Okay, everything’s set for a maintenance check on the new matchmaking system.Not only will the new system be better at searching for opponents, but you’ll also be able to launch a search while still browsing the app with no need to wait!
And meanwhile just a small update that we’re sure will thrill all our long-term players: advertising for UR is back on track! Happy gaming to you all and see you soon!
You’ll be notified once it's all sorted!
You should test better your updates before released, this one is not working properly
I really don´t know how it works exactly, but other games have a "Beta app" and a "beta-tester program", avoiding or at least, diminishing things like this happen, if you can implement one, i think would be fine
It must be very difficult to maintain and update a 13 year old game, I'm sure the codebase is very messy at this point.
That said, an update to the matchmaking system should be an improvement to the matchmaking system, if it doesn't work properly or worse than it was, do not push the update until it is entirely functional and intuitive.
Players would rather wait a bit longer for a properly functioning update, than to have a broken update quickly.
The response to this problem is also inadequate, although it is of course unknown what is even causing this issue, how bad the problem is, and how easy it is to fix, however I suspect the problem was already identified before the update was released, considering the length of the maintenance downtime. Why not roll back and release the update next week? An outdated version is better than a broken one.
Anyway, either fix it very quickly or roll back the update, I definitely recommend the first option if possible, you guys are messing with one of the most crucial aspects of the program, which should not be taken this lightly.
Good luck guys.
