I am also still not very happy with how this has turned out. Yes, I am happy the game is still available, yes I freaking LOVE this game! However, I dished out money with MF as well, thinking I was set like other games I've purchased through Steam or Google Play. Once you buy them, they're yours. I was extremely upset when MF was dumped and we were switched to a new provider and told we'd have to start paying a subscription for something I already paid for.
Yes, I got a free year. That year is now coming to an end. While I appreciate it, this doesn't change the fact that I already paid for the expansions and I'm being asked to pay more. The anger has passed. I'm just really disappointed.
I too have been waiting for an offline version. I only play bots anyway, so this would be perfect for me. I'm happy to pay to add additional expansions as they're released, just like Catan on Google Play (which I've owned for years and haven't been asked for another cent!), and maybe something REASONABLE for the software itself with a GUARANTEE to keep it without being hassled for more money. If anybody reading this has some black market hacked offline version that's functional, for the love of god please hit me up!
I think making those of us that bought expansions with MF for a subscription to something we already paid for isn't right. But you have the power and you know it, so you're using it. Money makes the world go around and sadly, people get greedy and take advantage of others. I will sadly probably pay you because I LOVE THIS GAME! Just know that I really, really hate this and think it sucks.
