Server Migration on the Weekend 29-30 OCT 22

 

Happy Halloween

General Info Server Migration

Dear Users,
Patchwork is one of our oldest games… actually the second we produced since the founding… and we are really happy with the new features patchwork will have. Still there is one downside of the game migration that we plan.
Since we have a publisher for Patchwork and transferred our app to them years ago we are not able to keep the keychain ID for iOS users and In addition we also have a problem with android users that have a google+ ID. These results into different depths of account details that we can migrate.

Running Games & Ranking

We won’t migrate any running online games (ranked / friendly). So if you have any games that you wish to finish, please do this before the weekend.

We will not proceed with the current ranking any more. That means the old ranking list will only appear as fixed information in the profile stats and we will also make it available on this homepage.

The new ranking system will no longer work with ELO but will be based on the Glicko system.

 

This is how it works

The next Patchwork update is a server migration client. That means by loading the game you will log in into our new server. If you own Viticulture or Gaia Project you will log in into your already existing account. If you are new to the server you will create an account with your existing username. If your Username was taken already by another user it will get numbers on its end. Don’t worry you can rename your account.

 

What will be migrated?

PC / Steam
friends / stats / achievements

iOS
no account information

android
friends / stats / achievements (depending if the user had a google + account)

Please keep in mind that friends can only appear if they also successfully migrated to the new server!

Status-Update

Patchwork is one of our first games back when we founded DIGIDICED. It will be number 3 on our new server. The updated client is already finished for testing.

Status-DLC & new content

The new client we developed for the server migration has new standard skin modes for the background and also offers the original texture for the tiles. We implemented the rebalanced tiles costs by Tysen Streib and there will be new original skins available in the future as well.

Status-Server Migration

Patchwork has a server migration client and we will have an intern test migration. As soon as this does not reveal any problems we will the official date of the actual migration. 

Status-Mainmenu Update

Patchwork mainmenu 1.0
(2.0 comes with the migration)

Status-PC UI 

We have an updated PC UI version now. No mobile port. (comes with the migration version)
