SpamSlammer ,

I like the game but

Like SpamSlammer said, I 100 percent concur. If I’m trying to come in and he has 2 or 3 spots covered, it general takes me 2 or 3 rolls to get in. If I’m taking prices off with all 6 spots covered, then open one spot, he gets in in one roll. In an even race, you will lose. You cannot match his onslaught of doubles. I like it because I use my skill to overcome his cheating.

Thank you for your feedback:)

Disappointed in latest 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 one time this was a fun it’s playing the computer. I’ll be looking for a new backgammon app....I suggest you do too.

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.

Horrible App

This is by far and away the worst of the backgammon apps available. I’ve played several and this particular is the most unreal or unbelievable. They even choose whom and when you get to play??? The dice are preset, therefore fixed!!! The Mersenne Random dice generator is a self learning algorithm, making it jaw-dropping and totally unbelievable. The worst part about the game itself is the app developer, they ask for comments and then write back with, read the “Frequently asked questions” or “if you don’t follow the rules, you’ll be censored for 1440 minutes”. Too funny, but true. I can’t wait to see their response to this one. Last but definitely not least, it’s hard to respect a game/app when its so corrupt. Way to go Russian Developers, you prove your reputation again!!! Cheats

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.
