- Fixed critical bug in the game logic
Ratings and Reviews
They say it’s random
Let me start out. I like this game and I generally win. That said, for the last several weeks the game has been catching up. Some examples. If he hits me and has 2 spots covered it might take me 3 rolls to get in. If I hit him and have 5 spots covered, he not only instantly rolls the 5 to get in but the 3 to hit my one open piece. Sometimes I can predict the one possible roll the computer needs to hose me. And as soon as we clear each other and get in race mode, his next roll more often than not are double 6’s. When we are taking pieces off - he general has 3 sets of doubles, I might get one set. Hard to believe the random odds God’s favor the computer that much. But it does make it challenging. I usually need a big lead when we are taking pieces off. Challenging!!!
Disappointed in latest changes....fun has been removed.
This app has changed so much over the last couple of years....for the worse in my opinion. When I first started playing this app, you could chat with any player you chose to play with out of the queue. Then, that feature was removed & you could only chat with established “friends”. This defeated the purpose of making friends. I personally didn’t add a player as a friend until after I’d played & chatted with an individual a few times. But, I continued to play & just chose my matches from the queue based on bet size, name, photo or just random CHOICE. Now.....NO choice is available to me. The game now chooses who I can play, how many times, with or without extended time & I can’t even pick a board design unless I choose the corresponding bet amount. And forget making “friends”! Main chat is the only place to have a conversation. What’s the purpose in that? I’d rather be playing the game & chatting than just posting random comments in a group of players who may or may not speak same language. As soon as I’m out of coin, I’ll be leaving this game. Too bad....at one time this was a fun game....now it’s boring....like playing the computer. I’ll be looking for a new backgammon app....I suggest you do too.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. We are very sorry that you didn't like our latest update.
Chat during the game was turned off to prevent players from insulting each other.
Automatch was introduced to simplify the gameplay, as well as to ensure that dishonest players could not fill their rating, transfer the gold obtained by dishonest means and so on.
In the future, you will see big positive changes that you will surely like. We will be waiting for you in our game. We hope your opinion will change for the better.
Total joke! Now they decide when and who you get to play???
To anyone considering purchasing this app, I urge you to save your money and play for free. There are several reasons as to why, but the one that stands out the most is the dice are fixed! In 10 consecutive games, I was able to guess the opponents next role of dice and was dumbfounded when my daughter and I were correct an unbelievable percentage of the time. I contacted the game developers to let them know. They said that if I could predict greater than 60% I would be a genius and they would reward me with gold coins (for the game). So I recorded a game while guessing 67% of the rolls and submitted my recording as they also suggested. Now they claim they can’t open the email due to size??? Whatever losers! To add insult to injury, they now won’t share actual stats on the dice we roll. The counter is inaccurate, they admit to this too. I think it’s pathetic and sad that they won’t admit to the fact that their Marcene random dice algorithm is totally rigged and unbelievable!!! Don’t waste your money!
Developer Response ,
Why do you believe dice are fixed when you can check yourself in our statistics section (Profile -> Statistics -> Dice) and confirm that long term dice roll statistics indeed correspond to those of mathematical expectancy.
Looking forward to your response.
EDIT: As for the recording, please upload it on Youtube and send us the link.
Also, if you don't like Merseenne Twister RNG algorithm, which one would you recommend us to use?
The situation described by you is correct, except for one moment. We said that we did not receive your letter with the video, not that we could not open it. You probably didn’t send it because of the large file size. In our correspondence, we asked you to upload this video to YouTube and drop the link. But apart from endless insults, we received nothing more from you.
