Can't believe there isnt more interest in this. I found the game as it was preinstalled on my Tesla and got addicted to it!
Haha I go through phases of playing with friends of mine, one in particular, and then going away from it. I used to like playing random games online but they changed up the system now so you can only play on a small map. I think the intention was to reduce the wait to find an opponent, but it wrecked it for a lot of people so my sense is that they've lost a lot of users with the change. Wouldn't mind only the wait was never that long, and it's still the same now.
You can play on 2,4,9 or random, and you can change the size of the square. It's in advanced settings. I prefer the 1vs1 on small map myself
I just checked and you're right, but that means they've gone back to the way it was before the previous update, because they had gotten rid of all those options. That's great though, glad they did because it was a terrible step backward!
I should say though they still only give the "live game" and "24 hours" options for time. I'm a big fan of the 5 minute move games, because you could do something other than watching the game if you had to like checking the spuds or going to the toilet, whereas the live game thing you can very quickly run out of time and miss your turn.
