@danimaldog What slows me down is not inexperience, but often tech trouble/ glitches/ refreshing/ being stuck. If the timer is shortened, only more kicks will be the result. And in moore complex szenarios, you have to build and buy a lot, it is difficult to play all the cards as it is.
@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.
The ability to match based more on ELO than other criteria favors protecting high ELO players from the higher risk of being randomly matched with low ELO players....and losing. This benefit has to come with a price.
Any person who puts ELO as the primary criteria should have to maintain the highest total wait times across a period of time than most other players. That means being ready to partake in a game against other players with similar ELOs for more hours per month than other groups of players with significantly lower ELOs. Hopefully this would also translate to playing more games, and that would of course risk their high ELO against other very good players.
Now you have a balance where ELO is being protected AND also still being risked.
@Administrator I have just joined the wounderful world of catan. I hate this game because all I want to do is play the tutorials so that I can learn about the world and I get kicked from the game every 7-8 min. Can you please fix this? I have not spent money but would if the game was at all reliable.
