S! gents,

I know this is non EAW related but since it has appeared that most of us here have been closely following the prgress of this new sim, I wanted to get your attention.

I don't know much of the details but have been led to believe that unless Wayward designs is made aware of just how much we would like to play this ONLINE as well as off, less support will be given to this issue.

Could you all please go here
http://www.bombs-away.net/

and on the right of the page you will see votes.........
Please go and vote for ONLINE.
This could be very important for us who like to fly in the 'online' medium.

Pharaoh,

If you looked closely at the survey, most of the votes are for both On-line/Off-line playing time. Which is probably what most people here do with EAW. I fall into that category also. Sometimes I like to fight against humans, other times I'd rather fly a smooth mission for once without the lag.

I would not like Wayward turn this sim into an "on-line" only game. Next thing you know it's pay-per-game, and then it turns into AWIII or WB.

You're quite right Lucky, I certainly wouldn't want that! I did not see the survey and was going by word of mouth; please forgive me.

I think you both have valid points. I must say that whilst I'd appreciate a decent online experience with this new sim, I live in the UK where being online costs LOTS!. We are promised this will change, but for now I think any serious developer (I count Wayward as one) should spend equal amounts of time and effort on both styles of play. You'll only end up alienating one or the other.

I am waiting for B172 also and interested mostly in the online play.

Wayward is building what we all hope is a masterpiece and I think that what little disappointment is suffered will be in the online capabilities.

We were expecting way more numbers than we are going to get online but I belive most of us on both sides of the off/online issue are going to get something very good indeed.
