NOTE: PLEASE Click HERE TO READ A LIST OF CURRENT FIXES AND KNOWN ISSUES BEFORE POSTING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN HTML5 BETA!



WELCOME TO THE HTML5 BETA LAUNCH! 

Commanders, 

Whether you’re here to learn more, or find out how you can help build the future of War Commander, we want to start by offering a huge “thank you” for all your help and support thus far. The entire War Commander team is incredibly excited to see our work and investment support the long-term success of this game. 

The HTML5 Beta Launch goes live with the 10.38 Update on Thursday, September 17th.


ABOUT THE SOFT LAUNCH


We know that there will still be plenty of kinks to iron out during this Beta Launch. That’s to be expected. While participation isn’t mandatory, the more commanders who join the HTML5 Beta Launch, the faster we will work through any issues that arise. By the time HTML5 Launches in full, we will all experience greater stability and performance. 


It bears repeating: If you do decide to participate in the Beta Launch… thank you. You’ll be helping to build the future of War Commander.  


OPTING IN




To opt-in to the HTML5 Beta Launch, all you have to do is click the “Enable HTML5 Client” button at the top of the game. You can also opt-out at any time during the Beta stage and return to using the Flash version easily by clicking the “Enable Flash Player” button at the top of the game. 




You’ll have the same account, same base, same platoons, same ID. Just a different technology running the game in your browser. 


REPORTING A BUG


If you notice a bug while participating in the HTML5 Beta release, it is critical that you submit a ticket to War Commander support. 


Please be sure to include:

  • Screenshots and/or video

  • Written steps as to how you encountered the bug so our team can easily reproduce the issue

  • Your User ID, and the User IDs of any other player(s) involved 

  • Your browser and what version number it is

  • The platform you are playing on


FAQS


What is a "Beta"?

“Beta” is a game industry term for any software still under development that is made available during its life cycle. Participants in the Beta are there to test, examine, and report any problems. Beta Testing allows developers and engineers to find problems and fix them prior to a full release.


Do I have to start using HTML5 now? 

Participation in the HTML5 Beta release is not mandatory, but we would love for you to participate. If you choose to participate, you can do so using the button to the left and above the game. You can turn off HTML5 and resume playing on Flash at any time. 

When HTML5 officially launches following the Beta release, Flash will no longer be available. 


What platforms will support the Beta Launch? 

The Beta Test will be available on all platforms. 


When is HTML5 officially launching? 

We will have a better idea of this as HTML5 Beta progresses, but our goal is to make HTML5 ready and available for full use before the end of 2020.


Have the system requirements changed? 

No! System requirements remain the same, although we STRONGLY recommend using Google Chrome. The beta has also only been tested on Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari, so any other browsers could see unintended instability. Additionally, you will experience better performance in the game if your computer, operating system, and browser version are up-to-date. You can find more info about system requirements for War Commander HERE. 


Where should I go to discuss the HTML5 Beta Launch? 

Our forums and discord! 

  • Discuss the HTML5 Beta Launch below this thread, or

  • Join our Discord HTML5 Discussion channel 


Thank you for playing War Commander, and for being a part of this exciting new chapter!

    cheap way to get your game tested and if you find issues plzs note they will not fix your dead toons or what ever you lose  
    every program, app, game ever made has a Beta stage .... EVERY ONE ... Microsoft, apple, linux, every program ever made has a beta stage

    back in the day, I beta tested America Online (before it was made available to the world) ... yes, I know it shows my age .... but my point is ...

    everything in the computing world, with NO exceptions goes through a beta stage

    I look forward to joining this one as soon as I can

    and remember, you do not have to participate in the beta, and stay on the Flash version if you want

    I am not a tech wiz so I am going to do all that I know how to do. I have been anxiously awaiting for this to come and rest assured I will do anything I can to help sort out the bugs.

    I'll be happy to participate in the beta test. I've seen this game go through many changes over the years, this one seems to be one of the most positive.

    it can work on moblie but the team isnt responsible for any bugs or glitches you encounter there as WC is not supported on phones, so play at your own risk

    Genburgerback. What is the difference if we participate in the beta. I have been playing for more than 10 years and I have sent hundreds of tickets on problems I encounter. So what is the difference if we all particate in the beta for html5 to help make the game better. I hope anyway.

    Is html5 the reason all my warpath honor and infamy was reset to 0? I asked on discord and one of the power hungry mods removed me from all war commander pages. Never cussed was never warned ! They just said you dont ask that here and poof I was gone. Been over 24 hours I still have no access to anyonbe on there! Why do you guys let people like that mod discord? Either way support responded and said ot could not have happened! It did I lost 20k honor and No blood thor almost no medals all my infamy and 1k gold! Is this what html5 will do to all of us loyal coiners?

    The game will be coming back up shortly, but the HTML5 Beta WILL NOT be live just yet. Some final elements are still being put in place first before we enable it. Luckily, it SHOULD NOT require an additional downtime to turn it on. We will announce when it is officially live.
