Why would it be impossible to include everything people would be interested in in one place?
Perhaps it would help if it were more clear what "everything people would be interested in" is more carefully defined?
Are you talking about "differences between MWiF and WiF:FE"?
Are you talking about product features of the sort that Matrix might reasonably display on their product page?
Are you talking about a "one-stop" "MWiF-pedia"?
Everything I read here indicates that MWiF will not be an adequate multiplayer platform for WiF. 1v1 hotseat only
The bolded section is an incorrect statement of fact; the un-bolded section is an incorrect inference or "framing" from what is given from the facts.
In his response gridley noted the game comes with 1v1 online play.
On release MWiF has:
- solitaire play
- hotseat play
- 2-player Netplay
This will be extended to include up to 6-player Netplay, solo vs. AI, and multiplayer PBEM.
no board game maps
I confess I cannot see how this is an inadequacy. CWiF, MWiF's predecessor, was commissioned by ADG and includes a unified map scale. From that (and from other scuttlebutt I have read or heard) we can infer that the official computer game version of WiF was conceived by ADG as having a single global map on a unified scale, rather than maps matching those of the boardgame.
The remainder of your comment, save the very end, appears to consist of "in my opinion" statements, and thus can have no sensible response except for others' statements of their opinions. (Such as, for example, me stating that I find the map and counters aesthetically appealing and functionally serviceable).
I will wait until there is a demo or someone does a let's play video of multiplayer online gaming.
An excellent decision, and indeed one I would recommend to anyone who is uncertain about purchase.
