Mortal Kombat released a massive mobile update commemorating its 30th anniversary on October 6, filled with MK nostalgia and new exciting content.

Mortal Kombat Mobile crashing

However, many Mortal Kombat Mobile players are facing crashing or freezing issues in Faction Wars game mode (1,2,3,4,5,6).

Mortal Kombat Mobile

Faction Wars is a Mortal Kombat Mobile PvP game mode in which you combat AI versions of a real player’s team. In this mode, players compete on a regular basis to climb their Faction’s leaderboard charts and earn amazing rewards.

However, players have reported that the game constantly restarts after each round, or that it completely crashes or freezes in between matches, resulting in a team loss in Faction Wars mode.

This problem currently stops Mortal Kombat Mobile players from climbing the leaderboard and hence reaching for better rewards.

My game keeps crashing every time when it finds an opponent in Faction Wars(Quick Play and Survival).
Can you please help me with this issue? I legit cannot play Faction Wars At all currently

Mostly happy with the update. Cool new fighters and features. Please fix Faction Wars (after the battles, it isn’t showing the correct stats). The game is crashing far more than normal. Please please please fix the over saturated colors. It’s too dark now. Thanks!

Issue acknowledged

Fortunately, WB Games support has confirmed that the team has been made aware of the situation and is now working on a patch. However, no ETA for a fix was provided.
