Ability to play solo offline Wed, 09 February 2011 01:04
I am not sure if this has been posted already but it would ideal to be able to play solo games while offline similar to TTR. When travelling for work you don't have an internet connection on a plane.

I understand you have to pay a certian amount of ingots to play and these are subtracted from your account when you are online but maybe they could be cached on your laptop and removed when you go online.

The other option would be to sell the game for a set price that would allow for offline play and then purchase expansions when you want them. I understand the reoccuring revenue stream of the online model but this option would be ideal for a good percentage of your audience as well.

Sorry guys but it won't happen, at least not anytime soon. The issue is not a payment one per se, but rather the fact that this would require us to do a major rewrite of the software. Needless to say, this makes it an unlikely feature... We've already got our plate full doing what we really want to focus on (ie PvP play that resembles playing the board game) Rolling Eyes

That's just crazy talk.
