However, Tower of Fantasy players are reporting that the game has been constantly crashing on PC and mobile (1,2,3,4,5,6).

When you launch the game and enter a server, a loading screen appears but crashes immediately after. This is not an anomaly as it happens repeatedly for many players.

This constant crashing causes players to lose progress in the game and has become quite an annoying issue.

Idk what anyone says Tower of Fantasy is fun! Sure it’s been crashing but the servers are overloaded rn so it’s bound to happen. If you don’t like it you don’t like it. If you do great! Just don’t be an ass about it

I’ve fully reinstalled on 2 different drives, ran as admin, allowed through anti-virus, used a vpn, and I still crash at the same part after launching the game every time. I click launch on the launcher, the game opens and begins loading, the bar at the bottom jumps and freezes at 33% every time then subsequently crashes. It’s likely not hardware or os issues. If anyone has an idea lmk

Many speculate that the potential reason for these crashes could be servers’ inability to cope with the rising number of players.

This is a common issue with many games that are launched with so much fanfare as players all around the world want to play them.

This also doesn’t seem to be a platform-related issue as players both on PC and mobile are currently affected.

Fortunately, Tower of Fantasy developers have admitted that their servers are facing high traffic due to which many players are unable to play the game. However, they did not share an ETA for a fix yet.
