Seasons will be a feature we will implement later this year. We are in development for them right now and let me say they will be a lot of fun Every player can participate in them (level 5 and a free of scrolls for participation) and you will be able to unlock cool stuf just by playing certain expansions. As soon as we have something to show we will let you know.
Yes you can buy the seafrer and CaK expansion in the bundle bundle without having the basegame. It´s a great combo because you can play the seafarers scenarios (my favorite) with the cak ruleset (my favourite)
At the moment you can´t see how many players are only. the most popular game ist the basic catan game (first island) but i would suggest to look out for a guild and start playing with them so you will have buddys to play with
@katrae also who is I have no idea why they have gone with the 3D feel. To me the main benefit of playing a digital version of a board game is that you don't have to mess around with physical pieces, like in Monopoly where you are trying to fish around under the board for those $1 notes.
Also I find it annoying not to be able to see the board whilst trading. Maybe that person wants to build where I want to build etc.
@Poisonguy i must say i totally agree with you about the "fixed" dice numbers and the "strange" behavior of the AI. It's a real pity because i love the game but if you destroy this two things i cannot play it at all. I don't think the admins are guilty by choice but they need to fix these things in order to play a fair game. Plaese, do something about it!
@whuffo the game is available via chrome and it doesn´t matter if you run chrome on pc or mac (please use a 64 bit version of chrome for the game). If you should run into issues runnig the game on your device please contact ou support via email@example.com.
The account you created for Steam is not the same account you use for the game. If you are an early access user you can still use your early access account to log in to the game.
@Administrator said that they would optimize the game later to work with smaller requirements. Well, now they are going public with it and no word on optimization. Seems like quite many things were promised before the game goes live but are not done. Tournaments are missing as well. The game does not display the settings in-game before the game starts. Probably a lot more but I don't remember everything the admin said in the past.
@ankh. Thanks for your question. The VPs are the only thing that matter when claculating the position on the leader board. In your experience you may have lost ELO because the player which came in first place had a lower ELO than you. It is also possible that the other player who came in 2nd lost fewer or even gain ELO if his/her starting ELO was singificantly lower than yours and/or the winning players.
@Baaby Glad you noticed this too. I'll be commenting in another thread on this because I did an analysis on this last night (the dice rolls, at least against the bots, are definitely not random). And 5s and 9s seem to be the favored rolls.
There was this bundle package, I think. Most expensive one, gives you everything I guess.
And I will mention it again: I am really not OK with having to buy the random maps feature. Random map is the fundamental part of Catan. Making it cost something is the most stupid decision you have made so far. The second one is not copying the PlayCatan functionalities - trading, lobby etc.
