    What are WGT's plans for 2020, when Flash goes EOL?

    Are there plans to move to HTML5?

    Good questions, next question please! *grins*

    A few possible ways to get answers:

    1) Go to their SF offices and ask.

    2) Get yourself an upper echelon job. Continue with 1)

    3) Buy a minority share of the company. Continue with 1)

    Good luck!

    Just because Adobe is ending support for flash, doesn't mean all browsers everywhere will just stop running it.  IMO, the game will run just fine after that infamous EOL flash day.

    This infamous eol flash day you're talking about, is it like today?

    cos I can't get into the game for like 2 hours now. 

    Flash is blocked.

    EOL flash just means there will be no new versions. sites will still use it, it will continue to run using older versions(many of us do that now)Some browsers will continue to not let it run(without jumping thru hoops)Probably some other browsers will stop letting it run.

    Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

    IIRC, they have been asked before and WGT does not answer - probably because they don't need to.

    It your up to date browser doesn’t allow flash use an older version. My go to browser is 3 or 4 years old and even though it is Chrome based does not use pepper flash. Many older versions work much better for WGT than their upto date counterparts. 

    You should be able to find an older version of your browser at filehippo.com.

    IIRC, they said "We'll do the right thing, and in time."

    Anyway, they wouldn't give their business secrets away and - Heaven forbid! - make themselves accountable concerning an action and a schedule.

    Just remembered that about a year or so ago WGT sent a survey about playing WGT through Steam. Maybe they are working on moving it to Steam.

    I wouldn't mind that, I have steam that I use for other games.
