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.
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.
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.
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.
I enjoy it a lot The game is fun, but newcomers be aware; players are from all around the world, the time zone differences mean you might be waiting for everyone to commit ( unless you've specifically joined an invitational game where everyone has agreed to play fast). That's part of the territory.
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
* Updated error messages to refer to forum page instead of email@example.com.
* Changed email addresses from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com
* 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.
