How To Avoid Unrevengeable Opponents With A New Build


Does Apple not allow you to pick whether to do an update right away or delay it? I certainly don’t have an iPhone (although my wife does), so I’ve never checked this.

The question would not be whether you could accelerate the download on Apple, but whether you could delay it.

We’re not talking about doing an APK download from a 3rd party site on Android (or, at least, I’m not talking about that). You can literally tell Google Play, for each app, whether it is allowed to auto-update or not.

So I just leave Empires and Puzzles set to “no,” and then manually update when the update is available AND I’m ready.


Okay, there seems to be two things going on here.

Automatic updates

Automatic updates, which are bad for Empires ( especially if you play on multiple devices ).

Which would make the title “How to Avoid Unrevengable Opponents Due to Automatic Updates”

Garawyn’s device is set to automatic update,
Google randomly picks Garawyn for the 5% roll out of v22,
Garawyn’s device is updated,
Garawyn logs on,
Garawyn’s server data is updated,
Garawyn cannot revenge the 95% of android users still on v21,
Any raids between when Garawyn logged on with v21 and v22 are not revengable.

Android roll out versus Apple full release

Android partial roll out to check for critical bugs ( Apple does not allow this ).

Which would make the title “How To Avoid Unrevengable Opponents With A New Build By Upgrading to v22 Before Everyone Else”


my iPhone is on v21.0.2,
Four Android users raid me,
They all download the APK for v22,
They all are on a different version,
Apple still has the v21.0.2 available for download,
I cannot revenge them,
There is a bug, and the roll out is halted,
I cannot revenge them,

A different six Android users raid me,
They all download the APK for v22.1
Apple still has the v21.0.2 available for download,
I cannot revenge any of the ten previous raids,

These ten raids have been popped off my raid log stack,
Apple finally approves v22.1,
The Devs activate Apple’s v22.1

I mean the first, not the second–but actually many people manually update but still don’t log back in to alert the server that they’re on a new version. I’m hoping to help those people too.

I’m not a big fan on sideloading. It creates a large security hole.

after the last update of the game, half of the alliance cannot get into the game. When you enter the game, there is an update and sends it to the playmarket, but there are no updates. Get a vicious circle - you can not enter the game without updating, but there is no update

At least half of my teammates skip revenge because revenge is not a great use of raid energy. In fact this is the first MMO I have played that has a revenge feature.

The original advice would also seem to help people playing on one apple device and one android device or who do not want to be part of the initial phased roll out checking for critical bugs.

It seems the title would reach more people:
“Update tips for avoiding new build headaches and reducing unrevengable raids”

A post was merged into an existing topic: Unable to access new stronghold levels (Answer: they won’t be enabled until the update is rolled out to everyone)

make sure google play is up to date

Indeed. This is always sound advice.

I guess I just lost out my game updates by it’s self and did this morning so revenge is out of the books.

I would like to understand what are devs doing , i just got attacked by a player that wont allow me to make revenge because that player still didnt update the game, this is so wrong i mean if there is a update to make the players shouldnt manage to enter the game untill the update is made.

i also dont agree and i believe i am not the only player thinking the same, why where are new updates of building or another new stuff why does some countrys get the update long before another countrys like Europe.

I really dont understand that if a update of a game is being made it should be at the same time to the entire world because this game is the 1st i see that since the mobiles where made.

About revenge, I don’t understand why it bothers you sincerely :thinking::thinking: you can just raid someone else in the mean time.

Also, no one gets any new feature faster then others, it takes about 2 days to completely roll out an update, and once everybody has access to it, only then they pop the new features on. So everyone will get the new buildings at exactly the same time

My fellow i can tell that the update comes out first in some countrys then the others i have friends in other countrys where the update comes 1st then Portugal that you can be sure of it

Please see the top post in this thread for how to avoid the issue.

I’m rather interested in the reason why I can’t revenge raids against people with another app version, while I can fight them in wars and maybe also in the tournament. What’s the technical reason?

Good question. I don’t think SG has ever said.

I have same issue. You aren’t alone
