Dice bug or getting cheated by AI? Try the standard dice, stack and stack 5 and I don't think the dice rolling changed at all. At the end of the games, the dice rolling all follows the same distribution. Fix that godamnit. And I also agree with the other reviews, the AI dice rolling is so biased. So are their ridiculous chances of sweeping all victory points, or all knights for the same AI player. Have come across some AI players (normal difficulty) with 4 victory points or getting 6 knight cards. It's no better than casino cheating I say!
I like it a lot I agree with others (I played hundreds of times) that once you start winning the dice rolling changes against. The dice rolling should never be used as a difficulty option, there are other factors that can be used. The game used to consume a lot of memory and battery and heat up but it's fixed now.
AI is Awful The look of the game is great. And No Crash issues for me. ...but the AI in this game is....bias. Honestly 12's, 3,s, 11's get rolled at unbelievably high rates in favor of the AI. If you want to win, build next to the AI that way you have a chance. Update July: Game still biased towards AI update dec: still awful AI one star
I played all night. Fun game, great support! Really fun game and great way to learn the rules. Almost as fun as playing with friends in real life :) Edit 1 - Having issues connecting to online game play. I have not been able to register, add a password or receive an email for confirmation or password update. Frustrating, any ideas from Catan support? I'll be happy to return the review to 5 stars for some good customer support :) Edit 2 - customer support helped me out quickly. Everything is working fine.
Addictive with purchase issues Once you get to grips with the idea of the game it soon became addictive. To unlock the campaign it asks you to purchase an expansion pack. Having enjoyed the custom games for a few hours I thought it was worth the punt. Having purchased one of the packs the campaign mode is still locked. Would be 5 stars if not for this issue
Was 4 stars, then I downloaded the latest update. I used to play the online version on my PC, but they discontinued the product keys for that version for some reason. So, I waited for 2 years while they created this version. I downloaded it as soon as I discovered it was finished and have enjoyed many many hours of entertainment since. It does have a few glitches which is why I took off one star.
Catan 4.6.1. includes the following optimizations and bug fixes
- Various performance enhancements and optimizations regarding stability
- Browsing the friends list for multiplayer invitations works again for friends lists with numerous entries, on all devices.
- Fixed a bug that could cause the game to crash or the AI to move ships irregular after the AI obtains a specific treasure.
This ain’t no ordinary maze! Hallways and junctions change with every turn!
