Update 4.18: Clans into app, liked / recently played community levels

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.18.0! This blog post describes what’s changed.

This update is live now on the website. The Android app will be updated in the coming days, and the iOS app will be updated in the coming weeks.

Clans integrated into App

The iOS/Android app now have official support for clans!

This means when you tap a clan icon in the Unity app, it will now let you see clan info directly in the app, instead of redirecting you to the website. There’s also a link to view your clan in the top right menu, as well as a link to view all clans on the Community tab.

Also, if you are invited to a clan, you will now receive a push notification, and you’ll be notified of the invitation via the top right button.

Upon opening the notification of a clan invite, you’ll be shown a new dialog that lets you accept or decline the clan invite.

This is a big improvement for clan invites! Prior to this update, invites only sent you an email. Many app users don’t even have email addresses registered, so they would never even know they were invited to a clan. Now, they can’t miss it.

Also, the store tab now allows for creating your own clan via an in-app purchase.

Liked / Recently Played Community Levels

On the Community Levels screen, there are now links to view a list of all levels that you’ve liked, and another link to view all levels that you played in the last week.

This helps a lot for keeping track of levels. Prior to this update, I frequently heard feedback that someone would start playing a level but weren’t able to finish. When they came back the next day, they weren’t able to find the level to resume their game.

Other Changes

– Unity: Fixed a bug that made clan chat not be registered as viewed, leaving the red number up when it shouldn’t have been. Thanks to ViralGoat for reporting this.
– Unity: Fixed a bug that caused an error when posting to an old forum thread. Thanks to number for reporting this.
– Website: Clan pages now show their icon.
– Website: To help reduce spam invites, clan managers can no longer invite someone to a clan that’s already in a clan. If someone wishes to move clans, they must first leave their existing one to receive an invite to the new one.

Update 4.17: Expanded single player

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.17.0! This blog post describes what’s changed.

This update is live now on the website. The Android app will be updated in the coming days, and the iOS app will be updated in the coming weeks.

Expanded Single Player

Although I’ve always viewed Warzone’s multi-player as the best way to play it, there are surprisingly a lot of people who only play single-player. Those people haven’t gotten much love in terms of features over the years, but today they get some!

When single-player was first added in 2009, it was primarily designed to act as a tutorial to teach players how to play before they jumped into multi-player. Initially, it only had 5 levels! (three normal levels and two challenges). A 6th level was added shortly after and then eventually a tutorial level.

In 2016, single-player was expanded to 35 levels. It was still a tutorial of sorts, as most of the levels introduced a new concept or game mechanic. Community levels were also added at this time, which as exploded in popularity as they now approach 10,000 published levels!

With the Warzone release in 2017, offline play support was added.

Starting today, the single-player campaign is being expanded to a whopping 127 levels!

These are divided into two parts: The first 36 levels are still a tutorial, introducing new Warzone features (one was added to the previous 35 to introduce commerce mode, which didn’t exist in 2016). The remaining are some of the best community levels that have been copied into the main campaign to show them off more broadly.

In order to accomodate adding so many new levels, some of the way the app treats levels had to be re-worked. Prior to this update, all single-player levels in the campaign were embedded in the app. This was great as it allowed for offline play, but it wouldn’t scale to 127 levels since embedding all of the maps into the app would make the app too large. With this update, the app will download the levels and maps from the server for all levels after World War Pixel. To help enable offline play, the app will pre-download the next 5 levels in the campaign to your device ahead of time. This will enable you to play five levels without an internet connection. You can see this work if you look at the single-player tab and look at the bottom right corner of a level’s thumbnail. If this level is not cached on your device, a small internet icon will appear to let you know that you need an active internet connection to play that level.

This update also now adds the ability to skip levels if you’re having a hard time with them. If the app detects that you’re struggling with a level, it will ask you if you want to skip. You can always come back to a skipped level in the future.

Additionally, due to the increased level count, player’s profiles no longer list the names of all the levels, as this would get too long. Instead, it simply shows the number of wins, gold stars, and skips.

