Can’t connect (doesn’t even give a choice when the game first loads.) On Android 9.0, Samsung Galaxy S9+.
On my Chromebook it gives the options at the start up of the game, but I can’t connect from the settings or works map links.
Are you sure about that?
It’s doing some weird shit for me where it knows I’m playing the game but it won’t let me sign into my account from the game. So though at least a few of these achievements have been done. There’s nothing telling the account that I have completed them.
4.6 has broken Google Play login for me, after it had been working for ages. LG G7 running Android 9.0. I use two different Gmail accounts on my phone, but only one of those for GoW. Sometimes but not always, when I launch GoW, it will prompt me for which Gmail address to use, and then it will login.
A related issue is that when I exit the game from the menu, it leaves the client running in the background. If I then try to run GoW again without first removing the client from memory, the game will auto-close to the desktop. A second attempt to run GoW will launch normally, at least until it gets to the Google Play login.
Update to 4.6. When launching the game, there’s this screen of Google Play Games loading and it seems it has connected and linked to the game. But then (and again), going to settings → accounts and clicking at “Sign in” (should’ve been “Sign Out”…) shows the same behavior: some loadings and a timeout message as before. Version 4.6 hasn’t fixed the problem yet.
Lol… On my Chromebook I can’t exit the game and restart it again without it crashing. I’ve just learned to go do something that takes 5 minutes when I start the game up, let it crash, and it’ll work after. I tried to have issues like it resolved before but it was like asking someone who speaks a different language to fix your car. A lot of time and energy just to have the matter still not fixed due to failure to communicate properly.
Android 8.1 on nokia 8. Also tested on android 9 on Nokia 8.
Game works fine, Google play login doesn’t work in gow only. Get server timeout message trying to connect. Both button on world map, and log in on account settings.
It does pop up account select for Google play games. Time out is after that. During start up of game same select pop ups. But never logs in. No time out message, but not logged in once game finished loading.
Same results on on different connections. And to re-iterate, Google play games login and all related features works fine in every other game I’ve tried. Only GoW is having issues.
This doesn’t seem like a unique issue at all. So I get that the standard template is to get all the information available as possible.
But it just causes people more time to report an issue that is literally already “known”.
Whoever said or thought it was fixed was mistaken.
I would happily do a video for shits and giggles but the the recording software stops on my phone because it registers that I’m leaving the game to connect to my Google account. And it can only record in game stuff.
I have a ZENFONE 3, Android 9.0 and every time I launch the game I get a textbox from google play asking me who I am and I have to click my google account (I only have 1), this started happening after I installed 4.6
It’s only blocking achievements from being unlocked.
But I’m unaware of any people that are prevented from playing the game.
My apologies if I misunderstood the original post. But I thought it was just about linking the Google account to the gems of war account. Not issues linking gems of war to the devices.
I’m sure this isn’t an urgent issue to resolve. It’s just one that mistakenly checked off as fixed when it hasn’t been. But Cyrup updated the known issues 4 hours ago so it’s now on there correctly.
We thought we had fixed the issue but it’s popping up again. This is something that other games ocassionally experience, so we are doing what we can to resolve it with the next update for a second time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Yeah, I’m glad I coulod clarify. We are concerned that some players might not be able to access the game, and are trying to get as much info as possible, hence asking for device, etc.
