Can you release it worldwide for all existing players?
I'm level 20 from playing on personal settlement and gold settlement. I would love to see how the game turned out.
Probably….too much Pogo Events….smarties😡
really really sad news.
Good concept, great graphics, a lot of great game mechanics, so what happend?? Investor being too impatiant??. Too many game mechanics implemented too fast, resulting in a messed up code?? Remember we are only in Beta, and for many of us ( I speculate here) it seems like the game lately was forced to make income and that just short circuit the game!! A classic clash between Dev team's and the group of people in suit's.
I know sometimes it must be hard to read the forum's, but hey, it's just because we think the game was fun, different to other Niantic games (played them all) and that's why sometimes WE as a community got impatiant. We wanted to play this fun game!!
Thank you for letting us tryout your ideas. Some where great, some where not so great, but that's life. All the best for you all on the team.
For all others: See you out there on the Ingress playboard.. Make things blue :-)
Maybe was due to NianticLabs announcement about their new Lightship platform just a couple of weeks ago.
Ingress has always been my priority. But was good to try something new.
Interested in Ingress- come join the a Enlightened make the world Green! 🐸🐸
I’m sorry the game has to end. Just a question here - if I would like to refund my gold but i dont have a pogo account, can i have it refunded to hpwu or ingress?
Despite all of my disappointment regarding the canning of this game, I find the offer to transfer gold balance to PoGo, and only PoGo, offensive.
I spent good money on this game, and you accepted it. Quite obviously, I USED that gold to expand my backpack and golden settlement. I didn't sit on it. Therefore, that gold is no longer there.
I think that you need to offer to transfer all gold PURCHASED during this game to be transferred, and to any account you nominate. I don't play PoGo, but my daughter does and may want it.
Even better, especially for Niantic, would be the offer to transfer the PURCHASED value to any other Niantic game. That should be either a nominated account, or a new account of your own. That would at least promote the idea of continuing with Niantic. I might be interested in Ingress, for example. That has got to be at least a partial win for Niantic, Shirley?
Quite frankly, if you don't, this will permanently sour my personal view of both Niantic and Nerd Ninja. It will also make me very, very dubious about supporting ANY game in such a manner again. I don't think I'm alone in this, either.
Please do the right thing. I'm not even asking for my money back, although I believe I'm within my rights to do so.
I'm going to make this a feedback item. Please up vote it if you agree.
Oh that’s sad it’s shutting down, I wonder what happened that let the devs come to that decision. Catan:we is more fun that hpwu imo and I never played the board game.
and you have pogo diverging from the source material with powering up with stardust and the safari zone simulator
Hey, Thank You!!
For the opportunity to be involved in the testing and exploration of something new!!
Just to let you know it got me out and exploring my neighbourhood far more than Pokémon even got me back into running. SO HARD to find settlements and other players. But, that was also intriguing.
looking forward to your next adventure.
That's sad and disappointing. I've really enjoyed the game, loved to get out and go for a walk - became much more familiar with my surroundings and had a lot of fun levelling up settlements and golden settlements. I really love the board game but loved this too as clearly related but different. Had a few issues with the latest update but they were resolved within a couple of days and always expect a glitch here and there. Was enjoying working how to incorporate the new features in to my strategies.... it's going to leave a gap in my daily routine. Really not interested in Pokemon. I will play to the end but will take this opportunity to thank all the developers and players for the experience.
maybe the team can be sent to Ingress now ? it needs more manpower.
Sad to see that you shut down Catan WE
Also, a sunset at 7am is a really bad wording/timing... @CATANdominik@CATANFiona
Is it possible to have a medal/badge in Ingress & Pokémon GO for those who did help to beta test this?
Something with the logo on saying about exploration? Just as a reminder of the game that never got to fully be.
Could somebody trip over the "Release worldwide" switch when leaving the office?
Can I make a suggestion to lift the daily cap on RP trade in? I was saving for level 4 buildings we'll never see now, so would love to trade the lot in and go out with a bang!
I'm sure I will miss a view like this 😢
May I suggest a possibility for someone to buy the IP and work currently done so far?
Release the IP and work done into an Open Source project?
You still own the IP, but the source and assets be made open source, so that fans of the game can continue the development.
In either case, the idea is to preserve Catan World Explorers, as the idea of losing all that time, effort, assets and code from the past couple years would be a terrible waste.
That's for sure.
Thanks for creating this game, and the hard work the devs and all other which worked on this game.
Catan was one of the Niantic Games, which i loved to play. One point where the quests the other part was the seasons feature with changing positions of villages, so that if i don't have time to play a season, i can join the next season and their is no feeling like i'm falling behind. I played all the other niantic games but they don't catched me like this game, although i was most time the only one here which walked through the streets and build villages to city and so on.
Through crowfunding, a group of players and people interested in this project would be happy to take over the project in order to be able to make CatanWE libe longer and possibly continue its development. Let us know what is feasible for you Niantic and Nerd Ninjas.
Remember november 2020 the Update then. I bet from that Point on Things went in the wrong Direction.
This has definitely shattered my idea of ever playing anything from Niantic, good luck keeping players if you continue taking franchises and discarding them because they are "unprofitable" after a minimal beta release.
I feel that it was the best Niantic game because it actually makes things different and is not repeated content with different graphics.
@CATANFiona I know this might sound odd but I really want to buy gold ... For tokens and for fables ... I only have 1000 gold and thought I would have more time to add gold before the gold was cut off.
Are the fables set to easy? We had a couple of close ones today and didn't think we got the rolls in time.
This is sad... I first hat to sleep over it and let it sink in... Maybe it is because I don't know the board game, but I think that this would have been a really good addition to the other Niantic games. I especially loved the idea of playing in regions and seasons that reset.
It was AND IS a great honor for me to be part in this beta and I think there will be a great emptyness in me afterwards.... I will stick with you until the end. And maybe, if there will be another adventure, I'd love to be part of it.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WORK
You may wish to update this question.
Thanks for the game, too bad it was scrapped. I enjoyed it. And it inspired my old mom to go walking again. I got my resource limit beyond the cap, so I'm declaring myself winner of the game 😉 Hope you guys will make another great game for us.
I got it to 220,so do I win? :)
I tried with the dice games and buildings, but it didn't work unfortunately.
Me too @Baggs very sad. Playing hard till the end to send off the game well. Just got my season quest done.
