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.

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.

OK, we found what was going on with the Web game. In fact, it works fine, there are players playing games right now. However some users still cannot access it because an important Internet provider did not update its Domain Name Servers ("DNS" in tech babble). We opened a support ticket with them.

If you are a technically inclined user, you can temporarily set your personal DNS server settings to the Google servers at 8.8.8.8. Otherwise just wait until they fix their servers, which should happen soon we hope.

Thank you for your patience,

The Days of Wonder team.

That's incredibly helpful, thank you!! It's ordered Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy


just curious but where did you purchase your set from, and how much was it? 'Dragon Talon' appears to be out of service, and the only other one is 'Funagain' but I am not sure how up to date the info is as it mentions, 'On The Way'.

then there's Amazon which is way too much. I heard the game is fun but would like to play with just the wife and heard the Nordic set was the best for 2 player, but can't seem to find it anywhere at a reasonable price.

thanks!

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.

Re:Steam vs. Web discussion Thread Thu, 11 February 2016 03:31
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

Re:Steam vs. Web discussion Thread Thu, 11 February 2016 03:50
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.

I can add my 5 coins about changing accounts on iPad.
I need to change my password on DoW website. Then iPad let me relogin with another account. Now I told about not updated iPad app.
In the new app it fixed and works good. But I need do it on the old app to play Java lobby. That's why I play my wife's account with Java opponents.

I absolutely prefer new platform!
I vote for kill Java at all Smile

I'm facing another problem: when I create a game with invitation form, in theory I could set the starter but I'm seeing that whatever I select between player 1 or player 2 it's always the other player that start.

I should check if it's the same creating a private game with pssw. I'll do.

You can see how many locos your opponent played. Just click on his name and on the track symbol then.

I had the same problem : sometimes when start was for 2d player selecting 1st player's start doesn't work. (Bug is reported to DOW's development team.).
Waiting for debug, just select random start, and then 1st player's start, and it will be ok.

Actually we have a couple of very cool expansion items in the mix, just have to see if anything will work for the new release schedule. Asomdee is a big organization and has some very powerful games, so it may take a little time to determine if we can get any support for the Memoir '44 game. We will have to wait now just a little while.

We are still having a great time with the game.
We still believe that there are many and much more opportunities for expansions and fun. But it may be a little time before, and I am sorry, before we will see the next expansion.

Richard Borg



That's great to hear! I hope an Italian and a proper French army (i.e. non-grey and including artillery and tank pieces) are among them!

Personally I'd like a Polish army too, as well as more breakthrough scenarios.

BTW, aren''t there still about three card numbers missing in all the expansions to date (I'm referring to the terrain and unit cards etc.)

Je confirme ma lamentable déroute d'hier soir Sad

Je connaissais pas encore la bonne fessée, ben çà y est !!!

Par rapport aux résultats, mon adversaire prend le pont avec les alliés donc 1 objectif pour lui et non 0.
Au retour, je prend le pont avec les alliés aussi même si je perds encore 8/5.

Les dés n'étaient vraiment pas avec moi hier soir, c'est dommage qu'il y ai un bug sur le replay mais au milieu de la partie après une bonne trentaine de dés, j'avais eu que 2 figurines ....

Généralement, çà peut arriver en début de partie et l'IA rééquilibre en milieu de partie si on n'est pas mort avant.
Là non, çà voulait pas se rééquilibrer, donc moins de 30% de réussite contre un adversaire aussi redoutable que sympathique, ben çà fout le cul comme un baboin !!

Heureusement Aurélie m'a filé son stock de pommade de l'an dernier vu qu'elle n'en a jamais eu besoin Wink

Merci Laurent pour ce magnifique scénario !!!

Ericleal et Grougnaffe ouvrent le compteur, mais seulement avec un point pour notre traducteur du service du chiffre.
Le corsaire est monté à l'abordage du Pont qui pue.
Quant à Grougnaffe, il l'a dit, il a prévenu, il faudra compter avec lui pour le titre de Beautiful Looser. L'homme sait perdre avec panache et dans cette zone du classement, on sait qu'il y aura aussi du fight.

Match difficile pour moi au premier round côté Russe.
Avec de la chance au début où une contre-attaque sur un tir de barrage me permet d'éliminer la batterie de la mort près du pont, mais après c'était la Bérézina avec 63 dés lancés par mes Russes et 29 % de réussite seulement contre 86 balancés par les Schpounz d'Ericléal avec 38 % de réussite. J'étais donc éliminé en 23 tours de piste pour un jeu de 38 minutes 17 secondes.

Au deuxième round côté Teuton la partie est restée serrée jusqu'au bout avec un beau retournement de situation opéré par Ericleal qui m'a piqué ma médaille objectif pour se replacer en tête avec 7 médailles contre 6 avant de me passer la main.
Gros coup de bol pour ma dernière main, car avec un tir efficace de l'unique Teuton qui me restait sur l'hexagone Exit je lui descends d'un coup fatal trois chars qui me guettaient à touche-touche et d'un tir d'artillerie bien placé je lui descends un Russe survivant qu'il avait planqué le plus loin possible, mais encore à portée de canon.
Pour le deuxième round d'une durée de 33 minutes 50 secondes mes Teutons ont balancé 77 dés avec une réussite de 43 % alors que les Soviets d'Ericleal ont tiré 61 fois avec une réussite de 41 %.
En conclusion, quand on tire plus et avec un taux de réussite plus grand que celui de son adversaire, ça aide un maximum. Laughing

Merci pour cette partie Ericleal.
