I am big enough to admit when I am wrong.

Good job... Now...

Minigames, and DuOff manager, thank you.

As I mentioned in this thread:
Quote:
This is going to be the initial release/ beta phase, and will have just the first set of features -- it really can only grow from here. We'd love for players to get their hands on what we've developed thus far so we can collect feedback and input. We want the DOFF system available and are working on it -- it's a massive undertaking for Cryptic's Core team and everyone is just as excited for the possibilities as you are ... In order to implement a DOFF system out of the game, these features had to be developed and implemented first. The priorities are spot on for future features to fall in place.
Cheers,

But it's not going to be an "app" per se -- players can access it from their computers through a web browser, or on mobile devices (tablet, smartphones, etc.) through their mobile broswers. Some smartphones/ tablets will even let you "save" a website so an icon is placed on your homescreen for quick access.

Interesting.
When will the KDF version come out?
This is not as good as it used to be...

And that is a cop out... Mobile browsers are junk at the best of times... and you cant do half the things you would be able to do with a native app.

I was excited... but now Im just sad.


EDIT: And if its a website... why not let us use it now?

But but but we need the ability to say "There's an app for that!"

Ok, then... if not an app, do you use flash? HTML5?

Then my curiousity is piqued. I don't have a smart phone, but I have a phone that can access the internet. It's a Verizon Feature Phone, can even play Youtube videos.

Will I be able to access it? Will it require specific plugins, flash, or anything?

Can I call down an orbital strike while in traffic?

What about dispatch a shuttle to pick up my dry-cleaning?

Randomly beam people where the sun doesn't shine?


Those are the features I think need to be developed before silly things like "doff management." Nuking things from orbit is way WAY more important.

Great job to all involved, a viable mobile presence from Cryptic was a big item on my personal wishlist. Hopefully it will progress into something that includes exclusive mobile-only doff missions or even Exchange access, but for now, this looks great! Kudos to you guys
