    @acokeparty You know that there was a Catan App before Catan Universe (now its called Catan Classic). Since I am with USM my playtime focusses mainly on these Apps.

    I do know. I bought it many years ago. The one thing I noticed right away when I first played? It takes 3-4 times longer than a game on PlayCatan with real people. Because every action you and the AI takes is so stretched out and takes way too long. The trading menu lacked back then too!

    And that reason right there:

    "Since I am with USM my playtime focusses mainly on these Apps."

    THIS is the crux of why your responses are the way they are, and the root of the obvious fact that you don't get what us players from PlayCatan are talking about. You never spent any significant time on PlayCatan! If you had, you would be in the same camp with the rest of us. What a shame.

  • We need a lobby so badly it's not even funny. I've been forced to play this rubbish since Play Catan shut down and I can't get one custom game started because there is no one I can get to join. This is why you need the lobby because it's absolute crap for new players. The dice is killing me in knights and base game and can't start a custom game in dice mode.
    Can someone tell these people that we need some changes made because none of us can get through to these guys.
    Makes sense though that these guys never ever tried Play Catan and only have ever done the app stuff because this game is so slow to play and some choices make no sense whatsoever.
    Another reason for the lobby is I can't rejoin a game if for some reason I get kicked out.... this is so frustrating.



  • Lobby == Community.

    You can clearly see that after PlayCatan closed, the forum became 10x more active. Before that, most of the activity was only bug reports and people trying to unlock Arrival to Catan. Everyone who came from PlayCatan know that it is better. And the lobby is what makes a good community. Community keeps the game relevant.

    Look at Catan Universe twitter, facebook etc... They are all pretty much dead.



  • @belz I second all that you said.
    Would much rather see who has opened a game and join the one I want.
    And that the only option is to play with an AI or abort instead of giving the player a chance to come back to the game is also nuts.
    I was kicked out since I could not make a move in the allotted time due to a game bug (I could still chat but after clicking the End Turn the button just remained on..... and then could not rejoin. Punished twice for nothung that is my fault.
    After all this time bugs like this should not happen.
    I have yet to play a a basic game where everything goes without a hitch for the entire game.
    Good grief!!!!



  • @Stroom Indeed. And I know they are sick of us complaining nd making suggestions. But we come from a much better game and expected this to me a good alternative.
    So disappointed in the shut-down and this being the replacement?????
