New single player updates - how to skip a level?: 5/19/2019 11:49:19

The recent single player update indicates that it allows you to skip levels, but I can't figure out how to do it.

A note in a in the single player level map reads, "Frustrated with a level? Try hard and a skip will become available," but no such option has popped up.

Anyone been able to skip a level? Know what I'm doing wrong?

I just want to skip a level that I've failed 6-7 times (and maybe go back to it another day).

If you win a big enough game with enough points, you can skip a level

I need to build up points to be able to skip a level?

Are these points specific to single player games? How do I invoke the skip?

I started the level & surrendered right away a few times thinking maybe it was linked to attempts/fails. But sounds like it's more based on success on other levels.

You win the level and you get points and points help you level up. Are you talking about single player or community levels?

Apparently "the app will detect when you are struggling with a level and give you a skip" but I don't know the requirements for it. Probably if you have lost it a lot of times you will get the skip.

Ohh. I was thinking about you skipping a level like from level 54 to level 56 in the case of leveling up

I'd guess that if you surrender a few times in a row, you'll get the option to skip.

I've failed the level ~5-6 times, and since then I've started & surrendered about 8 times hoping to trigger a, "Would you like to skip?" option but it just isn't coming.

Have yet to see the skip button pop up, but I haven't been stuck on any level till now.

I see you are stuck on Caesar's Challenge, that seems like the first level where many players get stuck! Just focus on expansion and leave the boss for last!

I've watched people's videos and tried to mimic them... but each attempt takes 20+ mins, I've failed about 6 times now and I've just given up and stopped playing SP altogether b/c I don't want to waste anymore time on this bloody level, but if there's a way to skip it, I'd be interested in playing other levels.

I get the concept of beating it, and I've come close a couple times, but the bottom right AI always seems to thwart my expansion just around the tipping point, coming at me with stacks of 50-70 growing to 90-120 as I'm moving from Spain across the top of Africa.

I may be a bit late but yesterday I was able to skip Caesar's Challenge. I just had a normal attempt and I was losing to the eastern AI, surrendered around turn 20-25 and the game offered me the opportunity to skip it

Event though I am happy to move on to the next one, I can't help but feel a sense of weakness when I see the red border around this level and the green ones around the other ones

Hmm, not sure why it's not popping up for me.

Agree with you that not finishing it and moving is frustrating, but at this point, I'm so tired of this level that all the fun of single player has been drained entirely & I've just stopped playing it.

Maybe I'll give it another serious attempt and surrender late in the game and see if that makes a difference. I think the last serious attempt I've given it may have been before the update, and have just tried resigning on move 1-5 since then.

You can always go back and try to finish it later. There are many forum posts and even Youtube walkthroughs for levels like Ceasar's challenge, so make sure to watch/read a few before trying again.

just played caesar's and it finally gave me the option to skip!! I started and surrendered several times (10+) and nothing happened. I played one game through 23 turns and after I lost, it gave me the option to skip. Not sure if this helps anyone, but it's my experience.

Well, the only way to skip a level is to try hard until the end and you have a chance to skip that level, based on how I skipped it.

4.17.1 update (right after new levels and skip was added)

- Unity: Fixed a bug with level skipping.

IDK what this bug is, but it's possible that some of you ran into it.

Oh so maybe you have to actually lose not just surrender ... will give it a shot.

Nope, didn't work. I'll file a bug report and see what comes of it.

I am saying that you do not have to lose, you just have to reach the end like turn 30+

Unfortunately, the criteria aren't listed. It just says "try hard, and a skip will become available". LOL
