Quick Play Broken? Wed, 25 September 2013 15:27
Is it just me or has quick play not worked for days?

Wouldn't know, I haven't tried quickplay for almost two weeks.

Quick play is, and has been, up and running.

It usually takes me 10-20 minutes to get a game up and running in "quick play" when I am attempting to host a game. If I'm just joining it's faster.

I wish I knew what was taking so long? Are there just not any players out looking for games yet because the app is still relatively new?

I guess it could be something to do with the matching algorithm. I know nothing about what those settings/parameters are. There's just no information. It doesn't say how many games are going, or how many players are "in the lobby". Just number of players and which expansions. Maybe it's looking to seat you with players of your own caliber and there's just not a lot of them ranked as high as you are yet? I'm just guessing.

That's a great idea to show somewhere how many players/games are online. Seems like a no-brainer so that people know how popular the game is and know why quick play is taking longer at a certain time.

Of course it's kind of confusing with asynchronous vs live games. But I think quick games needs some work, like being able to play a ranked game with turn timers and auto-matched opponents.

I've been trying to play quickplay for a week now and every time the rabbit just keeps running and running and running and .... I've even let it sit there for an hour while I did something else and still no game. I mean solo is fun, but against real people is better. Does it have something to do with the IOS 7 update?

Don't forget that you can play Online with people in your Buddy list. Here is a thread where people have offered to be on any buddy list:

http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=28023&start=0

You can add these volunteers to your Buddy list and then start games with them all the way up to 5 players! It's a great way of playing and doesn't even require you to sit through the whole thing at one time. Very Happy

Exact same situation here. Don't think I've been able to play quick play since the IOS 7 update but not sure if that's the issue.

As described in this other thread (http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=28085&start=0) there is a problem starting Quick Play games for some users.

The symptom is that you would press the Play button and nothing would happen - no waiting screen.

It's definitively a server-side problem. We are working hard to understand the issue, it's tricky. We had to collect data from a few users, which took time.

We'll keep you posted. Thanks for your patience.

We completed the correcting actions. Please give it a try and tell us if it works - or not.

Thanks in advance,

Yann
