- The text in the game is a bit smaller, which will take some getting used to.
- The chat reload every time someone posts is annoying. Really gets on my nerves.
- For me, the game loads a lot SLOWER
- The entire game seems a good bit slower
- Battle is doable, but again; slower

This is on Firefox, and on my laptop. So perhaps Chrome will treat me better. I will post or edit that in later.

Also, perhaps my home PC will perform better as well. It has a a lot (a LOT) more power.

I'm also on Firefox and the game loads a lot slower for me as well. The tech tree was just a blank page when i tried to go in to it. I have switched back to the flash version now, might try HTML5 again later. I had a couple of other sites open in different tabs at the same time so i don't know if that would make a difference.

Using Chrome here, just noticed 2 things that are a bit annoying:

1- Can't copy as before the players name when opening a message with him (it takes it as an image and the only choice is copy image)
2- In the rankings tab, can't view a selected fellowship like before (you have to first go through a player to see his fellowship details..)

To be continued..

I'm using Firefox, and currently cannot get the game into full screen mode so will be switching back to flash.

Carrying on from Kaliartis's post, theres no right click options (on PC, tested on Chrome, Firefox and Opera) to go to forum or support in HTML5 mode, so its now extra clicks and longer mouse time to use the embedded forum button or support button...:(:D

Shouldn't all this be tested first on Beta and only launched live when everything is fixed? Are we the new Beta testers?

We've had it on Beta for a while now, seems that bringing it here is a bit like having a mobile version which doesn't do everything the PC version does - do first and then make small corrections later over a long period of time, so that when something happens we're all grateful to have it fixed and completely forgotten that it should have never been produced with all those problems to begin with!

I tried it with Opera but couldn't get the tree to load at which point I gave up, either its working properly and I'll use it or it isn't and I won't...

I must say that other than the flicker in chat it is working very well for me. I'm using it in Chrome. One thing though, when I use /who in chat I get one players name twice. Repeating the command to see if it's just a glitch and will disappear, still comes up double with the same players name. Don't know if it's always just one player, a certain player etc. I'll try it a few more times and report back what I find.

I just tried switching to HTML5 again and it still took ages for the game to load, still can't access the tech tree and it is very jerky when i move around my city so i am finished with HTML5 until it is sorted out.

Thanks for your feedback all!

THANK them for us pls @Muf-Muf
Will do!

The tech tree was just a blank page when i tried to go in to it.
We're aware of this happening with the Chrome browser in version 69. With version 70, it has already been resolved. Just update your Chrome to the latest version, and the problem shall be gone! :)

We've been testing the HTML5 client since mid June this year on Beta. In the 4 months since then, we've made major progress, and we now believe the client is performing well enough to be slowly rolled out to all of our versions (starting with the EN version yesterday). This will allow us to get even more feedback, and since the new client is completely optional, we believe this is not causing any issues for anyone who's not interested in the new client, while also offering it to those who would want to use it already. We're well-aware that it's not fully perfect yet, and that's exactly the reason that it is optional to use. :)

They'll soon be added! You'll already be able to enjoy them on Beta, and that also means they should reach the EN worlds with the next update already!
