Using my SC playing trend as a guide, I have to present a scenario of two different playing profiles.
First, the veteran or the player familiar with WiF mechanics. In the beginning, probably a 10% investment in solitaire and/or AI play and for those that do not have the resources for human play then obviously that will be in the range of 90%, perhaps 10% for Hotseat with a friend or family member. The 90 percentile range for PBEM and Netplay will be the norm for most vets as this game begs for human interaction.
Second, the novice, again in the beginning solitaire/AI play will be the greatest time garnish and as they become accustomed to the features and confident in their playing ability they will seek out the human opponents, so assuredly the reciprocal of the above percentages seem likely.
IMO the most important developmental playing feature for MWiF will be the multi-player per side, Netplay or PBEM, where veterans can get together with the rookies and bring them into the realm of WiF human competition as the game is highly complex.
Curiously, The above does not provide a set of percentages for you.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
