What's New in Version 2.3
Lots of improvements! Including:
* Penalties for quitting in multiplayer
* All new achievements
* More fun end-of-game experience
* Many bug fixes and other minor improvements
Good but ways to improve are:
I live this game. Idle that it can be interactive with real people. As we know the robots could be improved BUT being that I don't like to play with robots, we should improve some things about human players.
1) we should be able to view stats. And decide if we want them as a partner. This doesn't mean they can never play, it's just they have to play in the beginner rooms until they get better.
2) penalties for people who quit games. So many people punk out and discontinue the game if they screwed up a nil or just didn't get their books. Lame. If people quit too often, they should be sent to the "quitters" room, or at least to the beginners room.
3) if a person quits after their partner did, they should not lose a token. It's not fair to have to play with a robot when that wasn't the intention. Also, they shouldn't get the penalty if they quit bc the partner quit.
AI has a long way to go
1 - Control of the board: AI partner will often time bust your nil by drawing out a certain card just to lose control over the board (concern for bags). Yet, the AI partner will intentionally hold moderately high cards to cover your tricks and will force you to bag/take control of board. In order to counter you own partner, you will have to always take your books early or over bid to prevent bags.
2 - Always a bad hand: I typically play the most difficult setting which by default will almost certainly guarantee you a run of horrible hands which would not be possible without stacking the deck. My guess is that difficult = crappy cards.
3 - Running the spades: no self respecting spades player would run spades unless they could actually run them... Or at least have some concern for a suit of they have an abundance of. AI WILL ALWAY RUN THE SPADES AS SOON AS THEY CAN... When I say run, I mean screw you out of your potential of cutting.
4 - Beware of the passive AI partner: AI will usually lead with a weak card when you have a queen or king that you intend to take a book with... Don't count on it. I use the 50% rule... Count 50% of your kings and. 1/3 of your queens. This of course means bags, but it's better than getting set.
What's the purpose to pay for the app to be treated the same?
We should be able to join rooms and watch our friends play. While we can wait for the next game. A main chat room with folks so they can meet you. Is no way to text someone that's in the lobby. Making it more social I think will make it better!!!! Why can't I log in? I deleted it to add again and it's not working! As you win you should win a token! A token being taking away after every game is terrible! Or you accumulate more tokens than 1. What is it? One token every hour? Or u should def be able to watch videos or do surveys or something!
