This probably means it's your opponent's turn at the moment Dwalend - the game is sometimes wrongly displaying who's turn it is due to the assignment of which player is attacker and which is defender when players match.

We're working on a fix for this which will be included in the next update.

Thanks, and apologies for any confusion or inconvenience caused.

Thanks, looking forward to the fix.

We have made a few more turns progress in the current game. Including figuring out who's going to win.

The real bug you should be complaining about is rolling just one 5 the whole game - INF vs tread - in turn 7. I've been actively avoiding giving you opportunities, but one of those 1:1 shots should have connected with the MB last turn.

Sounds like an accurate model of the game to me. During my demo games last week, I watched endless misses happen in both games. The one player couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat.

Unfortunately, bad streaks of rolls are reality.

Keeping my opponent from rolling the dice is a favorite tactic - you used it on me with that SHVY in that last game of Breakthrough.

I really thought it'd played out last turn. I'm overdue for a bad streak in my game with selenite.

As said before, that's the most accurate part of the simulation.

I'm not worried about streaks at this point. I don't think you need to hit anything to make it to the CP at this point. Nice work maneuvering to have the double crater split my line. I should've dropped back to avoid that.

Thanks. I didn't expect to get far on the west flank. I'd just hoped to pick off a GEV, then draw your tanks through the craters before your tanks rolled up and stripped the MB and M3 away.

Selenite and I finished our game - first time for me to get all the way though with a real opponent! Thanks!

Jake - at what point do you want to hear about minor bugs? (Like Selenite's name only showing up intermittently vs "Unknown Player?.)

Overall, are things looking better at least?

Yep, game went fine.

I noticed my log of previous games has been wiped, so that game is the only one listed now.
