Catan Universe reviews and comments

Translated by

Más y más y más errores. Los habituales, que no parece que tengáis intención de arreglarlos: - Cuando se va un jugador del juego, éste se cambia por un jugador (IA) y sigue el juego. Hasta ahí todo bien, pero el problema es que muchas veces ocurre un error en el que aparece el mensaje “el jugador ha abandonado la partida” seguido de “has perdido”, y la absurda pérdida de ELO, cuando tú no has abandonado el juego ni has perdido realmente. También sucede que, nada más empezar la partida, ésta se cancela y te quitan el ELO, sin que sepas por qué ha sucedido y sin que tengas culpa. - Cuando estás comerciando y estás esperando a que te respondan los demás jugadores, pierdes la referencia del reloj de tiempo, con lo que pierdes la referencia del tiempo que te queda esa ronda, pudiendo hacer que pierdas el turno. - En navegantes, no hay una referencia de cuántas cartas de desarrollo quedan en la baraja, con lo que te puedes encontrar que estás esperando a tener las materias necesarias para comprar una carta y cuando la vas a comprar ya no queda ninguna. - El motor de búsqueda sigue siendo una pesadilla. Para encontrar jugadores online a veces hay que esperar mucho rato. A los habituales se suma el nuevo: - Ha desaparecido el reloj de turno, por lo que las rondas son una agonía. Hay gente que aprovecha esta anomalía y tarda muchísimo en terminar cada ronda. * Nunca había visto un juego en el que los desarrolladores tarden tanto en añadir mejoras y donde las mejoras sean tan malas. FOR DEVELOPERS, IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND SPANISH: More and more and more issues. The regulars, who do not seem to intend to fix them: - When a player leaves the game, it is changed by a player (AI) and follows the game. So far so good, but the problem is that often an error occurs in which the message "the player has left the game" followed by "you have lost", and the absurd loss of ELO points, when you have not left the game You have not really lost them! It also happens that, as soon as the game starts, it is canceled and the ELO is taken away, without you knowing why it happened and that you are not at fault. - When you are trading and you are waiting for the other players to answer you, you lose the reference of the time clock, with which you lose the reference of the time that you have left that round, being able to make you lose the turn. - In navigators, there is no reference of how many development cards are left in the deck, with which you can find that you are waiting to have the necessary materials to buy a card and when you are going to buy it there is not any left. - The search engine is still a nightmare. To find online players sometimes you have to wait a long time. A new issue is added to the usual ones: - The clock has disappeared, so the rounds are an agony. There are people who take advantage of this anomaly and it takes a long time to finish each round. * I've never seen a game in which developers take so long to add improvements and where improvements are so bad. Or non-existing. Hi OssobukO, during the global roll out there have been some hick-ups with the matchmaker. These are resolved by now.
