Did you submit this to Zendesk? If so, what is your ticket #?
No. Looking for community help first.

The above screenshot does not demonstrate the issue. Here are some videos that I sent to Zendesk several months ago. It seems to have started with the Japan World Update.

I would highly recommend sending a report if you’re seeing the issue as well. When it comes to cosmetic bugs that are not game-breaking, they rely on the amount of unique reports in order to prioritise them.

Yep my screenshot was very rushed. Your videos perfectly reflect the issue. I will report to Zendesk when possible. Thanks for your contribution to the topic!
