FIX THE GAME!!!!



  • @The-Boctor I think we all know that answer. Haha.

    For real, it’s very unpleasant to play this game now. It used to be so much better. I used to play once a day, and now I’ve stopped or play once a week. Trying to find a new game to replace this. Such a bummer bc I like the ELO now but they’ve stacked the code against the players.



  • @The-Boctor exactly! I'd guess over 50 percent of the time, the number I just had blocked is either rolled by the AI players just afterward or by me on my next roll. Basically a double punishment for getting blocked. They don't have the integrity to admit this is the algorithm either though... we I guess we are wasting our breath.

    There is absolutely ZERO evidence that the dice algorithm is biased, and the developer confirmed this in this thread: https://forum.catanuniverse.com/topic/7996/the-dice-are-not-random/2

    Random means random, and bad luck can and will happen. Of course, players tend to notice bad luck much more than good luck, hence this kind of complaints by people that don't understand statistics and probability.



  • Hi all I just wanted to come in here and vent my frustration at the AI biased BS that I'm also experiencing! I'm actually relived that others feel the same way as I was beginning to feel like a sore loser although I do win most of my games. I've found the issues in all game modes and all expansions but I must say that playing cities and knights when all SO players target you constantly has very nearly led to me using my tablet as a frisbee! Not the tablets fault of course but I unfortunately am not able to access the developers directly and would probably not be able to throw them anyway as they are thoroughly weighed down by our money!
    Personally I love playing the board game with the family but the app!? I think I would either like a full refund or a developer fix before my frustration gets the better of me!
    DEVELOPERS: PLEASE FIX THE AI BIAS IN THIS GAME!!!!!!!



  • I have encountered the same thing but does it happen in multiplayer against people as well.



  • @The-Boctor

    With over one hundred games and experiments, all against master A.I.'s, I can support the statement that CATAN A.I. definitely cheats.

    There is no such thing as a "random" dice-roll.

    What a piece of crap this game has become



  • This game is starting to be a joke ... can u fix the roll dice and bot UI, its realy bad to make ppl pay the game with so many bugs , what a joke



  • Unfortunately, after thousands of games played (with different ELOs) I can say that the algorithm has as one of the basic criteria the rank of the players, which is totally demotivating and frustrating. There is no such thing in the real game !! Everyone should have the same chance with the dice.
