Terrible support, terrible server Only diplomacy app, so I still use it. Server for several months crashes near daily causing lost move orders and tracked reliability scores to drop. Moderator more concerned with chatroom ethics than fixing game issues. Sent many concerns about app in forums and direct email several times for past month with no response. Very poorly operated app.
Great idea just needs work From what I've experiened, if I order an army unit to attack a neighbouring opponent's unit (who has ordered to attack mine), my unit stays put despite being ordered to advance and in a 1v1 I have to retreat or disband a unit despite being equally matched to the opponent in the land I didn't want to be in in the first place. Add to that, my anon button doesn't work and finished games haven't disappered from the list of games I'm involved in.
Worked, then completely stopped working For the first few days it was fine. Really fun! Then I would get an error after I did anything on any of my games. I uninstalled it and reinstalled I hoped that it would work. Now the game crashes as son as I pick an account. Looks like I'm "surrendering" in all my 6+ games.
It worked great... until now I was having a good time; I really enjoyed playing this game until for some reason the server went down and I cannot get in. This is a problem because since I have not commited since the last phase, meaning I will lose a game I was winning. The app now crashes everytime I open it, reinstalled it 2-3 times already and it always crashes. I can't believe how such a great game became became a piece of useless garbage that will not even open.
For the most part, ok. Mechanics of convoy confusing at first. Even support could throw beginners. A practice area would be helpful,as would requiring qualification before play. Surprising to me was that in the culture of the site, many players were not into "diplomacy" messaging. In a way it made it easier to find an ally, not have to worry about being stabbed in the back and have straightforward wins
It's really a shame that the servers are as bad as they are. A well-designed app for the greatest board game of all time, I have no problem with controls, rules, or anything else. I think this app should cost as much as $5 to help with server maintenance and to deter the players who really slow down the games. I am in the middle of missing about 6 deadlines as I type this. I've tried deleting and redownloading and can't get back in. The occasional 5 minute shutdowns were one thing but this is rediculous.
* Updated error messages to refer to forum page instead of firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Changed email addresses from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org
* Switched from https to http hoping this will stop the server from dying and Android 6.0 clients from failing.
* Merged the new flags for Austria and Italy submitted by Gregor. Thanks for the help!
* Using new switches to make jarsigner for Java 7 work.
* Fixed the version string in the preferences view.
