in this week's developer update we want to talk about the progress we made last week and what you can expect this week.
Last week Dec 5th - Dec 11th
Our team focussed on implementing and testing the client update, which concentrates on matchmaking. The clients will get more time to process matchmaking requests and therefore they should be more reliable. We tested the changes on all the platforms we offer Catan Universe on. We also added multiple fixes to the backend that are also focused on matchmaking itself.
Our team also started to work on improvements for the online matches themselves. We saw them being slow, unresponsive, and overall lacking performance causing to often display a “reconnecting” message.
This week Dec 12th - Dec 18th
The builds for the clients have been submitted to the stores but unfortunately, the GooglePlay Store hasn´t approved the version yet.
In our effort to make a noticeable change for all of our Catanians, we will have to wait until the CU client was approved by Google before moving forward with the release. We will let you know once the clients are ready to download.
Our team on the other hand finished their work on the backend improvements for the matches we mentioned above. These changes will be published today on Dec13th. We will monitor the changes closely throughout the rest of the week.
Please note that when we publish these backend changes your running match might restart.
