Extremely important news, everyone!
We have made a decision to decommision the Silverlight client on the 7th of October this year. This was a hard decision, but a truly necessary one. The main reason is that it is just not feasible for us to maintain both servers and clients in the long term. So we decided to fully concentrate and commit ourselves to polish the HTML5 version as much as possible in the following month. It is already perfectly playable and everyone is invited to try it out. In fact, it is in your own interest, since after the 7th of October, you won't be able start new games in the Silverlight client anymore. So please, please let us know of any breaking bugs that might affect the game experience for you! From our side, we'll do our best to address all the feedback.

Couple of main points:

  • You won't be able to create new games in the Silverlight version from October the 7th
  • You would still be able to finish any games started before the 7th
  • Until implemented in HTML5, both map & scenario editors would be accessible via the Silverlight version

Please post your feedback regarding the HTML5 version in HTML5 bug reports and HTML5 discussion forums.

The 15th of September is *tomorrow.* In my personal view the HTML version still needs several months of development. I'm hoping that September was stated in error.

Also please tell me you aren't going to kill all the casual games running in Silverlight right now.

Thanks, it was meant to be October, obviously. Casual games will remain and will still be playable, just that you won't be able to start new ones.

Yeah I saw that you edited the post and I deleted my original after I saw you addressed the concern about casual games.

Silverlight is not updated anymore, it's not supported in google chrome and it will probably not be supported for long except in IE. That's good enough reason to move on.

Even the latest IE version ("Edge") doesn't support Silverlight. SL's well and properly dead and we should all move on.

Nice but please bring back the zoom out to have more range trick. It no longer works and is gamebreaking, the game isn't the same without it. A shit ton of movements aren't possible in HTML5 because of it.

Explain how it needs more work, otherwise you won't be seeing what you want to be implemented - implemented.

Bad graphics.

This is what I see that players are saying most of the time: Bad graphics. Probably #1 reason to like SL more than HTML.

The map and everything that's on it is already pretty much on par with SL (unless you zoom in the browser, which you shouldn't do). So I think we're pretty good here. Other things, like making certain things look better on smaller resolutions (like the lobby / chat), certainly need some work.

ummm... not really. I believe all those players took SS with 100% zoom. But here are mines:

Or there is any other zoom I should use?

I though the problem was in my screen, so I tried making the page shorter... the graphics improved a bit(almost not noticeable but I can see some cities better) but the size of the screen doesn't really wort it... http://i.imgur.com/MKg8ssz.png

Well, any chances you can add the light background that SL cities have? That's very noticeable, if added I believe we could compare them better.

I don't see the difference between Silverlight and HTML5 in game mechanics, just in website design. Gaming is the same, which mean you did a good job. Now return old dark background and it will be perfect.
