Sparky has three cards in had. no creatures. 5 islands. Finally unstuck after many minutes (while I was typing this)
It's annoying this is still happening. Sparky just sits there repeating "hmmm." Please stop ignoring people and fix this stupid bot.
Hmmmmmm.... Hmmmmmmm... Hmmmmmmm... Sparky is broke and it feels like getting the same full house on every 7 card draw except in Hmmmm's....
you can't finish a game, it absolutely needs to be corrected!
I think at this point it is quite shameful that you have not resolved the Sparky issue. You know how important goldfishing and testing is to a lot of players. You have received multiple complaints and done nothing about it.
As has been the case for months, now, Sparky will freeze during attack step if the human player has more than 6 or so creatures. The game cannot progress. If Sparky has no creatures, or creatures that can't attack, the game progresses. But that means one has to goldfish very particular decks, and not a vast majority of other archetypes.
Please fix this. I personally buy packs so I can goldfish. I am obviously not incentivised to buy any more.
During the event Sparky, I have done done the first match but at one point, sparky has one card in the hand and is thinking. The game does not continue and Sparky's turn doesn't finish. So the game is blocked. There is no way to play. Here are some images.
Sparky does this all the time now. It was occassional months ago but now Sparky freezes up after a number of turns. Sparky continues to say Hmmm... and does nothing. I'm trying to test out decks but this makes it frustrating.
Games against AI continue to be unplayable due to the game not progressing.
It feels very much it is programmed to do so in order to discourage folks to play against him as it happens on all platforms. Also, given the same lack of ergonomy and common sense is present in both PC and iOS versions meaning they reused the same code I doubt they did develop different engines for playing against either Sparky or other players. Versus other players when they stall/timeout one could activate abilities of permanents, play instants etc. but against Sparky one could only concede or wait for its timeout which btw seems longer than vs other players. This feels very much to me these recent freezes are the intended behavior. The freezes seem to happen regardless of the number of creatures on the battlefield.
Was doing the sparky event (I hadn't noticed it until the new advisory on the front page alerted me) and this happened. Sparky just sitting there spamming 'hmmm' She did it for 30 minutes. I made pancakes while she did so.
I was forced to kneel to Sparky. SPARKY. An AI who will randomly target her own creatures with removal. I must carry te burden of this shame for the rest of my years. No amount of compensation will ever clean the stain on my soul....

I'm getting this issue regardless of what deck I use or how many cards Sparky has.
I also frequently encounter the bug which Sparky keeps saying "hmm..." and stops playing.

I sat at my computer for a good 10 minutes waiting for Sparky to move. This has happened a few times but I thought it was only a glitch (stuff happens). But it's happened several other times and usually if I have a massive board state.
Sparky seems to freeze when there are a lot of creatures?
Is it so difficult to fix bugs of Sparky's AI???
At least, please apply time limitation to Sparky's playing.
It is easy for Sparky to play in 10 sec while AI is working correctly.
Sparky is just sitting there and isn't playing cards.
He takes forever to cast spells and doesn't assign blockers.
