    Gameplay is changing much. I have impression it's quicker and more of shots are finding their way to the pocket than in old version. I think it was really ok for mobile devices, but PC can have something more intense.

    Welcome to the forum @Mateusz.

    And thank you for the game, how nice to see someone join the forum only a few minutes after randomly meeting me on the tables :)

    Here's a new and annoying little bug for you guys, anyone else had this before ?

    Spent a minute or two waiting for an opponent and watching the spinning wheel spinning, until finally got fed up and left the 9ball mode, went off to play some 1 on 1 instead and suddenly found myself unexpectedly dragged back into a 9ball game without warning !

    The game is frozen, so what happens to my coins and who gets the win?

    I waited about 15 minutes, refreshed the game and it gave me the win.

    I've had that happen and what nanny describes. On your situation i didn't wait 15min but about 3min and then refreshed and same thing. I had not lost any coins. Another time, i had MORE coins so it obviously gave the win to me.

    Nanny, i've been saying for a WHILE there's either a "hack" that causes lag, or they are trying to browse, download files, something huge that will maybe trip the connection between you and them. I had 4 in a row from Indo yesterday do it but i was TRYING to chalk it up to "maybe internet there was bad today"........but it sure seems awful coincidental doesn't it?

    OMG I really, really hope they haven't found a way to cheat in the new version already. One of the reasons I have never played high tiers in the old version is because it's full of those dodgy dudes.

    Like i said, i think new version IS "cheat proof" so far. I think it's an exploitation of lag via some means. I just know after EVERY shot against some of them, i have the "waiting for opponent's response, please do not exit the game" or whatever it says....... and SOMETIMES, they've timed me out with that. Most times shot clock pauses too but i MADE the suggestion because i HAVE seen a couple times where when it comes unfroze, even though shot clock wasn't moving during pause, it "catches up" and i'm out of time already....... I've learned to just HOLD my cursor and shot right where they will be so when it releases i need just draw back and shoot

    and i know it offends some but it's HONESTLY said, that it was paki, and indo players......i think ONE, from egypt did that to me once.......or else those poor folks are on dialup still.......two cups and a string? LOL :D

    Actually David, having played literally hundreds and hundreds of friendlies with guys and gals from that part of the world over the past 6+ years I can say with experience that their internet is horribly unreliable.

    Not sure as to the answer to this, so can anyone throw some light on it for us.

    A new forum member came on yesterday asking if we could see the legendary cue he was using in the old version. I havent seen anyone mention the fact that those could be used in the old version?

    Is it possible for this to happen, or has somebody found a way to do it?

    As i say, i dont know the answer, just looking for some clarification on it, cheers.

    I've posted on it before Coolocker. You don't get the rare, epic, or legendary in the old v . I use the fanatic cue because it's in both and i don't have to remember to go back and switch if i switch v's. When i'd come from new v to old v with Excalibur in hand, it would give me the multimillionaire cue when i got to old V and didn't even NOTICE, lol, til it said "recharge cue for 450k?" (or 400k, whatever it is, more than i wanted to spend :D ).

    you get hourly coins in game, and daily coins in email if you are below like 125 rank or something. i think that is when mine stopped and i think i READ that somewhere.......whether on forums or in game i don't remember. But depending on your VIP status, is how many hourly coins, or daily coins they send link in email for. I DO miss those emails.......lol...... :D

    Minutes ago, I had a weird situation.

    I wanted to play in Las Vegas, but after a while of waiting for opponent, I started a game in Tokyo. I'm not sure whether it's a bug or you just got automatically relocated to "lower" room, when there is no anybody available to play.

    it's exactly that. if no one responds in that tier you're waiting and spinning in within i think 30seconds it matches to a player in the next tier down next

    Game is not working properly today.

    I can't hit shots with full power, nothing happens when I try.

    Using the cursor keys for spin makes the whole screen move up and down

    It takes so long to find a new opponent that I have to refresh the game to find one.

    Has there been an upgrade today ? If there has, it has failed miserably.

    I have been playing and nothing is wrong with mine. I hope they put arrows up and down on those chat only.
