I am just voicing an opinion ...
I think that Starman's response was directed at me rather than you. =P
I am quite sure I was clearly expressing my opinion and thoughts.
I am quite sure that you came off more demandy than you perhaps intended.
"I do strongly object and will vote with my money to apps that are integral to a game."
"If I wanted a computer game I would buy one."
"Why didn't they survey us as users of the forum we are clearly their customers."
This may not be how you intended to sound, but taken all together, your post makes you sound petulant about the fact that FFG has made a design decision you disagree with.
I was not condemning their choice at a hybrid ugame or even suggesting it was a new idea.
"I see enough screens at work and as a reference / social contact format at home."
"Why buy X-wing when I could have a far better computer simulation... my answer/choice is personal preference and I have bought a lot of X-Wing."
"I would never invest in a game that relies on current technology to be available for the next 2-10 years."
"My investment could be destroyed by FFG dropping the On Line resource , my tablet not supporting it etc etc."
Again, this may not be how you intended it, but that sounds fairly condemning of the idea of an app/board game hybrid to me.
I get the feeling from you that I shouldn't be allowed to voice an opinion.
You are clearly able to read more into my knowledge and motives than I am.
I get the feeling from you that you just enjoy complaining about stuff, and anyone who takes you to task for what you actually said is an aggressor, subverting your freedom of speech.
I don't claim to know what goes on inside your head, nor what motivates the words you choose to post in these forums. I can only respond to what you actually say. If the response you're seeing surprises you, perhaps you should take a moment to consider how your post might read to someone other than yourself.
I'll be the first to admit that the lack of tone of voice or body language in forums such as this can sometimes cause a perfectly innocent post to come off as offensive to another reader.
If my response offended you, then I apologize sincerely, but understand that your initial post also came off as a lot more intense than you perhaps intended.
