@LilSanity I use a computer, and have the same issues, so have all the other players I chat to, no matter wich device they use. We posted many complaints about it, and admin promised that they are working full speed on this. But it will take a while. Let us hope they come up with a fix soon.
@Muzik777 First, click on the game button (hex on the bottom of page). A menu pops up on the left side. Choose Automatch , set your preferences, and click on start search button (down left side). Automatch starts searching. (unless there are connection or server issues) Eventually, a game starts, hurray!
@Administrator Nobody would even think of using it, if the CU server would be more reliable
But alas, it is not Therefore sometimes, when a Catan addict hasn´t been able to finish a single game for too long, we get very frustrated and naaaaasty.
@Administrator leider hat sich immer noch nichts gebessert.Seid dem ich die Sonderszenarios gekauft habe,fliege ich ohne Gründe aus dem Spiel.Ich möchte das sie sich darum kümmern von 10 Spielen kann ich höchstens eines zu Ende spielen und das auch nur wenn schon jemand vor mir raus geflogen ist.Das ist kein Spiel Spaß sondern Spielfrust.Ich bin sauer - habe mir meine Elos hart erspielt und nun verliere ich alles wieder Stück für Stück und DAS OHNE GRÜNDE.Ich fliege selbst ohne kicktimer. Meine Internetverbindung ist stabil und zuverlässig.Es muß definitiv an CATAN liegen.So hat man gar keine Lust noch Spiele zu starten.Und ihr kassiert Geld dafür....für was???? Das kein vernünftiges Spiel zustande kommt?
Bitte um schnellstmögliche Abänderung und UPDATE
Posting here to notify the admins of the fact that this still hasn't been resolved. It's seriously a game-breaking glitch. Also, it would be great if the AI would stop targetting the player that is in last. It does this because it only knows to go for the highest producing tile. It doesn't at all consider which playing is doing best. Simply changing it to go for the highest tile, that the player with the most VP (showing) would be so much better. That would be really a very simple and much-needed change. In addition to making sure the AI doesn't randomly cancel trades.
Gibberish names. I bet this is intentional and the admins are unable to block users from doing this. And ignore list will not be able to handle this - just create a new user every once in a while. As long as the free scrolls last.
Due to the karma starting from MAX for all players, any user can come and ruin the games of good players.
And due to the matchmaker being so bad, it is hard to block bad players from coming to your games.
I agree with stroom and don't take ELO too seriously. Just had an excellent game, very tight score the whole game. Never more than 2 points separating the the highest and lowest score. Ended tying for a loss with each of us having 9 points. Maybe since we both had the same score against the same opponent we'd lose the same amount of ELO... No. Because the person I was tied with had an ELO lower than me, I got over 6 points subtracted from my ELO while the person I tied with lost less than two points.
I had more fun playing that game and losing than many of the ones I've won.
