Wizards Unite crashing & freezing after successful traces, losing foundables, spell energy and potion
Harry Potter Wizard Unite is one of the best-augmented reality games for mobile. This game offers distinctive gameplay and brings the magical world of Harry Potter to life with the help of augmented reality. Niantic developed the game, and it was released on June 21.
The game is approaching its first month, and it has already received more than 5 million downloads on the Google Play store. However, the game has not received a similar response like Pokemon Go, but it is growing slowly and steadily.
It is quite early to say how the game will perform in its long run as Niantic has not released many events for the game yet. We have only seen one event called Brilliant event, and it went live on July 4. Niantic has scheduled first-ever Community Day for the game on July 20.
Not many details regarding Community Day have been revealed yet. As soon as any news regarding Community Day pans out, we will update it in our feeds. The game is still new, and the Harry Potter Wizards Unite Team is doing their best to make the game more enjoyable.
Still, a few bugs have plagued the game, such as an issue with Portkeys, purchase issue with Diagon Alley, and a GPS location error. Now a new bug is troubling the Wizards Unite players. Many players have reported on Reddit that their game is crashing after successful traces.
At the official Harry Potter Wizards Unite Reddit forum, a user u//Beckandrews raised the issue of the game crashing while doing traces and returning foundables.
According to him, sometimes when he successfully cast a trace, the game says foundable has been returned, but then the screen and game freezes. To make the game work again, he has to close and restart the game again.
After restarting the game, he finds that he didn’t get the foundable that he had returned successfully. On this Reddit thread, many players have come up with the same issue.
The most frustrating part of this is that players are also losing their spell energy and potion. Also, they are not getting the foundable they are returning after a successful trace.
Any Harry Potter Wizards Unite official has not yet addressed the issue. We are keeping a close watch on this issue, as and when any fix for this arrives, we will update this column.
