[ANNOUNCEMENT] The Future of YoWorld Part 4 (Dec 11th, 2020)

Postby Viking Sam » Fri Dec 11, 2020 12:25 pm

Hey YoFans!

December 31st is fast approaching, as is the end of Flash, which has many YoFans wondering what’s to come. You all have been waiting so patiently for an HTML5 conversion update, so we would like to take the opportunity to outline what we know so far:


YoWorld WILL be here after December 31st

We have been putting a ton of our time and energy into the conversion of YoWorld and Fish World for the last few months. As some of you may have seen, Fish World’s HTML5 version will be rolling out shortly to their players. Something to keep in mind - YoWorld is a more complex game, for this reason, we have a contingency plan in place should the HTML5 conversion not be ready by December 31st.

What is the contingency plan?

You may recall that we did a YoWorld streaming test (Forum link found here). Should we not have the HTML5 version of YoWorld ready to go by December 31st, we plan to stream YoWorld to avoid any disruptions to the player experience. As always, the most reliable option is to play with the YoWorld Desktop app, but if this option isn't available to you, streaming YoWorld will allow for an almost identical player experience once Flash is gone. Nothing is required from our players in order to stream YoWorld, and everything will be as it normally is when you login to play!

When is YoWorld HTML5 expected?

Realistically, we’re expected to have the HTML5 version of YoWorld available to players in early 2021. As previously mentioned, YoWorld is a massive game with hundreds of thousands of items. Due to this, we are taking our time with the conversion process to ensure that we bring you the YoWorld that you know and love.

Temporary Limiting of certain in-game Features
Our primary goal during the HTML5 conversion is the item transfer. Due to this, the new HTML5 YoWorld may be rolled out with some features disabled temporarily. Some examples of this could include the fishing mini-game at the beach, or the racing game.

We understand there is a significant amount of anxiety among players surrounding the HTML5 conversion, and we would like to reiterate our appreciation of your patience during this process. In the coming weeks, we will aim to keep you updated on the progress of the HTML5 conversion. We’re over the moon that you’ve stuck with us this far, and we look forward to spending 2021 (and the years to follow!) with all of you <3

Thank you for the update Sam, look forward to the new yo!

Just want to confirm....if we are realistically going to be getting html5 in early 2021, we will be using the Desktop app or streaming yo from Dec 31st till then?

This still doesn’t explain if we are still required to access Yoworld via Facebook!?
Are we parting with Facebook or not?
How do we login to the game after Dec 31st?
Why can’t you guys just answer this one simple question? o_o

Thank you. :D
If we're going to use streaming for now, I'd suggest adding a warning/note every time you boot up the game that clearly explains this is a temporary solution that's affected by the quality of your internet connection so that inexperienced users or those who don't use the forums don't get tricked into thinking this is the new Yoworld which may lead to disappointment.

Thank you for the update. I for one can certainly survive without fishing or racing.

Agreed :thumbsup:

They can get rid of both, I don't care about those in game.

Like you said: Maybe they can make something new for new people who need to level up.

I never liked that racing anyway LOL

And thank you vikings for update :thumbsup: :)
