[Beta] v [normal] missing out on games, hopefully temporary Tue, 13 May 2014 06:49
At the moment DoW is play testing their new version, and that is great news, what I see of it looks great.

But at the same time I am missing out on games. I am playing in the 2.0 version where some of my SWfriends have "moved on" to the Beta version. So I can't play them. But "going Beta", even if DoW allows me to, wil mean I cannot play my SWbuddies who are still playing the 2.0 version.

I read somewhere you could switch between versions, but only if all of your games are finished or else you would lose those.


This thread is in no way an accusation or a plea to fix this, I would just like to know how the community feels about this.

My thoughts/feelings: I do understand that DoW wants to move forward and feel that involving the community as they do is great. I can also understand that they cannot put everyone on the Beta (some might not even want to try it out and prefer stable play). But I also feel the dividing of the community in two groups that cannot play each other diminishes the playing possibilities.

I hope Dow finishes the new version soon, but on the other hand I do not want them to rush it so it works great.

What do you think? Smile

There are deep technical reasons: the game engine has evolved, with several fixes. Some moves that would be tolerated by version 2.0 could be rejected by version 2.5.

When the game goes final, everyone will be upgraded to 2.5 automatically, so it won't be a problem anymore.

Thanks for your answer Yann Cool

As I said I wasn't expecting/hoping for a fix, just wanted to share.

Keep up the good work! Much appreciated. Smile
