I miss the robot. He was especially good for keeping up practice wheni did not have time for the full challenge and for making me not overthink!! Please bring the robot back.

On an iPad, incoming challenges direct me to Game Center, but there are no indications that the feature is no longer available. It was a great feature.

I've being running a polite 'petition' to request they get reinstated (Got 56 signatures from this forum), but we've had two updates since removal and no sign or word of a return so i guess it's a road of no return.

I miss them SO much :(

If u judge people by if they like it or not umm k cuz u cant judge me. I like it not there because all these peeps arent getting on your nerves requesting u. I dont like it because i liked playing against friends and family for the WIN!!!!!!!!

After months of bugging one of my friends to try DuoLingo, he gets it, we play head-to-head for a week, then you pull the feature without warning. What gives?

I've never seen any challenge/duel option on the Android app or Duolingo website. Was it a rare iphone only feature? I've been using Duolingo for a couple of months.

I have been using this on my ipad for a couple of months now and the challenge part was the best bit, i am so disappointed!!!

Dueling was an IOS exclusive feature since more people use duolingo on an IOS device(I think this is true) and IOS has game center.

Bring Duobot back. I found the challenges very useful especially in forcing me to think quickly.

I updated today and now it is gone :-(

August 2, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/FrankySka

Hey centime,

if you don't mind me asking: what practice options are there at the moment? Specifically, can you still practice golden skills (strengthen weak words), or can you only practice when skills are not gold (in case you know that)?

I have learned the hard way not to update the iPhoneapp (even though I am always tempted) before I know exactly what has changed…

Thanks for the heads up to you two!

Best Franky

August 3, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/fer84

I don't have a golden tree, but I could strengthen at least a golden lesson.

Don't update!

1) Duels are gone,

2) Duobot is gone,

3) it is much more difficult to switch between the courses,

4) There is not a single advantage

August 3, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/FrankySka

thanks fer84! good to know. I won't update any time soon, I guess. I would have liked to have the graph back (which seems to be reintroduced) but I guess not at this 'cost' :-)

August 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/aml0013

Mine disappeared after I updated, too :-( I emailed support and let them know I was looking for it . . . hopefully they will reinstate. Was one of the best features!

August 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Remmo

Totally gutted that the challenge player and bot options are gone. This was an excellent feature that other apps don't give and SO useful for motivation. I really hope this is just an update bug and not intended :(

August 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/abella52

Just happened to me -- a bug fix update and poof a major feature disappears. The duobot was incredibly helpful in reinforcing the lessons. I'm so disappointed I'm not sure I can continue. BOO!!!

September 12, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/abella52

I'm afraid that Duolingo may believe that the Challenge options conflict with their translation service business model. It's a real shame because the challenge questions made Duolingo more of a game which I'm sure helps broaden the appeal of the application. Hopefully they realize that and are drawing up similar features.

September 13, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/4567kitty

Please bring it back. And make it available on the computer. I really liked this, and I think my students would find it beneficial and fun to challenge other students.

Argh! I left four months ago for Europe and have come back to find my favorite option removed!! The dueling was such a great addition because it allowed my family and I to challenge each other each week to determine who has been studying the most! We even made a reward system!!

December 8, 2014

Guess I was too late - my French teacher said something about duolingo "dueling", but I couldn't find it anywhere! Darn it - I wish I gave it a try.
