Ah sorry, misunderstood you.

Yeah that would work!

Hmm, well, Ticket to Ride Pocket doesn't seem to mind it (granted this isn't Universal...), nor does Carcassonne and they both use GC.

I still can't seem to get past 1/2 turns against randoms. Don't know if it's bugged or they're rage quitting...

I wish it would show gamecenter names for multiplayer matches instead of "Player 2", which is kind of lame. I've also had to kill the app via the taskbar a few times to get the other person's move to show up.

Edit - So if you're on the main menu and you enter your async game again and it's not your turn yet, there doesn't seem to be a way to go back to the main menu without getting the "All current match progress will be lost. Are you sure you want to exit?" screen. WTF?

Edit - If the other player moves while you're in the game, it doesn't seem to ever update. I had to kill the app to get it to show up. Also, tapping on a notification from the game doesn't bring you into the game. Maybe I'm just used to a really polished game like Carcassonne.

Edit - Async multiplayer is CRAP for this game. I'm sitting next to my friend and the games are totally out of sync. Worms with different damage, different parts of the map are blown up... just wow.

So for some reason, my friend can always start an asynchronous match with me with no problem, but it always gives me an error when i try to start one with him.

The error message is "Unable to create match - Please try again later."

Anybody else having this issue?

The icon is retina but actual gameplay is not. It doesn't look terrible but things like the weapons and fire buttons are noticibly blurry.

I love this game, but haven't played multiplayer yet, can you use the teams you've made in multiplayer?

Yeah, the graphics just don't look good on my new ipad, wish they would update this to new ipad retina but I doubt it will ever happen.

Also, how do you delete an asynchronous game center game youve created?