Other Changes

– All: Made level World War Pixel easier since it’s no longer the final level.
– All: Profile pages now show some quickmatch ratings.
– All: Fixed a bug in team games with huge numbers of orders. Thanks to krinid for reporting this.
– Unity/UJS: The stroke opacity on a map’s bonus links are now displayed correctly. Thanks to NinjaNic for reporting this.
– Unity/UJS: Improved the quickmatch tutorial.
– Unity/UJS: Links sent in chat by players using the red color are now white instead of blue.
– Unity: If no open tournament is available, the My Games page will now show a random open game instead.
– Unity: Replaced the multi-player “Play now” arrow with a less intrusive button highlight.
– UJS: Fixed a bug with the map designer that made bonuses not register their bonus link right after being added. Thanks to Bane for reporting this.
– Website: The “Switch Web Mode” link is being moved into the Account Settings page. The old link will remain for a bit to tell people where to go if they need to switch.

Update 4.16: See finished games, new map designer

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.16.0! This blog post describes what’s changed.

The website and Unity client have been updated to this version now. The Android and iOS apps do not need an update and will stay on 4.15.

See Finished Games

Have you ever been playing a multi-day game, only to find that the game mysteriously stops appearing on your My Games page? This is a common occurrence when your opponent surrenders but doesn’t give you a parting “gg” message in chat.

Prior to this update, the My Games page would only show you active games or games with unread chat. This means that if a game ends without anyone chatting, the game would simply vanish from the list and never give the satisfaction of letting you see how the final turn played out unless you dug it out of the Past Games section. This was a very common complaint, and something that’s now finally fixed!

With this update, Warzone will give you one final chance to see how a game ended by including finished games that you haven’t watched the end of yet in your My Games section. To clear the game, simply open it and watch the final turn. If you never watch the final turn, the game will go away on its own once it’s archived (typically after approximately 24 hours for a real-time game and a week for multi-day games.)

New Map Designer

For the first time in 9 years, the map designer is receiving an overhaul! The map designer is used, along with an svg editor, to make Warzone maps.

Starting with this update, the new map designer is available to anyone whose account is in UJS mode by selecting Multi Player -> Design Maps. If you want to access the old map designer, you can still do so by changing your account into Flash mode.

The biggest feature of the new map designer is that it does not rely on Flash. This means that maps will continue to be able to be created after Adobe kills off Flash in 2020. Yay! It also means it doesn’t require un-blocking Flash constantly and also loads much more quickly as a side benefit.

As a bonus, the new map designer also has the ability to automatically default set the center of point of territories to the center of the object. While this won’t always be the correct center point, it saves a step when it is.

The UI around creating and managing different versions of your map is also much clearer and faster to use.

If you’re a map designer, please let me know what you think!

No longer dependent on Flash

With the map designer no longer requiring Flash, it marks a major milestone. For the first time in 9 years, Warzone is no longer dependent on Adobe Flash. And for the first time ever, we’re is not dependent on any browser plug-in at all! This means that all features of the game can be run in your browser using pure javascript + html, so we are officially ready for Flash’s demise.

Of course, the option to play Warzone in Flash still exists. Don’t worry, Flash users, that option isn’t going away yet. My numbers show that just over 1% of Warzone’s players are still using Flash. You will need to upgrade at some point, though, as Flash is being killed by Adobe in 2020.

