I think i need some explanations here about idle time please...
it seems it doesnt change anything, so please can someone explain me how it works.

i have understood that the game will continue to produce items and money for 3 hours when i am not playing.
But I dont understand how the "increase idle time" works.
I thought i could make the idle time last longer if i increased it - i have the current value at 60 in phase 1 of my advancements but when i connect to the game the day after i see the max idle time is still 3 hours...
I hope i make myself clear.

thanks to you

the base idle time is 2 hours, so with the 60 extra minutes you have from your advancements, that in that total 3 hours you have now

Were you playing on both platforms at the same time? This is NOT SUPPORTED!! Syncing in this game means that your local progress is stored on the server. Not that progress on the server can be loaded into your local session. So, if you played both on your phone and in browser, syncing didn't do what you expected. First the phone synced the price with the server, then the sync from browser overwrote this with whatever your browser progress was. The correct way is, always play from one device at a time at most, ideally always sync before closing one session, and only then open up another session that will then load the current state from the server.

If you hadn't played simultaneously, then this won't apply and I don't have an explanation right now. If you did, this should be the reason it failed.

I have seen times where I manually sync on mobile, and it wouldn't transfer correctly. The is likely cause the server was still writing the save data while I exited the app. The easiest solution to this is to tap the sync button, then wait for the button to light up again before swapping to PC.

That's unfortunate. If you enjoyed Warlight ("Classic"), feel free to invite me or really anyone to a game sometime when you next decide to play it.

Hi!

well i think i have made my point in all my last messages here.
this sync thing between the app on smartphone and pc and all the "trouble" i have been through is just unbearable for me.
As i said i feel frustrated, it is just a game i know but in away i have spent a lot of money here - wich is ok- and i want an app to be fair to be able to continue.
To be honest i reacted the same way in the past with some web casinos who really werent treating me as i was hoping. not saying that you did butall in all i think it's time for me to leave and calm down with all the mess i descrobed.
we are just talking about few things-losing all the rewards from the spin wheel is really not a big deal - but...well that's the way i am.

It's been a pleasure to meet so many nice guys, and play games i really enjoyed.
maybbe i will come back for the classic games but for sure i am done with idle.

It's sad to read that you want to quit but to some extent I get where you're coming from. It's one thing to have to figure out yourself how to master some game, but if you are struggling with such basic things, it's really not fun to play. And WZ really needs its forum for such explanation at times because the game itself isn't exactly up-front with some of these basic concepts. And WZI doesn't have an straight-forward syncing concept yet. I, too, really hope that this will get improved at some point. Or the (what feels like) age old discussions about mortars and arenas.

Either way, wish you all the best.

@Phoenix: there is the Help forum for exactly this sort of stuff.

@l4v.r0v: I agree with your statement, but I disagree with the underlying assumption that a game dev can compensate for bad explanations by just offering a forum where users can help each other. I think that as a dev it's your responsibility to explain the basic rules to your users yourself. And things like a "straight-forward syncing concept" is nothing the community can exactly help with. That would be a technical solution to an existing problem and isn't influenced by the way people play. Ideally, explaining how the game syncs shouldn't be necessary at all, it should just happen in the background. I'm not claiming that I have a perfect concept prepared, but that doesn't mean, I'm not allowed to voice my wish for an improvement here. And the community mostly agrees that there is something off with the mortars and arenas, so what we need isn't a forum to agree on this, but some instance that answers to these wishes (or explains why it is the way it is today). But I know that there is only one dev here.

reading you all is really a good thing and makes me feel well.
I do agree with all of you, as i have already made some remarks that remained unanswered - like the way the draft is signaled on maps as i find it hard to find it in very big maps.

Also i recognise that i am not familiar with the sync thing and even though i might have done something wrong, i was thinking i was in the right to get back all that i have lost; well it seems not. Anyway i also agree the sync should be just automatic so that would avoid players like me to feeel so frustrated.

best to all of you and keep on having fun.
