    Also the downloadable client is a Windows .exe - not so useful for those of us playing on MacOS or Linux.

    Flash support will be removed from Chromium (Chrome, Opera, Edge, Steam, downloadable SettlersOnline client) on version 87+ in December 2020

    And in a world without flash support from browsers, what'll be the alternative when the client does not function properly? I tried using it a few times, but it never worked.

    The change in Chrome 67 is that it clears the flash settings on startup. That means every time we restart the browser we have to re-allow flash content on TSO.

    Since latest chrome update I get a warning message when I load the chrome browser about the end of support for flash in 2020.

    It would be nice to have some feedback / information about the plan; I am loathe to invest in the game when I have no idea whether or not I will still be able to play after Xmas; I am really tempted to buy more gems (Anniversary Event, couple of Endless mines) but if the game only has another 4 - 5 months life then it is not worth it.
    An update would be much appreciated
