Well the other game didn't seem to cost that much to program and was free. The only problem with it was that it was bootlegged. Rampage wrestling had a program that was not computer dependent as was tnm 7, the rebirth of pro wrestling superstar game, and a host of others.
I must admit this does worry me. For the past few years I am totally invested in online - I don't order the physical packs anymore. I don't actually use the simulators though, it would be good as I am so so behind and would make things easier to have a hope of maybe one day catching up but I think I noticed enough glitches to put me off doing it that way (so long I can't remember why). So I use game table and effectively play my matches as if it was table top. It's just much easier calling the cards up on screen than rooting through physical cards and charts. I want all my results to be as if it was played in the traditional way.. I never log any results or stuff online, always typed into a word document and saved in triplicate across NAS drives. Can't imagine ever losing all the work - my fed document is 420 pages long now (2087 to where I am now in 2097).
I do make sure I download all the pdf booklets and save them locally so they will never be lost. But unless I am missing something there is no way to get the cards in that way.
Plus, I know I shouldn't feel self conscious but I feel a bit of a wally at nearly 40 years old getting all the cards out even in front of my family rolling away - much more subtle to use game table online! Plus I can get a card or two done whilst on lunch breaks at work!
I weighed the pros and cons of going digital and frankly, just the way I am as a player, it would take me forever to run a full game year if I go by date...and the way I like to keep stats.I've only run one card, but its just more convenient for me online.
if online disappeared, I'd be really sad but I honestly don't think it will as long as the business of FG keeps going.. They may not update it often, but you have passionate players who play both versions of the game and every new release is online same day...it would hurt business too much to go offline only.
