I had in the past several times the situation, when my browser seems to be stuck. I could not collect a draft nor could i aquire some territories. The feeling was, like the game is not longer accepting mouse-clicks.
Solution was all the time to restart my browser.

Now I discovered the reason:
When the artifact window is open and you have more than 3 lines of artifacts, the window is virtually bigger and hides all the territories below of the artifact window.
Therefore the territories below the artifact window are not longer seeing the mouseclicks, as the are captured from the -invisible- artifact card.
You can proof the situation by clicking below the artifact window and moving the mouse with left button pressed: Voila: one artifact card is appearing like magic outside the artifact window.

Solution up to now: Close the artifact window or move it elsewhere.

This also explains, why the problem sometimes disappear and reappears later again. When the number of lines goes to three or lower becuase of upgrades, the problem is gone, once you have more artifacts, the problem grows with the number of artifacts below line 3.

Might be a bummer for everyone with more artifacts than the dialog can hold, but I reported that months ago. Sadly, it's a "low priority" bug (to quote Fizzer). I have my artifacts dialog open almost all the time and it is moved pretty much as far as possible to the bottom right of the browser window (unless the map features some important territories/bonuses there). That way I cannot run into that bug (unless you scroll down the list of artifacts because then the same effect can happen above the dialog that usually can be seen below the dialog). For now, that is the safest option to not be affected, I'd say.

I've come across this ... similarly, took me a while to figure out it was related to the Artifact window. I never correlated that size of the window, though I've been at 5-6+ rows forever, until recently b/c of consolidation of artifacts, I'm down to 2-3 rows, and unsurprisingly now that I read this the issue is gone.

I just end up moving the artifact window out of the way so I can click below it. It isn't a huge deal for me, so really does seem to be Low Priority.

Is there some reason you can't just move it out of the way?

Is this bug everywhere?

App/browser only? What browser/app in that case?

Browser only so far as I know (on mobile, the artifact window takes up pretty much the entire screen, so I have to either close it or move it out of the way anyhow to do anything on the map itself). I've seen it on Chrome for sure, but I think but am not positive also Firefox, Vivaldi, Brave (the last 2 also being Chromium so not surprising) & Edge.

Also Opera, tested as well under Linux: same problem.

I live on the Firefox side of life. So, Firefox (or at least some forks) are in here as well.

But I guess this affects all browsers regardless of the name or developing team. It's not something a browser developer might be doing wrong, but something that Fizzer specified the wrong way. Something along the lines of drawing order and css cropping, I'd assume.

Seems like it. But for everyone encountering it, is it a major issue? For me, it's an annoyance but easy to work around.

The trade-in, swap, or resale of excess Artifacts. Put'em to good use.

Any thoughts?

Just gonna go hijack this thread, huh? LOL

Sure, all for it, especially now in light of SAsc ... but not gonna happen. The intent is to make us upgrade them or throw them away, so the recommendation is at odds with the latest update which clearly attempts to force people to simply get rid (upgrade or toss) all but 2 artifacts (3 if you choose that reward).

Seems wasteful. Makes me NOT want to spend coins/money, if oblivion is their destination.

100% agree, the game seems at odds with itself for selling things like +30% AP for 50 coins or artifacts for 20/60/180/540/1620/4860 coins and both are subject to erasure at a later stage in the game. I bought some coins a couple times, and spent a bunch on the +30% AP and on some artifacts ... and regret it now b/c it's wasted $. I trusted that any money I put into the game wouldn't be invalidated by a future update, but that's pretty much what happened here. In hindsight, there was no need to get extra AP, b/c it's just gonna get wiped anyhow, and no need to get extra artifacts, b/c I'm just gonna have to throw those excess ones away. I was building towards a future of having all Advancements unlocked and all Artifacts I like upgraded to Epic or higher, but that's not gonna happen now. So makes me think twice about putting money into the game going forward.

@krinid: not wrong, I mostly agree, but for example the 30% AP-boost still serves a purpose, you can super-ascend faster. Otherwise the same argument would be true if here wasn't a super-ascension: You don't have to spend the coins, just play more levels. That hasn't changed witht he latest update.

But back to the original topic: I just today checked the Android app and there you can click/tap on anything below the artifact dialog without encountering this bug. So, it's clearly browser specific. I can't say anything about the membership-standalone-app, this could be affected or not based on whether it is derived from the browser code or the mobile app code. Either way, the bug isn't really severe but usually (!) you try to fix bugs before introducing new potentially faulty pieces of code (new features). Otherwise, you won't ever be done fixing anything.

Not really. It's not a matter of "buying the additional AP enabled me to SAsc quicker", it's a matter of "buying additional AP got me way past the requirements for SAsc and now I have to throw it all away". I could SAsc any time I like, and I have significantly more AP than I need in order to be able to do a SAsc. Had I known that the next step in the game would be throwing away AP, I wouldn't have spent that money on additional AP. There's now literally 0 motivation to have spent those coins on additional AP, b/c all it did was get me significantly past the requirement for the next phase which I now have to discard. Like running 100km in a marathon (the finish line is at 42km, so you ran 58km past the finish line), you still only get credit for finish the race, not additional distance you put in.

Have you SAsc'd yet, btw?

For anyone trying to chain super ascensions, this change practically necessitates the 150 coin reset though. Otherwise you need to either:

a) spend 1000 AP and only 1000 AP on Level 1 advancements which is slow and inefficient

b) Go way past 134k AP on each super ascension only to lose it again

Don't think there's a way to combine SAsc's in any way quickly enough to consider it "chaining", but essentially you're right, this new change is just the latest way to invalidate what you have achieved so far, nerf benefits, impede progress, motivate use of coins. It's really just the invalidate part that bugs me, I'm fine with everything else., including the coin usage, it's always been P2W, but with the invalidation, sometimes despite appearing to be P2W, it was just a diversion for temporary gain, essentially just Pay-to-Pay. LOL

Okay, I haven't considered, that you were looking at the AP boost from the perspective that you already have way more than 134k AP. I just wanted to say, that AFTER you super-ascended, you can still spend coins to boost your APs in order to make the next super-ascension happen quicker. If you already are beyond 100k in phase 4, investing more coins doesn't make sense (before super-ascending, if you plan to eventually super-ascend), that's absolutely right!

And no, I'm far from super-ascending.

I agree, once you SAsc, if you choose to spend 50 for 30% AP, it's a decision you're making knowing the details, and that's fine. I personally won't as it just seems too transient to me. I prefer to pay for things that last. Same reason I don't buy powers, they're just 1 quick use and gone before you know it.

What's keeping you from SAsc'ing? Surely you have enough AP to do so? Digging to upgrade artifacts to avoid losing them?

the only reason why they have the 400% AP!
