Super sorry to do this, but we have to temporarily disable crossplay as the game has been experiencing a number of serious network related bugs since we set it live. We're working closely with GOG to try to resolve these issues and hope to set it live again soon. If any GOG customers would like to play via a steam key, please message me or the moderators in our Discord channel (discord.gg/pocketwatch) with a screenshot of Tooth and Tail in your GOG library.
Any idea how long it'll be disabled?
I can't send you a message due to your account settings.

Very upsetting, very unsurprising though.
Once crossplay is finalized we will soon find ourselves at the point where the declining playerbase is a real issue.

I'm pretty sure that devs are much more upset than you can ever be.
And I'm also sure that such comments as yours helps nobody.
This is unfortunate but I sincerely hope that whatever issues you guys are facing are resolved soon.

GoG's code is at fault here, unfortunately. But according to Andy they're (GoG) working to fix it.

I wish best of luck fixing this in a timely manner. Looking super forward to multiplayer :D
I'm wondering if this is related to the problems GoG has with their update to Star Wars Battlefront 2 Multiplayer.
I dont suppose theres any news on the reintroduction of cross play? Difficult to get a game with just the folk on galaxy.
WElll If I could go back in time I'd refund when I had the chance and NOT rebuy it on steam. Waste of money, my own fault for listening to people.

Its all the more painful when the devs are good at communcating and seem to care.

If you bought recently you can refund it though so long as you explain the situation clearly and what was promised at launch and what hasn't been delivered.

Wouldn't bother rebuying it on steam unless the playerbase is increasing...and I doubt it is. you can check that online. If its not rising or declining....stay away.

speaks for itself.

You guys released the game too soon, there wasn't enough resources, even basic ones, for a community to grow and develop. No ingame text, no lobby text, no communication outside of external discords that you have to search for online on ur own accord. Botchy ui, limited options. As a standalone package there's nothing to help grow the playerbase outside of the actual gameplay. And the gameplay itself doesn't help these issues, it only makes them worse with all the balance issues and the fact all games (however long they last) are 9/10 times determined in the first 60-90 seconds.

Consider salvaging and going free to play when the newpurchases dry up. The gameplay can carry the game forward, its really good when it works. You can rely on dlc purchases and skins and other zany content to turn it around.

That's simply the RTS community for you. Despite the popularity of StarCraft in Korea and on Twitch, player numbers for the genre as a whole has been low. Highly dedicated players that just rip you apart ("GG Git gud"). All new RTS games had problems with the Online Match playerbase. Grey Goo and Ashes of the Singularity are just my examples, I had high hopes for more variety in the genre. But People are going to stick with the classics. If you want to play something Niche, find a Discord with cool people to meet up and fight.

That's why I love the Splitscreen MP in Tooth & Tail. 4 buddies on my couch in front of a nice HD TV.
