Terminal Refresh
The largest update to terminal yet, we are adding a few features and doing a complete visual and UX overhaul of terminal.

  • Most of the pages on terminal have gotten a significant visual overhaul, in line with the S3 homepage update.
  • All aspects of the Playground experience should be significantly improved.
  • Broadcast mode lets you (and us) ‘fullscreen’ the terminal gameplay with fewer UI elements.
  • New post-game summary with stats and heat maps at the end of games
  • Numerous behind the scenes improvements to the terminal backend and frontend that pave the way for future features
  • Dozens of small tweaks and improvements

Known Issues
There are a few issues we have noticed so far, but we did not want to delay the release any further. We will be patching these up in coming weeks.

  • The leaderboard tabs for previous seasons are not accessible
  • There is no leave competition button
  • Losing a playground game by hand vs some bosses occasionally causes you to die in real life
  • There are some visual issues related to tiered competitions.

Thoughts and Feedback
This was a huge endeavor, and we want things to be perfect. If you notice anything you dislike or would prefer to be changed, we would love to hear any and all feedback in the comments below! I’ll add a list of our next priorities based on player feedback.

  • Fix competition pages
  • Re-add download replay button
  • Improvements related to match summaries
  • Debug not appearing in hand vs algo games
  • Some post-game stats are innaccurate

Um, die in real life? Should we be scared and running for the hills?


#5

It seems pretty rare, I tried a few dozen times and was only able to replicate it once, so you should be fine


#6

Looks great! Although competition pages (for an individual competition) are showing up blank


#7

Woaahh it’s so different! I just watched one of my replays and realized I had gained zero insight into my algo’s flaws because I was too busy admiring the new graphics and UI :rofl:
:+1:


#8

Ill make sure this is fixed tommorow. Was working on the test environments, so probably some small oversight


#9

Has the download replay button been removed? and if not where can I find it?


#10

Nice updates, I like the new look of things, however I can’t seem to find the debug logs anywhere (in the playground). Either I’m blind or they’re gone?


#11

I like the new style! However I find very hard to read the matches summary, especially defeats because of the colors


#12

Scroll down! Seems to be working on our end


#13

Hmm, nope doesn’t work for me. :slightly_frowning_face:


#14

Are you in the new fullscreen mode? There is a button in the top right corner you can click to toggle fullscreen. What are you doing to reach the playground? What are you using for player 1 and 2?


#15

Yes, I’m in fullscreen, I know about the button, I am playing against one of my algos by hand.


#16

Ahh, I can replicate it now. It looks like if either player is by hand it is hidden, rather than both players as it should be.

I expect you will be able to see it in an algo vs algo game


#17

Yeah the grey in the matches summary does blend in with the background a bit.

Also, would it be possible with the new layout to take advantage of all that horizontal space and finally display the full names of opponents in the match history? Many people’s name length is long enough that the version numbers are cut off and I have to play each match or use the rank score to figure out which version it was against.

Is it like this for everyone or can I change a display ratio somewhere?


#18

ehhmm, nope still nothing

Edit:
ok, it works for algo vs algo,


#19

I am a bit skeptical about some of the post game stats:
For example here the cores on board and the bits lost to decay


#20

Looks like a rounding error on bits lost and definetly a significant issue with cores on board, ill check how those are bing calculated


#21

#22

Is there a way to view the completed matches in a competition in the new layout?