Other Changes

– iOS/Android: Push notifications are now sent when someone sends you private mail.
– All: The chat room no longer advertises open game creation.
– All: If no players in a quickmatch game enter orders on the first turn, they will all lose the game instead of randomly picking a winner.
– All: When creating a double-elimination team tournament, third place will now always have coins that divide evenly by the number of players in a team. Thanks to Phakh Gokhn for reporting this.
– Unity/UJS: When loading a template, you now have the option to load quickmatch templates.
– Unity/UJS: Fixed the link color on players using Electric Purple so it’s readable.
– Unity/UJS: Client-side mod failures now get recorded on the server so that the mod author can see them.
– UJS: Fixed maps that use even-odd fill rule, such as Poland Big. Thanks to Dj Storm for reporting this.
– UJS: Fixed an issue with local storage filling up. Thanks to Rome_Warrior for reporting this.
– Unity: Blog posts are now only shown if they’re made within the last 7 days.
– Unity: Decreased the number of posts shown per page on a forum thread to keep things loading speedily.
– Unity: Mod authors now have an option to delete all pending reports at once, as a convenience instead of doing them individually.
– Unity: Fixed a bug that made the map disappear when trying to open a map preview link that does not exist. Thanks to Bane for reporting this.

Update 4.15: Chat links, community tab, mod categories

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.15.0! This blog post describes what’s changed.

The website has been updated to this version now. The Android app will receive this version in the coming days, and the iOS app will receive this version in the coming weeks.

Chat Links

In Unity and UJS, links present in game chat or in the chat room will now be a hyperlink that you can click on to visit. This alleviates the need to copy/paste links into your browser to access them.

Community Tab

The Unity app now has a new tab at the bottom:

This allows iOS/Android users to access features that were previously only accessible on the website, such as blog posts, map of the week, forums, the active twitch livestream, new maps, new community levels, and see ladder standings.

Map of the week also allows voting, as well as browsing previous map of the week winners. Forum integration allows browsing each forum, making new forum threads or replying to forum threads, as well as upvoting or downvoting forum threads or posts.

Mod Improvements

The mod page now sorts mods into categories: Development, Promoted, Standard, or Experimental:

The Development category shows your own mods while you’re working on them, and are only visible to you. The other three are publicly visible.

The categories are determined by an admin based on the stability and general usefulness of the mod. New mods will start out in Experimental and then move up as they’re tested and proven to work well by the community. This helps new users of mods have a good experience with them by picking the mods that are known to work reliably.

The maximum storage size available to mods has been increased from 100k to 1000k. This helps ensure that mods won’t die when used in very large games.

In an update a few weeks ago, the performance of mods was greatly increased. Like the storage size increase, this helps ensure that when mods are used in very large games they don’t time out.

Finally, mods now have a “trusted” flag that can be set by administrators. Only trusted mods can be submitted to quickmatch, and this flag will also be used in the future when ladders and tournaments support mods to ensure that malicious mod owners don’t try to sneak in changes.

Other Changes

– Unity/UJS: Sped up the speed of the game chat panel opening.
– Unity/UJS: Fixed the “chat chunk negative” error. Thanks to Bonsai for reporting this.
– Unity: Links in private mail threads are now clickable.
– Unity: Fixed display of large round robin team tournaments. Thanks to Min34 for reporting this.
– Unity: Fixed color of icons on settings page. Thanks to Bane for reporting this.
– Unity: The Contact Fizzer button now uses the built-in mail page instead of redirecting to the website.
– UJS: Fixed errant “Friends” tab when changing players in a custom single player game. Thanks to Muli for reporting this.
– UJS: Fixed multi-select checkbox not showing up until window was resized. Thanks to Muli for reporting this.

Update 4.14: New Dark Theme, UI improvements

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.14.0! This update brings the new Dark Theme to the game, fixes up the UI throughout many pages of the game, and fixes a few bugs and small improvements. This blog post describes what’s changed.

The website has been updated to this version now. The Android app will receive this version in the coming days, and the iOS app will receive this version in the coming weeks.

New Theme

As previewed previously, Warzone now has a fresh new look!

In addition to the new theme, I’ve also gone through every page in the entire app and tested how it looks on small devices. The most difficult configuration to support is a 2.5-inch wide phone being held in portrait mode, due to the limited amount of horizontal space. I’m proud to announce that, with this update, all pages work well in this configuration. Prior to this update, some pages looked horrendously awful, such as the level up dialog and the community levels details page. I’m hoping this is a very appreciated change in the long run.

Let me know what you think!

11 years old!

