This morning I kept getting a new error on the Windows app from Steam:
"Error server is blocked due to a long running script"
This afternoon, I can't even search for a game. I can't get past "Auto match" and "Custom match". I click on the button and the screen flashes and sometimes I can see the next screen before I'm back to the same spot.
21 Jan 2020 Unable to play. I can see in my network monitor that the application connects to Catan servers and has traffic. I just can't play.
23 Jan 2020 Still unable to play.
24 Jan 2020 Still unable to play.
1 February 2020 Problems have largely disappeared after a server update and I log out and back in
It looks like once you join a game, one of the players disconnects, ai doesn't take over, and the wait time doesn't disappear after the time is over. Or maybe it's just one of the players failing to connect to the game. Either me or another player is constantly failing to connect to the games.
The other two/three players are just stuck in the game. When they reconnect, it takes them back into the stuck game.
If you decide to leave the game, it costs you elo and stars. But there is no other way to leave the game other than to quit it appears.
I will stop playing Catan Universe until this issue is dealt with. The game is literally unplayable.
