Introducing: Prestige Ranks

Hi Catanians,

Today we'd like to introduce you to the first of the major changes in the upcoming release of Catan Universe 1.8.0.

Starting with 1.8.0 Prestige Ranks will replace the ELO Number as the most important visible indicator for a player's skill level.

The leaderboard will get divided into 6 different Prestige Ranks starting from Bronze to Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and to top it all of Grandmaster!



In order to determine your initial Prestige Rank, we will take your ELO of the day of the update as well as 5 additional placement matches.
Our main goal with this change is to take the edge of if a single game goes badly.

Please also keep in mind that we are making big changes under the hood that should drastically reduce the amount of games dropped due connections issues so loosing a game because of that should be a thing of the past.

We are eager to hear your feedback and we'll see you on the island!

We are working on big things: Catan Universe 1.8.0 Announcement



Hi Catanians,

Big changes ahead! In this post we want to inform you what we are currently working on and how it will affect online play in Catan Universe.

Catan Universe has been growing a lot since its release in 2017 and we needed to create more efficient systems to balance the server load especially in times of high demand.

So our developers have been working for the past several weeks on a complete overhaul of the multiplayer systems of Catan Universe. We are talking about timer, stability, matchmaking, preventions of desyncs and so on.
We are confident these changes will lead to a significant boost of the online experience for all of our Catanians.

Once we started to rework the multiplayer systems we decided that we could add new and requested features from our community as well!
We will share the details of these changes on all our socials and in the game during the upcoming weeks!

We are aiming for a release of Catan Universe 1.8.0 during the next few weeks!

See you next time and have fun on the island!
