    Appreciate others have had issues getting on, but I got to give props to GGS for what seems like a pretty successful rollout. I didn't get any disruption or notice much difference beyond some graphical stuff (time skips logo looks a bit weird on a skip screen). And now on phone with Puffin, it automatically remembers my credentials and logs in within 3 seconds to the right server

    cheers GGS

    edit: im running CHrome on Windows 10 and Puffin on Android on Samsung phone

    Unlike.a lot of folks here, the games working just fine on puffin for me.

    Apart from aforementioned issues with graphics and lag, I have just one issue.

    It seems that the enter key (return key) is not working as intended. While using game chat, I now have to click the sent button on screen instead of hitting enter. And it's the same when entering the number of tools in the tools popup. Have to manually click the green tick mark on screen. Earlier the enter key would this.

    Would be great if someone can look into this.

    GGE thinks Im trying to login to my GB1 or Int3 account... Im not sure if I am at this point to be honest :)

    Textures are off by a mile too. There are some really nicely defined textures and assets, but several objects such as the background, the roles of players in their alliances, and when hovering over any player in rankings, the asset is blurry.

    But, I love the new spelling error system in PMs and MMs, it's great! Though for some reason my dictionary is American... bloody Americans ruining proper English lol

    funny how everything I type is now a password apparently.

    Also I received a player survey from the game, tried to open it, and it immediately closed and was replaced with a window that said something along the lines of "This message contains inappropriate language" or something like that. Maybe the sender will get a ban, who knows

  • Some of the issues brought up here we are already aware of:

    • Graphics - Gameplay looks smeared /  blurry
    • Settings - Missing the High - Low graphics options
    • Chat - Pressing enter sometimes won't send messages
    • Latency - Game is slower to load / lags behind
    • Puffin - Puffin browser will not load the game on mobile

    These issues along with a list of many others have been reported over to the appropriate teams.

    Puffin browser is not currently working on all devices because it is a flash based browser and the game has now transitioned to HTML5. You may use the URL: https://empire.goodgamestudios.com/flash within your Puffin browser as a temporary workaround to the HTML5 transition.

    Good news for mobile players (and all other players) is that soon you won't need to use the Puffin browser to play GoodGame Empire. Since HTML5 is supported on mobile browsers, like Chrome, you'll soon be able to play GGE on a mobile device without a specialty browser. Currently we are waiting on the development team to map out the mobile controls, but for those of you on Puffin this is something you can expect in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to use the flash link provided above.

    Not only do you roll out garbage html that was never fixed from the beta version, you remove comments from this thread,  just another day with the same old typical stuff from gge
    I said the same earlier and mine was deleted.. along with about 30 other peoples expressions of disappointment. Part of discussion is also handling criticism, and addressing it. After all, this is a "discussion thread" and we are customers. We are allowed to have an opinion, share it, and commensurate with others who feel the same way, which is also valuable to GGE. Deleting and ignoring the concerns of paying customers is a poor way to conduct business. A moderator calling our concerns and disappointments "griping" is just plain rude.

     If the moderators cant handle seeing criticism and passing it along, perhaps the moderators should be replaced. Who do we contact to address our concerns about moderators during this time of HTML transition? 
    Just to support, I'll be submitting complaints as well.

    It's a discussion thread, and you take out the discussion?

    Man, GGS have really gone downhill since I left.

    EDIT: Edited for clarity
    I agree with you Fried... 

    The new HTML should not have been released in its current state and it is 100% our right as paying customers,  to let it be known that a large chunk of us are unhappy. Months of teasers and testing, and the product is sub-par. You cant play without getting an eye headache because the graphics are so poor and fuzzy. That isn't us being negative. That is a FACT and only ONE OF THE MANY ISSUES.

    These are legitimate ON TOPIC ISSUES. We want a definitive answer of how long Flash will be available, since many of us don't want the eye headache. It should be available at least til the glitches and issues are fixed completely. 

    Reported. Thank you Fried.

    I;ll be filing complaints as well. Not only did my post criticize, it addressed a dfix for a problem and some ego maniac deleted it.

    GGS has gone back to it's money grabbing ways. It's their only focus. They are bound to fall off the edge of the flat earth soon. This HTML5 rollout is garbage. Since flash will not meet it's EOL by Adobe until the end of NEXT YEAR it should be available and USED here until GGS can fix this mess they have created with HTML. GGS has had since the July 2017 announcement that flash was ending at the end of 2020. 1 3/4 years and GGS couldn't get the transition right.

    Give us flash back and clean up this mess.

    "These issues along with many others ..." says it all. Take this garbage down and put flash up until it is fixed. Flash EOL isn't until Dec 31 2020. It's March 2019. Don't force a bad release on us. FIX IT then launch it.

    Hello,

    i've followed every step of your Troubleshooting guide and gues what ?

    It's all useless , i use W7 profesional and even after following all your tips and steps the game is slow and the image quality is awfull .

    W7 profesional is used by the company i work for and they have more than 100000 employees using it, so you can't blame it on the version of Windows that players are using

    Even player who have computers less than 2 years old with W10 have the same issues !!

    You choosed to switch to HTML5 , so it's up to you to make sure your game is compatible with HTML5

    And by the looks of it , you've got a long way to go

    indeed me and my wife uses laptops good standard ones,when flash go down she cant even play any more because html 5 freeze up the loadingtime,is she after 5-6 years gaming suposed to stop,and me when i after 10-20 minutes looking at the damn loadingtime gets in makes it very boring and well inside the game laggs and maps up in worlds takes 1-4 minutes to load up,mousecursor dont follow with the game blurry maps,if you type in the box you sending troops to attack and click ok it sends 1 single troop,very hard to send correct amount troops inbetween worlds.... if you want i can find more issues i just dont have in my mind atm...

    Flash vs html5 is like choosing to bicyckle vs a cars engine

    I am going to use the flash version as long as I can. IIRC, the anouncement of HTMl5 version said the flash version was only going to be available for a few days. I sincerely hope that it will be available until the HTML version is right. I highly suggest no new game content(events, equipment, features, ect) updates be done until the HTML issues are resolved.

    The new HTML version while not as blurry as the Beta version is still not up to par. There are some weird delays in commander availability after they return, and slow response in the attack screen while trying to set tool numbers.

    I predict that if you(GGE/GGS) do not do as I and other players suggest you will lose a lot of sales due to players quitting due or playing much less due to eye strain and frustration with a company that just flat out lies and doesn't respect their customers.
