Update procedure unfair for Android users


As always if you require an update immediately it is unfair for Android users. Especially the ones in guilds lose valuable playing time against the iOS players. Also there are always confused players who doesn't know that it can take many hours for the update to show up in the Google Play Store.

Why can't you wait until the update is available for both platforms before you switch to the new version?

On top of that I lost again 40 Gold for the gas that I bought just before the maintenance break, because you didn't announce a schedule for the maintenance break.

If you are not able to find a fair update procedure you should not update the game during a challenge.

    Head over to www.getnomansland.com if your Google Play store hasn't refreshed yet.

    It's still under maintenance so doesn't work on iOS yet either, so you're not missing out.

    A device reboot will cause it to appear in your Play Store

    That usually does the trick.
    Certainly worked for me.

    Thanks, but www.getnomansland.com only redirects to the Google Play Store, so it doesn't help if the update is not available there yet. I tried that many times during the other major updates this year. But it is available now, so this problem is solved for today.

    I would still appreciate if you would cancel the challenge during the next update, as you apparently always require extended maintenance breaks. The midweek challenge is too short anyway, and the lost time due to the update makes it worse.

    have to agree, another reason why the constant 2 challenges is a problem, as the updates can take hours longer in android. (and using that link doesn't seem to help ;-(

    at bare minimum sensible option would be cancel the 3 day challenge when you know there is going to be a maintenance , so your not impacting that event, might help more people play a bit more outposts and help capture any issues as well, not least some valuable / needed xp gathering time!

    longer term ensuring there is a break between challenges also works better to allow you a weekly slot for upgrades and not critical patches..
