made sure you get a confirmation after attacking a raid boss, especially when using the Help button.
    • The boss carousel shouldn't get stuck in the battle view anymore.
    • Purchase confirmations no longer hide the update about you completing a job.
    • Challenges can no longer be "disappeared" by swiping right or left by accident.
    • Turf Wars should jump to the top of the screen now, instead of hiding at the top sometimes.
    • Healing on a raid will no longer make you unable to click anything afterwards. That was our bad.
    • The Random Attack button will no longer break and give you a blank page if there's nobody available.

    GENERAL
    • Crash prevention (including one at the character selection screen).
    • Animations should be a little snappier now.
    • We optimized some animations to save you some battery life and make sure your phone stays cool. (Less sweaty palms.)
    • The chat now tries again if it can't connect.
    • Back button neatly closes popup windows when switching screens.
    • Tuned up our grammar on the GP help page.
    • Should be easier to tap on the Stockpile button now.
    • You can now get back to the game if you tap to read an external document, instead of being stuck.
    • Fixed some problems with windows showing up in front of or behind each other.

    Running into issues we haven't fixed yet? Drop us a line here or at support.kanoapps.com. You can also do this via the apps; click on “More” on the bottom right, then “Support” when the menu opens.

    Mob Wars: LCN iOS v 2.14.2

    Work continues on the iOS app for Mob Wars: LCN! Thanks to all of our players who have given us feedback on the app to help us improve the experience.

    Here are the changes you can look for in the newest version of the game:

    GAME

    • If Facebook has trouble connecting, you'll now see a message about that instead of a blank page. Much nicer.
    • Similarly, if the app is having trouble connecting to our game servers it'll also tell you and let you try to log in again.
    • New starter packs and FP bundles are now available!
    • Fixed a frustrating issue where if you switched to a guest account on Kano Play you'd sometimes get a server error.
    • The game should no longer freeze periodically when you refill your war tokens or heal people using FP.
    • If you log in to Kano Play but then switch to Facebook and close the FB login window, you can now press the "close" button and it'll actually work and let you try again.
    • Cleaned up some weird artifact on the Sort By Faction button.
    • We double-checked to make sure we weren't sending notifications in the middle of the night by accident. Keep in mind these use your phone's clock, so if that's out of whack you might get an update when you'd rather be snoozing.
    • You will now be able to accept boosts from your friends via push notifications on iOS, whereas before the app might load but not grant you the boost properly.

    Please update your app to make sure you’re getting the latest and best version possible. If you do have any issues with the game, let us know either here in the forums or contact us in Support (support.kanoapps.com).

    Mob Wars LCN Android v 2.15

    Our first patch after release to Mob Wars: LCN on Android brings with it compatibility for older versions of the OS, down to 4.2 While performance might not be the best it does work, so install the app and give it a shot if you're one of those rocking an older operating system.

    There is the usual bevy of changes and improvements below, so take a gander.

    GAME
    • Links for sharing from inside the game should now work smoothly on other devices, and will continue to improve!
    • We've added a quick access menu, so you can go between Jobs, Fighting, Bosses, and Home.
    • There's now some more info in the home page buttons so you can see your progress more clearly.
    • The app should now open properly from links outside the game, like raid boss invites from desktop.
    GENERAL
    • Solved a problem where if you pressed the back button on your phone during the tutorial, you could get stuck.
    • Fixed some errors where the chat would freak out trying to connect to the server while it was updating or connecting.
    • The app used to sometimes give you errors when certain cleanup tasks couldn't get a good connection. These are fixed automatically later on, so we turned the warnings off.
    • The app will no longer continue to play music and load if you go to the home screen right after opening it.
    • Boosts will now correctly show when your next one is available, and how much of your max you'll get!
    • If you do the tutorial as a guest, you should no longer see a blank page when you're supposed to be able to buy land.
    • Adrenaline boosts will now work properly on mobile.
    • The purple pop-up explaining how to use FP will now only show up if you are eligible to use an energy boost.
    • The Battle Arena banner will no longer show up if you're too low level to participate. You'll get there soon, don't worry!
    • We patched an error where a certain kind of purchase could get stuck and not complete.
    • Fixed a problem where our system had trouble automatically spinning up additional servers if we scheduled two things at the same time.
    • Should now run on operating systems as far back as Android 4.2. A little slow, but it works.
    Please make sure to keep your app up to date to get the best possible experience. If you do happen to run into any issues, please let us know either here in the forums or in Support.

    Mob Wars LCN iOS Update v 2.15

    Much like the Android app last week, the iOS is now getting its update to the latest version. A lot of the fixes will be similar, but obviously this patch won't have older Android OS compatibility in this update because it's just not needed.

    We're still working on syncing updates, but for the foreseeable future the two versions will have separate announcements. We'll do our best to call our version specific changes where we need to so you're in the know about your preferred OS.

    GAME

    -Links for sharing from inside the game should now work smoothly on other devices, and will continue to improve!
    -We've added a quick access menu, so you can go between Jobs, Fights, Bosses, and Home.
    -There's now some more info in the home page buttons so you can see your progress more clearly.
    -The app should now open properly from links outside the game, like raid boss invites from desktop.

    GENERAL

    -Fixed some errors where the chat would freak out trying to connect to the server while it was updating or connecting.

    -Values over 1000 should now have commas, i.e. "1,000,000"

    -The gift wishlist screen should load much faster now.
    -Values below 10,000 will no longer be abbreviated, it made them kinda hard to understand.
    -After visiting the create a guild page, if you leave the screen you won't get stuck and have to go to the home page before it works.
    -Cleaned up an issue where you tried to view a faction from the leaderboard and a player's profile would show up instead.
    -Stopped the adventure list from refreshing immediately when you load the page after an action, making for quicker adventuring.
    -Cleaned up our calendar doors so they have nice crisp edges.
    -Tapping the current location no longer makes it say it's locked.
    -Shareable links should no longer break when you paste them into a web browser, even though they were clickable before.
