As @VincentMaths shows, it appears if you login with you FaceBook or Google+ account to the CodeCombat site there should be a link on the multiplayer screen to allow you to connect to friends. The link should look like the image below: ![|267x100](upload://qXhmp8iTm6cTOuXiO6CbPkeE4JB.png) ( Thank you @Vlevo for image )

Q: I submitted my code for a ladder why don’t I see any matches?

Answer Click to View

A recommendation would be to start gem farming as the simulations sometimes stop. If no one else is simulating then you wouldn’t see a change in your ranking or new matches from what I understand.

Q: How do I see the new gems I am awarded? How do I get the ladderville award?

Answer Click to View

A: Click the game sound button 20 times and you should see your gems update on the campaign map as well as an award display. As you play through the levels your new gems should show up automatically as well. So you don’t need to do this to be awarded. If you are trying to buy equipment and you don’t see the new gems, this might also be a way to ensure they show up before you go to the gear shop.

It is my understanding that your account gets the gems awarded regardless if you do this trick or not. This trick might just allow you to see an updated total.

And this award will show up.

Then click the browsers refresh button and you should see more gems!

Q: Why can’t I get the VS Shaman CPU achievement?

Answer Click to View

So this is a bit complicated. It appears at one point there was talk about awarding players for beating subsequent higher computer AI’s. However, if you look at the opponents in the “Play as Red” screen you will notice that there is no “Shaman CPU” name in the line up.

So the only way to play against the “Shaman CPU” is to click on its Fight! link in under the “Ladder tab”.

But this still will not award you the achievement even if you win this way.

The only way reported that you will get this achievement currently is if you randomly fight the Shaman CPU while having your game simulated. In a ladder of 10,000 players this is unlikely to happen.

Q: My browser has crashed / locked up from simulating games is this a bug?

Answer Click to View

If your web browser is actually locking up or crashing when simulating games there might be an issue. Read through the bug report to see if you are in a similar predicament and let them know on the forums that there may be an issue again.
