Sadly I am not very interested in merging this with FB,
And I actually wrote the code from computer, it still failed (same result)
tried it twice, both times it just failed to acknowledge that I even exist with those credentials
@franciscusmagnum You should disable the gyroscope. The developers should have it disabled. It kind of works for some users but causes a number of nasty bugs in the game. (Things like you loosing a battle half way through for no reason). Disable it and leave it off until you hear an all clear from the devs. :)
The devs did respond to this an hour or two after the open beta started. They're aware of the problem and they plan to fix it today, according to their Twitter.
The point of an open beta is test the game for bugs on a larger scale. We, as beta testers, should report our findings and suggestions to the developers. Sometimes things go wrong unexpectedly, and that's what happened here. As frustrating as it may be, please be patient with them. It's only been 24 hours. They will need time to address everything.
When I want support for a game I don't go to social media for it because that is not what social media is supposed to be for.
Exactly. Social media should be mainly a marketing platform, not the customer support service. Nothing wrong in replying to questions there, that's always good advertisement to any company when they are actively participating.
However, I have seen a lot of "send us a message in FB" posts when people had problems with alpha keys for example... It always made me curious what would the solution be if the person in question did not have a Facebook account and didn't want one? No, don't tell me they should send a message in Twitter either.
I have quite a few friends who aren't really into social media, they have no accounts whatsoever in any of those services. How would they stay up-to-date or get proper support if the platform that is available to everyone, regardless of their interest in social media, is nearly completely forgotten? Keeping these forums as the primary platform doesn't mean they should stop using social media; instead, they would work very well together if organized properly.
