Hello all,

Thanks for everyone who sent feedback, please keep it coming!

I just deployed an update, v4.00.5, which fixes all the highest priority issues that were reported to me. Fixes are listed below.

Just like the first three threads, I'm looking to hear everyone's feedback on the new version or anything related the game at all.

4.00.5:
- Fixed a bug that caused an error when creating a custom single-player game while signed out and adding two "You"s to a game.
- Fixed a bug in the attack/transfer dialog that made it add a % sign in the wrong place when mixing percentage attacks and non-percentage attacks. Thanks to nich for reporting this.
- Fixed a bug that could cause an error if you double-clicked the accept-ladder-team-proposal link.
- Fixed a bug that made quickmatch team games say "FFA" in the title. Thanks to Bane for reporting this.
- Fixed a bug that caused an error when creating a tournament if you tried to select 1 player per game.
- Fixed a bug with the AI in commerce games. Thanks to Hasdrubal for reporting this.
- The "View Cycle" dialog in NLC games now scrolls instead of getting huge. Thanks to Scotto13 for reporting this.
- Android: Fixed the icon that appears in push notifications.
- Fixed the "C" hotkey for checking/unchecking commander. Thanks to Muli for reporting this.
- Fixed templates with mods in quickmatch. Thanks to Muli for reporting this.
- Fixed text colors on links on the tournament page. Thanks to Master of the Dead for reporting this.
- Fixed the surrender prompt in 1v1 games.
- Fixed WebGL loading progress bar moving backwards. Thanks to Njord for reporting this.


What's next?

The iOS app was rejected due to some obscure rule about not requiring signing up to an account to purchase in-app purchases. Other than bug fixes, getting the iOS app deployed is my highest priority right now.

News about new graphics will come in a couple weeks.

Not sure if this is a bug, but this beautiful player has gotten points recently when they’ve been suspended for eons.

It’s probably an achievement, and he got the second birthday one last month, but that was longer than 30 days ago.

i got,
11/20/2017 09:38:17 1 Wheel spin
11/19/2017 18:29:22 2 Wheel spin

it doesn't bother me much, but isn't it intended to be at least 20h interval between spins?
Also, i got another wheel spin prompt yesterday (11/19/2017 after 18:29), but after ads there was 'sorry, you can't spin now'(or something like that) message.

On my android ad didn't even show up when I press to spin the wheel. Therefore, I do not ever get coins.

I just raised my game count on qm md and instead of one new game got two.

Also I believe I should be able to disable the wheel spin since I payed for my membership in order to play without ads and now I am getting popups(!). Or did I miss that option?

edit: I got a rt qm at the same time? Not sure whether this was a simple misclick then. But I think qm rt should be named appropriately.

Not sure if this is a regression. If a player has a lengthy url on their profile, it only renders two "columns", and the third column is displayed in a new row.

I don't like the location of the dashboard button. I have to make an extra click to get there now. Much like when we lost the "open games" button, it was a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of thing. Also, this is a purely aesthetic thing, but I don't like the camo background. On the plus side, the warzone logo is great, and it continues to be a fantastic game over all.

Overall I have to say I quite like the 2.0 version, especially that starting positions are easier to spot. Commerce games seem like fun and quick match is a nice addition.
Found one thing though, that i don't think works as intended. I just got matched in QM with a guy that has been last seen 5 days ago in a game with a 1d 6h timer. Maybe you should disable the queue for people that are offline for longer than the game turns are.
(addition: just got matched with another who has close to 3d). For now I can just up my own amount of games that i want to play, to work around that and find an opponent, but i think i've read somewhere theres a cap on the amount of games, so that might become a problem if that list fills up with inactives and i have to wait until the boot timer runs out.

A few minor points:
- I kind of miss the "next game" button, especially now that you have no way to multi tab with unity.
- Tournament lobbies even more hidden (have to switch window/tab then navigate through site to find them, unless i overlooked something)
- Preview full Maps: old version -> one click on the left side ... now: open settings tab, then go to full settings and finally find the button to view map. Why not just add the button next to the mini map in the settings tab directly, or better yet move the mini map to the game lobby between game name and setting symbols, with the option to click it for preview, or with the button for it.

how come there is a slight difference between my 1v1 and my global rating, although i only have finished 1v1 games so far and therefore those should be exactly the same?

Yes, but you can queue up a spin. In other words, if it' been 40h+ since your last spin, then you can get two in a row. It isn't possible to queue up more than one, so even if you wait a year between spins you just get two and then you're back to the 20h timer.

On my android ad didn't even show up when I press to spin the wheel.

Sorry about that. Does this happen every time, or is it just occasional? I'm working on a way to turn off the coin wheel more permanently for those who don't want it, but right now finishing the iOS app is the highest priority.

I just raised my game count on qm md and instead of one new game got two.

Did it take you over your maximum? What was your max at and how many games did you have?

Is this intended to display two "close"? I got the second one after Game -> Statistics -> Inspect Players Territories.

