Glitch, bug or undocumented feature? Tue, 30 November 2010 19:16
Well... after playing many games.

I love it.

need more scenarios!!!! in time I know.

But little things ya notice... are they bugs? or done for a reason???? and do they know about it???? do I send a bug report on something they may already know??? for the 223rd time... this week... but only the 30th time today.



Airpower, hear the plane, don't hear the booms from the dice?
does the sound cause a drag or glitch? was it turned off for a reason, or simply missed???? we don't know.

Skill level, when you click a name, some have skill levels and some don't??? why? maybe some people just have no skill left?

What happened to the bell??? did someone take out the knocker???

Did notice that if you are in the after action area, you don't see invites. And you don't see them after you come out? Your inviteeee still sees his window. Only notice this due to a friend on his computer in the same room with me.


Guess what we as beta testers need is a list of known bugs that the powers that be are aware of and are working on...

that way we are not sending in the same bug over and over again???

and y'all can edit the list??? add a bug or take off when fixed.

Bell not working---- turned off
plane bombs no explodey sounds--- turned off, causes screen lock, working on.

That kind of thing.

Throw us a bone, or we will keep chewing on the old ones.

Very quickly, as we're beyond swamped right now - not just because of the online game, it's also the seasonal ramp-up for Christmas.

All the bugs that are submitted to us via a bug report form go into a database, where we manage them. Even though we can't fix them all right away, we keep track of them all.

So while we can be quiet for some days, we're working on fixing and improving things continuously nonetheless.

Skill level will only be shown for those who have played at least 20 games, i.e. Established Player. Anyone with less is considered to be in Provisional status. Established and Provisional ranking is tracked separately.

Report them as bugs and don't worry about whether they have already been reported...it doesn't make sense for the DoW crew to spend a long time updating us on what bugs they know about because that's taking them away from actually working on the bugs!!! Rolling Eyes

Like Eric said, the bugs we report (with the Bug Report Form) are put into a data base to be worked on and from what I've seen, they are ranked based on importance. If 50 people report the same bug, that's not a bad thing...it just means that it's a bug that shows up often...so report everything you think is a bug and DoW can determine which ones still need work. They should not have to give us updates until a new version of the beta comes out! They always let us know what they fixed in each update, so look for a list there.