Last week marks 11 years from when I first started making this game, way back in 2008. We’ve come a long ways since then, and we still have a long ways to go!

Other Changes

– Unity/UJS: When making a tournament with a very short start time, the game now warns you that not many people will be have a chance to join.
– All: Level “3 Blind Mice” made slightly easier.
– All: Fixed InvalidOperationException error.
– All: If a game with mods times out more than 10 times in a row, it will be automatically ended by vote-to-end.
– Website: Fixed missing style on forum next to “hidden threads” link.
– Unity: Fixed level up dialog from overlapping alerts. Thanks to Hamstirly for reporting this.
– Unity: Fixed flag on full profile page.
– Unity: Fixed a bug with changing accounts with the chat room open. Thanks to Beren for reporting this.
– Android/iOS: Fixed the message that appears when a notification arrives while the app is open. Previously, it would always say the game “just advanced” even when it didn’t.
– Android: Fixed a bug that made the hardware back button potentially break the tutorial.

New Dark Theme Preview

Hello all!

I’m working on a new theme for Warzone. Here’s a sneak peek at what it might look like. In all of these screenshots, the current theme is on the left, and the new dark theme of the same page is on the right.

In addition to just changing colors, I’m also trying to fix how the app looks on small devices. The most difficult configuration to support is the 2.5 inch wide smartphone being held in portrait mode. Some of Warzone’s pages look very bad in this configuration, such as those that list games/tournaments/templates. Here’s an example of how these terrible looking pages are becoming not-so-terrible with this new theme:

I’m also looking at fixing up some areas that are hard to read, such as the Ladders section on profiles:

Let me know what you think!

Update 4.13: Speeding up real-time games

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.13.0! This update takes a first step towards the eventual goal at decreasing the amount of time it takes to complete real-time games. This blog post describes what’s changed.

The website has been updated to this version now. The Android app will receive this version in the coming days, and the iOS app will receive this version in the coming weeks.

Server stores your orders

Starting with this update, the Warzone server now stores orders as you’re entering them in multi-player games. Previously, these orders would stay on the client until you pressed the Commit button, at which point all of your orders were sent to the server.

By sending orders to the server more often, this offers a few advantages:

Auto Commit

Prior to this update, failing to press the Commit button before the timer hit 0 in an auto-boot game would result in you getting booted and losing the entire game. Now, with this update, Warzone will simply use the orders you’ve entered so far as your set of orders for the game and continue it as if you had pressed Commit.

This makes the booter much more forgiving and allows you to continue to try and salvage a game where you would have otherwise been granted an instant-loss. Auto commit is a necessary prerequisite for games with faster boot times. Once this update is fully deployed, we’ll start to reduce boot times on some real-time templates to experiment with making real-time games faster.

Teammates Orders Appear in Real-Time

Prior to this update, you could only view orders entered by your teammate after they commit them. Now, you’ll be able to view your teammate orders as soon as they enter them.

This greatly eases the collaboration in real-time team games. When your teammate deploys or attacks, the armies+arrows will show up immediately on your map so you can see what they’re doing.
If they play a card, it will show as “Played” immediately so you know not to use it, alleviating the need to call out “I’m using the card” in chat.

Resume your turn across devices

If you enter orders for a multi-player game on one device, you’ll be able to view or commit those orders on another device. Prior to this update, this was only possible if you were on the same device or if you committed your orders.

Push Notification Improvements

When a multi-day game ends, players in it who have push notifications enabled will receive a notification letting them know whether they won or lost.

Push notifications are also now sent leading up to the start of real-time tournaments you joined, giving you plenty of reminders so you’re ready for it.

Renamed Blacklist to Block List

Your blacklist is now known as your block list. Its functionality has not changed, just the name. While the term blacklist has never meant to refer to skin color, we want to make sure that new players don’t think that it might.

