Ratings and Reviews
I'm impressed at how well built this system is. I really enjoy being ranked by the games that I play. Just be careful about making illegal moves, unlike standard chess games that won't let you do it in Shogi it will cost you the game.
I like 81Dojo for the most part, but the non-Japanese experience is poor for new players. When I try to get friends to download the app and play locally through WiFi we kick each other off. Additionally, on the mobile app there is no way to change the image used for the pieces to an international set, so I cannot teach my friends as easily (this feature exists on the website). Having to create an account on the website to work for mobile feels really bad and confusing.
Single player experience playing online is pretty good. Watching others is great. Signing in as guest is great.
Overall very good
The app is good, though it would be nice if there was a way to remain connected to the servers if you take too long to think and your phone auto locks. The shogi free app allows that, so I’m guessing it’s an issue on the host’s end. But the players are extremely friendly and helpful and it’s overall a very fun experience
