Fire Emblem Heroes: issues with Rematch in Aether Raids

If you’re playing Aether Raids in Fire Emblem Heroes, you may have encountered a rather annoying issue that can prevent you from returning to the game. It occurs when you lose a Rematch, but only under specific conditions. While the error doesn’t completely lock you out of the game, it’s still serious enough that the developers wrote an in-game notice about it.

Of course, the developers are already hard at work on a fix, which will most likely be included in an upcoming Software update. In the mean time, here’s details about the exact steps that causes the issue to pop up:

  1. Place structure Escape Ladder (O) while it is still valid for the season, then go to Defense Results
  2. Replay a defensive battle in which foe destroys your Aether Fountain or Aether Amphorae
  3. Choose Rematch immediately without leaving the Defense Results screen
  4. Lose the battle or select Surrender

If you do that, then you will get an error that will return you from the title screen. And if you select “Resume from bookmark data”, then you will once again be sent back to the title screen. You can always choose to remove the bookmark data, but that will make you lose the Aether spent at Step 3.

To avoid this issue, all you have to do is leave the Defense Results and then re-enter Aether Raids. Select Rematch without Replaying first.

As an apology for this issue, all players (even those not playing Aether Raids) will get 5 Orbs as Special Log-in Bonus at a later date. Make sure to check out the Events and Content Updates page to find out when it goes live!
