New Feature Request » Download Custom Maps for Offline Solo Play » Go to message
I don't know how feasible this would be to implement, but how about allowing players to download custom maps for offline play? There are a ton of great custom maps out there, and sometimes people want to try them out without having it affect their win-loss ratio. It could also prove useful for those who want to practice on tournament maps on their own. Of course, there would need to be a way to delete maps from devices once they are no longer wanted (after all, not all of us have unlimited device storage). For the developers, this could even turn into a source of revenue. Map tokens are currently used for uploading maps as a means of controlling map-spam. Perhaps these tokens cold perform double duty and be used as a means of regulating/controlling how many maps people can download to their device's storage. There would, of course, need to be a mechanism in place to differentiate between downloading a map for offline play versus downloading a map to use as a template for creating a new map (which currently is and should remain free); however, since not everyone is interested in creating maps and there are a good number of players who do, in fact, enjoy playing quick games against the bot in offline mode, implementing such a system could result in an increase of the number of people purchasing map tokens. As for those who worry that such a system might result in Uniwar Turing into a pay-to-win product, please keep in mind that the current system of practicing tournament maps in online play either against another person or against one of the bots would still be available for free. Much like the turn undo button, this is simply a matter of convince and not an attempt to make the game unfair/biased against those who don't want to spend money on the game.
