I have encountered this problem too many times. I was just in a cities and knights game where as soon as it was my turn I was going to win, but Catan said I was offline and I see the kick timer for my name. I attempt to refresh and rejoin the game (well under the two minute timer) and it tells me I was kicked. Instead of winning, I get last. This game is too unstable to play.
Thanks for the details. I'm having to do this every time I spam the stats button as a game ends. Somehow one of these files must be left in an inconsistent state, and I'm doomed to get "Cannot Connect To Server" whenever I search with Automatch until I follow those instructions above. This will be the fifth time that I had to reinstall this weekend.
And just in case the forum admin is ready to pass this issue onto the technical people, yes, I logged out and back in AND I restarted my PC.
@administrators the AI doesn't mimic the human behaviour at all. Most of its trade offers are insane (offering 3 stones for 1 wood. Really????) and the decision about who to trade with and who to steal from are also very questionable.
@Ech0e5 I don´t play single player, but when the AI comes in as a substitute for a player who as been kicked, it always unbalances the game. It targets the weakest players instead of the leading ones and shows no reasonable strategy. Especially in trade, it acts really stupid, and without forsight.
I completely agree! For such an amazing game that they created , it’s extremely flawed! One of the worst barely functioning games I’ve ever seen! It’s astounding. I haven’t been able to play for a month. They are going to loose a lot of fans if they keep this up.
