Per popular demand, we introduce a rework to the Online Play in Eight-Minute Empire!
Its goal is to improve the quality of life during online play by adding some much asked for features and functionalities. The changes are as follows:
Asynchronous play – an inactive player will be removed by the server after 48 hours without making a move. No more unfinished games limbo!
When creating a room a maximum amount of players can be set.
The games will start automatically once the maximum amount of players is reached. The creator of a room no longer has to manually start the game.
Synchronous play – the timer has been reworked. Now a player will be removed from the game only if they go offline (willingly or due to a disconnect) for three minutes.
Fixed a bug that caused some players not seeing certain rooms from the Open Rooms list.
Soon – possible cross-platform online play with the Nintendo Switch players (27.08.2019).
