Confirmed Bugs in 5.5.0


Below are the bugs that we've already confirmed in version 5.5.0. We're currently working on fixes for these, thanks for your patience!

 

1. In some cases when evolving/ascending, hypermaxed stats may change from rainbow to gold even if the monster is hypermaxed.

*This does not affect the stats themselves

 

2. After pulling the tutorial hatcher, hatchers that use orbs do not display correctly (confirmed on iOS.)

*This can be fixed in some cases by exiting out of the game and restarting it.
