In an effort to help dispel some common points of confusion, we in Player Support have assembled a number of unclear subjects or bugs with simple workarounds that we address on a regular basis. The hope is that by proactively spreading this information, we can help you avoid these inconveniences altogether while we work to make improvements on our end.
When you start an account, it does not automatically link to your email address (unless you setup your account using Facebook), meaning that should you become logged out, you may not be able to log back in. If it appears that you have lost your progress in the game, this means that you are not logged into your original account and have received a new one. This may also mean that when switching to a new device, you may not be able to log into your original account. To prevent this, you should Create an Account or Link to an existing Account as soon as possible (if you are not linked to an Account, you will still see a Daily Mission in game to do so). Once this is done, you will be able to log into your account manually after clearing the tutorial, should you become logged out for any reason.

When any type of currency is added manually or via mass in-game message, your new balance of that currency may not display immediately. If you receive an amount of Chronitons or other currency in an in-game message, you should restart your game in order to force your balance to update.
Battle Arena Ranks:
Players can become unranked in any of the Battle Arena Divisions if they do not play a battle in that Division for 14 days or more. This is an intentional process to remove inactive players from the ranks, however we are seeking clearer in-game indication of this. Players also become unranked by completing the one-time "Create or Link an Account" Daily Mission if they have participated in the Battle Arena before doing so; this is a known issue.
Currently the UI representation for Charge Phases (the mechanic by which certain Ship Abilities improve if they are not activated immediately) is not visible. These abilities are still present, however Players cannot currently see how far the Charge Phases have progressed before activating them. This is a known issue.
If you are trying to Dismiss a Crew Member but find the Dismissal button greyed out, this means your Crew is occupied on either a Shuttle Mission or Ship Battle Station. In addition to checking your active Shuttle Missions and your Battle Arena Ships in all three Divisions, you will also need to check that they are not on your PvE Ship, which you can only do by selecting a Ship Battle from an Episode and entering the preparation screen. If you check all of these areas and do not find the Crew member, yet they still appear as occupied, try setting them to one of the PvE stations, playing a battle, and then removing them.

Time Portal Results:
You will sometimes see an "empty" chest icon appear among your rewards when you pull from the Time Portal. This is a simple display issue, and tapping and holding the chest will show you what reward you received in that slot. This is a known issue.
Event Offers with Time Portal Packs:
Some Event-themed Offers include a number of free Time Portal pulls. These pulls do not need to be used immediately, however they must be used before the associated Event pack swaps out of the Time Portal, at which point those pulls will become inaccessible. We are seeking clearer in-game indication of this.
Items in Overflow:
Your Captain's Inventory has a limit of 1000 unique Items. It is sometimes possible for you to accumulate Items past this point, in which case you may observe a variety of issues when attempting to build, replicate, or equip Items, often citing "Item in Overflow" as the cause. In this scenario, removing Items to reduce your unique Item count down to under 1000 should resolve this issue. This is a known issue, and should you need any assistance in removing Items, please contact support for assistance.
Freezing on Message of the Day:
Some players have experienced an issue where they are unable to close out the Message of the Day, blocking them from accessing the rest of the game. This issue appears to be linked predominantly to the LGE Nexus 5X, and some players have reported that changing the resolution settings on their device may clear up this issue, as well as logging in from another device. This issue has also been known to clear up on its own after a few days, but may return at a later time.
If you have encountered any of the above issues, we hope this guide has been helpful! This is of course not a complete list of known issues in the game, and should you encounter any other issues or need additional help, please do feel free to contact us at Disruptor Beam Support, where we will do everything we can to get it sorted out.
