2nd game problems Tue, 23 November 2010 00:56
Well my first game vs alive opponent went well, but game # 2 was another matter Rolling Eyes

My opponent took forever to play a card and then 3 turns in he stated he had to leave - sigh Razz

I guess I have my first player to place on my ignore list, although I did not see how to do that on the screen.

Then a robot player "took over" for him, but did not play a card. I waited a while, then ditched the game myself.

Not only that, it seems that 1 solo game and two vs live players (one of which never was completed) cost me 13 ingots of my gold. Hmmm, seems like it should have cost 4.

I did note that when I played TFH, the deck was reshuffled but TFH card was not included in the reshuffle as it was still in the discard pile.

Also, in my first solo game, I played the Close Assault card and ordered the only unit I could with that card. But a screen prompt indicated I could order more units. I clicked done, but somehow skipped the battle phase and my ordered unit never did get to fire.

This type of thing happened in my first live game with the Firefight card. I ordered the only 3 units I could, but again the screen indicated I could order more units. I clicked on one more even though it could not fire and then hit done. This seemed to satisfy the prompt.

Same thing here too. My opponent was disconnected or left the game (don't know because he never came back online) and a bot took over and never made the next move. I finally quit the match but still lost the GI's.

The issue of the robot failing to move when he takes over is a known problem to DOW, but you should still file a bugreport.

Their Finest Hour - The card you see and called the discard pile is actually just showing the last card played. TFH is actually in the deck when it reshuffles.
This was noted during closed beta and they are working on it. Either they are going to label it better, explain it in the manual or something like that.
But it does look strange.

Close Assault/Firefight - Units should be able to battle even though you just ordered 1 or 2.
On the Close Assault card issue you should file a bug report and include the logfile.
(No offense meant now, but are you sure you didn't double click the done button and thereby also skipped the battle phase?)

Hi Stig.

Thank you for the explaination on these issues.

As to me double clicking - it is possible - not sure if i did that or not. .....and no offense taken Smile I realize you are just trying to help.

I am still a bit frosted that my opponent who did not have time for 2 games of our scenario (I asked him about this before we began to play) dragged his feet in our game. He took nearly 10 mins before he played a card in each of his 3 turns before he said he had to leave.

Bottom line is I wasted my time and ingots playing this guy Mad

Well got in another complete game today. then game # 2 - another person who "had to leave" with theg ame 1/3 over (and he invited me to play.

The bot took over, played one card. I then got in part of a turn and then the program froze up on me.

These so called "players" who drop out of games Rolling Eyes

The second name on my no play list.
