A big change in this version is the upgrade to HTTP/2 – the protocol that the Turf Wars app uses for all communication with the servers. This should translate into slightly faster connection times and responsiveness, most noticeably when on slower connections. While it will be invisible to most players, this is a far-reaching change, so please let us know via Feedback if you notice an increase in connection issues with version 2.96.

Android Version 1.43 Released!

Android version 1.43 of Turf Wars is now live! This version completes the recent migration of Turf Wars from Google’s legacy GCM notification system to its newer Firebase Cloud Messaging system. It also fixed a crash that was affecting some Oreo and Pie devices.

The transition between notification systems should be seamless – you don’t need to take any action or change your notification settings as part of this move. However, if you are experiencing notification issues, and following the steps in the isn’t fixing them, please contact us via the Feedback button on the Home screen and we will be happy to help track down the issue.

iOS Version 2.95, Android Version 1.42 Released!

iOS version 2.95 and Android version 1.42 of Turf Wars are now live! These versions include an update to the geocoder options, removing the discontinued Google Geocoder on both iOS and Android, as well as the standard Apple Geocoder on iOS. These and all future versions of Turf Wars — iOS and Android — will use the OpenStreetMap Geocoder only, making turf validity and location names consistent for all players.

In addition, starting Wednesday, September 19 at 7:00AM local time, all newly-claimed turf will automatically use the OpenStreetMap Geocoder for determining placement validity and location, regardless of the version of Turf Wars being used. Existing turf will not have their locations updated. Please see the page for details.

Thanks to everyone for their feedback and their patience as we worked to migrate Turf Wars to the new system!

iOS Version 2.94 Released!

iOS version 2.94 of Turf Wars is now live! This version includes an update the the Google Geocoder, making it compatible with recent changes made by Google to their Geocoder Service API. As a result, its reliability should improve significantly.

Please note that we are currently evaluating the status of the Google Geocoder on iOS devices. Recent changes to Google’s pricing structure for their services may make continued support of the Google Geocoder untenable, and if so, may result in it being removed in a future version of Turf Wars. We will provide ample notice to the Turf Wars community if any changes are expected.

iOS Version 2.93 Released!

iOS version 2.93 of Turf Wars is now live! This version updates both Flurry and Tapjoy to the latest versions.
