@ZealotTKO Sorry for the delayed response. Due to the holiday season, we haven´t been to look into it in detail But now that everyone is back on board we did a quick investigation.
Since our systems haven´t been built to extract the data you are looking for it would, unfortunately, be a large endeavor to extract the data.
If there are more people out there wondering about the same questions, I would suggest founding a guild that focuses on collecting the data from a sample large enough (e.g 1000 games). Sure it will take some time but it could be a nice community experience.
@Administrator The AI is NOT behaving "properly"! Today AI2 (with 8 points) offered a trade and I am the clear underdog with 5 points (AI1 has 10 points and I have 5 with no cities OR tiles on my development card). I try to accept the trade, but the trade doesn't go through with either player. ALSO, I am in no way threatening AI2's position or path. So, If AI2 is NOT trying to trade with me it's retarded. STOP trying to convince us that there is something WE are not understanding and FIX the AI program. We KEEP telling you that IT WAS NOT LIKE THIS IN PLAY CATAN, why won't you listen?
My experience is, that under special cirumstances, the turn timer is stopped and failed to start again.
(Like when you play only with the KI). Maybe some Players found out how to provoke this (wrong) behaviour (bug).
This goes for any kind of dice or card game. There are times when an individual will run really, really hot. It's how it is. You can't expect there to not be crazy games ever so often. I played a game once where I got an 8 9 9 starting spot. Not a single 9 rolled the ENTIRE game. It just happens and it isn't hacking.
@Nyte_ The forums do only represent a very small percentage of the overall users we host on Catan Universe. Unfortunately, it is is quite hard to get "everyone" or even a representative number of users to take part in a survey since for most players their time it to valuable for something like that.
But to be clear: Every comment and feedback send to us either via this forum, the social media pages, the review sites or via an email is read and taking into account for determining how Catan Universe will be developed in the future.
As a business...even a small % of feedback should be powerful enough for you to look at. In saying this, when you mentioned quote " Unfortunately, it is is quite hard to get "everyone" or even a representative number of users to take part in a survey since for most players their time it to valuable for something like that." I am positive that you will get a response from a "small representative number". I am sure that people would be happy to give constructive feedback. It would be a positive start >> We use survey monkey & other tools a lot in our business to get anonymous feedback from staff on how we can improve on things.
@Autofap Please note that you might have played the "Ore for Wool" scenario which is the only one without a randomization. This is due to the special character of the scenario in which you should trade ore for wool.
