Most of the games are played on the web version and not in the app. The number is nearly the same, but the community is split.


Okay, before I continue, you're saying the problem with the lack of opponents now isn't that they're no longer logging in, it's that they changed the online gaming experience to remove most of the players from my environment.

While definitely a different conclusion, the same result - the changes in the App destroyed the online experience.

However:
A) I'm talking about the ONLINE game. The App game doesn't actually tell you how many games are being played.
B) WHY split the communities? It has created a situation where you sit for 20 / 30 minutes at a time waiting for an opponent online, but I paid a heckuva lot more for my online access than I did for my App purchases.




The splitting of the community is a big problem, I agree with you. The communities are split, because the new steam version has some features that the web version doesnt have, so they dont wotk together any more.
Unluckily nearly all of the 1500+ player (except you and me Razz ) are playing on the web version.
But the web version is not supported any more and all the players have to move to Steam some time.


Looks like the squeaky wheel - gets destroyed.

Well, Web version no longer works, period.

Thanks for completely destroying an addiction after 12 years of blissful playing. I don't blame the DoW guys for selling out. They deserve the fruits of their labor.

You can forget me ever buying a DoW game again in the future though. Talk about destruction. Wow.

And now, this evening, I try web/java and it does not work. It did work for me earlier today.

It seems that whatever was giving lirex and vigulisam problems is finding its way to everyone at some point here.

Ah well. Such is life.

I've played some games in steam last days. Anyone knows where I can see the last play of the opponent?

On his name box, you can see the last 2 cards picked blind or open or if he layed a track.
You have now to follow closely to check if he played a loco.

Well as far as Web version goes. We have confirmation from DOW that the Java version is not going away anytime soon.

But on the other hand, it has been announced that all browsers are now cutting support for Web browser plugins (Java,Silverlight, flash, and etc.) Oracle is cutting the life of Java. In return they will be introducing a Java Websmart that will have to be installed on the computer.

So whether we like it or not our beloved Java version may soon come to an end. Not sure how soon this will happen but it is on the horizon.

So now is a good time to start looking at the Steam/ios/ and android version of the game.

Regarding tournaments, I think we need to run some small tournaments first on Steam before organizing our own tournaments there.
I would be willing to organize an India tournament/League and maybe a Swiss/Asia League or an AAT tournament over there.

I hope we will be able to launch tournaments with Asmodee on the new app if they feel like the app is ready. We (mainly Drake and I at the moment) still have a few things to work out with Jesse from Asmodee.
If the feedback is positive after those tournaments, we could start moving our tournaments to the Steam little by little in 2017.

Give Steam another chance. Days of Wonder has really tried to include our ideas as much as possible during the beta-testing. Communication has been top notch since September. They still have to work on a few features, and there's still a lot to improve but we are getting there. It seems very likely that other maps will be developed in the near future.

I just regret that only a few competitive players participated in the beta-test of the new platform...

I'd like to thank Eric from DoW for his time on the Google Group, for answering all our questions, and for the extra-thought at the end of the test! Thumbs Up

I have steam on both my desktop computer running Vista and my laptop running windows 7. It runs fine on both.

I have not noticed any slow down to my computer, but definitely turn off auto start so it doesn't start up when you turn on your computer.

On the Steam version there currently is no way to switch between TTR accounts (you can on the Ipad). So you can buy the Ipad app and have your whole family play, but with Steam it seems you need to each create an account and buy the game separately.

I think right now the Steam version is the most stable followed by iOS and then Android.

Things to watch out for on the new app.

1) You cannot kick someone out of a game (before it starts). So do not accidentally join a game, or if you create a game set a password or a minimum rank score to weed out the people you don't want to play with. Also add people to your ignore list as needed. Also can directly invite people to a game (I believe through your buddy list).

2) When creating a game, I suggest Multi-Session rather than Single Session so that if your connection goes down or the game crashes you are not replaced by a Bot right away. I usually go with 15 minutes - enough time to reboot my computer if necessary, but short enough that if someone rage-quits or tries to stall it is not too long. As the program becomes more stable I will lower it to 10 mins probably.

3) The timer runs during the fancy animations, so don't set the game length too short or on a slow connection you could time out.

4) When creating a game, you can set yourself as Start player. So for tournament games, one person can open all games and alternate setting themselves as first player and second player. However, when joining a game, you cannot tell who is set as start player til after the game starts. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Is it too much to hope that this security update is going to fix the Java applet? I just had my computer force the upgrade today, and can no longer run the browser version of the game.

...this is probably why the player population has dropped from regularly over a hundred to barely a dozen at a time.

I'm getting "basic: load: class com/daysofwonder/tt/applet/TTApplet.class not found."
I've reloaded java, rebooted my PC and cleared cache. Nothing seems to fix this.
