Dear devs.. please make it mandatory to play online or gtfo off the forums, min number of online games to post regarding balance of atleast 50 games.
No single playing allowed until 20 multiplayer games.
Really? You actually want to completely cut off single player from an individual until they have played 20 multi-player games? You do realize that this is a game that people buy to entertain themselves? And not a Communist nation? Right?
People pay to do what they want to with a game. If the Devs did what you are suggesting, then the total number of people playing SINS would decrease to approx 200 people. That is 125 more than the most I have seen on ICO at any one time. Which is about 68 people. I am being very generous with that first number. After the 20 games, all the people that played multiplayer just to get back to single player would quit multiplayer, and you would be in same boat, except now StarDock would have lost many many eager, paying fans. They would not make another Sins game because their fan base would be gone.
I enjoy playing Single player because I don't want to have half my team rage quit, and then be facing 4 pro players. AI players die hard. Human players have places to go, and stuff they have to do, and whatnot. AI players live to die at your hands, or to help you kill your enemies. Human players can be complete jerks or charitable do-gooders. AI players are reliable in that none are evil, none are kind.
Also, no forums? Really? So, you force people to do something they don't want to do, just so they can enjoy something that they bought using their Hard-Earned Money, and they can't complain or tell like-minded people about it until they do so? Sound familier, folks? Thats right! Communist!
