I just planned to buy 3 copies of settlers 7 for me and my friends to enjoy, but after reading comments and messages on this forum..
I can only ask WTH ARE YOU THINKING?! I mean people have to hack their games to be able to play NORMALLY?!? This is just too crazy.
I mean the game is beautiful, I have seen it, I have played it, I wanted to buy enough copies for my friends to enjoy and WTH is this?! Single player game pausing until the network connection is back?! That's the most ****ed up thing I have ever heared!!!
Who would buy a car that would stop every time sun goes behind a cloud?!?! Your marketing guys must be on some heavy and EXPENSIVE drugs to come up with a scenario, where hacked game is BETTER than the legal version.
So publish official no-server patch and I'll consider buying this for my friends, until then I'll enjoy the improved version.
