Master - Version 43 Changes - Not a bug

Creating a master topic to merge miscellaneous threads about bug reports that aren’t actually bug reports but simply changes made as part of version 43. Actual bugs related to v43 should remain their own thread to be addressed. This is also an easy way to copy and paste specific parts of the release notes (I wish we could quote parts of the version release notes).

Common issues I forsee:

  • Inari now does damage
  • Thoth summoned a minion for multiple hereos
  • Ninja Tower does not have 50 floors
  • Cleric mana shield

Ninja tower does not have 50 floors and costs gems to play, BUG :slight_smile: (not a fan but not a bug)

Sorry for my ignorance. Can anyone explain what it is, and what it will serve. Thanks

We don’t know yet. Details have not been announced.


So, I’m not terribly smart about this stuff. Did anybody report that Inari isn’t doing damage? I think I reported to SG, but I’m not sure

it only takes effect when the server is shut down.

Thanks @Ruskin505 for this thread.

So I’ve noticed during raids that after firing tiles that a certain hero on my team can get up to three or four visible hits.
I’ve been playing almost 4 years and I’ve never experienced this in a raid.

Is this just a visual add on?

Has anyone else noticed this today. ?

I updated my game and it shows version 43.0.1 build 1030, but Inari doesn’t have direct damage and neither does Thoth Amun update. Anyone else getting this @Petri ?

Have Inari and Thoth changes gone live yet? I see other people have said the same and I’m just curious if there was anything said about it. I haven’t been able to find a reason they may have not changed or if there was a specific time. Update was finished rolling out so I just assumed it would have happened - but I could have missed something somewhere.

See above

I guess I need an explanation

The update does not apply the moment you update your app. SG waits until “everyone” (not sure of the exact criteria) has updated. Then the update applies changes. That hasn’t happened yet.

It would be nice in the future if we knew this time.

We are planning to force the update on Monday, once we have confirmed that everything is fine with the update and players have had enough time to update. I hope this helps!


It does, a lot actually. Thank you for the information


Thank you for taking the time to give me an explanation, I really appreciate it. In reading your explanation, it actually makes a lot of sense


Thank you! That’s very helpful!

Anecdotally it seems Monday is generally the day changes take effect. Should we use this as a general rule of thumb? Do y’all have an internal process such as “always forceon Mondays”? Or could you publish the intended timeline in the release notes in the future to help clear some confusion please?

Thank you, I guess I did miss this. I just assumed everyone had the update since the V43 notes updated to say they were finished rolling the update out. Didn’t realize they had to do a maintenance break. Thanks again.
