The only way to access them (edit: on iOS) is to click the place where the tab would be as you dismiss another UI element. So (1) click on the “events” tab to bring up the events menu. (2) Click where the “events” tab would be to dismiss the events menu. (3) Notice the word next to the icon, which has never been visible before now!
Yep. No Android notifications here, either. Only ones I have on are Pet Rescue and Tribute, but I’m getting nothing since the update. Note that notifications are off on iPad and PC, which is where I actually play – I only use Android for the notifications, and to collect tribute when I’m out.
To add insult to injury, game version 4.3.5 did not fix the missing tags for Revenge battles/Rival thing.
Often when I re-entered the PvP screen, then I see that tag. I guess I’ll have to wait for 4.4 or 4.5 or 5.0.
I also wanted to add that I too am using Android (v. 8.1.0) and have not gotten notifications since the new update. I have confirmed with some guildmates as well that use Android. Do the devs know? @Saltypatra@Cyrup@Ozball
Thank you for your reply on both the Android Alert and Rival/Revenge issues.
I’m afraid there are two reasons I do not normally check the “Known Issues List”:
I don’t know how to find it, and do not remember any obvious links to it during the bug submission process.
Over the last decade, I have submitted in excess of 250 bug reports across at least three games (perhaps as many as 50 for Gems of War). This is the very first time that a bug I have submitted was already in the Known Issues List.
Nonetheless, I will try to remember that it exists, in future.
In the meantime, I would strongly recommend that you remove the “Win 3 Revenge Battles” quest (and any others that are similar) from the potential list of Daily Quests, until the bug is fixed. It should be easy to do as part of a content update.
After messing around for a while, I found a workaround. To fix you have to mess around clicking on casual, stats, defenders and it will randomly work as normal. It used to work just fine before. Moving in and out of PVP does not fix it.
It may still be possible, but you have to click through two levels of menu, with icons at opposite extremes of the screen. I don’t understand this kind of UI design.
Anyway, try clicking the top-right cog to open the battle info screen, then click the top-left cog to get to settings. If adjusting volume doesn’t work at that point (eg: slider won’t move or gets ignored until after battle ends), I suggest posting a separate bug report.
I guess you are on PC? I forgot to say that I am on Xbox. Sorry. When I select in battle the option menu, it now only show the mana masteries, gold, soul earned…and only possible option to select is to retreat the battle.
