thank you @skowy, that is good to hear at least that the game state was unaffected. We're looking into this, essentially it looks like the move was obviously successfully played on the server side, but the error did not properly force a refresh of the game
for you on your phone.
anyone with this issue, can i ask you to try something? If you uninstall alphajax and reinstall it, does the board then look ok to you, do the tiles come back? Don't worry, you won't lose anything, doing this will confirm whether the issue is the state of
the game on your phone or on the server. thanks.
I think this is issue happens in rare cases after swapping tiles, did that happen shortly before the problem in your games?
Essentially what happens is that a played tile gets swapped from a rack (when a move is played but not updated on the phone) and this then goes back into the "bag" and returned to the players when it should not.
A server patch has been issued which will stop the swap being possible. If you get into this situation you should get "Unable to play move" when swapping and a restart of the game should resolve everything.
Played tiles should never able to be swapped and we're continuing to work to try and resolve how this may be happening for some users, it does appear to be quite rare though.
