We have made a decision to decommision the Silverlight client on the 7th of October this year. This was a hard decision, but a truly necessary one. The main reason is that it is just not feasible for us to maintain both servers and clients in the long term. So we decided to fully concentrate and commit ourselves to polish the HTML5 version as much as possible in the following month. It is already perfectly playable and everyone is invited to try it out. In fact, it is in your own interest, since after the 7th of October, you won't be able start new games in the Silverlight client anymore. So please, please let us know of any breaking bugs that might affect the game experience for you! From our side, we'll do our best to address all the feedback.
Couple of main points:
- You won't be able to create new games in the Silverlight version from October the 7th
- You would still be able to finish any games started before the 7th
- Until implemented in HTML5, both map & scenario editors would be accessible via the Silverlight version
Please post your feedback regarding the HTML5 version in HTML5 bug reports and HTML5 discussion forums.
