Default ROF online shenanigan.

Most of you have probably heard by now that Rise of Flight will only be playable online, there will be no offline mode. I thought it would be a good idea to vote, so we can see how many of us are for the idea, even though I think the answer is already obvious.

EDIT: There will be Single Player mode but it will require you to be online while playing.

The question is badly worded.

Many will think that there's no Single Play mode as well... and there's one, that requires an online connection at game start (and at game end to submit statistics).

Question should be:
Should ROF have a SP mode without online connection?

The fact is, you will have to be connected while playing so that your stats can be recorded.

Here are two qoutes from an interview with the team:

Do I need an internet connection to play ROF?

Yes, because first of all we are talking about online service, where you can get together with many other people with same interests, where you can get in groups and play against other users or AI and many more.


Can I play ROF in offline mode?

No, you can't.

Yes, BUT some people will think that no offline mode = no single player mode ; and there will be a single player mode. That's the point Rama raised, I believe.

I think that they are making a grave mistake on this...I believe they will loose 50 to 70% of the sale's that they could of had...I'm out!...and a really dumb idea they have, that will bother me forever.

I'm really not trying to knock the team or anything, the idea has its benefits, so long as the game can also be played without an internet connection. Thanks for all the replies so far.

That's just the problem, you can't play it without an internet connection. There are two huge discussions going on over at simHQ about it and most are not happy. There are a couple that are in support of it, and that's fine but as many are stating this is going to be a bad move. Most there will agree that this is due to pirating, ironicly enough this move may cause the sim to be pirated in much larger numbers to get around the online only connection. Maybe the devs will see the error of their ways with the bad sales and change it in the near future.

Either that, or a crack to play offline will come out, and coincide with a huge jump in sales.
