Yesterday I wrote about the issue some players are having where their fighters are fighting anymore, for more information the original post is here.
We are confident we have found the issue and it is fixed in the latest update, which is currently out on Android and waiting for review with Apple.
In the mean time here is a work around to fix this situation and prevent it from happening again:
- If your fighters have fights booked in the past then release them. This can be checked using the Booked Fights button on the main screen. Please note, if you’d rather not release any fighters, the update will make these fight take place in the current month.
- When you press End Month in April, August, and December a video ad should play. If, however, after pressing next on the “And now a word from our sponsors” screen the ad doesn’t play and instead of going to the normal month end summary screens it goes back to the main screen then enter and exit one of the other screens, for example the gym screen by pressing the Gym button. This will cause the main screen to refresh and the Fight Time button to correctly appear if there is a fight booked for the current month.
This work around will not be required if you have the latest update, which as stated above is out on Android and waiting for review for iOS.
We’ve been made aware of an issue in MMA Manager Free where fighters stop taking their fights.
This is not something we’ve seen in the premium version or in testing, we would not release the game knowing about an issue like this.
We believe we have a fix for this and have published an update on Android, and submitted it Apple for review. Review times for the App Store means it will be at least next weekend before the update is released, we will talk to Apple to try and speed this up.
It appears part of the cause is the interstitial ads before the fights, so we have removed them.
We are extremely sorry if your game has been affected by this issue, it is not the experience we wish to provide for players. We thank you for your patience.
Just a quick post to tell you that version 1.3 of MMA Manager is out now on both iOS & Android. The two big additions for 1.3 are achievements and interim titles.
Players on both platforms have asked us for achievements so we’ve added them. Achievements are linked to the existing objectives, so now when you complete an objective you’ll get both the in-game monetary reward and an achievement. Don’t worry if you’ve already completed some or all of the objectives, the first time you play version 1.3 signed into Game Center/Google Play the appropriate achievements will be awarded.
Scott dropped us an email to say that champions who gain their title by another fighter vacating it (retiring, moving league, etc) aren’t showing up in the Fight Team history. He was right, I missed that when hooking this up. So as well as fixing it I took the opportunity to add the concept of interim titles to the game, something anyone who’s followed MMA for any amount of time will be familiar with. So now when a title is vacated the new champion is interim champ until they defend the belt for the first time.
That’s all for now. Hopefully we’ll be back soon to tell you about one of the big things we’ve been working on.
