Hi Tilley,

 

Looking into this for you now. Does this happen every time for you? Or just occasionally? Also, I can see you are on the Ladder when you attacked. Does this happen from another areas where you can attack? (Creature Combat, Attack Player, Etc?)

 

Conix :)

Hi albertn,

 

There is a link in the post to sign up for the beta, or you can use this one here to sign up for IOS:

https://testflight.a...m/join/h1ukkxsO

Once you have done so you should receive an automatic email with your code. Let me know if you have any issues receiving this and I can look into it for you.

 

Conix :)

Conix,

Error has resolved. It now works! There is a typo down below “attampt.”

Also, is there a way to default the screen after attacking to the battle log instead of the combat summary? More useful in my opinion. Maybe a preference can change it?

I cannot find my health number anywhere, just a percentage. Total health needs to be on the combat somewhere. Preferably on both screens.

Hi Tilley,

 

I'm glad this is resolved, please let me know if it happens again and I can do more digging. Really hard to work out why something not working when I cant reproduce the issue. 

 

Thanks for pointing out that spelling mistake... Oops... Fixed now and will be in the next update.

 

In this update we removed the health value in favour of the percentage. We found it fit nicer on the screen than the health values that can sometimes reach ridiculous levels. If this is something that you and the rest of the sword community feel strongly about we can have a discussion about getting these values back in there.

 

For the same reason as the health value, we decided to put the battle log in its own screen where it has more space to display its often long breakdown. We could add an option to default this screen, but I'm wondering how many of you would toggle this setting? If enough of you would like this as the default screen we could have a sit down and work out how to make this so. 

 

We really do appreciate your feedback and we hope you and everyone else keep it coming! It really does help us make a better game for everyone!

 

Conix :)

Hi Penny,

 

Sorry I didn't reply yesterday, sometimes the update can take some time to roll out, but it should be available by now. We can have a look into this our side to see if there is any reason you shouldn't be seeing it and will hopefully find a solution. We will try our best to get you playing again really soon!

 

Conix :)

Hi Penny,

 

Can you try something for me that might work? Can you opt out then back into the beta and see if that helps? Beta stuff can be a bit flaky sometimes and if this can get you back in then its worth a try.

 

If not, could I get you to provide details about your device? The model and android version could help us narrow down why this is not showing up for you.

 

Conix :)

The health is vital when doing any sort of PvP but I do understand it can be larger with higher levels. I would prefer to have the number though - a preference might be ideal to avoid those larger number. But, I don't know what the rest of the community thinks.

 

I would definitely like the Battle Log to pop up first as I always want to see how combat plays out and what skills/buffs activated. The way it is currently, I will always open this after a battle. This is more important than the health issue in my opinion. I'm sure others who PvP on the app will agree with this.

Thanks Tilley,

 

I have brought this to the attention of the rest of the team and we will look into a solution that fits the new design and is more practical in use. Will aim to have something new in place for the next update.

Awesome, 

 

Thanks for letting me know! Really happy you have been able to get the update and are able to play again! How did you get the update? Did it just show up over time or did you try opting out then back in? Just curious to what you did so I know what to tell people if it ever happens again.

 

Conix :)

I got a notification about one of those endless FB/Messenger updates (I cannot fathom why those need to update daily but for some reason they seem to do so) and FS was on the update list.  So I guess it just took a bit to propagate.

Awesome, 

 

I'm glad you are able to play now and it was just the app taking its time to become available worldwide. We hope you enjoy the new update and we look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on this new version.

I did some more testing with PvP on the app. I have some concerns about the Battle Log screen. I have attached one image from the app and another from browser – this is the same combat. The app doesn’t give as much information as the browser, it gives incorrect information and is generally more confusing.

The app doesn’t list out what buffs/enhancements activated (Anti Deflect, Barricade, Severe Condition, & Dark Curse) it just says “4”. The ones that activate are crucial to knowing if you need to change your setup/buffs. We need to be able to see what activates.

It also states that Tilley10 gained Reinforced Armor – this is incorrect. Reinforced Armor activated for the person that was attacked, very misleading.

I am more than happy to be a resource to provide further feedback on the PvP side of the app. You can PM me in game or continue to respond to this thread. I still use the browser for most actions but the app has the potential to be VERY convenient to use for PvP. Thank you again for your work on this.
