Create a time-limit on Captcha


Recommended Posts

I agree with this 100%. Especially because I'm operating with fairly slow internet more than I'd like. This leads to the Captcha server not connecting and returning an error message regularly, and of course the problem of Captcha verification taking so long that my fighting capabilities are diminished. This issue in particularly severe around day change, in which seconds can make the difference between a individual war (or multiple wars) going my way or not.

Please fix this in some way, it is by far the most annoying thing in this game. I understand that we need to catch bots, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of ACTUAL players.

and yes, my opponent was able to run 2 attacks on me in the time it took to do the captchas. I know other players have been upset about this too. 
 

thanks for reading alex and others o/

Stop using those war declaration bots and this wouldn't be happening. Everyone knows you use bots and it's not actually you declaring wars. You're making the problem worse by complaining.

BUMPING because I’ve made similar threads and have yet to get an answer 

 

@ss23 @Alex please respond

ss23 helps out with server security and hosted, he's not a game development admin. Please don't ping him.

We already have time limits on the captchas, just not in certain places (like war declaration) that are otherwise highly susceptible to scripting. If there was a time limit on those, then people would certainly use auto war-declaration bots/scripts.

what if you only had to do a captcha on the war declaration and not have to do it for individual attacks for 6 turns or something like that?

To be honest, that's always the case, and true of every online service. If you play any online game, the player with the lower latency (ping) is always going to have a slight advantage.

reCAPTCHA v3 when? 

reCAPTCHA v3 doesn't really work. I've tried it in some limited applications, and it essentially just tells people they are bots and to try again. It's a much more frustrating user experience than v2.

v3 would be great if it weren't for the volume of false positives.
