  • Answer (From Kabam) on why the Attack Push Notifications are no longer available

    So I have seen a ton of threads on these boards about attack notifications being removed from the game. Well here is the answer from Kabam.

    Hello ,

    Thank you for writing back in regarding Push Notifications. This feature was only working one certain devices and specific versions of the game, but the decision has been made to remove this feature.

    As fellow players we understand the importance of accurate intelligence and why this change has caused so much frustration in our community: these notifications were central to many players' defensive strategy.

    Unfortunately, push notifications were incompatible with the majority of players' mobile operating systems. In the interest of fairness, our development team has since removed them from the game. We're deeply sorry for any anger caused by this decision.

    Thank you so much for your patience and understanding,

    Regards,

    KoC: Battle for the North Support

    IMO this is due to the game being released to Android phones. There are may android phones in use still that do not allow for push notifications. Which they would need to be able to get in order for this to work. With the little knowledge that I have of code I think the main issue was that that section of the code was causing major issues with those older phones. So they most likely just deleted that function in the game to remove that bug for those players. It sucks that we all have to suffer though.

      To me, it's not even the Attack Push Notification that matters. If I understand that correctly, that was the "your city is under attack" notification. Why cant we even get a Mail Notification? At least then we would get alerted when we have just been attacked (since report is mailed automatically). It still notifies me when my Reassign is complete. How can I get an alert that my Light Cavalry training is complete, but not that I have received mail? I'm no tech, but that makes no sense to me.

      It just sucks closing down KoC for a little while to find out that you've been attacked 8 times without any Mail Notification. Honestly, if Mail Notification can't be fixed, then what's the point?

        That is a great question Itoslemma, to which I don't understand. I also don't understand how some notifications can work IE... Buildings and Troops finishing... ETC. But that one not.

          It seems to me that these notifications are simply timers set when you start an action. I have had my account logged out of my phone and still got notified that things I started before I switched devices were complete.

            Even though you are logged out I still believe that the push notification will come because the app is still installed and that is were the "timer" is stored. Now I am no expert but I would think it would live within the app and pushes it to the phone when the "timer" runs out. The login info doesn't matter once you have set the build
