    RickinWaSt:

    Will we ever see a players availability options like was in the "Flash" version? It would make issues like this easier/more clear. 

    After the 01/27 Update, Champion posted the following...

    WGTChampion:

    We are aware of the matchmaking issues. We hoped to address it in the downtime last night but it didn't make it due to the complexity of the issue. 

    We hear your calls to change the friends list to be more like flash. This will take more time and isn't as high on our list as fixing matchmaking.

    Don

      They are all parts of the same features . They are not separate . Must be worked on and improved together .

    No.  They are separate issues, with different coding behind each.  That's why WGT will be working on them separately - matchmaking (bug fix) first and highest priority, then friends list (game enhancement) sometime after that.

      Maybe technically . And of course some of the coding is different . But to improve the invite system . Matchmaking and friends and who's online are all factors . Can't fix the matchmaking without players .

    I don't know anything about computer coding.

    On why we don't have blue (I'm available) and I cannot automatically read (I'm in a single play game, so we should not be invitable), I have discussed this before.  Won't repeat it.

    But it is also messed up on how we respond.

    We used to be able to give a reason for declining.  Say, for example, give me 3 minutes.

    Now the options are "I am in a game", "thanks but not at this time". or just "No".  Sounds like sorry, sorry and hell no.

    I am on 8th hole of a 9 hole round with daily cc xp pass in progress. being able to say "give me 3 minutes" would be a really nice option.  That happened to me tonight.

    Tom.

      Hopefully others will keep on repeating . As it will need to be repeated for a very long time .

      Matchmaking and friends and who's online are all factors .

      Which includes the colors for availability .

      The very important option to leave a message without having to accept or decline . Although I am aware that to leave a message . One has to technically decline . Saying this before someone corrects me .

      I don't care how many codes it takes . The techs better figure it out . As these basics should have been addressed years ago . In the Mobile platform . Trying to mimic flash . And certainly a priority when introducing PCEA .

    There is another fix needed- the amount of time to respond to a game invite- as it stands now, if you blink- the invite is gone. In the flash version, as I recall, a game invite stayed until you responded, OR until it was withdrawn. At least keep it open for more than 5 seconds!!

    It also seems that the response time issue is creating a bug of its own- ending current games unexpectedly? "Game ended without a winner" message- WTF?

    Without reading through 133+ pages...

    Is there any timeline on having a Random game setting every taking place again?

    I still cant get a game going, and to tell you the truth, I am tiring of solo tourneys and those super duper coin games. Rah rah. 

    I have had to go to a 10 credit sleeve of balls now too, because when I look at the buy-in page for credits, it clearly states to play Match play and Skins games. 

    However, I can't get a game going in the 'Random' setting still after weeks of playing the new app. 

    So thats it in a nutshell. 

    btw, good rounds can be found in their recycled balls. 

    Thanks.

      Yes . Something from the past that has re emerged . It is on the inviter . To be aware and considerate . To realize when he or she clicks that invite on and back off . That a person on the other end just got a teasing flash of an invite . With no chance to respond .

      That " 5 second invite " has happened to me twice lately .

      It is now being reported that when that occurs . There actually is a winner .

      No mention in the previous 133 pages . Or anywhere else . I am in the same boat .

    No timeline, but last month WGTChampion said they're working on it in this post.

    If I can make a suggestion... bring that up to your CC owner.  I'm sure he'd love to arrange an AS game with somebody who can shoot a -12 (60) @ Pebble Beach in high winds with a 10 credit ball ­čśü  

    I also see that you're on Discord.  I sent you a link to a Discord server where you may be more successful in finding multi-player games.

    Good luck!

    Yes thanks Sam.

    I am aware of those avenues, have not as of yet taken up BP's offer on discord alternatives, it is an option yes.

    But it just doesn't much make me happy in doing so. Hardcore old school 3clicker.

    I'm 'tryin' to change. Get there eventually.    ':->
