  Turn indicator is making me want to delete the game Wed, 08 April 2020 22:08
Love the game, but this is honestly the most annoying thing I've ever dealt with in a game app. Just let me play. My friends and I are honestly not so stupid that we can't figure out when our turn is.

They have to get rid of this or my family is just deleting this game. I can only think the designers of this game don’t play this game themselves? How could you not see how incredibly awful this change is???

Seriously this is annoying. Remove this ASAP, I bought the game along with two family members and nobody wants to play anymore!!!

Or provide an option to turn it off!

I played 2 games with this new annoying “feature” and I gave up.
New to the game, paid more because of recent price increase probably related to COVID. Waste of money Embarassed

Turn indicator seems like an April Fools Joke. Please remove it!

I agree. I thought I’d post this comment before ditching this game. I’ve enjoyed playing for many years. But this really is so annoying I can’t do it any more. So sad. It WAS my all time favourite game. But no more.

An improvement to the turn indicator was warranted but this is a cruel joke. I will probably stop using it until it is changed. The solution shouldn't take over the game. It just needs to be a bit less subtle than tha prior turn indicator

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate. It helps us make the game better.

We need that banner for new players, who sometimes miss the start of their turn. With your feedback, we changed the turn banner in order to make it less painful to the experienced players.

We have changed the banner, so that it is less annoying. But still useful for the new players. So, the banner is still displayed when the turn begins. If you change the Speed option in the Game settings, and
- set it to mid-speed, the banner will appear and go away very quickly.
- set the Speed option to the maximum speed, the banner will just not show up.

This will be released as soon as possible, as soon as you guys validate this solution. You can try it right now: join the Beta test program
https://account.asmodee.net/betatests

Please take a moment and try the new banner, and let us know if it works for you.
Thanks a lot.

I don’t know how we ever learned to play this game without a turn indicator. We must be super smart.

Ok, I desserve it.
On the other hand, you guys are experts. You find that Ticket to Ride is a simple game. That the bots are too trivial. But some of the new players find it hard to understand, at first. Or that find the bots too strong. YMMV

We made a mistake. The banner should not be too intrusive. We made it so you can pick cards, banner or not. You don't have to wait for the banner to go away. You can play right away. That is not enough. We got it. We have a version in Beta test where it does not even show up if you have set the animations speed to the highest speed. Does that work for you guys ?

To Eric B.
I don’t understand your logic at all. If you installed the most annoying turn indicator in the world the help new players, and even THEY find it horribly intrusive, how is the solution (to speed up the game) going to help them? Now they can see when their turn is, but the game goes too fast or them to play!!

I used to be a programmer and I’m marveling at the bizarre logic of a) a scorched earth approach to a minor problem and b) your blatant disregard for 100% of your players (PAYING players) who hate the new feature ( you should have backed that change out within 24 hours of the first complaints), and c) the unbelievably bizarre decision to make the game harder to play for the people you were trying to help in the first place. Just put a bright gold ring around the avatar whose turn it is. Good god, it’s not rocket science! If a new player takes too long, they lose a turn. They’ll learn pretty quick to pay attention. Just ditch the whole banner experiment. It is a colossal fail.

Banner for each is the most annoying change ever made. I’ve played almost 2000 games over years and I agree with the topic subject, it makes me want to delete what was my favorite game.

While you can select cards while the banner is displayed, the damn thing also blocks your view of some cards! So I want to wait and see what my choices are. The fact technically you can tap on a card is pointless to me.

I’m glad you’ve heard this is a major snafu and are working on a fix. But having to set the animation up to the highest to fix it is not intuitive.

Here’s an idea. Remove the damn banner.

We know when it’s our turn. It’s just a pain. If you feel so invested in it you must have it, turn it off as default and turn it on only at lowest animation. Wink

I do appreciate your hearing it’s bad and making a fix. But I don’t understand why you’d want to change a game that’s been loved for years in such an intrusive way? It’s not like it needs any changes. More content and maps are nice. But don’t mess with the core app.

It begins to feel like developers needing job security more than designers trying to make a good game.

You’re right. I play board games with the kids at an elementary school. I’m constantly telling kids when it’s their turn, to keep the game moving, as many kids aren’t paying attention. Sometimes there’s a kid who will say to me “do you have to do that?!!” THAT’S what I’m shouting at the screen now!

I’ve set it at the highest speed and it’s still happening. I check it every day. Please get rid of it.
And I don’t know why it’s there anyway. If I don’t do anything on my turn then the game waits, it’s not as though I lose my turn.

Full agree, there are ways to indicate turn without it being very very intrusive and obstructionist to gameplay. Thank you for thinking of new players! But I think they'll also find this onerous after their first few games.

Thanks to everyone speaking up! I've been following this thread since the update and feel very vindicated whenever i check in Cool

OR make display banner a distinct option rather than based on speed of play. Set it to off for existing players but default it to on for any new players

We’ve had GUI interfaces since the 90’s. It shouldn’t be hard to not have your entire fan base hate you because of a mandated feature you’ve suddenly introduced with no real control.

Eric B. Dump the beta test and remove that banner now, please! I can’t do beta test from my iPad. Think banner should at most be option No matter the speed, and would prefer it be gone altogether. I love this game and this really is ruining it. Not willing to wait days to leave...

Like the gold band idea a lot.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the adaptation. It works for me now. I have always used the highest speed setting (didn't even realise before, that there are three now). I already noticed the removal yesterday.

It works for me like this.

Like many others I’ve come to this forum for the first time to complain about the turn indicator. I’ve played this game online for years and I HATE this new feature. At least give us a button to turn it off. I always play in high speed and I know I can click through it but it’s annoying and confusing.

@hettystk, @Peachacid, @taxistarfish

If you are part of th Beta test, you can change the Speed settings, and that will either make the banner appear shortly or even not appear at all if you've set the maximum speed.
If you do not want to join the Beta test program, then wait a few more days and the banner will be gone.

Your designers have never been good at making it simple. Every year there is an update that adds more unnecessary graphics. I wish I could buy the game from you and simplify all of it. Building a UX for the lowest common denominator never makes sense in development. If someone does not know it’s their turn than they should not be playing in the first place. This isn’t chess. Please go back to your UI from 3 years ago ... cleaner and easier to play.

What version do you see at the bottom right of the main screen, on Steam ?
It should say 2.7.4-6564
On that version, there is no turn banner anymore

I’m on an iPad with Apple and the version without the turn indicator will not happen. So I have restored, refreshed, etc, etc, but that blasted turn indicator is still there and it’s driving me nuts!

Hi Eric,

I'm still on 2.7.2.6524 on Steam. I'm not in the Steam beta program, only on Android. Maybe I should join the Steam Beta as well...

I would like to say that currently it's very hard to understand when it's your turn - I hate it. It should show more clear when it's my turn.
