2.0 seems to have generated a lot of anger and mixed feelings among wl players, I for one am a huge fan of 2.0 and would like to personally thank fizzer for making all the changes and working so hard on the apps. I dint care about the ads even if I wasn't a member I wouln't mind much. So guys stop bashing the man that puts his heart and soul into this game. He deserves to make money like any other hardworking man.

So please stop complaining everyone.

I also like 2.0. I did expect more from it but it has generated renewed (in some cases fanatical) interest in real timing and playing a lot more.

Well, i wrote few posts which may be considered as 'anger', but to be honest i can't say anything bad about 2.0. It's not appealing to me, as i feel no need to level up and win achievements and i would rather some new options or in-game PW etc. But i know there are many peopole who likes it and 2.0 changes can attract more players so it's step in good direction.

Im guessing this grandfather thing only counts for members. By creating the level system it completely turns away casual players. I’m honestly upset about this update. My friends and I play together but now we can’t because the settings have to be unlocked. It looks like we will have to find a new game because we simply don’t have enough time to level up and were certainly not going to play with the minimal settings given to us.

As I player, I do not like 2.0. The ads don't really bother me, but about everything else does. First, once I realized there were ads, I was willing to become a member. Unfortunately, $29.99 is too high for a single purpose game. I would have paid $10 without thinking about it, but for $30 there are many other entertainment options. As an example, I can buy a real copy of Ticket to Ride, and get the online version for free.

Second, I don't care about ladders or tournament rating, or any of that. I just want an enjoyable game. Formy purposes, the only reason to be a member is for additional player maps.

Here are my gripes:
I don't like the new interface created a couple of months ago. I don't like not being able to customize my single click options. I should not have to click two different things to either review history or card.

If is is true that diabling ads affects your points, that's crap. If you paid your money, there should not be any negative affects. It just speaks of greed. One more reason not to become a member.

I would prefer additional player filter options, and a way to have it show quickly in the map title in the lobby. Thus, players could recognize it may take a minute longer to set up one of my games; however, we won't have to deal with slow players, or players in 15 games, etc, etc. We can play fast and loose, and not spend all day at it.

I would like a chat room in the lobby. Like Yahoo Games.

It may exist, and be unknown to me, but I would like different styles of AI players (aggressive, passive, vengeful, etc).

@Turnips: We've been over the price of $30 and it is ok. You can search through the threads to find agruments why it should(n`t) have this price. It you do not care about the Ladders rating or being able to create Tournaments then the value of it is ofcourse gone for a big part. But just because you don't want some of the features of a thing doesn't mean it should be worth less.

About the new interface. Really, complaining about two clicks. -.- yeez. The screen looks a lot less messy and much easier. It is better this way in design and that one click wich makes me burn 0.00000001 kcal doesn't bother me. (I think it is annoying though that when you play a card the screen doesn't dissappear anymore, but I understand that it is more logic for the game)

I have not heard anything about disabling the ads affecting points. If this is true then it should be eliminated though.

You can add prereqs for the games so you can avoid some players. I don`t know if you can ask for a certain speed, but you can set a max bootrate, wich is very usefull.

There is already a chatroom, but it is not really used that much.

There are no different styles of AI players as far as I know (wich is 99.99% certain)

I'm liking 2.0 more and more as I get used to it.
The only thing is that the Achievements seem to come like a water fall all at once. I went from level 3 to level 7 all at once, and then when I signed on today, I was at level 10.
I think after it all settles down it will be more enjoyable. I don't have to look at everyone's stats to find good players.
I am not really going after achievements, I just notice them come. It is definitely time for a big upgrade. I'm glad it's here.

For new players they will not come as a Waterfall. You have just played a lot before and now you get points for it :D

Turnip has fair arguments. $10 for the ability to unlock all game creation settings (without allowing him to make tournaments, play ladders or do other things "full" members can do) seems fair. I have long said paid features should come a la carte: full membership ($30), game creation ($10), ability to play ladders, tournament creation, ability to play one seasonal ladder or create one tournament ($2-$5), unlock all maps ($5), monthly "full" membership ($3-$5, with all access features lost when the membership goes unpaid), etc. Without such options there will forever be complaints every now and then abojt price, no matter what others think is fair. If you are willing to pay $30 it doesn't mean someone else will.

$30 is simply too much. I don't honestly care about any reasons why someone thinks $30 is not too much. Warlight is basically Risk on steriods. I like Risk. Therefore I like Warlight. However, I don't see $30 worth of enjoyment. If you do, then pay the $30. You can argue with anyone you like, but your opinion is not more important than mine. I would have paid $10 for the game, and used the features I cared about.

And, then to attempt to inform me that my gripes with the interface and gameplay are not important is even worse. If the game worked how I would expect, then the argument for a premium price might make more sense. Since the interface is flawed, $30 is silly.

And, as far as a chat room. It is clear you do not play on Yahoo. The chat room built into this interface is inferior. It does not provide real-time value about games and players. Similarly, I play almost every turn in under a minute. Thus, having to click twice to do a quick check does matter to me.
