Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!!!
The change to make tournament matches more than just 1 point takes this app to a new level. Already the most social of its kind, now the tournament contests are most challenging and strategic. Yes, they take longer. Yes, there are players who are rude and use some crude language...but these things come when you prioritize what really matters to a community of strong players. Not perfect, but the best of what I’ve seen in its class...and it just got better.
