Playing on PC, using Chrome, Windows 7. Tried HTML5 and gameplay is slower. Everything that was instant before is like on delayed, I pressed buttons two or three times to see if I did something wrong.

Edit - I cleaned browser, as I should do for each new update, and the game sped up some. It is only slightly slower than i'm used to.

1, Scroll bar for Guild chat is frequently tracking the mouse - meaning it's scrolling as I scroll, even if it's not selected ..

2, Lighting effect from random events on the map, are sometimes also lighting up open space, or trees/etc... I would love to screenshot, but as soon as you move / press a button, they stop (very intermittent)

1.128.4ea9d0a68d (11.06.2018 10:37), en_US, WEB 7,1,1,0, Windows 8.1, Chrome/66.0.3359.181, 1304x702, OpenGL Vendor=WebKit Version=WebGL 2.0 (OpenGL ES 3.0 Chromium) Renderer=WebKit WebGL GLSL=WebGL GLSL ES 3.00 (OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.0 Chromium) (512 MB VRAM)

Running on windows 10 and Firefox.

The whole game is slower. Collecting this morning took ages and I gave up trying to collect recurring quests while doing it.

Very disappointing.

When I'm fighting (PvP or GE), sometimes the opposition units move to the bottom of the screen. When this happens they are nearly covered by the units bar at the bottom and it is hard to click on the opposition unit to attack it. I've moved to html version. Previously in the earlier version, I could resize the screen from 100% to 90% and it would shrink the screen and uncover the opposition unit. But now it doesn't - the whole screen shrinks, but the opposition unit remains covered.

Browser: Chrome
OS: Win7 Pro 64bit
Mem: 8Gb
Processor: Intel core i5 4200U @ 1.6GHz
Graphics: Intel HD graphics family, 1686 mb
Dedicated video memory: 64mb

Just changed and cannot copy and paste into the message boards using a mouse, only using the keyboard. Its quite annoying as I need to copy the same message to the odd person here and there.
Chrome - win 10 -

My browser is K-meleon and using an intel core I7, 2.45 mgz, windows 8. Game takes forever to load, will jump when trying to move city around, unresponsive and sluggish. If this become norm then I'm in trouble. I have been playing FOE fo nearly 6 years and also purchased diamonds many times.

Following the latest chrome update i've been trying the HTML5 version and its very disappointing. Gameplay is jerky and sluggish. Often when opening a gb any donors/fp's/rewards are invisible. During city collection the recurring quests go awol necessitating a refresh. More than half the taverns i visit show no tablecloths even though i know they're there somewhere.
I have now gone back to the flash version, hopefully HTML5 will improve in the very near future

just re-tryed html and html is still to slow for my old PC i realy hope they do somthing about it befor they force us all to use html to play FoE , i also hope i'll get the $$$ to buy me a new PC befor it hapens
 
Until last night FoE was playing OK on my PC, through Chrome.
This morning FoE was so slow, it was virtually unplayable. Looked in Settings and saw the HTML5 box ticked. (Not seen it at all before this morning).
Un-ticked the HTML5 box, and the game plays normally again.

@Roobert de Cuestard the reason for HTML being developed had to do with Flash being announced it’d no longer be supported by the company that created Flash

Think of what happened to VHS when DVD and Blu-Ray came. Or what happened to Analog tv’s when we got Digital.

We can’t control what’s happening with Flash on the various browsers because we don’t own Flash or those browsers. So as the deadline gets closer to Flash being phased out you’ll find browsers will change how they interact with the game in preparation to dropping Flash altogether without us doing anything at all to the programming

So if you find your game suddenly switching to HTML that’d be the reason. It’s a browser issue not a game issue. You could try other browsers but I can’t guarantee whether they’d have the same problem at the current time. Even if you try other options and found they didnt it wouldn’t be long before they would


My advice: try the other browser options such as Firefox and Edge/Explorer using HTML anyway. See which one works best for your device for HTML while you still have the use of Flash rather then waiting for when you’ll only have HTML. That way when the time comes you know which browser to go to
 
The game now informs me at times it is running slow, and do I wish to turn off animations. Have not as it doesn’t seem a problem to me.

Also game will suddenly white screen and inform needs reloading, reload and go on. Most often when changing worlds.

Windows 10 updated , usually Chrome

i sometimes need to reload game on flash firefox my pc is to slow to use html i realy hope they do somthing about that for all the players who play on old pc's like me cause if they don't when they'll change it completely to html they'll loose all the players who like me play on an old pc
 
I have tried using html5 for about a week.
Used in Edge and Chrome.
The game crashes regularly, usually when I'm fighting so
this morning I went back to flash.
I hope inno sorts out the crashing before we loose flash.