Other Changes

– Unity/UJS: Fixed the turn number displayed in the top left corner when watching turns. It displays one number lower than it did before. Thanks to the person who reported this on twitch.
– Unity/UJS: Fixed a bug with mods that change territory ownership before deployments happen that would cause an error if someone deployed on a territory that they ended up not owning when the deploy order executed.
– All: Sped up the animation speed slightly when watching turns play out.
– All: Added a pop-up message the first time a new player opens Quickmatch that explains how it works.
– All: Players below level 10 can no longer create private mail threads.
– All: The surrender tutorial no longer requires watching an ad to play. Thanks to dannyB for reporting this.
– All: Fixed an issue with FFA coin tournaments that caused the second place prize to be wasted if it didn’t divide evenly. It now gives the left over coins to first place. Thanks to Wayne for reporting this.
– All: Fixed some issues to improve the reliability of 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 ladder.
– UJS: Fixed a bug that could cause alerts to close right after opening. Thanks to TBest for figuring out how to reproduce this.
– Website: Separated Wiki and FAQ into separate items under the Help menu.
– Website: Fixed a bug with surrender tutorial and Facebook login. Thanks to Syphen for reporting this.

Update 4.12: Addressing booting

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.12.0! This update aims to reduce the number of boots that players experience during games. This blog post describes what’s changed.

The web version of Warzone is updated right now. The Android app will be updated in the coming days, and the iOS app will be updated in the coming weeks.

Booting

Warzone’s boot feature is essential. Back in the old days, before booting was implemented, a single player leaving a game would render that game stuck forever. Booting solves this as it ensures that the players who wish to continue the game can do so.

However, in an ideal world, players would never get booted and would instead surrender. Some people don’t seem to understand the importance of surrendering and will simply walk away from games whenever they are losing. This manifests as players who show 40% or higher boot rates on their profile.

These players are bad for Warzone in a few ways. In real-time games, it’s always annoying when you’re playing a game and your opponent doesn’t surrender, as it requires you to sit there waiting for the boot timer to expire before you can move on.

Additionally, it’s a bad experience for the players who get booted as well, as they often find that their open games fill very slowly, or they have very few options available to them on the open games list due to prerequisites. I often get contacted by people who experience these troubles and have no idea that their boot behavior is what’s causing it.

This update aims to address this problem. Here’s how!

Open Games Shows Number of Hidden Games

Players with boot rates over 5% will now be shown on the Open Games page how many games they’re missing out on due to their boot rate. A small message will appear at the top that says something like “87 games are being hidden due to your 60% boot rate”

This helps educate players on what they stand to gain by improving their boot rate.

Surrender Tutorial

The first time a player is booted (or every time if they have a high boot rate), they’ll be forced to endure a Surrender Tutorial. This is a new tutorial that walks them through how to press the surrender button in a game, and also educates them on why it’s better to surrender than get booted.

This accomplishes four things simultaneously:

  1. It shows them how to surrender. New players sometimes simply don’t know how, as prior to this update there’s nothing at all in the app that even mentions the existence of the surrender button. Players were expected to find it by exploring the user interface, and some people never do that.
  2. It educates players on why they should surrender. Similar to the above Open Games change, it explains why it’s beneficial to have a low boot percentage.
  3. It’s a deterrent against rage-quitting. If players with a high boot rate know that every time they fail to surrender they’ll be forced to go through the tutorial again, they might think twice before walking away from games. At least, it’s taking up some of their time that they took away from their opponent.
  4. It develops muscle-memory of pressing surrender. Muscle-memory is a powerful tool, forcing humans to develop it can drastically affect human behavior.

If you want to see what it’s like, use this link.

Boot percentage

Some people have been booted thousands of times, which is a hole that is impossible to dig themselves out of. Now that they’re being educated on why they should stop getting booted, they need a way to return to single-digit boot percentages that doesn’t take years.

To accomplish that, all player’s boot percentages are now calculated based on their last 100 games instead of all games. This is a more accurate reflection on their likelihood to get booted from their next game.

Conclusion

In time, all of these changes combined should have a drastic reduction on the boot rates of players. I hope to post a graph of the boots per game ratio in a few months, and I expect to see a drop in the numbers in the weeks ahead of this update. Stay tuned!

