Profile's now show what country players play from! Just open anyone's profile and you'll see a flag. Hover over this flag and it will tell you the country name.

Here's the official announcement: http://blog.warlight.net/index.php/2014/09/update-2-8-country-flags/

Well, I made them the same height as the membership icon and facebook icon that can appear there too. I thought it would look strange if they didn't line up. I will consider shrinking them.

Errr .. I'm not Korean lol

The flags go by current IP address?

So you could go on holiday and appear Jamaican lol.

EDIT: Oh plays from ... Can we have the option of having our home country?

EDIT EDIT: The size seems fine to me.

Good question Ska. I would assume it needs to represent where you are playing from, not heritage (why would Fizzer want to track that?).

Have you ever played from Korea?

If the flag is inaccurate, give it some time to update. The initial population could have been based on stale data (especially for really old accounts). It should fix itself within a few hours after the next time you access the site.

If it's still wrong after 24 hours, let me know at http://warlight.net/ReportBug

I live in Korea, I never hid that fact - though you wouldn't probably know it if you didn't read my posts - and really why would you lol :)

I did ask if they go by current IP address and added my edited when I saw the words used was: 'plays from.' And then asked if we could perhaps put home country on.

Though it would be interesting to see what happens when I use Hola or a VPN :)

Checked all my games. Two things:

1) looked to be accurate from what I know about people on here.

2) There are even more people from Poland on here than I knew about.

Good job!

What does the "last seen ** minutes ago" base on? Is it last time committed orders in a game?

Brisk people have used other ways to find nationality... Flag counters are the most common tool of alt hunters.



By the way, excellent add Fizzer!!

did you read the blog post?


“Last seen” on profiles

Player’s profiles now have a line that says “last seen”, and indicates how recently they accessed any part of WarLight.

This replaces the old “inactive for” line. The old line only appeared once a player was inactive for more than a few days, and this activity was only based on how recently they entered orders into a multi-player game. That meant it was very inaccurate for people who didn’t play multi-player, such as those who only played single-player or only chatted on the forums.

One profile doesn't show any flag? Have they used Tor/masked IP? Or does the flag show after the play has been online again?

One profile doesn't show any flag?

For some accounts, (especially old ones), their flag won't appear until a few hours after they play the game for the first time after the 2.08 update.

If still no flag appears, then there's two possibilities: Either they're playing from a country that I didn't enter a flag for (there's a few small ones, like Antarctica that I didn't bother with), or the IP-to-country program I used didn't know where they were.

Great update. Please leave it as where playing from. I'm looking forward to suspected alts playing whilst on holiday from both accounts.

Mystery man! You are British! We should start hanging out.

I highly doubt anyone plays from Antarctica, Fizz

Cool new feature though, and the "last seen" thing will make it easier to see who is online for real time games