Yes. When you click the magnifying glass, it moves the dailog out of the way and shows you the map. Since the dialog is now on the right side, it gives a second close button to allow closing it without dragging the dialog back.

If a player has a lengthy url on their profile, it only renders two "columns", and the third column is displayed in a new row.

Good catch, I'll truncate the url.

it was a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of thing

Unfortunately the nav on the old website was very broken on mobile devices. It was fine for 2008 when that website was made, but these days everyone expects your website to be mobile-friendly, which means everything has to fit and size correctly on small screen sizes, which the old website didn't. Further, Google penalizes non-mobile-friendly sites, and WarLight was getting penalized hard by it.

Quickmatch gives me some trouble when i am working in another tab or in another program. Got the game starting sound in a match today when it had already started for 4 minutes

This was the WebGL client? What browser? Was it in a inactive tab, active tab, or its own window? Some browsers don't give much/any CPU time to tabs when they don't have focus, so this may be the cause.

I just got matched in QM with a guy that has been last seen 5 days ago in a game with a 1d 6h timer.

Quickmatch automatically disabled on accounts that are idle for 5 days exactly. So perhaps the game got created when they were just under 5d, and by the time you checked their profile they were over 5d. But yes, this already happens, it sounds like you just happened to get someone who was right on the edge.

I kind of miss the "next game" button, especially now that you have no way to multi tab with unity.

I do have plans to bring this back, it's just in a long list :)

Tournament lobbies even more hidden

The plan is to bring tournaments into Unity as an official feature, and fix a bunch of tournament's biggest issues too.

Why not just add the button next to the mini map in the settings tab directly

I agree, that's a good solution.

better yet move the mini map to the game lobby between game name and setting symbols

That page is already REALLY crowded when viewed on a small screen. Fitting things on small phones takes a lot of work.

The amount of rating you gain or lose depends on your opponent's ratings for each category. For example, since you're really good at 1v1, defeating you in an FFA will give less rating to the FFA category than defeating you in a 1v1 would give to the 1v1 category.

In the "Templates" section currently there's no way to view it. I am planning to fix this.

Once you get 40 wins and unlock the "Voting" section, then you can view all templates here.

And of course you can always go to Past Games, find a game that you played on that template, and view it there.

yes WebGL client using chrome. I had quickmatch opened in a tab waiting for a game, then opened a new tab to read the news while waiting. When i thought it took long to get a game I switched back and the game started already being 4 minutes old

So, a lot of people are noticing this, but when you're playing on flash, sometimes the game will just randomly freeze for a few minutes. Sometimes I have to reload the page to fix it. I can't click or mvoe anything in the WL window.

EDIT: It seems to be when I change tabs then come back.

i feel this does not answer the question why my 1v1 and global rating are different while i only played 1v1 so far. shouldn't they match?

First of all thank you a lot for the work, it's the 5th version of the game in really few time and you seem unstoppable in fixing issues!

I'll list the things I think are not perfect yet:

*Website:
***Drop-down menus: I know they are trendy but the old version was more functional (I believe you said you are an engineer so I think you understand :) )

*Android app:
***Design - I can't see or access the top left corner because of a dialog box that don't move or close. One possible fix would be making that like the player's tab or the order's tab that can be opened or closed clicking the yellow button.
***Performance - It's really slower than the previous app, specially during the log in and sometimes it randomly crashes (the previous app only crashed with maps that were too big or games with too much rounds).
***Performance - I can't introduce the number of troops to deploy or attack manually because the keyboard don't appear. I tried to click and press the number and nothing happened so I always have to use the selection bar.
***Previous turn animation - Really liked the dynamic version of "play" mode! Problem is sometimes it's hard to follow lot's of stuff happening at the same time, it would be better to find a balance between dynamic and possible to follow.

again, thanks a lot!!!

No. If your opponents also only played 1v1's they'd match, but they don't.

If you and I each had 10-0 on QM, but yours were 1v1's and mine were 2v2's, beating me in a 1v1 would result in you gaining more global than 1v1 rating because my global would be higher than my 1v1.


At least this is how I understand it.

My ratings are often slightly different as well despite all my games having been RT 1v1's.

Feedback on performance:

New mid-range gaming desktop:
The game takes forever to load, sometimes literally. Like I just leave my computer, take a shower, eat dinner, wash the dishes, game still hasn't loaded. At that point I give up. When I can get into a game, it's fast and responsive, better than Warlight was.
Edit: The fact that there's no progress bar for loading makes things worse. I don't know if it's just loading really slowly or not loading at all.

Older laptop (what I previously used to play Warlight):
Heats my processor to 90 degress C. Didn't test much because I didn't want to run at those temps, but it was slow.

New budget smartphone:
Game loads fast enough, but slower than Warlight did. The menu is slow, doesn't register all taps, and often registers a swipe as a tap. This is annoying because then it starts to load a game, which I can't cancel, so I have to wait a long time for the game to load, then press back to go back to the menu, which also takes a while. In game, it's also slow, doesn't register all taps, and registers some swipes as taps.