Other Changes

– UJS: Alerts now use the UJS alert system instead of the browser’s.
– All: Chat raffles are now sometimes a super raffle, awarding many more coins.
– All: Fixed CannotAssignSlotsWithoutCustomScenario error caused by changing the map of a template that had a custom scenario defined. Thanks to TBest for reporting this.
– All: Fixed CannotMixTeamsAndNonTeams error caused by templates that got saved with bad team data. Thanks to Braveheart for reporting this.
– All: Fixed a bug that sometimes made chat room messages appear out of order.
– All: Fixed a bug that sometimes made chat room messages get missed, particularly if they were sent very close together such as when rafflebot responded to a player.

Update 4.11: Chat rooms!

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.11.0! This update adds chat rooms, as well as fixes bugs. This blog post describes what’s changed.

The web version of Warzone is updated right now. The Android app will be updated in the coming days, and the iOS app will be updated in the coming weeks.

Chat Rooms

This update brings a whole new way of chatting to Warzone! Two types of chat rooms are supported: Clan chat, which lets you chat with your clanmates, and global chat, which lets you chat with the entire Warzone community.

You can access the chat by selecting Community -> Chat on the website, or by clicking the chat button in the top right corner of the iOS/Android app (once it launches, see above).

Not only does it allow chatting, it also shows activity going on in the community, such as forum posts, open games/tournaments, seasonal ladder activity, and more.

Global chat provides an easy way to see what’s going on in the community at this very moment. The goal of this is to help bring the community together, especially new players who are just getting started learning Warzone.

Clan chat makes it easy to talk to your clan members. If you’re in a clan and someone chats, you’ll see a small red number next to the chat room icon in the top right corner. Posts to your clan forum also show up here.

I realize that many clans have already adopted a third-party chatting system, such as Discord. I’m totally fine with that, and if it works for you, I suggest you keep using it. Warzone’s chat rooms will never be able to compete on features with Discord. However, Warzone’s chat room will help supplement your Discord channel in a few ways. For one, you can use it to help get new clan members into the discord. Two, it shows all posts to your clan forum (and coming soon, it’ll also show players joining/leaving the clan as well as title changes).

If someone in clan chat gets rowdy, clan managers have the ability to time them out. This deletes all their messages in the chat room and prevents them from chatting for a duration the clan manager specified.

More features will be added to the chat rooms soon. Give it a shot and let me know what you think of it so far!

Other Changes

Update 4.10.2: Viewing profiles in-app, UJS-Canvas now default

Warzone has just been updated to version 4.10.2! This update adds the ability to view profiles in the iOS/Android app, as well as fixes and improves a bunch of stuff. This blog post describes what’s changed.

The update is live now on the website. The Android app update is available now — your device should auto-update in the coming days or you can go to the Play Store to update it manually. The iOS app update will go live once Apple approves it, which usually takes 2-7 days.

Viewing Profiles

The Unity client now has the ability to view player’s profiles directly in the app! It used to redirect you to your web browser app when selecting a “View Full Profile” button.

This makes it much more convenient to view profiles. It also makes it much easier to add or remove other players from your friends list or blacklist, since those buttons are located on player’s profiles.

Sending Mail

The Unity client can now create private mail threads with other players! Previously, it was only possible to reply to mail threads that were sent to you.

This is done via the new Send Mail button on a player’s full profile page.

UJS-Canvas Default

The UJS-Canvas mode, that was introduced as experimental in the previous update, is no longer experimental and is now the default mode for all players. The UJS-Canvas mode makes playing games on the website faster and look nicer. You can still switch back to UJS if you don’t like it for some reason, but please send me mail and let me know why you did so!

Tweak to “MME Commanders LD No Cards”

I’m making a small tweak to the popular quickmatch template “MME Commanders LD No Cards”. West China will be worth 1 fewer army per turn, from 6 to 5. This will go live within the next day or two, so be on the lookout for that.

Other Changes

Full list of changes made in 4.10.2:
