June 2020
19 June 2020
  • Added a tooltip over the date of a gamelog to show the full date. (@gereon77)
  • The tooltip over games in the Games page will show the owner of ongoing games, to still allow High Members to moderate before the system goes into a full hostless system. (@gereon77)
8 June 2020
  • Added a "personal note" tab in-game that allows players to save notes about the game.
  • Fix some typos in texts. (@gereon77)
  • A tooltip in the "Games" page will now show the owner of games in lobby. The owner is not shown for an ongoing game because the system is transitioning to a model where a running game is "hostless", i.e. where every decision is done by a vote. At the moment, the only thing the owner of a game can do after it has started is switching to PBEM. It should soon be done by a vote.
3 June 2020
  • Reduced the number of fetched messages of the public chat at the load of the game. This should reduce the lengthy load time that may arise when long-lasting games have a lot of messages in the public channel.
  • Added a tooltip over the time of a message containing the full date of the message
2 June 2020
  • Fixed a bug where after the Bidding phase of a Wildling attack was over, the next Wildling card was shown in the Wildling strength tooltip for people who had seen the card thanks to the Raven dominance token's power.

  • Corrected the Wildling descriptions shown in the tooltip on the Wildling strength icon. (@gereon77)
26 May 2020
  • Increased the white glow around selectable units and orders, in order to make it easier to see which units can be picked. (@srr013)
  • Added a notification on the Games page showing whether there are new private messages in the game.
  • In the Lobby screen, if "Randomize houses" is selected, the UI will change to hide the name and the icons of the houses, making it more clear that you don't pick your house. (@gereon77)
19 May 2020

  • Added a tooltip (over the number of controlled castles & strongholds of a house) displaying the number of controlled land areas. (@gereon77)

7 May 2020
  • Units on the map will sometimes be displayed on 2 lines, if the width of the region is too small, in order to improve the readability and reduce confusion on whether a unit belongs to a region or an other. (@gereon77)
5 May 2020
  • Fixed multiple wording issues in game logs (@gereon77)
  • Fixed a bug where a footman not part of the attacking army could be upgraded with Renly Baratheon's ability.
3 May 2020
  • Added a small icon next to a player's name indicating whether they are currently connected.

15 August 2020
  • UI improvements for a better mobile experience: The map scrollbar can be toggled as a user setting. Tracks and houses column now have auto width to avoid wordwraps which lead to a strange view.
