  • you can't start a game offline - This is probably the biggest killer, especially for trying to play a game with people on the other side of the planet. You have to both be logged on, and actively looking for a ranked match for it to connect. Getting a DX sked for ham radio is easier.
Agreed. I'll add one specific to Ogre: I can't play a single player scenario while looking for a multiplayer match. If I have one already started I can, but not while looking. Which really discourages me from leaving the app open.
