Matchmaking is quite fast for me. Much faster than other games I've played. There's a learning curve for figuring out all the actions but its well worth it. The UI sometimes feels too "minimal," I definitely could not figure out the trading screen for a while and it wasn't clear where you were able to click. The scrolls are a fair way of giving users a preview of the game before buying it.
I think the ratings are a little bit biased or maybe the developers fixed things in the past 5 months. This is definitely not a bad game by any means and feels well developed. It just needs a lot more polishing.
@Stroom I think the solution would be solving the immersion of dice rolling. My friends have a dice stadium when we play the physical copy and we love it when the dice starts to spin – it adds suspense to the game.
An idea I think would work:
Every time you "shake" the cup that hides the dice, an RNG determines a random angle for the dice and plays neat sound effects.
When let go, the dice moves at a velocity based on the velocity of the cup, plus a random tiny vector.
The dice lands in a stadium.
Having just an animation of the dice rolling would also work too and can simulate the suspense.
@Alexinho25 I really like your suggestion and I like the idea of "psychological relaxation."
Regrettably the current “Rivals for Catan” app for iOS is no longer available on the App Store since August 1st. It is unfortunately not possible to update the game for iOS 11.
This is because of the major changes Apple has made with its latest operating System iOS 11 and the resulting changes and updates that unfortunately cannot to be made for the old Rivals app.
We are very sorry about the circumstances and Apple’s decision to make such fundamental changes with their latest iOS version that lead to our decision.
However in addition to the Rivals/Duel introductory game already available for testing in Catan Universe, the development team’s next priority after the mobile app for Catan Universe is adding the full Rivals game to CU. At the time I cannot give you any info on a release date – however we’ll let you know via the forums and CU social media channels as soon as possible.
Just played a game where Al robbed from me everytime. Even with a player at 9 points. Please fix this or as I said on another string. If a player leaves, it should be non-rated or not lose ELO. Al is not smart enough to mimic a human player.
Spielst du das Basisspiel oder Städte und Ritter? Im Basisspiel kannst du die Entwicklugskarten kaufen, indem du auf den Kartenstapel rechts unten am Spielfeldrand klickst. Voraussetzung ist, dass du die notwendigen Rohstoffe auf der Hand hast.
Wenn du Städte und Ritter spielst, kannst du die Fortschrittskarten nicht direkt kaufen sondern erhältst diese Karten abhängig von deinen Stadtausbauten und dem Würfelergebnis.
Hi! Your last answer was written 4 months ago. That is: you were working on some payment problems. It is really embarassing that u has not neen able to solve this problem for 4 months... I did not received the golds a month ago (finally you gave me the golds manually) and this same is happening to me again now. I used a browser, paid via credit card, got the transaction code and nothing... I simply do not understand!
I have the same problem now. I had the same problem about a month ago (which was solved finally). I am again in contact with the support team but i just simply dont understand why i have to wait hours or days for the golds. Please solve this problem as soos as possible because it is getting really annoying now. Thanks.
I believe the error also, at least sometimes, says TIMEOUT. But it happens immediately....my internet is good, and it still happens. Maybe your 'timeout' response is set too quickly. A thought.
