Samurai Wars 21 mini-FAQ

Here’s kind of a mini FAQ of some of the most common questions I’ve seen in the game. For game play tips, see the previous post on Samurai Wars Tactics.

– How do I change my name and picture?

iOS: You have to sign in using Game Center. Open the Settings and go to Game Center and enter your Apple ID and password. You can then edit your Game Center profile and change your nickname. Additionally, you can open the Game Center app and tap the profile picture in order to change it.

Android: Sign in with Google Play Games using your Google+ account. Change your profile name and picture with your favourite browser at http://plus.google.com.

– Who is who?

You are always the top-left player and your units are always blue. Enemy players are listed to the right and have red units. Allies are listed below you and have green units. If you are spectating, players to the left have green units and the right ones red. (Todo: improve so you can better see who is who when there are many players.)

– What does “gg” mean?

It’s short for “good game” and just means “thanks for the game”.  Other acronyms are: gl – “good luck”, gj – “good job”, wp – “well played”. For a list of common abbreviations, see: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Glossary_of_textspeak

Samurai Wars update 21

The iOS version is now live, Android version to follow during next week. I expect to be doing some server tuning the next couple of days. I’ve already found some glitches and will continue to work on fixing whatever comes up. (Note: the leaderboard has temporarily been disabled in this update. There will be a unified rating across iOS and Android to be released in the coming weeks.)

[edit]

Apparently there’s currently a server side glitch that is causing occasional server restarts and consequent client crashes. We have top men working on it right now.

[edit]

Alright, the problem with server restarts has now been fixed.
