    I love the artworks shown on Warcrow website.
    I'm really expecting to play the wargame as soon as it is released !

    Infinity requires the army builder to create your lists.

    Totally optional, like the army app, since is available via web. And in all N3, you can made list with paper and pencil

    A Web app is still an app, and Windows 11 has a native android app emulator so the Warcrow app can also be run on a laptop or desktop if necessary/desirable

    How is the app optional? Where are you getting the profiles from?

    Army web. And for me, web is not app. I can go to the tournaments without cellphone or tablet and still play. That's not the case with the crawler app.

    Before we had PDFs for profiles, and the web-whatever was downloadable. Not anymore. PDFs were extra time for the staff as it seems the workflow is not very well designed (proof: too many bugs of "different values in different things"), but the downloadable part is probably a check mark in the build process.

    Quacks as a duck, walks as a duck... CB is moving towards depending more in electronics (which is different than providing the option) and increasing fragility. Remember it next time you get the damned 503 error.

    Complaining about something is managed through an App/Web in 2022 is pure haterism...
    Almost everything in my life needs some sort of web connexion or App running, come on, boys.

    Not because everything in your life requires an app make them any good or a good sign, quite the contrary ^^'

    And like Fari stated "web isn't app": It's much wider accessible, easy to use and have less requirements from your customers, and you can still print the data out and calculate them yourself simply (for curent "army app"), or just print out the lists/courtesy lists while off to play and still not loosing a thing.

    To me, I play tabletop games to play tabletop. If I wanna play something with an app, I play videogames instead.

    One of the reasons I've bought various dungeon crawlers is in case of prolonged loss of power, so I'd prefer them to no require an app. Likewise, there's always fears of incompatibility or discontinuance in the future. I have plenty of other ones at this point, so may get Warcrow anyway, but the app being required is not a plus for me.

    I'd like it as a preview of the skirmish game, but I'm also leery given that Defiance rules were not especially well done. So we'll see I suppose.

    No, it's a recognized issue that you simply bought into, full send. That doesn't mean it's OK for a company to release a product with planned obsolescence of this kind, which will make the game useless as soon as the app stops being updated to conform to platform standards and is removed.

    All happy flowers until "computer says no". It's a sad joke with all the resilience this, resilience that, while making everything more brittle. As said already: being done does not mean it has to be good; they are different axis. Heard about that guy that lost a lot of his "virtual persona" (file backups, email account, etc) because he had medical photos of his kid in the phone? Full Brazil style. Maybe we should re-aim were things are going. I read somewhere that we can not imagine other futures than dystopias, however there is still people that can think better futures (solarpunk, the background of Star Trek or Iain M. Banks, eg), it's just more that some are obsessed with pushing dystopias as the only possible path.

    Tech is nice when it adds over something already useful, not when it becomes handcuffs. /rant

    120/300€ price tag is hefty. 120€ fine, but (if I understand this correctly from Belen‘s post; 120+180) 300€ for platinum :frowning: You better bring some cool content for platinum CB.
